Before we hired Joan, we had heard that she had a great design sense and was a very good project manager. When her tradespeople said they would show up, they would show up. We had a lot of confidence in her. If there ever was an issue, someone would be there the next day to fix it.
Joan brought samples, swatches, and catalogues to our home, and showed us different alternatives. She chose fabrics that we never would have picked. [Linda S]
I am writing to commend Joan Walker and The Curtain Call on several jobs well done at our home. We have used Joan in the past for drapes and window seats and more recently to help remodel our dining room. Joan and her staff are wonderful. The tradespeople she brings in are polite and keep the place clean. Joan was always on time and went above and beyond to accommodate our schedules, which meant meeting us on days off at times. Joan doesn’t hesitate to offer an opinion if she thinks she can do something better or show something that she thinks the client will like better. We thought we had picked out tile and when Joan saw it, she recognized I wasn’t thrilled with it. Within a day, she had twelve beautiful samples for me to choose from and ultimately we were thrilled with the result. We have never been disappointed with her work and the results. You won’t be either. [Julie M]
It is always a pleasure to work with The Curtain Call. This team of designers has proven to be professional, creative and excel in quality and service.
Joan has the knowledge and ability to executive any project. With complete confidence, The Curtain Call can transform your vision into reality. [Leanne Z]
Joan took the time to integrate the pieces that held a lot of meaning for us. This is probably the most significant aspect about this renovation. In all the years I’ve worked with Joan, I’ve never felt like there was another client more important than us.” [Kathy K]
The Curtain Call is wonderful to work with. The designer is knowledgable, dynamic and thoroughly professional. The whole team communicated very well with me throughout the design/install process. The biggest project (there were several) was a complete re-design and rebuild of a gas fireplace installation. I wouldn’t have known where to start if I had tried to undertake this project on my own. The designer found the mantle builders, the decorative tile, and even took me to the fireplace factory to see the inserts on display. All of the trades people who came in to do the work were on time, pleasant and took pride in their work. The work was done in different phases, and all parts came in at the quoted price. I will definitely employ The Curtain Call again for my next improvement project. [Cousinminski]
If I had to find all the trades and professionals we needed for our renovation, it would have been an incredible amount of work. Joan has great contacts. Our project was handled very efficiently and we love the result. [Marilyn B]
We found ourselves in need of remodelling our old bathroom with a tub and sliding glass door to a walk in shower and we needed it quickly. I called The Curtain Call and the owner Joan was quick to come to our rescue. She came over immediately and we sat down to discuss what can be done, how quickly it can be done and importantly, how much will it cost. I was impressed with Joan’s knowledge and her vision of what the bathroom will be like when finished and what we can do within our budget. She had a small space in which to work and it would have to be a custom build. She provided her expertise in tile and shower heads and what she felt we would need to make this shower accessible for everyone and still give it style. She gave me a timeline, what trades will come in, how long they will be there and what they will be doing while they are there. Everything Joan said would happen, did. I was very impressed she runs a well oiled machine. Her trades arrived when they were scheduled, worked hard all day, were very respectful and cleaned up before they left. Joan was in constant contact with me throughout the project and her organization skills and trades were exceptional. The walk in shower turned out spectacular and ON BUDGET! Within 10 days we were using the shower and have been very happy with the outcome. Everyone who sees it is impressed. I will tell you that rain shower is divine. We are one happy family. Thank you Curtain Call! [Tapsivad]
Joan was very creative and gave me a very inspired beautiful room that was better than I had imagined. She designed beautiful and luxurious pieces that are truly unique and functional. [Nadia K]
Three years ago, we decided to do a renovation to the house which we were moving into in South Surrey. A close friend of mine highly recommended Joan Walker and The Curtain Call. At first we were only considering painting and wanted some colour advice. But the little reno became a big one – we replaced the flooring, moved a fireplace, painted the whole interior, updated the kitchen, did tilework in the kitchen, master bathroom and laundry room, and more. Joan acted as our general contractor as well as the designer for the project. When the major work was completed, The Curtain Call made some stunning window treatments for several rooms, which added the “wow” factor to our home. Working with Joan was a real pleasure. She took care of all the details, while consulting us about our preferences. Living through a renovation can be stressful, but Joan and her team made it a positive experience and the end result is fabulous. We really enjoy our home – the decorating really suits us and our needs. Joan knew our budget and worked hard to give us a beautiful home, within a very reasonable timeline. In fact, we were so happy with our first reno that we called Joan recently and began phase two a few weeks ago. We are now finishing the basement and working on the outside. Once again, Joan has been in charge of the project, from the creativity to the logistics, and we are thrilled with the results. Joan is a true professional who stands behind her work and I have recommended her and The Curtain Call to friends. [Donna]
I live in South Surrey and learned about The Curtain Call through a special section in the local paper. Shortly after that I needed to desparately update some upholstered furniture and window treatments. I had met Joan socially and thought she would be someone that I would enjoy working with.Because her initial consultation was so thorough, she correctly suggested the colours, fabrics and accessories that would suit my taste and budget. The project was completed on time, on budget with no complications. She is now working on another project for me for our recreational property. I can’t imagine working with anyone else! [Barb]
From Drab to Dream Home In just four months, the Curtain Call team orchestrated a complete transformation of this dated domicile.
