Dean Sprung

Dean has renovating in his blood.  From helping his parents with finishing basements as early as ten years old to finishing a second dwelling unit in his own house recently, Dean loves this kind of work.  In 2020, he completed his certification as a home flood risk assessor.  He has lived in Newmarket for 24 years where his family has spent many of those years in hockey arenas around Ontario.  Dean has a passion for numbers and his role in the company involves estimating, tracking budgets and project management.  He likes the reveal of renovations but appreciates what is behind the walls as well.  Dean finds time to go camping, kayaking, hiking and skating with the family.

Craig MacGowan

Craig has decades of renovation experience and the ability to turn decrepit houses into high value properties.  When he walks into anyone’s house he can immediately find deficiencies in the finished work.  This quality puts him in charge of the final details on the renovation projects that he works on.  Any chance that Craig gets to do custom work for a customer, he is all over it.  His selection, finishing and installation of wood products can be seen in many online photos of projects that he has worked on.  While he seems busy, he still manages to play hockey three nights a week and takes time to visit many Ontario craft brewers.
