Craig was friendly at first and the quality of his work seemed good. As he progressed into the project his work became sloppy and he was rude with my other contractors. Craig didn’t do good job with my Renovations and kept demanding money even though he didn’t complete what was in the contract and I wasn’t happy with the work. He hasn’t honoured his warranties and refuses to answer my calls. I would never recommend him, huge disappointment with my kitchen and I spent a lot of money on his project.
I cant say that I'm surprised at this review as Linda came into this business relationship almost 2 yrs. ago with a very dishonest intent. She asked me for an all inclusive price and then decided to use some of her own hand picked contractors. When it came time to produce invoices so I could make the appropriate deductions, she purposely attempted to hide returns of items I had purchased and withheld other invoices for long periods of time. The job turned out wonderful. She was also running a dayhome during the project. I kept my moral concerns to myself, although it weighed heavy on me at times, I finished the project in a timely manner, charging nothing for extra work and delays caused by other contractor tartyness. I'm not concerned at all about this review as future clients can draw their own conclusions about who was the problem in this transaction based on my review history.
Craig is great.
Services included for the basement remodel include relocating bathroom, rebuilding walls for a bedroom, bathroom, family room with subfloor, insulation etc. Also, installing bathroom fixtures, fireplace, mantel, upgrading plumbing and hot water tank (through a subcontractor) and finishing (sanding, priming and painting).
On top of all of that - he was extremely helpful in the planning process, giving knowledgeable advice on decisions that came up throughout, including anything from plumbing fixtures, finishing materials, paint, floor, colours and others.
Craig showed up everyday during the project as needed until it was complete. Although started a bit behind schedule (due to complications on a previous job), this was forgiven due to the benefits of having great work done.
Other than a great contractor - Craig is personable with family and pets. He took his time explaining and conversing with my father in law, which is worth mentioning.
I have an early 1970s bi-level with 1 1/2 bathrooms. The downstairs sink and toilet was cornered in a small area without much wiggle room. Also there was terrible rot under the floor. With a surprisingly modest quote Craig was able to borrow room from an adjacent bedroom to install a beautiful shower stall. I now have 2 bathrooms and I am very happy.
Carpentry, electrical and plumbing was all handled without subcontracting.
Craig was great! Always friendly, on time and professional. The work was completed for what was quoted and he made the whole process as easy on us as possible. Would definitely use Lighthouse again for any home project.
