Having used Kerrison Contracting for a few smaller jobs and experiencing the craftsmanship and quality of work first hand - this was a no brainer.
We still went through the quotation process with Kerrison and other contractors for this project - and again it was clear - Kerrison Contracting is always the right choice. (We won’t be quoting out any of our projects - the call will always go direct to Fred from now on for the record). PRICE QUOTED WAS THE PRICE PAID We worked with Fred to match our budget to our vision. I have to add Fred speaks my wife’s language (it’s uncanny) and he was able to bring new life to even the most carefully crafted plan. Fred just has this ‘way’ of seeing the vision and expanding on it. No doubt the years of experience and high calibre of work he holds himself and his crew to are the reason he has a lot of great suggestions and ideas. The real magic is how he paints the picture so you can understand it - of course the finished product exceeds even the idea. I have to send a shout out to his team as well. Jerry & Jeff were there everyday 8:00am without fail. Our kids looked forward to seeing them every day over the 4 weeks they were with us. They became like honoured guests in our house and were always great with the kids and their questions. We had no problem leaving them our keys and access to our house when we were away. Trust is certainly something not easily given but Jerry Jeff & Fred earned every bit of it. We are overly impressed by the finished product (see pics) and it was hard to write this review because we don’t want the secret to get out. Our friends have seen the work the Kerrison crew did and they’ve already reached out to Fred for their projects. We’re planning on doing our mudroom fall 2018 so don’t schedule a project through then please!

They started and finished the project on the scheduled time, did impeccable work within the quoted budget. The worksite was clean and well organized. They were very trustworthy; I provided a key to the house for them to come and go when we were not at home. A painless experience.

I have contracted work to several companies over the last 15 years and can honestly say this is the best contractor I have worked with. High quality workmanship, attention to detail, open and honest communication and timeliness of work resulted in a great experience. Fred deals with "surprises" openly and with a partnership mentality, discussing solutions and providing expertise. My wife and I could not be happier with the work completed and with the overall experience of working with Kerrison Contracting.

Fred has rebuilt my house...literally! We began with the ceilings and worked our way down to the new hardwood floors. I'd come home to newly painted walls, bathroom & light fixture changes, walls being moved, carpet installation, new wallpaper, installed appliances (dishwasher, central vac, garage door, washer dryer....you name it) and anything else to upgrade a home. His woodworking ability in building a pantry, that included really neat sliding doors, filled my need perfectly. I trust in Fred and would have no one else handle my home renovating requirements.

I have used the services of Fred Kerrison, Kerrison Contracting for a number of different projects around my house. Both times I found Fred’s work to be of the highest standards.
Fred was always willing to listen to my ideas and to offer some of his own as possible options. More often than not, his ideas were the ones we went with in the end. Now I don’t even offer much instruction because I know that the work will be completed in a professional manner and I will be more than satisfied with the results.
I did not hesitate to leave him to a project by giving him access to my home in my absence as he was always sure to clean up at the end of each day and most thoroughly at the end of the project.
Fred has done numerous projects for the various members of my family and I have continued to recommend him to friends and neighbours. I would definitely use him again in the future.

We have hired Fred Kerrison several times in the past two years to do work on our house and have been very pleased with the quality of his work. Fred did our entire front entrance last year, including a new floor, beautiful woodwork, mouldings and put new windows in. He has also refinished our hardwood floors, installed beautiful oak stairs and put a new sink in for us.
We are very happy with the work that Fred has done for us and would recommend him to our friends. He is very professional and does quality work.

Fred has completed a variety of challenging projects in and around my century home over the past decade, always to my complete satisfaction. He is a skilled craftsman and the quality of his work is outstanding. Most importantly, Fred's primary goal is to have a satisfied customer, and he works extremely hard to make sure that's achieved. I have recommended Kerrison Contracting many times and will continue to do so.

We've had Fred Kerrison do a number of projects for us, both big and small. He approaches all the same way...with skill, a strong work ethic, imagination and passion for his work. His efforts have helped make our house a home. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wanting to improve their home in any way.
