Laundry Room And Bathroom Renovation - Accessibility Priority

"We came to Mark with a need to re-design our laundry room into a configuration to include a mud room with accessibility and safety being the priority. Given the space was oddly laid out and space limited, it took some creativity. Also, we needed to modify our powder room bathroom and 1 upstairs bathroom to suit the special needs person, however, keeping home integrity. Tall order. Mark and company delivered incredible results! We cannot review them high enough. The contractors used were professional and friendly. Rob, the main tradesman, is an artist in his work. Mark managed the project skillfully and timely. For families looking to invest in their home for bang on results, look no further. We found this company on Homestars and opted to believe in others reviews. So grateful we did!"

Two Bathroom Renovation In Forest Hill

"Ashton Renovations did a superb job renovating my two condo bathrooms. For someone like myself who didn't know where to begin, Mark, the owner, provides two in one services, i.e., design suggestions as well as his team's excellent workmanship. He was always available throughout the process and I deeply appreciated his genuine support. I would highly recommend this company. They are honest, excellent communicators and take pride in their work."

Modern Ensuite Bathroom

"Having lived through various renovations (kitchen, main floor bathroom, hallway and family room) using recommended contractors from family and friends through the years, the results and experiences were not always pleasant! We delayed a needed renovation to our ensuite bathroom as we did not have confidence in a contractor. We turned to Homestars and found Ashton Renovations ranked very highly and decided to interview the owner Mark Ashton. We were impressed with his professionalism, honesty, and communication skills. We hired Mark Ashton having complete confidence in his abilities of himself and his crew. We were not let down by him and his team!

It was an extensive undertaking and even included some unforeseen repairs to the original plumbing, insulation and vapour barrier. Work was also done to relocate a heating vent and repair floor joists in the shower. Our new bathroom now includes a stand alone tub, with a glass enclosed shower that has opened up the previously cramped space. The shower features a rainhead, shower arm, and thermostatic control with Caesarstone thresholds and shelving. The double wall hung vanity and cabinet also add to the modern simplicity of the design. The renovation turned out better then we ever had dreamed of even with the unexpected problems that were found in our existing bathroom. We highly recommend Ashton Renovations!"

Lakeshore Bathroom Condo

"Mark and his team of professionals designed and executed flawlessly our vision for this project. His knowledge of condo renovations was extremely useful. The tiling team, the electrician and the plumbing team not to mention the construction team and the painter were terrific. Challenges were quickly dealt with: until the walls were removed we did not know how the cast iron Kohler shower pan would fit; the glass mosaic tiles we chose had to be installed face down against the wall, which was counter-intuitive. Through it all, Mark was the voice of reason for these worried homeowners. And the attention to detail never faltered. Mark is a pro and the results prove it. What the pictures do not show is the hidden work in the walls which was meticulously executed - first grade materials, great plumbing job including the wrapping of all the pipes in the wall to avoid sweating; the waterproof membrane in the shower stall. The master bathroom in our almost 40 year old condo looks spectacular because of you and your teams. Our warmest thanks for your dedication and your exceptional service."

Basement Renovation

"Ashton Renovations renovated our basement this winter. It was our 3rd project with them. Previously they renovated our main bathroom, ensuite, and kitchen. We were happy with them then, and are happy with the work they did on this project. Our original basement was quite dated and we wanted a more updated space now that our kids are older. It's now a much more functional room that includes all new framing and spray foam insulation, insulted flooring with cork, all new electrical and potlights, and built-in cabinetry for our entertainment system. We look forward to hiring them on our next project."

1950's House Transformation To Modern Open Concept

"I initially hired Ashton Renovations with high expectations based on many positive reviews from previous customers and they didn't disappoint. The attention to detail was excellent; they pointed out mistakes, or shortcuts that other contractors had made, and worked to make them right. They organized subcontractors well and ensured that all the work got done properly. Communication was excellent; they showed up on days when they said they'd show up and they were always on time. They used a combination of emails and phone calls to ensure that I was kept informed on all progress. The scope of the work included: design and drafting, a complete kitchen replacement, new bedrooms, new flooring, staircase refinishing, paint, doors and trim, a sun tunnel installation and pot lights throughout.

The final product was top notch and they were happy to return after-the-fact to fix up any issues that I had found. Working with Ashton Renovations was a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend them for the quality of their renovations. Mark Ashton and Ron Sanders are skilled contractors that care about doing a good job and doing it right."

Toronto Upper Beaches Kitchen Renovation

"I found Ashton Renovations through HomeStars, and selected them as a potential contractor based on the favourable reviews. After meeting with several contractors the choice was clear, Mark provided a detailed quote with costs itemized, timelines and potential of additional expense and areas of concern. Throughout the project Mark ensured I was kept informed and involved in the decision making. The project remained on schedule and budget. I most appreciated the crew's attention to detail and how clean they kept the work site.

The project involved renovating a kitchen in a 100+ year old home, this in itself created limitations, but Mark was focused on providing my contemporary design while appreciating the character/nuances of an older home. I would have no hesitation recommending Mark and his crew to anyone considering renovations and I would hope to complete another project with Ashton Renovations in the future."

Sharon Smith - Upper Beaches

Upscale Renovation of Two Bathrooms

"Our house is 100 years old; the bathrooms had not been renovated in over 30 years. We had done some of the design work and material selection prior to finding a contractor. We were intent on finding an honest and meticulous contractor that was willing to work with the plans we had created. When Mark first came to visit the house, he spent several hours discussing the details of the plan and the details of his construction methods. Mark was able to instill a confidence in us that other contractors were incapable of doing. After we officially hired Mark, he helped us to make some improvements to the plans; he and his crew then proceeded to build two beautiful and highly functional bathrooms. We are exceedingly happy with the end results and we will not hesitate to hire Mark again for other projects.

If you are considering hiring Mark, this is what you should expect: Mark is always honest. Mark almost always answers his phone. He is always willing to talk. He is always both friendly and accommodating. Mark and his crew all have an in depth knowledge of Canadian building codes and construction techniques. Mark generally likes to build well above the minimum building codes; he takes pride in his work and he wants everything he builds to last a very long time. Mark genuinely wants to see that his customers are happy during and after the renovation.

This is a brief summary of the renovation work that was done: New plywood installed to strengthen sub-floor; relocation of light fixtures and new electrical wiring; full height wall replaced with knee wall; new tile and glass shower enclosure which includes thermostatic shower valve, linear drain, rain head, LED lights, niche, and foot rest; sleek new BainUltra tub with heated air jets and heated back rest; heated flooring; porcelain tiles on floor and walls (the tile work is stunning!); horizontal bands of solid quartz added as an accent material in shower and bath areas (this was an idea Mark had suggested; we are very pleased with the result); solid stainless steel tile edging; new vanities with beautiful quartz countertops and under-mount sinks; new fiberglass window frames with quartz jambs; recessed medicine cabinet; new Toto toilets; and new closet doors."

Mark Did An Amazing Job!

"We recently redid our kids' bathroom from top to bottom. Tore out the tub and replaced it with a large shower; replaced the single vanity with a double; new toilet, lights, flooring, tiles. Mark was responsive, collaborative, meticulous. The result was a gorgeous bathroom that works great!"

Whole House Renovation

"Mark and his team were amazing to work with. They pretty much renovated our entire house. We have received many compliments on the quality of work. They paid attention to tiny details that we didn't even think of. Mark kept us up to date on the progress of our project and retained excellent professionals to complete work in our house. We felt very comfortable working with Mark. All of the people that Mark sent to work in our home were great--respectful and paid attention to detail. We would definitely contact Mark for future projects and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."

Ashton Renovations Delivers!

"We hired Ashton Renovations to undertake a complete renovation of our kitchen in our 90 year old home. This work involved removing the entire existing kitchen and rebuilding a new kitchen from the floor up. Extensive work was undertaken including removal of a structural wall, re-routing of plumbing, electrical and duct work, removal of asbestos and installation of new cabinets, flooring, lighting and built-in appliances.

We were extremely impressed with Mark Ashton. Mark is a thoughtful and kind person and an expert communicator. he provided us with a detailed quote for labour and supplies and focused our attention on the key issues involved in the renovation. He was able to reassure us about the project we were undertaking immediately. Mark was transparent with us about the potential issues we would encounter in undertaking an extensive renovation of a kitchen in an older home. And he was reassuring throughout the project; Mark and his team were proactive and presented mitigation strategies for our consideration whenever we encountered issues. Mark brought with him expert sub-contractors and a professional and courteous team. You could tell that everyone associated with his company did their job well and willing to go the extra mile to deliver an excellent product. His team kept our home clean and livable despite the extensive nature of the project. Mark delivered an exceptional kitchen and stayed on budget. He made many suggestions about products we were considering from flooring to cabinets to new doors. Many of his suggestions focused on how we could make our home more environmentally friendly. Towards the end of our project Mark went beyond the call of duty and coordinated all aspects of our work with our cabinet and countertop installers.

We are more than pleased with the results, we have a charming open concept kitchen that has completed our home - and are already planning a new project with Ashton Renovations. We strongly recommended Ashton Renovations to other homeowners considering new kitchens."

Ashton Renovations Did Another Great Job!

"We contracted Ashton Renovations to completely redo our ensuite bathroom. This was the second time that Mark and his team did renovation work for us. Once again Ashton renovations carried our exceptional work. They were on time, cost conscious and very professional. Working with Mark and the end product once again exceeded our expectations!"

Vito & Lina - Oakville

Bathroom Renovation & New Bathroom

"We cannot say enough good things about Mark Ashton, of Ashton Renovations. Not only did he steer us away from unnecessary expenses during our renovation, he also was very helpful in finding cost effective solutions to problems, which developed during the renovation process - especially when renovating a 90 year old house. Mark came in on budget and the final product speaks for itself. Please have a look at our completed bathroom - Ashton Renovations turned it from one of our least favourite rooms in our house to our most favourite. Renovations are never an enjoyable experience, but Ashton Renovations made it bearable."

Ashton Renovations (Whole House Renovation) - SIMPLY OUTSTANDING!

"Ashton Renovations transformed our newly purchased property into a comfortable and contemporary home for our growing family. The renovation included 2 entire floors of the house including the expansion of a 2 piece bathroom into an ensuite; the demolition of an existing basement and creation of an open concept space with full bathroom and laundry area; a main floor reno of living area with galley kitchen; and an updated bedroom and hallway adjacent to the bathroom ensuite.

Now complete, we are more than pleased with the final results. Mark and his team helped us through the design stage and this was key to the results, which we LOVE. We especially enjoy our beautiful ensuite, which is spacious and functional featuring a walk in shower with large rainhead and custom designed polished concrete bench and threshold. Our newly expanded and designed kitchen and living area is also now a more comfortable and usable space for our family to gather. The expansion of our kitchen window now allows us as well to overview our entire backyard and deck without obstructions to the beautiful view. Ashton Renovations is a company that clearly cares about their clients. They communicate well; keep the jobsite especially clean; are attentive to details; and are helpful with design and layout.

Mark was always available to discuss any aspect of the project and at times I had a hard time keeping up with his schedule, which demonstrated his commitment to doing things on time and on schedule.

We look forward to working with Mark and his team again as they have made the renovation process enjoyable and have always over-delivered."
