In the field of home renovation one quickly learns many hang the shingle and few can actually deliver satisfactory results.
Roger of Property Rehab was one of the people called for an estimate. He showed up on time the first time.
He listened! At no time did he seem fazed by the request of a chimney removal, taking down a wall, installing new flooring and installing a new kitchen in a near 100 year old house. When asked if the plan was doable or if I was asking too much, his reply was,"All it needed is a hug."
The quote provided came within the budget planned. One of the concerns was if Roger could think out of the box. Could the team at Property Rehab deliver a unique idea different than what was being marketed to the masses. Blending the styles of farmhouse, log cabin and hobbit is an unusual request. Adding to that was the ability to have part of the design moveable and everything double duty.
Between the signing of the contract and the start date Roger was very patient and caring handling many questions and concerns.I think I may have succeeded in driving him crazy with design tweaks over many e-mails.Yet, I was well cared for with assurance and confidence.
Start day came and a 5 foot woman appears with a jack hammer. I had never met a woman in construction. Sheryl proved she was a match for most men! Lets just say she is a powerhouse full of doable.There was no messing around.The chimney came down in no time flat.She proved her knowledge base with action. Down came a wall. Plaster ceiling removed. Drywall ceiling installed. And all with a smile! Getting to know Sheryl was a delight. Hard working, dedicated and great customer skills lay within her portfolio.
As a matter of fact, each member of the Property Rehab team proved themselves reputable and trustworthy. Even through the hidden surprises held within an old house. The unforeseen reared its ugly head and Sheryl kept in constant contact as the wiring problem was worked through.
I am still amazed at the beauty of the live edge counter top and copper sink. A lovely work of art fashioned by Rob, the cabinet maker!
Another amazing part was the flexibility provided to work with the home owner. Staying within the alotted budget proved a bit of a challenge as ideas flowed. I chose to make some of the accents myself which kept me feeling like I was part of this project. Roger and Sheryl remained supportive with guidance and help when needed.
The experience with Property Rehab has been so positive that plans are being firmed up for the renovation of the second half of the house with this company.As well as new front and rear decks.
I consider it an honour to know these people.
