Read What Our Customers Have to Say About Mario LaFlamme
I was referred to Mario Laflamme owner and operator of Laflamme Contracting and Renovation to complete my basement development. His reputation amongst his colleagues was very positive, and I was told: "I was in good hands". From the minute I met Mario, he was professional and knowledgeable. He provided me with a written quote that was detailed and easy to understand. Towards the end of the completed project, Mario suggested adding wallpaper to create a feature wall. He stated this would enhance the finished project. For only the additional cost of the wallpaper, he and his team hung the wallpaper within a day. I was very pleased with the finished project. Overall, everything was completed in a timely manner, the cost was within my budget, and I was extremely happy with the workmanship. In the end, Mario took every step to ensure I was satisfied with my basement both with the workmanship and customer service.
Our experience with Laflamme Contractors was extremely positive. We brought them in to quote and install a new front entrance to our (then) house initially. Mario and his team started the process with a thorough survey of our needs, followed by some ideas they had to improve on our vision and a very clear and accurate quote. About 1 month after we placed the order for the custom door, we came across a house we wanted and bought it. We then went back to Mario and advised the situation and that we wanted the new door we had on order to be installed in our new house. Mario went out to the new house and determined that it would be a challenge due to the revised dimensions but was able to revise the custom installation to make it work on our new house and the cost to do so was very reasonable. The final product is fantastic and we could not have been any more impressed with the communication, quote accuracy, and our new door! Thanks to all those involved in this project at Laflamme Contracting!
Mario, thank you for the follow-up work you’ve done at my house to fix the only problem I came across. I must say I am very impressed with your commitment to doing a quality job. My basement looks great because of the extra time and attention you, and your team took along the way. I would recommend your workmanship to anyone because of your dedication to doing the job right!
Thanks, Mario for your help in remodeling the 22-year old kitchen in our beautiful new home. You were candid, forthright, and upfront about all the details of the contract. With your help, we were able to acquire the kitchen of our dreams, match it to the style of our home, and arrange for all the work to be done in a timely and professional manner. We are grateful to you for your work in managing all the details.
I have recently hired Mario Laflamme Contracting to take over a renovation of my basement bathroom. The project was already underway and partially complete. I was very unhappy with the previous contractor who had begun the job. When Mario took over, there was a complete change in the mood and direction of the project. Communication was established immediately with both Mario and his crew who worked on the job. Mario was there every day to review progress and make sure everything was going according to the plan. If there were any glitches or hitches, which everyone has, I was informed, and solutions were formulated. Always paying attention to details was greatly appreciated. The quality and skill of the crew were also exemplary. People arrived on time, with the proper tools and materials. They took over the project and worked every day until completion. There was a time-line for completion and it was met to the very day. At the end of every day, the worksite was left in a tidy and safe manner. The previous contractor had left a horrendous mess every day when they left. Everyone who has used the bathroom is impressed by the tile work, the underfloor heating, and the quality of finishing. I have received many compliments from friends and family. Being a home inspector I know how a job should look when finished. I am very happy with the completed product. We had one small problem with a light, caused by the first contractor, Mario showed up with an electrician right away and fixed the problem at no extra cost. I would be happy to act as a reference for Mario Laflamme Contracting.
From June to Dec 2008, we substantially renovated and modified our entire 1970 Sherwood Park bungalow, demolishing the main floor right down to the 2×4 framing and plywood walls. All windows and interior walls were moved, to create a modern-day – open space concept. Mario was part of the team during those months, and his quality of work and attitude on the job was exceptional. When unique challenges arrived, it always seemed like he cared to make sure things were perfect. This meant checking with us (his customer), and meeting the same standards as if he were building it for his own family home. Various tasks carried out on the site included the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, and exterior – like siding and concrete work. We are very happy with the final result and the professional quality of the renovation!
Mario Laflamme was the lead contractor for our recently completed basement. We found Mario to be very professional in his approach, always open to suggestions and questions and we were very pleased with quality of the workmanship. The project included the full installation of one bedroom, a study ,a bathroom and a large rec room with bar area. Pictures are included under the projects tab on the web site . We are pleased to recommend Mario Laflamme Contracting.
Mario was the site supervisor for our recent landscape project. It involved the installation of a fence and sidewalk, re-grading of the site with construction of retaining walls and raised beds from stacking stone. The project also included organizing various sub-trades as well as the design and selection of plant materials. All work was completed to a very high standard, attention to detail, and proceeded in an organized and timely fashion. Mario was always accessible for any questions or concerns and we always felt confident our interests were his first priority. The project was ultimately completed on time and on budget and was a very positive experience for us. We would not hesitate to recommend Mario to anyone considering him for their project.
Mario has been a pleasure doing business with your company. You are a true professional making sure our bathroom renovations and expansion were done to our absolute satisfaction. The finished product is BEAUTIFUL thanks to Mario’s support, suggestions, and detailed work. We appreciated Mario’s team arriving exactly on time to demolish the existing bathroom in a cabin built over 50 years ago. As the project advanced Mario communicated and updated us on our choices of products (tile, vanity, storage cabinets, colors, shower installation, etc.) The result of our new bathroom, shower, and laundry area far exceeded our expectations and has received favorable comments from many friends and neighbors.
Mario Laflamme has managed two projects in our home. The first was the addition of a bathroom including a steam room in our basement. The second was landscaping our front yard. In both cases, the work was expertly done. We are extremely satisfied with the results. Mario and his team were a pleasure to work with and very tidy. Mario personally has a very artistic eye and gave us excellent design suggestions for both projects. We would use Mario again in the future without hesitation.
We found Mario to be very accommodating, helpful, and professional and provided helpful tips for the renovation for our basement, that took place fall of 2012. His crew was hardworking and kind and was also professional.
Thank You, Mario and Crew.
Mario did great work on a very complex job. He worked with us and the trades to produce a plan – there were no ‘surprise ‘ costs at the end. When there was an unexpected ‘hiccup’ in the plan – it was dealt with promptly and professionally. We were aware of and involved with the changes. Mario was prompt and courteous as were his workers.
Honestly, I can’t think of any ‘bad.’ We built our own house and I know nothing ever goes exactly according to plan. It’s how those hiccups are dealt with that makes a contractor good or bad.
When I need a contractor again I wouldn’t hesitate to call Mario up again.
Mario did an amazing job on my 1960’s, 1000 sq ft bungalow. Out with the worn carpet, in with laminate flooring. Out with the aged linoleum, in with the tile. Out with the old kitchen and in with new – totally new – plumbing, electrical, and cabinetry. Reconfigured, the new kitchen has more storage and more counter space, and looks wonderful, of course. All of it has been made possible by Mario and his crew. I’ve never felt that this was too small a job for Mario. I am treated well and listened to. Importantly, I was kept informed of what is happening and involved when decisions must be made. All of the workers, both his own and those contracted in, have been polite and done their jobs well. Mario expects good workmanship from everyone he hires. Is Mario the contractor I would recommend? Without any hesitation. Thank you, Mario, for all your hard work.
I hired Mario to build a pergola for my backyard. He finished the project within a few days and I was very happy with the end product. Mario and his staff were very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you, Mario.
We had Mario and company do a complete kitchen renovation which was recently completed. The finished product is everything we were hoping it would be and will be enjoying it for years to come. I was fortunate in that I was around for most of the work so can testify to the quality of workmanship and found the employees professional and personable. With any renovation, nothing goes exactly according to original plans but I think what impressed me most was how quickly and professionally each hiccup was dealt with and would not hesitate to recommend Mario Laflamme Contracting & Renovation Ltd. You may be able to find cheaper contractors but we found we paid a fair price for a quality product.
Mario and his team had some great ideas for remodeling our kitchen and materials that we never thought of. His communication and updates throughout the project were very much appreciated. His attention to detail ensured high-quality finishing. I recommended him to my picky dad!
We recently had Mario Laflamme Contracting Renovation LTD replace our 1993 vintage fence. Mario’s crew were able to remove our old fence and replace it with new pressure-treated lumber in a very timely manner and without damaging our lawn. The guys performed very high-quality work, we're able to minimize the amount of time our yard was exposed to a side alley that runs along one side and ensured the job site was cleaned every day. The finished product is beautiful and so now we are proud owners of a new fence that will last for many years to come. In fact, we now have the best looking fence in the neighborhood. I would recommend Mario Laflamme Contracting Renovation LTD to anyone looking for high-quality workmanship that is second to none. Thanks for everything Mario!!
