Darwood Homes and Renos is delighted to share some of the comments our customers have left with us.

"We are in the process of having a garage/loft built, by "Darwood". Although we have co-constructed a couple of new houses, as well as had homes built for us, the proficient and expeditious manner with which Darwood works has been so impressive that we are entering into a second project with Darwood.

When your contractor is more passionate about the product/building than you are---that speaks for itself---it's Darwood."

"Our renovation experience with Darwood homes was exceptional from beginning to end. Rob, Pat and Matt were professional, courteous and highly skilled. The process was worry free and the end result was stunning. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Darwood Homes and Renos to our friends and family". Thanks Rob.

“We are very happy with the garage/warehouse that Rob and the Darwood Team built for us.  It was really nice to be able to give them the project because they took care of everything that was needed to complete it to our satisfaction.  Each detail was covered and completed and the best part is Rob listened to what we wanted and made sure that was what we got!  Thanks so much for a great job Rob.  We are really happy with the results.  We are looking forward to our next project.”

"We have used Darwood for 3 different renovation projects over the past 8 years and have always been pleased with the work Rob and his crews have done. We are about to do our main floor renovation and we will again be using Darwood for this one."



“I had the pleasure of working with Rob Peltenburg and his team from Darwood Homes two years ago when I renovated the kitchen and laundry room in our home.  I immediately felt comfortable with Rob when I met him, and knew I could trust his honest and respectful approach.  His professionalism came through in every interaction, as he guided me through the process from start to finish.  He was on target with his projected costs, and time frames.  There were no surprises in budget or delayed work as I had been warned by others who had worked with other contractors for similar projects.  I was so pleased with the work he did I recommended Darwood Homes to neighbours for their renovation.”  

Hope that is helpful to you and I would be happy to speak, via telephone or email, to anyone who wants to make contact with a previous client.

Looking forward to our next project."

I am not sure if I ever formally thanked you for the amazing job you did with our addition a few years ago and I would like to take this opportunity to do so now.  Obviously the reason we called you to discuss our current planned renovation was because of the amazing job you did with our full house renovation.  Guests in our house continue to comment on the quality of the workmanship.  Friends and family see the final product but, what they don't see is the amount of work that was needed by your team to make our house magazine ready.  You worked with us every step of the way, you understood all our concerns and you worked tirelessly to make sure things for us were as stress free as possible.   I also need to mention that your entire staff (Dawna in particular) did a great job at sourcing material for us (not always an easy task given our specific requirements for the unique).

If you ever need a reference please feel free to pass my name along and I will be happy to speak with anyone considering your company. I will definitely let them know that hiring you will be a very good decision.
