This past summer I decided to renovate my condo (kitchen, bathroom and flooring). Justin and his team did an excellent job (finished earlier than planned, designed a beautiful open concept and brought it to life – based on my vision and taste), and worked really hard to make me a satisfied costumer. I love my new home and recommend York Construction to anyone looking to make refreshing, up-to-date changes to their home.

Very professional. Hired them to finish a basement. The entire job went off without any problems and was on time and budget. Would recommend to anyone

How We Work

Step 1


Using our online form, we can get to know who you are, the location of your project, and a brief description of what it is you want to improve about your home. Upon receiving your contact form, one of our team members will call you within 1-3 business days.

During the initial phone conversation, we can better determine if York is the right fit for the job. If so, we will schedule a time for an in-home consultation.

Step 2


This is where it all begins. Justin, who is experienced in professional estimation will start by reviewing your property and hearing about the challenges you are currently facing in your home. Here we gather crucial information and have a realistic conversation about budget and timeline. We will also follow the meeting with an email including examples of relevant projects for others in your area.

Step 3


Our design expert Emily will perform a feasibility study of your project that is crucial to the quoting process. This will include information regarding building code and design, zoning bylaws affecting the project, and timeline. As part of the agreement, Justin will develop and present a line-by-line item proposal transparently displaying a cost-breakdown.

This price will be honoured, if you decide to partner with York Design Build on your project.

This will all be presented at a second meeting with both Justin and Emily.

Step 4


After the quote and feasibility agreement, we will provide you an official design build construction agreement to consider. This will include the quote, scope of work, company policies, warranty and insurance, and approximate project start and end dates. Signing this contract is a making a firm commitment to each other to move ahead with the project.

Step 5


Emily will now prepare documents and materials for the project approval process. If we determine that a minor variance will be required, we apply on your behalf to the Committee of Adjustment and complete all necessary steps including gathering neighbour statements and attending any public hearings, to receive approval. Simultaneously, Emily will measure your space and begin drafting the architectural plans of your existing and proposed home. Once you have approved these drawings, Emily will consult with our engineer and complete the final drawing set and any applications for building permit approval.

Step 6


At this time, we will have met to go over wish images and get to know your personality and functional living needs already. You will receive visual concept design boards for any detailed interiors like kitchens and bathrooms as a starting point for material and product selections. At this time Emily will meet with you to begin making material selections, whether it be in store or in home with samples. Following the major material and colour options, you will be given a list of any purchases or selections you need to make, all with Emily guiding your decisions, sourcing
products, and researching options along the way.

Step 7


Justin will help you get prepared for the project by providing you with scheduling prior to the start date, to help you prepare necessary accommodations. He will work with you to address issues like access, neighbours, parking, fencing, protection of other parts of your home and landscaping. He will help you establish any items that may be salvageable, and will keep them protected during construction. Justin is also experienced and certified in mould and asbestos removal and can arrange necessary services to deal with such issues if they arise.

Step 8


During the construction phase, we take all the necessary precautions protecting the existing parts of your home.

We will provide schedule updates and issue payment invoices at each project milestone.

All our workers are experienced, certified, and insured by WSIB. Justin or Emily will be making constant quality control and design checks throughout the duration of the project and will be on site frequently or available by phone to answer any questions or concerns. Any additions, upgrades, or changes to the scope of work will be documented in an official change order, signed by both parties.

Step 9


As we near the end of construction, Justin and Emily will do a final and thorough walk-through to identify any deficiencies, and help you get to know your newly renovated home. As time goes on, things will settle, humidity and temperature levels will change. For this reason, we offer a warranty to correct any of these issues through the first two years after construction. Products such as cabinets, vanities, and fixtures from our suppliers have individual warranties as well. We pride our selves on quality of work and we don’t disappear the moment your project finishes. We are building lifelong clients here at York Design Build.
