Our semi-detached house was built in 1913 and a 3-story detached extension was added 40 years ago, so the place was badly in need of a complete overhaul. The first company’s quote came in very high so we kept looking. A large home in the area was being renovated and it looked amazing. That’s how Keith and I found out about Norseman Construction and hired them to renovate our main floor and front porch.
We chose to live in the house during the renovation. It was a bit tricky with all the construction dust and living without a kitchen, but it was very rewarding to come home every day to see the progress, as well as the problems. Repairs and renos from previous owners had disastrous results like rotted joists in the basement from a slow leak due to nailing through the roof liner. Under the main floor wood beam ceiling was a tile ceiling and under that was a lath and plaster ceiling.
Thankfully the project manager Greg, and construction supervisor Andrei are highly skilled, hard working and know how to do things right. Really nice guys by the way, and very helpful by steering us away from bad design choices. Greg suggested we go with tile in the kitchen rather than hardwood throughout that I had asked for – I realize now what a mistake that would have been! Greg, Andrei and their team transformed our dark and dingy home into a modern, sleek and light filled space. The front porch is no longer an embarrassment and the main floor is now a wow. Our friends and family can't believe it's the same place! We could not be happier with the results and would definitely recommend Norseman Construction to others. Our only regret is that we didn’t renovate the 2nd floor at the same time!
