Complete home renovation/Addition

We were introduced to Shane/Adcor from neighbours who had work done and highly recommended them. When we first met Shane we were impressed by his professionalism and general comfort level he had with all projects. The scope of our project was quite large, initially we were going to add on an addition to accommodate our 3 children. Once we realized we would have to leave our home for 6 months as the scope of the project developed, we also decided to renovate the other half of our home. There was literally nothing in our home that hasn't been redone. So Adcor literally guided us thru the design stage, permits, general construction and finishing. We thoroughly enjoyed having Shane/Rowan and the Adcor team work on our home for as long as they did. They always consulted us on the details, to make informed choices, they always gave us accurate estimates of the work, they always cleaned up after each day, and they finished the work in the scheduled time frame as they said they would. There were a couple of small hiccups along the way, which is always expected, but these were handled very professionally and honestly. We were so happy with the work that was done, we had them come back and refinish/convert our garage into our home gym a few months later! We are fully satisfied and impressed with the work of Adcor. We think of them as family and would recommend them to anyone. I've attached a couple photos.....don't mind the mess, this is an active home with 3 young kids!.

New Partitions

We had the team at Adcor out to install some interior partition walls, doors, and a new closet. From the first meeting with Shane to walk the project and provide an estimate I knew we were in good hands. Adcor had come highly recommended to us and I could see why. Shane walked through everything we were looking to do and provided valuable suggestions on how best to make it all work within the existing house. When the crew was on site, they were knowledgeable, punctual, and clean. Each day ended with a thorough vacuum and tidy up, which was especially important as we had a toddler. Colton, Rowan, Duncan and the other crew on site kept us up to speed on how the project was progressing, and consulted on any changes needed due to material availability. It was clear that they were most focused on making sure we were happy with the outcome. We would wholeheartedly recommend Adcor and Sons, and will have them back should we need any more work done.

Superb job

We needed some electrical updating, which required, as well as the rewiring itself, the filling of holes that had to be punched into the plasterwork, and repainting. Our front porch & kitchen were also repainted. Everyone involved in the project was outstanding. The inevitable disruption was kept to a minimum, furniture, curtains etc. protected by heavy plastic drop sheets, & the site cleaned up at the end of each working day). We were kept well informed about what was happening at every stage of the process. The project was completed on time and to the highest standard. We would unequivocally recommend Adcor.

Fence and Porch Project

We saw a lot of projects in our neighbourhood by Adcor and they always seemed really nice, so when we had to replace a rotting porch and rickety fence we sought them out first. Shane and Rowan were very responsive, managed to start and finish our project earlier than was anticipated, and the crew were effective, left our property tidy, and did a great job. The fence is solid and lovely and has transformed our yard. They respected the garden and nothing was damaged while working in a tight space. The porch looks great, and exactly as we expected. It was a good experience overall and I would recommend them to anyone.

Balcony rebuild

Adcor did a wonderful job rebuilding the crumbling balcony on our old home. Shane was knowledgeable and responsive. He took the time to assess the structure and worked closely with us to design a three-season covered space that enhances the character of our old home. Rowan and the crew on site were very professional, friendly and helpful. They were also very safety conscious including COVID precautions that were important for us. The whole team takes great pride in their work - the carpentry and finishing touches are really beautiful and we are so happy with the end product.

Adcor does it right the first time!

We hired Adcor Construction to fix some critical problems with our house in Old Ottawa South following a botched renovation by the previous owner of our house. Our issues ran the gamut from a leaky roof to structural defects to interior water damage. Not only did Shane Adsett and the Adcor crew do an incredible job of addressing all of our problems, they showed great care and empathy for our family throughout our ordeal—including respecting all appropriate COVID-19 precautions in this year of the pandemic. Everyone on the Adcor team is a consummate professional who takes pride in their work and treats their customers with kindness and respect. This shows in the quality of their work and their attention to detail. Shane and his team are a pleasure to work with. They are responsive to phone calls and emails and generous with their time in explaining their work and approach to the customer. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Porch Project

We just had Adcor repair and update our front porch, the work was excellent and Shane, Jeff and the crew were great to work with. The work was done on time and on budget even with some minor changes. The porch looks great, but just as importantly, the company and the crew were friendly, flexible and professional. We'll definitely be having them back for more work and I would highly recommend Adcor.

Highly recommended - exceptional workmanship

I've used Adcor for 3 large projects and a handful of smaller projects. I always found them to be professional and their workmanship (especially carpentry) is second to none.

Summary of the projects: The first project was a two story addition on the back of our house. The first was an extension of our kitchen and the second story was an incredible bathroom that was featured in a magazine. The second project was a custom garage to replace a 100 year old garage. The third project was a 2 story addition on the front of our house where the first story is a porch and the second story is study room.

We've hired a handful of different contractors over the years but Adcor is by far the best for 4 main reasons. First, if you've ever needed building permits in an older neighbourhood (we are in the Glebe), it is a pain... Adcor took care of it easily. Second, they are SUPER clean. This is especially important if you are living in the house during a big renovation. The job site was always clean - no other contractor we've worked with was as clean. Third, they have extensive experience with older homes which is invaluable. They told exactly what to expect before they opened up the walls so we had no surprises. Lastly, their finishing workmanship, especially their carpentry is exceptional. All of our projects match the original architecture of our house.

They are not the least expensive contractor but they are also not the most expensive. We've found their pricing to be fair and great value for the quality of work. I would not hesitate to refer Adcor or to hire them for my next project.

Entire House rebuild

We had ADCOR Constructions and Sons do a complete house rebuild and add a third story to our old home.
The work was professional, and of high quality.
Shane was always available, and acting on our requests professionally and quickly.
At the end of the project ADCOR was efficient and effective at addressing any deficiency we believe existed.
ADCOR stands by their work 100%.

Failure to complete warranty work

Have been pursuing company to complete warranty work for 4 months. It is a 5 year warranty and this is only year 1, so that isn't encouraging. They (primarily the proprietor) fail to return calls, they email saying that they we'll be contacted and they miss booked appointments.

Review will be revised pending resolution.

Company Response

Our staff were sent to undertake minor deficiencies the major one being the repainting of a hallway that had been painted free of charge in the 1st place. Our staff arrived at 9:35am to find that the client had left the house without notifying the office that they were leaving therefore wasting some 8 man hours as the project is some 45 mins out of town. An invoice was sent for the wasted time.
Upon receipt of payment we will as we always have honor our warranty. We have a lady in the office and a project manager that deals with these issues to say that we fail to return calls is incorrect.
In closing this company has never in some 20 years failed to uphold its obligations
