Why Catalyst

A few reasons to believe in Catalyst for your next project.

Why Catalyst

Building Trust

At Catalyst, we’re here to continue to build a company that will proudly serve the Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph area for years to come. We are proud to have many repeat customers as well as many referrals from past customers. Our customers (past and present) trust us to transform their home; WE ARE HONOURED TO HAVE THAT RESPONSIBILITY.

Building Change

We’re constantly training our crew on new techniques, technologies, and products used in the renovation and construction arena. Some “Old school” methods are out-dated, times have changed and often there is a better way – if you’re willing to take some time to educate yourself.  We have done just that and will always invest to stay current. The innovation doesn’t stop there; we have implemented a cloud-based construction management software system. It keeps track of all of our projects in real time – plus all customers have access online or through an app on your smartphone!

Why Catalyst2


With over 80 years combined experience among our owners, managers, and staff – we’ve got the know-how to get your project completed in a timely manner and with quality workmanship. Construction, and especially renovation projects require a high degree of flexibility and being adept at problem solving. The Catalyst team is very proficient; we have the skill and knowledge base to handle issues quickly and efficiently.

Our skilled craftsmen are the best at what they do which makes for efficient and professionally completed work. Being fully licensed, we have $5 million in liability insurance, and all of our employees covered by the WSIB. Not only is this the law for all contractors, but it also protects our customers in the unlikely event of a job-site accident.

Constant Communications

We keep our clients up-to-date with what’s going on with their project if they can’t be on-site – phone, text, BBM, or email – whatever works best for you. Our cloud-based project management software allows you to check its status anytime, anyplace.

We care for your home like you would – paths of travel throughout it will be protected from any debris/damage and the job site will be left clean and organized at the end of each day.

Our employees and sub-trades are all kept up to speed on day-to-day and overall scheduling of the project through cloud-based software. Everyone is on the same page, that means your project is done on time and ensures smooth workdays for all involved.

Firm Pricing

Barring any changes you’d like to make to your project, we will never come back to you for “extra” costs we didn’t account for. There are no hidden costs, no surprise fees, and no unexpected extras.

Of course, there may be issues uncovered during demolition. Should this situation arise, we review options with you to develop the best and most cost-effective solution.

Each project has its own legally binding contract that lays out every detail of your project such as: materials, completion dates, payment schedules, and all other important information.

Every project we complete is backed by a two-year-no-questions-asked warranty. Another great perk? This warranty is transferable to new homeowners should you decide to move during that time.

Easy Payments

Payment schedules help us to avoid the 50% deposits that many other contractors require. At Catalyst you pay as the work is completed. You can also ask us about our financing options!

We’re fully registered and in good standing with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) with a rating of A+; proud member of the Chamber of Commerce; and 5-star rated by our clients on Trusted Pros.

We Listen

We put you first unlike some contractors like to see their own ideas come to life before their client’s . We make sure we listen to all your wants and needs so that the final project reflects your style, not ours.
