Construction and Renovating is in our blood

The Liptak family has a long history in the Ottawa construction industry dating back to 1956:

- In 1954 John Liptak Sr. came to Canada from Germany with a strong work ethic trained in the art of furniture making.

- He used his talents and expanded into home renovations because of the high demand for skilled labour.

- His son, John Liptak learned the business the business from the bottom up. Starting by cleaning jobsites at the age of 11 he graduated with honours and highest marks with both Ontario and Inter-provincial Carpenters Licenses in 1978. He is now President and CEO of OakWood.

- Growing up in this environment, with a keen sense of traditional building practices as well as the newest techniques and ideas, John has melded computer technology with the construction industry in the 1980's.

The next generation

Today, John works alongside the next generation of Liptak to take OakWood to new heights of excellence. Daughter, Patricia Liptak, continues to refine OakWood's approach and improve efficiencies. Patricia brings strong business metrics and legal skills into a process driven customer service centric company.

Process driven systems

Being very aware that today's homeowners have busy lifestyles has led John III and Patricia to put in place a unique Design+ Build process to ensure a worry free, painless renovation that is on-time and on-budget. The strength of the company is built on the principles of honesty & integrity' and OakWood takes great pride in the workmanship and dedication they provide to the homeowners.
