Renco and Terry Fraser have done renovation work for my mom and me for over 15 years
Terry and his team, Luc and Blair, were great. I had them repair some cracks in my foundation, replace some bricks and parging. They are hard workers and take pride in their jobs.
Frequently asked questions
We meet with hundreds of Ottawa homeowners each year. Here are some of the most common questions they ask:
Yes, all projects are covered by Renco’s transferable warranty program so you can be confident in your investment.
Plus if you sell your home the warranty is transferred to the next owner.
Yes it is (providing you don’t decide on additional work or changes). A Renco estimator will visit your proposed renovation site and discuss the project with you. We then provide a written estimate that exactly details the work we will do and what materials we will use.
In Ottawa, a building permit is usually required to renovate, demolish, construct or make permanent changes to the use of your home. Examples of projects requiring a building permit include:
- Load-bearing structures
- Plumbing updates
- Electrical changes
- Major home additions
Getting a building permit is for your safety and ensures that all work passes safety standards, keeping your home insurable.
We work with you to make the building permits process go smooth. We have done successfully hundreds of times and can prevent roadblocks that slow your project done.
For more information visit the City of Ottawa’s “Building Permits and Renovating” webpage.
Our job quote is our final price (see above), removing the possibility of “creeping” costs as the work proceeds. A Renco quote comes from a trained professional—it isn’t “loaded” to get the job (unfortunately, less scrupulous contractors will quote on a job knowing full well that the project will require extra costs that the homeowner doesn’t have much choice but to pay once the job is underway).
