Collapsing deck rebuilt- excellent job!

We had the deck rebuilt by Busy Beaver. EXCELLENT work - fast, quality work done. Special thanks to Brady and Christina for organizing and proving all the information and to Noel also for his superb craftsmanship in building our deck. Would recommend Busy Beaver if you want EXCELLENT work done with care and attention to detail. Even the clean-up was excellent!

Deck & Back Fence

When it came to choosing a contractor for our project we were happy and relieved that Brady knew what he was doing and was able to help us through the process of getting the most out of out deck. It wasn't long before I knew that Busy Beaver was going to be our choice and wow am I glad we made the right decision. We got he fortress style and it is solid.
It costs a little extra but well worth it to go with this style. Kevin is a true master carpenter and so well organized. He methodically put our deck and fence up in about three days. Brady worked with us on the final clean up and we are truly happy with the end result. When I walk around the area I live in, I feel lucky to have such excellent piece of work.

What a great local company!!

Francois, Christina and the crew at Busy Beaver have been great to deal with over the years. We, here at Twisted Rock, have utilized their services on multiple projects and they are always quick to respond, professional and honest. They say what they are going to do and then they simply do it, all for the quoted amount. The best part is their attention to detail is second to none. They do not cut corners and they take great pride in their product and the great company that they have created. We highly recommend Busy Beaver and we will gratefully continue to work with them as good partners in industry are hard to find. We do not take recommending other companies lightly. Busy Beaver is one of those rare companies that values high standards and lasting relationships. Thanks Francois & Christina!!!

Back deck replacement

Our back deck of 25 years finally gave up. We hired Busy Beaver because they got such good reviews. In reviewing the site, Francois (the owner) asked a lot of really good questions that I hadn’t thought of. When the work started, the workers were prompt, efficient, friendly and dedicated. A special shout out to Noel who did the actual work. He was nothing short of a sensational craftsman. Equally, Brady, the lad that took away the junk and delivered the lumber, was super friendly. Francois was there most days to discuss refinements. In short, I have no hesitation recommending this outfit.

Deck Build - Very Happy Customer

I hired Busy Beaver to: demolish & haul away a 30 year old deck/gazebo & build a new composite deck & aluminum railing. The reason I hired Busy Beaver was because of their high rating on HomeStars, a recommendation from a neighbour & the demeanour & professionalism of the company owner Francois. I interacted with many of their team members: Christina, Noel & Brady and every one of them was exceptional. The demolition and construction of the new deck was completed in just 1 week with the railing installed a week later. The contract was fixed price with no additional costs. I cannot say enough about this company. Cristina & Francois, thanks for a great job; you can always use me as a reference.

Hello Jim, thank you very much for the amazing review. We all enjoyed working with you as well and everything on the job went so smoothly. What a transformation from something that was no longer functional, to something that is now maintenance free. Glad you are happy with everything and the way it turned out.

Stands behind their work!

Busy Beaver built our composite deck with clear glass aluminum railing back in August of 2006. The deck has been wonderful and low maintenance. However, this August we noticed our glass pane had slipped. We contacted Busy Beaver to inquire about a repair. Within two weeks Francois was at the house and repaired our railing immediately. 13 years later and under no warranty Busy Beaver stood behind their work!

Fence & Deck Build

Francois and his team were very professional and are very good at what they do. We had two fences, a large deck, and a pergola built and it all turned out beautifully. The only drawback is that once the build was underway we spoke mostly with the on-site team, as Francois was busy at other project sites. It would have been nice to see him on site more, but I understand it's a busy season and hard to be at all projects all of the time. His team was very easy to work with, however, and communicated well. I would recommend Busy Beaver to others.

Hello and thank you for your great review, we appreciate your kind words. We are sorry that you feel Francois was not around on the site more often, but unfortunately during the season he has to spread his time throughout all of the jobsites, as well as delivery material when our crews need something, and do quotes for new potential customers....he is a very Busy Beaver. He does however try his best to visit every jobsite daily, so there is a chance you might have missed him on his quick pass through. The crews that work for us are highly skilled and very knowledgeable in outdoor carpentry, and are also there to answer any questions or discuss any changes throughout the construction process. Francois has full confidence in them dealing with our customers, and everything discussed is always brought to Francois attention via phone conversation or when Francois in onsite.

We appreciate your feedback

New deck and fence

Project couldn't have gone any better! Great, positive experience throughout from initial quote to pre-job consultation and communication to execution and clean up. Very pleased with final product. Quote was laid out simple and walked through and costs came in as quoted. Will recommend BB in high regard going forward to anyone asking about fence and decking.
