In the beginning of our renos I researched top contractors in the greater Toronto area. I came across The Renovators and they had fantastic reviews. So we met with Kevin who immediately struck us as someone we could completely trust, and we were right. Kevin and his team have a great deal of knowledge and experience. At times we were difficult to work with due to our hectic schedule but Kevin and his team were always patient and accommodating. We are so happy with the finished project. Going forward there is only one contractor we will ever work with and that is Kevin and his team at The Renovators. If you are someone reading reviews looking for a great contractor do yourself a favor and contact Kevin.
I recently hired The Renovators to do my master bathroom. I’ve done many renovations on my house in the past 25 years and I must say that this was the best experience I’ve had with a contractor. The entire team was very easy to work with and very knowledgeable. The work was completed on time and there was communication throughout the whole process. The quality of the work was magnificent. I’ll be using The Renovators again for some other project in the future. I highly recommend The Renovators.
The Renovators crew came in to install a back splash in our kitchen, install new appliances that required a new water line and place new laminate in our upstairs hallway and bedrooms. Very happy with the finished product, however we are absolutely in love with the stone wall they created in our living room that houses our television and fire place. Matt, Kevin and the team outdid themselves in building this new faux wall, matching it perfectly in width to our built in shelving units and placing the stone so perfectly, it really looks like it has been there all along. Always courteous, professional, and on time, we would highly recommend the Renovators for any type of work. We are more than pleased with all the work they have done.
Overall the experience with the renovators was great! We've heard too many stories of projects not finishing in time and too many lawsuits in basement projects with other companies. We wanted an experienced team that will do what's agreed and on time. The renovators exceeded our expectations. We'll absolutely use them again.
After having opinions and quotes from several builders and handymen, we decided to go with these guys. Lisa understood the project perfectly from Ikea documents, communicated and organized the team very well. Kevin, came for the site visit for quote adjustment, never exaggerated the project steps. Matt was very precise and proficient. Ryan was a very good helper in the team. We found them on this website, and previous 61 excellent reviews helped us to choose them. If I have a similar project again I will certainly contact them.
We were first time home buyers looking to buy a new home with an unfinished basement. Getting the basement done as we moved in was very important to us. We looked around to find a good renovation company, not ever dealing with one before, we went on reviews we found online. After doing lots of research and requesting multiple quotes from different company's' we made the decision to go with them. The Renovators have were professional from start to finish. We had many questions as this was our first renovation and all answers were given in a professional and timely manor. Our experience was exactly what we had hoped for, the basement is beautiful.
We were pleased with the end result, our 30 year old bathroom is now bright and appears larger. Thanks to the crew!
We chose The Renovators because the initial contact and emails were very informative and organized. They received great reviews and the quote was very similar to others that we had received.
We loved working with "The Renovators" when we had our basement finished with a 3 piece bathroom. We had obtained five quotes, The Renovators came in somewhere in the middle but they were the only one who came in with an actual blue print design/layout and one with which we never would have even thought of on our own. Kevin had a structured plan with construction processes laid out with timelines and a payment schedule. Lisa looked after all the scheduling and was a great help on recommending finishes from flooring to tiles and bathroom vanity. Kevin's crew was great and assistant lead contractor Matt was very knowledgeable and on top of everything.
We had purchased several items for our new basement ranging from a large TV, mini fridge, dry bar and our bathroom vanity which Kevin arranged to pick them all up and installed. They even moved a large treadmill from our second floor den to the basement and we still can't figure out how they accomplished it. During the completion of our basement we had mentioned our carpet in our bedroom had buckled in the middle of the room for years so they had their carpet installer take a look and he discovered the builder never tacked it in along one entire wall so he stretched it out, cut the excess off and tacked it in.
Kevin's crew then put all our furniture and bed back together in the bedroom and the carpet has been great ever since. We can't say enough about Kevin, Lisa and their crew and we are forever thankful that we chose them for basement project.

When we had another project at hand our only thought was to call "The Renovators" and we didn't even bother with checking costs with other contractors since we had such a great experience working with The Renovators the first time around on our basement project.
We wanted to get some privacy from house directly behind us and with a large deck of approx. 20 ft in width a privacy fence of four individual lattice screens would require some support.
We had been watching some deck shows of HGTV where they were always putting up pergola's so I did some research Online and found a kit one could purchase for quite a bit of $$ as well as some individual Lattice Privacy Screen pictures from a deck company so I printed off pictures of both designs.
I contacted Lisa of "The Renovators" and she arranged for Kevin and Matt to come by and take a look.
I had already done some additional research with City of Brampton for Zoning By Law regulations to determine size allowance so Kevin and Mat reviewed the Pergola dimensions and privacy screen designs I had found on line and set a date to start the required work.
When we arrived home after the second day of construction we were absolutely amazed with how Kevin and Matt had duplicated the pergola and privacy screens to a T and it's now a great space that we enjoyed this past summer and look forward to many more.
Another great experience working with the professionals at "The Renovators" and we're sure it won't be our last.

This was the first time we’ve used “The renovators”. In building our basement, we were happy with the work done and recommended them to our friends, who also used the company. The communication by everyone on their team kept us informed of everything from timelines, payment schedules, tweaks along the way, and to our finishing options. However, near the end of the project, it was a little difficult to confirm who or when they would be onsite to complete the minor jobs.
We found their quote to be fair and we stayed on budget throughout the project. Any additional extras and costs were communicated. The workmanship on our newly completed basement; including washroom and storage area is very good and they made a great effort to keep the job site clean.
I'd recommend The Renovators to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy contractor.
This is the second time I have used The Renovators, both times were for bathroom renovations. Kevin and his staff were friendly and polite as well as knowledgeable. In both instances they identified problems that had previously been overlooked. The first being mold in the walls of my basement bathroom which they promptly removed. The second was water damage to the floor underneath my upstairs bathroom, again they were quick to resolve the issue.
Their work was always completed in a timely manner and at the end of each day they were diligent about cleaning up after themselves. The quality of there work was top notch, exactly what I had hoped for. They were a great help in coordinating with other contractors that were in conjunction with them. On top of all of that they were extremely helpful in the planning and design phase, especially Lisa. Dealing with the Renovators was thoroughly pleasant experience and I look forward to using them to complete my next home renovation project.
Since my last review in 2012, we had The Renovators twice. In 2014, they renovated our bedroom where they removed old cupboard and replaced it with IKEA cupboard. Fixed the walls and paint the walls. The room looks beautiful now. Again job done on time.
This month in June 2016, they did our dinning room and hallway. They had laid our living room in 2012 and now the challenge was to match it all. They did beautiful job and one will note that as if it was done in one go. There was issue of floor difference between kitchen and dinning room and also small washroom solved. All doors were rehung. Laid tiles in the hall.
We are very satisfied overall. Very professional and keep on time. A well done job.
I'm thrilled with the work done in my home by The Renovators. The communication by everyone on their team kept me informed of everything from timelines, payment schedules, tweaks along the way and finishing options.
The quotes were fair and we stayed on budget throughout the project. I was always made aware of the hours the guys would be at my house, and they stayed on track, completing the project in the time they said they would.
The job site was cleaned at the end of each day, with special attention given to the main living area of my home.
The workmanship of our newly completed basement, powder room, laundry room, mud room and foyer are far superior to the workmanship done by our builder. Even my detail oriented Father-in-law was impressed (which says a lot)!!!
It was a pleasure to share my home with The Renovators for the four weeks of the project. The guys were always friendly, courteous and kind. As was Lisa, who runs the project from the office. I'd recommend The Renovators to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy contractor, with great attention to detail and communication!
The Renovators did a fantastic job renovating our basement bathroom and doing other odd jobs that we requested while they were doing the reno. The workmanship was what we have come to expect from The Renovators. The work was done on-time, within budget and with no mess. The Renovators are our go-to company for all of our work. My entire family feel comfortable with the entire crew.
We had our kitchen renovated just before Christmas. Everything went well on time and budget! The guys did a really professional job. Couldn't be happier with the result. Definitely will go with them to renovate the bathroom soon.
From the initial website contact to followup after project completion, communication was excellent. Lisa promptly answered questions, explained the process and updated me regarding any changes in plans. I felt confident going into the project after a comprehensive quote, positive reference checks and meeting Kevin in person on-site. Regarding the project itself, the work was completed as per the plan, on schedule and budget. I was happy with the quality of work, in particular with a somewhat challenging tile installation. Although the cost was at the higher end of my three quotes, it was worth the stress-free process and beautiful results! I would not hesitate to call The Renovators for my next project.
This is the 3rd and last renovating job for the boys at "THE RENOVATORS" they have now basically re-done my whole house. As always it was pleasure working with them and I advise everyone who is looking for a GREAT CONTRACTOR to get in touch with them. I have told them they can give my phone number out to anyone who wishes a personal referance.
After meeting with multiple contractors, we decided to go with Kevin and the guys to do a complete renovation of our upstairs main bathroom and ceiling replacement in our family room.
The guys are all very professional and the quality of work they provide is exceptional. They provided us with much valued advice and even finished the job ahead of schedule.
We look forward to working with them again!
This is our second experience with Kevin, Lisa and "the guys"...and hopefully not our last. The renovation this time was a full kitchen remodel and we are beyond happy with the work that was done. New hardwood floors, insulation and walls, repair of old "fixes", new bulkhead, electrical, cabinet install, backsplash, plumbing, vent hood...basically everything! The Renovators crew are very professional and easy to work with. They were very courteous and respectful of the fact that I work from home. We look forward to working with The Renovators again in the future.
After an intensive review of over 50 contractors, reduced to a short list of six capable companies, we selected The Renovators to do a complete renovation of a dated basement. It involved removing almost everything that was there and starting from scratch. We ended up with a basement in which we can live and work, which is bright and airy and very functional. The quality of the finished work is exceptional. The nature of renovation work is dirty and dusty, but the guys cleaned up every day and reconnected the washer and dryer every weekend. Communication was tops. Our questions were answered and concerns addressed promptly. Difficulties were explained and we were given options as to solutions. We appreciated the ideas and options that were presented to us. We highly recommend The Renovators for your renovation project.
I have hired The Renovators for years to do renovations both at home and work. The work is professional, on-time and always matches the quote given.
Kevin and his crew are great to work with. They are exceptional at their craft, provide quality workmanship and on-time completion. They delivered a superior product, satisfying us beyond our expectations. Kevin has an honest, get down to business work ethic. He knows how to get the most out of any budget. And above all, you can trust him. We will call on him again without hesitation. Thanks again for our beautiful upper nook Kevin !
Kevin, Lisa and the whole team at The Renovators just finished our full basement renovation. They were amazing to deal with, did amazing quality work and we are so happy we chose them for our project. We will certainly be having them back for our next projects. Tell all your friends, these are the guys you want to do your Renovation work. Fantastic!!
Buying a new home comes with many jobs to do and "The Renovators" were our first call. We worked with Kevin, Lisa & "the Crew" a few years ago to finish a basement at our previous home and were very please with their work and the whole experience. At our new home we needed a number of items installed before we moved in: ceiling fans, many light fixtures, gas stove, shower doors and a dishwasher hook-up and "The Renovators" were up to the task. This being the 2nd time to work with them, though a much smaller scale we were just as impressed with the whole experience. Every task was done efficiently and was done on time so that we could move in. Lisa kept us informed of what was expected of us financially and when the crew would be at our home. What more can you want? Would we recommend them "We have" and "We will again" in an instant. We were so happy that The Renovators were willing to take on what we considered a small job but necessary jobs and if we need anything more done "The Renovators" will again be our first call.
We just completed our basement renovation and I must say that I am left in aww. The craftsman ship is impeccable. Lisa, Kevin and his team did an amazing job with completing everything in detail. They are clean, discreet, quiet and trustworthy. They made the process simple for us by providing us with a cost analysis breakdown of where the money would be going to and then worked with us to upgrade. The payments were staggered which made it easy for us to pay. There were no big charges that we had to pay upfront. Lisa made communication very easy and clear, her amazing customer service made it a pleasure for me to ask questions regarding the project. We loved working with them and will certainly contact them for our next project.

After working with several different contractors for various parts of our house, The Renovators proved to be the one company I should have started and stayed with. They were open to our design needs and had excellent suggestions to add to the job. Every aspect of their work was of high quality and workmanship. They left my home clean and ready for use- I did not have to go around and pick up, sweep or clean after them. Payment was easily staggered so cost was very reasonable. Most of all, the staff were personable, respectful of our privacy and could be left alone in the house without worry. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a competent, skilled and trustworthy contractor, no matter how big or small the job.
I hired The Renovators to finish my basement and was very pleased with the experience and finished product. They presented their quote very professionally and worked within the budget I had outlined for them. They always showed up consistently on time and kept the project on track. The ongoing communication was excellent and they maintained a clean worksite. They organized and managed a permit application and inspections on my behalf all the way through final approval. I've had several renovations completed on my home in the past and this was certainly the best overall experience I've had with any contractor. I am happy to provide them with a reference and recommendation and intend on using them again for future renovation I am planning for a full bathroom.
I originally started planning my basement renovation without much of an idea of what I wanted but with a clear idea of my budget. I was given the original quotation (broken down in components) and only then realized the degree of detail involved in planning for my perfect space.
Lisa was immensely helpful and patient, supplying me with prices for items I wanted to add and discounts for items or services I wanted removed over the next two months until I finally settled upon my ideal combination of renovations within my budget.
Luckily the Renovators work much faster that I! The project was scheduled to begin within three weeks of me giving them the go ahead and was completed in just over two weeks. All the team were conscientious, clean and courteous. My hall and drive were swept clean and free of debris every day before they left for the evening.
Every task was completed with great attention to detail and professionalism. I am immensely grateful for the "little extras" which were done without my asking and which finished off the project perfectly, right down to the final cleaning!
Thank you, "Renovators" for the best experience with a renovation project I have ever had. You shall certainly be the first company I call on any future projects.
Well, I'm back again, teaming up with my boys at Renovators, the same wonderful crew that I had do my upstairs reno has now finished my basement reno. Again, what can I say other than a JOB WELL DONE as always. They completely gutted my bathroom including the cement floor to change the foot print of the fixtures. They re-drywalled the rec room, rearranged the duct work for better air flow, put in new electrical and a new ceiling. They will be back to finish of my flooring in the summer time.
Lisa has done a wonderful job with my quotes, extras, changes and being available no matter what the time of day we needed to be in contact. We have not met personally but she is one of my GREAT email friends. Thanks again to all of my friends at Renovators. Laura & her puppies.
The first day Kevin came over to assess our bathroom reno I had a good feeling about the company. He arrived on time as promised by Lisa who does all the client communication. Our reno was a complete gut so we had a lot of questions for Kevin and he was very patient and answered all our questions and concerns. Kevin was straight and honest. - this gave us a good feel to move forward.
We booked our reno apporx 2 weeks in advance and proceeded to shop for fixtures. Lisa helped alot giving us shopping advice.
Kevin and his crew arrived promptly on a Monday morning and for the next 5 days they were hard at work on our reno. I liked the fact that they dedicated 100% to this 1 job - this is the way a reno is supposed to work. I was impressed by their honesty, professionalism and a Job well done.
We have already started planning our second bathroom reno with them.
The decision to renovate one' s home is such a daunting task. There are so many decisions to make! The greatest decision is no doubt choosing just the right renovating company! Both my wife and I were overjoyed to find a company that deals in excellence. From the first phone call, you knew you were dealing with a most reputable company. Questions were answered thoroughly and in a very timely manner. The workers were informative,accommodating, punctual , and above all very professional.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone.
We hired The Renovators to remodel and update our master ensuite and also to do some tile work in another bathroom. We brought in several companies for quotes, but ultimately decided on The Renovators for 2 reasonsâ€¦.price and professionalism. Communication with them was a breeze as Lisa worked her magic behind the scenes. She is an excellent mediator between homeowner and crew. On site, the contractors were courteous and clean. Any questions or issues we had were addressed and professionally handled. They even went above and beyond and fixed an unrelated plumbing emergency that popped up while they were here. Customer satisfaction seems to be their motive, and they strive to accomplish and maintain that responsibility in all aspects of their jobs. The coop students they hire seem to learn a great deal from the team leads and I admire the company's willingness to teach. All in all, it was a successful completion and a beautiful outcome. We will most definitely hire them for our next home renovation and would recommend them to family and friends.
I recently called upon The Renovators to work on my main bathroom renovation project and all I can say is that they did an amazing job from start to finish.
Your customer service right from the beginning was excellent compared to other contractors who in some cases never even called me back with a quote after I left several messages.
Lisa your follow up and thoroughness was greatly appreciated.
The Renovators were very professional, efficient and flexible to changes based on my requests. They were also very accommodating knowing that it was my main bathroom with one and only shower and they made the project the least inconvenience as possible for me. Each day the work area was tidied up and I was able to walk into my home with little evidence of a renovation taking place.
My bathroom looks amazing and it turned out exactly as I had envisioned it. I will definitely be calling on Kevin, Dave, Lisa and the rest of the team for a basement renovation in the future. I highly recommend the Renovators.
I am a single woman who purchased a fixer upper townhouse. My second floor was in terrible shape with a bathroom straight out of the "70's. I sent out a number of requests for quotes and found my newly found friends "THE RENOVATORS". They did an excellent job on gutting and re-doing my main bathroom. They installed all new doors and door jams for my 4 bedrooms, as well as all new casing around windows & doors. I also wanted my upstairs hall reworked which included matching up laminate flooring. The workmanship, quality, experience and attitude of the crew was outstanding. The working area was always left in clean and livable condition. I would recommend this company to anyone. I have given their name to one of my co-workers and I have them coming back to my house to do my recreation room and bathroom in my basement.
Renovators, mediator Lisa is well organized, courteous, knowledgeable and fun to deal with. I never had any reason to double or not understand what any of our conversations were about and also make note that I was also on vacation while all of this was taking place. So the communication factor WAS extremely important.
IN TOTAL, A GREAT EXPERIENCE, WITH A JOB WELL DONE.
After years of living without it, we finally decided to have a door installed from our house to garage. The choice of contractor was simple - after previously hiring the renovators to finish our basement there was absolutely no question on hiring them again for this work. Working with Kevin, Lisa, and the team at The Renovators was as easy and pleasant as the first time. At our request, Kevin dropped off the door and framing ahead of time so that I could paint it myself and save some money. They day of the install the crew was punctual, courteous, and took every care to the minimize dirt and dust from the job entering the house. The final product was great and looked much better than something the house builder would have done. Our only regret was not having this work done sooner!
I have truly enjoyed my experience with the Renovators. They are awesome from start to finish and all their expertise I was comfortable and could trust them and not have to worry. Their work is fantastic and worth every penny and when I needed guidance or advice on the project Lisa and Kevin were there for me. Kevin, Matt and Lisa and Dave were awesome and the pricing was just perfect.
I would use them again and again and plan to for all my future renovations.
Elisa & Jason M.
After extensive research, we selected The Renovators to transform our builder basement into our dream space and we couldn't be more pleased. This was the first home renovation for us and The Renovators made it extremely easy. They were responsive, supportive and accommodating throughout, answering all of our questions and offering helpful alternatives and advice. We gave them unfettered access to our home, depended on them to get the job done with little to no supervision, on time and within budget and they did not disappoint. This is obviously a team of professionals who care about their work and will be the first we will call for any future renovations.
Working with the team at the Renovators was a great experience. From the first day of getting an estimate, to the final inspection day, the team was professional and courteous. The workmanship was great, and our needs were addressed every step of the way. The work was done in a timely fashion, and the professionals with Renovators made recommendations to make our new space even better than we planned. We are extremely happy with our new basement, and would recommend the Renovators to anyone thinking of doing home renovations!
If youâ€™re looking for a reliable, professional and honest contractor you cannot possibly do better than The Renovators. The foreman, Kevin is professional yet very friendly. Not only does he give a spot on estimate, he is part of the crew the entire job so changes and suggestions are dealt with immediately. My renovation was a complete basement overhaul including washroom and was very time sensitive. The entire crew worked tirelessly. Communications with Lisa at the office were immediate, responsive and helpful. She was a joy to deal with. The project was completed on time and on budget and we were ecstatic with the results. It was better than we had expected or envisioned. We especially liked the â€œextra little touchesâ€ that were included. They also take extra care when walking through the house and I had no clean-up to do when they left each day. There was absolutely nothing that could have been done to improve this experience. I would highly recommend The Renovators for any project you are planning and will definitely use them in the future.
In a time when customer service is lacking at best, and finding a contractor you can trust is nearly impossible, I was lucky enough to find The Renovators.
The work I needed done included providing better support for a large above ground deck, resurfacing it, and installing new railing/privacy panels. Not only did The Renovators team exceed expectations on the work they completed, they took my custom design and turned it into exactly what I had envisioned, bettering it areas we agreed upon.
Every change, update, or suggestion was discussed and I was given choices for what the end product would be, with the team providing insight from their experiences to guide me to the best possible solution. Their workmanship is EXCEPTIONAL and I have a beautiful deck (just ask my jealous neighbours!!) that will last for many years to come.
There are many companies out there that could easily take a lesson from The Renovators on how to provide a service, these guys have it perfected!
I will have The Renovators back from some additional work in the future.
Thank you to Lisa, Kevin, Matt and Richard for such a fantastic experience.
The Renovators have now completed two major projects at my home in the past 3 years. The first was our deck in 2010. We gave them a pretty tight deadline on that one and they came through beautifully. There were no hidden costs or suprises, the price quoted was the price we paid. It was more of the same with our basement project in early 2013. The design came out exactly as was presented, on budget, and was completed well within our time requirements. One of the crew members was even kind enough to repair a hole I made in a bedroom wall upstairs, and even sanded and primed the repaired area for me! For my deck project I selected them mainly due to their low price. However for the basement, I selected them because we knew from our previous experience that they do quality work, we could trust them, and most importantly, that we would be happy with the finished product.
We contracted The Renovators to remove existing ceramic tile in our foyer/powder room and laundry room and lay a spectacular Travertine pattern. They also removed a shower in the powder room to revert it to a foyer closet. This was our first contracted renovation and we were very happy with the outcome. The finished product is absolutely fabulous; the overall project management of the job was very professional yet fun and friendly.
From the initial walk through to provide a quote right up to the end of the project (and beyond) Kevin and Lisa provided amazing customer service and were a joy to work with. The entire team (right down to the co-op students) were polite, courteous, and friendly and they put up with a lot of questions from an avid DIYer!
We were also very impressed that Kevin and Lisa are involved in the high school Co-op program (we even had a visit from one of the teachers!). This says a lot about the kind of people they are and the kind of business they run.
We have a list of things to be done and we will definitely be calling The Renovators again!!!
We recently had our main bathroom renovated by Kevin and his team, and it was a very positive experience overall. The process from start to finish was well-organized, and they stayed completely on track with the timeline they had initially given us. Kevin and his team have the perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness, which makes them fantastic (and fun!) to work with. And Lisa does a great job behind the scenes coordinating everything, as well as keeping track of the budget and work details. Weâ€™re so happy with the transformation of our bathroom, and we would highly recommend The Renovators to others.
They did an excellent job on time and budget for replacing hardwood floor in the living room of our 100 years old home. Very prompt in responding to our questions. The crew working were very couteous and polite. We were happy with the work and will have them back to do other jobs. As house is old, they were dealing with a lot of issues.
Since our 2012 Review we had them twice. in 2014 they renovated our bedroom and did a great job.
In June 2016 they renovated our dining room and hall way. They laid new floor which was matched up the floor they did in 2012, Fixed some the problems on walls. In all we are very happy with them and highly recommend them
We have just had a bathroom renovated in our home by Kevin and his team at The Renovators. It was a great experience from start to finish. We were in a tight time crunch and they were very accommodating and worked it into their schedule. Timing was great. They were in and out in 1 week as promised. We have had many other renovations done in our home and have never had them completed on time! The professionalism of everyone from the costing to the finishing was great. All of the guys were polite and respectful of our home. Their work ethic was impressive and the finished product is just what we were looking for.
We would definitely use the Renovators again and would highly recommend them to our family and friends!
We hired The Renovators to finish our basement, build a wood shed in our backyard and complete the drywall of our garage ceiling. We were very satisfied with the process, the timing and the workmanship. Kevin and Lisa were honest, professional and accomodating throughout the whole project. The crew were professional, polite and approachable. We would definitely hire The Renovators for future projects and highly recommend them to family, friends and inquirers.
Home renovation projects can be tough on you and your entire family. Especially so, when you are right in the middle of it for almost a month and a half and it is as elaborate as finishing your basement. Horror stories from friends about torrid times given by numerous â€œfly by nightâ€ operators in the garb of contractors keeps you on tenterhooks. We started our search for a good contractor almost 3 to 4 months before our target start date. After thorough research, we must have short listed 15-16 contractors for sending the initial request for a meeting on site. We eventually met around 8 good contractors in GTA and received 6 quotes for the project. The only contractors we met were the ones who had great word of mouth references and vouched for by their past clients. "The Renovators" were the last contractor met and we never regretted our decision to go with them for our basement. We personally met 4 of their past clients and saw the quality of work put in before finalizing them. The first meeting with Kevin on site was good. His pleasant demeanor and a "Yes, consider that done" response to virtually every requirement was amazingly reassuring. The quote was in the upper mid range but their glowing references sealed it for us. And then we literally saw our dream turn into reality. The team operates like clockwork in a thoroughly professional manner and Kevinâ€™s daily presence and involvement is reassuring too. Kevin's partner Lisa is another reason why "the Renovators" make such an awesome team to have on your project. Right from the initial quote, Lisa's systematic emails are a tremendous help in keeping track of work, deadlines and payment schedule. Payments are linked to work progress and everything is transparent which also ensures that you stick to your budget. What we were quoted is what we finished with, minimal surprises through the way unless you expand the scope of work yourself. We greatly appreciate having "The Renovators" finish our basement project in an efficient and professional manner and would gladly have them on our property again for all our future renovation needs.
Great people, great work. Took them on a second time to reno. the washroom, they excelled once again. I would state 'looks exactly like the picture' but that would be an understatement, it exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to future renovations with The Renovators. Highly recommended.
We chose to have The Renovators finish our basement. Hiring The Renovators was a choice that we are happy we made. We first came across the company on handycanadian.com, where they had many positive reviews from past clients. When providing a free estimate, The Renovators provided a detailed floor plan and price breakdown that clearly explained the price of each aspect of the job. Not only was it in writing, but Kevin clearly explained each component of the quote and was very happy to answer any questions that we had. Also, Kevin was instrumental with providing design ideas such as where to build a bathroom and storage to maximize space. Of all the contractors we received quotes from; he was the only one who provided outside the box thinking.
During the actual renovation, we felt that Kevin and his team were extremely professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and trustworthy. The whole team was willing and eager to please us and guide us through the renovation process. Communication was another priority for The Renovators. We regularly had conversations with Kevin about the renovation process, and received e-mails consistently from Lisa, with updates for our project. Kevin, Lisa, and the crew were able to educate us as the renovation went on, eliminating any stress that may have occurred without them. The Renovators do not cut corners or shorthand any job aspect. They provided attention to detail and even went out of their way to ensure that they produce the best final product.
Once the job was complete, Lisa contacted us to ensure that we were totally pleased with our new basement. They were willing and eager to fix any problems or blemishes that we may have had, even after the final payment. Once again going beyond to please their clients. We were very pleased with our basement. The whole project was completed on time, and exactly to the quote initially provided at the start of the whole process. The Renovators is an excellent choice for any project. When I need to complete another job, I would be eager to hire them to do the work. I would recommend for others to use The Renovators at their home.

Anytime you take on a renovation itâ€™s stressful no matter how prepared you are for it. With â€œThe Renovatorsâ€ all staff worked very hard to make our basement renovation go as smoothly as possible. The staff are very knowledgeable, they work with you not against you and the end result is a project we are very pleased with. The team made sure our project started on time/finished on time and on budget. The communication between us and the entire Renovator team couldnâ€™t have been better and thus it was a great experience. If we had another renovation to do we would certainly use them again.
We would highly recommend The Renovators based on our recent experience with them finishing off our basement with a nursery, full bath and two storage areas. The work was very well done, their services were professionally delivered and the results are great - the space looks wonderful. Lisa and Kevin and their crew know the meaning of customer service and how to deliver quality results that meet or exceed expectations.
We gave the Renovators full marks on all of the ratings because they truly deserve it. We short-listed them (for our basement renovation) initially after several responses through HandyCanadian based on their previous rating and credentials. When we first met with Kevin in person we were pleasantly impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, enthusiasm and the fact that he came back in person to go over and explain the quote to us. The Renovators are more than just a "Contractor"; they are true professionals and run everything like a business should be run. Lisa runs the "business" and keeps the client up to date on every detail throughout, and Kevin not only manages the actual work but participates hands-on, every step of the way. Although he has a very capable crew, Kevin was on the job and getting his hands dirty every day of the project. It is very apparent that he genuinely loves what he does and it really shows in the final product. Our experience with the Renovators definitely put a lot of the typical contractor horror stories to rest. We will definitely use the Renovators for our next project!
We are very pleased with the quality of work and the professional care 'the Renovators' have taken in the construction of our basement. We thank Kevin for spending the time with us during the design process, coming up with an amazing plan to utilize the space, and managing the project to completion - it worked out exactly as we envisioned and exceeded our expectations. Lisa kept us scheduled and informed on every step of the way and it was much appreciated. And the staff were professional, informed, and talented - what impressed us most was the attention to detail. A thanks also goes out to Matt, Dan, and Dave. The results were awesome and we couldn't be happier. I look forward to using their services again in the near future and would recommend their services to anyone.
4 piece bath. The Renovators did such a great job with our other bathroom, it was a "no brainer" to call them back to do this one. Everything turned out great again. On time and at the quoted (and very reasonable) price. I know there must have been parts of the job that took longer than expected, but there were no complaints and no adjustments to the quote. They just got the job done as promised! Now that we have such professional and reliable contractors, we may never move!
Kevin and his team just completed our basement renovation on time, on budget and it looks great.
Kevin is the rare contractor that listens to his clients requests and makes customer service a priority.
Having renovations in your home can be very inconvenient but the entire Renovators crew were courteous, polite and respectful. In many ways they delivered more than expected.....such as fixing damage in my kitchen caused by a different contractor.
I interviewed 5 contractors before hiring Kevin and his team. For future home renovations The Renovators will be the only call we make.

After being frustrated by the seemingly overpriced estimates by and sometimes indifferent attitudes from a couple of other contractors, as well as that company that renovates "over" existing problems, I found The Renovators. The quote was what I expected to pay (20%-30% cheaper than the others) so I said "let's do it!". They arrived when they said they would, and even though it was a relatively small job, they treated it as their #1 priority throughout the project. Always on time, and perfectly according to the estimate. No surprises and a great finished product. Very satisfied customer in Brampton (November 2010). Will be a repeat customer!
From the first visit to review the space to the last shake of the drop cloths Kevin and his team at The Renovators provided outstanding service and an excellent finished project. Professional, timely, responsive, knowledgeable, flexible, design ideas and outside the box thinking when our existing floorplan presented challenges -- The Renovators turned a stripped to the bones, basement space into a cozy family room/laundry/3 pc bath addition. We recommend this company very highly and will be contacting the team for future work. Estimates were itemized, competitive and easy to follow. The schedule was maintained. Kevin and his team never settled for 'good enough'. Their workmanship shows in the finished product. The plus - great team spirit and respectful work style while in our home, allowed for a non-disruptive and low/no stress environment to come home to during the reno.
Earlier the year, I contracted The Renovators to have a bathroom reno done, and would hire them for any future project that I was going to undertake. I found Kevin very knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, most helpful in selecting fixtures with pros and cons concerning some of my choices. He was always willing to address any concerns and issues that I had.
The project was started on schedule and completed in the estimated time allotted. The crew was polite, very affable and left the work site in a tidy state at the end of each day so that there was minimal interference with daily living. It is always a pleasure to work with professionals who take pride in their work.
The Renovators were a great team to work with, very courteous, professional and came on budget with our needs. They exceeded our expectations and always strived to make us happy making changes along the way if necessary. I would definitely recommend them to others and we will be using their services again in the future.
Hi, we are Mr and Mrs Braga of Mississauga. We have had The Renovators do numerous projects for us in the past. It all started with a new wood floor in our home in Brampton. While doing the wood floor I asked for an estimate on a deck in the back. We liked the ideas that Kevin had presented and his quote were very reasonably priced compared to other quotes that we had been given. From there we have had some painting and upgraded trim work done in our new home in Mississauga. The latest and biggest project that The Renovators have done for us is our basement. We hoinestly did not think it could be done by Christmas last year, but to our pleasant surprise, they were. Not only were we and our kids amazed with in our new basement and family space, it was on time and budget as promised. We look forward to havening The Renovators be apart of our next home improvement.

The Renovators did a fantastic job on our basement . Their workmanship is exemplary and the job was finished on schedule. We have no reservations in recommending them to anyone who would like quality work done , on time and on budget. We will certainly use their services for future reno projects.
My husband and I hired "The Renovators" do finish our basement. We are very pleased with the workmanship and how quickly they finished. They were very pleasant to speak to, they worked long hours to get things done, and they never went ahead with anything without asking us first. They explained everything to us in detail and made sure we understood what it is exactly that was being done. We would definitly refer them to friends and family.
We recently had our basement finished by Kevin and his team. Kevin came in to give us an estimate and came back to us with 2 floor plans (1 being ours and the other his suggestion). He sat down with us and explained all the options with us. Kevin explained everything and offered his suggestions to us as the job progressed. All communications with Lisa by email gave us prompt replies with most coming back with-in minutes. All the staff were extremely polite and kept the site clean. Kevin finished the job in the time frame he gave us and came in on budget even doing a couple of things to our house not even related to the original quotation. We will be using the Renovators again when we need some work done and will not hesitate to recommend them to our friends and family.
Kevin & crew just completed our basement! We worked with Kevin last year when he did a total reno in our master bathroom. After working with such a professional, we knew they would be the only company to turn our unused basement into a wonderful, comfortable family living space. As with our previous experience, the crew was courteous, clean and on time. I never once had to pick-up the phone & ask where they were like so many other owners have to do to get their reno done. We have recommended Kevin to friends and they too were very happy. If you want a stress free, on budget, professional job completed - call The Renovators!
We hired The Renovators to finish our basement this summer and were very happy with the process and the results. Care was taken in quoting the work to understand what we wanted to achieve. Kevin's experience added a lot of value in identifying options that we had not considered.
The Renovator's crew were experienced and courteous throughout the entire renovation. The work was done according to schedule and we were kept informed of the progress and next steps throughout the process. The work was completed according to the quotation, and changes that we requested throughout the project were addressed and costed timely and appropriately thanks to Lisa .
In all, we were very happy with the work of "The Kevin" and the crew. We would, and have, recommended The Renovators to family and friends for their upcoming projects and will use them again ourselves.
Kevin & his crew completed our master ensuite bathroom. It was a total gut & rebuild. We received 6 quotes . Kevin landed the project because he was the man to quote and the man on-site daily. The quote was easy to understand and the payment schedule made sense. His good first impression lasted throughout the renovation. Lisa keep the communication steady and offered good advice. Our bathroom usable space has doubled in size. Kevin took our vision and brought it to life. In the future we will hire Kevin again to complete the basement because the experience was so pleasant and professional.
