Working With Great Spaces

How We Work

At Great Spaces, we believe that the foundation of a successful project is the relationship between client and contractor, beginning with the appreciation of clients’ trust in us to respect their home, time and money. And it grows during the renovation process through our maintenance of clear, consistent communication and immediate responsiveness to any questions or concerns.

Our reputation has been built upon professional standards of total accountability and superior customer service that guarantee the high-quality results that you rightfully expect. That’s why our clients invite us back for each new project and feel confident recommending us to family, friends and neighbours.

You can be confident that Great Spaces will complete your project on time, on budget and to your satisfaction. It’s not just a claim but a fixed-price, written guarantee covering the entire scope of work contracted.

Our business is based upon a code of professional conduct that emphasizes consistently superior performance and unconditional accountability. We don’t renovate houses; we create the spaces where your family’s stories unfold.

We’ve been renovating in Markham for a long time and have worked in almost every neighbourhood in town, so there isn’t much we haven’t seen. We invite you to take advantage of our years of experience and expertise and give us a call to discuss your renovation dream.

The Process

1) Let’s Meet

The first step is to get together to talk about your project. The best place to do this is in your home, where we can see the space and understand your vision. We’ll discuss your goals, ideas, budget and timelines for the project, answer any questions you may have and get to know each other.

2) Design

We know you’ve been thinking about your project for a while and have many ideas running through your head. We’ll help you visualize the new space through sketch, layout, and 3-D perspective drawings. This step helps us cost your project and gives you some options.
Not all projects require drawings; sometimes, you just know what you want, and the layout will remain the same. We’ll still give you many ideas about the details that will make your project unique.

3) Proposal / Agreement

Once we’ve sorted the details, we’ll present you with a written proposal. This includes a very detailed scope of work, timelines, schedule of payments, information about warranty and a general project understanding. For most projects, we’ll give you purchase allowances in the scope of work for fixtures and finishing items you select. There are many decisions and selections, but don’t worry, you’ll never be alone. We’re here to help and have many expert vendor partners to assist you along the way.

After you’ve reviewed the proposal, the final step is signing the agreement. We don’t move forward until you’re comfortable with every aspect and we’re all on the same page.

4) Let’s Get to Work!

Now for the exciting part! We set a start date and begin to schedule trades and order material. There are likely still some things to fine-tune at this stage, so we’ll communicate everything we need from you to set ourselves up for a smooth, stress-free renovation experience.

This communication will continue through each project phase as we work toward completing your fabulous new space.

This is the 2nd time I have had the pleasure of using Rob and his team at Great Spaces for a renovation project. The 1st project involved a complete home update to get a property ready for sale. It was a big job with a tight timeline, and they far exceeded my expectations.
This latest project was a basement apartment. Once again, they did a fabulous job, had great ideas and completed the project as promised.
I would highly recommend Great Spaces for your next renovation project.
