I write this letter in recommendation of D Barrette Enterprise Inc. as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with Daniel on the renovation of my condo.
I can recommend him highly and without reservation.
Throughout the course of the renovation, Mr. Barrette was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale of cost of out project. He was absolutely clear in his record keeping and time log. He chose and managed his sub-contractors well.
Our job was done with care and precision. The bulkhead in the kitchen, the master closet shelving was designed and executed so lovely.
In addition he is extremely clean and tidy in the workplace. He and his workers never left the job site in disarray. He vacuumed all drywall dust daily.
The only complexity in working with Mr. Barrette is that, as he himself will tell you, good work takes time to complete.
Patience is required when you work with a perfectionist. Although our project took time to complete, I think we have a wonderful outcome and a work of art.
As a professional contractor, he carries all necessary tools for the job at hand, including the clean up process. This was absolutely the best part he actually removed all the construction debris and brought his own shop vac and bucket and mop! The new bathroom he built in our basement is absolutely gorgeous. We have shown it to all who enter our house.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend him to any who are in need of his services. I found him to be trustworthy, on time, priced reasonably, brings the job in on time and money as well as an overall likeable individual easy to get along with.
At the end of each day, Dan was very meticulous in making sure the job site was tidied up and safe. In addition, he has stuck to his quote price which is alway much appreciated.
We were referred to Dan via the local Home Hardware when shopping for bathroom vanities. He has also done a lot of work for the local MS Society in making modifications to bathrooms to cater to people with disabilities. I know they are also most satisfied with his efforts.
I have always said that people who are good with their hands will always be busy. So it is of no surprise to me that Dan has been very active lately with home renovations. I have no hesitation to recommend him when considering any sort of renovation work.
Dan arranged for removal of our original flooring and kitchen and coordinated their replacement. In addition, he removed the stippling from all ceilings and restored them to their original smooth finish. Dan also arranged and supervised installation of crown moulding in all rooms, and the necessary electrical changes we made. Mr. Barrette also replaced baseboards and painted the entire space as well. His work with tile and as a painter is outstanding.
This work has been carried out to our complete satisfaction. The project was completed within the agreed budget. Mr. Barrette’s attention to detail and quality of finish are excellent. He is a cheerful, trustworthy person to work with and has a solid practical grasp of the renovation process.
We unreservedly recommend Dan for renovation or new construction projects, and would be happy to provide further details on request.

Mr. Barrette gave good advice on the important details such as how to re-configure the plumbing and electrical utilities. We followed his recommendation and we are very pleased with the final results.
Mr. Barrette is a skilled tile setter, we installed 18″ x 36″ Italian tiles on the walls and floors. The installation was professional, tidy and aesthetically pleasing. It appears Mr. Barrette has the capacity to set any type of tile.
Finally and most importantly; Mr. Barrette understands the modern design elements needed to achieve a “high end” look. If you are looking for a true professional to complete your bathroom or kitchen renovation l would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Barrette.
