Client Testimonials

  • We are both loving our new kitchen. Everything came together just as we’d hoped. Thanks to everyone involved, with a special mention to Nic who not only did a super job but whose constant communication was really appreciated while we were away.

  • We had the pleasure of using Rammik for a big renovation of the entire main and second floor.  Having never gone through a renovation, we were nervous of what this process would entail. We have heard many stories from friends with opposite renovation experiences and many have been shocked at our experience being all positive. Mark, Grace, and Nic guided us through every step beginning with the design phase right up to the finishing touches.  Mark became a staple at our kitchen table throughout the preliminary phases as we went back and forth on ideas while drinking peppermint tea. His quiet, kind, knowledgeable and professional demeanour assured us that we were in excellent hands. During the construction phase our contacts shifted to Grace and Nic, our Site Supervisor.  The transition was seamless as both Grace and Nic oversaw every detail of the build process.  Grace in the background doing all the behind the scenes work with scheduling and going above and beyond answering our many questions, while Nic was at our house supervising it all!  Both were are an absolute pleasure to work with!  For the last 2.5 months of the reno, we lived in our basement while work went on above our heads.  I can honestly say that it was Nic's kind, professional, and approachable presence that made this experience not only possible, but enjoyable. Our experience with Rammik was amazing and we would recommend them to anyone!   They have amazing communication with the client, bring in excellent contractors and finished our project on time and on budget!  A complete success!

  • Our little post-war bungalow needed an addition to create a dining and living room space to suit our needs. Mark and Grace at Rammik were the right ones to call. Mark, Grace, and designer Corrine took our ideas and created what has become a fantastic renovation. They sizeably enlarged the living and kitchen space, integrated a laundry room, expanded the basement storage, and inserted a proper staircase to replace a trap door used to access the former utility basement. Whenever possible materials were reused, and instead of a complete set of kitchen cupboards, Xanadu built cabinetry to match our existing cabinets. Nic did a fantastic job of renovating and managing the onsite activities. Communication throughout the planning and execution with Rammik and their subtrades was excellent. All the trades involved were professional and this is evident by their final product. Thank you all.

  • We had heard great things about Rammik, and knew when it was time to do our main floor renovation they were the ones to call! Mark, the owner, was extremely thorough and worked meticulously to create the perfect floor plan for our family. Any questions or concerns that arose during our renovation were quickly communicated with us by Nic, our site supervisor.  We are thrilled with how our renovation turned out. Our home has been completely transformed to suit our family’s needs and lifestyle. Thank you Mark, Nic and Grace!

  • Working with Rammik has been by far the best renovation experience we have had over the years.  From concept to completion, the attention to detail and craftsmanship was remarkable.  Mark, the owner estimator, was thorough and honest about what to expect during the process.  The site supervisor, Angus, had great communication throughout our main floor renovation, never dismissing a question or an idea.  We are pleased with all the sub trades involved.  We would definitely use Rammik again for any future projects.  A truly satisfied customer!

  • Renovating my kitchen was a smooth and easy process when I worked with Rammik. They were able to support me through the design and construction phases, answering any questions I had, no matter how small. They considered all aspects of my home and project hopes to help me achieve a kitchen that went above my expectations. Even though my kitchen has a small footprint, it has all the functionality and storage that I was hoping for and it looks wonderful. I look forward to working with them again on my next project.

  • We have been so pleased to work with Mark, Grace, Nic, architect Corinne Maloney, and the whole Rammik team. Rammik came highly recommended in our community and they did not disappoint. We had always pictured a small addition on our home but Rammik made it come to life. The planning process was clear and organized, everyone who came to the house was attentive and easy to work with, and they were able to do the work safely and efficiently through this difficult pandemic. We even came in under budget! Our cozy addition is now done and decorated for Christmas and it feels really special. We will add our voices to those in our community who highly recommend Rammik Construction.

  • We hired Rammik Construction to renovate our basement in November, 2014 and we were very happy with the workmanship, neatness on the job site and follow up. Mark has a wealth of knowledge in renovations, innovative ideas and a lot of good common sense. Mark brings in obvious appreciation for quality work, and his enthusiasm and attitude were much appreciated. He also assembled a very talented team of specialists in all the required trades. He really created a true partnership, whereby we could achieve the best results. The end product was everything and more than we were hoping for. We had a very aggressive timeline for the renovation and Mark planned everything out to the finest level of detail. We worked with his team and subtrades to complete everything on time for our Christmas party. We would recommend Rammik Construction without reservation and would not hesitate to use his services again in the future.

  • As a former Professor at George Brown College in the Construction Management program, I can only hope that my past students run a company as well as Mark Hofstee and his friendly, efficient crew. Mark came up with the plans for our renovation, secured the permits, gave us a shopping list (with preferred suppliers), payment schedule and gave us a start date. His subtrades were all extremely professional and efficient, again a sign of Mark finding quality people. There were very few problems on the project and all were addressed in a timely manner. I would not hesitate in recommending Rammik Construction to anyone looking for a renovation. Quality people, quality work!

  • We are pleased beyond words with the transformation of our home. We look around and still can’t believe this is our house. Mark helped us think through our reno until we came up with the perfect plan and with no pressure. He was very patient as we kept changing our minds. We would not think twice to ask Rammik back and thank Mark, Angus and Nic for our beautiful home.

    Tom and Judy | Guelph, ON | 2019
  • Mark Hofstee and his team at Rammik Renovations and Restorations have completed three renovations in my 1950’s brick bungalow in the Old University neighbourhood of Guelph. I am very happy with their work and would recommend them highly to anyone who is looking for a totally professional and reliable company to carry out renovations to their home. Mark and his employees are a pleasure to deal with. They were helpful in all aspects of the project, including excellent design suggestions, setting out a clear contract and budget, managing the various trades efficiently, and taking care of the large and small details of construction meticulously. I also appreciated how considerate they were of me as the homeowner. This is a totally trustworthy and excellent company, and I am sure anyone who retains their services will be totally satisfied.

  • Thanks for doing a most wonderful job of renovating our home; right down to the last squeak of the bedroom door and sliders for the closet doors. You came highly recommended and we now will also recommend Rammik! Mark, thanks for your patience; Nic, you do a great job, drywall and more (glad you liked my cakes!); Angus for your phone calls to confirm workers, etc. Guys---a job well done!!

    John, Greta and Derek | Guelph, ON
  • "After our marriage survived two previous renovation projects, we were confident we could manage the makeover of the new/old Guelph home we purchased in 2017. Well, thanks to Rammik Renovations, not only did our marriage survive stronger than ever, we’re simply delighted with the end result of our major renovation project. While we didn’t quite take the place down to its bones, we did do a total renovation, inside and out, and Rammik organized and managed every element with calm and confident leadership. It was a pleasure working with Mark Hofstee and his team, including every one of the sub-trades and suppliers. Special thanks go to the stalwart and steady Angus and Nic. Would we ever take on a home makeover of this scale again?Probably not, but if we did we would certainly go to Rammik for the job."

    Murray and Joan | Guelph, ON
  • “We came to Mark looking for suggestions on how to utilize our basement space. He was very creative and came up with a few design solutions. We are thrilled with the results and were very impressed with not only the design and planning that Mark offered, but also the excellent execution of the renovations process - on time and on budget.”

    Amy and Marshall | Guelph, ON
  • “We are happy to report that the result has satisfied our every wish. To date, everyone who has visited our home has applauded the ‘fine workmanship’ apparent on viewing our beautiful, newly expanded dining room. It is, therefore, with wholehearted gratitude that we extend to you and to your entire team, a huge and sincere thank you.”

    Ken and Pauline | Guelph, ON
  • “You took our original concept and made it absolutely beautiful. You brought finesse to everything you worked on. The result is a distinctive home for us that is unique, gorgeous, and totally ours. You were always men of your word. You did what you said you would, in a timely manner. Greg and I never had to worry about whether things you had promised would be done.”

    Greg and Briar | Guelph, ON
  • “It has been six months since our home was completed and a year and a half since we began our relationship with Rammik. We still marvel at this timeline; it seems impossible that the changes our home and life have undergone could possibly be squeezed into such a small window, but every day we wake up in this beautiful home and smile at the good fortune to have found such an excellent contractor to work with. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and recommend your services to anyone else thinking about working with you.”

    Ed and Robin | Guelph, ON
  • “This has been one of the more enjoyable experiences of my life and something we should have done years earlier. Bill and I are very appreciative of your flexibility and good humour in doing our kitchen addition and with just the deck to be built and the outside completion remaining, availability to answer any questions (sometimes going above and beyond the call of duty and exceeding our expectations) and your willingness to make sure all goes well, is a testament to why you are highly recommended contractors and why it is no surprise to have seen your sign on numerous lawns throughout our neighbourhood.”
