Our passion for professionalism and a well-defined systems approach truly makes a difference in our business and has positioned PROBUILT as one of the most sought after award-winning renovation companies.


Our strong reputation and brand recognition in the Greater Toronto Area, is courtesy of the hundreds of satisfied customers who continue to refer us to their family and friends. Their word is the most valuable testament to the quality of design, construction and service we provide.




Planning for a new home or renovation can be an exciting, challenging and sometimes overwhelming experience. Everything starts with quality design, and it is critical that there is a solid plan in place to ensure that your new home or renovation project reflects your personal lifestyle, design and architectural tastes.


PROBUILT has developed the PROPLAN® Lifestyle Planning Guide to assist in the materials selection and design of your new home or renovation project. It is equally useful for selecting from a library of existing plans as well as guiding you in the design of a custom home or renovation. You will be asked to define priorities, establish needs and explore adjacencies, all of which combine to form a foundation of guidelines from which to proceed.


From the moment you engage PROBUILT you’ll know you’re in good hands. From the Initial Consultation meeting with Michael and our design team you’ll be introduced to the Company, and learn about our systematic process and be comforted by our disciplined approach.


Our professional Design Proposals are created based on the scope of work required, and be assured that PROBUILT will deliver the best solutions and realistic timelines to ensure yours is a stress-free renovation project.




We think of everything, and take care of all the details. Part of our process is to ensure no surprises for you or your neighbours. We hand deliver our Letter of Introduction to each neighbour on your street advising of our start date and the expected duration of your project. As well, through our Client Directives meeting, we determine anticipated parking concerns and take measures to eliminate any disruptions to the neighbourhood.
