Structural repair

Kirk and his crew came to our rescue when we discovered a serious structural problem with our home during a bathroom reno. Our existing contractor discovered an outer wall that should have been load bearing instead had studs that crumbled under minimal force (basically just pinching it lightly with fingers), and said that they could not fix this. Kirk showed up the day after, saw the problem, and set up shoring posts immediately. Thankfully, he was able to squeeze the 2-3 day structural fix into his crews schedule between two larger jobs, which then allowed my original bathroom contractor to resume their work.

Some of the things I appreciated about Kirk in particular was:
1. Clear written and verbal communication before, during, and after the project so that I knew how to best prepare, what was in scope and out of scope, and how things were going
2. Taking us step by step through working with the structural engineer.
3. Guidance and list of recommendations he provided once the project was completed
4. Recommendations and referrals for other unrelated things I found myself in need to fix in my home

Next time I need to do a reno or any job involving structural work, Kirk would be the first person Id reach out to.

Thanks for such a detailed review Josh! Although it wasn't under the best circumstances (emergency structural work) it was a pleasure working with you, and I think we can all sleep easy now that the repair is complete.

Here's a link to our Instagram Reel documenting the work if anyone is interested

Bathroom Renovation

As a designer, I am happy to recommend Allen GC for your home renovation projects. My clients would agree as well. Kirk and Jay are great with communication and managing their trades. From the initial consultation to the final walkthrough, every step of the project was handled with professionalism, expertise, and a keen eye for detail.

Not only did Allen GC complete the project on time, but they also managed to stay within the agreed-upon budget, which is a rarity in the construction industry. This level of transparency and commitment to their initial estimate was greatly appreciated and made the entire process stress-free.

Bathroom Renovation

Allen GC Inc. Gutted and Renovated my upstairs bathroom with the assistance of Farah Alt Design. Kirk and his team were punctual, kind and efficient. The work proceeded in an orderly fashion and the finishes were laser cut precise. I very much enjoyed the process and highly recommend Allen GC Inc. for anyone looking for a washroom that will bring you peace and serenity. Also, worth mentioning Kirk helped me push my car out of a snow drift at night in the cold. No joke!

backyard renovation

Kirk and his team did a major backyard renovation project for us, replacing all the wood fencing around the property and building and repairing a ground floor and a 3rd floor deck. Work was done quickly and professionally.

This is not the first time we used him. He also did a significant master bedroom in-ceiling HVAC and ceiling repair job. Fast, professional and most important in this particular case, clean work!

Whole Home Renovation

Kirk and the whole Allen GC team are FANTASTIC to work with! They were contracted to provide a facelift to our home, which included refinishing floors, rebuilding a deck, updating bathrooms and constructing a custom fireplace mantle.

Not only was it a pleasure to interact with the team, but they completed the project ON TIME and ON BUDGET!!

They are honest with their assessments and go out of their way to make the vision a reality. We wouldn't hesitate to hire them again for all of our future projects. Thank you for a great experience!

Optimized Efficiency & Professionalism

The team at Allen GC are everything a home owner and an engineer could ever wish for in a general contractor. Meticulous attention to detail, due diligence in every step, and a no-pressure friendly demeanor.

I witnessed the wonderful approach of Allen GC to shoring and replacing all ground floor load bearing walls with steel and LVL beams at my family's home. The work was done within 48 hours, the engineer had no comments but praise. Highly recommended quality of people and work ethic.

Primary bathroom, bedroom renovation

We have a home built in 1890 and wished to preserve and enhance its beauty and charm. We remained in the house throughout the project and they were respectful of our premises, privacy and endeavoured to confine the dust. They provided an up-front timetable with itemized estimates for our planned project and we discussed every deviation in a transparent and fair manner. There were (relatively minor) delays due to supply chain and pandemic issues, but very few surprises. All the GC team members and subcontractors did excellent work and they have transform a beautiful house to a masterpiece.
