Trusted Saskatoon Roofing Contractor 3 'N 1 Construction steps up to SAVE THE DAY after local family Ripped Off by Saskatoon Roofer

Why should you choose a Trusted Business?

WHY can Trusted Partners can be Trusted and what kind of businesses do Trusted promote and endorse on our directories...here is a fine example of one of our Trusted Saskatoon Roofers and Contractors.  

The day 3 'n 1 Construction saved the day  

FRIENDLY, SINCERE AND HONEST ..DONE BY THE BOOK ..that's what it says on the card of Ken Eade ...the owner of 3'n 1 construction and this truly is the philosophy he lives and does business by....This is why when he heard a sad story about a local woman Lorraine Denie, via a friend,  who had been Ripped Off by a  ' Con Man Saskatoon Roofer ' he felt he had to call her to get the full story and to see if he could in some way help....

Ken spoke to Lorraine and she told him that she had gotten a quote for new shingles on her modest East side Saskatoon home from the owner of a company called ' Saviour Roofing', the man asked for a sizeable deposit to pay for all materials ..and as he portrayed himself very convincingly as an honest Church going family man, Lorraine didn't hesitate in Trusting him and handed over the money....

He never came back..the cell number had been disconnected and when she checked afterwards, the company was not registered..her Saskatoon Roofer was a Con Man and had disappeared along with her money ...she was devasted..emotionally and financially....he later called to say that her had spent her money on his addiction and the work wouldn't be happening... BEWARE this happens MORE than you think!!!

After hearing this sad tale, Ken was moved into action..he immediately called his 3 'n1 Construction Team together, and after hearing the story all of them didn't think twice about offering their services for a day without pay to cover the labour costs on the roofing work. Ken is so proud that his team made the decision to take a day away from their familys and their own recreation time to help Lorraine and her family in a time of need. ..

Ken then approached his suppliers KENROC Building Materials, hoping they might be interested in donating some supplies  .... Kenroc  did more than that, after hearing the story and sharing it with Head Office in Regina, they quickly got back to Ken to tell him they would use their Community fund to donate EVERYTHING required to do the job, for FREE  to help Lorraine out! They really appreciated Ken giving them the opportunity to be involved , and it is clear,  like Ken they stand for Integrity and commit to Honest business practices

KENROC as they deliver all the materials and supplies to Lorraine !!! 

Ken called Lorraine to tell her the good news and she simply couldn't believe it!!! From a bad experience with a con man contractor that ripped her off and left her devastated ..to being approached by a caring stranger Ken and his equally caring supplier who ended up coming to her families rescue ...for no other motivation than just wanting to help her out and put things right! Matt from KENROC and Ken came down to meet Lorraine Today ( 30th May..how fitting that it is the www.trustedsaskatoon.com 1st anniversary )

Ken called Trusted to share the story with us earlier this week, and to see if we could help get the word out that ' con men ' were out there in Saskatoon doing this to people...we are so proud of him and his kind heart, and we asked if we could help  out in anyway ..but it seems he and Kenroc had everything covered as far as the re-roofing was going...so what else could we do we wondered ? 

Knowing that the emotional stress of being ripped off is almost always worse than the financial pain ..we contacted Melissa Hamilton, one of our Trusted Spa Partners, owner of Edgewater Spa and Spa Ahava , and told her the story ..Melissa was shocked and genuinely concernd for Lorraines wellbeing and we didn't have to ask for a thing ..she offered to give Lorraine a Gift Certificate so she could have some relaxation and destressing ' Lorraine time' after her recent tough time! Way to go Melissa- you ROCK!  

WOW what a Great TRIO of businesses....what a great ending to what started off as an horrific tale...

If you see Ken and the 3 'n 1 team give them the Thumbs up...same to Kenroc and Edgewater Spa ..you deserve all the kudos you are going to get because of your kind and selfless actions..you've certainly made our day at Trusted ..and many other peoples too I am sure!!!!  

 

their story was also covered on Newstalk 650 ..they came down after we shared the story with them...so they can help get the news out to everyone!

See the video for an interview with  Lorraine , Ken and Matt from Kenroc.... Thumbs up to all!!

TRUSTED SASKATOON USED AUTO DEALER share a Trusted Tip on shopping for a Used Vehicle

A great Trusted Tip on Shopping for a Used Vehicle

QUESTION: " My wife and I are contemplating the purchase of a “new” vehicle. By new, I mean new to us, we're not hung up on a brand new vehicle." Russ and Sandie

ANSWER: Those in the know, know that the best way to make a great deal is to use other people's money. By that I mean, let someone else pay for the depreciation of a vehicle, so it makes a ton of sense to consider the option of purchasing an off-lease vehicle or previously loved vehicle . An off-lease is usually two or three years old, will still hold the remainder of the manufacturer's warranty, is usually loaded with options, well maintained and will be in good cosmetic condition.

Consider the following points when it comes to making the second-most expensive purchase most people will ever make, next to a home.

•Set a budget. You will be amazed by how fast you will whittle down the overwhelming choices that are out there.

•Decide if you want to purchase or lease. Yes, you can lease used vehicles. However, unless you have a business that you can write off the lease payments against, I suggest you purchase. When you lease, you are basically renting a vehicle and the agreement comes with strings such as keeping the kilometres low, regular, documented maintenance and ensuring the cosmetic condition is top notch. Purcahsing a vehicle makes much more financial sense for a typical persons circumstances.

•What will you be using the vehicle for? Determine what you will be doing with the vehicle 95 per cent of the time. Unless you have definitive answers to any or all of the following points, it's likely you can get away with a small car. I used the 95 per cent figure because in the mid 1980s General Motors conducted a study to determine how it should outfit its pickup truck line. GM found that pickups were used as pickups only 5 per cent of the time. This turned the tables on light-duty trucks forever by making them more car-like.

•Do you have needs that require car pooling?

•Are you expecting to take bunches of kids to hockey or soccer? (There's a lot of gear to be slogged around along with the kids)

•Do you expect to haul cargo ? Will it be light or heavy?

•Will you be towing a trailer or boat? Lake life, Winter snow mobiling and Recreational vehicles are HUGE in Saskatchewan..and you need the right vehicle if you have those needs!

•Will you be off-roading or driving on snow covered roads?

•Is fuel economy important? Many manufacturers offer the same model with four cylinder as well as six- or even eight-cylinder engines. You don't have to settle for what's popular. With some planning and patience, you will find what you are looking for.

•Check out recalls and service campaigns. This can be done by contacting that brand's dealer or by subscribing to service information providers like www.Alldata.com  or by visiting the Transport Canada web site.

•Check out Consumer Reports. This can be done online or by magazine. Find out consensus for your choice of vehicle. Consumer Reports publishes a yearly document that not only spells out findings by their experts but also publishes vehicle owner survey results.

•Take your investigation to the next level: check out online forums. What are people saying that own these vehicles? It's amazing the feedback you will discover....find a TRUSTED SASKATOON USED AUTO DEALER , who you can be guaranteed to provide you with unbiased, honest to goodness advice..we know the vehicles and we know what's a good or a bad buy for your specific set of needs!   

•Take your narrowed-down list to a Trusted Used dealer who specialise in ' previously loved vehicles'  . Drive all your choices – you may find that a test drive will make you wonder why you even considered this vehicle in the first place – or you may wonder why it took you so long to find “the perfect car”.

Russ and Sandie, in the end, you like everyone else will likely buy with your heart. But now at least you have an idea how to narrow down the search and what to expect along the way. Good luck and above all, have fun. Buying a vehicle should be a highlight .....there's nothing better than handing over the keys to a new owner and seeing the joy on their face as they drive away ..it feels GREAT!!

Kitchen and Bath Classics showroom manager Lori shares her latest tip!

To Bidet or not Bidet?

What is a bidet?A question many North Americans struggle to answer. A bidet is a plumbing fixture that cleanses the user after he/she has used the toilet. This idea was first introduced by the French in the late 1700′s and has become wildly popular throughout Europe and Japan. Today a bidet and or washlet is found in more than 70% of homes in Japan and Europe, and only 20% of homes in North America. The newest form of bidet is the bidet seat (Washlet from Toto www.totousa.com ); this unit takes the place of your standard toilet seat and requires a 120VAC, 15A, 60Hz Class A GFCI outlet. With this more convenient application this unit saves room in the bathroom as opposed to the standard bidet sytle which was a separate fixture beside the toilet.

Some of the features associated with this S400 Washlet from Toto are:

•Auto Flush Activated by Sensors or the Simple Touch of a Button

•Automatic Open / Close Lid Activated by Sensors, or the Simple Touch of a Button on the Remote Control

•Gentle Aerated Warm Water

•Front and Rear Washing

•Massage Feature

•Warm Air Drying with Variable Three-Temperature Setting

•Automatic Air Purifier

•Heated Seat with Temperature Control

•Convenient Wireless Remote Control with Large LCD Panel With the increased cleanliness and therapeutic effect of water (e.g. great for rashes, hemorrhoids, constipation, pregnancy, menstrual and just everyday cleaning) the bidet almost eliminates the use of toilet paper for greener living.

Trusted SASKATOON.com shares an article on Beautiful you Tina LaVailles new confident smile!

 

Dr Wes Antosh is the Dentist that participates in the populatr Star Phoenix Promotion Beautiful You ....here we share a Star Phoneix article about 2010's Beautiful You transformation winner Tina LaVallie.  

 

Beautiful You Tina's smile is transformed!

Last spring was not the first time that Tina LaVallie had filled out an application form to be considered as a StarPhoenix Beautiful You candidate. Her very first application form, filled out five years ago, never reached the Star Phoenix Beautiful You judges. Tina's fear of dentistry prevented her from sending in the application form, in case she was selected and ended up having to see the Beautiful You dentist.

Like many people, Tina's fear of dentistry began with a negative experience in childhood. "From that time on, I always associated dental appointments with that experience of having teeth pulled. I even consulted a therapist to help me overcome that fear, but he wasn't able to help," says Tina. "Because of my fear, I didn't go for regular dental checkups, and my teeth got pretty bad. I consider myself fortunate that they didn't end up even worse than they were. I was sure that I had advanced gum disease." Her dental anxiety reached a peak three years ago when a toothache necessitated a root canal. "That was my first experience with sedation dentistry. I had the root canal done, but I couldn't make myself go back for the crown that they were going to do," says Tina.

Tina was determined not to let fear conquer her again and prevent her from applying for the Beautiful You program in the spring of 2009. "I was really determined to improve my overall health, and felt I could do it with the help of the Beautiful You team," says Tina. Dental health is a key component of the Beautiful You program. After being selected as the Beautiful You, one of Tina's very first appointments was for an oral health examination by Dr. Wes Antosh at Saskatoon Smiles. It's important for patients to tell their dentist if they're nervous about dental visits, advises the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) on its informative website. "Often, it's fear of pain that keeps people out of the dental chair. But new ways of doing things have made modern dentistry almost painless. If you are afraid of going to the dentist for any reason, don't be shy to talk to your dentist about it. Your dentist is trained to help you relax," says the CDA. Dr. Antosh and his team worked together to put Tina at ease. I was able to talk to Dr. Antosh about my anxiety, and the sedation medications I had to use in the past. He understood my fear," says Tina. "At the beginning of each appointment, the dentist's assistant would take the time to chat with me before the treatment began, which helped calm me.

When I was going to have a new procedure, such as in-office bleaching, they were very good about explaining everything to me first. That was very helpful," says Tina. Dr. Antosh says, "To help patients manage their anxiety, we want to keep their experience pain-free. Something as simple as the use of a topical anesthetic gel to numb the gum tissue prior to treatment can help many patients. It makes the procedure less invasive. The dentist's own attitude toward the patient is also important. If you take a light, friendly approach, the patient is more relaxed." People with dental anxiety, like Tina, often neglect having annual oral health examinations. "This only compounds the problem," says Dr. Antosh. With regular check-ups, we can catch small problems early and treat them before they become big problems. It's always better to be preventive." During a dental check up, the dentist also looks for signs of other health problems, including early signs of gum disease, infection, oral cancer and other illnesses. "Your teeth and gums are important indicators of your overall health," says Dr. Antosh. "It's true: healthy gums are a healthy you!"

Tina's dental check up revealed several cavities that required fillings. As well, several old fillings were deteriorating and needed to be replaced. As fillings age and deteriorate, there is a greater risk that the tooth around the filling will crack. Tina was also in need of a thorough cleaning by one of the clinic's dental hygienists. Professional cleaning is the only way to remove hardened deposits of tartar from teeth. If not removed, tartar can cause gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. An in-office bleaching treatment was used to whiten and brighten Tina's teeth. The system uses a light-activated hydrogen peroxide gel, power-assisted by a bleaching lamp, to whiten teeth in just one to two hours. Tina also received an at-home gel tray bleaching kit, to help her maintain the new whiteness of her teeth. To further enhance Tina's smile, Dr. Antosh applied veneers and crowns to Tina's top teeth. The crowns were milled on-site at the dental office, using their new E.max system. "I can't believe how wonderful my smile is now!" says Tina. "I never dreamed I could have such a great smile. I had resigned myself to the idea that I'd end up having to get dentures."

Before her Beautiful You makeover, Tina says she had become used to hiding her smile. "I didn't want people looking at my smile. I'd smile with my hand over my mouth or shy away from meeting new people," says Tina. "After getting my teeth done, I'm just amazed by how many people comment on my smile. It makes me realize how important my smile is to my self-confidence and overall health." Prior to her Beautiful You experience, Tina never thought she would ever be able to get through one - let alone ten dentist appointments! With each appointment, she grew less reliant on the sedation medication, to the point where she recently was able to have a second cleaning by one of the dental hygienists without any medication at all! "I never ever thought that would have been possible!" says Tina. "After every appointment, I felt a feeling of accomplishment. I'd think, 'Wow, I did it!'" I can't say enough about my experience at Saskatoon Smiles. It's been a real learning experience, one of personal growth. I'm very grateful for my new smile!" Tina is now looking forward to her next annual dental check up, which is scheduled for August.
