Company Overview

Canstar Restorations is looking for a fantastic individual to join our Whistler team.  We are a Canadian restoration company, locally owned and operated since we opened in 1985. From humble beginnings with just a single employee, our team has grown to six branches in two provinces and over 240 skilled and compassionate individuals.


About the Position

Our Whistler location (servicing the Sea-To-Sky highway) is looking for technicians to join our team. Work is both residential (living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, exteriors, decks) as well as commercial/industrial.


  • Emergency Services: Setting up drying equipment, extracting water from structures, monitoring the drying process and providing customer services to customers, removal of flooring, windows, doors, tile, cabinets, drywall and vanities all while ensuring there is adequate site protection.
  • Contents: Pack and document damaged possessions including clothes, furniture, art work and electronics. Ensure items are careful stored to avoid damage and reset items once rebuild is complete.
  • Reconstruction (Finish & Rough Carpentry): Measure, cut and apply all reconstruction materials, including baseboards, sub-floors, casings, closets, doors, windows and cabinets. Install insulation and vapour barrier. Complete board-ups due to storms and vandalism.
