“What is a contractor's bond?”
“Bonding protects the consumer if the contractor fails to complete a job, doesn’t pay for permits, or fails to meet other financial obligations, such as paying for supplies or subcontractors or covering damage that workers cause to your property.
Experts our team interviewed say that to be bonded, companies typically pay a premium to a surety company. You can ask a contractor for a bond number and certification, through which you can confirm that he or she is appropriately bonded. In addition, you can contact the surety company directly if work isn’t completed or you believe it’s subpar.
Requirements regarding bonding vary depending on the state and municipality where you live, so it's important to do your research before you hire a contractor.”

Not only are we there to help people that are in need of new or repairing old eavestrough, downs, soffit, and fascia. We are there to help those who can't ask for the help. Rescued two baby pigeons on a job site. As advised we took them to Calgary North Veterinary Hospital who are looking after them until the Rehabilitation Centre is open in the morning to come and pick them up.
Our clients had hired us to do some work and advised us they had a pigeon problem and they needed our help. They had strict orders when hiring us that we were not to kill any of the birds, just to get rid of them out of their attic. We got rid of the birds; however realized there were two babies still, that were too young to fly away. Tim being the caring individual he is brought the two pigeon babies home, and his wife and him found out where to take them to save them. We kept our promise!
We take what our clients ask seriously and believe that great customer service is what makes a successful business. Contact us today for a free estimate.

As of July 1, 2016 the Alberta Seniors Home Adoption and Repair Act (SHARP), became effective.
This program allows Albertans over 65 years of age to take up $40,000 in a low-interest home equity loan from the Government of Alberta.
SHARP can be a valuable option to help you afford important repairs to help protect your home. Fixing the leaks today will save big dollars down the road, so it is easy to see how this low cost finical option can actually pay off big in the future. We will work with you if you want to go this route. Soft Metal Experts will work hard to fulfill our duty as contractors in respect to the act.
