Belated Review

Scott and Laurie did a basement renovation for us 4 years ago. As can be expected with any significant reno, there might be some bumps along the way but Scott and Laurie worked with us to get through them all. In the end, we were very satisfied with the end result. They have a great crew of subcontractors, some of whom we have since contacted to have other work done. We still contact Laurie for references and contact info! Would highly recommend and hope to work with them again some day on another project!

Hello Spud
It was a pleasure working with you. I always say construction is not as straight forward as making a bottle of ketchup but the end result lasts much longer! We are pleased you were happy with the results and hope you are sharing many family memories in the new space. We hope to work with you in the future and we don't mind referring professional trades to you.
All the best,
The Will Construct by Design Team

Amazing Fireplace feature

Beyond my expectations! Scott kept us informed every step of the way. We have used Scott before and will again. He's given us a rare gift in the renovation industry-Trust. No better peace of mind than that.

Kitchen in Markham

Professional and friendly service. Scott, Jay and Brandon did an outstanding job transforming my small 35 year old kitchen into an open concept design. They were punctual, tidy and clean. Always updating me on timelines and next steps. Helpful in doing an extra task when asked. Great customer service. Highly recommended!
Great job Will Construct by Design.

Basement Reno

Fantastic experience working with Scott, Laurie, Jay and Brandon! From start to finish it was an easy process with great communication along the way. Very friendly and professional. Easy to make changes to the scope of work and came in on budget. My wife and I were very happy with the renovation and we definitely recommend Scott and his Team!

Thank you Will Construct By Design!

Major renovation

We did a major renovation on our house adding four bathrooms and a new kitchen and redoing the basement. We also took out a number of walls and put in a new back deck. The guys in Scott's team could not be nicer and more professional. Even through Covid they were very attentive to our needs and did their absolute best to keep the work going in the most difficult of situations. We would not hesitate to recommend them in an instant. We are very happy with our home now and if there is any problem Scott will come by at the drop of a hat. You should definitely give these guys a call.

Custom Shed

For quite some time, we have been needed a new shed. Our old one was delapodated and falling appart. We knew we wanted to step it up a bit and wanted something custom. We reached out to Scott and his team because we knew they could give us exactly what we wanted. After researching endless ideas on Pinterest we finally found the perfect shed. We literally showed Scott, Oho, Jay and Brandon a picture and they created the exact replica of the shed we fell in love with. We could not be happier. Jay and Oho were here the majority of the time and Brandon came towards the end. They were professional, courteous and so easy to get along with. Given the current climate, they always took proper precautions and were extremely respectful. I would recommed this team to anyone in need of a renovation large or small!!

Hello Katherine

Our team love building custom! They had a great time doing it and we are pleased that you are happy with it. Your children are amazing and the team enjoyed their interactions with the whole family. I guess you will enjoy the shed next year, so stay safe until then. Thank you so much for your wonderful review and kind words.

We hope to work with you again in the future.

Load bearing wall removal, pot lights etc

We are very glad we found this company. My wife and I decided to have the load bearing wall removed between our kitchen and living room in our two story. We reached out to a few businesses and had received some quotes but after meeting Scott and speaking to Laurie i knew we were goinf to choose them.

Laurie was awesome in understanding what we were looking for and answering my questions to help me make an informed decision.

Scott came to do the consult and his knowledge and straightforward approach gave me confidence that he knew exactly what he was doing.

Scott and Jay did the work and being we dont get to see people very often with all thats going on it was great having them around.

They were excellent! As does happen, there were a few unforeseen vents, plumbing and the like that required a change in the scope of work and they made sure to inform me and provide theyre suggestions so that i could make informed decisions.

From start to finish it was a great process. We're very happy to have chosen Scott, Laurie and Jay to do the work and i would happily recommend them to anyone and work with them on any project in the future.

***** GARAGE FAIL *****

When Scott first visited my garage, he urged me to accept his renovation proposal, otherwise "you're 30 to 40 grand into it. Why? Why pay so much?" Subsequently, I received a written quote from him for $24,968.50 + HST. Based on his proposed design, he asked for and I gave him a deposit of $3,320.50 to begin.
While I had not asked for any changes to the original design, Nabeel the Professional Engineer, who had also visited the site, created 3 sets of drawings in total for this project.
On the day I was to sign for the building permit, Scott said that he had to change the design in order to meet the Building Code. He left a second quote with me.
This second quote was so confusing that I had to look into it and calculate the final price myself. It said that the "Costing" was $42,267.70 + HST, by my calculation totalling $47,762.50. But when I totalled the payments listed on the quote, again by myself, the total came to $49,853.00.
I believe that this was done deliberately to try to cover up that ***** THE PRICE HAD EFFECTIVELY DOUBLED! *****
The time of construction of the project had also increased from 1.5 weeks to 4 weeks.
I told Laurie that I had lost all trust in them and I wanted my full deposit back. She only gave me part of my money back and still refuses to refund $1866.50 for drawings that do not meet the Building Code and which I cannot use.
Scott and Nabeel the Professional Engineer should have produced a design to Code from the very beginning, and Scott and Laurie should not have switched the quote to something that was not agreed on and does not fit my budget. Yet they expect me to pay for their mistakes!
My wholehearted advice to you is:
***** STAY AWAY! I COULD NOT TRUST THEM WITH MY HARD-EARNED MONEY! *****

Hello Richard

We are sorry to hear that you were not 100% satisfied with our dealings. We pride ourselves on being open and honest with everyone we work with.

We provide the best quality and build equity into every home we work on and will continue to do so in the future.

We find it disheartening that even though Scott had visited your home on 4 occasions, there still seemed to be a misunderstanding of the process. Laurie also explained the numbers on the contract to you on several occasions.

We suggested a repair of your garage to help preserve your memory of your Father's build as well as lowering the expense of a complete new build, which would have been a much larger investment. Not to mention unnecessary materials going to the landfill.

You signed and paid for the drawings to be done by the Engineer. We have provided you with hard and electronic copies of the drawing to proceed with other quotes and to apply for your permit. We have filled out all the forms on your behalf for the City so it will be just a matter for you to file electronically.

We have refunded you the permit cost and the deposit on the build. The only funds that were processed were to have the drawings prepared as you requested by the Engineer and are in your possession.

Once again, we are sorry that you were not satisfied with the outcome as we take pride in our work as well as building trusting relationships in all aspects of our lives, business and personal. I believe anyone reading this will see by reviewing our other positive reviews and acknowledgements for being awarded 3 years in a row the 'Best Of' award.

We wish you all the best with your project.

Deck

I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Will Construct by Design. From beginning to end, the process was seamless and surprisingly enjoyable. Scott provided us with a competitively priced quote and worked with us to customize the deck to our liking. Laurie, Scott, and Jay were a pleasure to work with - they were professional, fun, and are genuinely good people. Scott & Jay's workmanship was top-notch; they put so much care into little details that made the overall look of the deck beautiful. I would 100% recommend them for reno projects; we will definitely be calling them again! Thank you guys for giving us a lovely outdoor space to enjoy.
