Exterior Design & Renovation

We can cover the biggest areas of your exterior design and renovation including decks, fencing, concrete and driveways, windows and doors, stucco and stone, and garages. We’ll help you to renovate, care for, and maintain the outside of your home to help you get the most out of your investment and boost your home’s curb appeal.
What type of material should I use for my outdoor deck?
You should choose a material based on the following factors:

  • How you want your deck to look
  • Your budget
  • The best material for Saskatoon and Calgary climates
  • Usage and durability expectations

We can work with you to find the best material for your needs based on the above factors.

What are the benefits of a concrete driveway over an asphalt driveway?
A good quality concrete driveway can last a lifetime with little to no maintenance, while asphalt driveways require regular sealing to prevent age-related cracking. A concrete driveway will cost you much less in the long-run.
How do I know if the windows in my home need to be replaced?

Pay attention to these 5 indicators to see if the windows in your home should be replaced:

  • Moisture, condensation, or fog in between the glass panes of your window can indicate a sealing failure.
  • Faded spots on your carpet and furniture could indicate that your windows might need a low-emissivity glass to block the sun’s harmful rays
  • Drafty windows are a sign that you need a higher Energy Rating (ER) to increase the energy efficiency of your windows and help your home regulate its temperature, especially in the cold Canadian climate
  • Difficulty opening or closing windows could mean parts are breaking down
  • Rotting and peeling around the window frame requires a better seal
How often does a garage door need to be inspected?
You should do a self-inspection of your garage door once a month by simply opening and closing it to ensure there are no strange sounds and that everything is working smoothly. If something seems wrong, give us a call for troubleshooting and maintenance!
Does stucco or stonework fade over time?
You may experience minimal fading due to sun oxidation over time. However, most finishes on these products are resistant to fading and help to maintain their appearance.

Roofing

If your roof is in need of maintenance or an entire rebuild, we’ll restore it to look its best! We provide professional maintenance including repairs for shingles, eavestroughs, cladding, and soffit and fascia. We can also do entire overhauls including new roofs, cladding, soffit and fascia, and eavestroughs that have reached the end of their lifetime.
What are the best type of shingles for my roof?
There are many different types of shingles from wood to metal to asphalt, and many more! It’s important to consult with a professional about which type will be best for your roof. Factors to consider include your climate, the slope of your roof, overall cost, material weight, colour variety, and maintenance requirements.
What is a drip edge and do I need one?
A drip edge is a metal piece that’s installed at the edges of your roof to help control the flow of water and protect underlying roofing components. If you have a gap between your roof and eavestrough, or your roof is under 6/12 pitch, we would recommend you have a drip edge installed.
Why does one side of my roof seem to wear down faster than the other?
The slope of your roof that faces south will typically wear down faster because of the greater exposure to sun that it receives. Over time, UV rays and weather elements will wear down most roofing materials.
What is a roof ice & water membrane?
This membrane underlayment stops water from passing through the roof system into the home. As ice builds up on a roof slope, usually in unheated areas, this can form an ice dam that doesn’t allow moisture to properly drain. The ice and water membrane should be installed far enough up the roof slope to cover the first few feet of heated space.
Can new roof be installed over old shingles?
You shouldn’t install new shingles over top of old ones. This can cause unusual shapes on your new roof and it can potentially void the warranty on your new shingles. It can also stop professionals from being able to inspect underneath the old product for rot, deterioration, or other issues that can turn into much larger problems later on.

Interior Design & Renovation

Renovations are the key to creating the home you want. Whether it’s painting, drywalling, custom carpentry, or renovations in your kitchen, basement, or bathroom renos, we’re here for you! We want to help your home reach its full potential! Kitchen and bathroom renovations can help give a room a modern look and greatly increase your home’s value! A fresh coat of paint goes a long way to refresh a room for you to enjoy or to get your home ready to sell.
How often should I paint my house?
Depending on your climate and the quality of the previous paint job, experts recommend that you paint your home every 5-10 years.
Is drywall adhesive worth the expense?
Aside from adhesive, screws are most commonly used for drywall. While screws will hold the drywall tight in a small area, you can use adhesive to attach and hold an entire section in place. You can use less screws than adhesive, but adhesive creates a stronger bond to the drywall than screws do. If lumber shrinks or shifts, or something were to bump the surface, a screw could pop loose. Adhesive adds shear strength, isn’t affected by moisture and changes in temperature, and reduces the potential for bowing and sagging.
Is particle board or plywood better for kitchen cabinets?
Both materials have their strengths and there are different types and grades of each material. Plywood is composed of thin sheets of wood that are glued together whereas particle board is made up of tiny wood particles held together with adhesive. Many people believe that plywood cabinets are studier, but both are quite durable and make good-quality cabinets. If well-cared for, a high-density particle board could last even longer than plywood!

Particle board is less expensive and has impressive dimensional stability that won’t warp due to temperature fluctuations, but it isn’t fully moisture resistant and can swell if unfinished edges come into contact with moisture. It’s recommended that you seal all areas of the cabinet if they aren’t already. Plywood is more resistant to dents and scratches, holds glue joints better, weighs less, and has better constructive longevity because it can hold screws and fasteners better.

How much does it cost to finish a basement?
Depending on the size of your space and what you’re looking to add, the cost can range significantly. We would be happy to provide a quote upon request.
What fixtures should I consider for my bathroom renovation that will save me money in the long-term?
Installing water-efficient fixtures such as a dual-flush toilet or a universal shower tap can help to control water temperature and pressure. These fixtures can help you save on water consumption, because the less water you use, the more you can save on your water and heating bills.

Why doesn’t my shower head doesn’t have the same pressure that it used to?
If the water pressure within the rest of your home is good, the reduced pressure could be caused by the shower head itself. You can check by unscrewing the shower head to see if the water flow is better when it’s removed. If it is, the shower head likely needs to be cleaned or replaced. If this doesn’t solve the problem, call a professional to evaluate your water pressure.
What are the benefits of getting a low flush toilet?
Low flush toilets use much smaller amounts of water as compared to the older models, which can help you to save money on your water bills.
Why has the water from my kitchen tap turned to a dribble while all my other taps are working normally?
If just one tap isn’t working, this is most likely an issue with the aerator being plugged or needing to be replaced.
What should I do if there’s water continually dripping from my ceiling, and my taps and bathtub aren’t running?
If a leak isn’t slowing down or seems to be getting worse, it could be an issue with a water supply line. Immediately shut off your main water valve and call a professional to inspect the issue.
What should I do if my drains are draining slowly?
We recommend minimal use of harsh drain cleaners because often these don’t completely solve the problem and can degrade the pipes or affect the water supply. Use a more natural drain cleaning product or consult a professional to ensure your drains are clear!
