    My sister and brother in law used Powell for their complete house renovation a few years ago. I was always … More impressed by the quality and workmanship throughout their home so I knew exactly who to call when it came time to renovate our house. We are nearing the end of the renovation and I have nothing but good things to say about Powell. They renovated our entire main floor down to the studs, as well as parts of our basement which included 2 bathrooms and electrical work. Our main floor kitchen is a show stopper and the heart of our home. Our project manager, Daniel, has always been honest, action-oriented and easy to work with. He works hard to ensure we are always happy and satisfied with the end result. We always felt supported and properly guided. Daniel, the Powell team and their trades are all exceptionally professional. I would recommend Ed and his team to anyone.
