"Ernie, a site-supervisor who has been working for 35 years, has been a lifesaver. Of course, building from scratch is a huge project with lots of worries, but Ernie has helped make it all work out well. He is personable, knowledgeable, has valuable experience in many trades and is tremendously conscientious in arranging and
supervising all the work. It is thanks to Ernie's site supervision that building a new house, an experience some people describe as a nightmare, has resulted in a sweet dream-the beautiful home we had envisioned. Thanks to all at Burke Builders."

"We contracted Burke Builders to renovate our home. The renovation included an attached garage, family room over thegarage, and a new kitchen.
We are very satisfied with the results of the renovation. Clarence Burke and his staff were very professional, knowledgeable, and attentive to our needs and requests.
Burke Builders came within the budget that was quoted. We have recommended them to our friends and family and would not hesitate to hire Burke Builders for any future renovations.
We love our new space and have received many compliments on the new family room and kitchen."
Franco and Luisa Imbrogno, North Mount Pleasant
"When it came to our renovation, we had a very good idea of what we wanted, and we sought a builder we felt could make our vision happen. After viewing some of their open houses and seeing the work up close, we felt that Burke Builders was the best choice for us. After meeting and discussing our ideas with Clarence, the plans that were returned were exactly what we envisioned, and were in the budget that we discussed. Throughout the project, Burke Builders was easy to contact, questions and concerns were addressed immediately, and we were kept well apprised of the schedule and when we needed to make decisions on materials.
The architect, designer, landscaper, and trades used on the project were all a joy to work with, and the quality of work was top notch, especially the cabinetry. Burke Builders' professionalism and attention to our project made us feel like we were their most important client at all times and we couldn't be happier with the final product! We have already recommended them to several friends contemplating renovations and we would look forward to working with them again in the future."
Denise Morin and Ryan Pedersen, Brentwood
"We have contracted with Burke Builders for two renovation projects on two different homes, having heard of their quality work originally through word of mouth. The first project was a complete basement renovation on a 1970's house. When we decided on a three-storey addition and renovation to a 1912 Victorian home, we called Burke Builders without even going to other contractors. We were confident that they could handle well all of the challenges the old home would present to us. In the end, the home retains its original character despite modernizations. From the exterior, you would never know there had been an extension.
Because of the fine work they did on our project and with our recommendation, at least five other neighbours and friends have used Burke Builders for small projects through to complete restorations and/or renovations. Our home won an Award of Excellence for Burke Builders and at least two of the homes where we gave recommendations have been listed as finalists for this year's awards."
Darlene Rogers and Richard Velhat, Elbow Park
"When we decided to do a major renovation on our 1940's home, we knew that we needed to find someone who had superior expertise, high standards of quality and an ability to manage around the unexpected challenges often found in older homes. We also needed someone with a good sense of style and who insists on using high quality products to ensure lasting results, since we plan to live in our house for many years.
We are thrilled with the work that Clarence and his team have done. Our house was a challenge, but the results were excellent. All of the trades working on our home displayed professionalism and a pride in their work. We were always well informed of the project status and never felt that we were being given anything
but the very best service.
I have and will continue to recommend Burke Builders to others and intend to call on Clarence again for future work. There is great peace of mind knowing that your home is in good hands."
