Bedroom Reno and Hardwood Installation
Conor and Jason are genuine hardworking and authentic beings, so by extension their crew demonstrates the same traits. The result? A pleasant and stress-free, relatively speaking, renovation experience.
Conor and Jason were transparent through the entire process of what changes were happening (some, actually most, by own hand) and the impact of those changes. Each day they tidied up and made thoughtful gestures like setting up my one and only chair in the only empty room so I could sit and relax a bit amongst the renovation chaos. They even set up my daughters bed frame for her!
One critical factor in my decision to sign on with Genuine Renovations is their level of pet friendliness. I have an old neurotic rescue dog, a middle aged grumpy cat, and a very curious and fearless kitten. A zoo, basically. Conor and Jason navigated work around the animals so amazingly. I never worried about them letting the cats out by accident or that they would be afraid of my dog. Major points for this!!
I would highly recommend, without hesitation, Genuine Renovations for any job you may be considering.

Jason and Conner installed new hardwood floors which included stain and clear coat. They also did a fantastic job tiling the shower and bathroom floor. Jason was very thorough with his work. They made the quote process very easy and simple to understand.They kept me updated on their progress and finished the job on schedule. The overall quality was fantastic!
I highly recommend working with both Jason and Conor they are both knowledgeable and easy to deal with. We are already planning our next project together. looking to add an addition to my parents place. From foundations to finishes they know how to complete a project.
Looking forward to working with Genuine again!

Refacing Front Porch and Soffits
Working with Genuine Renovations, from the initial consultation to the end result, has been extremely easy. They are reasonably priced, accommodating with my ideas for what I was looking for, extremely particular with their workmanship and professional. Although it was a relatively small job, they did the work as if it was on their own home, meticulously. Conor, Jason and his team went the extra mile on a couple of occasions which I am extremely grateful for. They stayed on budget and are perfectionists, delivering a front facade that works with our house and has increased its curb appeal. I highly recommend this company and I look forward to working with Genuine Renovations on future projects.
Excellent Work on House Exterior
The is my second time using Genuine Renovations.
Extremely professional and extremely courteous – the team is an absolute pleasure to work with. Provided my wife and I with a great sense of confidence that the job would be done well and done right. Provided us with a step-by-step review of what needed to be done and the expected timing. We are very happy with the finished project.
Would not hesitate to hire again.
Thank you team,

Rebuild of Porch
Conor and his team did an amazing job rebuilding our front porch. They were very friendly and great to work with. They had great attention to detail, good ideas for ways to make it nice (cedar underside), were reliable, and completed the project on schedule. Thanks for doing such an awesome job – we love the new porch!

Eaves, Soffit, Fascia Repairs
Genuine Renovations provided excellent service in making critical repairs to our house exterior (soffit, fascia, eaves, plus tuck-pointing brick). They were prompt, responsive, honest, and reliable. The service they provided and the fee charged was exactly as discussed, with no surprises. What’s more, the team was always pleasant and respectful while working at our home. And clean-up at the end was thorough. We can recommend them very highly.

All around very impressed!!!
I just finished having my condo completely upgraded! Genuine Renovation did a great job removing and replacing my floors in the living room and laying down hard wood with all the trim. They also updated my kitchen.
Overall they managed to stay on budget and finished the job in the time quoted!
I will most definitely use them again for any future projects!

We used genuine renovations for a complete re-do of our backyard. It was the best decision we made. We got a few quotes for this job, but the passion and attention to detail is what drove us to pick genuine for this job. Conor and Jason are great to work with, very personable, knowledgeable, and brought alot of ideas to the table. We made some changes throughout the project, but there was never an issue when the changes were brought to Conor or Jay’s attention. They were always on time and if they were not able to make it on any day, they would call or contact us to let us know why. We couldn’t have asked for a better results, or better people to work with.
Most importantly, the job was completed on time and on budget. Genuine is very competitive in their pricing, and have alot of ideas to offer for a project. I would highly recommend Conor and Jay for any job.
We had a vision for our backyard, and with the help with Conor and Jay, its exactly what we wanted, and more.
Will definitely use them for future projects.

Metal and Wood Siding
Conor and Jason are a cut above the rest. Hired them to do siding and flashing that our general contractor let slide until December! I thought we would have to wait until the spring to get somebody in but these guys didn’t blink and got it done in terrible conditions.
They are by far one of the most reliable and trusted trades we dealt with during our renovation. They showed up when they said they would and let us know in advance if they weren’t going to show up and why. Always keep us in the loop as far as timelines and gave us options before proceeding with any work. They also didn’t surprise us with any extras without warning. A rare combination for trades.
They are probably not the cheapest, or the most expensive, but I believe that you get what you pay for and I would say Genuine Renovations was well worth it. We will definitely be using Conor and Jason again.

Demolition, Renovation, Patching & Disposal
Conor & Jay did an excellent job from initial quoting to final touch ups. Throughout the entire process (complete demotion of an older apartment building (1960’s) – these guys made sure each decision was considered and well-executed. I work with a lot of sub-contractors in advertising and I was super impressed with the intention to detail Conor had when dealing with all the elements of the job: demo, electric, plumbing, site management. He came in on-budget & on-time, which is fantastic. He also made sure all the neighbours were kept informed and came away with glowing reviews from them, which was important to my wife & I given that we are going to be spending the next few years in our sweet new place with them around, so we didn’t want this project to cause a rift – and with Conor driving the project – we are super happy with the end result. You can’t go wrong with these guys!

Basement Renovation (Rec Room)
We hired Conor and Jason to renovate a large room in our basement which we had stripped down to (almost) bare concrete. They were very thorough in their estimate and gave us lots of options to work with. Their crew was very friendly and clean. The final result is excellent, and we’re happy that we now have a nice, livable space in our basement!

Jason was both professional and efficient when completing my main floor after it was gutted. I had had trouble with our contractor prior to completing this reno, and after he went MIA I struggled finding someone to complete the reno. Jason came in to sort out the mess. He tiled, installed hardwood floors, drywalled and dealt with all finishes of our main floor, exceeding all expectations. He had no problem scheduling in the right trades when we needed them.
I’d be happy to recommend Genuine Renovations to anybody looking for quality work done at a fair price.

Painting and Repair Work
I highly recommend Jason and his crew. He was lovely to work with. He listened to what I needed and had helpful solutions. His work was excellent, he cleaned up well and best of all was how he did little extras that made the job even better. I had one small issue and when I called him, he came the very next day and fixed it to my total satisfaction.

Finished My Basement, and Put in a Washroom
I thought these young gentlemen conducted themselves with a certain level of class that you don’t often see in the younger generation. They had great senses of humour, were tidy, on time with their scheduled start and finish, and they were honest about where my money was going.
I would be happy to work with them again!
