YOU ARE A CLIENT
Check with your provincial authorities to find out about current recommendations for renovation projects. In some parts of Canada, contractors are allowed to present quotes and carry out renovation projects starting in the upcoming days and weeks.
For example, in Quebec, all renovation projects will be allowed to start on May 11th 2020. In Ontario and Alberta, there is no set date for construction and home renovations to be relaunched. As such, strict guidelines are still in order. Please consult your provincial government website for specific information.
In the meantime, RenoQuotes is here to put you in touch with our network of contractors. We encourage clients and contractors to follow the rules and guidelines enforced by provincial authorities.

Site visit went well, all questions answered however, the written estimate was delayed more than a week.
The role of an architect covers many facets: designing plans, obtaining the materials that are necessary for the realization of the project as well as that of obtaining the required permits in order to comply with the regulations that are currently in effect.
From one architect to another, the tasks that will be assumed can vary greatly. Some architects can take care of hiring a contractor, processing invoices, managing the project and even checking the work done by the latter while others do not offer these services.
It is therefore very important to obtain a precise description of the tasks assumed by the architect of your choice so as not to have unpleasant surprises along the way.
Given the rather large budget required to hire an architect, you will have to choose them carefully. First, make sure that they will be able to meet your expectations regarding the aesthetics of your project.
Past projects in a style that is comparable to yours may be a good indication of your degree of compatibility. At another time, be sure that the rates they charge will not cause you to bust your budget.
Also, asking about the difficulties they have faced in previous projects may be a good way to assess their problem-solving skills. In the same regard, ask about the challenges they think will occur during your own project in order to evaluate how they plan to work through them.
On average, the rate applied should represent around 10% of the total cost of the project.
An architect must hold a degree from a university that has been approved by the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CABC) and a license issued by their provincial or territorial association.
In Quebec, architects are not required to hold an RBQ license in the same way as contractors but are still required to comply with the standards of the Construction Code in the drafting of plans and to make these available on the site to RBQ inspectors.
