We had a bit of a complicated project and Pinnacle Group did a good job. It came within budget and when there were challenges, Pinnacle Group responded well to them. We are really happy with it, we have a great design and great workmanship and we loved the people who were on site. The quality of work is what we value the most. We are the ones living with the product and we are pleased with their work. It is a good quality job.
This is the second reno we have done with Pinnacle Group. We did an exterior project 4 or 5 years ago. The fact that the schedule and budget is already part of Pinnacle Group’s process was important to us. Some companies just wing it and see what happens, but the risk is you don’t know the total cost. We had confidence based on our first experience with Pinnacle Group. We value Pinnacle’s project management and communication. Brennan and Grant were great. When issues came up, they were talked about and dealt with. We could talk to them anytime and we communicated a lot by email. They were on top of things and responsive. They explained the options, the pros and cons so we had the information we needed to make a good decision.
A renovation can be a stressful process, but when you know that there is a team looking out for you, that diminishes the worry. We valued a combination of a number of things: Pinnacle Group’s care and professionalism, their attention to detail, the pride they take in their work and the family friendly environment. All of these things translate into a stress free experience. What was so valuable for us was that their Site Supervisor, Brennan, was looking out for us. We knew we were in good hands. There was never any panic. We never felt stressed or felt we were in poor hands. We are very happy with our choice to use Pinnacle Group. It was a stellar experience because of the care, the professionalism and the team approach.
I am completely confident that Pinnacle Group would get the work done and get it done well. I would recommend Pinnacle for that reason. I would strongly encourage people to deal with the Owner, Paul, and then also list my caveats. Paul and Pinnacle Group are committed to getting the job done right. On one issue there was a bit of pushback, but when Paul got involved it was just done. He is honest, trustworthy and super responsive. I also know that Pinnacle is a viable company and will not go out of business. This is a pet peeve of mine, we were dealing with subcontractors who have full time jobs elsewhere. So we were continually accommodating their schedule as opposed to their staff accommodating our schedule. Overall, we are happy with the project, and we are very happy with the way it turned out.
At the end of the day, everything that they said they would do and that we asked for, was done. There was no arguing, whining or complaining. They just did it. A corner cabinet with glass wasn’t quite right. Brennan took one look at it and agreed and he got it done right. There were no complaints, he just did it. They were not afraid to make changes and get things done. My wife really likes the result, as well. These are also the reasons we would recommend Pinnacle Group.
Pinnacle Group listened to what we were looking for. They informed us of the options available and what could be done, but they didn’t try to upsell us. The Owner, Paul, was fabulous to deal with. Both Paul and his wife came to our house with a gift basket at one point. They demonstrated that they actually cared about us and the project. Pinnacle uses quality materials and quality trades that end up in a very positive result and experience. We value their flexibility, professionalism and friendliness.
We had a bit of an issue with a leaky tap in the steam shower. Just wanted to say that I was impressed with how quickly Stephanie got it all resolved. I had wondered what “follow up” service might be like, but apparently I got my answer!
What I valued the most was that Grant gave me a schedule for the project. The trades followed the schedule and I could tell when people would and would not be here. I didn’t feel that I had to call them, I just stepped out of the way and let them do their job. That really gave me ‘peace of mind’. I didn’t have to badger them or worry about whether work would get done, they just did it. My experience with Pinnacle Group was very solid, they do good work, and they do it on time.
The process that Pinnacle Group uses is quite different than their competition – it gave us a lot more engagement. Velvet and Brennan were excellent to work with. Their price guarantee was a factor. What we saw when our neighbors did the renovation with Pinnacle, as well as the warranty work definitely influenced us in choosing Pinnacle Group. The cabinetry work is absolutely superb. Overall with everybody, there was an openness and willingness to resolve issues.
A couple of years ago, the Pinnacle Group was doing a Reno Open House in our neighborhood of Riverbend, then later we saw one in Bank View. The decision for us was that we could see the work they had done and would do. Seeing it was the selling point for us. We were impressed with their work. What I valued the most was feeling comfortable about having them in my home. A renovation is a huge intrusion and we have a lot of stuff, but I felt comfortable having Pinnacle and their staff/trades in our home. I felt secure.
I was looking for renovators who would guarantee a ‘move in’ date, a solid budget and had a penalty if they didn’t finish on time. I decided to go forward with Pinnacle as they had a warranty and I could see some of their projects in progress. I would recommend Pinnacle Group to anyone. They finished on time, they had a budget guarantee, and they will come back and fix things if there are issues in the future.
I would tell people to definitely consider Pinnacle Group and get a quote as they do great work and you have a higher degree of certainty as to what you will get. If there was anyone on the Pinnacle Team who was awesome, it was Brennan. He was responsive, courteous, a pleasure to deal with, knowledgeable about renovations and project management, he is patient and explained things really well. My rational for the 4 is that we are very happy with the results but initially, Pinnacle’s process was not clearly explained to us.
We were thinking about moving but decided to renovate based on early interaction with Pinnacle Group. We are happy we did and are happy with the result. I think that they know what they are doing. They try their best to stick to a budget and timeline. Pinnacle is also flexible and accommodating, and we appreciated that.
We would recommend Pinnacle Group because of their quality of work and the trades they brought to our site. They are polite, careful, tidy and lovely people to work with. They were also timely in starting and completing the work. I value our finished product. We now have a beautiful home and it is exactly what we wanted.
The end product of our project is just absolutely fantastic. We went to Pinnacle because we had confidence that it would all be done well. That confidence and understanding that things will be taken care of was foundational to our decision. We knew that if any issues came up, they would be taken care of.
The Pinnacle Group’s Site Supervisor, Brennan provided a lot of value during our project. The overall design was good, and my wife was quite involved in that.
The fact that they were on budget and on time, is really huge for me. The Pinnacle Group does what they say they are going to do and the quality of their work is really fantastic. We have another phase to do, but that is next year.
I will tell people that we had issues that were not Pinnacle’s fault, but they have been absolutely reliable in getting them fixed. Not everyone has a Contractor that makes it right. For me that is a big deal. Our project is now done, and the Pinnacle Group has met our expectations.
I would recommend the Pinnacle Group based on their people, their work ethic and their value to make sure that their clients are happy. If there was something that wasn’t right along the way, Pinnacle addressed it and made it right. It was clearly important to them.
I feel that the Pinnacle Group inspire confidence. They present themselves as a cohesive and friendly team. They are friendly and enjoyable to work with. They have a high standard for their quality of work and they do not cut corners.
We would recommend the Pinnacle Group for several reasons: The way the project began – the insight, the unique ideas from the early design meetings were all things we would not have thought of or considered. They helped us create dreams and a vision – that was very helpful. The final result is just stellar. Our renovated home is beautiful and the bookends are so solid. By that I mean, our project started well and finished well – it was on time and on budget. We have nothing negative to say.
We have lived with an undeveloped living space for 20 years but now we have a basement that is functional and open to share with friends and family. It is beautiful as well, so we want to spend time there. The Pinnacle Group opened that space for us and we are really pleased. Paul has shared his interest and passion for making accessibility open to people. They already have a lot of knowledge in that area and so I am sure their knowledge will just continue to increase.
Paul was always enthusiastic and professional when we talked to him. It was clear that he wanted our experience as clients to be a good one. I also cannot say enough good things about Brennan. The Pinnacle Group’s staff are efficient and friendly. We now have a beautiful home.
I liked working with the Pinnacle Group’s staff. They are all excellent people. It was a very good experience – we had lots of good laughs, it was fun. Things came up along the way but it all got worked out. They are a great company to work with. They also worked in a timely fashion.
Yes, I am satisfied with PN they did a good job for us.
They really stood behind the philosophy and commitment to their SCC guarantee. The Pinnacle Group were also very concerned about the standard of quality of the product. I never had the feeling they were selling something that I didn’t need. For example, they refinished our wood flooring and fireplace instead of replacing them. They really seemed to care about finishing a high quality project on time and on budget.
Everyone was professional and the Pinnacle Group finished the project on time. The design aspect at the beginning was good. I needed a fully accessible wheelchair bathroom, so Paul had to take more time to understand all our needs. He was good at that and wanted to make sure my needs were met. It was new for them and also new for me, as I hadn’t designed a space like that before. We worked together and the result turned out.
I like the fact that Brennan operates as a GC and takes charge of the project and all the trades. It eliminates the stress on me and that is important. This might seem silly but we have two dogs. One of our dogs cannot be rubbed with a person’s legs or feet. When it occurs, the dog gets all stressed out. Brennan did a good job of informing everyone of it. As a result, our dogs were not stressed out. It was great that I could give control over to Brennan so I didn’t have to deal with the stress. That was a big thing for me.
Their service was outstanding and they have a strong sense of professionalism. They are approachable and can put up with me. They can take a joke and give it back, so it is good. The Pinnacle Group is open and honest. We got that vibe from Paul right away and we knew we could trust him.
There were two issues during the Pinnacle Group renovation and in both cases, they said they would resolve it. They said don’t worry, we will fix it and they did. We are really happy with the end result. We knew we could trust them and that they had a better sense for visual than we did. I feel confident recommending Pinnacle as we know that they will deliver a good result.
The final product is what I value the most, our project ended up the way we wanted it. I am an Accountant and so the end result is important. All aspects of Velvet’s interaction were helpful for us. She met with us and listened to my ramblings and brought the whole thing together.
I have a friend who started a renovation and it was only supposed to take 4 months. After 14 months, she is still waiting for it to be finished but has no idea as to when it will be done. We didn’t have any concerns like that with the Pinnacle Group. They finished on time.
I enjoyed the professionalism and expertise that Paul brought to our project. The Pinnacle Group’s team and almost every subcontractor was excellent. Paul stands behind what he says and the transparency in what they are doing is great.
I think it is the workmanship, the finished product is very nice. You hear about projects with major issues and we never experienced any major issues.
They are very true to their word. Paul came in with a budget that we didn’t initially like but he followed through and delivered on that budget. They knew how much it would cost. They gave us a core set of options (our needs) and also gave us a good number of other options so we could also choose our wants. And we did choose a lot of them. Our house looks great!
Yes, I would definitely recommend the Pinnacle Group but I would put in some caveats. We had some trouble getting the designs updated. In the end, we are happy that we choose the Pinnacle Group and we are very happy with the end result. Brennan was engaged right from the start and he knew what was going on.
We are happy with the result but the journey was a disappointment.
The overall look of our house is amazing and the resulting pride we have in it, is great. We also appreciated the way that Paul broke down the costs and quote for the renovation. It was detailed and that helped. We had issues to resolve at the end of the project that was just too long.
What I value the most is Pinnacle’s expertise at what they do. Pinnacle Group is really skilled at putting a good design together. The beginning of our project was really good – the planning conversations and the vision was top quality. That led to project satisfaction and so it brings my score up. The implementation wasn’t so good and I am not happy about that but the end result is great.
We had a few moments on this project but they did a fantastic job. Pinnacle’s trades were excellent. Everyone but the management were awesome. Just as the project was finishing, my neighbor asked if I would recommend them and I told her that I definitely would. I would recommend Pinnacle, because their staff and trades are excellent. The end result turned out really good and we have a lovely bathroom.
It was a really good experience. Paul attracted us with his warmth and his genuine personality. It was clear that he had integrity and we could tell he knew how to run a business. I think it was those qualities that attracted us to them. For me, they are significant values and are important. Working with the Pinnacle Group was an extremely positive experience.
I would recommend Pinnacle because they are trustworthy. They do their work ‘on schedule’ and to the best of their ability.
I value the relationship we had with every one of the Pinnacle staff. Everyone was very personable and it was clear to tell they were on our side. I don’t think I got ‘blow back’ on any issue or complaint that we had.
They have a good timeline. They provide a reasonable amount of communication at the front half of the project. I have limited experience with trades but the Pinnacle Group did it in the time and cost they committed to. That is a good thing.
I have two sets of friends who used the Pinnacle and they were both satisfied with the project and the people involved. I am in the same ball park. My personality and experiences give me too much information and knowledge. I would have no problem recommending them.
I valued the feeling of caring and the sense of family that comes with the Pinnacle Group. Their trades and staff come to see the project at the Turnover date. Paul’s wife even came to site and it just makes it feel like one big family. I valued that sense the most.
We are satisfied with the end result but it was a frustrating path here. There were a lot of frustrations along the way and when we think about it, it really related to one of their staff members.
I just want to say in closing that that our experience had some bumps but I don’t think it is a typical Pinnacle performance. I think the Pinnacle Group is a fantastic company and experienced a bump in the road. If they can make some process changes then it will improve their process. I don’t think our experience represents their typical renovation project. Thanks for reaching out and being patient in connecting for this interview.
They were so great to deal with. The Pinnacle Group may not be the cheapest company but I would rather pay a bit more to get the kind of service that they provide. They were timely and everyone in their organization was pleasant. Even when there was an issue, it was pleasant and Pinnacle would take care of things. They listened to our concerns.
I had great confidence in Pinnacle. They have high standards and I felt that they understood and considered our individual circumstance. This may sound odd but it felt that Pinnacle was there to take good care of us. What I mean is that they were very considerate of our situation and some of our requirements. That made our whole project work out well.
This type of feedback process is invaluable for everybody. Pinnacle can only get better with it.
The Pinnacle Group has met the start and completion dates every time. Their craftsmanship is so good; their trades and suppliers are so good and when issues arise they address them and take care of them. That is great. For me, it is easy to refer the Pinnacle Group because I trust them and know that any issues will be taken care of.
