Shane is the ONLY trades person I ever recommend and also that his network of trades people are the best we’ve ever had – that he surrounds himself with young tradesmen like himself: that are smart enough to know that it’s important to build solid reputations and clientele for being honest and extremely good at what they do. Shane is also the only person that has done work in my house that I didn’t have to touch-up or finish when he was done his job. Always happy to recommend his work.

We had used several contracting firms while doing extensive renovations on our 1912 Fernwood home. We found Shane Murray Carpentry in 2008 and have since engaged them to redo several exterior decks, fix exterior historical wood trim, and even to convert a commercial hair salon to office space in downtown Victoria. Shane and his crew have been professional, there have been no budget surprises, and they have been extremely responsive. Above all their work is of the highest quality, and I am happy to recommend Shane Murray Carpentry.

Thank you to Shane Murray Carpentry. We are extremely pleased with the renovation work done on our home. Shane and his team were both professional and reliable. Their craftsmanship exceeded our expectations. They followed up on commitments and most of all stayed within budget and kept to our tight timelines. We consider the project they completed for us a total success.

We enjoyed our first renovation with Shane so much we had him do three more: a detached studio, a dining room addition and a full bathroom renovation. He and his skillful crew were great to work with and tolerant of all my questions and changes. All the work was very well done, fairly priced and completed within a reasonable time frame. I have recommended Shane to lots of people and continue to do so.
