Major Home and Kitchen renovation

We have just finished a major renovation using Frank, Brent, Maria and Stuart at Kurmak Builders and couldn't have been more impressed or more pleased with the results. My wife and I have undertaken major renovations before with other builders and have had mixed experiences in the past but I have to say I couldn't have been more impressed with Kurmak's professionalism, their attention to detail and their communication skills.

Kurmak use a communication tool called Buildertrend which allowed us to sign off on all materials, see a real time picture of their overall schedule, track progress, track costs and overall stay 100% connected with the Kurmak team (and their sub-contractors) throughout the whole process. The communication could not have been better. In the end the project came in on budget and two weeks early.

The scope of this project was large. Kurmak replaced our whole Kitchen and lighting, re-furbished our fireplace, flattened our knockdown ceilings, carpeted our upstairs and replaced our flooring with wide-plank oak flooring throughout the 1400 sq.ft. main floor. We chose to remain in the house throughout all of this work and Kurmak, and their sub-contractors, were incredibly respectful and accommodating throughout the whole experience.

If we were to do any work in the future I would look to Kurmak first and my wife and I would recommend them highly to anyone else considering a home renovation.

Renovation of a bungalow built in 1958 (kitchen, two bathrooms, new boiler and hot water tank, air exchange system , plus 'refresh' of other rooms on main floor0

We interviewed seven contractors choosing to request renovation outlines from four companies. We ultimately chose Kurmack Builders because of the level of detail provided in their proposal, the clear focus on safety, and the number and quality of the references they provided. Now that the renovation is complete, we can confirm we made the right choice. Frank and his team were exceptionally personable. It was evident throughout the renovation process that Kurmack was eager to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with the customer and provide a quality product. We felt well informed as a result of the regular contact we had with our site and project managers (Brent and Kyle) and knew Frank was always available if needed. Kurmack's use of 'Buildertrend' was an unexpected bonus. The assistance we received from our designer (Maria) was integral to the realization of our bungalow's amazing facelift. The improved appearance and function of our home will enhance our lives for many years to come.

Renovations

We renovated our kitchen and living room. Kurmak Builders was a great choice to work with. Their emphasis is on quality, value, and communication. Their ability to build good relationships with vendors and trades in the industry has enabled them to hire high quality craftsmen. They always demonstrated concern for our needs and were very responsive to changes throughout the project. Our house held a few surprises for them (and us) and these were handled with great care and concern for our home now and in the future. We are so happy with the results and are happy and relieved we chose to work with Kurmak. All of the things that are important to us were met and exceeded with Kurmak: such as quality, value, respect, communication, responsiveness, creativity and genuine concern for our needs.
We will definitely hire Kurmak again for any/all renovations in the future.

From start to finish, the professionalism, attention to detail, courtesy and respect displayed, made it a pleasure to do business with Kurmak. The project turned out beautifully, just as we had envisioned. The design created - when other contractors said it could not be done, was outstanding. We could not be happier with the result of all the hard work. We would definitely call on them again!

Basement

Kurmak was a pleasure to work with from initial meeting to final delivery. They took the time to answer our questions and quickly resolved the few issues that arose along the way. We began this rennovation when my wife was 6 months pregnant. They were highly considerate of our "hard" timeline and delivered an amazing basement ahead of schedule and on budget! Everything was done to quality. I would hire Kurmak back in a heartbeat to do other work in my home. Frank, Kyle, and Brent were awesome.

Basement and Kitchen repairs and renovations

We had a problem with our house lifting due to the swelling of the clay underneath it, which caused some ugly cracks and buckling in our drywall on both levels. We attended a Home Expo in Calgary and spoke to several renovation contractors. Frank from Kurmac Builders visited our home and we felt confident right away. Frank arranged for surveyors to determine where in the house and how much it had shifted as well as obtaining a soil analysis from under the house (things that should have been done originally when we built). Through consultation with a Structural Engineer he put a plan in place to remove the drywall in the basement and cut down the wall that was constructed too tight underneath the main beam. He then devised a way to allow the wall to float with any further expansion. My wife took this an an opportunity to renovate her kitchen and upgrade the flooring and counters and also put a steam shower in the basement. This work was all completed to our satisfaction under budget. Their employees were excellent to deal with and went to great pains to keep construction dust to a minimum and cleaned up after all sub contractors. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody considering a home renovation.

Bathroom renovation

3 bathrooms were renovated completely existing fixtures, tub and floors removed and replaced. A number of add on requests were handled extremely efficiently as work progressed. The work quality from all contractors was first class. The Kirmak management team was professional and responded to all requests quickly and efficiently. We have another project we want done and we will definitely have them handle the work

Bathroom, basement, main floor renovation

We moved into a partially renovated home that needed quite a lot electrical, plumbing and finishing work.

Kurmak and their contractors were wonderful to work with. We were always informed of any issues that arose and received professional, timely advice from the Kurmak team. There was always someone working on the project and it was completed within a reasonable timeframe.

We felt Kurmak was honest and transparent and would certainly recommend them for renovation projects.

Main floor renovation and addition of loft.

We are extremely happy with our decision to go with Kurmak Builders for our home renovation. We truly can not believe how they transformed our home of 20 years into such a beautiful and functional space. The team at Kurmak listened to our vision for our home and then offered constructive feedback and suggestions. Together with their team of professionals plans were drawn up and our list of wishes for our home became reality. The 3D rendered perspectives and the architectural drawings were greatly appreciated and helped ensure everything turned out exactly how we envisioned it!
Our renovation included our kitchen, nook, living room, powder room, front entry, stairway, bonus room and ensuite in the master bedroom. Plus it included the addition of a loft area in the two storey foyer. Throughout the renovation our family of five continued to live in the home and Kurmak was very accommodating. They provided us with a temporary kitchen sink and made sure the work areas were kept clean and safe throughout the entire project.
We enjoyed working with the various professionals at Kurmak Builders. Each team member was professional and brought their own expertise to their role. We valued the feedback and suggestions each of them offered. When the unexpected occurred and issues popped up, they were dealt with quickly and professionally. Kurmak Builders works very well as a team. We found out very quickly into our renovation that they truly are all about customer service and ensuring their customer is happy with the work being completed.
We were also impressed with the various trades Kurmak Builders chooses to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting down with Prestige Custom Millwork to redesign our kitchen; the transformation of our kitchen space is amazing. We are also very happy with the custom millwork completed by Cedro Fine Woodwork in the living room and office area. The workmanship is fantastic and the custom pieces add functionality and aesthetically to our living spaces. All the trades people were very respectful and professional; each did their part to make our renovation a success. We couldn't be more thankful for all the care and effort that went into our home renovation project.
Our renovation was completed on time and met, if not exceeded, each and every one of our expectations. We have already recommended Kurmak to others and will continue to do so. Thanks to the entire Kurmak team for their integrity, professionalism and friendship throughout our project. We miss having you in our home but are so pleased to be living in and enjoying our newly renovated spaces.
