Jason at Oak Ridge is excellent. The budget he gave us for the renovation our entire upper floor was pretty much bang on. We had absolutely no trouble with them at all. In fact, there was a spot on the floor that my wife didn’t like and Jason came back and fixed it right away which most contractors wouldn’t do. I’m already trying to book him again for another job.
I am very happy with the job Oak Ridge did on an addition to my house. The work was perfectly scheduled and would say 90 per cent of it was perfect. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone that needs this kind of work done.
My husband and I recently had Oak Ridge Custom Homes do a full gut on our Bloor West Village home. We have many friends in the area that scared us about doing such a large renovation, which put me in an uneasy state of mind. We did our homework, and interviewed several contractors prior to hiring Jason from Oak Ridge Custom Homes. This was by far the largest renovation we have ever done, and we wanted to ensure it was done right. The entire house was gutted; the basement was lowered, a load bearing wall on the main floor was removed, and Jason and his team installed new drywall, electrical, plumbing, heating and insulation. We also had all new finishes, trim, bathroom and kitchen done. Jason is very knowledgeable in the industry, and he put us at ease and kept us apprised of the progress from the get go. He put us in touch with his Interior Designer which made the entire process seamless. The project took about 5 months to complete and it turned out spectacular! We have had numerous complements on our home from family and friends since we moved back in – it was well worth it! Thank you so much Jason for your professionalism and dedication. You and your trades are exceptional and your workmanship is impeccable. We now have a brand new home! I will gladly refer you to all my friends and family, and will definitely hire you in the future.
My wife and I interviewed nine contractors before deciding on Oak Ridge Custom Homes. Jason and his team did a wonderful job, and we are quite happy with the end result. The scope of the project involved taking down structural walls to achieve an open concept look, replacing all our flooring from carpet to site-finished hardwood floors, remodelling our kitchen and bathrooms, new staircase, all new trim, painting, and more. This project took 5 months to complete, which was a just a bit longer than estimated. Budget-wise, we went over what we had planned on spending; however, we did add to the original project. Make sure to negotiate all costs before hand and beware of “while-you’re-at-it”s, and you should have no surprises. There were a few hiccups along the way (we weren’t too happy with the painter), but Jason could always be reached to deal with issues that arose. We are thankful for his patience and guidance throughout the process. Jason and his team were professional, courteous, and friendly, and a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely give him a call when we plan our next project. Thank you Jason and team for our beautiful house transformation!
Thanks guys it was a pleasure to work with you and we look forward to working with you again in the future. It's great to hear your enjoying your home. Cheers!
Jay and his team worked on our Toronto home in the summer of 2012. They completely gutted the back of the house to build a new kitchen/backyard walk-out along with a 2nd storey addition above. We were thrilled with their work as they were respectful and meticulous with their clean-up at the end of every day and they were always pleasant to deal with. We were also as very pleased with the guidance in terms of materials/finishes as it became overwhelming at times and they were so knowledgeable. We felt they were efficient, timely and they helped us create the home we always envisioned. We have already passed along a few referrals to people in our neighbourhood who have seen their work!
My wife and I had been on the hunt for a qualified contractor for almost a year. After searching around and getting quotes and ideas from several companies We finally settled with the one company We found that shared our vision for what my wife and I wanted for our home; Oak Ridge Custom Homes. The company owner Jason was a pleasure to work along side with, through out everything. Jason took the time to explain everything step by step before, during and after the entire process. Any time My wife or myself had questions or concerns he was on site or simply a phone call away ready to answer any questions that I or my wife had.
We had the entire main floor completely gutted and re-done ( kitchen, Living room, bathrooms, dining room, pantry, flooring, tile, etc). Everything turned out better than we thought. It was especially intriguing to watch Jason turn all of our ideas into a reality and have his imagination and experience help us design our dream home.
I would recommend Oak Ridge Custom Homes to anybody who wants to work along side a company that will meet your budget, deadlines and has the patients and time management skills to do the job right the first time. We have used other contractors in the past and needless to say, Oak Ridge Custom Homes will be the company we use in the future.
Thanks again for putting up with me and my wife!
Let me first start by saying it was wonderful to work with such an honest and caring man. We had received a few quotes and this not being our first renovation, we were aware of the potential for problems and increase in costs. Jason's quote was the second highest we received. He was detailed, knowledgeable and easy to get a hold of and answered all our questions and concerns. Moving forward we did run into some issues but all costs and options were presented before moving forward. We did go over budget but most of that was from changes, product upgrades, electrical and plumbing upgrades. The home we purchased is approximately 100 years old, you would never know walking through the front door. This spring we will have Jason and his team back to complete the outside with stone and stucco and our landscaping. It is a pleasure to write a positive review for Oakridge Custom Homes; Thank you for all your hard work because of you the whole experience was tolerable...we love our home!!!!
We were very nervous selecting a contractor to renovate our kitchen. We actually put it off for some time because of the fear of not knowing how to select the right contractor. I'm not sure if we did enough homework or we just lucked out but we hired Jason from Oak Ridge Custom Homes.
The project was started when they said they were going to start and finished when they said it would be finished. The cost was exactly what they said it would be with a couple of adjustments as the result of us changing details in the midst of the project. The adjustments were communicated clearly at the time of any changes we requested and there were no surprises.
The workmanship of Jason's team was outstanding. In addition to their talents in their respective trades, everyone was the perfect balance between professional and friendly.
We are beyond thrilled with our new kitchen and would recommend Oak Ridge Custom Homes to anyone. We are now looking forward to a complete bathroom remodel in the near future.
Thanks Jason!!! I guess we'll be talking again soon!
After several years of living through small renovations, we decided to completely gut and renovate our 1896 home. Given that it is an older home that has been in our family for many years, we wanted to ensure that we found the right builder to restore it with care and shared vision. We interviewed several builders prior to making our decision. We are SO happy that we decided to go with Jason and Oak Ridge Custom Homes. From the very beginning, Jason's responsiveness, attention to detail and organizational skills put us at ease. We did not have to call to check in on progress or status because he contacted us nearly every day to keep us informed at each stage of the project. As busy people (moving, working and pregnant), this gesture was so significant in alleviating stress and allowing us to enjoy the process.
The project involved gutting and transforming all three floors, (insulating, drywall, flooring, all new electrical, plumbing, HVAC, basement waterproofing and all finishes). The tradespeople working with Jason were always pleasant, respectful and highly skilled. they had to work around us at the completion of the project because we had a baby and had to move back in and they were careful to value our space and keep the intrusion to a minimum. The finished product is absolutely stunning, the "before and afters" astonishing. Jason has managed to give us all the comforts and beauty of a new house while maintaining the traditon of this 100 year old home. It's bright, spacious and the work is of high quality. We have gotten a lot of favourable feedback from friends about the custom elements of the home and the beautiful trimwork. We are unbelievably pleased with how things turned out and have no regrets. Overall, working with Jason and his team was akin to working with a very good friend. He was easy-going and professional- we trusted him a great deal and he kept on task and budget. He was very fair, helpful and thoughtful. When small problems came up, he addressed them immediately, shielding us from any undue stress or worry. Jason made sure we were completely satisfied upon completion. We enjoyed the process and are thrilled with our new space to enjoy and to raise our new family in. Thank you!!
