Hello – just wanted to write a proper thank you for all the work that you and your team did on our beautiful house. We very much appreciate everything that you did to bring us from a oddly laid out, many times reno’d, 100 year old house with “lots of potential” to the stunning, functional “home” that we have today. We are enjoying it so very much.From going to bat for us for permits to agonizing over flooring samples (please, can we see just a few more?!), Annaliesse, you were there for us (at all hours) and made the process fun. The energy and enthusiasm that you bring to your work is fantastic. We’ll always credit you with the brilliant idea to hang the bathroom mirrors in the windows! And Garth, thanks for pushing the project over the final few hurdles and lending your expertise when it was most needed. Of course, as with any reno, there were bumps in the road and emotion-filled moments, but your team always handled everything with respect and class. We really feel like it was a partnership – we both had some give and take – and ultimately ended up up in a really great place. We were talking the other day about whether we’d refer friends to Klondike or use you again ourselves, and we both quickly agreed that the answer is yes. You made good on your commitments and delivered us a house that you shaped into our home.

I am so pleased with the renovations and have received many compliments on the fine work done. The coordination and communication done by your project manager was excellent and I had felt probably went above and beyond the scope of her job description. Many of the tradesmen who were at my place consistently commented on the fact that Klondike has design consultants who were of high quality and “really knew what they were doing”. To my relief, everything seemed to fall in place and I must comment on how friendly all the tradesmen were. I thought they were all respectful, friendly and a bonus for me was that they were good to my little dog. The Teamwork was excellent! It has been a pleasure to work with Klondike. I would have no trouble recommending Klondike Contracting to any of my friends.

We recently had the pleasure of dealing with Klondike Contracting when we hired their property maintenance services for our home. Everyone we dealt with at the company including the receptionist and the workers were extremely polite and professional. Due to that experience, we contacted the company again for carpentry work and painting. The carpenters were excellent however the painting was less than desirable in terms of quality. When we contacted our project manager, he responded promptly and professionally and sent another painter over to our home to redo the work with no hesitation or cost to us. In all our history of renovating properties, it was a delight to find Klondike Contacting.

Prior to starting our kitchen renovations, we had done research and selected 4 contractors to interview. A deciding factor on choosing Klondike was their warm personality, thoroughness, details and professionalism on that first visit. He came prepared with samples of itemized cost illustrations to give us a sense of where the costs add up and answered our many questions. Klondike has received many awards as proof of their standard of work. As our renovations progressed there was always close communication with Designer Kelly and Project Coordinator, Mikiko on a frequent basis. Several times we changed plans along the way and these were taken in stride and acted upon promptly. When the cabinets were installed and an oversight was noticed in the depth to the fridge, full responsibility was taken and the cabinets were replaced immediately without question. This made for happy us knowing that the dollars spent would be up to our expectations. What we also noticed from start to finish was how organized and clean the site was at all times. Existing rooms and furniture were well protected from dirt and damage. We believe that aside from the quality work of their trades team, what really made a difference was their work warranty and promptness in getting things corrected for any discrepancies whatsoever. With all these positive factors, we have invited them to return to renovate our bathroom/ensuite. We absolutely would not hesitate to recommend Klondike to those who want a job well done. Thanks Klondike, we look forward to using our new kitchen and bathrooms.

I have employed Klondike on two separate occasions to do extensive renovations on my home. On both occasions, I have found the work to be of a very high quality and the jobs were completed in a timely fashion and very much to my satisfaction. Leslie Howard

When we decided to do a full home renovation we made sure that we selected a contractor that we were comfortable with. Our experience with Klondike has shown that our initial impressions were absolutely correct. Throughout the entire design and build process they were helpful and professional and we couldn’t be happier with the final product. Undertaking a renovation of this size was no small decision and Jacqueline, our designer,and Garth, our project manager, worked to make sure the design met our requirements and our budget. When we had to put the project on hold for personal reasons they made every accommodation to ensure that we didn’t feel pressured. Once construction started the job was done professionally with skilled trades people, all of whom were polite and very willing to spend time with us discussing the work. The scheduling was done such that I don’t see how the project could have been completed more quickly. There were people on site every day for seven months, at times more than a dozen working at once. Overall this was a very positive experience that makes us feel that we got our money’s worth from the re-design and from the assistance provided by Klondike. Fraser Robertson

The job went smoothly, but when the few inevitable problems developed, they were dealt with immediately. Our project manager James was particularly good  at responding quickly and efficiently. Maggie Edwards & John PJ Pinel

Klondike Contracting completed several projects at my home in Shaughnessy. I found the tradesmen who performed the work at my residence to be knowledgeable, experienced, and thorough. Based on the appearance of the finished products, our conversations throughout the process and my observations of the meticulous, measured approach employed, I have a high level of comfort and trust regarding the quality of work performed. Klondike’s tradesmen were courteous, professional, thoughtful and neat from beginning to end. Thomas R. Stapleton

Thank you for the excellent work you did on our house. During the whole process you kept us well informed of what needed to be done and what it would cost. This enabled us to make good decisions. The work was carried out quickly and efficiently with very little mess and muddle. We are delighted with the results. Patricia Porter

We found Klondike to be an effective and honorable organization with an ethical, honest & sound practical approach. Their attention to detail, openness and sensitivity enabled us to establish both a sense of trust and a solid communication process. Klondike keeps its word, and to us this was important. Our experience with Klondike was uniformly positive, and we would use them again on any project, large or small. Dr. Peter & Linda Hotz

For the past few years we have been using Klondike Contracting for all our home renovations. The trades have all been very personable and have all done a great job in their respective fields. Klondike have been very professional throughout all our dealings with them, they have been reasonably priced, on-time, and on budget. I cannot speak highly enough of Klondike. Sarah McSevney

Meticulous attention was paid to the smallest detail in the execution of this extensive project … We recognized and appreciate the excellent quality of skillful workmanship and supervision … your workers were always ready to please and jointly employed incredible effort to ensure the best possible job was completed without compromise. We are so pleased and grateful for a job done with such integrity, professionalism and enthusiasm to meet and even exceed our expectations. Barbara & Herb Silber

My wife and I had a great experience with the team at Klondike.  Their professionalism, service and results are all top notch.  Perhaps even more importantly, we were extremely impressed with how Eric and his team handled a challenging situation.  This spoke tremendously to Klondike’s ethics and core values.  I highly recommend them for your next project.
