Torontonian Flooring did an excellent job on our floor and stairs and I am very happy with the execution of the renovation. A bit of background on our project: My house is a 100 year old semi in East Toronto with the typical unlevel floors that come with it, not to mention old and dingy carpet. We renovated our upstairs bathroom last year, but because the rest of the upstairs was not level we were left with a large gap between the new bathroom and the existing floor. We basically had a small ramp going into the new bathroom, which you can see in the before photos. I did not think that we would be able to put in hardwood without a major and very expensive renovation.
I had contacted some other installers but I wasn’t confident in their ability to fix the levelling problem. I contacted Mike after reading the excellent reviews on Homestars, and he was amazing to work with. He has a lot of experience with older homes, and he was very professional and patient. Mike came over 5 times before the installation to discuss the project and choose materials. I had a flooring sample that I liked, and he was able to find a perfect colour match. The stairs going to the main floor were in bad shape, and needed a lot of work both cosmetically and structurally too.
I am so happy with the finished project, it feels like a whole new house. I am extremely impressed with how level the new floor is with the renovated bathroom, you can see the before and after pictures to show how dramatic the improvement is. We had areas in the hallway that were sagging and very noisy, and now they are level, very solid, and so quiet!
The new floor looks great but also feels great under my feet. My home is also a much healthier place now that all the old carpet is gone. I also had Mike install handrails on the stairs, and they match the new floor perfectly. His team was very professional during the installation, and they did a great job cleaning up the site. Mike also made some extra floor mats for me with the leftover carpet runner, which was so nice. Please note when looking at the after photos that I haven't put the baseboards back on yet!
I would definitely recommend Torontonian Flooring, and I will hopefully have them back to do my main floor and basement within the next year.
