What people are saying …

I had been looking to renovate my den and hallway closets for some time. Having recently retired, I had the time to explore what options were out there. I take great pride in the appearance of my condominium, that is, a clean, modern, warm look. In today's world, high level craftsmanship I thought, was a rare commodity. To my surprise and after much research, I found Vertical Grain Projects. In all honesty, I knew nothing about millwork except that there were a number of companies willing to do the work. A reputation involving honesty, integrity, and competency mean everything to me. It became quickly apparent after meeting with the company owner Doug, and soon after his project manager Nick, both of whom came to my home, that this local company was perfect for the job. WOW, the finished projects exceeded my design expectations; but additionally, I was impressed with the individuals involved in the installation process. At every point from start to finish, I was guided by professionals that know what they are doing. What a relief! I can finally enjoy both spaces knowing I made the smart choice.

Doug, Dave and their team did an outstanding job renovating our fireplace. Always very polite, clean, and above else, very professional. Highly recommended.

We are very happy with the remediation work completed on our front entry stairs in November 2020. Doug and his team provided constructive/design solutions to water issues we were having. His team of workers were pleasant and knowledgeable at making the repairs blend with existing construction. They completed their tasks in a timely fashion. Vertical Grain conducts their business in a very professional way. We are very pleased with their work and would not hesitate to use their services again.

I’m incredibly happy with the renovation completed for me by Vertical Grain. The work is top quality and exceeded my expectations, and I’m especially happy with some of the creative millwork solutions introduced into the space. Doug and his team are wonderful to work with - the crew was polite, friendly and incredibly reliable, and they worked to keep the space tidy and liveable through the duration of the job. I’m really and truly thrilled with the worked completed by the Vertical Grain team!

Vertical Grain did some work for us creating a beautiful murphy bed, as well as some custom storage/closets in our bedroom and office. We are over the moon with the work that was done. The finished product is a work of art, all very high end and beautifully finished. All the staff of Vertical Grain was extremely friendly and reliable, and I would have no hesitation recommending them for any work that you may have on your home, etc. We will be in touch with Vertical Grain in the spring to build our backyard tiki bar as well. Thank you Vertical Grain Projects!

Doug and his team took on extensive repairs to my house caused by water damage that had remained hidden for many years.The amount of damage was only revealed as work progressed and was more extensive than at first thought. Throughout the whole process their commitment and quality of work remained high. The foreman on the job kept me informed on all progress and the workmen left the site clean at the end of each day. They were competent and courteous and made what could have been a very trying experience into something positive.

Working with Vertical Grain was a complete pleasure. From discussing project expectations to executing the final project, there was zero disappointments. Minor issues were dealt with quickly and very professionally, Trades left the place spotless at the end of the job too. Quality of work was 10+ and dealing with both Doug and Caroline was great.

It was a privilege to finally get to work with Doug and the guys/gals at Vertical Grain Projects Ltd. Their professionalism, attention to detail and quality of work were exemplary. More importantly, my wife was happy and the dog had some free day-care (they are good at looking after pets). I would highly recommend them for any renovation work especially if it involves kitchen and bathroom works. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and look forward to working with them in the future!

Excellent quality work, completed on schedule (despite bad winter weather). Careful attention to detail in all carpentry work. I would certainly recommend them for residential renovations. The most recent work is the second project at my home completed by Vertical Grain. I would certainly hire them again.

We had the pleasure of having Vertical Grain Projects look after our stairs upgrade renovation and we found them thorough, detailed-oriented, caring, communicative, highly professional, and the end product is amazing. We're very happy overall and would hire them again without hesitation.

Vertical Grain is the best residential contractor that we've had the pleasure of dealing with in the lower mainland. We asked them to take on a complex series of renovations to a 1908 character home. Their workmanship was superb, and they found creative, cost-effective solutions to addressing the many challenges associated with our project. A few elements were exceptionally time-sensitive, and Doug and his crew came through in a way that exceeded our expectations. We will definitely use Vertical Grain for future projects, and recommend them without hesitation.

Vertical Grain Projects helped bring my "dream" home vision to life. They are knowledgeable and creative and have an integrity that is brought to the job everyday. I believe that my project would not have turned out as amazing as it did without their input. I highly recommend them.
