Deck drawings

I was introduced to Robert by my deck builder. At the time I was already working with another structural designer, but that relationship quickly went south when he became insistent that my builder's construction approach would not meet code and I would therefore not get my permit. So I had to test that contention because my builder insisted that this guy was wrong. And that's where Robert came in. He did new drawings for me, incorporating mine and my builder's wishes, and ensured that more modern construction technology was used all while meeting code. As expected, the city's permit department agreed.

Looking back, when I compare the quality of work and the client service model of my previous guy's versus Robert's, I can honestly say the difference was night and day. I rarely spoke to the first guy and what he produced were a few sketches that now seemed slapped together, outdated, and had scant details.

Robert, on the other hand, is a consummate professional. I was amazed at the level of detail, thoroughness, and thought he put into his work. And he was such a pleasure to work with! It was quite clear to me that he took great pride in his work, which gave me huge comfort. When he puts the Valente stamp on his drawings, you can be assured that they are completed to the highest standards of excellence.

I know this is very high praise, and I don't give it lightly. Robert is truly deserving of it. I'm thankful to my deck builder for the introduction, and I'm very thankful to Robert for saving my project! Muchas gracias Roberto!!

Hi Marija, thank you for taking the time to write this amazing review. I appreciate your comments so much as not every client sees all the time and dedication we put on each project. We make sure that every detailed is considered and the drawings are produced not only to get the building permit but also to have all the information that the builder required. I have seen that a lot of drafters taking on projects for building permit applications cut and paste standard details on their drawings leading to errors and issues at the time of installation. We do not do that as we take the time to detail every aspect of a project. I am glad that we could substitute the concrete piers by metal post and solved all site issues that were not taking into consideration by previous “drafter”. Hope you enjoy your deck right before summer time. Thanks again.

Project - Deck

I contacted Valente Studios about working on permit drawings for a new deck built (second floor). Drawings were done to perfection and been submitted to city with no issues or concerns and did not need any changes on it. I would definitely recommend his services (Valente Cad Services) to friends and others in need. It was a great experience working with him. Will use him again. Best one out there for building permits and more.

We greatly appreciate your kind words Henry. One of the added values of our services is to provide our clients detailed information of all scenarios that might happen once we submit the drawings to the building department so we know what to expect, our knowledge of the different zoning By-laws is quite ample which is key to obtain the building permit faster. It was a pleasure working with you and we truly do hope to hear from you again.

Drawings for a legal second suite

Robert went above and beyond in doing architectural drawings for a legal second suite for my client in Brampton. We took his drawings to the planning department and got the zoning and building permit approved with no changes needed!

Joanne, thank you for the fantastic review. It was a pleasure working with you and your client! I am happy you were able to obtain the building permit and to achieve your client’s vision for the basement apartment. I am so happy that everything worked out. The hallway in the basement was a big and important decision to achieve the maximum floor area allowed for the second unit. Adding the second suite to the house will substantially improve the value of this property. All the best!

Architectural

Robert was extremely professional, conscientious, knowledgeable and resilient in drafting up the architectural and structural drawings for my deck and hot tub in order to secure my necessary zoning and building permits from the city. He was always very accessible, true to his word and stuck to our agreed quote despite several obstacles and set-backs encountered during the lengthy process. I was extremely satisfied with his work and advice and I would not hesitate to use him again for any future projects and would recommend him to others as well.

Thank you Ed for taking the time to write this wonderful review. It was a pleasure helping you with this project. We did encounter a few surprises with the easement and the re-zoning by-law restrictions applied to your property. We overcame this challenge together and created an outdoor area so you can enjoy the hot tub. Do not hesitate to call us again for any future renovations.

Thanks Michael for taking the time to write a concise review. I am glad that we were able to assist you in legalizing and enlarging your existing deck. Also to structurally reinforced the deck that was not properly built. Once the deck is rebuilt I am sure that you will enjoy the spectacular view of the lake along with the swimming pool. Thanks Michael! It was a great project.

Permit Drawings for Porch/Mudroom Enclosure

I contacted Valente Studios about working on permit drawings for re-designing our porch and building an enclosed mudroom. From the moment I met with Robert, he was very interested in understanding what it was that we wanted to do and ensuring that we would have drawings that met those needs. It was a true pleasure to work with him on these drawings as he would offer his recommendations and also attend to our specific needs. We went through a couple of rounds of drawings, but it did not take long to get them ready for submitting to the city. The drawings themselves were incredibly detailed and included all of the necessary design specs for both the city's requirements and for a future builder to work from. Robert worked with us to find ways to save on costs when it came to the actual build, which included using existing footings rather than needing to include new ones. He also informed us that certain specifications would not be required for our project, such as HVAC which provided a cost savings. We also avoided the need to have an engineer stamp the drawings, as Robert personally did the weight load calculations and the city approved his work. Robert's knowledge of building requirements is extensive and this came in handy when needing to make certain decisions before submitting the application to the city. Overall Robert is a great communicator and is always willing to take a call to discuss the details, which I was grateful for. Robert delivered in a short period of time, approx. 3 weeks which helped move the project along. He managed the submission to the city and kept us posted on the status of the approval. I would definitely hire Robert again for future projects.
