    What Our Clients Say

    Craig C. ★★★★★ Travis, Kyle and the rest of the Capital Building Team demonstrated professionalism, honesty, punctuality, great communication and experience throughout every stage of our build. They were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend.Response from the ownerHi Craig, Fantastic to hear from you! We are glad to hear everything is going well & you had a great experience with us. Thanks again, CBC Team suzanne L. ★★★★★ Our project with Capital Building was a demolition of the rear of the house, for a new two-story extension, followed by a reconfiguration and renovation of the existing part of the house. This project lasted almost 12 months and transformed our small and outdated house into a modern, spacious, and well-functioning home.Dean was our building designer, who played a pivotal role in the early stage. Although we had a rough idea of what we wanted to do in the beginning, Dean helped us to test our ideas to the practicality and guided us to alternatives that would work better and more economical to achieve. I see his advice extremely valuable because of not only his knowledge and expertise, but also his easy access to his building team for technical opinions.Dealing with Pierce was smooth and easy. He took care of the contract, responded to all our queries clearly and promptly, and made amendments to our satisfaction before contract signing.Next up is the building process. We were glad that we did not experience anything like a quiet and empty building site. We always had trades working consistently. The build quality was satisfactory. Even though I didn’t have a lot experience in building as this was my first major project, I did find their choice of building materials and selection of trades were in good quality.Travis was the director of the company but amazingly he was all over the details. We had many unexpected challenges throughout the build, however, he showed us a lot of passion and his can-do attitude was the most impressive. He made it happen to build a S-shaped handrail for our staircase while the stair company did not even want to touch it. He was a very good communicator and a great listener. I appreciated that he always put himself in our shoes in solving problems. Tom was our site supervisor. He too was a good communicator to keep us informed about the progress, to share his knowledge and to hear our concerns. Overall, I found Travis and Tom were very professional, responsive, and easy to talk to.There are a few other people I would like to mention: Carole, who helped selecting colours and bathrooms. We were so happy with the beautiful results; Tiffanie, who was over almost everything else on managing meetings, documentations, liaising with the team for any inquiries, and following up anything outstanding; and individual trades, from carpenters and tilers to plumbers and cleaners, who showed their care and respect.Conclusion: Capital Building is a mature and professional team that has great skills and customer services. I feel the people there being honest and considerate. I would highly recommend them and would certainly consider them again in the future.Response from the ownerHi Suzanne, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice and detailed review. You were a pleasure to work with and we really hope you are enjoying your new space. All the best, CBC Team. michael B. ★★★★★ I recently had capital building do a second story extension , I had no idea what i was getting myself into, my first point of contact was with Pierce, he assured me not worry the whole process was a breeze with Tom,Laura and Tiffany.and Travis and the crew Dylan,Jarrod and the rest of the boys did an exceptional job, it was all done and completed way ahead of schulude.The professionalism and workmanship was above and beyond !
