If it’s time for home renovations in Ottawa, you need an expert contractor that puts your needs first.
Don’t waste your time with a company advertising every service under the sun. Instead, you deserve specialized expertise to avoid costly errors down the line.
That’s why you need to get in touch with us at RenosGroup. We offer the absolute best home renovations Ottawa has available.
Whether you want to add more closet space or completely redo your living room, we can do it all here.
We’re the premium contracting company that Ottawa has trusted for the past 15 years. During that time, we’ve completed thousands of renovation projects. You can always rely on us for remarkable craftsmanship. Trust us; we know all the secrets behind making renovations look spectacular.

Free In-Home Consultations for Every Client
A significant factor that sets us apart in Ottawa is our free in-home consultations. That’s right; we’ll come to visit your home and consult with you at no cost. There are no tricks here, either. If you decide not to renovate, we’ll leave without you having to pay a dime.
That’s because we value your wishes for your renovation projects.
Other contractors in the area are preoccupied with upselling you on expensive products. That’s why they won’t visit your home until you’ve already paid them. Sure, they’ll be happy to let you into their showrooms. That’s where they’ll try to sell you on expensive upgrades with no practical value.
We’re different at RenosGroup.
We want to make sure that we give you a chance to express your wants, desires, and dreams for your renovations.
Here’s what you can expect during one of our free consultations for home renovations in Ottawa:
- Listening to your wants and needs for your renovation project
- Laying eyes on the space you want us to renovate
- Taking detailed measurements and calculations for the project
- Discussing the feasibility of what you want to achieve with your renovations
- Providing you with a detailed and accurate estimate for the cost of your project
- Agreeing on the date and time for your renovations
- Home Renovation guide
As you can see, our consultations are pretty extensive while remaining free. We feel that our in-home consultations show that we genuinely care about you as a client. You’re not just a customer to us that we can try and sell expensive products to; you’re someone that we want to help. We want to work with you to achieve the home of your dreams.
As far as our showrooms go, we keep them online. To us, it’s a better way of allowing our clients to get a feel for the products that we provide.
While you can’t buy anything from our online showroom, you can decide what you want for your project. You can check out our online showrooms here.
An In-House Team of Experts
At RenosGroup, we never have to use subcontractors, which is a plus for you. Subcontractors tend to be unreliable, and they don’t live up to our standards for excellence. If your current contractor is using subcontractors, that should be a red flag. They have no way to enforce quality control over their subcontractors. That’s why we would never outsource our labor because we have such high standards for our quality of work.
Instead, we’ve gone out of our way to hire a diverse team of expert contractors. We’ve got:
- Interior designers
- Construction workers
- General contractors
Since we’re so diverse, we never have to outsource our labor. You’ll always have access to our team of skilled, educated, and trained professionals. We won’t hesitate to go above and beyond to create the home of your dreams.
Make sure to check out our portfolios to see some of our fantastic craftsmanship in action:
- Bathroom Renovations Portfolio

- Basement Renovations Portfolio
- Mobility Renovations Portfolio
- Home Additions Renovations Portfolio
Our galleries will give you a chance to view some of the projects we’ve completed in the past. We have a habit of exceeding client expectations, and it shows in our portfolio.
Why You Need Professionals to Renovate Your Home in Ottawa
A general question we get from our clients is, “Why can’t I renovate my home myself?” Of course, you could tackle renovations by yourself, but there are some crucial reasons why you shouldn’t.
For one, if you’ve never renovated homes before, you don’t know what you’re getting into at all. Even making a few simple renovations can have severe repercussions if you don’t do them right.
If you make errors, you could cause thousands of dollars worth of damages to your home.
Not only that, but you’ll be on the hook for the repairs since you made the errors yourself. Say, for example, that you do some damage to the foundation of your home by trying to renovate your basement.
All of a sudden, you have to pay a fortune to prevent your foundation from failing. That can spell a total disaster for your home. Trust us; it happens more often than you might think.
Our team is constantly having to repair costly mistakes clients made by trying to renovate. The best way to avoid these mistakes is to hire us from the start.
We haven’t even mentioned the risk of injury to yourself yet. If you attempt renovations involving ladders and dangerous equipment, you could hurt yourself.
Once again, you’ll be on the hook for the medical bills.
To avoid suffering a painful and costly fall or spill, leave renovations to professionals like us. We have insurance, which means you won’t have to pay for anything if we make mistakes. Hiring us also means you won’t have to put your neck on the line. Our team has extensive training and experience, and we know how to work without getting injured.
You need to hire trained, licensed, and insured professionals like us to work on your home. Doing so will keep your body and your home completely safe. Not only that, but we’ll do a fantastic job for you. So if you want to renovate your home in Ottawa, you need to hire us at RenosGroup.
Fair and Honest Pricing
Another reason to avoid cheaper contractors is their shady contracts. Sure, they may offer you an unrealistically low quote for your project, but it won’t stay that way. Before you know it, they’ll have jacked up the price by adding lots of fees and expenses they didn’t tell you about upfront.
To us, there’s no worse business practice than lying about prices. You see, it’s our goal to win your long-term business. We want to become your go-to contracting company for all your renovation needs. That’s why we’ll go above and beyond for you through our service and our prices.
We put a lot of effort into coming up with accurate quotes for our clients. We’ll do so during our completely free in-home consultation with you.
Whenever we present you with a contract, there will NEVER be any hidden charges or fees. One of our professionals will go over the entire agreement with you to eliminate confusion. Feel free to ask us all the questions that come to your mind before signing it.
You won’t find excellent service like that anywhere else in Ottawa. Transparency is one of our most significant values. At RenosGroup, we put the golden rule to use. We treat our clients the way that we would like to be treated when working with renovators.

in Ottawa. With our help, you can successfully renovate any room in your home.
So what do you want to be done for your home? Does your bathroom need an upgrade? Would you love to overhaul your kitchen? Could you benefit from turning your basement into another bedroom? Our team can tackle all the above and more for you.
Other specialties include home additions and mobility renovation services. The latter involves renovating your home to enhance your mobility.

Can your mother no longer climb the stairs by herself? Then you can call on us to install a lift or ramp so she can stay at home.
Are you not sure where to renovate or what to renovate in your home? Then let’s take a look at some of the most common reasons our clients choose to undergo home renovations in Ottawa.
Renovations for Practicality
Adding practicality is a great reason to renovate. An example would be adding extra storage to your bathroom to remove clutter.
Instead of only viewing renovations as visual upgrades, consider practicality as well.
Bearing this in mind, take a quick trip around your house and think of things you would like to change. Could you add more space to your bathroom by changing the location of the shower? Would adding an island to your kitchen give you much-needed space to store appliances? These are all questions you can ask yourself to improve the practicality of your home.
After all, if your home isn’t practical, why are you putting yourself through so much trouble?
The ideal home is one that’s set up for your unique needs. Every cooking tool you need should be within arm’s reach by the oven, for example.
You can always rely on us at RenosGroup to renovate your home to your heart’s desire. You can use us to transform your home into a practical paradise that’s tidy.
Renovations for Visual Appeal
That is the most common reason people think of when someone mentions renovating. There’s a good reason for that, as visual upgrades can add a lot to your home. Not only will they look great, but they can boost your mood and even add to your resell value.
If you find that your home feels particularly stale, then renovating is the remedy.
We’ve got an interior designer that works for us who would be happy to consult with you. They’ll go over all your options and desires for your renovations.
Visual upgrades can do a lot to boost your mood. If you’re sick and tired of coming home to the same dated wallpaper from the 60s, it’s time for a change. You’ll quickly find that you’ll be in a happier mood with newer colors, furniture, and themes. Our interior designer can help you transform your dull home into a visual wonderland.
Visual upgrades will add to your resell value too. After all, nobody wants to buy a home that has dated and dull interiors.
Which home would you rather buy, one with chipped floral wallpaper and outdated furniture, or one with fresh new paint and modern dressings? The answer is pretty obvious. If you’re planning to sell your home, renovations are a must.
Renovations for Transformation
Another big reason why our clients choose to renovate is to transform the purpose of a room.
An example would be transforming a basement from a storage space into an extra bedroom.
- A man cave
- A movie theater
- A bedroom
- An extension of your living room
- A wine cellar
- Much more
It’s crucial to think of your renovations as more than visual upgrades. You can get as creative as you want by renovating your home in Ottawa. With the extraordinary capabilities of our team, anything is possible for your renovations. If anything you’ve seen has intrigued you so far, please don’t wait to get in touch with us for a free in-home consultation today.
Ideas for Home Renovations in Ottawa
If you’re still unsure about how to go about your renovations, here are some popular ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Adding closet space. Almost everyone wants an enormous closet, and our renovations can make it happen for you. There are lots of ways that you can go about adding closet space, too. We could remove one of the walls to give it more square footage. Or we could think vertically and start stacking shelves to add extra space. That can work if you have exceptionally high ceilings. Another option is to knock out the dividing wall to turn two closets into one.
- Kitchen islands. We’re constantly installing kitchen islands for our clients in Ottawa. There’s virtually no downside to adding an island to your kitchen. You gain extra cooking and storage space, and they look appealing. Another fun idea is to add an extended island to include a sit-down eating area. We can also add sinks to kitchen islands for added capabilities.
- If your home is stuck in the stone age, then you need retrofitting. What’s that? It’s where we upgrade all the ancient appliances and furnishings in your home. Retrofitting will not only make your home more appealing, but it will save you money. Is your fridge from the 60s? Do you have an especially old thermostat? Then you’re not doing yourself any favors. Older appliances like those are notorious for wasting energy. More modern appliances will help you save money each month on your utility bills.
- Open shelving. A hot trend going around right now is open shelving for kitchens. If you’re someone that cooks a lot, then the chances are you’re constantly opening and shutting your cabinets. That’s a time-wasting step that you can avoid with open shelves. The shelving opens up decorative options as well. Signs, flowers, and pictures can adorn your shelves as well as your cooking utensils. Open shelving can add visual appeal and practicality at the same time.
- Flooring upgrades. Are you tired of walking on the cold, hard tile in your bathroom or living room? Then you can call us up at RenosGroup to add a new flooring solution. In particular, our vinyl flooring is particularly appealing, comfortable, and durable. We can discuss your flooring needs during your free in-home consultation.
Of course, these are only a few ideas you can use for renovating your home. There are countless ways that you can upgrade your home through our renovations, so we hope that you’ve begun to brainstorm.
