Enclosed please find my final payment for the renovation of 500 Loach's Road. It has truly been a pleasure to work with SLV on this project.
I would like to both thank and commend you and your team for the professionalism and dedication that you have shown towards my home renovation. At the begining of this project, I mentioned to you that your reputation on the street was one of the quality and meeting deadlines. From my experience of working with SLV, I can honestly say that you have gone above and beyond this.
It is very clear that from the onset, you and your team took a personal interest in my project that extended beyond what could normally be expected from a contractor. Across the spectrum - quality, timing communications - your work was frankly exceptional. While this may come across as hyperbole, it is the only word that really summarizes my experience. While the outcome is obviously important, I think that was established with you and your team. Being able to call you and Gilles after hours, Sunday afternoon meeting on the site, continuous project managamenet with Denise, - all of these made this experience incredibly easy from my perspective.
At the same time you made achieving my timeframes a priority. Showing up on site unannounced at 8:00 am and finding six of your guys already working demonstrated more than anything else that my project had your attention. At the begining of the project I teased you about how the demos on GHTV only take a day and couldn't understand what was taking so long. The reality, however, is that in less than three months you delivered a complete gut with extensive demolition ( I'll always remember the fireplace ) and the construction of what the former owner described as 'the nicest house he's ever been in'.
Once again, please accept my personal thanks for a job well done. Yours very truly,
Great experience working with SLV Homes on the renovation of a commercial/residential property, converting it to our home with an executive rental suite.
Alba, Louie & staff were fair, professional and we felt safe and supported by their knowledge and expertise. With a project this size there were issues; however, they always took the time to have open discussions when required.
Each of the SLV staff and contracted workers were friendly and helpful, offering valuable input and always greeting us with a smile. The work site was kept neat and safe for the many onsite tours with the very knowledgeable project lead.
We are happy with the end product and are proud to welcome family and friends.
We are extremely happy with the work that SLV Homes did for us this summer. They are very professional in terms of honoring their commitments of quality, time and cost. Their crew members are excellent craftsmen who take great pride in their work and in providing the customer with the highest quality. We had previously hired a professional landscape architect to come up with a plan to completely redo our backyard. SLV Homes made those plans a reality. They managed the complete tear down and rebuild of our outdoor space and made lots of recommendations that helped to improve our original plan. The scope of the work included putting in new interlocking patio stones and stone retaining walls, building 2 decks, new fencing, a trellis and a new storage shed. They also installed new garden beds with new plantings, an in-ground irrigation system and lighting. They concurrently did some internal cabinetry work and painting for us. They were consistently committed to fulfilling our standards and expectations. They were even meticulous in the daily clean-up of their work space and were always very conscientious about minimizing any disruptions to our neighbours which everyone appreciated. We can’t say enough good things about them - we would definitely highly recommend them.
In renovating our home, Louie, Alba and the team at SLV Homes far surpassed our expectations in terms of quality, all while delivering on cost and timeline commitments. Due to their high level of professionalism and superb craftsmanship, we would recommend them to anyone for a renovation or new build. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with SLV Homes.
When Brian and I started thinking about fixing the existing rear addition to our home, we contacted many contractors that found the job was too big for them . We were a little discouraged till the last contractor we asked to look at the job, recommended we contact SLV Homes. I googled the name found the telephone number and called that same day, spoke with the receptionist who informed me that Louie was out of town and he would call me the following week. Well I was shocked when Louie called me back within a couple of days especially since I called just before the Christmas holidays. He asked me if we had an emergency and explained he would contact me after the holidays to set up an appointment. I was so happy to hear that Louie would be calling. As promised in January, Louie called me and we arranged a meeting. He told me that he could certainly take on the job. We met several more times with Louie, he brought the designer with him who drew up a plan that we absolutely loved. We made a few little changes but not much. Louie and his team captured what we wanted and we were very excited! Louie provided us with a price and a timeline. As promised on May 10th the job started with Ryan as the head of the job. Louie told me there would be someone at our house everyday till the job was complete. Well we had someone arrive every morning at 7:30 and they would sometimes be here till after 5:00. The work was done very efficiently and they cleaned up every night. Of course we had dust because they had to demolish a 6 X 23 feet area in order to fix it properly. We were kept informed of the progress and every question or concern was addressed - Ryan even came back the first evening to make sure our freezer was still operating since we didn't have access to our basement - now that is going above expectations! Louie told us the job would take 2 months and on July 7th, short of 2 months, the job was complete. We were so impressed with the amount of work they did! We just love everything from the design to the finished product. Louie and his team did an amazing job! If you need a Reno done DO NOT HESITATE to call on SLV Homes - very professional and knowledgeable Thank you so much Louie, Alba, Ryan, Gil, Mark and their crew for the beautiful addition. We just love it and it fits in with our needs.
When we decided to renovate our basement, we called Louie Zagordo. We knew of his solid reputation for building quality new homes, so he was our only choice to transform our basement. Louie and Alba listened to our needs and wants and made our wish list happen in a timely fashion. While under construction the site was always neat, and the workers polite and efficient. Both Louie and Alba answered calls and queries without delay. Extremely excited with the transformation
When we decided not to move and do renovations instead, we weren't sure what to do or what was possible. Louie, when you shared your ideas and vision for our home, we were so excited. You took our "wish list" and made it possible. Alba, you made deciding on finishing details so easy for us. We love the floors, tiles, stone and colours. Louie, we have to mention the beautiful fireplaces and bathrooms. We could look at them all day. We want to thank you, Gilles and the rest of the crew for all your hard work and dedication. You always took the time to explain things to us and answer any questions that we might have. We feel so lucky to have our home and know that we made the right decision not to move. Thank you so very much. We love our home again!!!
STYLE, LUXURY, VALUE…that is exactly what Alba, Louie and their amazing team deliver. We could not have asked for a better experience. Every interaction was a positive one and we were always updated with what was to come in the building process. No matter the questions or the concerns, they were always addressed quickly, honestly and professionally. Building a home with SLV is a true partnership and the final result speaks for itself. We are extremely grateful to Alba and Louie for giving us their very best. Job well done! Extremely excited with the transformation
In 2015 my partner and I spent much time and thought when giving careful consideration to selecting a suitable contractor to renovate our 50+ year old home. Watching many TV renovation disasters left us skeptical in the beginning but after meeting with Louie Zagordo he left us with a most favourable impression that he shared our vision of a practical yet luxurious renovation that would serve us well in years to come and put added value back into our home. Louie and his team from SLV Homes listened to our needs and wants and would always go that “extra mile” in the finishing touches. Not only did he get the job done right, he finished on time and on budget! The finished renovation has on numerous occasions received many compliments from family, friends and professionals in the building and real estate markets and that in itself is the best testament to the pride and workmanship that goes into each project SLV undertakes. Any issues before, during and after the renovations were always dealt with in a prompt, courteous and professional manner so it is without hesitation that I highly recommend SLV Homes to anyone contemplating a new build or renovation should they desire “Style, Luxury and Value” for their hard earned dollars ( You will not be disappointed) I will allow the pictures of my “new home to speak for themselves. Thank you Louie and the entire SLV Homes team you have set the bar in the building standards a little higher.
Prior to even finding our lake front property, we had selected Louie and Alba from SLV to make our dream home a reality. The most important factor of having a custom home built, is the team working to bring it to life. From preliminary plans to the final walk through, SLV made sure the process was flawless and stress free. Alba’s designs knowledge combined with Louie’s experience and attention to detail transformed a drawing into a waterfront retreat! Style, Luxury and Value are only a few of many qualities this team demonstrates. We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Louie and Alba. If in the future we consider building again, SLV will be our choice for optimal construction. Congratulations on another gorgeous custom creation we now call home!
Congratulations Louie!! Your skills and professionalism should be acknowledged. You and your wonderful staff took our basement from ordinary to extraordinary. True to your word and always full of kindest and knowledge. We thank you!
