Our renovations were extensive. The inside of our home was almost entirely renewed. Structural improvements to stabilize the floor were also undertaken.
We found Jackie to be very helpful in designing, advising and selecting materials. She kept close watch on progress and budgeted well, although we did exceed our own budget by choosing higher quality products.
We live in a rural area over one hour away from Edmonton. Despite the travelling distance, Jackie was always on site when she was needed and came out regularly to supervise the work. Communication was excellent as she was always available either by email, text or phone, even on week-ends.
Darryl with his work crews was efficient and precise. He was a good communicator and also very open to our modifications as work progressed. They took care not to inconvenience us, though we were not living in the house. At the end of each work day, the site was cleaned and refuse carted out. Workers were very willing to set aside discarded materials for which we had further use. Sub-contractors (flooring, tilers, painters, electrician) took pride in their work.
Jackie was intent on completing the project according to the agreed deadline (two months). However, due to underestimation of supplies by some sub-contractors, delays did occur. We preferred having quality work done rather than rushing to meet the estimated end date.
We have only two recommendations:
-take more time for the design of the kitchen details and have price comparison charts ready for various cabinet finishes and options.
-ensure recyclable materials (ie: cardboard) are not discarded.
Visualize by Design proved to be friendly, courteous and professional. We are very pleased with the finished project and would recommend them highly.
