At every stage, we always look for ways to:

  • Simplify planning
  • Improve communication
  • Create a single point of responsibility
  • Save time

We are committed to giving you unparalleled value and satisfaction.

Here is what you can expect from our five-part process:



  • Shortly after submitting your inquiry through our website, someone from our team will connect with you to gather further information. Art, Trent or James-Erik, our Design/Build Managers, will then contact you to discuss your objectives and review the overall feasibility of your project.
  • They will meet with you at your home to go over your wishes, wants and requirements for the space you want renovated.
  • It is important for us to understand your particular lifestyle needs so we know exactly what you're looking to achieve.


  • A feasibility study is prepared and concept drawings are developed. We will create a preliminary budget and provide you with an initial scope of work based on the site investigation and concepts discussed.
  • After this is presented, we will discuss, fine-tune and correct any of the elements.
  • If the estimate is not within your budget, we can discuss all options that will allow you to accomplish your goals.


  • Working drawings and specifications relative to our discussion and your objectives will be presented.
  • We will go through product selections and descriptions with you.
  • A detailed renovation agreement with options (if any), and allowances will be provided. This gives you confidence that we have heard, understood your needs and wishes, and have produced a design that captures your vision.
  • The agreement will outline when construction will begin, how long it will take to complete and how much it will cost.


  • We will take care of all of the necessary permits and give you a project schedule and start date. We plan with you so you get the maximum use of your house during construction.
  • Our team of skilled craftsmen go out of their way to ensure that inconvenience is kept to a minimum while all work is being complete. Our craftsmen and sub-trades are tidy, polite and care for property and environment.
  • Trent, Art and James-Erik will regularly check in with you so that they can answer any questions your might have. When the project is completed, they will take you on a walk-through to go over all the details of the build.


  • Your satisfaction means a lot to us and want you to be delighted with your renovation long after you’ve finished paying for it - that’s why we guarantee our work for a full five years after completion!
  • We also offer a small-jobs service to our clients, so that you can continue to enjoy every part of your home. We can add a deck or gazebo, replace a door or build in some laundry room cabinets. All completed with the same level of quality and care that our clients expect from Menno S. Martin.
