We originally approached Aaron and Justin about doing a kitchen and bathroom reno at our 100-year old house. From the first moment I contacted them, they were incredibly responsive to all of my questions (which were many!). Leading up to the signing of our renovation contract, it never took more than a few hours for them to get back to me with any question, and that trend continued on throughout the entire renovation.
As we had an older home, of course the kitchen and bathroom renovation mushroomed into a much larger project, but Aaron and Justin were consummate professionals throughout the entire process. Our budget and timeline barely increased from what they originally quoted us for, and they were very faithful to stick as best they could to the original budget we discussed. We had regular updates on how things were going, what they were costing, and regular invoices for installment payments. Originally the project was supposed to go on for 6 weeks, but by my estimation came in at about 8 weeks all told – which is insanely fast, considering we added HVAC work, subfloor repairs, and an entire second floor to our renovation scope. They regularly worked on weekends and late into the evening to get our project done as soon as possible. We were able to live in our home for most of the renovation solely because of how clean, neat, and respectful they and all their subcontractors were of our space.
I would work with them again in a heartbeat. I think this was probably the least stressful renovation in the history of the world, as they just made everything so easy. Our home is completely gorgeous now, all thanks to their hard work and design suggestions. If you’re thinking about renovating anything, call them today!

The project was managed to my total satisfaction, from design to actual completion, in less than the originally planned schedule. The tradesmen were high quality, punctual, respectful and above all – excellent professional workers.
It has been indeed a privilege to work with Aaron Zon and his team and I can wholeheartedly recommend Home Guru – will definitely use them myself for any future projects. Keep up the good work.

Home Guru was a pleasure to work with. They completed a renovation of our living/dining room and installed custom cabinets within the quoted time and price. Justin and Aaron were attentive and responsive and the quality of their work was excellent. I would recommend Home Guru without hesitation.

Working with Home Guru to replace our front porch was great. They were professional, friendly and efficient. The process and results exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them!

Home Guru was possibly the best contractor experience we’ve ever had. They were timely; their estimate was accurate; communication and updates were super helpful; everyone on their team was pleasant to work with; and, the quality of the work was excellent.

Aaron and Justin renovated our kitchen for us. They were great!
They communicated clearly with me, providing me with written quotes, and daily updates along the way. They stayed on budget and showed up when they said they would, on time. The work was completed exactly within the time frame they estimated and they were very meticulous about cleaning up after themselves when they were done.

Home Guru did much more for us than a deck. They gutted our kitchen and re-did it, they added a bathroom, and they made an old extension livable and bright.
They showed up every day, they were honest, and they had great design ideas. Not the cheapest, but not unreasonable, and reliable.

From the first day we contacted Home Guru, they were responsive, highly competent, and reliable. Our project was a new build and they took the time to work with us to design a home automation system that fit both our needs and budget. Their installation skills, foresight, and troubleshooting are top-notch. Their level of service is fantastic and these guys really take pride in their work. In the months following the completion of the project, they have remained as responsive and reliable as the first day, which is a testament to the pride they take in their work. We carry pretty high standards and its very hard to find companies that provide the level of personalized service that Home Guru does! We would definitely recommend Home Guru to anyone looking for any level of home automation.
Aaron and Justin were great to work with. They showed up promptly and cleaned up after themselves. Their ideas for lighting in our kitchen, family room, hallway and basement gave us better lighting that is more efficient and cost saving in the long run. It looks great and we are very happy.
Great new kitchen! Home Guru fully managed the project. I didn’t have to do a thing. Cupboards were manufactured within 3 weeks of picking them and one week to install the entire kitchen. It looks awesome! Great style, storage and workmanship.
Our existing deck was in terrible condition, rotting wood and not a functional use of space at all. Aaron and Justin quickly provided a conceptual drawing to replace the old deck with a new, modern, well-designed space complete with storage and privacy wall. In deck lighting was a great add on. The Gurus are extremely hard working and were not satisfied until we were 100% happy with the finished product.
The Home Guru’s were amazing. They came in with great ideas and solutions for what we needed, were fast and their attention to detail is fabulous. They were also very neat which was much appreciated! Very happy!
Home Guru outfitted our entire home with Smart Home technology, from the lighting to the home theatre, door locks, climate control, and more. Their custom solutions to conceal all the equipment was amazing. Things are hidden in the walls and the rest is in a nice rack in the basement tucked out of the way. Everything works seamlessly and the customer service we got was impeccable. We highly recommend Home Guru and we love our new smart home.

When my wife and I first decided to implement a home theatre system, we spent many Sunday afternoons looking in “big box” stores trying to figure out what we should purchase. It was difficult to decipher the true meaning of all the “techy talk”. As we read and learned about the material, we realized that most of the sales people in these stores are under trained.
When we first spoke to Justin Brooks from Smart Home Guru, we were impressed by his ability to carefully listen to our needs and wants. Based on our conversations, he presented us with several scenarios and reviewed the pros and cons of each scenario with us. Justin showed us how, with very little additional expense, we could take advantage of the wiring that had to be installed so that we could gain additional functionality through the rest of the house. We then agreed on an approach that would maximize our home theatre experience.
We are delighted with the phenomenal quality and usability of the system that they implemented for us. From the component selection to the clean and well thought out installation, the professionalism of this team is evident.

Justin and Aaron,
Lindsay and I want to thank you for always being on top of things. You’ve both impressed us tremendously.
We would always be happy for you to use our home as a tool for future business.

With a team of supporting professionals to handle every part of the project. The Guru Team has an eye on detail that sets them apart from other contractors and I highly recommend anyone to consult with GURU Inc. for your next renovation.
Best Plumbing Inc
As a plumber I have worked with many contractors. The gurus are by far my favourite contractor to work for. They are extremely professional from beginning to end. My work goes smooth because they always have everything prepped and ready for me. I have been working for them for a while, and I have never gone more than 48 hours without getting paid. It’s always a pleasure working for them.
I have worked with Home Guru on a number of projects over the last couple years. They are tirelessly professional and an absolute pleasure to be around. Every hiccup is met with a can do attitude and they stand behind their work. I have recommended them to clients looking for contractors and will continue to do so.
I just want to thank you for showing up and doing what you said you were going to do. Very much appreciated. By the way, the place looks phenomenal!
My wife and I decided it was time to update our kitchen and flooring, as it was just not doing it for us anymore. Enter Home Guru Inc. Aaron and Justin took care of us from start to finish. On budget, on schedule and without any headaches. Our kitchen and floor turned out fabulous and the work was very professional. They gave us countless options for styles and accessories, helped us to choose and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I would definitely use Home Guru Inc again and wouldn’t hesitate to refer them to friends.

We really enjoyed working with Aaron and Justin of Home Guru on our kitchen renovation and are thrilled with the results! They helped us to make our space more open, modern and functional. They listened to what we wanted and helped us work out the details of how to get there. As with any renovation, especially one where you are opening up and taking down walls, there were some surprises and setbacks, but Aaron and Justin worked diligently to help us attain our goals and try to stay within our budget. The thing we appreciated most about Home Guru was that we felt they were trustworthy and were always trying to do things in our best interest. We were never worried that they were trying to rip us off, cut corners, or give us the run around. They were reachable and easy to communicate with. One of their areas of expertise is in “smart” home automation, which we decided to incorporate into our reno. We adore the programmed lighting that adds to the mood of our space. Our favourite elements would be the in-ceiling speakers that we’ve added to the kitchen, living room, bedroom and backyard. We can now play or stream music all over house depending on our location and mood. Music is a big part of our lives and has become a part of our children’s lives as well. Our new open-concept kitchen has improved the flow of our house and the overall feeling of the space. The kitchen looks beautiful and the cabinets and countertops are of high quality. We would highly recommend Home Guru to all our family and friends!!
Ethan and Sara, Uxbridge
We were struggling to find a useful design for our complicated layout and the off-the-shelf offerings of the big box stores weren’t meeting our needs. We were referred to Aaron and Justin, who came up with a custom kitchen that gave us better quality materials and way more functionality than we would have purchased at retail. Our kitchen looks incredible and we couldn’t be happier. Easy to deal with and very professional!
R. Jackson, Toronto
I used Home Guru to build my backyard fence. They completed the large job in 4 short days, and it turned out beautifully! The design was exactly as planned, they showed meticulous attention to detail, and my yard was left in great shape! I highly recommend them!
Fence and outdoor lighting
Justin and his crew were great to deal with. We really appreaciate the communication and the speed with which they finished the job. We’re so pleased with the final product. The fence and lighting have made a huge impact on our landscaping job. I’ve already recommended Home Guru to our friends.
Kitchen renovation including flooring, powder room renovation
Our kitchen is completely renovated with new floors, in floor heating, new cabinets backsplash, appliances etc. Aaron and Justin were very honest and upfront with us every step of the way. We felt comfortable with them from the beginning and they kept their word on everything that they would do. The kitchen was done 10 days early, and on budget. Aaron has a background in business and music along with being very competent in the trades, I found him to be very conscientious and straightforward. Justin does a lot of the technical stuff, he installed a nest thermostat and programmed the in floor heating etc. for us. We also had them re-tile the front door for you a floor and do a complete powder room renovation. Very different type of contractors from my past experiences, I highly recommend them for your home improvements.
I hired Aaron & Justin to install custom built-in cabinetry in my living room. The job involved removal of an old chunky mantel, replacing it with marble, cleaning the fireplace and installing a blower to make it more functional, installing new speaker system, as well as floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall custom cabinets. They were very fair and reasonably priced, honest and hard working. Aaron was my main contact and he was a pleasure to work with, always courteous, responsive and addressing any concerns/questions I had through the process. Justin is a whiz with anything “techie” related, I knew I could trust him with the installation of the new speakers, and remounting of the tv, etc.
The cabinets turned out exactly as I had hoped, and I’m so happy with the finished product! I would absolutely recommend Home Gurus to anyone looking for cabinetry in their home.
The Gurus redid our kitchen, bathroom, open space main floor (took down 3 walls), whole new HVAC system (and ducts), permits, new walk out to deck, new deck, waterproofing foundation, removed mold, refinish floors, new floors, insulation, and the list goes on. Not only did they do an amazing job, ON TIME (permits took 8 days only!!!!) and on budget but the process was smooth compared to all the stories we had heard from other renos. The Gurus were responsive (even on a Sunday evening), HONEST, and realistic. I recommend them 100%
