At Sitka Coast Construction, we understand that renovations can be an overwhelming and stressful experience. That’s why we offer a full-service approach to take the stress out of your project. You share your vision with us and we will take it from there.
We meet many homeowners who are debating between a complete home renovation in North Vancouver and buying a new house. With limited inventory on the North Shore, most of our clients find that bringing new life into their well loved home gives them the best of both worlds. We recognize that your house is so much more than four walls and a roof. It is the experiences shared within those walls that make it a home. So, whether it’s the memories you can’t forget, or you’ve been blessed with a fantastic location, an extensive renovation back to the framing can satisfy your desire for an upgrade while simultaneously allowing you to keep everything you’ve loved about your house for so long.

At Sitka Coast Construction, we have the knowledge and experience to bring any vision to life. Our experienced staff and sub-trades are masters in every facet of the construction process. Our meticulous, intricate and replicable process ensures every project runs seamlessly from start to finish. It makes no difference whether it’s a simple bathroom renovation, full home renovation, home addition, or a complex commercial tenant improvement our proven systems ensure a successful project result every time. All of our sites are overseen by a fully qualified Red Seal Carpenter to ensure quality is to the highest standard.
We are very proud to work on a Fixed-Pricing system. Using this model we are able to ensure the fastest possible timelines. During the pre-construction phase we are able to finalize the project before construction begins. This approach allows us to confirm all prices, including labour costs and materials, and eliminate hidden charges for unnecessary change orders or incorrect orders. We place great emphasis on the design phase, especially if your renovation involves moving walls or changing layouts. Whether you’re investing in a kitchen renovation, full home renovation or home addition, our architectural and interior designers ensure your home’s style is cohesive and aligns with your vision.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A FULL HOME RENOVATION
At Sitka Coast Construction, we pride ourselves on making the full home renovation process as seamless as possible for our clients. From our first meet and greet phone call we will discuss your project as a whole, establish goals and key values you have for your project and discuss early stages of the budget.
It is important for us to understand your 'why' for the project so that we can keep that as top priority throughout the renovation as challenges may arise.
From here, we will take measurements and pictures of the space and provide an estimated rough construction budget range for the project.
We will then discuss your project with Designers, Architects and Engineers, create a scope of work for initial design and present our Pre-Construction Proposal for all preliminary work required. Once approved we will proceed to the Design and Construction planning process, create and finalize Building permit plans, enter into a formal construction agreement contract, and apply for and receive the building permit.
Throughout the construction process we schedule key milestone meetings to review and discuss project as it moves through schedule.
When you take Sitka on as your contractor, we consider you our partner for life. We are proud to offer an above industry standard warranty period of two years. But if anything should ever arise past that date we will always help you to find a solution.
WHY SHOULD YOU INVEST IN A FULL HOME RENOVATION
If you have recently purchased an older home, or require major upgrades where you’re living right now, you may need a full home renovation, which is extensive and involves most major elements of your home. In these types of projects the interior finishes are removed and you start from scratch, but you may also decide to retain certain finishes, which may still be in good condition.
Typically though, most home renovations involve at least the kitchen and bathrooms along with other necessary improvements to the home, which may include the basement, laundry room, bedrooms, and other common areas. Upgrades and repairs may also be needed with insulation, the flooring, plumbing, HVAC and electrical along with wall finishes. In some instances, the exterior and structural elements of the home may also need to be looked at including the home’s framing, masonry, roofing, landscaping, and windows & doors.
Not only do trends change over time, but older homes are also more susceptible to possible dangers and inefficiencies. Your appliances, windows, wiring, plumbing, electrical and insulation may be facing out-dated warranties and building codes. So, not only is a complete home makeover an opportunity to increase your home’s value and transform its style, but it might also be an essential investment depending on its age. We can help you evaluate the benefits of full home renovations in North Vancouver and breathe new life into your well loved home.

We focus on achieving an accurate scope of work and plans for the project so we can provide a project cost to our clients with a high degree of accuracy.
Do I need to move out of my house during the renovation process?Depending on the scope of work and if you are renovating your entire home all at once, you may not be able to live in your space while the renovations are taking place. It is always recommended for a full renovation that you find alternate accommodation as this will give you the best project experience possible.
