We've had a decent amount of work done on our home over the years, from fixing our deck to a complete conversion of our old garage into a first-floor suite for Jodi's mom.

I know that it's a difficult choice, who do you trust?

How do you know you're getting the best?

Let me say that I am happy to recommend two contractors who have done a lot of work for us.

They're on time, professional and cost-effective. Plus, I can tell you firsthand that I've had a great experience with both.
