The Trusted team work for the public, we do that by finding great local businesses, verifying they are as good as we have heard, and contracting them to uphold the 5 Trusted Guarantees. These businesses are the best and when they found out about Janice, a hard working single Mum in Saskatoon who had been ripped off from a local contractor and left living in a building site with her 10 year old daughter ...they STEPPED UP !

Here is Janices's Story Part 2 ...including the first video of the property so you can see for yourself whats she' dealing with. ( here is a link to Part 1 so you can read the full story

 

JANICE's BUILD a Trusted Rebuild 

 

After the initial meeting with Janice last week, the next step was to get a Trusted Contractor in to look at Janices's house.
 
Dave Andercheck from JABA Construction, is a well recognized business leader and expert in construction , he and his team met with Janice so he could look over Janice's bomb site of a home, he was shocked at the mess and terrible workmanship.  He is now compiling a report so he can lay out just what needs to be done, and from there we can start planning the rebuild, and what we need in regards help & materials from the amazing Trusted partners across Saskatchewan and their suppliers -
       

 
 

 

 


 

Thank you also to Aaron Loraas- from Loraas disposal for donating bins and garbage fees for the project , Rona for their huge donation and Winroc for many of the materials , and of course the new heated roofing system donated by Heated roofing in Colarado! 

Trusted community steps up to help a local Saskatoon woman after her contractor nightmare Part 1

The Trusted teamwork for the public, we do that by finding great local businesses, verifying they are as good as we have heard, and contracting them to uphold the 5 Trusted Guarantees. These 5 Trusted guarantees are the cornerstone of our business and the businesses we partner with, and if something does go wrong we hold the businesses to their obligations....that's what the Trusted Saskatoon businesses sign up for. That's why we promote them and why we believe they are the best businesses in the cities we serve. 

 

 

JANICE'S BUILD- the Trusted Rebuild

Last week we heard about Janice, a single Mum in Saskatoon that has not been lucky enough to deal with a  ' Trustworthy' business, in fact, she has dealt with the kind of company that we set Trusted Saskatoon up to protect people from.... let's share the first part of the story. 

Janice is a lovely woman who has been left in a house that was a home 5 months ago & now is a dangerous unfinished, building site. She is trying to keep on a brave face for her 10-year-old daughter but is sick with worry that the house won't survive the Winter cold that is on its way,  and wondering every day how she is going to manage to get back on her feet .......why? All because of an unscrupulous Saskatoon contractor that has been her worst nightmare! 

 

We heard her story last week through a friend of Sara's, the Trusted founder, and we were extremely moved by her plight, and wanted to do what we could to help...it's a great thing we know an amazing group of local Saskatoon businesses, who are invested in their community and who truly set the standard for integrity in the Saskatoon Business community!

 

We sent out an email at 9 pm that night, we had some responses back within the hour and by the end of the week, we have already had so many wonderful Trusted Saskatoon directory partners offer Janice their help...and  Trusted Regina partners!  

 

 


Thank you also to Aaron Loraas- from Loraas disposal for donating bins and garbage fees for the project, Winroc and Rona for materials and Heating roofing systems in Colorado for the roof!! 

Sara went to surprise Janice tonight, who knew nothing of this until then..it was extremely emotional, Janice was completely gobsmacked when Sara knocked on her door and told her why she was there. Once the first round of tears dried, and she realized Sara was above board, she showed her around the house and Sara couldn't believe the state this contractor has left her in. We shared the news about the wonderful Trusted Saskatoon companies that had already stepped up to help her, and she was happy to allow us to document this journey by blog and video, so she could prevent other people from having the same thing happen to them....so this is Part 1 of THE HOUSE THAT TRUSTED SASKATOON REBUILT!   

So whats next?
 
 
Dave Andercheck from JABA Construction, a well-recognized business leader and expert in the construction industry is going to cast his professional eye over Janice's bomb site of a home, and he will then be able to assess just what needs to be done, and from there we can start planning the rebuild, and what we need in regards help & materials from these amazing Trusted Saskatoon companies.
 
 We will leave you with Sara's comments as the last words of Part 1
 
" Saskatoon has been amazing to me and my family, and I believe it's important to step up to help people in the community you live in. Janice's situation is not uncommon unfortunately, thing like this happen every day to families and individuals in this city and this province, that's why I was motivated to start Trusted. I am just glad I am in a position, along with the Trusted partners to help her with this hand up back on her feet again. 
 
To start the ball rolling I will donate $1000 in TrustedSaskatoon.com  Gift Certificates for Janice to put towards this rebuild. She can use them at any of the partner businesses on the www.trustedsaskatoon.com directory.  I am not going to publicly name the contractor or his business...that is not my place, but after what I saw & heard today I believe strongly that the company  should have their A rating on the Better Business Bureau of Saskatchewan lowered to an F, and the insurance companies should take them off their preferred list of contractors"  
 
  

Made In The Shade a Trusted Saskatoon Window Coverings - In Home Design Consultations

 Trusted Saskatoon window covering experts! 

Here they share a tip on In Home Design Consultations:

 

Do you ever sit in your home and daydream about all of the interior decorating changes that you’d love to make, but you don’t know where to start? If you’re like me, you might have a million pages torn out of magazines that show off styles that you like, but have no idea how to incorporate into your unique space.

That perfect design combination of color, fabric, and texture is a challenge, and there’s a reason why designers are artists too. It takes practice, experience, trial-and-error, and a fearless attitude to bring your home from just being functional, to also being beautiful. This is where we come in.


We believe that Windows, Walls & Floors are the foundation of every great space. These three elements set the tone for all other design considerations, and when well-thought-out can serve as a base to help you express your style. Our job at Made In The ShFashions is to help you pull these elements together so that your home can express your style and meet the needs of your family’s lifestyle.

An in-home consultation is a great way for you to show us your space and explain your vision. We come armed with samples, swatches, and creativity to help you to achieve the space you've always wished for.


Why choose an in-home consultation?

  1. Most of us are visual learners: It’s easier for you to explain your ideas when we’re in the space with you, and it’s easier for our designers to understand what you mean about that unique wall or distinctive nook when we can see it first-hand.
  2. Colors change based on the environment: Seeing the samples and swatches in your home and in the light that is normal for your space ensures that the colors you choose turn out exactly like you want.
  3. Your living room doesn’t travel well: It’s a lot easier for us to bring the showroom to you, than for you to bring your living room to us.
  4. Sometimes it’s easier to make decisions in the comfort of your own home, without too many choices to create confusion. You can visualize your future space, much more easily when you’re sitting in your present space.


Take a moment to request an In-Home Consultation and let us do the rest for you. You won’t be disappointed.

Trusted Saskatoon Interior Design Experts -Modern Office Renovation - Part 2


Here they share a tip on a Modern Office Renovation - Part 2:

Part 2 of 3 we take a glimpse into the progress of the renovation, and see how the design and concept start to come together. Custom built-ins, a glass wall, and stunning new railing lend perfectly to the modern esthetic our client loves. The space is a perfect blend of style and function, with every corner designed with the client’s needs in mind. The overall INTERIOR DESIGN picture works together harmoniously. Not only does the glass wall maximize the amount of light in the space it offer a birds-eye view of the main living area. The custom railing is sleek & streamlined, and becomes an architectural focal point and conversation piece. The home no longer looks like so many other on the block, its becoming a unique & inspired space that reflects the client’s personality!

We can’t wait for the project completion soon, stay posted through our social media outlets for the big reveal!
