More importantly, we want people to enjoy their renovation before, during, and long after it’s completed. This is the core truth of I Know a Guy Renovations since we formed in 2008.

“We did a major renovation to our home touching every room in the house. Overall we were extremely pleased with our experience working with I Know a Guy Renovations. From the outset they were very organized and professional. They listened carefully to what we wanted and made helpful suggestions. They worked very well with us and our designer. We appreciated their spirit of collaboration and cooperation.
They have a helpful structured process to work with clients to determine goals, set budgets and schedules. They were very flexible in trying to accommodate our schedules as well. They kept us well informed throughout the project and were very responsive to any questions we had. They have a transparent and reasonable process for making changes along the way.
They obviously have very good relationships with the trades they bring in, who all did high quality work and who take pride in their work. The job site was always clean and tidy. The project was completed on schedule and on budget. They promptly addressed any deficiencies (which were minor). Overall we are extremely pleased with the result and would highly recommend I Know a Guy Renovations.”
