Backyard Oasis, Nicholas & Doreen, Brampton ON
“This was a project to transform a typical new build backyard into a backyard “oasis”. The project included installing an in-ground pool with solar heating, building a pool shed, a new built in grill station, extensive planting (including some artificial turf), irrigation for the entire property, landscape lighting and a natural stone (flagstone) deck. There was (relatively) minor work to front of the house to add patio stones and a natural stone to the front ensure that the front and back landscaping had some symmetry.
This is the second time we worked with the team at ATD and they delivered once again. As the general contractor on the job they kept things moving and keep us informed at all stages of the project. In the end the project was delivered on time when the weather related delays were factored and within budget. Any changes in timeline and budget were the result of change orders that we approved during the project. A key factor to our satisfaction with the work done was the recommendations by Justin, most of his suggestions made the finished product a lot better than we envisioned.”
Main Floor & Bathroom, Sean & Sarah, Burlington ON
“ATD completely renovated the main floor and bathroom of our home. Amazing work and attention to every detail! All crew members were respectful and conducted themselves in a business-like manner. Great work guys!”
Bathroom, Stephen & Helen, Toronto ON
“ATD was a pleasure to deal with from the initial discussion and design to the completion of the job. Their designer provided valuable input, opened our eyes to new possibilities and was considerate of our tastes. The project was worked on diligently, in a professional manner and was completed on time and on budget. All of the tradespeople working for the company were on premises without fail on the dates and times promised. The project leader was available at all times and dropped by regularly to ensure the quality of the work. We are delighted with our new bathroom and thank ATD for all their hard work.”
Bruce & Alberta, Burlington ON
“We had two levels of flooring changed from ceramic tile and carpet to hardwood and some ceramic tile along with a major renovation in our ensuite bathroom and main level bathroom and laundry room. All of our trim and doors including our front door was replaced along with trim and 1st and 2nd floor being painted. The project was quoted for a 6 week duration and that is exactly what happened even though we added a few things to the original work order. There were no surprise costs and the project came in on budget. The staff were very courteous, knowledgeable, experienced, always cleaned up the job site, looked after our dog, Mya, who is still looking for lunch treats! Even the sub-contractors such as plumbing, tiler, granite and stair guys were on time, very polite and experienced. We have had a few visitors to the house so far since the renovations are now complete and have received wonderful compliments.”
Walk-Out Basement, Brampton
“Simply put the team at ATD delivered!!! They exceeded all of our expectations regarding time, professionalism, quality and responsiveness. From helping us with design concepts to making recommendations to help us manage costs they have a balanced approach that is indicative in a sense of pride in what they do. Given that we fully utilized an open basement to include a wine cellar, gym, home office and bar having this balanced approach was important. Our experience with renovating our walkout basement was so good that we have starting working the team on the next project to complete an outdoor “living room” that will result in a seamless outdoor/indoor living space. The attention to details came through when almost every issue that I had on my list for addressing was completed proactively, so the walkthrough was a process of checking off the list as opposed to creating/agreeing on the list. Since this renovation occurred in a new build the comparison to the PDI walkthrough when the home was purchased was night and day. N.”
“My kitchen renovation experience with ATD contractors was great! I am thrilled with the results! The team headed up by Justin and Joe lived up to their name Attention To Detail. Their suggestions and mine were contained in a professional set of drawings which was provided to help me visualize what was going to take place. Alterations and adjustments were taken into account which enticed me into actually doing this renovation. The contract itself outlined materials included, and those materials which would be extras plus a payment plan. Once the project was put into place, Joe provided a detailed outline of choices which I needed to make plus a useful timeline which would keep the project on time., As well several sources for these materials, including names and addresses were given. This made my job searching for them less daunting. When I needed a microwave or garbage container I was given help with those items as well. All members of their team were extremely friendly, motivated and proficient in their field. They appeared on time and cleared up each day which made my reno more bearable. They were friendly and comfortable with my dog and accommodated my staying at home for this. As well a project binder, including many details, helpful for each member of their team even covering their safety in the event that a member of their team might need to visit a hospital (not only the location but also a map) was available to the team. Drawings were available as well for the various trades. As my kitchen was appearing I asked for some extra work to be done and Justin and Joe provided me with other trades. These people also had expertise in their field. The stair railings are amazing! The plumbers fixed a problem. I also had insulation installed and never would have known that another trade had appeared as they were quick and extremely clean. My project was completed on time only when Justin, Joe and myself were satisfied with ALL aspects of the job, just as their name implied, ATTENTION TO DETAIL! I am extremely pleased with the results and with ATD contractors! As well I am planning to use them for other projects but have also recommended them to friends. I now have the kitchen of my dreams!”
“It took us time, thought and courage to decide to “fully” re-do our yard, and then research as to who we would choose for the job, but we have never looked back since deciding to work with Justin, Joe and their ATD team! Our family is now enjoying a fully renovated backyard in which we would not change a thing! The whole crew at ATD were wonderful to deal with on a daily basis (extremely accommodating), and have done an incredible job from our new pool “coping”, to our flagstone, our deck and our hot tub “pad.” We honestly do not have one complaint and love our finished backyard. It truly is a wonderful extension to our home which is exactly what we wanted it to be! Thank you for “painlessly” transforming our yard into a resort at home! We couldn’t be happier!!! The Hunt Family”
Condo Kitchen, Etobicoke
“The dynamic-duo of Joe and Justin (and crew) strikes again! Joe, Justin, Tiff and the crew at ATD Contracting services did an amazing job on our kitchen. We had previously hired them to do a renovation on our bathroom and were very pleased with the result there, and this time we hired them for two projects in one – our kitchen and our laundry room. From the moment we contacted them, they were eager, courteous, polite and a delight to work with. They guided us very professionally and step-by-step through the design of our space, choice of materials (including referral to local businesses that had speciality products), choice of fixtures, etc. This project involved completely gutting the kitchen, removal of a wall, building structure for “peninsula” and then rebuilding the kitchen with high quality Canadian-sourced cabinetry (Cuisine Laurier) and quartz countertops (Caesarstone). All jobs come with some challenges, but the mark of great contractors is how they deal with these challenges. Justin and Joe dealt with those challenges head-on, got the problem solved to our collective satisfaction (sometimes their standard was higher than ours!). They have an excellent team of talented trades people who all have done great work. We would gladly recommend them to others, and will likely be hiring them again in the future. ~ Scott & Iain ”
“It is with great delight that we write a review for ATD Contracting Services Inc. who recently completed a full kitchen renovation in our 37 year old townhouse. I can recommend Joe and Justin highly and without hesitation. Im a stay at home Mom with two young children, and I have to say that during the course of the renovation, all staff and sub-contractors of ATD Contracting Services Inc. were very professional, timely and friendly. Everyone who came into our home were stand-up guys who could communicate well with me and my daughters. The guys were accurate with the initial assessment of the cost of our project and projected above costs such as plumping and electrical based on the age of our home. They directed us to buy flooring and backsplash at a reputable helpful company. In addition, all staff were extremely clean and tidy in the workplace, they never left our home a mess. Joe and Justin bring a clear appreciation for quality work and they demonstrated this on a daily basis. The follow-up was outstanding during the duration of the renovation. We had a few setbacks that pushed our reveal, but all was handled very professional and with ease. I have to say my husband and I searched for a contracting company for over eight months, we had numerous contractors to our home and it just never felt right. The original night Joe and Justin came in something clicked, they seemed to understand completely what we wanted and needed. They were quick at getting back to us with a quote, and then all the puzzles pieces fell into spot. Tanya & Sean”

“After several months of searching for a reputable and quality driven contractor, we chose ATD. I must admit, ATD was not the cheapest quote we received but they were worth every penny! I pride myself on being extremely detailed and organized and explained to Joe and Justin that I did not like surprises and expected quality work throughout the entire process. Not only did they come in on budget but finished ahead of schedule with results that exceeded our (high) expectations. My wife (stay at home mother of 4) was put at ease on the first day of renovations when greeted by a courteous, friendly and organized team of professionals. Communication was paramount as daily questions were answered in a timely manner with many terrific suggestions for minor hiccups that periodically occurred. We had two on-going jobs happening in the house over the 5 week period. Upstairs we redesigned our master bathroom and downstairs he completion of our partially finished basement (theatre room with 3 pc bathroom). The work was impeccable and their ideas along the way were a refreshing change from work we’ve had done from previous contractors. ATD truly lived up to their name Attention To Detail! A BIG Thank-you goes out to the crew that assisted in our incredible renovation. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the end result and would highly recommend this company for any renovation need.”
Main Floor, Etobicoke
“I was extremely pleased with our renovations and the quality of work that was done. Joe and Justin were wonderful to work with and the crew they had were amazing! We are loving our new main floor and are getting tons of compliments on how things look! I would highly recommend this company!”
“This being my first renovation experience, I really had no idea what to expect, nor did I realize how much work finishing a basement entails. I will admit I was nervous and not even quite sure how to imagine it finished. Upon meeting Justin and Joe, I felt immediately at ease and they not only answered my questions but gave me helpful suggestions as well. They understood the finished product I was looking for.They guided me through the procedure on a day-to-day basis and made themselves available whenever needed. They went above and beyond the job requirements. In fact, the entire ATD team were incredibly friendly, professional, helpful, courteous and respectful – all traits which are extremely important to me.
Not only do I have a fantastic living space now, I know who I can trust with any other renovations I may have in the future. Absolutely wonderful guys and I highly recommend this amazing team!”
“I just love my kitchen and my bathroom. I remember the first time you and Justin came in and he told me I would be surprised to see how you guys could update the kitchen. I just stand in there sometimes and think I am in a new house and how lucky I am to have found you and Justin!”
Kitchen Renovation, Oakville
As Creative Director of an advertising agency, you could say that I have a very particular eye for design and detail. In fact, my career depends upon it. Which is why this letter of recommendation is such a pleasant surprise to write.In short, Ive had previous experiences with home contractors that didnt measure up. But Justin and Joe were outstanding. Right from the get-go, they understood what we were looking for in our space and brought forward an original design solution that opened up our kitchen. They detailed everything for us and provided realistic budgets and timelines to get the job done. And although they were certainly not the least expensive quote we received, we felt that their passion and hands-on approach were more than worth it.
And, it was the best decision we made.
Day in and day out, they did a great job. On site, they were extremely conscious about keeping our home as minimally affected as possible which included a full clean up at the end of each day. They were respectful, polite and thoughtful.
I think the ultimate comment we could make about ATD was the day we came home and saw Justin standing in our kitchen who commented, Im really proud of this. That pride of workmanship says it all to me. And I concur with Justin.
The final thing I would say is that I wouldnt hesitate to recommend ATD to any of my friends and family.”
Front Porch/Walkway, Oakville
“ATD lived up to their name. Every member of the team paid ATTENTION TO DETAIL. They listened to what I wanted and devised a plan that stayed within my budget, and there where no surprises at the end! Both the materials and workmanship were excellent. I was in constant communication with both owners of the company throughout the job and they always kept me up-to-date and were accessible for questions and concerns. Depending on the type of work they always had an experienced tradesman on hand. Whether it was carpentry, stone work, or aluminum, It was obvious that these men were skilled and were completing the job as if it were on their own home. I will, without a doubt, use them again. Jordan, Oakville ON.”
“At this time last year I had an outdated kitchen and no clue how to go about changing it, or how I wanted it changed. Fortunately I met Justin Rubatscher and Joe Aragona of ATD at the Oakville Home Show and rather painlessly I have a fantastic new living space. From our initial meeting Joe was patient, informative and accommodating in walking me through the entire process. His laid back personality and strong communication skills made the decision making a relatively effortless exercise. From the design, deconstruction, to reconstruct, to the billing, I was kept informed of what happens next and when, and why. Joe gave plenty of input to accommodate my concerns and desires throughout the design stage. I had plenty of information to make the decisions my own with confidence. When it came to the install, the ATD guys were all terrific, professional, polite, courteous and respectful of my home and family. The whole project was completed in a timely manner. I couldn’t be happier with results. My old outdated kitchen is now a modern highly functional joy. It is the best room in my favorite place. I will not hesitate to have Joe and ATD return for my next renovation project. ~Doug H.”
