The Most Common Reno Jobs

Ever wonder what the most common reno jobs are these days? It may surprise you to learn what the top requests are from homeowners.  To find out what renovation projects we do most for our customers, check out our top seven common renos list.

Bathroom Reno

Probably the most commonly requested reno job is a bathroom upgrade. And it’s not really surprising as many older homes are still sporting 80s styled pastels and tacky patterned tiling. With all the upgraded materials and spa-like fixtures available today, you can finally say goodbye to your green coloured tub and hello to a design that showcases your personal style at a price you can afford.

Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen is the heart of the home, so its no wonder why it’s on the list of the most common reno jobs. Adding an island, beautiful countertops, stainless steel appliances, and more cabinet space can go a long way when it comes to style and functionality. But today’s trends focus more on space organization and innovative decorative elements than ever before. Think sleek black stainless steel that hides fingerprints, scratchproof Dekton in place of granite, and stylish adhesive backsplashes that can be changed out in a flash.

Window And Doors

Many homeowners are now focused on finding ways to add more energy efficiency to their homes in order to cut down on their energy costs. Taking on a reno project to incorporate brand new windows and doors is one of the best ways to improve efficiency as well as adding more aesthetics to your home.


Expanding the home and adding another floor or section, is another one of the most common reno jobs today. For families who are expanding, a new addition can save them the pain of finding a new home and moving. It’s also a great way to get a better price on your home when you’re ready to sell.

Finished Basements

A finished basement is another excellent way to add more space to your home. And the best part is that there are endless opportunities for how you can utilize the extra room. Common conversions include creating an income-producing rental unit, a space for a playroom, entertainment area, office, workshop, or even an extra bedroom for an aging parent or the returning college student.


That old plush carpet you have not only starts to look drab over time but can also contain a lot of dirt and mold deep within the fibres. It’s wise to get your carpet flooring replaced every five years or so. Beautiful looking flooring is also a great selling feature. Changing old tile or carpet to hardwood has also become a very popular request. Wood flooring comes in a variety of finishes and laminates, and also provides improved durability and improved aesthetics in any room.

Exterior Siding

Whether it’s time to replace old or damaged aluminum siding or to switch up the materials to a more modern style of stucco or cedar, exterior siding remains a prevalent reno project among homeowners.
