Quality is easy to say – what does it mean?
A lot of renovators claim that their renovations are “built to the highest quality standards.” Unfortunately many of these same builders barely meet the minimum Ontario Building Code standards.
For OakWood quality is more than a word
Quality is a way of doing business. It starts on day one, from our first meeting and runs through everything we do:
- Design, planning and building your project, on-time and on-budget.
How we define “Quality”
Here are a few examples of what we mean by quality and what you can expect when we do your renovation:
Award winning – The first and only company to win both the “Best Home Designer” and the “Best Renovator” categories in Ottawa six years in a row.
We cut and install properly the first time to ensure there are no gaps that require gobs of ugly filler
We glue the corners on casings
to reduce cracking by over 95%
We only use kiln dried material
for all OakWood projects to ensure less shrinkage and drywall cracking
Our minimum standards exceed all Ontario Building Code standards
, from foundation work through framing and finishing work
We work only with the best Suppliers and Trade Partners
available in the Ottawa region – these are professionals that share our passion and ethics for doing top quality work
We are one of the first builders in Ottawa to use a professional Project Scheduling and CRM system
to keep you informed and up to date on the progress of your project
