Advice from Award-Winning Home Renovations Experts
Things to Consider When Selecting a Renovator/Renovations Company
When talking about home renovations in calgary, one question that always comes up is “how can the functionality and aesthetic appeal of a house be improved?”. Homeowners like yourself are always looking to boost the comfort, aesthetic appeal, and ultimately, the value of their home. Nonetheless, people are always torn between hiring a regular home renovator or a professional outfit. The fact of the matter is, a large number of owners have the perception that a professional or more experienced firm will charge a hefty sum for their work. Some don’t even bother to take the necessary steps to distinguish a professional from the rest with accurate research and personal engagement with each company. However, in all cases, dealing with a team of experts has shown numerous benefits for home owners. At an elemental level, you can be rest assured that a true expert will offer you a professional service. While undertaking the repairs or renovations of your home renovation project, a professional is guided by certain work principles and ethics that elevates the level to which they must perform. After all, the goal of a true expert is to not just to finish a project in time, but to deliver an extraordinary end product/experiences for you, your family and your guests.

At Trademark renovations, we believe the fruits of a successful project isn’t just seen in the final piece but also the experience as a whole. And as was stated previously, one of the key advantages of working with a professional during a Calgary home renovations project is top notch service. A top calgary renovation service provider will always seek to engage the customer at every stage and work to amend all plans to satisfy the customer’s needs. In addition, a renovations expert only sources for quality materials from reputable vendors and sources. All in all, besides providing great customer service, a reputable renovations company always make sure the final product is of the highest quality.
Now we’re not going to sugar coat anything for you, home repairs, improvements, additions and renovations come with several intrinsic inconveniences and fears. Problems with the service provider not delivering what was agreed upon, postponement of the completion date, and additional charges that were not included in the budget could easily arise with many renovators. In the end, the homeowner may feel under pressure financially, physically, psychologically and also emotionally. These are some of the things a trustworthy renovations company should already be aware of and thus from the onset they should always aim to reduce and manage the stress and inconveniences that may come about while ensuring the client has peace-of-mind through the duration of the project.
Looking at the issues above, a homeowner in Calgary and surrounding areas should always seek to involve a professional contractor to carry out their renovation projects.

What Some of Our Past Clients Have to Say
To Whom it May Concern: I would like to extend this letter of recommendation in respect to the renovation services provided my family by Trademark Renovations. We have recently completed our extensive renovation project with the help of Trademark here in Calgary, completely updating our home inside and out. This work included extensive electrical rewiring, plumbing, framing, drywall, windows and doors, painting, stucco, insulation, finishing, countertops and cabinetry. Our budget was set early, and planning of the project began 6 months before initiation. We contracted Trademark based on their experience and performance on RENOMARK tour homes we had toured, as well as third party recommendations. We found Trademark`s cost-plus billing method most appropriate for our project, as it allowed for flexibility to changes as the project progressed, but maintained significant transparency in the cost structure. The end result was that our project came in significantly under the Trademark cost estimate, as well as under our personal targets, and met the Trademark best timeline. This allowed us to accomplish several small additional renovation items for minimal extra cost once “line-of –sight” to each component cost was evident. This made for high project satisfaction on our part.
We have been pleased with the quality of materials and workmanship provided by Trademark`s subcontractors. The value found in prompt, pleasant, and on-time subcontractors is significant. Trademark is a large enough company that the subcontractors have a vested interest in a coordinated effort, but small enough that they maintain high quality and friendly people. They have been most willing to perform extra work at reasonable pricing while continuing to make critical deadlines in a very fast-paced project. The site was left very clean and all waste materials regularly removed.
Marc Gibbons supervised all onsite work, was very committed to our project, was on site very regularly, and maintained constant contact with us. He immediately identified potential delays, and either prompted decisions on our part or found a way for the contractors to overcome the issue. This effort kept the project on schedule, in spite of weather, backorder and change delays. He was pleasant to work with and knowledgeable.
Based on the above we highly recommend Trademark Renovations on any similar project.

We recently completed a full exterior and partial interior renovation on our home using Trademark, including new roof, windows, siding, driveway, hardwood and built in entertainment centre. We had an excellent experience. The job was completed on time and under budget and to a very high standard. The people involved both at Trademark and the subcontractors they employed were professional and extremely pleasant to deal with. We were kept up to date on what was happening and received regular spreadsheets from Marc (our project manager) detailing the costs to date as compared to budget.
We would be confident in recommending Trademark to anyone.
Blair, prior to starting our renovation, we heard all kinds of horror stories about renovation budget overruns, delayed construction schedules and huge demands on time. Both Sonja and I found, that dsepite the huge size of our renovation, the process that Trademark Renovations deployed for us was ouststanding and in fact was somewhat surprisingly pleasant.
Working with your project management team was actually quite fun at times. I particular appreciated the fact taht the craftsman and trades were accessible to us and quite pleasant to work with. You presented problems to us in clear terms and the choices we could make were also clear.
Needless to say we kept track of the cost and despite the size of the renovation your team brought us very close to budget. Nearly all of the items that exceeded the budget were in fact choices we made and this was truly a positive surprice for us.
We are extremely proud of the house your team prepared for us and the quality of work is clear to anyone that visits. You have a great concept Blair and a great team.
We thank you deeply.

During 2011, our family was looking at the possibility of buying a new house. Although we liked the idea of a new house we were never completely comfortable with the idea of leaving our neighbourhood. In the autumn of 2011 my wife and I decided to look into renovating our house. We checked into several companies and met with a few of them. We were impressed by Trademark’s attention to detail in our initial meetings and decided to work with them. When we met with Blair and Marc, not only did they understand the vision we had for our house, they helped to make it better. Their advice in the initial planning stages enhanced the finished product and helped use our budget in the most efficient way possible. Once the plans were finalized Trademark presented us with a budget and completion date that we all agreed upon. The idea of a full renovation of our house seemed daunting, but with the guidance of Marc and the rest of the Trademark team, my wife and I never felt overwhelmed at any point during the project. Once building commenced we knew we were in good hands. Every single tradesperson that worked on our house was very competent and extremely easy to work with. Trademark’s team showed excellent attention to detail, and kept my wife and I organized with regard to the timing of choosing the various finishing’s for our house. The work ethic of the entire team was admirable, there were very few days including weekends, when there wasn’t one trade or another working on our house.
As the project neared completion and we were getting ready to move back into our house, the Trademark team continued to show great communication, even with all of the last minute finishing’s that needed to be done. When the project was complete and we moved back into our house, the results were everything we could have hoped for. We met our agreed upon move in date and we were well within our budget. Most importantly we were ecstatic with the finished product. We are extremely satisfied with the decision we made to renovate our home instead of buying.
Our family continues to enjoy every aspect of our house, and have recommended Trademark to anyone thinking of doing a renovation.
Sincerely,Cougar Ridge Project
