We are a competitive contracting company based out of Ottawa. Our team has expertise in every field of home renovations and has a mission to deliver the highest quality of work and service to each and every one of our customers. Go Contracting hires the most experienced, dedicated and professional contractors in the industry.
The original contract was to re-shingle the roofs. As work got underway it became apparent that the original underlying strapping (meant for a cedar shake style roofing) was unsatisfactory for supporting asphalt shingles so there was a need to completely re-sheet the roofs. Also in removing the existing shingles it was discovered that there was considerable rot around a skylight. This meant there was a requirement to eliminate the skylight opening; reframing the opening, insulating the space created and covering it with drywall and painting to match an entire room.
The work took longer than expected because of all the surprises. The cost also increased as one would expect because of the unexpected discoveries. The workmanship was excellent and the care and cleanliness deliberately good. We are pleased.
I would like to send out a big thank you to Dawn for her help with the entire design process. It was greatly appreciated and needed. The guys that came in to do the work - were great - allowing me to ask questions along the way. The office staff was fantastic for sending out emails and keeping in touch with me along the way. There were a few delays but that is to be expected.
Would never recommend this contractor under any circumstances!

Requested additional payment, which we wish we had never given prior to the job completion.
We had so many different ‘workers’ in our home that we couldn’t keep track and most of them were sent to correct someone else’s mistakes, including the re-gutting of the bathroom and starting over.
Permits were not obtained resulting in closure of the renovation pending inspection and release by the Electrical Authority.
A promise was made by you to discuss rectifying the issues. We have never been contacted again about redoing the work that was done so badly. It has been over 8 months since we have heard from Go Home Contracting. List of deficiencies (which is quite long) was never addressed by you.
Worst customer service experiance ever. Do not use this company. The price they initially gave us ended up far from the total budget. They asked for payments ahead of time. They started work on my project and never followed up with me. I was always the one chasing them. Are not certified member of the better business bureau. Their employees do not have WSIB. They work without permits, cut corners any place possible and give unreasonable turnaround times for any good construction company. In the end I had to cancel my project and have heard nothing back for my refund and money owed to me. Be ware, could end up costing you even more money before your original project then before it started.
Thank you for your review on Trusted Pros.
Go Home Contracting does have WSIB and are in good standing with them. We ensure that we have all permits required to start a project to enforce that the job is completed to code and on time. Prices may vary to original contract price if the owner decides to add upgrades or change the scale of the project once started. Go Home Contracting stands behind our work and skill set. As discussed, we asked for the original building plans due to the City of Ottawa's high standard and complexity of your building. Once explained with the extra work needed to be done and the extra cost involved, you decided to end the project. As some of the work has been completed, we are going over the invoice and bill and will be in touch with you shortly.
