Receiving positive feedback is one of the most rewarding aspects of San Telmo Design. Please read the following testemonials to hear what kind of experience clients have had with Leandro.


“I am so lucky to have been referred to Leandro by my realtor. Prior to meeting him, I had 5 companies come to my house for estimates. My family and I were so impressed by his professionalism and his portfolio that I hired him on the spot. When you see his work, his creativity and attention to detail are evident. Hardwood flooring is not only his trade, but his craft, that was passed down to him from his father. My newly refinished floors transformed the look of my home and were a major factor in the fast sale of my home.”

A couple of years ago our 1950’s house had a much needed facelift.  The floors on much of the main floor were original; being scratched, stained, and full of nail holes they were in need of much more than a little care.  In addition to the old floor, new floor had to be laid in several highly visible areas.  Leandro was very efficient, professional and friendly from start to finish!  He was pleasant to have around and felt safe having him in our home.  Nothing was too much for him to handle and he was always quick to give advise on a recommended way forward.  He was always on time, on budget, and the result exceeded my expectations.  We couldn’t have imagined them looking this good.  I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again or recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy company that delivers the goods.  I have recommended Leandro to family, I have so much faith in him!

We are cautious consumers when looking for contractors to do the many renovations we have undertaken with several different homes. We have unfortunately had the misfortune to have hired some less than acceptable contractors or companies and have learned to try and sift through the good and the bad.

My initial conversation with Leandro left me with a “good feeling” as he seemed knowlegable and confident. Unlike some other flooring contractors he talked me out of a major process because it would not be a good application for my situation where as other companies tried to push for the “big job”. My research confirmed that his recomendations were correct and his honesty was refreshing and confirmed that his integrity and knowledge qualified him to be the best candidate.

He is an honest straight forward dependable craftsman who takes pride in his work. 

He is available to take the time to answer all questions and is dependable for being on the job when promised and is very respectful of your home and family.

We expect quality work from any contractor that we hire and I fully endorse Leandro as a very reputable and capable individual and have no qualms about recommending him.

I’m an interior designer in Calgary who deals with higher end residential clients.  Leandro Mandalari has worked on 4 projects with me.  He came to me, very highly recommended, by a developer.  I’ve relied on him for honest input on the projects – both on the potential, as well as the limitations, of floor refinishing.  He’s able to assess the situation and give a very clear direction to take.  The outcome has always been extremely pleasing!  He is honest, trust-worthy, dependable and a joy to work with.  In an industry that is built on building alliances with trades, Leandro is someone that is on “speed dial”.
