Summer Lane Finishing & John Routier always left us with an impression of the highest level of professionalism from initial estimates to final completion & clean-up. Renovations of heritage buildings are a very difficult task, especially where there is unknown older construction and very limited parking (Gastown). The job was completed on-time, on budget and looks better than the initial plans. All trade workers were exceptionally friendly, diligent and eager to please. The most impressive quality was John’s demonstrated managerial skills in scheduling and coordinating a large variety of different trades. We would not hesitate in using John again and/or highly recommending him to others.

John was extremely professional, polite and punctual. His employees were always on time and cleaned up afterwards. I was happy with the quality of his work and would recommend him to do renovation work for anybody.

John Routier demonstrated professionalism and attention to detail in directing my project. Summer Lane Finishing did a beautiful job restoring our Kensington Place Heritage unit (English Bay), with top notch craftsmanship and quality of work throughout. The restoration was done with patience and courtesy, and results were appropriate to a very high end unit. The entire renovation was completed in timely fashion, and Summer Lane’s (painters, tile artists, carpenters, cabinetry craftsmen, etc.) top of the line.

The result was state of the art……..I would be glad to personally speak with anyone interested in contracting with Summer Lane and John Routier.

Our experience with John was a positive one. He listened to what we wanted, but was able to use discernment and make suggestions that would benefit us and give us what we were looking for in the end. His work is of the highest quality and built to last. We appreciate how hard he worked to achieve the product we were looking for and had the man power and recourses to accomplish this. In the end, John has been, and will be our first choice when it comes to home renovations.
