Testimonials

We are very pleased with our new custom designed cottage and boathouse. WCL was recommended to us and because we are from the US, it was very important to have someone trustworthy as we were not able to personally check on progress. Wicks Construction went above and beyond in so many ways. We could always reach them either by phone or email. They worked with the local authorities to acquire the variances and permits needed, they kept us updated on progress and provided regular cost reporting. Very professional both on site and in the office.

We passed all the building inspections without any issues. We have now hired them to work on our personal cottage property.

We were very pleased with the service provided by Wicks Construction and impressed with the relationship they have forged with their subtrades. We now have a beautiful stone fireplace, hot tub and stone flooring in our new Muskoka room as well as a large stone BBQ on our new upper deck. The quality of the workmanship is impressive. We would highly recommend them to others considering using them.

Testimonials

We love our new addition. Wicks Construction provided some great ideas to save costs and yet still end up with a high end product. The subtrades are very committed to WCL, always arrived as scheduled, and did a great job. We made many changes as the project developed and these were done efficiently to minimize the extra costs. Both the management and the workers are very friendly and they provide a very professional service both on site and from a paperwork perspective. Good communication on progress, the jobsite was always tidy, and they adhered to a high standard of safety for the workers. We think Wicks Construction has a great team and we highly recommend them.
