Awesome job by Kurt and the boys - I'd highly recommend them!


By:Kate Thorburn

Great service. Doug did a fantastic job on my basement bathroom. He was polite and professional. Work ethic was meticulous. It was completed on time and I was involved in any decision that had to be made. Extra work was required due to unforeseen issues with a previous company, but it was explained about the issue, cost to correct and if I chose not to, the issues that I could expect in the future.
The finished product was far better that I had imagined. Fantastic.
Wish I could find more work for them!!!! Would highly recommend to friends and family.



Many thanks to the Mr Build team, especially Doug for the reno of our ensuite bathroom.Beautiful job and we couldn't be happier with the result - went from dilapidated sad bathroom to five star. Thanks Kurt, will be contacting you regrading kitchen reno in the fall.


We wanted a wreck of a basement transformed intelligently into a useable workspace - lighting, insulation, concrete floors, ceilings, walls and doors where necessary, and a few specific cabinetry and purpose built installations - all without breaking the bank. My first concern - and recommendation - is that we had a trustworthy team since this was the family home, and sure enough they were an excellent team of people. Second, we found we could rely on them to work through demolition and them come up with sensible solutions to anything we encountered leaving us the flexibility to decide final layout and design as we went. All the subcontractors seem to be long established relationships and they all work well together.

In discussing this work we also started to expand the remit - an outside sewer line replacement, a new garden fence... All because they are an easy group to get along with and do a good job. We'll be approaching them again if more jobs crop up.


Kurt & his team has done a marvellous job for us with out kitchen. We live in a 100 years old house in Kitsilano and we wanted to put in a new kitchen while maintaining the character of the house. If you have renovated any part of a house that age before you would know how difficult that is, as the construction material is none existent and you will have to rebuild it all from scratch to match existing. Paulo, one talented carpenter in Kurt’s team made that happen – his attention to details, patience & courtesy when dealing with us exceeded all expectation. Paulo is one of Mr build’s team who mostly worked on our kitchen, but the entire team shared the same characteristics. Kurt himself was also very easy to deal with and prompt in replying to all our concerns, questions and even changes that admittedly, sometimes came unexpectedly but he handled it professionally & calmly. We are extremely happy with the work done and so proud of it. We’ d definitely recommend Mr. Build !



Last fall, we contacted Mr. Build regarding the replacement of our bathtub, including the installation of a new fixture, placement of HC grab-bars, finishing the tub surround and skirt with ceramic tile, and installation of sliding glass shower doors.

Kurt Gust responded quickly, provided a reasonable estimate of cost and time for the work, and was more than happy to supply references.

The work started on time and, while it stretched out a bit longer than anticipated, the results were entirely satisfactory. The quality of the workmanship is remarkable; Kurt's craftsman, Doug, more than met our expectations.

Although our experience with Mr. Build has been somewhat limited, we wouldn't hesitate to employ them in future, and certainly recommend their services to others.


“XieXie”. Means Thank you

Another job well done by Mr.Build’s TEAM. Our old looking basement looks spanking new. It’s beautiful. Wish you all could see the pre & post state.
I admire this team’s quality work. They work efficiently & professionally. If we had any concerns Kurt always responded in a timely manner & tries to rectify the problem as best as he can.

Thanks again. We’ll be calling you soon for our next project.


We had 3 bathrooms that needed serious updating and remodeling. We called for quotes and met with contractors.

We chose to work with Mr. Build for two reasons initially. 1) the quote for the work was reasonable and 2) Kurt Gust was very easy to work with. He asked questions and respected our ideas and role in this project.

Once the work started, it was done professionally and efficiently and we saw significant progress every day.

The crew was on-time; focused on their work; dealt with "surprises" in a knowledgeable and professional manner - taking the time to explain the situation and offer sound suggestions - even going beyond the call to find a solution in one case. They were all very respectful, and never left a mess behind at the end of the day.

We would highly recommend Kurt Gust and his crew at Mr. Build for any home renovation or remodeling job that you have.




It was a pleasure to deal with MrBuild renovation company.
Kurt and his working crew were professional, hard working and did an amazing job in my house, renovating the kitchen and bathroom.
I was very pleased with the results.


Nick was very informative and helpful. I would definitely re-hire him.


Kurt and his crew from Mr. Build did a great job on the reno of our condo (including the kitchen, two bathrooms, and complete painting). They were on time and on budget, and the quality of the work was excellent. All the crew members were polite, friendly, and very helpful. Special mention goes to the beautiful stand up shower they designed and built for our master bath, and Paulo's tiling job throughout.



We have used Mr. Build for 8 to 10 projects, both major and minor over a period of several years. We have been very happy with the results and satisfied the bills have been fair. We have no hesitation in recommending Kurt and his crew for any reno work, large or small.



We are in the process of having our basement renovated by Mr. Build of Vancouver. The first stage is over and we were pleasantly surprised that it took less than the estimated time. The hard-working men accommodated our needs and did a good job. We're looking forward to the next phases and the final result.


Wow,what to say about Mr. Build. First of all THANK YOU. Kurt & his team were the best contractor & renovators who worked in my house. They were all very professional & really took pride in their work. They were very thorough & corrected many mistakes previous work which were done by previous owners/renovators. They made valid recommendations which would later save your home from further damages & added costs.

Special thanks to Paulo. He is a treasure to this team.

Kurt is very easy to get a hold of, approachable and non intimidating. He regularly checked on his team & thier projects on site. He is willing to come out & meet with you if you have any concerns/questions.
He & his team were very accomodating to the jobs I kept adding on.

I will definitely use them again.



We have used Mr Build several times over the past few years, for projects ranging from the repair of a cracked and falling ceiling to the installation of a shower-room extension to a bathroom and the installation of a skylight in an awkward location. All jobs were completed satisfactorily at the price originally quoted. One or two minor complaints were dealt with promptly. The crew were without exception a pleasure to have in the house. We would be happy to have Kurt and his crew work for us again.


We ahve used Mr. Build on several projects over the last few years. They have always been very attentive to detail and willing to listen to our needs. They care about the quality of theri work and always leave the job site cleaned up.



Our experience with Mr Build was very positive. From our initial meeting to the finished product I felt that Kurt lived up to our expectations. His crew were friendly and professional. His subtrades (electician/plumber) were respectful and worked well with Kurt's team. Even when we ran into trouble with a subtrade that installed the floor Kurt stepped up and resolved it to our satisfaction at no extra cost to myself.

I WILL use Mr. Build again.



They built a fabulous deck for my home and gave me great advise about maintaining it for years to come. A very honest and hard working crew. Highly reccomended!
