Mr. J.P.C.
Multiple home renovation jobs

"Renco has done several jobs at our home. The quality of the work was very good—or I wouldn’t have them back. I’m a woodworker myself, so I have a better than average idea of whether a repair has been done properly or not. I especially liked the(...)

Clean, organized, great communication

The work was done promptly, mess was kept to a minimum and we were kept informed of progress. Terry returned calls right away and went out of his way to make sure our foundation job was well completed. A very well-run organization.

Frequently asked questions

We meet with hundreds of Ottawa homeowners each year. Here are some of the most common questions they ask:

Do repair projects and new renovations come with a warranty?2019-03-16T17:14:41+00:00

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.


Is the Renco written job quote the same as our final bill?2019-02-14T20:31:20+00:00

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.

Is a City of Ottawa building permit required?2019-06-07T19:27:19+00:00

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. 



Another contractor gave us a lower quote. Why is yours higher?2019-01-15T21:35:35+00:00

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).
