Locals have the skills

When planning to build, renovate, construct, change or whatever anything to do with your property, house, yard, office and so on we should all remember Sooke has a large and very talented contruction related business sector. From designing, digging the hole, framing, pouring concrete, siding, providing gravel, roofing, landscape design and supplies and everything else you might need start to finish, you should check out who is available here in Sooke. Hiring local is very good for our community, or at least give local businesses a chance to bid on the project.

Look for the Sooke Construction Directory for people and businesses that can do the job for you. The Sooke Construction Directory is available at the district office as well as businesses in Sooke related to building and/or renovating. Check it out, and if you know of anybody that should be in the directory that isn’t let me know at www.sdcpublishing@gmail.com
