"Hi Andre, It looks amazing. Thank you and your crew for an amazing and painless reno. You will definitely be the first person we call for the next thing we do." Tracey & Gord
“Hi Andre, The wall units and shelving units you had made for us have proved to be very serviceable and a superior replacement for our previous units. The workmanship and durability is obvious. We were able to salvage some of the undamaged items from the flood. The newly manufactured pieces fit so well with the old and the colour match was amazing! Thanks again” Paul & Ingrid
”I absolutely love my new kitchen thanks to Andre, The Kitchen Guy and his team. After 25 years of having various contractors work in our home, working with him was hands down the most positive experience to date. We did a complete gut of our old kitchen including removing a wall and from the design phase to completion. Andre was organized, clear about next steps, kept a very clean work area, and stayed on schedule. His trades, without exception were impressive, all clearly taking personal pride in their work. If I had to pick three things I was most impressed by, it would be the time he took to help us form and sometimes rethink our ideas during the design phase, his attention to detail and meticulous finishing work, and his calm and genuine personality. Andre is a good communicator and this really mattered in how things unfolded day to day and there was not one bit of tension throughout the whole job. Now how many people can say that about a kitchen reno! We hope to have him back soon to do our bathroom. Thank you Andre!” – Bonnie & Gary
