First off I would like to say I hope you don’t get swayed by the one negative review on this site. Mike has been working on our home off and on (because I wanted to find my own deals on things) for a month now and I have gotten to know him well. He is very down to earth and even though I have little knowledge of home improvements I feel fine to ask him any “dumb” questions because he never makes me feel like an idiot. Plus, my husband and I feel that his prices are very reasonable. All that being said, his work is great and I will never go anywhere else for future home improvements. I already have a list. :)
It is very overwhelming when you find your plumbing broke in main floor and did extensive damage to the finished basement. I contacted my Insurance company and they sent K.E.R. Resoration over. Within 2 hours, they had started to remove the damaged flooring, drywall etc. Large fans were brought in and the area was checked on frequently. The restoration was completed in a timely fashion and on budget.
This was over a year ago. Every part of the reno has held up excellent. Flooring, baseboard, wainscotting, and the best drywall repair and paint ever.
I recommend them to all my friends and if needed, I would use their services again.

I contacted K.E.R. Restoration to have a wall fixed. It was done in a timely manner and a fair price.
At the time we discussed basement renovations. Now, my basement was in terrible shape. Unfinished and dark. Now thanks to Mike and his team it`s light and I am no longer embarrassed to lead someone down the stairs. They framed the basement into usable spaces by constructing and concealed the area in a manner that is both efficient and modern.
All electric issues (sorry, not an electrician, so I do not know the jargon, but I do know that what I had was outdated and somewhat unsafe) and now everything is updated, labelled and restored.
The drywall work in my basement went beyond my expectations. The walls and ceilings were done. Meticulous detail was taken into incorporating and concealing switches, knobs, pipes and the electric box.
The time taken to complete this project and price felt very fair.
Mike was understanding and listened to every concern I had and provided a solutions that work. For example, I had a leak underneath my kitchen sink that was apparent after framing the basement was done. And he was able to fix both the leak in the kitchen and repair what needed to be done in the basement (without it looking like it had been repaired).
None the less, I am more than pleased with his workmanship, those he chooses to work with and his level of professionalism and talent. Will definitely hire again in the future.
Botched tile flooring install. Came back and left huge glob of grout behond my door. Bathroom door couldn't even close. Mike Ryckman is very unprofessional and called me several names. Very abusive. Should not be in business!

I began my work experience working in the insurance industry. I had an opportunity to complete the WRT (water restoration training coarse). My job consisted of doing tear outs and prep work for re-builds. I also did the re-build work and putting new to old, attention to detail was a must. Besides drywall work, tape and mud, we also did tiling and carpentry work, such as cabinet replacement and trims.
I later began to work at HOUSE TO HOMES, with this company we also worked with insurance companies as well as flipping houses, which enabled me to expand my skills with framing basements and completing board work but also bathrooms, tile work, trims and specialty detail work such as installing niches, crown molding and custominzing details to suit client needs.
I have a great understanding of renovation from tear out to completion, meeting code within time and buget is a must for KER Restoration.
