Home Renovation is a Puzzle to Add Space and Comfort by Designing & Building Cost-Effective Solutions that Raise Property Values.

Just what is required to transform a mid-century suburban house into a million-dollar family home?

A capable general contractor directing experts is the best way to renovate a house and raise property value.  Eastview has skilled home renovators who are experienced professionals, and we can envision cost-effective solutions and manage suppliers and skilled tradespeople as we work together to complete the project. Our construction company provides flawless administration, reputable architects, and engineers plus a wide array of specialized trades. Everyone gets bundled together and becomes an effective business entity. One step beyond other construction companies, Eastview Homes is a property owner’s passport to prosperity, comfort and style.

Eastview has a signature approach to renovating and remodeling houses; our designs improve the livability of homes by adding comfort and convenience. We do this by concealing appliances, removing walls, adding islands to the kitchen and making dual function rooms to maximize floor space and let sunlight flow through the building.  We upgrade bathrooms with glass block and marble countertop vanities, we move shelves and add cupboards. Windows are positioned to afford the best views and capture the most daylight and fresh air.

Eastview's experts take inspiration from the future they're constructing. In our first walk-through of the property, we note the angle of the sun and how the house is situated, and what it says to the world. In older buildings, we're like gem-cutters seeking flaws and dull facets that need brightening. In our first walk through we'll conceive improvements which become schematics to improve the comfort and value of the property.  Our efficiency experts move stairways, delete walls, double doors, raise ceilings, and add kitchen islands which are ideal for parents supervising their kids after-school. Eastview Homes builds remarkable residential envelopes.

Side-split houses with bedrooms over the garage and stairs in the center of the home were constructed all across Burlington, Oakville and Mississauga in the 1950's and 60's, and these awkward structures are steadily being remodeled today as property values increase throughout the region. They're usually expanded with home additions and or renovated to modernize their interiors. Like diamonds-in-the-rough, their faded vinyl sides or red brick exteriors are resurfaced with all-natural wood siding, stylish wooden columns and comfortable front porches. Each house gains curb appeal and becomes more attractive, surrounded by the tall trees of mature neighbourhoods.

How To Begin a Home Renovation? Outline the Process

Sketch your own designs of the renovation and remodeling solution you're dreaming of creating.  Homeowners should agree on their vision when they present their ideas to contractors. Make sure you have the funding required to match your dreams. If you can provide an intelligible outline of your ideas to your building contractor, we will find the best-suited architects and engineers. The design process begins with sketches and spawns drafts and finally working schematics. These blueprints are required for permits. The construction process that follows begins by clearing the work area. 1) Securing the foundation, and next we 2) fortify load-bearing beams and add structural supports, for 3) demolition that always precedes major construction. We'll add steel beams to support more weight upstairs, and then move walls, add windows. A major upgrade might see Eastview excavating to increase the footprint of the house by making a rear addition, or by raising the roof with a second story addition. Then we'll construct new walls complete with new electrical, plumbing and HVAC.  We'll insulate and drywall these new surfaces, and then paint and finish the new rooms. Finish carpenters will add baseboards, crown molding, and trim around windows and doors.  Experienced carpenters will also construct built-in elements like bookcases and breakfast nooks. Last is the final floor, a laminate or solid hardwood surface, (or tile or engineered wood) that's laid down at the end of the project for obvious reasons.

Is it cheaper to rebuild or remodel?

It’s always cheaper to remodel.  Even a wide-ranging whole-house remodel will still be cheaper than tearing down and building a new structure on the property. Developers who do tear down existing buildings have given up on trying to solve the profitability puzzle. The question: what parts of the old house can be saved and what must be deleted to make way for new additions? is an expensive conundrum. The venture ranks high among the greatest gambles most people ever make.

Do I need an architect to remodel my house?

Architects and engineers are not required for small scale projects like installing countertops, flooring, ceilings or for any elements that do not change the structure of the house. But generally speaking, Eastview Homes tackles bigger jobs which do require Architectural Design experts and structural engineers to approve their work. We employ professional drafts people and rank this among our core strengths.

What's the difference between renovating and remodeling?

The words renovate and remodel are often used interchangeably when it comes to home improvement but there's a big difference between the two concepts. Renovation is done to 'refresh' something old and make it new again. The word comes from the Latin renovatio which means renewal.  Remodeling by comparison is more elaborate.  Remodeling requires a design change. The dictionary defines remodeling as, 1. to model again, and 2. to reconstruct; make over.  So at first glance it seems apparent that re-modeling is the more complicated task, as it requires new schematics be created, which implies the participation of architects and engineers, or at the very least skilled design-build contractors.  Renovation is less complicated on the other hand is less complicated and oftentimes can be done by the property owners themselves without building permits or even schematics.

This note is just a small thank you in comparison to the job you did for us in our newly renovated home. We are so pleased with the quality of your work and that it was done in the scheduled time frame. With a young family an the both of us working we knew that any type of renovation was going to be challenging in our home.

From the very beginning of our renovation experience with Eastview Homes, the communication was great! It was very reassuring to know that Keith was there to answer any of our questions. Keith worked hard with us to find the best cost effective solutions, and made sure we were promptly updated with any changes.


I have worked with Keith over the past several years on numerous homes and additions, but never on my own home. As an architect, attention to detail is paramount. We contracted Eastview Homes to build a rear addition and kitchen to replicate the existing Arts and Crafts era character of the original house. The work was executed remarkably well in a timely fashion.

Rerouting laundry into the basement to expand the mudroom in the garage entry. Keith's team is stellar, everyone was very friendly and professional. They made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. The quality of the job was top notch and we are very satisfied with the job.


We wanted to open up our main floor to create an open concept feel in the kitchen/living room. Keith suggested we put a flush mount beam in the ceiling to open the space up and also to have a seamless transition between the two rooms. I couldn't be happier with the finished product and we are excited to be moving back into our new home!


The communication of schedules and on going work made it easy for our family to continue to live in our home during construction without any disruptions. From quotation to design to final product, Eastview Homes  should be your only choice. We plan on working with them again in the near future on another project.


Our plan was to redo the kitchen and both of the bathrooms in the house. Keith suggested we remove the load bearing wall between the living room and the kitchen to give the war time house an open concept feel. Glad we did, Keith and his crew showed up when they said they would  and were very thorough with their work at every stage of the process. 


We hired Keith and Eastview Homes to renovate our entire main floor. When Keith came over he had such amazing ideas. We were so impressed  by the entire team's professionalism. They cleaned up each night which was a wonderful surprise. We couldn't be more happy with the results and it's as if we are living in a brand new house!
