We have worked with Conestogo Carpenters to undertake renovations of two historic homes over the past five years as well as to build a large number of barns, storage facilities and garages. The heritage home renovations were challenging, given our goal to retain as much of the historic value and original building materials as possible. Conestogo Carpenters not only understood and shared our vision of how to simultaneously restore and renovate these homes to bring them into the 21st century, but also had the unique expertise, and know-how to address the complex traditional building techniques required by these renovations. We could not be happier with the design, high caliber of workmanship, and state of the art innovations that were incorporated into these renovations. Efficient, reliable, ethical and entirely dependable! You could not wish for a better organization to work with in terms of building or renovating your home, barns or outbuildings!

My wife and I had Conestogo build a new home for us in 2019, and they did an excellent job. Right from beginning to end it was a very positive experience for us. I am in the design & construction industry myself, and we have built a home previous to this one so we knew a little bit about what to expect. Conestogo exceeded our expectations and we will have them quote on finishing our basement in the next couple years.

We bought a home built by Conestogo Carpenters. I got to know some of the crew during this process and watched them build other homes in our area. I have found them to be very caring of their work and the end results are excellent. Their attitude towards quality is very good. They also provided good tips and advice throughout the process. Very customer service focused. They also bring on board other trades people with the same attitude. I was so satisfied that they are now doing a major addition to my daughter's home. I would highly recommend them.

Over the last couple of years we've been through 2 MAJOR renovations at our farm. From the very first time we met our site manager, the detailed drawings done to completion. Our experience was second to none. The follow up was incredible and if there was ever something not done to our satisfaction, you came back with no resistance. We especially enjoyed you personally coming out to view what your team members had done for us after the job was done. If your clients ever need a recommendation from me, don't hesitate to connect. Thanks again for an enjoyable reconstruction.

What started as a simple request for a quotation to frame our new house turned into one of the best experiences that we have had in quite some time.
Clayton from the office had given us some options regarding some additional work that we might be interested in.
This conversation led to Conestogo Carpenters supplying the complete lumber package, roofing of our choice, complete siding package & all exterior windows & doors from their premier supplier all priced within reason.
We were given a start & completion date to which they adhered to with no exceptions.
Javin, Jeremy & Charlie arrived every day on time with no time wasted on getting to their tasks of the day.
All of the workers on site were very professional & well learned in all of the aspects of completing our new house. They required no supervision & when a question or request did arise the issues were discussed & dealt with immediately. Their schedule allowed us to bring in the remainder of our sub trades on time to complete the house in a timely fashion.
The complete office staff were always available & willing to answer all questions with Clayton keeping us informed.
The carpenters on site were true tradesmen & gentlemen with a keen eye for details never losing sight of the end goal.
In conclusion we would like to extend the most heartfelt thank you for a job well done which exceeded all expectations & would have no hesitation for Conestogo Carpenters to return for any project that we could have in the future.

We were first introduced to Conestogo Carpenters in Parry Sound in the summer of 2016 when we were eating at Pizza Hut. Their truck came into the parking lot and we noticed the name, which along with the 519 telephone number told us they were from the K-W area. The three young men who came into the restaurant were clean-cut and mild mannered and we introduced ourselves. We learned that they were working on a new cottage/house build 40 minutes northeast of Parry Sound. They invited us to come out and see the project, which we did a few days later.
We had had a building lot in Linwood since 2003 and were considering finally building on the site. After speaking with the men and looking at the project they were completing we contacted Ralph at the office in St. Jacobs and over a number of weeks worked with Jeremy to develop a final plan which they built for us starting in September 2016.
The process went very well. All of the staff were a pleasure to work with. Jeremy had design ideas that meshed well with our thoughts and the men on site were always hard working, polite and conscientious.
it was a pleasure to work with a group who consistently displayed honesty, integrity and high quality workmanship.
We will refer anyone we know who is considering a building project to Conestogo, confident that they will receive good value for their investment and that their experience will be very satisfying.

My experience with "Conestogo Carpenters" is nothing short of exceptional.
When I decided to build my shop/garage, I did my research and saw various builds. However the builders that stood out was Conestogo. There workmanship, quality of work and overall price surpassed the rest.
Ralph, Marvin & Cecil listened to my ideas and came up with a design that I was comfortable with.
As for the carpenters, the crew was young, polite and detailed. They required no supervision, worked long hours and always tidied the site at the end of the day.
There is no question that I will definitely recommend "Conestogo Carpenters", to all my friends.
Thank you again guys see you on my next project.
P.S. Lastly, I reside in New Tecumseth you guys have other fans of your work. I constantly have strangers dropping in and asking questions about the build and where told that the By-law officers and Planning department tell prospects to take note of your work!

I would like to thank you, Cecil and all the people who worked on the renovation to my house.
You've done a FANTASTIC job!
I, my daughter and her family are extremely happy with the renovation!
All the best to you all,
Christine Kurtz Landy
There are not enough stars to say how great this place is for their work. I have used them many times and will continue to. I have used another company once and the last and their workmanship does not compare as well as their service and friendly attitude.

Be prepared if you choose Conestogo Carpenters for your renovations to have the work done really well and on time. I have nothing but praise for the extensive renovation work that Ron, Jeremy, Javin and the rest of the crew did on my home. The work included - dormer addition on second floor, bathroom complete reno, add a bathroom, sunroom addition, new flooring throughout the house and many little additional 'might as well' jobs that they were very flexible about.
I was also very pleased with all of the suppliers that they recommended as well. Everyone delivered on time and with great craftsmanship.
Thanks to Conestogo Carpenters I now have my perfect home.

We were looking for our dream cottage and Conestogo Carpenters delivered just that. From the initial stages of quoting, right through end of project, we found Jeremy and his crew to be conscientious, hard-working, skilled, and honest. Helpful suggestions were also brought forward along the way. They do great work, and a lot of the work themselves, any sub-trades they brought in were also superior. We would absolutely use them again!

Dear Mr. Martin:
I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you. However, I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the work your colleagues are carrying out at our property. They truly are amazing: polite, capable, and dedicated workers. All qualities I respect. For thirty-one years I was a Professor of Communications and an academic administrator (Chair of the School of Radio and Television Arts, Faculty of Communications and Design) at Ryerson University in Toronto, and I came in contact with many talented young people. Your group – the two Marvins, Javin, Cecil, (and earlier, Brandon, Matt, and Jeremy) – are truly outstanding individuals.
I know that my son shares the same view of Conestogo. His house in Dundas is very beautiful and he constantly talks of the excellent work carried out by your team and how you made his life – during an extensive renovation – easier. The original reference to work with Conestogo came from a golf course owner. You had installed bridges at a golf course she and her husband owned and she was delighted with the work.
Right from the first meeting with Marvin your colleagues inspire confidence. To a man, they tend to be low key (which I admired), honest, and thorough. Marvin struck me as steady source of reliable information and a man completely in command of his craft. The other Marvin has been superb at orchestrating the job site and keeping everything moving along. He has very highly developed “people skills” and I’ve watched how gently he deals with each of the individuals involved in the refit of our property. I know that Donna-Lee has been grateful for his guidance and expertise. In short, he is an excellent manager. He never bluffs or obfuscates. He’s a thoughtful person and a “problem solver”. It has been a great pleasure working with him. He is an exceptional person.
Javin, too, is a dedicated worker. He has a commitment to the task at hand that is inspiring. In fact, all of your crew members make me feel better about the world. Believe me, some of my other experiences with other trades and individuals have not been so positive. I would think, therefore, that you and your management colleagues deserve credit for attracting such capable men to your organization.
Earlier on, I had the opportunity to speak to Ralph. He, too, was kind and took the time to offer me some useful advice. There is something very beautiful about craftsmen who carry out their work in a serious way. My own father, another Robert, was a Scottish stonemason and I know how proud he was of his craft.
In summation, thank you and your associates for making our lives so much easier. Without Conestogo this project could have been a nightmare. My wife and I wish you well. You certainly deserve continued success. I know I will tell everyone I know how highly I value the contribution you have made to this project. I would count it as a special favour if you would thank all of the young people I have met in the course of this particular task.
You should be very proud of yourself and your organization. With great respect,
Chip PitfieldToronto client
These guys have done two major renovations for us. They are exceptional. They are professional. They are super-clean. They manage expectations perfectly. They don't require supervision. They exercise great judgement and, when uncertain, simply ask. The last small job they did for us we didn't even ask for a quote. I would trust these guys under any circumstances. They are also nice.
Excellent and conscientious workmanship
They performed a small renovation job for me. In addition to this I asked them to complete some aluminum work for me. Both were more than satisfactory and the price was quite reasonable! I would happily invite them back for more work!
Steve & Christie
We can’t thank you enough for the great work done on our barn project (especially by Ben)! Please also pass on our sincere thanks to the stone mason team as well. We truly appreciate all that was done for us.
