FULL HOUSE RENO in Black Diamond, Alberta.
Greg is going to laugh at my review because as he is a man of few words, and I'm a gal of many......Buckle up, it's long. But worth it.
We have done many renovations on many houses, across many provinces and didn't realize that if you hire the right Contractor, who has a stellar crew, you can get exactly what you want, within a reasonable time frame, within (or just a tad above) your budget.
When we found our dream retirement home, we loved the awesome neighborhood and location, great bones and fabulous potential. We just needed the right contractor to deliver our vision.
We interviewed many renovation contractors, had quotes from 4 and the minute Greg walked into our house we knew he was the guy we wanted to tackle this job. He was friendly yet professional, jeans and tshirt kinda guy (big thumbs up from my husband here) and ON TIME.
After we explained our plans, he took photos and notes and even vetoed some immediate plans based on his knowledge of code and safety regs.
He said he'd send an estimate and off he went. At that point we said to each other, IF he send his estimate on time, he's our guy.
Sure enough the estimate came through exactly when he told us it would!
I'll note here that he also came highly recommended from a friend of mine.
His estimate came in, not the cheapest, not the most expensive, but as everyone knows, you get what you pay for.
So our project begins and I have a very tight timeline to get our whole house renovated within 4 months. Ready for Christmas.
He DELIVERED. The beer and baking might have helped?
We had our unfinished, no framing, bare concrete basement, developed fully with a full walk in shower bathroom. LVP flooring, pot lights and surround sound installed...plus a specialty beam installed and fabulous barn door into our storage room.
Once we saw how our basement project was running very smoothly, we decided to move forward with using Lifestyle Renovations for the rest of our house.
The photos speak for themselves.
The ideas that Greg had, (like the garbage and recycling pull out cupboard in our island OMG GET THAT!) were awesome adds.
We found old weathered wood locally and had the crew's carpenter Colin, add rustic shelves in our cocktail station, our fireplace mantle and our basement faux beam (too cool).
We are beyond thrilled and would recommend Greg to anyone wanting a quality renovation.
I'll add that every single day, the site was cleaned up and every day that they were scheduled to work, they showed up on time.
Lastly, I'd like to add that in hindsight I should have used Greg's painting crew as they painted our basement, and it's perfect.
Communication on every part of this project was very timely and our estimates were pretty much to the penny. I never had to wait even 24 hours to hear back from Greg.
Anything we added (nothing is free lol :), was discussed and approved on by both parties prior to the work.
Overall, Greg completed our full house renovation from end August 2021 to December 2021, and ready for our first Christmas in our new home. My review with photos is very late, only because our furniture took 3 times as long to arrive as our renovation took to complete.
So a huge thank you very much to Greg, and his crew Colin and Dawson for making what typically is a pretty stressful messy frustrating thing, pretty damn enjoyable. The end result is beyond our expectations.
