Do declining oil prices affect the Renovation industry?

Declining oil prices mean that 2015 will undoubtedly see as slump in the housing market in Alberta.  With most people likely more cautious to commit to a new home purchase, the economy promises to drive more people to renovate their home to suit their family needs.

When selecting a renovation contractor, it is crucial that you use one who is credible.  If you are unsure as to where to find a credible tradesman, contact companies such as the Better Business Bureau, SmartReno and TrustedPros.  We are affiliated with such companies because they work with contractors with a proven track record that the consumer can trust!

As one of the highest rated renovation contractors with SmartReno in Calgary, we successfully completed 17 renovation projects for consumers who we were introduced to through their service in 2014!   We also received multiple successful leads through the Better Business Bureau from homeowners contacting them for renovation contractors holding an A+ accredited rating with the BBB!

Isn’t it important to work with a company that you know is experienced and trustworthy when it involves your most valuable possession?

We have talked in previous blogs about the importance of checking out any potential contractor’s qualifications.   It is important for you, as homeowners, to ensure that your renovation contractor is legitimate.  Like South Calgary Dreambuilders, your contractor should be licensed both provincially and municipally.  Any renovation business that requires either a deposit or progress draw payments (lets be honest … on any major renovation this will be a requirement) is legally bound to be licensed by the Province of Alberta.  This means that we are bonded, and able to apply for and receive local building permits for your project.   In fact, the City of Calgary requires that a renovation contractor be licensed and bonded with the province before they will issue a Business License!

As well, South Calgary Dreambuilders is insured and maintains an account in good standing with WCB.

So, if you or anybody your know is considering renovating in 2015, please introduce them to us!!!  As our way of saying thank you, we will happily provide you with a referral bonus on any completed project with a client that you have introduced us to!
