Casey and his team did a wonderful job on our passive house standard home. They tackled some of unusual features that I had designed without problem. Good teamwork.
I hired the folks at The Conscious Builder Inc to design and carry out a major kitchen renovation as well as refinishing the pine floors on the ground floor of my house. The cabinets were manufactured using wood harvested from my own property. Also the wood for the ceiling was milled from my own lumber. The job was completed on schedule, and even though a few surprises were found in the 100+ year old house, it was within budget. I am very pleased with the work carried out by Casey and his crew.
I hired the conscious builder as he was recommended to me through a friend of mine. The owner, Casey Grey made it a point to meet with me , provide a detailed estimate, timelines and prices. Casey is extremely honest and up front. This contractor hires experienced workers and what was important to me was that at any point of the reno if there was a question or an issue with what they discovered they contacted me to advise me and go through what my options were. The workmanship was extremely well done and I found his team to be effective, left the site clean every day before leaving and they were all extremely polite. My project was large in scope, from tearing down outside covering to re-insulation of exterior walls, windows and doors all changed , to inside walls being knocked, my kitchen being gutted , a support beam installed and full kitchen reno. we were on par for the budget and when there were costs I didn't expect Casey always came by to explain the rationale and we figured out ways to save on other things without sacrificing the expected outcome. I highly recommend the Conscious builder as Casey is not jus there to renovate... he wants to make your house more efficient which in the end saves you money! I was not disappointed and you will not be. I would hire them again for a project of this magnitude you must trust your builder and I trust The conscious builder.
The conscious builder did a wonderful job finishing our basement. Honest, reliable, courteous, professional, helpful. And they really care about sustainable design and construction.
The Conscious Builder has done several jobs for us on our 120-year-old home. This company is very professional, prepares all the correct paperwork, meets all deadlines and budgets, and is very pleasant to deal with. All crew members are excellent workers and a pleasure to have in the house - they are very skilled, and very neat and tidy.
As a recent purchaser of a home, I was in the need of some renovation services to address some deficiencies that were common to 1960s-era homes. After asking around for some leads, I was referred to The Conscious Builder Inc by a friend. The consultation was very informative and the representative took the time to hear my needs and expectations as well as describe all the options that were available to me. The quotation for services that I received did an excellent job of breaking down the scope of work and cost of materials for each tier of activity (ranging from low to high pricing). It was easy to determine the type of work and associated cost based on the provided scope of work. The logistics and work activities were estimated accurately and the work was performed on time and on budget (this included setup, demolition, preparation, installation, clean up and tear down). Type of work performed: existing hard wood flooring removal, sub floor replacement and re-enforcement, tiling and carpeting with associated painting. I would highly recommend their services and provide repeat business for future renovations.
I recently had my basement re-finished with The Conscious Builder (it had previously been finished years ago, but it needed some changes to work for our family now). Working with Richard (project manager) and Shawn was great. They are both easy to talk to and conscientious about their work. I would not hesitate to work with either of them again. The basement turned out fantastic and is a much more usable space. Despite two major hiccups (leaking cracks in the basement behind previously finished walls), the job was completed on time and we are very please with our new basement.
We hired Cornelis Grey Construction to retrofit ductwork for a kitchen range hood fan. Not a large job perhaps, but it did require some careful planning to work around attic obstructions and still maintain a sufficiently short and straight pathway for the ductwork. Mr. Grey’s crew were professional, resourceful and respectful – and my wife and I are extremely pleased with the result.
Over the many years of our association with Casey Grey and his team at Cornelis Grey Construction Inc. we had numerous repairs done in our former older home and, more recently, renovation work in our current home to upgrade the kitchen, bathrooms, and various exterior upgrades. Our expectations of a good contractor are: technical competence; timeliness; fair pricing; flexibility to adapt solutions; and clear communication throughout the project. The team at Cornelis Grey Construction Inc. have all of these and, in addition, are very easy and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend them for all sorts of repairs and construction, ranging from small to large. The company provides good value for money spent
I have hired contractors to do new house construction and renovation and working with Casey on our kitchen reno was one of the very best experiences I have had. He and his crew were easy to work with, detail and quality oriented, and were more than reasonable when it came time for the inevitable surprise. Highly recommended.
