We have already used JV Renovations for one; we are in the process of arranging for both to do further work in our house. Their price are fair (they give detailed quotations and stick to them) and the quality of their work universally excellent – but on top of that, they come when they say they will, they work incredibly hard and efficiently, they clean up properly, and they always explain anything out of the ordinary encountered. (we have an old, previously falling-to-bits house, so there’s always something unexpected). Joe even made a suggestion when he re-did a very damage ceiling – and he turned the suggestion (crown molding – which I didn’t think was possible with the sloping walls, etc – I’d been told by someone else it would look wonky) into the most beautiful feature of the whole downstairs renovation. They are multi-talented, superb problem solvers and very creative, willing to offeradvise if asked but never pushing us into things we don’t want. I have never before written a review for a contracting service, but I cannot speak highly enough of the work and the people of JV Renovation. They are helping us turn our ho-hum house into a home we really love, one project at a time. My only misgiving in writing this is that word will get out and we won’t be able to book them when we’ve saved enough for our next reno project!



We gave JV Renovations full marks on all the ratings because they truly deserve it. We short-listed them (for finishing our basement) after several responses through HandyCanadian. When we first met Joe in person we were pleasantly impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm. It was very clean after the first meeting itself that Joe believes in quality and is a perfectionist! It is verey apparent that both Joe and Raffie genuinely loves what they do an it really shows in the final product. We wish them good luck and would highly recommend their work to friends and family.



I was very impressed by JV Renovation and the service offered by HandyCanadian. It was a little skeptical of putting information out in cyberspace in hopes of finding a qualified contractor. I would highly recommend Joe and Raffie. I shared my ideas, they provided some options and a plan was set and met on time and on budget. I am so pleased with the job they did that I hope to call on them again for future renos.



Awesome work! JV Renovations really knows how to take care of their costumers. They are very polite, clean and respectful. Fair prices with amazing quality work. My kitchen was very old, in a bad condition and really ugly. Joe did a little bit of everything here (demolition, framing, plumbing, electrical, drywall and installed my kitchen cabinets) with precision. The job was done faster than expected with a beautiful result. I highly recommend them. I just love my kitchen!



Joe’s exceptional craftsmanship, attention to detail, and ingenuity turned my little basement apartment into a beautiful home that I absolutely love! Joe helped me pick good quality materials while staying within my budget. He re-imagined the layout of my kitchen and bathroom work tirelessly to transform spaces that I never imagined could look so nice! He was a pleasure to see everyday and is a rarity in his industry. His work ethic, vision and wonderful personality set him far apart from other contractors. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I have worked with Joe/JV Renovations on several client projects and have always had a great experience. He pays attention to detail and makes sure that things are done right.

His workmanship is impeccable and he is extremely reliable. As well, because I am not always on site it is important that he can communicate and manage client expectations and needs in my absence.

In the 5+ years that I have known Joe, he has always demonstrated impeccable work and professionalism. He has worked on projects of all sizes in my own home and in some of my investment properties and I have always been impressed with the quality of his work. During all the projects he has always timely, flexible with schedule, and always surpassed my expectations. His ingenuity and creative vision put him in class of his own and allow him to truly excel at his craft. I have called Joe to help me with all sorts of different projects ranging from bathroom and kitchen renovations to custom installations, hardwood floor installation and everything in between. Not only is Joe excellent at his job, but he is the loveliest person and I would recommend him without question!

As far as I’m concerned, this is nothing but the truth…

“No project is too small.”  That’s what Joe told me when he contacted me about my laundry room renovation.  Joe made some excellent suggestions on the design and got back to me with an estimate that was within my budget. Joe’s exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail turned my very old, ugly and cramped laundry room into a wonderfully bright and accessible workspace.  Typical of an older home, once all the walls and floors were exposed, we found a major problem we had not expected.  Joe assessed the problem, told us what needed to be done, gave us a reasonable estimate to do the work and did an exceptional job on the repairs.  It’s nice to know that’s what’s underneath is as top notch as what’s on top.  Joe is a very neat and organized contractor.  As each phase was done, he would clean up his job site and at the end of each day put all his tools and equipment neatly away.  Joe has a wonderful personality has the patience of a saint!  I was constantly peppering him with questions and he would patiently explain what was being done and why.  He even passed on a few tips I could use.  This was my first project with Joe, but I can guarantee it won’t be my last.  I will be recommending Joe to all my neighbours and friends.  You couldn’t ask for a more ethical, talented and reliable contractor.

Joe did an outstanding job on our en-suite reno. His attention to detail showed in every step of the project with a true passion for quality work. He took personal pride in this reno and we appreciated his design and product recommendations along the way. Plus, he respected our family’s schedules and needs through it all. Our bathroom looks amazing – we were so pleased with Joe’s work ethic and the fact that he did everything he promised! Finding a contractor who shows up and does what he says he will do is sometimes a rare find. We would definitely recommend Joe for future projects. Thanks so much!
