Immediate response, understood what we needed. Excellent results and was able to fit us on same day!! Reasonable pricing, extremely knowledgeable, especially on the local bylaws and Ontario Building Code requirements. Highly professional. We were blown away.
Paul and his team did a great job with our bathroom renovation, turning a small space into one that feels much more open with a beautiful walk in shower. The team was knowledgeable, polite and finished the job in a timely manner. Would highly recommend Paul’s Contracting for your renovation needs!
Hiring a contractor had always been stressful prior to dealing with Paul. (I've been burned many times before). Here are the key points from my great experience with Paul's Contracting:
- Highly recognized for excellence in the Barrie community and area
- Met with Paul personally, who addressed all my concerns about previous contractors
- Willingness to listen & build Trust
- Commitment to quality and customer service !
- Commitment to training his crews and having trusted supervisors & not any hired subcontractor crews ! (most important)
- His personal quality control checks on job sites
- His admin/marketing support staff that frees up his time for those quality control tasks
- Agree to definite time lines
- Well defined contract terms and willingness to manage project change requests
- Work crew was polite, willing to answer questions, kept the area clean, respectful of my privacy
- All around excellent people, including the office staff !
I will definitely have Paul's crew back for another project soon.
Thank you Gerry for your trust, and for allowing us to work with you!
Paul provided a quote to undertake the total renovation of my ensuite bathroom. I accepted his estimate and have been so pleased that I did. Paul and his assistant Rachel did an exceptional job. They were totally committed to making me happy with the results. It was a pleasure to have them in my home. Each day after they finished for the day, they cleaned up and left me feeling that tomorrow would be another good day. The results are beyond my expectations. Already there are future projects that I will call upon to undertake for me.
Pauls renovation came highly recommended through a good friend of mine. My husband and I were pleased with the fast, clean, and courteous service provided by Paul and his crew. We appreciated the help Paul provided in selections of the materials. Our renovation is beautiful, a room we will truly enjoy for many years thanks to the excellent and professional job done by this company.
Paul's Contracting did a marvelous job converting my unfinished basement into a liveable space. They were quick and efficient and professional and keep me in the loop every step of the way.
Thank you John for your business. It was a pleasure working with you!
I was extremely pleased with the work done by Paul's Contracting. The level of workmanship was excellent. They listened to what I wanted and delivered.

It was a real privilege Ann to work with you on your bathroom project You had so many contractors to choose from! Thanks again for your trust and business!!
A quick review on Paul's contracting. During the deep dark days of COVID, my wife and I engaged with Paul to do a renovation on our kitchen. Paul was attentive to detail, very professional, and always made a point to get back to us based on our desired needs in a timely manner. Unfortunately, due to labour shortages on Paul's end during COVID, he was not able to complete our project. We decided to move on to another contractor based on our timelines. Paul did still continue to communicate with us and explain his situation which we were emphatic too. And, he was kind enough to give back the deposit we originally had put down for this project. Therefore, I am extremely confident that Paul is a man of his word and will follow through with whatever desired need you need done.
Covid was definitely a challenge in many ways for many of us working in the trades. Thank you Ryan for your understanding and patience through those difficult days!
We were immediately impressed with the detailed booklet put together for us with drawings, materials listings, and a lot of other information. Paul and his team were absolutely fantastic to work with and did a marvelous job. It's always a bit nerve wracking to have unknown people in your home, especially with young children, but we felt completely safe with the team. Whenever there were issues that came up, they told us right away and presented us with the various options. We did most of the shopping for products and the team stayed true to their quote for the work done. Our bathrooms look fantastic and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out.
It was a very long wait to get them here, longer than expected, but I don't believe any longer than with others. It was 5 weeks to finish two bathrooms and a new laundry closet. They didn't come and go to work on other projects at the same time, which we appreciated.
We would highly recommend.
Thank you for your patience as we navigated scheduling challenges with supply chain delays and other rippling factors from Covid. We re happy to hear you re satisfied with our work, and our commitment to serve you as promised!!
We contacted Paul in October 2021. We had a couple other quotes from other contractors and Paul seemed the most organized. We signed the contract and gave the deposit Nov 15, 2021 with the start date in contract of “TBA” but verbally for mid-Jan. Fast forward almost each month thereafter to me reaching out to Paul asking when we were going to be starting our project (a primary bathroom renovation- including a shower that was leaking and non-functional). He bumped us every couple of months (stating Covid and lack of staff) until we reached August where after several weeks of emailing, calling and texting letting him know we could not wait any longer and we wanted our deposit back. He kept brushing us off, not answering and saying ”he will look into this.” On August 30th, he finally responded to a formal email we wrote up referencing the Consumer Protection Act whereby if work has not commenced within 30 days of contract, consumer is entitled to a refund. He stated he would get our depot back ”by the end of the week.” Fast forward again now to Sept 20th and again he is not responding to our calls and emails. He also seems to have deleted his business information on Google where I (and another poster from months before) had given him 1 star reviews. This is not what a mother of 3 kids wants to deal with. It has been a nightmare working with Paul and I regret the moment I called him for a quote. We have had other contractors in since signing with him. Other contractors have (reasonable) wait times, yes, but not the lack of communication that we’ve experienced with Paul. At this point, we are looking into legal action.
We absolutely dropped the ball on how we managed this situation with you Krista! Having refunded your deposit and apologizing for your experience, we also took to heart there was room for more improvement. Since then, we ve added more staff in the office and field to ensure we meet our service commitments. We value your feedback, and please know that it helped us focus on where to improve!
