I had a vintage upright piano that I wanted junked. I called James at Piano Inside on Tuesday and removal took place on Saturday. When James and crew arrived they put drop cloths down and were very careful about not damaging the walls. Their system for the piano removal was so efficient, the piano was on their truck within 20 minutes. The crew were excellent at their job, and James was a wonderful person to work with. I would highly recommend Piano Inside to anyone who wanted a perfect piano removal.

I needed my old sliding door replaced, as it was not efficient. I ordered a new sliding door with in-window mini blinds. The installers arrived on time on Thursday. When they removed the old door, they discovered that the old door had been improperly installed - there was no header on the door. They built a header for the new door at no extra charge to me. The installers worked efficiently, were polite and the area was clean after installation. After they left for the day, I realized that the mini-blinds on the moveable panel were defective. I called the project manager, Pat, who came over to my home the next day and arranged to have the panel repaired or replaced. Despite the malfunction of the blind, I'm happy with the door and would recommend Dayside.

As part of the Enbridge Home Winterproofing Initiative I had all my exterior walls insulated with pour foam insulation, the windows caulked and my attic was topped up with blow-in insulation. The project took 2 days to complete. On day 1, the wall insulation was applied. I had to leave the home for several hours, with my pet, while the work was done. The 2nd day was the attic insulation. My pet and I stayed in the basement for a couple of hours while the work was done. The post-work recovery was labour intensive. All the exterior walls were drilled, then plastered over so there was a grid of holes on each of these walls. Thankfully I had the help of a friend to sand 4 rooms. We used a sanding attachment on the shop vac which didn't cause any more dust. We've been painting the rooms as quickly as possible. Only 1 wall is left to do. Moving all the furniture was a pain literally, but in spite of all the work we had to do: sanding, vacuuming, priming and painting, it was well worth it. The furnace does not come on as often which should be reflected in my next Enbridge bill. I forgot to mention that I was also given 7 watt lightbulbs for all of my fixtures as well. My refrigerator was already energy star rated so that was not replaced. The crews were adept at their jobs and left my home as clean as possible. Even though, I initially felt disheartened by all the work ahead of me, I'm glad I took advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

Hi Marlene,

It's always great to hear about successful projects! Though it can involve some work, the comfort of your home and energy efficiency will, no doubt, be much improved.

Please be sure to pass the information about the Winterproofing program along to others in your community you think might also be able to benefit.

Thanks for sharing your experience!

Kind regards,

When I called A&V Drain about a possible crack(s) in my foundation, Andriy arrived quickly, assessed the problem, then completely explained the whole process to me from excavation to finishing. He was sincere and honest. They arrived on time each day, protected my property from damage and removed a small deck and stairs before starting the project. They worked conscientiously, explained any issues along the way and even had a custom window well made, as my deck stairway would have blocked a larger-sized window well (I was not charged extra for the custom-made well). After the job was completed, they cleaned the area completely, replanted a small tree and reattached my deck and stairs. You would never know that I had my side foundation dug out, as it was so tidy. All in all top level workmanship, courtesy and respect. I would certainly hire them for any future plumbing issues which may arise and I most assuredly recommend A&V Drain if you want a job well done at a fair and honest price. Thank you for all your hard work!

Shout out to Handyman Connection: I needed an electrician to fix plugs that weren't working. Turns out the insurance company's electrician just jury-rigged broken mainline wires to make the plugs work. The electrician sent by Handyman Connection saw what had been done and fixed the problem correctly. It was great to call 1 number and get a good electrician instead of calling 3 or 4 individuals for quotes etc. and not knowing if you're getting a good worker or poor one. This company is worth it and I definitely will use them in the future. Thanks to Dimitri for being on time, problem solved the issue quickly and fixed it perfectly!

I had flashing hanging in front of my front door on a Friday. I called Mr Roof Repair and Adam arrived on Monday morning. They assessed the problem, offered a solution and then checked my roof for a full assessment. Not only did they fix the fallen flashing with new screws, they went around the whole house and secured all my flashings. Plus a small opening was noted around my chimney flashing and that was filled in. Adam and team were friendly, polite and did a great job. I would highly recommend Mr Roof Repair to friends.

Thanks, Marlene…a piece of hanging flashing is not only unsightly, but could be a danger in a wind storm. We take issues like yours very seriously and although we certainly weren’t required to, tightening up the other flashings as a precautionary is just something we feel is important for both your safety and your peace of mind. Thank you for your kind words, I’m sure Adam will be thrilled to hear his years of etiquette classes are being noticed!

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

The crew came early and dug out the soil and removed other items, as requested. Unlike other companies, the guys asked me a few times if what they were doing was correct and enough. They were great! I will be calling you back in the fall to remove more clay from another part of the garden that is currently inaccessible. I would most certainly recommend Just Junk to friends!

After the July flood, my solid maple chest of drawers, solid maple liquor cabinet and sold oak desk were ruined. These pieces dated from the 1930s and 1940s. I called Angelo's and he came out the same day to give me an estimate. When the furniture was to be picked up he covered the cost. Based on the original stain of the pieces I chose new stains, with his help. Cost of delivery was also free of charge and the movers placed the pieces where I wanted them. The refinishing was exquisite. They look brand new. The desk, which had deep carving in the top was mark-free. I would highly recommend Angelo's Furniture refinishing without a doubt. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, prompt and highly skilled at his craft.

I spoke with Florian regarding my project and was told the doors would be installed in about 3 weeks and the screen door approx. 3 weeks after that. When the crew arrived, on time, they worked very hard, as the side door inside moulding had difficult fitting issues. They worked quickly and when finished, they cleaned up everything perfectly. A few days after installation, a friend pointed out that the deadbolt was not locking properly (a piece of wood was left inside the slot for the lock) and the moulding on the right side of the door had been finished in what I thought was an unprofessional manner. I called Florian about these issues and he said they would be fixed when the screen door was installed. Today the screen door arrived. After it was installed I explained the issue with the lock and then showed the workman the problem with the moulding. He immediately came up with a great solution for that, and now it looks as it should. I initially was disappointed with the way the interior had been finished but now I am satisfied. Florian was very understanding and patient with my complaints and the after service was very good. I was also told that if any problems come up at any time, just call and they'll be fixed. I would recommend Bella Vista Windows and Doors to others.

Derek and his crew arrived right on time Saturday morning. They worked quickly and efficiently removing deadwood and elevating a 45- year-old Catalpa, elevating a Hackberry tree and removing deadwood from a small maple tree. For no extra charge they also thinned my Hackberry. All debris was swept up and bagged. I am very pleased with how my trees look, and I'm sure they will be healthier as well. I would definitely recommend Derek's Tree Service!
