Regarding Alderwood Renovation | Construction.
During our renovations we found Peter and Spencer Alderwood to be professional, reliable and straight forward. They take great pride in their work always ensuring we are happy with the results. They are careful with whom they choose to do any electrical, plumbing or other specialized work requiring a permit. We would not hesitate to recommend the Alderwoods for any kind of carpentry, renovation, or other home related work.
Jennifer and I were planning our wedding in early 2012 when we decided to do some renovations at my place on Plante Drive in Ottawa. The plan was to redo the backyard, new cedar fencing, decking and pergola. When we saw firsthand the thought and care that Peter and Spencer Alderwood put into their design efforts and work, we were amazed and delighted. Every piece of cedar was carefully selected and crafted into handsome and sturdy fencing and decking. The attention to detail was so obvious, even sharp wooden edges were carefully sanded; nothing to splinter was allowed anywhere.
Seeing these results we decided to have the inside of my two story 1970's home renovated. The Alderwoods have extensive experience in home renovations. Starting with the basement, a variety of options were discussed with a plan and cost agreed upon. They commenced the real work, gutting the basement and building a new bedroom, living/entertainment space, built in closet, full 3 pc bath, office and large laundry/storage room. They then focused on the the first and second floors installing new flooring throughout, new bathroom fixtures in 3 locations with custom granite counter tops and custom shower enclosures. They replaced all interior doors, baseboard, window/door trim and moldings throughout the home, repaired ceilings and paint throughout. Everything done to perfection.
We were so pleased with these results, we decided to have the Alderwoods renovate Jennifer's 1950's bungalow before selling the house. Again a plan and cost was discussed and agreed upon. The basement a total gut and rebuild given a bedroom, laundry room, large bathroom, huge livving/family room and seperated mechanical room. The main floor was completely redone with a whole new kitchen, floors throughout, additional main bathroom, and enlargement of the master en-suite. We were able to sell the house in 2 days for a reasonable profit after renovations.
