I am writing this testimonial Excalibur Custom Homes and Gary Richardson.

I wanted to update my old kitchen in my condo. Gary had to work in a confined space, work within hours that would not offend my neighbours and get rid of the materials that were no longer required in an orderly fashion.

The work was carried out professionally and efficiently. Gary was able to resolve issues such as an uneven cement floor with tiles that transitioned at different heights and wiring that had to be hidden due to cement walls and floors.

Gary came up with the idea of adding lighting by building and installing a bulkhead and adding lighting into glass doors in the cupboards.
The work was done professionally, the apartment was left clean and no one would have known the construction took place.

If you are looking for renovation work to be done professionally and without problems, I highly recommend Gary and his company to do that work.

I am writing this testimonial Excalibur Custom Homes and Gary Richardson because of the professional work he and his staff did building our three thousand square foot combo two bedroom suite and three bay garage and office.

Gary takes great pride in the work that he and his workers do. From start to finish Gary was involved and came up with many suggestions for improvements.

The following are examples:

  • how the land could be better utilized for the building which added value to our property by taking the soil and building an additional road on our property for storage
  • Putting in a storage space above the two garages
  • Due to the land usage suggestion we did not have to install a pump for our sewage system but could use gravity feed instead
  • installed a cedar mantle that really finished the fireplace and suggested sconce lighting for the great room that finished the room with an extra touch
  • saved us substantial money with suggesting the garage and house get painted by the same painter
  • The third garage was built with a high ceiling and is used to store a bobcat and excavator.

When they installed the overhead fan for the stove it was not up to Gary's standard and he had them come back and redo it. He did this with the drywallers and painters if the finishes were not done properly and up to his standards.

Gary's detail for finishing is reflected in the suite, garage and office.

Gary coordinated the trades to come in one after another. When they were supposed to show up they did. As you know, trades come and go when they want. Gary's good working relationship with them ensured they were prompt and efficient and in the end, saved us money.
Gary would come up with suggestions whereby we could do some of the work and save on the cost of the building. The finished product was first class. Everyone who has gone through the building comments on the finish and how great it looks.

We have no problem in recommending Gary for any building project whether it is a commercial building or a home. His workmanship speaks for itself.
