I have known Mr. Jim Frost over a period of some twenty plus years in both professional and social milieus. I have had the good fortune to have been involved in construction projects where Jim has been involved as a General Contractor and / or as a Construction Manager, and can state without any qualms that I would be happy to work on any project with Jim and his team. Through these years I have found Jim to be completely reliable in his attitude, knowledgeable in his trade, and very professional in his dealings with Clients, consultants, and sub-trade contractors. Jim is concerned with personal attention to the needs and budgets of his clients, and has a very good track record of quality construction projects to support his abilities.
It is my pleasure to provide this letter of reference for Mr. Jim Frost and Frost Developments Ltd., and I trust that should any potential client require further information that they will not hesitate to call this writer at their convenience.
Yours very truly,

I have known Mr. Jim Frost for more than 35 years. In 1996 and 1997 he helped me assemble land and acted as the general contractor in constructing my home in South Surrey, BC. In 2000, he acted as the general contractor in renovating office premises for my business in Central Surrey, BC. In all dealings with Mr. Frost, I have found him to be responsive, fair and honourable, delivering a quality product on time at a competitive price. As I have been extremely satisfied with Mr. Frost and his company, I have no hesitancy in recommending his services. Should you require further information, I would be pleased to respond to your request.
I have worked with Jim Frost and Frost Homes on two major projects. The first was a complete renovation of a heritage house with a budget of $200,000. The second was the new construction of a Heritage designated Coach House.
Both projects required extreme attention to city bylaws, permitting, working with architects and countless trades. Jim is meticulous and well organized in his oversight of the project and coordination of trades and timelines. He pays excellent attention to the budget and to keeping the job "on budget and on time." He is punctual and attends the jobsite daily. He always answers his phone! His cheery demeanor with everyone involved always made the workplace a positive, pleasant place even when things were difficult. This is extremely important to the homeowner and to the many others working on a project. I always appreciated Jim’s willingness to listen and respond creatively to my ideas and concerns. He knows how to collaborate with all the important players and takes a genuine sense of pride and accomplishment to see the job well done.
Despite the many challenges involved in major renovation and new construction, working with Jim resulted in two very beautiful, well constructed, outstanding homes. He is experienced, confident, well acquainted with the trades in the lower mainland, and committed to the projects he undertakes. I would recommend Jim as a contractor without hesitation.
My family has owned two homes built by Frost Homes. We were very impressed by the quality of the materials, craftsmanship and the attention to detail that went into both of our houses. The state of the art mechanical systems make our home very energy efficient and comfortable to live in.
We have been very satisfied with our dealings with Max and Jim and would be happy to recommend their company to any future clients.

We look forward to doing business with you in the future.

I have worked with Max and Jim for over fifteen years, and in that time I come to know them as very capable and trustworthy contractors that have demonstrated excellent servoce and attention to detail for whatever issues a given project presented. Perhaps, even more importantly, I have seen an unqualified loyalty from their clients that is very valuable in this industry. With that in mind I have no problem in recommending them as respected builders.
