Men in Kilts was one of the only companies who was comfortable cleaning our high glass awning. It is very high to reach and has unusual access. They came out and did a fantastic job, and were very pleasant to deal with. We will definitely call them back in future.

Fantastic news, we have been at this a long time so when it comes to hard to reach places we usually have a strategy for that!

We needed to replace our kitchen countertops, it we're looking for the cheapest decent option. The rest of our kitchen is very old, but we aren't renovating her entire thing, so needed to replace countertops only at minimal cost. We were concerned that it would be a complicated job since the countertop ran into wall and tile on all sides. Someone came to quite and assured us that they would be able to cut out the old one and slide in a new one wi no or very minimal damage to the walls and backsplash. I was thorough with my questioning since I wanted to make sure they knew what they were doing. He explained their entire process and our options which was great. We decided to go ahead. The installer who showed up to do the job was extremely pessimistic. He told me that he probably woukdnt be able to do the job as discussed and had me thinking that I was going to end up replacing my entire backsplash at additional cost. This was not at all what was discussed and I was very unimpressed. The installer proceeded and would stop before he got to a point of damaging anything. In the end, he was able to remove the old countertop and install the new without any damage, exactly as had been discussed. We are very happy with the product, but would have liked to have had a less stressful install day. I think all of this could have been avoided if the person quoting and the installer had communicated better beforehand so that the installer knew what to expect. In the end we are happy with how they managed a difficult replacement.

Prorise Painting came recommended by a friend. We had recently put up new drywall in the basement, but needed someone to come finish taping, mudding and painting. There were also a few ceiling areas with a popcorn texture that needed to be dealt with. We live in an old house, so there were also plenty of imperfections that needed to be addressed. Joseph came by to view the area and provide a quote. From the beginning, he was very professional to deal with. He did a thorough walkthrough and described in detail how his team would tackle each and every part of the job, answering all questions and concerns along the way. He gave me great confidence that they would do a good job. Pablo came to complete the drywall and painting work - taping, mudding, skimming over popcorn ceilings and other imperfections. We couldn't have been happier with Pablo. He was a lovely guy to have around the house, worked extremely hard, and was consistently checking his work to make sure we were happy along the way. We are very happy with the outcome. Our basement is a huge improvement. We now have a bright, clean, finished space. It was always clear that the priority for Joseph, Pablo, and the whole team at Prorise, is customer satisfaction. They continued to work and touch up their job until we were completely satisfied. All for a very fair price. You couldn't ask for more than that! We would definitely recommend this team!

We contacted Pest Boss as we had been seeing mice in the house intermittently for quite some time. Kyle got back to us very quickly and set up an initial home visit right away. He came out on three separate occasions to assess the situation, lay out traps/bait and block off any access points the mice may have had. He was very friendly and helpful to deal with and we feel confident that we have alleviated the issue. We would definitely recommend him for any pest control issues!

We hired Absolute Insulation to add blown in cellulose to our basement walls and ceiling where there had previously been none. Justin and his team were extremely pleasant to work with. They did a fantastic job, were great to communicate with and cleaned up well once the job was done. They went above and beyond to help resolve any unforeseen issues that came up throughout the process. We would highly recommend them!

We were looking to update some of the wiring in the basement as well as install several new light fixtures and baseboard heaters. John came to provide a quote and they came in at a very good price in comparison to other electricians. We couldn't be happier with the final product or the process. They were exceptional to work with, always showed up on time, very easy to communicate with and did an excellent job. Even when we ran into unforeseen hiccups with the work, they went above and beyond to resolve everything as efficiently as possible. I would highly recommend this team.
