Ascot Home Improvement testimonials – read what our happy customers have said about our work and our company.


The construction of our front veranda went smoothly and professionally. I think you’ll agree that the veranda is gorgeous and that it really complements the house. We love it and so do our neighbours and strangers who wander by. We have been recommending and will continue to recommend your company. We’re hoping to do some more work on our home in the near future and when the time comes, we will certainly give you a call. Until then.

Just wanted to say how pleased we are with the way your crew replaced the railings on our new steps. They were extremely polite and  courteous and very professional. I’ll have no qualms in recommending ASCOT to people looking for someone to do their renovations. Once again all my thanks for a fine job very well done.


I am writing in praise of your employees who recently did a super job with the “Wall” in our back yard. We highly commend all your employees who have worked for us on numerous occasions since 1987 for being respectful, courteous, conscientious and very hard working, always producing excellent results. We are truly very satisfied.

I saw Father Tom Day the other day and told him how you had helped us out at the school. He remembered you and asked me to send you his best regards and thanks. The school kids put on a talent show next spring in May (it’s called “Showcase”) and you will be invited.

I just want to say that the professionalism and efficiency of your crew, led by Walter, went a long way in easing the trauma of home construction mess. And my friends are already telling me that the place looks like a new house, so the work had its intended effect.
Thanks very much for taking this on. I’m sure we’ll be doing business again.


The Foremen and workers were punctual and courteous in their work. All work was tidied up at the end of the day. The projects were on time and on budget with estimates given in a timely fashion. The foreman was willing to do a couple of small improvements as a courtesy. Pictures were frequently taken to show and explain what was being done on the roof. All in all one could not expect a better outcome on the project.


I hire Ascot Home Improvements again to come to Midland to redo my boathouse. I had them up to do a roofing job and I was very impressed with their workmanship I wanted them to come back and completely re-do all the siding on my boathouse. The quality of workmanship is excellent. Larry Vallentyne and his crews go the extra mile to make sure that everything is done right I asked for a few extra things to be done and they were more then happy to accommodate my requests. I have had many compliments on the work that was done and I would recommend Ascot Home Improvements to all of my friends. Thank you very much Larry and The Boys. Best Regards.


John and his crew created a hatch so we could get into/underneath our ancient mudroom. There was a ton of debris to be removed, but the site was pin-neat throughout and after the job. They needed to dig deeper than forecast and to install a window well for the hatch, and brought in a specialist to custom-make a grate/cover for it. When it became apparent that we had to fix a plumbing problem, John brought in an excellent plumber. He also recommended an insulation company to insulate under the mud room, and we were pleased with them, too.
They came when they said they would come, did what they said they would do, dealt with the curve-balls effectively. Very professional, we will hire Ascot again.


Working with a very particular and quality minded designer ( Aykroyd Design) required an equally particular contractor with quality service and attention to detail. Ascot gets full marks in all categories. Our designer was delighted and they were a delight to work with – always punctual , pleasant and ready with input and ideas that enhanced the finished result. We would not hesitate to recommend them to others and use them again ourselves.


As relatively new homeowners, we were very fortunate to find John and his team at Ascot. They have completed every project for us over the past 8 years. We have always been impressed with the work ethic, the work quality, the politeness of everyone we’ve encountered. We wouldn’t think of calling anyone else!
