Widely recognized for our high standard of client communications and workmanship, and for exceptional follow-up service, Litwiller Developments became one of the first two Calgary renovation companies to be accepted into the National Home Warranty Program. The company was created in 1977 as Litwiller Construction, when a 22-year old journeyman carpenter named David Litwiller signed a contract to work as a screen door and ceramic tile installer for what was then known as Simpson Sears, later starting a general construction and renovation business. He quickly acquired a reputation as a skilled, imaginative carpenter and worked steadily in home renovations and commercial tenant improvements. We've been building dreams for Calgarians for over 30 years.

We hired Litwiller Renovations based on word of mouth recommendation from a trusted friend, and we were not disappointed. David spent a good deal of time with us before we decided to hire him talking about what we were looking for and going over ideas for our space. Once the project started David kept in contact with us; the work progressed steadily and there were no unexplained delays or extra costs outside of specific requests made by us for additional work. The worksite was clean and professional, and the workers hired to do the job were courteous and skilled. Throughout the build, we were inconvenienced as little as possible. The final product matched the architect's vision beautifully, and we absolutely love the space. At the neighbourhood block party to celebrate the final construction even the neighbours commented on the courtesy and professionalism they witnessed during the build, and the quality and look of the finished product. After the success of this project, we are moving forward with a basement renovation with David and Litwiller Renovations.

We got our porch/desk redone with Litwiller. It was a challenging project because the house is over 100 years old and we wanted to keep its historic character. The journey has not been easy, but Litwiller have been very patient, and always available for very insightful advice and open to listen to our concerns. The hard work and dedication of Paul, Bob and David himself has been outstanding. We are extremely happy with the end result. Many passing neighbours have shared with us how pleased they are about the look of our porch/desk and the character it brings to our street. The quality of the work is undisputable.

David is an honest & conscientious contractor. I have no hesitation in recommending him for your project. I was so happy with my renovation in Renfrew that I hired him again to build my new house in Tuxedo. He listened to me and accommodated all my ecological requests.

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. David and Paul helped us learn a lot about what we didn’t know. 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. For us, it was extremely important that we stay in the neighbourhood, but we simply needed more space for our growing family and adding a second storey to our bungalow was the most effective way to do so. 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. That said, David also made us do our own homework in making sure that 1) Litwiller was the right company for our renovation, and 2) making us aware of everything involved to make us feel comfortable prior to even starting. It was incredibly important that we were also able to live in our home throughout the time of our renovation – not just from a cost perspective, but a convenience one as well. What we didn’t want was to live in a renovation zone and the team that David has made it so we barely knew they were there. Part way through our renovation, our initial Project Manager had to leave and Paul took over. Paul did a phenomenal job coming into the project, getting up to speed, and finding answers if we didn’t know something. What’s even more important is that both David and Paul 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, both David and Paul dealt with them promptly and with open communication at each step. The biggest impact it’s had on our family? We love our home again and know that we’ll be here for years to come. For our family, working with Litwiller was definitely worth it. Not only would we recommend them without hesitation, but we will use them for all future renovations. Angela and Jose H. Westgate Community

I hired Litwiller Renovations and Custom Homes to do a number of projects around the house including: converting a flex room to an elegant office space, updating a walkout basement to include a custom kitchen area for the mother in-law, converting a bathroom from a tub/shower combination to a tiled walk in shower, adding a set of stairs off of the walkout deck, dry walling the garage and numerous small additional interior and exterior jobs. The people at Litwiller were professional and helpful at all times. Their sub-trades were excellent. Litwiller provided a detailed estimate up front, kept detailed accounting records of all the jobs and did a full reconciliation at the end of the project. I can honestly say that I would hire them again, as I did, for a second round of small projects this year.

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.

Major rennovation that included a new basement, new garage, new laundry & storage room, new boot room and rennovations in every room of the house. Also, the front and back exteriors of the home were remodelled. The Litwiller professionals were invaluable by ensuring high quailty performance by tradesman while providing insightful recommendations during the rennovation process. We chose Litwiller to initiate a long term relationship with a high quality rennovation company. Rennovations 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 rennovation 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.

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 (pictures attached). 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.

In negotiating phase
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.

We are currently 2/3 of the way through an existing renovation on the upper floor of our home.. ( Note: we are repeat clients, having used Litwiller several times previously). The scope of work includes redoing (in entirety) two bathrooms. replacing carpet with hardwood throughout the upper level, repainting, installing new light fixtures, the works. Basically, our upstairs is being recreated :-) The reno began on September 8th, 2015 and at the end of September, my husband and I left for several weeks vacation. We have just returned home and are SO PLEASED with both the work that has been done and the condition of our house. Everything is on schedule and the quality of construction is exceptional. Litwiller Renovations considers customer satisfaction job one, and it shows in everything they do. Clients have hands on contact with everyone involved and no question is too small, no request is bypassed, and no deadline is a moving target. We are 100% satisfied and would (and do) recommend Litwiller to all of our friends and family.
