Here’s what our clients say about working with us
As a Land Surveying / Engineering firm we practise in the development industry. The Van Tol family (Lentel Construction) are highly respected builders. We had no hesitation in choosing Harry and Greg to manage and construct our project. All of their sub-trades were of similar reputation. They have been excellent to work with. We experienced great service, outstanding quality, honesty and genuine value from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending Lentel Construction to any of our clients.

When I moved to Ladner, I searched long and hard for a home that was both appealing and built with quality. Coming from a family of builders in Northern BC, this was extremely important to me. I found the perfect home – built three years earlier by local builder, Lentel Construction. As I lived in it over the next decade I wasn’t disappointed, the home proved to have been built to the highest standard and truly stood the test of time.
I decided to do a cosmetic renovation this past year and was ecstatic when Greg van Tol accepted the project. The level of service and quality of work were nothing less than exceptional. The crew at Lentel and their subtrades were courteous, friendly and always professional.
One year later, I continue to love my home and the work done, from the beautiful German oak floors to the redesigned bathrooms and kitchen, the overall finishing work, and the painting of the entire home both inside and out. I would highly recommend Lentel Construction for any level of renovation or new build – they are, without question, one of the best contractors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
I want to thank Lentel Construction for such amazing work done on our home.
The level of care taken during all the construction was amazing. The different tradespeople they arranged all did exceptional work. Whether it was the drywall workers that seamlessly blended existing walls into the new ones, or the flooring craftsman that milled transition pieces from our hardwood planks to blend into our tile floors, they all were great. It is hard to point out all the subtle things that were done beyond expectation, as it all just fits.
As for their professionalism, they communicated well and stayed on the schedule I had. All the billing and invoices for work were clearly laid out, with no surprises.
We feel so fortunate to have Lentel Construction do our work, especially after watching delays with neighboring construction projects.
When my wife and I decided to build our dream piano studio, we solicited friends and local Delta homeowners to refer the best construction companies to contact. Lentel Construction was the first (and often only) name given each and every time. And their countless finished projects and satisfied customers throughout Delta are a testament to that reputation.
Though considered a “small job” to others, Harry and Greg’s uncompromising attention to the every detail ensured our “little” dream was completed to perfection. Harry was often the first person on site every morning and the last person to lock up every day, reviewing the work and guaranteeing each step was completed to their satisfaction. Along with their polite, professional crew, expert sub-trades, and quality suppliers, we knew Lentel brought their best on site each and every day.
In the end, Lentel Construction brought our dream to reality, on time and on budget; exceeding our expectations in every way. We truly valued their honesty, genuine kindness, and respect for our property and privacy. They are a company of true integrity and we are happy to now join the many who refer Lentel Construction first.
In the spring of 2016 we contracted with Lentel Construction to take our 2800 sq. ft. retirement home on Westminster Avenue in Ladner from paper to reality. The build took 7 months from start to finish and resulted in a home that exceeded our highest expectations. We proudly tell our friends and others that our home was crafted by the experienced, talented and dependable father and son team of Harry and Greg, together with their complement of experienced employees and top notch trades. We love our new home and recommend Lentel Construction at every opportunity.
Les and Jacquie
We are extremely pleased with our gorgeous Lentel-built home. Harry, Greg and the entire team have been so responsive and focus on “quality, craftsmanship and value”. Our platinum BUILT GREEN®-certified home is highly efficient and is the envy of many of our friends – and we feel it’s the best-built home in our neighbourhood. Their highly skilled team pays attention to detail and perfection is reflected in every aspect of our home. We’re thrilled and proud that we found Lentel.

Our renovation experience with Lentel was excellent. It began with solid advice and ideas for renovation options, and continued with a quick tear down, help from the team setting up a makeshift kitchen in the garage, well-coordinated material timing, and no down days – someone worked on our project every day. We also really appreciated the team cleaning up the space at the end of each day and not leaving a mess.
The quality of the workmanship was well above average; we get more use out of the overall space and entertain more now that it has a new, user-friendly layout. Lentel was recommended to us by a friend, and we would absolutely recommend them for the quality of the work, the efficiency of the construction, and the friendliness of the team.
We had our kitchen and family room renovated and our experience with Lentel Construction was wonderful from beginning to end! We were away for most of the renos, but the communication was great. Harry was really quick to respond to messages and always ready to answer questions and make suggestions – we especially appreciated the team’s response to special requests.
The crew were awesome – so courteous and knowledgeable – and we were completely comfortable having them in our home while we were away. The craftsmanship on our project was excellent and the construction dates were met. Lentel was recommended to us by several neighbours, and we would not hesitate to recommend Lentel to anyone.

In our search for a new home we came upon a beauty in the Cove Links area. It was clear after a home inspection that we had found our home, as the inspector claimed that he had never given a house such high marks as this particular one. Our own initial look at the house showed that there was great attention to detail in every aspect of the house. Each piece of the house was completed to perfection and it was clear that this was no ordinary builder. After one year of living in this beautiful home, we had yet to call Lentel Construction for any issues or touch ups. I have a few family members who are looking to build new homes and I will definitely ensure that they use Lentel Construction for their projects.

We could not be more pleased with our home, which was constructed by Lentel 10 years ago. When selecting a contractor for a recent update we did not need to shop around. We knew Lentel could deliver and were able to take our ideas and turn them into a reality. Excellent craftsmanship and ability to be super creative with ideas and solutions.
Mike and Julie W
In 2008, our family moved into a spec house built by Lentel Construction. Prior to completing the purchase of this home, we required an inspection as one of our subjects. The inspector was blown away by the quality of the build and told us we couldn’t ask for a home constructed better than that one. It had a perfect inspection rating.
So, when we set out to build our dream home in 2018, Lentel was at the top of our list, but we still did our due diligence by interviewing different builders. No matter how many companies we met with, no one compared to Lentel. Greg and Harry’s relaxed yet confident demeanor, and honest approach to what the build could look like within our budget, immediately put us at ease. Also, this incredible family team built on loyalty, honesty and trust has a very talented and reliable crew working alongside them.
Whether we were speaking to contract workers, the project managers, or Greg and Harry, we felt like we were being heard and cared for every step along the way. Communication was clear and consistent, and the trades worked alongside each other effortlessly. The work environment was very respectful in regards to communication amongst each other, towards us, and physically for our surrounding neighbours.
And due to Greg and Harry’s timely, honest and clear communication, Lentel completed our project ON TIME and ON BUDGET. We moved into our home in March 2020, and even to this day I feel grateful for the wonderful experience we had building our beautifully crafted dream home. I always told my husband I was scared to build a home, but Lentel made it feel fun and easy, and if I had to, I would do it all over again with their guidance.

We want to recognize everyone at Lentel Construction for building our home on time, and for meeting unexpected demands when facing budget constraints and the global pandemic. The team came through and showed flexibility, responsiveness, and care during our custom build. Thank you to Greg, Harry, Jon and the entire Lentel team.
Lentel built a custom home for me in Tsawwassen. I had not yet engaged an architect or designer when contacting Lentel and they steered me to all the professionals I would require, making life so much easier.
When it was time to finally break ground and build, I cannot imagine having such a positive experience with any other builder. I was very particular and very involved with the design, and wanted my home to be built as environmentally responsible as possible, given the means at hand. Lentel was inventive and went the extra mile. Workmanship was impeccable and three years later, if I need anything, I just reach out. Their crew, headed by Jon and subtrades were craftsmen and artists in their own right and always professional.
I love my new home and the unique and sometimes unusual design elements it encompasses. I would highly recommend Lentel. They are talented, honest, patient, and they listen.
