Ben and his co-worker came immediately after my dilemma with a flooded basement. They reassured me that they could fix... what was necessary as long as it was covered by insurance.

During the sale of my late mother's residence an extensive bit of water damage was noticed in the basement. Upon... notifying our insurance carrier, Trevor was dispatched very quickly to conduct an assessment. He found the source of the leak and determined the scope of the damage. The claim was processed quickly and even though this all occurred over Christmas the work was finished promptly and expertly by the Garbutt DKI crew. The basement has never looked better and the sale of the house is being finalized.Thank you to Trevor and his more

We had another company initially for our Insurance claim and were not happy. We were able to get Garbutt to come and... fix and complete what the other company could not. They were professional from the start and got out needs looked after in a timely fashion. Our house is now back together and we could not be happier with the quality of workmanship from more

A complete and thorough remediation of the mold in our parents' house was done in amazing time and with... professionalism. The work to be done was communicated thoroughly and all questions were answered so that we had no doubt about the work to be done. Progess was reported, keeping us well-informed. The work done was thorough and a clean-air certificate was provided. Trevor, the contractor was a great help, getting all the contents and junk removed from the house. We came to see the results of the work, and the house was left clean and more

Hi Jason,

My name is Nancy Avolio and I’m writing to thank you for your expert first responder assistance on Friday, November 9th, when you stopped to help my aunt, Ann MacMaster and her friend Marj in Tiverton.  I’m sorry for the delay in contacting you but I just received your information yesterday, as I don’t live in your area.  Both Ann and Marj are extremely grateful for your kindness and quick-thinking and reacting to the scary situation.

Ann is making a remarkable recovery, thanks to your kind and professional response.  It was so nice of you to stop to help.  Not everyone would take the time.  You jumped into action and I’m sure that’s a huge reason for Ann’s quick recovery.  Thank you so much for calling the ambulance, for getting the first aid kit from the store and for bandaging Ann’s head.  She is in her 90s but you’d never know it on an average day.  She is very independent and leads a rich and full life.

Again, thank you so much for your help!  With your medical assistance, the ambulance staff’s and the hospital staff’s, I’m sure it made the difference between life and death and we so appreciate everyone’s great efforts.  It’s so wonderful to know that there are kind and caring people like you in the world.  We are more grateful than you’ll ever know.

Thank you again and have a great day!

Frankly unbelievable. In this era of high expectations and mediocre service we were actually surprised and blessed by the entire experience. The people from DKI were accommodating and conscientious from beginning to end. And the sub-trades were no less impressive. Any time an item was questionable they chose to resolve in our favor resulting in a final product that was better than we had hoped for. They also looked after all the administration with the insurance company making even that aspect of it far more manageable than we would have thought possible. We can’t say enough about the entire experience. They were absolutely fantastic. Went way above what we expected.

W. Brow. William Hennessy Worshipful Master, Officers and brethren of Northern Light Lodge Stayner would like to thank you and Garbutt Construction for the quick response to our request for assistance after we discovered the damage to our building. The employees of Garbutt Const. have been very efficient and most respectful of our building and the furniture which we very much appreciate. Some of this furniture is quite old.

If there is anything that you require from us contact me and I will see to it that we accommodate your request.

The team that looked after our home under Trevor’s guidance was absolutely amazing, extremely professional and welcome in our home anytime.

During the very rainy days of June/17 my basement had water damage. My call to DKI was answered immediately and the project manager Trevor Jay was on the scene. By the end of the day all the carpet had been removed and blowers running to dry out the rooms. When the schedule was set for the repair all the phases were done on time. Trevor was very diligent to inspect throughout the process.

Thank you for your efficient and professional service. I am indeed impressed. I have already recommended you highly to friends and associates.

I can’t say enough good things about Garbutt Construction. The process was seamless and despite living in another city, my storm damage was responded to promptly and required no intervention on my part. It just got done. The work was of high quality and every detail was taken care of. I would highly recommend Garbutt to anyone looking for insurance repair work or construction in general.

New siding, new roof, bedroom ceiling painted and new cement floor in a large shed all done very well. Timely (given weather restrictions) and by pleasant, courteous and obviously experienced tradesmen.

I have told everyone who has asked about our situation in Collingwood, what a terrific job you have done handling everything.
As I was recovering from my broken leg and could not be particularly helpful, you and your team made all the decisions regarding refurbishing and the basement looks better then ever.
Now that I have a super system in place I am hopeful I will not have to deal with flooding again!

Thanks again.
