Basement Development Project

Bob and his team did a great job in developing our basement. We added small custom elements to the project and the team accomplished them all really well. Excellent communication, issue resolution and stuck to all timelines. Superb.

One of my greatest pleasures is meeting new folks in Calgary. Our oil and gas friends are having a very tough time but I am always appreciative of the opportunity to work with really nice people.
Thank-you for making it a pleasure to work in your home.

Removal of popcorn ceilings

They did an excellent job. Our ceilings are so smooth and look great! I would absolutely use them again and will recommend them to anyone that needs drywall work.

Basement Ren

I had Glacier board, tape, and mud my basement. They also did the framing in my basement stairwell, which I was not capable of doing.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the work they did. There were many small corners, and minor details that would have taken me forever to do.

If I were to give any criticism, it would be on the scheduling. Due to other projects they had in the go, sometimes they would have to reschedule their visits. But in the end, the most important thing was the quality of their work, and I have no complaints there. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else, and would use them again for future projects.

Hi Jonah,
I totally agree with you. We had some illness on the team during the time we were slated to complete your basement. As a result we had to adjust our schedule daily, often on the fly to try to share the misery of the problem so that it would not be overwhelmingly frustrated for just one client. So thank-you for your comments and know that we try very hard to avoid these kind of last minute notifications. We respect how frustrating it can be when you are tied up waiting for someone and can't get on with the important items on your schedule till they arrive. We get that and try really hard to avoid it. We have excellent backup plans built into our systems to avoid that. Unfortunately, illness and injury are the hardest issues to plan for as we receive no notice. We also understand that as soon as we become aware of illness and injury, it is our responsibility to immediate notify our customers so that they can get on with their day.

Again, thank-you and please do not hesitate to call for assistance even if it is the minorest of drywall needs.

Sincerely,

Bob Zimmerman

Basement Drywalling and Ceiling Texturing

Overall we had an excellent experience with Glacier drywall and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for drywall installation. Bob and team had the best price of the companies that quoted and they delivered an excellent product. I held off writing this review until I had primed the walls, and installed some electrical fixtures (eg. pot lights). Still no complaints with the finished product.

Ideally I would have liked to give a 9.5/10 but the system only allows 9 or 10. The reason for the minor deduction was that scheduling and communication during the job could have been better. Nothing major, just minor inconveniences with people / material either being scheduled last minute, or no shows and we weren't notified until hours after the missed time slot. Glacier was juggling multiple jobs, so I understand, but communication/notification could have been more timely.

Again, I want to emphasize that we're very happy with the overall product and experience and will (and have already) recommended Glacier to others.

Hi Dave,

Thank-you for your comments.
How true is the old saying "the devil is in the details".
We do work very hard to try and provide notification so that clients are not sitting around waiting for us, or worse yet, took a holiday day from work and God forbid we can't show that day. I tell the guys that the second you know that the day isn't working out as planned; immediately stop and call the next clients or tell me and I will stop what I am doing and make the call.
We did struggle a bit with the notifications on your project and so thank-you for the review. Your comments are appreciated.

thank-you,

Bob

Mud, finish drywall to paint ready, mud & finish ceiling with knock down

Hired Glacier after a terrible experience with another company. These guys came in and were appalled at the horrible finish by the previous company (who should not be finishing drywall). Bob and Dave were great, their team was efficient, quick, clean and very pleasant to work with. They fixed the previous mess and then completed two rooms which I wouldn’t let the other company touch. This all done within the week! The workmanship and quality was far superior! When I need more drywall finished, I’m definitely hiring these guys again!

Thank-you for giving us the opportunity to restore some positive reputation back into our industry. It has to be very difficult for you to know how to choose another company after such a bad experience.
Hopefully, folks with similar experiences to your own, will see this posting and know there are companies who will fix things.
This review is a great service to your fellow homeowners.

thank-you,

Bob

patch hole on wall

Excellent/fast service. They came to patch a 10x9 inches hole on the hallway wall. I appreciated they didnt mind a small job/were able to come one day after I called. The repair was professionally done by Doug. Highly recommended Glacier drywall.

Your timing was perfect because we were scheduled to be working the following day at a project within 5 minutes from your home. So we were able to group them together since it was a small job.
Doug was pleased to use the new battery operated Dewalt strip nailer on your door trim. I won that gun for my recommendation to Contractors Magazine contest. Once every two months they issue a "what would you do if it was you" challenge and a panel votes on their favorite response. My response won the Jan/Feb contest and that's the finishing nail gun Doug was using.
If you have any drywall issues, or your fellow condo neighbors, feel free to give them our ph #.
We take all drywall projects; big and small.

thank-you for your review.

new ceiling, basement drywall, patches

Bob was great with his estimate and suggestions in order to make sure that we received the outcome that we wanted. Doug was excellent and worked with his crew to ensure the results were ideal. the basement reno is absolutely lovely and we are very well pleased. So much so that when we needed some patches dome as well as some sanding to prep the remainder of our house for painting, we asked them to come back. And they did. They fit us in around their other work even though it was a very small job. Thank you again. We highly recommend Bob, Doug and their crew.

Complete strip down and re-texturing to knock down on two floors.

My first involvement with Glacier drywall was the estimate by Mr. Doug Hood. I found him informative and knowledgable as to the different stages that would be involved in the work and repairs required after the electricians completed their work. I also found Mr. Bob Zimmerman to be knowledgable and could qualify the added costs based on the quality of products and workmanship by his company compared to other estimates. Ultimately all employees were courteous in addressing any questions and respectful of our home. We are extremely happy with the end result and the honesty and integrity of their team made it a total quality experience.

Basement Renovation

Bob and the talented crew at Glacier did a superb job drywalling our basement, and texturing the ceiling.

The quotation process was very fast & professional, pricing was competitive, and Bob was responsive and flexible to changes as our plan evolved.

Throughout the boarding and finishing process, the team of professionals in our home was always courteous. They helped us make informed decisions when required, and worked quickly and efficiently. They left the workspace clean, and ready for the next trade.

The finished product, including a beautifully textured ceiling is something we're excited and proud to show off to guests in our home.

I would not hesitate to refer family or friends to Glacier Drywall.

Thank-you for your kind words Jamie.

Enjoy your new basement and when you prime, if you see anything at all that you want touched up, let me know. I'll send one of the guys over to touch it up the next day.

Have a great spring,

Bob
