Best of Houzz Service Award, 2019

We have been awarded the Best Service Award from Houzz for the Second year in a row. This is no small feat and we are thrilled by this recognition. Why should this matter when selecting a project manager/contractor for your Muskoka project? It matters because it tells you that you can rely on us to deliver excellent results, that we deliver on our promises, that we are able to connect all of the various people, trades, permits, and skills needed to successfully complete your project. This award matters because it is a symbol of superior customer service. And that’s why our family business has been around for decades; not just chasing the biggest or most lucrative deals to earn a profit. Steady, reliable, honest, and skilled craftsmen who love what they do.
