Clint did a fast, and excellent repair of my broken mobile home skirting, the track slots, and the caved-in logs that held it all in place. He even went so far as to do some extra work free of charge, with was much appreciated. Shawn & Clint are a great team, and I highly recommend this local company. Thanks guys!

Shawn, Clint & Justin worked (and sweated!!) so hard to make our house more homey and beautiful. Their attention to detail is OUTSTANDING, as well as their superior problem-solving skills in dealing with an un-level and wonky old house which has suffered at the hands of all its owners, even ours! We recommend them without hesitation. And, we can’t wait until we can benefit from their expertise again!

I have used this company twice in the past 6 months: a) October 2021 for a complete subfloor replacement and rehabilitation in a modular home and installation of new laminate flooring: and b) March 2022 for a bedroom renovation: custom designed closet and new flooring I am so pleased with the professionalism and knowledge the owner brings to the job site. He starts at the proposal / quote stage and continues to clean up and departure.

I hired Shawn to redo the front porch. From beginning to end I have nothing but good things to say. He was helpful, knowledgeable, professional and has excellent craftmanship and he is just an all around really nice guy. He is easy to get a hold of and really responsive unlike a lot of the contractors in the Okanagan. I am so extremely happy with the job that he did on my porch. I will definately be using him again. I highly recommend Shawn to everyone.
