I had Ian over for my home inspection and he was super helpful and went beyond the basic inspection and taught me a lot of professional information about the home. Later on, I hired him here and there for my house renovation. He was always very quick on my call, he did my tree and concrete removal for a very reasonable charges and I was impressive and happy with the work.
We previously hired Mr. Derksen during our 17 year run in Edmonton as "In The Minds Eye Contracting" to provide us with professional design and drafting services as well as a building construction consultant. We found Mr. Derksen to be a real asset to our business with his background as a Inspector, he offered many informed ideas and directions to improve our client services. His design services were exemplary and very reasonable. We would heartily recommend him for any of construction requirements.
