My bathroom was outdated and I had been waiting to do it for some time. The issue was who to hire. You hear so many horror stories on TV about bad contractors and it puts the fear in you about moving forward. I spoke with a few people from different sources but in the end I decided to go with Dave and Doug from Smart City Reno. I wasn’t disappointed and they were great with communications and were always on time. Also their designer Kiki Phukan was fabulous and really knew her stuff. She worked with me directly so I was happy with the choices being made and constantly sent me pictures and updates so I really didn’t have to do much of anything. It was a real pleasure working with this team and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a bathroom remodeling done and now I understand they do kitchens and complete condo renovations. I will be considering them for the future.
Dave and his crew were professional and kept my home clean and tidy at the end of each work day. His interior designer, Kiki Phukan picked all the fixtures and products for me which really helped. The job took a little longer than they originally intended but I did request some extra work be done and so the time increase was fair. I was very satisfied with the work and the kitchen and bathroom look fantastic.
I would definitely recommend Smart City Renovations as a solid team of professionals that provide superior workmanship and are very conscientious and careful in your home.
I was referred to Kiki Phukan to design a new kitchen for me. My budget wasn’t big but she was able to come up with so many great ideas to work within my cost restrictions. I didn’t realize the kind of quality you could get for the price. She was wonderful and highly professional. I would certainly recommend her services and I was very happy with the final product she provided me.
We were very delighted with the results we received from the smart city renovation team. I personally really value the time I got to spend picking out my new kitchen cabinets and accessories. I went through many different options with their designer and was especially thankfull for her expert advice on what colours work with which products. It was a longer renovation than we had expected but the tradesmen kept our place neat and tidy at the end of each day and this helped my family get through this. But I have no complaints because smart city really provided us a brilliant final product. I will definitely refer them to my friends. Thanks again.

Smart City Renovations has received 1 employee and/or sub-contractor complaints
This company is established by Kiki Phukan and Doug Cook. The couple (from Ajax) previously ran failed staging company and interior design company before making the transition to renovations. Neither is a licensed contractor, and neither has any experience in construction whatsoever, not even knowing the difference between a drywall screw and a self-tapping metal screw (which Doug asks subcontractors to use on drywall!). They use all kinds of wrong products in their projects, cut corners to save a buck whenever they can, and more often than not they compromise the safety and structure of your home. On the first project I worked with Doug he decided not to insulate one of the basement walls without telling the customer. On the second project, he decided to compromise the floor joists and a load bearing exterior wall in order to run his plumbing, again without notifying the customer (two elderly couple) about the structural risk created.
Doug conveniently goes by a fake name (Dave Struthers) to protect himself from lawsuits by his unpaid subcontractors he hires on Kijiji (including me). They have run under business names such as: Reveer Canada, Smart City Reno, Smart City Painting, and Milestone Renovation (all within two years). By the time you discover the damage they have left behind, they would be operating under a different business name, using different phone numbers, and Doug would be calling himself Dillion.
