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 did an outstanding job installing laminate flooring for us. They professional and courteous.
The flooring was was installed to perfection they insured that every detail was done properly.
Time was also of the essence for and they did everything in their power to complete it on time and they did!
We were extremely satisfied with their work.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 403-620-3351 and we will respond immideate to your inquiry. Again, we are very sorry.
