“Jameswood did a great job of our original major house renovation. We had no hassles and were on budget and on time. We were very happy with the staff and the results. That was about 8 years ago. 3 years later we decided to finish some of the basement that we had not renovated. No problems. On time and on budget. That is pretty good. This year we decided to switch our dining room and living room around requiring some cosmetic changes and re paint some of kitchen cupboards that had worn. This was a very small job but important to us. We asked Jameswood to help and they fit it in with no problems. I think it is fantastic that we can always call for some help even after all major renovations were done. No problems recommending them."

“My husband and I hired Jameswood Homes last year to build a home on our acreage. As anyone who has built a home knows, this is a long process and can be very stressful at times. I am happy to say Jameswood Homes was a pleasure to work with. They are dependable people who really do care about making the customer happy. In fact, we actually looked at them more like “friends” than just dealing with a business. Our home is really beautiful inside and out. The quality of workmanship was excellent and we are both extremely happy with the final project! I would highly recommend Jameswood Homes for any project you may have large or small. They take pride in their work and care about the people they are working for, what more could you ask?”

“We used Jameswood for our first big renovation in 2000. We did not hesitate to hire them again when we were ready to do our next project. We put an addition on to the back of our house. It gave us a new master bedroom with an ensuite and a laundry room in the basement. Not to forget our new back door and porch. The Jameswood staff were always professional. They kept on budget. They found the people to take care of special features we requested. We would not hesitate to hire them again.”

“I had a basement reconstruction that was completed by Jameswood Homes in Calgary. Don James, and his colleagues working with him were knowledgeable, flexible and understanding when difficulties arose. I say reconstruction because there were many structural problems identified including the need to reinforce the support beams and replace the external basement walls due to holes. This took me significantly over budget but I am now secure in the knowledge that my home is structurally sound and the likelihood of problems in the near future has been all but eliminated. Everyone at Jameswood is professional in their behaviour, open, friendly and they attempted to explain clearly each step or this very interesting journey. Their work is at the top of the class, and my resulting basement living space is beautiful. I would recommend that anyone seeking a renovation company seriously consider Jameswood Homes.”

“8 Years ago, major renovation on existing 40 year old house. Quality of work was excellent. More important, on budget and on time. Doesn't get better than that. I felt they were very realistic up front on what we could and could not do and how it would affect costs. This upfront work, even before the work started, contributed to the over all success of project. I felt other contractors pulled their estimates out of thin air. A few years later we finished rest of basement off, again with no issues. This year they came back and touched up a few areas that had normal wear and tear and the place looked new again -- small job but they fit it in. Overall we are very pleased and would recommend them.”

“Jameswood Homes has completed two major renovation projects for us: building a woodworking shop onto our house and doing a complete gut and rebuild of the basement. The workmanship was exceptional in both cases. What's more, since they finished the work they have willingly provided us with advice and recommendations whenever we have asked them. When we had a water leak, which had nothing to do with Jameswood's work, I emailed and even though the owner of the company was on holiday he arranged for someone to come out, survey the damage and suggest a plumber who could remedy the situation. The paperwork from Jameswood was always easy to understand and complete. Any changes we requested were documented via change orders and the cost of the changes was made clear to us, Jameswood employees understood what we wanted and made suggestions as to how changes could make the renovation more functional for us. For example, the framer suggested we realign a doorway so it would be easier to move appliances when they eventually needed to be replaced. On the latest renovation we worked with Jameswood through an online program, which was very effective and kept everyone in the loop. We went over budget on both projects but we did it with our eyes open and we understood exactly where the extra costs came from, The only downside of working with Jameswood was that they are often busy with a number of jobs and, because of the need to juggle scheduling, the work on both of our jobs took substantially longer than anticipated. If you are looking for the least expensive way to get a job done you will find companies who work more cheaply. If you want a company that does excellent work and stands behind its work you won't go wrong with Jameswood.”

“I will disclaim that I have a professional relationship with Jameswood and have worked with them for years. I recently was fortunate enough to have them work on a project for my home. Don and his team did a great job building something unique for my family that they had never done before. Theirs skill on the tools and passion for creation really shown through on the finished product. I would recommend Jameswood Homes to anyone looking for high quality, professional work done on their homes.”

“Not only does Jameswood deliver an excellent finished product, working with them made us comfortable and confident in how the construction process unfolded. Their expertise really shows both in the management of the project itself as well as in delivering a personal touch that made us feel that we always knew the project was being handled properly.”
