Excellent!

I needed a bit of work done in new home as the dining room was in desperate need of a new look. The guys were very punctual and had the work done inside a week which put me at ease due to the other tasks i had to carryout. As well can i point out the rates are very affordable!

Paint and drywall

Jasen did a very average paint job at my place. His quote stated "prep and paint", but in reality that included no prep or very little. I had to remove the light switch plates out for him (and I reinstalled them after) since he flat out refused to remove them when I asked. As soon as he "finished" (he did not finish), he ran out the door, leaving me to reinstall the blinds, as well as leaving a section that was simply not consistent with a professional result, with apparent brush strokes and the previous color still visible through the paint. When I tactfully asked him to protect the surface noting paint splashes on the countertop and on the cupboard doors, he grew dismissive and arrogant and I had to assertively insist that he use a dropsheet. It was overall stressful dealing with him. Of note though, he has an excellent contact who does drywall for him, the guy is named Nick with a Ukrainian last name. Nick is a perfectionist and very pleasant to deal with. When Jasen came to my house to assess the work, I was left with the impression that he was able to do drywall. He is not. Do not let him touch the drywall. Jasen subcontracts drywall and I'm glad he does. It's unfortunate that I couldn't call Nick directly though and I would have preferred to be made aware that the drywall had been subcontracted rather than have a new guy show up that I wasn't expecting. Nick turned out to be a good guy, but I would have preferred to know that he was coming so that it's clear who does what and not a surprise.
To sum up, Jasen seems to have good reviews as a handyman, but I woulnd't recommend him for paint and drywall. He also came across as having an attitude as I asked for normal standards (removing light switch plates, protecting countertop, pointing an area that had been forgotten) and these comments were met with dismissiveness and arrogance. I feel like hiring him to do the job was more stressful than if I had done it myself, plus I was still left with the trouble of taking the blinds up and down the stairs and reinstall them, which is a hassle.

Company Response

I'm a sorry to hear your upset. I indicated that I would return to replace the blinds and touch up the other area you wanted touched up. I had a dr appointment to get to. As for Nick he is an employee that works part time not a sub contractor and I indicated that one of my staff will do the taping.

Cork floor installation

I neede a cork floor installed in a bedroom and closet and was lucky enough to have Jasen with Cairnstone Construction recommended to me. He was able to accommodate my schedule. The quote was very reasonable for the high quality of work and he stuck to it. Jasen is professional and easy to work with.
I'm very happy with the final result and look forward to having the pleasure of hiring Cairnstone Construction in the future.

Pocket Door Repair

Jasen fixed the Pocket Door and the Door Lock and had all the right tools for the job. Very Knowledgeable, tried to keep my costs low by repairing the lock instead of replacing it. Would definitely recommend Jasen to my friends and Family.

Fixing things around the house

I have asked Jasen to fix various things around the house, from plumbing to carpentry, to jack hammering out concrete and filling concrete back in afterwards. Jasen is very responsive with emails and phone calls, and has so far done everything to my complete satisfaction. He is very knowledgeable about home maintenance.

Clinic Renovations

I had a tight time frame and Jasen and his team did all the work on time and very professional. Best thing is that this guy knows the whole system - from my strict permits to the end clean up. Cool, calm and collected, this guy has your best interest in mind and gives you all your options. Jasen is a good guy, has decent skills, and NO attitude.... a pleasure to work with. I totally recommend this guy.

Repairs and Renovations

Cairnstone gave us a clear, detailed estimate. He was knowledgeable, professional, and took the time to fully explain the needs and costs as well as the reasons why. He worked around our schedule, and took the time to ensure the area was cleaned appropriately once the work was completed. I would highly recommend Cairnstone Construction, and already have contacted them for more work! Thanks for all your help- it's greatly appreciated!!

bathroom shower tile replacement

Jasen was professional and did great work. Punctual and efficient with his work. There was a bit of a delay with some of our email communications....guess that is the price for doing good work and being busy.
