Jim was my last hope of getting my basement renovated properly.  I must admit I was on a budget and was looking for contractors that were affordable for me; this showed in the work that had been done prior to Jim coming and saving the project.  Before Jim I’d had a framer to replace the existing framing – he swore his work was perfect, but the dry-wallers who followed were unable to put up drywall in some areas where he hadn’t framed at all or hadn’t framed properly and left me and my husband with a few areas to do ourselves.  We did the best we could to get the framing/drywall ready for taping/mudding, but it wasn’t perfect.  When Jim and Ron arrived, they were my knights in shining armour. They weren’t mean spirited about the work we’d done ourselves or the poor work the other contractors had done, even though he could clearly see the errors that had been made. 


Jim gave us good advice to prepare before he started his work – advice which would give us a better quality end result, things that the previous ‘professionals’ hadn’t paid any attention to and we were happy for anything that Jim could help us with.


When Jim and Ron arrived to start the job, they were on time and respectful of my home. They communicated clearly and kept me up to date on what was going on. They took measures to protect my property and they worked quickly, efficiently and they cleaned up after themselves!  These two gentlemen were so honest that they even showed me the empty containers of product to prove they weren’t ripping me off.

The final result is a top quality job.  They used their magic to mask a lot of imperfections in my old house and my old tired basement looks brand new again for a very reasonable price.


I looked long and hard to find an honest and reliable contractor and it really is a gamble out there when you really don’t know what you’re getting.  Jim and Ron not only cared about the work that they did, but they also cared about the project as a whole and how it would look after I had primed and painted, they even gave me tips for painting and finishing the rest of the job even though I was trying to save money by doing it myself.


I had several bad experiences  with contractors before and now I couldn’t be happier that I found Jim and Ron to end my renovation on a very high note.  I have no hesitation to recommend this company to anyone, in fact, I think you would be foolish to use anyone else.

We were very fortunate to hire THE best for our basement renovation which included ceiling removal, drywall installation, priming and painting. We decided to hire Attwood's Drywall & Taping because they have 36 years of experience. Jim and Ron are very skilled and passionate about their workmanship and it shows. Their work is top quality which comes with many years of experience, hard work and dedication. They are very hardworking, dependable with great work ethic and respect for homeowners. They arrived on time every day and did an amazing job cleaning up the space at the end of each day. We were very happy with the quality of their work and can't wait for them to return to tackle our mudroom. Renovations can be stress free if you hire the right professionals. Jim offers fair pricing, doesn't take any money up front and delivers projects on time and on budget. We have already recommended Attwood's Drywall & Taping to our friends. Thanks again Jim and Ron. You rock!

We had several contractors give us quotes for a reno we planned in our home that included completely gutting an area and repurposing  it. The quotes came from contractors recommended to us but Jim was straight off an internet search as we were just not feeling confident in any of the contractors we had met so far.

 From the very first Jim impressed us with his enthusiasm for our project and obvious vast knowledge, He was down to earth and gave us great suggestions to save us money and or improve our plan. He gave us a quote which was very reasonable and that is exactly what we paid at the end of the project. They were polite and respectful including the trades people he called in (plumber and electrician) at all times and always cleaned up the work area so we had little to no disruption during the process. The job was done in a timely fashion and was completely on schedule. 

We wanted to do some of the finishings ourselves and he was understanding of that and in fact went out of his way to make sure that he left things so we had an easy time with it and offered all kinds of great advice for us.

We literally have not one complaint, we're very happy with the quality of the workmanship and pleased with our new rooms. 

100% recommmend !!

Thanks for the 20 plus years we have been working together. There is a good reason why our relationship as exceeded 20 years and that is simply because of the product you consistently provide us. You have always been a man with a wealth of knowledge and we appreciate all the times you have allowed us to pick your brain. To anyone wishing to use your services, I would tell them that your work is above all other we have seen. You are direct, firm, and there is never any guessing about what you think. Your work stands for itself, and Ron and your crew are flawless. It is amazing the quality you achieve in such a short time. We don’t come across a level 4+ finish (level 5 if requested) often. You continuously impress our clients and help make our final product a success. It has been our pleasure to work with both you and Ron and look forward to working with you for many more years to come.

OUTSTANDING!!!!!------Attwood's Drywall was recommended to us by a neighbour because of the excellent quality work they had done at his home.  Attwood's Drywall were a little difficult to schedule but after we saw their work ethic and the outstanding quality of their work we totally understood why they are in such demand. They arrived on time every day, took serious precautions to protect our home while they were working , thoroughly cleaned up at the end of each day and finished on schedule and on budget. You can't get any better than that!

It was a pleasure to watch them work. They are very knowledgeable in a number of fields and willing to share their " trade secrets " with the homeowner for DIY  projects. We were impressed with their professionalism.  There's an artistry to the way they apply tape and "mud" and the finished product was completed to a very high standard. We wish we had found them sooner.

Through a referral, I hired Attwood's Drywall and Taping. My first impression of them was impressive, as they were very knowledgeable and extremely professional regarding the construction industry. This being said, you never really know who you're hiring unless you get a referral from a friend or see their work and judge for yourself. In my case, I had the opportunity to witness these guys taping (drywall), and it was amazing watching them work as they are very fast and don't seem to miss a thing. Also, originating from a construction background, I understand the processes involved, and I have come to expect a certain level of excellence. They had an almost artistic approach to there job, yet a bulldog tenacity to get the job done right and on time. They will never leave a job unless it's done right. Therefore, in considering how amazing these guys work, I would recommend them to anyone looking for professional tapers and construction related jobs. In addition, they are well connected in the construction industry, so you wont have to worry about other trades.

I recently had the privilege of using the services of Attwood's Drywall & Taping to finish an office in my basement. There has been no other contractor that I have used in the past, that has even come close to the quality of work and detailing that they provided on this project. Every square inch of the space was impeccable and finished beautifully. I have and will continue to recommend them to any one who is looking for quality drywall, taping, painting, construction and detailing. They will be back to do more.

I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you for the fine job Attwood's Drywall & Taping did performing renovations to my home.You were involved in a wide variety of repairs which included textured ceiling repairs, repainting of ceilings, replacement of interior doors and hardware, cosmetic repairs and repainting of the entire interior of my home. The bathroom renovation looks fabulous! I still can't get over how beautiful it looks with the new tub, floor and wall tiles. The quality of workmanship is second to none. I am greatly impressed by the attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction which are displayed in all aspects of your work. The renovations moved along at a smooth pace thanks to your great work ethic. You showed up as expected, got things done at an amazing pace and never left a mess at the end of the day. On a more personal note, I would like to let you both know how thankful I was to be able to leave my home under your care while I was dealing with the passing of my mother. Your good nature and kind words were very supportive. I feel I have made a couple of new friends.I look forward to having you both back early next year to finish my entire basement. I would highly recommend your company to anyone looking for quality renovations at reasonable rates.


Thank you.
