  • Thanks for a great job on our new deck and timberlite pergola. It has really made our back yard more inviting and usable. Everyone who has seen it has been very impressed with the look and quality of the workmanship. Your crew did a fantastic job and completed it within our schedule and budget. We will definitely be in touch the next time we have construction project we want to tackle. Thanks

  • VanAm Construction was hired to manage our project when we built a new church in Tintern, ON. Dave's professionalism allowed us to build a beautiful facility on budget and on time. As building committee, we were very satisfied with VanAm Construction's services.

  • Our 3-bay detached garage...is what we envisioned and more, with a loft that is multifunctional with lots of storage. The staff was courteous and conscientious, working with us as we made changes, and still delivered the project on time and on budget.

  • Dave and his crew have done two upper level bathroom renovations (main bath and master bath), as well as two-level decks in our backyard.

    The bathroom renovations went without a hitch—both bathrooms were totally gutted and redone in preparation for the plumbing and fixtures. Care was taken to protect the surrounding areas and any “second thought” changes we had during the course of construction were received graciously and accommodated. Dave, or Chris, his Supervisor, discussed on a daily basis, which aspect of the job would be completed each day. The crew always arrived at their indicated time and clean-up was always done before they quit for the day.

    The cedar decks, have been a source of pleasure this summer. Dave worked on presenting a number of options and pricing before we started. In spite of some nasty weather in the early spring and some gruelling conditions, which they had to deal with in the backyard, the decks were completed in a timely manner and look wonderful.

    The professionalism of Dave Vanam Inc. is evident in the manner in which his crew conducts themselves and completes their jobs. They treated the jobs in our home, as if it were their home.

    It is with sincerity that I HIGHLY recommend Dave Vanam Inc. as a contractor with integrity and experience.

  • After over a year of frustration awaiting action from the company I originally contracted to supply & install my patio roof kit my hope for completion was running out. Discovering Van Am’s extensive experience with a similar roof product made me all the more confident you were the right people to work with. You & your concrete piers & kit installation teams’ willingness to jump in on short notice to finish the job before winter set in were very much appreciated. If asked by any potential new customers, I will gladly highly recommend you & all of your very friendly staff who came prepared to do their jobs professionally, with all the right knowledge & tools, including integrity, respect, great sense of humour & lots of smiles! I give thanks to You, Meagan, Ed & Nathan every time I enjoy the benefits of your handiwork! Respectfully,

  • We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. Rodney and I are very pleased with the 2 decks and patio cover you built for us. We are very pleased with the work your employees did. I have nothing but praise for them. I don't think that we have seen a group of guys get along as well as they did. They all knew exactly what their jobs were and they all did them very well. You should be very proud of them all. We have received many complements on the work they did for us. I would happily recommend VanAm Construction to anybody.

  • Today we had a Natural Light Patio Cover installed on the back of our house by VANAM construction.

    The cover blocks heat and UV rays but let's the light shine through. Our patio is so much more enjoyable with out the heat and sun blazing down on us.

    Ed and Jake, employees of VANAM are second to none in quality workmanship. They did an exceptional job for us VanAmConstruction.com
