Victoria Deck Renovation Testimonial

“Jamie met with us to plan out both our kitchen renovation and our covered deck.  He was excellent at keeping us apprised of progress, costs, and available options.  He listened carefully and went out of his way to accommodate our ideas and suggestions.  He was always cheerful and friendly and a pleasure to have around.  He is a gifted carpenter and never left a mess or an unsafe environment.  We thoroughly enjoy both our beautiful deck and our kitchen!”

Victoria BC Home Renovation Testimonial

“Jamie Stevenson of ʻHome on the Mendʼ has done a number of building and renovation projects for us over the years, and he is the person we call when we have an idea for a large or small improvement to our home. Jamie is a skilled, respectful and very tidy workman, conscious of timelines and budget. Most importantly, he is creative, able to listen to our ideas, see the vision and make it a reality for us.

A recent project was a beautiful deck off the back of our house. We are thrilled with this new addition to our outdoor space! We use the deck for entertaining, family meals, a play place for grand children and just sitting enjoying the sunshine.

Jamie listened to our list of parameters and created a beautifully integrated, easy care structure that echoes the style of the house and adds space on various levels down to the lawn. We called him back a year later with an idea of adding a spa to the mix! He ably completed this request and we hosted the family reunion in August in our enhanced outdoor living area.

We are looking forward to our next project together!”



Victoria Contractor Testimonial – LP

“I have had the pleasure of using Jamie ( Home on the Mend ) for several large renovation / home improvement projects at my 1916 James Bay Home. I was not able to be onsite for any of these projects. Jamie took the lead. He was on-sight, all the time, does his own ( amazing ) work himself ( with his son ) and treats every project as if he were doing the work on his own home. He communicated regularly by email with progress photos and updates.

He made great suggestions, from major structural to paint colors. He stuck to budget and time line. He even dealt with the tenants on several occasions during these renovations. I really didn’t think this kind of service was available in Victoria. When Jamie takes on a project, there is simply “ no worry”, and that kind of peace of mind is a rarity these days.”
