We hired Vector General Contracting Inc. for our cottage project. The cottage was left unattended for over 7yrs; when the time came to start, we contacted Ernest through Handy Canadian Website. It took him a week to show up to the cottage. He took video and measurements to get designs done. A week later was the reveal of the design and budget, but due to his heavy schedule, we decided on starting the project on a later date towards the fall. In September 2009, He came around to begin a project that took almost 8weeks until the City stopped the final part of the project, citing they weren't happy with the block work for the cottage leading into the lake. They preferred wood, but this was our decision to use blocks, so we went to court to overturn the decision which carried on till May 2010. After the final judgement he came back to complete the week job left to complete the final project.
Ernest was a man of his word, and polite and informative, though many contractors wouldnt go through with a project the second time, he was patient and professional in his approach in dealing with the whole issue. I would recommend Ernest and his crew for any project. He as a project manager is always involved from design to construction to completion and a very courteous individual. He was always available for questions relating to the ongoing project, as he takes personal interest in the project as it was his own.
While Ernest worked to stay within our budget, due to poor management (he only realized we were over budget when it was too late) he went over budget by 20%. However, this was not what really bothered us. As soon as we made the final payment, we never heard from him again. We have tried repeatedly to call him (the number is no longer active) and email him (no response) because there were several things that were done incorreclty (water infiltrating behind tiles in the shower, heater that he installed never worked), however he has dissappeared! If you decide to hire Ernest as your contractor, I would advise that you ensure all the work is done appropriately before making your final payment.
This was a deck and fence project completed September 2009. After a slow start getting the project going and various rain delays the fence and deck came together very nicely. Ernest and his team were responsive to any of my concerns and corrected things as needed. They were also able to adjust things on the fly as changes were made. All in all I was very pleased with both the construction experience and the completed work.
