German is reliable, efficient and does excellent work.
Our bathroom renovation with tiled floor and shower stall looks beautiful and it all was done in less than a week.
German arrived promptly when contacted, assessed our situation gave us a fair and signed quotation (with no surprises) - removed the shoddy work of a previous contractor - straightened the incorrect angles and even with the extra work required - still finished everything on time. We were very impressed.
I highly recommend German Aravena for his workmanship and professionalism and attention to detail. His suggestions helped our project turn out the way we wanted. We now have a gorgeous renovated and up to date bathroom. The bathroom we've always wanted.
I wish we had found German first, it would have saved us frustration, stress and extended delays. The first contractor (not German!) delayed and delayed and then did a terrible prepping job. So do yourself a favour and don't make our mistake, pick German first.
German and his team were awesome! Showed up on time, did great tile work and cleaned up after themselves. My husband and I thought we could DIY a complicated marble tile backsplash in my in-law suite, we were in way over our heads. Very happy with the service provided. I would recommend German and his team to anyone.
Thank you to Jose as well! :)
German provided high quality workmanship in tiling 2 fireplace surrounds. One tile was a herringbone mosaic which requires fine detail. German was also reliable and fast in delivering our project. I would highly recommend him for your renovation project.
German and his crew member did a fantastic job on our bathroom renovation! He quoted us fairly and gave us lots of advice when making design choices that we wouldn’t have thought of. He is professional, timely and a pleasure to work with!
German did a fantastic job on our bathroom, the work was completed on time with no issues. German gave excellent advice on how to approach the project and was excellent at communicating during the process. I would definitely hire German again.
I choose German because after looking at his phots of his past work, I had a sense that he loves and takes pride in what he does. That reflected in the work he did with my renovation. His communication was excellent and any suggestions he had, I went with. Trust is important when you have someone coming into your home while you're not there and I never worried.
Renovations are messy and it would have been better if I covered as much as possible. With German using the balcony to mix grout and cement, I didn't cover the living room like I did the bedroom so clean up was almost a daily event for me.
Overall, I would highly recommend German. I found him sincere, knowledgable and very patient. (I did change a couple things from the original quote) He was accommodating and came back even to put up the new mirror and towel bar.
The tenants of the previous owner had a dog which spread urine over the bedroom carpets making it a bio-hazard. German accepted to help me with a laminate install and fit me in even though it was a small job and time sensitive. I had only 240 sq ft, which is passable by many contractors for which he did complete quickly within a day. For my install, I was comfortable with selecting the laminate on my own to keep costs low; even though his work didn't start yet, he was steadily in touch to offer advice leading to the install. German also outlined specific actions I could do to limit budget while also being on time.
German understood my needs and was great to converse as well as do business with.
Relieved I found German as I have a few projects ahead and knowing a good general contractor takes the stress away. German was responsive, timely, tidy, fairly priced and as another reviewer commented, went over and above what I had asked. I highly recommend German!
I hired Pronto Services to repair a tiled shower, where some of the wall tiles were loose suggesting water damage behind the wall. I found German to be knowledgeable about how to fix the problem and thought his quote and estimated repair time was very competitive. The repair, which involved taking down all existing tile + drywall, checking for leaks (there were none) and putting up new waterproofed backing wall and tile, was completed in 3 days as estimated. German answered my many questions before and during the job. The quality of the work was pretty good (I’m picky). And the site was quite tidy during and afterward. In short, the work was solid, and was done on time and on budget.
Choosing a contractor is fraught with many concerns, a degree of confidence and trust is uppermost when making a selection. From the initial contact to completion German was a pleasure to work with. He was timely, made helpful suggestions, fairly priced and went over and above to ensure I was happy with the finished project.
