Garage Floor re-do

We contacted Dylan from Freehold about ripping out our garage floor slab and re pouring it properly. Besides the numerous cracks, the slope is horrendous - with melted snow water reaching to the back, sides and corners of the garage. A few large pools of water as well. This is a new house and we are currently embroiled in legal matters with our builder and we wanted an expert opinion. We got one. Dylan is a professional in the truest sense of the word. We haven't been able to go forward with this project as of yet due to the aforementioned legal proceedings, but most likely will in short time. In any event, I cannot overstate how pleasant and reassuring it has been to work with a consummate professional. A non-rushed visit to the house, quick responses to inquiries, guaranteed estimate. At this stage I cannot comment on anything besides this preliminary interaction, but I could not have more confidence in Freehold's ability to get this job done the right way. After the horrible experiences with our builder, Freehold showed us the other side of the coin.
UPDATE May 2014: Freehold came back in early spring, ripped out the slab, prepped and poured a new one in a matter of days. Jordan also did some window trim, baseboard and painting to make our sad and "old" 2012 completed garage the new look it should have had when we moved in. Water doesn't pool and slopes right to the doors.
Thanks again guys!

Wow Matthew! These sites go a long way towards future customers touching base with us for their concrete needs. Considering we haven't done any work for you, we can't thank you enough for this thoughtful and uncalledfor review. Here's hoping your builder stands behind his word. If not, we'll see you in 2014. Thanks Matthew

Side walk and pad

I found Freehold on homestars and sent them an email I got a response back quite quickly by phone, the interesting thing was my wife was trying to get hold of them on a friends recommendation but was not having as much luck so I was a little weary.

After talking to Dylan and having him come out for a quote I was no longer weary, he was very professional and knowledgeable.

I needed work done to my house to allow me to have wheelchair access and with my procrastination I was pushing it.

Dylan was able to give me a good quote and timeline to get the work done.

Pro's
- Dylan kept in contact with me while the work was being done by his great team
- showed up and had the work done when he said it would be done
- final product looks great I cant wait until next year to get some more work done by him, even my wife is super impressed(that alone is amazing)

Con's
-My dog walked on the freshly poured pad in the back so its not as awesome looking as the side walk in the front now, but that has nothing to do with Dylan's team it my fault but the only con I can think of.

If you can get Dylan's team out to do your work for you, you will not be disappointed.

So cool Brian! Thanks a lot for the review. When we did get in touch with each other there was no way our team was going to let you go though a winter in a new house without wheelchair access!

All the best and we look forward to completing more for you next season.

Sincerely,

Dylan Murray

Driveway, walkway and patio

After meeting Dylan at the Calgary Home Show, he promptly attended our home for a consultation. He provided a variety of options and recommendations followed by a thorough estimate. The work was recently completed and we are thrilled with the result. Dylan and his crew of hardworking, courteous, and knowledgeable professionals delivered everything that was promised and more. We were very impressed with Dylan's attention to detail on all aspects of the project. The entire crew is to be commended for a job very well done. We have had numerous complements and inquiries about the quality contractor. Freehold Construction is highly recommended.

Stamped concrete patio

I met Dylan in May of 2013 to look at creating a sidewalk and stamped patio. Immediately I was impressed by his vision and previous work. Due to weather related delays (concrete does not like rain) I finally have a great outdoor space that was created by artisans. The colors are deep and vivid and the comments I have received been "wow", "amazing", and "awesome". Dylan and his crew stamped a beautiful compass rose and expertly applied custom stain to enhance the natural pigments of the concrete It will be the centerpiece of my yard for years to come!!

Residential concrete project

We contacted Freehold Construction with regard to a getting our aggregate walkway repaired. Dylan met with us promptly after first contact and walked us through our options while listening to our concerns with regard to what specific pieces of aggregate needed replacing and how the project would be tackled. We received an estimate within two days which clearly itemized all materials and costs. We were confident in awarding Freehold the work we needed done and were not disappointed on any level. The work was completed in the time frame promised and the results were outstanding. Exceptional service by a truly professional company from start to finish!

New driveway pad

I went to the Calgary Home & Garden Show this past March 2013 and met Dylan at his display booth. I immediately went to his portfolio display and saw that Dylan was capable of esthetically pleasing work. You could also tell that his work was of a high quality given some of the testimonials. I can tell that I was not disappointed. From the first contact to the final settlement Dylan and his crew were totally professional and engaged to make sure the work was done right and on a timely basis. It was a real pleasure to deal with someone who is passionate about what he does and the effort put towards customer satisfaction. I would wholeheartedly endorse Dylan Murray and his company Freehold Construction Inc. for your concrete needs.

New Driveway

I hired this company purely based on the confidence and knowledge of Dylan the owner. He was fantastic from day 1. He was honest and provided all sorts of options for us. He was patient and understanding and 100% professional. We did encounter a couple of bumps but Dylan ensured that we remained happy and did not ask for payment until the job was 100% complete. Would recommend Freehold to anyone. I've had a lot of bad trades over the years, Dylan / Freehold really opened my eyes to what a good contractor is!

So nice of you Catherine!

You and Marc were so understanding about the small damage to the eves during the original driveway removal. It's great to do work for great people. When issues occur it's a simple conversation about how we are going to make it right.

You have changed the look of your home, enjoy it for years to come!

Coloured Patio

I wanted to pour a patio last year and wasn't sure exactly what options I had. After contacting Freehold, Dylan and his team came by and provided me with numerous options. What I really appreciated was that he recommended specific solutions for my area. These were not the most expensive either! Little things that makes a big difference. For example to put a darker tint into the concrete so that it would stay warmer after sunset so that I can enjoy the patio into spring and fall. Overall very professional and accommodating! Good luck Dylan, your business will be very successful based on the service I received! Thanks again!

Stamped concrete patio

In 2008, Freehold Construction built a gorgeous stamped and coloured concrete patio for our backyard. Dylan was very professional and guided us through a number of texture choices and we got to specify which colour we wanted from endless options. Our patio still looks great and we have never regretted tearing off our small wood deck to make the switch to concrete. It is beautiful and everyone who sees it loves it. I would highly recommend Freehold Construction. Dylan is very skilled and the service from the estimate to the finished product was second to none. Thanks!

Stamped concrete patio & deck

Of the 3 concrete companies we contacted, Freehold was the only one to show up on time for the estimate. We chose Freehold because they were able to provide detailed information on our project, had many pictures from past jobs as well as excellent references. We put in an 800 sq. ft. Stamped concrete patio and deck. Dylan sub contracted the deck to an excellent builder who work with us both to achieve an excellent end result.
Freehold used some pretty heavy equipment to complete the job,
we were very concerned about some tight spaces and potential damage to the existing grounds. On completion of the project you would never have know Dylan and his crew had been there, everything was restored to new and we now have an incredible deck and patio that has been the site of many family barbecues and parties.
