Would never hire again or never recommend to anyone!!!
Talks a great game however doesn't deliver the goods. Fails to give good followup service as advertised and quality of workmanship provided is extremely poor. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being extremely poor and 10 extremely good for overall service City Wide rates a 1 based on our experience with them.
The job we hired them for was quite simple.. put down a ceramic foor in a smallish bathroom (approx. 36 sq ft) a 220 sq ft kitchen and 2 small landings at the front and side doors. All furnture was previously removed and they simply had to install the cermic tiles. My wife was told that because the kitchen floors has creaks that they would have to pour down a thin layer of leveling cement. I did not find this out until it was to late as half the floor in the kitchen was already laid and I the husband didnot know that this was supposed to be done. They really took advantage of the fact that my wife who all the arrangements were made had to be away for a family emergency. Unfortunately it seemed that the personel didn't understand how to lay a floor level and use a tape measure. Tiles around door frames were cut uneven and poorly measured and the tiles around the floor vents were cut so that large gaps were left between the edge of the vents and the tiles . Grout was even worse..it was applied unevenly , in some areas it was very thin and you can see the underlying bonding cement and around the doors and stairs there was no grout at all On top of all of this, they even managd to put holes in the walls where they took the old baseboard off and left them unrepaired. Clean up was poorly done as grout and cement was splattered on walls and tubs and tracked all over the hardwood floors and just left, no attempt was made to claean it up. The side door landing was left totally uncompleted, Finally to top it off when we went to have our Natural Gas stove put back in place they had damgaged the natural gas pipe and fittings so that we had to call in a natural gas technician and have the pipe checked and the fittings and connecting pipe replaced due to their negligence.
When we called to complain about all the issues the owner said he would come and see us the next day.. as of the writing of this we are still waiting for him to show up. What good is his guarentee on workmanship. So far it has taken both my wife and I over 48 hours to clean up and fix their mistakes. Like we said.. all talk!!!! So a tile floor should last a very long time now we know it willnot last as long because the tiles are not even and will crack. Nice job guys.
Below is a list of the issues that we encountered after we checked over the work down by City Wide
side entrance way not completed was not even grouted right to the mall
tile around heat registers not cut properly gap so large it can not be concealed, and you would think that if you cut a tile wrong you would recut another one
tiles around door frames and stairwells not cut and grouted properly and trim not replaced
had to reclean and recaulk bathroom fixtures and they took the chair rail off behind the bathroom door and did not replace it and that style of chair rail is no longer available
area behind stove not grouted
hole in kitchen wall where baseboard removed
hole in front entrance way wall where baseboard was removed
many areas on kitchen floor not grouted properly.. insufficient grout
damaged cold air return vent
cement tracked onto hardwood floors
transitions between ceramic and hardwoods not done properly
floor registers in kitchen do not sit properly do to cement poured into heating vents
cement splatter on decorative wallboard and tub in bathroom and not cleaned off
trim removed and not replaced
bathroom closet door will not close properly now because trim was not put back on properly
doors were cut and did not sand down the rough areas
Mike took care of my repair very quickly and did a excellent job. I was pleased with his work and came back to do a couple touch ups I needed done. His price was very reasonable and he stayed on budget for the job.
Mike did a great job under some very difficult and trying circumstances. Main thing is he did it well and very cheerfully. That in itself was most encouraging. Besides his rates were very reasonable. Mike knows the city codes well and he should be your first choice too.

Whether your basement is an empty shell or half finished, we can help you finish it to your specifications. Unfinished basements are wasted space. Finishing it can increase your living space, livability and resale value of your home. We can convert it into a legal apartment for extra income.
From demo to reno, additions or moving your kitchen, plumbing and all, we can help. Whether you need to completely revamp your kitchen or just want to add a backsplash, we can help.
Repairs, demos, renos...if you have questions, call our lead General Contractor Mike and talk to him. He's personable and knowledgeable and there's not much he can't do.
Once, a family home was ravaged by a terrifying fire and they were displaced as their once happy home was destroyed. Thankfully, no one was hurt but they were certainly eager to get home. We demo'd and drywalled all three floors of their house and started them on their journey to returning home.
Now that you've demo'ed and reno'ed that space, sometimes we don't know what to do with it. If decorating is not your thing and you find it a bit intimidating, we have a design expert on hand who can help you out. We'll even provide a personal shopper, if you need.
Falling down shed or fence...sometimes we're overwhelmed by the work needed around the house. So overwhelmed that it just goes undone, year after year. We can help you demo those eye-soars and that sense of dread those projects bring you can be replaced with a sense of accomplishment.
If you've got a deck or porch that's structurally unsound or has seen better days, we can fix it or redo it. If you simply want to add a deck to your outdoor space and turn it into a 'staycation' sanctuary, you're speaking our language!
Drywall! We love it. We could mud and tape all day long...and in doing so, give you the finished and polished look of a completed, renovated living space. Then when we're done, sit back, put your feet up, look at the results and smile.
A fresh coat of paint can liven up any space. The colours you choose can say a lot about you and your space. But if you'd rather leave the painting to someone else or if the wall that needs paint is too high, leave the hard work to City-Wide.
