5/5

I highly recommend City and Country Contracting. I can’t say enough about them; from their quality of work, amazing service, follow ups and overall worry free remodeling of our kitchen.

Shayne and Emily are just a pleasure to deal with and we always felt we were in good hands. We were in a time crunch to get the work done before Christmas as we had a bunch of relatives coming. Emily put in long days and stayed until the work was done. She ensured everything was in working order and we would be ok to celebrate the Holiday Season.

All that with a smile and pleasant attitude. If you need any work done in your house do not hesitate to contact City and Country Contracting. They are very professional and competitively priced.
Great experience!!!

Response from the owner

Thank you Roberta! It was a pleasure working with you on your kitchen project. Thanks again!

I had City & Country handle two of our bathroom remodels that needed to happen at the same time. Due to scheduling of subcontractors the project took quite a bit longer than planned but the team pulled together and delivered two absolutely beautiful bathrooms. They were also very easy to communicate with and very open to working with me on my detailed design plan.

Response from the owner

Thank you Kelly, it was great working with you on your bathrooms! We are very sorry for the delays but hope the final product is everything you hoped for 🙂

City & Country is a contractor that you want to do business with. Shayne and his team are thorough, dependable and trustworthy. I am very happy with the finished product of the renovation on my Solarium when it was completed.

 Shayne is a stand-up guy. He stands by his word and work which is refreshing these days. I completely recommend this company.

Response from the owner

Thank you Dwight! We are so so happy that we could help you turn your old solarium into a really neat, usable space.

We hired City & Country Contracting to renovate a fireplace, install new baseboards and casings throughout the house, and reno 2 bathrooms. Communication and responsiveness were absolutely top notch as we had struggled with many many other contractors during quoting prior to meeting Shayne. Throughout the entire process they kept us in the loop for scheduling and execution.

The work by Ross and his crew turned out absolutely flawless. They paid attention to every detail and consulted with us along the way to make sure we were happy with the end result. Ross made sure that all of the work done by subs was also perfect. They made me feel like I did not have to worry about shortcuts, workmanship, or design at all and I trusted them completely with the level of attention to detail they brought. I would not hesitate to use City & Country on any renovations we plan in the future. Thanks Shayne, Ross and Kyle for everything we are so happy with the end result.

Shayne overhauled my entire kitchen and laid new flooring in my entrance hall, kitchen and main bathroom. His crew also did some crown moulding and installed new baseboards, all of which was done very efficiently and on time.

Shayne was very professional, accommodating and went above the call of duty. I love my new renos and would definitely hire City and Country Contracting for any future projects. I will be recommending him to all my friends & family!

Response from the owner

Thank you for the kind words Sheila, we were happy to work with you. Thanks again!

Jillian Kirby

5/5

We hired Shayne and his team to come in and completely overhaul our basement and suite. To say we were a bit nervous and intimidated was an understatement.

But Shayne’s amazing professionalism, his constant attention to the smallest of details, his consistent updates and communication, and most importantly, his priority on his clients’ comfort and preferences, made this reno easy and stress-free. We can’t wait to have Shayne back for the next project. I will be recommending him to all of my family and friends!

Response from the owner

Thank you Jillian, it was a pleasure working with you and your family!

I’ve been stalling on renovating some other areas of our home, but after seeing the quality of work done on our main bathroom I will definitely be giving Shayne a call again!

Thanks Jordan!

Thank you so much to Shayne and his team for building our beautiful studio. We were so impressed with their amazing work ethics and wonderful attitudes.

They answered all our questions and discussed all our ideas and options – they were always happy to help and interested in our project (which was on time and on budget! rare these days!).

We absolutely recommend Shayne, and once you meet him you will have the same great trust in his expertise and integrity that we did.

I had City & Country Contracting come and replace my fence for me in July. Every team member that took part in this project was totally and completely professional. I felt as though they truly cared about the project and the final outcome. Laurence was incredibly helpful in finding the specific type of fencing that I was looking for. Plus, I received a free exterior pressure wash thanks to a promotion they had going on. When they left, they left everything clean when the project was done, and they finished the project faster than expected.

I would recommend City & Country Contracting to all my friends and family.

Response from the owner

Thank you Kathy, happy to help!

We worked with Shayne @ City & Country Contacting Ltd. We hired him to add a door to connect our upstairs to our downstairs (where there was previously just a blank wall), as well as adding trim to our doors and windows in our garage. 

Shayne and his team had great communication (via phone, text, and email). The end results were exactly what we were hoping for! The quality of the work was top-notch, and I would highly recommend City & Country to others! Thanks again! 🙂

Thank you Kathy, happy to help!

We used City & Country Contracting for our strata townhomes to replace several exterior doors & frames. Everyone on council including myself were extremely impressed with City & Country work. They came and did a fantastic job replacing/painting roughly 6 units exterior doors and frames. They worked hard, and were very proficient on getting the job done well. I have been more than pleased to refer anyone to this company, and will use them for many years to come on my personal property.

Response from the owner

Thank you Mirza, it was so nice to work with such a great Strata and Council at Meadowview. Happy to work with you and Strata again in the future.

Thank you!

City & Country was hired to tackle a long-standing painting problem inside our Condo’s Courtyard this Summer. Our Council had been given wrong advice over the years in regards to the type of paint to use that always failed due to irrigation and rain on our exposed concrete pony walls and planter boxes.

Lawrence, City & Country’s paint supervisor, and Fraser, the painting foreman had all the right ideas and game plan to tackle a very difficult under- taking. As a retired Foreman and a sitting council member at my Condo building for many years, I’ve dealt with a lot of contractors. I have to say that City & Country is a very professional company that was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.

They did an outstanding job that has transformed our Courtyard into something that has made us council members shine with our decision to hire them. We have been given many compliments from the owners since then. Moving forward, City & Country we be our go to Strata contracting company for all of our future contracting needs. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend City & Country as a contracting company.

The company’s integrity starts at the top with the company’s owner Shayne Finskars and flows downwards to all of his staff. Shayne stands by his word and commitment to delivering to what’s promised when you sign that contract.

Response from the owner

Hi Don,

It was great working with you and the rest of your strata. Your party was easy to communicate with and very understanding of all the dynamics involved. We truly appreciate your business and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thank you!

We have city & country did the completely renovation for our kitchen , including a wok kitchen. Shayne and Carter are professional and so helpful for everything we concerned and eager to satisfy our asking. There were also electric men and plumbing guys and painters in their team. We are so happy to have them do the jobs. We’ll recommend them to our friends once they need to renovate their kitchen.

The results are stunning.
