We had hired an individual to originally do the job. Let’s just say he was not a good fit. Just before completing the removal phase of the project, he mistakenly told us he couldn’t proceed because he saw asbestos under a tile. My wife and I were despondent and decided we should move on. I reached out to John Gardner from Gardco. He came over the same day examined the area in question and correctly diagnosed it was not asbestos ( I had a sample tested to confirm). We got a quote same day with a cost we were very pleased with. John sent one of his tiling specialists who came with a helper. Their work was fantastic. They were always punctual, very clean, took care of our property, and the porcelain tiles were installed perfectly. The team also installed new marble tiles on 2 walls of the bathroom. John’s team helped my wife and I to start seeing our renovation moving forward and truly lifted our spirits. We would highly recommend Gardco.
We hired Gardco to gut our kitchen, remove the wall, and replace all of our flooring and baseboard.
It was a big job, and we were worried going in to this about costs, timelines (we lived in the home through the construction), and not falling prey to the shady contractors you read about.
After getting recommendations from friends, neighbours, and contacts, we met with several contractors, and decided after much thought to put our trust in Gardco. We are very glad we did.
Gardco is run by John, and our job was managed by Stephan. As a team they were professional, attentive, responsive, and cared about our home as if it were their own. They were also very transparent about costs helping us to keep a realistic budget in mind.
Also important, they were on time, and on, or ahead of schedule throughout the process. They gave us a 6-8 week window for completion, and we’re done in 7 weeks. This was particularly impressive to us because we added to the scope of work a few times, so we thought a delay would be unavoidable…and they still finished on schedule!
The tradespeople they used were all top notch as well. A special thanks go out to Collette, Lucas, Pete, Evan for treating our home with such care.
The kitchen was designed, made and installed by Mario of Martini Custom Homes and Kitchens in Mississauga. Mario works with Gardco and we could not be happier with his work. His attention to detail and caring set him apart. Mario is a true craftsman and will leave you with the kitchen of your dreams.
Did everything go perfectly? No of course not; but when we had concerns about how work was completed, Stephan was quick to respond and ensure the job was done right. We couldn’t ask for more than that,
We would highly recommend Gardco for your renovation needs! We could not be happier with our new space and this entire experience. Thanks again Stephan and the entire Gardco team!

It was a great decision that I went with Gardco to renovate my bathroom and making my floor in my extension sound and safe. I recently purchased this century old house and getting it fixed on a budget is important for me however I just don't want it to be fixed but I want to make sure it will make the foundation strong. What I liked about getting Gardco service is how fast they responded to my request and Stephan immediately came to my house to inspect and see the work to be done unlike some who will just randomly give you a quote without seeing the property. Also, I feel confident giving them my budget restrictions and so when they demolished the bathroom and saw how bad the floor was, they consider getting the best and cheaper way to fix it. I was already anxious budget wise that the additional cost will bring out of my budget but surprisingly Stephan regularly updates me of the added cost and them finding ways to fix it with lower cost. Our schedule needs to be adjusted twice but it was understandble given the extra work they have to do to fix the bathroom floor. Now I have a beautiful bathroom and my kitchen floor and base is sturdy.
I want to thank John and Stephen for providing me excellent professional service in building a additional loft style floor space in my house.
They provided accurate estimates and started work on time and finished it on time as well.
Throughout the work Stephen was constantly in touch and made sure things are going as per plan.
I would highly recommend both John and Stephen for any house construction project due to their professionalism.
Thanks once again.
We recently had our old tile floor replaced with vinyl click laid on top. What a difference! We then got the renovation bug and requested that our walls and dining room be repainted. Stephan and his team didn’t hesitate and did everything in a few weeks!
They also began the project earlier than expected.
Highly recommend Gardco to anyone in the future.
We decided to make our empty, unfinished basement into a living space for our home. We knew it would be a big job and we had 6 different companies come to scope out the space and give us a quote. We instantly felt a connection with Stephan, who was friendly and knowledgeable. Gardco sent us a quote a few days later, and it was in the same ballpark as a few of the other companies we spoke with. We decided to hire them, and we are so happy we did.
This was right before the Christmas holidays, but we lucked out that they were able to begin immediately following New Year's. They took our wide open space and transformed it into a spare room, a separate laundry room, a 3 piece bath, 3 large closets, and one large entertaining area with a built in wet bar. They installed insulation, drywall, flooring, all the plumbing, and built the bar. They also put in a beautiful vinyl floor, encased our bearing posts, and painted the entire basement. We had a barn door built for the spare room, and Guardco innovatively imitated the barn door design for our under-the-stairs cubby door and the cover for our circuit box.
We were given free reign to choose our colours, flooring, tiles, and fixtures. Gardco was willing to listen to all of our ideas, no matter how outside the box, and helped us brainstorm ways to make it a reality. We ended up with a beautiful space we can relax in with our family and friends. It is exactly what we hoped for when this space was an empty, insultation-exposed, cement-floored cellar. It is now a place we are excited to spend time in.
Despite Covid causing some delays, and many, many snow days, Gardco remained professional and courteous, always keeping us informed of the progress. Everyone - the drywall hangers, the mudders, the plumbers, and the painters - were polite and friendly and professional. We can't say enough about John, Stephan, and the rest of the company.
We will definitely contact them when we are ready for our next project.
We are so happy with the results of our outside basement stairwell. A very collaborative and reliable team who were there to ensure they met our expectations. Thank you to John and his crew for a quality product. We were very satisfied with the results and would recommend Gardco to anyone.
We hired GARDCO to make our dream basement renovation and they did just that. Not only were they fast and time efficient, but they were also very respectful and always kept us up to date communication wise. They transformed our basement into everything we wanted and the workers were professional and did everything in their power to fulfill our wishes. We would definitely recommend GARDCO to anyone looking to renovate.
We hired Gardco to waterproof our basement and I am so glad that we did. All involved were extremely courteous; the workmanship and materials used were top notch; the job site was impeccably maintained; the work was completed ahead of schedule; and the figure on the invoice ended being exactly the same as the original quote. John is an excellent communicator and the entire process exceed our expectations. I fully intend on using Gardco Reno and Design to complete additional work on our house next year.
