I contacted Devries Construction prior to purchasing my home hoping to get a quote on a major renovation to the main floor. Not only did Pete respond to my inquiry but promptly made arrangements to meet at the property with my realtor. Pete was exceptionally helpful and patient as this was my first renovation and had no idea how to proceed or what to expect. His estimate was in my budget and we scheduled work to start shortly after taking possession. The crew were all knowledgeable, prompt and extremely helpful. Pete and/or Carl was always available to answers my questions or concerns and walked me through the step-by-step process of selecting basically everything from the studs up!
The final renovation came in on budget and I couldn’t have been happier with the end results. The craftsmanship and finishing were outstanding and I absolutely love my new home.
I would highly recommend DeVries Construction. Thank you!!

That was the state of our ‘70’s home when Pete took on our renovation project. We cannot thank Pete, Carl, Randy, and the rest of the quality team enough for the miracles they performed to transform our house…into our home. Pete helped us understand the impact the challenges would have on our budget then developed a plan and schedule to get us there. They brought the house up to structural standards and finished it beautifully. During the project, the crew left the worksite safe and clean for us each day when we returned from work and everyone who came on site was friendly and professional to work with.
We could not be happier with our home, it is now a place we can share with our friends and family. We still require additional renovations, and without any hesitation, DeVries will be our contractor.
We have used Devries Construction for two major renovation projects on our heritage home and the workmanship is excellent! Pete offers professional advice and implements the latest building codes while managing to keep the budget intact. He has a great crew that created some wonderful custom woodwork for us as well. We strongly recommend PJ DeVries Construction for any renovation projects or new builds!

Happy Holidays to everyone there Kathy!
Pete sets a very high standard of craftsmanship and each member of his team lives up to that standard. They are all very professional and friendly, and good to deal with. They do great work and stand behind it. Anything not done the way it should be is promptly dealt with.
Pete and Kathy have been living and working in the community for many years, and understand the importance of client service to a sustainable business.
Not living in the area and building while living overseas meant we had to find a builder that we could trust. The builder would need to have good communication skills, to ensure that our new home would be everything we imagined. After years of research, recommendations and interviews we chose Devries. They made the planning and selection process a joyful and pleasant experience. We felt informed and relaxed as our plans were coming together on the other side of the globe.

We were not disappointed! From the first moment we drove around the corner and saw our new home until now, we have been impressed with the quality of construction, choice of materials and thoughtful considerations that only years of experience and passion can bring. The Devries’ team possesses a high degree of ownership and professionalism.
Pete and Kathy Devries continued to stand behind their product, responding to requests for years after the completion of the project. The longer we live in our home the more we appreciate the quality of their efforts and the home they built for us.
We are very satisfied customers!
We asked Pete DeVries to help us finish a main floor renovation we had started ourselves. The crew built custom fireplace surrounds, wainscoting, replaced doors, lowered floors, removed and replaced old flooring, and repaired and painted drywall and replaced trim. Every crew member was professional and pleasant to deal with. At the end of each day the crew did a thorough clean-up which made our lives a lot easier over the duration of the job. The end result was beautiful and professionally done, and the crew seemed to enjoy our “hands-on” work with them.

It was a pleasure working with Devries Construction during the process of building our new home. We could not be happier with the quality of the work, the management and timeliness of execution, or the support and advice that Pete, Kathy and their team gave us during the process. As this was the first time that we had built a house in this way, for us, the whole process was potentially very stressful, but Devries Construction made it easy for us every step of the way. I’d be delighted to recommend the company to anyone.
We found Peter Devries to be extremely professional...He consulted with us as to what we wanted in terms of a room, and he took our ideas into account, as well as budgetary concerns...We believe that Peter follows very high standards when in comes to the people that he contracts work out to. In the end, we are thrilled with the expansion to our home.

When we finally made the decision to add and renovate our home, the most common comment from friends and family were "Good Luck, make sure you find a good contractor." We wanted to let you know that we found an excellent contractor! From the first time we met, Pete stood out over the other bidders in his professionalism...We knew there was flexibility in changing our plans, and what the ground rules were. This helped to establish a good working relationship throughout the entire renovation and addition work.
