“In the initial meeting to discuss the construction of the new building, Dave took the time to explain the various aspects of the construction process. Once work began, I appreciated being kept in the loop daily as to the scheduling and the work to be completed each day. This company does pride themselves in true customer service at all times. I am very pleased with the finished product, the surrounding area and have received many compliments from my neighbors.I would highly recommend DeVries Construction and Renovation to anyone contemplating building or renovating in the near future.”

“The work Dave and his team did is definitely one of high caliber and professionalism. From start to finish, Dave will walk you through the entire process, explicitly state the work on paper, get it done right and on time, and he will actually back up the work as contracted.

"Devries Construction did a huge job for us. They redid the exterior of the house, removed the chimney, adjusted the roof for better air circulation, eaves, added a new porch with cedar finishing. The add-on included a kitchen, mudroom and powder room. Dave worked to fulfill my vision for my 'new' house and I couldn't be more pleased with how it all turned out. They were professional, communicated about each stage of construction, worked through problems in a fair and measured approach. Really pleased with the Devries team."
Debra Fehr - Full Home Development/Addition
"The project started with a new kitchen island and exhaust in our 1928 home and ended being a complete kitchen reno as well as a basement bathroom reno. We found Dave on BBB and his rating of A+ is well deserved. He took us step by step through the process so there were no surprises cost or otherwise. His crew was courteous and looked after our home well, taking care to seal and cover floor and doorways and cleaning up after each day. Dave took great pride in his work and went the extra mile to look after things we may have missed. He answered all our questions and concerns quickly and with calm clarity, ensuring we were at peace. I can't recommend this company more highly. They will be on speed dial for all future renovations!"

"My project with Dave DeVries of DeVries Construction and Renovation (DCR) was to add a one-bedroom basement suite in my smaller 1941 bungalow. This was done under Manitoba Housing’s Secondary Suite Program. I had three quotes and I went with DCR because of the price and sound references. The design was already done professionally and it was then handed off to Dave. Dave was thoroughly familiar with the City of Winnipeg’s permit system and took the project through all the required permits. Dave is a gifted communicator and brings extensive knowledge to the project. As his team worked through the renovation, Dave made a few changes to the design that were a definite plus. He was able to move plumbing and then walls to give more space to the kitchen and bathroom. He came up with a nice closet space for the entrance that was not in the original design. There were two levels to the existing concrete floor and, instead of raising the lower one as was spelled out in the design, Dave realized he could lower the higher one to gain 2 – 3” ceiling height in the kitchen and dining area. The bathroom shower had to go under a bulkhead so we went with a custom-made shower to gain some inches in height. The tile work is beautiful. I was not experienced with choice of materials and colours and went entirely with Dave’s recommendations. The result met my best expectations. I really appreciated the attention to detail because I wanted this to be a first-class suite for my prospective tenant. Because the job was done so well, I had seven written tenant applications and three on my short list, any one of which I would have been delighted to choose. Dave continues to follow up on any deficiencies that crop up. I highly recommend Dave and his crew at DCR."

"We were really nervous planning our first reno (kitchen). We had a budget and really needed to stay on budget or very close too. Dave was able to make our dream come true. We had heard of many renos that go wrong so we had a lot apprehension. Dave and his team from day 1 put this apprehension to rest! These guys are the best! Very professional, knowledgeable and just a great bunch to have in your home. This reno came in on time and on budget. The end result is a beautiful kitchen that exceeded my expectations. Dave was with us every step of the way, keeping us informed of every step. Best decision we have ever made was hiring Devries Construction and Renovation, I highly recommend!
