Deck and Fence Repair

We used Glen and his team to shore up our back fence and replace a section of it, as well as make repairs to our back deck. Glen is a genuine pleasure to work with. In general I find getting a good general services contractor a nightmare, but Glen makes the whole process effortless and pleasant. In short he comes and does what he says he'll do with no surprises and no catches, and to top it all off often goes the extra mile to think of things you wouldn't. The work was done quickly, neatly and professionally with a strong eye to detail and problem solving. Glen is now our 100% go to guy for work around the house and I am busy spreading the word about his excellent services around our neighborhood. To sum up, a guy you can trust and rely on and a real pleasure to work with. Don't hesitate to call him!!!!!!

A Few Jobs at the Condo

Glen and his assistant Mark were at my condo today to do some light fixture replacement, plastering and painting. They were on time, worked hard and were extremely pleasant. Will definitely use them again.

Hanging floating shelves and repair to wall

I accidently damaged my wall while moving some furniture and I called Glen, he was able to accommodate me for the next day. We also needed some floating shelves hung up, so I asked Glen if he could do that too, and he said no problem. He was very patient while installing the floating shelves, and did a fantastic job of getting them up in the right spot. And with the wall, you can't even tell where the damage was. Definitely will call Glen again for anything in the future.

Tiling and grouting

I needed some word done in my washroom to replace missing and damaged tiles. I also had some grouting done and a new faucet was installed in a sink in my downstairs kitchenette.

Glen and his assistant did a great job with everything and I'm especially pleased with the look of the tiles. Glen also gave me a bit of advice on some minor work I will do myself so, all in all, it was a good experience and I'm totally satisfied with his services.

To do list

We had Glen back to help with our ever growing to do list of renovations.
He did plumbing in both of my bathrooms and changed the plugs through out my house.
He is very efficient and reliable and the price is fair for the work that is done.
We have used Glen in the past and always had a great experience and amazing work done by him.
We will use him again for all projects that need to be done in our house

Leaking pipes

Glen is amazing and efficient!! I came home from work and I noticed water leaking from the ceiling. I was in a panic!! I didn't know what to do. I called Glen, I used him a few years ago as well. I explained what happened and over the phone we were able to locate the shut off valve. Later that day he came by and fixed the issue... Thanks again for your great work Glen!!! The water damage would of been so much worse if we didn't find that valve...

Drywall and shower head installatiin

I cannot believe I was charged over $900. To have them install a hand held shower head and repair about 4 square feet of drywall. His helper spent most of his time outside smoking.

It's interesting how you have forgotten a few key points. You had us remove your washer and dryer from their pedestals in order to relocate them for your new ones. You asked us to go to Home Depot to purchase materials on your behalf. A new hand held Moen shower head, drywall, plaster, screws, framing material etc...
You have no idea what was involved in the framing of the bulk head as you were not there with us.
You make unfair accusations, in respect to my helper, as he would go outside to cut framing material and collect tools as needed.
We explained to you exactly what our charges would be before you hired us. You were charge $650.00 for labour, $250.00 for materials, totalling $900.00.
Keep in mind that we are a business not a charity.
Thank you for your business,
Glen .

Thorough and Reliable

Glen has helped me out with several things over the last few years. Floor and carpet repair, a leak behind a wall, replacing deck boards, wall patching, etc. He schedules times that are convenient, has knowledge and experience in all different areas, talks through the issues with you and recommends good and cost effective solutions. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thank you Glen!
