Current Heating & Plumbing Ltd.

Client Testimonial

"I have worked with Paul in the past, on many projects. A first class carpenter, and a great guy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone."

Richard Sendall

Client Testimonial

"Hofmann Construction Ltd. performed a major upper floor renovation of our Maple Bay home that included remodeling the primary bedroom and ensuite along with remodeling and ensuite addition to an adjacent bedroom. The project presented challenges related to the provision of plumbing, heating and electrical infrastructure without impacting the main floor living areas. Great client focused people. Responsive to our needs. We found the quality of the work exceptional and particularly appreciated the attention to detail. All elements of the renovation integrated into the twenty year old home as if it was designed and built that way in the first place. They were budget conscious every step of the way and adapted to the supply chain issues encountered without allowing them to affect performance. We aree very pleased with the results."

The Marshalls

Client Testimonial

"We feel very fortunate to have worked with Paul and his team on our whole house renovation - both inside and out. Paul is clearly very passionate about his work which results in great craftsmanship and attention to detail. Paul and team have always been very helpful and accessible as well as solution oriented. When unexpected issues arose, including the pandemic, Paul always provided us with options and solutions that would both address the circumstances as well as meet our needs. With us being new to Vancouver Island and often out of town, we knew we could trust Paul to coordinate all aspects of the job, from obtaining permits, providing us with a designer, coordinating all trades as well as, personally doing the work himself. Paul is a knowledgeable man with many talents and it is a pleasure to highly recommend him and his team. The Marshalls"

Anne & Chris

Client Testimonial

"Hofmann Construction was hired as the contractor to renovate and add to the lower level of our home. We were so impressed with our experience that we engaged them to build a second residence and swimming pool on our property. Paul and his team are professional, responsive, and polite. We were appraised of any issues as they arose and were consulted on a regular basis. We appreciated Paul’s ability to problem solve and generate excellent solutions when encountering a challenge. The workmanship and attention to detail provided by Hofmann Construction are second to none. The entire team has an incredible work ethic and we enjoyed having them around during the construction as they are mindful and respectful of our family. Our children especially loved watching the progress and engaging with the team. It is a leap of faith to engage a contractor and entrust them to build your vision on budget, on schedule, and with beautiful craftsmanship. Paul and his team delivered exceptional results and we loved working with them. They will be our top choice of builders for our future plans."

David Lewis

Client Testimonial

"Always a very enjoyable experience working with Paul and his crews. Paul pays very close attention to the finer details that create an highly efficient home, whether it is new construction or a renovation. Paul goes the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction and I would highly recommend Hofmann Construction for any upcoming projects that you may be considering."

Fred & Clare

Client Testimonial

"We had a 1967 house that had some questionable work done to it prior to our purchasing it. We knew we needed repair work and had a few ideas to improve the layout of the home, but had no idea where to start. Once Paul became involved he took us through the process step by step. He helped us to work with the architect to produce a practical and esthetic design. For the first and last months of the renovations, we were living in the house, and I found the workers very respectful in that they warned us of when and where they would be working, and kept traffic areas safe. Throughout the project we discussed the financial status biweekly which allowed us to know exactly what had been spent, what was owing, and where we were going. We also came onto the site twice a week to see the work done, discuss the next steps and make more decisions! I always felt that there was a spirit of collaboration. We were given the options, the costs and the pros and cons, so that we were involved in every step. All in all, it was a very positive and exciting project. We are now in the house and are so pleased with the final outcome. We are enjoying the open plan, the options for rental configuration, and the efficiency of the living space."

Wolfgang & Sibylle

Central Saanich New Build

"Paul Hofmann was hired as the contractor to build our studio/office. The communication around any decisions regarding the project was always excellent. Paul acquired at least 2 or 3 estimates for all sub-contractors and explained the different options clearly. His knowledge, workmanship, and quality of building exceeded our expectations. He delivered everything on time and within the budget. We can highly recommend Paul for any building project."


Client Testimonial

"Paul Hoffman Construction completed a 3-tiered 1200 sq. ft. Ipe deck for us this fall (2013). The deck overlooks a small lake just outside Victoria, BC. It includes a thru deck tree, hot tub area, small bistro sitting area, and a larger BBQ entertainment area. We are extremely pleased with the results. Paul, Josh and crew demonstrated the highest degree of professionalism throughout this project. Their knowledge and attention to detail was outstanding. The particularly dense Ipe harwood is challenging to work with requiring extra skill, quality tools and superb craftsmanship. Every aspect of the project was addressed with care and integrity. We would not hesitate to recommend this exceptionally hardworking firm to anyone."

Carly Scholze Interiors

Client Testimonial

"As a Designer, I have worked with many contractors, the good and the not so good. It has been an absolute pleasure of mine working with Paul & his construction team! Paul has an in-depth knowledge of construction and quality workmanship. Paul's work ethic, positive attitude, and most importantly attention to detail; made my job as a Designer a lot easier! Most importantly his clients know they can trust him and his team to get the job done properly and in a timely manner."

Michael Hovey

Client Testimonial

"I had the pleasure of working with Hofmann Construction on several projects. It was good to see quality projects with high level of detail finish on time with happy customers."

Peter & Sarah

Client Testimonial

"Transparent, timely, professional and fair! That was our experience with Paul and his team during our downtown condo renovation which included a remodelled entrance way, new kitchen, TV room and a remodelled living / dining area. Great problem solvers and a good selection of quality tradespeople to call on. All of this work was done during covid and Paul and his team were considerate of others and took appropriate precautions while doing the work and keeping things on track. We have recommended Paul to our friends and would definitely call on him again for further work. What more could you ask for?"


Client Testimonial

"Paul Hofmann Construction completed a major renovation to our home. We could not have been more pleased with the results. Undergoing a renovation is not easy however, Paul's organizational skills made the whole project flow perfectly. Paul and Josh proved that they are very hardworking, knowledgable, and perfectly capable of completing any construction job they undertake."

Nadine Marshall

Alix and Gordon Noble

Client Testimonial

"We had our deck built by Paul Hofmann Carpentry in 2012. We love the result..the deck is absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations. We have had nothing but compliments from family, friends and even complete strangers. The stain that Paul recommended was just perfect and the wood that he chose is first rate. The finished deck has definitely added value to our home."

Outline Home Design

Client Testonial

"Paul Hofmann Construction has been the builder of a number of our designs. Their attention to detail and quality craftsmanship have ensured each project has been a total success! He is willing to work with us before construction begins to clearly define all aspects of the build; quite often we are encouraged to find detailed solutions to problems before they arise. Paul has always taken a hands on approach to working with our design team to confirm that what we plan he can construct in the most efficient manor and for the long term benefit of the client. It is a pleasure to work with Paul Hofmann Carpentry and we highly recommend Paul to our clients."


Client Testimonial

"Hiring a contractor for the first time is a process fraught with peril. Having said that, hiring Paul Hofmann Construction for our project could not have been a better decision. From our first meeting through to the completion of our deck, Paul and his team were the very definition of professional. The work is outstanding and is the product of craftsmen, not builders. Every aspect of the job; design, the permit, materials choice, hardware, sub-contractors, and the site itself, were addressed. The stress and concern we were prepared to experience simply did not arise. We were briefed on a daily basis, and there were no surprises. We could not be happier with the finished product and the process, and would recommend Paul to anyone searching for a contractor with integrity and skill."


Client Testimonial

"PHC put together an estimate and a plan and energetically carried it out, on time and on budget. He employed good, honest and knowledgeable employees and very good sub-contractors. He did not quibble about rectifying any of the small deficiencies at the end of the job. Paul is not inexpensive but he does what he sets out to do, has a bit of a mania for doing things right and is always pleasant to deal with. Will use again if I have a suitable project."

Vera & Maxim

Oak Bay Ipe Deck

"We would highly recommend Paul Hofmann and Josh McCulloch! They recently completed our new deck and we are very happy with the result. The job was difficult, as our previous contractor (had to be fired) did not follow the proper installation of Ipe planks and did a lot of damage to the hardwood. Paul and Josh had to fix many mistakes made by the previous contractor and they carried out the work in a truly professional way, taking no shortcuts, being satisfied only with the best craftsmanship. They work quickly, efficiently, and meticulously. They did an excellent carpentry job and went above and beyond what was expected. Paul and Josh are very knowledgeable, experienced, and confident in all aspects of their work and we are thrilled with the outcome. It is always nice to interact with these very polite, pleasant, and respectful individuals."

Hugh Mitchell

Client Testimonial

"We had been contemplating a new entrance to our house for a number of years. We had spoken to a number of companies but we really didn't feel good about the design ideas. We were referred to Paul by his brother who was doing landscaping for us. Paul recognized the difficulty of getting the right design for the entrance way and contacted another fellow who came over and we had a good discussion and untimately decided on a very different design than we had been contemplating. We are very happy with the result. Paul and his crew were very respectful and considerate. A lot of preparation work was done off site and this lessened the disruption. Paul is not the cheapest contractor, but the quality of the work is top notch. Everything was completed to our satisfaction within the time frame promised. We have had many compliments on the addition and we would not hesitate to hine this company again."


Client Testimonial

"My husband found Paul Hofmann through the Internet when we were researching outdoor living space ideas. We highly recommend him and his team. What drew us to consult with Paul was the idea of an off-site construction for pergolas. The thought of not having to hear chain saws and hammers for days on end was quite appealing. We were also very impressed with the look of the projects he had completed and the quality of the materials he used. When Paul came to our house for the consultation he was on time, very polite and informative. He provided options and helped us price out the best materials for our budget. His estimate of work came in relatively close to projected, and the difference in price was mostly related to changes in cost with the secondary project (excavation and widening of existing desk space, and laying of cement pavers) and not due to cost over-runs on his part at all. Each day he and his team were on-site, they were courteous, respectful and left the site cleaner then when they arrived; which was quite a challenge as the secondary project was pretty muddy! Through his creative design and attention to detail, our back yard now has some serious wow factor!"

Jayne & Allen

Lands End Ipe Deck Client Testimonial

"We felt ourselves really fortunate having the opportunity of working with Paul Hofmann and Josh McCulloch to help us bring our deck project to such a success! They brought to the job site a very high level of professionalism, knowledge, skill and integrity. Their communication on all levels was always open and honest. Any and all issues were always brought to our attention, our input and our ideas were heard and time taken to ensure we understood and were comfortable with the solution. Their work ethic far exceeded our expectations."

Meade Design Group

Client Testimonial

"Working with Paul Hofmann has been a game changing for Meade Design Group. We have had the pleasure of working with Hofmann Construction many times. Paul’s attention to detail, involvement on the projects, his coordination and communication skills, and the quality of his trades are incredible to work with. As in any project, sometimes issues arise and my favorite part of working with Paul is his problem solving skills and willingness to find the best solution."

E Wyatt

Client Testimonial

"Paul and his team were wonderful to work with! They are very personable, happy to answer any questions and their workmanship is second to none! I know that we wouldn't have been happy with anyone else doing the job. Can't wait until we are able to call them back to do another project! By far the best!"

Andrew Mills

Client Testimonial

"I hired Paul Hofmann Construction to perform carpentry work on a duplex renovation in which the building was lifted off its foundation, the interior completely gutted and was reframed including structural upgrades. I found Paul and his whole crew to be extremely professional in their dealings with me acting as general contractor and with other trades working on the site. There were able to effectively communicate timelines for different stage of completion and collaborated with other trades to do the best job possible. I am very satisfied with the overall finished product and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again."

Michael H.

Client Testimonial

"Great company and they have a good handle on estimating, preventing any disasters half way through the project"


Client Testimonial

"We really enjoyed working with Paul and his team in building our ipe wood deck. Paul is extremely professional and caring. The team's attention to detail was exemplary - they did not just "measure twice and cut once" but continually checked and rechecked their work. They had great ideas to add to the project and worked very well together. They have the finest tools, which were needed for this very hard wood. The result was precision craftsmanship - more like cabinetry than decking - very impressive. Paul Hoffman Construction is an exceptional company. We would definitely use them again!"


Client Testimonial

"I worked with Paul and his wife Laura in the fall and winter of 2013 and cannot speak highly enough of their business and professionalism. They are extremely responsive to suggestions, polite, great communicators, and treat their team well. The projects I've seen from PHC are of high calibre and I would recommend them without hesitation."

Daniel Johston

Client Testimonial

"We have been working with Paul and his team for several years now, supplying cabinetry for many of his projects. His attention to detail, precision, and organisation are just a few of the reasons that we love working with him. We have no hesitation in recommending Paul for any construction or renovation project! We look forward to working on many more projects together in the coming years."


Client Testimonial

"Paul and his team did an amazing job renovating and insulating our home! Over 9 months, they transformed our 1970's split level from a ugly, neglected and inefficient home to one that is not only comfortable all year but also a pleasure to cook in and a joy to come home to. Paul has extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of renovation, is a phenomenal leader and mentor to his employees and completed all work to an exceptionally high level. We relied on Paul to plan and coordinate many of the building envelope upgrades and were very impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. Our original energy usage before Paul Hofmann Construction started was 216 GJ/year. It was lowered to 54 GJ/year (which is well below the 85 GJ/year energy usage of a new house) after the work was complete. This phenomenal increase in efficiency would not have been possible if not for the high level of collaboration Paul brings to the job, his attention to detail and excellent ability to source and coordinate subcontractors."

David & Shelley

Oak Bay Renovation

"Paul Hofmann Carpentry was one of several contractors we selected to interview when we were ready to undertake our home renovation. We were impressed right from the start. From the onset of our project, Paul was completely organized, professional and somehow made the project flow every single day. Trades were lined up accordingly, well in advance. They listened to our ideas and managed to exceed our expectations with some really great, creative ideas. We were impressed with the incredible skill, talent and work ethic each of the fellows showed every day. Paul and Josh solved any issues that arose without ever stopping the job or leaving us in a lurch, basically they owned the project and took responsibility from beginning to end. Our finished home is a beautiful statement of their hard work and knowledge. That is something we have come to appreciate more after talking to people who have endured reno nightmares. In summary, Paul Hofmann Carpentry is a company that we would highly recommend to anyone undertaking a small or large project."

Client Testimonial

"Paul and his very competent crew created an amazing new kitchen for us in our 1907 Maclure house. The large room was stripped right back to the studs, the floor levelled, all new plumbing and wiring installed, and bespoke cabinets, large island and pantry unit created and installed. Due to the age of the house, there were many challenges which Paul and his crew overcame with ease. We could not be happier with the results and continue to enjoy our very busy and lively kitchen! Pictures of the completed kitchen are available in the December 2019 YAM magazine."
