August 2020: Bwise Contractors 2012 Ltd. advises that homeowner’s cast iron pipe removal to the City line is being removed from the scope of work to offset the property concrete removal costs and stay on budget (homeowners agree to).
September 2020: Bwise Contractors 2012 Ltd. advises homeowners that they need to provide pre-payment in the amount of $56,015.81 (project appears to be less than 30% complete - as per the contract this progress draw is scheduled at 50% - 75% complete). Homeowners request consult on itemized benchmarks in writing from Bwise Contractors 2012 Ltd. and that information was not provided.
September 2020: Bwise Contractors 2012 Ltd. revises the previous September request and requests that homeowners sign off on an increased final invoice with the lender, thereby advancing the full contract amount and increasing the homeowner’s loan amount with the lender. Homeowners did not comply with this request.

The homeowners repeatedly request the information related to the increase in writing for review with a professional entity and Bwise does not oblige to those requests.
October 2020: Bwise Contractors 2012 Ltd directs removal of the construction/security fencing, tools, equipment and trades on our property without providing any formal notice.

In total, Bwise Contractors 2012 Ltd has received $86,015.81 (approximately 64% of the total contract amount at less than 30% project completion).
Avoid this company. They did not fulfill their contract. They did not get the correct permits. They tried to blame the City of Edmonton for permits!!! Told me everything was passed (they were responsible for all permits re our contract) and this was NOT TRUE!!!! I could not believe anything they said. Run fast from these shysters. Cost me $20,000 to fix their terrible work. I was lucky to find a company that would take on someone else's problems!
This contractor should not be trusted. The sales tactics were pushy and the final product did not meet the promises by the company. The room leaked 3 months after completion and continues to leak now. The company did send someone to attempt to repair the shoddy workmanship but they couldn't figure out why it leaks don't seem to care that their final product continues to have problems. Yet they are the company that designed and constructed the 3 season room. The company will not return my calls nor will they send someone to fix the problem. They were, however, quick to remind me if a payment was due. Save your money and time, find another contractor.
Big mistake. B-Wise contractors damaged our roof while adding an architectural feature around the top of our building. The contract clearly stated that the roof should not be affected in any way. Screws were driven through a perfectly good roofing membrane around the entire perimeter of the roof plus the structural wood holding the architectural feature was left unprotected. The problems were hidden behind flashing (water freely flowed to the wood) and we didn’t become aware of it until after all B-Wise work was paid for. B-Wise refused to repair the problems. We were forced to bring in a roofer to properly seal it and have spent over $20,000 so far on repairs. I’ve been working with contractors for well over 30 years and have never submitted a formal complaint until now. In this case I felt obligated to warn others.
This claim has no merit.
We were up there numerous occasions to find out why there was ice damping on one scupper and downspout in the middle of winter, they have an additional 4 other scuppers on that roof that this was not happening. We had to wait for the weather to melt the ice around that area to inspect. While we were there we noticed that there was thawing around the stack which comes from the boiler room below which was apr 6 ft away from the scupper, also we inspected the roof assembly and found that there was no insulation on the roof allowing the heat to rise through and melt the snow especially around the exhaust stack from the boiler room.
Once the snow and ice melted we went back to inspect the area of concern found that the roofing membrane around the stack was lifting allowing water to penetrate and the scupper was not properly sealed once again allowing the water to penetrate the building.
What snow melts in the middle of winter when it is minus 30 to 40 degrees unless there is heat loss, also the other scuppers were not affected with this issue the other scuppers had no heat stack or boiler in the area to melt the snow.
Due to the heat loss in that area it caused the snow to melt and the water would go to the scupper once it got to the scupper and downspout it would freeze and water would back up and flow till it freezes.
The roofer he had give him a report never addressed the ice damming issue it was a quote to repair the screws that were used, these screws were covered by a membrane and capping which would not allow any damage to the area.
