"...And once they started, they never stopped. The crew worked hard, were courteous, and left the place tidy... Their workmanship was great, and they passed all the inspections without issues. I know a little about construction, and can tell you I was watching closely, and they were solid in how they do things. Another contractor talks about 'doing it right', and I can tell you Alan has that exact philosophy. Alan is very good with people, and can speak at a level you are comfortable with. I'm a picky person, and Alan conformed to my required style of updates. Sometimes contractors speak in such a way that it seems like a foreign language, and that is not the case with Alan... We are very happy with everything... I can say with absolute confidence that I have, and will continue to, recommend Alan/Fortress to those seeking a contractor."

"We are extremely satisfied with the services provided by Fortress Construction Incorporated...When we started a complete renovation of our century home in downtown Toronto...we hired previous contractors who claimed that they could do the job but within the first few weeks, we realized they were incompetent. ...We were in a very desperate situation and fortunately, upon the referral of a trusted friend, we hired Fortress Construction Incorporated...Fortress was retained to do all the structural and non-structural framing of our old house and to fix the sagging flooring of the whole house and to construct an elevator hoist way. All of these were extremely complex aspects of construction that require exceptional skills and a very diverse and solid knowledge base in order to deal with all the unexpected circumstances of an old house. Alan and his crew delivered excellent results in all aspects of the work and they finished within budget and on time. Most importantly, Alan was very honest and very fair with his pricing and he always shows a keen interest in giving his clients a perfect performance. He was determined to fix all the deficiencies made by other previous contractors without any extra charge to us as he considered giving a perfect end-product to his clients a top priority. We are very satisfied with Alan's work. He gave us close personal attention and was very pleasant (and humorous) to deal with. We highly recommend Fortress and Alan to anyone who needs any renovation work as Alan and his company are no doubt top-notch contractors/renovators."

"I wanted to write a personal note to you to acknowledge how much I have appreciated you on this project. There is no doubt in my mind that this project could have taken off sideways a number of times without you at the helm on a daily basis...I regularly observed you being demanding of your trades...I found you extremely professional at all times and always on top of every situation and the innumerable details of the job...You maintained good rapport on all levels with me...I truly appreciate your responsiveness...There were a number of challenges along the way where you showed your creativity and used your extensive industry knowledge to come up with solutions we were happy with...Alan, I want you to know the building you built for the Barrie Country Club has received rave reviews from the membership and community...My sincere thanks for managing this project as professionally and cheerfully as you did...It has been a real pleasure working with you..."

"...Unfortunately our original house was lost to fire and had to be rebuilt from the ground up...Alan was very conscious of our feelings in our heart rendering circumstances...We were most impressed with the workmanship and quality of construction which shows throughout. The home exceeds all of our expectations and we have many visitors exclaim on the outstanding appearance inside and out...Alan immediately established a good communication system that kept us informed of the progress of the project. He was always accessible to answer questions or concerns we had...Another quality that is impressive is the volume of work he can handle at one time...Again we want to extend our personal thanks to Alan for all his expertise and guidance during the building of our new home."
