Orazio is a true craftsman who did a beautiful job rebuilding my driveway and adding a new front stairway. There were some delays but few people understand how complex even a relatively small project can be for a concrete contractor. Weather can have a significant impact on scheduling as you cannot pour concrete in the rain. As well the cement industry in Alberta is basically controlled by 3 huge companies so everyone must buy from them. Right now the cement companies are extremely busy due to all the road construction so can also cause scheduling problems as small jobs are normally lower priority for any ready-mix delivery, leading to further delays for the crew on site. In any event Orazio’s Company Tora Concrete showed up to do the job when two others didn’t even call me back and completed the entire job in 3 days.

Thank you for your highly insightful review, Cliff. I appreciate you sharing the conditions facing contractors, which coupled with the extreme difficulty in finding reliable, skilled workers and the short work season, makes it challenging to always meet clients' timeline expectations. However, clients like you make it all worthwhile.

Met Tim @ Home Show, I had a plan from another landscape company but my sense was they didn’t have the capability to do the job. Twisted Rock were very interested in my project and followed up with me within a couple of weeks. I met with Tim and business partner Paul to review the plan and they came back with a detailed quote quickly. My job started slightly ahead of schedule and worked for 6 days with a full crew every day. All the guys were great, capable courteous and respectful. Site leaders Jeff and Aaron kept me informed throughout the process. I was really impressed with the mechanical equipment they brought in to do the job, all of it company owned so you have security of knowing they’re not here today gone tomorrow. The job is 90% complete at this stage, new sod in front lawn to be completed after driveway is rebuilt in a week or 10 days.

Lone Star installed all gas lines and heater for my new garage. Ryan and his team were very cooperative and great to work with. As well he made some suggestions regarding a gas line for a new gas range I am planning to install as part of a major kitchen renovation.

Derrick was fantastic to work with on this project. I'm a bit of a car guy and I was somewhat specific as to what I wanted. Derrick is a true professional and a master at what he does, always gets back to you promptly with answers to any questions, always followed through on his commitments to me and was always on schedule. His costing was absolutely fair and actually slightly less than competitive quotes I received. The garage he built for me is fantastic, triple wide, heated, insulated and looks awesome. A pleasure to do business with you.
