WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"More careful with the budget than we were..."
Down Under Renovations made our very extensive, complex renovation of a 1930s home with a 1970s addition a smooth and happy experience. Clayton was always attentive to detail, and was able to help us make design decisions that could never have been accomplished off site. He has a wonderful aesthetic sense, a fantastic work ethic, and is dedicated to his customers and his product in a way that left us more than eager to recommend him to anyone in need of a renovator. In the year and a half since our project was finished (a project which involved a kitchen renovation, three bathrooms, a basement renovation, new carpet throughout, new hardwood floors along with custom cabinetry and shelving on the main floor, a new stucco exterior along with complete interior and exterior painting, a refurbished heating and cooling system, new decking and some reinforced roofing on the second level, and 70% new windows), the only thing that went slightly sideways was a couple of sagging kitchen drawers after they'd been loaded down for a year with very heavy contents. Down Under came to inspect the problem on the same day that we called, and in short order had replaced the factory slides with new ones and triple reinforced them to withstand my extreme use (drawers filled with cast iron and 16 settings of Denby stoneware).Down Under Renovations is utterly honest, more careful with the budget than we were, and to top it all off, wonderful guys to be around. Our Scarboro home is beautiful, and we have Down Under Renovations to thank for a very happy road to that wonderful result.
"Their work is meticulous..."
We were very happy with the renovations done by Clayton and Down Under Renovations. Their work is meticulous and they make sure you are satisfied with every detail of the work.
"We would recommend him to anyone!"
We heard about Down Under Renovations through a friend and thought we would give them a call. We are very glad that we did! Since we first called him, Clayton and his team were very personable, straightforward, and quick to call us back. After meeting Clayton and having him take a look at our bathroom, his feedback was honest about what kind of problems he may or may not find during the renovations and approximately what it would all cost. We appreciated his straightforwardness and trustworthiness. Once he started working on our bathroom, he was always on-time, showed up when he said he would and worked hard all day. More often than not we went with his thoroughly thought-out suggestions. My wife was home with our baby during this renovation and he was very respectful and friendly to her. We will definitely be giving Clayton a call when we do our kitchen renovation. We would recommend him to anyone!
"There is nothing he cannot build, install, or fix!"
Clayton renovated our kitchen and did an amazing job! From the start to the finish he was professional and patient, giving great advice when asked and was extremely accommodating with our time line. I would recommend him to anyone doing a renovation or a new build. There is to be nothing he cannot build, install, or fix!! We will be using Down Under Renovations again and you should too!
"He is exceedingly thorough and fully supervises his sub-trades."
Clayton of Down Under Renovations renovated an older home for me. He was always extremely courteous and reliable. He is exceedingly thorough and fully supervises his sub-trades. He is, himself, a skilled and talented craftsman. I appreciated his willingness to participate in the decision making and I found his suggestions to be sensible and appropriate. His work was completed in a timely fashion and he was careful to keep a close eye on my budget.
"Clayton has an extraordinary eye for detail..."
I hired Clayton and Down Under Renovations with my usual level of circumspection - even though he had been referred to me by a trusted friend. I kept a close eye on him at first, however, it soon became clear to me that I wasn't dealing with an ordinary contractor. Clayton has an extraordinary eye for detail and holds himself and those he supervises to a standard well above any renovation company I have ever worked with. I have already passed his info on to multiple friends looking to do some renovations and additions. I am confident that they will remain my friends after Clayton has completed their projects.
"His goal is to provide a finished product that is second to none..."
I've renovated and sold a few houses. I normally do the majority of the work myself as it is very difficult to find a high quality and cost effective contractor to work with. For my last project, I didn't have as much of my own time to give to the project so I hired Clayton, who was recommended to me by a friend. It is one of the best referrals I have ever received. Clayton's greatest asset is the fact that he takes great pride in his work and his goal is to provide a finished product that is second to none; something he expects of his employees, as well. What stood out for me from a project management standpoint is his ability to plan a job efficiently and cost effectively. One of the biggest risks of starting a large scale renovation is having the project spiral out of control. Having a contractor you can trust to manage costs and time is paramount. Clayton respects that this is your home. He does not cut corners, he is an artisan. My Dalhousie project came in under my business plan budget and my realtor was so impressed with the house he increased the planned listing cost by $50,000.00. The house sold for asking in less than 24hours and set a price/square foot record in the area. What more can I say? I'm planning to use Down Under Renovations again on my upcoming project.
Clayton and Down Under Renovations were an integral part of our custom home build. This included, but was not limited to: custom millwork and cabinet/millwork design. We found Clayton reliable, trustworthy, thorough, professional, accountable, a solid communicator, with an eye for detail. Whether it was a courtesy call to let us know he would be early or a few minutes late; the fact that we weren't left wondering came as a pleasant change to a lot of other trades that we experienced. I would highly recommend Clayton and Down Under Renovations.
