Don and his great team, including John and Paul, were very professional and courteous.
Don's straight forward advice helped steer us in the right direction with respect to the overall project design.
We were able to take advantage of his connections with kitchen suppliers to same money on the cabinets and the quartz or granite counter tops.
John and Paul, had lots of good ideas to smooth things at the installation stage throughout.
Timing is essential for a smooth reno, while there were a couple of hiccups, generally the reno went very well. No big payment up front, no deception about fees or supplies, just straight forward billings every couple of weeks, what is not to like about that!
Their work is so infectious that you will have them look at other areas, we did. We started out with just the Kitchen, then the main bath, then the ensuite, and oh yeah, one more little matching counter for the basement bath please, it was all good.
We are happy to recommend them for anyone wanting a quality job done in a timely manner. You will not be disappointed, give Don and his team a call today, they book up fast!
Hi, My name is Reza from All in one Kitchen renovations Ltd
We have hired Don for several renovations projects during the last 3 years, all I can tell is Honest and a very good service.
He is capable and easy to work with.
For any questions please feel free to call me at 403-277-1132
I will be so happy to answer your questions about this company.
Don was pleasant but would only say "that's what the city allows" or "that's the way all carports have to be built now" whenever I questioned what he was doing. On one occasion, I went to City Building Permits and asked about an issue Don and I had been bantering about and was told that it could indeed be done the way I wanted and that the City had thought (by the drawings) that it was to be done that way anyway. When I told Don and also informed him that the City had Requilrements attached to the Permit and that they confirmed that these Requirements were faxed to Don, he claimed at first that they didn't send them because he didn't get them and then later said that his fax machine was broken so he didn't receive them. The Requirements were never completed but the City did Sign Off on the work anyway.... The Final Bill was substantially higher than the original contract price but since it was stated on the contract that any other building materials required would be at cost plus 15% and that unforeseen costs could increase, I had to pay the higher price. So I had to pay more even though he "forgot" about the items not listed in the original quote. I would not recommend Don McKay.
The carport was built and charged for at the quoted price and according to the drawings that were approved by the homeowner.
From the time we started the job she was complaining about one thing or another. She had me do a whole lot of extra work that was not on the drawings or quoted in the quote that she had signed. I only charged her for a portion of the extras and was very lenient whit the extras. She had us build an extra wall and also to install a continuous eavstrough along the side of her mobile home that were not on any drawings or quotes. The fax she is referring to she never mentioned until we were well under way with construction. If the fax had been received then the cost of soffit under the entire carport would have been in the quote at a considerable extra amount.Don McKay
Don at Rocky Developments was the most professsional tradesman/handyman that I've had the pleasure of hiring!
I had extensive home renovations to complete. Don and his workers assisted me with many problems as soon as they were required
He priced out jobs very competetively. (Hourly rate was more than fair.He never wasted time getting started.) While waiting for me to arrive with material, he took the initiatve and completed detail trim on a bow window that he knew I was hoping to find time to complete!
Don had written detailed reciept of work, materials, taxes, etc. when requested. He was meticulous in keeping records of your job as well as meticulous detail in his workmanship.His experience shows in every aspect of his work! Thanks Don!
My home was listed for sale while being finished. The first person through offered more than asking price. Why? They said they were impressed with the beautifully renovated kitchen! This included ceramic tile floor blending into oak hardwood floors. He installed an oak kitchen, new plumbing, marble looking countertops and a tumbled marble backsplash with trim. He added a direct vent stove hood fan and fitted a brand new stove into the opening with a perfect fit. The cost was much better than any competitors, and he explained my options carefully and LISTENED to my input before proceeding with the work. Thank You Don for a job well done!
Don did all this work and extra within a tight timeline. (There was a short possesion date with additional work to complete. Don came to the rescue!) He is honest, trustworthy, hardworking and talented. He is also a very pleasant person to deal with as he extends every courtesy to his clients. I consider myself very luck to have found this professional first before taking my chances with others.Thanks again Don and company!!!
