Yes, we do on most projects.
This initial payment varies from one job to another and pays for materials and labour to start your project, as well as any custom materials that must be ordered in advance.
Additional payments are made on a milestone basis. This allows you to see that certain work has been done before releasing the next payment.
We offer a two-year warranty on all workmanship. Any installed materials or fixtures that carry a longer warranty (e.g., faucets with a lifetime warranty) are transferred to you.
Yes, we carry $5M in general liability insurance, as well as $2M in liability on each work vehicle.
We carry WCB-Alberta coverage and require that all of our sub-contractors do as well. By insisting on type of coverage and checking daily to ensure it’s up to date, we are not only protecting our workers, but also our clients.
Absolutely. If we can’t do a job safely, then we can’t do it at all.
Our employees and clients are our greatest asset, and their safety is our top priority. As such, we endeavour to ensure a safe and healthy work environment. This is reflected in our participation in
- the Certificate of Recognition (COR) program, a health and safety initiative offered through the Alberta Construction Safety Association
- the Personal Injury Reduction (PIR) program offered through the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) of Alberta
We also have a comprehensive health and safety program to minimize the chances of an incident.
We currently have six full-time employees working on job sites, two office staff and our owner is active in the business.
We have business licences in St. Albert and Edmonton. We have a Prepaid Contractor licence from Service Alberta, and, as needed, we will buy additional business licences in jurisdictions in which we are working. All of our sub-trades are similarly licensed.
Not at this time. We are available during regular business hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
This means that we complete a project that is ready to use immediately. All you have to do is turn the key to open your room and start using it!
We accept cash, cheques, bank drafts, Visa, American Express and MasterCard for all projects. Receipts are provided for all work.
Unfortunately, no. We are a legitimate business doing high quality work, and we do not contribute to the black market for materials or labour. We believe you get what you pay for, and offering to pay cash to a fly-by-night contractor will only lead to heartache.
We only do turnkey renovations in which we supply all the labour and materials. We are flexible, however—especially if you have a fixture or equipment not generally available that needs specialized experience to install. Our main concern is that our name and reputation will be on the project when it’s done, so we prefer to control the quality of materials and workmanship directly.
