“We choose OakWood because friends of ours had OakWood do an addition for them. Also because the company seems to have a good reputation. Lastly because we are very busy and do not have the time to organize all contractors and supplies in order to manage a renovation project.”

Larry and Carol Lethbridge Hudon
"Our Designer got to know us by listening to what we were looking for and brought forward innovative ideas, pushing a bit to see where we were comfortable and where we were not. The design process was organic-growing from a concept and it took a good number of versions and modifications as the process went forward. Throughout it all, Our Designer was patient and professional, answering questions and providing advice."
Marilyn and Peter Hill
"We have been very impressed with the progress that has been made on our renovation project. All of our questions have been answered. Additionally, all of the contractors have been very polite and courteous, even knocking on the door in the morning before opening it with the key. They have left the house relatively clean and they tidy up behind themselves.”

Can you tell I'm a happy customer? Chose Oakwood and you will be too!"
“We wanted to thank you for the professional approach and great job that was done by the crew. It’s hard to get excited by a “sump pump room”….(wish it was a new kitchen or basement) but it’s exactly what we needed in terms of cleaning up that space and making everything easily accessible and damp free.”
“We had worked with OakWood before when we added a master bedroom, bathroom, office space, and a walk-in closet to our house. Our experience back then we overall very positive, and when we decided to potentially change our kitchen we contacted OakWood again.”
