What People Are Saying About Us
"We want to give a shout out to Ryan Dumaresq and bring his talents to the attention of those requiring a Contractor. A family friend first brought Ryan, “our Contractor”, to our attention in October. Since that time Ryan has undertaken numerous household enhancements, repairs, and renovation projects. Ryan's commitment to precision and perfection rival any of the renovators or contractors that we have had over the years in this house. Ryan has an amazing skill set - he has installed IKEA cabinetry in laundry room, built custom shelf over washer and dryer, custom shelf and rack for drying shirts, designed and made concrete countertop, designed and built custom cabinetry doors in 3 bathrooms, installed granite countertops, sinks, faucets, installed tile backsplash, replaced toilets and bidet. His most ambitious project was a basement bathroom renovation that involved removing a bathtub and designing & constructing an oversized shower complete with tile work and shower doors. Ryan also updated our basement flooring with vinyl planking. He built up an IKEA unit to create an awesome "shoe shelf" that blends beautifully with our existing custom cabinetry. Ryan is a master with all the basic construction tools, which he put to the test when he replaced every door and closet in the house (12 doors & 4 closets. In our 1970s house, nothing is square and many of the doors had to be cut and planed to fit. Ryan has built shelving in our furnace room, repaired drywall in the garage and replaced with car wash sheeting to ensure no further water damage. He replaced out of date track lighting & light fixtures both inside and outside the house. Ryan most recently built the most amazing covers for our air conditioners so that we don't have to look at the equipment when sitting in the back yard. There has yet to be a job too big or small for him to manage. He is beyond neat and tidy, his workspace was vacuumed at the end of everyday. Ryan has an amazing disposition and has enthusiastically embraced all our crazy ideas. In the 8 months that he has been tackling the various jobs in our home he has met almost all our family and he always makes time for conversation with them. Our children are grown (19 & 21) and Ryan regularly chats with them about either their day or weekend escapades.
Ryan is an impressive, talented, and dedicated young man who undertakes his projects with enthusiasm and professionalism. If you are looking for someone for repair, construction or renovation projects, this is your guy! Ryan has left an outstanding impression on both our home and our family. "

"We hired Eric (evolve developments) to paint the two upper floors of our house, including walls, trim and all doors, as well as perform some minor carpentry fixing. Eric (evolve developments) is a renovating and painting contractor that was recommended by friends who were very impressed by their quality of work. We were also very impressed by their processes from start to finish. The process started with a very thorough discussion and approach that provided a good quality and competitive quote. During the entire process, they provided great communication, which was very helpful because we lived in the house a large majority of the working period. Additionally, they applied meticulous procedures to ensure a quality product, worked efficiently around a couple other contractor issues that occurred and were extremely accommodating when new issues were brought forth during the job. The overall level of care for us and our job was first class. We have hired several contractors for other jobs but Eric has certainly set an exceptional standard with us. We were extremely happy that we selected them and will use them for future work as well as recommend them to our friends!"
"In the summer of 2013, we were working under tight timelines to complete a number of projects within our home, in anticipation of our daughter's wedding. We have always enjoyed home renovation, and took pride in completing our own projects with care and attention to detail. This time, we bit off a little more than we could chew! With our deadline fast approaching, we contacted Eric (evolve developments), hopeful that we might be rescued. Rescued we were! The company was immediately responsive to our call. Within the week, Eric Murray had come to the house, assessed what would be required, and began the process of drawing up a plan. In short succession, we were able to review the drawings together, and agreed to proceed. Eric demonstrated competence and experience with excellent suggestions related to our project. He also worked to keep costs within our budget which speaks to his integrity.
Once the project began, things went according to plan. I was made aware when the contractor would be on site, and we were pleased with how things took shape. The workers that were here were personable, professional and at the house when they said they would be. Evolve Developments also kept a clean job site which was important to us. Eric visited the sight twice a day while construction was underway, to ensure things were done to his satisfaction which we also appreciated. Not only were we relieved to have our project completed before the wedding, it was beautifully done and an absolute pleasure to work with Eric. It was a stress free experience. It is exciting to know we have established this contact for future projects, knowing now how wonderful it is to have someone else do the work sometimes, and with skill, competence and integrity!"
Evolve has Built numerous homes for us and we will continue to use them. Eric is great to work with and is very knowledgeable. Because of Eric's experience he has helped us solve and fix many problems that were caused by other trades. We highly recommended using Evolve Developments."
