Darrell May

rating Privacy Fence Construction

I highly recommend Harley Restorations. Unlike other contractors we contacted for a quote, Bob responded to our initial call within minutes, arrived at our home within an hour, and had the work completed as professionally as we could have hoped for on budget and within the timeline promised. Their workmen were courteous, efficient and cleaned up after themselves. Great experience! We're already making arrangements to retain them again.

rating Fence and New Retaining Wall

Bob and his crew did a great job removing our old fence and removed our old shed. They replaced it with new fence and add a new retaining wall. They worked around our schedule allowing our neighbor to grow their veggie. They were on time and kept the yard clean for our dogs could go outside in the evenings.

Enjoyed the fact that Bob sat down with us to discussed what he was going to do and how long it would take.

They fixed a couple of items they found that needed to be addressed and just got it done.

Thanks Bob and your crew for a job well done.

 rating Fence and Gate

Right from the start Bob was professional. He was prompt at returning my call, came by for an estimate when he promised, and was patient with us while we decided what we wanted some after a few estimates and ideas.

We were more than happy with the work as Bob and his team had to work around many different obstacles to make everything work and look great! After he completed the work (on time!), I had a conversation with him to book another job! Once u work with Bib and his team you know that they know what they are doing and will do a great job!

  rating Backyard Privacy Fence

We are so pleased with the fence that Bob and his crew just installed. Bob was the only contractor that returned my request for a quote and showed up when he said he was going to. He was very easy to communicate with via email and phone and was always prompt with his replies. He and the crew always showed up on time and completed the construction in a very timely manner. I liked dealing with Bob, as I could tell he knew what he was talking about, but he was very patient in explaining things and didn't try and rush any decisions. His entire crew was very courteous and friendly. The fence is beautiful and has created a nice private backyard space for our young children. We hope to use Bob again in the future!

rating New Back Yard Fences

Finding a reputable company to tackle our fencing issues was more of a challenge than we initially anticipated. We were turned down by a couple of firms because the 100 feet of fencing we needed torn down and replaced, backed onto multiple properties and was on a sloping hill filled with trees. We found Harley Renovations on the Trusted Pro website and emailed them. Bob got back to us immediately and came by our house the next day to give us a quote. We felt his price was reasonable given the difficulty of the job. Bob was knowledgeable and friendly and gave us a timeline of no more than 5 days. He and his crew arrived on time, worked cleanly and tirelessly and were very friendly. They solved any problems they incurred in a professional manner and actually finished the job in 2.5 days. Bob followed the design we requested and suggested his own ideas for finishing (black caps on the fence posts) which look fantastic and will last longer due to higher grade materials. The crew did their best not to trample the dense growth we had on the hill by creating one path to walk on but if I were to make a recommendation to someone doing a job like this, I would suggest doing it in the fall when the growing season is over to minimize plant destruction. A big thank you to Bob and his crew for a job well done. The fence looks amazing!

 rating Wood Fence in Backyard

We contacted Harley Renovations to build a wood fence in the backyard. Bob and his team were very professional, very punctual and always cleaned up after each day. Although we asked a lot of questions as we go along the project, Bob explained the details clearly especially since he was dealing with two other neighbor's who were sharing the expenses with me. We are very happy with the result. Highly recommended.

 rating Backyard Fence

I had called several fencing companies and Bob was the only one that called me back right away to set up a meeting for a quote. Once I contacted Bob to go ahead with the work, he gave me an approximate date to have the work done and followed up as was discussed. The work was finished within two days and on time. I was very pleased with the quality of work and expertise. A little thing like having plastic caps on the posts instead of wooden ones for longevity/wear and tear on the post went a long way. The final cost for the job was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend Harley Renovations for fence work with Bob running the show.

rating Deck Installation

Harley Renovations was great to work with. Unlike many companies I called for an original quote, Bob actually showed up when he said he would to provide a comprehensive quote on the job. Like their website states they will not be the cheapest quote, however the quality of their work speaks for itself.

Extremely professional from the very beginning, Bob and his team showed up every morning, either on time or early and explained every step of the process along the way. They were clear as to when I needed to call the inspector and what to expect from the process.

Bob responded to all my inquiries in a timely manner, and was easy to talk to, by phone as well as by email.

I would not hesitate for a moment to use them again.

  rating Demolition, Fencing and Hardwood Floors

Prior to working with Bob and his crew from Harley Renovations, I had never really considered customer service as part of the equation when hiring a contractor. Typically, the job is planned, the workers come in, go about their business, and everything gets done as planned without much interaction. What I really appreciated about the guys from Harley is how they kept both myself and my wife engaged throughout the entire process.

Any questions we had were handled promptly and most importantly without argument. There was a constant exchange of ideas on how to handle every situation that arose, and any improvements we asked for during the process were handled exactly as requested.

Although landscaping was not part of the original quote, a member of the crew came back once the fencing job was complete to assist us with tilling the backyard and finishing the work.

Their craftsmanship and expertise were top notch. We have a couple of future renovations still being planned with our kitchen and bathroom, and we would not hesitate at all to contact Harley for those jobs. Overall we had an outstanding experience provided by a highly professional group.

 rating Wood Backyard Fence

They did a really nice job building a fence in our backyard. Bob was very professional to work with and very responsive via email & phone. We were so please we have asked them to do additional work for us.

Finding a good contractor is not so easy - especially in busy Toronto. We found this company via the Internet and took a chance on them. We lucked out I am happy to say.

Bob and his colleague were great! They came to our house each morning on time and took their time without cutting corners. Would call them again if I needed another job done.

 rating Replace Bathroom Floor Tile

After struggling for months to find someone to replace my poorly installed bathroom floor tiles back in 2008, I found Harley Renovations listed on this Trusted Pros site.

Bob responded to my email the same day and arrived as promised a few days later to inspect the job and provide a quote. After looking at the tile that I purchased, he really impressed me with his knowledge by explaining the issues related to installing 12" x 24" tile. No one at the various tile stores mentioned the "cupping" issue with larger tile and how to address it. As a result, Bob was key to setting my expectations on the actual install.

The quote was on the high side, but I decided to go with Bob based on his knowledge, availability and positive reviews. Bob and his crew arrived on time and worked non stop.

Given that I am a DIY person who works from home, I was watching the entire process from start to finish and they were great in answering all of my questions and concerns.

They did experience issues along the way, (ditra) not adhering to floor due to poor mortar, lining up tile to uneven tile thresholds, etc,) but managed to complete the job on time and budget.

For me, the big plus with Bob and crew was how they came back to address a small issue I found the next business day.

The only constructive criticism I can provide is the lack of dust containment during the removal of the old floor, but not a big deal as I was able to vacuum before my wife arrived home from work :)

A big thanks to Bob, Shawn and Dominique..It was a pleasure getting to know you guys.

 rating Bathroom Fix up

I can't say enough good things about Bob and his assistant Shawn. After a potentially disastrous sink cabinet replacement unearthed a whole bunch of unexpected gotchas, I seemed faced with either just accepting an ugly porous bathroom or having to do a major renovation. But Bob took a look and told me, "Don't worry, we can make it right."

He was truly as good as his word, and at a price which was tremendously reasonable. I'd recommend Bob any time for his honesty and know-how. Thanks again!

Excellent service throughout - undertook a number of jobs in our house, all completed to an excellent standard and to schedule. Very reasonably priced and will be contracting Harley Renovations again in the new year to finish some further improvements that are needed.

 rating Tear down existing old deck and rebuild new deck

I would highly recommend Harley Renovations. This November they tore down and replaced our old worn out deck. They are a great bunch of guys. They are timely, willing to listen to any last minute changes that you may have. Every night they cleaned up the whole area so there was no inconvenience for us. Very professional and efficient. We are very pleased with the end results

Jeffrey Jacobs

 rating Rebuilt Fence & Retaining Wall

Our perimeter fence was starting to list to overhang the sidewalk. The retaining wall had started to shift as the fence was pushing into it. The original contractor that was very highly rated didn't build the retaining wall properly. The staff at Harley Renovations rebuilt the retaining wall and built a beautiful perimeter fence to match.

Michele Sankar

 rating Kitchen Floor Tile Removal and Replacement

Bob and his team came to our home to remove poorly laid floor tiles and replace them with new ones. They worked efficiently, yet spent time carefully making precise measurements, checking and rechecking. We were thrilled with their punctuality, attention to detail, and high quality of work. We especially appreciated that when they came across problem areas from the previous job, they pointed them out and explained how they would correct them. Communication was excellent. As well as providing top quality service and fine craftsmanship, they also cleaned up thoroughly after each day's work. We will only call Harley Renovations for any future work at our home or property.

Prompt, polite and professional. On time and on budget. We are very pleased with the job and wish we had hired Bob to lay the tile for our floor!

 rating Basement Tiling

We have just completed a small project with Harley Renovations in our basement. We had to replace tiles that were beaten up when we had to replace the mains under the house. Bob came in to look, gave us a quote and said that the job would take a few days to do.

Bob was spot on, the job took three days in total, was on budget and the tiles looks great. Communication was there, job site was cleaned up each day. Was very happy with the job. Thank you Bob.

Would recommend Harley Renovations and will use them again.

 rating Tile Floor Installation

Bob installed a new porcelain tile floor for our new kitchen, bathroom and main hallway. The work done was impeccable! Both Bob and Sean took their time to make sure that every tile was perfectly leveled and placed correctly. They also replaced part of the sub floor and installed ditra under the tile floor. They have made sure that the floor in our 30 year old house is now level and very solid!

We are very happy with the job done. I would recommend Bob and would also hire him again. In fact, I have already hired him to come back in a few weeks to install the backsplash in our kitchen.

He is very knowledgeable and has brought forth a lot of valuable information for us to consider during our renovation.

 rating Basement Makeover

I had a pipe burst and it wrecked my entire basement. Bob was great. He came and not only fixed my basement. But helped me also open it up into a very functional open concept basement that me and my kids use as an office/man cave/playroom. He helped resolve a mold issue I had no idea existed and helped insulate my basement that previously lacked any REAL insulation on the exterior walls. Bob from Harley renovations was honestly a god sent. I'm overly happy with his work and straight forward approach. No beating around the bush and it's clear he knows what he's talking about. he'll be the first I call whenever I need to start my next project.

 rating Bathroom Renovation

I hired Harley Renovations to renovate my bathroom and i am very happy with the results. The qualify of their craftsmanship is outstanding. They gutted the bathroom which was full of mold due to past poor work quality, done by someone else.

Bob is the gentleman in charge, he used the best quality materials and did not cut corners. Bob and his crew aim to please their customer. They are very courteous, professional and arrive on time and always clean up before leaving the job site. After so many bad experiences i finally found a contractor that i can trust and be very happy with. I fully recommend them to anyone wishing to hire a contractor. You cannot find a more reliable company.

Harley Renovations demonstrated a meticulous and high quality standard in their craftsmanship. Additionally, aim to please the customer to actualize what you are looking for in your project. Both myself and the neighbor love the joint fence between us and couldn't be happier with the results.

 rating Removed Suspended Kitchen Ceiling, Installed Crown Molding, Painted Several Rooms and Ceilings, Including a Two Story Over The Stairs Ceiling, Bathroom Painting Also

I had the kitchen ceiling renovated and was very pleased with the crown molding installation. All old materials from the previous suspended ceiling were removed and the ceiling was "patched" where necessary before it was painted. Excellent finish, very satisfactory, I had a number of rooms painted, some with a stucco ceiling, and these also were finished to my satisfaction. An over-the-stairs two story stucco ceiling was painted, again very satisfactory. They ensured that all painted areas were completed without any previous paint or wear showing through, very thoroughly covered, before moving on to the next paint project. They were very courteous and made enquirers when necessary before proceeding on with certain painted surfaces. Arrived on time and cleaned up each day. I was very pleased with the work done and would use this company again for further projects, along with recommending them to others.

 rating Kitchen Wall Opening

Bob and the Harley Renovations crew opened up the wall between our kitchen and living room.

Bob and his team were very professional, priced competitively, and kept the site clean. Harley Renovations delivered beyond expectation by performing the work expected with great attention to detail, and giving us some much needed advice and guidance on the home renovations we decided to take on ourselves.

Will add some 'complete' photos once floor and painting are complete

Thanks Bob, Sean and Harley team! looking forward to our next renovation with you.

rating Repair Water Damage to Basement Wall

Bob and his crew removed an entire wall in our basement after we had a burst pipe and considerable water damage. Bob pointed out several deficiencies with the original work performed years earlier and remedied those during his repair. A few other problems were discovered once the wall was entirely removed and Bob repaired those at no additional charge. The wall is now complete and properly insulated and painted and looks great. The whole job took only a week and the cleanup by Bob and his crew each day was appreciated. Drywall dust is a nightmare and while impossible to completely eliminate they did a nice job of minimizing the clean up on our end.

 rating Stripped and Re stained Deck. Replaced External Exhaust Vents.

Bob and his son stripped and re stained our deck. We were very pleased with their work and as a result later contacted Bob to ask him to replace external laundry room and kitchen exhaust vents. Bob is very knowledgeable and provided recommendations regarding the types of stains, application methods and vent options. He also offered suggestions regarding ongoing deck maintenance to prevent wood deterioration and to ensure a "like new" appearance. The work was done with care and on time as scheduled.

Both Bob and his son were very friendly, courteous, helpful and professional. Bob believes in delivering quality workmanship. I recommend Bob and his son for small or large jobs and will request their services for other projects in the future.

 rating Flooring, Dry walling, Plumbing and Painting

Bob and his guys did some flooring, plumbing, dry walling and painting work at my house. Throughout the entire process, they were professional, punctual, friendly and did an outstanding job. Bob kept me informed through all phases of the renovation, got my input and showed concern that my needs were met. It was a genuine pleasure having them at my house and the end result was more than I could have hoped for. I would have no hesitation recommending them to friends or family.

Craig Robertson

 rating Basement Reno

Bob was hired to finish a basement Reno that was about 80% complete. He and his crew built window wells, laid down flooring, installed casing and trim, custom installed doors and frames, built shelving, built laundry space and closets, tiled a bathroom, installed bathroom fixtures and more. They were on time each day, told us what to expect to be completed that day and were always up front about money. They also had no issues about returning after the job was finished to do a few touch ups that we requested. He and his crew are very friendly and hard-working and having them in our home was never an issue as they were always courteous. In the end, we are very happy with the final 20% of our basement Reno as Bob did great work.

I hired Bob at Harley renovations to replace my shower tile, in the main bathroom. they were on time everyday and very clean and thorough. His quote was directly on and the time frame completed within. I have recommended him to all of my friends and co-workers. Not only does he do the best job he goes over and above to make the customer happy. Bob and his team were so helpful with everything. He became apart of our family in the week that he was working for us. him and and his team are so down to earth, honest and reliable. He will be doing all of my contracting work from now on... hiring him is the right choice.
