From the age of 8, our founder Tyler Heisler has always wanted to help people. From family to friends to complete strangers, Tyler was always lending a helping hand. Whether it be loading in groceries for an elderly lady who lived in his building at the young age of 9, cutting the neighbours lawn or shovelling their sidewalk in good faith at the age of 12, or working overtime without pay to get ahead of a schedule or timeline at the age of 14.
This approach has carried on into the business world. Tyler believes in transparency and respect and believes too often people are being taken advantage of in regard to new builds, renovations and developments.
Most "award-winning renovators" have secrets and hidden costs. These secrets and hidden costs can be lucrative 200k plus salaries, fancy trucks, company paid trips and functions, lavish company spending and more. Who pays for these high overhead costs? You do.
Material mark up is a huge part of a renovators business and profit. If you buy a custom Kitchen from a renovator that renovator needs to purchase that kitchen from one of their suppliers and then sell that product back to you. On average, a renovator will mark-up everything from the material to the labor, costing the consumer - you - thousands of wasted dollars.
Take a kitchen renovation as an example. What do you think that kitchen costs from the manufacturer? In most cases, your renovator is taking a huge mark up on that kitchen anywhere from 100-200% of the actual cost. The labor to install that kitchen, typically should cost on average from $800-$3000 at most. If you are paying anything more, or if your renovator is not showing you their cost from the manufacturer, you as client have to decide if that renovator is really the best choice for you.
It is important to do your research, ask questions, and expect transparency. KTH is not only a certified dealer to many manufacturing companies in and around Calgary and Regina, but we make 0% profit from the materials. KTH charges a management fee for each project - this ensures you are getting quality, delivered on time and on budget. Our team provides all of the trades for your project, and we ensure they are all certified to take on your project.
Our labor is carefully managed on each project, and this is done with LEAN Six Sigma. Have you ever wondered why two Drive Thru windows exist in a Drive Thru? It is for efficiency and KTH operates the same.
Tools are cleaned and carefully laid out for each job, so no one is ravaging through a tool box wasting time looking for that specific tool needed, product is ordered well in advance so our trades are not standing around wasting time, our vendors and suppliers are strategically involved in our projects, executing site visits and meetings to ensure delivery and schedules are adhered to and their product is meeting and exceeding our expectations. All of this is very carefully managed and followed, so we can continue to save our clients money and do so by staying on budget and on schedule.
KTH promises to provide you with this transparency throughout your project and after. Maintaining relationships is crucial for our growth and without you and your referrals we would not be able to offer you such savings.
