What our clients say

“OakWood worked with us, listening to our ideas and delivered a fantastic design.”

Atul & Richa Aggarwal
“We get many compliments on the addition and especially the very unique double vaulted ceiling in the family room!”
Mike Lee and Susan Allenby
“…I cannot speak too highly of OakWood. I have passed your name to many friends who are contemplating renovations in the year.”
Bert Cowan

“We’re really enjoying our expanded kitchen and our opened-up front entrance. The project has given our 1970s era house an up-to-date feel and makes entertaining much more enjoyable. Thanks so much to OakWood for making it happen!”

Alex and Mindee Mirhady

“There are two areas that particularly impress us about Oakwood: the quality of work and the exceptional work crew…We always felt confident that our home was in good hands. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend OakWood to friends and family. Thank you for a job well done.”

Carolyn Turner

“We are very happy with the renovation work done on our home…We had no real surprises and all change orders but one were initiated by us so we ultimately had control of expenditures. Overall, the renovation was much less stressful than we anticipated. I should add, that we stayed in the house for the entire renovation…In the end, I would be more than happy to work with OakWood again.”

Dan Wayner

“I found everyone right from the initial designers to the last person out the door to be extremely professional, hard working, friendly and very respectful of my home. The weekly meetings with you to discuss the work schedule, as well as any concerns I had were very helpful and kept me abreast of everything…In fact, I am so pleased that I will have OakWood back for other projects around my home. Again, I would like to convey my sincere thanks…”

Debbie Oaks

“It has been almost a year since we saw the finishing touches to our kitchen renovation. We thought that we should let you know that our “dream” kitchen continues to fulfill our expectations… In the space of about four months you took us from a virtually useless space to a modern kitchen that fit to the style of the house…We really appreciate the work that OakWood has done and we have in fact referred a number of neighbours to consider OakWood for their renovation projects.”

Jennifer Spence and Pablo Sobrino

“When we go to parties and find ourselves listening to horror story after horror story about renovation disasters, we can only shake our heads and think, “They should have used OakWood.” We were, and remain impressed by your consistent emphasis on quality materials, caliber of work and the client service mentality that obviously drives your business…”
