I was sad to see that your sign was gone from my lawn yesterday when I came home. I guess all the work is done.
I am so please with the wonderful renovations you have completed at my home. I have received numerous comments about how beautiful it is, including from strangers such as deliverymen. I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for all that Pure Reno has accomplished in the last few months. Your professional and perfectionist approach to all aspects of the project is as impressive as the quality of your workmanship, and your attention to all details. I am grateful for your guidance when I was uncertain of what to opt for, for your suggestions on things I had not thought about, and for your unwavering patience when I was slow to make a choice or when adding new things to the list to be done. What started as a kitchen renovation (it is such a pleasure to cook and entertain now!) and finishing of the basement (so warm and cozy) turned into a more widespread contract involving almost the whole interior of my home. I adore the color scheme (I refer to it as 50 shades of grey) and am delighted I followed your recommendation for the red sunroom. It is absolutely stunning. You and your team are a pleasure to work with: so patient, considerate, reliable, and easy-going, no matter what requests I made. Most of all, I was amazed that when I voiced an idea, you took charge and handled everything. I can’t thank you enough for having created such a superb living environment for me to enjoy. I look forward to your suggestions for my backyard in the Spring!
We really appreciate all the work you have done over the last several months to make our renovations perfect. We are extremely pleased with the end result and are so happy that everything is now complete! It has been a real pleasure working with you and the rest of your team. Not only is your workmanship excellent, but your customer service is top-notch. We will gladly recommend Pure Reno to anyone we know who is looking to do renovations on their home. We look forward to working with you again in a few years when we undertake the renovation of our kitchen.

We have to say that we wouldn't hesitate to use Pure Reno again (and likely will in a couple of years!) and recommend you to all of our friends. I think it is incredibly rare to find contractors that are so diligent and that care about your house as much as you do. You and your crew were fantastic. So thank you for making our reno such a great experience!!

Dear Peppi and Bruno: My husband and I wanted to thank you both very much for the basement renovation that you just completed at our house. Our home looks beautiful. Your team is impressive for a number of reasons. Your workmanship is of utmost quality, your attention to details is amazing (absolutely love the window frames!), your patience is unfaltering as we remain undecided on certain options (this color or that color?), and your ability to advise us along the way is always welcome. You have a keen eye for what works and what does not work and we have never regretted following your lead. You obviously take pride in a job well done and it shows in everything that you touch. But what is even more impressive is the easy-going nature of your entire team. You are easy to work with, very approachable, and always ready and willing to address, with a smile, whatever requests or questions we may have (even at the end of a long day!). By now, you have pretty much redone our entire house (well, hum…still one room to go) and our experience has been the same throughout the years. Many thanks for everything. You guys are simply the best.

We recently undertook an ambitious down-to-stud renovation of out circa 1930s home which involved significant structural and design work and the replacement of just about everything except the slab, bricks and roof. Choosing Pure Reno to do it was the best decision we made. It is a family-run business with Peppi and Bruno at the helm, and they are discerning about the employees and sub-contractors they hire. They provided sound economical advice to ensure we did not make short-sighted decisions and they were committed to ensuring we were happy with the end product. Endorsing them is a pleasure for us, and I invite you to come and see the inside of our house if you have any doubts.

For many years we disliked the main floor layout in our 2 storey house. The dining room was closed off and small so we rarely used that room. Likewise, a living room near the front of the house was isolated and never used. We wanted an open concept that would allow us to use the whole main floor and at the same time update the kitchen and fireplace. We solicited ideas from a number of contractors and couldn’t get a feel for what was to come, so we hesitated again and again. Then in May 2010 we had Peppi and Bruno of Purereno provide free estimates on not one but three different renovation options that they knew would work with the architecture of the main floor. They explained step by step building processes and created a picture of what to expect. After talking with them we knew they were experts at what they do and that they love the work and take pride in every job they complete. That gave us the confidence to initiate the project. They were very knowledgeable about the wide range of materials that we should consider. When we were overwhelmed by the choices, they assisted in choosing granite, backsplash stone and paint colors that they knew worked well together.
Peppi and Bruno have a great team of employee’s as well as ties with very good sub-contractors, and as a result, the completed work exceeded what we had hoped for. New energy saving windows were installed in the entire house and we couldn’t believe the beautiful trim and windowsill’s they created throughout the house (and how warm the house is this winter). Purereno employees kept the worksite very clean and neat and swept and vacuumed all work areas at the end of every day. As they worked on the renovations, they upgraded many other things throughout the house – wiring, light switches, door knobs, anything they knew should be fixed. Expert professional work and friendly approachable people always accommodated our wishes throughout the project. As we saw things coming together on the main floor, we just had to ask Peppi and Bruno if it would be possible to renovate our Master Bedroom, the Ensuite Bathroom, build a Walk In Closet and renovate the Main Bathroom as well. We were amazed when they said they could work all those new jobs into the current project by staying just a few extra weeks.The prices quoted for all parts of the project and the project timelines provided by Peppi were always correct and didn’t change. We will only ever hire Peppi and Bruno for any future renovations we will need, and will recommend Purereno to our family and friends. Many thanks.

“When you’re thinking of removing the back of your almost 100 year old house to build a large addition, you really want to make sure your team knows what it is doing. Our project was further complicated by the fact that we didn’t intend to build a complete foundation under the addition. Pure Reno was the right team for us. They filled us with confidence that the back of the house wouldn’t crumble while they built the addition. We intended to live in the house during the renovation which complicated matters for the team. Every step was thoughtfully planned out for the house, and for my family. I totally enjoyed having the crew with me during the 10 week renovation and sincerely missed seeing them for coffee every morning because they were so wonderful to work with. They tweaked the renovation (complete with a new family room, kitchen, bathroom and mudroom) with such incredible detail that we still marvel at the subtle touches. We highly recommend Pure Reno to anyone, and have put that into practice by telling all of our friends about this incredible team.”
We have now had PureReno do three major jobs for us--back addition/garage/kitchen, front hall closet & bathroom, and finishing of the basement. The fact that we have kept them coming back is probably the greatest testimonial we could offer. Their craftsmanship is impeccable. I also have great respect for their design esthetic--they have done a fantastic job of updating our 1935 Younghusband home while preserving its original character. You could not ask for two nicer guys than Peppi and Bruno LaRiccia. Over the years that we have worked together, they have become like family. We trust them implicitly with our home, our reno budget, even our dogs! We would not have any other contractor work on our home.

After two years of research, we were confident finally choosing Pure Reno to gut the main floor of our house. This included removing walls, refinishing floors and building a new kitchen, bathroom and mudroom. Not only did we have a worry-free experience, but Peppi and his team were incredible to work with - friendly, respectful, trustworthy and professional. From building a makeshift kitchen in the basement to incorporating unique details into the final design, Pure Reno is the whole package! We won't hesitate to hire them again for our next project.
What started out as a kitchen renovation morphed into a full-on main floor attack involving kitchen, family room, dining room, hallway, powder room, laundry room and basement shower stall repair. Pure Reno took on everything we threw at them and more. Peppi and Bruno were very easy to reach when a question or area of concern arose. They along with their extremely hardworking team are neat, courteous, good-humoured, trustworthy and most of all talented. Pure Reno’s ‘after sales’ service is stellar! Our final product is exactly what we had hoped for and we look forward to working with Pure Reno again.

When we decided to renovate instead of move it was important to find the right company. We would be entrusting them with not only our house but our home. The foundation of any successful business relationship is trust. From the moment we met Peppi and his team we knew Pure Reno was that company. They were able to meet and exceed every criteria we wanted and needed in a renovation company. This is a well-established company of highly skilled professionals whose commitment to excellence and pride of workmanship was evident throughout the project.
Every phase of this renovation from design and implementation to completion was patiently and comprehensively explained. Architectural concepts were communicated in a manner that was clear and straightforward to a layperson. We believe this is an ability that is unsurpassed in the industry. More importantly any fears we had about the successful completion of this reno (and there were many) were quickly allayed.
In short they did what they said they were going to do and they did it on time. The results are spectacular! Pure Reno earned our trust.
