“…Peace of mind, support and incredible workmanship”
My husband and I arrived in Victoria in May, 2011. We interviewed 5 of the most recommended contractors in the area to build our dream house. We decided upon Integrity builders after seeing all of the contractors work and evaluating their bids. We felt that their price was fair and we instinctively felt comfortable with Jarrett and Dave (The two principal project managers).
The sub contractors always showed up, in rain (mostly), sun (sometimes) and snow (occasionally). They were always pleasant and their work was very professional. We couldn’t have been happier with the result and we moved in within the predicted time. We have been in the house for over a year now and through high winds and storms the house has held up beautifully and throughout the year Integrity builders has kept in touch to make sure we are still satisfied. They have lived up to their name and we would recommend this company to anyone who wants to accomplish the biggest investment one can make with peace of mind, support and incredible workmanship.
Thank you Integrity Builders.

“..Extremely hard working, an excellent problem-solver, and well-rounded in all aspects of construction”
In early 2019, our family contracted Jarrett Jellema of Integrity Builders Ltd. to build a 964 square foot addition on our 1970s home in Sidney, BC. The addition is self-contained, attached to the front of the existing home and above grade, and required an experienced contractor with good problem-solving skills to properly blend the new and existing buildings to create an aesthetically pleasing home with great curb appeal. Now that the project is complete, we’ve lost count of the number of people from the community who have stopped by — or literally stopped in the middle of the road while driving past (including the transit bus driver) — to tell us how great our new home looks. The end result has exceeded our expectations, and the project’s success is a testament to the skill, knowledge, and quality workmanship of our contractor, Jarrett Jellema.
We found Jarrett to be diligent, efficient, and extremely hard working, an excellent problem-solver, and well-rounded in all aspects of construction. All of these attributes are essential in a general contractor. We reaped the benefits of his good advice and suggestions on many occasions during the project. Through it all he was approachable, reasonable, considerate, and easy to talk to. Because Integrity Builders Ltd. is a smaller company, we especially appreciated being able to deal one-on-one with our contractor without having to go through several layers of management.
We highly recommend Jarrett Jellema for any project he feels competent to undertake. He has a great deal of knowledge and experience in construction and is, in general, a very competent person

“… high levels of expertise, knowledge and skills.”
I am writing to let you know how much we appreciated the work carried out by your Company, Integrity Builders, and your sub Contractors, Harmsworth Electric; Woodfellow – Hardwood floors; Alpine Insulation; Westeck Windows; Mike Allen Installations – drywall; The Right Man – Plumber.
In August of 2012 we had our kitchen completely renovated and at the suggestion of Urbana Kitchens we were introduced to your Company, Integrity Builders. Your estimate and contract pricing we considered as good value, and throughout the contract we continued to feel the same. We felt that your sub-contractors each had very similar values to your own. Repeatedly we heard from, not just yourself or Dave, but subcontractors
that they wanted us to be pleased, and if we felt something wasn’t right they would make it so. We really appreciated that workers came on site when they said they would, if there was ever a schedule problem we heard from yourself or Dave before it happened, not after the fact. With such a small project we never felt we were relegated to an after thought. We felt our project was important, not just to ourselves, but to all the sub-contractors too.
As to workmanship, all your trades did a very good job, they had high levels of expertise, knowledge and skills. In fact the whole job went so smoothly because of that. Even after the job was completed both you and Dave have followed up to see if everything is okay!
We think the best recommendation we can give is to say we would use Integrity Builders again.
Thanks again for all your hard work,
David and Deborah
“…they go the extra mile to make sure the job is done perfect and as painless as possible“
It was a pleasure to work with Integrity Builders on the complete remodel of our 1930’s home. They took our unfinished basement and turned it into an amazing space! I now have a beautiful hair salon with a separate entrance from the home. We have a lovely second bathroom and two extra rooms.
They made a wonderful nook so our Infra Red Sauna is built in! And the man of the house is happy because he has his own man shop. On to the upstairs.. We went from having no deck in our large backyard to having an amazing deck built that spans the entire back of the house. It included putting lovely french doors into the dining room and removing a wall to allow space and light to flood into this once dark space. Jarrett and Dave have been great to work with. Very friendly and they go the extra mile to make sure the job is done perfect and as painless as possible. One very nice bonus is they were tidy along the way.
Thank you Integrity, We would recommend Integrity Builders to any of our friends!

“You work steadily, joyously, competently amidst job-site chaos, and in all you live up to your company name”
Thank you so much for helping us finish our reno! You provided so many creative & practical solutions, you were very enjoyable to work with ( it felt like Radar & Col. putter on “M.A.S.H.”! ) You easily caught the vision, you tirelessly worked to see it emerge into reality, you are a great witness to the other workers, your very high standards are contagious, you work steadily, joyously, competently amidst job-site chaos, and in all you live up to your company name. Integrity Builders. We”ll never forget you reporting for duty when the Blizzard hit with your toque on and hammer in hand – amazing ! We do wish we could have been a fly on the wall when you were removing the weight bearing post and you kept hearing the splitting sound- you must have been a Jellema blur as you dashed out to avoid becoming a pancake! Ha! Thanks for doing your job well ; you”re an absolute pleasure to be around! Until next adventure

“They only know how to do the job one way – right, beautiful, high quality.”
Integrity Builders live up to their name quality, service, and follow through. They just completed my third project, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. They only know how to do the job one way – right, beautiful, high quality. They have excellent communication and are a delight to work with.
After having a terrible experience with a previous contractors, I was overly cautious when I first worked with Jarrett & Dave. I’ve since learned to let them ‘run with the project’. Jarrett is also an architectural technician and can manage the required drawings and permitting process with ease. I first met Integrity when they were working on a LEED Silver residence. Their experience with high performance building envelopes and products helped me improve my home. They have an excellent sense of aesthetics, know what works/what doesn’t and have helped me prevent headaches during the design and construction process.
I was so confident with their skill and communication and professionalism, that I recommend Integrity Builders to my mother. They just completed a gorgeous gut & renovation of my mother’s condo. We are both delighted.
“Professional and a pleasure to work with”
Integrity Builders are professional and a pleasure to work with. No request was too difficult and all work was done to very high quality. My daughter used Integrity Builders and recommended them for the complete renovation of my condominium (new floors, kitchen, bathroom, trim, fireplace, ceilings. They were a pleasure to work with, and did everything I asked. I am delighted with my condo. Thank you Dave and Jarrett.
