I would like to commend your company for a job well done on our basement renovation. The work was completed on time and on budget, and the results are truly spectacular. The basement is now a warm and inviting space that our family can enjoy for years to come. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this project. We are very pleased with the results.
We selected Renos Group for an extensive renovation; fully finishing approximately 1000 sq ft of empty basement, as well as a mixed hardwood/carpet installation on our upper bedroom level.
Our requirements were quite extensive, as we wanted several functional areas downstairs. Namely, a 3 pc bath, wet bar, soundproof studio, and 5 additional spaces (craft room, home gym, home office, entertainment room and furnace/storage). It sounds like a lot (and it is), but based on our design, with some slight modifications as things progressed, we now have some awesome spaces for our family.
Keith’s detailed quotation was a breeze to evaluate, and the only discrepancy between the estimate and the final cost were due to additions, changes and upgrades we made as the project progressed. These items were all well identified on the final tally, so once again, it was a breeze to review.
I think that it’s important to note that we were also living 12,000 km (and 12 time zones) away while all of this was being done ! Although our adult son and his partner were in the house to assist with logistics on site, Keith was very communicative with each of us and ensured we were apprised of every step along the way, raising questions or concerns immediately, and providing feedback on progress and solutions. Professional, yet personable, Keith and his team made us feel comfortable every step of the way.
There were a few standout items that really showed off their talents. Keith and his team did a great job creating a studio space where I am able to record and perform music without the audio interfering with other occupants. The level of sound and vibration has been reduced tremendously, and as a bonus, I also have 220VAC available for some of my foreign equipment.
We were also looking for a solution to take advantage of wasted space under the stairs. Based on some examples we found online, they created a large, 2 door, pull-out pantry, as well as a seating nook with power and a tea mug/smartphone shelf that one may curl up in to read, or even just to peruse the bookshelves directly opposite.
And all of this was completed in spite of material shortages, supply chain issues, and social distancing requirements during some of the worst periods of the pandemic. We were also lucky that we had an extended deadline, so Renos were able to easily manage our expectations. All in all, just a fantastic job.
I heartily recommend Keith and Renos Group for any work that needs to be done in your home.
Keith and Clavil did a great job on my bathroom renovation. They replaced my old bathtub with a walk in shower and updated the rest of the bathroom. I have hired them in the past and will hire them again for my next renovation
Love my new bathrooms. Thank you Keith for the work you did in resolving some issues that came up. Your knowledge and experience and dedication to the client is evident! You have a good team and all very polite and respectful and diligent...no time was wasted! Clean up was done daily and up to what i expected.
Keith provided a detailed written estimate for costs and labour which many of his competitors I am surprised to say do not! Keith made bring toilet placement up to code easy which meant mvong 4 inches. Other contractors made a big deal of it and could not provide estimate of the costs. I made some changes to the scope of the work and the as the job progressed-new drywall ceiling in bathroom, increased amount of tile in main bathroom (which looks very high end),removal of drywall around powder room window and Keith provided estimates on the go. with the cost break downs in the original estimate i could calculate the bottom line increase to the job costs as we went. No surprises. My sister recommended him and she was right-easy to work with and respectful. also a good sense of humour! Keith checked in daily to the site to see how progressing and to resolve any issues. Much appreciated!
What a beautiful review, very detailed and informative. Thank you very much for taking all the time to write out your thoughts and feelings. Thanks again
Thank you so much Keith, Mike and the team for all your hard work on the complete finishing of our basement. We needed to have it ready to be rented as soon as possible and you guys really came through. The hardwood flooring and counter tops look great and the design ideas you had worked out amazing. We are both so happy with the work and how stress free you made it. We will definitely be coming to you for any future work on our properties that we need work done. We would recommend this friendly, honest company to anyone that need renovations done around the house. Thanks again guys,
Chris and Lindsay
It was a pleasure working with you and your family. We hope you get lots of good tenants :-)

We never had an issues with any mess as they cleaned up every day and most importantly they were on time and stayed on budget! they made the whole process easy!! Great work guys!!
Thank you for being a great client :-) We enjoyed our time working with you.
We hired Renos Group to renovate our basement this past summer. When still at the stage of getting estimates and coming up with design options, I was first attracted to Renos Group because of the usability of their website through which I could quickly book an appointment for an estimate.
Though their costs were slightly higher than some of the other contractors we met with, we decided to go with Renos Group for several reasons:
• We liked Keith’s friendly, confident yet easy going attitude.
• We liked the very detailed estimate Keith gave us, clearly outlining both the administrative, labour and material costs as well as the amount of time required for each area/section of the project to be completed
• They were insured and the work was fully guaranteed.
• We appreciated the company’s flexibility in allowing us do some of the work (such as painting) ourselves; to purchase some of the materials ourselves when we could get them at a discount; and to modify our plans a couple of times once the project got underway. All of this helped us to save on costs in the long run.
Once the work began, there were of course some issues that cropped up. At times, some of the workers didn’t turn up as expected and at times reaching Keith was difficult. But, we found most of the crew to be courteous, dedicated, trustworthy and reliable. I had no issues leaving them alone in our home while I attended to other things. One of the workers, Adel, was especially professional, often coming early and not leaving until a particular job was done to his satisfaction, making up for the shortcomings of the others. Despite the minor glitches, the basement was completed pretty much on schedule and Keith provided us with updated quotes whenever some of the plans and choice of materials changed. He would not accept final payment until all of the work was completed to the last detail.
We are very pleased with our final, finished basement and recommend Renos Group for home renovation projects.
We have an older home and wanted to change our enclosed kitchen to open concept. From our first meeting, Keith and The RenosGroup team were great to work with. They answered our questions and walked us through the entire process. The quote provided was very detailed, easy to understand and accurate. The final product turned out great and we love our newly renovated kitchen. We definitely recommend the RenosGroup.
Thank you so much for the great review. We loved working on your project. It was great to have a project so close to home......travel time was excellent :-)
We hired Renos Group for a major kitchen renovation (design, load bearing wall removal, plumbing, gas, electrical, HVAC, cabinets, counters, main floor flooring and bathroom) after reading positive online reviews. Keith met, then surpassed his 5 star rating. I found Keith, his employees and carefully selected sub-contractors to be professional, personable, easy to work with and accommodating – and the respectful way that Keith treats his employees carries over into the quality of work produced. During the entire process he kept us up to date and on budget. The best part was that Keith handled everything – no renovation headaches or stress for us, definite value for money. Our new kitchen is something we can enjoy for years to come and we would not hesitate to recommend Renos Group.
Wow Maija, we are so appreciative when we get great clients like you. You were such a pleasure to work for and we had some good times with you throughout the renovation. We felt like family while we were there. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and being a great client.
We hired RenosGroup to fully renovate our kitchen and main floor (living room, dining room). From our first meeting until the end of the project, Keith and his team were courteous, understanding, knowledgeable and professional. They quickly worked to understand our needs and got started right away on creating our design, along with the cost of each particular item. We really appreciated the attention to detail and how Keith took the time at every step to explain the work being done and what the status was. Any additions, subtractions or delay were discussed with us in advance.
RenosGroup quality of work is second to none. They took great care to renovate and install everything to our exact specifications and preferences. We could not be happier with our beautiful new kitchen!
You were fantastic to work with, we appreciated all the good communication back and forth. Thank you very much for the kind words. We look forward to working with you in the future again.
