Basement & Main Floor Reonovation

Purple Properties was an absolute pleasure to work with. They take all the stress out of a home renovation because they truly manage the whole project including from start to finish. They have a whole host of sub-contractors they work with and all of that is managed by them. We did 2 projects with them including our basement, 2 bathrooms, and moving our laundry from the basement to the second floor. Everything was flawless and is absolutely beautiful work. I have recommended them to many friends and will continue to do so.

I have seen too many friends and neighbors go through horrible renovations where they are chasing around contractors and this does not happen with Purple Properties.

If you're looking for great work, low stress, and a great relationship, I would highly recommend Purple.

Snowball Effect: 1 Basement, 2 Bathrooms & 1 Powder Room become so much more...

I wanted to take a little time to catch my breath before writing this really long review.

In retrospect, without Rowan and his wonderful team of incredibly dedicated professionals I am sure that both myself and my husband would have lost our minds!

Several years after purchasing a "flipped reno" old house the time came to bite the bullet and tackle (1) a ridiculous second floor main bathroom (inpractical design with cracked tiles sitting about 2 inches higher than the rest of the flooring); (2) transform a main floor closet into a much needed powder room; and (3) deal with a moving basement floor and an old basement bath.

After an unpleasant experience with a "reputable" company that completed one exterior project on our home but not the project we had wanted them to do, I set up again to carefully carry out my due diligence and select a company to partner with for our interior renovation project. I read hundreds of HomeStars reviews & my husband and I have interviewed 5 companies with above 98% ratings on HomeStars from many hundreds of customers.

After meeting Jordan from Purple Properties, he striked us as representing the right company for us. Jordan was as patient as he was knowledgeable. During our interaction, Jordan impressed with his insight and willingness to push back on every not-so-reasonable ideas I came up with that would have significantly (and unnecesarily) increased the cost and complexity of the work to be completed. He did not over promise and, when in doubt, explained that Rowan and us will go over all our renovation goals before finalizing the scope of the project and deciding to move ahead. We got a very detailed estimate and timeline of the job and set-up a meeting with Rowan. He was perfectly punctual and we spent a good amount of time going over all the details of the project, estimated completion timeline, and the potential unknowns that might increase costs and/or add to the timeline.

We felt confident that Purple Properties was the right company to complete our project. When our relatively extensive but well-defined project became a monster job, Purple Properties was the right company to fix every crazy curve ball our old house threw at all of us.

Initially, we planned for a 2-step project. Project 1: replace the basement staircase, replace the basement floors, insulate the basement walls on 2 sides, renovate the basement bath and add a powder room on the main floor. Project 2: renovate second floor bath.

Project 1 (starting a couple of days ahead of time):
- Once the basement floor was removed, we learned our old house had 2 different levels of concrete with one level about 1.5 inches lower than the other and roting plywood making up the difference.
- Once the main stack was uncovered, we learned that it was a crumbling cast iron, the piping connectingto the city sewer was clay, and the water line from the city into the house was led.

Project 1 became:
dig out the basement floor to change the main stack from the basement ceiling all the way to the end of the house, redesign the bathroom to allow for the led pipe to be replaced during the summer, pour concrete to level up the basement floor, change all the windows, and only then complete the initial plan to replace basement staircase, replace basement floors, insulate walls on 2 sides, renovate basement bath and add a powder room on the main floor.

Since the main stack turned out to be old & rusty iron we had to rethink our renovation. A new project had to be added before Project 2 could be completed. The scope of Project 3 was to replace the main stack in it's entirety so that we have the peace of mind that we will not wake up one morning to find a flooded basment. To accomplish this project; however, we had to effectively remove our kitchen cabinets as the main stack was positioned such that we could not get to it any other way. This meant having to remodel the kitchen. In a completely open concept home, remodeling the kitchen meant having to replace the flooring on the entire main level. In our case, this also meant, redoing the old staircase going up to the second floor, getting rid of the old non-functional fireplace, and getting rid of a small vestibule serving little to no purpose. Wow! So we snowballed into...

Project 3: replace the main stack, remodel the kitchen, replace the main floor flooring, refinish the staircase to the second floor, remove the fireplace, remove the tiny vestibule, add a functional floor-to-ceiling cabinet for coats and shoes, replace 2 windows, create a seamless transition between the kitchen and the back of our home!
Project 2: unchanged!

By this time, our crazy house drove me crazy!

The one person who made it all bearable, time and again was Rowan. He identified the issues early and came up with solutions every time. He put up with my freaking out and was willing to work around gutting our main floor. In the end, we decided to do things the right way and opted to add Project 3 to our to-do-list even though this was the last thing we had planned for.

Rowan's basement demolition team lead by Edgar was incredible. They worked fast and carefully. They were incredibly attentive and quiet. They went above and beyond to fix the many quirks of our 100+ year old house. They made it possible for us to work from home while they effectively rebuilt our basement. Edgar's taste in music is awesome!

Once Edgar's team completed their part of the renovation, Amadeu and his team took over. I cannot express how amazing every single person working on fixing our home has been.

This post is already a novel so I will not describe the number of crazy other quirks that got uncovered or how we ended going down to the studs on our entire main floor! Suffice it to say that Leo, our expert plumber had to solve one complex challenge after another and Amadeu had to keep fixing and refixing and he was incredible. Also, Amadeu's taste in music is so much fun!

And now one would think all my review is done! But wait, there is more!

Project 4 came to be since the planned but not done exterior of our home project actually had to be done. Rowan came to our rescue yet again. He asked Bogdan, a masonry specialist, to address our unstable home extension. Bogdan removed the hollow and shifting cinder blocks holding up our back-of-the house extension and redid the extension foundation the right way. He also build beautiful steps at the back of our home and out of our basement. He completed this extensive job in two weeks including one day when he worked through the pouring rain.

Rowan and we went shopping for materials, met with the kitchen cabinet maker, and repeatedly put our heads together to design and complete a project that ended up taking 9 months of extremely hard work to complete. Rowan oversaw every detail of every job and never let something be done if it was not done right. When something was not quite right, he had it be righted before we even realized it.

This was a runaway project that went well beyond anything we could have imagined, yet Purple Properties is the one company I could trust to tackle issues without cutting corners. Not only did they fix everything the right way, but they made it possible for us to work from home during such an extensive and crazy renovation. I am a customer with pretty high standards and Rowan, Edgar, Amadeu, Bodgan, Leo, and every crew member met all the challenges of our renovation with grace, professionalism, and incredible dedication. We are so grateful to have a home we love because of their hard work and high standards.

When we will be ready to update the remainder of our second floor and landscape our garden, I know Rowan and his team will be here on time and will do an amazing job.

Thank you for your detailed review. Your review helps us to know how we can improve and what we are doing right. It also lets future clients know what to expect, this at times may include nasty surprises of the unexpected that is hidden behind the walls. We hope all things go according to plan but especially when dealing with older homes this is not always the case.
Our first priority is the condition and quality of the structure. Without a solid foundation any work done will either not come out right or will not stand the test of time. Fortunately Rowan and Jordan (our in house designers) have a strong construction knowledge to backup their design ideas. This ensures designs remain beautiful and functional. For any complexity during construction Amadeu has years of experience. He makes sure to take the time to do things correctly from the beginning. This way future problems are avoided, everything is safe, secure as well as up to code. You and your family can feel safe never worrying about future flooding or faulty electrical or bad workmanship.
Everyday we strive for excellence from design, controlled demolition, solving unique issues, materials, our work crew, the specialized trades, and all the gorgeous finishes.
We loved working with you. We appreciate your endurance and composure as well as the trust you placed in us. We would be proud to be contacted again for future projects.

Full Renovation

I used Purple Properties to complete a full renovation of my house. I was very happy with the process and final results. The shopping days months in advance helped to visualize the design and keep the project on track. There were some delays due to the unexpected but communication was good and the Team worked extra hours to try to make up. Overall I feel comfortable giving a very strong recommendation of this company.

Beyond expectations

Purple Properties exceeded all our expectations. Not only did Rowan and the team do an exceptional job on our home renovations but everyone was a pleasure to work with. Rowan, our project manager, not only provided guidance when we needed it but he efficiently solved every surprise we encountered along the way. He was quick to respond to phone and text messages when we had questions and he frequently dropped by the house to make sure everything was going according to plan. Every aspect of the work done was impeccable and at the end of each day the work area was cleaned and all tools and materials organized so as to provide the minimum disruption to our household. The timeline for completion of the project was almost as estimated (5 weeks) and it only went beyond the estimate because we added to the job as work progressed (total job took 6 weeks). As the various aspects of the renovation evolved we were provided with a regular written accounting of costs for work done, estimates of costs of work still to be done, and a running total of amounts paid. The various workers were very professional, if we were told they would be at our house at a certain time they were. If they said they would be finished for the day by a certain time they were. They worked hard, fast, and efficiently. Each and everyone of them were always considerate of us and we felt that they genuinely wanted us to have a positive experience.

We have a number of projects in mind for the future and would not consider anyone but Purple Properties to do them. Very highly recommended.

Condo renovation

I contacted Purple Properties in March 2021 for a condo renovation. Jordan came and went through everything I asked for, discussed options and then I was emailed a quote a couple of days later. We agreed to a schedule with work starting in June and lasting 6 weeks. Rowan took me on a shopping day before then where we picked all remaining finishes and fixtures (no small feat during COVID lockdowns). Work was done on time and in budget and I love the outcome. Communication was excellent throughout and I would definitely use them again.

Condo Unit Renovation

My condo is over 20 years old so my unit was in dire need of updating. I had started planning it when COVID derailed my timeline but that delay offered me a lot of time to do some planning in advance. The entire process terrified me given all of the horror stories one hears about bad contractors. When I met Jordan for the quote to remodel my kitchen, replace my flooring, and other small changes, I was still apprehensive but he definitely made me feel at ease. There was no pressure and I was never made to feel that my project was too small to be worth their time (600ft2 unit). When I finally signed on and was passed over to Rowan to handle things, he made everything so easy for me which was greatly appreciated given how much I stressed myself out about it. He gave me realistic times lines and costs and kept me updated every step of the way. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

Condo reno

We picked Purple Properties over multiple companies due to their detailed quote and professionalism. We were not disappointed. Purple Properties completed a makeover of our condo- new kitchen, 2 bathrooms, lighting, all doors and painting the entire unit. I was quite nervous about it but Rowan (and everyone in his team) was calm and professional throughout the project. Any concerns along the way were met with a positive attitude and solutions were quick. The workmanship is impeccable. Everything is stunning. In order to get the full effect of the work I have posted before and after pictures. Highly recommended.
Thank you, Rowan and team.

Kitchen Reno, Main floor reno

Simply the best contractor I have ever hired. On time, professional, accountable, trustworthy the list goes on. There is no way to do a project of this magnitude without running into a few issues along the way. We solved them without any worries.

Work quality is top notch. When something was slightly off, they fixed it. I would have to say without question, a 10 out of 10.

Bathroom Renovation

I am thrilled with the result of the bathroom renovation that the team from Purple Properties did for me. The bathroom space is not very big but with the creative suggestion of a corner entrance, the team was able to accomodate a good sized shower, a full tub and generous vanity next to a large heated towel rack. The room feels light and spacious.

I was looking for something a bit different in colour palette, integrating the blue tiles rather than the often chosen muted greys and creams. I appreciated the quality vendor shopping trip and contactor savings passed on to me. I received constant consultation around the style I was trying to achieve and the great suggestion of carrying over the blue tile to the tub area really pulled the room together.

I visited the site often, asked many questions and observed the quality of the workmanship in progress. The bathroom is not only beautiful but solidly and expertly built, adding to the value of my home.

I highly recommend Purple Properties if you want courteous, communicative professionals who take pride in their work.

Thanks, your team did such a great job!
