HEALTHY HOMES & OFFICES
We encourage our clients to consider adding affordable healthy building features to any project. This includes building materials, paints and natural furnishings that do not give off volatile chemicals, thereby providing for a healthier indoor environment.
BEST WARRANTY IN LONDON
We’re so confident in the quality of our work, we offer a 3-year comprehensive warranty on all residential and commercial renovation projects. Our warranty exceeds the 2-year industry standard required by professional designations like RenoMark.
INTEGRATED DESIGN + BUILD
Our integrated architectural design services allow you to first build your ideas on the page and then in your home. By unifying the design and build process for you, the design+build experience is seamless.
We listen carefully to your ideas and goals. We will work together with you to develop a vision for your project and ensure that the design is tailored to your style and budget.
IN-HOUSE DESIGN SERVICES
In-house design is the key to our unique offering. Our design team is a mixture of design professionals and carpenters with 20+ years of experience. With this combination we know what’s possible and can creatively push the envelope while always staying within your budget.
EXPERT SPACE PLANNING
A great renovation needs to start from a great plan and we’re experts at making the most of your home or office’s floor plan. Our clients are always surprised by our unique ideas that imaginatively maximize every square foot. We can move walls, alter the structure and help you see a different way to make the most of your space.
DETAILED TRANSPARENT CONTRACTS
Our contracts are long – in a good way! We clearly spell out everything covered by your project’s scope including a detailed written description of work, all specifications, materials and our professional responsibilities to you.
WE MANAGE PERMITS FOR YOU
37 years of building and renovating in London has provided us with the experience to navigate the complicated permit process for you. We manage the securing of all permits on your behalf and can assist you with other hurdles like Committee of Adjustment, Zoning and OMB hearings if required.
RESPECT FOR YOUR HOME
We know that having anyone work in your home requires trust. Our team is very respectful of your space and makes sure that all work is always carried out in a safe and clean manner. We pride ourselves on treating your home like it is our own.
YOUR HOUSE, ONE DEDICATED CREW
Your project will be built by one specific onsite crew comprised of one Lead Carpenter and 1-2 apprentices depending on the size of your project. This team is dedicated to your project and ensures that no detail or information is lost along the way. Say goodbye to broken telephone.
THE DUO CLOUD
We use a collaborative cloud based tool to manage all of your projects details. You are able to see project photos, make material selections and see any updates to the calendar all in one place. Via your mobile phone, computer or tablet, we can keep you informed and up to date at all times.
When we provide you with a project calendar, we stick to it. Your dedicated onsite crew will be led by a Senior Project Manager to assure your project finishes on time and on budget. When unforeseen scope changes arise, we do our best to minimize their impact to project timelines.
DAILY SITE CLEANUP
At DUO, we firmly believe that your house is not a construction worksite, it is your home and should be respected as such. Our crew performs daily site clean-ups that make for a more comfortable and safer place for you and your family during the renovation process.
NO PERMANENT BINS
Using our in-house hydraulic dump trailers, we are able to keep those unattractive rental bins off your property. Our trailers are only on site when they are needed. As part of our green initiatives, we have 4 types of trailers to separate and divert as much of your project waste from landfill as possible.
WE’RE OBSESSED WITH EVERY DETAIL
The DUO team including our partner skilled sub-trades know that the devil is in the detail! We strive to offer the highest quality renovations and commercial builds in London. For all of our team members, our work is not complete until you are completely satisfied.
POST-COMPLETION SERVICE VISITS
We pre-schedule 2 post-completion service visits on the last day of the project to ensure no detail was overlooked. We can make little adjustments if needed to ensure your finishes and fixtures are performing at their best.
