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.

Fence

Time and cost estimates for building a new fence was fair. The quality of Cole's work exceeded my expectations and was superior to fences on other parts of my property. I would recommend Cole's services without hesitation.

Quick, quality craftmanship!

Cole was quick to respond when the fence that divided my property from a walking path was within days of falling over. He came strongly recommended and quickly removed and replaced my fencing with a new fence that will not be replaced in my lifetime. His job was detailed and price was very fair. Thanks again.

back yard gate repair

Cole was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Cole came and replaced our back yard gate which had been destroyed by the bear and did great quality of work. He also repaired our other yard gate free of charge.

Thank you for your generous review! Even though I kept an eye on my work, I also kept an eye looking over my shoulder for a disgruntled bear.
It was a pleasure working with you and look forward to seeing you again.
