Large deck and stone patio

Start to finish in under a week, terrific results. We love our new deck and patio. It feels like we are living on a resort. Zen listened to our ideas and crafted a plan that tailored our deck to our needs.

Front and backyard garden deep edging

We have a large front and back garden...they deep edged the front VERY neat and placed new mulch...looks fantastic. In the back they had to remove stone edging and cut the deep edge and mulch....neat and now has a 'wow' factor.
The guys were quiet, polite and worked hard all day..we were very pleased.

Interlocking bricks

Excellent group of people to work with. All questions were asked and answered professionally. Work site was always clean and organized. Streets were never blocked to cause neighbourhood inconvenience.
Thanks

Finished our Deck

Zen came in to finish off a deck project for us. They were very professional and did an amazing job. We are very happy with the result. Only complaint would be billing issue where they forgot to bill me for some items that they bought until after the project was finished.

Company Response

Hey there Chris,

Thanks for the feed back! I do agree with you regarding the invoicing issue. With the nature of your project and us coming in half way to finish the job up it makes it hard for us to give a fair price. Had we of started the job from the get go it would be very easy for me to give a fair price using our regular pricing for decks. Hourly jobs are a lot more work to keep organized, unfortunately some materials were missed until credit card statements came in and we realized we had missed some of your costs. We greatly appreciate you working with us after the fact to complete the payments. We hope your deck gets you guys outside and enjoying the sun for years to come! Give us a call if you need any more help! Cheers

Landscaping and patio

From the first phone call Josh and his team have been wonderful to work with. I explained to Josh exactly what I was goal was for my landscaping job and my new back patio. The Zen designers and crew came through with making that a reality. I would highly recommend Zen Construction.

Full garden renovation, including deck & patio

Josh and his crew were professional, reliable and really great to work with. The garden design was worked on through the winter until we were happy with the plan. Although rain delayed the start, Josh kept us informed of the timelines and regularly updated us on progress. We made a few changes along the way as the work unfolded, which Josh took in his stride and was happy to accommodate. The finished product looks fantastic and we have an outdoor space that feels welcoming and provides a respite from our busy lives. Thanks to the team for more than meeting our expectations!

Thank you for this review. Yes, Spring and weather can create delays in our anticipated start times, but we try our best to keep our clients informed; glad we were able to uphold this standard. We are extremely pleased that we were able to create that Zen space for you and your family to escape to. I will pass along thanks to the crews and our designer for beating your expectations. Here's to many more memories made in your updated outdoor space!

Major Structural Repair for Deck

The main structural beam for the second floor deck was failing. I was very concerned about finding a company that would be interested in taking on the job especially given it was not a new deck build. Josh was very quick to reply and provided appropriate recommendations on what needed to be done. The job involved concrete work for a footing, steel fabrication and carpentry--not a typical deck job or simple.

His estimate came within 24 hours, was reasonable and he had a crew onsite in a matter of days.

The crew did a very good job. They were very careful when digging the post footing next to the house footings and kept the entire work area and driveway/sidewalk used for access clean the whole time. The work was done on schedule and the quality was even better than what I expected.

I am always a bit sceptical about online reviews and who the authors may be. However, I would be happy to be a reference for Josh at any time and can verify my review is legit and clearly the rest of the great reviews for Josh and his crew are as well.

Interlock patio walkway

I couldn't have asked for a better company to deal with! From the first site visit whe Josh came out to discuss and make some recommendation right up to the time the job ended, Zen have been a phenomenal company to deal with!

Josh drew up a quote on the spot and gave us a comple of different options with respect to stone to use for the job. He, and his office team, were in constant communication with us right up until the job started. The team that came out to perform the job was second to none! The did great work, were very meticulous, answered questions whenever we had them, and asides from the amazing job the did, I would never have known they were here (that's how clean the job site was afterwards).

I will definitely be recommending Zen to a one who asks and feel confident knowing they'll get the exact same experience! Thanks again guys, you were amazing to deal with!
