Update to previous blog post: Calgary Home Renovations – are you paying twice?

By | contractors, renovations | No Comments

Everyone, including Rhymack Homes Ltd., loves a happy ending. We previously blogged about Calgary home renovations gone wrong. A client had hired a disreputable ‘contractor’ from a well known classified ad website. In the owners own words, he managed to do more damage in 6 hours than there was when he arrived! This was not a huge job, but we treat all of our projects with the same care and attention, regardless of size. We thought it would be good to show a few of the before and after photos.

A picture says a thousand words

On the left, the ‘before’ picture indicates the state the previous contractor left the counter top in, and considered it finished. On the right, our fix.

This next set shows the job that was done on the lino in their entryway, and again, considered ‘finished’ by the previous contractor. What you cannot see is that he actually SCREWED lino down in places – not kidding.

And here is an ‘after’ photo:



One more set of pictures, a lovely shelf that was previously installed – in case you are wondering, yes, the shelf is installed upside down! Our repair to that situation is on the right. Sometimes a basket is just the right solution to your storage problems!

There were many other small repairs throughout the house. In the end, the client is very happy with the work we did(read her google review here).  She has gone on to recommend us to numerous others in the market for renovations. At the end of the day, we all know that word of mouth is the best advertising you can buy. We were happy to help out and make it right! As professionals in Calgary home renovations, we have standards to uphold. Give us a call if you are looking to renovate any time soon!
