My wife and I contacted Barry in regards to having a fence and gate constructed across the rear of our yard. Barry responded promptly to our E-mail, and arrived at the specified time to conduct a survey of the job. We received an e-mail estimate and the job proceeded as scheduled. Barry’s crew were respectful of our property and exceedingly professional. The job was completed to our complete satisfaction and a few hundred dollars under the estimate. We have already arranged for Barry and his crew to undertake further work on our home. We highly recommend Full Circle Renovations and look forward to another job well done.

Barry and his crew built a large deck space on to our house we purchased in Port Alberni.  We were on the mainland while most of it was being built.  I cannot say enough about the way Barry kept us updated on the work he was doing as well as a few problems that came up.  Barry was great at trouble shooting and getting the work done within my budget.  My husband and I were very happy with the finished result and will enjoy our deck for years to come.  I would recommend Barry and his crew for any renovations that needed to be done on your home.  We will use him again if we have any more work to be done. Thanks again

My husband and I hired Full Circle Renovations for our basement reno and were quite pleased with how it all turned out. Barry had some great ideas when it came to some finishing work that turned out very nice.
Although we did have a few changes he did his best to stay within our budget.
He was very good at communicating with us on the progress and what was going to be happening next.
Phone calls were always returned or answered, if he had an appointment with you, he was on time.
I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Full Circle Renovations again.

Full Circle Renovations did an awesome job of dealing with my total deck re-build.
First they dealt with the removal of  the 2 inch concrete slab original on deck.
Then a total structural rebuild was done and Barry was great at informing me of procedures and requirements.
The new vinyl surface over the plywood, with welded seams  looks great and with the fascia mounted metal handrail is totally water proof with zero maintenance . Barry ‘s attention to detail, thoroughness and site clean up, along with good communication  made this project happen in a timely and professional manner.
I would gladly recommend Full Circle Renovations Inc. for any of your renovation needs.

With pleasure we write this recommendation. We were aware of Barry and his crew from Full Circle Renovations from work he did on a rental. We recently purchased a house that was in need of some upgrades. Barry and crew installed a new roof, new flooring, leak repair {Basement wall}, hot water tank and toilets, Kitchen and Bathroom vents.
Barry kept us informed of progress along the way. We were most impressed with attention to detail and the quality of his work. We would obtain Barry and Full Circle renovations for further work.

I was very pleased with the way the whole project went. Barry’s assistance with the paperwork for the HAFI grant was appreciated. Full Circle Renovations did a great job rebuilding of my porch to make it once again structurally strong, as well as the install of side windows to keep weather from blowing thru. The second part was to build an accesses ramp between the porch and the sidewalk, with steps in two directions leading to the lawn, looks great!
I can happily recommend Full Circle Renovations, as Barry was prompt to respond to my project as well I like the fact the he kept me informed of procedures; good communication skills.
Thanks for a job well done.

In August of 2012 we contacted Full Circle Renovations Ltd. to rebuild a front
porch that we had recently torn down. Barry was prompt to return our call, and
although he was busy, came quickly to assess the job. A quote was soon
submitted and we liked his ideas.
Barry and his crew were diligent workers and it was obvious they enjoyed their
work as there was laughter and singing amid the hammering and sawing. It
was a pleasure to see someone enjoy their craft and do their work with pride.
Barry was always mindful that the job be done correctly and aesthetically
pleasing. The porch turned out better than we anticipated!
We would recommend Barry and Full Circle Renovations Ltd. to anyone looking
for a builder who wants the job done right and at a fair price. If we are in need
of a carpenter again, we will certainly contact them.

Testimonial: For the last 8 years my wife and I have had Full Circle Renovations Inc. handle the maintaince on 7 different investment rental properties we have in Port Alberni . Barry and his crew , as well as his associated sub trades have done a great job at upkeep , renovation and helping out with a wide range of problems that can occur with older residential houses; from minor problems to whole house rebuilds . Barry’s excellent documentation with photos of before, during and final completed projects along with detailed billing has made me feel very comfortable with his judgment. We do not reside in Port Alberni and having a knowledgeable, trustworthy company that we can call upon for any of my repairs and problems has been a tremendous value to us and would gladly recommend Full Circle Renovations services to everyone .

We will hire Full Circle Renovations again. We were so impressed by Barry and his crew. Their many skills, cleanliness, interaction with us, artistic flair; all in all their true professionalism impressed us so much. All this at a fee we could live with. Ours was a very difficult reno of two forty-five year old bathrooms. Both now are beautiful and modern and work with high efficiency.

I first contacted Barry Bruyere in March and my first impression was very favorable. He returned my call, we set up a meeting. and Barry arrived on time. We discussed what I wanted done. At first it was fixing my ceiling, painting the walls in my living room, kitchen, hallway dinning room and taking paneling off of a wall. Barry gave me and estimate and we set up a start date. Before the job started I decided to have more work done. New kitchen and bathroom counters. paint kitchen cupboards, paint bathroom, entrance way. Then we added crown molding and baseboards in entrance way, living room, dining room, kitchen, hallway, bathroom. As the job continued I added more things such as putting in a new toilet and sink, changing my space heaters and all the wall sockets, changing the thermostats, putting up new light fixtures, door bell, and fire alarm. I had many squeaks in my kitchen and bathroom floor and Barry got rid of them. No matter
what I added to the job Barry was open to it.
I went away for two weeks and most of the work was done then. I had no qualms leaving Barry while I left.
The crew that Barry has working with him were very professional.
As the job progressed Barry stayed within my initial budget till I added more jobs and Barry kept me informed with revised copies of the new costs.
Barry was very helpful with suggestions on how to make things better like putting two small doors on a couple of cupboards.
We were always in communication either by phone, e-mail or visits to the house. Barry was always on time and if he was going to be late he called to let me know.
Barry’s attention to detail was unbeliveable. I would highly recommend Barry Bruyere to anyone who is looking to have any type of renovations done.

Sept 2008
We first employed Full Circle Renovation in 2007 to install a new kitchen countertop, tile backsplash, and tile floor and were so pleased with Barry Bruyere’s   work that we called him back to do the drywall mudding, ceiling repairs, floor tile and tub enclosure tile in our bathroom.   Most recently we hired him again to dismantle and rebuild our carport, deck and balcony. Barry is skilled and experienced in all aspects of home construction and finishing, is a careful and precise craftsman, and is attentive to details, setting a high standard in all his work.   He takes a creative approach to projects, makes excellent suggestions, and is pleasant and affable to work with.   We have found him to be reliable and honest, completing projects on schedule and within budget.   We plan to use his services for further renovation projects around our house, and have no hesitation in recommending him to other clients.

Full Circle Renovation:
Barry Bruyere did a renovation of our upstairs bathroom. The bathroom was gutted and a jet tub, vanity with 2 sinks and toilet were installed. Barry did the floor tiling as well, which was straight and level. His work was professional looking. Barry was always on time, and if he was going to run late he called to let us know. His work area was always left tidy and clean. Barry kept us informed of what he would be doing and if there were any changes that needed to be made. As well, he stayed on budget.

Barry is currently working on our kitchen renovation, which will include installing a microwave/fan system, installing a new dishwasher, rearranging and painting cupboards, putting together one set of cabinets and installing them and changing the electrical outlets.

We would recommend Barry without hesitation.

As you are aware, Hilda and I had had a couple of bad experiences when contracting with companies to do renovations for us in two different houses.
We were therefore rather hesitant to do it again, however you made an excellent impression on us both when we met..We were very pleased with the work ethic you showed and the quality of the work performed. We also appreciated the cleanup of the normal mess made when renovating.
We were particularly pleased with the fact that when you said you would do something you did on time.
The job you did for us was completed on schedule and on budget and we were pleased with the finished result.
We wish you the best. If or when you move to the Island and we will be happy to pass our comments on to any potential clients you get,

Barry has done two projects for me.
He replaced our back door which was old and odd sized and did great job of fabricating to allow him to fit a normal steel door. After 5 years it doesn’t even squeek! Barry also levelled our old floor in the kitchen and laundryroom and quickly laid the laminate on top of it. First class worrk, priced right, we’ll call on him again.

Fall 2003
To whom it may concern:
Barry Bruyere has been involved in two renovation projects in our house.

1) In September, 2003, Barry (and Eugene Slowski) replaced our sundeck. They did so in a timely and congenial manner and we are pleased with the result.

2) In March, 2004, Barry replaced our kitchen countertops. This turned out to be a somewhat bigger job than anticipated. Our kitchen is old…put in by a previous owner…and the modern, preformed countertops didn’t fit easily unto our old cabinets. But with additional work and some extra bits and pieces, Barry got it in place.

We can recommend Barry Bruyere (and Eugene Slowski) for the carpentry work they have done for us. It is also a big plus that they both are easy to talk to, get information from, and are willing to show and discuss the various aspects of their work.

We found Barry to be very knowledgeable and helpful in planning out our renovation and schedules.
He has good insight and made many helpful recommendations.
When problems arose during the job he handled everything with good humour and skill.
He is neat and keeps his job sites clean and tidy.
Thank you Barry – a job well done and we have recommended Barry to our friends and neighbours with no qualms or worries. Barry is always busy and completely trustworthy and work-site safe.
It was certainly a good experience for us to have him in our small home and to help us get moved in and settled without the minimum of concerns that always pop up on even the smoothest or troubling move to a new home.

Summer 2001
To whom it may concern:
I purchased an old farm house on Saltspring Island in the summer of 2001. It was in much need of structural repairs, jacking and leveling and I was not sure what could be done. Full Circle Renovations did a great job replacing footings and beams, and leveling out floors that were almost six inches out of level in some places. On the second phase of this renovation Barry and his crew returned and re-created much of the trimwork to match existing heritage style. Hardworking, knowledgeable and reliable,
I would happily recommend Barry for a wide range of renovation projects.
