I found Grindstone Renovations using Google search for a condominium renovation and it was the best find ever!! I made an appointment with Matt for an estimate and instantly found him to be professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. They began the project right away and assisted us in choosing materials that would best match our budget and style. Matt was always available for questions that I had and frequently provided us with progress reports. The end result was beyond my expectations. The condo looked so modern and clean. The crew left everything spotless! I will definitely use Grindstone Renovations again and will spread the word on how pleased we were with the amazing job they did.
I was referred to Grindstone Renovations by friends that were very pleased with their professional and timely services.Since then I have had 3 projects completed in the past 1.5 years. They are very prompt in responding to calls and each written estimate was provided in under 3 days. They are easy to talk to, listened to and followed up on my questions. The owners of this firm work on the projects,have good working relationships with their trades. I had painters, plumbers and electricians and all provided the services they promised in a timely manner. If timelines need to change[ which was seldom] I was contacted promptly. They never left me waiting. They respected my property, always cleaning up and protecting floors and walls from any damage. I will certainly hire this firm again and would be happy to give references.
I have worked with the Grindstone guys on 2 projects now and they are great. The 1st project was a major renovation of our 1600 sq. foot basement. The basement was essentially gutted in its entirety right down to the concrete floors and walls. This was a massive undertaking and the Grindstone guys were up for the challenge. The guys were hired to rebuild the basement which included a large family room with a bar, large closet, 2piece bathroom, home gym, furnace room and utility room. There were a lot of unique materials used in this project and they worked with everything I threw at them! The end results were amazing. Anytime I wanted to make changes or additions, I could text them and they would get back to me right away. I got some of my own sub-trades, but they suggested an electrician who I used and was great. They also used a man to tape the walls and a carpet installer. They did all of the painting back then but now use a painting company who are also very good (they provide some consultation on the 1st project and did the painting on my 2nd project). I really liked working with all the guys, they were respectful and worked long days and weeks on the project. In the end it was a 6 month project, and I enjoyed working with them for the entire time. I always left them detailed notes on things I wanted completed and if things weren't done, I would make note of them. They would always complete tasks on my checklists. The also picked up the majority of my products for me, which was great and a time saver for me. They charged me for their time, but it was much easier for me rather than having to hire a transport company. Their payment schedule was reasonable and fair. When we got to another big part of the job, we would arrange to meet in person to discuss the next stage. They were always accommodating and worked within my schedule. The end result exceeded my expectations and everyone who sees our basement are wowed by the workmanship.
After a year, I texted them again to see if they were interested in doing another project for us. We arranged to meet and came by our house within a few days. This project was not as big as the 1st project, but still it was a rebuilt of our entranceway. Again the results were just as spectacular. The only difference this time is they sub-contracted the painting to the company I mentioned earlier. They did a great job. I also used the same electrician as before. They provided the name of a stucco company who we used and they worked out really well. The room is only 12 x 7 feet, but there were some major things going on in the room and they worked well with the window/door company who gutted the front of our house to install a new entrance and a very large picture window.
On both projects we hired our own demolition crew, but Gridstone took care of the rebuild. They are on my speed dial and would not hesitate working again with them again! I highly recommend Grindstone.
We really appreciated the level of communication and timliness of Grindstone. They gave us some great ideas on design and functionality of our renovation before it began. They understood our vision and what we were trying to accomplish and were very honest and upfront. They were easy to communicate with through out the renovation and were always updating us with the progress. They had quality work and if we weren't quite satisfied with any aspect of the project they listened to us and corrected it immediately. They were able to stay on budget and on time. I have recommended Grindstone to a number of people I know and will use Grindstone on our next renovation project.
