In many cases, their customers, clients and other Trusted Partners nominate businesses

Once we meet and they decide to proceed with the process, we give them a list of items we need to verify their ' Trusted status'. This includes a list of past clients who we survey personally over the phone- it is a pass or fail!

Larry's Experience with Strata Development.
Strata Development were clear about how they would deliver. The project, the schedule, and the budget are laid out for you throughout the process. Line by line and date by date, the details are shared in real-time, so you always know where you stand. But don't take it from us here is was a delighted customer has to say about their experience with Chris and the team at Strata Development.
"A while back, my home flooded. As I am sure, you can understand this can be a very stressful event. There was water pouring in from the ceiling. It was raining inside. I gave Chris a call and within an hour he had a team there cleaning up the mess and patching what needed to be repaired to prevent more damage. They went as far as opening the floor so it could dry out. I was extremely impressed. It was like they had never been there. After the fact, I received an invoice with the number of labour hours listed involving in the cleanup and drying out of my home. And on the back of the invoice, there was a credit note for the full amount and a note saying don’t worry about it we are glad that we could help. This is truly exceptional and unexpected in a world of business to have contractors and building company that cares. After getting an assessment of the damage done instead of just replacing the flooring and walls, I decided to do a full renovation and make this my forever home. Without question, I trusted Chris and his team at Strata Development to make this a reality for me. From the beginning of the project to the design team, the staff were incredible and on point with recommendations. They were always very upfront with any expectations, and they delivered what they said they would. This business is truly a step above. I will be working with them again soon." Larry Glauser
