Kerr Construction did an outstanding job on our very extensive and complicated renovation project. We have a circa 1925 Heritage home which we loved but were running out of space with only two bedrooms on the main floor, a very small study and inadequate storage or closet space. With Kerr's help, we were able to expand the back of our home, to construct a new deck, expand a previously tiny study, and most impressively, add a second floor addition with a master bedroom, dream bathroom, walk in closet and amazing views! There was also reno work in our basement, which was dark, dingy and had leaky old windows. Kerr's team showed amazing patience and effort to create the design plans and repeatedly revise after dealing with City Hall's ever changing staff and requirements. It was wonderful that we were able to continue living in our home during the reno, which resulted in significant cost savings. The finished project shows great craftsmanship and good attention to detail. We are pleased with our new space, it exceeded our expectations. The project manager and project coordinator were very easy to work with and dealt promptly and attentively with any concerns. I would strongly recommend Kerr to anyone who has an extensive renovation and who wants to create their "dream home".
We are extremely pleased with the quality of the work performed by the Kerr crew on our renovation. They were onsite, ready to work everyday from day one and were a pleasure to work with. It was clear to us that they considered the job incomplete until we were completely satisfied. As we were overseas for the first third of the project, communication was key for us and we weren't disappointed.
Kerr gives detailed info before the work begins with regard to what will be happening and when, they stick to that plan and clean up afterwards.
This is the best team I have ever worked with. I am most satisfied with Kerr’s prompt response and unflappable approach when there were problems, the can-do attitude, and the way ideas were offered to improve the design, the reliability of the staff to deliver as promised.
Kerr was very reliable and on time. They kept the worksite clean at the end of each day. Kerr was very knowledgeable, courteous, thoughtful and helpful with our questions and concerns. They made great suggestions while the job was in progress. I also thought all the trades people that came on site were very kind and respectful. The quality of the work was very good, they made sure they did it right no matter what. They were also sensitive to our budget and to any of the changes, no matter how small or big, they always did them!
We totally renovated our 100 year old Kitsilano Craftsman home. We had to fire the first contractor as he was charging by the hour and would never had got the job done. Then Kerr came to the rescue with the job not even half finished. We had a written contract, pay by the job, not the hour. They were on time and on budget. They were very respectful as we were living in the house during the renovations. We had weekly meetings to discuss the progress and any problems, or changes (which I wanted). You get what you pay for, my initial "bargain" contractor cost us a lot and the job was unacceptable. I am so happy with the results, Kerr won an award for the renovation and I could not be more pleased with the results. They gave me what I wanted when I was not even sure what I wanted. They listened to us and provided great results.
We are very happy with our new home office thanks to Kerr Construction. Their team, including project managers, trades and sub-trades, is professional, friendly and hardworking. From the initial project negotiations to the final completion we were completely satisfied. Thank you to Kerr for a job well done!
I loved the design. I found Nisha very easy to work with and she made recommendations that we liked and listened to my choices. Grant was awesome and VERY EFFICIENT and professional.
When you invite somebody in your home to do a renovation whether its big or small you want to make sure that you have somebody that you can trust, that you can work with and you can get along with because you know they are going to be in your space for quite a while and definitely we hit it off right away with Doug and Derek when they came in to meet with us but the other thing that really stood out from them was that we knew we can trust them because they followed up when they said that they were going to. Derek was always emailing back within a few minutes of us emailing him, even in the beginning when we were talking about quotes and everything so the fact that we knew we could rely and trust the company was a big deciding factor as well. Grant, who was here doing the day to day kind of millwork stuff was meticulous. I remember coming home from work a few times and seeing the level of detail he was going to to make what he was working on perfect and was awesome. Also, some painters that were brought in as well to work with them, all really friendly, conscientious, and so you didn’t feel weird that you’re leaving your home to these strangers for the day. They were meticulous about the clean up to. There was never any kind of a mess when we came home. Click here to watch the full video testimonial
Kerr Construction designed and built our bathroom, which we love. Fabulous and economical design choices, excellent quality work and the final result is fabulous. Well managed project meant that it met all time limitations and had minimal impact on our day to day lives.
Kerr did worked on several projects in on house. They replaced all the interior doors in our house, put in new hardware frames, crown moldings in the living room and dining room, did work on the interior windows in multiple rooms, widened three closets and did all the painting in the house. Outstanding work; absolutely beautiful. Steve, who did the carpentry, is fantastic. The painting crew is top notch. We are currently in the process of sitting down with someone else from Kerr to do our kitchen. They were fantastic, cleaning up thoroughly and left everything in our house looking marvelous.
Kerr Construction did repairs at the back of my house replacing some rotting cedar boards. They also built a shed addition giving me extra outdoor storage. The work is completely satisfactory and I would recommend Kerr Construction without any hesitation. Kerr Construction has also done renovation work for several of my neighbours.
Our strata complex hired Kerr Construction to replace skylights in our complex in June of this year (2013). Widely varying quotes from bidding contractors led the Strata Corporation to seek advice from the engineers who performed the Building Envelope Assessment some years ago. The information we received led to the selection of Kerr Construction / Absolute Roofing (their sister company) because of their combined experience which gave the Strata Corporation a greater level of assurance that the work was in competent hands.The project was carried out in a timely, professional and very courteous manner, and based on that positive experience the Strata Corporation intend to re-hire Kerr Construction/Absolute Roofing to replace more skylights next year.
We were thrilled with Kerr Construction's work on our bathroom renovation and various tasks around our house. We needed a number of small things done (new garden door, fixing drafty doors, installing a handrail) plus a whole bathroom renovation. Kerr managed to get the major reno and all our small tasks done, in a very timely way, reasonably close to budget, and with as little disruption to our household as possible. We were, and are, very happy with their work from beginning to end. Highly recommended
All the support posts for our carport were rotten and needed to be replaced. The estimator from Kerr came over and reviewed the project. We discussed my requirements: demolition, post replacement, cedar siding and plexiglass windows. The estimate was acceptable and I gave the project the go ahead. Shawn was the contractor for the project. He was very pleasant. We reviewed the job and discussed his suggestions, all of which were positive. Shawn raised some concerns after the demolition. This resulted in additional work and materials. I was very concerned about the overruns but after conversations with Shawn and Dave I agreed to proceed. The end result is excellent. I will use them for future projects and would recommend them to anyone reading this review.
My wife and I recently hired Kerr Construction to complete a reno of our living and dining room on our family home in North Vancouver. We used Kerr from beginning to end, starting with their architects Derek and Nisha for design and using them for the construction and finishing as well. We initially chose Kerr because they seemed established and capable and we really liked our impression of Derek who took the time to listen to what we were looking for even when we didn't really know. We feel more knowledgeable and experienced with renovating now and love the finished product. With our busy lives, it was nice to have the customer service and hand holding through the whole phase of the project. We would recommend them to anyone!
Kerr Construction has been consistent in quality work and good service. They kept us up to date, showed up on time, provided good time estimates, and completed work on time.
Doug Kerr of Kerr Construction helped us get into our dream home by building us a fabulous house a few years ago. We found Kerr Construction's service and workmanship to be exceptional and we would highly recommend them. Thank you, Kerr Construction!
I had mold in my bathroom, which I was quite concerned about. I called Kerr Construction to do an estimate on dealing with that and some other problems. They were very prompt about giving me an estimate. They were knowledgeable about the problems I was having and helped by giving different suggestions and options of how to handle it. Because they were so friendly and knowledgeable, I gave the job to them. The man who did the work showed up on time, was friendly, polite, professional and most important, very good at what he did. The job was completed on time, on budget and delivered everything they promised. I would not hesitate to recommend this company, and indeed have recommended it to friends and clients, and they in turn were happy and impressed with Kerr.
I appreciate the fine workmanship that Kerr provided on my home.
Kerr Construction did a major renovation on our home, we got exactly what we wanted with no corners cut. The job took a little longer than first planned but quality work takes time. The few small problems that arose were taken care of quickly. I would use Kerr Construction again.
We hired Kerr Construction to tear down our 25 year old North Van bungalow right down to the concrete foundations, and then rebuild it 50% larger as a Craftsman-style house. From demolition to move-in was only 6 months. Job was done cost-plus (our choice) and it was very well-managed. No headaches, no big problems, and our new home won a Georgie Award to boot when it was finished. We loved it!
Renovation of decks. The work was performed on time. I was always kept informed of their progress. The quality of the work was very good and overall I was impressed with the work which was done on our home.
Good Job overall! The job was for a reno of the bathroom. The job was done overall very well … the contractor was friendly and was able to answer any questions that I had about the work being done and was knowledgeable about costs associated with any changes that I wanted to have done!
This letter will confirm that Kerr Construction has done many jobs for the Justice Institute and we have found his work to be of first class quality. The jobs are price competitive and are completed quickly without any problems. We are happy to recommend Kerr Construction’s work.
As the owner of a forty-unit apartment building located at 230 Ash Street in New Westminster, we have recently replaced the entire building envelope. In this regard, I am happy to refer Kerr Construction as a very reliable, honest and knowledgeable company. The work was done in a timely manner with minimum inconvenience to our tenants. Now that Kerr Construction has repaired all the water damage and the building has been re-clad properly, I feel confident that our water problems have been resolved. I was very pleased with Doug Kerr’s efforts to keep the cost down without sacrificing the integrity of the work. Without hesitation I would recommend Kerr Construction for similar projects.
I would like to compliment you on getting the painting and alterations done on time and on schedule. As you know, we use this building as a showcase to promote the use of wood products on larger construction projects. We therefore need to keep it well maintained. I was pleased with both the quality of the work, and the fact that the work was done with a minimum of disturbance of the staff. Because of your performance, I would like to talk to you about taking care of future repairs and maintenance.
We would like to thank you for renovating the bathroom of our 60 year old house. The work was essentially completed within three weeks as promised and the project remained within the set budget. We had complete confidence in your people and felt comfortable to leave them alone working in our house while we were gone. We are also pleased with the quality and workmanship of your crew especially the framer, the gyp rock finisher and the tiler. We found it very easy to discuss any small issues (which always happen on a building site) with you and have them corrected. Based on this experience we have no hesitations to recommend you very highly to our friends. Thank you.
It is a pleasure to recommend Kerr Construction whom we have known through a major renovation contract last year. We are quite impressed with his high-quality workmanship, personal integrity, reliability and honesty. It has been a joy to deal with Kerr Construction and its subcontractors who, in our judgment, have done a marvelous job in renovating our home which we are enjoying immensely. We would be happy to provide additional testimonials on further request!
House Renovation. Good comprehensive work on project from initial discussion of concepts to architectural design to execution to lockup. Work was well done and has stood up well over time. Work was completed in timely manner agreed to in advance.
Kitchen Renovation. All trades were wonderful, cleaned up every day, on time, pleasant to have around, and the finished product was totally up to our expectations. Have seen other Kerr projects and all have been very well executed.
Fixing water damage at my house and doing some renovations. Great work - would recommend Kerr Construction came out and fixed a water leak I had in the front of my house. By using special equipment they found out where the problem was without having to rip everything out. I was so happy with the work I had them do some minor renovation work after that. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone for large or small jobs. Their employees were very nice and worked around my schedule. I think you will be very happy with them, I was!!!!
