Dear John & David,
David and I would just like to thank you for a job well done. I feel it important that you know that we were impressed from the moment Jason arrived for the quote estimate. He was very clear and reassuring as to how things would unfold. This was very important to us as this was our first ever renovation and he put us (well me) at ease immediately. We know we would go with Baer before the other quotes were even arranged.
Every day we could see the constant progression in the work. I especially appreciated John, that you as well as all the other highly skilled workmen took care in cleaning the work space as much as possible at the end of each day.
We have recommended you to friends for their projects and will continue to do so with others.
We know today that should we need work done in the future, you will be the first we call.
We have had the pleasure of working with John & David Baer Inc. on residential-scale projects for the last five years.
We found David Baer to be very knowledgeable in residential construction, especially renovations. His understanding & personable approach to working with clients through the challenges of renovations is commendable. The extensive renovation to the Burton residence in London is a great example of the utmost cooperation that was shown by David and his sub-trades throughout this difficult project, which was completed on time and to the complete satisfaction of the owner while the residence was occupied. Based on our past involvement, both as owner and as architect, we highly recommend this contractor for residential projects.

John & David Baer did an amazing reno & addition at 48 Emery St. for myself, my daughter, her husband and two children… Joining a ‘slab on grade’ foundation to a structure with a 7’ heated basement was the major challenge. Again, Dave went to City Hall and dealt with planners and engineers to overcome the obstacles… Throughout the whole project, we were more than content with the work progress, the attitude and performance of the employees and the trades. Their ability to follow orders and overall excellent workmanship and knowledge, led us with confidence to a fantastic finished product

Our century old home in Petrolia Ontario suffered significant fire damage in August 2002. The burnt damage was to the upper story and the attics, more than 80% of the roofs and attics were completely destroyed. Dave and John Baer took on this project to rebuild the roof from the beams and rafters up. The roof being quite massive and starting at the third floor and going higher, required the skill, knowledge, and careful execution.
The roof has a few special angles and details. Baer Construction rebuilt the circular tower roof as well, and reintegrated it into the main roof. The work was also undertaken in the winter months of 2003. The cold and snow of winter presented added challenges. In all, the team worked as efficiently as possible and kept the owners well informed of the progress. Baer Construction was a pleasure to work with and their work is highly recommended by the Burnie family.

Gentlemen: I am writing to commend you on three of your staff members with whom we dealt this week concerning a leak in the basement of our home.
Jason Marcus, your estimator, arrived when he said he would, gave our basement and exterior a thorough inspection and sat down with my wife and me afterwards and explained what was causing the leakage problem and what he felt would be the best way to remedy it. He was competent, knowledgeable and very pleasant to deal with- a real credit to your business.
Frank Joris and Donny Manchester, who performed the actual repairs yesterday and today, also gave us a very favourable impression of your company. So much so, that if we have other work of this sort that needs doing, your company will be our first choice. Mr. Joris and Mr. Manchester worked hard to complete the repairs in two days, and left the basement and lawn areas where they worked in immaculate condition. In addition, they impressed us with thoughtful extras (which we hadn’t asked them to do), such as patching a basement screen window and a torn area of plastic vapour barrier covering our basement insulation. This is service above and beyond the norm, and we were most impressed. Like Mr. Marcus, they were personable, courteous and knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with…thought you’d like to know that all three of these employees struck us as hardworking and valuable assets to your company. Because of the excellent service they’ve provided (and the pleasant way in which they did so) John and David Baer Inc. will be our first choice for future home repairs. I’d be grateful if you’d convey our appreciation to Jason, Frank and Donny on our behalf.
Thank you again gentlemen. And best wishes for continued future success.
Mr. & Mrs. Gray
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you first of all for fixing our basement leak, we will no longer cringe when it rains. The work was completed in a timely fashion and almost more importantly each night our home was left in a state of cleanliness.
Each of the individuals that came to our home was both professional and knowledgeable. Everyone took the time to explain what was happening and why. The work that was completed was beyond our expectations for quality.
We look forward to having you complete more work at our home in the future. We will also recommend you to our friends.
Thank you for a job well done and congratulations on having people work for you that enjoy what they do. Best Regards.
Mr. & Mrs. Hebden
Jason is a great representative for your company. His knowledge and non-pressure salesmanship was a welcome change from other companies. For this we will be having some windows done by your company and hopefully the rest in the near future. Thank you.
I was very impressed with their professionalism. They walked me through every step, from creating a design and obtaining permits to detailed billing. They were always courteous and respectful while working on my property and kept me up-to-date with the building process. John & David Baer made my dream garage a reality!”
Invoice received. Thank you. They did a great job, and were very tidy and polite. Be sure and thank them for me; we were rarely there while they worked
Excellent job done; professional and timely, quality job! Donny was great with follow up and completions.
I would also like to express my gratitude to John for giving us such a positive experience with a contractor. He kept his area clean, respected our home, gardens and children, and was always polite and courteous. We would hire this company again in an instant and recommend them to anyone needing work done. Thank you again.

All the guys were very kind and took time to explain in detail the work being done- overall very happy with the work and crew.
I was very happy with your work-also the workers. I was very impressed on how they kept things clean.
Thank-you very much for all your work during the renovation of our two bathrooms. The professional and caring attitude of your team made the experience a pleasant one.
Thank you John & David, the work on the basement that you completed was a job well done. It is such a relief to have the repairs completed promptly and professionally.
