“When we moved to the Valley there were no homes that were a fit for our need so we took the bold move to buy a fixer upper in a neighborhood we loved. Coast Catalyst Construction helped transform an outdated house into a modern home that met the needs of our family. We changed the floor plan and Sayre expertly scheduled the trades and hired the best subtrades and employees. This was a fairly large renovation with projects throughout the home including three bathrooms, a kitchen renovation and more. He was also always a phone call away if we had questions and always looked out for our interests and budget. I thank our lucky stars for how well our renovation went and we love our beautiful home.”



“I had the pleasure to work with Coast Catalyst Construction and they were fantastic. They completed the job on time and kept my home clean and tidy after the job was complete. I highly recommend this company for any home renovation or new build. Sayre is very skilled and will also offer great options and ideas to create the best layout for your family!”

“ I had the pleasure of meeting Sayre and his team last summer when they rebuilt my front porch.  From the get go, beginning with a visit and then the quote I found the whole process to be outstandingly executed.  The job was completed in a very timely manner, the team left the worksite neat and tidy each day and the work itself was of a very high standard and quality.  I would not hesitate to contact this company again and/or recommend them to anyone requiring their services.”



“Sayre and the Coast Catalyst team went above and beyond my expectations. They were under budget and completed well before I needed the space to be done. They did an impeccable job… people comment daily and ask who did the work. Not only that, Sayre had creative ideas that added a special touch to the space. I would recommend Sayre and the Coast Catalyst team for your new build! You won’t regret it!” 



“We moved to Courtenay in March 2017. The house we bought had been rented for several years and required major renovations. We didn’t know any contractors in the area. Our realtor Lisa Zuk contacted Sayre for us. He had completed a renovation to her home which she was very happy about. Sayre and his crew worked on the house from May until the end of September. The house was gutted. The windows and doors were reconfigured and replaced. Interior walls were moved. A whole new kitchen was installed. We really enjoyed working with Sayre. The biggest benefit of working with Sayre was his ability to accommodate our ideas (without rolling his eyes) which made the renovation a success. Any problems we ran into during the renovation Sayre was able to troubleshoot easily. Sayre and his crew were hardworking and polite. We are really satisfied with the workmanship. We would recommend Sayre as a contractor, he is reliable and the finished product will be exactly what the customer wants.”

“Coast Catalyst Construction recently completed a renovation for us and we couldn’t be happier. We’re a busy family and didn’t want to have to manage this process so we discussed our intent with Sayre and trusted his team to run with it. They asked questions as needed, gave suggestions on ways forward and kept us in the loop regarding timelines and budget. They organized all the trades and when we arrived at the end it was exactly what we’d envisioned. This team is dedicated to quality, professionalism, creativity and timeliness and we have no hesitation in recommending them for any building project you may have.”

We are thrilled with our new deck. Sayre and his team turned an eyesore into a feature of our home that we love to use. Communication about the project was excellent throughout the build. We highly recommend Coast Catalyst Construction for any building project. 



“As a long time client of Sayre Neufeld (10 yrs), I can attest to his excellent workmanship.  He has installed large skylights, renovated our ensuite, built a Garden house and large decks as well as numerous small jobs such as installing hand rails and building new front stairs. He has an excellent work ethic, is reliable and always on time as well as being able to answer questions or making other suggestions for the job to be done. I would recommend Sayre to anyone who wants a job done properly and on time… He also has a great personality.”
