Harman has been great kind and knowledgeable from start to finish, the project was done on time or fairly close to it! If there were any issues Harman was sure to correct them right away. We look forward to working with Harman in future projects.
I found Harman (ACUBE Const) to be polite and professional at all times throughout the build process, however I find what lets the company down is the level of workmanship provided by “some” of the sub contractors he opts to use. From beginning to the end of the project I felt corners were cut and some of the work was poorly executed.
The list of deficiencies was too long to list here but I have attached some photos of the work performed. The project was also originally estimated to take 4 months but took 9 before it was finished. E-mails, texts and phone calls were often ignored, I got the feeling this project was a filler in between other jobs, rarely did I see trades on site for a full week and often times didn’t stay full days to get work done. We didn’t get fixtures and fittings that were requested so you have to dot your “i’s” and cross your “t’s”. Before signing any contract, quotes are vague as are change orders. I would not recommend ACUBE Construction for any future project.
Much of what Harman says in his 2nd rebuttal is total and utter fabrication. He is fortunate that this isn’t in court where he would be under oath. I paid everything we agreed to and more, I still have all the paperwork for this job, I’d be quiet happy to post the quote with His signature on it and I would challenge him to provide change orders with my signature on them. There is no baseboard heating in the Bedroom extension, only in the garage and one in the crawl space. Harman protects his trades and not his customer, “Some” of the trades he uses are sloppy and do poor quality work and are unprofessional. The only time any money was held back was at the end because he did not address all deficiencies and we still didn’t have a garage door installed. The money held back was less than 5% of the total project.
Harman provided a quote for this project, as he should well know a quote is not the same as an estimate, a quote is an agreed price between two parties. An Estimate is an estimated price normally including a contingency for cost overruns.
Yes I made a few requests along the way, all of which I paid for.
I have been in this industry for over 15 years and during this time I have understand that there always few clients who can not be satisfied.
We originally quoted the job in Aug 2020 after that MR Graham was still working to get his permits We were awarded the job in end of May 2021 In regards to MR Graham mentioning that our Quote was vague I have an acknowledging text where he had mentioned that he will be going over the quote and condition to make sure everything is right before he awarded us the contract Also I know he had taken few other quotes because he did disclose this to me But not once he had mentioned any discontent or disagreement regarding the quote.
In regards to the change orders they were approved by the client prior to the work mentioned on them was carried out All change orders had clear price mentioned per item so there is no confusion. The simple reason for that is I would not carry out any additional work or change the scope of work without clients approval. This Discontent for this review has originated from the fact that the client had to pay more for his project after original quote price In Aug 2020. During the entire course on construction not once we ever had a disagreement or any dispute till the end where client ended up taking a discount close $8500 because they didn't want to pay. And again at that point we gave the client the discount without any issue to what they told us they cant pay for it, we also provided them all written warranties as needed.
In regards to the project the project was carried out by experienced trades who have been in working in the industry for over 10 years all our suppliers and vendors are big name companies. The list can be provided if needed. All work was overlooked by structural engineer's, city of Langley inspectors. All work was done as per the clients requirement & all products and finishing's used were approved by the client before installation.
There is list of things client added during the course of construction.
large window in the washroom, entire setup for home generator, change the structural to accommodate an extra large garage door from 2 single car garage door, custom built-in niche and bench in the master bath the list can go on.
In response to the delay there was no major delay as the client has mentioned, client was advised at signing that few things are getting delayed now because of supply chain issue and that is also affecting the prices. there was a delay from Truss company(B&B truss major supplier) because they were just swamped and back logged client new about it. client had personally contacted the supplier also.
There was a delay from window company(Starline windows major supplier)supplier chosen by the client. And the client was adamant on using Starline only Sales man personally told the client about the extended time coz of glass shortage. There is also email for references
We had the frame ready to for weeks but waiting for above items. Again I am not blaming the suppliers because All builders and contractors knew about shortage and supply chain issues and that information was delivered clearly to clients.
At the time when we were ready to pour of the foundation client came with the change for the garage door structure which then had to be reviewed and approved the structural engineers and drawings had to amended for new load bearings After that was done we accommodated the clients request.
The biggest time lapse happened on the new extra large custom garage door which was picked by the client personally with the required design features after I scheduled the meet between garage door contractor and the client The Door was order in October and came in March The garage door supplier is CLOPAY which is one of the largest garage door companies in North America. All this info was also conveyed client had moved into new extension in early December there was no delay on our side I don't agree with this review as we completed this professionally.
I have just hired Acube Constructions to put fence in front of my house and they it was done in no time.
This was the second time I hired this company and always a job well done. I will definitely hire them again if there is any chance in the future.
Was very good at answering questions and texts, as well as explaining the work that needed to be done and what had been done during the job. My only issue is that things weren’t exactly done to a “that looks great!” level. There was a significantly scratched area left on the ceiling and the crown moulding put in was left as it came without proper paint on it and quite fingerprint/ mark covered. The area around the dishwasher could also have used a little extra effort to cover up bolted in areas. All that said, the job was done and done for basically the quoted price and he was willing to do a smaller job when a lot of other contractors weren’t interested, as well as being able to start the job immediately and completing it in the discussed timeframe.
Harman Kahlon and the team he put together to manage our small project were great! I gave them a window of one week to start on a Monday and finish on a Friday and they stuck to that timeline and got everything done. Painters arrived 30 minutes early on the first day of the project!! All contractors arrived on time and cleaned up after themselves. Harman was great in explaining what was going on and keeping me up to date. He showed up every day to make sure things were going well and on schedule. Some paint touch ups were required. I feel the painters should have removed towel bars instead of taping them and painting around them as this is where paint was missed, but all in all, a very good job. A complicated broken closet door proved to be challenging, but we worked through it to get it into the best repair possible without ordering a new door. I am very pleased with the work the GNK team did. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Harman and GNK Construction.
It took me a while to login and put in this review for Harman of GNK Constructions
just to say I am 150% satisfied with the work done, the cost, completion speed and politeness of everyone.
I will totally recommend and give 5 star to a job well done.
Thank you Harman.
