We contracted Lambert Brothers Construction as General Contractor for a complicated structural and architectural renovation in 2015. Some of the work involved stabilizing a heavy long span steel beam supporting half the house and repairing multiple ceiling and wall cracks on two floors that were created by excessive movements of the beam. The project involved carpentry work, considerable drywall and texturing, structural welding, reinforced concrete footings, heavy duty telepost installation, removal and replacement of vapor barrier insulation and protection of floors and walls during 4 months of construction.
The work was supervised by a structural engineer who needed to provide on-site direction and remedies as the scope of problems were exposed. He commented to me once that he was quite pleased with Lambert’s ability and proactiveness in providing solutions to construction problems. We were very pleased with the team that Lambert Brothers used for our project – both their own staff and the very competent subtrades who carried out various aspects of the work.
Part of the project involved “cost plus” work because it wasn’t possible to confirm pricing until demolition had been completed – we felt that Richard Lambert dealt very fairly and honestly with us both for the cost plus portion of the work as well as the changes we asked for during the project progress.
Probably one of the best commendations from a satisfied customer is to employ the Contractor again – and that’s what we did. This year (2016) we contracted with Lambert Brothers to build an ensuite shower for us and we are very satisfied with the results.
Thank you Richard for your care and attention during our projects, we enjoyed working with you.

We are very pleased with the end result. Richard is hard working, dependable and detail-oriented and takes pride in the work he does. We highly recommend Lambert Brothers for any of your renovation needs.
What I appreciated was I could have a smaller budget but not compromise the quality. Everything was taken care of from getting the proper permits and even picking colors, which I was so glad for! Richard proved to us that he was reliable and committed to the assignment… It has been over a year and we have not had to contact Lambert Brothers, which is too bad because it would have been nice to see Richard again! Thank you Lambert Brothers – we would not hesitate to contact you for any future needs.
Richard is a true professional in every sense of the word. He takes great pride in his work, wanting every detail to function optimally and look attractive. He involves customers in decision-making and communicates his work intentions throughout the project… Richard always explained my options, and never treated me in a condescending manner. Also, I felt totally comfortable having Richard in and around my home. He is very sociable and interacted professionally and personably with me and with my neighbors.
Lambert Brothers Construction was recommended to us by a friend 15 months ago… Richard takes much pride in everything he does; all tasks are completed with very high standards. We would have no problem recommending Lambert Brothers Construction to anyone.
My husband and I are thrilled with the work Lambert Brothers Construction did on our home. We were the victims of a previous contractor who did awful work and left much of our project incomplete, and in a dangerous state. Richard rescued us from this situation, and fixed the previous contractor’s mess – He is truly Edmonton’s answer to “Holmes on Homes”! He was also very respectful of our home and family… I have already recommended him in glowing terms to my friends and family looking for a reliable contractor, and I have plans to do further reno work with him in the years to come.
