Customer Testimonials

According to our customers…


Joe and crew renovated my main floor and installed my kitchen. When I mentioned that the countertop company that I had contacted said it would be 3-4 weeks, Joe said I can get it for you in 1 week I said great give me a quote. It’s was beautifully installed 6 days later and was almost $1000 Less.

Thank you Joe and Fred for my beautiful main floor, countertop and savings.

Shirley and Fred

Joe and his team did an awesome job renovating our bathroom. We could not be more pleased, from the quality of the workmanship to the exact time estimate Joe gave us. There were no surprises, everything went exactly as specified. Thanks again guys!!! We love our new bathroom!!

Vicci & Mike

We are beyond excited about the renovation that Joe & Craig and team did to our upstairs in April. Our house looks like a new home inside.

They were friendly & upfront about any concerns or potential extra costs. They offered their opinions and ideas on the work and we ended up going with a lot of their ideas. It was easy to get a hold of them all the time… Joe would even help us when we were at stores with questions over the phone.

The quality of the work is fantastic and the team was always tidy and on time. There a ton of great things to say about J&C, we would have them back for future projects.

We get lots of compliments from our friends & family and would recommend J&C to other who are considering renovations.

Sue Dunbar

Words cannot express how appreciative we are for the professionalism and workmanship exhibited by Joe and his team on our basement renovation. Faced with a tight timeline, and very specific requirements (like incorporating a walk-in bathtub), this smaller than usual job for this company was given top priority.

No corners cut. As renovation novices, we relied heavily on Joe’s insight, experience, and ideas to guide us through the process…and he delivered. The basement (rec room and full bathroom) is amazing. As a result, our family highly recommends them. We wouldn’t hesitate to enlist J and C Contracting again.

Carmela & Rich

Our friends recommended J&C Contracting to us after they had their basement done and we were not disappointed. Joe and his team were punctual, reliable, trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. They finished our basement from beginning to end, as well as some projects in our kitchen and we LOVE all of it.

Every person on their team was professional and clean, we barely knew they were in our home. Our job was done on time and on budget, no surprises. Craig is a perfectionist and will make sure everything is just as you want it. Joe and Craig made great suggestions and were always open to discussing our ideas to make our renovation dream come true. Our basement is awesome! A great big THANK YOU!!! We would recommend J&C Contracting in a heartbeat.

Chris & Stephanie

We’ve recently had our basement completely finished and we couldn’t be more pleased. From start to finish, the communication and quality of service was above par. We’ve had difficulty with contractors in the past, not so in this case. We can honestly say that this is exactly how you run a business.

Our quote was provided promptly and all work was kept well within the quote.

The work was constant and on going. It’s a sigh of relief to have someone that shows up on time and every day. All the workers who came into our home were very polite and professional; a trait that is unfortunately not too common these days.

The end product was beyond our expectations. We are very pleased with the final results, to say the least.

We would have absolutely no reservations in recommending this excellent team of workers for anyone else’s home renovation.


I’ve had the pleasure of showing off my new spectacular bathroom reno’s to family and friends. Comments constantly are in reference to the uniqueness, quality and craftsmanship that has gone into transforming these spaces. The main bathroom now features a glassed in steam shower which I can say is worth the investment. Heaven on earth, actually.

I was so impressed with how reliable, knowledgeable, dependable and of course trustworthy Craig and Joe are, that I recently called them back for a basement reno. They created the zen space I was aiming for. A gym and yoga studio which is magazine worthy. Thank you J&C. I will be contacting you in the future and have all ready recommended you to several of my friends and family. Bravo.

Nicole & John

We recently completed a basement renovation. Joe and Craig provided excellent and quality service. They had great design ideas and provided opportunity for ongoing input throughout the project. We were having trouble finding pre-fab cabinets for a bar we wanted.

Joe and Craig were able to work with our design ideas and build a custom bar that was exactly what we wanted. All work was done on time and within budget. An excellent experience and the final results were amazing.

Rick & Cathy

I am writing to show my appreciation to Joe, Craig and associates for the beautiful job they did designing and finishing my basement.

In our initial meeting I was impressed that I not only got to meet Joe and Craig (the guys that were actually going to manage the project and do all the framing, insulation, flooring, construction of my custom bar and all the finished carpentry), but also Tom the electrician who took me through putting in lighting, outlets and all the wiring I needed for my home theatre. They all obviously knew what they where talking about and I was impressed with the detail they went into about their methods of construction and the quality of the products they would use.

The quote was ready in a couple of days and Joe came over to go over it with my wife and I. The quote was detailed with numbers of pot lights, plugs and dimmer switches, what materials were to be used in our shower, and how it was to be constructed. This all went a long way to put our minds at ease, as we of course, have heard the renovation horror stories. It was the detail and the obvious knowledge and the integrity of these guys that led us to choose J & C. Their price was not the cheapest or the most expensive but in the lower middle of the 5 quotes we got.

They were there on the day arranged for starting and immediately protected all the floors leading to the basement. The material arrived soon after and the project began. My wife and I both work, so our house was left in their hands. We were never bothered with phone calls and if something needed to be resolved they would come early so we had time to discuss it. The basement took about four weeks to finish and there was never a hitch.

We love our new finished basement so much that we spend most of our time in it, it is the most luxurious space in our house. We now have a steam bath, a wet bar and a fabulous home theatre. We had the house appraised before and after the basement was finished and it had appreciated by more than the renovation cost which both surprised me and of course made me happy.

Thank you Joe, Craig and company. If we need more work done you will be our first call.

I am writing this review after having Joe and Craig of jandccontracting, do a major renovation recently on my home. They renovated my entire kitchen, powder room and put hardwood everywhere else on the main floor. They were able to open up a load-bearing wall, did some beautiful custom kitchen cabinet work, and put up a gorgeous glass tile backsplash. They cleaned up the worksite every day, and I felt completely comfortable having them in my home while

I was away at work. They were extremely professional but also very personable – whenever I had questions, Joe was more than happy to answer them – I never felt like I was bothering him when I called. The renovation was completed on time! I often hear from friends that their renovations take much longer than they are originally told – I was so pleased that mine was done on time, as I had an event booked for the home soon after the end date, which I was able to hold in my beautiful, renovated home! There were no surprises in terms of cost, and I would very happily have Joe and Craig renovate my home again in the future!

Greg & Teresa W

To Whom It May Concern,

We have had the pleasure of having Joe Skinner and Craig findlay do two different basement renovations in two separate homes. Both homes included living space, bedrooms and full bathrooms. We have found their work professional and a to a high standard.

Both renovations involved multiple trades including electrical, plumbing and framing and general construction. Their worked with us to create a design concept and produced a product that made our basements a fantastic living space.

Of note, we were very pleased with the way the jobsite was left everyday. Care was always taken to make sure the space was clean and tidy to the best of their ability daily.

I am very confident in recommending J&C Contracting and would have no issue providing a reference if ever asked.

I just wanted to follow-up with you after the fabulous Paris kitchen renovation that was completed in December 2011. I am completely and overwhelmingly satisfied with the entire project!

Firstly, your personal referral to Joe Skinner and associates, as an installer/renovator was most appreciated, and I would highly recommend them to other customers. Joe Skinner and associates were exceptional contractors, and very professional in all aspects of the kitchen installation and family room renovations. They often went above and beyond the job, to optimize space; manage difficult appliance installation (stove fan), achieve end goals (rerouting TV cable wire so that it could be hidden from view), and coordinate sub-contractors in a timely manner to accommodate my busy work schedule. Generally, they were highly efficient, courteous and finished the job within the timeframes put forward in the initial contract.

In terms of Paris Kitchens general service and sales design – I have been most impressed by all of your front showroom staff, and especially, your senior sales designer, Ms Linda Casselman. The cabinetry was completed ahead of schedule, several weeks prior to the intended date of installation. Your showroom employees were all very helpful and courteous with respect to additional queries re: design/colours, flooring accessories, light and glass shelving options, and specific samples to help customize the design.

In particular, Linda was exceptional in terms of professional service and attentiveness to detail.

She has wonderful vision’, and was very thoughtful when it came to design renderings, optional wall configurations (glass shelving with overhead lighting as a stand-alone between the kitchen and family rooms); and customized consultation with the renovators / sub-contractors (electrician, painters) to optimize space/design. She was uniquely aware of my time constraints, and was available by email or mobile phone whenever there were queries or immediate decisions to be made.

In sum, I am extremely grateful for the dedicated customer service at Paris Kitchens, to my complete satisfaction. This also includes pending ‘after-installation service needs’, which were noted by Linda during an off-site post-reno visit. This included recent phone contact with the contractors to ensure installation of missing cabinetry that was either forgotten/needed to be reordered to complete the job (ie. kickboard on side of panty; slab on side of dishwasher).

Overall, I love to ‘cook’ in my new kitchen, which is a complete work of art and design….

Thank you!!!

Gilles L. & Marie H

Dear Sir/Madam,

We are writing this letter to express our satisfaction in our recent kitchen renovations, and especially to tell you about the great job the installers did with your product.

This project all started out with our association with Linda Casselman, and since we were very excited about the design she created for us, we decided to go with Paris Kitchens. Linda then suggested that we use the contractor services of Joe Skinner & Craig Findlay, saying that their work was highly recommended and of great quality, and she arranged through Paris Kitchens that they also be our kitchen cabinet installers. Of course we had other preparatory work to be done before the new kitchen could be installed, and Joe and Craig did a fantastic job of getting the room ready with new electrical work, lighting, plumbing, flooring, drywall, etc. The installation of the actual cabinets was done to perfection, and we are very happy with the end result.

Joe & Craig were always very efficient in their work, were always on time and showed up when they said they would. They always left a clean area after each working day. They were also very respectful of the fact that we were living in the house as they worked, and were very courteous and pleasant with us. They put a lot of effort and care in their work, and are very trustworthy workers, and we feel that they both went above and beyond the call of duty.

They worked very well with Linda, and seemed to make a great team, Throughout the renovations, Linda came by several times to check on the progress of the work, and it was very apparent to us that the three of them worked extremely well together, feeding off each other with ideas and solutions to any problems or questions, and that their ultimate goal was to make sure that we were pleased with our new kitchen.

It’s one thing to have installers who know how to tack on a cabinet to a wall, but its way more reassuring to have someone who cares and who knows all there is about general contracting and who can find solutions to any problems that arise in a renovation of this kind. We are very satisfied with their work and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is contemplating a similar project.

A big Thank You to Linda, Joe & Craig, and Darcy who also helped, for making our dream kitchen become reality.
