Upon Recommendation from a friend and co-pilot,

Eric Hettema, of Van Gogh Painting and Restorations Ltd., was hired to fulfill a complete and major renovation to my 100 year old heritage home which suffered major water damage and was in a near state of disrepair. After meeting many contractors and with disappointment from a major restoration company I was most confident with Eric's presentation to rejuvenate my, now, wonderful lakeside heritage estate.

During the six months of this project Eric provided me with professional/detailed reports and recommendations on how to proceed showing incredible patience, meticulous skill and craftsmanship to transform my home. Not once did I hesitate or question his talents he kept pulling out of his hat. His responsibilities included initial pressure washing of the building, jacking up the front and back porches and the house, rebuilding wooden structures of pillars and steps, reconstructing stucco damage and final restoration to exterior windows and doors, stucco surface and re-pointing the chimney. He also hired and supervised the electrician and plumber for a complete renewal of systems. Eric continued with an amazing job of replacing the steep roof which included dormers,valleys,step flashing,and rounded torch-on porch roofs.

The final stage involved the interior restoration of all wooden mouldings; baseboards, doors, frames, windows which had to be removed and completely stripped and refinished including the original wooden floors. All original plaster and lath walls and ceilings were torn out and replaced with new fiberglass, vapour barrier and drywall. During this stage additional closets were suggested and built thru attic crawl spaces; (an amazing use of lost and needed space). Kitchen and bathrooms were completely rebuilt and refinished. During the final stages of painting Eric suggested several color themes which would enhance the era and still update the overall appeal to modern standards. I was most impressed with his confidence,humour, and easy-going character. I felt at ease and gave him full reigns of this project.

I am pleased to recommend Eric Hettema and his crew @ Van Gogh Painting and Restorations Ltd. for any project he may propose. I am sure you will be equally impressed with his competitive estimation, in depth knowledge of skills, wide variety of professional equipment/tools, his caring and supportive guidance with his crew, and finally incredible delivery of finished product. In the near future, I intend to hire him again to design and build a new cottage on my sunshine coast waterfront property.

Thanks a Million!

Sincerely, Bill Gillies , Hatzic Lake, B.C.
