The owner of this business probably knows nothing or very little about construction. This guy would waste your time, would hire hacks (unqualified tradesmen) to do his work and would fail almost all of the inspections. I contracted him to renovate my basement and it took him 7 months (November 2022 to May 2023) to complete my basement (for context, most contractors complete basement renovations in 8-12 weeks and the size of my basement was less than 700sqft). He refused to provide me with a contract
that would clearly state the timeline for the project and I should have realised at this point that he had no clue what he was doing. He couldnt even provide me with a proposed layout drawing of the basement.
Then the painful process of construction began. There were many weeks when no tradesman would show up on my site yet I made it clear to him that I needed the work to be completed as soon as possible. When he eventually did call for inspection a lot of the work he did failed inspections.
My home failed a lot of inspections because this guy does not understand many of the building requirements/code. For example: The mechanical room was required to be smoke sealed, but he left a lot of gaping holes around the mechanical room. He used insulation (as a smoke seal) to cover up penetrations in the ceiling of the mechanical room. All of this led to multiple failed inspections and I had to hire someone at additional cost to come fix the issues. By the way he abandoned my project after the failed inspections and went on vacation for over two weeks and told me if I couldn't wait for him to return from vacation then I should get someone else to fix the issues and pay extra for that.
Another thing that failed inspection was the flashing he installed above my side entrance door. For weeks after this failed inspection, he refused to show up to fix this issue and told me that if I cannot wait for whenever he is available, I should get another contractor to fix the issue and pay them from my pocket. That is how irresponsible this guy is.
The items in his invoice are overpriced and yet he will use the cheapest and lowest quality materials and he will do the barest minimum. There are many items which he billed for in his invoice which he did not provide: Some of them are listed below:
- He invoiced me $5,000 to provide me with exterior concrete stairs and ended up providing me with wooden stairs that were not even worth $500.
- He invoiced me $1,000 for Inspection fees. All inspections by the City of Calgary are free of charge and hence no payment for inspection is required. You only need to pay for permits but the inspections are free.
- He invoiced me $1300 to repair any damage he did to my siding while installing a side entrance door and properly install the flashing. The flashing was wrongly done, the side entry door was wrongly installed and could have led to water damage. I got another contractor to take out everything he had done and properly install smartboards and flashing to meet the building code and prevent water issues. I paid this contractor separately for this job.
- He was supposed to put an underlay before installing the LVP flooring. He did not do this even though he billed me for it.
Looking back, one of the biggest mistakes I made was making 100% payment to this dude. As soon as the invoice was fully paid, he stopped beig responsive or showing up to my site, I would call him to ask about my project and he would scream at me over the phone and tell me that he was busy and I was disturbing him. There were weeks when nobody would show up on my site to do any work.
This is my personal experience with this dude and his company Design Reno Build. The trouble and heartache I encountered with this guy was not worth it. There are many contractors/builders out there who would deliver much better quality and services and at a lesser price.
I am a fairly new client to Salon Jolie. I love the way the shop is decorated and it feels warm and friendly. The owner is so nice and greets me with a smile and how are you! My stylist Corrine is amazing! I She always listens and seems to know just what my hair needs. My color is always great and my cuts spot on. She also makes me feel so relaxed and the tea is great! I was a bit nervous going to a new Salon after leaving one I had gone to for many years, but the owner, staff and Corrine have made
it so easy.. I would highly recommend Corrine as a stylist and Salon Jolie as a wonderful place to get your beauty on!!
I have had my vehicle detailed by The Finer Details twice now, and they have done an exceptional job each time. I work with dogs, so there is always going to be pet hair in my vehicle when I take it in. When I get it back, it is so clean you would never think an animal had been in it. They are friendly, courteous, and aim to please. I am very satisfied and will continue to take my vehicle to them.
I was a client of Tara Pipella. With three separate concussions and brain injuries I had hoped I could find help here. My life was upside down and I could not make proper decisions. The worst decision I made in my life was going to Pipella law. I feel so dumb. My billing went from $50k to 300k overnight.
When I asked about my billing or even how my file was going I was always told by Tara and Del to trust them. After waiting four long years for mediation I was denied attending by Tara. She had
placed another lawyer Dan Thorn on my file without consent. I never would have hired a lawyer like Dan.
When I refused the weak offer Tara tried to throw me she made it impossible for me to close the file.
Taking me to court, denying files, and just plain refusing cooperation. I am now going to court with my injuries , no not to close my file, but again defend myself against Tara Pipella. I guess she does not like my review. Worst time of my life, infact a nightmare I cannot wake up from.
Great quality work! Brandon and his team are experienced, professional and very personable. I had a front step built by Sunurban. The quality is top notch and it was done quickly. They were very neat and cleaned up their work area perfectly. I highly recommend Sunurban Developments! I have 2 more projects lined up with them!
Randy did a fantastic job replacing my raised deck. After I recieved the quote, he promised to start within a couple of days. He was quick and efficient and even fixed a light fixture for me.
I highly recommend

Peter and James are professional, they know what they are doing and they would make sure no damage will be made when they do their jobs. Excellent service. They are well communicated and efficient! Highly recommend Peter to my friends in the upcoming future. Thank you so much for your help today.
今天Peter幫忙搬家, 非常專業, 動作快, 不會是因為是每小時收費而拖慢動作. 我的傢俱不少, 但Peter 和 James也沒有慢下來, 反而我東西太多的關係而令延誤了他們下一個案子. 十分感激他們.
Wouldn’t recommend if you want a stress free experience… I ordered my dress from them, it came in heavily stained and instead of getting a new one the owner decided to save money and get it dry cleaned. I was told it was good as new and to come and pick it up, I came and it was still stained… I had to drive half way across the city three times , not including when I bought it just to get a dress NOT full of stains. The gas alone was 1/3 the price of the dress. I received $75 to compensate over a
tank of gas and hours and hours of my time wasted…
I have been going to Dr. Rashid Malik, my family physician, for many years. He is very thorough and conscientious. Dr. Malik is soft spoken and easy to talk to. He explains everything in great detail and is pleasant to his patients.
The office is always clean and bright and the girls welcoming and respectful to everyone who enter the clinic.
I have no hesitation in recommending Abbeydale Medical Clinic to my family and friends.
I had the misfortune of having Tonii represent(?) me on an impaired charge.Right up until the day of the trial when she removed herself as my council.The judge.MacDonald was his name allowed Tonii to drop me without any explanation other than her reason wasn't "willy nilly".Being a fan of Tonii,Judge MacDonald assumed I was at fault for her wishing to remove herself.Again no reason was asked or given.The prior court appearance Tonii, without ever consulting with me agreed with the prosecution to
make a new date when the main witness for the prosecution couldn't make it for the second time.At this court date the judge asked Tonii why she was my council when I had been represented by another lawyer from the same firm.Tonii told the judge she was on maternity leave.The judge responded that he had seen her in court a couple days prior.The first lawyer I had was through that same firm Mz.Roulston worked.She represented me through legal aid once.The main witness didn't appear and my council agreed with prosecution to delay proceedings to a new date.She never appeared for me again explaining that the case was too complicated and she couldn't handle it.What changed?My charge took three years to finally end.This has to be the most blatant example of a systematic denial of legal representation ever.Remember Tonii?You betrayed your oath as a barrister and instead of defending me you stabbed me in the back.JUDAS.Misconduct unethical.Should not hold a license.SHAME!
This preschool should be called THEFTHOUSE PRESCHOOL. We paid for both my daughter and son $300 (registration fee) + $1200 (last months tuition) for this concurrent year of 2023/24. We found out shortly after that my husband will be relocated to another country and we will not be staying in Calgary, therefore my children will not be attending this preschool. This is after two loyal years in this preschool for both of my kids and they would not return the $1500 to us. They said it was their policy
and do not do refunds. $1500!!! If they took the registration fee I would have understood, but the fact that they also took the last month and wouldn’t return the money was complete THEFT. The director, Aimedee, is the most unpleasant person to talk to and deal with. She is rude, condescending, and so unempathetic. I have dealt with KIDS U and several other daycares and preschools, who have bent their rules for circumstances not under the parent’s control, yet Aimedee would not even entertain it and refused to let us speak to the owners. As a local business owner as well, I would never be okay taking $1500 for a service I DID NOT PROVIDE - policy or not! The teachers in this place are angels, but I could tell that Aimedee does not treat them well either. The worst part is, the government has discounted tuition for preschools and she wouldn’t even give us the difference. Do you sleep well at night Aimedee and owners knowing you take people’s hard working money for a service you have not provided? Disgusting!
I have moved to this gym 2 months ago. And I have also wanted to change my gym and I finally did it. It's affordable, the staff is amazing and my trainer pushed me to be a better version of myself.
I love this gym and location and the staff.
Thank you for getting me out of my zone Elie I really appreciate you and the staff
All of the services I have tried have been fantastic!
The staff is knowledgeable and professional.
You can tell that they love what they do and do it well.
They are my go to place for care! Highly recommend!
I want to share my experience with dr. Tarun Mehra is honestly the best dentist in Calgary, before I met him I had a job from another dentist that had turned out horrible to the point that I went into depression and felt insecure about how bad my tooth looked and dr. Tarun solved my problem super fast and of the best quality, I highly recommend him from my own experience, he is also very friendly and offers the best service
I have encountered the same atrocious levels of service twice now when dealing with supposed 'customer service' at this store. On both occasions they spoke to me as though I was a piece of dirt on their shoe when making simple requests in a very polite manner, they need to learn some basic communication skills especially for basic customer service skills. Won't go there again.
I contacted Tina to have myself, adult daughter who is legally blind and adult granddaughters eyebrows done, I booked microblade appts. for all of us. Tina was very accommodating since I was visiting my daughter who lives outside Calgary and granddaughter in Airdrie and managed to fit us in together on my trip out there. I have had this done previously in Toronto years ago and is the best thing I have done for myself. Tina was fabulous with all of us, thank you again. We all love our eyebrows!
We visited Merit kitchen with hopes of changing our old and dysfunctional kitchen into a modern looking and far more functional space. Ron was very professional and had many creative idea to help us through the process. We now have a beautiful kitchen with much more useable space and a great space to work in. Having had such a great experience getting our kitchen done we approached him once again with a bathroom that need to be update. Knowing that bathrooms come with many more difficulties he
helped us come up with a design that was both beautiful and functional.
A big thank you to Derek for all of his help with our countertop reno project. We had no idea where to begin. I was referred by a friend at work who had his whole kitchen redone by Derek. After seeing some amazing photos, I gave Derek a call. He was excellent at helping us narrow down what we wanted by asking simple questions in plain language, and the results exceeded our expectations by a mile! We will definitely be using Derek again for our next project. I would recommend him to anyone
I never seen Virginia Newton in any capacity. She was working behind the scenes with WCB writing inflammatory reports about me and doing her best to reduce my benefits. She has really enjoyed the suffering she caused me.

Cole and Kelly did a great job cleaning out all of our vents. They called ahead to let me know that they were on there way to our home, which was so considerate and promptly arrived at our scheduled appointment time. They were friendly and extremely efficient. I will recommend Breathe Clean Alberta to all of my friends and family. I'll be calling them back next year for a service call for sure. Thanks again Cole and Kelly.
Not impressed. The vintage cheese and bacon burger was lacking in seasoning and the Asiago fries were nothing special. I would expect a great burger for fourteen dollars but it was just average. I’d have been happier withA and W.
Amazing service, polite and helpful skin care specialist, affordable pricing, best products available in their clinic.Enjoyed their service.I recommand people looking for skin care to visit this place.Worth spending...
