For the last 20 years we have been working with many high end contractors and custom builders but none of them could have been compared to Home Editions in any way. Home Editions' strong dedication for high end quality, paired with immaculate workmanship and responsiveness can not be topped by anyone. For the very same reason we always recommend Home Editions to our clients knowing they will be in great hands and their project will be completed on time, within the budget and the process will be stress free thanks to amazing hard working Dennis and his team. As a subcontractor working with Home Editions we are always treated with a great respect and we are thrilled we are part of Home Editions success team!

We could not be happier that our first major renovation was with Dennis and HomeEditions. Our two floor addition was extremely complicated and complex where the existing finishes were staying as is & could not be damaged. Looking back on the process we think there are 2 major criteria to keep in mind when working with a contractor these criteria are quality, and communication. From a quality perspective, Dennis and his team were a 10 out of 10. Alan on the team was truly exceptional with a tremendous amount of attention to detail in everything he did. Our designs were also not completely straight forward and the HomeEditions team took the time to understand what we are trying to do and work towards an outcome that we were looking for. Dennis also sticks by his work which brought us allot of confidence as the project progressed. The second criteria communication is extremely important when you go through a project as complex as ours where there are a thousand changes, surprises, and decisions that need to be made and you have to work with someone that is reasonable and flexible and can give you choices as you face these decisions. Dennis did just that, we felt that we were working with a consultant, and not just a builder, when we had to make a decision. We felt that we could share our ideas and he did as well and we always seemed to reach a good decision on how to proceed. I can’t understate this point around communications, its not something you think about before a project, but its something you can’t live without when you start it. Also, Dennis is not only capable but truly a really great person and we always felt that he cared about our project and our experience throughout it. This reflected in how he accommodated changes and worked with us to find solutions that work for us and him. I should also note that we lived in the house during the construction and Dennis and his team made every effort to accommodate that by putting up partitions, keeping the site clean, and being mindful that we are living in the house when they are doing their work. Overall I would say our experience with Dennis, Alan, and the HomeEditions team was excellent. They are extremely experienced in what they do and they were very flexible and accommodating to our needs and changes to the project as we went along. And last, but certainly not least, the final work speaks for itself, our extension came out beautifully and we are extremely happy with our new space.

We did a lot of research before deciding to move forward with Dennis, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Dennis and his team at Home Editions listen to their clients and provide excellent advice with unwavering professionalism. Dennis was very upfront in laying out the budget for our renovation and stayed within that budget while delivering high quality work. Though undertaking a major renovation is stressful at times, by not having to worry about delays, miscommunications, or hidden costs, Dennis and his team made the process much easier than we anticipated. The end result was stunning – we were very particular that we wanted the second story addition to our 100-year-old craftsman bungalow to look seamless, updated yet original. Dennis and his team exceeded our expectations. We were also very grateful that they were very considerate of our neighbours who still tell us how polite and accommodating the team was throughout and how pleased they are with the look of the house. I would not hesitate to recommend Home Editions and have already done so on multiple occasions.

I undertook a complete renovation of the main two floors of my house including the kitchen and a washroom. It required me to move out for five months so it was important for me to have confidence that it would be done on time, prior to losing my temporary rental. Dennis and his team were professional from the beginning. Showing up for every meeting on time, responding to any email I sent same day, and regularly following up. They provided me with a number of different ideas upfront which resulted in a much better layout than I had been thinking of. The renovation itself was painless. Done on time and on budget with a minimum of surprises. Any issues that cropped up along the way were handled professionally and quickly. Workers were on site daily and the site was kept organized and safe. Just as importantly, my neighbours found the renovation painless as well all things considered. Dennis's team went out of their way to ensure my neighbours knew who to contact if they did have any concerns. The quality of work done in my house is beautiful with all finishing touches having been thought of. I'm the only person I know who has undertaken a Reno of this size, moved in on time, with the house completed. No painters still working or counters still to arrive.

Dennis Benoit and his team were great. Our major reno started on the same day of the first big snow storm of the year when most people were not going to get to work on time. But not Dennis' team...there were two guys waiting for us on the door step at 8 am - ready to get to work! That first day set the tone for the rest of the job - the team was always on time, put in a full day's work, kept the site clean, did what they said they were going to do, great follow-through and honesty - they were forthcoming about unexpected problems they found - did not hide anything - and did what was required to make things right. They shared in our concerns as if it was their own home and worked through solutions with us. Our neighbours even stopped us on a couple of occasions to tell us how great our crew had been! Dennis answered every email from us within minutes! Always available and responsive - Dennis has his priorities straight - his clients come first. It was nice to hear all of Dennis' crew/tradespeople speak highly of him as the general contractor - with unsolicited comments like 'you got the right guy' & 'he's great' & 'you know the work will be done right'. It proved to be true. And, Dennis treats them his own people well and that speaks volumes. For these reasons, I would highly recommend Home Editions!

I am very pleased to recommend Home Editions Ltd. and Dennis Benoit. We first met Dennis and many of his contracting team in 2005 as they were adding a major addition onto the home of our neighbour, with whom we shared a driveway in Toronto. We were impressed by their courtesy, professionalism and the extra effort they made to ensure that our shared driveway was always clean and accessible. They also completely transformed our neighbour’s home into a modern masterpiece. Through 2006 as we began looking for a new home, Dennis accompanied us to look at a number of potential houses, providing us with valuable advice and budget estimates for possible renovations. During this time he earned our trust and respect. In 2007 following the purchase of our new 80 year old home, we immediately asked Dennis to work with us in developing drawings and ultimately to undertake the renovations. The project included a completely new kitchen, many new windows and doors, several new bathrooms, the removal of weight-bearing walls to expand rooms or improve access, significant electrical enhancements, and the installation of a new heating and air conditioning system. Part way through the project we changed the scope to include the complete renovation of the basement. Other than this addition, there were no changes to the original price. In fact Dennis went out of his way to ensure that we were satisfied by undertaking improvements to the existing house which were not included in our contract. We are very pleased with the result. Although we had no experience with projects of this magnitude, Dennis patiently supported us in making the many necessary decisions. He was knowledgeable, consistently patient, highly responsive to our calls and emails, and sensitive to our family and work pressures that on occasion impacted our ability to respond to his requests on a timely basis. We would sole source any future renovations to Home Editions without hesitation. Dennis Benoit is a credit to his profession and I have recommended him to both friends and acquaintances and will continue to do so. Sincerely, Colin Smith

After searching and interviewing numerous contractors last year we decided to hire Home Editions to gut, renovate and build an addition on our North Toronto home. We couldn't be happier with our choice! We enjoyed working with Tom P. on the architectural drawings and design because he took time to answer our questions and provided several valuable recommendations for us. As our main contact throughout the renovation, Dennis was a pleasure to work with because he's honest, responsive, and professional. Everyone on Dennis' team was courteous, knowledgeable and detail-oriented. Being new to our neighborhood we were especially concerned about the potential mess, noise and disruption that a major renovation could create for our neighbors. So, we were surprised afterwards when many of our neighbors told us how much they liked Dennis' team and how pleasant the experience had been for them. The project was completed on time and on budget, and the high quality of the materials and workmanship are very evident in the final product. We've been in our home for over 1 year now and absolutely love it. We regularly receive compliments from our friends and guests, and we've recommended Home Editions to several people we know.
