The Renovation Co-op is a professional membership of Renovation Contractors, Single-Trade Services, Architectural Specialists and related professional services.

The Co-op provides homeowners with free access to numerous services, including General Contracting, Architecture and Permit Compliance.

We are supported through segments of the Construction and Financial Service Industries across Canada.

All member-services are licensed and insured for their specific trade categories, and are carefully screened and vetted for membership approval.

Quick Overview:

Architectural Design & Permit Services

All drawings are sold separately-not as part of a renovation contract. You own the drawings and are free to obtain an estimate from any contractor (including an estimate through The Co-op’s own contractor-membership).

Rebate: If you purchase your drawings through The Renovation Co-op and you wind up buying the actual renovations through a member-contractor, you will receive an Architectural Rebate up to $1,500 that is deducted from the contract price.

Permit Compliance Orders

The Renovation Co-op includes specialists that deal exclusively with the resolution of Permit Compliance Issues.

If you’ve been issued a Compliance Order, our Permit Compliance Specialists act quickly on your behalf to resolve the situation with the municipality.

Quick Overview:

General Contracting Services

The Renovation Co-op offers the services of dozens of individual renovation contractors within the Toronto GTA and surrounding areas.

Each of these contractor-members specializes in a specific category and level of the following types of renovation contracting services:

* Basement Renovations
* Bathroom Renovations
* Additions
* Kitchen Renovations
* Extensions
* Attic Conversions
* Porch Re-builds
* Basement Underpinning
* Garages

Estimating Procedures

All renovation estimates are processed through The Renovation Co-op’s unique Member-Bidding System. Only the best-matched contractors are selected to receive an “Invitation to Bid” for each project.

As a result, the specific targeting of the same level of contractors for each project helps stabilize all bid prices.

(For more information see Estimating Procedures).

Single-Trade Services

DirectLogotradesman

Direct Access enables homeowners to deal directly with standalone, single-trade service providers. Notably, this differs from the Co-op’s General Contracting Service, which involves the “hands-on” management of 2 or more unrelated trade services.

For example, you would hire a general contractor for your kitchen or basement renovation, which use several trades (plumber, electrician, etc.)

This service enables homeowners to deal directly with over 27 types of Single-Trade Service Providers (eg. Plumbing, Roofing, Electrical, etc). Furthermore, each participating service company or individual is licensed & insured, and has been extensively vetted by our organization.
