After shopping around and receiving three different quotes to build a deck off of our kitchen and dining room we decided to go with Richard of Domicile Construction. The deck was to go straight off of our main living area and descend a few steps to our backyard grass. Richard's quote was very reasonable, and he gave us confidence that he knew what we were hoping for. He definitely delivered and then some! The deck looks great. It was built on budget, and his attention to detail was above expectations. We were really happy with how he finished the edges (better than plan), and he was very receptive to feedback, or more specifically, one "change of mind". He worked alone on this project so it took a bit longer than our other quotes, but we weren't in a rush so that was fine. Overall we were very happy with his work and would definitely recommend him to others. ”

We needed to remodel our shower/tub area of the master bathroom. The bathtub needed to be replaced with an easy step in for ease of entry. Safety bars also were added. We are very happy with Richard's work. Rich was punctual, professional and the work was competed on time and on budget.”

Richard James has completed several renovation projects at our house and we have been impressed by his workmanship, attention to detail, timeliness and budget conscious suggestions.

Richard is an extremely professional, dedicated and honest contractor. He oversaw a large renovation project on our 1910s Vancouver home, involving major electrical and plumbing work, installing a new bathroom and kitchen, painting, floors and other assorted work. He is a very hands-on contractor but was also able to draw on a wide range of professional trades people to meet our needs. We particularly appreciated Richard’s ability to translate our ideas about the reno into practice, his very helpful but unobtrusive suggestions along the way, and above all his ability to get the work done on schedule and to a high degree of quality."
