My wife and I had a plan to construct a custom-built home since 2013 and such newly built home shall be our home for retirement. After several rounds of interview and screening, we nominated Avvio Fine Homes as our builder. Avvio Fine Homes demolished our original side-split house and built a new custom home. My wife has been in the real estate business over 35 years and we did set a very high standard for our dream home. Avvio did manage to exceed our high expectations and standards. When we started the project, the home’s structure and foundation were our biggest concern because our original house had settlement issues. Avvio designed a very special re-enforcement work to solidify the foundation. We are confident that the new house is built upon a solid foundation thanks to Avvio’s skills and earnest effort. Avvio also kept us updated on the challenges and progress during construction. They have perfected the custom building process which included great communication throughout the project. Vincent, Paul and their team were organized, professional and very patient.

Avvio is very knowledgeable about construction details and have provided very constructive way to improve the Architect’s design. They took the original design and optimized it to meet Energy Star standards with a result that achieved certification and far exceeded the standard where testing documents indicated excellent air tightness results and EnerGuide energy consumption rating. We feel the difference as our new home is very quiet and comfortable because our original home had many drafts and inconsistent temperatures. We also feel the fresh air in our new home and its energy efficiency with our energy bills being half the cost per square foot as our old home. Our new home has low operating costs and low maintenance, and we feel safe with the security enhancements that Avvio provided based on our requests.

We always had trust that our investment was safe in their hands. They stuck to their fixed price guarantee during a period when construction and material cost had been rising rapidly. We were also confident that they would provide a quality home and the first thing that struck us when we were handed the keys was that the finishes have great workmanship. They made the process easy including guiding our interior design decisions with their experience and knowledge. They have been very responsive to our questions after moving in and we feel confident that we have a Tarion Warranty.

Thanks Avvio again for fulfilling our dream on our forever home! You made our project a success and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking to build a custom home.

We contacted Avvio knowing they had constructed several houses in our neighbourhood, were knowledgeable in construction and had a proven delivery track record.

As our Project Manager, we are happy with the quality and standard of workmanship, as well as attention to detail that Avvio has delivered, which is important to us being in the design and construction field.

We know Avvio have built a house that will last, and one that we are proud to call home.

I had contacted Avvio Fine Homes because of several recommendations from trusted trades in the industry.

Upon our first meeting, immediately I was impressed by Paul and Vince’s organization, knowledge and passion afforded to me as their client.  Avvio’s site management, attention to detail, and knowledge of design, build and trades was clearly evident and proven throughout the duration of my project.

Avvio’s dedication to the build and commitment to scheduling is truly professional.  Vince has a keen ability to troubleshoot and identify any and all issues/ deficiencies and mitigate them.

Avvio prioritizes customer service and client satisfaction throughout and after completion with a substantial Tarion warranty.  I highly recommend their quality of workmanship.

We recently undertook a major project to renovate our home’s entire first and second floor and also added a pool and landscaping, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Our home has undergone a remarkable transformation, thanks to the dedicated team at Avvio Fine Homes. From start to finish, the experience was exceptional, and the outcome exceeded our expectations.

The first thing that struck us about Avvio Homes was their unwavering professionalism. They were punctual, attentive, and meticulously organized throughout the entire process. Communication was excellent, with regular updates on project progress and any changes that needed our input.

The design team showcased their creativity and expertise by taking our vague ideas and turning them into a beautiful, functional reality. They listened carefully to our vision and incorporated it into the overall design, suggesting improvements that we hadn't considered.

The craftsmanship displayed by the construction team was nothing short of exceptional. Every detail was meticulously attended to, from the flawless tilework to the precision of the trim carpentry. The attention to detail truly sets Avvio Homes apart.

One of our biggest concerns was delays and surpassing our desired end date. However, Avvio adhered to the agreed-upon timeline, completing the project within the estimated timeframe. This was a pleasant surprise and minimized the inconvenience of having our home under construction.

We were also concerned that our budget would not be met and that it would be surpassed. We were very pleased that the costs were kept within the agreed-upon range.

Avvio went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. They addressed any concerns promptly and with a solutions-oriented approach, making the entire renovation process stress-free.

Even after the renovation was complete, they continued to provide exceptional service. They ensured that we were completely satisfied with the final product and offered guidance on maintenance to keep our newly renovated spaces looking pristine.

Our renovation experience with Avvio Fine Homes was outstanding in every respect. We now have a home that not only meets but exceeds our expectations, thanks to their exceptional professionalism, design expertise, and commitment to quality. If you're considering a renovation project, we wholeheartedly recommend Avvio for a job done with excellence and care. Our heartfelt thanks to the entire team for turning our house into the home of our dreams.

One of the main things that I can say is that it is great to work with people who know what they are doing.  Vincent’s design was exactly what we wanted.  And because he designed the home, he knows it very well and was able to make quick changes during construction that satisfied our requests as well as the Ontario Building Code.

Avvio’s knowledge showed when they were able to request the necessary details from the contractors when they were quoting, and then Avvio was able to efficiently break down the contractor quotes so that we could easily compare.  This saved time for us and the project.

Vincent always knew what he was doing and what we needed to discuss or decide for upcoming project details.  Their paperwork management is very good.  All signed contracts or permits can be found very quickly whenever they were needed.  And they care about construction safety on the jobsite, throughout the project.  This reduces the potential risk and is good for everyone.

Vincent and Paul are really hardworking people and they care about the details of the home.  They built us a quality home and we are very happy with this.  Their after-sales service is also very good and they solve issues quickly.  I am able to recommend them if you are looking for a company that designs and builds great custom homes!

My wife and I bought the home from Avvio Fine Homes in 2015 after looking for a new home in the North York Area.  We were impressed with the quality of finishes and the design style – inside and out.  The quality was above other homes in the area, even the more expensive homes, and the design was timeless but fresh and new.  The large stainless steel fridge in the kitchen and large master walk-in closet were both impressive features!  And it included a Tarion Warranty, which other new homes in the area usually did not, which also made this home stand out from the rest.

Vince and Paul were very helpful in showing us the features of the home as well as answering questions after we moved in.  They are very knowledgeable and professional.  We also trusted them enough to design and build another home for us, though we ended up needing to sell the property before we started construction.  I would definitely recommend them to design and build your new home!

I purchased this home from the original owner, who had purchased the home from Avvio Fine Homes.  Even though I was not the original purchaser, Avvio still took the time to meet me at the home and review the home with me.  They answered my questions and continue to help me with routine maintenance by responding quickly and clearly.

I purchased the home because of its beautiful design, great style and quality.  My home really shows Avvio’s vision and that they have knowledge of the neighbourhood.  I am routinely complimented! The home is very well built and has excellent workmanship. After owning the home for several years, I have not had one single issue with the construction.

Their attention to detail, knowledge and professionalism is second-to-none.  I trust Vince and Paul and can recommend them for their great work!  They really care and are passionate about what they do.
