“We had the pleasure of working with Dave Martin of Renovation Science on our bathroom renovation. We have worked with other contractors in the past, and we can honestly say Dave outshines them all! He is extremely talented, professional, experienced and hardworking. He knows the importance of keeping the client engaged in the renovation process.

Dave respected our need to protect our hardwood staircase so he built protection for it. We appreciated his attention to keeping the workplace and our home clean. Dave was also able to take some design sketches and build a couple of very beautiful and creative recessed features. He even went to the trouble of building us a model of a recessed garbage can so that we could envision what one would look like.

We have had many compliments on our bathroom and Dave’s workmanship. We are already talking to him about our next renovation.  Our thanks to Dave and his passion for his work, and helping us realize our dream renovations!”

My husband and I purchased a “fixer upper” in the summer when we were expecting. We were on a tight timeline, wanting to have everything complete before our baby arrived. The renovations we asked for were no small undertaking. We requested a complete flip of the kitchen into another part of the house and a wall enclosure to make a third bedroom/ den. We also wanted the flooring on the entire first level redone.

David and his team did everything to get the renovations going as quick as possible and complete the project in a timely manner without compromising quality. A few issues did arise regarding sprinkler head requirements which David handled extremely well in order to keep the project moving forward. Despite the extra work that arose from this situation, he was able to stick to the initial budget.

But the quality we appreciated most about David was his professionalism. He is extremely easy to work with, responds to clients concerns quickly, and offers innovative solutions to potential problems. My partner and I are younger and I always felt he treated us with respect and took our concerns seriously. His team and the contractors he hired were also wonderful to work with.

Overall, David is friendly, hard working, goes out of his way to ensure his clients ideas are met, and is trustworthy. I couldn’t imagine having used anyone else for this renovation, which came at a very crazy time in our lives! I would not hesitate to use David again, or recommend him to others. Thank you Renovation Science for helping us find our dream home and making it ready for our little baby!

This contractor exceeded any expectations I had about my renovation. His estimate was bang on, he is extremely personable and easy to work with, and the quality of the finishes were excellent. His pricing was competitive with other contractors who quoted the job, only his estimate included higher end finishes. His attention to detail and his design ideas and suggestions were excellent, and the sub contractors he works with were all amazing and did quality work. He managed the permit process with the city, which made planning the renovation much easier. We recommend him without reservation. I was told by another customer prior to the renovation that nobody who works with this contractor is ever disappointed with the results. I realized this was true the first time I met him, and we are thrilled with the end results of our project. Hire Renovation Science for your renovations. You won’t be sorry.

What was I looking for and the most important takeaway from working with David?

He’s honest and a man of his word. Widowed for just over a year, I had decided that I was going to remain in my house and I was determined to finally undertake the renovations that had been had planned over the last 18 years. Making these kinds of decisions alone can be quite daunting, and made me feel quite vulnerable. Thank goodness searching Houzz led me to David and his company Renovation Science. Admittedly, not all of my Houzz searches had great results, but once I contacted David my gut told me to follow through.

I’m pleased as punch with the quality of work David and his crew did completely renovating my 1950’s kitchen and bath. Both rooms are wonderful and function exactly as I had hoped. He addressed any concerns I had throughout the process and worked in concert with my kitchen and bath designer (Genesis Kitchen), to create exactly the spaces I envisioned, with precision and attention to detail. The entire process was far less stressful than I ever anticipated, and would never have made a very good HGTV episode, since things ran very smoothly. Any delays encountered were due to external issues such as sourcing just the right tiles from Mexico (thank you Bullnose Tiles), and the subsequent need to wait for the transit via the world’s slowest burro delivery .

Once the tiles finally arrived, David realized that the tile pattern I had chosen did not line up with the placement of the new plumbing and completely nonplussed, he opened up the wall and repositioned everything to ensure symmetry. They are beautiful.

Now that the work is done I feel my home is more mine than “ours” and that is helping me to adjust to my new normal. David’s compassionate manner and immense integrity throughout this process has reinforced my faith in humanity. There are good people out there, and I have found one!
I highly recommend Renovation Science and I’ve already provided David with a list of exterior projects I would like him to price out for me to start work on next spring.

I hired David and Renovation Science to take over and complete a kitchen renovation project. I am very happy with the results.

David came into a project that was already a disaster. The original contractor (DK Conquest = Scammers and scumbags!) abandoned my project after demolishing my condo when I told them they needed to fix an intentional cost cutting materials change (specified material was in the scope of work contract and they tried to use a cheaper/lower quality version). David came into my project and not only cleaned up the complete disaster left by the previous contractor, but then managed to provide me with a beautiful and functional kitchen.

The project took a bit longer than I would’ve liked, but I understand the cause of these delays. All the materials needed to be re-ordered after the project was halfway done. These delays were a direct result of the previous contractors abandoning the project.

During the project, David was able to find innovative solutions to all the unexpected issues that arose. You can really tell his engineering experience helps with these problems.

At the end of the project, my condo was thoroughly cleaned and all the discrepancies were taken care of. The final invoice was right at the originally quoted value, apart from a couple add-ons I requested during the project.

I would definitely recommend David and Renovation Science to others!

I need more stars need a ten or eleven. David is a professional that excels in making things better. Arrived on scheduled time. Everything he touched he made better. He not only created an efficient new laundry room eliminatinating cement floors and cement walls, he installed tiles, cabinets, appliances , sink, lights, including sensor lights. A very talented man, and would highly recommend for any new job or renovation. Recommended from previous clients in our area, and they
too were completely satisfied.

David Martin did a fantastic job on our condo kitchen reno. He helped us through every step of the planning stage, and his attention to detail was much appreciated. The pics show how we went from a cramped space to a beautiful, more functional kitchen, that even includes a spot just for the cat! There were no surprises when it came to budget. Care was always taken to ensure the hallways and elevator were protected while bringing in and taking out material. We absolutely love our kitchen, and highly recommend Renovation Science.

David was referred to us as a result of work done at my Sister in Law’s home, where the overall finish and attention to detail was immediately noticed, on that renovation:

The quality of workmanship was excellent. David and his most pleasant crew installed a bathroom for us and again, the workmanship was faultless. Any minor touch ups at completion were done promptly and willingly. David worked with my wife in many aspects of planning for this project – again an excellent job, where his overall knowledge was very evident. David is a credit to his profession: He is polite, hardworking, very conscientious and we both were happy to have David on this project….and in our home. WELL DONE, David, and thanks so much for a job that was extremely well done throughout

Sincerely Clive and Pat Ellis

We had this company finish our basement and they did a great job. In addition, this company would go extra miles just to ensure their customers are satisfied. We really love the finished basement and it is really outstanding work! Highly recommend this company!

We hired Dave for an interior remodel, focusing on the kitchen and bathrooms. Dave was very professional (frequent updates throughout the project and going above and beyond expectations numerous times) and helpful (providing guidance and alternatives when required). We would recommend Dave for projects big and small.

We have our kitchen work on the fall of 2016, the transformation is amazing.The project was done with the utmost professionalism. We love the quality of the work. My son compared it with the kitchens on TV. I’d interview a few other contractors, Dave presented his quote with honesty and great knowledge of what we want. The project was on time and on budget. Most importantly for me was; I felt comfortable without worries during the project.

I found David Martin to be extremely professional and trustworthy. He was reliable and gave us lots of guidance and advice along the way. He completed an excellent job for us from start to finish. David was very flexible and went out of his way to be helpful. He happened to be working at our townhouse, when a pipe burst in the unit above ours and caused a lot of water damage to our unit. David removed whatever belongings and boxes were in our place, outside and away from the water, to minimize the damage. As a result, none of our belongings were damaged. We were fortunate that he was there and are very grateful for his actions.

I am very happy to recommend David and enjoyed working with him. We love our renovation!
