We hired TBC Contracting in the late fall of 2006 to completely renovate an existing old farm house into a 1940's period wineshop that now occupies the main level and 1000 sq ft mission style apartment upstairs. Both areas required high levels of detail and superior workmanship to achieve what we were striving for.
 
Don and his team quickly and efficiently undertook the dismantling of the old structure under difficult weather conditions and actually framed and rooved the entirely new upper story by December 15th.  Wow!  During the construction many obstacles were presented by the original structure but with the insight and knowledge of Bob Tourigny these were quickly and easily overcome.  Don Tilling, with his background as a Journeyman Painter, guided the project through all the finishing details.
 
What we really enjoyed with TBC was their constant attention to our final cost and their interest in the final outcome of our project.  The project was completed well within budget and ahead of time.  Many thanks to Don Tillling and the TBC team!

June 8th 2011  
I purchased a new mobile home in Creston while I was still living in Calgary. The home was just the basic unit on a lot that had seen better days. I wanted an addition and deck built together with the lot landscaped to a no-maintenance level. I needed one contractor to handle everything because I could not get down there very often. I contacted (or tried to contact) a number of contractors but received little or unimpressive responses. I found TB Contractors on the internet and on discussing the project with Don Tilling on the phone we arranged to meet in Creston.

When I did meet him and some of his guys their professionalism gave me a very good gut feeling. I gave an outline of what I planned and said that I wanted everything looked after by him, and I meant everything. Don suggested I visited a custom house that they were just finishing to check out the craftsmanship. I took him up on this offer and was very impressed with the house. Don said that it would not be a problem handling everything and I engaged TB Contractors after the project was quoted.

Don was very true to his word and I had to do nothing. I got regular updates and pictures from him and if a problem was encountered he either handled it or we discussed on the phone with him suggesting a solution. He was also pleased to include other things I added along the way.

The work was completed to a very high standard and I was extremely satisfied. I looked even better than I had envisioned and some of the touches were a pleasant surprise.

Don did many things over and above requirements. Even after the job was finished he offered to arrange for a heat pump to be installed (which was not part of the contract). He looked after getting quotes, arranging schedules and even arranged for grants from the Government. This was a great help to me.

I would highly recommend TB Contractors and Don Tilling to anyone who is looking for a contractor of high standards who is willing to do smaller as well as larger projects.

"We would highly recommend T.B. Contracting
to anyone wanting to renovate or build a new home."
 
August 21, 2008
We purchased an older home in West Creston which was in desperate need of a major renovation.  We were living in Calgary so tried via the internet to find a
contractor who was able to do the renovation for us.  After several phone calls and unanswered e-mails we were getting very disillusioned.  Our real estate agent
suggested that we try T.B. Contracting, which we did, we met with Don and Bob at the house in Creston and went over the project with them.  Both of these guys
are unbelievable people.
 
We left the project in their capable hands whilst we were still living in Calgary.  The standard of work, the work ethics and the craftsmanship received from the
team of guys working on our home was excellent. We are so happy with the results, you would never know that it is the same house that they ripped apart.
 
We would highly recommend T.B. Contracting to anyone wanting to renovate or build a new home.
 
Sincerely
Ron and Lynne
