I met Dan Barrette a couple of years ago through friends that were having renovations done. I liked him the minute I met him.
He did a great job on their renovations. I had him do some minor work at my place and have since seen other work he has done at clients homes.
Dan is meticulous in his work and will help you come up with solutions when you aren't sure what you want to do with your renovations.
He is very easy to work with and listens to what your needs are.
Dan is professional and does quality work at fair prices. I highly recommend him for any renovations big or small.

Mr. Barrette was contracted by me to carry out a renovation in the main bathroom of my home. The work was excellent and it was carried out in less than one week. Mr. Barrette was always helpful and transparent, while coming in at the agreed-upon-price. The cleanup was timely and well done.

Courteous, Knowledgeable, Collaborative
Daniel was top notch in his expertise and service. We were in an unfortunate situation with a previous renovation and he came in as a calm, knowledgeable and collaborative partner. We really felt respected, consulted and the cadence and tone of his communication to us was second to none.

Dan has worked with me on a number of projects. His level of workmanship and attention to detail is outstanding. My clients have been extremely happy with the outcome of their design projects and want to continue to work with him on future projects. Dan was referred to me by a Designer who had worked with him on a large project. I have a huge amount of gratitude for her for introducing me to Daniel. Together we have done a full basement renovation, a two storey renovation which included custom cabinetry and am presently working with him on a three story home renovation including a full kitchen and basement renovation. I am very excited to be working with him on our next upcoming design project, a master bedroom and bath renovation.
~ Heather Bryant, HAB Design
We were very impressed with how professional this company is. Dan walked us through all scenarios of what the bathroom could look like, we went through budget expectations and Dan came within our budget parameters. Dan went above and beyond to make our bathroom look spectacular. His vision and accuracy is above any other contractor I have worked with in the past. He is VERY clean and respectful to all aspects of our house. I love my new bathroom! We will be using this company again for further renovations!

In the Fall of 2015 we hired Dan and his team to finish our basement. Our initial contractor hired for the job cancelled on us. Dan came to us through a referral - although already busy- Dan very quickly stepped in took control of the job and started the project.
Dan and his team brought with them some creativity and ideas that helped us improve the plan and design for our new basement. We are very pleased with the quality and the finish, and enjoy our new basement immensely. Dan's team was clean, efficient and a pleasure to have in our home.
We would recommend the services of Dan Barrette We are completely satisfied with the work they did in our home and would use their services again.

I wish to thank you for your superb work which you did at our home on the weekend of March 17 and 18, 2012.
Following your visit to give an estimate on the repairing of various cracks in the plaster walls of our home and also the painting which I requested, you stated that you would be able to do the work on the weekend mentioned above. I was truly impressed with your punctuality on both those dates mentioned. Your work ethic was totally respected and the finished result more than satisfactory.
I found you very pleasant to have in our home and will definitely recommend that any family or friends needing work done should contact you. I will also pass this info on to those who recommended you to me.
Once again, many thanks for all your help and I look forward to having you back again in the future.
~ Sue Hurley
Very pleased with the complete basement renovation Dan just completed for me. He took the time to talk to me about my vision and desires for the completed look whereas other contractors just rushed in a price and rushed out. He tidies up after every work day and keeps things organized.
Would recommend Dan in a heartbeat, great contractor, great guy!
Awhile back, we had this gentleman renovate our upstairs bathroom. We got his name from a nearby hardware store while shopping for a new bathroom vanity. The store manager highly recommended this contractor to us as he had done quite a bit of work through them for a group advocating for the physically challenged. He excelled at installing kitchen and bathrooms (including for physically challenged people) and was always their first call for such projects. Anyway, we liked his easygoing personality and he provided many pictures of previous work done.
When he commenced our bathroom work, he was very meticulous about it and made sure to clean up the area at the end of each day. He gutted the upstairs bathroom and put in all fixtures, tiling and flooring. He paints beautifully and carefully to top off the job.
We are pleased to recommend this contractor to anyone wanting quality home renovation work done promptly and at reasonable cost.
The finished result was beautiful.
~ Andy Baker
We engaged Mr. Dan Barrette, to carry out renovations in our condominium in 2012 and to act as general contractor for the project. Dan's creativity was a great asset to the project: he had numerous excellent suggestions which have made our space much more enjoyable. Dan also works well with others. He cooperated smoothly with our interior decorator and the security staff of our condominium appreciated his regard for the building's regulations and cleanliness.
Dan arranged for removal of our original flooring and kitchen and coordinated their replacement. In addition, he removed the stippling from all ceilings and restored them to their original smooth finish. Dan also arranged and supervised installation of crown moulding in all rooms, and the necessary electrical changes we made. Mr. Barrette also replaced baseboards and painted the entire space as well. His work with tile and as a painter is outstanding.
This work has been carried out to our complete satisfaction. The project was completed within the agreed budget. Mr. Barrette's attention to detail and quality of finish are excellent. He is a cheerful, trustworthy person to work with and has a solid, practical grasp of the renovation process.
We unreservedly recommend Dan for renovation or new construction projects, and would be happy to provide further details on request.
~ Carol Brayam, T. David Williams
Dan took our vague concept of 'modernizing' our basement and made it a reality with a top to bottom refresh .... new fireplace, tiles, flooring, walls, electrical, stairs, shelving.
Our room went from the late '60's, to a room we are now proud to have people over to see.
Dan took the time to fix any unexpected surprises, even those that wouldn't necessarily pose a problem in the future, so that everything was perfect.
He was on budget, maintained a clean and safe space, and was always available for any questions or concerns that we may have had.
~ Mark Ballantyne
My family hired Dan Barrette for a complete 1,600 sq ft condo renovation and have never looked back. Since then, we have refereed him to friends and family, who have also received 10/10 star treatment with $250k+ renovations. Dan's attention to our needs, lifestyle and budget made the experience wonderful from start to finish. He is a friendly, competent, trustworthy and very talented tradesman who will provide excellent finished product + experience while working with the client towards the end result. He genuinely cares about the clients needs and has a skilled eye to create incredible living spaces at budget. He is only happy when the end product is right and finished. Dan's straight forward approach, safety first attitude and integrity set him apart, so I highly recommend you contact Dan Barrette for your renovation needs (hence why I took the time to write this!)---it will be one of the best decisions you have made.

We can recommend his work to anyone without reservation and we would gladly hire him for a future project in our home, we definitely hired the right person for the project.
Daniel is very pleasant and very professional.

Christine & I wanted to thank you once again for the fabulous job that you did as you renovated our two bathrooms. From our first meeting, I recognized the interest you had in doing a job that both you and we would be proud of. Your attention to the details of the design and the materials that would bring the design to life made the process exciting and rewarding. As we watched the process you spent time to help us understand the complexity of the work and the way in which decisions would impact the final result.
At the end we are absolutely impressed every time we use the new renovated spaces. You treated our home, the materials you used and us with utmost respect. We thank you every day for your work. Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference for others that want a high quality renovation. You impressed us no end.

Powder Room Renovation
It has been a pleasure to have you in our home to handle the renovation of our powder room and we are pleased to recommend you to anyone wanting similar work performed.
We especially appreciated the fact that nothing was too difficult or frustrating to you - as can often be the case with renovations where there always seems to be some unknown factor. Moreover, it was a treat to have one person competently handle carpentry, plumbing and electrical work. One of the great barriers to doing this kind of work is finding someone trustworthy to do the various tasks required to complete the job so getting all of these skills in one cheerful person was a real bonus. And, everything was completed on schedule and on budget.
I was impressed with the care you took to get everything "right". I think the fact that you aligned all four screws on a switch plate in the same direction says a lot about your attention to detail!
We will be happy to have you back when we are ready for our next upgrade.
~ Robert Hodgson
Did three projects: bathroom reno, ensuite bathroom added, kitchen reno including wall taken down. Felt in good hands with Dan, always courteous, great communication, projects exceeded expectation.
