"We have nothing but good things to say about Shamrock. We were in a situation where we needed help to finish up our project and make some renovations along the way. We were having difficulty getting someone who could help us given the relatively small scope of work and small town location for our recreational property. Dale and the team at Shamrock have been nothing short of fantastic for us. They are extremely knowledgeable, which helped them to address all of our needs and offer very realistic solutions for our ideas. We found their work to be very high quality and they have delivered on everything we asked of them. Most importantly they have given us peace of mind that comes when you can trust that everything is being taken care of better than we would have done ourselves. Shamrock went above and beyond and that included taking the time to make sure the kids monkey bars got put up - thanks guys! I would highly recommend Shamrock and feel they would bring value to any construction project."
Jeff Marchant, Calgary, AB
"I can say nothing but great things about Dale and the crew at Shamrock Mountain Building. Very knowledgable and probably one of the best stone masons around. Loves his craft and it shows! The work he and the team did was of the highest quality and we are completely satisfied. The original stone work in 2004 was incorrectly installed and as a result, significant repair work was needed. As the second owner, I inherited a big problem and needed someone who was experienced and excellent at their craft, smart in order to problem solve the situation and honest so we knew what to expect regarding costs. From the initial detailed quote, to keeping me informed daily re progress and problems, Dale was always transparent, honest, and reliable. His crew were also reliable and trustworthy. A great company and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing stone mason work to be done."
Gelaine Pearman, Calgary, AB
"Shamrock provided several aspects of our new home build including masonry work, tiling, and landscaping. They built us a beautiful fireplace from Bridger granite and also rocked several rock walls. They have completed the landscaping for us. The landscape included rock retaining walls, pavers, and several metal elements- I beam railings and Corten steel steps. They are a great group to work with and have great ideas that enhanced the project. We would recommend them without hesitation."
Ira Darling, Calgary, AB
"My wife and I decided to do a kitchen reno on our 1912 home and given the age of our house, we knew we had to find someone who had a strong ability to handle unexpected challenges and would deliver high standards of quality. Dale Higgins/Shamrock were referred to us and we got the above and more - they're solid, trustworthy and honest. Very pleased with everything as the reno was on budget and on schedule. High level of workmanship! Fully recommended!"
Craig & Stacey Milligan, Calgary, AB
"We had the pleasure of working with Shamrock to complete the reconstruction of substantially all of our inner city home following the June 2013 flood. The restoration included replacing substantially all basement and main floor mechanical, basement framing and insulation, total main floor reconstruction, garage floor replacement, garage insulation and wall repairs/replacement, and numerous repairs to the exterior of the house. Shamrock was exceptionally organized and completed the job on a timely basis and on budget. James and Dale are extremely hard working, honest and maintained communication throughout the project. Shamrock met our expectations and we would recommend them to anyone."
Kenna Windle, Calgary, AB
"We had the opportunity to work with Dale, James and the rest of the fine folks at Shamrock on a bathroom renovation project. The project started small, but escalated when numerous pre-existing issues were found behind the walls and under the floor. The guys were forthright and professional, kept us up to date on the project and its evolving schedule, showed up each day when promised and left the worksite clean at the end of every day. The resulting workmanship was second to none. We could have chosen a cheaper option, but the peace of mind in knowing that the finished project was done right was worth it to us. Finally, although not a testament to their work but the character of the Shamrock crew, when a freak September snow storm hit and we were left with a gigantic mess in our yard, they jumped in and helped us out without hesitation. Even going so far as to haul away all of the broken branches. Outstanding service. We would absolutely use Shamrock again for our next project.
Jay & Kristi Lalach, Calgary, AB
"It has been a pleasure to work with Dale and the boys from Shamrock. Their workmanship and professionalism is unparalleled. After speaking with several other masons, it was apparent that Dale's expertise and knowledge of stonework, installation, and the engineering required were what we needed to successfully complete our project. The attention to detail and pride in their craftsmanship is apparent. Shamrock installed well over 3,000 sq. feet of natural stone and tile outside and inside our new home, we couldn't be happier with the result and we would be more than happy to recommend them."
Shanon Sather, Bull Moose Capital, Calgary, AB
"It has been refreshing to work with the team from Shamrock Mountain Building. They are all skilled craftsmen that take great pride in the quality of their work. Shamrock's company culture of responsibility, strong work ethic, and friendliness starts at the top. Dale does exactly what he says he will do. There are no surprises. All the Shamrock guys that I have met are accommodating and work well with the other trades on the projects. I would recommend Shamrock to anyone and be very comfortable that they would be fully satisfied."
Matt Wilson, Urban Craft Homes, Calgary, AB
"I was very pleased with Shamrock and the work that was completed in my home. The two projects were done very, very well. Their craftsmanship is outstanding. The redesign of the hearth to make current looks fabulous and the tiling in the kitchen has garnered many compliments. Dale and his crew were on time, professional and respectful. A pleasure to have in my home. I would highly recommend Shamrock."
Rhonda Workman, Rideau Park, Calgary, AB
"Dale recently completed my retaining wall and slab work. He prides himself on quality, kept me up to date on the timelines and came in on budget. What more can you ask for. Thank you."
Gary Wong, Calgary, AB
"Kim & I both feel that it has been fortuitous for us to have had Shamrock Mountain Building as lead contractor for our home rebuild in Roxboro. The quality of the work performed has been first rate, matched by realistic quotes for the services provided. Additionally, the subcontractors brought forward by Shamrock have coordinated effectively and have stayed within budget for the challenging project of transforming our flood ravaged home.
We had initial discussions with Shamrock for a rebuild of our front steps and walkway prior to the June 2013 flood. As fate would have it, Shamrock's first interaction with us would be, as to our most pleasant surprise, a volunteer day provided by Dale's full crew for flood cleanup purposes. Naturally we engage Shamrock's services thereafter, and now have our rebuilt home fully usable once again, without unnecessary delay.
As dale indicated to us, prior to the flood, "my price is my price; and I only take work on that I can effectively manage". Are there cheaper contractors out there?: yes, there may well be, but we have recognized true value from Shamrock's services and a sincere willingness to achieve closure (to the client's satisfaction) on individual projects.
Most sincerely, James Skinner & Kimberley McLean, Calgary, AB
“The Shamrock boys take great pride in their work and did a bang up job on our residence. Everyone on the project, including a demanding architect, had praise for their quality of workmanship and professionalism. I would hire them again, no question.”
“Shamrock and Dale have been providing masonry and full construction services to my recreational property in Golden for many years. The professionalism and workmanship has always been best in class. Frequent updates throughout the project and completing on budget each time has been the experience I have had consistently with Dale and his team. Without doubt he would be my first choice on future projects for both our recreational and primary residence properties.”
“Shamrock has worked for HR Pacific for the past 6 years on projects in Kicking Horse as well as in Calgary. Dale Higgins and his crew have been one of our most reliable, talented trades we have employed. We have used Shamrock for landscaping , rock and brick masonry, ceramic tile installation , concrete finishing as well as numerous other related projects. HR Pacific has completed numerous projects where attention to detail is extremely important. Dale and his crew are of the caliber that we consider them real Craftsman. We would not hesitate to use them on any of our projects.”
David Ratzlaff, HR Pacific, Golden, BC
"I have had the opportunity to work with the Shamrock crew on a couple of difficult projects. The work ethic and extra effort to safety and doing a great job was a real bonus on the projects. I look forward to working with Shamrock Mountain Building Ltd. in the future. Good job boys! Thanks again."

"I have known the guys at Shamrock for 9 years now and have had the pleasure of working with them for the last 8. In this time my experiences have been nothing but positive. Their attention to detail is second to none and their willingness to go the extra yard is always apparent. Commitment to excellence is high on their list of priorities and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any project, big or small. If they say they will get it done, they get it done, on time and to a standard not commonly encountered."
Paul Dixon, HR Pacific, Golden, BC
