05Clients Say


Major renovation that included a new basement, new garage, new laundry & storage room, new boot room and renovations in every room of the house. Also, the front and back exteriors of the home were remodeled. The Litwiller professionals were invaluable by ensuring high quality performance by tradesman while providing insightful recommendations during the renovation process. We chose Litwiller to initiate a long term relationship with a high quality renovation company. Renovations always entail follow up visits immediately after completion date and months later. Litwiller has met each request on a timely and professional basis including a pocket door repair four years after our renovation was completed. The home we chose is expected to be our residence for decades, so choosing Litwiller was extremely important to us and we are very satisfied with our decision.


We are still in the renovation process about 80% done and the work along with the concerns from me have been dealt with promptly and professionally. The business and subcontractors have been very respectful to me and my home. Would use them again.


I decided to renovate my 1950’s bungalow in Renfrew. To choose a renovator I visited Calgary’s home renovation open houses. I chose David Litwiller because of style of his renovations. After conferring with David, a major renovation was started by adding a sunroom, with a partial basement, new kitchen and composite deck off this addition. David had great advice and ideas, handled all the City requirements, and trades. The place looked fabulous. After a few years I had him come back and add a carport. I was so happy with my experience I decided to hire David to build my new house in Tuxedo.


We are in the preliminary stages of renovating a 1968 2-story home in Varsity. We’ve met with a few contractors regarding various aspects of our project, but have found Litwiller Renovations to be our top choice. David Litwiller met with us personally, and helped us to break down the costs, and stages of our proposed renovation. He welcomed our numerous questions, and had a real eye for detail on our walk-through (he even ensured that all our children’s existing windows were functioning properly in case of emergency). It’s been a really client-friendly experience so far. David is professional and approachable, and has given us a realistic idea about what our job will entail.


Litwiller Renovations & Custom Homes were the general contractor for the complete renovation done on our home in 2003-2004, and the kitchen upgrade completed in January 2013. In both cases, the renos were completed with the utmost professionalism , courtesy and punctuality and every member of the team exemplified high levels of knowledge and experience as well as the dedication to do each task along the way, correctly and thoroughly, THE FIRST TIME. Budgeting was accurate, staff scheduling was efficient and support staff were always available…and I now have a modern, upgraded, bright and airy kitchen that I will be proud to share with my family and friends for years to come.. Anyone looking for precise, professional, beautiful, renovations that will stand the test of time should start and end RIGHT HERE.

Westgate Community

Committed, respectful, and responsive: working with Litwiller was more than we ever expected. As our first major home renovation, we knew what we wanted, needed, and could afford, but we didn’t know what we didn’t know and this was terrifying to us. To put it as simply as possible, the Litwiller team removed this fear. While we initially met with six contractors, David was the only one who took the time to answer all our questions, listened to what we wanted and was realistic with how it could be done. While we had heard a lot of “no’s” about turning our bungalow into a two-storey home, David said “yes.” The “yes” isn’t what made us go with Litwiller, but David’s experience and expertise through his solution for our renovation. David put our comfort and needs ahead of everything else. We never had to chase for an answer and were always aware of what was happening and when. When there were small glitches, David dealt with them promptly and with open communication at each step. We love our home again and know that we’ll be here for years to come. Working with Litwiller was definitely worth it. Not only would we recommend them without hesitation, but we will use them for all future renovations.
