We hired Steve at Sandbar to completely finish the basement in our Calgary home. We worked with Steve to develop a plan and he gave us a quote, which we accepted and moved to the work/development stage of the basement. He worked in a timely and efficient manner, with great professionalism and honestly. Some subtrades were brought in for special jobs dealing with plumbing and electricity, and all were very good to deal with. The basement turned out just how we wanted it.
We would highly recommend Steve for any project you may have. We found Steve to be very professional, knowledgeable and consciousness. He always communicated very well with us. We were never left to guess. We've received numerous compliments on our deck and are thoroughly enjoying our time spent on it.
Re: Steven McInnis of Sandbar Construction. May/June 2011
From the first moment my husband, Al, and I met Steve McInnis, of Sandbar Construction, we were impressed by his work ethic and communication skills. He is a courteous person and was focused on his task from beginning to end. He keeps his workspace neat and tidy and uses updated tools and machinery to ensure he does a great job for his clients.
Watching the deck progress and seeing the careful detailing that he gave to every job, was most encouraging. My husband observed most of the construction and was very pleased with how well Steve worked with the tools and materials. He also had young apprentices with him and proved to be excellent at teaching them new techniques and skills.
Steve has the ability to recognize that certain improvements can be made as he goes along and always discusses the reasons for adding additional hardware to the project or suggesting worthwhile changes to the job.
We will have no qualms in recommending him to our friends who are thinking of having a deck built.
We hired Sandbar Construction Inc. to rebuild and expand our 20 year old builders' grade deck. At our first meeting, Steve spent quality time with us assessing the state of the existing deck and pillars, and providing potential options for us in terms of both layout and building materials. We received his quote no more than 2 days later. He quoted us on the complete job, from tear down of the original deck to painting the posts and trim of its replacement. His quote was very detailed. The cost of each step of the process, including the cost differentials for materials were included. When we decided to do the tear-down, staining and painting of ourselves, Steve didn't blink an eye, even though it could have meant messing up his schedule.
The construction was a dream! Steve and his team did a tremendous job. The worksite was always tidy during work hours and at the end of the day. His communication with us throughout the project was excellent. For example, every day Steve took the time to talk to us and let us know where the project was at the end of his workday. If he had another project on the go at the same time, Steve let us know how that could impact our construction schedule. The reality is that Steve is so organized that we never did feel impacted by other projects. The deck was built and railings installed before we knew it.
While his quote was a bit higher (and not dramatically) than some others, he is worth every penny. Our deck is amazing compared to other cheaper decks in our neighbourhood. Steve's commitment to detail, quality workmanship and customer satisfaction makes hiring Sandbar Construction a no-brainer.
