We had a very positive experience working with Amsted as they helped us transform our recently purchased 1930s era home to make it our own, including modernizing the kitchen and family room space in the addition. Their support through the design process and professionalism and attention to detail through construction put us at ease. We would use Amsted again for our next project without hesitation.
Michael and Brenda View Project
You guys listened to everything we wanted and gave us the addition we saw in our dreams. Truly outstanding work, and we're excited and happy. You also handled every change and curve ball we threw your way, and found a way to achieve what we wanted. Our sincere thanks.
Shane View Project
Throughout the process of renovating our kitchen, the Amsted team were professional, imaginative and determined to make everything perfect. We wanted a kitchen with a big punch of red, and Amsted make it work beautifully--on time and on budget. We were especially grateful for the care they took protecting and accommodating our two cats. We were so pleased with the work and the experience that we had Amsted back this year to completely update the exterior of our home.
Connie View Project
Not only did Amsted meet our expectations, but they exceeded them. Both during and after the renovation, their attentiveness to our needs has been exceptional. Their professionalism is evident in everything they do. Their employees are knowledgeable and take great pride in their work and the company. We are so glad that our first major renovation experience was a good one and we would not hesitate to use Amsted again.
Karen View Project
In the end Amsted delivered more than a renovated house, they delivered an improved quality of life for our family. We have a brighter, bigger more functional living space that allows us to entertain friends in style, but also an oasis to come home to after a long day at work. For the first time ever my husband and I were actually able to imagine how great daily life could be after retiring, because Amsted proved to us that it is good to be home.
Marianne View Project
We hired Amsted to do a major main floor reno of the kitchen, dining room and living room. We were very pleased with the results - they kept on schedule and on budget and the end result was exactly what we had hoped for. We did a bathroom reno previously with another company that didn't go so smoothly -  Amsted has restored our faith in the renovation business! I would definitely recommend Amsted to anyone looking to do a home reno.
John and Shelley View Project
One of the nice things of working with a company like Amsted is how they are able to solve problems for their clients. They took care of everything during the renovation and their after-renovation service has also been excellent. You can tell that reputation is important to them and as a client you benefit from their expertise and their commitment to their clients.
Bob and Karen View Project
Amsted not only delivered but exceeded expectations. Walking into our renovated house felt like being gifted a brand new home! We're proud of and delighted with the results. Thanks, Amsted!
Darryl and Newbina View Project
We are very fortunate to have worked with Amsted on several other projects in the past few years, as we turned the family home that we purchased into a residence suitable for an active retirement lifestyle. Ultimately, we decided to go ahead with the project because of our comfort with the commitment to the highest construction standards that are the hallmarks of Amsted’s work. Despite this being a non-traditional project, we knew that we could depend on Amsted bring all the elements together with integrity, creativity and respect for the budget. Many thanks to everyone at Amsted!
Per and Carolee View Project
Every single Amsted employee we have dealt with has been professional, personable and extremely competent. We've had many compliments on the work done in our house and recommend Amsted to our friends and neighbours.
