Even after six (+) decades and over 8,600 successful projects we still get a thrill when a client sends a reference letter to describe how happy they were with the experience and finished project. Here we provide a small sample of what our clients say.
“I am so proud when someone comes into my home to see the kitchen and can’t believe the design and impeccable workmanship that has been completed.”
“On the outside people are surprised to learn that the front addition is in fact an addition, the brickwork blends into the original house so smoothly.”
George Haydu and Marie-Claire Douville
“When we first started looking at builders, we chose OakWood because of their reputation and their professional proposal. We have heard a lot of horror stories about bad builders and are so happy that we got the best one for our home.”
CLIENT SUCCESS STORIES
KITCHEN AND FAMILY ROOM ADDITION
“The quality of the workmanship is hard to beat.”
The Lahey’s chuckle when they recall that a major kitchen and family room renovation started innocently with the kitchen floor. Ms. Lahey acknowledges their house was more than 40 years old and the kitchen “was old and tired.” The Lahey’s had been mulling over a new kitchen for years and thought a new floor would introduce a welcome sparkle.
THE DURRELL RENOVATION
“OakWood is a Company that is committed to Customer satisfaction, to a level of excellence and to ensuring that when the job is done, it’s done to perfection.”
Jim Durrell, CEO, Capital Dodge (former Mayor, City of Ottawa)
“We did not want it to look like we were entering a basement”
The primary goal of the Atul’s and Richa’s dream renovation was to convert their basement into more usable space while ensuring that it did not look like a basement. A key priority for them was a design that would seamlessly integrate a new state-of-the-art entertainment system.
KITCHEN AND ADDITION
“I now have a beautiful kitchen and an addition which exceeds what I imagined was possible…People talk about the wow factor but now when friends see it, I get at least three ‘wows’ and a few ‘OMGs!’ to top it off.”
Having run out of bedrooms and wanting to make sure her two teenage sons were comfortable in this small Westboro home, our client was forced to sleep in the living room! This along with the tired condition of the home prompted a call to Renovators for ideas and estimates.
“From beginning to end we found the OakWood Team to be imaginative in their design concepts, professional in their execution and truly focused on the satisfaction of their client.”
Big windows, sky lights, large windows, majestic double doors, and elegant millwork are a few of the design touches that helped update this period home for a new generation of family living.

NO SURPRISES OR EXTRA COSTS
“We have never been surprised by invoices requesting more than we anticipated. OakWood’s use of the Change Order System ensures that once a contract is signed, the homeowner will be notified of potential further required work in writing, and the work will not be completed or charged to the homeowner without their signature as consent to do so.”
Ruth and Malcolm Vant
SWITCHING TO OAKWOOD
“I started with another company before switching to OakWood….when OakWood started to work we saw there where “corners had been cut” and OakWood had to repair the work I had already paid for from the last company…The quality of the work is outstanding. The workmanship is excellent and they hire qualified people…”
Dr. Laura Murray
“There are numerous companies who are able to renovate a home and there are many promises that will be made to you and that is why one needs to choose wisely… So what do I mean by choose wisely? Chose a team that will listen to your complaints and rectify any and all deficiencies you may find in your home. Choose a company who has been around for years. Choose someone who has the connections and resources to solve problems. Choose someone who cares about the environment. Choose a team with excellent client service. OakWood has all of this. They can satisfy even the most demanding clients.”
