We've had GL West do numerous jobs for us over the years. They are the best contractor we have ever used. I appreciate their honesty with what can and can't be done, their sticking to budgets and the amazing quality of their work. I wish every contractor was as honest and good at their trade as GL West.
George is one of those people that seems to find solutions. He is upfront and very knowledgeable about foreseeable problems. His cost estimates have consistently been accurate, certainly more than any other contractor we use. His staff does their job and leaves the place clean. They do everything from painting a place, to repairing doors, to fixing walls, to installing new countertops, to a fully renovated apartment and George is clearly capable of a lot more. He has done full renos including installing new granite countertops, new sinks, new backsplash, new bathroom tiles, new toilet, new flooring, new doors, new mouldings, new fixtures, etc. The professional quality of his work leaves a place feeling like a newly built high-end condo. His price is reasonable making him the best value contractor we have found in the lower mainland of his kind.
My company recently hired GL West Construction for a project and tight deadline, and we're happy we did. This was part of a community relations initiative to work with a local Boys and Girls Club, and every step of the way, George and his team were thoughtful, proactive with suggestions and very productive with the time spent creating a functional and updated kitchen for the Club.
The project was completed in less than a full work week and the results were fantastic. We stayed within budget, which allowed us to do more for the Club in terms of product donations and the hiring of professionals to complete the renovation, decorate and cook for the children at the Club. See the resulting outcome here:
I would hire GL West Construction again should the opportunity present itself.
I am very pleased with the construction work of GL West Construction Ltd , they completely renovated my bathroom for my disabilities needs. I feel very safe now and Iâ€™m very happy with the professional work theyâ€™ve done. Big thanks! Monica
We're very pleased with the services of GL West Construction. They we're brought in by a 3 party supporter of the Boys and Girls Club to complete a kitchen renovation. The timeline was extremely tight. The crew worked along side Boys and Girls Club staff and volunteers, provided professional leadership, and worked hard into the night to ensure the job was done right!
Gladly be a reference,
Please ask for the Facility Director at the Boys and Girls Club of South Coast BC.
We have renovated several properties and this renovation was the most efficient and successful reno to date. Gheorghe was recommended by an acquaintance and we met with him and discussed our requirements. We agreed on a start date a couple months away and we hoped that the reno would be done in about 2 months. This is a 1200 sq' apt and it was done in under 8 weeks. Gheorghe was easy and fun to work with. He was extremely patient and flexible as we altered some plans as we moved through the reno and he was extremely easy to deal with. We were always amazed at his skill level with anything we suggested....even as we altered our course on specific parts of the plan, he would simply say "sounds good" and move on. My experience with renovations is that a lack of communication and understanding of the process could lead to frustration and misunderstanding. This did not happen at all with Gheorghe. We always maintained communication. Finally I have to mention this: once the bulk of the job was done and there were just small things to tend to, Gheorghe always stayed in contact to ensure we were happy and schedule time to come and finish any outstanding items. I would recommend Gheorghe for any renovation you are planning- large or small. He is extremely talented and a pleasure to work with.
Excellent support from George. Always available for questions and went over in making sure that all was done right form the point of permits to the inspections. Hes chosen team was reliable and trustworthy.
Gheorghe was a reliable contractor who was easy to communicate with and was flexible as required. He did high quality work, and we appreciate his cleanliness throughout the renovation given we were living in the space while the work was being done. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a renovation.
