Of the many General Contractors that we, Pickup Plumbing Contractors, do business with, I have to say that Valery and Paul of Lionfish Developments are without a doubt one of the top builders in Toronto.They are very knowledgeable, detail oriented, organized and professional. I have had the opportunity to work with them on a number of their projects and it is always a positive experience.

From the initial start-up of a new job until the finishing touches, Valery and Paul are very involved during the process, and they always provide all of the information needed for a successful rough-in and finishing. I have seen the ecstatic home owners when they move back into their newly renovated homes and it is a truly special thing to be involved in the magical works of Lionfish Developments.

I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a very high quality product delivered on time by some of the nicest people I know.

I have collaborated with Valery & Paul for over 2 years now and find their work outstanding. Their vision to take something old and run down to something new and beautiful is most impressive.

They are easy to work with and always remain positive in the challenges of renovating & building. I am amazed at how quickly and efficiently they are able to create their transformations from old to spectacular. They use quality materials and don’t take short cuts or skimp unlike many others in their field.

I look forward to every new project with Lionfish Design.

We chose to work with LionFish Design for our home renovation because Val and Paul have an outstanding work ethic, great attention to detail and they deliver on time and on budget.

They have an amazing sense of space and style, and bring their exquisite taste to both classic and contemporary design projects. Plus, their team of trades are professional, courteous and a pleasure to have in our home. We are extremely pleased with the results and we will continue to use them in the future, as well as refer them to our friends and clients.

Working with Lionfish for our recent renovation has been such a pleasure. Val and Paul understood that we had a tight timeline and they were able to keep on time and on budget. No small task with such a large project.

They made the renovation as seamless and stress free as possible. We had to make a lot of decisions in a short time frame and they helped us not only with the build but offering choices on tile and flooring, kitchen and lighting ideas. Always available by phone or text I always knew I could communicate easily and readily when needed.

Working with Lionfish was an absolute pleasure. Val and Paul made our very big decision an organized and painless process. The huge job was not only on time, but a month early. They were at the site regularly, sent us daily photos keeping us in the loop, and made the entire process as stress free as any reno could be.

I cannot recommend them enough – they gave us the home of our dreams!

My husband and I have had the opportunity to work several times with Val and Paul of Lionfish Developments.

Their interior designs are stunning, the quality of their renovation workmanship is superb, they are among the nicest and most professional people we have met in the Toronto Design/Build industry and we would not hesitate to recommend them.

We retained Valery and Paul after our friends strongly recommended them (Lionfish had worked on our friends’ current home and they had great things to say.

We found their work to be of excellent quality and their use of materials second to none. Lionfish responds to emails and requests in a timely and effective manner. They were often onsite and sent us regular updates which we found helpful. They have a sense of humour and deliver on both their time and quote estimates. We would be so pleased to work with Val and Paul again – we love our newly renovated house thanks to them both and their fantastic team.


Lionfish has worked on our own personal home and many of our clients. Incredible design, solid construction and a home we are incredibly happy and proud of. Top notch professionals! Always approachable and constantly innovative.

Best in the business!
