Home & Cottage Renovation Services

If you're a cottage owner, at some point, you will probably call a local tradesperson to help with a job or a repair at your weekend retreat. Perhaps you would like to refresh the paint in your family room, resurface textured ceilings, or lay down new hardwood flooring throughout your cottage. Or maybe you plan to replace dated kitchen cabinetry or install new tiles in the bathroom.

You will need an electrician if you plan to upgrade your cottage's electrical service or perhaps install a generator to guard against the potential fallout from power outages. You will want to know who to call to unplug your clogged kitchen sink or if you want to trade your old toilet for an eco-friendly version.

If you'd like to take measures to ensure the water from your kitchen faucet is free of any impurities, you might consider calling someone to install a water treatment system.

At some point, will likely need to call on a local tradesperson to fine-tune or replace the heating, ventilation, or air-conditioning systems within your cottage.

Or perhaps you have a more adventurous project on the horizon. If you bought the property for its waterfront aesthetics with the idea of tearing down the existing structure, you might consult with a local contractor or builder to help make your cottage dreams a reality.
