Before & After Construction & Renovation Projects
The William Standen Way
There are many facets involved in planning a home renovation, whether it is an addition, a kitchen, bathroom or to transform your entire home. A renovation begins with the meticulous design details, to the execution of that plan including re-locating load points, removal of walls, re-locating plumbing and electrical, framing new walls and the delivery and installation cabinetry, furniture, artwork and all of the home goods that make up each room. William Standen Co. handles the strategic planning, scheduling, and execution of all construction staff and trades so that you only ever have to deal with one company, from design to completion of your renovation. Experience the William Standen way with our in-house labourers, rough carpenters, finish carpenters, flooring and tile installers. All details are handled in-house, making communications a breeze.
Designing your dream home, whether you’re transforming an existing structure into your perfect retirement home, or building new, requires an enormous amount of attention to detail. Details that need to be worked out long before construction begins to ensure that your dream space fully functions not only for your needs, but meets building codes and regulations. Working with William Standen Co. means that the detailed planning of your whole home remodel is enjoyable, less worrisome and that the little things that make the difference are accounted for.

Love where you live is a saying we hear often. Thanks to your talents and excellent taste for quality, we are so very proud of this. How fortunate we are to have this very combination in our own backyard. William Standen Co. is the perfect scenario. The design team working harmoniously with the construction team. It truly could not have been any better. Be proud of what you do – you are simply the best. Thank you, it has been a pleasure.
We are LOVING our new home. The layout has allowed for many parties already. I have never considered myself an entertainer but our new home is perfect for any occasion we have held. Someone told me recently that they couldn't understand why we would hire a designer but once they toured our home and saw the attention to even the smallest of details they were really impressed. My brother-in-law asked me if there was anything I would change now that we are living in the home. I told him without hesitation, ‘No! I love it all!’ We really want to express to you that we appreciate all your help with this project.
From start to finish, the renovation was well managed. The quality of the products is excellent and we are beyond pleased with the finished product. The new kitchen design is a pleasure to cook in. Everything is easy to access. It is also a very comfortable space to hang out. Alannah and Patrick were easy to work with and very helpful from day one. All team members working on the reno were professional and respectful.
