More about our Work

We first worked with Vriend Construction to renovate our family home. It was a big undertaking and the result was such a great success that we had no hesitation in hiring them again when it came time to build our commercial building. I find the really nice thing about working with Chris is that he’s open to ideas and he’ll give you straight answers – there are no hidden costs and no surprises. He also makes great suggestions – such as changes to the building exterior that ensured it looked appealing and fit in with the surrounding community. I have complete trust in Vriend Construction and have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and neighbouring businesses.

Vriend Construction built our commercial shop and office building, as well as the adjoining car wash. We have now asked them back to complete an expansion. Working with Chris is awesome…he really partners with you from beginning to end, ensuring everything is done right. He’s an excellent builder who’s very well organized; he insists on keeping the job site clean and that was great to see. I have been recommending Vriend to business associates for several years now.

Brian Kearns

Owner, Osgoode Tire Sales, Enniskerry

Over the years, we have worked with Vriend Construction on three major projects. Along with very reasonable pricing, our building experiences were both enjoyable and rewarding. The construction crews/bosses were always accommodating and flexible. We definitely recommend Vriend Construction as a building contractor.
