After a total kitchen renovation, the only detail left was a tile backsplash. On the recommendation of friends, we hired Walker Home Solutions, and are very, very happy with the result.
Ben’s attention to detail was impressive. We had purchased our tile separately, and during the job prep Ben noted that all of the tiles had small surface scratches. We would not have noticed this ourselves, but Ben knew what to look for and pointed it out to us, recommending that we return the tiles as they were defective. He then phoned around to find a supplier that carried a similar product, and he asked the right questions to ensure the tiles were of good quality. Ben also provided invaluable guidance in helping us select a grout colour that we would be happy with.
There were a number of irregularities with this job. Ben listened to understand how we wanted to approach these and what the end result was that we desired. He offered suggestions as well, and re-confirmed the plan before starting work, also checking in as the job proceeded to make sure he was doing things according to what had been agreed.
Ben and his assistant were very respectful of our time and space, particularly as we were at home during most of the time the work was being done. They were polite and considerate, for example checking to see whether we preferred they finish work for the day so as not to interfere with our suppertime, or whether we were OK with them working late in order to get the job done that day.
Once the job was finished, the clean up was impeccable, and we were left feeling that Ben truly valued our business now and in the future. We are thrilled with the work he did for us, and have no hesitation in recommending him. Should we need additional home renovation work done in the future, we will certainly be calling Walker Home Solutions.
What makes dealing with Ben at WHS special is his acutely tuned knowledge of all trades. I had a walnut live edge table built with him, and it came out like glass in the end, with custom welded beefy metal legs. He understands that quality and follow-through in this business is what people want most, and he delivered.
The team at Walker Home Solutions were incredible! They did an amazing job at helping me finish off my condo. Attention to detail is something i had never experienced before like this and i have to say after having It I’ll never not go to Walker home solution. Don’t hesitate to use them for anything you need! Thanks guys !!!
Walker Home Solutions says it all: innovative and cost effective solutions for my home repair, maintenance and bigger projects requiring multiple skill sets.
The challenging and diverse scopes of work were ‘no problem” because of WHS depth and breadth of experience and expertise.
‘Special considerations’ needed because of my exacting requirements were well understood. Work was then delivered independently, ‘right the first time’, ‘on time’ and ‘stress-free’.
More important is WHS professionalism and courtesy.
It is a pleasure to recommend Walker Home Solutions.
Walker Home Solutions, in my and wife’s opinion is one of the best, if not the best contractors in Vancouver Island. Ben Walker is very knowledge about his work. We hired Ben to do renovation in our basement suite. He made this look easy and painless, even with the changes we made after the renovations had begun. Renovations were completed within a reasonable time and Ben would attended to all the little issues that arose, right away. We how have Walker Home Solutions do all our home repairs. We also feel that costs were fair and reasonable.
I own a large old home that needs a lot of attention but could easily turn into a money pit. Ben is a great communicator and makes it clear what needs to be done and what can wait. He is respectful of budgets and prioritizes repairs the way an auto shop should check brakes when tires are changed. He always cleans up after himself and makes a point of getting extra help to make messy jobs go by more quickly. I would recommend Ben to anyone for large jobs and small jobs alike. He is fair, polite, cost conscious, considerate and most importantly knowledgeable and capable.
Ben walker is a one man operation that accesses a young but competent crew.
We contracted Ben to reno our kitchen using Ikea cabinets. He helped redesign the layout including the re-location of the range, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. He chose the materials we needed, made suggestions to save costs and warned us when to not go cheap. Ben was helpful and willing to work with us during the entire project showing great patience while suggesting improvements and changes when needed. There was, to my mind, tricky wiring and plumbing involved as well.
The kitchen actually turned out better than I expected.
Thumbs up for approachability, competence, knowledge (not his first rodeo, you could tell), creativity and dependability.
Mr Walker presented a very professional approach that was much appreciated.
Job done virtually on time and within budget. Would re-hire at any time and probably will.
Ben & his team are great to work with. High quality work at reasonable rates. Always explains what he’s doing so as homeowners we understand. I would not hesitate to hire them for my next project.
