Ivan and his team tackled the kitchen and master bath. Two rooms that make a big difference. Ivan worked with our designer, applied his considerable knowledge and experience in addressing optimal ways to make the design work.

Ivan showed up on time, always cleaned up at the end of the day, created a workable kitchen in the midst of the renovation, and worked with a friendly and skilled team.

There was a particular tricky bit in the bathroom and one of the other contractors I interviewed had planned for a less than ideal solution. Ivan created a beautiful seamless transition which was exactly what we were hoping for. His tile work is beautiful.

Lastly, he and his team were completely trustworthy. I was comfortable leaving them to do the work in the house and not be there. Thank you Ivan and team for bringing the kitchen and bathroom into the 21st century and will last for years to come!
Professional, friendly, clean, and thoughtful

Ivan and his team were exceptional, we couldn't be happier. They were always so courteous and worked so hard to get the job finished, cleaned up so well after themselves. They even had time to answer my children's endless questions and to pet the dog! The quality couldn't be faulted - the flooring and cornering are as sharp and square as they could be. Ours is an old house and needed significant work to straighten the walls and floors and it looks perfect. Highly recommended. Will definitely use them again.

Exceptional quality
I am glad I met Ivan and hired him to renovate my Main/Ensuite Bathrooms and Powder Room. Ivan is a meticulous professional. He has a keen eye for detail and design. His dedication to his client's satisfaction is exemplary. All these qualities of his carries down to his crew team. They all did an excellent job.

I have a pleasant feeling and a smile whenever I step into my bathrooms. I am happy with my renovation.

Thank you to Ivan, Noel, Sergio and Jason.
Beautiful Bathrooms!
The amazing craftsmanship of Ivan and crew reinvented my two dated 1980’s bathrooms and gave them a new lease on life. The common bathroom came out clean and contemporary. In the ensuite bathroom, Ivan combined coloured glass tiles with white tiles resulting to an extra bright and spacious bathroom. The long vertical niche that Ivan made added a flair and the recessed lights on the shower stalls resulted to a more dramatic lighting effect. The addition of the shower panels also provided an enjoyable and relaxing home spa experience. Next project in line is my powder room.

Job well done Ivan and crew!
Bathrooms Reinvented!
They did a great job everything was fixed up cleanly and everything returned back to normal quickly.
Brako did an excellent job of installing our hardwood flooring.
Ivan and crew, Noel and Gerson did an excellent job with our bathroom and kitchen floor. We are very please with the work. Very professionally done. Every time they fished the work for the day, they clean as it looks like nothing happened. And friends who saw the work were amazingly stunned!
Highly recommend Ivan ( Brako Bathroom Specialist) he just completed a dream come true to our master bedroom washroom. Ivan and his crew did a very professional job.
I was introduced to Ivan by a colleague who said that her mom praised his work and this company. Well, that a mom would be satisfied with her bathroom renovations was a solid signal. The task at hand was pretty big, which included the renovation of 2 full bathrooms and a powder room in a heritage home.

A few important observations about Ivan: he is highly experienced and technically knowledgeable in bathroom renovations; he clearly has an artistic side; he absolutely cares about client satisfaction and the quality of his work; he is very well organized, motivated, professional, authentic, trustworthy and flexible. On top of all this, Ivan is just a joy to be around and not only did we come to love him, so did our puppy, Alvin.

I recommend Ivan with absolutely no reservations.

Another handyman completely  screwed up my bathroom renovations. The tiles were uneven, the shower door was installed improperly, basically it was a disaster. Ivan was referred to me through the TIle store and he really saved the day. Most bathroom renovators would have walked away from this project but Ivan took it on between other projects. He worked weekends and was very innovative while meeting my requirements and fixing all the problems. Very professional, fair and friendly. Thank you very much Ivan

Testimonial #6

Ivan and his team did an amazing job. They removed a built in entertainment unit, repainted the walls, added moulding and repositioned a vent in our loft. He also removed built in shelving in our storage room. He did all the work in less than a week and at a very fair price. They did an amazing job and we are planning more projects in the near future.

Ivan is professional, meticulous, creative, dependable, hard working, efficient....pretty much any adjective you would want in a contractor.  Not only is his work of highest quality, but he also has an eye for detail and patterns.  We have used him for two bathroom renovations, and would hire him again in an instant.  I recommend Ivan 's company without hesitation.
