A Different Type Of Builder
We have a lot of delighted testimonials with our new home. Having looked at dozens of homes previously, we immediately recognized that your homes were different.
Attention to detail, quality of workmanship, and quality materials helped this home to stand out from all the others. Upon meeting Larry for the first time, we could tell he was a different type of builder. He wasn’t about just making a sale but was more concerned that we were happy. Having lived in the home for almost a year, we have found Larry to be attentive to our needs. Moreover, the home has been a great investment.
Thank you for our dream home and the care and attention you took while constructing it.

On Time and Under Budget
When Larry Clay decided to turn his passion for building into his own construction business, my wife and I knew we weren’t taking much of a risk by letting Larry build us the first-ever Clay Construction home. He turned the blueprints into reality, both on time and under budget.
Our testimonials is that we are so pleased with Larry’s integrity and the subsequent quality of his work that we later used him to build a second house….and then a third!
The Best Decision We Ever Made
Having our house built by Clay Construction was the best decision Laura and I ever made. They have great ideas and the sub-trades they use do outstanding work.
I visited the site almost daily during construction, and if there were ever any questions, whoever was on the site would willingly discuss them. In the end we got a quality home that gets rave reviews from everyone that visits.
Someone We Could Trust
A business associate used Clay Construction to build their dream home. He was so extremely happy with the entire building process that there was no hesitation to fully endorse Clay Construction and recommend them to me.
Upon contacting Larry I found him to be a very sincere individual that was customer service driven. My wife and I both knew from the start that this was someone that we could trust and communicate well with.
The weekly financial and cost reports that were provided allowed us to follow the progress of the project in detail all the way to completion.
Just What I Had Hoped For
Throughout the design, permitting, and construction process, Larry Clay did a thorough job. He dealt with each phase in a detailed, professional, timely and courteous manner. I found his sub-trades to be friendly and responsive to special requests.
Larry’s crew, in applying the siding and exterior trim work, were thoughtful and creative. Our home, both inside and out, is appealing and comfortable, which is just what I had hoped for.
Larry spent a great deal of time showing me the bones of his operation and other buildings he had finished or was constructing. I was dazzled. When the opportunity came to build with Larry, I leapt at the chance. The home that he built for me is a masterpiece.
I watched every step of its construction and was struck by the quality of materials, the attention to detail and the uncompromising care put into the construction. The very few adjustments needed were done quickly and carefully.
Our testimonials is the result is a product I am proud of from its teak floors to its seamless marble countertops.

Goes to Bat For You and Has Your Back!
Larry Clay impressed us with his wisdom, quick thinking, and problem-solving skills from day one. Our home was faced with the challenges of Vancouver’s brand new building code and the biggest permit backlog the city had ever seen, but Larry navigated it all.
He came up with cutting edge, innovative technologies to meet and exceed the new requirements, and got our construction stages approved in a timely manner through quality workmanship and persistent yet courteous communications with city staff.
But most impressive is how Larry’s genuine care for the customer continues well after they’ve moved in. He has always been there with a generous heart and helping hand whenever we’ve had questions or concerns. Thank you Larry!

Team Exceeded Our Expectations
In January 2009, my wife and I purchased property in Burnaby knowing absolutely nothing about building a custom home. Our search for a builder to build our dream home included interviewing over a dozen custom home builders. We toured homes with four of them before finally settling with Larry Clay from Clay Construction.
The building experience with the Clay Construction team exceeded our expectations. Their processes are transparent and their promises were exceeded. Larry did what he said and at no time during the process did we question his integrity, character, or intentions. Larry is a man we trust implicitly.
The staff at Clay Construction carry the same vision. The site supervisors are sincere and clearly communicated that they have our best interests at heart. They are honest and dependable. Similarly, the office staff are prompt, transparent, and helpful.
To summarize our experience, since we first met Larry in 2009, he has built my brother’s home, my sister’s home, and three additional investments properties for our family. He will be starting a major renovation at my parent’s home in the fall.
I’m proud to call Larry Clay a great friend and I will not hesitate recommend him to others.

Construction Process Was Smooth
Before deciding upon a contractor to build our home for us, my wife and I thought long about the process. The type of Company and individuals we wanted to deal with. I had the opportunity to speak with a number of contractors. I got a feel for the way they did business and see the quality of their finished homes. Larry Clay and Clay Construction Inc. were by far the most professional and impressive to deal with. Larry presented a thorough and detailed binder that represented the initial quote. He then showed us the impressive online accounting system that the Company has developed and sets it apart. It shows how every penny during the construction process was being spent. As well how it compared to the original budget and was supported by invoices from the sub-trades.
Larry also showed us three different homes that the Company had recently completed and this not only gave us comfort as to the quality of the finishing, but also gave us ideas for our own home.
The transparent nature of the accounting system was the initial reason for us choosing Clay Construction Inc. The construction process was smooth and the sub-trades were a pleasure to work with. Larry himself was always available to answer questions via e-mail and phone as well as in person on site. He was always easy to get a hold of and showed great patience and professionalism.
The biggest endorsement we can give is that if we build a new home again, it will be Clay Construction Inc. that we call first to manage the project. I also recommend them to anyone who is looking to build a new home.
Quality and Integrity
I reflect on my home ownership experience with “Clay Construction” with feelings of great satisfaction. I expected a good deal from our Clay built home. It was evident that the house was built solidly, and with quality products. What I did not expect, was that the builder, Larry, would stand behind his product in every way.
On our first walk-through the house, we were encouraged to make a list of minor deficiencies (touch-ups) with the promise they would be corrected to our satisfaction. There was little-to-nothing to be done that could have improved the outstanding job Clay Construction did with the finishing on this very beautiful home. Upon closer inspection, every corner of each room within the 4,200+ square feet of space looked perfect to me; the house exceeded my expectations. Along with the touch-ups, we were promised the new house 2/5/10 warranty.
I am not aware, nor have I met anyone else in my life who has shown such solid follow-through and after-sales service as Larry Clay from Clay Construction has. As a customer, it is in my personal dealings over the years I have known Larry that he has built complete confidence and trust for himself and his business. His name, (and the name of his company) has now become synonymous to me with ‘Quality’ and ‘Integrity’. Others in my subdivision who purchased a Clay Construction home had similar experiences to share. They know only too well that Larry is a rare individual, trustworthy and honest, with a keen willingness to please his customers. In our present world, this excellence in behavior is commendable, and so should be recognized and celebrated.
