In October 2016, we contacted Cory Janzen to take a look at a bay window sill in our living room that was rotting.  Cory came over the same day as I called to review the window issues.  He went over the details of what had to be done to correct the problem and provided us with a quote within 3 days.  The quote outlined the cost of repairs for a worst case scenario.  After receiving our go ahead Cory’s repair team began work about a week later.  All of the construction workers for Janzen Builders were caring, considerate, respectful and on time – we especially liked the carpenter.  The workers kept me updated on what had to be done to correct the issues throughout the project.  The work was completed within 4 days – once the repairs were started there was never any delays or interruptions. 

Thankfully the cost of the repairs were less than half of what I was quoted.  The bill listed all of the material and the hours of labor for each worker.  I found Cory Janzen to be a truly professional contractor – he was honest, always returned my texts and phone calls, and made sure the work was done correctly.  If I ever need a contractor again, I will be calling Cory Janzen.  I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone in South East Alberta.

For almost two decades we have turned to Janzen Builders for repairs and renovations to our homes. No job has been too small or too big for them. At our first house, they added a slope to the previously flat and leaky roof of an addition. For house number two, they replaced the shingles and eavestroughing after a major hailstorm. And for our current home, we’ve employed them to completely strip and re-build a custom shower in the ensuite, remodel another entire bathroom, construct a two-tier deck, and replace a somewhat complicated custom fence. In addition to all this, Janzen Builders has tackled several smaller repair jobs for us.

In all these projects, Cory and his crew have gone out of their way to ensure that their work, and the work of their sub-trades, is exemplary, and that the final product always lives up to their exacting standards. They have treated us and our homes with respect. As a result, we have complete confidence and trust in them and in their advice and recommendations. Janzen Builders’ reputation for great work done with the utmost professionalism and integrity is well-earned and well-deserved.

In 2010 we asked Janzen Builders to construct our log home package. They were involved right from the planning and ground work to turning the key in the finished door. Every step along the way we were impressed with their level of professionalism, expertise, and pure craftsmanship in building our home. Cory allowed us to be very involved throughout the entire process and put our personal touches to it. This gives us a deep sense of connection to our home.

Log building requires a special set of skills and based on their reputation and experience, Janzen Builders were our first and only choice in a home builder.

We strongly recommend choosing Janzen Builders to build your home.

My family had the pleasure of having Janzen Builders remodel our home. We were in desperation mode as we found black mold throughout our house that was making us all sick. Cory and his team jumped in immediately. We were so impressed by the work they did for us. We could see progress on a daily basis.

The work they did was impecable, anything less than perfect was never acceptable. We would highly recommend Janzen Builders to everyone and would give our own personal guarantee that you wouldn’t be disappointed. Thank you Janzen Builders for building us our dream home!!

Janzen Builders have done two renovations for me. One was very large and complicated, that involved the rebuilding of two outside walls from the footings to the roof and included inside finishes, electrical and windows. The second was a renovation to a bathroom on the second floor that included electrical, plumbing, new walls and ceiling and a new shower.

Their prices are fair and reasonable. The workmen were respectful, friendly and skilled. During the construction process there was open and timely discussion regarding the progress of the work and clarification of any special requirements. At the end of the job everything was left clean and neat, and the completed work was excellent.

I would enthusiastically endorse and recommend Janzen Builders.
