With over thirty years in the construction/renovation industry, and more than twenty years in business, owner Todd Crockford has the experience to see your project through. When possible, they use locally sourced, and responsibly made materials to reduce the overall environmental impact of building in Muskoka. In addition to their skilled staff of carpenters, tile setters and painters, they work with only local companies that are hired to take care of architectural drawings, site surveys, lot clearing, timber framing, ICF foundations, and more!
We have been doing only high end work in luxury homes and cottages for the 20+ years that we’ve been in business. We understand what is required to achieve the highest standards, lasting quality, and we only hire the best trades in the industry.
We work with local architects that specialize in luxury Muskoka cottage builds and renovations. We also provide any materials needed for the project. We deal with the best suppliers in the Muskoka area, but if need be materials can be sourced from our extensive list of high end suppliers from across the country.
So you want a timber framed cottage, but you love the heritage of the cottage that you have? We can integrate timber frame elements into the renovation or build a timber framed addition on your existing cottage. We can create a hybrid design specific to your cottage or home that will tie in all of these elements to bring your visions to life!
Complete exterior upgrades including outdoor kitchens, flagstone walkways, driveways, natural stone walls, decks, patios and waterfront development. Challenging projects and build sites are welcomed!
We build custom boathouses and docks that enhance your waterfront and compliment your cottage to bring the entire property together. From traditional Muskoka waterfront styles to modern touches and boat lift systems.
After interviewing several contractors about renovating our house, we settled on Phoenix Renovations. Todd's original quote was very reasonable. He didn't quote us an unusually low number only to add more costs throughout, and he was also always respectful of our budget. He is extremely fair-minded, and clearly cares about the quality of his work. We both noticed that he uses sub-trades that are all excellent and keep the site safe and clean.
Todd promised to finish the project on our wedding anniversary right before Christmas - and he kept to that promise.
I entered into a contract with Phoenix Renovations. Owner, Todd Crockford's workmanship was meticulous and was both a source of pride to him and subsequently to me and my wife.
I heartily recommend Todd as your contractor...you will be immensely thankful for this choice.
It has been nearly thirteen years since we moved in, and we are happy to report that there have been no issues whatsoever.
Todd is straight forward and a problem solver. He has excellent attention to detail. The results ore beautiful craftsmanship and always met our expectations. As a contractor, he does a great job coordinating the various parts of the project and always kept us informed about timelines and any decisions needing to be made.
I've used Todd for many things over the years. From full renos, to design, and emergencies. He is always punctual and returns calls promptly. The work he does is fantastic and extremely professional. I would use him again and again given the chance.
I wish to recommend Todd Crockford with the highest of praise.
Todd has great competence, integrity and reliability. He does not advocate for any costlier choices that do not provide any added benefit, instead he explains to you why the simpler choice is as good or better than the pricier option. (and you save thousands). He keeps his word, if he says it will be done in a week, he finishes it on time and on budget.
Todd was very easy to work with and very accessible during the renovation. He was there every step of the way from the beginning and he even cleaned up and manicured the beach area before we took possession at no extra cost.
All in all we would certainly refer Todd and his team as they were a pleasure to deal with, and the cottage was even completed a week early!
Site safety and property protection are paramount on all our projects. Everyone on your project site
will be WSIB compliant and up to date on all safety regulations and insurances.
Wether it’s a new kitchen or a whole cottage renovation, we take care to protect your property that is not undergoing construction. We use dust barriers, exhaust fans, hard board floor protection and laundered runners laid out daily to keep the rest of the interior as clean as it was when we arrived. Driveways, landscaping, trees and adjacent properties will be protected as well. We strive to have minimal impact on the environment and your neighbours. At the end of the project we bring in professional cleaning crews to leave everything spotless.
The job site will be maintained at the highest level of cleanliness possible throughout the entire duration of the project. Our sites are cleaned daily and all garbage is removed in a timely manner, leaving a presentable and safe work environment. In the off chance that any dangerous materials or mould are found during the renovation, they will be removed and cleaned by specialized professionals ensuring a healthy building envelope for years to come.
Our contracts are very comprehensive and detailed, ensuring that each and every aspect of the project is clearly outlined. The warranty provided is just as detailed and in our opinion is among the best in the industry. Our customer service doesn’t stop once the project is complete either! Touch ups, technical help and any needed assistance regarding your newly updated home are absolutely included in the contract price. We will always answer your call, even outside of business hours.
