“Hi there, my name is Corinne O'Brien and I recently had the pleasure of working with Timko to rebuild my home after it was completely destroyed by fire. Not only did I find all who worked at Timko (and yes I believe I talked, met and conversated with each and every person during the rebuild), professional and knowledgeable but personable as well, they just really cared about the job or task no matter how small and each person working on the project did not hesitate to throw an idea out and talk or brainstorm as they put my home back together. They are a team, they work as one and it shows.
The rebuild was a massive project, 5 level split with an enclosed pool room, from tear down right through to the final walk through I found the project to be organized despite the few city setbacks but was finished on time and the house is truly beautiful and solid. Even after all was completed if I had any questions or concerns no matter what day or what time, Tim from Timko responded immediately to address whatever my concern was or to just inform me of the basic knowledge and knowhow because everything in the house was brand new. Tim of Timko Home Improvements Ltd. is a very good contractor, he kept me informed during the project, was honest in regards to costs and things that insurance would not cover, he dealt with my insurance and went to bat for me with insurance when necessary, striving for the absolute best possible outcome.
I would and already do recommend Timko to everyone. I have made some very good friends and I would not trust my home to anyone else. Know your contractor :)”

"Timko Home Improvement’s experienced staff made our dream of the complete renovation of our 1915 home a reality. They did an excellent job of coordinating everything from start to finish. Now we get to enjoy the results of their great craftsmanship, particularly the custom carpentry and tile work, every day."

"Choosing TIMKO Home Improvements to renovate and complete the addition on our character home was one of the smartest decisions we have ever made. The beautiful Craftsman home was begging to be updated but we were at a loss as to how to proceed. Tim from TIMKO Home Improvements entered the scene, with expert advice and helped us formulate a solid plan. Our goal was to preserve the character and charm of yesterday while updating the home with modern convenience. Soon after, he and the talented crew went to work, with the lines of communication being of utmost importance due to the fact my wife and I both work outside of the city. They handled every step of the renovation with the ultimate in professional standards, experience, and creativity. Our home turned out perfectly; we can honestly say that though many months have passed, not a day goes by that we don't love it. The whole renovation proceeded skillfully and professionally. As they are committed to customer satisfaction I recommend TIMKO Home Improvements to anyone looking to renovate or add on to their home. TIMKO Home Improvements will not disappoint – they aim to please."

"I have had the pleasure of working with TIMKO Home Improvements over the past few years on various projects and properties and I have always been extremely satisfied with their timeliness, work ethic, and at the quality of their work. There is always great communication through email and phone, which is always a big plus in my opinion. Any changes or issues were promptly addressed without question or hesitation and the workers themselves were courteous and accommodating – even to the point of letting us know when to expect the noise level to increase because of our new baby.
The breadth of knowledge and experience in the TIMKO team makes you feel that any project they take on will be completed properly and adhere to any building codes or industry standards – often exceeding them. My experience with TIMKO Home Improvements has included projects as small as a hardwood floor repair and bathroom renovation to nearly a full house renovation including windows, doors, flooring, and decks.
Overall, I have been very pleased and I always look forward to my next project with Tim and his team. I would recommend, and have recommended, TIMKO Home Improvements to other homeowners."

"I have used TIMKO for my home improvement needs over the last 4 years. Their estimates are in line with final costs so there are no surprises. If I have any questions about project costs they take the time to review them with me so I know what to expect. I trust the work that they do. Tim and his team are reliable and ensure that the job is always done right."

"We just bought a house which was not very old, and only built in 2007. There were aspects of the house that we thought were done wrong, and TIMKO improved it to our customized request...plus they built us a sweet pergola, integrated with an extension to our back deck for our hot tub...and it looks fantastic. If we do more work in the future, we will contact TIMKO."

"I would sincerely like to thank Tim and his employees, as well as all the sub-contractors for the beautiful work they did in renovating my home. From the re-stippling of the ceiling to the hardwood flooring and everything in between – including the installation of the kitchen and the painting of the walls, doors and trim – the workmanship displays quality and expertise and is truly beautiful. I often just sit in my chair and gaze at my new wonderful surroundings. Thanks for a job well done that is very much appreciated."
"P.S. The cat is having trouble “getting a grip” with the new flooring!!! He’s going to have a sore body for a while, until he figures out that he can’t stop short, nor take off quickly!"
"Thank you for being so thoughtful and helpful!
The fence looks amazing, sturdy & well built. Thank you so much. We know you are busy!"

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions. If you can’t find the answers you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Yes, we have Journeyman and Apprentice carpenters. We also have a great management team to help you put together any project.
No. We do, though, use the same plumbing team on every job to ensure quality and consistency.
Yes, the life of tile is longer than linoleum and if the tile is broken it can be changed. Tile is colder to walk on, but it has a very nice look and can be heated.
If you screw down subflooring, there will be little chance of it lifting, which will eliminate squeaks. When you choose to screw down the floor, you can apply glue as well. Some people choose to nail down floors, but the nails will loosen over time. Screws will not, especially if it has also been glued.
You should have a permit to make sure that all the work being done is done properly the first time. Also, when you are selling or upgrading your home it will make things a lot easier if it was done correctly and to code specifications.
