What Our Clients Say
I am so pleased and happy that Jamie and his team did my Restaurant. Jamie and his team are very approachable, conscientious, organized and efficient. With a competitive and affordable price that produce high quality and exquisite results ,this company is highly recommendable.Mary
I first hired Jamie and his team to do a sliding door+deck install and a kitchen and bathroom renovations. The house was to be flipped so I wanted quality work while keeping the costs under control. Jamie and his subs did a fine job. The cost estimates were good, the workers showed up on time. I hired them again a year or two later to build a heated garage. See review on that soon.
They did a beautiful 1800 square foot basement development, with full built-ins, wet bar, rec room, bathroom and bedrooms. All staff associated with Jamie and his team were very courteous and proficient in the jobs that were carried out. The project was completed on time, with minimal overtures. We couldn’t be more happy and have been referring them to all our friends and family.
How to Choose the Right General Contractor in Calgary for Your Project?
If you’re in the market for a contractor in the Calgary area, here are five questions you should be asking when interviewing prospective contractors.
The first one is to get some references. While the best place to start is always with friends and family, you can also get references from the contractors you are talking to. Any reputable contractor worth their salt will be happy to give them to you.
What I would suggest you do is ask those people you speak with about their experience with the project and with that contractor. What went well and what didn’t go well. Take these notes down and keep them for when you make your final decision.
You can also get detailed reviews and references on third party sites places such as the Better Business Bureau and your local Homebuilders Association. These sites will be able to tell you which contractors are in good standing and which aren’t. You also can go to the national kitchen and bath association as well as there’s a multitude of other third-party review sites such as guild quality, etc.
I know this may seem obvious to you, but most of the people who you meet and who claim to be contractors do not have a license. And it is a more frequent case if the contractor concerned is new to the business or if it is a local operation. If the contractor you are hiring does not have a valid license, you cannot go to your state’s licensing board and have access to his bond or file a complaint if the work is not good or if he takes off before the work is completed.
No one likes to see anyone get hurt, but unfortunately, it happens all the times, especially in the construction site. Please make sure that the people working on your project are properly insured so, in case of any misfortunate event, and they will be well taken care of.
You can do this by asking your contractor for a certificate of insurance. This is not an unusual request, so “most” professional contractors should not be surprised or feel insulted by request.
The certificate of insurance should have the name of the insurance company providing the insurance coverage. It’s mainly a snapshot that provides the verification of effective insurance. Furthermore, it will have the policy and the no policy limits along with some other important information.
You’ll also find on the certificate a producer or an agent’s name. It’s a good idea to check with the listed person to make sure the listed information is valid and that the policy is still in effect.
A professional contractor will always ask you to review and record the “legal” contact before beginning to work on your project.
As a homeowner, it is also your responsibility to request a written contract before the work begins. You want to ensure that this contract contains a detailed description of the work in progress and the price of each individual item. Make sure there is a payment schedule. In what way are you supposed to pay the contractor? In some cases, it is 50% lower than a third when the work is partially completed and the remaining 50% balance due upon completion.
Work to ensure that the contract has a start date and a completion date, especially for larger projects. Verify that the warranties and guarantees are clear and understandable. If you are still unclear, it may be a good idea to consult a lawyer to review the contract before signing it.
Speaking of signing, make sure that both you and the contractor have signed the contract and if you need to make any changes to your contract, get them in writing, so both you and the contractor are protected.
I hope that the advice I have outlined in this guide will help you find the right contractor for you. Again, remember that as a customer, you have complete freedom to choose your contractor, after all, it’s your home, and it’s your hard-earned money.
Before making a decision, consider the contractor’s service record. How have they served their customers in the past and how long have they been in the business? Preferably, 5 to 10 years of positive track record should be enough to prove their ability. Finally, do not be forced to make an immediate decision, especially if you are signing a contract. You will want to interview several contractors and review several bids before making a decision.
Follow the suggestions I have outlined in this guide, and I am sure they will help you find a competent and professional contractor for your home’s renovation project.
