Porch steps rebuild

Blair recently rebuilt our front steps and we're very pleased with his craftsmanship. He was extremely skilled, organized, efficient and a real pleasure to deal with, finishing the job quickly and on budget. We wanted to modify the existing steps somewhat to suit our needs and he came up with a solution that also looks great. We recommend Blair without hesitation.

Freshen up

Blair did some small carpentry projects around the house such as installing closet doors, including trim, and creating a bulkhead in our basement to improve the appearance of a tricky area.
Blair’s carpentry work was top quality. He was very careful and thorough in his prep and clean up of the work areas.
Blair was terrific to work with. Pleasant to deal with, punctual, responsive and creative in problem solving.
I would not hesitate to work with him again.

Rear Fence Rebuild

This was our second project with Blair. We previously hired him to rebuild and enclose our front porch. He did such a nice job last time that we recommended him to our friends who hired him to do projects of their own. Blair has just rebuilt our old rear fence and as always he has done a great job! We're always very happy with his work. This definiltey won't be our last project with Blair!

Front Addition

We're very happy to have found Blair! We needed someone to completely rebuild and enclose our old front front porch and Blair has done just that, exceedeing all of our expectations! We definitely echo the sentiments of past reviewers about how Blair is an expert craftsman that does beautiful work, is extremely punctual, trustworthy, reliable, amiable and easy to collaborate with! He took our architect's drawings along with our input and his own expert input and made our front addition come to life! His crew and occasional subcontractors, like electricians, were also terrific. From structural work and framing, doors and windows, drywall, siding, electrical, tile, custom-built stairs and railings, and finish carpentry, Blair handled it all giving us a new addition to our house that is as beautiful as it is functional while passing all mandated city inspections with zero issues. From the very beginning, Blair’s attention to detail is obvious beginning with his 4 page typed quote listing every detail of the work he would do, materials he would use, along with any caveats for unknowns and a very fair price. He did everything he said he would do and then some, exactly on time and on budget to the penny. Any extra details that came up later that weren't part of our original agreement or were changes I wanted to make were discussed before any work went ahead and charged at a very reasonable price, or in some cases no extra charge if the cost of material and labour were in line with the original plan. Zero headaches, zero surprises, excellent workmanship and lots of compliments on my new enclosed porch. Exactly what you want when undergoing an addition project. I would hire Blair again in a heartbeat for future projects!

Excellent indoor and outdoor carpentry and construction

We hired Blair on a friend's recommendation with a few projects in mind and he not only helped us to refine our vision into something practical and affordable but also did a beautiful job executing the work - so much so that we brought him back to do more. He was great at listening to what we wanted and offering helpful suggestions. The projects included tearing down an old-built-in wardrobe and replacing it with a custom-built desk to create a study nook in our upstairs hallway; using an economical mixture of Ikea and custom carpentry to create a built-in wardrobe in our bedroom; replacing backyard fences; building a deck and outdoor stairs; and designing and building a unique backyard shed to house several canoes, kayaks and paddleboards along with gardening tools. Blair is great to work with. He has a positive and relaxed attitude and a great work ethic. We would highly recommend him and hire him again.

Company Response

It was a pleasure working for Tim & Tory! I especially enjoyed creating a unique structure for their canoes and kayaks. This kind of custom work really turns a backyard into a very functional and enjoyable space. Great people to work with, and gratifying to see the end result.

Backyard front fence and gate

Blair worked with us on a specific design of new fence, provided good insight in how it needs to be done and then delivered an excellent product at the end. On time and on money. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for quality and craftsmanship.

Backyard Fence and Deck

Blair has completed several interior projects for us and this was the first exterior one: a fence and multi-leveled deck. Our backyard is sloped so we wanted a design that would provide more usable living space than our previous patio. Blair considered and included our requests and created a deck that maximized the space well, using three levels. He also rebuilt the fence on one side using a horizontal pattern, with heights to match the deck levels. This project, as with all previous ones, was competed well within his proposed timeline (even considering this rainy summer weather!), on budget and always with respectful, neat and professional care to neighbour's yards. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Blair's work and look forward to working with him again!

Front steps construction

It was a pleasure having Blair replace the wooden front steps to our home in June 2014. He arrived right on-time for the quotation visit and provided a reasonable estimate along with advice on the best solution while still keeping our wishes at the forefront. The construction date was actually moved ahead from the original schedule, the work was performed within the exact estimated time frame, Blair gave us advice on timelines for future priming/painting, and we're thrilled with the results. I'd recommend Blair any time with no hesitation!
