Choosing to work with professional contractors in Vancouver is a smart choice.

  • Project Management: Managing the various sub-trades and knowing when to bring them into the project will save time and money.
  • Trade Connections: Having access to skilled workers can be a challenge as trades in Metro Vancouver are in such high demand. Professional builders/renovators/designers come with established working relationships with the trades and sub-trades. Remember, plumbing, electrical and gas upgrades all require licensed contractors by law and are not for the DIY.
  • Contractor Rates: your professional builder, renovator, or designer will have access to contractor rates, often being able to pass on savings to you.
  • Building Permits: Every municipality has building permits that must be adhered too. More than just the cost of the permit, knowing the implications of the regulations will help to define the real cost of home building/renovation project. Keep in mind that someone looking to buy your house in the future may ask about the renovation work and want verification that the work was done to code.
  • Experienced Eye: Renovating an existing structure will inevitably turn up surprises. An experienced builder/contractor/renovator/designer will bring solutions to these inevitable challenges.

Remember, successfully custom-built homes and renovations take time, resources, and expertise to achieve the desired outcome while ensuring today’s building codes are met.

Your home is one of the largest investments you will ever make. Protect yourself by working with experienced, local contractors in Vancouver that you can trust.
