My qualifications and expertise are very broad due to the 25 years of diversified and 'Hands on the tools' experience that I have in
the Residential/Commercial Construction & Renovation industry. My founding facets as a Framing carpenter building custom homes which led to foreman
positions for many years before working for an exterior finishing company, Interior finishing business and a few renovation & restoration companies, until one day it was time to start my own business, Due West Carpentry & Renovations. I came up with the name 'Due West' because of my passion for travelling the ocean and mountains of the West Coast and its nautical and navigational reference refers to the direction of Canada that we live in, and in this case Renovating, Remodelling and Construction which has a whole different flavour here, Due West of all other Provinces.
It would seem everybody is a pseudo renovation expert these days with reality renovation TV and Google being used as a training manual by some, but unfortunately not everyone can afford a behind the scenes production crew, and the reality is that it does require a certain skill set, the right training, lots of experience and talent to be good in this field. A successful and outstanding home improvement project will require the customer to make the best possible desicions and choices from the begining to the end of the project. Those decisions are based on the information and guidance that is provided to you by the company you hire, so that you as the consumer have the confidence in your selections and the direction and outcome of your project.
You can see from my references and portfolio that this 'B.C. born builder' has spent many long hard hours in this field building my skills, knowledge and business practices not only as a master carpenter but as a top-notch renovation contractor and project manager in order to be one of the best in my business. This is reflected in every project that we undertake, and i speak for all of our employees, subtrades, suppliers and business associates that will be working with you to make your project a stunning success.
