Ruth and Joseph are clients who have asked us to renovate their home, one quadrant at a time. We started by converting a bedroom into a luxury main floor bathroom with a stacking laundry team closet. The floor is heated, and there is a sun tunnel bringing daylight into the windowless room. The overall effect is beautiful and efficient, as you can see. The other work included foundation repair, new and larger windows, a new kitchen, master bedroom layout and addition, and living room fireplace. Then we painted.

“We met Philip at the Ottawa Home Show in 2018 and while we had discussions with other companies, he impressed us right away with his knowledge of all aspects of the building trade and his ability to provide advice on design. We initially hired him to turn a bedroom into an additional bathroom in 2018 and because of the excellent result we have gone back to him on several occasions in 2019 and 2020 with other projects in and around the house. Each time we were impressed with the work for a number of reasons:
-the design process is very co-operative with Philip making suggestions to ensure that we got the best information to make an informed decision;
-they hires the best people in the building trade, either directly working for his company or third party contractors;
-they were invariably very good at their jobs while at the same time Philip would supervise them to get the result we wanted;
-when at times things did not work out exactly as initially expected, which is normal when working with a large number of subcontractors and suppliers, Philip would always explain what had happened and ensure that the result was exactly what we had contracted for.
We have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend Philip to anybody who is looking for high quality work for a reasonable price.”
