Commercial bathroom and multipurpose/ skate change room renovation.

Wood Buffalo (Fred) was a pleasure to work with. What made the experience so great was his high levels of communication regarding everything from timelines, to design decisions etc. He made the experience as smooth as it could possibly be. He was on budget, and on time.

Highly recommended.

Basement finishing/remodel, Hardwood flooring, Door installation, Various home improvement projects

I truly have only positive words to say about Fred and his team. Our home was bought brand new with an unfinished basement. We met with several general contractors to finish the basement, and to replace the existing carpeting on the top floor with hardwood. Fred was the only one who provided a detailed cost analysis with absolutely nothing hidden and came well within budget. And he kept to it throughout the entire project. If I were about to make a decision that would cost me more he would make it very clear prior to following through about the cost. There were zero surprises.

Timing wise Fred always came out of time. It is rare to find a contractor who had subcontractors available who could immediately start work and to complete work in a timely fashion. There was never a point where I felt that our house/projects were abandoned. There was always work being done and Fred was always accessible and available if I had any questions.

We had hardwood flooring installed in our top floor. This involved removing the baseboards, removing the carpet, installing the hardwood, and reattaching the baseboards and repainting them and refinishing any damage which was minimal. They also completed hardwood flooring of the stairs which is a challenge on its own. This was truly an impressive feat as I was told by others that the baseboards would have to be completely renewed and was discouraged from installing the hardwood. They did this in the middle of us moving in with two young children. Our floors look fantastic and appears as though the house was bought with those floors.

The basement remodel was delayed only by the city of Edmonton providing a permit. Fred knew exactly what I wanted in the basement when I described it and helped tremendously with the design and the function. Our basement was made to be an 'in-law' suite with a small kitchenette, tv entertainment center with cabinets, and two bedrooms. The finishings were similar to the rest of the house. All other decisions about flooring, cabinetry etc Fred had various suppliers he was connected to and were extremely easy to work with. He made the decision process quite easy and painless. His subcontractors were fantastic. All of them were helpful, professional, timely, and knowledgeable.

Fred also installed these fantastic barn-doors for our mudroom that he helped me design and installed cabinets and a hanging rod for our laundry room to make it a more functional space.

The home was bought brand-new but there were various problems that appeared upon our move-in and Fred was extremely helpful and though not required to do so would point out various real deficiencies that we would have otherwise no known were subsequently dealt with.

Following the finished work in our house Fred has still been very valuable and helpful in providing his contacts for other trades needed for our house (AC, fencing etc).

I had the best experience with wood buffalo construction and I feel very fortunate to have had such a positive experience. I would highly recommend them for any renovation small or large.

Ensuite and main bathroom renovations

Fred and his crew were able to provide us with an impressive renovation, of our two outdated bathrooms, from start to finish. I appreciated Fred's honesty and professionalism. Pastor, his main man was also fantastic, so attentive and meticulous. They were both knowledgeable, and able to guide us through the process seamlessly. Fred's initial quote was reasonable and he stuck to the estimated cost for this job. We also appreciated being able to make small changes as they proceeded with the work. Having dealt with several contractors in the past, I felt that this renovation was easier and quicker thanks to Fred's expertise and him being so easy to work with. We were also happy with his team of professional trades: plumbing, tile, drywall and electrician. We are so happy with the our new bathrooms, just what we had envisioned. Thanks again Fred!

Condo Renovation

We had Wood Buffalo completely renovate a Old Strathcona condo that we rent out to our son. The condo was stripped to the bare floor and drywall. The kitchen was completely done as were two bathrooms. The drywall was repaired and painted and new flooring and lighting installed throughout. We also had a ductless A/C unit installed in the living room since the condo is on the top floor and would get very hot in the summer.

Renovations are always challenging and as many people know can sometimes be a complete nightmare. This one was challenging for Fred's team since the condo is on the third floor of a walkup. All the waste including flooring, cabinets, toilets etc needed to be trucked down the stairs and the new fixtures, flooring and cabinets were hauled up. You can imagine that it was difficult to do this without disturbing the neighbours.

We are very satisfied with the quality of the work. Obviously we had concerns along the way and Fred was very quick to address them even late at night. This is what made the biggest difference for us - his attentiveness to his work.

Also not to be forgotten. We found the price to be very reasonable given the scope of the task.

Kitchen renos, bathroom renos, replacing the poly B waterpipes from the 90's, replace mouldings, painted all the trim and doors. Painted inside of garage. Replace railing.

Farid was very helpful, always trying to get us a good price from the places that he deals with most of the time. He is easy to work with as he would try to give recommendations when it was time to purchase or order a product. If there were issues, he would try to fix them the best he could.
There are still a few things that needs to be touched up, I will contact Farid.
I would definitely recommend Farid for projects for home renos. Farid gave us names of places to visit to choose our materials our home renos. He gave us a detailed list of the work that had to be done and the price was always on the invoice. Very professional and easy to work with.
The moulding replacement was excellent, cannot remember his name.
We had kitchen tiles replaced, not impressed with the tiles guys (Julian) as they had to redo some of the tiles (chipped, uneven tiles) will not recommend him.
Romel the painter did an excellent job of painting and touchups. Definitely would reccomend him for painting jobs.
Sunny the plumber worked very hard to get our pipes and bathroom fixtures installed.
Some of the trades who installed the bathroom flooring needed to be redone by Farid.
Jochen S. did our kitchen cabinets, very meticulous person, replaced the upper cabinets and refaced the bottom ones. There was a delays with the cabinet install.

Overall, the house looks much better, all the honey oak has been painted or replaced. Thank you Wood Buffalo, we are happy with the renovations.

Kitchen and some extra electrical and laundry sink

We had a wall removed to open up our kitchen, electrical upgraded, new cabinets put in, undercabinet lighting installed and new backsplash put in. Our concern with removing the wall was that the portion remaining would not be stable, we had spoken with another contractor about how it could be done and he presented​ us with an answer. When we had Fred come in and we asked him the same question he quickly gave us a better and much more aesthetic solution. It turns out that Fred has his civil engineering degree so it gave me confidence in him and I was not disappointed. Fred hired only good trades who did quality work. His price was reasonable and he was very approachable when we had questions (we did some work ourselves).
The cabinet maker Jochen made the most amazing cabinets, top quality and completely Alberta made. I have already recommended these services to others.

House Renovations

Wood Buffalo construction was amazing. A complete home renovation was done under the management of Fred Baghee. The crew was so reliable and work undertaken was of high quality. I would recommend Wood Buffalo Construction Group to any of my family and friends given the workmanship and timely manner in which the project was completed. The honesty and integrity that Fred believes in is to held with utmost esteem.
