Basement Reno - We are very Happy!
We had completed renovations on the rest of our house and were getting ready to tackle “The Last Frontier”, the basement. It was outdated and we wanted a full bathroom installed. Jim was very prompt in calling us back and when he came to the house, we liked him right away. He could see our vision and had marvellous suggestions that hadn’t crossed our minds. Our input was always solicited as well; a team effort. They could start earlier than anticipated and that was greatly appreciated, although we had to hustle on purging 50 years of gathering! Jim’s team were a pleasure to have working in our home. They worked hard and constantly, cleaning up for us at the end of each day. Duct work was moved, wallboard installed, potlights in all of our rooms with dimmers, vinyl (!) hardwood looking flooring with an underlay, new doors and trim, the stairs all redone with new stained oak treads and railings, a gorgeous new bathroom with a walk-in shower and heated floors (Thanks for that suggestion, Jim!) and there is still more to list. They installed a multipurpose room for us which we love. It is a game room/extra bedroom/ and playroom for our young grandsons. A storage room 7’ x 17’ full of shelving! All of the basement windows were replaced as well. It was a large undertaking and we are thrilled with the outcome! Thank you very much Jim, it was such a pleasure to work with you and your team. The trades brought in for electrical and plumbing were all very respectful also a pleasure to have in our home. Everyone that comes in raves about the project! Lucky us.

Great company, professional, strive for high quality work
Shortly after purchasing a home, we discovered the water table was high and we had water leaking from the floor in the basement. We called Get Renovated and Jim responded quickly and set an appt for the next day. We had already hired a waterproofing company but we needed a general contractor to reconstruct the walls and upgrade the insulation quality of our basement. Get Renovated was the highest of three quotes but we immediately connected with the professional manner with which he dealt with us. Jim's crew was friendly and worked hard to schedule the work around the other trades we had in the house. He also brought in several other trades (heating, electricians and a roofer) to complete some other issues with our home. It may have been cheaper to hire these trades on our own but it simplified the process. All work was completed at a high standard and in a timely manner. His crew made living in the midst of construction more tolerable.

Great Renos from Get Renovated
Jim and his crew recently did a great job on our Living and Dining room renovations. All our work was completed in a timely fashion and in a very professional manner. I would recommend Get Renovated to anyone considering any type of work needed around their home. Thanks Jim for a job well done.

Very Happy Customers!
Get renovated did a great job on my home. I live there with my mother and now that I’m up there in age, I say Mom lives with me.  Get Renovated turned our small outdated kitchen, into an open-concept dining area and kitchen. They removed a wall, moved electrical, plumbing, installed new hardwood flooring on the main level and lower family room, layed ceramic tiles at the front door, changed all the staircases to stained oak (previously carpet). Smoothed out the stucco ceilings, installed pot and pendant lighting. Installed new kitchen cabinets with a 4’ x 9’ stone counter. Installed new baseboards and crown molding. Painted the 2 main levels and the upper hall and doors. They did the work on the timeline we agreed to and the crew was very respectful of our home and kept things neat and tidy. My mother and I could not be happier with the result. We are telling everyone we know and my mother is inviting all the neighbors in to see it. I was impressed with how the owner, Jim treated his workers. He treats them well and in return, I witnessed their efforts to do a good job. The lead man on my project was Doug and his attention to detail and desire to do a good job allows me, without hesitation, to recommend Jim Abbott and his team for your next renovation. I’ll be hiring them next year to update my basement kitchen. Annette Kelly & Lorraine French Very Happy Customers

Family Room Makeover
Get Renovated recently updated my family room. They installed new pot lights and crown molding. Also, they updated the fireplace with stone on the front and a new wood mantel. Once the room was painted it looked great. I have used Get Renovated before and would use them again for any renovations in my home.
Response from Get Renovated
We turned a 1980 family room into a modern family room. It could not have been done with out the customers vision of the fireplace. Thanks Peter

Professional, strong work ethic, great quality, attention to budget and time constraints
Get Renovated provided General Contractor services for the renovation of the York Curling Club Lounge. Right from the Request For Quote stage, Get Renovated exhibited professionalism, attention to detail and a strong integrity to deliver a quality product. Get Renovated stayed within Budget and Time constraints for the project. Any deviations from the original plan were presented in a timely manner with alternatives for resolution. The 2500+ sq ft renovation was energy efficiency driven and involved •Demolition & waste removal of the existing lounge interior, •Replacement of the glass viewing windows with thermal double paned glass •Replacement of the ceiling and associated insulation •Replacement of the interior walls and associated insulation •Upgrade ceiling lighting and associated electrical wiring •Decommissioning of a fireplace •Replacement of the floor coverings •Painting and necessary millwork as a result of the renovations. There would be no hesitation in recommending Get Renovated. It was a pleasure working with Jim Abbott and his team of professionals.
Response from Get Renovated
This was a big project with many aspects, that started in 2014, with a proposal. As a member of the club, I have had many people complement me of the finished product. I need to thanks all my employees, sub-contractor, board of director and Karen Morrison for the work that they did to make this a success.

Finished Basement
We live in Aurora and needed to have someone to professionally finish our basement. We had 3 companies prepare quotes for us. One was very expensive, an the other two were comparable with Get Renovated being one of them. We chose Get Renovated because they sad they could start earlier. We have always been told to to be weary of contractors who can start immediately because there is likely a reason they do not have work. We needed the basement done right away so we bit the bullet and gave the contract to Get Renovated because we liked Jim and his vision of what our basement could be. As promised they started almost immediately and worked straight for 5 weeks. The basement was finished as expected and to rave reviews. We love the space it has provided us as a family and spend almost every night is the cosy extra space Jim's team has provided. There were some extra features that he suggested. These were not features that he was trying to get us to add to increase the cost. He changed some pot lights to very low profile ones and suggested a sub-floor which has made an amazing difference. He will only suggest things as recommendations and each one we chose ended up being the right choice. I don't think you will go wrong selecting Get Renovated for your home renovation needs.
Response from Get Renovated
Basements are a great way to add additional living space to a house. The original space had some water damage and was broken up into small spaces. By removing a few walls, a water proof repair, adding additional lighting, they now have a great space for the complete family to hang out and watch TV, play some video game, or entertain friend and relatives.
