We were absolutely thrilled with the finished product and the smooth renovation process by i love renovations.  The service was very professional and all deadlines for our project were met.  Would highly recommend i love renovations and look forward to working with them again in the future!

We started our journey with i love renovations in the fall of 2015. Chosen at random (the name caught my eye), we have had them back for 3 different projects over the last 11 months. Each time we have been impressed with the quality of work, attention to detail, timeliness of the projects and the friendliness of owners and employees. We would have no hesitation to employ them again ( if we had anything else to do!) and recommend them highly.

I want to say how impressed I was with the quality of the work that was done and also with your team.  Considering that the work had to be delayed because of the “surprises” that showed up, it was amazing to me that all the interior was completed by the deadline date!!

I want to tell you that it has been an absolute PLEASURE working with you and your men. “If you Dream it. We can Build it.” Great Quote. You guys have made my nightmares go away! I’m grateful for all of your help.

Tina & Bruce

We love the kitchen renovation! Great job! So glad we hired you and your company. Very nice guys that came into our home and did everything possible to please us. I would recommend i love renovations to anyone. Thank you so much for our dream kitchen:):)

Eric & MJ

This summer we had huge plans of creating a big outdoor patio, but had no idea how to tackle it and were concerned about the cost. We gave the guys at i love renovations a call and were absolutely over the moon with the job they did for us! Our expectations were completely surpassed, with the quality, professionalism AND price. Best part is we still had money left over to finance patio furniture and beers! Amazing value for an amazing job. Thank you guys.

I’ve Bcc’d you all to send out my most sincerest thanks for all the hard work you and your team did to help me get the house ready for my daughter’s graduation party!  Many of you put in extra hours, braved rain, and went beyond the call of duty to help out and see the job through.

The house, the property, the food, the music…it was all outstanding.  The quality of workmanship and/or care that was put into each of your respective jobs made for an amazing night.  I was literally running to get the food and drinks set up before the kids and their parents showed, but after that I actually got to sit back and chat with friends and enjoy the band.  It went off without a hitch…ok one hitch..neighbours called in a noise complaint, but it made for a story the kids will enjoy telling all their friends and families!


This is a letter to commend you and Portage Mutual for dealing with our claim of leakage. We are very impressed  with the exemplary attention to our claim. We thank you. Dealing with Mike and Chris of “i love renovations” was a pleasure. They have carefully chosen their staff. We have met Cory, Bruce, Donnie, Sean, Arthur, Megan and the roofers. Each in turn showed courtesy, professionalism and attention to detail.

All in all this has been a very positive experience for us and we are very happy. Again, our thanks.

Hugh and Cecilia Morgan

i love renovations has done work for us at our rental property twice in 6 months.  The conditions could not have been worse in the mid-winter.  We are completely happy with the work they have done both times. Relations with the tenant were first class and the quality of workmanship done by i love renovations is excellent. 

Dave Dawson

I am very happy with Mark’s work. He did get a lot done! The kids and I also felt very comfortable with him in our home. I would highly recommend i love renovations to everyone…particularly Mark’s work. You were bang on with how efficient he is.


Thanks to you and your team for handling the renovations on my property.  I am quite happy with the results.  I finally had a couple days off work on the weekend and I was able to enjoy the deck.  The roof is holding up nicely under the crazy amounts of rain we’ve had lately.

Mike Morris

The team at i love renovations were exceptional. They provided fast, friendly service and craftsmanship that today is hard to find.  They made the renovation process enjoyable!


We are in love with your work!  The posts look super high end and the quality of your carpentry is outstanding!  The top looks levelled now, so thanks.

In the early spring of 2015, ILR carried out a complete rebuild of our 40-year-old bathroom, including lowering the ceiling.  ILR gave us excellent advice with all aspects of the design, both beforehand and during the job.  Most impressively the job was completed on time in the middle of the worst weather to have hit this region in years. Subcontractors came and went as expected. We were most satisfied and plan to engage further upgrades to our house.

Pat and Jim Reddy


We would like to thank the i love renovations team for their hard work, courteousness and professionalism. Having recently undergone two renovation projects in our home, Chris, Mike and the entire team strived to put our house back together better than it was before and in a timely fashion.  Even when additional problems arose (as is often the case with home renovations), they provided creative solutions and went the extra mile without hesitation. I would gladly refer their work to others looking for renovations.

Jody Jenkins

Thank you too for the work you’ve done for us. We are very pleased with the final product.  We love our new space and are even thinking about what household improvement to attack next. In fact, you will hear from us soon in that regard.

Christian B.

Thanks Chris. It was a pleasure working with your team and we love the new bathroom.

Erin L.

I want to thank both of you and your team, not only for the quality of the work you’ve done at my house, but more importantly for the quality of service. Due to my unexpected posting, I had to put my house on the market quickly and later, just before I moved on, another problem was discovered, which I had to get fixed in very short delay.

In both instances you answered very quickly to conduct an assessment and provide a quote. You were very flexible and able to adapt to get the job done within the best possible timeline without comprising the quality of work. I also appreciate that you’ve always respected your quotes, not trying to use excuses to add extra charges as so many others do.

I will recommend your services to any of our friends in Halifax and you can be certain that if I move back to Halifax in my career, I will call upon you for any renovation project. In the meantime, I wish you both the best.

Happy with the results . I like the way the men worked – confident , no loud music ,
and ready to answer any questions .    

Mike Tilley renovated a bathroom for me.  The project involved replacing a tub and sink, plumbing, tiling, carpentry and the installation of a new floor, medicine cabinet and light fixture. The bathroom looks great. Mike completed the job on time and on budget. He presented alternatives when an unforeseen complication arose (which happens in old homes), and he cleaned up at the end of each day. I am a thoroughly satisfied customer. 

Rick J. Alexander

Chris and Mike are competent and reliable. They handled a bathroom renovation, decking and an attic isolation upgrade. They went the extra mile – protecting our floors and thoroughly cleaning up after. A pleasure to have i love renovations working in our home.


i love renovations showed up when they said they would; paid attention to the small details; and bring experience and professionalism to every job performed at our home. We will be calling them soon again.


After repairing some water damage to my all-wood house, I discovered another really bad problem in another area. Realizing that it was beyond my handyman capabilities, I went online and immediately found i love renovations and called the contact number. Chris answered my call, booked an appointment to look at my problem and came on time. Not knowing how extensive the damage was without starting the repair, a firm estimate wasn’t possible, but I told Chris to ‎get started anyway. Three days later the job was done, the site was spotless. Chris and his assistant had been pleasant, capable and professional. Best of all…the price was less than I expected. I’d definitely use them again.
Rick Crawford

We are so pleased with the work completed by i love renovations. Their efficiency and professionalism certainly put us at ease, especially since we were out of province while the work was being done. In fact, we’re sure that it’s due to their hard work that our home sold in less than a week!

Katie Rock

I discovered i love renovations on LinkedIn one day and sent an e-mail off to Chris to inquire about a small project and he responded in a very timely and professional manner. I am pleased to say that our experience with i love renovations was great.  Right from that first e-mail through to the day they walked out our door when the renovation was complete, it was everything they promised upfront and more. The lines of communication were always open, no surprises, on time, great ideas, input, and quality work from professional, trustworthy guys. They make you kinda love renovations. Lol.
Laurie Ann Coring

We cannot thank you enough for our amazing deck! We love, love, love it. Besides for having a new outdoor living space, the professionalism of Mike, Eric, and Chris is wonderful. Days started early, ended late, and they left our yard neat and tidy daily. Highly recommend your company to anyone looking for renovation work. Thanks again! 

Heather Cummings

Many thanks for the terrific paint job – please pass on a special thanks to Matt and Corey. They are great guys to work with. You have an excellent team. What more can i say – the cheque is in the post.

William Vanduyn

Mike Tilley is a great carpenter. His workmanship is impeccable. He has done many renos for us and all have turned out really well. We are totally satisfied and would give him a 10 out of 10. We would recommend him highly. No complaints whatsoever.
