I hired Jan to renovate my home – a run-down house in the Annex. He transformed the house into a beautiful home and I was so happy with the results that it was Jan I called years later when we had more funds to renovate areas left untouched in the first pass. He has an investment and belief in quality that simply does not allow him to let him do anything but a high quality job. He is not only my contractor but has become a personal friend – a rare occurrence in this business and a testament to his personal integrity and the excellent work done by his team.

Hello again, Jan…

It was good to see you today. You look like you’ve had a good summer. I told you this morning, but will repeat here, how pleased I am with the bathroom/bedroom renovation that you and your team accomplished. Surely I risk missing someone here, but please forward my thanks to Marion, Gregory, Marchin, the gentleman who helped Marion with the flooring, the painter, the plasterer … so many. And if you have the info, I’d appreciate an email address for Elvin and Luigi. I have some pics for them. What fine tile work they did. So thanks again, and please do forward this message to all who helped.
With gratitude,
James Moore, Ph.D.

We have used Jan Duma as our contractor for over twenty years. Over the years, he has done extensive re-modeling and restoration work on our houses in High Park, in downtown Toronto and in our condominium. We have found him to be a dedicated and reliable, fair priced worker who does excellent work, including period restoration.

Jan Duma and his crew at Dumas renovated my 2,000 square foot century home in west-end Toronto five years ago. After interviewing numerous contractors, Jan won us over with his demonstrable attention to detail (we visited some of his previous projects) and this simple sentence: “It would be an honour to work on your house”. I have recommended Jan numerous times since, and I always tell people that Jan is not the least nor most expensive contractor,  but that you will not easily find a match in the level of care and quality of execution he brings to his work. Were I to do it over I would hire Jan again in a heartbeat.

Working with Jan and his team was one of the very best decisions we made. When we demolished and redid our entire condo 3 years ago, Jan helped us with every phase of the construction and in designing every room. Jan is knowledgeable, creative, competent and professional; he has a great attitude and an excellent work ethic. He  listened to us and helped us figure out what would and would not work. He calls when he says he will, shows up for the job on time and does outstanding work. His talents included design changes and the creation of new spaces.

All of his team’s work,  from carpentry to tile work, was done with great professionalism and craftsmanship. At the end of the day, the team always cleaned up whatever they could to reduce the stress of a major construction project
