About Us

Our Reputation is Vital to our Business


Trades Professionals

Renaissance Contracting employs a highly skilled crew and operates a substantial workshop for off-site construction. The business is small enough to be competitive, but large enough to take on extensive jobs.


Established in 1985, Renaissance Contracting has decades of experience completing renovation and maintenance projects in a range of residential, commercial and industrial settings.

Renaissance Contracting can oversee any update, repair or modification to an existing structure. We have an excellent crew of highly skilled trades professionals that can work on interior or exterior projects. The team has a wide range of skills, including demolition, framing, electrical, plumbing, steel stud and dry wall, cabinet-making, finishing carpentry, tiling and painting. We also re-mark football fields and parking lots.


Renaissance Contracting is a community-based business that has been built through word of mouth, one satisfied customer at a time. Our reputation is vital to our business. Our customers become repeat customers because they know they can trust us to do a quality job.


Founder Chuck Strautman has more than 30 years’ experience in the trades. He launched his first business venture, painting houses, right out of high school – and has been continuously employed ever since, building up a wide variety of construction and related skills, along with a reputation for reliability and thoroughness. He now focuses on management and sales.


Working alongside him is junior partner Trevor Bath, BCom, who has a University of British Columbia business management degree in addition to approaching 10 years’ experience working for Renaissance Contracting in a variety of skilled positions. He now operates as supervisor / foreman.

Renaissance Contracting has completed heritage projects such as the BC Sports Hall of Fame. Sometimes the client wants us to come in and do some simple re-painting, but we still do a quality job.


In short, we solve problems and create new opportunities. Our customers come to us with a request to make something better. We resolve the situation. On time, within budget and with quality work. We can give surety bonds, if required.

Our business philosophy is clear

The customer has to be satisfied.
