We contracted James to do a complete overhaul of a rental cottage we purchased in Niagara on the Lake. After interviewing other contractors - we felt that James was the perfect choice for our project. Even at the qualification stage; he showed more interest and spent more time than the others evaluating the scope of requirements. He offered constructive and in many cases cost saving options to complete the work. He kept in constant communication throughout the job and his work was meticulous. He was accommodating, flexible and an absolute pleasure to work with.
He turned our little "diamond in the rough" into a real gem!
Several of our guests have provided positive feed back on how beautiful the place looks.
Thank you James
I have never meet James prior to my hiring him. I found James Fram very honest with his pricing and work ethic. James was very acceptable to changes as the work went along and was very meticulous with all his work. My project lasted for 10 weeks to complete and James was at our door step everyday to get the job done putting in a full days work. I'm very happy with the work that was done and would recommend Fram construction for any future projects.
We have used Fram Construction on numerous occasions and have always been pleased with the results. Jamie is reliable and trustworthy. Jamie is a perfectionist, he pays great attention to detail. Jamie is also creative and has made design recommendations. We recommended him to our neighbours, he renovated their kitchen, retiled floors and installed hardwood, they were also extremely pleased with the quality of his work.
We were absolutely delighted with Fram, and the care they took to lay stone on our porch. So much so that we hired them for the basement, and then later our master bath.
Super conscientious, courteous, and trustworthy as well. Starts with a great vision, wonderful ideas, and even helped with colour choices. Firm construction, excellent materials, and an amazing eye for detail.
Quite the perfectionist!
May take a little longer than expected because of this detailing.
Would hire again in a flash!!!
