The end result is stunning!

We have used Murray and Revive a House on two extensive renovation projects. 

Murray has deep knowledge on how houses are built and can be modified from the structure on up. He successfully combined two rooms to make our new kitchen, removing supporting walls and installing hidden support beams – providing options that we did not even know were possible. The end result is stunning!

Above all else we find that Murray’s calm and even manner has kept our projects going despite the long string of surprises that any renovation project faces.  

We have recommended Murray and Revive a House to others.

The Complete Package!

We hired Revive-A-House Inc. to renovate the main level of our 30 year old, 4 level backsplit home. Revive-A-House Inc. is the complete package. Pat does the design/layout while Murray makes that design/layout a reality! Together with their expertise, knowledge and guidance they were able to transform our existing eat in kitchen, dining room and living into a modern, open concept eat in kitchen with an island, pantry, powder room, desk and sitting room without adding an inch of extra space!  Not an easy feat. 

Pat was creative, had a vision and was extremely helpful to ensure the colour scheme and overall appearance transitioned well with the remaining house. While we had a mess going anyway, we also had them install pot lights and redo the existing fireplace by changing it to a natural stone veneer and adding a beam in our family room.

This was not our first extensive renovation that we’ve completed to our home in the 13 years of ownership.  However, it was the first renovation we had Revive-A-House Inc. complete. We appreciated that Murray and his team were neat and tidy. While you’re living in chaos, they took extra time to clean up at the end of each and every day to create some semblance of order during the construction zone to minimize the dust throughout the rest of the house. Furthermore, Murray was upfront and advised us that it would take 8 weeks from start to finish. 

Murray completed the project within the stated timeline by ensuring that there was minimal downtime by organizing and scheduling the other professional trades accordingly.  We used the trades that Murray had recommended being Derek Shantz of Homestead Woodworking Inc. whom designed the cabinetry for the kitchen/island/pantry, fireplace beam, banister and railings; Randy Weber of R-W Electric Ltd. whom did all the electrical; and, Doug Frey of Frey’s Plumbing Works whom did all the plumbing.  We were extremely pleased with all their professional workmanship and team.  Murray further suggested that we purchase our flooring and backsplash from Brodercht’s Flooring Canada, stone for the fireplace from Stone Landscapes Inc. and granite countertops from Stonex Granite and Quartz which finalized the look.

We’ve received nothing but positive comments on the overall transformation of our main floor renovation.  Revive-A-House Inc. exceeded all our expectations and we look forward to continue working with them on our next project.

Bathroom Renovation

Pat and Murray were exceptionally helpful in this total bathroom overhaul. They provided assistance with design choices and completed the work quickly while we were away on vacation! We’re so pleased with the final result.
