We love what Rod has built for us!
And so began perhaps the most pleasurable business arrangement in which I have ever been engaged. We love what Rod has built for us. He took dreams we could barely articulate and turned them into reality. Rod was always accurate with his cost estimates. He always provided material options at different prices. He worked within our cash flow issues. He regularly updated us with the progress of the build and let us come and see it whenever we wished.
I always believed Rod was creating something he cared about as much as we did. He wanted it to be unique and beautiful. He asked to experiment with things at his own potential cost because he thought it would make our cottage special. We always slept easy knowing the build was in Rod’s hands, even when we couldn’t come-up to see what was happening for weeks at a time.
In the end, of course, I could not recommend Rod and Rodco more strongly. Perhaps this might be the best way to put it: if I had the money, I’d build cottages all over Haliburton wth Rod and then give them away simply to have the pleasure of the building process and to know I’d help create things of great and lasting beauty.
A true pleasure!
``We worked closely with the entire Rodco Enterprise Team to build our dream cottage, which has exceeded our family’s expectations. The relationship between everyone on the Rodco Team, ourselves, and our architect was strong, which made sure we built upon the best ideas of everyone involved. They understood we were looking for a modern design that still maintained the comfort and “cottage feel” that mattered to our family. The quality of work and professionalism of everyone working on our cottage was exceptional and we felt they truly cared about building our dream cottage as much as we did. Rod Thurston pays attention to the details and he always kept us apprised as to timing along with budget updates to ensure there were no surprises along the way. We are thrilled with the outcome, were thrilled with the process and the terrific people we were able to work with along the way. A true pleasure.``
From foundation to finishing Rodco's work is excellent.
``After a few years of looking for a contractor I hired Rodco to build my dream cottage. The process went smoothly and the result is beautiful, I would do it again in heartbeat. I am a 3 1/2 hour drive from the build and it was very important to me to secure a builder who understands detail and can work within budget. From foundation to finishing Rodco's work is excellent. The trades showed up when they were scheduled and completed their work in a timely manner. Through out the process they were very reachable and responsive. The invoicing was organized and transparent. As an added value Rodco provides service and support with general maintenance after completion. Two thumbs up!``
We could not be more happy with the end result.
``Rodco came recommended by a very close friend and business colleague. The project was a very large/long and complicated build. We could not be more happy with the end result. Project came in very close to budget/estimate, a large portion was a fixed price, the overages our doing as the project evolved.Completion time was line was at the longer end of estimate & worth the extra wait. Rod & Irene are the brother/sister duo behind the build. We have owned the cottage now six years after completion and have seen a few usual issues and one unusual, all were addressed in exceptional fashion. They provide aftercare & maintenance which we would highly recommend.``
Rod's team were wonderful and their workmanship was the highest quality.
``Our experience with Rodco was excellent from the start. We initially asked that they evaluate renovating an existing cottage. Rod Thurston gave a detailed estimate of the project which confirmed our own feeling that renovation was not practical. We decided to contract Rodco to demolish the old building and construct a new one on the site. Although our building was a lot smaller than Rodco's normal projects, Rod spent several months with us developing a plan for the cottage. He understood our concepts and made valuable suggestions to achieve exactly what we wanted, while remaining within our budget. Rod's team were wonderful and their workmanship was the highest quality. The project was completed on schedule and within budget, in fact on several occasions Rod found ways to provide higher quality materials than originally specified. The completed building is a joy to see and wonderful to live in. We hope that Rod is as proud of it as we are and we are happy for him to show it to anyone who is considering using Rodco's services.``
(Rodco) had a keen understanding and enthusiasm for the modern design intent of our project
``Rodco Enterprise were responsible for the project management and construction, including building permit drawings and application, for the construction of our cottage property on a lake in the Haliburton Highlands region. Rodco was involved in the entire process, from land preparation through to finished trim carpentry. With an already proven legacy of high quality traditional architectural homes, they had a keen understanding and enthusiasm for the modern design intent of our project. There was constant communication throughout all phases of construction and their dedicated staff are quite excellent at promptly responding to any questions or issues that came up during the process.
Given the remoteness of the cottage from our home, it was critical to hire a responsible, talented team to construct our home, monitor the entire process and, essentially, serve as our agent to deliver the results we envisioned. Rodco Enterprise fulfilled that role and the results have been excellent.``
The level of quality in workmanship and materials was outstanding!!
``Rodco built a summer home for us in Haliburton. From start to finish the experience was totally professional and friendly. They did exactly as they said they would in all respects. The level of quality in workmanship and materials was outstanding!! If I were to build another home or cottage (or even a renovation) I would most definitely use Rodco. Finally, the level of aftercare and maintenance has also been outstanding.``
