New Deck

We needed a new backyard deck after 18 years. My family absolutely loves the finished product. A big thank you to Tobie and Vic for all your help. From the professional design, the quality materials and the top-notch workmanship, everything looks great!
Thank you for your recommendations and guidance throughout the process. They also came in on budget and never tried to upsell.
Very reliable, honest and they know their business. Vic and his crew cleaned up before leaving every day. it really shows how proud they are.
We would highly recommend Killam & Wylde.

Kitchen Renovation

As someone who loves to spend time entertaining and creating in the kitchen, I need a kitchen that flows and has plenty of storage. When I bought my home, the kitchen was beautiful and modern with gorgeous granite and top of the line appliances. Unfortunately, it had a poor design and was very awkward to work in. After a few years of trying, I decided to bite the bullet and hire someone to rip out the island and replace it with something that was both beautiful AND functional.

After interviewing several contractors, I decided to hire Killam | Wylde.

Tobie and Vic sat with me to discuss how I operate in the kitchen, what was important to me, my timing and my budget and came back with several useful suggestions. After questioning and really listening to what I needed in my kitchen they came up with a wonderful design.

The project was started on time and came in on budget. They were respectful of my home and, keeping in mind that my family and I were living there during the renovation, they left the site tidy at the end of each day. They tackled and resolved any issue that came up in a professional manner.

My kitchen is now a chef’s dream! I have everything where I need it to be, and it has made my time in the kitchen even more enjoyable. Their design integrated with the rest of my home, and my family and I feel like our kitchen has always been this way.

We were so happy with their work that we hired KW to design and build our media room. Once again, they provided excellent service – on time and on budget.

I have no hesitation recommending Tobie & Vic. They are respectful, professional, creative, and resourceful. Best of all, they’re a design and build team that truly listens to their clients.

Entire retail reno

I hired Killam | Wylde to do a design build of new retail space for my business. The space was empty, old and needed a ton of work. K W took on the entire project. They designed and built custom mill work to house my many bolts of fabric. They revamped the front windows so that I could put out window displays. They were in charge of everything.

They built an office , custom kitchen break room and added a huge staircase so that I could utilize the basement as a clearance centre. They did everything.

Any sub trades that had to be involved were hired and managed by KW.

I also have referred Killam | Wylde to my own clients, with no hesitation.

They are professional, talented, respectful and a whole lot of fun. Yes I said fun.

Primary Bath, powder room and entryway remodel

We hired Killam Wylde to complete a reno of the primary bathroom, powder room and entryway in our 100 year old home and we are absolutely thrilled with the results! The primary bathroom was gutted and completely refinished (new window, tub, vanity, toilet, lighting, etc.). Within the powder room and entry way a new subfloor, tile, lighting and HVAC work were completed, a doorway was increased, and trim was replaced.

All of the finishing and fixtures were sourced by Tobie (Killiam Wylde). Finding items that were stylish and in stock was a challenge in the middle of a pandemic, but Tobie worked with multiple suppliers to find in stock options for us to choose from. Tobie made the process of sourcing and deciding materials/fixtures easy by providing options without overwhelming us. The result of the design is exactly what we wanted. Tobie also communicated with us regularly on status, etc. and the invoice we received was very detailed and accurate.

Vic’s (Killiam Wylde) craftmanship is exceptional. Vic completed the renovation work very promptly and was extremely detail oriented throughout the entire process. Vic was always on time to the job and let me know any challenges that he ran into (while opening walls in our 100 year old house) as well as options and solutions to still work toward our end goal in the space. Vic also went out of his way to do try to match the new trim in our home to our 100 year old trim – this was a feat in and of itself.

Working with Toby and Vic was a great experience. I plan to bring them back for additional work on our home in the future. I would absolutely recommend Killam Wylde to anyone looking for a contractor/designer team without hesitation.

Kitchen, dining, living room renovation.

Tobie designed and Vic crafted a new front end for our house. It moved from a standard isolated kitchen and dining/front room to an open area space. It was an exponential growth in the use of light, space and utility of counters and cupboards. Management of subcontractors was excellent - they know how to schedule and how to get the best competency and value in the sub trades. Unforeseen glitches were handled expeditiously as a matter of course. We have no hesitation in recommending Killam and Wylde for your project.

10 Stars!

10 stars all the way.

Tobie and Vik transform my basement into a liveable nanny suite. Just in time for the baby.

Not only did they come in on time, a rarity in the industry, but they came in at budget.

I can rest more easily knowing that everything is more manageable now that we have our live in nanny suite for our Nanny.

Thank you for reviewing Killam | Wylde. It was great working with you and your wife. It is amazing how a dark, old, short basement can be transformed by underpinning. The custom kitchen and storage areas turned out fantastic. The built ins add so much to the sitting area. It was such a great job and we are so happy you had the trust to allow us to design and build your nanny's quarters. And we are even more thrilled we could help ease some stress at such an important time in your lives. I am sure your nanny loves her space. Looking forward to working together again! Tobie & Vic

Amazing team

Our family have worked with Tobie and Vic on many projects over the past year. They helped us get our house ready to sell and have helped us with design and renovation work on our current house. We couldn't have been more happy than to be introduced to Tobie and Vic. Tobie has done a great job visualizing the project and Vic is truly a master of all with his expertise and skills in renovation work. Further to that, there was never a day that we came home to find a mess. Even in the middle of a project, Vic ensured the job site was put away in a professional/clean manner, (this meant a lot to us). I would 100% use Tobie for her design skills and vision and Vic for his craftsmanship.

Thank you! You and your family are always a pleasure to work with. We are looking forward to your landscaping project starting soon. We aim to help our clients achieve their wants and needs. Your E-Design portion of your project and renderings was a lot of fun for us. There are many ways a client can work with Killam | Wylde. And we are happy to offer a custom design plan with layouts so our clients can just follow the list and get their design portion completed on their own time. Best always, Tobie & Vic.
