I just had Joey and his crew complete our basement renovation. He was able to provide a layout to suit our needs and took care of getting all required permits.
Joey and his crew framed in the basement and did the drywall work and painting down to the interior finishes like vinyl flooring, tiles, trim and doors. He had sub trades take care of the plumbing and electrical and they all worked seamlessly together. We are especially pleased with the final kitchen and bathroom design we went with and the final product!
I would highly recommend Joey and his team and will be using them in future projects.
Had Joey and company do the above noted job. Right from his first visit to see the job and give me a quote, Joey was very professional. Could tell he was very knowledgeable about this job and many other types of Reno’s. He installed Densshield backing for the wall tile and on the floor he did a lathe skim coat. Both were installed properly and smooth and level. He did a nice layout of the wall tile and flawless installation. Everything is very even with consistent 1/16” space. Floor layout was also done evenly and smooth again with 1/16” space. The grouting of the wall and floor was nicely done with the grooves filled fully. Job was done over 5 days time due to having to wait for thin-set to dry. The final task was to seal the grout to resist stains. I would highly recommend Joey for any type of work. Pricing was reasonable and included everything needed except tiles which I purchased. Felt very comfortable dealing with Joey.
Joey was very quick and did a good job. Unfortunately I needed him to come back and install 2 doors I had ordered wrong. After many repeated texts and excuses he never showed up as promised. I have had to get someone else to finish. Unfortunately I had paid him in full with the promise he would return.
Joey/Unique Designz helped out with a kitchen backsplash remove and replace (re-tile) in March 2023. Communication was good and prompt, the quote was on point and the job timing matched Joey’s estimate. Finished project looks really nice. Thanks Unique Designz. Will reach out again for future projects.
I hired Joey Bernard to remove a deck, modify a fence, install a set of stairs and replace a sill plate and rim joist that had rotted due to an improper installation of the deck. I was assured that the job would take at most a week to complete and sure enough he arrived on the first day he said he would (though well into the afternoon) and completely removed the deck by the end of the day. It took us weeks of calling and texting to get him to actually come back to finish the job all while the siding was still off my house. I received a myriad excuses ranging from reasonable to straining the imagination as to why he hadn't come back to finish. That in and of itself wouldn't have been so bad but rarely did he actually contact us to say that he wouldn't be arriving. He did eventually come and complete the job and frankly I wouldn't have bothered writing this review but I keep finding things about the job that were done lazily and carelessly.
I've already had to rebuild the stairs he built because he used smooth shank brite nails in pressure treated lumber outdoors so they almost immediately rusted and came loose making the stairs a hazard. Furthermore, inspection of the repair to the rim joist and sill plate revealed that the new sill plate wasn't installed fully flush to the still good remains of the old one (as much as a 2" gap in some places) and of the 6 floor joists the rim joist was attached to, only 2 actually had nails into them. The remaining joists just have free-floating nails next to the joists...this is just more work I'll have to redo.
Frankly it's a lesson learned for me on contracts and when not to pay significant deposits but hopefully this can serve as a cautionary tale for others.
We hired Joey Bernard and his colleague, Paul for our home renovations. During the initial stage, they were both persistent and promised us to finish our project within weeks. We signed off and paid the first instalment in March. This is July and our home has been completely abandoned. First off, there have been so many excuses from accidents to personal matters and this has completely held off our project. After months of abscondment, Joey was meant to resume yesterday and said he was at the hospital for X-rays again. He mentioned that there are unforeseen expenses- we asked him to come for a conversation and he hasn’t shown up. As for his colleague, Paul, he has not shown up once since this project started. He has been completely MIA. I sent a message letting him know that we are expecting and needed to complete the project before baby arrives- but no remorse or response at all. At this point, I think we fell into the hands of a bad contractor. We are at a juncture where we are speaking to our lawyer and reporting this business and also having us contract another person. Also, we have been told to report him to BBB and Consumer Protection Bureau/ and our city center. We are on that!
We were able to sort things out with Joey. He apologized for the miscommunication, and we did too. He was also able to complete the kitchen for us before the baby arrived. It’s been a year now and we still get compliments on how our kitchen looks modern and lovely. We also hired him to do some other major work around the house which he did excellently and in no time.
Had my deck done. Left a seam down the Centre. Never offset the seams. Most of the posts were split and he never removed any of the tags that were stapled on the end. The railing was also spot in. He must have got a good deal on second hand lumber. Had to call home back to replace some of the posts but they weren’t any good either.
Would certainly not recommend this builder to anyone. Very poor job.
