For 100K contract value you can't afford to go wrong with your general contractor. It all started in Oct 2015 when we've opened the bid process. Out of about 6 valid offers, we've streamlined it to two of them in the final and Tony got it (or Kingsway Home Improvements). We have to say that at that time we were hoping to have taken the wisest decisions but no matter how good you are in selecting, there is a lottery that only the time can confirm that is was or not the best avenue. Even after checking the references.
Then April 2016 came and the garbage bin was dropped in the driveway (I had to shovel the snow that morning)!
Contract was clear, starting date, duration (approx 4 months) and scope too.
I will start with keeping the word in commitments. We all know that this business is full of delays, etc, especially these days making us (customer) feeling vulnerable. Well, no surprise there with Tony, actually he was earlier in few deliverables. The subcontractors were strongly managed (I assume he made his life easier on that due to durable relationships established with them over the years).
Then unforeseeable problems came with the house when you tear apart the walls. I will mention here only the water infiltration discovered after we've removed the sofa that was sitting against that wall for 10 years. No issue there too, we were treated fair and problem was solved.
We lived in the house during the whole renovation. Imagine being in a moving train and asked to move from one wagon to the other because there is work to do. It was fun and is worth it to say that we were helped be these guys. Clean, tight, organised just to name a few. Tony was there every day checking for that.
There were debates while on the go i.e. we would like to do it this way, Tony believed differently. In all cases we came up with a common denominator and reasonable deviations scope/price. His ethics are great.
We can add more but we believe is enough for whomever reads to conclude that Kingwsay Home Improvements deserves best marks for all of the criteria below. Thank you!

Prior to hiring Tony to convert this one family dwelling into 3 two bedroom units, including separate hydro meters, AC, and ensuite laundry, I intended to hire a friend I had known for over 15 years from church. While doing my research, I came to the conclusion that my friend would struggle with the job. I immediately, invited some 5 contractors to submit quotes and estimates. Tony's quote was in the middle, and I decided to go with him. That was the best decision I made. Though I don't have many experiences dealing with contractors, I've heard and witnessed many renovations horrors. Tony has good work ethics. One can rest assured that once hired; Tony will be at your jobsite everyday until the job is completed. Further, you can expect him to provide excellent customer service should any problem arise after his task is done. A strong communicator and straight shooter, expect Tony to call you to present options in view of resolving problems and issues, and to get your approval to move forward. The project was completed slightly over budget and approximately 2 weeks beyond estimated timeframe. Renovating is always stressful, especially when money is scarce. However, a lot of that stress can be alleviated if you hire the right people to do the job. Having dealt with Tony on a daily basis, I can say with confidence, that Tony was the ideal contractor for my job.
Having used Kingsway Home Improvements Inc. for several earlier projects, there was no doubt that we would be calling on Tony and his crew when we wanted some major renovations done to our home. As usual, Tony did not disappoint. He completely remodelled 3 bathrooms for us, finished a laundry room, and constructed a storage area in our basement. Each facet of the renovation was done in a professional, efficient manner, always taking into account our personal needs and preferences. Tony offered suggestions and advice on products and materials, and did his best to ensure that our wishes and needs were being met to the fullest. The bathrooms are not only beautifully finished, they are modern and equipped with many safety features that make our lives easier. Tony is a hands-on contractor who is involved with all aspects of a job. His employees follow the same work ethic, and do their jobs with the least amount of disruption to your daily routine. They leave the area neat and clean at the end of each day, and arrive on time to start the new day. In conclusion, we find Tony to be an honest, hard-working contractor, dedicated to ensuring you get the best job for the money you spend. We will definitely use Kingsway Home Improvements Inc. for any future renovation needs.
My wife and I decided to do a full renovation of our only full bathroom. While dirt and dust are unavoidable, Tony and his crew attenpted to minimize the effect of the construction on the rest of our home and were very respectful towards us and our house. The project was finished on time and on budget. We encountered a couple of small issues and Tony brought these to our attention right away and suggested creative solutions for our consideration. Even though he may have disagreed with our final decision a couple of times, he acknowledged that it was our decision and made it happen. We also had a couple of warranty issues and Tony was there within days to remedy these at no cost.
I would definitely recommend Tony for a home renovation and will use him again if the opportunity arises.
