Our recent bathroom renovation was necessitated by a mysterious leak that emerged in two different places. John Miles very kindly rearranged his schedule to accommodate us so that we would not have to live without our main bathroom for too long. Throughout the planning stage, he was always prompt in getting back to us and quick to offer tips that steered us away from bad decisions. He has an unflappable demeanour that inspires confidence. As for Gabriel, who did all the work, we just couldn't be happier with how he handled the project and we are just amazed at his range of skills, professionalism and all-around niceness. Most importantly, he was extremely patient about detecting the source of the leak—it wasn't easy to find, and for a while the (mistaken) theory was that it was a drain problem, when it was actually a very slow leak from a supply pipe. I shudder to think what would have happened if a less patient person had leapt to the wrong conclusion and tiled over the floor again while the leak remained active.
Gabriel stripped the old bathroom out, fixed the plumbing, did a magnificent job on the tiling, repaired the ceiling, installed the fixtures and the new window—all to a very high standard, with admirable focus and efficiency. I work at home, right next door to the bathroom, and was never disturbed by unnecessary noise.
Unlike other contractors we have worked with, these guys don't stop until they finish the job—and the job they do is nothing short of extraordinary. What could have been a very stressful renovation turned out to be a breeze—we are very relieved to have had Avonlea do the job.
