Bathroom (en suite) Renovation.
Shipton Construction undertook a complete renovation down to the drywall and bare floor of the en suite in our home. The job was done on budget and in a timely manner. My spouse and I are completely satisfied with the work and recommend Shipton Construction on the basis of our experience with the job. Brian of Shipton Construction proved himself to be an honest contractor and one that went beyond the contracted terms, at no additional cost to us, to deliver to the intent of the agreement. My spouse especially appreciated the neatness in which the rest of the house was left at the end of each work day. We would certainly use Shipton Construction for any other home renovations we would contemplate in the future.

Basement Renovation. We put out an RFQ to several basement renovators in August 2014.
Although Shipton Construction's quote was lowest, it was not our main reason for selecting Brian. All the contractors we met with were professional and courteous but Brian stood out for one reason; he did not come across as a businessman. Don't misunderstand, I have a great appreciation for business people and it's not as if Shipton Construction isn't a proper business -- quite the contrary.
We were most attracted to Shipton because of Brian's obvious focus on craftsmanship. Obviously he was taking the job to earn an income but you could tell he was most concerned with doing a great job. I knew I could trust Brian to complete his work as if he were working in his own home. Although there was no official contract with itemized requirements, Brian always went out of his way to satisfy my requests.
If you are looking for a contractor who will focus on documentation and the use contractual obligations as a means of service and will meet every deadline and requirement right on spec, you should consider looking somewhere else. However, if you want to work with a polite, honest, skilled and excellent craftsman who will always have the utmost respect for you and your property, I highly recommend Shipton.
