We recently bought a house that hadn't been updated since the '70s. We contracted Steve to completely gut and renovate the entire main floor, removing all walls engineering a new vaulted ceiling, move the kitchen to a completely new location and rebuilt it entirely, substantially widen an opening between our split level floors, and install several new windows (in, for example, existing brick walls). He quoted us a very fair price, and we signed a straightforward contract. Steve worked with an excellent structural engineer to come up with drawings for the structural changes, and actually overbuilt beyond the plans with stronger materials (for example, using LVL beams instead of joist packs). We were worried we'd need some visible beams or posts, but he managed to vault the entire 34 x 23 foot main floor ceiling with no visible supports. We were very happy with how efficiently he and his crew conducted demolition and rebuilt the key structure.
The entire process was remarkably smooth, especially considering the global supply chain issues, which Steve was kind to notify us of early, so we could get ahead of the game and order some materials long in advance. We had to wait a few months to get our Ikea cabinets, but everyone has been in the same boat with Covid. Steve showed up nearly every day, and communicated with us regularly. He's a friendly guy and we always felt like we could discuss where the project was and where it was going with him.
When major problems arose, he always found excellent solutions. For example, we wanted to install a new 60+ inch wide picture frame window in a brick wall, and when Steve opened the drywall, he discovered a large HVAC duct running through the middle of where the window was supposed to go. At first it seemed like we were stuck, but then he suggested removing that duct and rerouting air to the master bathroom vent that it served by taking supply from the nearby master closet ductwork instead.
The end result is absolutely beautiful, and we could write about lots of details, but pictures probably do a better job, so we've attached plenty. Some of the pictures compare several views before and after. We're pretty handy, and we're DIYing a lot of work elsewhere in the house, so it won't be finished for a long time, but Steve helped us quickly get the house to a point where it's livable (and lovable). Thanks Steve!
We hired Steve and his crew to renovate our 25 year old kitchen that was in need of updating.
Our kitchen was gutted and all new cupboards and flooring were installed and it looks great.
The boys were able to overcome obstacles as they arose even during covid in order to finish the job.
He and the people he has working for him are great and are willing to go the extra mile for the client.
OMC Contracting recently completed a basement renovation for us. We are thrilled with our reclaimed space and the knowledge that the structural elements (e.g., joists, wiring) have been expertly updated. Steve answered questions promptly and consistently checked in with us during the entire process. The team cleaned up each day and we appreciated the positive rapport between team members and with Steve himself. We look forward to working with OMC Contracting on any future projects.

Steve and team fully renovated the main floor of a house I bought in Waterloo. From the first meeting, I knew Steve could be trusted - that is so important when choosing a contractor.
Steve worked with me on the scope of work and a fair estimate. When the job started his crew where efficient and completed a major demo without a hiccup. When it came time to rebuild, Steve brought in a structural engineer and came up with some great recommendations on removing walls and redesigning things. When he did the work, I was even more impressed - Steve fixed several major structural flaws in the original build and opened the main floor up in a way beyond my imagination.
Steve renovated the master ensuite bathroom, powder room, main floor flooring and installed a brand new kitchen with crown moulding - wow, it looks stunning. Steve had several challenges with the kitchen - but he made it all work. Add in the fact that he stayed on the job during COVID, and Steve is a superstar! Friendly, loves a good laugh and is straightforward. You can't ask for anything more.
I want to thank Steve and his crew for transforming my house, for working with me and for making my wife happy with the results. We get so many compliments on the work, and Steve has added so much value to the house.
