Tidman Construction is a family run business and it shows in the care you get before, during and after the build

During our very first meeting with Andrew Tidman of Tidman Construction at our newly purchased property, we were impressed by his enthusiasm and positive attitude. He was genuinely excited by the opportunity to build a home for us on our land and he assured us that the construction project would be an enjoyable, satisfying experience. Andrew and the rest of the Tidman team more than delivered on this promise. They provided us with a beautiful home that was built to a very high standard and they maintained their enthusiasm for the project throughout its completion.

Andrew’s lifetime of experience in custom-home construction, his commitment to excellence and the longstanding reputation of the Tidman company were tremendous advantages for us. Andrew and his colleague, Vicki, were fantastic help during the design phase. They guided us through the selection of the fittings, fixtures and finishing and ensured that we chose appropriate quality materials, were faithful to the design style and kept within budget. We also felt that merchants and suppliers had great respect for Andrew and were proud to be associated with the Tidman brand.

When we visited the site during construction, the tradesmen and construction personnel, seemed highly competent, professional and customer focused. Again, I detected a sense of pride from the building crew to be part of a Tidman project. Subsequent to moving into our home we had visitors with interior design experience who remarked positively on the quality of the workmanship in our home.

We were working outside of the country during the design and construction of our home. Andrew and the team were great at keeping us informed on progress through telephone calls, a photo blog and later a video of the completed home. Our distance from the project required us to place our trust in the Tidman team. We feel that this trust was amply rewarded. We had and have full faith in the integrity of the Tidman team. From our own experience, we feel that the strong reputation of Tidman Construction is fully deserved and is recognized and admired by other people in the industry. We would not hesitate to recommend Tidman Construction to anyone wishing to build their dream home. The support does not end once the house is finished. Tidman Construction is a family run business and it shows in the care you get before, during and after the build.

If we were to ever build again in the area, we would definitely use Tidman to build for us. - Helen and Paul

"...Home of our dreams..."

"We recently moved into our Tidman built home in North Saanich and love it. Building a new home from a distance can be daunting but it turned out to be a positive experience thanks to Andrew and his team.

Tidman guided us with lot selection, the design process and ultimately building the home of our dreams. Tidman Group’s commitment to client service and quality are top notch." – June and Barry

“… An amazing level of attention and care…”

"Our family recently relocated to Vancouver Island where we found a lovely home near Willows Beach. At the time of buying it had everything, including a nearly original kitchen from 1948! Needless to say, we needed it to be redone.

By way of recommendation, we got in touch with Andrew at Tidman Construction, and were impressed with the diligence and interest shown to our renovation. Even before taking possession, everyone involved promptly got down to the necessary groundwork to proceed.

Andrew and his team provided an amazing level of attention and care, even though our renovation seemed modest by some standards. That being said, we had access to the Group's connections and relationships with local trades and businesses. Definitely a joyful and collaborative process. Thank you so much to everyone! Especially Dan! We absolutely love our kitchen for its utility and beauty, such a pleasure to have! Absolutely would not hesitate to recommend or use them in the future." – Aaron and Hansi and family

“…Ho-hum house to dream home…”

“For us to say that the finished product is magnificent would be an understatement! Together, we took a ho-hum house and built it into our dream home. Thank you!" – Bev and Bruce

"…fabulous design ideas…"

“Tidman Construction oversaw the long distance renovations on our beautiful new home in Cordova Bay. They consulted with us on every detail via email and phone calls, giving us fabulous design ideas that fit perfectly with what we envisioned. They kept things on schedule and within budget. We highly recommend Tidman Construction.” – Pat

"…truly a fun process…"

“The Tidman's brought great value to our renovation—starting with our designer's plans and showing us how to get the most value for the money, which gave us the creative impact we looked for while managing to significantly reduce the original quotes. Their organizational skills were a delight: we knew where we were, where our budget was, and what remained to be done throughout the project. Our renovation was on time, better than on budget and truly a fun process throughout due to their diligent attention to all details (and attention to us) throughout. No surprise headaches and excellent workmanship. Thanks Andrew.” – Mary Ann/Erik B.

"…professionalism and guidance…"

“Tidman Construction built our custom home in 2010.  We were very pleased with the professionalism and guidance provided through every step of the process. Andrew Tidman was a big reason as to why we completed on time and on budget!  Andrew ensured we were “one step ahead” of the trades in our final decision making; and provided pros and cons of different products at different price points in the material selection process. We would recommend Tidman Construction to anyone looking to build a home.” – Jane and Tyler

"…would definitely consider another Tidman project…"

“We purchased a Tidman home two years ago and have been completely satisfied with the product. It is quality home that is extremely well built. Every detail was considered and we have not had a single problem or complaint. We would definitely consider another Tidman project in the future… If we ever leave this one!” – Griff

"…quality craftsmanship…"

"It has been a pleasure to work with a group that provided us with excellent advice and options on our deck replacement project. Work was completed on time, on budget and, most importantly, with quality craftsmanship. We have no hesitation in recommending Tidman Construction for large or small projects." – Hank

"…exceeding our expectations…"

“From inception to completion Tidman Construction transformed our office into a space exceeding our expectations.  We continue to receive praise on the finished product thanks to the vision and dedication of Tidman Construction.” – Erin
