Who are we?
We’re Nick and Rita, founders of Blom Contracting Inc. We’re passionate about the wellbeing of people, the environment and each and every job we take on. Our mission is to ensure that we do our part to reduce the impact our renovations have on the environment and provide our clients with cost effective, energy efficient, and healthy building alternatives. We’re committed to being a positive influence in green renovations with our clients and the community.
Our projects range from small residential renos—to transforming entire homes—to commercial buildouts. We have amazing clients, a stellar team, and work with the best subtrades in the area. We’ve worked hard to earn the reputation for quality workmanship and unparalleled service and take pride in every project we complete.
What’s in a Name?
Why the name Blom, you ask? The Blom name is a tribute to Nick’s grandfather, my dad, Nicholas Blom, who passed away in 2008. Nick knew that the honesty, integrity, respect for people, and hard work ethic that his grandfather exhibited throughout his life were the same founding values Blom Contracting was to be built on, and continues to stand on today. There was no question that the company name would take on his grandfathers. Grandpa would be proud.
Not only do we transform spaces, but we do our part to transform lives as well. Blom Contracting believes in giving back and providing awareness to charities, associations and rare diseases in need. We are currently involved with and support Habitat for Humanity, The Family Violence Project, Kids Country Club, Kidsability, Cystic Fibrosis and The PMD Foundation.
We have joined forces with Forest Ontario to plant trees throughout Ontario. As an environmentally-minded contractor we have made the commitment to donate tree plantings as gifts for every client whose renovation/build we undertake.
We recognize that even environmentally sensitive building has an impact on the environment. Participating in tree planting projects is one important way we can help restore the quality of the natural environment and help combat climate change.
We’ve chosen Bullfrog Power at our location in Cambridge to offset our electricity use with green energy. Bullfrog ensures that for every kWh of electricity we use, a kWh from a pollution-free, renewable source is put on the grid on our behalf. By making this simple choice we are fighting climate change and air pollution and helping green energy projects across Canada.
