Here are the answers

  1. (c) RenoMark™ is a program especially for professional renovators. The renovators pay a fee to become members. As members of RenoMark™, they must be honest, insured, courteous, reliable, and follow a strict set of guidelines.
  2. (b) Hiring a RenoMark™ renovator is the surest way to peace of mind at all times. You don’t even have to be there while the work is going on. Your RenoMark™ renovator stays constantly in touch, responds quickly to your calls or messages within a two business days, keeps you informed at all times, and diligently follows up every job.
  3. (a) RenoMark renovators must give you a detailed, written contract for all jobs, big or small, and provide a two-year warranty on all work except minor repairs. They ensure that all sub-contractors have Workers Compensation Board coverage, and that necessary approvals and permits are in place.
  4. (a) RenoMark renovators prides themselves on a clean, safe worksite. They keep the site tidy while they work, always clean up before they leave, carry a minimum of $2 million in liability insurance and provide a clearance certificate from the Worker Safety Insurance Board.
  5. (c) RenoMark renovators say what they mean and mean what they say. They back it up with business licenses, by being a member in good standing of the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association (GOHBA) and by abiding by the GOHBA Code of Ethics. They take your business and your property seriously.
  6. (b) RenoMark renovators stay current, through consistent and continuing education, in their professional knowledge of building codes, permit procedures and technical skills. They are a wealth of information and will help to keep you informed, too.
  7. (b) RenoMark renovators don’t work for cash or the lowest bid they can get away with. In fact, they speak out – loudly − against the underground economy. When they work for you, their work is guaranteed high-quality. Such quality will cost more than the guy down the street with a few tools in his belt. But you won’t have to renovate again for many, many years. A RenoMark renovation stands the test of time.
  8. (c) RenoMark renovators know all too well how people get scammed by fly-by-night operators, or even companies that appear to be on the up-and-up. They’ve seen the horror stories; they’ve heard the sad tales of people who have been let down, even ruined, by unscrupulous people who call themselves contractors. Their promise to you is simple: they’ll be there at the beginning, middle, end, and afterwards. They put it in writing. They won’t let you down.
