Riverdale - Contemporary Kitchen Renovation

Project Overview

The Hansen's needed a complete renovation of their old kitchen that was beyond salvage. The scope of work included removing the wall between the dining room and kitchen, and a complete gut of the interior. An exterior wall was also rebuilt due to dry rot and termites. An interesting feature of this kitchen is the original wood flooring, which was refinished. The cabinetry was supplied by IKEA with Caesar Stone counters and a glass back-splash.

Client Testimonial

Our kitchen is now the nicest room in the house

"We had really let our old kitchen go and knew it needed a complete renovation. When Mark first saw it, he smiled and said, "well, there's nothing to save here". As the project got underway we uncovered a few surprises that often come with renovating a 100 year old house. The worst being on of the exterior walls of the kitchen was completely rotten and needed to be replaced. Mark and Ron took it in stride and made us feel comfortable knowing they had the experience to handle the situation. Renovating is no fun but whenever problems were encountered, Mark was reassuring and we never felt overwhelmed. The end result is a kitchen we are proud of.

I made it clear upfront that I was all about the details, and the fit and finish is excellent. Throughout the process, every supplier from the electrician to the plumber to the floor refinisher showed up on time and were pleasant to deal with. We have 2 dogs and this kind of scheduling was extremely helpful. And this speaks to the number one reason why we can recommend Ashton Renovations and that's communication. Every phone call was answered by Mark (I don't ever remember getting voicemail), every email was returned the same day, and every question and concern was dealt with promptly. In the world of contracting, this is rare if not unheard of."
