A much needed change was required in my home. After speaking with several contractors through Trusted Pros, it was quickly clear that Tom, owner of Interior Impressions was the only choice. Toms' references were impeccable and that fact that he is very familiar with my neighbourhood was very reassuring.
However, the more impressive facts were in the quality and commitment Tom exhibited during the renovation in my home. He and his team, removed cupboards off of two walls, neatly and in a very timely fashion. They then cleaned up after themselves and further cut the drain and water inflow pipes, capping them very neatly. The final touch of this room was the plaster repair. Very neat and expertly done.
The biggest job was the removal of 2 more plaster walls and hidden door. Again, very expertly done with minimal damage to ceiling and walls. Tom then completely resealed all areas, you would never know what the state was before, it is like an entirely new house! In the middle of this tear down, it was discovered that there was a heating duct that would be very costly to move to the other side of the house. No problem, again, Tom very neatly created a drywall box column. Visually it is almost invisible and functional in that he affixed outlets and wall switches that were left hanging from the demolition into this box.
Much to my chagrin, the two rooms had completely different stucco. Again, not a problem! Tom stuccoed the entire ceiling to be monochoromatic, changed the ceiling light and Viola! another upgrade for this old home!
The piece de resistance has to be the stair case. The entrance stairs were originally flanked by one of these walls. We discussed all and decided a stairwell is the best option. I found the spindles on Kajii, and just had to purchase the railing and ballast. Tom, very neatly and expertly fitted the spindles, you would think they were an original fixture.
I can't say enough positive things about Tom and his work. Overall he did many many little things because he cares that added value to my home whether it finding economical solutions, recommending other options to enhance and provide value along with his expert craftsmanship and quality of work./
Tom, there will be many other projects to complete on this house throughout the years. I've saved you on speed dial as you are the only contractor I will call.
Many, Many thanks for all your hard work.
