During the renovation of my forty year old kitchen, the owner of Upfront Renovations Inc. (Marlon Galea) displayed the patience, skill and wisdom of Job. The COVID pandemic and restrictions presented added challenges to the time involved in the manufacture and installation of new kitchen cabinets and an island; the custom built counter top; the re-wiring for the ceiling pot lights and accent lighting under the cabinets; additional power outlets; and the upgrading of the electrical panel that is now up to code. Despite the added challenges presented by COVID restrictions, Marlon Galea was diligent in co-ordinating the various sub-contractors required to ensure the kitchen was completed to a highly professional standard. This included the meticulous installation of backsplash tiles, drywall patching and re-painting.
It took me decades to finally commit to having my kitchen renovated. Fortunately, when I decided to proceed I chose Upfront Renovations Inc. I am exceedingly pleased with the esthetic and functional outcome of my kitchen renovation. I am grateful to Marlon Galea for his perseverance in completing the kitchen project to such a high standard and for his choice of skilled professionals. You transformed my kitchen into a showpiece. Thank you.
My husband and I hired up front renovations to complete our very first home reno and we could not be more pleased. Our Bathroom turned out exactly the way I envisioned it. With our initial success using Up Front we immediately engaged Marlon yet again to tackle our Kitchen reno as well.
Marlon has been patient and understanding in guiding us through the renovation process and answering our many questions. He is always available for a "quick chat" and honestly made us feel as though we were part of the team - not just the client.
Tony's attention to detail is spot-on and he was able to deal with minor difficulties quickly while maintaining the project timeline to our satisfaction. He has an obvious passion for the work and it shows in the quality of the final result.
Overall we found the entire team professional and personable - a joy to work with. I would highly recommend Up Front Renovations for your next project.... I know they'll be working on mine.
This is the third Reno I've had done by Marlon and his team. One was a full condo Reno for handicapped accessibility. The second to repair much damage done by our handicapped person, and prepare that home for sale. This, the third, to redo a full new kitchen, and two bathrooms. This last one ran into problems that needed correcting from the roof down through two floors, from the original construction.
Marlon babysat that correction that involved a third contractor until it was right. He went way beyond what we contracted for.
If And when I need another renovation done, I will definitely wait for Marlon to do it.
I am available to answer any questions.
Thank you for your kind words June! It is our greatest pleasure to assist you in all of your renovations. When we take on a project, we will do whatever it takes to do it right and fix any issues along the way. We are very happy to hear that you are pleased with the result of the renovation and our services.
I have to say that Up Front Renovations are the most professional, competent, knowledgeable contractors that I have ever dealt with! Their attention to detail is amazing! They did everything that I asked as well as it could be done. They did the job from start to finish without any interruptions. They corrected problems that the casual observer would never have noticed. For example, some of the new ceiling lights were not lined up perfectly by the electrician. Tony took the time to line them up properly even though they were only out by less than an inch.
They ran into a few challenges but instead of wailing about how much more work it would require, they simply got on with the job and did it right.
I spent a good part of my career selling home improvements, and I have had to deal with a lot of sub standard contractors. Marlon, Tony and Alex are head and shoulders far above almost every contractor who I have dealt with. In fact there is no comparison!
I would also like to say that their pricing was fair, in fact it was a bargain considering the quality of their work!
Marlon and his crew will be back when we need more work done. That is probably the best endorsement that I can offer.
