We hired Duku to complete a main floor renovation for our newly purchased home in Stouffville, and we are extremely happy with the results. Paul and Anne are such a pleasure to deal with and so knowledgeable about their craft. From the beginning we felt they understood our vision for our home and stopped at nothing to make sure we were happy. The quality of their work is amazing and we have received so many compliments from family and friends on our renovation. We plan to use them again for our basement renovation next year, and have recommended them to friends and family. Thanks Duku!
Despite hearing all the horror stories of a renovation project, this reno was amazing. The team of Anne for the designing and Paul for the construction was great. We much appreciated Anne giving us an alternative option to our idea of an open concept. Her idea was much better for sure. Pauls' attention to detail was helpful in solving a sliding glass door installation that was initially less than acceptable. Their suggestion for an IKEA kitchen was perfect. It is gorgeous and functional. The transformation of our house is quite incredible. Anne and Paul were great to work with and we couldn't be more pleased.
Amazing work! This team was professional, diligent, and took extra care to ensure every part of our commercial unit renovation was done to perfection. The project stayed on schedule with no hidden costs. We were impressed with the finished result. Highly recommend.
I first contacted Duku in the Fall after moving into a 32 year old home and wanted to ensure an exterior crack in my foundation wouldn't result in a basement leak with winter coming. Paul came by to inspect it from both the exterior and the basement. Based on his assessment, he recommended I should seal the crack using cement DAP and monitor over the season as a first step rather than take any expensive approach. This advice gave me the confidence that I could trust Paul as he did not try to push services for the sake of profit.
Through the winter, there were a few excessive freeze thaw events; two that resulted in some pooling of water in my unfinished basement. While I naturally assumed it was from the crack we inspected, it was actually the results of a crack in the opposite corner of the house. Paul came by, assessed and recommended an interior corner injection. Once again, his approach was try the most effective economical approach first, rather than spend the big bucks to dig on the exterior. This work was quickly scheduled for a few weeks later and completed within an hour with no mess. For the remaining 1.5 months of winter, there were no more leaks. With each freeze thaw event that occurred, Paul texted me to check if any leaks were observed.
I've had one minor leak near the site of the original exterior crack which I will continue to monitor, but will be sure to contact Paul when I need it fixed.
DuKu was a great team to work with when buying our forever home and executing a major supporting wall removal. We bought this house and had a vision - it was a challenge, we knew that, and DuKu helped us achieve our goal. Paul & team was always prompt, on-time and kept to his word (hard to find these days!) - and just all around good, hardworking people. They were extremely thorough and detailed with ensuring our expectations were met, and the safety of our home, us and their crew were top priority while removing a major load bearing wall, and installing the 20ft steel beam. We would surely recommend the DuKu crew for any renovations and will hopefully use them again in the future! Keep up the great work!
We couldn’t be more pleased with the care and attention Anne, Paul and their colleagues brought to our renovation project. It was a huge undertaking — two walls were taken out in place of studs, new floors installed, we got a whole new kitchen that included appliance installation, countertops, cabinets, backsplash and pot and pendant lighting. Anne, with her background in design and keen eye for detail, talked us through our vision and provided blueprints every step of the way. Paul, with his engineering background and motivated work ethic, helped bring our vision to life by working here every day ready to accomplish large tasks and always with a friendly demeanor. They both have a keen knowledge of different aspects of renovating and made great suggestions of where to find different materials. We worked out a budget and timeframe for our project and they stuck to it. We trusted our friends at Duku completely and we are ecstatic about our new open space kitchen and main floor that we plan on residing in for years to come. Thank you Anne, Paul and the Duku family!

I am very happy with my new kitchen! I really enjoyed having a designer (Anne) to give me advice on my choices . She was super to work with ! Paul, the other half of Duku, was also great. He was personable, cheerful, punctual, knowledgeable, competent and very willing to finish off everything to my satisfaction. It was an absolute pleasure to have them in my home. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone considering a renovation.
Our experience with Duku was positive all around.
They bridged friendliness and professionalism very well which was important seeing as though they were in our lives and house for many months. Estimates and Pricing were always fair and true to their word. Any surprises or problems that arose were dealt with swiftly and properly. Our timeline was extended - mainly due to the nature of our century home's unique and variable conditions but the end result was lovely.
The addition (large family room, entry and double garage) was built and finished beautifully. They saw through our vision and we get numerous comments on how amazing the new space looks.
For the most part - any sub contractors that were used were also timely and professional. Any discrepancies with this were dealt with immediately by the owners.
We will and have recommended Duku to anyone we know seeking new builds and renovations!
It was a pleasure working with Duku. They were reliable and responded quickly to our messages throughout the project. I liked how they were very helpful when we had other concerns around the house pop up, and they took the time to assess and explain each situation to us. I've already recommended Duku to my friends!
Duku recently completed work on our basement renovation. It was our first major renovation with a contractor so we were a bit anxious in regards to budget, design, workmanship, and of course collaborating to get our basement vision. Duku came highly recommended by a neighbour who had just recently had their basement completed. Anne and Paul met with us - their schedules are flexible - to take an initial design consult and take measurements. They came back after a reasonable amount of time with different designs which were easy to understand and incorporated what we saw as being vital to our basement living space. They provided an accurate budget before the project began which was on point throughout the build. Paul oversaw a number of sub-contractors and after every stage of the build we were consulted and given the chance to provide our thoughts on the direction of the renovation. While the physical construction continued, Anne worked continuously with us to find the right look and feel of the materials for the guest bathroom, wet bar, office space, and theatre area designs. By the time we were able to finalize the living space's creature comforts; we had an excellent image in our minds, and on paper, of what we should expect. With any project, time and budget are challenging. In our case, the renovation ran a bit behind schedule, but we found it to be acceptable because of the great workmanship and attention to detail and the fact that we were consulted in every step of the build and given honest and important feedback for our concerns. In the end, we would recommend Duku for your next renovation - big or small - because they are thorough, honest and will provide a great job to meet your budget.
