ABOUT

Renovation Should Be A Rewarding Experience

We maintain great relationships with our clients and seek to enhance their lives through our mutual collaboration. The secret to our success is based on choices. We choose to work with quality trades people who have a proven eye for detail. They are tried and tested in not only their ability to perform their work at the highest level but also in their ability to relate to the caliber of clientele we attract. We build more than just new spaces, we build relationships, one happy client at a time. 

When the company started a dozen years ago, we specialized in unique lofts and living spaces but have since graduated to full-house renovation as well as new construction. We are also currently renovating nightclubs and bars, restaurants and cafes, sound studios and other small to mid-size commercial projects. A few noteworthy items:

 

  • Our estimates with a not-to-exceed budget are super-detailed, easy to read and are just the first step of our transparent financial package. Download a free sample.
  • We value open and honest communication, always providing complete confidentiality. We're your contractor with a conscience.
  • Our work is guaranteed for one year (craftsmanship and installation).
  • Our diligent crew shows up on time, knowledgeable, equipped and eager to do their best work for you. They leave your place livable at the end of each day and at the end of the job, leave you amazed at what they’ve accomplished.
  • And yes, we do accept Mastercard and Visa.

SHAYNE LETFORD
General Manager

Shayne500The ability to manage a construction project from concept to completion takes a very specific set of skills.

He is responsible for maintaining quality control standards and contributes job cost data for our detailed estimates.

Besides managing our crew, he also schedules and oversees sub-trades and submits and tracks building permits. After attending the carpentry program at BCIT for 3 years, Shayne ran his own company for 5 years, primarily building high-end homes in the British Properties of West Vancouver. He has over 11 years of experience and prides himself on the knowledge that he can capably construct a house from beginning to end. He’s enjoying the challenge of working on commercial projects at Refine & Design and is always striving for more efficient ways of getting the job done.
