VANCOUVER ISLANDS HOME FOR RENOVATIONS
Whether you are looking to make a few small adjustments, update your kitchen, bathroom, basement or add a stunning new addition, our team will help you rejuvenate your living space with the comfort, function and beauty you are looking for.
Any renovation by Highline Design begins with a visit with you, the client. An initial assessment, consultation and project budget are established, and preliminary designs and/or blueprints are drafted. This is followed by a detailed written quote in which the timeline of the project is determined and allowances for items such as cabinetry, counters, and flooring are made.
Provided the price is acceptable, a contract is created and application for permits is undertaken. During the actual building and renovating stage, we consult and work with you to ensure the progress being made is acceptable to you and to make any modifications that may arise once work has begun.
An inspection is made after each of the milestone stages of construction are achieved. When construction is complete your home is professionally cleaned and the figurative “keys” are handed over with the standard 2-year Warranty and our personal commitment to be there for you if anything goes wrong.
We specialize in full-scale renovations including:
• Basement Renovations
• Bathroom Renovations
• Kitchen Renovations
• Main Floor Renovations
• Lower Level Renovations
• Exterior Renovations

Good interior design is about being creative, imaginative and artistic. But it is just as important to be disciplined, organised and able to work to a budget.
When building your custom designed home, you want everything to be perfect. Choosing colour schemes and laminate and tile selections can be a daunting experience. To assist in your selections, and relieve some of the stress, we offer the complimentary services of a qualified interior designer who will attend your tile shop meeting and coordinate laminate and paint colours to help achieve a professional finish.
Being a custom home builder we also rub shoulders with some of Vancouver Island finest interior designers and would be happy to recommend someone to help finish off your home after you get your keys.
