Where to start. We went with CARDEL in Ottawa after reading good reviews. We had read about their past stucco issues but were ensured that these were isolated issues that had since been resolved - APPARENTLY NOT! Having over 25 years experience in construction myself, I told them the stucco flashing was not done correctly. CARDEL kept saying it was "the new way" it's done now. I asked for proof from the manufacturer and it was never supplied. I start seeing stucco repairs being done in my neighbourhood. Fast forward to our 2nd year warranty inspection and they finally ADMIT there are issues. They offer me one time slot to fix SOME if it. I could not attend that day so they decided to cancel ALL stucco repairs! Along with numerous other issues (parging, hardwood, stairs, poor drywall, walls not square, etc.) I regret ever letting these lackies build me a house. I highly recommend you go with anyone else but CARDEL.
