Darrel is a gem of a find! He was an absolute pleasure to work with: friendly and approachable, providing real attention, personal advice and suggestions to meet my needs and budget, and kept me up to date with progress and plans. His workmanship and work ethic are outstanding and the property was left immaculate when the job was done - so very impressed! I now enjoy my deck and backyard more than ever and will most certainly use him again for projects in the future. Thank you Darrel!
Darrel was great to work with and built a beautiful feature wall for us. This required repair of the existing wall, installation of new drywall, installation of board & batten, painting and finishing. He was communicative and professional, and I would absolutely work with him again.
It was a pleasure to deal with this company! Our repairs weren't all that extensive so most companies couldn't be bothered....Not Darrel and his team! Always kept me updated and repaired it as soon as it was physically possible What with the rain etc...
We would definitely recommend them for you needs & we would absolutely use them again!
We live in Saskatchewan so being able to trust them from a distance was very helpful...our tenants are happy with the work done.
I highly recommend Darrel with Measure up contracting. We had our deck quoted and built in June, 2020. Darrel was very reliable and professional throughout the whole process we originally were going to go pressure treated everything and that was the original quote I had contacted him back to change our plans to a vinyl deksmart top and had to go with aluminum railings! which look amazing, when i contacted him about it he offered many different options and worked with us to come up with a solid plan and pick everything out.
Darrel was always professional and here when he said he was going to be here, Deck was built in the time frame he had mentioned. there was a few delays on a couple steps due to covid and weather, in the end the finished product is beautiful and we are very happy we chose measure up contracting for our project, now we have the summer and many many years of maintenance free care for our home!
We couldn’t be happier with the end result. Darrel was easy to work with. He listened to our ideas. He perfected an arched door way to match an existing one. Work site was tidy. Project was completed within the promised time frame. Highly recommend!!
The weather has so much to say when refinishing a deck with preparation, application, and curing. Darrel did an excellent job on our deck etc. despite the weather, getting the job done efficiently! He strives for perfection!
I would highly recommend MEASURE UP CONTRACTING LTD. and would have them work for us again!
This company was excellent in every way, fast, efficient, courteous. The roofers worked until after the sun set so they could finish in one day. This included replacing pieces of wood that had started to rot at the edge of the roof.
Also Darrel noted my porch roof was not level and he levelled it for me. Now the rain will not run over into my driveway and freeze there as it has every year since I moved here.
We hired Measure Up to do a major main floor renovation. We added approx 200 square feet to the main floor by building a floor over an 'open to below' concept space. This required engineered drawings, and custom floor joist system. It also required that we take off the back of the house, remove existing windows, re-frame the exterior wall and install new windows. We also took out a kitchen and installed a new one with a 10 foot island. We installed new hardwood in the 'new ' space, ceramic tile in the new kitchen, new back splash, granite counter tops, lighting, new paint, baseboard and casing throughout the main floor. We also had to do some flooring repair in the basement, had new railing, hand rail and baseboard installed in the basement. We also added 2 new window openings in the basement. It was a very extensive renovation that was handled extremely well. The trades came in in a timely manner, Darrel was on site every day that we had someone working on the project. He handled the 'hick-ups' efficiently and kept us up to date on the progress. We always knew what was going to happen next and when. Darrel is very knowledgeable, conscientious and meticulous!!
We are very excited to have Measure up back to complete the master ensuite transformation early 2017!!
