Very Happy with the New Bathroom
We are very happy with our new bathroom.
Herb was great to deal with from day one. He provided us with a reasonable quote then actually stuck to that budget. There was zero surprises.
Both Herb and Mark were professional, and easy to deal with. They always made sure we were happy every step of the way. They never argued anything we asked for.
The team was great with our 3 year old, they respected our home and made sure that everything was clean at the end of each night. I never had to pick up after them or feel like my son could hurt himself on anything.
There was one tile that did not sit well on the tub, we mentioned it to Mark and Herb. Mark showed up the next morning and ripped out 6 tiles and replaced them so everything is perfect. We were shocked! Great service! They really do go above and beyond to make sure the job is done right.
Even after they got payed they showed up the second we mentioned we wanted something tweaked.
We are super happy with their work and would recommend them and plan on rehiring them in the future!
Respectful, Clean Service
We were very happy with the workmanship and how quickly Mark got the job done. We only have the one bathroom so it was important to have the bathroom as quickly as possible. Mark completed the job in two days. He kept our home clean and was respectful of us and our home. Mark removed all the garbage and we are very happy with our new bathroom.

Always Pleased with Workmanship
We had a hole in the bladder under our home And had Herb and his helpers (Rich and Brayden, young men that Herb is teaching) come in to repair it. While he was under there he noticed that whoever had put the heat tape on our water supply line had insulated it with foam tubing (this was done prior to us purchasing the home and by another repair guy). Herb immediately brought this to our attention because it's a fire hazard. He and the young lads removed the foam insulation and replaced the heat tape and installed the correct type of insulation.
This is not the first time we have had Herb in to do repairs and are always pleased with his workmanship, professionalism, honesty and pricing.
We highly recommend Versatile Renovations. Thanks again Herb and Trista.
Herb removed it all and installed new heat tape and the proper insulation.
Thank you Herb

Fixed Perfectly, Correctly, and for a Reasonable Price
Versatile just finished a bathroom renovation with steam shower as well as a few other items in my house.
From the very beginning I could tell that Herb was as honest and upfront of a contractor as I had ever met. It was a bit of a wait to get him and his crew on site. But now that I know the level of workmanship that these guys provide, I will happily wait until they are available.
Mark was the foreman on our job and he worked like a dog from day one and was always a pleasure to deal with. My wife was at home most of the time during the reno and she said she never once saw him sit down in the 10 days of the renovation.
A few issues came up during the project as they always will. Herb was quick to bring them to my attention, and they were sorted out immediately. Everything was addressed and brought up to code.
His pricing is transparent and absolutely fair and reasonable.
During the work I had the guys also install a new hot water tank, dryer vent, main water service valve and water de-scaler. Even with the extra additions they still finished the job on the original schedule and everything came out perfect.
I would not recommend him for anyone looking to take shortcuts to keep prices down. But if you want everything fixed perfectly, correctly, and for a reasonable price, he's your guy.
I'll have them back soon for further renovation work. No question at all.

No Hesitation in Hiring Versatile Renovations for Future Projects
Herb and Mark recently renovated our full and half bathrooms. From the quoting process through the renovation, Versatile Renovations was the best contracting company I have ever dealt with. Herb's quoting process was extremely detailed and transparent, giving me comfort the job would be done thoroughly and honestly. I was also impressed with Versatile's use of high quality materials vs. the builder grade materials most contractors seem to use. Mark and Herb showed up early and stayed late each day to ensure the job got done and they also did a great job cleaning up at the end of each day. Moreover, they devised a number of creative solutions to address issues with our bathroom and made sure we were satisfied with the end product (removing difficult ceiling texture, recessed medicine cabinet, extra shower niches, relocating heat registers, etc.). The job was done on time, on budget, and with tremendous attention to detail. We love our new bathrooms and would have no hesitation hiring Versatile Renovations to do future projects.
Versatile Renovations renovated my main bathroom and the basement bathroom, not only were they reliable, but the staff was very personable. The owner also made us aware of some items that were not to up to code, that we would have not known ourselves. The Versatile Renovations team, brought everything up to code, and did a fantastic job at renovating both bathrooms for us.
Thank you again Versatile Renovations.
Excellent Attention to Detail
Our house is 20 years old and after kids and dogs it was in need of a reno. We chose to completely redo 2 of the 4 bathrooms and upgrades to the other 2, along with complete replacement of all the flooring in the walkout basement.
What impressed us the most was how Herb and his men were always on time (even early) and did a fantastic job cleaning up at the end of each day. Their workmanship and attention to detail was excellent and even when things did not go exactly as planned (the “oh oh moment!”) Herb took charge and reassured us that he would deal with it quickly and properly; and true to his word he did. Another impressive point was not paying until we were completely happy with results. The final cost was very close to the original estimate and Herb passed on his contractors discount that he received from vendors without marking it up. I know we will have more renovations in the future and it will be done with Herb and Mark's crew. Thanks for the great job.

Punctual & Courteous
Versatile has finished their second project for us and we could not be more pleased. Prior to Herb, we have had four different contractors on four separate projects, Herb is by far the best and is the only one to do more than one project for us. Versatile is definitely worth the wait.
Versatile's most recent project for us was initially renovated 13 years ago by probably the worst contractor in Calgary; tile started cracking within a month of being completed..... then we had a dilemma because the original contractor would not fix it and no one else wanted to repair it for fear they would on the hook for further warranty. So we lived with this substandard bathroom for 13 years, a constant reminder of bad workmanship and basically dishonest people.
Once Versatile started the project it became apparent the previous work was even worse than we thought. Herb's crew worked long hours to cover the extra work involved because they were not about to delay for their next job.
Our advice, wait for Versatile. Waiting six or nine months is far better than living with a substandard renovation for years. If there is a problem, and I doubt there would be with Herb's crew, he will stand behind his work.
It is an intense week when Versatile arrives, but they work non stop until the job is done. They are punctual, courteous and they do their best to keep the site clean.
Many thanks to the Versatile Team.
Scott and Connie, Calgary
Herb took out my old shower and replaced it with a new one. My old shower was approximately 16 years old and was in terrible shape. When he removed the shower he also found 16 years of mould and a leaking pipe. He removed everything, replaced everything right down to the floor boards, as well as anything else that was in terrible shape. His work was outstanding. He showed me everything, advised me on what should be done. His dedication and discipline to making sure it was done right was something I truly admired. I am so grateful for everything he did for me. I cannot thank him enough!!!
Extremely Professional, Knowledgeable and Friendly
We had a plumbing issue with the laundry drain. I would not hesitate to refer Versatile Renovations Inc. Everything had been explained to us. They are extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
Leslie W., Calgary
Prompt and Eager to Please
Prompt and eager to please. We had the bathroom renovated, new water heater – top of the line, and toilet tank works replaced. It’s great having him living nearby.
Wes E., Calgary
Herb and his team have been our plumber for over 10 years. In that time, he has built a bathroom, redone all of our plumbing, fixed a broken toilet (quietly – with a new born in the room next door) and helped us with so many other day to day issues that I have lost count. His team is beyond reliable and, most importantly, completely trustworthy. They put themselves in their client’s shoes and think about what is important to them and their families. I can’t image ever going anywhere else and recommend them to all my family and friendly.
G. Selby, Airdrie
Respectful and Reasonable
Herb and his team completed major plumbing work on our trailer. They were very professional, honest, thorough, respectful and reasonable. I also appreciated that they were committed and on time.
Thank you Herb!!
The Best Experience in Every Aspect
Over the years we have had several renovations and this has been the best experience in every aspect. Herb and his crew were a pleasure to have in our home, they showed up when promised and were there every day, all day completing their part of the job in just four days. Their shop vac ran frequently as they attempted to minimize the dust; they removed numerous drop clothes at the end of the day replacing them with clean ones the next. Herb’s suppliers are also first rate, the granite is in and we are just waiting for custom shower doors and mirror. We are so pleased that we have booked our main bathroom for a makeover.
Scott M., Calgary
Nice, Honest and Wonderful to Work With
We had Herb and his crew do a complete renovation on our main bathroom his work was professional and excellent quality in everything they did. They started the day they said they were going to and even finished a day earlier. Every day they cleaned up and left the job clean for the next day. Herb is such a nice, honest wonderful person to work with and really cares about his customers. He answered all our questions and concerns and we felt super comfortable that he was looking after every little detail. His crew were all super nice guys and always eager to please. We are definitely going to get Herb back for future jobs and we would say that you would be lucky to have Herb and his crew doing any renovation for you. Our new bathroom is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier.

Talented and Organized
Herbie and his team did an excellent job for our main bathroom and master bathroom. He installed the tubs, tiles, and faucets. The tiles are all lined up professionally and with consideration of our needs in mind. I like the 10 years warranty that he offers for his Wedi system. He also did a lot of fight for us when one of the tub delivery went wrong and was damaged. He looked after us and has put extra effort than other contractor that I have been dealing with to find us one that is exactly the same even it means it is outside of city limit to do so. He makes sure he used good quality products for his work and for his customers. We are very happy with the bathroom results. He also helped us to reinstall a Kenetic water filtering system in our new house. He is so talented and organized in putting in it that it looks so professionally done compares to what it has been done in our hold house. He also suggested idea to clean our old tiles and make them look much more refresh. His team cleanup for us over and above and will do whatever extra he can offer to make you a happier customer. I have no hesitate to use his services again. Highly recommended.
Shang C., Calgary
Professional Job for a Reasonable Dollar
Herb and his crew have done jobs for us over the years, his attention to detail, use of quality products to ensure a quality job is impressive. I highly recommend Versatile Reno’s if you are looking for a professional job for a reasonable dollar.
Wayne K., Calgary
On Budget and On Time
Herb and his crew are very reliable, hardworking and honest guys who don’t settle for a low quality job. They like it to be done right the first time, and they fixed the incorrect workmanship left by the developer. They stayed on budget and finished on time. We think our basement looks great and everything was done right. We had no stress or worries throughout the project. They knew what they were doing and they cared about our happiness. Would always recommend Versatile Renovations to anyone.
June F., Calgary
Going above and Beyond
I have hired Herb to do a few different jobs around my home over the last few years and he always goes above and beyond. He is friendly, confident and skilled and expects the same from his crew. When he installed my furnace he did a million little extras including even drilling holes in my bird seed catcher for me. He also pressure washed the deck and house at very little cost and it looks amazing. It’s always a pleasure to have Herb out to do a job and I would highly recommend him!
Kerry O., Calgary
Committed to His Customers
This year we started our air conditioner and noticed water on the floor. We called Herb and he was at our door in an hour. After investigating he found a crack in the pan of the evaporator. He took out the whole unit and replaced it with a new one all under warranty.
We cannot speak more highly of Herb. Not only of his workmanship but of his commitment to his customers.
Thanks again Herb,
A Pleasure to Have in Our Home
We are a long-time customer of Versatile reno it is a pleasure to have the guys come into our home to inspect the furnace hot water heater and AC. It's great knowing you are good for another year.
Satisfied Client, Calgary
Professional and Honest
Herbie Crawford (Herb) is very professional and honest person. We did renovations on our Ensuite and Master Bathroom as well as Powder room and are extremely satisfied with his work. He is one of the few contractors I have come across in my life who is honest enough to pass his contractor discount from the suppliers. I am happy that we hired Versatile Renovations for this job and would recommend highly to anyone who wants a good quality renovation in affordable pricing.
A Terrific Job
Versatile Renovations did a terrific job renovating our dated bathroom. The work was done in a professional manner and Herb made sure to clean the site and surrounding area every day. Herb was able to accommodate all of the aspects of the bathroom that we wanted and have suggestions where we were unsure about how certain things would work/turn out. I would suggest Versatile to anyone who asks and have them as my number one call for the next reno.
G. Francis, Calgary
A Wonderful Work Ethic
Versatile Renovations did a great job of demolishing my dated rooms and creating a new, custom kitchen, family room and bathroom. Their work is professional and always conscious to detail. They have a wonderful work ethic and complete renovations in a timely manner. I really appreciated their suggestions and felt it was a team effort. I would definitely recommend Versatile Renovations and would not hesitate to contract them again.
Top Quality Work
Bill and I want to thank Herb, Joey and Cody for their conscientious work in our main bathroom renovation. The project was completed on time, on budget and in a very professional manner. They kept a very clean worksite that was very much appreciated. Their work is top quality.
Herb is very honest and will make suggestions (in our project Pot Lights) that will improve the end result. Herb is patient with any changes that you might want to make along the way and has a fun sense of humour. We will definitely call Herb for work in the future. Work. Projects.
Satisfied Customer, Calgary
Understanding the Value of Customer Service
Friends recommended Herb based on their experience with his work. We’re so glad they did. Aside from being an exceptionally talented tile guy/plumber, Herb understands the nature and value of customer service. He respected our time and our home with equal measure, showing up when promised, focusing on the job at hand, and cleaning up after himself every step of the way. He did a terrific job and has earned our highest recommendation. Just a super guy. We really couldn’t be happier.
Restored Our Faith in Contractors
Very impressed with Herb. He is honest and explains everything that needs to be done and why. The entire process was painless. The work was done on time and within budget. Would not hesitate to recommend Versatile Renovations as we will be using Herb again for any other projects we are planning.
Thanks Herb you restored our faith in contractors.
Debra and John, Calgary
I would highly recommend Herb and his crew. If you want someone that does impeccable work, shows up on time and cleans up each night before they leave. Look no further. We have a 1940 home. Herb replaced the complete plumbing system, heating system and did a basement bathroom rough in. He came in on budget and on schedule.
We were completely satisfied. I will certainly call Herb for any further work I may need.
They were in and out super quick. Their work was great and there with every question and comment I had. I would recommend to anyone. My bathroom looks as good as a bathroom on tv or a design mag.
Ecstatic with the Workmanship
I would like to thank Herb and his crew for the renovation work carried out in our main bathroom in our home. My husband and I are both ecstatic with the workmanship and detail put in and have received lots of positive comments from friends and family. I feel like I’m in a spa like setting at a 5 star hotel every time I’m in the bathroom. We will definitely recommend your company to family and friends.
Kim O., Calgary
Impressed with Work Ethic, Honesty, Integrity and Attention to Detail
We just had bathroom renos completed by Herb and his crew from Versatile Renovations. They arrived when they said they would, worked extremely hard and tidied up each day before leaving. From start to finish they were amazing! All the work was done to a very high standard - the tile work in the main bath is outstanding! We were kept informed as to what was happening every step of the way. We were very impressed with their work ethic, honesty, integrity, attention to detail and pride taken in the work. Herb is definitely a man of his word and master of his craft! We will not hesitate to call on Versatile for any further projects and we highly recommend this company to anyone.
Gail W., Calgary
Exceptional Workmanship and Knowledge
We had Herb & his crew in to do 3 different projects for us. He is very punctual as he started and finished the jobs when he said he would. Every day they cleaned up before they left and Herb always kept us informed on what was going on and what to expect. Herb is very professional and customer oriented with an eye for detail and exceptional workmanship and knowledge in everything he does. If you are looking for someone with integrity who will stay true to his word, is honest and has a very strong work ethic Herb is your man. We are so happy with everything Herb has done in our home that we will definitely be hiring him & his great crew for our future projects. Herb is a genuine gentleman and a breath of fresh air. WE highly recommend him to you, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Herb for a job very well done, we love it!
Mike and Karen, Calgary
A Man of His Word
Herb and his team are truly exceptional. It is nearly impossible to find a leader and a company operating with such integrity, honesty, knowledge and attention to detail. Herb came highly recommended from a friend and my wife + I was incredibly impressed by Versatile’s workmanship, punctuality (being there when you sy you’re going to) and small details and extra touches to make the project look and function exceptionally. Herb is a true gentleman and man of his word. He doesn’t cut corners and embodies the textbook definitions of honesty and sincerity. Not only would I recommend Versatile again but I wouldn’t go ANYWHERE else for my next renovation, plumbing, flooring, kitchen project. Herb and his team are liquid gold and in our humble opinion, the best of the best in Calgary. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Doing kitchen renovations and found leaky sink pipe. Called on the weekend and had no problem fitting me in. Checked everything out and explained what he was going to do and why. Found some other issues that were pretty bad and fixed those as well. Very impressed with the owners down to earth and friendliness character. Really knew what he was doing. I’m usually very weary of people wanting to do more than what they’ve come for, but I was so impressed I told him to go ahead and fix all the issues. I expected a huge bill, but it was very reasonable. Felt like a friend of a friend came over to help, not someone who was out to take my money.
He also does home renovations and I would not hesitate to use his company again. I would at least know the work would be high quality and trust him totally. Would highly recommend this company to all my friends, which I have done. Nice to know that there are people out there who are not only out to make a buck, but actually care about the work they do and don’t charge an arm and a leg for their service.
Immaculate and Hard Working with Impeccable Workmanship
Herb and his crew were immaculate and hard working with impeccable workmanship. My bathroom is absolutely stunning and I am so happy with the end result. I was quite impressed at how meticulous his crew was at cleaning up at the end of each day and that they took the time to put drop sheets down everywhere.
Old Fashioned Work Ethic
Finally, a renovation company with old fashioned work ethic and pride in the best possible workmanship. Herb and his crew are professional, friendly and meticulous. There may be others as good, but none better.
Maryanne P., Calgary
We recently had our upstairs bathroom renovated and front entrance tiled. The bathroom was a complete redo including shower/bath to walk-in shower conversion. The whole process was great from start to finish and the bathroom looks absolutely amazing. Extremely professional.
Herbie, Mark and Braden were very professional and extremely meticulous. They were very open to suggestions and they had some great ideas we hadn't even considered. They were very helpful and pleasant throughout the process and kept our home really clean. Mark even entertained our dog (or maybe put up with him).
All said it was a very satisfying experience and I would definitely use their services again and I would highly recommend Versatile Renovations for any projects you may be considering.
My Go To Contractor
Versatile Renovations has been my go to contractor for many years and various projects. Herb, who is the owner, and his team recently renovated a basement bathroom starting with busting concrete and installing all new plumbing lines through to tiling and the finishing touches of hanging towel bars!
Herb is a perfectionist and expects the same of his trades people. He always uses high quality material so it is done correctly the first time. He thinks ahead to ensure renovations of other areas will have access. Herb has always honoured his quotes and project time management is excellent.
I will continue to hire Versatile Renovations and recommend them to others.
We Couldn’t Be Happier with the Result
This review will sound like a broken record…which is clearly a good thing!!
We’ve been planning to renovate our master bath since we first walked through our house over 8 years ago. When you’ve had a ‘vision’ in your mind that you’ve been tweaking for that long, it’s important to find the right company to bring it to life. But not just bring it to life, you want to sleep at night not worrying about the craftsmanship, it can’t just be pretty, it needs to endure the daily grind. We couldn’t be happier with the result!
We were told it would be a few months before we would be on the schedule, but that once we were, they would be on-site every business day working on it, and they were…worth the wait! We were told at the quoting phase it would likely take 8-10 working days to complete, it was 8. We were provided a quote, and the final invoice was the same to the penny (or nickel now that the penny is no longer).
Renos are messy and disruptive, you can’t avoid it; having a company in your house that respects your property, time, etc. is paramount, and unfortunately in most cases you learn that the hard way in the midst of it (speaking from multiple past experiences…if only we had known of Versatile back then).
Every single interaction we had with anyone at Versatile (from email to on-site) was extremely respectful, and they obviously take a lot pride in their work and the final product.
We could go on-and-on; we would recommend the Versatile team with zero hesitation. Thanks again!!
Rob & McCol, Chestermere
l have used Versatile renovations for the last few years on different projects. l can honestly say Herb has never let me down. He’s on time, on budget, and does it right the first time. My latest project was to tile a shower and install a steam generator. Once again Herb met and exceeded my expectations
I would not hesitate to recommend Herb and his team
