“We could not recommend Alan Grieco and his crew more vehemently than we already are.
From the very first visit to review our project in order to develop a quote, Alan showed creativity to identify options for our project’s challenges as well as a vision of what the end result could be. He was an easy choice to with whom to sign!
When looking for contractors to interview, we wanted some confidence in our options up front which is why we focused on the Baeumler Approved program. Alan embodies everything we know about what a contractor should be, who is endorsed by Bryan Baeumler. Throughout the project, Alan was extremely in touch with our needs and was constantly providing a daily status (sometimes 2x per day) along with providing continual heads up on the decisions required about materials. He and the team provided constant attention to detail and stopped work the minute they saw anything that didn’t make sense in order to involve us in the solution.
There was no nickle & diming us – Alan believes in full client satisfaction and constantly goes the extra mile to achieve it. Any options that did require additional funding were fully discussed along with the options and more than sufficient time was provided to make a decision.
Alan became a part of the family over our 10 week project – he and the crew were completely interactive with each one of us, including our daughters.
Again, I could not recommend Alan more – he was a fabulous contractor and we are so thrilled with the end result. It was like having Bryan Baeumler in charge of our project!”

“Alan and the Capolavoro team,
We just wanted to take a moment to let you know how happy we are with the look and feel of our updated home. It was a lot of hard work and the results are amazing!
After consultations with several contractors, we decided to go with Capolavoro as we felt Alan understood our vision, our needs, and our budget.
Alan’s expertise offered us options within our timeframe as it was important to us that the work is done by a certain date. There are 5 of us living in the home and scheduling can be tricky. Alan advised us that this total home renovation would take approximately 3 months and he was on target and finished as per our agreement. Within this timeframe, he oversaw and scheduled multiple trades to ensure a well-coordinated renovation.
Every day Alan would provide us with updates, walk-throughs and if required alternate suggestions. He was also able to keep me calm, especially when we discovered broken cast iron pipes beneath the basement floors. Alan made sure to explain every step and details along the way.
The work done within our basement renovation included a new bedroom, family room, new bathroom, laundry room, canteen, enlarged furnace room and our favourite The Lego Room. This room was designed specifically for our younger son who absolutely loves his own space. The main floor living area was reconfigured to ensure our most required need for functionality was met. Our new kitchen is spacious and the center of attention. The upstairs washroom was redesigned to meet the needs of elderly/aging parents and Alan suggested we install grab bars and a fold down bench seat. This certainly makes it easier for everyone. Alan and his team made sure to respect our home at all times and cleaned up at the end of each day.
Great job and a pleasure to work with!“
“Alan and his guys came in to build an in-law suite for us. Not only was their workmanship great, but their attitude was also as well. Always willing to help, constantly asking before doing and going the extra mile. They were a pleasure to have around AND finished the work on schedule! In addition, they were all great with my 3-year-old and my pets. I couldn’t have asked for more and wouldn’t hesitate to use Alan again, or recommend him to others!”
Cathy & John
“Al was recommended to us by a family member who had their main bathroom fully renovated by him and his team. They could not say enough good things and we learned why very quickly.
It was a pleasure working with Al for our basement reno’s – we required new plumbing to re-do the bathroom to include a shower. The work required the floor to be dug up, all new piping and relocation of where facilities went. He was eager to share what he knows and provided tips on everything. He was key in helping us see the whole project and guided us in making the right decisions on other work we had to do.
Al is generous with his time and knowledge, is always smiling and does what he says he is going to do and when he says he will do it. He is upfront and honest and we very highly recommend him and his team.“
“Top quality work done by a reliable contractor at a fair price – that’s Capolavoro Renovation Inc. Last fall I took possession of an older home and immediately discovered serious plumbing and electrical problems. I was overwhelmed and didn’t know where to turn. A relative recommended Alan at Capolavoro. Alan responded immediately and came to my rescue. His prompt action,, competence and flexibility in dealing with each new issue that arose gave me a peace of mind that I wouldn’t have believed possible under such stressful circumstances. He looked after everything for me, calling in other professionals from his extensive network of trusted contacts when necessary. I cannot say enough about how positive this experience was for me. Alan returned in January to complete further renovations to my home, again to the highest standards of quality. Thank you Alan and Corey!!
Paula & Mike
“From start to finish we were very pleased with your team and the work provided. All work was completed on time and each stage of the project was completed within budget. We were most impressed with the high standard you impose upon your output product. The end result is one beautiful bathroom created out of empty space. We would definitely contact your company again without reservation.”
Michelle & David
“Ours certainly wasn’t a straightforward job! Thank you for your patience, creativity and flexible thinking to complete our bathroom to our wishes and in keeping with the character of our older home.
We appreciated your professionalism. The quality of your work and the integrity of your character. It has been a pleasure working with you and Corey!“
“We hired Alan to help us update a new house we had purchased in April 2016. In total, we had to redo 2 bathrooms, a kitchen floor, a den floor, and finish our basement (quite a lot). We met with three contractors and choose to go with Alan as he seemed to have a very realistic approach and was straight forward and knowledgeable about all of our needs. Well, boy are we lucky we choose him! Not only did he finish early, and with a very high level of detail and quality, but he finished below our estimated budget! He was so easy to communicate with, and we even asked for a few extra things around the house and he was always obliging and very professional. When I get more work done in the future, I won’t bother getting multiple quotes, we will definitely be going back to Alan, and I highly recommend the same for anyone else!”
Mr. R. Spadaccini
“Honest! Professional! Incredible!
I recently purchased a new home and hired CapoLavoro Renovation Inc (owner Alan Grieco) to fully finish my entire basement, adding a bathroom, bedroom, laundry room, and family room. From the start, Mr. Grieco provided great ideas and outlined all options to satisfy my needs within my budget. It’s clear that Mr. Grieco always has the customer first in mind and it was NEVER about financial gain, on the contrary, Alan and his team even provided extra work that was not included in my contract, free of charge!! Alan was thorough in his work, answering all of my questions and explaining the process in its entirety….without “shortcuts”. One can clearly see that he takes pride in his work. Alan and his wonderful team of professionals were always punctual, pleasant and went the extra mile in providing absolute exceptional service. I would recommend Alan and his team over and over!
Bravo… A job well done!!”
“Alan and his crew renovated our bathroom last fall and 6 months late we are still delighted with the results. Our new bathroom is a joy to use and we are no longer embarrassed to point our guests in the direction of the bathroom.
It was a pleasure to deal with the crew during the renovation. Corey, who did most of the day to day work on the renovation, was extremely helpful when decisions need to be made or issues needed to be addressed and was clearly dedicated to the quality of the work and to provide us with a bathroom that meets our needs. The work crews were clean, on time and reliable and the work was started on the agreed date and was completed promptly.
The work was completed for the agreed upon price which was highly competitive.
We would have no reservations about hiring Alan and his crew again nor about recommending them to our friends.
Thank You Alan.”
“My first experience with my home renovation was tough and time-consuming. Deadlines were missed, the quality of work was off and I was disappointed. After this experience, I decided to hold off on the remaining renovations I wanted to complete in my home.
Then a friend referred me to Capolavoro Renovations and told me that I would only be happy with Alan and his team and the end result. Alan came to my home, answered all of my questions, and provided me with a quote. Instantly I was comfortable. Alan was professional, committed, flexible, and accommodating about my choices. I then decided to complete my basement with Alan and his team. They finished a large open space, an office space, a storage space, and a two-piece bathroom in my home.
Alan and his team also helped to clean up the mess/issues that were caused by previous renovators such as catching plumbing and other construction issues that saved me from future problems.
Alan and his team are first rate. Every one of them is professional and dedicated. They were respectful and considerate of our home and my family. It was a pleasure to have them in my home on a daily basis and they are always welcome. They are committed and always on time. The quality of their work is flawless and speaks for itself.
Renovations with Capolavoro are easy, seamless, and the way to go for anyone looking for a small or big job. This team exceeds all expectations and I am confident to refer Capolavoro to anyone!”
Karl & Denise Berzins
“Our first project with Alan Grieco at Capolavoro Renovations was in the ensuite bathroom of the master bedroom. Alan and his assistant Corey removed an old shabby shower stall, built a ledge and tiled a new shower stall, creating a larger brighter space. Alan also replaced two old sinks and faucets and the toilet. He coordinated his work with our plans to paint the room ourselves and install new baseboards, thinking ahead for our convenience in what order the work should proceed. When the faucet in our other bathroom broke during the week, Alan stayed after working hours to fix it, providing the needed piece from his supplies at no charge to us. He always arrived on time and cleaned up before leaving each day. He and Corey were always polite and never wasted time on the job. Alan took time to show me how to remove the faucet filter and clean it.
We were so pleased with the appearance and the quality of the installations that we scheduled another job with Alan to tile our kitchen floor. Again he and Corey arrived promptly each day, completed the work efficiently and exactly on the schedule that Alan estimated. It helps in planning our own schedules knowing almost to the hour how long Alan needs for his work. Also, I never hesitated to leave the house for a dental appointment with Alan or Corey in the house. Now we are planning to finish our basement and Alan is our man for the job.
Thank you, Alan, for your care and workmanship. We heartily recommend you to other homeowners.”
Sharon & Stan Wolfe
“Alan Grieco of Capolavoro Renovations has worked on two of our renovations projects.
The first one was to install a large double-sink vanity, complete with faucets, installing a glass tile backsplash and mounting a very large mirror over the vanity.
The second project included building a ½ wall at the top of our stairs, updating all of the upstairs door frames and baseboards, the installation of double doors, installation of crown moulding in the master bedroom, painting, and hardwood installation. We are very pleased with the results of both of these projects.
Mr. Grieco’s manner is pleasant and professional, the quality of the workmanship is excellent. He works with tradespeople that have the same attitude towards customer satisfaction and quality and we appreciated that he managed all aspects of this project. Mr.Grieco was always accessible if we had a question. He arrived on time and he and his crew always cleaned up before they left for the day.
We highly recommend Capolavoro Renovations.”
Alexandra & Doug Carnegie
“Just a quick note to say Thank You for your excellent work on our recent bathroom renovation. Your cooperative and innovative attitude was refreshing. Your attention to detail resulted in a quality job. Most renovators take a let me do it all approach resulting in the client feeling pressured to buy what the renovator suggests versus what the client wants. You helped us with our choices and then put everything in place just the way we wanted it. A rewarding experience. Please feel free to have prospective clients contact us for a reference.”
Liz & John
“Our new master bathroom shower is amazing! Your skilled work is superb and totally affordable. You demonstrated commitment and dedication rebuilding our downstairs bathroom. Your communication skills, unique ideas, and work ethic are certainly an asset to your company. We are totally satisfied with your professional renovations in our home and will definitely recommend you to others. Thank you for your outstanding work.”
Rachel & Terrence Gill
“Thank you, Alan and the Capolavoro Renovation Team!
Having just moved, we wanted to finish the basement right away so we could enjoy it as part of our new dream home! We collected several quotes but aside from being out of our budget the contractors we had contacted were unable to meet with our tight timeline. The basement was to be used as a home daycare for children and needed to be finished by Sept 1st! Having heard horror stories from friends/family about projects like this stretching on for months we were a little nervous but felt immediately at ease with Alan and decided to trust his word that it would be complete in time for
Not only was Alan and his crew confident enough to promise us a Sept 1st finish they even managed to complete the project 2 weeks early! Wow! Alan and his team were incredibly respectful of me, my fiancé and our home (they even lay down a paper covering on our floors so as not to damage it while they walked in and out! Little touches like this do not go unnoticed), they were punctual and worked hard each day, taking pride in the work they were doing and making us aware of each step allowing us to ask questions when we had them. Knowing we were completing the basement as a daycare Alan and his team even took it upon themselves to make suggestions that we had not thought of to make the space as practical and safe for children as possible. Not only were they finishing the basement but they were actually taking the time to think through ways to make it the best it could be for the purpose we were intending it for. They held true to every promise they made and really made our first experience working with a contractor better than we ever could have hoped!
We would 100% recommend Capolavoro Renovation to anyone and plan to call on them again when our next project presents itself!
Thank you so much for helping to make our house a home!”

“When I heard that my good friend Alan now was a contractor, I said to myself, ho, ho not another Tim THE TOOLMAN Taylor. Joke’s aside, I knew that I would be very pleased and happy with the results.
Alan is always professional and on time. My budget was tight and he was able to make it happen.
This small apartment bathroom now looks much bigger and brighter than ever. Thanks for the good work, friendly advice and the good company!!!”

“Once again you and your crew outdid yourselves on the renovation of our home. Your company and crew amazed us with their knowledge, talents, and professionalism in all aspects of this major renovation. The contract you have with other companies saved us time and money.
We love what you’ve done to our home. It reflects our needs and has made our home a place we can finally enjoy. We are so proud of the outcome and cannot stop bragging about our new home and Capolavoro.
We really enjoyed working with you and as with our washroom renovation that you did in June, we are extremely satisfied and highly recommend Capolavoro for any and all renovation needs you may want or require.
The compliments have been plentiful from family and friends, not to mention from people who just drop by to see what was done.
Your motto of Another Quality Renovation is justifiable. Thanks.”
Ken, Lyla & Amanda (Cassie and Misty – the furballs)
“CAPOLAVORO – The Company we recommend for your renovation needs.
Alan – Not only the owner, a person whose hands-on work ensured we received expert service and advice that made a possible nightmare an experience that was actually pleasant.
Prompt – When advised the team would be here at 7:30 a.m. we knew it was going to be NO sleeping in that day!
Organized – When the job is as big as the one we entrusted to Alan it was comforting to know he considered every detail about the job as well as our daily comfort.
Lucky – The TV never lies. How lucky we are to have found this company. You never have to worry about being the next project on Holmes on Holmes.
Astounding – A word that accurately describes our wonderful new kitchen.
Very Pleased – Obvious right?
Original – easily describes the design concepts and ingenuity of this Company and its team.
Respect – The advice and guidance provided by Alan gained them our utmost respect and appreciation.
Our Cats – Who cares? We do!! Our two house cats were kept safe and sound throughout all the demolition and reconstruction. Everyone on this crew knew that our priority above all else were these two furballs. The care and steps taken by everyone on the crew to ensure they did not get out or hurt were not only appreciated but caused additional work that was not only never mentioned by Capolavoro but also never charged for.
If you are doubtful of this testimonial, we would be happy to show you first hand.

“Thank for the excellent renovation work which you recently completed. I am so impressed and delighted by the professional quality of workmanship. Your commitment to detail and customer satisfaction is most evident.
What impressed me most was your genuine interest in ensuring quality and timely work while providing a superior end product. I also appreciated the way you would provide me with cost saving suggestions and your continuing commitment to keep your costs within or under your initial quotation. It gave me some real sense of control and ownership of the work.
When I did my initial research on local renovators and was able to review all the cost estimates, I was almost hesitant to hire you because your cost was far below some other quotes for similar work. I felt that your cheaper cost would reflect cheaper craftmanship. You certainly proved me wrong!
I have and will continue to recommend you to my friends and neighbours and am most proud of my new bathrooms. Looking forward to having you return for my kitchen in the near future!
Thank you for a job well done!”
Eric & Thyra Aymes
“Just wanted to say how pleased we are with the fence you erected around our property last year. We are very pleased with the results. At the time we marveled at how quickly you worked, yet how easy you made it look! All the way through, you were pleasant and courteous. We received excellent advice on design and usage, and choosing suitable materials. There was no wastage or overcharging. You are definitely the builder of choice – one we trust and continually recommend.”
Al & Grace Lewis
“We’ve had our new fence for a few days now and we just want to let you know how happy we are with your work. The fence is very well constructed, it looks good and will last for many years. We would recommend your work and professionalism to others.
Ken & Lyla Jones
“Alan, we are so lucky that you were recommended as a contractor. In June 2007, you and your crew came to our house and made the impossible, possible. You took what we considered a rundown washroom (ugly colours, small and broken down) and made it beautiful. Words cannot express how lucky we were.
You can see the pride you took in your work. You were very professional and accommodating. The fact that you were very knowledgeable and able to give us guidance assisted in getting the job done with very little disruption to us.
We are so pleased with the outcome that we keep inviting people over to see our new washroom. The comments are all the same, what a great job, the colours really work well together and the washroom looks bigger and brighter.
We highly recommend Capolavoro Renovations for your future renovation needs. We also look forward to working with you again as we renovate our kitchen
and living room area.”
“My fences and gazebo were done by Capolavoro. I am writing to testify that I am quite happy with the excellent job. Specifically, the job was of good quality; the company took my needs into consideration; the service was satisfactory, and the price was reasonable. I would recommend this company to friends.
Thank you Alan.”
Finally got around to doing my testimonial.
I just wanted to say thanks for the great work on my porch. The work was done quickly and professionally and there wasn’t even a trace of the old porch. You ensured that everything was cleaned up from my yard. Everyone that has come by has been commenting on how good the new porch looks.
I would recommend your work to anyone.”
Thank you Alan.”
