We hired Oneway to renovate our downstairs bathroom and paid a 1/3 deposit in May 2019. Oneway gave us a start date of November 2019, then pushed it to January 2020, then February 21, 2020. They came in for a brief period and tore out our old bathroom, then left in March 2020 with the COVID shutdown. Since then they have made no attempt to reschedule or give us any idea of if, when or how this work will be completed. When the government determined work such as this job could continue, we even offered to leave the house for two weeks for their staff to work alone our home. To all our emails and offers of compromise, they offer scheduling excuses and refuse to confirm if they are working on other projects. All they have said is they are having trouble getting workers during COVID. We have paid them just under $20,000 to date. We have asked them if they would like to close out the job and return the money we paid for work not completed since they are unable to manage scheduling, with no response. In fact they have stopped responding to our messages (phone, email or text), and have gone so far as to block my wife's phone number. December 2020- still no word after letters emailed and sent.
We just had main floor and kitchen renovation including wall removal done by Oneway Construction Inc. Wesley and the rest of the team made the whole process smooth, easy and much less stressful than we thought it would ever be. They came up with great design ideas and listened carefully to what we wanted. Their workers were SO clean, every night when we came home we were able to just relax. With their meticulous attention to detail, we now have an absolutely stunning kitchen. We thank them for adding value to our home. Everyone who visits us is wowed by our new kitchen. We would recommend them to anyone without hesitation and will have them back to do more work for us in the future.
We hired this firm to do some repairs on our home in order to sell. We were moving to Halifax
and asked if the work could be done before our move. We were verbally assured it would be so went ahead with hiring Oneway construction.
We were told for weeks on end that the work would commence at the end of the week and each end of week came and went and nothing. Three days before our movers arrived the work had not commenced and we were told due to a family crisis that Oneway would not be starting any new projects at that time. We were respectful of this situation but as a result we were no longer in a position to wait as we had a vacant house for sale and we were living in Halifax. We sold our home "as is" and cancelled with Oneway.
It is not our fault that they could not fulfill the contract in the time we needed and understood to have agreed upon.
We have asked for our deposit back for months to no avail. We have sent emails and phone messages and tried to send two Registered letters by mail. Both letters were returned as the address on the contract/business website is not complete. We paid a deposit of 8,249.00 for work which did not commence.
This firm made one response on November 7th telling us they would get back to us at the end of the week. The end of the week came and went. We heard nothing until January 2019 following this review.
This is no way to conduct business and we are very disappointed with the whole experience to date.
Our response to Oneway's statement of not hearing from us.
We made a complaint to the BBB of Ottawa and Oneway ignored all three notices from the BBB.
I have documented all my emails with dates sent. My Son called and spoke to Delia on October 2, 2018. He told her of the situation and she said she was not in the office at that time and would get back to him on it. No one from the office followed up.
I called on October 18th and left a message asking that they return our call and get back to us.
They never did.
I feel I have been very patient in this matter. The refund cheque sent on Nov 7th in the post is for 6,186.75 which is 2062.25 less than our deposit? Not sure what the difference is as the work was not started?
UPDATE FROM November 7th, 2019 - one year later and no refund.
To date our deposit has not been refunded. We have had no follow up from Oneway construction since January 9th. They have not called us, emailed or sent a letter to date. They are well aware that the cheque never arrived. Their own accounting would also confirm by now that no transfer of funds has taken place. On Nov 7th they said a refund was sent which confirms that we are INDEED OWED one. We cancelled with them August 23rd, 2018!
Actions speak louder than words. Their statement below made in January/2019 of their intent to rectify this immediately at this point rings hollow and empty.
I do not recommend doing business with them.
First, we would like to apologise for your disappointment.
Following our conversation on November 7th, 2018. We have mailed out a cheque refund along with a letter of cancellation-to the given address. If you haven t received it, please let us know immediately so we can investigate and cancel the payment as soon as possible.
Please note we have not received any calls, voicemails or emails in this regard. We did have issues with the email providers with outgoing/incoming emails, but it s resolved now.
We sincerely apologise for this inconvenience as we strive in customer service and quality service. It is our best intentions to get this solved and rectified immediately.
My experience with Oneway Construction was very unpleasant. Here are the course of events.
February 14, 2018- signed a contract with Oneway Construction for bathroom and kitchen renovation. Gave Wesley Hunt a 50% deposit by cheque in the amount of $4,407, which was cashed immediately. Wesley verbally guaranteed that the work would be completed by April 30. By the end of April, Wesley apologized for not being able to start the job because of delays in previous projects (according to him) and said that he would start May 18 which did not happen.
May 22- Oneway Construction came and took measurements and Wesley said he would get back to me with a start date which he never did.
June 4- Oneway Construction e-mailed me that a relative was very sick and they couldn’t start any new projects. I was offered the option of getting a full deposit refund. The same day I e-mailed back that I did want a full deposit refund.
As of July 2, no refund has been given to me, even though I was promised several times that a certified cheque would be delivered to my home. Every time there was a different excuse why they couldn’t bring or mail the cheque. Also, they completely ignored a letter from a lawyer that I hired about demanding payment.
All previous reviews that I read about this company do not jibe with my experience, which is puzzling. Based on my interaction with Oneway Construction, they do not seem to have a code of ethics or professional behaviour. Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the quality of work as it was never delivered.
UPDATE: This update is in response to comments made by Wesley Hunt of Oneway Construction, regarding the above review. Unfortunately, the only truth in his comments is that eventually he did refund me the deposit. I will leave it at that.
To whom this may concern,
Mrs. Wolfe agreed to have her small repair project fit in between bigger projects when a time in the schedule became available. After only one week Mrs. Wolfe became very eager to have it done, even though the agreement was to fit her project when time became available, no set date was given. We received the deposit when the contract was signed, the deposit cheque was deposited two days later, not realizing this would be an issue.
We gave Mrs. Wolfe the option for refund of deposit since she decided not to wait any longer for when time became available between bigger projects as originally agreed upon. Mrs. Wolfe decided to terminate the contract- We processed the contract termination letter in a timely manner, and refund shortly after when the letter was signed. Unfortunately my mother has been diagnosed with advanced cancer and I had to go out of town for this purpose which delayed the cheque delivery by a couple of days. July 2nd was Canada day holiday, therefore the refund cheque was delivered on July 3rd in full when our offices reopened after the long weekend.
We kept contact with Mrs. Wolfe throughout the whole process. All of our customers have been more than understanding with my family's unfortunate situation except Mrs. Wolfe.
We wish Mrs. Wolfe and her family all the best and it's unfortunate that her experience with our company was disappointing as she states above. We strive in customer satisfaction and quality services.
