Major Home Renovation in Winnipeg
We recently underwent a major renovation on the main level of our new home. We’d met with a few contractors before Creative Design Contractors but none of them felt like a right fit. We were nearing our possession date and needed to find someone fast so on the recommendation of our designer we met with Jason. We immediately knew we’d found the right person for the job. His passion, dedication and professionalism were obvious from the start and never wavered. Luckily for us, Jason was able to get up to speed quickly, provided us with a quote that we reviewed and worked together to identify additional costs savings by supplying some materials ourselves, using a few independent trades’ people we knew and salvaging materials. We were also very happy to hear that they guaranteed their work for two years.
From day one we were impressed with the entire team at Creative Design Contractors. Everyone who worked on our home was knowledgeable in their craft, professional, listened to our questions or concerns, responded quickly to calls/texts and always respectful, friendly and fun to be around. We trusted these people, which was important considering everyone had full access to our home day and night. Jason and his team worked diligently to deliver a finished product we could all be proud of. The level of detail was evident in everything they did from refinishing walls, installing lights, windows, trim, kitchen cabinets, appliances, plumbing and more. If we hired an independent trade’s person, Jason and his team worked with them to ensure everything was completed as planned. Issues or addendums were addressed quickly, with options and always in consideration of our budget. Deficiencies noted during the final walkthrough were dealt with before our final move in. Even an issue we had a few weeks after the renovation was completed and resolved quickly. My husband and I often joked that for three months there was a third person in our relationship…Jason. He is always connected to you, letting you know how the project is progressing; putting your mind at ease when issues come up and ensuring you are still on track to meet your target budget and completion date. In the end, we were ecstatic that we did come in close to our original budget and completion date, which were only off because of an unforeseen issue had with a supplier we chose to use.
My husband always says in life, as in business, you always want to be around and work with people you like, are comfortable with and respect. This was the case with Jason and his team. This company takes great pride in everything they do and we couldn’t imagine having gone through this renovation with anyone else. We’ve used them since for small projects and will continue to use them again and again. So if you are looking for a contractor then look no further because this is the one for you, we can honestly say you will not be disappointed. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Creative Design Contractors for helping us to build our dream home, we couldn’t have done it without all of you.
It was a pleasure to work with Jason and his team. A schedule was provided to us prior to the start of the project, and other than a few very small items, the schedule was followed almost to the day (even early sometimes!) – this was much appreciated as the project was somewhat time sensitive. The crew was very professional. Any issues that came up were addressed promptly. We are very happy with the finished product and would not hesitate to work with Jason and his team in the future.

Creative Kitchen Renovation in Winnipeg
“We had the pleasure of working with Jason Haddad and his crew from Creative Design Contractors. We had a designer that he worked closely with. We ran into building challenges that we would never of know about until demolition took place. Jason was able to trouble shoot so I was able to get the dream kitchen we so hoped for. Walls were moved , chimney stacks moved, new windows created in spaces that didn’t previously have windows. A laundry room demolished to expand the kitchen and a new laundry room built in a new location. It all came together beautifully. When we had an issue with a supplier that we had contacted independently from Creative Design for our counters Jason took the lead and troubleshooted the problem we had with that supplier. Jason always responded in a timely matter and was very respectful of both our budget as well as our time line . When the kitchen and renovations were completed, and we needed any adjustments he continued to return phone calls in a timely manner. Jason is a man that takes pride in his work , honest and a man of integrity.”

Basement Renovation in Winnipeg
“We had the privilege of having Creative Design Contractors remodel and complete our entire basement. The company and the crew were very professional and respectful while working in the basement and on our property. We really appreciated their attention to detail at every step of the process from the initial framing until the final finishing touches.
We really felt that they wanted to the finished product to be something that not only we loved but that they were proud of as well.
One of the things that we really liked about the company was the fact that they allowed us to design our own space but also gave us suggestions, based on their expertise, to make it better. Jason helped us pick materials and colours that would look great in the space. We wanted to make a secret door to a kid’s room and it was fun working with them to design it.
The end result is a space that is finished professionally and that we love! There is really nothing that we would change! Jason hires experts that have specialized skills so we felt confident in every stage of the process. We love the overall design and our favorite part is the feature wall made of stone with space for our TV and fireplace. Creative Design Contractors did an amazing job and we would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to create a beautiful and well-made space in their home!
Thanks again for an amazing job!!”

“We wanted to send you a thank you to you and your colleagues for a job well done on our kitchen reno! We love it and so have many others we’ve shown it off to. There are very few days when Janine doesn’t say,’ I love my kitchen’!!
Heading into this project was one of the biggest we’d tackled so far and the first we let someone else take it on for us. When talking to others about their renovation nightmares and the length of time it took to complete the work added an extra layer of worry. Many folks we’d spoken to indicated that if we were told it would take 3 months…that translated into 6 months. That stereotype of contractors not delivering on time and on budget was put to rest under your direction Jason. You got it done for us and our level of stress and decision making was minimal.
The work was done on time, done well, and especially to our liking. We came home everyday to see something else completed and you kept us informed along the way. We felt it was our project and never felt pressured to compromise nor feel that our requests were unreasonable. Big or small you treated us in a supportive and accommodating manner.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone planning to renovate or embark on a construction project in and around their home. We will certainly call you again when the time arises. A job well done Jason!!! Thank you again! “

Bathroom Renovation in Winnipeg
“My wife and I recently contracted Creative Design Contractors Ltd. to complete bathroom and laundry room renovations. From our first meeting, we found Mr. Haddad to be friendly and professional. He listened to our needs and created a plan that suited our family’s schedule. Creative Design’s general contractors were very friendly and accommodating. The workmanship was of excellent quality and our house was always clean when the day’s work was done. The sub-contractors employed by Creative Design were also easy to work with and the workmanship was of the highest quality, especially in the area of tiling and plumbing. Throughout the project, Mr. Haddad maintained regular communication and the job was complete in timely fashion. Overall, we are very pleased with the renovations completed by Creative Design Contractors Ltd.”

Basement Renovation in Winnipeg
“In late 2010 we decided to renovate our unfinished basement and went through the normal process of asking friends and co-workers if they knew anyone to do the work. We searched the internet extensively and ran across the Creative Design Contractors website. The work on the website looked great and the testimonials sounded positive. When Jason Haddad from Creative Design Contractors came to our home in mid December to review what we wanted and to provide a quote we immediately had a good feeling about him. It was evident from our first meeting that he knew what he was doing and had many great suggestions on what we could do with the unfinished space.
Right from our first meeting, we made a personal connection with him as he presented himself in a friendly and professional manner. He was very responsive with the quote and was open to modifying the work to be done to meet our budget. Once we worked out the details of the plan and agreed upon price, he immediately had his team on the job and started the work. We have heard of so many horror stories about contractors starting out strong and then the customer service level and communications start to drop off. This was not the case with Jason and his team. Jason made it a point to provide almost a daily update on what was planned, who was going to be at the house and introduced us to each member of his team.
We were incredibly impressed with every tradesperson who came to our house as they were friendly, professional, efficient, and very competent at their trade. We were always comfortable speaking to each of them. They were open and patient with our questions and slight modifications to the original plan.
Again, the level of communication between Jason, the sub-contractors and us was excellent throughout the whole process. The quality of work each person did was excellent and we cannot express how happy we are with the finished product. Our basement looks amazing and every person who sees it raves at the quality of craftsmanship and how great it looks. We cannot wait to get home from work each day so that we can enjoy our new space!
We were so happy with his work, we had him do a second renovation to the ceiling on the main floor of our house, and again, they did an amazing job.
Although there were many people who did excellent work on our renovation, we would like to provide special recognition to Conrad who spent many days and countless hours on the finishing touches which brought the whole look and feel together. His positive attitude, excellent work ethic and attention to detail was greatly appreciated.
We tell everyone we know how happy we are with Jason and the whole process was amazing.
We have recommended Jason to our best friends who were looking to do a renovation project at their home and if you are looking for a contractor, look no further, you have found the right guy!”

“We hired this company to renovate our basement. We had very specific requests and ideas but were uncertain how it would all fit together assisted us in creating an amazing plan for our basement. His crew are professional, courteous and very hard working. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and dedication to our basement shown by each of the trades involved. Jason was always available whenever we needed to contact him with yet another request, question or just to see how things were going. We always felt involved in our project and were so impressed with how our ideas were made reality before our eyes. We were able to speak directly with the trades people doing the work and with the contractor whenever we requested. Being able to work together as part of this team led to a basement we had only dreamed of. We would highly recommend this company for any renovation you may have. We did meet numerous contractors when trying to decide on our job….Jason impressed us from the beginning in professionalism, competitive quote and a crew capable of completing the job in a timely manner. Deadlines, budget and contract outline has been met throughout the job. We have not been disappointed in our decision. A large project like this has been smooth thanks to the excellent work from Jason and his team. We would proudly show our basement to anyone who is considering hiring this company.”
“Jason and his crew were great to deal with. Jason was super about keeping us in the communication loop, even when there was nothing to communicate (i.e. we were waiting on the permit inspector, etc). He was very helpful in dealing with the red tape of the entire permit application process and even went to bat for us directly to the permit people so that we, being highly inexperienced, wouldn’t have to. He was also very mindful of our budget and was always upfront and straightforward about costs and how things would impact budget.”
“Most of the work was done on time, and people were here when we expected them to be. If there was a glitch here or there Jason was always on top of it and would give us updates on what was happening if things hadn’t turned out according to plan. He was also great in helping us with the creative part of it – we just needed a room built, had no idea how it should work and he was very helpful with ideas about what would be best for our space.”
“Most importantly to most would be the final bill – it was EXACTLY what Jason had told us it would be. We had added a few extra projects not in the initial quote and when we did receive the final bill it was what we were expecting, which was refreshing – so often you find that the final bill is not exactly what you had hoped.”
“Our project was fairly straightforward but of course had a few bumps in the road but Jason was great help. It was completed on time, and looks amazing – we receive many compliments on the work. We have already recommended Creative Design to others and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.”
