"Kevin, we are finally back home after the craziness of our first day of showings. The floor repair looks perfect, can not tell it was repaired at all. Fantastic work!!! And a big Thank You for getting it done so early, the showings for the rest of the day went off without a hitch, in fact, the house was sold the same day! Where can I send the cheque, or can I drop it off to you? We would love to have our testimonial on your site, your group really did go above and beyond for us. Thank you."
- Christopher Capowski, Stittsville

"Kevin was professional and courteous when running estimate to renovate our two bathrooms. He and his team scored top marks for punctuality, price, follow up and helpfulness. Kevin answered all our questions and found ways to solve difficult renovation problems. We are very happy with the quality of work that Kevin provided. Kevin is a true professional who takes pride in his work. We will definitely call him back, and highly recommend his services."
- Elena Milekhovets, Kanata

"I searched high and low for a company to repair our dining room "popcorn ceiling". I was so pleased to connect with Kevin and find a company that offers so much, from small jobs to large. As we were trying to book a suitable date for the repair, it was immediately apparent to me that Kevin has a great deal of respect for his customers and their needs. The ceiling is fixed, painted and looks better than ever. The work was done on time, as promised. I've already recommended Kevin to my sister."
- Susan Jones, Kanata

"I have twice trusted Kevin with my home while away on week-long vacations. On the rare occasion I left the beach to check my email, my inbox contained pictures from Kevin updating me on his progress. Nice touch. Relieved of worry about the house, my only concern was accidently poking myself in the eye with a cocktail umbrella. When I returned home from the first vacation, I had an amazing hardwood staircase. After the second trip, I had beautiful ceramic floors. Best of all, there was never any mess or hassle. Would I recommend Kevin to a friend? Without question. Then again, I might keep quiet if I had another vacation coming up. My kitchen needs a little work. Wouldn't want Kevin getting too busy"
- Roger C., Kanata

"I have used the Kanata Craftsman services in my home for a roof, a deck, as well as bathroom remodeling and window installation.

- Sean Delaney, Stittsville.

"I can't believe how good the cement parging repair turned out. It looks great!"
- Cynthia Fuentes, Dunrobin

"I appreciate Kevin's unobtrusive manner. He is prompt and dependable. From replastering my ceiling to finishing my wood stairs, Kevin's work is top-notch (and he doesn't leave a mess!). I have no hesitation in recommending him to my friends."
- Jennifer Seto, Glebe

"I own my own painting business and if our customers are looking for a home improvement project outside the scope of our services, I have referred them to the Kanata Craftsman Services. Referring another company could reflect poorly on my company if the customer is not satisfied but I am extremely confident in their services. My customers have been delighted with their work as have I after having my bathroom remodeled."
- Dave Gloss, Perfecta Painting, Ottawa

"We recently moved into a Condo and I had several doors that didn't close properly. I also wanted a ceramic kitchen floor and backsplash. We went to Florida for the winter and had the contractor complete the work while we were away. We were updated on progress throughout the job and sent pictures. We couldn't wait to get home to see and feel it. When we returned, the place was immaculate. You would not have known anyone had been in our condo had it not been for the nice work. Well done and thank-you!"
- Rollie O'Brien, Ottawa

"Over the years, I have used this service for small home repairs as well as installation of hardwood flooring in the living room and dining room and ceramic tile in the kitchen. I have been very pleased with the commitment and the quality of work. They treated my home as if it was their home. Their business card remains on my fridge and it is the first company I call when I need work done in my home."
- Judy Doxtater, Nepean

"It has been 12 years since I had the Kanata Craftsman finish my basement and I am still extremely pleased with the craftmanship and the additional living space added to my home. I have recommended them to several of my friends."
- Karen Beak, Kanata

"Kevin, as requested, It is with pleasure that I provide a reference for you. The closet you built looks like it has been there for the 49 years I have lived here. My neck is sore from constantly looking up at the great job you did on crown molding in my living room. It is not often you find a perfectionist in the trades but I am very impressed with your work and glad to see there are still some craftsman out there!"
- Bob Guigue, Ottawa

"Kevin, Paul and I really appreciate your expertise and approach to sharing it-it leaves us very confident with you. You took the time to investigate why our shingles failed early, explained the problem and recommeneded corrective action which is why we decided to go with you for a new roof. Thanks, we were very pleased with your crew and our new roof."
- Irene Jaroszuk, Kanata

"Kevin, thanks for the work you did to restore our cottage. It looks awesome."
- Teik Chye Ooi, White Lake

"Kevin replaced our bathtub, installed a shower window and re-tiled the shower stall. He also retiled the floor in the main bathroom and powder room. We found him to be pleasant to work with, conscientious, hard working and knowledgeable on the best materials available and installation procedures. We wanted a quality job and we believe that's what we received with Kevin. Kevin is open and flexible to customer's concerns and requests. With this job, Kevin demonstrated pride of workmanship."
- Bruce and Donna Brenot

"Guidance was provided on product availability and pros and cons of different types of flooring (ie., maintenance, durability and future resale appeal). On-site assistance to achieve best colour tones for flooring to match furniture/settings. (Samples were brought to our home so we could co-ordinate colours with our furniture in natural lighting). Jointly established time lines for material delivery and installation were met. Work on-site left clean and tidy both during and upon job completion. The professionalism and attention to detail and quality made this and enjoyable experience."
- Nancy and Dennis Crawford, Carp

"Kevin McGuire has undertaken a number of projects for me both large and small. Most recently he has undertaken to assist us with the completion of a very important project for our family, the reconstruction of our family cottage. Kevin has completed many very important aspects of the project for us. He has done a terrific job of finishing four very different and unique bathrooms including major tile work and the installation of a two-person walk-in shower using 6 large Halo Stone slabs to complete the walls of the shower. The floor of the walk-in shower and the rest of the bathroom have been beautifully finished so that one can walk into the shower without having to step over any sill whatsoever. Kevin has also completed two fabulous Mission style fireplaces for us in the living room and den of the cottage. In the den he has built and integrated two large bookcases with the fireplace. Kevin's attention to detail and to fine finishing literally make these fireplaces and bookcases works of art. Kevin has been involved in many other aspects of the completion of our cottage too numerous to set out in detail. His work has included hiring, supervising and working with other trades. Suffice to say that any work that Kevin has been involved in supervising or completing has been completed in a timely manner and to our total satisfaction. We look forward to continuing to make use of Kevin's many talents. He is a true craftsman."
- William J. Honeywell, Ottawa

"My wife and I hired Kanata Craftsman to carry out renovations to our home this winter. Primarily the project was to replace the very old carpet in the living room and dining room with hardwood flooring. Also to repaint the walls and ceilings of both these rooms as well as the family room. We also asked Kanata Craftsman to do a repair to the dining room ceiling and to replace the kitchen sink and tap. We were very pleased with the all work done by Kanata Craftsman. The new floor looks great. We were impressed with the professionalism of the tradesmen who did the work and with their conscientiousness and attention to detail. Our interaction with them was always pleasant. We anticipate needing some further work done on the house this summer and will not hesitate to hire Kanata Craftsman again."
- Barry and Jennifer Read, Kanata

"Kevin, after we were frustrated with a contractor for our second floor renovation, we were pleasantly surprised and delighted with contracting to you to finish our basement. I didn't fully understand when you explained you pay your employees by the hour and not by the job. You explained the difference between paying a contractor by the job which can lead to a "rushed job" vs. paying your employees by the hour so they take the time to ensure the job is done right. We didn't fully grasp this concept until we saw the workmanship and the professionalism of your staff. Thanks for a job well done and I can understand why you are so highly recommended!"
- Darryl and Jeanette Booth, Carp, Ontario

"We contracted KanataCraftsman to install hardwood floors throughout our bungalow and we are very happy with the work done by this company. Kevin came to our home with samples and to plan the strategy of doing the work while we lived in the home. He is reliable and thorough. At the end of the job he returned to remove garbage and ensure our satisfaction. We would call him again for other work and would recommend KanataCraftsman to others. Our new hardwood floors made us feel like we are in a brand new house."
- Denise Amyot, Carp, Ontario
