We had the pleasure of working with Tanya and Mike Boisvert in Minden where every question was answered with advice based on in depth knowledge.  While choosing everything from design to cupboard door pulls is exciting it is also challenging.  Tanya made the process efficient and fun as we teamed up pieces of wall in the colour we had chosen with samples of countertops, back splashes, trim, cupboards,  flooring and fire place rocks.  Visiting Tanya and Mike was like coming home and at the same time they were professional.


Royal, as our friends promised, stood behind its products and building methods.  This is the second year we have lived at the cottage and throughout this time service people have visited to make adjustments.  The Site Construction Supervisor Dale Farrish has visited often, as recently as last week bearing a new fan for the porch.  He said that material used in the fan’s construction had not been satisfactory and removed the fan and installed a different one.  We had not noticed the problem.


Now we have experienced Royal quality and care and can recommend it to others as it was recommended to us.
