On Time and On Budget
I can't thank you enough for the amazing work you, your crew and your sub-contractors have done on my home.
You have converted an aged home into a modern place to be proud of.
The perfectionism shown in all the renovations is to be admired. The price was very reasonable for the kitchen cabinets, flooring, tiles, counter tops, windows, bathroom and kitchen sinks, plumbing, electrical installations and so much more. I really appreciated the added "little touches" you recommended at little or no cost.
If you noticed minor adjustments that had to be made, they were completed by your sub-contractors without complaint.
I did not lose ownership of my home while the crew was working in my home. They arrived and left at a reasonable time, all along being efficient and courteous. Each day the debris was removed so that there was no danger to me and my dogs.
Considering the size of my contract, I was very pleased that the work was started and completed on time and on budget.
Animals can recognize good people, and my dogs loved you from the beginning. When I need any other work done on my home, I will not hesitate to call you.
Job Well Done
I have now lived with my bathroom and laundry renovation for a few weeks and just wanted to say how very happy I am with everything. From the first time I spoke with Kris, through the estimate, planning, choosing materials, demolition and construction, Kris and the crew were fantastic. Kris answered all of my questions and was so patient with me, making sure I understood all that would happen. The quote was outlined in detail and explained carefully and the quote was very reasonable.
Kris and crew always showed up when they said they would. They were as unobtrusive as possible. They were careful around my property and cleaned up every day. Kris directed me to great people to select my tiles and plumbing fixtures and pulled all of my ideas together into a great little laundry room and a beautiful, relaxing and functional bathroom. My bathroom turned out to be everything I had imagined.
Kris was always easy to get in touch with and followed up with me on a regular basis. I have already recommended his company to my cousin and will recommend him highly to anyone else who needs a renovation done. Thanks so much Kris and crew, I am so happy with your work. As soon as I save up a bit of money, you will hear from me again for a few more projects! Thanks again for a job well done.

Honesty, Integrity, Quality Workmanship
What an incredible transformation my small eighties bathroom has undergone, thanks to Kris Bodchon, his staff and trades people! It is indeed a sight to behold. My bathroom was completely gutted by Kris' very capable and efficient staff member Rich, as well as rewired and replumbed according to code by licensed master electricians and plumbers. Subsequently, everything was replaced from the bathroom fixtures and accessories to the ceiling and floor tiles. Kris did not install anything in my bathroom that he would not feel comfortable installing in his own. In fact, he went to great lengths in finding me the same vanity that he used in his own home. He installed quality products and used quality materials. Kris was very adept in striking a balance between allowing me the freedom to make my own choices and offering his recommendations when necessary. I soon found myself relying on his expertise regarding everything, including design suggestions such as choosing just the right paint colour and porcelain tile!
Throughout the entire process, Kris repeatedly would check with me to see if I was pleased with the phase of development at hand. His favourite phrase was "I want you to be happy with your new bathroom, Steph." I am extremely happy with my new bathroom.
If you value honesty, integrity, affability and quality workmanship, then I urge you to call upon Kris Bodchon of Homestyle Renovations. Not only will you gain an impeccable renovator for your current project, but you will find that you will want him to revisit your home for future renovation projects -- I know I do. Kris' efforts have inspired me to continue with my home renovations.
Kris, thank you so much for providing me with a wonderful renovation experience. I appreciate that you went the extra mile every step of the way. Thank you for valuing me, your client, as much as you valued my bathroom. You, your staff, as well as your trades people's professionalism is unsurpassed by any renovator/contractor that has worked on my home during my 31 years as a Windsor homeowner. I greatly appreciated your and your team's punctuality, accessibility, calm and friendly demeanor as well as everyone's sense of humor throughout the renovation. You and every member of your team were incredibly helpful in providing suggestions regarding other aspects of my house as well. Your company motto, “Communication and quality is the key to a job well done," truly reflects who you are.
Kept the Worksite Clean and Safe for Family
A BIG job well done! We highly recommend Kris Bodchon to anyone that's looking for a dependable and honest contractor. Kris and his crew took on a big job that would take three months to complete. It was a 14x24 addition, upper and lower level: in the lower level a full bath, utility and sauna room. In the upper, a master bedroom and bathroom, and upgrade of an existing bathroom. We interviewed 9 contractors. Kris' quote came in the middle. It was easy to understand and he had 8 references for me to call and he also had a website. With everything looking positive, we decided to hire Kris. To be honest, we were a little nervous because of his age. But through the renovations he proved to us that not only does he know how to make things run smoothly, organized, and keeping the work site clean and safe for our family, Kris and his crew were a fun group to be around. We lost three weeks due to bad weather and other complications, but Kris still managed to complete the project on time as he promised. We are two happy and satisfied customers and wouldn't think twice to hire Kris again for any future renovations.
Thanks again Kris!

Professional in the Highest Degree
We have recently had extensive renovations to our basement, from the cement blocks outward, by Kris Bodchon of Homestyle Renovations. From the very first instance, Kris has been professional in the highest degree. I sent him an e-mail requesting information on a Sunday morning, and he called to book an appointment within two hours. He was out to look at the basement the next day, had his trades in to meet with my husband the following day, and presented us with a quote the day after.
While Kris’ quote was not the lowest, it was also not the highest. We appreciated the added suggestions he made which made our renovation even better than we had thought. When it was discovered there was a leak in the basement, he had his waterproofing contractor in to assess the situation within hours. All of his trades were very professional and were here when we were told they would be here.
Our renovation decision was due to the fact that our daughter and her family are moving back to Windsor and will be living in the basement. As her bedroom was already there, it was a matter of building a room for the baby, renovating a living area for them and totally gutting and rebuilding the three piece bathroom. Kris was very helpful in the selection of the tile for the new bathroom, and it turned out looking very elegant.
When the work was completed, everything was done from pot lights to painting. All we had to do was move the furniture. Kris even installed two baby gates at the stairs and baby-proofed all electric sockets. Just the extra touch which shows he cares.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kris and his company to anyone looking to renovate and will call him again when we need any further renovations done to our home.

Excellent Renovation Experience - WOW!!!
That is the best way I can describe my experience with Homestyle Renovations. Kris and his crew were punctual, efficient, tidy and a pleasure to deal with.
The job they did on my bathroom reno was way over and above my expectations. Kris' idea to mosaic a border of floor tile into my tub area was genius! It looks fabulous and really adds that special touch.
From start to finish, an excellent renovation experience with some very talented professionals.
Thank you again Kris.
Sincerely, Cathy S.
I would like to recommend Kris Bodchon of Homestyle Renovations highly. He has completely renovated my kitchen to my present dream kitchen.
It was really a fluke that I spotted an ad for him in our local paper and called him. I, quite honestly, was leery about him due to his youthful-sounding voice and I even asked him on our initial phone call how old he was and was quite concerned about his experience etc. He showed up when he said he would and gave me his honest opinion about things and said he would drop by the next day with an estimate of what the costs would be. He seemed to be very honest and understanding of what I wanted done.
In the meantime, I had other contractors come in and not one of them satisfied me with their plans and suggestions. Kris’s quote was middle-of-the-road price range and he has proven to be an excellent choice. He has shown up every day he said he would be here and his “tribe” of workers and skilled labourers have all been neat and clean and polite.
Kris Bodchon has proven to be an excellent choice. I have been more than satisfied with his work. He has done major work in my kitchen - take out all walls and ceiling and floor and replaced all. Had new cupboards installed and granite counter tops. He has supervised and done himself much of the labour and in a very timely manner.
If anyone would like to see my finished product (kitchen), you are more than welcome to come check it out.
As If He Were Working on His Own Home
We are so very glad that we chose Kris and his team for our bathroom renovation. We were initially impressed with how quickly Kris responded to our request for a quote. I had emailed the request, and before I was even off of his website, the phone was ringing. He was careful in making sure to bring his plumber with him for the quotation, and the two of them spent a great deal of time going over every aspect of the renovation. We were impressed with the amount of thought that was taken just in preparing the quote.
Once the work began, we were very pleased with the level of care taken with the project. Kris worked extremely diligently, as carefully as if he were working on his own home. We were struck with how kind and quiet every member of the team was, and found everyone to be very tidy and considerate. We appreciate that Kris used a team of experts for every part of the renovation (i.e. plumber, electrician, heating/cooling, etc.) to ensure that everything was completed properly. Kris also respected the timeframe which he initially laid out for us.
We are extremely pleased with the quality of Homestyle's work. Everything looks fantastic, and the job was performed in a professional and tidy manner. We would absolutely use this company again, and can't thank them enough for the wonderful work they did!

Home Renovations from a Very Satisfied Customer
I write this with high regards and recommendations of Homestyle Renovations as a company to use for your next home renovations.
For me, this was a third major contracted project, including the building of my home, that required the service of a contractor. My experiences with my first two contractors had been from ‘Minimally Satisfactory’ to a ‘Serious Nightmare.’ Needless to say, I was prepared for this venture.
I asked six different contractors to quote, three of which did not even come to my home but simply assumed they knew what I wanted; knew what my space looked like; and determined their price as such.
One contracted came to my home; told me he was a perfectionist only to contradict himself during the same conversation and say “well; you know it can’t be perfect!” His price was unreasonably high for such lack of “perfection.”
Another contractor who visited had some great ideas of how HE wanted my renovation to look … my ideas didn’t matter.
Then I opened the PennySaver one night and saw an ad for a company I had never heard of, Homestyle Renovations … AND he was a member of the Better Business Bureau. I phoned to make an appointment and it was scheduled for the very next morning!
This was the day I met Kris Bodchon of Homestyle Renovations. This young man displayed a greater level of experience, creative intuition, and ability to visualize MY ideas than any of the other more well-known contractors.
Kris’ input allowed me to use my ideas and grow them into something even better through his suggestions and expertise! Throughout the whole project, I was kept abreast of the progress; involved in any changes that were required due to the existing construction of my home; as well as provided with the respective options to ensure my satisfaction.
The workers were always respectful and more importantly PROMPT. When Kris said that a tradesman would be here at a certain time, he was here at that time. The work area was always kept quite tidy and safe, considering all the work being done. And the renovated area was totally cleaned for the final presentation.
Kris’ quote for the renovation was on the median of the six quotes I received, so his price was reasonable. His lead time was quoted at 13 weeks BUT he completed the job in just 9 weeks!
Hiring Kris Bodchon of Homestyle Renovations for my renovation was an excellent choice of contractors and I will certainly call him again for any future renovations! When it comes to local contractors, he is certainly one of a kind!
