Victor and company rebuilt old concrete stairs and sidewalk

Old concrete slabs removed, 4 ft sidewalk built across front of house, along side and a few meters at back of house to increase access with wheelchair or support helper. Front stairs reconstructed, solid handrails installed. Top quality work, we will definitely be doing more projects with this company. Already requested quote for rear patio next year. Special thanks to the workers Malik and Jerry for respectful, professional work.

Install metal

I was looking in getting the roof single replaced. While at the cottage I received a call from Permanent Building Product asking if I was looking for an renovation. I mention that I was looking to get the cottage shingles replaced. She then set up an appointment with Brian co owner of Permanent Building Products. I meet up with Brian around May 15th 2022 and he provided me a cost to do the roof in singles and in metal. At that time my wife and I were given a couple of days to see which roofing material we were going to use. We meet up with Brian at my home on May 22 2022 and at that time sign a contact had had to provide a deposit of $1690. I was told he would have someone there in the next couple of days to do the measurements. On July 13th I received a call from Gary another co owner of Permanent Building Products telling that they would not be able to do my roof in steel as I have moss on my roof. He said that he had sent three different roofer up to the cottage and all refused to do the roof. You would think that if there was a problem it wouldnt take two months to communicate this to a customer. I had another roofer who could of had my roof done this year but choose to use Permanent Building Products as the other company does not do metal roofs. Know that it is middle of July my roofs will not be repaired. Co owner Brian does not provide his cell phone number and even when you leave a message does not even return calls. During conversation with Gary yesterday he said the could do shingles at the price they estimated. I received an email this morning real professional stating they would not be doing this either. I called Gary at his office he mentioned that he would send me a cheque for my deposit and said he was sorry but he wasnt going to do the job and lose money. They provided me the estimate. Stay clear as you can tell they really wanted my business . My roofs on my three building were re shingled by a roofer locally who has been in business for 40 years. No damage was noted on any of the building. Dont know who they sent up to look even if they ever did. I guess it tells you deal with a roofing company not a general contractor who sign a legal contact is provided a deposit back out of it after holding the deposit for a month.

Our company is in business for over 55 years! We sent THREE different crews on an over 200km round trip with fuel at $8 a gallon at no charge to this client in an effort to honour our contract and feel comfortable with a full guarantee and proper install. All three reported that the roof is almost 20 years old, covered in moss and the plywood is rotten. We would never install strapping and a metal roof on that substrate! Please understand we are providing a full refund and underwent several costs in an effort to get this done. Our sales manager cannot go on the roof to fully inspect for insurance and safety reasons. We should get a 10/10 for effort, pride in work and integrity!

Window Installation (Main Floor)

We got the windows done for our main floor and they did a great job. We dealt with Brandon and he was very helpful through the process. Overall, the service was great and I would highly recommend reaching out to Brandon if you are considering any renovations. Our windows look fantastic!

Basement wall waterproofing

The work was done on time and the work crew was well organized and kept me appraised of their progress. They cleaned up the site and restored everything to its original state. There is no water seeping into the basement anymore.

Thank you for the review Bill. One big question though. If you say we were very friendly and we did a very good job for you and did everything we said we would do, why only an 8 rating out of 10. We couldn't have done better. Les

Roof + Waterproofing + Eavestroughs + Interlocking patio

The workers were very professional. They explained all the work that were doing on my house to me. They cleaned up every day. Les who coordinated everything was very easy to deal with and i was very comfortable that all of the work would be done properly. They didn’t cut any corners. Everything that they said they would do they did. I would highly recommend Permanent Building Products

Waterproofing side and Eavestrough upgrades

Les and his team knew what needed to happen to help solve my water leaking problem and upgrade my eavestroughs. Each job took about half a day to complete and I am very happy with the results. I look forward to reaching out to Permanent Building Products for their expertise and future work.

landscape, awning and gutter+leaf guard replacement

We needed some tall tree trimming, stump removal and sod installation in our frontward. Les did a great job coordinating all the work. Everything was done in time and to our expectations.
Les also took care of a new awning installation to our front door, that looks really nice and structural solid. The job was done in time, and neat.
Les also arranged for our gutter replacement and leaf guard installation.

We are very satisfied in the way that Les coordinates all the work, hires competent people, and is always on site to properly explain to the constructors the job that we want to be done and to check that everything is properly performed. All garbage was removed and all the job done in time.
It is really a piece of mind working with him, since once we singed the contract, he takes care of everything.

Reliable, Reasonable and Quality Workmanship!

I have used this company for 2 projects (and counting). They rebuilt my front porch, with railings, new stonework and new poured walkway. A beautiful job, by experienced workers who knew their stuff. Now, I have had eavestroughs and siding replaced and again, such a professional job. They're fast, they don't cut corners, and every detail was addressed. No problems during or after. I highly recommend.
