    I purchased a house in the Beach knowing that I would be doing a small renovation. Dean was professional from our first meeting onwards. As the project grew into a total house renovation, Dean rolled with the changes with practical suggestions, excellent cost saving strategies and he kept to my vision. I was impressed with the relationships Dean had established with his trades. I lived in the house during much of the renovation and that made the project all the more challenging for DJP Homes but they worked with the situation and the end result was not compromised. Humour helps. Trustworthy, on time, on budget, no surprises, consistent workmanship, attention to detail, no request was a problem, good natured, adaptable, resourceful, access to reliable and excellent trades, problem solver, current in every way…that was what my DJP Homes experience was all about. If I decided to take on another project, I will be calling Dean and his capable crew.

    When we were looking into buying a home, we were deciding between a new build and a big renovation. We dreamed of creating our own home from scratch but were hesitant because of the time commitments, managing the moving pieces and the overall stress we anticipated. My wife and I are both busy professionals and have little boys to take care of, so free time was limited.DJP Homes went above and beyond all expectations (and we aren’t to easily impressed). From Day 1 we received personalized care ranging from planning to budgeting. This was a 5 star service on all levels. We were given options on trades, advised on new trends, assisted with permits and paperwork, were constantly being updated on all aspects of the build, and so forth. All foreseen issues that come along with building a new home were proactively dealt with in a professional and timely manner. The end result was phenomenal, but the process was stress-free and actually enjoyable.

    Working with DJP Homes has been the kind of experience that a family could only hope for when working with contractors. Dean was helpful in guiding the process of our first ever home renovation, and steered us to make the best possible choices for our space throughout the entire process. From suggesting the best tradespeople down to helping us choose bathroom tile, the team was very involved, incredibly knowledgable and always available. They troubleshooted effectively onsite to make sure that our timelines weren’t affected by any element of the building process, and they made the most efficient use of our time so that we weren’t bogged down by unnecessary details. In the end, they delivered the most incredible home, fit exactly to our taste and perfectly suited to our growing family. We will absolutely work with them again in the future, and could not imagine building another house without them.

    We hired DJP Homes in to renovate our newly purchased home. Our timeline was extremely tight and the scope of work was large. Dean went way above and beyond our expectations. He has an eye an passion for design, but his best qualities are by far his accessibility and work ethic. I recommend Dean without reservation and look forward to working with him again.

    We are so happy we decided to go with DJP Homes for our renovation. The personal attention I received from Dean really changed how I feel about contractors! He was reliable and helpful in every stage of the project, from design to budgeting to ensuring every step was completed with the highest standard of quality and craftsmanship.
