Our process takes the stress out of planning your renovation or home building project.


Renovating a home or building a custom home can be stressful and time-consuming. With our customer-focused approach to everything we do, our team at Serenity Construction & Design takes the time to ensure you are well-versed in the project and understand what you can expect throughout the process.

Our process has been developed and refined over many years in the construction industry, and we’ve come to find that a fixed-cost, up-front process with our customers is the most effective approach to help build trust, ensure a streamlined construction timeline, and deliver a high-quality product that you will love.

Phase One:

We meet with you at your home to discuss your needs and the design possibilities of your home or property.

Serenity takes site measurements and pictures for the purpose of estimating and design.

Serenity provides approximate pricing based on the preliminary meeting to determine and advise on the scope of work needed.

Phase Two:

We return to your home with an itemized, detailed scope of work and initial conceptual design. Changes are made at this time.

Construction Drawings are made and a finalized scope of work is agreed upon.

The next step is to meet with our Designer to choose all finishing materials. Including tile, flooring, lighting, cabinetry and all other finishes. Once selected and approved, these details are included within the contract and Serenity orders everything and handles all deliveries.

Phase Three:

With final approval and signing of the Construction Contract, we have a “kick-off’ meeting at your home with our Project Manager to review the design and timeline of construction.

Once Building permits (if required) are applied for and approved, we are ready to begin. Our team will coordinate every aspect of the project, in-cluding all sub-trades, material ordering and deliveries, and all other de-tails of the build/renovation.

Upon Completion of the Project, Serenity meets with you for the final inspection to ensure your complete satisfaction with our services and your two year service and home warranty goes into effect.

We highly recommend Serenity Contracting! We used them to renovate our basement and we are so thrilled! They were very receptive to all our ideas and dreams for our basement space and developed a great plan that incorporated everything we wanted. Throughout the whole process they were always receptive to our questions and any requests we made, had really great and respectful work crews and trades, and it was high quality workmanship and beautiful finishing work! They completed the project within the timeline and budget they provided. Within days of reclaiming our basement space it completely changed the way we live in our home! We cannot believe how beautiful and functional our basement is thanks to Serenity Contracting!

Grant and his team from Serenity have completed 2 projects for us thus far - a basement development in
2013 and a second floor addition in 2021. Grant's responsiveness, reliability, organization and calm
demeanor make him very easy to work with. We appreciate how hard Grant works to turn our ideas into
our ultimate reality. We would not hesitate to hire the Serenity Contracting team in the future.

We feel so honoured to have had the opportunity to work with Grant and everyone on the Serenity team on our major renovation project. The quirks and issues that come with renovating a 50 year old home were addressed in thoughtful and innovative ways. The end result of the work of several highly skilled and dedicated individuals is a home that we truly love. I cannot recommend the Serenity team enough!

One of the biggest challenges homeowners can have when looking for and working with contractors is the level of trust they have in that person/company. Trust that the contractor will do a good job, trust that they’re giving the right advice, trust that they have your best interests as their best interests. We would not hesitate to recommend Serenity because we trusted them with one of the largest investments we’ve made, our home and our dream and they delivered. I trust that Grant will do the same for the people we recommend him to in the future.
