Alex did a superb job with our custom front door refinishing! We had numerous comments on how great our front door looks. All was done on time, and on budget. Alex also helped us with several other projects - every time he did a perfect job. We'd highly recommend Great Owl Renovations to anyone. Thank you very much, Alex!
I would give him more stars if I could :) We had Alex come in and build us a new deck for our backyard, and we LOVE IT! He was super friendly and most importantly knowledgeable. All of his work was super meticulous and beautiful. I’m working in construction and I was more than pleased with Alex work from beginning to end, not only with the visual aspects but the structure and quality. His knowledge and experience was evident right from our first meeting and during the estimate process. We got estimates from 4 different companies with a varied range of prices and while Alex was not most expensive nor the cheapest of the estimates we still decided to go with him because of his sense of knowledge and workmanship that was apparent right from the beginning and our gut instinct really paid off because I'm certain we couldn't have had a more perfect deck! I would recommend Alex to anyone I know. In fact I wouldn't even have to, I would just show them our deck and I'm sure they would agree. I am not easy to please so I myself am even surprised with how satisfied and delighted I am with Alex’s work! If I were planning another project I would use Alex again without a doubt. I honestly can say I have no complaints!
Thanks so much Alex, we can't wait to enjoy our deck :)
Thank you so much for your review! We are happy that you like our work and will be very glad to work with you in the future.
Great Owl Renovations team.
Alex was quick to respond to our initial inquiry, showed up on site for quote on time, provided an expedient quote that was reasonable, had excellent, professional and timely communication on progress, provided professional documentation and receipts, did an excellent install that met our expectations and left the site clean and tidy. No concerns and would recommend to others.
Great own renovations did exceptional work in my suite in Calgary. I own the property as a rental unit and do not live in the city. Great owl was able to coordinate the work easily and complete it in a timely and efficient manor. I found them easy to work with and they did not require any supervision.
I visited the property afterwards to see the finished product of the fully replaced countertops. They did a fantastic job, the cuts were seamless and the securement was well handled. This was all done for a price that was almost $400 less than the next lowest quote.
There was a bit of sawdust and debris left over after the work, but nothing serious, I had cleaners come in to assist with the final wipe down.
I would recommend Great Owl for any project and plan on using them in the future.
Great Owl has done numerous jobs for our condominium building for over the past 5 years. Alex and his team have been reliable and the work has always been completed to our satisfaction. They have done odd jobs here and there, and have also done major renovations and restoration projects for both the building, and individual units. Always willing to work with us in finding solutions to leaks, installations and other things that come up throughout the year. More than willing to recommend him to anyone for any project!
My basement was flooded with sewage water due to city sewage system back up. We had to remove the carpet and prevent molding. Great Owl Renovations was one of the three potential candidates and we decided to go with them because Alexey convinced me with his expertise and knowledge about what he is doing. Their service is also very personalized unlike some other companies that just treat you like another random guy in their business. We liked the renovated basement. My wife and I are happy and strongly recommend Great Owl Renovations team to anybody who is about to do their reno project.

Great Owl Renovations owners.
Never ever pay him the full amont before he finishes the job!!!
"Alex" the owner of this business is not a reliable person and can not keep his words. He promissed us that he will finish our basement in a month during December but in the middle of the job he and his wife took 2 weeks vacation when our house was a mess.
He kept asking me for the money every time he showed up and I trusted him and paid. We get to the point that I paid him the full amount of the contract before he finished the mudding, (I wanted to paint the walls myself). Then he didn't sow up to finish the plumbing and mudding and I had to hire someone else.
I am not recomending this guy at all.
Hello Mr. Alireza Samidi,
Thank you for your review. It came as a big surprise for us as we finished your job 3 ( three) years ago and never heard from you in these 3 years. Sorry to hear now that you are unhappy.
We provided more than 8 revised estimates for this one job in your basement due to the extra work to be added all the time to the original estimate. All extra work means that the completion date needs to be extended and it is written in our contract. In our estimate and contract only rough in plumbing was included, not finishing as you said that you will do the finishing by yourself to save money. This is exactly what we did. We also finished the mudding on the walls. The final finishing on the mudding is usually done by the painter after the primer or first coat of paint. You decided to paint by yourself.
The project took longer also due to the reason that were out if Calgary a lot due to your job and we had to wait for you to finish your part of the project. At the beginning of the project we informed you that our trades do not work on weekends and during X-mas. We finished our work and this is why you paid us in full and we thank you for that. At that time you had no concerns or questions.
We are very sorry that you are unhappy now after 3 years of the project completion and we would like to know what happened in this 3 years after the project?
In regards to the payment schedule- it is written in our estimate and contract that we have prepaid contractors license and this is why we asked for payment for materials and part of the labour in advance, especially for extra work and you agreed to it and had no problems paying. Our company has BBB ethics award for doing business without complains for 10 years with BBB and we would like to resolve the problem that caused you to leave this negative feedback after so many years.
Please write to us at [email protected] or call at 403-620-3351 and we will respond immideate to your inquiry. Again, we are very sorry.

Great Owl renovated a kitchen for us in a condo. They added cupbords and used IKEA base cabinets which I was concerned about but not anymore. The cupboards are perfectly matched and are solid. They installed tile floor, backsplash and a quartz counter. al are beautifully done. The team was timely, courteous and cleaned up everyday. We re able to stay in the condo most of the time. We got a new fridge and it was 1/4 in too big for the space. Alex and the team made it work...changed the drywall from 1/2 in to 1/4 in and voila...it fit! they even painted!!! We even made a couple changes along the way and came in on budget!
Overall this was a great reno and we love the space.
Highly recommend these guys.
