Sprucehill is a custom homebuilder and renovation company. For more than ten years, our deep construction expertise and a relentless drive for quality has established us as one of the North Shore’s top custom home builders.
THE SPRUCEHILL MANIFESTO
For the client and builder alike, once a build is underway it becomes easy to think of it simply as a project, where the goal is just to get the next phase completed and keep things moving forward.
However, we never forget that it’s much more than that. From the initial plan to the last finishing nail, it’s your home. Your sanctuary. The place where your kids will grow up. It’s often the sum of your entire life’s work, and the most significant financial and emotional investment you will ever make. And you’ve entrusted us with the privilege and responsibility of constructing it. So whenever you look at it, whether today or in 30 years, we want you to feel not only a sense of pride in the home itself but also satisfaction in choosing us to build it. That’s something we don’t want you to forget.
Meanwhile, we never forget that since so much of your life is invested in the process, even the most straightforward project can create stress and anxiety for you as the client. As builders and renovators, we consider stress to be like asbestos—if it’s present, we remove it completely so it won’t affect you.
We know a house is more than a building
It’s where you and your family live
It’s where you create memories
It’s your build and we treat it that way.
True, building a home is a massive and complex undertaking. But in terms of how we do business, we believe in keeping things simple:
You would think any of these things would be a given, but unfortunately, for many in this industry it seems they just aren’t.
That’s why Sprucehill was created—because we sincerely believed we could be the best home builder and renovator in town, simply by keeping our focus on these core principles.
They will always guide us in everything we do. Not just regarding building practices, but also in terms of how we conduct ourselves as a business and as people.
THE SPRUCEHILL PROCESS
In our experience, communication is a skill that’s every bit as important as any other in construction (yes…even masonry). When it’s done well, it makes any other issue manageable, no matter the size. That’s why we’ve designed our process to keep you informed and engaged throughout your entire project.
Here is an overview of our three-phase, no-b.s. project management system:
Before any work begins, we develop a custom-designed plan and budget for your entire project, complete with a detailed overview:
Once the build begins, our cloud-based project management system ensures up-to-date budgeting and workflow scheduling to ensure maximum transparency and quality:
COMPLETION & BEYOND
Sprucehill was created because we knew we could build homes better than anyone else. Over the past decade this belief has been validated as we have risen through the ranks of Vancouver’s competitive home renovation and construction industry. The proof – our number one driver of new business is through client referrals.
Our expert team is your complete building resource, we employ the finest designers, craftsmen and tradespeople. We feel continuing education and credentialing is critical and regularly attend events and trade shows to further our education and stay on top of the latest products and trends available.
It’s not easy to write profiles of team members who’d rather spend their time on-site making clients’ dreams into reality than describing themselves to a copywriter. However, since each of them is such an integral part of our success, we’ve given it our best shot.
Our project went really smoothly and with minimum disruption to our day to day lives thanks to the efficient management and quality of sub-trades used. It was refreshing to work with a contractor who was honest and upfront in the project; providing a realistic budget, project timelines and everything in between. It was great working with Sprucehill and we would strongly recommend you to anyone starting a reno project on the North Shore.
Sprucehill did an amazing job repairing and rebuilding our deck. Erik has high quality standards but is also very practical, which resulted in our project being finished on time, under budget, and beyond our expectations. He did a great job understanding what we wanted, offered great advice during planning, and was always available to answer questions. We will definitely call Sprucehill for my next project.
We found that the subcontractors and personnel employed by Sprucehill Contracting were very professional in the manner they conducted their work. The work was done efficiently and the premises were kept clean of all debris and materials. Erik was responsible for organizing and coordinating all the work to be done and this was done to our satisfaction. Any problems or difficulties were dealt with immediately and corrected in a timely manner.
We want you to know how thrilled we are with our en suite bathroom. It was such a relief to us when you agreed to save us from the horrible mess we had landed ourselves in due to some poor decisions on our part. It was a pleasure working with you. You were thorough, your sub-trades were great, and most importantly you were always accessible to us and responded promptly and efficiently. Looking forward to working with you on our next reno project.
Erik gave honest, professional opinions on what needed to be done & how it could get done within the timeline & budget plan. In the end, the results were awesome. I've since moved in & hosted my first dinner party. My friends were very impressed with the improvements. Most importantly, I am comfortable & happy in my newly renovated place.
