It was a pleasure working with Tom, Laurie, and the Campbells crew every step of the way on our island house and boathouse projects. Initially, we were concerned about the logistics of building on an island but, early on, it became clear that Campbells was completely comfortable and competent with projects on the lakes. Ours was a family endeavor: my brother and I and our two families. The two couples had very different backgrounds in design and building, and Campbells was both patient and accommodating to the different perspectives. We would look no further than Ed Campbell Construction for any future building needs.
Our family has dealt with the Campbells ever since we came to Muskoka in 1970. We have trusted Ed and his son Tom with all of our building and maintenance needs for over 40 years and have never been disappointed. The Campbells and their team have always been reliable and dependable. The quality of their workmanship has been outstanding and has stood the test of time.
Over several years, we have contracted Ed Campbell Construction for various renovations and or repairs. In each case we were more than satisfied because:
The quality of workmanship was always “A +”
Work was started and completed in a timely manner
Workmen were always polite and courteous
Job site clean-up was excellent
The Contractor keeps himself updated on new products and techniques
We certainly find the pricing fair considering the quality of products and labour that is provided
We bought our cottage on Lake Joe in 1983 and started a relationship with Tom’s father Ed Campbell who looked after our needs extremely well until his retirement. When Ed’s son Tom took over from Ed, we continued the relationship which has been excellent and continues today. In 2006, we took down our small cottage and Tom and his crew built our new cottage, a 4,000 square foot, six bedroom structure. The workmanship and quality are second to none! Tom has always responded to our requests promptly and efficiently. We have the highest regard for Tom and Laurie and have no hesitation in strongly recommending them for any cottage or construction requirements.
In 2003 my husband and I employed Campbell Construction and a Toronto architect Bill Dewson to reconstruct our cottage in Muskoka. It was a positive experience right from the start and the end result is one we and they are extremely pleased with. Bill’s ideas paired with Tom and Laurie Campbell’s knowledge of the area and their superb attention to detail made for a winning team. Working with Tom, Laurie and their crew is like working with family – they are always there for you.
We want to express our appreciation to Tom Campbell and Ed Campbell Construction for making our cottage dream a reality and for making the design and construction process such a positive and memorable experience. We cannot say enough about the quality of materials and workmanship in our cottage, boathouse and bunkie. They are an excellent contractor who stays on schedule, within budget and delivers a quality product.
