We decided to undertake a lot of the demolition and management ourselves by hiring individual contractors. This is where we ran into issues finding reliable trades to commit or come to site for our condo renovation. We reached out to Vlad (OTB) on the recommendation of a colleague and he provided the most competitive, clear and detailed pricing for our renovation work. Vlad delivered quality work and in a timely manner and ultimately made our lives so much easier for the renovation. He completed the tile install for our bathroom flooring, tub surround, and fireplace mantel. He additionally built a custom fireplace mantel for us. Vlad completed all the carpentry work, drywalling and prep work we needed to complete the cabinet install and painting. We are happy we met Vlad and would highly recommend him and use him again. One last note, due to our miscalculations in measurement we realized after the tile was done that our stove longer fit, Vlad generously came back to site to trim the wall tile to help solve our issue.
I am so glad I found Vlad. He is a skilled craftsman who was able to expertly deal with some challenges in the way my kitchen cabinets had been installed. He has an eye for detail and kept me up-to-date each step of the way. I am thrilled with my new backsplash!
Vlad did a full reno of our house in Jan-March 2021 -- top to bottom reno of a 3bd/3ba 1980s built house. It was great working with Vladimir and we are happy with the finished product.
Communication was excellent, Vlad was always available to discuss any concerns or questions about the project. Any time unforseen challenges came up, he informed us right away and worked with us to find the best solution.
We liked that Vlad was flexible and open to our specific designs and fixtures and finishes that we wanted to use.
Doing the work during the covid pandmic and 2021 meant there were delays out of Vlad's control for some things like kitchen cabinets, but he always kept us informed and as soon as the items arrived he arranged a time to finish the install with no disruption to us.
We are very happy with the work that Vlad and his crew did and would use him again in the future.
Vlad was terrific to deal with and easy to talk to. He met his commitments in that he did what he said he would do exactly when he said he would. He was on time, on budget and left things tidy at the end of each day.
He was timely and responsive with communications and asked questions to make sure we got exactly what we wanted.
We are very pleased with our new bathroom and would not only recommend his services but will most definitely use them again.
We were very happy about Vladimir's services. From start to finish, the project was smooth thanks to Vladimir's excellent communication skills and professionalism. Vladimir listened to my needs and gave excellent advice. The end result is even better than what I had envisioned. I will definitely use this company again in the future.
Vlad and his team were extremely professional and provided great value. They were on time, on budget, and extremely clean.
They completed the project in one week when most contractors estimated 2 weeks for the same job.
I would use Vlad and Outside the Box for work in the future and highly recommend their services.
We had a kitchen renovation done by Outside The Box in July of 2019. The schedule was very tight due to our son's upcoming wedding in August when guests from overseas would be staying in our home. The whole crew and especially the owner Vladimir put in extra effort and managed to pull of the complete renovation a few days less then a month while remaining very nice and polite all the time. Since the sink had to be relocated to a different wall, this included a fair amount of plumbing and electrical work, including replacing the house electrical breaker panel with a new, larger one. There was tile work, of course, that was done really nicely. Also, new drywall on the ceiling, quartz countertop installed by their contractor including a sink. When there was debris it was cleaned and hauled away the same day. Let's not forget cabinet assembly and installation that turned out great. All of this was done nicely and efficiently and we got a beautiful kitchen on schedule and on budget.
I would eagerly recommend Outside The Box to anyone who needs renovation work.
Vladimir completed the job on budget and on time. He and his crew did a very good job with both the interior painting of most of my condo, as well as the install of new laminate flooring. All the finished work looks just like we wanted it to.
After six months of renovation nightmare with our previous contractor, we were extremely fortunate to find Vladimir and his company, Outside The Box. Vladimir and his crew completely renovated our two 40-year-old bathrooms, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome and the overall experience.
The quality of the job was outstanding. All the sub-contractors (the tiler, the plumber, the painter, the electrician, the ceiling and shower door guys) were super professional, hard-working and friendly. Their work was meticulous, and they all went above and beyond to make sure we'll get what we expected. And the result exceeded our expectations by far! The basement bathroom was a very tricky project, given its age, size, layout, and the terrible piping job done by the previous owner. I just hoped to turn it into something looking relatively decent on a low budget. The result was a fantastic upscale modern-looking bathroom, which we absolutely love.
Vladimir himself is a real pleasure to work with. He is one of the most honest, reliable, trustworthy, positive and helpful contractors I've ever met. He was very patient with all my questions and concerns, and did his best to accommodate all my requests. Any unexpected issues arising in the course of the project were immediately taken care of, so I didn't need to worry about anything. Vladimir's coordination of the sub-contractors was very efficient, so the project was completed in a relatively short amount of time. When needed, Vladimir was always ready to step in and do some work himself.
The quote provided by Vladimir was very reasonable, detailed and transparent, with generous allowances for all materials and fixtures. Besides, he has a very flexible approach to "who supplies what" -- we were able to decide what we'd like to buy ourselves, what we'd select and leave for Vladimir to order, and what we'd prefer Vladimir to provide himself. That worked extremely well in both lowering our expenses and getting the exact items that we wanted. And there were no surprises in the final invoice.
Overall, from the initial quote to completion, this renovation was a very positive and stress-free experience. We would absolutely hire Outside The Box again and highly recommend this company to anyone who wants top-notch quality delivered at a reasonable cost.
Thank you Tatiana for your comments. I am happy that we were able to make it happen for you. Good luck and all the best.
Vladimir renovated the bathroom of my rental house in April 2020. From the very beginning, he was responsive, professional and straightforward. So many contractors come across as salespeople, but Vladimir isn't like that: he listened to my needs, created a good plan, and executed exactly as I hoped. He was prompt with communication, flexible with my tenants' schedules, sensitive to the COVID situation, and even fixed a few other things in the house while he was there. What I most appreciated was the way Vladimir understood what I wanted (a durable, easy to maintain bathroom in a rental: nice but not luxurious) and worked within that; he didn't try to inflate the project cost. And the finished bathroom looks fantastic! I will definitely call Vladimir for my future needs, and would recommend him without hesitation.
