Craig, Warren and their team were punctual, professional and patient with our questions. And they made great suggestions for design. They are down to earth and easy to talk to. They always cleaned up after working every day. Our basement went from being scary to something we are proud of and excited about. Who would have thought we would enjoy doing laundry now.
Thank you Cindy and Dave. A true pleasure working with you and helping you get a part of your renovations completed. Always able to help out great clients like you. Enjoy the laundry room and basement!!
Our vision was to convert our smallest bedroom into a large, user-friendly bathroom that will allow us to stay in our home as we age. Our existing tiny bathroom was to be transformed into an efficient office/storage space. Cross Durham Home Upgraders exceeded our expectations in every regard. From our first meeting with Craig we felt confident in trusting him with the job. All plumbing was relocated to the new room and a beautiful, large, custom shower was constructed from scratch. A gorgeous large vanity was installed along with incredible lighting and a new ceiling exhaust fan with venting. They indulged my choices of finishes without complaint :) My new office work area and storage shelving was installed efficiently to maximize the use of the small space. Craig and Warren consulted us throughout the 3-week project as questions arose. All subcontractors they brought in were professional and outstanding at their own specific trade. One of our stipulations was that they would work every day until completion and not leave us until the job was done. They honoured that commitment 110% even working a couple of evenings and Saturday mornings. They greeted our dog every morning (Lucy misses you guys) and left the work area clean before leaving each day. We highly recommend Cross Durham Home Upgraders for your next renovation project. In fact, we have already consulted Craig about 3 more projects at our home. Give him a call - you won’t be disappointed!
Craig and his crew were absolutely AMAZING in both the work they completed as well as their professionalism and overall experience having them in our home for the 6 weeks our project was under way.
WORK completed included a full gut and bathroom reno x2, ship lap install and new main level floors (inc baseboards). They offered lots of options and guidance on selecting the right products for our home and budget - demonstrating a knowledgeable approach to the project planning stages. All work completed was as we expected, great quality, no concerns with shortcuts or workmanship...overall 10/10 on all finished items.
PROFESSIONALISM was actually the thing I would like to illustrate the most. I have had many contractors over my homeownership years enter our home and never have we had such a good experience as we did with Craig and his crew. I work from home and they were always respectful, as non disruptive and polite as could be, were WONDERFUL with our dogs (3...yes 3 large - in your way all day sort of pups). They were so kind and pet friendly and I had no concerns leaving them unattended in our home with our dogs and house if I needed to step out for a period of time.
I found the prices fair, communication clear and what timelines were set were followed through on. They were here every day until the work was done - showed up on time and cleaned up before leaving each day.
Thank you so much Nicole. Absolute pleasure working with you and your team of four legged "inspectors". You were very accommodating and easy going and I appreciate your patience through all the projects. Any time we can help we will be there. Thank you again for your business and awesome review.
We hired Cross Durham Home Upgraders to renovate our dated powder room. They removed layers of very old wallpaper, a built-in medicine cabinet, and patched so many holes in the walls and where a suspended wood ceiling was removed. We thought we would need new drywall, but thanks to their superior patching skills we have beautiful walls! New tile flooring, toilet, vanity, and quartz countertop, and trim left us with a beautiful new powder room.
Craig and Warren were excellent in communicating throughout the project, checking in with us on small details. Their creativity with a few challenges the space presented speaks of true professionals who take the time to ensure the work is done right and the customer is happy.
From the quote visit right through to the beautiful result, Craig and his team were very professional. They arrived on time each day, worked efficiently, and left the work area tidy and clean. The project was completed on time and on budget. This is a company that takes pride in their work – and it shows!
We highly recommend Cross Durham Home Upgraders and will definitely call on them again for any future projects!
Thank you so much for the kind and awesome review Cheryl. We love hearing feedback like this and are so glad you are happy with the results. All the best and if we can help out in the future, we would love to help out.
I hired Cross Durham Home to do a complete bathroom renovation. It was time for an update as it had been nearly 25 years since anything was done to the bathroom.
Craig came in with professionalism and transparency. I could ask him or his crew, Warren and Jimmy, anything. They raised any concerns with me along the way of the renovation.
When I say renovation, I mean, they totally gutted the bathroom. Removed and replaced all the dry wall, flooring, tub, toilet, vanity, lights, fan, bathroom door and painted. I was able to pick out my vanity, shower doors, paint colours, flooring and fixtures. Some things were picked with the recommendation from Craig.
They showed up on time every day and cleaned up each day. They came in and got to work. I was only called upon if needed.
I loved seeing the transformation every day. The end result was totally awesome! Not only did I have a new bathroom but extra little things like pod lights and a fan timer.
After the work was completed, I have a problem with the shower doors with them moving on their own. Craig sent Warren over right away. Warren made an adjustment with the doors and fixed the problem.
My bathroom looks too good to use now! Everyone loves it and the fantastic job Cross Durham Home did. My only question is why did I wait so long?
I have attached before, reno and finished pictures.
Loving my new bathroom. Especially, the new soaker tub. Nothing beats a hot bubble bath with a good book to relax. Then the bath turns into a shower, did I mention the dual shower head.
I would highly recommend Cross Durham Home.
Thank you Cross Durham for an outstanding job! Well done!
Linda thank you so much for the wonderful review. You were very accommodating and allowed us to take over your main floor to get the job done - which I am sure wasn't easy. I am so glad you are happy with it and are now enjoying every bath with that new deep tub. Thank you again. Give us a call if any issues or if you decide to do more projects - we would love to work with you again!!
Craig and his crew are very professional, reliable, accommodating, and act in the customers best interest.
Thank you so much. Appreciate the positive feedback. Looking forward to working with you again.
The end result was beyond our expectations. Craig and his crew did an amazing job. You could tell they were real professionals and solved every little problem that came up (there were a couple in this older home). They left the work sites immaculate and I really appreciate their attention to small details.
I will definitely have them back for my next project.
Thank you Beverly. Always challenges but certainly glad you are happy with the end results. Everything turned out beautifully.
When I think of Cross Durham Home Upgraders it puts a smile on my face. In one of our first meetings with Craig my wife said “don’t worry I’m not one of those crazy people that keeps changing their mind”, will you can guess what happened. It didn’t phase Craig a bit and he was able to accommodate all the changes that were made. A minor kitchen upgrade turned into a complete renovation along with new flooring and trim of the main floor. We couldn’t be happier with their work. Any issues that we had were addressed immediately. They thoroughly cleaned up at the end of each day. Their cost was reasonable and came in under budget.. I would have no hesitation in recommending them and look forward to using them again in the future.
Thank you so much Dan. It was an ever changing project and the results turned out great. i am truly glad you are happy with everything. You were great clients to deal with and knew what you wanted to achieve in the end. Even with a few hiccups along the way - you were patient and understanding- I appreciate that. Would be more than happy to help out with any future projects.
Craig and his team were amazing! They were extremely professional in both their communication and in their work. They were extremely considerate of our living conditions, ensuring that they cleaned up at the end of each day and making every effort not to be disruptive to our daily routines and environment. The end product was on target with the quote and the finished room reflects excellent workmanship! We would definitely recommend this company and would not hesitate to use them again.
Thanks Denise. You were both great to work with and your design ideas were on point. Thank you. Hoping we work together again.
Craig, Warren and Jimmy were a pleasure to work with and do they great work. They were very accommodating to various requests, the job area was cleaned up each day...more importantly they finished the reno's on time and in budget! I will be calling Craig for our next project.
Thanks So much Dianne. You knew what you wanted and I m glad we able to accommodate - Covid delays and all.
