Are you looking for a local home renovation expert?
As a general contracting business of 22+ years our primary focus is on kitchen and bathroom renovations and home renovation construction projects like sun decks, flooring installation and basement renovations. Company owner & general contractor Barry Thomson has a degree in engineering which follows a family tradition of engineering & construction. My grand father was a civil engineer, my father worked for the same construction firm for 35 years and I renovated 3 homes in Scotland before making the move across the water to BC where I started out by buying a run down house in a great neighbourhood, completely renovating it from top to bottom and sold it for a hansom profit.
One thing that has not changed in the 22+ years of completing home renovations and construction projects is that renovating homes is a passion to me and I consistently desire to always develop and hone my skills. Having spent significant time traveling and living abroad in Australia, Paris, French Alps, Netherlands, London & the Bay Area Barry has developed a very diverse taste in architecture and design.
We are featured in:
As members of the Squamish Chamber of Commerce and the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), we are strong believers in supporting local businesses wherever possible with the majority of our sub-trades being based in Squamish or Whistler. Inevitably due to availability many of our products & materials are purchased from suppliers in the Vancouver area and Vancouver Island.
We are Better Business Bureau accredited with an A+ rating. As required for contractors, we carry business licenses for each of the areas we operate in. We have full commercial liability insurance for $5million and WCB coverage for our employees, as do our licensed sub-trades. To date we have never had reason to make use of the insurance policy but it is there should the need ever arise!
We greatly respect that each and every home owner has a vast array of choices available when it comes to selecting a professional to execute their home renovation vision. Ultimately our goal is to ensure you are looked after and treated with respect at all times. We do not operate a “hard sell” philosophy as that is not how we like to be sold to ourselves.
We deliver on what we promise you
For us the single most important element is to deliver what we promised & do it in a manner which earns your trust as well as demonstrating our passion for what we do. We operate the same philosophy with our suppliers and sub-trades who we have carefully selected over the years based not only on their skills and quality products, but also because of their professional attitude.
Local based custom cabinet workshop
We have our own custom cabinet building shop based in Squamish and we service the entire Sea to Sky, North Vancouver and West Vancouver areas. Custom cabinets are no longer needed to be shipped in from the lower mainland. Our expert team of cabinet makers can design and build your cabinets to your specifications and design style.
Although we have a diverse background in home renovations as well as the occasional smaller commercial project, recently we have focused on bathroom & kitchen renovations in part to take advantage of our in-house cabinet building workshop based in Squamish. However it is very common for such projects to morph in to something else and we are happy to guide you if we are unable to do the work ourselves.
