JABA Construction Happy Client Testimonial:

"I recently had a kitchen and living room renovation done by JABA Construction.  I was very well informed along the way of both projects and was impressed by the cleanliness, friendliness and professionalism of the JABA Staff.  My kitchen project was finished at the projected time but my living room project was delayed due to some issues  - Dave Anderchek was quick to keep me informed and did what he could to put my project back on track.  I would highly recommend JABA Construction and would definitely call them again if I choose to tackle another project."   Pat

             PHASE

                   ONE


Sven Gunter-Doerr and his premium renovation company, FineLine Developments Inc. crew have been hard at work on a total house transformation, so let’s take a look at the first phase of the project

Once finished, the original large open-space basement will include a spacious legal bedroom, a full bathroom open entertainment space and a separate utility room. FineLine chipped out the entire original concrete floor due to water leakage. To prevent future water damage, a new waterproofing system was installed to protect the foundation and new concrete flooring. With the new framing drywall, mudding and taping nearing completion, the focus will on completing the main floor to accommodate the homeowners' ability to move in as soon as possible.


The Main Floor

The 1,140 sq. ft. of this '50s-era bungalow will become fully maximized. By removing the original drywall and flooring, some walls will be relocated and reframed to accommodate the open concept space envisioned by Sven. All exterior walls will be reinsulated and wrapped before the new drywall is mudded and taped. A new gas fireplace will be plumbed in the living room and the original three-bedroom layout is being completely redesigned to include a spacious master suite and second bedroom/office area. 

Electrician Kevin Grotheim, from Riverbend Industries Ltd. is replacing the he entire electrical system of the house. Sven and Kevin have worked on several projects in the past. Sven maintains daily contact with the homeowners, keeping them updated with weekly progress meetings. He eagerly anticipates the finishing stage where the FineLine team will provide its specialty touches. 

Stay tuned for phase two of this total home transformation by Saskatoon's premium renovation experts, FineLine Developments Inc.

Here they shares Mike Holmes comment:

“Mike Holmes’ comment about no good contractor needing more than a 10 per cent deposit hurts our industry.”

Dave Anderchek, JABA Construction, Saskatoon, says that, with totally inaccurate comments like this in the national press, it's "time for Mr. Holmes to leave" our industry.

 Last week we made note of a recent article in the National Post by Mike Holmes, who said that no good contractor needs more than a ten per cent deposit when starting a job. We thought that was highly misleading information, even though Holmes DID say, in his piece, that there was an exception when the demolition phase of a job exposes some previously unknown conditions. But he mentioned NO other exceptions to this iron-clad rule. We all know what influence Mike Holmes has among the general public. We asked for your contractor responses. Here’s one from one of the best contractors in Canada, Dave Anderchek, JABA Construction, Saskatoon.

“I usually don’t say too many things in respect to our industry but I feel that an individual like Mr. Holmes should maybe listen to contractors that actually make a living in the renovation industry. He has made money but not from being a contractor.

As we all know good projects and bad projects of any kind start with trust from both sides. After that is when (trouble) happens.

When solidifying a contract, if you are running your company properly, it means that both parties are held accountable with a binding agreement. This is where most contractors fail. The deposit means business and if additional deposits are required for purchase of specialty ordered products it should also be outlined in that section of your contract.

What Mr. Holmes fails to recognize is that comments like “no more than 10 per cent deposit for contractors” hurt the industry as far as the good contractors to perform what they are good at.

 

 

The contract is the starting point if any homeowner or contractor is legit and (willing to) abide by the promises they made. All of the problems originate after the signing if they are not.

I have been a business owner in the renovation /construction industry for 25 years in Saskatoon and I think it is time for Mr. Holmes to keep to himself and move on with they money he has made. Because he is damaging to good contractors with his opinions when he has never been a contractor in the real world.

My company contracts are approx. eight pages long and outline everything as far as protection for homeowners. A good contractor will tailor his contracts, as well as deposits, as he sees fit. A good contractor will have standards as to the amount of deposit required based on the size of the project. We would ask for a 10 per cent deposit, as outlined by Mr. Holmes, if the contract is over $350k.
Time for Mr. Holmes to leave.”

Dave Anderchek
