  • HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT

    • We do it Irish Style - Meaning when we start your job we work full-time on completing that job so we finish your project as soon as possible.  Most construction companies in Canada run several jobs at one time which can delay getting your job finished for a number of months if not years.
    • Our name is our Fame - We've built up our reputation and it's important for us to continue to offer quality, trustworthy and reliable renovation services.  Our tradesman are all skilled, experienced, certified and follow safety regulations and care about your renovation job.  
    • We price our Jobs Competitively - We're not the cheapest construction company in Calgary but we do price our jobs competitively.  When consulting with clients we will make recommendations to help lower their costs whenever possible and work with them on their ideas and help them stay on budget. 
    • Communication, Communication, Communication - At Tara Construction we keep you in the loop.  We want to make sure you understand what's happening with your renovation, when it's happening and we might add in a bit of Irish humour while we're at it.
