Blackstone provided excellent service and a quality installation of insulation, poly, drywall, mudding and taping for my detached garage. They scheduled a time with me to do a complete walkthrough of the garage taking measurements, asking questions and highlighting things I didn't even think about. For instance they pointed out that the one side of my garage that was already dry walled didn't have insulation behind it. They also recommended that I use some left over drywall sheets I had off to the side to save on cost. They provided a detailed breakdown of labour and materials within their quote along with a small management fee to oversee the work, everything was up front, no hidden costs. Their prices on labour and materials were very good, even with the small management fee.
Communication was the best I've ever experienced working with other trades and suppliers. They responded quickly via phone calls, emails and text messages anytime I had a question. They follow a professional change management process using change request documents. This worked really well when I decided I wanted to add mudding and taping after I had signed the original scope of work. I always felt that both parties (Myself and Blackstone) knew exactly what was in scope and what the end cost would be. They also took pictures of their work at each stage of the project, which I can now reference in the future in case I want to see where the wiring, venting and other details are behind the drywall.
I could go on and on but the bottom line is there are lots of contractors out there, some are great at quality but lack the management and communication and others are just not good at all. If you want a company that delivers great quality and provides excellent customer service then these are the guys for the job.
I used Trusted Pros to get some quotes on the job I wanted done. Blackstone met with me right away and figured out what I needed to do the job. They explained the costs in the quotes and what all would be involved. They did the job when they said it would and I paid them what they quoted. I would use them again and also recommend them.
The service provided by Blackstone Renovations was done in a timely and professional manner. At all times, they demonstrated respect for the governing by-laws of the city of Calgary and went beyond the "call of duty" in the securing of a very difficult fence post placement and its adjoining gate entrance.
What makes Blackstone Renovations so unique is the manner of engagement by their owner representative. Paul is a very social person, someone who remembers the names of people and addresses them as such. He loves to talk with customers and one is left with the impression that he wants to learn as much about you as a person as possible. Why? Because , he just likes people and he is a very honest person to deal with.
Most important to me is Blackstone's follow-up and readiness to correct any resultant problems that may be associated with their work. They are prompt in this regard and corrections are made without question and/or additional cost.
Excellent work on adding a new addition to a 100 year old house. A number of plumbing, electrical, structure and insulation issues also addressed. All the work was thorough, extremely well done and blends in beautifully with the original house. Paul worked with us to find the most cost effective solutions and was able to provide options for us to choose. Invoices are detailed and what you pay up front, during construction and at the end is worked out ahead of time. Small team so you have to wait at times for a call back or to fit in smaller projects. However the advantage of the small team is that all the crew are wonderful to work with - knowledgeable, respectful of your home and really take pride in their work. Subcontractors (eg. electrical and plumbing) they use are also excellent, fully licensed and work with the team on a regular basis.
