Sandra Girasoli's Testimonial

"In a time when energy costs are rising through the roof, I thought it would be smart to find out more about energy efficient renovations. I had no clue where to find out more but was lucky enough to learn about from one of my friends. The site is great! It has thousands of articles to help homeowners like me learn about renovating plus this cool free service that let me submit my question about an energy audit to an eRenovate Expert. Within a day I had a great answer, including 3 links to more information on energy audits, government rebate programs and comparisons of energy efficient furnaces. eRenovate made it so simple and convenient. When I am ready to renovate my home, I know I will get all the help I need at"

"Work keeps me extremely busy these days, so I don't have the time to contact and screen contractors one at a time. made it simple and convenient to post my project and quickly receive multiple quotations from qualified contractors. is a great timesaver for Canadian homeowners!"

Dao Le's Testimonial

"We had two projects for our new townhouse - landscaping and installing pot lights plus decor switches. We received lots of quotations using eRenovate for the landscaping, but we opted to go with a contractor from another source. The work they did was good, but it did not meet all of our expectations. In hindsight, we should have gone with the one we found in eRenovate. When it came to the electrical project we used eRenovate and found a great electrician. He gave us exactly what we wanted, on time and on budget!”

Tanya Escobar's Testimonial
