We hired Essette to renovate our ensuite. The quality of work for my renovation was excellent. Essette was dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of workmanship. They kept the work area as clean and contained as possible and cleaned up at the end of every day to make as much of the house usable as possible. They made sure we were satisfied at each step of the process, that the our needs were being met, and were able to quickly adjust to any changes that we requested to ensure that we were totally satisfied with the final outcome of the job.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with the work that Essette have done in my home. I would highly recommend them to others and would definitely use them in the future for any future projects.
We hired Essette to do a 400 sq-ft single storey addition. We needed the extra space for our new kitchen.
Essette was very helpful with the planning and layout and offered a ton of ideas. They sent us their architect to draw up the plans and also dealt with getting the permits from the city.
We are extremely pleased with the final result and would not hesitate to recommend Essette to our friends and family.
We hired Essette to do an addition and kitchen renovation on our family home. They were referred to us through a neighbour who hired Essette to renovate their kitchen and were very pleased with the work they did. Their bid was similar to others we had received so we decided to award them the project. We were looking for someone that could handle the job from beginning to end as my wife and I work long hours and donâ€™t have a lot of time to deal with applying for permits, finding an architect, etc. They said that it was very common practise for them to handle a project in this manner.
They delivered beyond our expectations! We are extremely pleased with the work they did which took just over 5 months to complete. They took care of the permits, the drawings and everything from a-z. We would not hesitate to recommend Essette and will most definitely be calling them for any future projects.
Just stay away! You will meet Shawn, and he will come off as very courteous and you could be fooled into thinking that you are dealing with a professional who will respect you as a customer. You'd be wrong!! The main issue with Shawn, is his lack of communication. He will go days, sometimes weeks ignoring your email, calls or texts and then have some ridiculous excuse. My favorite was when he was supposed to put our flooring down and then we just didn't hear from him for 2 weeks. I was pregnant and couldn't live in the condo because of the lack of flooring and dust and actually had to stay with a neighbor. It was very stressful and my husband and I were emailing, phoning and texting practically begging him to come and finish the flooring he promised. Two weeks later I got a text saying "sorry. Had the flu." This is just one of countless examples of Shawn's promise to come and finish something, and then just not showing up. He installed an island and the countertop warped. Shawn says this is is due to the humidity in our apartment or some such thing. We weren't even annoyed that this happened we just wanted it replaced. He said he'd change it, and so the emails, calls and texts began.....finally he answered saying he'd be in....and didn't show. So we have continued to try and reach him, and he isn't responding. We are fed up. We should have complained ages ago, but chose not to. But enough is a enough. Looks like you have yet another unhappy customer. I'm curious to see if you'll actually respond to this (unless of course you have the flu...)
We are not difficult clients at all, in fact we've been too nice throughout this unpleasant process. I could say more about the qualify of the work, but I'll leave it at this for now and urge you to stay away from essette.
