Dear Ken, people are amazed at the change in the house. You sure did a fantastic job! Completed to perfection. My fussy friend from Bancroft was admiring your handy work and complimented how beautifully finished it was. Thank you so much.

What a find! Ken, the”Jack of All Trades,” responded promptly to my call and came over and fixed the problem the same day. Who could ask for more? Efficient, friendly, competent, and fairly priced, we will be using Ken for all of our Mr. Fix-It needs, and more.

Ken from JACK of all Trades did an amazing job renovating the street side of our multi-unit AirBnB. We left the design up to Ken and we are totally impressed with the outcome. Our AirBnB looks fabulous now and we’re excited for him to do the rest of the building and then painting in the spring.

Couldn’t be happier with the job Ken and crew did repairing the exterior of my family’s 60 year-old cottage. He scraped and sanded off multiple layers of old paint, replaced rotting siding and trim, re-caulked everything, primed the new work and then did a superb job re-painting everything. There were daily email updates with fotos as well. Communication was great. Would definitely recommend Jack-ofalltrades.ca and PECpainting.com.

I recently had Jack of All Trades repair and paint the exterior of my house. Upon initial contact Ken the owner was quick to call me back and provide an estimate for the job. He expertly completed the repair work and house prep before he was joined by his team to quickly complete the job.
The team was polite, worked extremely hard and did an excellent job painting my home. I would not hesitate to recommend PEC painting and Jack of All Trades for your home repairs and painting.

DON”T HIRE ANYONE ELSE!!!
“We are writing this letter to fully and wholeheartedly support and endorse the incredible services of Ken and Mike, owners of Jack of all trades. We had a massive project (full and complete renovation of a partially demolished, nearly 100 year old cottage on the lake). The renovations were indeed very challenging in scope and details. If you look at the before pictures, you can see the magnitude of expertise necessary. We had interviewed a tremendous number of trades to start us off. Therefore, from this Reno project and others that we had done previously, we very familiar with what makes exceptional tradespeople. We started with Jack of all Trades for one piece of work: Kitchen makeover. However, it became quickly and overwhelmingly clear that they were exceptional. We had a laundry list of other Reno projects that needed to be done. Prior to Jack of all trades, we were planning on a continued search for further tradespeople to complete our Reno. However, after this one major kitchen project we were 100% convinced that Ken and Mike were the only ones we believed could and should do the remaining projects for us.
They are not only extraordinarily skilled at the work they do, they also take immense pride in their work. This is absolutely apparent when they focus on the main job but also are dedicated to the small details and doing the little extras versus skipping over them, that is oh so common in the world of Reno trades. That is, where the tradesperson has missed something (we have had previous example of this over and over). Jack of all trades never missed in fact in terms of their attention to quality and fine details, they hit a home run.
Going the extra mile, should be their middle name. They worked tirelessly. Our experience with many trades (and there have been many), is that they can take long breaks, don’t show up or change the dates of work, this is so that they can go to another job. Ken and Mike were clear from their arrival that this is not how they like to work. They wanted to get the job done in a timely fashion, and done right.
Ken is so skilled! He will also make suggestions based on his expertise, when appropriate, to make the Reno even more perfect, creative and special.
Communication with Ken and Mike is fluid and open, we were always able to reach them, and in fact they were contacting us with updates, progress reviews, planning and the like, before we ever asked.
Also, it is not uncommon in the trades to have to deal with high and difficult temperaments. This can only add the already stressful state of home Renos. The opposite is true with having Ken and Mike in your home as renovators. Specifically, they can actually offer a peacefulness to the chaos that comes with major home renovations. They presented continually as calm, pleasant and dignified, also with a solid demonstration of firm expertise and professionalism.
So in sum, you get the full package when hiring Ken of Jack of all trades. This is extremely hard to come by. They not only deserve great reviews they deserve rave reviews. And, we hope that we were able to let you know they are the absolute best, period end!”

“Jack of all Trades designed and decorated my condo and completely renovated my kitchen. I set a budget and gave them freedom to create and sat back and watched it all come together. The result: I was absolutely blown away with what they had done. My condo is so gorgeous now that other residences have asked to see it. The value definitely has gone way up. I’m so impressed by their workmanship, work ethic and creativity, and stay on budget.” Colleen C. Toronto
“Jack of all Trades was hired to enhance my newly build condo by adding things little things that made a big impact. They created a design plan, then repainted, added new counters and vanities and handles throughout, added a backsplash, a large family-size island, replaced all light fixtures and switches, and closet organizers. They did a magnificent job, and did it within budget and time. They are the best and I will use them for all my future design, renovation and upgrade needs for my investments.” Erinn W. Hamilton ON
“I bought a condo to flip and hired Jack of all Trades to create the design and do all the work, which included tearing-out the floors, bathrooms, scrape the ceilings and add a kitchen pantry. They did an amazing job. They are fast, clean and reliable, and very creative.” Kelly C. Burlington
“This home was a complete mess when I bought it, everything had to go. Even the beams holding up the floors had to be replaced. Ken provided beautiful renderings and began to work on creating the designs. They fixed the foundation, gutted the entire house and rebuilt it to create a masterpiece. Afterwards, our home was featured in a local magazine even. Jack of all Trades did a superlative job!” Randal B. Hamilton
“Ken & Mike did an amazing job with renovating an old home I bought as an investment property. The house almost doubled in value with the great design ideas and excellent workmanship. Thank you Jack! Harj K. Hamilton
