Taylor Odishaw-Dyck

BTYD Founder

"I realized rather quickly during my early years in construction that many contractors fall short of their clients' need to feel good about where they're investing their money. After 4 years of drywalling, 2 years of mudding & taping and 1 year painting as an apprentice, I launched Better Than Your Dad to offer homeowners what I felt was a cutting-edge approach to remodelling their homes.

Once I started BTYD, I became a yes man; if I didn't know how to do something already, I would learn how. Becoming a multi-faceted renovator comes with its share of obstacles, but as of 2022 I am now well-versed in finish carpentry, vinyl flooring, epoxy casting, and paint spraying, as well as the skills I mastered previous to starting the business (drywalling, mudding/taping, hand-painting).

Working with journeyman tile-setters, cabinet-makers, granite installers, electricians, plumbers and HVAC professionals, together we now offer in-depth remodels for residential dwellings including ensuites, kitchens, basements, garages, man-caves and more.

If all that wasn't enough, we maintain the philosophy that no budget is too small for home improvement, as we work hand-in-hand with homeowners like you to make your remodelling dreams a reality.


If your home is in need of a shake-up, and you just don't know where to start, book a free consultation with Better Than Your Dad today to experience the most personable contracting in Calgary.

"BTYD has consistently demonstrated commitment and competence at an outstanding level."
