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.

How experienced is the Renco team?2019-02-14T20:30:25+00:00

Most of our personnel have many years of experience and have professional qualifications in their individual disciplines. Our apprentices, of course, have less experience but are always supervised by senior trades people. Our team counts licensed electricians, plumbers, gas-fitters and professionals in flooring, tiling, drywalling, landscaping, masonry, painting, insulation, soundproofing, etc.

Is a City of Ottawa building permit required?2019-01-15T21:35:27+00:00

Some work will require building permits (i.e.i, load-bearing structures, plumbing, electrical, additions, etc.) from your municipality. Permits protect you by ensuring that the work passes safety standards, keeping your home insurable. Our experts can assist you through the permit application process where necessary.

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).

Does your company provide design services?2019-01-15T21:35:48+00:00

Yes, we use 3D design software to model your home renovation. This allows you to get a clear picture of what the final design will look like. This services is provided free of charge for all Renco customers and is even included our no-obligation estimates.  We can also work with your own designer or architect to complete the project.

Is Renco fully insured?2019-01-15T21:35:55+00:00

Yes, as a professional renovation contractor we carry $2,000,000 in insurance. This protects your home and our business.
