Dave and Sarah did an excellent job at keeping our project on budget and on schedule even when unforeseen problems arose. Dave and all his crew were professional and patient with us and always took time out of their very busy schedules to explain the process and why certain things had to be done. This was our first build and Dave and all his crew made it a very enjoyable experience and I would not hesitate to recommend Carruthers Contracting to anyone.
We have used Carruthers Contracting on several significant ($50k & up ) projects over the past few years. Location of the work has been an island property in Muskoka which required the management of complex logistics. We have been delighted with the outcome of all of these projects in every respect..

We had a great experience with the Carruthers team . They were knowledgeable and well qualified to complete our project . Great Job!!!!
Thanks to Dave, Sarah and the team ! You turned the old house in to a beautiful dream kitchen and living space for us. Great Job.
Working with Carruthers was a great experience. Our project was built on budget and exceeded our expectations in terms of build quality and craftsmanship. When we have any project, we will most certainly work with Dave and Sarah and his team again.
Helping us with design decisions.Quality of workmanship.
We live a long distance from the cottage but had weekly picture updates on the internet.We would recommend the service to others.
follow up and meeting commitments
local reference , word of mouth
We will use them again for future projects, good people and they keep their word.
We have only high praise for Carruthers Contracting. Our home is everything we anticipated. David consistently fulfilled his commitments. He exceeded our expectations. The Draw payment schedule tied into inspections and completed tasks was a great way for us to track the build and be assured Carruthers was on target with budget and schedule. Each day we could log on to his website and view photos of the progress. We are still amazed at the speed and expertise of David's crew.With integrity we can highly recommend Carruthers Contracting.
David and Sarah spent more than a few hours listening and understanding our hopes and dreams and were able to offer creative solutions to creating plans that worked wonderfully.
The details including associated draws of payments was very much appreciated. This was our first build and we were in Mexico for the winter. It was critical for us to know the schedule was being fulfilled. This was accomplished with daily photos and copies of inspection reports. David promised we would not lose a summer due and he fulfilled his commitment by building during the winter so we would have our home upon our return.
David's original quote remained unchanged through to the end of construction. We've never heard of a builder sticking to his quote. David did just that. This speaks to his discipline and expertise in preparing all the details of the build.
We have recommended Carruthers to a friend already and David have completed that build too for another happy customer.
We did not encounter any area where David and his team fell short of our expectations.
We live in a community of contractors who take on too much work and so constantly fall short of the customer expectations - like taking 2+ years to build your home. We went outside this community to get a contractor who would stand by his word. We were not disappointed.
I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Carruthers Contracting for jobs both small and large. They have built us a ground up cottage that is stunning and after five years, there have been no issues at all with the workmanship or the materials.
The communication was excellent at all times. Any changes were handled without any drama and we were provided with a photographic log every few days to show progress.
They were recommended by the owner of our local marina.
Carruthers Contracting made the whole exercise a real pleasure. It was stress free and was actually great fun and that is reflected in the beautiful building that was the result.
This company is great. Dave and his entire staff are very professional. Their workmanship is excellent. I never had to wait for a response from Dave, he was always timely with responding to any questions that I had. After a bad storm Dave came by to check on the new Bunkie he built for me. Follow up was excellent.
I was very impressed with the workmanship and professionalism.
The company was recommended to me.
Once my neighbours saw the workmanship on my new Bunkie, they all wanted to get Carruthers Contracting for their renovations.
Great communication, reliable, professional, good ideas, just plain nice.
Carruthers Contracting has always addressed our needs quickly and efficiently. When given a quote and what work he is going to do, it is always done , no surprises. Pleasant to work with.
Addresses our requests promptly.
David was great to work with and exceeded expectations in all aspects of our project. A real pro!
Workmanship. The woodworking was artistic and thoughtfully done.
After an 80 foot pine tree fell on our cottage during the storm that hit Orillia and part of Six Mile Lake, we contacted Carruthers Contracting, They completed our repairs in a timely and very satisfactory manner!
Our neighbours recommended CC after they completed a building for them.
