I contracted Ralph out to do the drywalling in my basement after hearing how happy my wife’s cousin was with their work. I wasn’t disappointed! Ralph and his team did great work and were extremely quick and courteous.
They even went beyond what was promised in the discussions/quote.
Saved me months of work as well as my sanity.

Some of the… jankier corners I had to frame to accommodate support pole placements posed no problem for the team. I was also particularly impressed with the knockdown ceiling finish, especially after seeing some random examples on the internet!              Highly recommended.

I hired Calgary Interior Systems to do the drywall for my lower level development project in my home.  I was 100% satisfied with the job!  The owner, Ralph Birchard, was excellent to work with.  He was very professional, highly knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.  He really knows his industry and that was comforting.  His boarding and taping crews were diligent, respectful and paid attention to details. 

 

I have heard horror stories of “fly by nighters” doing a variety of construction projects but this was nothing like that.  Ralph operates a professional business that will continue to have longevity in Calgary.  If you need drywall for your home I would recommend CIS without hesitation.

Hi Ralph,

 

I hope that you are having a great summer. Ron and myself wanted to take a moment to say how pleased we were with the drywall and stipple job that your company has done for us.  We got back from our holidays to discover that we had a leak from the second floor down to the first floor ceiling.  We felt devastated to see our ceiling in this mess, it wasn't a big mess but still a mess! 

 

I happened to see the sign for Calgary Interior Systems on a neighbour's lawn and emailed that evening and was pleasantly surprised to see that we had a response within 5 minutes of sending an email on a Saturday evening at 11:00 p.m. From the moment that you showed up on the Monday morning to look at the situation and give us a quote to repair the drywall and stipple to having your staff start the work the next morning, we found ourselves so pleased with the workmanship and the professionalism that we received.

 

We want to say "Thank You" and we would definitely recommend your company!

Hi Ralph,

 I’m finally getting around to writing you a well deserved reference.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciated your integrity and professionalism – not to mention excellent work.  You helped to make this process so much easier and I’m really grateful.  Please feel free to have any potential customer call me for a reference, it would be my pleasure to reassure people they are dealing with the best.

 “I hired Calgary Interior Systems to drywall my basement development in July 2015.  From the start Ralph was a pleasure to work with.  He was fantastic at setting a tight schedule, arrived on time every day and completed the job quickly, but more importantly impeccably.  His staff were reliable, skilled and fantastic to work with.  I really cannot recommend Ralph, his staff and Calgary Interior Systems highly enough.  If you want honest, excellent service with a superb result – then hire them and have no worries.  Please feel free to contact me if you want more information.”

Dear Ralph,

You just completed installing and finishing the drywall in my new home and I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with the job.
I built my first house in 1980 and I have been around construction for many years.  The quality of the installation and finish are as good as I have ever seen.  In addition to the high quality of the finished product, every step of the process was well executed.  You were friendly, courteous, and professional to deal with and so were the men who came to the house to do the work.  There was a good schedule for getting the work done and you and your men always did exactly what you said you would do.  The work site was kept clean and well organized.   In summary, I would be very pleased to recommend you to any potential customer and I would be happy to talk to them personally. 
Sincerely,

Just a note to thank you for a job well done! Firstly, your boarding team arrived on time, is extremely courteous, told us their planned action and schedule to complete their portion of the job. They worked diligently to maintain a clean work area through out the day. Secondly, the quality of work from the taper is stunning, it's like art, I cannot believe the short amount of time it took them to perform this amazing work. The ceiling texturing was done in no time with super tidy results. Lastly, your material estimation was bang on, you invoice was less than quoted, the job site was cleaned up as promised and all the work was completed in less time than you estimated.

Thanks again,

Ralph as communicative, friendly and accommodating of our schedule and our hope to get things done quickly and on time.

To whom it may concern,

In the period of little over a week, Ralph Birchard of Calgary Interior Systems and his crew of expert tradespeople installed and finished the drywall (walls and ceilings, paint ready) in my new renovation development.
I was beyond happy with the results and highly impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail that was exhibited by all.
Ralph thoroughly explained his working process, and all expectations on the project were met or exceeded.
Ralph and his team were very fast, efficient and conscientious, the quality of the finished work cold not be surpassed.

The pricing of the job was very competitive and I feel I received tremendous value for my dollar.

I would not hesitate to recommend Calgary Interior Systems to anyone.

To Ralph and his crew, thanks again VERY MUCH!!!

Hi Ralph

Just wanted to let you how happy I am with your work on my flood repairs.
I understand the difficulties with taping to existing damaged walls, where portions of drywall have been removed. After painting and going over your work with a 500 watt halogen, I was amazed at what a good job you did. All your joints were seamless and no touch ups!
As a retired  painter I am probably a bit more picky than most, but I must say you are by far one of the best drywall contractors I have painted behind. A true professional.

Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Kind Regards

Ralph has done dry walling on three ceilings of my Lakeview home.  I have yet to see a man so professional in his workmanship and his communication skill.  Before he started to work on the ceiling he explained to me exactly what I should expect on a given day so that there should be no surprises.  I was totally prepared mentally and psychologically to undergo some inconveniences but to my surprise Ralph made it very easy and smooth.  The workmanship was excellent and his demeanour and attitude is A+ not to mention his ever smiling face that right away puts the client at ease.  One most outstanding quality that stands out for me was his listening skills. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you for the job well done.

Hi Ralph!

 I just wanted to write a quick thank you note! 

 We truly appreciated your team coming in to repair all the deficiencies our last drywaller left us with during our development. You guys were punctual, professional and pleasant. Your quote was sent immediately, your team here within 2 days, and everything was finished as scheduled. GREAT service, I most definitely will be recommending you to others. 

 Thank you again!

We hired Ralph and Calgary Interior Systems for the drywall, mudding/taping and ceiling finish. We found Ralph to be very friendly and very professional. His quote was very competitive and his crews turned up like clockwork to ensure the job was completed within the timeframe agreed. Ralph was a pleasure to deal with and we've already referred him to friends and work colleagues who are developing their basements. Thank you Ralph.

Thank you Ralph for the great work on our reno.  Taping and mudding is the most painful part of any reno, but your guys came in and made it look easy.  It would have taken me weeks to even come close to finishing the drywall, but your guys had it done in about a week…and looking far better than I could have done.  I’ll definitely be checking in with you for our next project…

Thanks again for the great work...

Calgary Interior Systems did the drywall installation and finishing for our development in November 2012.  We were very pleased with the job.  All of the tradesmen who came to our house were professional and very pleasant to deal with.  We appreciated that they left the basement clean and tidy at the end of each day.  The work was completed in good time and we have been happy with the quality of the installation.

I am happy with the services and finished product that you and the crews did.  The boarding was done quickly and with detail and the mudders an tapers performed great work.  The fact that they were able to keep the place clean was a much appreciated added bonus.  Thanks

Every single one of your tradespeople that I have had the pleasure of dealing with, have had excellent attitudes and deal with their jobs with such professionalism that makes working with you not work at all.
That's why I will always send you my business.
 
  Looking forward to working with you and your crews again in the future.

I recently used Calgary Interior Systems for assistance in SW Calgary. They were recommended to me by a BBB contractor and I had seen their advertisements prior. From initial contact, to estimate and work completion, Ralph and his team were responsive, organized, met their commitments exactly and always acted professionally. Knowledge of the work they were doing was very apparent, which is also evident in the final product which I am extremely satisfied with. CIS’ pricing was competitive and very transparent. I would use CIS again and have no issue recommending them or taking a reference call regarding my testimonial.

Ralph,

Thank you for all your hard work on our basement development.  It wasn't the biggest project but there was lots of detail and we had a very short timeline.  The people doing the work were professional, courteous and quiet.  All of these qualities were important as Lucy was 36 weeks pregnant when they were working.  She was as happy as me with the work and the workers.

I feel that you went above and beyond to not only get our project done on a short timeline but also to take care of the fine details.  I'm very happy I selected you to do the work and would be happy to recommend you to anyone.

Thanks again for a job well done!
 
"Ralph and his team did a wonderful job. It was an extremely pleasant experience from the start of communication to the completion of the project! They went out of their way to help in any way possibly and went beyond our expectations. I was happy to see how well and efficiently they worked. The job was done perfectly and in less time then originally quoted! I have and will continue to recommend Ralph!
 
Thanks again

We were very pleased with Calgary Interior Systems.  I had hired another contractor but they failed to return phone calls and start the job in a timely manner, and I was on a very tight schedule.  So we hired Calgary Interior Systems with hopes to get it done quickly and well.

Material was dropped off two days after I called and the workers were  very punctual and dependable throughout the whole job ( which only took a week and a couple days, exceeding our expectations).

I was also impressed that I could always get ahold of Ralph on the phone,  and he stopped by throughout the whole process.   We are very happy with the work they did.

We found Ralph by chance based on a paper mailout ad he did and he was the best we interviewed by far.
He kept us posted throughout the job and started almost immediately after we hired him.
We appreciated his work.

"When we first called Ralph to arrange for an initial consultation, we were struck by his honesty and appreciation for the call.  Not only was he able to meet us on short notice, he was able to leave our first meeting with a firm price for the job and with a sense that there was absolutely no pressure to commit.  Ultimately it was Ralph's honesty and professionalism that led to us hiring Calgary Interior Systems.  Throughout construction, Ralph was sure to keep us informed at every step along the way and was quick to act on our comments/concerns.  The crews employed at Calgary Interior Systems are professional and it is obvious that they care about their work.  Calgary Interior Systems met our schedule and budget expectations and if were are to complete any drywall work in the future, Calgary Interior Systems will be our first choice."

We are so glad that Calgary interior Systems did the drywall , we couldn’t have had a better crew to do the boarding, mudding & finishing.  This shows what expertise and customer service really is.  Please refer us to anyone or let them come and see what a great job has been done.  We are more than pleased.

 Thanks Ralph and Team

"When we planned our renovation, we asked our friends for recommendations.  We had three people or companies recommended to us and we decided that we would also get a fourth quote as well.  That extra quote came from Ralph with Calgary Interior Systems.  When Ralph came to do the quote we were pleased with his level of professionalism, the information he gave was thorough and he gave us realistic expectations.  He told us his quote wouldn't be the cheapest but they would do the best job.  Ultimately because of price, timing and gut feeling we went with Calgary Interior Services and were very happy with the service we received.  Our basement project was done on time and looks great.  Everyone we encountered with Calgary Interior Systems was punctual, respectful, friendly and professional.  The clean-up was done well and we were kept up to date on the whole process.  We would happily recommend Calgary Interior Systems to anyone needing work done."

Mudding and taping is an art. If you are not experienced with it, doing it yourself will take longer, make a bigger mess and in most cases, only end up looking reasonable. Calgary Interior Systems were very prompt and professional and in the end, we got exactly what we requested in a very short time frame and all at a very reasonable price. We have already been recommending them to friends and colleagues and hope to work with them again in the future.

As a general contractor the sub-trades I use reflect directly on the overall quality of the project we are completing for our customers. For years I had been searching for a professional company whose quality workmanship demonstrated their attention to detail and pride in their profession. Our business relationship with Calgary Interior Systems over the past several years has been very positive. Our customers like the finished quality of their home and customer callbacks for service have been non-existent. I can highly recommend Ralph Birchard and his company Calgary Interior Systems Inc..

During our home reno
project we bided out to multiple contractors for our finishing.  Our choice of Calgary Interior Systems was based on price and timing of work to be completed.  The job was carried out very efficiently and professionally and we were extremely pleased with the final result.  By doing it ‘professionally right’ the first time also added value to the sale of our home sometime later.
