By Erin Legg- Refined Lifestyles 2016

In a construction industry as competitive as Saskatoon’s, what can a company do to set itself apart? Seven years ago, Ken Eade founded 3 ’N 1 Construction with a golden principle in mind — raise the standards homeowners should expect. “Standards slip when people let them,” he says. “It only takes one guy to change that.”

And change it he did. 3 ’N 1 is well-known for its commitment to integrity, whether it’s with the client, a contractor or a supplier. “In the beginning, I kept wondering, ‘How will people pass along my name? How are people going to recognize me?’ ” Eade reflects. “I decided to be a catalyst for change and raise people’s standards — and exceed them in everything we do.”

3 ’N 1 is a diverse company that provides quality construction services for projects of any magnitude. Whether framing homes or garages, roofing and siding, and soffits and fascia, the 3 ’N 1 team is well versed in all areas. Eade, a former scientist, says this diversification is something his customers have come to appreciate. On making the leap from the world of science to that of construction, he says, “Science is cumulative. If you don’t understand the basics, you won’t understand the complexities of everything else. Construction is the same; you have to know the basics so you can evolve your company. I think doing everything has really been one secret of our success. It’s eliminated a lot of frustration for customers.”

Another component of the company’s success is its crew of reputable construction professionals. Eade has great pride in his trusted sub-contractors. “We really do work as a team,” he says. “We are very aware when we arrive at a worksite this is someone’s home, someone’s property. We always keep that in mind.”

Part of Eade’s leadership in the construction industry is educating homeowners about the construction process and how to choose a reputable contractor. “I always, always, always tell people: do your research!” he stresses. “Get a detailed quote. Compare apples to apples. Research a company thoroughly. Are they insured? Are they WCB certified? Do they carry liability insurance? Are they in good standing with their suppliers?” The passion he enthuses about this topic shows his commitment to homeowners and the industry by raising the level of standards that should be expected — and achieved.

Relationships are something Eade does not take for granted. He recalls a recent project in Craik where he assisted a contractor by installing a new roof on a massive barn project. “My supplier sent two extra pallets of shingles. We’re talking about $1,800 worth! So I called them up and said, ‘You sent too much!’ And I returned the extra right away. I never take the relationships I have with my suppliers lightly. They are integral to our success as a company.”

Does a business with a respected reputation happen by chance? No. When the founder sets a high standard of achievement, the company’s competitive advantage quickly becomes apparent. Recalls Eade: “My dad said, ‘In life, there will be people who will try to take things from you — your wife, your possessions. You may lose everything you have in life, but there’s one thing nobody can take from you and that is integrity. The only person who can give that up is you.’ ”

3'n1 Construction shares a testimonial

                                        


"I hope you and the crew managed to get some much-deserved R&R on the weekend. John and I spent a lot of Saturday outside admiring the new shingles from a variety of angles around the house. You guys did a beautiful job! Then when the rain came later Saturday afternoon, we decided it would be a good test for leaks. So far, so good, which is no surprise I’m sure!

We wanted to write to tell you how impressed we were with the job as well as the process and the cleanup, and we are very much looking forward to working with you again. Later this summer, once we’ve had a chance to check outdoor colours at Creative Doors, we’ll be in touch to see how things look for you in the fall (maybe I should have used the word ‘autumn’!

In the meantime, stay safe!"

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!! 

  

Stay Trusted my friends..SAFE AND TRUSTED SASKATOON

 

Heres the Amazing and Trusted 3'n1 team ..way to go!!!
