The Flintstones Difference

Our ability to, “Do it once. Do it right”, comes from our rigorous process. Our decades of construction experience have taught us the importance of due diligence. We examine each project from every angle, from permits & inspections to accurate scheduling & budgeting so there are never any unexpected surprises. We ensure that you are an active part in the process and are always informed and updated throughout your construction and renovation project.

 

Project Planning

As licensed builders with over 1,000 successful projects in Greater Victoria to our name, we have the experience and expertise to understand the importance of a well-planned project at any scale. For us, planning includes everything from open dialogue with our homeowner, to design, to permitting and planning with divisions of the municipal government and ultimately to the scheduling and management of your project through to  completion.

 

Project Management

Our project managers have a wealth of knowledge and years of experience in all aspects of construction. The project manager assigned to your project won’t be overloaded with a multitude of jobs so you can feel confident your project is being well-managed and nothing will be overlooked. Utilizing both our design and construction services saves you time and money. Flintstones ensures excellent communication and clear accountability. On top of your project manager, we have approximately 50 full-time employees at our office, all with years of experience to assist with troubleshooting challenges as they come up.

 

Engineering & Permits

We use engineers to help with defining problems, conducting and narrowing research on building codes, analyzing criteria, identifying and analyzing solutions, and making recommendations for the best way to give you what you want. We have a team of trusted engineers that we’ve worked with for many years, and call on them frequently to provide solutions that we can implement, particularly when there are many facets to a project. You wouldn’t want us to build your foundation on a bed of clay – where it might sink unevenly in 5 to 10 years, resulting in a loss of your home that you have worked so hard for. We also acquire building permits on your behalf so you can feel confident that your project will always meet or exceed BC building code standards. Remember, we do it once, and do it right!

 

Communication

One of our primary beliefs is the importance of efficient and effective communication. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to get the job done right. From the beginning of each and every project, we establish strong lines of communication right from the get-go. We emphasize transparent and consistent updating and reporting at every stage of planning and construction. Utilizing both our design and construction services saves you time and money.

 

Equipment

At Flintstones, our knowledge and experience, use of modern state-of-the-art equipment and ongoing commitment to keeping up-to-date on emerging technology are part of what sets us apart. In our ever-changing world, our industry is constantly being updated with new tools and technologies that make us more productive and efficient in all aspects of our business and processes. The result of staying on top of new equipment and technology, is greater efficiency, precision and an unparalleled level of craftsmanship for you and your projects. At Flintstones, we make a point of constantly keeping on top of new and innovative equipment. Having our own tools and equipment, vehicle fleet, large waste bins, dump truck, equipment trailers, and more, allow us to do the best possible work for you, efficiently and expertly.

“Flintstones re-created a beautiful yard for my ocean front heritage home. Stone walls, stairs and pathways; drainage; lighting; wooden stairway and landing; and house repair and improvement. This company can do it all! They are courteous, clean and caring and finish the job to the customers’ complete satisfaction.”

Lanne

“We were faced with some unexpected issues just after moving into our new home. Lucky for us we made the smart decision to contact Flintstones. Their timely communication, sensitivity to our situation and well thought out plan made the decision to engage them an easy one. The team provided immediate comfort that only the work necessary would be done, that it would be completed to the highest standard and priced fair for the incredible value. We were constantly kept abreast of the project plan, brought into the decision-making process and were extremely pleased with the final product.”

Matt & Becki

“Words sufficiently fail me to adequately convey the quality, attention, and professionalism of all the employees of Flintstones Masonry and their hands-on owner Mike De Palma. We had a decrepit, small, poorly-utilized patio which has high exposure by the front door and wanted one that was low maintenance, semi-private and practical. Flintstones wisely convinced us to have a garden architect design the patio area for us. . . and it resulted in a great, collaborative outcome. Not only did the Flintstones help us with creating spectacular, first-rate concrete and stonework portions of the job, but they were involved in helping us obtain and coordinate the carpentry, electrical, irrigation, and gardening aspects as well. What a team! They get great grades!”

Richard

“I couldn’t be happier with hiring Flintstones to finish out the basement in my 1912 Fairfield home. The finished space is absolutely stunning! Everyone was such a pleasure to work with and the entire process flowed smoothly and as promised. They truly are the best!!! I’m already looking forward to having them help me with my next project!”

Laura

“I must applaud the service we received from Flintstones. Their professional attitude and work ethic was exceptional. They had great design ideas and their attention to detail is second to none. They were careful to protect our property and gardens and they took the time to do a thorough cleanup afterwards. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Flintstones Masonry.”

Arch

“I am at a loss of words as to describe how truly amazing every member of the Flintstones team has been with our chimney repair. From our first emergency call with a leak into our basement and living room to cleaning our entire front yard as part of completing the job every step has been ideal. True craftsmen and conscientious members of our community feels like a huge understatement. Mike and every member of his crew are always upbeat, hard working and friendly. A strong focus on both job site safety and quality of work for the “boots on the ground” masons was both refreshing and admirable in a day and age where unfortunately these important considerations are glazed over in favour of profits by too many contractors.”
