Orca renovations is a one man show. Prices were similar to other quotes for the same job but, other contractors included all materials in, Orca's prices were customer suplied and there seemed to little idea of what would be required for the job in advance. I made many runs to the hardware for "things" at the last minute. MAKE sure you contract outlines word for word what you want with this company including days and hours when they will be working. Be prepared for half days and an hour here and there. These company is messy! Tile dust all over the house for weeks. I had to replace plumbing because they cleaned their tools on my new granite counter top and bathroom sink. I removed no less than three pounds of grout from the trap. If the plumbing they did hadn't leaked, who knows what that would have cost me in a plumber. Did I mention the water leak that caused the new dining room ceiling to turn to mud.
Yes Orca tore out the new tile in the new shower and fixed their leak, they did repair the ceiling in the dining room and repainted, they did cash the cheque the day it was handed to them and left me feeling like I got second rate work done at cadillac prices. The promised three to five day job took three weeks and was dirty hell the whole time. In order of compensation for the brutal job they did I was offered a bottle of "booze". I spent hours repairing the damage that was done after they left. They earned $350/hr for the time they spent here (before repairs) and my time is worth a bottle of booze? Unless it is a straight tile job I can't recomend this company.
As an addition to my first post I would like to add that ORCS 's repair, the one he claims to have dealt with fairly in his retort failed again after the review was written. Because of the negative review, Luc Villenueve refused to deal with the problem and I had to hire another contractor to come in to fix his improper bathtub installation which cost me an additional $2900 and another flood in my dining room. Upon trying to reach ORCA renovation for several months it was discovered while serving papers at his stated business address that he was no longer there but had fled to Victoria B.C without leaving a forwarding address. I know I will never see my money but I am glad ORCA is no longer working in the National Capital area.
