We are extremely happy with the work that Otto's Masonry did on our front steps. Our old concrete steps were sinking and uneven. Otto's staff assessed the job and gave us a quote. They started the job ahead of our expected timeline which was great. Their staff were pleasant and on time everyday. They removed our old steps and hand dug a 4 foot hole to pour a concrete foundation which was reinforced by concrete blocks. Then built new forms to pour our new concrete steps. They staff are hard working masons that take pride in their work and pay attention to detail. We highly recommend Otto's Masonry!

We hired Ashton Renovations in the spring of 2015 to do a complete renovation of our main bathroom in our 80 year old house. We met with Mark a couple of times before work began to have him assess our needs and present a design. Mark and his team promptly began work in May, 2015. Mark's team installed tarps to telescopic poles located outside our bathroom threshold and tarped our entire staircase and front hall to protect our flooring from any damage. The demolition team was efficient and completed their work within 2 days and hauled the debris away. We had discussed our concerns about having a refuse bin parked in our driveway (as we have a shared driveway and this would inconvenience our neighbours). Mark agreed to work around that and the demo team filled their truck with the debris instead. The demo team left our house clean and tidy. Going into this project, we knew that we would have to take the room right down to the exterior walls as there was not insulation installed when the house was constructed. Mark stepped us through the whole process and he was very responsive to our questions that arose during construction. Using Mark's expertise and contacts with the suppliers provided us with great comfort that the job was progressing well. The contact at TAPs helped up to select the correct fixtures for our space and we are extremely satisfied with the quality of the products and the installation of the fixtures. We did run into an issue when the tile we had selected was not available but we had secondary choices that worked well and we are very happy with the end result of our bathroom. It is the most solid room in our house with new studs, insulation, drywall and tiling. Our cast iron radiator was moved to a better position to allow us to have a slightly larger vanity. The appropriate HVAC specialist was used to move the pipes and install a new rad. Mark was very easy to work with and accommodated our needs. Renovation is no easy process. It can take longer than expected and there are always a few bumps along the way, but we are extremely happy with Ashton Renovations and the workmanship they provided. We completely love our new bathroom. We will definitely contact Mark for our next renovation for our kitchen.
