The ideal humidity level is approximately 42%, for both types of flooring.

Harwood is a solid wood product. Engineered wood has a top layer or real wood and other layer combinations of stranded wooded products that are generally more stable than solid wood. Engineered wood is a considered a better candidate for 1st grade installations.

Kitchens and bathrooms are areas that are subject to high humidity and excess moisture. Solid wood flooring are not recomended in those areas. However, in these areas you can go with some types of laminate flooring (with special installation procedures) or engineered hardwood floors. But, even then, proper maintanance is important. Any spillages should be addressed immediately. When cleaning never use a regular wet mop with soap and water.

Yes. Please, talk to the sales represenatative to learn more about the installation methods.

Laminate flooring is versatile, durable, attractive flooring with the appearance of a hardwood floor. Although laminate flooring may look like wood flooring, there is actually no solid wood used in its construction. 
Laminate flooring is much cheaper than traditional hardwood flooring. It can be installed fairly quickly and inexpensively. It is designed to be scratch-resistant and fade resistant, two areas where solid hardwood flooring is known to be more vulnerable. Laminate flooring is perfect for anyone wanting a durable floor for a fraction of the price and installation time of a hardwood floor, but with the attractiveness of real hardwood.

While laminate is more durable, it doesn’t have the same warmth and permanence of hardwood flooring.

Vinyl flooring is best suited to areas that might be likely to have water spills, making it an inexpensive and attractive choice for kitchens and washrooms.

Home Renovations

Our team of experienced professionals can address almost anything that relates to your home. Our skills include drafting architectural blueprints, helping you to obtain permits, budgeting for large scale projects, aiding your finished construction with a touch of Interior Design, as well as taking control of the planning and scheduling aspects of your home renovation.

Yes, having an initial grasp of your budget allows us to design within a context. If we overestimate your budget, time is wasted by proposing something that you cannot afford, while underestimating your budget leads to a proposed project that may not live up to the potential of what could otherwise be made. Our designs and plans are customized for you in accordance with your budget. We have had a lot of success creating a rough estimate of what projects may cost before construction has begun, and we need to have a realistic sense of your budget to be able to schedule a site visit. Otherwise, time is wasted by considering possibilities that can’t be afforded instead of focusing on how to create the most value for you as we possibly can.

This is completely dependent on the type of project and project size. A sweeping, full-home renovation generally takes around 4-6 months. A renovation complete with an addition takes 5-7 months, and building a custom home takes just less than a year, beginning with a 1-2 month design process. Minor renovations obviously take less time. Bathrooms usually take 2 weeks, and full basements take 4-6 weeks. If either of these require additions, as well as renovations, we usually project that it will take around 2-4 months to build. Depending on the scope of the project, the design and planning phase can take anywhere from 4 weeks to 8 months… Even if this is a time consuming step, it is absolutely worthwhile.

Yes, our 12-month warranty is considered to be one of the best in the industry for the client. The warranty covers the labour, as well as the installation of the entirety of your renovation project. The warranty on our finishing materials comes with a warranty that lasts another 5 years-10 years. There have been circumstances in the past where we have performed fixes and amendments on aspects of our projects after the warranty has expired, because it seemed to be the reasonable and honest course of action. Just because a project is complete, does not mean it is necessarily finished. We still take pride in everything that we build.

In some cases, projects end up being more expensive to complete than what you may have projected. However, the more you research you do, you will likely realize that this type of project may not be as simple as you might have imagined. Any type of construction is expensive, and this is especially true when it you are working with highly professional companies, rather than independent handymen and/or apathetic employees on an hourly wage. The answer to this question also depends on the scale and scope of your project.

We service all of the GTA. If you are curious about our perimeters, feel free to contact us via phone or email.

Considering the scale of the renovations we typically perform, it is advisable that you live elsewhere. Living in a home that is undergoing massive renovations is not safe or conducive to creating a productive work environment. If your renovation is a more minor one, like a spare room, or a bathroom in a house that has several toilets and showers, then staying is totally fine, but may still feel like an inconvenience or annoyance. If your situation involves pets and/or children, we recommend vacating the premises during the renovation procedure, as this activity can be very stressful for them.

No, this is a myth. We complete projects with great success through the entire year. Toronto has always been busy and bustling with construction and renovation projects during every month of the year. Regardless it’s best to schedule your project at least 3 months before you would like the renovation.
