    Default Home Renovations?

    If you were going to do a significant addition who would you call? It would be an entrance to the basement plus a two storey addition so not just a handyman but someone who does this for a living!

    Thanks!

    Duo Building.

    They're not going to be your cheapest quote, but they know what they're doing and will do a good job.

    Check out their website, they've done some major house renos.

    There are lots of great suggestions! Get a few quotes and you will surprised at the different ideas they all come up with. We have really liked Covenant Construction.

    Totally! We're in the process of this right now and it's amazing the ideas that have been offered - stuff we never considered!

    Ewog, Broadco and Old Castle are who we're thinking of.

    We did our whole home reno with Brodco. He was fantastic. All his trades were very professional. Our reno was a large one and it took about 9 months. That was expected. It included a small addition as well.
    We had our main bath done by Duo in our old house and they were great as well. We had planned to use them for our latest large reno but he was more than double the price (well into a couple hundred thousand).

    Feel free to pm me for info.

    Do you have drawings/plans done already? I can suggest a contractor but he doesn't design, just build.

    Realize this is an old thread but we did our Reno through Old Castle and were VERY happy. They worked on a super fast time frame because I didn't want to live in a construction zone for 4 months. They did my main floor and kitchen and were done in just over 3 weeks (minus the granite counter which there's always a lag in because it's cut after the cabinetry goes in).
