Due to a leaking fridge which caused extensive damage to the ceiling in the basement, Pukka Renovations was hired and they completed the repairs and painting.

They were always in contact with us as to date and time of arrival and clean up after was exceptional. We were very pleased with their work and would highly recommend their services.

Thank you very much for a job well done.

Erhard and Lorane – Okotoks

Just wanted to follow-up and thank you for the incredible work you did developing our basement. We appreciated your careful and detailed work as well as your recommendations and the willingness to work towards providing exactly what we were looking for. We highly valued your reliability and trust ability. It is wonderful having the basement developed and we are all enjoying it - kids are in heaven with the recreation room and our middle daughter is shortly to move into her bedroom. The built-in bench and "secret door" are unique and done very well and both really add to our overall enjoyment of the basement.

–Laura & Sean, Okotoks

I would highly recommend Pukka Renovations with no hesitation. Spencer recently completed our basement and we are thrilled. The finishing work is amazing and absolutely perfect. The attention to detail, professionalism, and commitment to the job is evident. This work was completed in a timely fashion, I received great communication, and he took great care to keep the area clean throughout the project. Thanks for the great job!

–Kendra and Ken, Okotoks

After lining up several contractors for quotes on developing our basement, Pukka Renovations was the most impressive from the start. Spencer was not only extremely professional it was also very clear that he understood his business. He provided his quote within the timeframe he said he would and it left no room for misinterpretation. He clearly broke down the costs and gave an itemized list to ensure we knew what we were to provide and all costs ahead of time. There were very few things that we had to source ourselves and Spencer gave clear direction on supplier recommendations and the timeframes we would need to have those things completed by to remain on schedule.

The suppliers he referred us to were all top notch and when they heard we were working with Pukka Renovation they also sang their praises. Spencer's referrals not only saved us money they were also a pleasure to work with. We were also told by a town inspector that that sub trades Spencer used were rated very highly and no issues were found in any of our inspections. We could trust that both Spencer and Vikki would look after everything they said they would and feel they went above and beyond what we were expecting. The transition from our main floor to the basement is seamless - we have the same style of doors, doorknobs, trim, ceiling and even rounded corners to match the rest of our house. All of the sourcing to do the matching was completed by Spencer and Vikki and made things so easy on us.

At the time of the quote, we mentioned that we were expecting and would want the job completed by the baby's birth. Spencer was very honest and said he didn't know if he could meet our deadline. We were so impressed that he was willingly to sacrifice getting the job by not trying to over deliver that we went with Pukka in spite of possibly having a house under construction with a toddler and newborn. We were blown away by Spencer and Vikki's scheduling, not only did they meet our deadline they exceeded it and finished the renovation a month before the baby's due date! They had found some time prior to when they was supposed to start our project to fit in a few initial tasks, and that gave them a head start on the rest of the renovation. There was never a time or doubt in our minds that Spencer and Vikki wouldn't show up when they said they would and they always took the time to tidy the space before leaving at the end of each day.

We were incredibly impressed with Pukka Renovations – they didn't over promise on anything, they stuck to the quote they provided us, they gave a clear payment schedule, the work they did exceeded our expectations and we now have a beautiful space for our growing family to use for years and years to come. If we ever need any more work done on our house in the future, our first and only call would be to Spencer and Vikki! We have already passed their information onto many of our friends and family and will continue to do so. Trust us when we say that you won't be disappointed with hiring this amazing team.

–Jessica & Scott, Okotoks

We contracted Pukka Renovations (Spencer) to finish our basement in our home in Okotoks and we couldn't be happier with the results. Our basement was completely undeveloped prior to the renovation. Pukka Renovations did the framing, drywall, electrical, plumbing, painting, and flooring. We now have a beautiful space complete with a family room, full bathroom, bedroom, art studio, and storage.

Spencer is a man who takes pride in his work and strives to provide the highest quality service possible. He is a skilled tradesman with many years of experience. Each step of the project was communicated clearly with us, and the work was completed within a very reasonable time frame. There were no surprises when it came to the budget. Spencer's estimate was accurate and forthright. Any changes were communicated to us immediately. Spencer always had our best interests in mind- he presented all of our options in a straight-forward manner so we could make informed decisions that were right for us.

Our basement is absolutely beautiful! If you are looking for an honest, reliable company to complete a project for your home, we highly recommend Pukka Renovations.

– Mark and Jennifer, Okotoks

We used Pukka Renovations to complete a full basement renovation including a living area, 3 piece bath and full kitchen for business use. Spencer's workmanship and eye for perfection is incredible. He was always punctual and did everything as promised. No surprises, no extra bills. We couldn't be happier, everyone raves about the finishes that have seen it. I highly recommend Pukka Renovations, you won't be disappointed!

– Kristi & Adam, Okotoks

Spencer did an incredible job on our basement. We were very impressed with the craftsmanship and finishing, as well as the competent tradesmen he brought in when he needed.

Always courteous, Spencer worked with us and put our ideas into reality and helped guide us along with suggestions of what would work in our space. I've already recommended him to others, and will continue to do so. A class act for sure :).

Thanks again,
– The Matthews

Pukka Renovations consistently met or exceeded our expectations during the development of our walk-out level. Spencer is dependable, punctual, conscientious and hard-working. His dedication to his craft and his goal of providing superior service was evident in every aspect of the work he did for us.

We had confidence in Pukka Renovations at every step of the way and would recommend Spencer to anyone considering home renovations and general contractor services.

Thank you Pukka Renovations and thanks Spencer.

Thank you,
– Dan and Tanis, Okotoks


"Pukka Renovations was a tremendously positive experience for us. They designed and completed our entire basement renovation. The project was completed on time and within budget. Spencer and his staff were personable, positive and true to their word. Three statements illustrate our renovation experience with Pukka: Quality craftsmanship, quality product, and quality business practices. It was a pleasure to work with Spencer.

We highly recommend Pukka renovations!'
– Rob and Tracy

Hi Spencer,

We want to thank you for all the work you did in our en-suite bathroom.

Your workmanship is one of the best I have seen. The tile work is just beautiful.

You are very meticulous and precise and as a homeowner I appreciate those qualities.

I would not hesitate to hire you again.

Thank you,
– Line and Rick McKenna


Linda and I wanted to write this short note to thank you for the recent renovation to our basement.

The flood of 2013 left our finished basement area totally devastated as it did with many others in High River and Southern Alberta. The shortage of qualified contractors and the abundance of those not so qualified, added to an already stressful time. Almost ready to give up, we were given a couple of names of local contractors from the Home Depot Contractor department. Yours was the first name on the list and after speaking with you we were confident we had found "our man". So much so, that we didn't even call the second name on the list. As it turns out, we now know that we made the right decision and are very pleased the process from contract signing to finish. We are very happy with the work, quality of materials, and speed with which the work was completed.

Our thanks is not only for the excellent workmanship and the obvious pride you take in your work, but also for the suggestions, prompt communication, and willingness to accommodate our schedule. We have already given two of our neighbours your business card with a high recommendation. Not something we would do without complete confidence in your workmanship and fair pricing.

Again thanks from very satisfied customers.
– Michael and Linda – High River

After not being sold on other contractors that had been recommended to us, we decided to look elsewhere. We came across Pukka Renovations and decided to get a quote. From the time we first met Spencer, we felt that he would be easy to work with to complete our basement and the quote seemed reasonable. Our gut instinct was right. Throughout the renovation, Spencer consistently communicated what work would be completed in the following few days. If we had any questions, Spencer was extremely quick to return texts or calls. He made sure we were pleased with every step of the process as each was completed. Even when work needed to be subcontracted, Spencer continued regular communication with us to ensure they had arrived on time and that they had completed their work to our satisfaction.

In addition to being impressed with Spencer's communication skills, we were also impressed with his workmanship. The attention he paid to detail and the pride he took in his work caused him to put in some long days to ensure that he was pleased enough with it to show us for our own approval.

Spencer prided himself on pleasing us with the final product. Spencer offered many recommendations along the way, but also continually let us know that it was our home and that he would do what we wished. We are also pleased that Spencer prided himself on keeping on schedule. He started when he said he would and it was completed in the time frame he had originally given to us. He also prided himself on keeping the basement tidy throughout the six week reno.

Lastly, we felt very comfortable with the payment schedule, From the start, we knew what payments would be due after each step of the process and there were no surprises when we were finished.

We would definitely use Spencer again and have already referred him to friends.
– Don and Tenielle Bachek

I would certainly recommend (Spencer) the owner and operator of Pukka renovations who we recently contracted to replace flooring and interior wood finishing in our home. Spencer did quality work, he didn't waste time, he cleaned up and performed the task at a fair price.

Thanks again Spencer
– Warren and Sara Green High River Alberta

We cannot thank Spencer enough for the wonderful main bathroom and powder room renovations he did for us recently.

I found Spencer on the internet and was very nervous but after reading all the testimonials I felt confident to give him a call. I must say that every single word you might read is absolutely true.

Spencer was a pleasure to have in our home....his work is perfect....his main ambition is to please his client, he goes above and beyond expectations, and his prices are most fair...After a very unnoticeable demolition, we had new tile work done, which created drywall repair, then painting.

Some extra work came into play and Spencer was only to willing to help out. I love my new bathrooms and get constant compliments.

Spencer also was so willing to help out our son on a mistake that was made in his new home. His advice was much appreciated and helpful.

If we ever have more renos to do, Spencer will be the first one I call.

Spencer, I miss your cheery smile and chit chat....thank you...

– Wendy and Ron Gilmore, Okotoks, AB.

Hello Spencer:

We want to take this opportunity to extend our thanks for our kitchen renovation which you completed for us recently.

Your honesty, attention to detail and timely updates were traits we came to appreciate as we worked through the steps for completing the project.

You are definitely a craftsman with very high standards especially given the tight timeline I requested.

Some of my material choices (tile) and trimming changes created additional tasks for you but you worked many long days to complete this by our deadline.

You went above and beyond our original job request and that was very much appreciated.

We stayed on budget and the project finished on time which was fantastic!

We have enjoyed having you in our home and look forward to working with you in the future.

– P/B Mulley, Okotoks, AB.

We had Pukka Renovations in our home most recently to replace all the flooring on the main floor which included linoleum and carpet with in floor heated porcelain tile. From the first day of demolition [which was considerable] to the last tile laid Spencer's professional attitude, quality of workmanship and attention to detail were exceptional! His consideration for us during the renovation went above and beyond our expectations, making our life as easy as possible allowing us continued use of our kitchen and access throughout the house. We previously had Spencer in to do the finish carpentry on our basement which we are just as pleased with!

We highly recommend Spencer for the quality of work, his considerate approach, his fair pricing and creative input.

– Lisa Lamothe and Rene Lariviere.

Hi Spencer,

We just wanted to thank you again for an amazing bathroom reno.You exceeded our expectations and were a pleasure to deal with. Your craftsmanship and attention to detail was top notch and we are so happy with the finished product. We will definitely be calling you again when it is time to renovate our home. I will be recommending you to all of my friends.

Thanks again.

– Kathy Stillie, Okotoks

My faith in contractors has been completely restored since meeting and working with Spencer (Pukka Renovations). He is extremely easy to work with, completes the work in a timely manner, takes pride in his work, and to me, goes above and beyond! I am totally pleased with my new basement, and bonus, it has been a real pleasure working with Spencer on this project. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat!

– Melane

I was very wary when looking for someone to put in new floors in our downtown condominium. Having lived in many old houses in the past, myself and my family have had terrible experiences with contractors being unreliable or ineffective. However my opinion of contractors has changed due to the fantastic job that Spencer from Pukka Renovations did!

Not only did he do a fantastic job, but he also has great customer service skills and deals well with people. Our place looks much better and more modern and Spencer also quoted us 1000$ less than any other home renovation company in Calgary. His work was fast, efficient and without any errors. I have and will continue to recommend Pukka Renovations to all of my friends and family.

– Ilana, Calgary

In our 15 years of renovating experience, we can say with hand-on-heart that Spencer has been the most professional, skilled and amiable contractor we have ever worked with.

Often these projects can be a headache, however, Pukka Renovations made the whole process painless; it was a breath of fresh air. Spencer's attention to detail was consistent and gratifying. The work was competitively priced, completed quickly and efficiently and his timekeeping was excellent.

If you need a reliable, experienced professional who will tick all the boxes, your search stops here. We can't recommend him highly enough

– The Brown Family, Okotoks

We've had the privilege of Pukka Renovations working in our residence on a few renovations from installing flooring to adding the finishing touches on our basement. Couldn't have been happier with the end results. Looking forward to having them back again for some more renovations real soon.

– Dennis & Nicola, Okotoks

I had the opportunity of hiring Spencer for a hardwood floor install in my home. Spencer was committed, professional, accommodating and trustworthy. His pricing very reasonable, and his attention to details commendable. He went beyond my expectations with the job, in fact I hired him for more work as I got my home ready to be put on the market.

I have recently hired Spencer for work in my new home and referred him to many of my friends and business associates.

You will not be disappointed when you hire Spencer for renovations/enhancements to your home.

– Jackie, Calgary

I have known Spencer Pitcher as both a master tradesman and close friend for a number of years and have employed his services for various projects, including maintenance work on a property we rent out and renovations to our current home. The latter includes the entire refitting of two bathrooms and a kitchen, and floor tiling throughout, all of which was carried out to a very high standard, in good time and with the least possible disruption and mess.

I would recommend Spencer and his company Pukka Renovations in the highest possible terms.

– Richard, Okotoks

Dear Spencer,

I just wanted to write and thank you so much for the recent basement renovation you completed for us.

We are so grateful at how hard you worked and how efficiently to complete the basement on time. We only had a short deadline before our relatives arrived but you managed to complete everything we required with no hassles . It was really nice to know that you kept your promises and arrived when you said you were going to and always kept us informed on the progress. The whole process from helping us decide on a workable design to even tiding up once you were done we are extremely grateful for.

We would not hesitate in contacting you again for any future projects and would be happy to recommend you to others.

Thank you again.

Yours sincerely,

– Maggie, Okotoks

We are so pleased with the renovation in our basement, it was finished with care and attention to detail and very professional. When the red deer inspector came in he stated that it was a professional job. There was no cutting corners and the job was done to perfection, to code and the way it is supposed to be completed. Spencer is a perfectionist and it shines in our basement for sure. If you wish to contact us with questions ask for Janie or Bruce. Absolutely fab.

– Janie or Bruce, Red Deer

"Pukka Renovations has recently completed the rebuild of our basement. We were very pleased with the quality of the the work and the professionalism of Spencer who went above and beyond to answer all our questions while doing all the little extra things he did to make the job a success. We are already planning a kitchen and bathroom reno and will be having Spencer back to do the work".

– Karen, MD Foothills

"I have used Pukka renovations for flooring and window installation, and would have no issue hiring Pukka for future renovations projects. Spencer was very reliable and the floors and windows look great (very professional)!"

– Kylana, Cayley, AB

Last summer I needed some work done in my home and I was very fortunate to met Spencer with Pukka Renovations. I explained to Spencer what it was that needed to done in my home and I have been thrilled every day since the job was completed! I have had numerous home renovations, big and small completed over the years BUT the quality of work and professionalism that Spencer provided was truly one of a kind awesome.

Spencer's work is precise, consistent and his attention to detail is fantastic! I have, and will continue to definitely recommend Spencer and Pukka Renovations to all family and friends looking for any degree of work they need done so it is completed correctly and timely the first time. Contractors in today's economy and times are difficult to find and now that I have worked with Spencer and Pukka Renovations my home renovation nightmares are over.


– Kelly, Calgary

Spencer worked on two projects for us. He enclosed a hole above our fireplace with drywall and he designed and built a set of built-ins in our mudroom with hooks, shelves for storage and sections for each member of our family. Although these seemed like small jobs, as opposed to a kitchen reno or basement development, Spencer approached them like a professional. After listening to what we wanted and making some suggestions of his own, he presented us with a drawing and different samples of stains for the project. His ideas were spot on and we got exactly the look and function that we were going for.

We had never worked with a contractor before, so we were pleased and relieved to find Spencer so approachable and reliable. The cost of the project was quite reasonable and his attention to detail is appreciated and shows in the high quality of his work. He really does go above and beyond in encouraging us to contact him if we notice any imperfections that may appear over time. We have had so many compliments on the professional look of the built-ins. We couldn't be any happier with the end result.

I would not hesitate to recommend or work with Spencer in the future.

– Kristin and Neil, Okotoks

"I don't even call for a second or third quote or opinion, it's just one call always to Pukka Renovations to tell me when he can start! I know whatever the job to be done it will be done with craftsmanship, timeliness and my favourite - cleanliness. My basement, my glass storm doors, rustic shelves and newly created third room have all been great additions to my home. Even the most dusty drywall jobs you could never tell it had just been sanded – not a spec of dust anywhere in the house. I recommend Spencer to anyone I hear needing any sort of renovations and he's the only phone call I make when I need anything done."

– Hilary, Okotoks

"We feel lucky to have found Pukka Renovations. We appreciate Spencer's honest and helpful advice, friendly communication, and superior workmanship."

– Kim, Okotoks
