We hired Greg this spring to help us implement the work of a designer in our small home. He was extremely competent, enjoyable to have in the home, tidy, efficient, but also talented and able to work well with the designer. He has an eye for aesthetics, which really added to our project.

Greg was really great at coming up with solutions and working around us while we lived in our house- and he was speedy as we had a baby on the way.

We would hire Greg again for any small or large project in our home or commercial space.

Brian Childs & Co. Construction Ltd.

Our company has relied on "Aus-Can Carpentry" (Greg Coles) to perform and deliver most of our finishing carpentry needs for over ten years.

Greg is the finest finishing carpenter I have ever contracted to. Chils & Co,. is only a builder of high end custom homes and commercial spaces.

We have been in business in the Central Vancouver Island area for 25 years and have a reputation as the "best" in our trading area for all construction projects. It would be hard for me to replace a person like Greg.

His work habits and quality completed projects would be the "envy" of any customer or contractor. Greg Coles, simply put, is "one exceptional craftsman."

Dear Greg:

I thought I would write you a short note to thank you for the outstanding job that you did on the finishing on our living room bookcase, fireplace and the stair system in our home.

It was indeed a pleasure to have you work for us. Your communication was great.

You always kept us informed in the timing of our project, and how long it would take, when you would show up etc.

It was nice to see a tradesman show up when he said he was going to as well as providing excellent craftsmanship.

Being in the Real Estate business I know that it is difficult in today's competitive world for someone to deliver quality, personalized service.

Your excellent suggestions and recommendations, let that quality and personalized service shine through. It is evident in the final product in our home.

Please feel free to use our names or use our home for showcasing and for any references that you may need to promote yourself to the public. Again thank you so much for a quality and fantastic job.
