I contacted Hartmans because I had previously seen their work and they were also highly recommended by a close friend who employed them. Bob was incredibly helpful and friendly and offered great advice and guidance from day one. They provided a fixed price quotation and covered all trades and they displayed great care at all times to help keep the stress levels and disruption to a minimum for me.
Their attention to design features and detail is superb and they quickly solved many previous issues I had in my kitchen area. Their workmanship, professionalism and straight forward honesty is greatly appreciated as I live on my own here. They also designed and constructed a beautiful feature ceiling complete with LED lighting and crown molding and all of this coupled with carefully installed quartz counters and new floor has given me a totally show home kitchen and dining area. My bathroom now has a custom built vanity and quartz counter with under mount sink and again everything is totally perfect and gorgeous My custom built kitchen basically cost me little more than an Ikea kitchen and the saving I received on the counters was also great.
I recommend the Hartman team in every way for home renovations, in terms of value, quality and reliability. Bob has to be one of the most helpful and friendly contractors available and he ensures that you are happy with every stage of the project. My thanks to him and his team for everything they did for me.
We were delighted with the results of our reno. Bob and Ben's ideas were very creative which together with their flair for design resulted in a "jaw dropping" result. Their ability to solve problems was amazing. Their attention to detail went beyond the norm and the final result was beautiful.
In our kitchen we replaced the cupboard doors, countertop, backsplash and removed the old "sunshine ceiling" lighting. Their design of the cupboard doors and the matching of the panel on the back of the counter to the cupboard doors totally transformed our kitchen to that of a high end, totally new, kitchen. Bob's solution to updating our old sunshine ceiling was very creative and the result was a very modern updated look.They installed mood lighting on the top of the cabinets and undercounter lighting to complete the look.
Our guest bathroom had a new, fresh update with new cupboard doors, countertop, new tile and tile floor. The shower/ bathtub was fitted with a new seamless glass door and plumbing fixtures were updated. Again, it looks like a total rebuild.
In the ensuite bathroom they rebuilt our shower, knocked out a wall and created a beautiful seamless glass door shower. We had a custom built vanity installed and replaced the old built in tub with a free standing claw foot tub. With a new tile floor, the result is "stunning".
We did go over budget but this was due to our upgrading to high end countertops and fixtures. It was our choice but well worth it and the job was still reasonable for the results we got.
It did take longer than expected but this was due to Bob having a heart attach and surgery. Ben stepped up to the plate and did a great job. Bob was back on the job to finish up some small details as soon as he was able to do so just as he had promised.
We have had the great pleasure of working with Hartman's Construction and Property Services through the winter of 2017 on our home improvements. When we first posted on Trusted Pros, we weren't sure what we wanted exactly, but knew we needed help. The moment we met Bob when he came to give us a consult and meet us, we knew he and his team were the ones we wanted to help us.
They were professional, polite and always patient with us. Our asks evolved over time, and we continually added to out list and seemed to waiver on almost every decision. Bob and Ben never made us feel badly about this, and were always full of great ideas when we were unsure what to do next. The result is that we are in LOVE with EVERY single thing they did for us! And there were MANY!! They completely transformed our kitchen, new cabinets, new kitchen island, and even a few surprises which totally increased our WOW factor! Not to mention the basement finishing they did with us, adding two new bedrooms, a full bathroom and a wet bar. The value adds to our home are incredible.
We knew we wanted to replace our very outdated fireplace but had no idea how or with what. Bob came and designed a show home feature wall that we simply stare at most evenings!
We both work long hours, so Bob and Ben were so flexible and creative in their ways of communicating with us, and though we didn't get to be home during much of the renos, they kept in constant contact with us, even sending us photos throughout most days.
Their design ideas are amazing! In the future, I would simply tell them what we wanted and let them design the whole thing.
Super financially responsible, always telling us what might cost us a bit more, to be sure we were ok with is, and then trying to contain costs wherever possible. Even using materials from one room creatively in a new way in another.
The list goes on and on, but they completely transformed our home, and we are forever grateful and super impressed with the quality of work. We feel like we live in a show home now!
I'll close that literally on the day of the final invoice, we started talking to them on our next project. We would recommend Hartman Construction to anyone without hesitation.
I had a very disappointing experience with Hartman's Construction & Property Services in March 2016. No money was exchanged, thankfully, but after we had signed their contract they pulled out on us 2 days before demolition of our old sundeck was due to be done by them. The project was estimated at $10,000 and while the manager said the reason they pulled out was that we were taking up too much of their time with emails and changes for such a small job...their guy who came to assess the deck 2 days before demo mentioned they had a repeat client who wanted more work done and 'money was no object'...which makes me think they didn't want to spend the time on our little project when they could make more on their repeat client. After receiving estimates from 6 contractors through this website, in February we selected Hartman's because they were in the middle of the $$ estimates but had the most years in the business and the most reviews, all very good. When I asked if they had a business license for Coquitlam, I was told 'oops, looks like it's lapsed so we'll just renew it now', when we signed the contract we asked for a copy to be returned with their signature on it...which we never received, when an addition to the project was made we were given an additional estimate for it, which was no problem, but there was miscommunication on my part about the dimensions of the sundeck and so we were told the original estimate would have to be increased, stating a number of 'new' items...but when I pointed out their guy who was just here that day said we didn't need gutters and so a credit should actually be given to us and that those 'new' items were already in our contract and excerpted those points to show him...he responded and said oops, yes, I was correct, but that all these emails were taking up too much time for such a small project so they now respectfully declined our project. So, that was our experience.
After reading the rebuttal from this contractor I would like to say that the reason I posted this review was so other 'non-customers' (their designation) who sign a contract provided by them have all the information they need...good and bad...as my decision to hire this company was swayed by all the good reviews. They also do know that we were willing to pay for anything additional or more involved as I said this in an email to them. This was our first time dealing with a contractor so we probably did not do some things the way they should be done (the drawing for one...if we had been told we needed to pay for it we certainly would have)...but we are easy going people and would have welcomed being informed of proper procedure. The 'barrage' of emails they mention were actually discussing other projects, with one enquiry if our coming new patio door would be better handled by them vs separately as involved the deck vinyl, one addition of a privacy screen which we agreed on their price...and other than my referring to a different dimension of the deck which was just a misunderstanding on my part... that is all.
We felt it appropriate to respond to the unusual but not surprising Review' submitted by Wendy A regarding her proposed deck project in Coquitlam. We fully understand that everyone is entitled to vent their personal opinion. It is a well known fact that we enjoy 100% customer satisfaction and have done for many years. Many of our Trusted Pros customers have been delighted to submit some wonderful reviews on all aspects of what we do, so it does appear a little strange to receive a Negative' review from someone complaining because she was NOT a customer of ours! Yes we did provide a fixed price quotation to Wendy A and a our contract is never signed by us until such time as we request the initial deposit payment, which we never did ask for. This started off to be a comparatively small project but then after the quotation was submitted, a barrage of emails continued for a while with changes and amendments being requested almost endlessly, including the dimensions of the deck considerably. The goal posts were moved and moved again and then again once more. From our many years of experience and client relations, it became very obvious to us that we were encountering a potential customer who wanted to pay for a Ford and actually get a Mercedes for the same price. We were even asked to produce detailed engineering drawings for the deck, the footings, the bolts, the brackets and so on, in other words for drawings that would normally cost a considerable amount to have done by a professional, with no mention of offer to pay for this additional service. Again, based on our many years of service and experience, we felt confident in our decision that the signs were more than apparent of a potentially problematic customer and based upon this, it was decided ( After our contracts manager also visited the site ) to decline the project completely, even although we had a crew provisionally scheduled to commence the initial demo works that following week. When even our contracts manager returned and stated that he foreseen issues and problems with this client, we felt it totally appropriate to then decline the job, especially before any money changed hands and our contract was issued. Therefore in summary of the submitted review, we stand our ground on having made the right decision to walk away from this one. We still continue to keep our customers more than happy in every way and they are all available to testify to this. Because someone who was never a customer decides to throw a stone at us for no apparent reason, it doesn't mean that stone will succeed in breaking a window. It may also be worth mention that our contracts manager also offered this job to another business colleague's company and they turned it down too, even although they were looking for work.
