Crystal and Dustin were fantastic to work with! They communicated so well throughout the renovation; we always knew when someone was coming by to work on our basement, what the next steps were, and what the timelines were going to be. They worked so well with our budget and found design elements that we didn’t think we’d be able to afford. Crystal’s idea for a pocket door to the bathroom is one of our favourite parts to the whole basement, and it’s something that didn’t even cross our mind. They truly are experts and professionals at what they do. They’ll definitely be doing our future renos!
Was very impressed with the level of professionalism from this great team. They provided a quote and contract and completed the job as per the contract . The painting quality was exceptional as well as the backsplash tile work. They left my house even more clean than I kept it !!! Would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in getting some renovations completed.
This was the kind of experience one dreams of in a contractor! Efficient, friendly, timely! All the sub-trades knew their stuff and were very good at what they do. It was by the book and we felt taken care of and properly coached throughout the whole process. Definitely recommend Dustin and Crystal!
We had the opportunity to meet Dustin and Crystal Marin when Dustin Marin's Contracting Ltd. was recommended to us for a porch we wanted built across the front of our home.
With their Company we benefitted not only from Dustin's exemplary workmanship but also Crystal's design expertise. Both were invaluable! They are a team that truly listens to the Client and delivers accordingly while at the same time offering suggestions to enhance the project.
We also appreciated their choice of sub-contractors as these sub-contractors were not only respectful of us, but of our property as well.
Our porch, when finished, truly exceeded our expectations!
We highly recommend this Company to anyone looking for quality workmanship and design and would be more than happy to talk to anyone wanting more information on our experience with Dustin and Crystal. We also invite anyone to drive by and see first hand our amazing Marin-built porch.

Thank you so much for the review! We look forward to many visits on that beautiful porch with you both.
I needed 2 bathrooms renovated, and after contacting Dustin, I was really impressed with how quickly he got back to me to discuss the work. Quality of work was excellent, and any changes I had were handled seamlessly. It was a pleasure dealing with both Dustin and Crystal, and i will definitely make them my first call on future work.
Thank you Bob, Both bathrooms turned out amazing and I am sure you are enjoying them still! All the best and we look forward to hearing from you :)
I had received Dustin's name from a coworker who has used Dustin's company for a few different projects at work. He was highly recommended.
I obtained a few quotes from a couple of different companies around my home town. So naturally, I was very pleased to see that Dustin's quote was less than the competitors.
Dustin was able to come in and quickly pull from his wealth of knowledge and experience in order to determine what exactly had to be done. Unlike some other "run by night" competitors, Dustin highly recommended that I obtain an engineers report for the removal of the wall (which I was going to do anyways).
Dustin also was able to problem solve with the location of the telepost that would be required for the project. In order to save time and money, he recommended that the post be installed through the cold air return. This was permitted by the local code inspectors and was a much cheaper alternative than what was proposed by other companies.
Dustin provided the quote before obtaining the engineers report and listed the material that the engineer would later recommend. This goes to show that Dustin really knew his stuff.
Dustin and his wife are a good team. They work together to communicate effectively and clearly with the customer. They clearly explain the deposit requirements and the cancellation requirements should we need to. Unlike some other companies, I was NOT worried about Dustin running away with the deposit like you hear on the news.
The work was done a lot quicker than the worst case scenario provided by Dustin. This was a pleasant surprise. The work was inspected right afterwards and passed with flying colours.
Dustin and his helper arrived while I was away. My wife had met Dustin on two separate occasions and was comfortable being at home while Dustin completed the project. Dustin left the place cleaner then when he arrived.
Would highly recommend Dustin Marin's Contracting Ltd.
Thank you so very much Levi! We very much appreciate you sharing your experience with us and everyone else that would like to look into our company. Cheers! Dustin & Crystal Marin
Dustin and Crystal could not have been better to deal with. Dustin was creative with the design and was very open to listen to my ideas to incorporate them into the final product. Our entrance to our cabin now has the “wow” factor and there is not a time that someone doesn’t pass by to comment on how nice it looks! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Thank you Lane! The gate looked very impressive when it was done for sure and we really loved the sign you had made up for it. We very much appreciate you taking the time to add your review to share your experience with our company.

I was recommended Dustin Marin's Contracting by a friend who was familiar with the company and the quality of work. He was not wrong and I'm glad I went with them. I was in the middle of a move when I contacted them for a quote. They quoted me a price to finish my basement and wet bar area. It was completed on time and within the budget. Everything was detailed so I could see a compete breakdown of costs. The work was fantastic, the trim, the pain colours everything. I was busy with a move and left many of the decisions to the owners. They did not disappoint. The would seek out cost effective ways to do things and showed or explained where I could cut costs where where possible without sacrificing quality. Once completed the owner came back and touched up a few things that I didn't even notice. The finished work was amazing and I couldn't have been happier with the quality of work, professionalism and price.
Thank you Peter, We really enjoyed working with you on your basement and having the freedom to work our magic. (although you really had nothing to worry about with Kitty supervising haha). We very much appreciate you taking time from your day to leave a review. All the best and keep in touch.

Re: DUSTIN MARIN’S CONTRACTING
In 2015 we as a company started doing research on several large and or small Construction contractors in the Reddeer area.
Planning on doing home and shop renovations.
Considerable time was spent on finding the right CAN DO TEAM!
Our goal was to find a local contractor that could provide us with:
1. Proper management skills. (TO manage ALL phases of work).
2. Communications skills.
3. Different ideas. (Some cost savings or upgrades) After the meetings some upgrades gone over that we would have never thought off, that in the end changed everything for the better).
4. Superior finished product.
5. Purchasing power. (Their prices better that I can get or better grade of materials).
7. Service NOW. And also in the FUTURE. (1 day call backs. Always.
In 2016 we did over $300,000 in renovations on our home and shop.
In 2017 we did an additional $30,000 of work
In 2018 and 2019 we are still using Marin’s Contacting exclusive for any or ALL our work.
Dustin and the Crystal TEAM will truly do the best job they can for you.
Their hands on and communications skills are extraordinary.
The walk thru each phase after work complete and eye for detail has impressed us all.
They most definitely stand behind ALL their work. 100 %.
The schedule they do up is very realistic. YES they stick to.
Example 16 week schedule done in 15 weeks. Second job 16 days done in 15 days.
Already they have worked for several of my friends. Their work speaks for itself.
Being a smaller company/contractor with access to ALL qualified trades, with same values is very impressive.
Brenda, Kim & I fully recommend DUSTIN MARIN’S CONTRACTING. Quality People/Work that’s On Time, at Fair Prices.
Our home in now a show home.
Thank You Very Much.
Bob & Brenda King
