Basement mudding and taping

Their estimate was way off. Ended up paying $1400 more on the job, even though it took a 2 hour detailed inspection to provide the initial quote. It would have been nice to go with a close estimate from the beginning to budget my work.

I spoke to Bob And he will send someone to treat dents after priming.

I find it surprising that the first time I hear about the post prime appearance of the holes and dents is on Homestars review. All you had to do was call me and we would do a post prime touchup. You don't have to touch the walls. In fact, I will contact you immediately and offer to do that for free. We include that service as part of the quote.
As for the price; let's be honest the DIY boarding was very poor. When Doug was on site doing the review, he requested that you install additional screws on most of the sheets. That didn't happen by the time we arrived to start the taping process.
What Doug was unable to see at the time of the site review for quoting the project, is that you had not installed any framing when you installed the drywall sheets. He could not know that until he arrived to start installing concrete fill to close up the large gaps. That's when he realized that there was no wood framing so many of the sheets had to come down, framing installed and reboard. Then we had to install the screws. Those are the costs that added up to the extra charge. I do not want to be confrontational but I had Doug stop the work and bring you down to the basement to show you what he had to do. You gave us a new $ cost as a result and we came in $350 under that upper limit. We were transparent about this adjustment Mohamed. The texture was always an optional cost.

For DIY handymen here is the rule; if the last wall stud or joist is further than 4" away from the end of the wall or ceiling to wall then wood must be installed (or steel) to make sure that the drywall does not flex away from the corner when pressure is applied to install tapes or mud. Otherwise the tapes will crack.

I am sorry that you are disappointed in the extra charges but the problem was hidden by the boarded walls and could not have been anticipated during the site review. I will be in touch today to make arrangements for me to send a taper to complete the post prime touchup

California Knock Down Ceiling Repair

We had a plumbing pipe break in our home, which caused leaking through our ceiling on the main floor. Bob at Glacier and his staff were great to work with. They did an excellent job patching up the cuts into the ceiling, and then finishing the texturing. You can’t tell where the cuts were made. They kept me informed of when they would be coming and the process involved with fixing the ceiling. The quality of the work done is exceptional and the price was excellent. I would highly recommend Glacier Drywall Systems.

Basement development

We were acting as our own general contractor with no prior knowledge. Bob was so helpful, knowledgeable, and supportive. Doug is wonderful at installation. The whole team made our drywall experience painless. I would recommend Glacier to anyone and would have them back for any future projects.

Fourth time using Glacier - excellent job as always

I've used Glacier Drywall for multiple renovations on my homes. This time, we were renovating our basement and installing new drywall. The Glacier team had the job done quickly and with great communication on when they would be at our house to work.

Bob is always great to deal with on the project management end, and Doug is probably the best drywaller I know. They do a great job!

Highly recommend the crew at Glacier, and I no doubt will be returning to them for our next drywall project.

Basement Suite Legalization

Bob and Doug have always been very accommodating when it comes to jobs around my place. I've used them on a number of occasions including drywalling and sealing in my furnace room a couple years ago. I recently applied to the city to legalize my basement suite and the inspector commended the work that was done originally. There were a few minor touch-ups and Bob graciously accommodated my request to comeback and complete this work at no charge. To approve, there were a couple other minor drywall and mudding tasks needed for approval. Everything was done in a few hours and the suite was approved with credit to Glacier for the work from the safety inspector. I'll always reach out to Glacier for any jobs and have no problem referring them to friends/family.

Hi Tito,
Hope you're doing well in 2021 and staying safe.
Thank-you sir for your review. Greatly appreciated.
Keep in mind that no job is too small; door knob thru drywall (you would be shocked how often we do this repair), poly-b changeovers, sink and toilet water leaks to ceilings below, single room renovations; no job too small.
Take care sir and good to hear from you.

Skim coating, drywall repairs

We recently hired a painting comapy (I wont go into details) for a wallpaper removal project in our new to us home. We ended up having to stop the work because the progress was going in the wrong direction. Long story short, they left us in a place where our walls were in worse condition than when they started and had no clue how to fix the issues.

Glacier Drywall was recommeneded to us from a large reputable renovation company in Calgary. The guys from Glacier Drywall came to do a quote and knew exacty what needed to be done to fix the issues. (Skim coating the entire work area to fix the previous guys exremely poor mudding job and fixing blistering occuring in our walls from the improper wallpaper removal technique of the previous guys) They were proffesional and left our walls in near perfect condition. Not to mention they were under a little pressure because my wife was over 8 months pregnant at the time.

I would not hesitate to recommend Glacier Drywall for your next project, large or small, they have the skills to do the job.

Addition and Kitchen Drywall

We had drywall done on an addition and part of existing house. Bob was very understanding and helpful and very service oriented--he was so nice! Doug, the crew-chief, was the best, worked super hard and made sure things got done. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied and everyone including a retired drywall friend of ours said they did a fantastic job. Definitely recommend them!!
