Kind words from our clients

Don’t just take our word for it.  Here’s what other people have to say about Heart of the Home!

"Thank you for the beautiful job you did and the great suggestions you gave us. We are so thoroughly happy with the results. It’s a new kitchen. You did a good clean up after you were finished."
Wilson and June
"Working with Heart of the home was the best decision we could have made. Dennis and Laura were a dream team! The instant we met they understood our needs and offered valuable input on both the best way to renovate and design selections. They worked with our budget, and respected the time they committed to and brought professionalism and humour into work everyday. Thank you for making our kitchen the heart of our home. Can’t wait to work together on the next project!"
"Thank you so much for the incredible renovation job you did on our 57-year Thorold home. We’ve lived here for 20 years and always wanted to make some major changes. Dennis and Laura came to see us and gave us wonderful suggestions! Laura has a great eye for design and colour, and Dennis visualized what a new kitchen could look like for us! We were able to pick out our granite countertops with Laura and Dennis which paired really nicely with the backsplash, cabinet refacing, and flooring. One of the perks was their dedication to the time schedule. Dennis said our total job of wall removal, kitchen renovation, new flooring, completely updated bathroom, would be done in three weeks. And it was! They cleaned up each night before they left our home so we could function in the evenings and weekends. Such trustworthy people that we were comfortable leaving any of the team in our home while we went out. We’re very happy they asked if they could share our ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos. We would highly recommend Heart of the Home as they were recommended to us and they will not disappoint! Call them now! "
