This is not a horror renovation story. Quite the opposite. Caring, Attentive, Helpful. Thoughtful. The Sunnylea Homes Team took extraordinary care of me and my home. We worked without a designer and the team was so experienced and knowledgable, they provided outstanding functional advice that made every decision and choice the absolute right one. Thank you to the full team - you have made my life a lot sunnier! Pamela

Marino and the team got the job done on time, on budget, and with attention to detail that is hard to find these days. Hard to do better than that! Highly recommended. We initially began with a small job. Marino communicated extensively about timelines and the work, and accommodated our requests for timeline changes. After we started the job, we decided to considerably expand the scope. Marino and the team could not have been more accommodating and despite the expanded scope they minimized disruptions and met the promised timelines to the day. We were impressed by how Marino and the team worked intelligently and with much care as the job progressed. For instance, at one point, they recommended re-routing various pipes to gain us an extra inch of space in the washroom without any extra cost. Similarly, they re-did some tiling because of slight imperfections, even though it was going to be covered by the vanity, again without any additional cost. These are small things, of course, but they all add up. Highly recommended!

Wow! I had an incredible experience with Sunnylea. It started with a full gut job of our condo and 3 quotes. After meeting with Marino from Sunnylea a couple of times, I decided to trust him with our project and it could not have gone better. From arranging approvals with my condo corp, working through design changes and material changes with our designer, to scheduling and deploying trades and delivering our finished home on time. It was all seamless and for the most part, hands off for us. We moved in almost one year ago and Marino and Sunnylea are now friends of ours and even came to our housewarming party! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I would highly recommend Sunnylea to anyone that asks!

From the beginning, Geno and the Sunnylea team worked collaboratively and effectively with our chosen designer. Along with contributing cost-saving edits, he quickly translated the designer's plans in to a reasonable and accurate quote and schedule for the work. Every worker on the project were experts in their field and were able to provide good explanations and recommendations for challenges. In general, we felt that no corners were cut throughout the process. Geno responded within 24 hours to any question we had. We would absolutely go to Sunnylea for our next project and are happy to recommend them to anyone.

Geno has managed our construction project professionally and with realistic outcome. He has a specialized team that works independent of each other with attention to fine details.

Marino of Sunnylea Homes was a pleasure to deal with from our first meeting over 18 months ago, until today. His knowledge, professionalism, honesty and responsiveness have never lapsed. I decided to have my condominium stripped to bare walls and cement, and then have it built into a place in which I could work and relax, while wanting for nothing else. Marino handled all phases of the work from demolition, electrical, plumbing, flooring, tiling and painting always in accordance with his initial timeline and also with meticulous finish! My unit has been featured on a House & Home video segment recently, which attests the level of finish he assisted in bringing about. I have utilized his energies and expertise on smaller projects as well. The current one being a renovation of some of the common areas within my Medical Clinic. I would trust both Marino and his various tradesman without question. I could tell they pride themselves in the work they put forward. Thank you to the team for making such a tumultuous endeavor seem painless.

Working with Geno and his team has been an incredible experience. He has been transparent and flexible at every stage. The teams at the site were professional, courteous to the neighbours and careful in their work. Geno collaborated with my designer at every step and together they made this project beautiful. Highly recommend and would use again without hesitation.

I can't say enough about how good this company is. The first concern in any renovation is budget. They came in less than 10% of the initial quote and ALL the overages were upgrades I requested!!! Sunnylea provides white glove service. The work was exquisitely done. The workmen were all professional, friendly and very skilled. My home was always left very clean. I love the end result. In short: On time, on budget, excellent workmanship, white glove service, professional, friendly They were with me every step of the way. Now that they are finished, I miss them!

Marino and his team at Sunnylea were absolutely amazing with my renovation project. I really appreciated the integrity of Marino and his team, the timely communications and response to questions and issues, and ultimately, the overall professional standards of the whole team of contractors. Sunnylea executed a stunning transformation of my home and I couldn't be happier with the results.

We had the great privilege of working with Geno and the Sunnylea team when our parents' home was chosen for an episode of HGTV's Making It Home with Kortney and Kenny. From the first meeting up until today, Geno has treated us like family, taking care to answer every email, take phone calls on weekends and ensure that all our questions were answered. The house turned out beautifully and has made this huge move for our parents an amazing experience. Sunnylea has a crew of skilled trades who show up exactly when they say and do the work as promised (this is so rare!). As a family run business, the entire Sunnylea team is very attentive and no question was too ridiculous to ask! We have worked with a lot of contractors and Geno and his crew are one of the best. We would not hesitate to use Sunnylea again, thank you so much Geno!

Sunnylea Homes rebuilt a shower in our basement that gave a beautiful addition to our home. Marino has always been sensitive to our needs, and very flexible with his time and energy. His magician, as he refers to him, Slava is highly skilled, professional and clean. I would hire them again.

Geno and his team helped us with a top to bottom reno of our new home! He was always extremely responsive and available to us when we needed him. His work was top quality and he went above and beyond for our family. Thank you Geno and team for creating our dream home!

I can’t say enough about the wonderful work that Geno and his team did to transform my dated condo into a contemporary living space. The quality and craftmanship of the work are truly outstanding and his entire team collaborated incredibly well with my building’s management team throughout the entire journey. This level of trust and communication was greatly appreciated since I undertook this reno while living and working outside of the country. I can’t thank them enough for the level of care and attention that they brought to this project.

Geno helped us through a difficult reno with more than a few unexpected surprises in our 1950’s home. The reno involved removal of interior walls with structural engineering at 2 different stages. We vaulted the ceilings and made a large great room. We also added a large porch with cold storage underneath and did a bump out small addition above and below ground. We insulated the entire house (some inside and some outside) and finished the whole outside with stone and stucco. He was calm, honest and willing. We are very happy with the results.

We met Geno at the home show and with just his greeting we knew he was the one for us. From our intial introduction to the end of our main floor renovation journey, we could not have been happier. A job so outstanding that if we had to buy our home again, we would!! Geno and his team were not only friendly, professional and always on time, their level of customer service was, and is second to none. A special mention is extended to Woytek. His attention to detail left us speechless. A true gentleman who exhibited his meticulous craftsmanship daily. We have decided to complete another project with SunnyLea Homes and we are looking so forward to working with Geno and his team again. Geno to you and the SunnyLea family, we thank you for making our vision come to life. The Di Venanzo’s

From start to finish, Geno and his team at Sunnylea handled our kitchen reno professionally and with beautiful results. They were pleasant and practical and kept us informed as to progress every step of the way. I highly recommend Sunnylea as an organization you can trust.

Marino and his crew were phenomenal. Courteous, hard-working and clean considering the work that was done. They remodeled the kitchen so beautifully and would definitely call them in the future.

We had an excellent experience with Geno and SunnyLea Homes when they renovated the entire main floor of our house with The Property Brothers: Forever Home. We were so pleased with every single aspect of our renovation; it was like walking into a brand new house on reveal day! Geno and his team were professional, prompt, and showed great attention to detail. We will definitely be hiring SunnyLea Homes to work on future projects in our home.

We were fortunate enough to meet Geno and his team from Sunnylea Homes for our special project by The Property Brothers. Given the short deadline and amount of work to be done, the Sunnylea team did an outstanding job. The main floor, kitchen, master bedroom and bath were totally stripped to the bare bones and redesigned and updated including the removal of a main floor wall. The quality of work is what we were expecting from a project like this. Needless to say we are extremely pleased with the finished work and enjoy our new updated home. Geno and his team are always available for any questions we've had and reply promptly. We would not hesitate to recommend Geno and Sunnylea Homes for any renovation job.

To say that Sunnylea Homes turned the vision we had for the complete exterior renovation of our home into a gorgeous reality is truly an understatement. We could not have done this without the expert guidance of Geno and his highly skilled team. Our entire four-storey townhouse exterior was upgraded. Our project included: roof, skylight, repositioning of washroom exhaust fan, sheet metal cladding for roof parapet wall and dormer, all aluminum, additional lighting, windows, window sills, brick repair, all doors (front, fire-rated, patio and garage) and all interior window and door trims. We had worked on smaller projects with Geno in the past and knew that he would treat us warmly, respectfully and coordinate the work with the utmost care. He lowered the anxiety factor on this job to as close to nil as humanly possible. We would also like to give special thanks to Tomas for his patience, answering all our many questions with true consideration and for always going the extra mile. This amazing transformation is a dream come true. Thank you so much to everyone at Sunnylea Homes for making us fall in love with our home all over again!

This is our 2nd renovation from Geno. He’s the best! The first one was a few years ago when he pretty much tore our house down & rebuilt it. It was so beautiful he won an award for it. Since then we moved into a Condo & we had no hesitation to have Geno help us again. Since we live on the lake, we wanted to turn our bedroom into a seaside resort. All the popcorn finish was taken off our ceiling (with no mess) and the entire room was repainted. The new Oak flooring was put down and it’s fabulous. It’s reminiscent of sand which worked with the beachy look I was going for. He also did some electrical & plumbing work. Geno & his crews are always on time and do amazing work at a respectable price. Thank you again Geno.

A big thank you to Sunnylea Homes! Geno and his group of craftsmen (persons) recently renovated our tired and aged bathrooms + a few other odd jobs. The end results are outstanding, we are still catching ourselves spending too much time admiring the work. Dealing with Geno through the project was definitely a pleasure, a true customer centric professional, a truly hassle free experience. And of course a special thank you to Slava (master craftsman and a funny guy). Slavas work ranks up there with the best, especially the tilework. Sunnylea has got our full endorsement for future projects. Call Geno, you won't be disappointed. Graham & Sylvia Porter

Sunnylea Homes did a complete renovation of the entire main floor of our home as well as master shower. Geno and the team were always professional and so easy to work with. The quality of work done was top—notch! Our home feels brand new and we have received so many wonderful comments from friends and family about what an amazing transformation was completed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sunnylea Homes to anyone and would absolutely use the team again for any future Reno’s! Thanks for the great job!

Working with Sunnylea was a dream come true! Our team had bought a property for investment purposes and needed a clean, modern, quick renovation. After seeing Sunnylea's past work and experience, it was a no brainer to reach out. Marino was a charm to work with, he was very respectful, honest, and always on time. Our renovation turned out to be even better than expected, and finished up earlier than expected as well! 5 out of 5 stars, would highly recommend working with this family orientated company!

Great company! Staff is very knowledgeable and experienced.

It was an easy choice choosing Sunnylea Homes for our home renovations. We needed a to tear up our carpet and install hardwood flooring within our townhome. Marino and the Sunnylea team were informative, professional and efficient every step of the way. Marino answered every question with a knowledgeable and timely response. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product! We love our new floors and have to thank Sunnylea for their hard work and dedication to this project! If you have renovations to be done, look no further than Sunnylea Homes! Thanks again Marino, Geno and the Sunnylea Homes Team!

Sunnylea Homes recently renovated my bathroom. I was very impressed. Marino helped me with every last detail, from sourcing the right fixtures to painting and lighting. Everyone on the team was professional as well as pleasant. High quality work and craftsmanship! My new bathroom is absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend Sunnylea Homes!
