Kitchen Renovation

We renovated our kitchen through OGC in March 2018. Nick, Tannie, Paolo and Jordan guided us through each step of the process. We were consulted throughout to ensure that each feature of our kitchen met to our satisfaction. The entire renovation was completed in a record three weeks and the team worked through weekends to ensure that we were enjoying our kitchen as soon as possible. Tools were put away safely (a big concern with young children in the house) and the team made all reasonable effort to accommodate our work schedules and vacation so that we would still have some semblance of ‘normalcy’ while work was done on the house. The team was easy to communicate with and delivered a fantastic end-product. They were also very personable and clearly took pride in their work. We would not hesitate to use OGC for future projects or to recommend them.

Disappointing

We used OGC for a major kitchen renovation and other small items in 2016. The project started out well but quickly went downhill with numerous delays and long lags between different teams coming in. We found the trades they used to be generally unqualified except for the tiler. They seemed more like jacks of all trades rather than a high end finishing team. The main sub they used could not even hang doors properly. The project manager was checked out, unresponsive and not helpful. It took almost 8 months to get all the deficiencies cleaned up. I would definately not recommend them for a high end kitchen. Details and high quality finishing is not their strong suit.

Company Response

Due to the anonymity of the post we can't verify this review, especially because we just received it now for a project from 2 years ago. We specialize in high-end kitchens and would love to show some of our prospective clients some of our existing work and to speak to an existing client. All of our homeowners are more than happy to show off their beautiful new renovation. Sometimes their are delays between our cabinet makers and other trades, but we are only talking a few days here and there. Thank you for complementing our tilers, these are our in-house tilers that have worked for us for many years. Our cabinet makers are perfectionists and build beautiful custom work, please ask about visiting our woodworking shop to see their work first hand. We do not leave a clients home until everything is perfect. Sometimes this means a few adjustments at the end of the project. Our Project Managers have worked for us for many years, we encourage our clients to meet with them before they sign on to a job. We have an industry leading warranty to rectify any issues you may have, please reach out to our office to discuss any possible warranty issues. Regards,

Extremely satisfied with major refinishing

I hired OGC to do extensive refinishing throughout my whole house, and am extremely happy with the process and the end result. The project involved replacing all the floors, trim (baseboard, door/window casing, adding crown molding), interior doors, and lighting fixtures through the whole house, as well as completely re-doing both bathrooms, adding a built in closet to the master bedroom, and a built-in fireplace/bookcase unit to the living room (plus a few other odds & ends). The whole team worked well together from the initial planning and designing (Nick, Maria), through to coordinating the various tradespeople to keep the work moving efficiently. Communicating with the project manager (Allan) & financial department (Fatima) was quick and easy. The work done by the whole team is top-notch, which all my friends & family will attest to. Finally, I appreciate that all the work is warrantied, and that all of that is dealt with by a single company. I’d definitely recommend OCG to anyone looking to do major renovations to their home.

Kitchen, main floor hardwood

Right from the initial meeting/consultation, we found the OGC team really pleasant, knowledgeable and all around fun to work with. They were very consistent time wise. The team showed up every day. They worked conscientiously, and cleanly, which was really important to us. During the project, they made recommendations that were beneficial to the long term end result, such as changing our kitchen floor from wood to ceramic. This was suggested by the project manager and floor layer who were concerned with durability. This is just an example of the care we experienced from the team throughout. As with any major reno, we did experience some hiccups, but Allan O. always made himself available to make sure all our needs were met to our utmost satisfaction, including when we needed a touch up done a couple of months ago, 10 months after our project was completed! We love how everything turned out and we love our home! Thank you OGC!

Kitchen Renovation - Replacement Issue

I had a kitchen renovation completed about 2 years ago by Ottawa General Contractors. Recently I started having trouble with the new sink and faucet. I contacted both Ottawa General Contractors and Pearl Faucets. Both of these companies, working in cooperation, and had the issue fixed with a replacement faucet head in under a week. I was very pleased with both companies and their prompt response.

Full Residencial Main Floor Renovation

From initial planning, to completion, our full kitchen, greatroom, dining room and powder room reno was handled extremely professionally. The team assigned to our project was helpful, knowledgeable and courteous and the tradesmen took extreme pride in getting it the way we wanted. Most of the suppliers suggested to us by OGC were bang on and any hiccups were fixed quickly and properly. One hiccup was the company used by OGC to provide the garbage bin ripped our driveway up....without a pause, OGC said it would be looked after....
Our kitchen is perfect...our dining and great room are fantastic and our new powder room is exactly how it should be. We were promised a 5 to 6 week time line to completion and we signed off exactly 1 week earlier than agreed on....Reno's aren't easy and you hear a lot of horror stories but if you do your homework and find the right people to help you plan and steer you in the right direction..that's half the battle.....not saying we would do it again but we wouldn't give up the experience....Great job Guys.. we are so pleased with the result.
