Deck & Stone patio with Landscaping

Thank you Iron Owl for building me the deck of my dreams!! After having many renovations done to my house, this was by far the smoothest experience.
Upon meeting Justin, everything was explained in detail, from the tear-down to the build. Throughout the process, any ideas I shared were incorporated with ease and patience. Justin himself thought of many ideas that elevated the design.
The build went absolutely perfect and even my neighbours were impressed with the job done (and how tidy the site was kept each day!)
I highly recommend Iron Owl and I look forward to planning more projects with them in the future.

New deck and patio

We wanted a bit of a Las Vegas pool vibe in our back yard. Iron Owl delivered! Justin listened to our ideas, explained our material options, and gave us a detailed estimate which was in line with the other estimates we received. The difference was that Iron Owl appeared to have a higher level of attention to detail and craftsmanship. It didn't take long to realize our hunch was correct. They always showed up on time and kept our yard tidy when they left. The quality of workmanship was high on the large and small details; I even saw them use a square to line up deck screws! I feel like the deck is basically indestructible, and we could park a car on our patio. We wished we would have hired them sooner; they couldn't start until August, and as fast as they completed the project summer was about over. 2020 summer can't come fast enough.

Back yard deck

We are thrilled with our new deck. The planning process with Justin was very corroborative. We weren't exactly certain of the vision of what we wanted so Justin provided guidance and suggestions to coach us along as we worked through the process. The finished product is larger than our previous deck yet it also opens up the backyard at the same time. Justin is hands on with the construction and takes extreme pride in his work and is very meticulous and precise ensuring that everything is top notch. Iron Owl is a first class family business we'd be please to work with again.

Front yard patio

Thank you, Justin and Logan, for the nice patio you built for us. From the moment we met Justin we knew he is the right guy for our project. His attention to details and care for our yard won our trust. The project was very well planned and the execution was perfect. The quality of work and professionalism is what we appreciated at Iron Owl. You can see the difference when a contractor owns the company and cares about his clients. We are very happy with the result and we can’t wait to enjoy our new patio this summer.

Front deck and planter boxes

We were very pleased with the work recently completed by Iron Owl. The project is in a very visible front yard in a highly-trafficked neighbourhood. We needed quality work beyond what we could do ourselves, and Iron Owl delivered.

Right from the very beginning when we were seeking quotes, Justin himself visited to understand our concept. By grasping our vision, he was able to provide improvement ideas and alternatives, which made our project better before the first shovel hit the ground. He did not push any particular solution and left all decisions to us, and was able to provide solid reasoning behind his suggestions. We especially liked that the person thinking through the project with us would also be executing; many of the larger outfits send an estimator that won't actually be leading the construction crew.

When it came time to actually execute the project, Justin and his team worked in a diligent and well communicated timeline, keeping us regularly up to date. They kept a very tidy work site (in a somewhat challenging, tight spot), which was important given this work was done in plain view in our front yard. All of our neighbours remarked on how nice they were during the day, and how careful they were of those around the work site. Justin works with a small crew, which means it doesn't get done overnight, but it also means you have a chance to make key choices along the way as challenges and ideas come up. Justin kept in regular touch with us by whatever was the most convenient way for us - e-mail, phone, whatever was needed in the moment. When weather interfered, Justin was very clear with how the schedule would change. No excuses or wondering what was up; we were always well informed, and very supportive of his choices, which were always grounded in making the project as good as it could be.

The end product exceeded our expectations, and frankly compared to other similar projects I've helped with or observed, the construction is bomb-proof and built for the long term. On top of that, the craftsmanship around the small details separates Iron Owl from the pack. There were many opportunities to take simple shortcuts, and instead they delivered a high-quality project that they can be proud of, and that we are thrilled to share with our friends and neighbours.

Deck

Justin and his team built a new deck for me last summer. Justin is, hands down, the best contractor I have ever dealt with. He is creative, takes the time to answer questions throughout the project and his quality of craftsmanship is exceptional. I would, without hesitation recommend him. Thanks Justin!

Fence build

Justin was not only professional, but one of the only contractors who showed up when he said he would and on time! He went above and beyond in the quoting process, showing us different options, as we didn’t want just a standard fence.

He made the whole process very easy, and the end result is amazing. I couldn’t recommend him more! We will definitely be using him again in the future.

Small project, but not treated that way

Our deck needed replacing. We did our due diligence and got three quotes. When we met Justin, I said to my husband "I hope his quote comes within ballpark of others, because I really want him to do it"... happily he was not only ballpark, but more reasonable than the "budget" guy. You know immediately that Justin takes great pride in his work. Even though this was a pretty basic deck, his creativeness shines through. Excellent workmanship, quality of product, no shortcuts, sensible advice. In short, I would have no problem at all hiring Justin (and Logan) again for other projects. They were professional and respectful of the property. Highly recommend.
