The following are a collection of testimonials from satisfied clients, homeowners and those who have worked with Greener Homes Ltd.
Working with Dave from Greener Homes to renovate the exterior of our home was a good experience. The scheduling worked well for us. The work was completed in the time frame on our contract, even though we made some changes. Dave checked the work being done almost daily letting us know what was coming up next. The subcontractors were all great, cleaning up daily, & they were very respectful of our neighbours needs. We were very satisfied with the quality of the work done. We would definitely use Greener Homes again. We appreciated Dave’s suggestions which greatly improved the final look of our home’s exterior.Al & Wendy D.
Having my home built by Greener Homes* was a fun and enjoyable experience. Dave Wolfe was extremely knowledgeable and made sure nothing was done less than to perfection. He was considerate of what exactly I wanted in my home and where I wanted it, the choice was mine! I’ve been in my home for a year now and I wouldn’t change anything. I am more than happy with the outcome and the experience. It was truly a custom built home. I would strongly recommend building with Greener Homes!Jackie Reger
My experience with Greener Homes* was that Dave settles for nothing less than perfection. Superior workmanship and a keen eye to detail are a given. So I knew I was getting the highest return on my investment for a very reasonable rate. I found that Dave and his crew are patient, accommodating and tidy all the while staying on schedule and on budget. With Greener Homes, making decisions was a stress-free experience. I have and will highly recommend Greener Homes to anyone looking for a renovation or a new home.
Ps. They even recycled the leftover building materials.
Good Job Guys!Mary S.
Greener Homes* came and did our complete basement renovation in Jan 2012. Dave and his crew did such a wonderful job that I personally recommend Greener Homes to people who are in the renovating or housing market. Talking to the inspectors as they came through to inspect the work they commented that he’s always consistent, does excellent work and they liked the fact that he goes out of his way to find the best in the building industry for his trades and products. When hiring Dave he made a comment to me that made me realize he was the right guy for the job: “most people don’t think about what’s inside the walls only how pretty it looks when its done”. He makes sure that his company strives to build for the future. Spray foam insulation in the walls and properly sealing all windows and the ducting are a few examples of where no short cuts were taken. I discovered its very important to help keep the home comfortable and saves me money every day. The basement is finally warm. Our next home will be built by Greener Homes.Jason & Christine N.
As a mortgage professional I get to work with plenty of builders in a year. Lots of them are great, and surprisingly lots of them are terrible. Greener Homes* has been excellent to work with on numerous occasions, as they are willing to be flexible and patient with customers. When customers are stressed out due to their builder, the mortgage broker 9 times out of 10 will hear all about it. All the builds I have financed for Greener Homes customers have been excellent on my end, and excellent for the customers. Never has there been complaints from the customer regarding the process, timing, product, etc. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, Dave at Greener Homes is honestly passionate about creating a home that is well crafted, designed and truly energy efficient. They take great pride in reducing the foot print “we” have on the world. Greener Homes and the owner Dave Wolfe, have a product definitely worth recommending. All the best!Graham Reimer, AMP
Here is why we would not hesitate to recommend Dave Wolfe and Greener Homes to anyone interested in building a quality Green home.
We came to Dave with a vision, one that had started in the early ‘70’s. That vision was of an environmentally friendly home, which harnessed the readily available power of the earth and sun. We had drawn our own plans and designed the exterior and interior of the home based on our lifestyle.
The first thing that impressed us about Dave was that he listened. He insured he understood just what it was we envisioned, then, using his expertise in the green building field, worked with us to refine those visions. He communicated with us throughout the process to insure that he was still onside with what we wanted and budgeted, especially if changes needed to be made. In the end he not only gave us more than what we wanted but he was finished early and on budget.
The second thing that impressed us about Dave was his attention to details. From the excavation, to the last speck of dust in the house before we moved in, Dave ensured that everything was done right or done over. He was always there filling in the gaps, monitoring the work, making sure even the hidden places were above standard.
Dave does not just give lip service to Green. It is what he does. It is where he lives, with his own home rated a 97 on the energy guide. His recycling trailers were out front through the whole build. There was never any building litter in the house or in the yard. The materials used in the home, from the recycled lumber to the zero VOC paint were chosen based on their impact on the environment. The home construction methods and materials were chosen with the concept that it is greener to build it right once than to have to replace or repair it down the road.
Building this new home was a major event in our lives. Thanks to Dave, we enjoyed the process of building our new home from start to finish. People who visit our home are impressed with its comfort. They notice the evenness of the temperature through the whole house, thanks to the sealed envelope and the geothermal heating. They are impressed by the energy savings achieved by the solar panels and the fact that we can sell power back to the grid at a rate higher than we buy it. But the best response we get is “this feels like home”.
Thank you Dave, for our new HOME.Carmen & Lorne Petty
Because of my work and background in renewable energy systems, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources are of huge importance to me; so when my wife and I decided to build, these were at the top of our list of priorities. We wanted a home that not only looked great but performed to the same standard when it came to utility bills. We visited with other builders in town and finally we were introduced to Dave Wolfe of Greener Homes Ltd by a mutual acquaintance.
He showed us his own home, which doubles as a show home, talked to us about how he creates his building envelope and he listened to what we wanted from our home. We had been to other builders who were less than happy to accommodate certain renewable technologies which were, to us, nonnegotiable. Dave not only allowed us to have Solar PV and Geothermal Heating/Cooling but encouraged us to do so as his own home has the same technology.
My wife and I had complete control over house design, contents, and decor. We were given a plan, based on what we had spoken to Dave about, that worked pretty good for us but not completely. So we changed the plan to accommodate our desires including a private upper deck off the master bedroom and an indoor/outdoor dog run behind the attached double garage amongst others. Between ourselves and Greener Homes we soon had the house we wanted on paper.
The build was flawless; Dave oversaw all the work himself and made sure all the work was carried out to his high standards. My wife and I were also allowed to view the house at all the stages of build from foundation to final product, we compiled a photo diary of the build so we know our house inside and out which is really comforting to anyone when buying/building a new home. Seeing the 2×8 timbers used in framing filled with the spray foam insulation, as opposed to 2 x 6 timbers more commonly used, gave us the confidence that this house would do everything Greener Homes said it would regarding the energy efficiency.
Our house is now complete and we have been living here for 3 months now, we could not be happier with what Greener Homes Ltd did for us. They delivered in every sense of the word for us and I fully recommend them to anyone looking to build an energy efficient home.”Ian & Melanie Magill
As part of my job, I work with builders and homeowners in educating them about building efficient homes. We work with Natural Resources Canada and Built Green Canada in awarding homes an EnerGuide Rating, Built Green Label, and ENERGY STAR certification. Dave Wolfe works closely with us to ensure homes achieve the highest standard of efficiency. As part of our services we independently blower door test every home to ensure proper air sealing of the home as well as inspect insulation and heating system efficiency. Dave takes pride in the home’s overall EnerGuide rating and air sealing rating in every home, wanting and expecting the best. In every home Greener Homes build, perfection is Dave’s expectation. Quality is consistent and efficiency, air quality and low energy costs are a priority for Dave Wolfe.Jason Clifton, CEA
Greener Homes recently finished our basement and I was blown away. Not only was Dave the most knowledgeable person that I had in to quote, but he came though on everything that we discussed and more.
Our project included adding weeping tile to take care of our four sup-pump situation, and making a 55 year old basement livable. We really have only compliments to give Dave and all of his contractors. They were all very professional, always there then they said they would be and their work was excellent. Our basement is now our favourite place to be and all the finishing touches that Dave suggested has truly made it customized to us. I have never meet a owner of a company that goes over and above in his work, you truly feel how important this project is not only to you but to everybody who is working on it. When the project was completed Lethbridge had that week of rain and Dave phoned to make sure that everything was ok, and it was. We would absolutely recommend Greener Homes for any renovation and if we ever build will definitely use Greener Homes. Thank you Dave !!Janet H
