I have been happily using Jeff Geard Carpentry for years as I slowly transformed my house from an abused broken down multiplex back to it's original single family historical dwelling.
Jeff meticulously built my period appropriate front porch and managed to incorporate the strict bylaws required in Guelph for modern porches. I have a skylight in my porch roof that is not visable from the street but allows so much lovely light into my deep, comfy and historically accurate design. Never had a leak and have not had to do any maintenance other than paint - and that was 10 years ago! The porch immediately improved the street value of my home and made a massive difference to its overall appeal.
Next hecompletely renovated my basement from a den of despair to an incredibly well laid out and mutlipurpose space - my kids love the basement now! It's dry, warm, pratical and has so many fun features (my daughter loves to hang out in the lit cubby under the stairs!)
Having a functional basement is great because it gives me a bit more space on the amazingly restored main floor with open concept kitchen. It was quite a feat to work within the confirms of the space, but the result was incredible. All 5 of my family members can be in the kitchen and work together - it's beautifully harmonious and the workmanship was first class.
The second floor was also totally redone by Jeff and his team so that I can now enjoy all the modern amenities of a en-suite bathroom while still holding onto the fundamental historical qualities of my home.
My home was recently featured in Homes Magazine and you can find pictures of it here:
I can't reccomend Jeff Gear highly enough!!
First off I need to say that Jeff and I are friends so you can take this review however you like. I'll try to be as objective as possible.
My wife and I bought a 40 year old bungalow in desperate need of renovations. We had 1 month (June '08) for the renovations to be completed before we moved into the house.
I spoke with Jeff on a regular basis regarding the time line and he was quick to return calls and provide guidance. He gave us some excellent recommendations about the best value and quality products we could get for our home. All the renovations were done on the upper level of our house. Here's a list of the items he completed for us: -replaced all the interior doors (bathroom, bedrooms, stairwell etc) -put down all new baseboard & door trim and some crown moulding -replaced two exterior doors -made a new closet for the master bedroom -completely gutted and renovated the kitchen including installing cabinets, countertops, sink and dishwasher -completely gutted and renovated the bathroom including some plumbing upgrades, new tub, toilet, vanity and sink.
Everything is square except for one countertop that's a little off. We didn't notice it wasn't square until a couple weeks later so it's not very obvious. The house itself has settled a lot over the years so Jeff had a big challenge to try and get things square and looking right when the structure itself isn't square anymore.
I gave Jeff an "Excellent" rating for everything except Budget because there was no budget involved in the work I gave him. I paid him his hourly rate so I can't give an experienced assessment of how he handles a budget. Therefore I just gave him a "Good" rating.
I would highly recommend JCG Carpentry to anyone looking for top quality home renovations. Jeff doesn't come cheap but you get what you pay for. He got the job done on time, he was very conscientious with the little things, and my wife and I are very pleased with the end results. The kitchen and bathroom look amazing and all the trim work is top notch.
