"We used Home Guru to do a large renovation at our home in Toronto. They gave us a new kitchen, bathroom, fireplace, foyer, cabinets, storage areas, drywall, and outside stairs. The guys at Home Guru (Aaron, Justin & Ian) have done a lot of this type of work and were great to deal with. They had the right trades on the job at the right time, and went above and beyond to make sure that the quality was high and we were happy with the project and results. This is a large project and it’s our home, so trust is really key. We completely trusted them in everything they did. They were above board about costs and the progression, and we had great communication throughout. It’s an older home, so it comes with its challenges and they discovered we had an issue with old pipes. They were on top of it and recommended the best way forward and got it fixed quickly. We’re done now and are thrilled with the results! We’d wholeheartedly recommend Home Guru."
"We felt very lucky to work with such a great company! The owners Aaron and Justin, and Ian our project manager assigned to our renovation were nothing short from professional, honest, patient and friendly. A quality that stood out to us was they all had high integrity. They valued doing things right, with high quality and standards to their work and work ethic. If something wasn't done properly, to their standard, or any other issue that came up, it was addressed asap and corrected/resolved. I took on the job of being our designer, thus had a relatively steep learning curve. They were outstanding with their patience and time that was required to help guide and tell me what was needed. We also loved working with their flooring/staircase supplier/contractor and one of their kitchen company's they recommended to be a good fit for us. We LOVE our new home and are very happy. Highly recommend Home Guru 🙂 "
"Aaron, Justin and Ian were fantastic. We had a small(ish) project to redo a bathroom. In the planning stage they proposed excellent suggestions to enhance our original ideas. They worked with us upfront to set all expectations so there were no surprises as the project went along. As issues arose (as they always do!) they communicated them clearly and handled them promptly and professionally (and fairly). Great quality of work - we’re thrilled with the end result. Happy to work with them anytime."
"Aaron and Justin are the picture of professionalism. They are never satisfied until the customer is happy. They go the extra mile to ensure all the client’s needs are met. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a general contractor."

"At a high level, our project consisted in - a kitchen remodel - removal of a load bearing wall - changing a rear window into a french door - redoing the flooring throughout the main floor. We selected Home Guru after meeting with 5 different contractors and we are very happy with our selection. Aaron and Justin are honest, hard-working, dependable and professional. Our site manager, Ian, was also great to work with. They guided us throughout the whole project, made great recommendations when we were unsure about our options. The project overall went very well. Within the timelines that were discussed originally and within budget that was agreed to. The site was kept clean They use an application that helps manage communication with everyone (CoConstruct) and for me that was actually a great way to have all communications and information in one place. It made exchanges quick and everyone was in the loop at the same time. I would definitely use them again for renovations in our house and have no problem recommending them to anyone who is looking to do renovations in their home. Thank you Home Guru for giving us a great experience with our home renovation."
"It was a pleasure working with Home Guru Inc. They respected the work schedule and worked collaboratively with us to address our concerns as they arise. They are very professional and delivered a quality job. We would highly recommend Home Guru Inc."
"We have worked with Home Guru twice now on two major renovations to our 4000 sq ft home. Aaron and Adam and Justin are running a seriously professional operation. The planning and attention to detail that goes into each project, I believe is a key factor to the success of their work. They offer a very user friendly online system which will keep you informed of their progress and show you exactly where money is being spent. They are very knowledgeable, they're there when you need them and they stand by their work. If you're thinking of building a custom home or doing a large renovation, these are the people you've been looking for. Give them a call and they will work with you to make your vision a reality, and they'll make it a great experience along the way."
Good morning Aaron and Justin, After settling into my new space I wanted to send a further note of thanks as I am discovering how great everything is. Every morning I marvel at how great the transition is between the wood flooring and the tile in the kitchen - it is simply beautiful. For the kitchen itself, I hated every single finish in the old one, now I stare at my kitchen and can hardly believe I own such a lovely space. The staircase is gorgeous, after seeing it in its completed form I've actually described it to someone as "I never knew stairs could look so good”. I am also thrilled with how the under the stairs cubbies turned out. With the finished floors and reconfigured supports the space is infinitely more usable and has easily doubled my storage options. In terms of the bathrooms, thank you for bringing my vision to life. Everything looks exactly like how my designer's heart imagined it would be. You've given me two beautiful and perfectly portioned bathrooms when I lived so long with an ugly one and a non-functional one. My gratitude to you, your team and trade partners is sincere.
"We highly recommend Home Guru! Justin, Aaron and team are true professionals with incredible knowledge, experience and know-how to get the job done right! This was our first major renovation on this 100+ year old house and there was a lot to worry about. However, we felt confident from the start that we were in good hands with Home Guru and indeed we were right! They met every challenge with an elegant solution that fit well within our budget. How they estimate is brilliant! It allowed us to select quality options for all finishings, fixtures, etc., with room to spare! It enabled allowances for the unforeseen increases in project scope, and also, as it turned out, for our non-urgent fix ups, long overdue. We were so grateful for a budget that allowed this! All the additional items added to the project scope were possible within our budget because of how the original estimate was done. They finished our basement and completely redid our kitchen, which we love!! Our kitchen is stunning and our favourite room now! Wall repair in the entryway, up the staircase and the second floor hallway (an additional scope item) has transformed that space to be so fresh and bright! Communication and budget tracking in the app throughout the project was also brilliant and provided much peace of mind. We could see in real time where our budget was at, with every invoice, expense and change-order upload. We could make spending decisions with confidence. All the trades they work with are respectful, professional and very knowledgeable - just like them! Thank you Justin, Aaron, Ian and Adam for a brilliant job well done! "
"I can't rave enough about how great the Home Guru team was during this process. An house underpinning is a big project to take on, especially living through the digging process. They were very courtsey, very clean and quick at completing the project. We have hired them on to finish our basement in the near future and will probably be our go-to contractors for any future projects. I would highly reccomend them. Thank you for your help."

"We were planning a complete renovation of the main floor of our single family house and we contacted about 15 companies. We found Home Guru on Houzz and were immediately impressed with Justin and Aaron. We signed an agreement in early September 2021 and quickly agreed scope, schedule and budget – and Justin and Aaron guided us through the item selection process and the various decisions to be made. Work commenced ahead of schedule in late October and the job was finished ahead of schedule and on budget in only 2 months despite the many supply chain challenges and various additions to the scope – and Justin and Aaron were super responsive and provided guidance throughout. I am recommending Home Guru to all my friends and family and will use them again if we need to do another renovation."
"Just wanted to take a minute to wish you two well in 2022. Thanks again for all your hard work on our place this year - we are thrilled to have spent our first Christmas holiday at our new home. Take care and all the best to you and the team!"
"Aaron, Justin, Thanks again for all your hard work and help in executing our kitchen renovation ideas. It has been great to work with you and you both made it a relatively pain free 4 months. It will be a great kitchen for us to grow into, and host our family and friends in. We will be sure to leave our review on Houzz. Much thanks!"
"We recently renovated the main floor of our home and were referred by friends to Home Guru. They were really helpful with the design of our kitchen and choosing the right materials. Aaron and Justin are professional and really know their stuff. We are thrilled with the results. "

"Aaron and Justin were a pleasure to work with. They were professional and punctual and always kept us updated on progress and next steps. I liked using the app they use to keep everyone on the same page and keep a concise record of conversations. The work was A+ and they delivered on budget. Would recommend!"
"We worked with Home Guru on a renovation of our townhouse. We had two sets of closet doors installed, we had carpeting replaced with engineered hardwood, and we had carpet removed and wood clad over three sets of stairs. We are very happy with the end product. Everything looks great and is good quality. Will definitely work with Home Guru again."
"We HIGHLY recommend Home Guru. They just finished our backyard oasis and we couldn’t be happier! The deck they planned is beautiful and expertly built. They have a team who clearly takes pride in their work and always look for the best way to do things. We are so excited to entertain in our new backyard! We would definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone."
"Aaron and Justin are great guys - very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Work was completed on time, with no surprises or hidden costs. The entire job looks gorgeous. I love the way everything looks. I would definitely recommend Home Guru!"
"We just finished a full-basement renovation and couldn’t be happier with the results. The attention to detail was amazing and all the crew coming in and out through the project were great to work with. Aaron and Justin kept us informed of the processes along the way and quickly answered the many questions we had through the process. Would totally recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and friendly crew for renovations!"
"Home Guru did an amazing job on our full basement renovation. We did a full-gut reno including leveling the basement floors, putting in radiant-heated floors, and full bathroom redo. The results are great and working with Aaron and Justin through the process was extremely easy and smooth. Would highly recommend their work!"
"Home Guru team are absolutely great! Extremely professional, attentive and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. They remodelled two of our bathrooms and the kitchen bar. We were absolutely very impressed. Aaron and Justin were so great and helpful. They helped us pick out the tiles, fixtures, plumbing and made recommendations for suppliers. All the work was done with as little mess and inconvenience to us as possible. Whatever issues we may have had, they were few and minor, were immediately resolved. Every bit of their work met or exceeded our expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend Home Guru with no reservations."
"Justin and Aaron recently oversaw the installing of a sump pump, drainage system, and repairs of structural damage in the basement, including new doors that had to be special ordered for a tiny basement entrance. Justin and Aaron, and all the trades people who worked on the house at different times, were knowledgeable, efficient, respectful and tidy. The project was completed within budget, and on time -- there were no surprises. When, as the project was under way, I considered making some changes, they were flexible and helpful in providing quotes fast as well as useful information to consider. Any time I had questions, they responded within hours or sooner, whether by text, phone, email, or dropping by if needed. I particularly appreciated how knowledgeable they are and how readily they shared that knowledge in plain language, to help me make the most informed decisions. Everything they say and do makes sense. I am grateful for the process and the final product!"
"We just had our kitchen completely renovated by Home Guru and they did a fantastic job! Justin, Aaron, and their team were extremely professional, knowledgeable, and very polite. We had the kitchen gutted, removed a wall, and had new floors, cabinets, and counter-tops put in. They kept us on budget and within our timeline and communicated with us the entire way. We would highly recommend Home Guru to anyone looking to renovate their home."
"The name says it all. Your home is your most prized possession and it takes a true professional to make you feel confident during any renovation or remodeling. The Gurus know their stuff and their work speaks for itself. They are there every step of the way. Their crews are top notch and the work gets done as promised. I would not hesitate to recommend Home Guru for any renovations or upgrades to your home. "
“We had a bathroom completely renovated, new floors installed throughout and laundry moved to the second floor. Very impressed with the quality of work and ability to meet my budget and needs as promised. Friendly, professional and super knowledgeable!”
“I think this was probably the least stressful renovation in the history of the world…”
"Justin and Aaron renovated our basement entirely and did a stellar job! From the planning stages to the final touches their team was efficient, courteous (I was pregnant at the time) and did their best to stay within budget. They were fantastic to work with and we would use them again for another project!"
“Home Guru did a fabulous job on our bathroom. The bathroom had to be taken right back to the studs and re-built. Home Guru did the design and the full renovation. Justin and Aaron stayed on top of the job. They were on site or in communication regularly. All their workmen and subcontractors were professional, friendly and did a great job. They always left the site clean at the end of the day (which wasn't easy to do in our small house) and they handled all the surprises that are inevitable once you start tearing into walls in an old downtown Toronto house. I would happily recommend Home Guru to anyone planning a home renovation. They are fantastic!”
"We were very anxious about our kitchen reno; we were going from an 80s kitchen to the new world. Aaron and his team was fantastic. They consulted and guided us all the way. On time and on budget with very little disruption. Thank you all!"
"We had a great experience with the Home Guru Team. They were professional, respectful, flexible and got the job done in the time line they said it would be done. We get compliments on our space everyday. We had a vision of what we wanted the space to look like and we are thrilled to say that it came out even better then we expected. Thank you so much Aaron, Justin and the Home Guru team for a job well done. It was a pleasure working with you."
"Aaron and Justin renovated our kitchen for us. They were great! They communicated clearly with me, providing me with written quotes, and daily updates along the way. They stayed on budget and showed up when they said they would, on time. The work was completed exactly within the time frame they estimated and they were very meticulous about cleaning up after themselves when they were done."
"Home Guru just completed a full bathroom renovation in our downtown condo. We love the finished product!. Working with Justin and Aaron was a pleasure. They were professional and accessible at all times. They helped us when necessary make the best decisions possible regarding our project. They stayed within the parameters of their estimate and there were no hidden costs. The various trades they employed to do the specialized work were to a man, and woman, excellent at their specific skills and always pleasant to have around. The crew kept our furnishings and flooring damage free by covering everything, blocking off rooms where they could and keeping heavy tarps on the floors. Each evening everything was put back into place and swept clean. The result is a beautiful new bathroom with great workmanship that we will enjoy for many years to come."
