“We contacted Bryce to build an extension onto our existing deck, not only as a home for our new hot tub but to provide another seating area for us to enjoy our time outside. The minute we started talking to him we knew he was the right man for the job. He understood our vision and was willing to listen to our ideas and work with us to create the outdoor space that we were hoping for. Now that the deck is complete, our vision has come to life thanks to Bryce and his crew. The end result completely exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier. We would not hesitate to hire Black Tree again and would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Thank you for helping us create the deck of our dreams.

“We renovated the entire main floor of our house and the upstairs hallway and main bathroom. This was a major project for us with a large budget and we needed the right company

Bryce was recommended to us by a friend and we hired him after interviewing 4 other contractors. The main reason we hired him is that we really genuinely liked him and he understood what we wanted from our home when the project was done. As this was a large project for us, we appreciated that Bryce not only saw our vision but he could also see our vision of not going completely over budget! And of course, we were going to be working together for a few months so it was important to us that we had someone we could trust implicitly and enjoyed their presence in our home!!

Bryce was conscious and considerate of our feelings all the way through the project and wanted to ensure we were happy all along the way! He worked hard, made excellent suggestions and coordinated the job well. Bryce and his team also cleaned up each day so we could live in our house during the renovation….thank you! We are THRILLED with the outcome! Some of our pictures are featured on Blacktree’s page already and for us, this has been a major transformation.

We really appreciated that Bryce did much of the work himself, which had him on-site almost everyday making sure everything went to plan, and of course taking out some of the costs of hiring outside trades. He is very skilled and extremely easy to deal with! We also really appreciate all of the very impressive, professional presentations that Blacktree puts together for it’s clients. From proposals to a project binder to a final binder summarizing all costs and details with manuals and such in one convenient, professional book. Love it! These personal and professional touches really set them apart from other firms.

Now we are done, and still feel that Bryce is only an email or text away to follow-up if necessary. Our relationship and happiness means a lot to them and it shows. We look forward to hiring Blacktree again someday and will tell our friends about them!

“Had the pleasure of working with Bryce and his team on a small home renovation. It is refreshing to see a contractor who is actually swings a hammer and wants to provide the best for his client within their budget and requirements. We’ve recommended Bryce for a number of projects, and will do so again.”

“Black Tree constructed a deck using composite material which has turned out be a wonderful addition to the house and property. They were professional at all times, took on a great challenge, and finished the job on time and under budget.”

“We had them level our floor, install hardwood, repair stairs, drywall, and window trim and baseboard. The work was exceptional and the end result spectacular . . . I would highly recommend Black Tree Developments Ltd.”

“This letter is testament to the outstanding job Black Tree Developments did in the expansion of the rear deck on our property. They were, in fact, referred to me by another contractor. Their quotation was extremely competitive and the work was completed ahead of schedule, which was surprising given the less than desirable weather conditions throughout. Bryce and company were a pleasure to have around, had excellent advice on cost saving measures (which was a first for us), completed the works exactly as requested and we even incorporated his ideas for the 12’ x 12’ pergola. My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend Black Tree Developments”

“In 2013 BlackTree Development redid our large and challenging flat roof. We had leaking and pooling problems for years, despite repairs from other companies. Bryce McPherson stripped the roof to the shiplap and created a frame with enough grade to allow water to run off into a series of drains, either rebuilt or new. Since then we have not even had the smallest pool of water on the roof. We would recommend BlackTree for your renovation project.”

“As a widowed senior living alone, I wasn’t keen on the disruption of building a new full guest bathroom in an existing small storage space. Bryce’s innovative skills produced exactly what I had envisioned. The job was completed in good time with minimum inconvenience in very bad weather. Most important was his engagement of excellent tradesmen and constant availability for my input. An interim statement invoice of costs was helpful and the final bill was reasonable and within my budget allowance. On completion I received an impressive ring manual containing photos of the building process, permits, product manuals for all electrical , plumbing and decorative fixtures plus info on all trades people involved. I do not hesitate in recommending Black Tree and will engage them in the future.”

“Black Tree Developments made my renovation project easy on me as a homeowner. Bryce and his crew really understood the job and prioritized everything perfectly. The completed project is exactly what we wanted if not better. They continually demonstrated expert knowledge of home building, client management, and project budgeting. All workers were extremely approachable, respectful, and professional. They showed up when they said and clearly communicated at every stage. Black Tree is no “home handyman” business – they are a proficient operation that gets the job done right. I highly recommend Black Tree Developments for any home building or renovation project you have.”

“These guys are great!  They showed up exactly on time, did a great job, were very professional, and best of all, billed for the amount they said they would, no surprises.  Would I recommend them, you bet!”

“Aside from the fact that they did an amazing job of our hot tub project, what really impressed us is that they arrived on time, and finished the job when they said they were going to for the price we had agreed on. No delays and No surprises. We wouldn’t think twice about hiring them again or recommending them to friends and family.”

“I could not have gotten through this process without Bryce.   The logistics and formalities were extremely daunting. But any time I had to deal with officials or engineers or inspectors, I wasn’t worried because I knew Bryce would be there with his expertise and experience.  His technical knowledge and attention to detail also gave me a lot of confidence.  I could be creative and break free of a lot of design limitations knowing that he would be analysing my ideas and letting me know which ones would work out best and why.  If you want to build a cutting edge energy efficient home that’s built with quality and care, then I would recommend you hire Black Tree.”
