Our Construction Process

At Woodsmith Construction, our construction process is designed to ensure the successful completion of your renovation project, encompassing three key stages: project planning, project development, and project management. In the project planning phase, we work closely with you to understand your goals, assess the unique requirements of your older home, and develop a detailed plan that aligns with your vision. During the project development stage, our experienced team refines designs, obtains necessary permits, and finalizes construction schedules and budgets. Finally, in the project management phase, we oversee every aspect of the construction process, maintaining open communication, ensuring quality control, and adhering to established timelines and budgets. Our comprehensive construction process, tailored to renovating older homes in Toronto’s East End, guarantees a seamless renovation experience and a beautifully transformed home.

Common Questions

You can start the process by booking an initial project review meeting. Once we have thoroughly reviewed your project, we will provide an initial cost projection. 

All of our budgeting and scheduling are tied to each other in our project management software. A detailed budget is provided before construction ever begins. All budget line items are used as scheduling items to make things easy to understand. This way, you know what is supposed to be done and how much it should cost.   

Communication is very consistent throughout our design and build process. There are regular weekly progress updates in the form of job logs and cost breakdowns. There are also biweekly project meetings. Beyond that, any questions raised are answered by the end of the next business day or sooner. 

We have a detailed warranty package we provide to all of our clients. Depending on what it is, the time frame can range from 2 to 5 years. Rest assured that no matter the problem or how long it has been since we did the project, we are always happy to help resolve it.

"We had a great experience working with Chris at Woodsmith Construction. He is honest, transparent, realistic, easy to get in touch with and makes himself available to his clients whenever they need him. I would gladly recommend Woodsmith Construction to anyone doing a renovation as Chris made a complicated process a positive experience."

“Woodsmith Construction Inc. recently completed a full-home renovation on our place, including underpinning and adding a third floor. We couldn’t be happier with the results and the level of service that we received from Chris and his entire team. Chris is an absolute professional who is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated to his craft and was exceptionally responsive at all points in the project to all of our questions and concerns. For us, this timely communication provided a level of comfort and assurance – I cannot imagine doing a project of this scale without it! During the project, the worksite was kept so clean – our neighbours consistently commented on how great and respectful the team was. We were able to complete a huge project with very little tension and to me, that speaks volumes about the manner in which the project was carried out. In terms of the results, we are thrilled. The workmanship, detail and solid construction of our home are all that we hoped for. This workmanship and level of service continued through the final stages of the project, when we were completing the finishing touches. Chris ensured that every small detail was arranged for and completed. Obviously, we highly recommend Woodsmith Construction and are grateful to Chris and his team for the amazing work, professionalism and service they provided.”

“The Woodsmith team did a phenomenal job of rebuilding our house to match our dream on-time and within our budget. Chris (the owner) was always accessible, open to ideas and patient with questions. This made all the difference for us. He understands that a job of this scale is something that an owner will likely only do once, and he offered great advice and put all our fears at ease. We constantly knew exactly how we were tracking to our budget (to the dollar) and our job site was clean and orderly at all times (which our neighbours very much appreciated). We were nervous about our year-long adventure in renos (we’ve all heard horror stories), but Chris helped us spread out decisions over time and provided clear options for any challenges his team encountered, making that year a surprisingly pleasant one. All of the work was top-quality and has garnered unsolicited positive comments from anyone who sees our home (including other contractors working in our neighbourhood). I have no problem recommending Woodsmith; you will be in very good hands.”

As well as a great end-product, Chris provided excellent customer communication services throughout the whole process that were greatly appreciated! We would have no hesitation in recommending Woodsmith Construction and in fact have already booked them for a second project."

"Woodsmith construction just completed a gut job and garage addition for my husband and I and it was the best experience I could have hoped for especially given all the renovation horror stories we have heard. They were so professional, helpful, diligent and responsive and the quality of the renovation was first class. I would recommend anyone to hire Woodsmith construction for all their needs whether it is a renovation or a new build. We could not be happier with the outcome and our newly renovated home"
