Replacement of a rotting leaning fence

Cole took down the old leaning rotting fence and disposed of it. He then constructed a new fence with a new gate. He did an outstanding professional job even in the pouring rain and coping with unusually solid fence post foundations which required extra jackhammering! The fence looks great and I'm sure it will stand the test of time. Very pleased with his work and would recommend him to anyone else looking to replace or repair a fence.

Amazing fence, arbor, outdoor transformation!

I cant say enough amazing things about Cole. We hired him to rebuild a property fence, which turned into fencing in our whole yard, building an arbor, and building a gate on the west side of our property as well. Cole was fast, neat, respectful, quiet, and his craftsmanship top notch. His work completely transformed our home and our lives. I really cant say enough great things about Cole. His work will give us many years of enjoyment and it was a pleasure having him here doing all of our projects. Cole will always be our go to! Thank you sir!!

Wow! That is a very generous review! Thank you SO MUCH! I have to tell you that it was an incredible adventure; from the rough fence post holes along the lines, to the heavy joist and beam work, up and down the ladder for the Arbor , to the detailed spacing of the boards, to the very fine clearances of the gate latches. A great challenge that tested many of my skill sets. It was fun to even have my wife come over for some "oversight" of the details. She is really good at that.
Most of all, for me, it was always so great to have some moments to visit with you and talk about things in general. I very much appreciate your approach to life. Thank you again. I look forward to finishing the final stages.

Fence, gate and stairs replacement

Our old fence finally decided to blow down, so it was time to get a replacement.

We replaced our fence, attached gate and small stairs. Everything was done in a fast and the worker was very professional.

We would definitely recommend Cole to our friends and any future work.

A great craftsman - and very friendly

I came back to Cole after 10 years - and he remembered me! He is such a friendly person and an excellent craftsman. He did exactly as promised, on time and the result is perfect. It's always nice to know that the person you meet for an estimate is the person who will do the work. Cole cares a lot about his clients and the quality of his work. Absolutely recommend.

Highly Recommended!

Cole came highly recommended by a friend and he didn’t disappoint! Cole built about 85’ of new fence for us to match the custom fence on the other side of our property. He respected our yard and more importantly our neighbour’s flower beds that sit adjacent to the property line. The quality of his work was top notch! Thank you Cole SK

Fence repair

We asked Cole to repair a few slats in our fence which had become loose
due to rotting wood, hoping to extend its life by a couple of years. He assessed the damage and proposed a solution which we agreed with. The work was done in a very professional manner and the results are excellent - exactly as hoped for. All communication was timely and courteous. We will be hiring him again for all future fence requirements.

Don't look anywhere else!

Can't recommend Cole enough. We were in need of a new fence, two gates and some exterior stairs and Cole delivered. We'll definitely work with him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Quality work all round.

This must be "J". Thanks for the great review!
I was a pleasure visiting with you and creating these projects for you. Of course let me know if the gates need any further adjustments as they nestle into place.
Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

Best man for the job

I have a large red cedar deck that needed some very detailed love and care . The deck had some rot and needed expert hands to remove and replace boards . Cole was patient and thorough in addressing the problem . We couldn’t have been happier with his work. Highly recommend him . You won’t be sorry.

Cedar Fence Gate Replacement

Cole took a look at my cedar gate situation in North Vancouver and spent significant time discussing options for a replacement. I was very impressed with his expertise, his attention to detail and his Customer approach. Much to my surprise, in only a few days he constructed and installed the new cedar gate. The result far exceeded my expectations in construction and workmanship. When I have carpentry needs in the future, my first call will be to Cole. Highly recommended.
