I know Steve Greene for about half a year now and from the start I had the impression that he was very serious about his business. I had the pleasure of visiting some of his projects and the look, feel and finish radiates professionalism.

So when we hired Steve for paintwork of the whole house, and replacing all baseboards and trimming our expectations were high and we weren’t disappointed. Not only his own work is excellent, he also surrounds himself with trades people who strive for the same level of expertise. We were impressed. Besides that the whole team worked very efficient, clean and not unimportant the job was finished in the promised time frame.

I definitely recommend Steve’s company Allendale Construction for any residential renovation, big or small.

Allendale Construction is a new business owned by a very experienced, talented and efficient owner, Stephen Greene. Steve has been working with me on my home renovations over the last few months.

Stephen first worked in my home on a small basement renovation. His work was excellent, so I asked him to do a top to bottom renovation. I am delighted with the final product. The basement is now a bright, inviting lower level where I expect to spend many a winter evening watching movies and entertaining.

Recently when I was purchasing a condo in a downtown high rise, I called Stephen to see if he could modernise the unit. The ‘bones’ were good but dated. New flooring was needed in the bedrooms and kitchen. The kitchen had to be gutted and redone from top to bottom. A wall had to be taken down to open up the living space. A feature wall was created through the installation of natural stone and a beautiful travertine tile floor was layed in the kitchen. When Stephen said it could be done on my time line and budget, I bought the condo.

This renovation is now coming to completion and it surpasses my expectations. As a result of this renovation, my condo has changed from an older styled home in a spectacular downtown location to a modern up-scale high-end home. I was amazed at the quality of workmanship of the job. To say Stephen is a highly talented carpenter is an understatement. He also has an expertise working with stone, drywall and flooring.

As the general contractor he brought in a talented painter, plumber, electrician and tile layer. Each tradesman demonstrated a high level of expertise and I am totally delighted with the final product.

I have referred Stephen to a number of friends who are delighted with his work. I will continue to promote Stephen’s business as he is the best general contractor I have ever worked with over the years.

Thank you, Stephen, for all your hard work on my projects and I wish you the best in the future.

If you expect high standards with no compromises when you work with a contractor, then you should hire Steve Greene, Owner of Allendale Construction. Not only is he deep in experience which allows him to build tremendous value into his quotes, he also treats his sub-trades with respect and he keeps them very busy, so you know that the whole job will go well when you work with Steve.

During our Business Building Interview one of the key things that I learned is that he is highly intelligent and passionate. This means that he learns quickly and wants to move on so he can learn even more. For example, he spent a number of years working in a house-building pre-fabrication shop where they made all the parts to assemble a full house. Within that time he did every aspect of production, which, combined with his overall experience, means that he now understands every detail of every job that he works on. So when he works on your home renovation you know that he will be able to successfully source the right materials and also be able to put them put together on time and on budget. Throughout his career he has also risen up through progressive levels of responsibility, which means that he has the management experience he needs to be an outstanding contractor.

Steve also takes the time to give back. He recently donated his skills towards the building of a playground and he plans to donate a portion of his time every year to a project of this nature.

Steve works well on a variety of renovation projects from basements to bathrooms to back-yards. He also does highly sought after custom work. During this process he works closely with his clients to truly understand what they are looking for. Then he does extensive research to find the right materials and finally he ensures that every custom job is done properly the first time, so that his clients are fully satisfied.

One of Steve’s ideal clients is a single dwelling homeowner who is ready and able to afford a change to their house. He also has the ability and resources to work on a variety of general contracting projects.

So if you’re want ‘home renos done right’ by an experienced contractor who is an honest straight shooter, then call Steve Greene at Allendale Construction.

Steve Greene, Owner/Operator of Allendale Construction, has been a close friend and colleague for a year. He has worked on my own home and we have become great friends along the way.

I was recently approached by a colleague in my office about a bathtub issue she and her boyfriend had been having in their apartment. I quickly referred her to Steve and had her ask Steve to look into the issue. The landlord in this situation was in Calgary and was in no position to help out.

Steve jumped right in and did what he does, fix the tub with a temporary solution until his bid for the job was approved. Once he was given the go-ahead to proceed, he got there and repaired this significant issue. It was a long and tedious process, but the end result was fantastic for this client.

There are two things about Steve Greene that have always impressed me, his unwavering sense of integrity and ‘customer first’ attitude. Steve is wholeheartedly dedicated to his clients and this is something about him that I admire greatly!
