We are licensed in the province of Ontario for relevant projects. We carry liability, disability and worker’s compensation insurance with total coverage of $2 million.

This is difficult to answer, as different projects/structures in different parts of the house will cost varying amounts. E.g. If you are simply adding a retaining wall to improve drainage, the cost is lower than building a new driveway.

Once the concept and plans are completed and approved by you, Topaz Construction can provide an accurate price estimate.

It depends on the project. For basement floors, garage floors and most porches concrete is the best way to go. All other ground level structures can be either concrete or stone.

Wood posts are consistent with the look of the rest of the wooden fence but metal posts offer some contrasts that is also appealing to most people. The advantage of metal post is that they at least five times the lifespan of even 6×6 wooden posts, thus the lifespan of the fence or deck.

We do our own demolition at a fraction of what a demolition company would charge. However, if the client wishes to hire a demolition firm or has already done so, we adapt to the work environment.

As long as the surface is level and properly prepared. We do not charge extra for the preparation and evaluation.

Limestone is always a beautiful option for steps. However, steps should be taken to make sure it doesn’t disintegrate within a short period after installation. If installed properly, it should last as long as any other stone finish.
