Started well, ended in disaster

I have used Colin at the Pine Nuts several times in the past, and have had an overall decent experience. Communication was always slow and you quite often had to hound him to get an answer or update on the status of the project, but his work was well done, and he was pleasant to work with. That was for my first two projects. On my third project, Colin got half way through and just disappeared. I have sent repeated texts, emails, calls etc., but got no response at all. I threatened legal action and got a little response and then he disappeared into the woodwork (no pun intended) and wouldn't respond in any way. Be cautious if you choose, if you get good Colin, you will be happy, but if you get the other one, you will regret your decision.

Kitchen Renovation

We had original kitchen from 1980`s which looked tired and clapped out appliances. Colin and crew renovated the whole kitchen area except the flooring which we had done a couple of years before. They also replaced some original bookshelves in the adjoining area.
It was a good job, great guys to deal with and we really enjoy our kitchen.
The project was completed within the time and budget we agreed with Colin.
Only one area that was a bit frustrating at times was communications, which could have been a bit better at times, to respond a bit faster to emails or texts, though we appreciated that there were changes going onto the business at the time. We have done a lot of renovations and this is common to many other contractors we have dealt with.
Overall Colin and Mark were great to deal with and did a good job for us, which we were pleased with and are still pleased with.

Outdoor Shed

The Pine Nuts built our company an insulated outdoor shed to house a water system we installed for a client on an acreage outside of Calgary. The shed was built precisely to our specifications, and delivered and installed within the timeline laid out. The quoted price was the invoiced price. The Pine Nuts was easy to do business with!

Amazing Kitchen Renovation

Over one year ago Colin and the crew completed our kitchen renovation and hands down this is the best renovation work we have EVER had done. Colin provided clear and prompt communication from start to finish; the completed work was amazing; the work crews were great to deal with and the quality of the work excellent. May be most importantly - when the dust is settled, the bills paid and kitchen has been used for a year we still think Colin and the Pine Nuts crew are worth a 10/10 rating.

Main Floor Reno

2nd time using Colin and The Pine Nuts. Had an unexpected main floor water leak that required a full floor replacement. After talking with Colin and our previous discussions, we ended up doing a full main floor reno - entire floor replacement, removed an office, and replaced countertops in the kitchen.

As with before, work was great and completed on time and on budget. My biggest issue with contractors is getting "surprises" at the end - this didn't happen.

We're already looking at phase 3 and we'll be calling Pine Nuts to get the work done.

Kitchen Renovation, Mudroom and Bathrooms

If you’re looking for a trustworthy, down to earth and general up and up kinda guys, then Pine Nuts is your team. We first got to know about Pine Nuts through the HomeStars website and had engaged them to provide a competitive quote on a massive renovation that we were considering for our older home. Pine Nuts came through with the most competitive quote and of course Colin’s demeanour made the choice really easy. However, we abandoned the project when we saw our current home in the market. We asked for Colin’s help again, but this time it was to update our kitchen and re-design some areas of the house for better functionality. Both Colin and Mark worked on our home. They were flexible with their schedules in order to meet our work and family needs, especially since both my husband and I work from home and have three active boys. We wanted to maintain the style of our kitchen yet have it updated with a more contemporary look and functionality. Colin came through with a design that was just stellar. Colin and Mark put forward some really innovative suggestions and throughout the process ensured that we were engaged with every important decision. They were also really flexible to help us out on some other unexpected issues with our bathrooms, suggesting some really good solutions and then helping us to resolve. Since completion, we’ve had nothing but compliments about the updates we’ve done to the home. We are so pleased with our new home, and to top it off have widen our circle of close friends to include the Pine Nut gang.

Mud Room Rennovation

My wife and I grew tired of our basic builder grade mud room as it lacked function and appeal. As our second child had just arrived this really amplified the problem for us. We needed the room to be much more functional and more efficient use of the limited space. We met with numerous contractors after getting an idea of what we wanted to do with the space. Colin was real a step above all the rest when it came to design detail and feedback, his prices were very much in line with others we met with. Couple that with his great home star reviews and it was a no brainer to give him the business.

Throughout the whole process Colin was very receptive to our ideas and worked closely with us through various iterations on the design. When the product finally arrived we were very impressed with the craftsmanship, attention to detail and the finished product. I would highly recommend Colin and the Pine Nuts to anyone who is thinking of a wood or cabinetry project. Can only assume the attention to detail would flow through to larger renovation projects as well.

Custom pantry design and install -- highly recommended

The owner, Colin, was fantastic to work with and has true pride of workmanship. We got 3 quotes for the job - Pinenuts was competitively priced and his work is all in-house customed constructed using quality materials! Colin listened to what my vision was and designed it, then delivered it to a T. There was a small flaw in the paint spraying discovered on install day and Colin immediately corrected it without hesitation, which I really appreciated. Colin is honest, hard working, really personable and I happily recommend Pinenuts to all my friends and coworkers.

Quality of work apparent

We did a small bar for the man cave. The quality of work was great. Colin was very pleasant to deal with. His pricing was very competitive as well - great to get quality at a good price.

Kitchen renovation

This summer we did a full kitchen renovation on our "new to us home". This is the second to-the-studs kitchen renovation we have done with The Pine Nuts. We are vary happy with the results once again! Colin, Mark, and Bob were great to work with. Mark always kept the worksite very clean which was wonderful for our toddler and cats. Our kitchen looks great, but even more important, functions better for our family.
