“Woodsmith Construction Inc has renovated several homes in my neighbourhood in the last few years and came highly recommended by a friend. My experience with them couldn’t have been better. The process itself was very smooth with few surprises. When, for example, we had unexpected water in the basement, it was handled quickly, effectively and in the most cost effective way possible. Chris, CEO Woodsmith, was the direct project manager and walked us through every phase with very helpful suggestions/opinions, pragmatic advice and realistic timelines. Communication was very timely; he was always available for questions etc. I really felt I could trust him – something that’s relatively rare in the construction/renovation industry! The budget was fair, competitive and transparent. Workspaces were always left safe and tidy. The end product was excellent with wonderful attention to detail. We love our house! Count yourself lucky on many levels if you’re able to hire Woodsmith Construction Inc!”

We hired Woodsmith Construction and his team to turn the attic of our 1905 home to a master suite. In addition to the all-round good vibes we felt from Chris, he showed signs of being the most honest, capable, and confident in comparison to the other companies we interviewed. We felt like this was someone that we could trust with our savings and the future of our home. Chris provided us with an itemized budget prior to the start of the renovation. From the beginning we could see clearly how much each portion of the project would cost. This was updated every couple of weeks to reflect the actual costs of the work that was completed or underway. This was extremely helpful and reassuring. Woodsmith Construction also has a number of professional and courteous team members. We had an excellent experience with all the trades and sub-contractors that worked with Chris to make our home beautiful. Most importantly we are extremely happy with the workmanship and can tell that each member of the Woodsmith Construction team takes pride in creating quality spaces. Our project was not lacking in obstacles along the way but ultimately we are delighted with the end result and would highly recommend Woodsmith Construction for any project.
Thank you Chris, Angelina and everyone at Woodsmtih for creating our dream space.

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.
Project Date: March 2015Project Price Range: more than $100,000We worked with Chris for over a year as he and his team renovated our semi in the west end. It was a total gut job of an old house so had it challenges from the beginning. Chris was excellent at explaining the options and giving us pros and cons of each so that we could make informed decisions. Chris was always available during night or day to answer questions or return email. Chris was also excellent at managing our neighbours who proved quite problematic throughout the entire process. He always had an eye on the budget and timing and his projections were very close. His billing was transparent without any hidden costs. We continue to work with Chris and his team to this day on the update of our exterior.

“We couldn’t be happier with the work done on our basement and the WAY that it was done. We knew every step of the way, what was happening, why and what all of the options were so that we could make our choices. We knew the costs all the way through with up-dates pretty much each week. The transformation is unbelievable. The rest of the house runs better now, too, because of the basement up-grade. We’re just thrilled!!!”

Chris and the Woodsmith Construction team turned a moldy and old basement into our family’s oasis. Chris was very responsive and listened to our needs every step of the way. Chris never cut corners and stands behind his work. I highly recommend Woodsmith Construction!!

Woodsmith Construction was the sole contractor executing a project comprising of enclosing a walk out balcony, effectively extending our kitchen and equipping it with a dine-in space. I did not extensively shop the project around as I was quite pleased with Woodsmith right away – I value the confidence I have in a contractor on par with the cost. The contract was based on full cost disclosure (hours, receipts) plus profit, and I could help out with some things to keep the costs down. If I had to isolate the one factor I was most impressed with Woodsmith it would be the quality of all workmen and trades. In quality, I mean professionalism, punctuality, skill and interpersonal skills – the latter are often at a premium in the industry, at least in my opinion. The project moved along at a reasonable pace given the size and all aspect of the built, framing, exterior and interior work were done well and with the appropriate attention to detail. In addition, I can’t recall one instance when I was not able to reach my contact at Woodsmith within 5 minutes or less. In terms of communication, I can’t say enough good things about the company and to me communication in a way equals confidence. In summary, I found the company to be dedicated and committed to all of their trades, which in turn resulted in a successful project execution and an excellent end product.
Project Date: June 2014Project Price: more than $100,000The workmanship was of an extremely high caliber. The company used very experienced workers, carpenters and trades. Our home came out better than expected. That is because Mr. Woodsmith provided great recommendations in terms of what work should be done and what colours should be used.
