In June of 2020 with all of the heavy rains, a hidden problem with our home became a major issue. The large upper deck, we learned did not have flashing and proper attachment to our home, resulting in water leaking into the lower wall of our walkout. Needless to say we were stressed! I interviewed no less than 8 contractors and settled on AR Reno Experts Ltd. Al, owner, had an eye for detail and truly explored the nature of the problem. He was/is an effective communicator and explained quite clearly what needed to be done. A concise quote was put together for us which we accepted. In early August work began. Al and his team came every consecutive day to work on our project to completion - a quality that can be rare theses days. He also took time to explain the steps in the process and how he would address each issue. In short, his team pulled away a 36 foot deck from the house, removed the lower half of the wall, replaced the wall, redid the siding, improved the electrical setup and blue-skinned the critical areas along above, behind and below the deck, which was attached with flashing and sloping complete. Then Al and his team rebuilt the deck floor, moved the deck frame back and re-installed the rails/glass as well. It was a massive project. Al hired skilled tradespeople for each part of the project. Aside from being honest, open and a fine communicator, Al stands by his work. He truly wants to solve the repair/renovation challenges. Payment plans were flexible upon which we agreed and we trusted Al completely. At the end of it all, we were more than happy with the result and felt safe again in our home. Thank you Al!

During a water leak event into our home, we were fortunate to have Andre and team determine the extent of the interior damage and help define the overall problem we had resulting from heavy rains in June. R1 was quick to remove wet materials, set up drying equipment and protect other items in the basement. Cleanup was excellent as was promptness to provide service a second time. In August, after house repair issues were addressed, R1 had Gustavo and Alex come to our home to do the restoration of the basement wall and ceiling. Their work was nothing short of excellent from drywalling, painting, installing trim, ceiling repainting and re-installation of flooring. Clean up was top notch as well. "Gus" and Alex were true gentlemen, and worked with an efficiency that certainly is not rivaled. All in all, R1 Calgary helped us in times of immediate crisis and then closed the project with excellent restoration. If you were to have similar damages to your home or apartment, we'd recommend R1 Calgary without hesitation. Thank you Andre and team, Gustavo, Alex, Dave and Michelle.
