My wife and I bought a two bedroom condo in need of a major renovation. After meeting with three contractors we decided to go with Sal. We were impressed with his knowledge and honesty about the scope of the job.
Throughout the renovation process Sal was always available to discuss the progress of the work and to answer our questions. We were always kept abreast of any changes or additional work required that we had not anticipated.
The project started with the removal of the popcorn ceilings and then the layers of old wallpaper throughout the unit. Then the wall to wall carpeting and parquet floors were removed and replaced with new hardwood. Some electrical was updated and new light fixtures were installed along with new interior doors. They also installed two new bathrooms including toilets, shower enclosure, a bathtub-shower combination, tiling and vanities. The kitchen reno included new quartz countertops, marble backsplash and refurbished kitchen cupboards. The entire unit was repainted and new baseboards were installed.
Sal and his team were friendly and respectful of our home and the condo regulations.
The cost of the work was reasonable considering the scope and the challenges faced with a condo renovation.
We would not hesitate to recommend Ghannawi General Contractors Ltd.
Although we ran into a couple of hiccups (to be expected in any reno) the work was done immaculately and ahead of schedule. Sal and his crew were accommodating and easy to work with. I would readily recommend their services.
Thank you Stephen and Aggie for making the job easier for us by having selected all the finishes ahead of time. It was a pleasure doing work for you guys.
I hired Sal Ghannawi and his his team because out of all the contractors I interviewed for the job, he was the only one who listened to my needs, tried to understand what I was trying to accomplish, and provide some reasonable feedback. While Sal did not provide the cheapest quote, it seemed to be the most realistic, detail oriented, and professional. Some contractors will provide a low quote just to get your business, but then the expenses pile up later on. I estimated another 10-15% on top of the quote and we kept overall expenses in check by the end of the project.
Also consider the relationship you'll establish with your contractor. There'll be times when you're frustrated, hit a roadblock or setbacks etc, so having a contractor that listens to your needs is beneficial. Sal and his team fit this description and I recommend you at least interview him when considering a contractor for your next job.
Thank you Vernon. We are pleased that your happy with the work.
I’ve been on the hunt for a good contractor for the past few years and I finally found one who is reliable. Sal of Ghannawi General Contractors Ltd came recommended and I received glowing references from previous customers.
Sal is patient and took the time to answer my endless questions. I wanted a curb-less shower stall and other contractors told me that my space was not large enough to have a curb-less shower but Sal was creative and gave me exactly what I had in mind.
Both Sal and his electrician Mo guided me through the process and made recommendations that were better than what I had in mind.
Sal and his team were committed to our project and worked diligently to complete our renovations on a timely basis. And I was really impressed with the clean-up after the renovations were completed.
My recommendation is to have a vision of what you want and clearly communicate what you want especially details that are important to you (remember he is patient) and you will not be disappointed. And if an upgrade will improve the end result and you can afford it then go for it. Keep in mind that you never regret what you do but you regret what you don’t do.
We originally contracted Sal to renovate our bathroom and we were so happy with his work that we contracted him to do additional renovations throughout our house. Our kitchen is next!!!!
