The first project that Sean did for us was in 2003 and involved building a 75’ long, 2.5’ high, lumber retaining wall in our backyard. 15+ years later, this wall is as solid as the day it was built though I have seen quite a few in my neighbourhood collapse over that period. Since then, Sean has built a 200’ long, industrial-strength cedar fence (with trellises), for us that looks as if it will still be standing after we are gone. And a two-level, hardwood deck that has transformed our rather grim-looking entryway into the back garden into a wide and welcoming porch that is now the envy of our friends and neighbours, and my husband’s favourite spot to have his morning coffee – even on cold and rainy days (it is partially covered).
We have had renovations done by other people too, but Sean has easily been the best. What has really impressed my husband and I about Sean is that, apart from his superb carpentry skills, he has a thorough knowledge of the local building regulations and bylaws applicable to the project. And he is not afraid to tell us if some of our ideas are really impractical, if not downright dumb – when you are spending a significant amount of money (and time and energy) on a renovation project, it is important to work with a contractor who has sound judgment and will therefore help you avoid making costly mistakes.
If you are looking for the cheapest contractor around for your projects, then Sean is not your guy – quality comes at a price. But if you want a reliable, skilled contractor who you can trust to guide you through the renovation process, who will ensure that your project does not fall foul of the local building codes (so you don’t end up in disputes with the local municipality and/or your neighbours!), and who will complete your project to a high standard, then I highly recommend Sean.
Sean was a pleasure to work with and goes one step beyond in customer service. He co-ordinated a job for us when we were out of the country and the project was seamless. His workmanship is top notch and he performs on time and within budget. We would use him again in a heartbeat.

Sean is dedicated to providing customers throughout the Lower Mainland with the highest standard of quality in workmanship and service - from extensive renovations and home additions to simple repair jobs and everything in between. Reliable, trustworthy, creative, honest - and work comes in on time. Huge recommendation!
I have had Sean undertake numerous projects for me including; laying hardwood floors, installing a bedroom closet, designing and creating a pergola for my patio and screens and a gate for my side yard.
Sean's work is of the highest quality and craftsmanship. His work is completed within the timeframe quoted and he ensures that the job site is left clean and tidy at the end of each day, and that no debris remains behind when the job is finished.
Not only is Sean a man of integrity, he is also highly professional, very creative and artistic. Sean is happy to offer ideas and designs for any project.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sean for any type of project or renovation and will continue to employ him to do work for me in the future.
Sean is a fabulous contractor, and for us a real gem. During the renovation he showed his industry knowledge, project management skills, an ability to keep all parties involved focused, encouraged us to dream big but stay within budget, and all with an open and friendly personality. We highly recommend Sean to family and friends who may be looking to find that dream home through a renovation. Sean certainly delivered on ours.

This is a reference letter for Sean Miletich. We had Sean do a tremendous amount of work at our house while renovating. The quality of his work was excellent. Sean has an unbelievable work ethic. His attention to detail and knowledge was amazing. He was able to communicate so well, making the experience so much more comforting. His people skills are exceptional, he is very trustworthy. His workmanship was superior. He delivered when he said he would and his timelines were always accurate.
There would be no hesitation for me in hiring Sean again for future work. There has never been a skilled professional that I’ve worked with that has been as pleasant, skilled, reliable and detail oriented as Sean. Please don’t hesitate to call me if you would like to ask any questions.
