When choosing a team for our major home rebuild, we were very careful to find a contractor who shared our own values and desires for exceptional workmanship. HBC’s team greatly exceeded our own high expectations in all regards. David and his team were able to transform a number of unique ideas for our home into a spectacular reality. They not only helped us envision interesting features, but they also found ways to lower the cost, sourced beautiful materials and then ensured careful construction and craftsmanship. This care and respect extended beyond HBC’s direct team and included their various trades who clearly held HBC in high regard and were obsessed about delivering quality. For us the end result was simply incredible and we can’t recommend David and HBC enough
David you should patent whatever you eat for breakfast. You are endlessly cheerful and patient with clients ranging from gnats to giants!
As our family grew older, our needs changed and what we wanted out of our house changed with it. The decision was to move or renovate and given the hot real estate market and lack of affordable and suitable options, renovate it was. Our house was built in 1964 with separate kitchen and dining areas and a living room that was rarely used. Dave and Rick hatched a vision to open up the space and Dave took the time to draw up a functional plan and even created a 3-dimensional model of the house including the proposed new covered deck area.
After a review of quotes for two different renovation options, we decided upon a plan. Work began quickly and we were immediately impressed with the professionalism, work ethic and talent. It was obvious from the outset we were getting quality workmanship in all facets of this renovation.
Six months later we were complete. Walls were removed, structural beams installed above the ceiling and we had a brand new open plan kitchen and living area, with features we didn’t know existed, like an under-counter microwave. Hardwood floors had been installed to replace ceramic tile and expertly matched to the existing floors; the rear wall and windows were removed and quality Eclipse doors installed in their place; exceptional quality wood cabinets were built to suit; a beautiful glass and cedar 300 bottle capacity wine storage enclosure was designed and built; a new fireplace insert was installed and tiled floor-to-ceiling feature constructed; a farmhouse sink and Caesarstone countertops were added (a portion of the latter re-cut and re-installed after Dave himself felt it wasn’t quite right the first time).
Every sub trade Dave used was professional, on time and did quality work. Dave made sure all trades got on the job when the time was right, so delays were rare and usually on our account. Despite an extensive reno, we only lost the use of our kitchen for a couple of weeks, with temporary wood counters and a plumbed sink installed to ensure we could still function without having to spend the time and money to relocate. We have now been in our renovated home for a few months and are ecstatic with the results. We are already thinking about “Phase 2” and will not hesitate to use Hughes Bros.
“You know this but I’m going to say it anyway… still crazy about the house and the team that built it after all these years. Ten years today I moved in! Can you believe it!”
Just completed a major condo renovation with Hughes Brothers Construction. David and crew sure know what they are doing both professional and pleasant. To allow me a sense of true dimension, David sketched out the whole project. It was beyond the call of duty. Neighbours in our building commented on how pleasant they were and how immaculate they kept the common area. There is no question… I highly recommend Hughes Brothers Construction for your renovation or new construction.
Just wanted to let you know we get nothing but rave reviews on our condo, and since Hughes Brothers was such an important part of this, it’s important to send kudos your way!
Hughes Brothers Construction recently completed a major restoration of our mid-century west coast post & beamhome. From start to finish, their project management was superb, and the entire HBC team deserves high praise for their thoughtfulness, professionalism, comprehensive knowledge, and unwavering attention to detail. They clearly love what they do and are 100% committed to client satisfaction. This is an organization with high integrity that has our complete confidence and trust.
Last year a flood devastated our home, requiring a major rebuild of the structure and the grounds. Several friends referred us to Hughes Brothers Construction for their professionalism, quality and attention to detail. We are thrilled with the final product. In every respect, David and the HBC team really came through for us. Visitors regularly describe the new space as “fantastic”. We’re happy to take a call from anyone who wants to hear more about HBC and the wonderful crew.
Hughes Brothers took such pride in their amazing work building and finishing my home. We did encounter construction obstacles along the way (who doesn’t?) but they were keen to work creatively to surmount them, ultimately giving me a beautiful home and garden to be proud of and, very happy to call them good friends!”
David, thank you so much for taking on our West Vancouver project. We’re thrilled with the results so far and all the trades have been wonderful!!! We were at a friend’s house the other day where you had worked and you did a spectacular job for them as well. Thank you so much. We will be in touch regarding new kitchen soon.
