Stone Cleaning

Homes Looking Good cleaned both my stone driveway and my flagstone patio. We are extremely pleased with the results. What was once dirty, stained and riddled with weeds, is now pristine. The crew was very enthusiastic, friendly, professional and committed to working until the job was completely finished. Liam and Nathan certainly deliver on their promises when they say they can make your stonework look new.

Dear Ms. Joynt, thank you very much for your review. We enjoyed cleaning your back flagstone and front interlock. The back stone work was in need of a cleaning and re-sanding. These surfaces clean-up extremely well due to the abilities of our tools, machines and workers. We are also glad that all aspects of the service were excellent. Again, thank you for choosing Good Looking Homes.

Deck cleaning

The cleaning of the cedar deck using their revolutionary cleaning unit went smoothly. The work was completed on time, workers were very polite and courteous (to the neighbors as well) and the overall work that was performed was outstanding. I would highly recommend the use of their deck cleaning services.

Dear John, thank you very much for the review. Firstly, I would like to mention how nice and well built your Eastern White Cedar deck is. We thoroughly enjoyed working on the deck and were astonished at how amazing it looked when it was fully cleaned. Natural decks are one of the most fulfilling surfaces to clean and maintain. In the Canadian climate, exposed decks take a beating from the elements and it is crucial to clean and maintain them. Again, thank you for choosing good looking homes for your deck cleaning and beautification needs.

Powerwashing and sealing of concrete patio

Good Looking Homes turned back the clock on our concrete patio. We had considered tearing it up, having neglected it for ages, but Liam and Nathan convinced us that it would look good as new after a once over with their power washers. Needless to say we were a little bit skeptical, but the results were nothing short of astonishing. Countless years of grime, gone!

Everyone associated with the company was a pleasure to deal with, especially the workers who clearly take pride in doing a good job. They were very deliberate when moving all of our patio furniture and completed the job in 2 days. Altogether a very positive experience; we won't hesitate to recommend Good Looking Homes to friends and family.

Dear Marie, thank you for the review. We thoroughly enjoyed working on your concrete patio and are glad that we were able bring it back to life. Concrete takes a lot of abuse in the city from a variety of factors. We have found that our specialized tools and liquid de-greasers are able to get most of the dirt and accumulated grime out of concrete. I am glad that you also enjoyed all aspects of the job, specifically our work crews. We train each of work teams to do specific jobs to a high standard. Again, thanks you for choosing Good Looking Homes and enjoy your property for the rest of the summer.

Power wash, seal & fill cracks on walkway & patio

Bottom line: We're satisfied with the work done, and our walk and patio look better but the principals of Good Looking Homes are young and enthusiastic but have some rough edges. Here are some cautions:
1) They sell door to door and say that most of their customers didn't even know that the service they provide is available. Chris estimated our job at $750. When my reaction indicated that that was more than I was prepared to spend, the price dropped to $500 seconds later for the same work. I asked if our patio could be included and the price rose to $600 which I accepted, but the sales experience left me thinking that if I'd protested further, the price might have dropped again. There seemed to be no discipline in their pricing.
2) They had a four day window while we were away to do the job but it was only partly completed on schedule.
3) Our walk and patio consist of three surfaces: cement squares, slate, and brick. The power washing cleaned all three surfaces but seemed to leave some of the slate looser than it was.
In spite of these comments, we are satisfied with the end result for the price paid but would suggest that prospective customers be clear at to price and timeframe. I also would suggest for slate walks that the power washing tool only be used to clear the cracks and not try to clean the slate surfaces.

Company Response

Dear Mr Condliffe, thank you very much for the review. I am deeply sorry that you were not completely satisfied with our company and salesman. In regards to pricing, our company has a standard cost per square foot for different job and material types. However, our salesmen do have some leeway in pricing jobs based on such factors as: size of the job, complexity, mix of patios/decks, materials needed and clients budgets. In regards to your job specifically, we reviewed it with both the sales and operations side. Then it was discussed in our daily sales meeting so that all of our sales staff was brought up to speed on pricing practices. Also, I am sorry that the job was not completed in the window of time that it should have been. As per your slate stones, we discussed the job and material with the work crew. We have cleaned slate and shale-stone on over 20 jobs this year and have great success the majority of the time. We have informed our sales staff to make clients more aware that the results of slate cleanings may vary. However, it appears we were not careful enough and I am sorry for any loosened stonework. I am glad that your enjoyed our service overall but we are concerned that other aspects of the experience were not up to standard. Your feedback and review is very helpful to as as we are a new and rapidly growing company. All of the the points you have made will be used to help our sales and work teams grow successfully. Again, thank your for the constructive review and your valuable time.

Stone Cleaning, deck repair, re-grouting stone, fence painting

The two young owners were very friendly and trustworthy. They did great work but more than that, they did it quickly. We did not have to wait long for them to start the job nor for the last few touch-ups at the end. They came back quickly when we had a few more requests and were very polite and professional. They have found a niche that few other larger companies touch (stone cleaning and grouting, odd jobs etc.) and therefore you get better, faster service.

Dear Blake, thank you very much for the review. We had a lot of fun working on your property and got to further develop our grouting and cleaning techniques. I am glad that we were able to do the job quickly and to your standards. In regards to your grouting, we encountered some unique obstacles as our hardening sand was not initially able to hold one of your loose stones. However, after examining the stone we found it was separating/flaking and were able to repair it and hold it into place. Fully re-grouting your stone-work can be expensive. We have found cleaning it and grouting it with hardening sand is a great alternative that is less costly. Again, thank you very much for choosing Good Looking Homes. Your business is greatly appreciated.

P.S. Say hello to Winston the bulldog for us.

cleaned and coated interlock and painted decks

Nathan and Liam and crew were professional, hard working and completed the job quickly and efficiently. Excellent company to deal with. They cleaned and coated the walkway in the front of the house and the interlock in the backyard. It looks like new. They also painted 2 decks and a porch. I would use this company again and wish more companies had their work ethic.

cleaning stonework, interlock and deck

Liam and Nathan were friendly and informative and helpful when quoting on the business and explaining the benefits. Their workers came when they said they would come and did a fantastic job. The deck and stone looks brand new. I will be giving them a call when i need thier services again. I suspect their business will thrive....

Dear Maureen, thank you for the review. Your project had all three of the core elements of our business: woodwork, stonework and interlock. We are happy we were able to clean and maintain your property for the years to come. It was very important to clean and water-seal your deck as it is so close to a pool. Decks take a lot of damage/wear from water and foliage. It is important to clean and weather-seal them annually in order to help preserve the wood and allow it to naturally gray in colour. Again, thanks for your business and we hope to see you again in the future. Thanks for choosing Good Looking Homes for your home beautification and maintenance needs.

Powerwashing and Repainting 2 Decks

Good Looking Homes is an exceptional group of guys who really care if the job gets done properly. They are efficient and prompt, and, perhaps most importantly, honest. They were first hired to powerwash and repaint our formerly awful back deck. Once we saw what a great job they did, we asked for them to try their hand at our front porch. They offered a very reasonable price for the two jobs, and came back within a day or two after the jobs were completed to make sure they were done properly. When one of the guys noticed that one pillar was not painted perfectly, he promptly got busy correcting the problem -- without me having to ask. My neighbour was so impressed with our decks that she hired them as well. Thanks, Good Looking Homes!
