Siding

Cinl came out and looked at a job of siding my out building they quoted me 14000.00 to do the job we walked through the whole thing. I was told at that time there would be no extras and done in 2-3 weeks. Well one month later they asked for 8000.00 cash only I asked at that time what the rest of the bill was I got the rest owing after they dropped off some siding in boxes that's right not even started siding. Well it was 13000.00 they still wanted I called the RCMP to get there stuff of my property well they took all the siding I payed for with them this is still a ongoing mater now that I am fighting this the price is going up up up so if you have lots of money and like paying 100% more then you are quoted then this is the company for you I just like fair good would be better hope never to see or hear from this company ever again.

Replace failing roof

The roof was replaced quickly. They were professional and cleaned up all the debris. There was barely any interruptions to our day to day happenings. The roof had a fantastic long warranty. I would recommend them.

Extremely unpleasant experience - Flat Roof of Condo Building

After work started CINL informed us that the deck needs to be thicker to meet IKO warranty standards and current building code (CINL had inspected the roof before giving us an estimate), so we did not have a choice, but to accept it (I wonder why they did not check the deck when they were on the roof, and included this extra in the estimate).

They installed an extra layer of plywood on the top of the existing deck (item that was not mentioned in the estimate or contract), and charged us at the rate for "replacing rotten wood". That did not seem fair. This brought the final invoice to 27% increase! No rotten wood/plywood was found anywhere on the roof by CINL. Other contractors quoted a rates of $0.50-$1 /sq.ft. for the extra wood and labour, while CINL wanted to get paid $2/sq.ft (same rate as replacing rotten wood).

We wanted to pay CINL for the extra material and work, but at a proper rate. We reached an agreement through our lawyer (CINL initiated involvement of lawyers by threatening us with a lien) to pay them for the extra work. Right before sending them the payment, CINL changed their mind and decided to go after the full amount they initially asked for.

CINL placed a builders’ lien on our property 60 days after their last work on site (they stated a false date in order to pass the lien). That was a really "nasty" trick. Instead of going to court and fight the lien's validity, we offered them a bit more money, since legal fees were building up quite fast, and they finally accepted to remove the lien.

In the end we end up paying close to the same amount CINL initially asked us for. CINL were very hard to communicate or negotiate with. Their owner kept passing us to his project manager and lawyer.

We hope that the CINL’s workmanship is much better than their customer service and methods of estimating, billing.

The roof was supposed to be completed in 2 weeks. It took CINL a month, and another 3 months dealing with this matter.

roof renovation

They followed up quickly after our enquiry at the home and garden show. This is a family company. They were very competitively priced. They came on time and the workmen were tidy and efficient. This is a company we have recommended to friends considering replacing their roof.
