We needed a shower modified to accommodate mobility issues due to a work accident. Worders Compensation was paying and we had to find a contractor willing to work with them. Sounds easy, but it wasn't. We had a few contractors come to do quotes and no further communications from tgem after that. We called Jay, he came out for the quote and followed up! :) He had no issues dealing with WCB. The shower turned out better then we ever expected. Oak cabinets had to be modified and looking at the bathroom now; the bathroom looks like the shower has been there the whole time.. it wasn't a plan b. Excellent work, excellent communication! Highly recommend That Guy Contracting!
In April of 2014, after meeting with 2 other contractors I liked the vibe and communication I had immediately with Jay; he listened, advised, provided written estimates and worked with my budget. I had serious issues with interior water seepage due to ice damning (winter of 2013) and knew I had to do major work. Jay helped me decide what was necessary and what extras we would work on. I will be getting him back to renovate the basement (and can't wait!).
I live in an older neighbourhood and wanted a garage that looked like it belonged; Jay helped me do that and put up with my eccentric requests! It looks fabulous! That led to grading around the house (including moving a deck) lots of brick laying, and a fence.
Meanwhile inside Jay had the main bathroom redone (which had formerly been poorly done by another 'handyman'), and replaced 3 bedroom windows, very large living room windows, and patio doors.
The front cement step was replaced with a wooden step. The front driveway had to be cut to locate the main water line and replace the 65-year-old rotten cast-iron pipe with new PVC pipe (it was bound to happen sooner than later... other neighbours had to have that done).
There were many extra things that Jay did too... I know it was a HUGE job, but I felt like I was looked after, communication was not an issue at all, and I am very satisfied (one year later!) with the overall project.
We hired Jay to develop our basement. We met Jay at the Regina Home Show, did not know anyone that was an acquaintance of his or knew him. We had great communication from the first day he met with us through to the very end of the project. Jay was provided with detailed instructions as far as what we wanted and he followed them precisely. His sub-trades were all very professional, courteous, and timely in completing their work. His trades all had nothing but good things to say about Jay and it was evident that he had a very good working relationship with all of his trades. We did a final walkthrough together prior to him requesting final payment from us. We would hire him again without hesitation, and we have recommended him to friends, neighbours and colleagues as he is very trustworthy, reliable and conscientious about his work.
Do not trust this guy! He ripped us off! He verbally agreed to pay for our hood range insulation and begged us for his final payment before the job was complete! We hardly saw him unless he was picking up a cheque and for the most part...he just picked up the cheques in the mailbox. He argued about everything. He made decisions without my knowledge then was mad when I didn't agree and wanted them changed. He seems like a nice guy until you disagree with him. His paint job was crap! He put floor vents directly in front of our patio door when it could of been moved over early on. But most of all.... he waits to get fully paid then he sends me a bill from a hood range insulation that happened months ago.... he agreed to install it free of cost from us. Then went back and forth with it in text messages. His written contract was unprofessional and I had 3 different ones. He went over budget and also promised us a basement bathroom that never happened. His workers complained about how cheap he is. He screw us....we waited for 1 and half months after the job was supposed to be done til our kitchen cupboards were done but he wanted to be paid before everything was complete. He didn't return to clean up his garbage or a final walk threw. This guy is a joke to say the least. I could of saved a bundle higher in my own guys! I'm pissed! And to get a 1000 dollar bill after I paid him in full is a big disappointment. All he cares about is money. Telling me I had to give him final payment early so he could pay kitchen guys???? Don't you run a business?????? Don't you have money upfront???? Do not higher this guy. He's a sweet talking scammer and he doesn't keep his word!
We did the job as per contract, the clients changed the details of job and did not want to pay a difference, it was exactly as the quote was described, there was one cupboard door that had to be returned and reordered that took 6 weeks other than that the job was done ahead of promised date.
The client knew from the start that they were responsible for the install of range hood and appliances from the start. It was on quote and in text.
All garbage was cleaned up and removed also
