Kitchen Reno

Mark and his crew were a good group to have working in our home. Receptive to new ideas and questions about what needed to be done. They were on track to meet deadlines for completion of their project. They returned to do follow up work after the kitchen cabinets were installed and worked right up to Christmas Eve to get us a working Kitchen for Christmas Day.

Bathroom renovation

Mark and his crew were able to complete the job in a professional and timely manner. We didn't have to wait months for this renovation to be completed, as Mark set dates when they would be arriving and when they would be completed. We had organized that all the items would be available to be installed. We did a walk-in shower and added an additional small Towel Cabinet! This really helped out with storage as we reside in a CONDO!

Mark actually did more than what was specified by removing all the old drywall. We gained another 10 inches in the ceiling height as well! This made a big difference for my wife and I as we are above the average height. See the photo! They installed electrical flooring heating as well which my wife loves on those cold mornings!

We are quite pleased by the whole experience.

Major home renovation

Mark did a full renovation on my first floor which included removal of interior walls, installation of a load support beam, refacing of a fireplace, flooring, kitchen, pot lights, miscellaneous electrical, construction of new entrance vestibule and a new 2-piece bathroom. Along the way, he was able to repair a 2nd floor joist at minimal extra cost to me and then also stayed beyond the finish date of the original renovation to re-do my second floor bathroom when we found that the floor underneath the bathtub was rotted through. I recommend The Art of Renovation for any home renovation project you are considering.

Up dating our Bathroom with Wheel chair access

As a senior you wonder if somebody is going to take your money and run! Well Mark is a most honourable gentleman. We gave the deposit and he confirmed the starting date. Not a minute late for the starting the work. The team of professionals worker were there. The initial tear-out of the old Bathroom was more than what they or I expected. They had to remove everything including every piece of old drywall even from the ceiling. Needless to state, a very dirty job, but remarkably there was no dust or debris in the rest of our CONDO. They had put up an airtight seal around the door, so that all material was brought in through the back patio door. No mess inside our other rooms. That was a great, and it just got better from there.

The workmanship and details were well thought out, as I mentioned they were not planning on ripping everything out even the door to the bathroom had to be widen from 24 inches to 36 inches, so a lot of cutting, moving and relocating electrical wiring, vents, in-floor heating as well. Along with the reconstruction needed to be accomplished was done within the dates specified. If you saw the old bathroom with a 7 foot ceiling, poor lighting, low sink with a small cabinet, bathtub, etc. you would never believe it was possible for Mark to make such a wonderful change.

Now the new sink cabinet is high with pull out draws giving us a lot of space, yes he was even able to put a second cabinet beside our modern walk in shower to store towels! We don't have to have them in another linen cabinet elsewhere in the condo!

The new fold down seat in the shower is fantastic which can be lowered easily to sit on, or lifted up out of the way. Mark installed a built in the wall Stainless Steel NOCK to hold shampoo/conditioner/soap, and it is soon modern looking and extremely practical and useful. We no longer have to bend down to reach the items or hit our heads on the dam hanging holders! Nice with clean lines. The new controls for the shower are so wonderful and easy to adjust the temperature, Hans Groeher top end product at the right height as well. We no longer have to bend down to turn on the water or get sprayed in the back of the head by that cold water anymore. Just set the temperature wait a minute and go in!

Fully functional and extremely accessible with the most modern of features. All our friends just love to see it! They can look, but please use the guest bathroom!

Way to go Mark thank you for also helping us with obtaining the Government Grant, that really helped us out as well.

Hardwood Floors & Trim

We are very pleased with the job done on our 2nd floor and have already asked Mark to quote on our next project - the stairs.
Communication is of prime importance to us and Mark passed with flying colours. We appreciated that he spent a good amount of time with us to understand our requirements and once the job started he kept us informed every step of the way. As minor issues arose (unstable builder-grade doorframes) Mark provided options and solid recommendations to help us make informed decisions.
Work started and finished within the agreed upon timeframe.
Some smaller jobs were completed as a courtesy while the crew was here. This was a very nice touch!
Mark and team were professional, courteous and considerate of our needs and preferences while in our home; very accommodating and easy to work with.
Overall a good renovation experience!

Bathroom Renovation

We worked with Mark on a master bath reno - resealing & extending shower, installing new tile, new shower head, new ceiling fan, installation of vanity, and removal of a privacy wall. We had most of the design work planned out in advance.

The work was completed on a timely basis and in good detail. We're in the process of repairing some small details (nail pops etc. that resulted from regular shifts after painting) and Mark has been very accommodating & willing to fix these small repairs. Pleased with overall result and would recommend Mark to those looking for bathroom renos.

Kitchen Cupboard Refinishing

I Had Mark Nazar and his company the Art of Renovation out to my home to refinish my kitchen cabinets. I have to say that I really enjoyed their professionalism and attention to detail. Mark and his team were reasonably priced and a real pleasure to deal with.
