We had Montgomery Renovations renovate our kitchen and replace/refinish flooring in our home. We live in a bungalow so eventually, we had emptied our entire main floor. Each night, they would leave our home tidy and clean. Russell and his staff were always kind, polite and professional … a pleasure to have in our home. Russell always had time for our questions and concerns and was able to put our minds at ease. The workmanship and attention to detail is incredible. Even though we added things as we went through, Montgomery Renovations completed the job on time. Thanks for making our renos much less painful than anticipated.

Russell came to the rescue when my original contractor abandoned me without notice. He came highly recommended and I couldn’t have been more fortunate! His keen eye and excellent taste, not to mention his attention to detail was everything I was looking for and expecting. Reliable and punctual every time. Not cheap but you certainly get what you pay for!

I cannot say enough about my experience with Montgomery Renovations and look forward to the next project he will do for us. It was important to me to be able to have a crew in my home that I could leave and go to work and come home and not once had to clean up behind them. My home was the way I left it in the morning when I came home in the evening. Russell and his employees were at all times professional. Russell’s knowledge and idea’s in the industry were excellent, the quality of all employee’s involved was more than I expected. Russell himself is a perfectionist (as am I) and very detail oriented so we worked very well together. He met all my deadlines and stayed within the quote unless I requested additional work or items to be added. He was very fair to deal with and I had no surprises with my final invoice. I would highly recommend his company to anyone looking for quality workmanship for the quoted price.

Russell and his team renovated the laundry room and powder room in our house and we were thrilled with the results! Russell is great at listening to the clients’ wants and needs and gives great design ideas and suggestions. The tear-out was done efficiently, and the areas were left spotless at the end of each day. They were meticulous with the details and took the time to fix previous shoddy drywall work and the closet door. We highly recommend Montgomery Renovations to everyone.

We used Montgomery Renovations to completely renovate our bungalow. This included the entire main floor as well as finishing the basement. It was a huge project (5 months) and we totally appreciated Russell and his team throughout the process. Russell pays attention to the details. Since showing off my newly renovated home I have had 3 different individuals say that they can tell this home was completed by a professional who cares about his work as the workmanship is outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend Montgomery Renovations to anyone! Thanks Russell, Tyler, Mike and Eric for all the work. We love our “new” home!

Montgomery Renovations took on the challenge of our bathroom renovation and despite the time crunch that I imposed on them they were able to complete the job beautifully. It looks so amazing. They were so professional. The site was always spotless at the end of the work day and they always kept us updated with everything that was happening. I would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend them to anyone. In fact people have been asking “who did you get to do your bathroom – it is amazing!”

Russell Montgomery of Montgomery Renovations built a wall unit included lower cabinets and upper bookshelves. We met to discuss what I wanted and he sent me his sketch through e-mail. He captured exactly what I wanted and then built and installed it to perfection. Russell Montgomery is very competent and professional in his work and interactions with clients and I would highly recommend him. He did a great job and would most definitely work with him again.

This was our second project with Montgomery Renovations. After our first experience, we had no hesitation about hiring Russell and his team again for a significant kitchen/main floor renovation. It is evident that the team at Montgomery Renovations take pride in their craftsmanship. Their work is meticulous, no detail is overlooked; and the team treated our home as if it were their own. Both projects were completed on time, with as little disruption to the household as can be expected. Working with a challenging space, we consulted closely with Russell during the design and planning stages, which yielded some very valuable suggestions. Montgomery Renovations then executed the project with professionalism; the end result being a more functional living space that fully captures the look and feel we were seeking.

We had hired Montgomery Renovations for a bathroom renovation. Russell and Tyler did an amazing job – right from the plans until the finish, their work was exceptional. We found that their ideas in the pre-planning as well as when the work was in progress for changes very helpful and the outcome of our bathroom amazing. We ended up doing all three bathrooms. As with any renovation when you start opening walls, you never know what issues you will find. We did have some minor issues but they were able to fix them. We would not hesitate to recommend Montgomery Renovations for any job. They not only are professional, but they do take pride in their work and ensure things are completed correctly.

We are 99% finished with our 2015 major home renovation – our second reno with Montgomery Renovations (MR). We just can’t say enough wonderful things about Russell and Tyler. Once again, MR provided a competitive quote – this time to renovate our main floor and second floor consisting of the installation of hardwood floors, custom woodwork in our dining room and living room and painting throughout the main floor and second level. MR’s workmanship and attention to detail is beyond reproach. With the completion of this reno, MR will have remodeled almost every inch of our home. We are seriously considering renaming our abode “Montgomery Manor”. Russell and Tyler were committed to the job from start to finish. They are so pleasant to deal with, and took our requests for “extras” in stride. We have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend MR for any home renovation.

We are thoroughly impressed with Russell and Tyler Montgomery!

We recently bought a house which required renovating the entire main floor (kitchen, bath, bedrooms, living, dining and family rooms). Russell was easy to work with throughout the entire project! He communicates exceptionally well and keeps you up to date every step of the way. Every project has its’ challenges and surprises, and ours certainly had a number of them hiding behind walls, ceilings and floors. He was constantly having to respond to those surprises and providing us with the information we needed and options to consider in order to make the appropriate decisions.

His design ideas are excellent… he thinks of everything, is extremely practical and is very good at providing options. This is extremely important as he helps you to think of details that you may not consider but that will make the final solution a much better experience!

Russell and Tyler operate with integrity, are always professional and very attentive to details. Given the number of projects we have done in the past, I can honestly say that I know of no one that works to his level of quality regardless of the solution chosen. His integrity, creative thinking and commitment to quality is undeniably what I value the most. We raved about him to many friends and family who are lining up to have him quote their jobs.

Overall, our experience was excellent! All of what I’ve described above is what I believe distinguishes Montgomery Renovations from others. Thank you Russell for taking on such a significant project and for delivering beautiful “living” solutions that have turned this house into our home! Your footprint can be seen everywhere!

Montgomery Renovations were recommended to us through the interior design group working with us on our home renovations. They spent many months ( with breaks in between) renovating our home. They worked very well with us and the design team on this very large project. They were pleasant, respectful and very tidy. They were able to very competently do essentially all the work pertaining to carpentry, electrical, plumbing, floorinig, painting and this included custom carpentry and brick work (fireplace for example). They have been readily availalbe for follow up questions and assistance with any “touch ups” required after the work was completed.

I have had Russell from Montgomery Renovations complete a number of projects for me and have always been thoroughly impressed with his work ethic and ability. I would highly recommend him to complete a friends renovations and have done so as well. He has just recently completed a decking project for me and it turned out as I requested and looks great. I have this company booked for future work and would trust no one else to work on my home.
Thanks Russell!

We had a window installed in a basement room where no window had existed before. We appreciated that Montgomery Renovations were willing to do this small 3 day job and understood that we were going to try to do the rest of the basement reno on our own. The workers were polite and professional and did an excellent job cleaning up from the work. We would consider a quote from Montgomery for any future projects we take on.

After 25 years in our house we wanted our master bedroom ensuite bathroom renovated. With Russell’s expertise we were able to plan and design a newer updated room . He began by removing the existing structures down to the studs, before rebuilding our new bathroom which included: retiling the floor, shower walls and floor, and the tub surround; building and staining a new vanity and counter top; installing a glass surround shower stall; and repainting the walls and ceiling.
Throughout the process Russell was open to suggestions and changes we wanted to make to the original design. He was always very accommodating and willing to incorporate our ideas into the plans.
We are extremely happy with the results and will definitely work with him again on future projects.

I have hired Montgomery Renovations several times for various jobs in my home. The basement movie room and craft centre is the envy of many. We have had a bedroom turned into a library and have also had the master bathroom and walk-in closet transformed into a beautiful area.

I trust this company to complete the job as specified in the planning process. They are always on-time, they meet deadlines and work within our budget.

I have a lot of design/build ideas and when I relay them to the contractor, he is extremely helpful about letting me know if they will work. If not, he is more than happy to suggest alternatives which are always better and more economical.

He works with integrity, precision and a sense of pride. He is very careful to keep the area clean and never goes home leaving a mess behind.

I would highly recommend this company.

We initially used Montgomery Renovations to install a new kitchen around 10 years ago. They are meticulous to details and are easy to work with. I soon learned I never had to be concerned about any projects I gave them, as they worked hard using their experience, initiative and creative skills. I never had to worry. They have since built a work out room , basement movie area with built in cabinetry, redesigned our guest bedroom and remodeled a fireplace. I did not hesitate to give them the contract to rebuild a new medical office for my husband too. They worked well with the interior decorator and architect to meet deadlines,budget and produce an amazing end result. Montgomery Renovations are always available for even fitting in small jobs that need doing too.

Very professional. The contract was very detailed and clearly indicated what materials the contractor would supply and what we would provide. He answered all questions fully and made many useful suggestions. The work was done on time and on budget. The final result was excellent. There was nothing that was anything less than perfect, he was very detail oriented. He completely gutted and rebuilt the bathroom and we are having him back for the kitchen. Highly recommended.

I have used Montgomery Renovations on a regular basis for more than 20 years. The Company has been responsible for the complete renovation of some of my kitchens and bathrooms as well as the design and installation of several wine cellars. In all instances, the work performed has exceeded expectations and the costs have been pretty close to the original estimates.
Montgomery Renovations is owned by a gentleman named Russel Montgomery who is meticulous, dedicated and a total “professional”. Whenever a project is undertaken, there is a work ethic that comes through that I have rarely seen elsewhere – in addition, the job is never ‘complete’ until such time as the final clean-up has taken place and the end result is to all parties total satisfaction.
I would have absolutely NO HESITATION in recommending this Company and would be willing to provide a further reference if required.

Montgomery Renovations Inc. have completed a number of projects for us including a kitchen renovation, a bathroom renovation and installation of new windows in our home.
We always receive a detailed and accurate estimate and Russell is always willing to answer any questions we have. Start and finish dates are always adhered to and there has been very minimal delay. The projects have always come in on budget. If there are any surprises, Russell lets us know early and will discuss the issue with us.
Montgomery Renovations are very knowledgeable in all areas of renovation including electrical work, plumbing, tiling and essentially all areas of construction. All work is done neatly and efficiently.
We are so impressed with the professionalism and quality that we would not use any other Renovation company to do work in our house.
Montgomery Renovations make you feel like you are the most important customer they have ever had.

What you can expect from Montgomery Renovations? Simply put – attention to detail. If you are into things done fast like burgers from a drive thru or things made and priced cheaply then don’t call Montgomery. If on the other hand you enjoy savoring the finer things and feel a sense of pride in your home ownership then Montgomery may be the right fit for you and well worth consideration. What is the process like? You thought long and hard about this project. It may have been on the back burner for months or even years. You should be prepared to wait just a little longer, a week or two for an initial meeting with Russell. Then another week or so to allow for accurate quote. But it’s worth it! Russell will ensure when you meet you will have his full attention, no phones ringing or emails buzzing. It’s your time. You will quickly begin to enjoy the intuitive and interactive style Russell brings to the table. No doubt you will do your due diligence so when you review the quote having done your shopping it is unlikely Montgomery will be the cheapest. You can however be confident that the quote is accurate and incorporates the use of materials consistent with your expressed wishes and will be completed with Montgomery’s perfectionist approach without surprises. When I say surprises I am referring to the kind that can see the budget spiral out of control. Once booked in and your project underway you will quickly see your dream beginning to take shape. During the process you will find everyone associated with Montgomery courteous and clean. They will be respectful of your time frames and make no promises they are not prepared to keep. Most importantly they will over communicate, a great advantage for you, keeping you in the loop on a daily basis with respect to progress and what’s next. Your role in terms of selections including such things as, tile, paint colors, plumbing fixtures etc. will be laid out with adequate time frames so you can enjoy your castle being transformed and have a sense of pride about how personally you were involved along the way.
Russell Montgomery and his crew have completed work for our family over the past ten years. There is not a room in our fifty year plus sprawling bungalow which has not been touched and in most cases transformed. From complete demolition, redesign and rebuild of the kitchen and baths to simple projects like hardwood, trim and paint in a couple of bedrooms each job was masterfully completed with a minimum of disruption. These experiences over this time frame leave us well positioned to provide this glowing review because simply, it’s true.

Russell Montgomery has done three major projects for us: he installed and finished a new kitchen (including paint), he rebuilt our rec room and adjacent areas (including insulation, walls, doors and lighting) and he replaced all the windows in the house. We know his work well.
Russell possesses a rare combination of talents. He is highly skilled in all the trades required for renovation—carpentry, electrical, and plumbing. In each area, he knows exactly how the job should be done, and he produces work of the highest quality with quiet efficiency. But more than that, when questions arise regarding choice of materials such as e.g. windows or lighting fixtures, Russell’s advice has unfailingly resulted in the best possible additions to the house. He knows what is available, and the plusses and minuses for each of the various possibilities. Finally, Russell has a good sense of aesthetics. When there is a question of color choice (or paint type), his suggestions about what will look good given e.g. the lighting conditions, have worked out very well.
We have found Russell’s rates to be fair, i.e. neither unusually high or suspiciously low. Given the quality of workmanship involved, that amounts to a bargain in every case—he is excellent.

They completely renovated my kitchen, 2 bathrooms, storage area and backyard deck, etc.
The work was meticulous and of the highest quality.
They are extremely trustworthy. They had a key to my home so that they could come and go as they needed to without my being there. Nothing ever went missing and I always felt safe when I was alone in my home with them.
I have given them permission to use my name as a reference.
Now, I will only use them because when they do a job, I know it will be done right.

Russel Montgomery is the most competent and reliable craftsman ,and that is what he is , that we have ever used
We have used his skills,which are many , for over 20 years
No question a gem of a guy
No he is not a relative but he does feel like a member of our family after so many years of great service
This particular job in 2011 was rebuilding our very large and elaborate deck but he has done many more things than that for us over the years
