Bathroom Remodel

We wanted to completely redo 2 bathrooms and these builders did it while we were away. Before beginning the project, they provided us with a detailed budget, which is something we really appreciated. They then assisted me in picking out materials. They worked on our place while we went on holidays for three weeks and put a huge smile on our face when we returned. There were a couple of minor things that remained to be done, once we returned home and the owners of the company, themselves came out to complete the work, in a very timely manner. They made sure we were completely satisfied before presenting their final bill, which was right on budget. The bathrooms look beautiful and we would highly recommend working with Builders by Design.

Complete Remodel - 2 floors

When we made the decision to completely renovate our home we were faced with the task of trying to find a reputable contractor who could see and execute our vision. We have all heard of the nightmare stories of renovations gone bad, not to mention the various TV shows highlighting these stories. My wife and I decided to call Builders by Design and set up a meeting with Gerry. He showed up at our home with his picture portfolio of some of his work. After walking through our home with us and listening to exactly what we wanted our new home to be, he sat down and explained to us what we could expect from him throughout the renovation process. When he left, we felt comfortable as he was very professional and personable. Within a week Gerry came back to us with a quote and we decided to entrust him with our home. This was by far the best choice we could have made! The renovation was completed on time and on budget, two words which generally do not seem to go along with renovation. If we were over budget on anything, it was only due to something which was unforeseen or we decided to upgrade. As well, anything outside the budget was not started until it was discussed with us and a "change order" was signed. There were no surprises. Communication throughout the renovation was excellent and his team of professional trades were great to work with. On the reveal day, Gerry greeted us at our front door with the keys to our new home. Our home looked like a show home and was professionally cleaned prior to our arrival. We are extremely pleased with the quality of work and care which went into the renovation. As to be expected, after the renovation there were a few small issues to be addressed. These small details were quickly taken care of and the overall follow up was excellent. We are extremely happy with our experience with Builders by Design and take pleasure in recommending them highly. Jackie & Ward - Kelowna, BC

CV Engineering

I have worked with Builders by Design for several months on a major project in the Mount Royal area in Calgary. Builders by Design consistently produces superior quality work time and time again. Gerry Poissant and his crew, invariably understands exactly what a project is all about from the outset and how to get it done quickly and effectively, and is a pleasure to work with. I reviewed Gerry's work on a very difficult renovation, and was very pleased with the outcome. I was particularly impressed by the professionalism and technical innovation in handling potential problems. Gerry always "gets it right" the first time. I recommend Gerry Poissant very highly as a contractor, especially if it involves complexity and creativity, with high quality requirements. Carlo - Calgary, AB

Garage Project

From the time Gerry came over to quote on my project, until completion, it was clear that he had my best interest at heart. I was very impressed at the level of detail he covered and the quality of workmanship. I was able to relax, knowing that a professional was going to build it right. His crew worked diligently, keeping in mind with each step, that cutting corners was an unacceptable practice. Thanks to Builders By Design my project was completed in a stress free fashion, and to my total satisfaction! I highly recommend Gerry and his crew, and look forward to my next project with them.

Kitchen Renovation

"We recently had Builders by Design complete a major renovation (mainly the kitchen) on our heritage home. We have to say we are absolutely thrilled with the work that was done. From our first meeting with Gerry we knew he was the right person for the job - someone who would listen to what our vision was, make sure no corners were cut, and see everything through to a great final 'product'. We were not disappointed. "We are so pleased with the quality of work by Builders by Design. Everyone who has seen our kitchen has commented that not only does it look good on the surface but they can see the high caliber of work that went into it. To say our kitchen has some 'wow' factor would be an understatement! Without reservation we would highly recommend Builders by Design to any of our family and friends, and anyone else looking for a contractor - truly a standout in the industry.

New Foundation Window

"I have recently purchased a new home which had a bedroom in the basement - without a window. I frequently have guests visit from out of town and this is the only room for them to sleep in. I contacted Gerry to have him put a window in the bedroom so that i could sleep at night knowing my guests would be safe! I was able to go on vacation with the peace of mind that upon my return, I would have window in the basement bedroom and that the work would be professional and to code" Janeen - Calgary, AB without a window.

"From our first meeting to discuss our "wish List" you approached our ideas with an open mind & willingness to accommodate. You were alway respectful of our budget concerns & gave great ideas & alternatives to help keep within our price range" "The fact that we felt comfortable leaving our home for 2 weeks to enable you to complete the work is testament to our level of trust in you. I can assure you there was no other company we considered for the project that we would have left in full control of our home in our absence. Upon our return we were very pleased with the finished project" Tim & Sandy - Calgary, Alberta
