Great standards for workmanship and materials. Always kept in the decision-making process as the renovations went along. House thoroughly cleaned at the end of each day so family was inconvenienced as little as possible. GREAT results!!!

If you’re looking for a contractor that is professional, personable, punctual, knowledgeable about their craft and reasonably priced, then look no further than John.
We hired John to complete our basement renovation and were completely satisfied. He is always open to your suggestions and offers guidance gleaned from his many years of experience. We highly recommend John & his crew, as their attention to detail and respect for your home (very tidy workers), is quite evident.
John has been back to our home several times since the basement renovation for other work and we have never been disappointed.

This company was hired to find the cause for water damage occurring above the bathroom in our bungalow. The source of the water damage was located at a roof vent. The roof was repaired which eliminated the leak. Mold growth was detected, then treated and eliminated. Water damaged dry wall and insulation was removed. New insulation, drywall and vapour barrier was installed and there was no recurrence of water damage or leaks.

John and his crew remodelled our kitchen, which included painting, tiling, new lights, cabinetry and countertops, as well as installing new built-in appliances. The work was done on time and per the estimate. We were kept informed of progress throughout the project and John has returned since to do minor touch-ups and a light fixture replacement we requested.
We regularly recommend John to others.

John Krygsman Renovations was the contractor who completed a major kitchen and bathroom reno in our house. From day 1 he showed up on time and his crew always worked hard. They tore everything out up to the roof and did repairs and fixed our leaks. Whey are very helpful in suggesting ideas as they progressed into building the kitchen. The results were spectacular. John pays a great deal of attention to detail and he is a perfectionist. I have the nicest kitchen of any I have seen and John kept the job smooth and stress free. I would highly recommend him for any contract for a kitchen , bath, or basement.

We hired John Krygsman to complete a major kitchen and ensuite renovation recently and he did not disappoint. A complete professional from start to finish. His work and that of his team was outstanding, he met deadlines and ensured that we were happy with the finished product. Communication was one of his greatest strengths, whether it by phone, text or email. We knew he would make the right the decisions and were blown away by the results.
John always went above and beyond our expectations and would kindly fix small problems outside the scope of his job, no questions asked, at no extra cost. We trusted him completely and would have him back in a second.

John and his crew did prep work and finishing work (plumbing, electrical, drywall, flooring, insulation, installation of appliances) for the renovation of our kitchen and family room. He also created a beautiful mantel for our corner fireplace — a tricky job that worked out perfectly.
John and each of the members of his team has great knowledge and expertise; they are courteous and friendly. They showed great respect for our home and tidied up at the end of each day. When a question of concern arose, John was quick to address it, responding in person, by telephone, or by email.
We would not hesitate to hire John for any other renovation work in our home.

Having decided after many years to update our 70′s kitchen, we searched out several companies and were thoroughly pleased with our decision to go with Kemi of The Kitchen Studio, and John Krygsman Renovations, who handled the renovation portion of the project.
From our initial contact through to completion, Kemi demonstrated a professional and personable approach.  She listened to our ideas and designed an outstanding and functional kitchen. She was there several times throughout the process and kept on schedule.

Not enough can be said about the contractor, John Krygsman, and his fabulous team. Young John (J.J.), Michael and Robert. The entire crew were reliable, knowledgeable and meticulous in every aspect of the job. They respected our input and took pride in creating this beautiful kitchen.

All in all we couldn’t be more pleased with the final outcome. We would highly recommend Kemi from The Kitchen Studio and John Krygsman Renovations for any home renovation.

Sincerely, Andy and Mary



Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Everyone who has seen our fireplace says the same thing “Wow!”

We knew we had hired the right people to install it. We just love it and thanks again for your patience and fine workmanship – It is much appreciated.

Harry and Sharon


Dear John,

Thank you so much for everything that you have done for us. You have no idea what a comfort you have been over the past few months. After our wet basement disaster we’ve been in good hands. Helping us put it all back together. We absolutely love what you have created and are certain it will become our favourite place to spend time.

We’re certainly going to miss you.

Our sincerest appreciation,

Eric and Penny
Hi John,

I’d like to tell you that I recommend you highly to my friends. We are very happy with the workmanship when installing our front door as well as the sliding patio door. Good job!

Helen and Tom



We love the railings and found your work impeccable. Thanks!

I have returned from Scotland to find our kitchen finished. Both Iris and I are very pleased, not only with the result, but also the peace of mind we enjoyed while you were on the job. We do appreciate the work you and the boys completed on our behalf. We are very happy with the quality and manner of your workmanship. In a month or so we will be back in touch to discuss in more definitive terms, our main bathroom.
