Read what our customers have to say about our work.

Three Oaks Construction has done four projects for us, including the most recent and biggest which was a complete kitchen renovation in our older home. Cliff and his crew are meticulous craftsmen who pay close attention to detail and who are extremely responsive to our requirements. Every aspect of the job was thorough, from the very specific price quotation, with each task itemized, to the complete daily job-site cleanup. Additionally, Three Oaks has creative solutions to difficulties that older houses present. The crew is prompt, polite, extremely hard-working, respectful and quite frankly, a pleasure to have around. Cliff has excellent working relationships with his subcontractors, so that the subcontractors were ready to do their work at exactly the correct time, so that nothing was delayed. In fact, Cliff had estimated that the job would take five to six weeks, and his crew was able to finish their work in less time than that due to their work ethic and flexibility. In terms of price competitiveness, Three Oaks prices are very fair and competitive. Because Cliff prepares a detailed quotation, there are no cost surprises, cost add-ons, or "upselling". If there is any aspect of the job that might have price uncertainty (because of aging infrastructure in the house, for example), Cliff makes sure that the homeowner knows that in advance. Three Oaks is reliable, honest, hard-working and exacting--I can give them my absolute highest recommendation. - Katherine via Houzz

Three Oaks did a wonderful job of re-building a basement rec-room, and a half bath on the main floor of the house. The basement required removal of all old ceiling tiles and all Masonite paneling from the internal framing, then insulating along the poured cement wall, then sheet rocking the walls and ceiling, and installing horizontal wainscoting (pine) with a chair rail in the basement and sheet rocking up the stairwell to the main floor. Built in bookcases on either side of the fireplace, and a railing and newel post were added at the base of the stairs. All wallboard was painted, and all the horizontal paneling was urethane coated. All electrical service to the area was updated, and recessed lighting in the ceiling and sconces on 2 walls were added with individual switches. The complete rework of the half bath on the main floor was added after the rec-room was started. We were given an approx. 3 wk. time frame, and the time schedule was met even with the addition of the half bath rework. The attention to detail was top notch, and the coordinating with the electrician was flawless, so that there were no delays. The work continued without any delays until the job was completed. There was a crew "on the job" from day one till the project was completed. Cliff was available for consultation throughout, which we found extremely helpful. Three Oaks detailed out everything when it came to "billing", and we were pleased with the final accounting for the project. We expect, in the Fall to have some windows and exterior work done, and have no concerns about them doing a 1st rate job. Cliff's crew was extremely pleasant, and helpful as well, which made a major project, very reasonable do deal with. We were VERY well pleased. - John and Mary via Houzz

Creative, honest, meticulous! Could not have had a better more collaborative relationship with a contractor and sub-contractor. Hoping for a another project to be able to work with Cliff and his team. - Faith via Houzz

With a growing family, we decided to start the process of finishing our unfinished basement in our home to provide additional living space and another bathroom. We contacted several local contractors in the area and met with each of them to discuss our project. Cliff from Three Oaks demonstrated a caring and understanding that none of the other contractors had, so we made the easy choice of hiring Cliff and his crew for our job. Right from the beginning we knew we were in good hands. Cliff made several trips to our home to discuss our project and budget and we came up with a game plan for a phased approach that would allow us to complete the project over time. Cliff, Nick and others from Three Oaks arrived promptly each morning and worked hard all day. The subcontractors that Cliff uses are also great, and I'm glad to have relationships with local electricians and plumbers now too. The workmanship seems excellent and we are very happy with how our project is coming along. Cliff will take the time to understand your project, he will answer your questions, and he and his staff take pride in their work, which is important. We will gladly hire Three Oaks to finish our basement project, and will keep them in mind for any other home improvement projects that may arise in the future. Thank you Three Oaks. - Jesse and Erin via Houzz

Most recently, Three Oaks did a two-fold project on our 19th century tool-shed-turned cottage-home: 1. repaired one of the roof sections that had failed and opened up the bedroom ceiling to the elements (not only has the roof been repaired, but the ceiling was also completely replaced, painted, and beautifully finished with perfect, simple molding; 2. recreated the basement bulkhead entrance, which had been slowly deteriorating over recent years; cement was breaking down, and metal bulkhead structure was pulling away from the house; job required excavation of old concrete steps, frost line consideration, pouring of new steps, installation of new bulkhead structure -- and it matches the color of paint on the house! I do not live there permanently (yet), so I did not see the progress, but I can see from the outcome that exquisite care was taken to insure return of the lawn around the project to its former condition. If it would be helpful, I will submit some photos (taking of the "after" photos will need to wait until my next trip to Brandon, 2nd weekend in October...) - Mary via Houzz

I would highly recommend Three Oaks to anyone who is looking for a professional team of carpenters who worked diligently to produce a well designed professional product at the specified budget on time to meet my stringent schedule. Excellent team work! - Clifford via Houzz

The Three Oaks team did a great job on our roof! They arrived right on time each day and worked steadily - took care of all the details, did an excellent quality job as far as we can tell, and cleaned everything up nice! - Ben and Dorcas via Houzz

Major renovations at our second home in Brandon, VT. Required complete redesign and reconstruction of the space on the first floor with partial redesign of the second floor with new bathroom added. It was a pleasure to work with Cliff and his crew of Three Oaks Construction and the several sub-contractors that he brought in for various specialized tasks that were part of this major renovation project. Every individual, whether directly on Cliff’s team or part of a sub-contractor’s team, was someone who took pride in their workmanship in every detail that was part of this project and it was obvious to us as we progressed. Even though the renovation was designed with blue-prints supplied by the designer, we got numerous suggestions for alternate approaches from Cliff and his team as the project progressed. Several of these ideas made the alteration have better utility or looks or both. Being in a situation where we had time since we did not have a hard deadline when we were planning on moving into the space, we were able to consider and assess several of the alternatives and act upon the ones we saw most suitable for us. Overall, it was a great experience working with a crew of people who were always pleasant to work with and ready to listen to suggestions and/or questions that arose as the renovations progressed. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Cliff and his entire crew for any construction or carpentry work. - Shiraz and Faith via Houzz

We have had the good fortune to work with Cliff several times on projects around our house: replacement of windows, repair/rebuild of a foundation wall and the installation of a drainage solution in our basement. As our house was built in the mid 1860s, we've needed to balance the priorities of maintaining as much of the building's character and historic aesthetic as we can all while keeping budget in mind -- in working with Cliff, we've found that he understands these concerns, knows his craft and therefore the options available and is able to contribute not only with professional execution, but with plan formation. We are extremely pleased with the quality of his work, the good-natured attitude he brings to the work site and the competitive pricing he offers on projects large and small. His family-centric approach to his business also makes us comfortable with our young kids being around while Three Oaks Construction is on the job - we have no concerns about what our kids are exposed to and we know that Cliff is an excellent role model. We will definitely be calling Three Oaks Construction for future projects. - Chris and Jamie via Houzz

Three Oaks Construction provided a complete renovation of the first floor of our townhouse to our specifications and taste. It was a difficult task as the townhouse is our vacation home and therefore we were not present for much of the renovation. On our visits, we were always pleased with the quality of the materials used as well as the with the superior workmanship. Using conversations and sketches, the company did an excellent job of completing the job to meet our expectations. Three Oaks Construction provided continuous feedback via phone and/or email to keep us apprised of the renovation progress as well as associated costs. Detailed bills showing purchases, credits and labor hours and costs were sent in a timely manner. The communication between us and the company was reliable and we were impressed with their knowledge, skill and professionalism. The company set realistic deadlines which satisfied our needs. We would highly recommend Three Oaks Construction company. - Tom and Barb via Houzz
