Toronto Kitchen Contractor

Toronto kitchen contractors who can both accommodate the design & build of your new kitchen along with the necessary renovation services and experience to build out your kitchen properly to avoid any costly change orders that may come up along the way is the best consideration a home owner can make when deciding on how to proceed to renovate their kitchen and/or home.  

Toronto Custom Concepts often sees our kitchen clients try and go a cheaper approach on selecting a kitchen contractor only to find out the hard way that cheap sometimes is MORE costly in the end than taking into account all factors from the beginning.

Think of this when you are evaluating kitchen contractors...make sure you ask very specific questions about previous projects where they have encounter some issues and challenges and ask how they addressed them.  Ask about situations around working with existing mechanicals such as plumbing, electrical or structural issues and how they addressed those issues.   Many kitchen contractors low-ball an estimate just to get a job but they have alternative intentions by 'change-ordering' their clients down the road, so ensure you ask about their change-order process.   Also ask if your kitchen contractor offers a fixed bid estimate opition with a percentage allocated for overage to limit your cost exposure and risk.   If a kitchen contractor can not properly estimate a job within 10% then that puts you at much more risk for project challenges (all things considered aside from unforeseen issues that come up out of the contractor's control).

Toronto Custom Concepts works with you by clearly communicating to you various design considerations and potential issues that may arise in advance to set the right expectations.   We will even help to provide you with a list of considerations to ask any kitchen contractor to make sure your kitchen renovation project will be a success!

Toronto Staircase Companies

TCC partners with the top Toronto staircase companies when it comes to entire home renovation projects that require new staircases to be installed in where we have removed the old staircase.  We have completed many renovation projects in which we have both opened up a main floor for a new staircase and we have also closed up a main floor opening with the installation of a new staircase.  

We can either do the new staircase installation ourselves or we also partner with a select group of partners who specialize in staircase wrought iron fabrication for pure custom one-off designs.

Toronto Wall Removal

This Toronto wall removal project included an entire first floor of a 2 storey having all of its interior walls being removed.    As you can imagine, many of the internal walls were load bearing, so we had to work with our engineer on the new drawings and the City for the permits/inspections.   The net result of opening up the entire 1st floor outside of upgrading the staircase, was to incorporate 3 massive I-Beams, multiple LVLs and some steel posts in which we were able to nicely conceal.

For more information about Toronto CC load bearing wall removal projects, please make sure you click here for more information about it on our website.

Our Oakville custom furniture collection has seen this beautiful addition added to it.   This custom one-of-a-kind live edge walnut hutch has perfectly mitred corners.    The live edge profile runs down both sides of the furniture unit in a stunning waterfall design that allow continuity from all angles of the piece.    The wood is offset with white glass pull-out drawers and cabinet doors.   The glass shelves are frameless for a very contemporary look.   Talk to us about your next custom furniture project or just stop by our Oakville showroom to discuss your custom furniture idea.
