Subject: Thank you for your first responder assistance


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.


I’d like to send you a thank you card and I’m wondering if I should mail it to the following address or if there’s another you prefer:

With the mail strike, it may take a while to get to you.  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!



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.
Regards, Margo Bulmer

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.
