The Trusted Saskatoon Team are delighted to welcome Wood FX Contracting to our Saskatoon directory of excellence in the Saskatoon Renovations Category!
Wood FX Contracting
Wood FX Contracting is a family run Saskatoon renovation business with over 18 years of experience. It was founded by Orville Friesen, who initially started the company doing exterior renovations and then he switched to interior renovations. The company specializes in hardwood flooring and carpentry but can tackle any interior residential renovation you might need! In 2013 Wood FX Contracting became the registered business name and it is now primarily run by Orville's son Justin Friesen, although Orville is still on site daily. The Father & son team have worked together for years providing quality workmanship to many clients and home builders!
Trusted Saskatoon Home Builders, Decora Homes Ltd. nominated Wood FX shared their experience with Wood FX Contracting:
"When it comes to hardwood, laminate, LVP or WCP install, Wood FX is a company we would recommend to anyone. We have been using their services for over 4 years now and have had nothing but great experiences with their quality of workmanship." -Rhonda Iula (Owner - Decora Homes Ltd.)
Every client that we talked throughout the Trusted verification process and survey that has worked with Wood FX Contracting had nothing but great things to say and the were given a 10/10 every time!
One thing that we loved was that they knew Justin and the family by name but not always the company name, which just shows how they are truly the faces of their business!
Another happy client from Saskatoon had this to say about their experience with Wood FX Contracting!
"I have known Justin and his family for over 10 years and they are the best installers in Saskatoon. Their family was born and raised with woodwork. They are great with their clients and ensure quality work. Any issues that arise in regards to humidity etc that might affect install they are upfront and honest about! They definitely have my trust! - Corey G. (Saskatoon)
Wood FX Contracting does all type of interior renovations from bathrooms, kitchens, flooring installation and much more... When we visited their work site we saw for ourselves the quality of workmanship they stand by!
Trusted Saskatoon welcomes the Friesen Family and Wood FX Contracting to our directory of excellence and we give them the Thumbs Up!

Do You Have a Mortgage Renewal Coming Up?
When it comes time to mortgage renewals, the smartest thing that you can do is get help from a Trusted Saskatoon Mortgage Broker who has access to over 20 lenders that want your business! The experienced Saskatoon mortgage team at YourMortgageNow can also guarantee you a rate for 120 days in advance of your renewal date. Think about the thousands of dollars that this will save you in interest costs alone! There can be fees associated with transferring your mortgage to get a better interest rate, but sometimes the new lender will cover the costs just to obtain your business!
Do you think it's smarter to renew your mortgage with a bank?
The YourMortgageNow team urges you to read our articles on the Bank Vs Mortgage Broker debate, then ask yourself the following:
• Why won’t my bank provide me with a 120 day, low rate guarantee?
• Why isn’t my bank giving me the best deal possible?
• Why is my bank sending me a renewal notice and not sitting down to talk to me
It just makes sense to have someone shop around for your best interest rate, you can TRUST them to do it for you, and you have nothing to lose!
Fitness Focus Challenge -Week Four- Sara Fell Off The Fitness Wagon...HARD.
Well, it happened ....what happened?
LIFE, Life happened.
The biggest barrier to me starting this fitness challenge before now, was my life is so hectic and often it sabotages my plans to prioritize myself. This has been the case so far in June. My last work out with Denise was May 31st and every time I have tried to go to the gym since then something has wrecked my plans.
I was on a cancellation list for the periodontist - and 2 appointments in 1 day came available so I had to take them, an unplanned business road trip to Manitoba robbed me of another 2 days, Trusted 7th-anniversary event, a family event in Regina, my son's school city track meet- one thing after another conspired to stop me moving. Then the events - with wine and food. Essentially taking 2 hours to go to the gym would have meant missing client deadlines or important family moments - and I wasn't getting to bed till at least 11 pm every night ( sometimes not getting in from work stuff till then).
Activity? What activity?
See my Fitbit for visual representation! I dropped from averaging over 75,000 steps a week to my ' old habits ' of just over 40,000. I did go paddleboarding and walking at the lake this weekend, fit in a bike ride with my kids last Sunday night and tried to walk the stairs ...but as you can see it wasn't enough.
This, of course, means I didn't lose any weight, in fact, I put 1lb back on and I feel like 2 big steps back as my energy levels have dropped off.
I can't express to you how much I am disappointed in myself, as I should have cut back / modified my food ( and drink ) intake to accommodate my crazy schedules impact - but I also failed miserably at that too.
So I failed - this is when people normally quit ( and when I have before to be honest ), but I am not going to let this happen.
It happened, its done - now time to start over again!
I have booked 6 more Denise sessions, my first is on Wednesday- I am going to go to the gym at least 5 days this week and will be sticking to salads and shakes for the foreseeable future.
Postive of week 3-4
- I ONLY gained 1.LB back.
- I was able to be there all day to see my son compete at track and field ( he was awesome)
- Trusted had an amazing 7th-anniversary event- my clients are amazing and all the extra work / long hours has resulted in lots of new contracts/work for the team.
Negatives from week 1
1. Eat salads and drink less ( I see a theme here )
2. Take the 5 flights of stairs to the office instead of the elevator.
3. Increase Cardio on all days - I need to speed up the fat burn.
4. Go to bed earlier!
Wish me luck.

The Trusted Saskatoon directory team are thrilled to welcome Wiegers Financial & Benefits to the Trusted Saskatoon community. You will find their listing in the Saskatoon Financial Services and Saskatoon Insurance categories on the Saskatoon directory you can Trust.
It's easy to brag about Wiegers Financial & Benefits!
Established 25 years ago by Cliff and Deb Wiegers, the company grew from humble beginnings to a level of success that puts it on par with some of the largest financial planning companies in Canada!
Their approach to working with clients is personal and they are dedicated and committed to getting to know their clients and what they want and need, both at the beginning of the working relationship and as their personal and professional lives change or as their businesses evolve. This commitment is reflected in a process that involves regular contact and a client/advisor relationship that is both comfortable, familiar and special in a industry not often associated with warmth!
Award Winning Community supporters!
Wiegers Care for Kids actively fundraises year-round and has already hosted five major fundraising events, raising over $800,000 for the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital
Wiegers Financial & Benefits came highly recommended.
Many of the Trusted Saskatoon partners are already long standing clients of Wiegers Financial & Benefits, in fact they were nominated by Trusted Saskatoon Salon owners , Laddie & Shelley James of Hairstyle Inn Salons - that in itself is great testament to the high standards and level of care that the Wiegers team bring to the table!
Don't take our word for it - hear from more of their happy clients here!
"The people at Wiegers take care of me personally as well as the group benefits at Reed Security. They're helpful, friendly and always offer a variety of options. I'm also impressed with their community values and the huge dollar amounts they continue to raise for the Children's Hospital. They care!" Virgil Reed, Reed Security, Trusted Saskatoon Alarm & Security Professionals.
"My wife and I have been accessing investment advice, long-term planning and portfolio management from Wiegers and company for several years. I have found the services to be personalized and tailored to the needs that we have, which wouldn't be the same for people of a different age. Attention is paid to our financial circumstances and our advisor, which in our case is Cliff Wiegers, keeps in touch personally or through others at the company. You have more confidence that people are taking care of the financial affairs under their watch in a careful way when you know that they do not resent making personal contact and obviously see it as an important part of making sure that they understand your needs. They take the time to discuss things which is not always case with service providers. Whether times for investment are good or bad, the need exists for competent guidance and we have received that. It is good to deal with a local company that is also linked in with large financial organizations which offer a range of products that may fit the particular client. I have appreciated the personalized service and attention we receive from the company." Eric Cline, Saskatoon
We are proud to promote and give the thumbs up to Wiegers Financial & Benefits as Trusted Saskatoon Financial and Insurance advisors!
