Rivals join forces to build the Kootenays

DJM have the know-how and people skills to get your renos or construction done efficiently and make it an enjoyable experience.



If you’re looking to make any renovations to existing property or want to construct some new living space, the rivals turned allies at DJM have the know-how and people skills to get it done efficiently and make it an enjoyable experience.

Through superb workmanship and outstanding customer service, DJM Contracting has been providing top-notch custom building projects and renovations.

Working out of their main office, located at 2096 Second Avenue in Rossland, DJM services the Trail-Rossland area all the way to Fernie, Kaslo and the Okanagan, and has completed over 140 jobs for satisfied customers within its relatively short lifetime.

DJM derives its name from the three founders, Dan Eheler, Justin Tanguay and Mark Daugherty, who as previous competitors with their own independent contracting operations decided to join forces and profit from their combined experience of over 50 years.

DJM operates within the commercial and institutional market with great success but with most of their previous experience being in residential they have made monumental strides towards building a great reputation amongst the communities they work in.

And it starts with customer service.

With each of the guys having two children of their own, under the age of four, a friendly family atmosphere is important and ever-present in the office and on the site.

“We make sure our employees have the greatest respect for anyone on site as well as anyone who walks onto the site,” Tanguay says.

Tanguay explains that everyone under the employment of DJM is to treat the customer as if they are employing them, not DJM.

“When they work for us, they are ultimately working for the customer.”

In addition to stellar customer service, DJM pride themselves on consistent, quality craftsmanship.

“We have an in-house interior designer, which helps us give better service to our customers,” Tanguay says.

“And we also work very closely with a series of engineers that provide a better product for all our customers,” he adds.

DJM does all of the foundation work themselves but when looking for people to drywall, insulate, etc. they only choose the very best, who know their trade inside and out.

“This year is looking to be a busy one, and as long as the main focus is maintaining that same high level of quality and communication with our customers, then I think we’ve done our job,” says Tanguay.
