It's now been ten months since the completion of our kitchen and front entry re-design. We're very pleased with the results and with our experience working with Oakwood.

Upon giving the go-ahead the process of preconstruction meetings really helped make sure that we were on the same page about what would happen and the scheduling. During the work we found that both the Oakwood workers and the sub-trades were both professional and friendly. We also had occasion to call upon Oakwood for some post-project service. Again the response and service provided was prompt and professional.

We're really enjoying our expanded kitchen and our opened-up front entrance. The project has given our 1970s era house an up-to-date feel and makes entertaining much more enjoyable.

Unfortunately, I bought a home built by Wallmark.
I expected a quality, well-built home –after all I paid them over a million dollars for it. While they will court you before you sign on the dotted line, once they get your signature and a deposit, things will change. After that, you are nothing to them. In my case they built a substandard home, with doors that do not close. Or open. With floors that squeak like a herd of hungry mice every time you take a step. With shower stalls that do not drain water and faucets that leak. The list goes on and on. I have talked to many of my neighbors in the same subdivision – they also have the same problems with Wallmark.
While I accept the fact that we all make mistakes, it’s how the mistakes are dealt with. Wallmark essentially told me to go and fly a kite. They don’t have to fix anything. They already have my money.
Well, now you know about Wallmark, behave accordingly…

I purchased a presale condo from them in January of 2013, before framing had begun. Before I purchased, I inquired about a bunch of things that I had hoped to change about the suite. The sales person assured me that I could customize the home and make it my own.

Of course I was generally too concerned with keeping an upbeat relationship with their sales person to demand that she put these items in writing. She would insist that it was not the right time, and as per an e-mail I received that this was the following procedure:

"If you are wanting to make changes to your island, cabinets, flooring etc. we actually do that seperately once we start framing. Any changes would be priced out, a credit would be determined for the standard we put in and then you would decide if the upcharge for what you are changing is going to work for you. You are the only one to decide if you want to pay for the changes you are looking for once I provide the upgrade price to you. If you wish to proceed, then we put all of the information on a work order and that is submitted with payment for the changes. This does not become part of the original purchase agreement."

After being told that all of the items I was promised were not an option (by the owner), I decided that I would try and file a Better Business Bureau complaint in hopes that we could come to some sort of compromise. (IE: OK you can have this but not this.) or (You can't have any of that stuff but sorry for the miscommunication between the builder and the sales person, so we'll offer you this upgrade at no charge). Instead, the sales person threatened to sue me for defamation. (Obviously without taking the time to lookup what that word means). Here's the e-mail:

"Please be advised I have forwarded all of your correspondence to my lawyer for slander and defamation.


Please do not contact me as I will have no further dealings with you.


I fully intend to file a Statement of Claim for damages and allegations made.

A copy of proceedings will be forwarded to my Company."

After receiving this I offered the builder a solution where the sales person would not receive commission on my sale, and instead the commission amount would be removed from my sale price. Why should this person make money off of me after threatening to sue me?

This was also rejected.

Bottom line - if you don't want to be sued I suggest you build with another company.

he was excellent! He consulted with me every step of the renovation process. He provided an estimate and warned me each time I exceeded it. The work was excellent and professional. The quality of everything was excellent. The sub contractors were all very good. I am very satisfied with how everything turned out. No complaints whatsoever. I would highly recommend them!

Sloot Construction made the building of our home an absolute nightmare! Throughout the year-long build (which they still have yet to complete), Sloot Construction demonstrated questionable invoicing practices, an overwhelming lack of site supervision, lack of knowledge of the building code and/or Energy Star requirements, and a complete disregard for quality workmanship. The owner, John Sloot, was verbally abusive and refused to meet with the home owners to resolve outstanding issues created by Sloot Construction. PLEAS FIND ANOTHER BUILDER TO BUILD YOUR HOME...STAY AWAY FROM SLOOT CONSTRUCTION!!

VERY QUICKLY! September 14, 2013

Doorcare provided me with some very high quality repairs when the set at my business broke. I was glad that they had so much experience with commercial doors, because it enabled them to do the repairs very quickly.

ADVANCED CONSTRUCTION in Sudbury, Ontario is responsible for the workmanship you see in these photos. My garage floor has dropped by at least three inches. There are huge cracks in both garage and house foundations... where you can see through to outside. The garage floor has HUGE cracks. And some of the blocks on the garage foundation have actually shifted off somewhat. And when asked to fix, they parged a bit... never came back to fix anything. When contacted again, they ignore me.

A & S HOMES
25 Scurfield Blvd , Winnipeg , MB
category: Contracting


Just finished purchasing an A&S homes, chosen by the quality workmanship this company offers.
Well, I WAS WRONG! After seeing the various stages of work being performed, I realized I was wrong all the way to the end.
Just got a walk through and was even more disappointed! The workmanship was very poor at best, painting missing, missing light switches, glue all over the hardwood flooring, house inside all over very dirty (and I was told that A&S only does a thoroughly cleaning when is a show home otherwise they just do a general fast cleaning), well when you pay half a million dollars for a property you would expect the house at least to be presentable in a great way, NOT!
I am not dome yet, holes on the doors, holes on the walls hidden by carpets, damaged tub, and much much more. No driveway or garage floor done, and now it is raining and I cannot move in due to too much mud on the construction zone!
I must say I will not recommend anymore an A&S home to anyone if this is the way they present themselves and the company!
VERY VERY DISPOINTED!

DOORCARE
141-6200 #803 McKay Ave , Burnaby , BC
category: Contracting

IMPRESSIVE May 23, 2013

Doorcare was impressively cheap for how much work they did for me. They fixed several problems that I was having with the garage door making very painful noises. The job took them about two hours, and the final bill was extremely reasonable for that amount.
