Frequently asked questions



Q: How do I know that I'm getting the best quality and consideration for my money?
A: Trust your personal references from friends, family and co-workers, and check out any references I provide to you. Also, make your way to trustedpros.ca to check my customer feedback rating.

Q: How many total years of experience to do have in construction?
A: I have 29 yrs of background in the home construction and renovation field.


Q: How do I know my project is on the top of you priority list?
A: When I start a project, I stay day after day until it is finished. I don't skip from project to project, unless a break in the work is required. ie:drying drywall/paint, waiting for special orders items etc.

Q: Do I need a permit?
A: Generally, YES. If you are making any changes or alterations to your existing home layout, the city of Edmonton requires you to have permits. I suggest complying with local regulations.

Q: How is your estimates structured and how long should I expect to wait for one?
A: I dont provide estimates. I provide quotes, which means your cost wont increase unless relevant factors change. My quotes are structured, legally binding contracts. They are detailed from work performed down to payment schedule. You can expect to wait a few days to 1 week depending on the project scope.

Q: Do you hire help?
A: I prefer to work alone so I can control the quality of the work. However, there are instances where some types of work are impossible to do alone, and I will get additional help in those cases. Also, to comply with local regulation, electrical and plumbing contractors are sub contracted.

Q: How long can expect to wait for you to start my project?
A: Wait times will vary greatly depending on the length of my currently booked projects. As little as a couple weeks to as long as 4 months.

Q: Do you have guarantees on your work?
A: Yes, I give a 13 month limited guarantee against defects in workmanship on all projects. Again, ask your references if they've had to make a call back.

Q: Why should I hire a you and not do the work myself?
A: Some homeowners either don't have the time to invest in renovations, or simply do not have the skills to produce the finish quality neccessary to demand an increase in your homes value. In fact, if you are going to spend the money on materials anyway, it is important to get a high quality, finished project so you are not wasting your precious time and money.

Q: What makes your a better renovator than the next guy?
A: I have had the rare opportunity early in my career to learn from, and be instilled with "old school" mentality, that it's most important to produce quality work, not how fast, but how well you do it. After all, at the end of the day it's the smile and satisfaction on the homeowners face, and the fact that the job was completed to best of my knowledge and skill. That makes me happy as well.

Q: What factors might increase the overall cost of my project when it comes to labor?
A: Changes in design, additions or unecessary delays will cause increases in labor.
