Our Reviews

Three Bathrooms renovation

‘ We hired Yuriy and his team for a 3 bathroom renovation that also included the addition of a steam room. Right away we could tell that Yuriy is very knowledgeable and from the start gave us good ideas for our bathrooms. We liked that fact that he would reply right away to our questions. He gave us a very detailed quote in 2 days and told us it would not change regardless of what he found when he tore the existing bathrooms. Yuriy and his team stayed on schedule and budget. They worked fast without compromising quality. They even included some extra work that was not in the quote for free. We are very happy with our new bathroom and the quality of the work. We would definitely use them again for any future home renovations and would recommend them to friends and co-workers.  Luciano

Kitchen, Living Room and Bathroom reno

‘ Yuriy is a highly skilled tradesman and creative with respect to helpful suggestions. If he says he will do something on time and within budget – its done! I am so proud of my beautiful kitchen and bathrooms in large part because of Yuri and his renovation company. If you want to take ‘worry’ out of a reno equation call Yuriy – the best! Paul Tedesco

‘ Yuriy did a fantastic job. Our backsplash looks amazing and we are just thrilled. He answers texts and emails quickly and is very nice and professional. I highly recommend Yuriy and Universal House Improvement and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to anyone! A plus! Stephanie Kandel

Kitchen and Living Room reno

‘ Yuriy worked for me twice. First time he did a kitchen renovation in my old house. The project was big and complicated: remove wall, cut bigger window, move all HVAC pipes, put stone to the floor, etc. Because of his great work (very precise and accurate) I hired his company again when I moved to the new house. And again in less than a week, they did a magic. Will hire him again. Wes

Installation of a Travertine Kitchen Backsplash

‘ Yuriy did a beautiful job on our backsplash. He patiently helped us wade through the seemingly endless material and design options and guided us to a choice that fit our decor and our personal style to a “T”. He was easy to reach when we had questions, he was very flexible and generous with his time, and he did an expert job on the project. Paula

Shower (Custom)

‘ Yuriy was recommended by a person in the plumbing store who over heard that we had a major failure with our existing unit. We ultimately needed to have everything removed new walls and a custom shower built. We felt so lost. Yuriy called immediately, came to review when he said, did an amazing job and completed everything on time. The price? Again, this was a total removal tear back to the drain remove the floor add tiles, quite extensive. We paid exactly as quoted and I know he did some extra. This guy is proud of his work, Look no further.

Basement shower

‘ I hired Universal in Jan 2014 to build full bathroom with shower in my basement. When Yuriy came to give me a quote he reply to all my questions with absolute knowledge and then in few days provided me with detailed quote for the job. So after they start work and after 4 days I had my bathroom ready, it was like a flash in compare with my previous experience. But that speed didn’t affect quality at all. So I get my bathroom really fast, with great quality and for good price. Yuriy will be the best choice for such project and I presume for much more.  

Two complete bathrooms

‘ These guys renovated two bathrooms in my house which is 50 years old. That was so much work with old copper plumbing and stucco on walls and ceiling. And considering all that they did amazing work for just 15 days and 15.000$. For that price I get travertine tile, heated floors and shower glass door and my favourite wall niche. And I’ve paid exactly that I’ve been quoted, don’t look farther they are simply the best!

Main bathroom renovation

‘ Very happy with the quality and scheduling of work performed by Universal House Improvement. Yuriy and his team were on time and on budget in what turned out to be a difficult job. I would recommend their work to anyone looking for bathroom and/or tile work. First rate workmanship.

Three bathrooms renovation and over house fixes

‘ Yuriy’s work is excellent and he is knowledgeable and hard working. He is very capable and adaptable where needed and has carried out a number of additional plumbing and electrical jobs for us in addition to three bathroom renovations. We are very pleased with his work.

Three bathrooms renovation

‘ I hired Universal House Improvement to do all of my bathrooms renovation and I’m very happy of work they have done. Everything looks just great. Yuriy is the company owner and he helped a lot on choosing, buying materials and design of my bathrooms. Tile job is perfect and they did everything in time day to day and with no extras at all. So I’m very happy with their work and will 100% recommend Universal House Improvement, they are simply the best!   Alis
