A few kind words from our valued clients

Steve came out and was very courteous and understanding to my needs. He offered design ideas for the basement renovation and definitely knew what he was doing. He made quite a bit of extra effort to make us happy and we were thrilled with his team member’s work. Very professional, high quality workmanship. I would highly recommend him and his team for any type of home renovation. They are knowledgeable, experienced, professional and courteous.


KITCHEN RENOVATION: From the first time we met with Heartland Renovations to discuss the scope of the project, we were at ease. Steve listened to us and translated our dreams for our dream kitchen into a concrete plan to bring our desires to reality. He made many innovative suggestions we had never even considered to totally transform our kitchen. Heartland’s trades were punctual, respectful and highly skilled. The quality of the work was exceptional. We are very satisfied with the end result and feel we got great value for our budget versus what other companies quoted us. We love our new kitchen!

Out of all the contractors I met, Heartland Construction and Renovations was by far the best. Steve brought a team of talented, knowledgeable, experienced and skilled professionals when it came to renovating our basement. He completely transformed our basement into more than we ever envisioned and treated like family. If you are looking for a company with smart, efficient, honest, and dedicated workers, then you should definitely get in touch with Heartland Construction and Renovations. What an amazing experience – I would repeat it again in a heartbeat.


We hired Heartland Construction to remove a load bearing wall and install a beam. I’ve never worked with such a great company for renovations before. Steve always kept us informed as to what was going on and when they would be performing the work. His men always showed up when he said they would. He took pictures along the way to show the inspector what was done. They cleaned up very well too. When the inspector came he wad very impressed with their work and stated “these guys always do a great job”. He was impressed that they installed the beam flush with the ceiling and said that most contractors won’t do that because it’s too much work, most will let the beam drop down from the ceiling a bit. Heartland’s price was reasonable and their service and work excellent. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
