Testimonials

Dear Home Style Construction Ltd:

With Scott’s last visit yesterday, it looks like our renovation is complete.

Congratulations on having such a talented, courteous, great team of employees. We love
the changes and will enjoy our home so much more because of them. What an excellent,
detailed, thoughtful job you did. Going above and beyond to help with the lawn disaster.

Despite the unavailable set-backs, the project came in at our agreed budget and with care
and attention to detail.

Thank you to all at Home Style Construction

Dear Cal,

Thanks so much for the beautiful work on our bathroom and electrical upgrade in the kitchen. As usual your exacting standards resulted in a first class renovation. This is the third job you’ve done for us in the last 15 years and you are always our first choice when it comes to home renovations.

What I really value is the way you stand behind your work. I was tremendously impressed when nearly ten years after one of our projects was completed, a pane in a triple glazed window dropped a few millimetres, creating a break in the seal. Although this was the result of a manufacturing defect in the window and had nothing to do with your work, you intervened on our behalf with the manufacturer and made things right. This was exceptional service and illustrates your commitment to customer satisfaction.

Your team of skilled tradesmen are first rate. They know what they are doing and take the time to talk to you whenever you have a question. My wife was always extremely impressed and grateful about how they left the job site cleaned up at the end of each and every day. Pros all the way!

Every time we use the new shower, feel the warmth of the in-floor heating, or stand before our vanity in the bathroom we are grateful for your work. This new high end bathroom replaced the very nice bathroom you originally renovated for us in 1998. There was no real need for the upgrade other than “want” and I noted how solid and dry everything still was during the demolition of the original project. We still love the family room you did for us in 2001 and have no plans to change anything about it.

Thanks for everything and if (most likely when) we decide to do another reno, Homestyle Construction will be the first company we call.

Sincerely,

Gerald and Sandra Huculak

Dear Cal,

We wanted to express in writing our complete satisfaction and enjoyment of our ensuite renovations that were recently completed by Homestyle Construction this spring. It was a big job to be sure, following in the footsteps of your prior renos to our ensuite shower and kitchen pantry. As always, the initial discussions were friendly but professional, and the recommendations and advice given were extremely helpful. As the process went along, we were kept informed of future steps. Your staff was always friendly and professional to us and the worksite was consistently treated with respect and always cleaned up after work was finished. Everyone respected our time and showed up promptly when expected. We now have our dream ensuite which we will no doubt have many years of use and pleasure.

Big thanks to all your hard working and ultimate professional staff, especially Scott, Neil and Coy. You really have all-stars in the trades working for you. And your guidance and help in getting the project off the ground to begin with and throughout was needed and appreciated. With complicated renos, there are always difficult problems that come up, but we were always assured and never felt there was anything that couldn’t be overcome and dealt with.

Now that these renos are complete, we can sit back and relax with them for a while, but we will eventually be calling you for the big one…the basement development!

We would never hesitate to recommend your company to any of our friends or people who ask, and feel fortunate to have “discovered” you and Homestyle a few years ago.

Thanks again for all the work and congrats on another job well done,

Don and Ivy Steinbring

Dear Cal,

Thank you so much for the great job that you and your staff did renovating our family room. lt turned out to be a bigger task that we originally thought when you uncovered the damage caused by the 20 lineal feet of leaking skylight and subsequent damage to the walls and roof.

During the 5 weeks that it took to complete our entire family was most impressed with the professionalism demonstrated by you, your staff, and your sub-contractors. We have renovated ourselves and with contractors many times over the 35 years that we have been in the house, and your company was exceptional. We noted how well the work was organized, the quality of the final product, the friendly staff, and the consistent good communication with us. The inconvenience of living through a renovation was minimal.

In addition to doing a superb job, you also reduced the stress for us at an important time in our lives. We had seized an opportunity to purchase another home prior to selling ours and were under pressure to complete the renovation in order to list our home as soon as possible. You did what you promised and we were able to meet our timeline.

Your staff also did extra work for us, as well as our son in his home, and this was very much appreciated. We are happy to refer your company to friends and colleagues.
Once again, a heartfelt thank you. You and your staff are the best!

Sincerely,
Tom Farrell & Anne Henderson

Dear Cal and the staff of Home Style Construction,

Well, we’ve spent the first Christmas and New Year in our “new” home. The past month has been hectic with unpacking and season’s activities, but we are settling in nicely and thoroughly enjoying our new surroundings.

From the time we purchased our 1955 vintage bungalow 25 years ago, we have been formally and informally planning how to upgrade our home when the time was right. One of the main problems was to determine the project scope, given the original condition of much of the house and our reluctance to move out during renovations. We determined that the project would emphasize energy efficiency and include a new relocated kitchen, new flooring throughout, new windows and doors, exterior re-insulation and re-stucco, soffits and eavestroughs. We needed to find a reliable contractor and that’s when we met you, through a good referral.

I recall our initial site meeting and the positive impression that we were left with. You helped us quantify a budget amount and set expectations on the overall duration of the project. You made the “getting started” part relatively easy and enjoyable, with expert suggestions. As our relationship developed, we appreciated your availability and desire for good communication. It was evident that you and your crew are well-organized and ready to deal with concerns immediately.

As things progressed, we decided to increase the scope of the project by including the bathroom, roofing, deck and interior re-finishing. Again, you guided us in suitability, product selection, and in re-establishing target completion dates. We witnessed your relationship with your staff and subtrades and how you hold them accountable for their work. We noted that the job site was always cleaned up and left tidy at the end of each day.

We really enjoyed seeing the project come together. Our home was transformed and in the last 6 weeks or so, it became evident that your qualified staff and the finishing subtrades were particularly talented. The end result is fantastic. Our thanks go out in particular to Neil, Scott and Jeremy for their outstanding workmanship and attention to detail, to the flooring techs, the stucco crew and to Harold who did such a great job on the interior decorating.

You promised us a beautiful home and Home Style has delivered. We are very grateful to Home Style for this big success story in our lives.

Don and Rosemarie

We decided to try Home Style Construction based on the recommendations of two of our friends. Not only are we completely satisfied with our renovation, our expectations were exceeded. It was so wonderful how Cal was able to help us take our ideas and wants make them into reality. The expertise that Home Style brought to our renovation was truly amazing and they treated our house as if it was their home. What we particularly appreciated about the entire experience was how Cal kept us informed and was always true to his word. We actually had Home Style do more renovations that we had originally planned because the experience and the quality of Cal’s work was was so terrific. We are are already planning our next renovation with Home Style.

Derek & Alexandra

Home Style not only does great work, they bring the job in on time and on budget. We have no hesitation in recommending Home Style to anyone. The next time we are even thinking of doing any work on our house, Cal will be our first call.

Each day when Kim and I come home from work it is an absolute pleasure to walk around and see the great work that you have done. We are extremely impressed with your work ethic, your commitment to detail, and the quality of your workmanship. These days it is not very common to find individuals with these qualities. I want you to know that we appreciate everything you have done, and because of this, the project over the past two or so months has been truly exciting. Thank you, Rick and Kim Craig.
