Professional and Helpful from Start to Finish

After talking to a number of restoration and renovation contractors, we hired Blue Ocean Construction to do some restoration work related to some old water damage. Mike was very helpful from the first phone call and each site visit with advice and no sales pressure – that and the professionalism he demonstrated convinced us to choose BOC. His team (Ron, Evan, and Dean) were straightforward and hardworking – they were there when they said they would be, got the work done smartly and cleaned up each day. When the job was done (on budget and on schedule) the finished work blended in perfectly.

Kitchen renovation

I hired Ben Brzovic 2 years ago to do my bathroom renovation and was very impressed by his skills, attention to details, craftsmanship and professionalism.
When it was time to renovate my kitchen, I didn't hesitate a second to contact him again.
Ben, exceeded my expectation and once again did an amazing job.
I would highly recommend Ben to anyone.

Basement Finished

We couldn't be more happy with the work done by Blue Ocean Construction. Mike and his team consulted us on every step of the project -- planning, obtaining permits, construction, and finishing. The job was completed to a high standard of quality. They were quick to deal with any issues that came up during the project. Overall, Blue Ocean Construction showed true professionalism in every aspect of the job.

Bathroom Renovation

Project manager Ron Cobb and his team made our bathroom renovation a breeze. The whole team was professional, friendly, courteous and efficient. Every day's work schedule was explained in advance, and at the end of each day the site was left clean. I also can't say enough good things about Ron's "right hand man", Evan, who was extremely cooperative about accommodating our needs and requests. Nothing ever seemed to faze him, and the quality of his work was impeccable.

Right from the start someone was here working every day, and the job was completed within the promised four weeks ... on time and on budget. We're very pleased with the job!

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

Blue Ocean Construction Ltd., under the direction of Mike Merakian, was responsible for the transformation of my small flat-roofed cottage into a two storey house of great character, individuality and charm. I have now enjoyed this place for some twenty years, and I can truthfully say that I have heard nothing but very positive comments from visitors concerning the changes that were made.

It was always a pleasure to work with Mr. Merakian and his crew, and given my own experience, I would not hesitate to recommend Blue Ocean Construction, without reservation, to anyone contemplating the building of a new house, or the renovation of an existing dwelling.

Bathroom Renovation

I need to let you know how pleased I am with the workmanship of Ben of Blue Ocean Construction Inc., a Service Provider for Home Depot Installations. He did the renovations in my 2 bathrooms; all I can say is WOW! Right from the start to the finish, his services were impeccable! I felt comfortable and confident with Ben and his team while they were working in my home, which they made liveable during the process. He kept me informed, was always clean and on time. Ben will be doing my kitchen renovations in the next couple of weeks and look forward to working with Ben again. I
