Good morning Chelsea

Thank you for your note and for making the changes. The granite looks great and I just want to tell you how exceptional you and the installers are. From the minute I stepped into the showroom your service has been awesome. The installers were amazing - quick and they worked so we'll together and they cleaned! (Try to talk them into cleaning the rest of my house)

I hope you will let your management know how pleased I am.

Thank you for everything

Happy new year!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas break.

As for the counters... They are AMAZING!

I will admit...it was a bit of a rough go when the first pieces for the island didn't fit and had kind of a harsh seam, but the option to do the island in one piece solved all of that and we couldn't be happier. In hind sight, perhaps we should have discussed the option of doing it in one piece from the beginning... but thankfully it all worked out in the end.

When the first attempt at the island didn't work, we were pretty concerned with Christmas fast approaching, but we want to commend the production and installation teams at Icon for getting the single stone for the island cut, finished and installed in time for the holiday season for us. We know that could not have been easy and the effort was greatly appreciated!

Elaine was at the house when the Installation team was doing their work and she was very impressed with their work. The attention to detail was really outstanding. In fact, it was as if they were putting this stone in their own homes and wanted it to be perfect. Their efforts were well worth it.

We had the opportunity to have guests over to the house over Christmas, and the stone was the centrepiece of our celebrations, just as we expected. We had many comments on the beauty of the stone so it was obvioulsy a wonderful choice!

I got the plumbing done for the new sink (just in time!). We LOVE the big sink!! Having the deep sink and the island on one level has made the kitchen so much more functional. Best choice we ever made!!

The back splash is my next project to finish off the transformation. We will certainly send you a picture once it is all done and we will certainly be back to see you when we are ready to do the bathrooms!!

Please feel free to share our comments with members of the Icon team, managers, owners., etc... because our satisfaction rating is off the charts!

With all our thanks,

Clint & Elaine Lovell

It has been 2 weeks since the install of our granite and we absolutely love it! We wanted to say "Thank You" for all your efforts.

Coming to our home and sharing your expertise was a major plus for us. You were able to see our cabinets and the style of our home and help us with some very important decisions.

You addressed our concerns with the seams; Brad was so impressed with the installers; Guillaume and Danny. They did a fantastic job.

The whole experience was a very positive one and we would recommend Icon to anyone of our friends.

Thank you again; you were wonderful to work with!

Hi Sophie my name is Mark Heide, I had an install today done by Kevin. ( I asked him for his supervisor's e-mail)

I just wanted to provide you with some positive feedback in regards to their work. Both were very polite and diligent at what they did. I am also a tradesman and appreciate good work. They provided this to a high standard.

If you could forward this to TJ (whom I met, but don't have his e- mail) I would appreciate it.

Thanks again, so much, for all of your work on this. Great customer service experience, I must say.

Hi Kourosh!

I've been meaning to email about this, my apologies for the delay. Icon did in fact fix the counter, it looks good as new. Not only were the technicians just wonderful, they left me some tools (well, chemicals) so that I can help maintain the counter myself.

Everything went great, and I am very impressed with both Vetrazzo, and Icon.

Thanks again, so much, for all of your work on this. Great customer service experience, I must say.

Subject: Thank you all so very much

I just came from seeing my countertops being installed and although I had prepared myself that they may not come up to my expectations, they have far surpassed what I was hoping they would look like.

Thank you to all who were involved from the person who assisted the day we walked into the show room, to those who cut the countertops to the fellow who did the template, to the installers, and especially to Susanna and Heather for your patience with my questions and waiting for the sinks to arrive.

Everything went great, and I am very impressed with both Vetrazzo, and Icon.

Your level of service is wonderful and I would highly recommend Icon to anyone.

Thank you again, and Very Merry Christmas,

Dear Diana,

It has been a pleasure working with you and Andy Critchell.

We appreciate your patience in dealing with our somewhat unique position. No builder per se, but two very interested engineers. Our choosy ways certainly were rewarded by your team of professionals and hats off to Tito especially on the install side!

And thanks to Jean also for taking a special interest in the project that Saturday when the island was installed.

Great work!

Hello TJ,

Thank-you for asking Ruben to come by and fix the seam in the counter top. Just as before, he did an excellent job. I am grateful to ICON for fixing that for us.

Ever since we redid the kitchen and had the counter top put in, it has been the feature of our kitchen. I get countless compliments on it and everyone wants to know what type of surface it is and where did we get it from. I have never had any hesitation in letting our friends know and will be sure to continue to recommend ICON for their product and their service.

Thanks again,

Hi Marie -

I wanted to pass complements and thanks on to you, your colleagues & ICON for the customer service thus far. Please advance this note to management / owners as I’d like them to receive the feedback directly:

1. You provided excellent service on my initial visit – recommendations & setting me up with samples. You also were very helpful in viewing the slab that was brought in from the yard in my absence, characterizing the colours and confirming it to be worth my while to come back.

2. Gwen made time to show me a slab in the back on an impromptu basis one day when I popped in without an appointment – the storefront and shop were both very busy, but I was accommodated.

3. Dan’s suggestions yesterday were extremely helpful. As you know, I am replacing granite on my kitchen island – this product is 3/4” thick & will remain on the countertops in that room. The original install used a stacking on the perimeter to provide a 1.5” finished edge. With the change in standard to 1.25” thickness, my island would now have been slightly lighter than the rest of the room (undesired), and stacking two had disadvantages too. Dan provided excellent service and suggestions and came up with them miter edge solution and profile which I will provide a finish/look even better than I’d hoped for.

Thank you for all your help Marie – if there is anything else needed from me, please contact me. Otherwise I will look forward to a call from your planning team to schedule the install.

Cheers -

Subject: Vanity

Hello Gwen,

The vanity looks great, however there is a long way to go before the room is finished. Once everything is in place I think that the vanity will really set off the rest of the space. The work your installers did was first-rate. I will send you some high quality photos of the room and vanity once it is completed.

Thanks again

Subject: Kitchen Granite

Hi Amy;

We're just in the final stages of our kitchen renovation and wanted to take a moment to pass on a few accolades to you and all the staff at Icon Stone and Tile.

Melanie and I have been completely impressed with every single facet of our interaction with you.

Right from the first moment we spoke to you on the phone and then walked into your showroom, we have been treated with the utmost in professionalism and courteous service. You were able to lead us through the different ideas we had for countertops and show us the varying samples.

hen you had a grasp of what we were after, your product knowledge was impeccable as you took us directly to the atrium to present a slab of granite that you had in mind for our project. It was an immediate winner and you made the necessary arrangements to hold it for us.

>From that moment on, our entire experience with you personally, and the the rest of the staff has been flawless.

>From Dan coming as scheduled to do the template, to Susanna booking the install as we got more excited, to the two first-class installers, we have had a totally professional experience and will continue to tell all who see our new kitchen how much you mean to us.

Not many of our friends were aware of Matrix Motion leather, but they certainly are now. Thanks to all of you.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to the entire crew at Icon and we can't wait to showcase our new kitchen to you, over a glass of wine.

P.S. Pictures to follow when completed
