There's something to say about superior quality

We first met John Odam, the owner of Level Construction, at the Ottawa Home Show in the fall of 2001. We were looking for a builder as we wanted to put an addition on our 1950's bungalow (master bedroom, family room and full basement) and renovate our main bathroom. We had an instant rapport with John and asked him to provide us with an estimate for the work to be done. Of the three bids we received, John's was right in the middle and after speaking with the references provided and seeing a couple of his finished projects, we decided to go with Level Construction.

Construction started in the early spring of 2002 and was completed in later summer, on time and on budget. All of the staff at Level and the various trades hired, were very professional and very easy to deal with. We were and still are, very pleased with the addition and have not had any problems with the work done in the intervening years.

We had been talking about renovating our kitchen for many years and finally decided to proceed with it in 2012. In addition to the kitchen/living room/dining room reno we also wanted to add a sun porch on the front of our house and refinish the original portion of the basement. We called John and asked him to provide us with an estimate for the job. Although his bid was higher than the others we received, we decided to go once again with Level Construction because we felt most confident in John and his work.

We are now two-thirds through this renovation (just the basement remains to be done) and we are extremely happy with the work that's been done. The kitchen/living/dining room looks absolutely gorgeous and the sun room is even better than I had imagined it would look. John made some excellent suggestions about the kitchen and the porch and I am very glad we decided to go with his suggestions. All of his crew was fantastic and although a kitchen reno is never easy, they did their utmost to make it as painless as possible. In particular, one of his foremen, Ryan, did most of the finishing carpentty work on our reno and we were very impressed with his work.

Once again, John was able to complete these two portions of the reno on time. We have found John to be very honest and trustworthy, true to his word, easy to deal with and he really does strive to please. We would highly recommend John Odam and Level Construction.

We have used Level Construction for three house renovation projects: 1) complete kitchen renovation plus some dining room and ensuite modifications (2005), 2) master bedroom renovation along with third bedroom up-grading (2008) and 3) the addition of an attached covered porch at the back of the house (2012). All three of these projects were completed on time and on budget and this included modifications made during the construction period.

The tradesmen were competent, polite and courteous and cleaned/tidied up at the end of each day and were a pleasure to have in and around our house. We were very well informed as to when they would/would not be working on our project however, once the project started the tradesmen were at our house pretty well every day until the project was completed. We were in contact with the main contractor (Mr. Odam) several times each week and he was on site several times each week.

The main contractor obtained all necessary building permits in a timely manner and offered many helpful suggestions before and during the construction phase.

If we have any further house renovations Level Construction would be the first contractor we would consider.

We chose Level Construction for a home renovation and we could not have been happier with that decision.

From the first consultation with Level Construction, their professionalism, attention to detail, and understanding of our requirements was apparent. Throughout all aspects of the project, they kept us informed and were never too busy to explain or review upcoming milestones. John and his crew remained flexible throughout this project and were always willing to make modifications or alterations as they came along. We were also impressed with the way they kept the work site clean and orderly throughout the project (since we continued to live in the house during the renovation this was very important to us).

We undertook this renovation 5 years ago now and it still looks great – a testament to quality of Level's workmanship. In the years since the renovation, they even helped us with a plumbing emergency that was completely unrelated to their work.

All aspects of our involvement with Level Construction was positive. Everything from adhering to their quotes, right through until project closeout was professional and we have no hesitation or reservation about recommending Level Construction for any renovation project.

As mentioned at the top, we love the way this renovation turned out. If others would like to view this renovation then we are happy to have them do so.

When I think of John Odam and Level Construction trust is the word that comes to my mind. I first hired John and his team back in 1991 when I purchased a lovely home in McKellar Park that needed the basement to be upgraded and finished. He delivered in spades. Based on these results I hired him again in 1993 when I took on a larger project – adding a garage and creating a mud room. In 2006 I turned to John to do some bathroom renovations. I was satisfied with all that he had done for me so it was easy for me to turn to John in 2009 when I moved to a bungalow that needed a fair number of upgrades. The bottom line - he listens; he says that I’m the one that has to be happy because I’m the one that is going to live with it; he serves me; he delivers. So, I trust him with my homes, which is invaluable to me.
