Upon recommendation from a friend, and faced with major renovation needs, we engaged Oakwood Construction as a general contractor in November 2011, and dealt with Irwin Stermer, a company principal. Over the course of the next several months, we undertook and completed all the projects listed above.
Never having done a job of this magnitude, and never having worked before with a general contractor, we had no idea what to expect, but in hindsight this was the best decision we could have made. Irwin took the time to meet with us several times to review what we wanted to do, and provide cost estimates which turned out to be quite accurate. He advised us of potential alternatives and the potential problems and opportunities of each. He was also straightforward about his own compensation.
Once we had agreed to proceed, he brought us 2-3 competitive quotes for each facet of the job. When problems cropped up, as they inevitably do in a renovation project, he calmly and efficiently dealt with each.
He was on site daily, supervising and coordinating. His strong history in custom home building allowed us to be serviced by an array of fine tradesmen and craftsmen, and he quarterbacked the entire operation.
We were and are very satisfied with the result, and would have no hesitation in recommending Oakwood Construction.
Since I was working on a limited budget, I found the initial meeting to be very informative and honest, being told what were essential repairs that should be attended to first, and what the costs would be, both with labour and material. The labour was wonderful, the work area was kept clean and tidy, and the total of the bill came in just under budget. I would highly recommend this company based on my experience with them, and they would definately be the first ones I'd call again with further home projects/repairs.
