Bill is a very reliable, skilled, and punctual contractor. When we made or asked for slight modifications to our project he met the challenges professionally and with a positive attitude.
Bill has transformed our troublesome and tired old shower into the new, sparkling jewel of our home.
He has a work ethic that you rarely see today.
Thank you for the hard work and the amazing new shower and the other ensuite improvements.

Bill just completed, March 2019, a major job for me, finishing my entire basement and renovating my main bathroom. I am a widow and being on my own, it was absolutely wonderful to have an honest, competent, meticulous contractor to guide me through such a huge project. Right from day one, when we negotiated the contract, I was so impressed by Bill’s professionalism, his reasonable rates and excellent work ethic which continued when he started the job and right through to completion. Bill arrives absolutely punctual each day, keeps you informed on what will be done, gives good expert advice and always replies to phone calls right away. I cannot emphasize how phenomenal he is! Bill and his apprentice, James were a pleasure to have in my home each day for almost a month. Do not hesitate to hire B & A Renovations for any job you may have need of. You will not be disappointed! It is wonderful to know that an honest quality company still exists. I recommend B & A Renovations 100% for price, quality and integrity.

We needed our bathroom renovated and needed a contractor to do the work.  We contacted B&A Renovations Inc.  along with 2 others.  Bill was here the next day to look at the job and by the end of the day we had a phone call with the estimate.  Of the 3 estimates we received, Bill’s was the lowest.  He told us the job would take 4 days but was finished in 2 1/2 days.  He said everything just fell into place.  Bill is friendly, easy to work with and on time to start each morning.  He laid down tarps to cover our carpeted stairs and the work area for protection.  He took care to make sure nothing was left laying around after each days work ended.  It’s nice to know we were dealing with a Better Business Bureau accredited and  insured contractor.  We love our bathroom and are very pleased with the work Bill and his employee Nathan did for us.  We highly recommend B&A Renovations and already have already given our recommendation to some people.  Thanks Bill & Nathan for a job well done!

B&A Renovations was our last hope.  We received their flyer at our door and, after getting frustrated with the service of several other foundation repair companies in Ottawa, we thought we'd try one more company. After our first message left on their voicemail, Bill called us back the same day. In fact, he called us for everything and we found that open communication a welcomed change.

We sent pictures of our situation, Bill let us know immediately that he had looked at them and what he was proposing as a repair (this was the point at which the other companies stopped communicating with us).  He kept us informed at every stage and after every conversation with his foundation repair man.  We always knew what was going on and Bill always called us when he said he would.  There was no guessing, no worrying and no surprises- until the day of the actual repair.  It ended up being less work than planned and while Bill could have told us stories about costs etc. and charged us the full amount as quoted, he dropped the cost by about 50%.

In an industry that we found to be very opaque, incredibly frustrating and full of bs, B&A Renovations was an honest, transparent company who came through for us in a timely, respectful manner.  We would not hesitate to work with Bill again, or to recommend him to anyone.  Thank you for everything!!

This is the fourth time, since 2000,  that we’ve contracted Bill and Nathan to do work around our house.  We’re again very pleased with the work done for our new kitchen and basement wall & door.  The thing we like about B&A Reno is that when there is something additional to do, like our leaky floor from improperly installed dishwasher, a new piece of floor board gets installed without hesitation or budget woes.  The plumbing work for the new sink/faucet/dishwasher and new counters/cupboards looks absolutely amazing.

It is refreshing to have an honest to goodness local business that harkens back to the good old days of ‘customer service’.  During the kitchen reno, shut-off valves were installed first to allow the family to continue to use the water while the work progressed.

Don’t be put off by the down payment to secure your quote; it’s a great way to secure the date for your work to start.  Then you can rest assured that the job will be done to your satisfaction when it’s completed on schedule and within your budget.

We highly recommend Bill and Nathan for any job around your home.   It is so true, no job is too big or too small for this dynamic duo.

“Just had an en-suite bathroom remodel done by B&A Renovations. It was the first time we contracted with them but were extremely pleased.

From start to finish communications with Bill was fantastic. He arrived promptly to see the job /discuss the scope and followed up with a quote that evening. He responded to e-mails very quickly and was very flexible in his approach. The rates were surprisingly reasonable and his team remained on scope, schedule and budget. Most importantly, the workmanship and end result were excellent. What more could a customer hope for.

I would not hesitate to use B&A Renovations services again in the future.

I am writing to express my joy and complete satisfaction since the front deck of my house was renovated in June of this year. It was back in the early spring that we contacted your company to provide an estimate on the work to take down the old concrete reinforced deck and put up a new PT wooden deck.

At the time, you provided us with a thorough estimate and an indication as to when you would appear to do the renovation. Because of your interest and professionalism at that time, we hired you to do the work on the deck.

My daughter followed up with you in mid May and early June because we were looking forward to the work being done. I am more than pleased with the way you conducted yourself and the expertise you demonstrated while completing the work on the front deck. Your team arrived promptly each morning and the work began as you had said in mid June.

Now, I sit on the deck and enjoy the view with the peace of mind knowing you were the right man for this job. It is for this reason that I highly recommend you and your company for any renovation a homeowner may need.

Bill, thank you for taking such care with our yard. The new sod we had you install is looking wonderful.
Your team was efficient and professional in completing the job especially in the heat.

Thank you again, we love our yard!

It's hard to find a honest and professional contractor to do some renovations on our homes. Once I hired B&A Renovations to put in a shower in my basement and change my laundry room around I soon found out that B&A had what I was looking for : Honest, Quality and guaranteed work... any type of work that you need to do in your home, don't hesitate to call B&A. You won't be disappointed. This fall I actually plan to call B&A to do some work in my bathroom and other

My Shed roof looks fabulous- Thanks for getting the job done so quickly, makes me realize what a mess it was when you see the job done properly.

Satisfied Customer

Hi Bill
Thank you so much for the work you did on my porch. I have received many compliments on how nice it looks.
It is a pleasure to sit there and not worry about the work that needs to be done! I was truly impressed with the fact that you came when you said you would, you stayed and completed the work, tidied up and took away the mess when you left.
Thank you again so much.

I am a senior citizen living on a fixed income, and a while back I realized that the roof of my house had to be re-shingled.

I proceeded to obtain several estimates and B&A Renovations came in with the best offer and got the job, including replacement of the eaves-trough.

I was a bit apprehensive about awarding the job to a contractor, of which I knew so little about it's reputation, (considering the horror stories one hears of all the rip-off artists around).

I was soon to be pleasantly surprised. The work carried out was well done Mr. Bill Triemstra and his team took great pride in their workmanship.

Mid way through the project it was discovered that the one side of the roof needed to have the plywood replaced as well as the shingles. I secretly cringed
thinking that "This is the time that B&A Renovations would raise the ante", but Mr. Triemstra provided a quote that was reasonable and more than fair.

The project was finished on time, and before leaving the team conducted a thorough clean up of the area to ensure that no debris remained.
I could not have asked for better results.

It is a pleasant surprise to find someone who still takes pride in the quality of their work and I would not hesitate to recommend B&A Renovations to anyone considering them for a project.

Hi Bill,
Just a note to thank you for the great job you did on our new deck this summer.
Everything about the project went smoothly. You arrived when you said you would,
the removal of the old deck was completed promptly with no mess.
The installation was done in a couple of days and the result is a beautiful new deck which we are very pleased with.
Thank you for the professional way in which you conduct business.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and neighbours.

I was so impressed by the work provided by Bill and Nathan at B & A Renovations. They converted our loft into a fourth bedroom in January 2016. Not only did the completed room exceed my expectations, it was also done on time and budget. The level of customer service we received was excellent. Thank you Bill!
