Independent Customer Reviews

Testimonials we've received from our past clients independently.

Welwyn Wong, Landscape Architect

"Tim is great at following plans as well as solving problems that can arise with any build project. I would trust his wood and composite wood structures to stand the test of time."

Charlette Duguay B.I.D., M.B.A.

“As a Registered Interior Designer in 2 provinces I was looking for a competent, innovative person to help me create an unusual deck. Along with my Landscape Architect, Tim was the man. I have worked with many trades in my profession and Tim would be at the top of my go-to list. He was reliable, did excellent work and was creative when we ran into design snags. There always was a solution.  The project was completed on time, clean up was efficient, and any extras that came up were cost effective. We love our new deck. If you are looking for quality work, Tim’s Exterior Craft Company and his team are the only choice.”

Peter & Heather Stark – Stonebridge (Ottawa)

“Exterior Craft, under the leadership of Tim Beadle, was responsible for implementing a complex deck plan involving the use of Azek PVC over multiple levels at the back of our home. The result is a beautiful and functional deck that is built to last for decades with little maintenance. The work was completed by Tim and his team to a very high standard. We had the impression that Tim was taking the care to build a deck that he would want for his own home.  Client meetings prior to and at appropriate points during construction added to the value of the experience.We highly recommend Tim Beadle’s Exterior Craft for work requiring precision and quality.”

Ernest Graydon – Ex-President, O. C. S. C. C. #698

“Exterior Craft replaced 48 upper balconies and 4 lower porches with LockDry® aluminum decking at Ottawa Carleton Standard Condominium Corporation (OCSCC) #698 over six weeks in June and July of 2012.  The total cost of this major project was almost $200,000.00 (labour and material).

Tim Beadle (owner of Exterior Craft) was instrumental in carrying out this project to the complete satisfaction of the Board of Directors of OCSCC #698.  Before the project began Tim brought forward many suggestions with regard to the method of installation of the LockDry® which were innovative as this type of project had never been carried out before.
Tim’s employees always came to work early and any interaction with residents was handled in a professional manner.  The workers cleaned up the work site at the end of every day.

The project was completed on time and on budget.  The Board of Directors considered Exterior Craft as having completely met and exceeded all their expectations and beyond.
I would certainly recommend Tim and his crew to anyone considering hiring Exterior Craft.”

James Randall – Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery Dept. at Queensway Carleton Hospital

“I met Tim when I was searching for a Kamado BBQ table on line, he made me a great table and have also had the opportunity to see much of his other work. He is an outstanding craftsman and his creativity and workmanship is excellent.”

Bruce Nolan, P. Eng. – Expert Software Development Director / Service Delivery Manager

“Tim helped me finish my 12’x16′ pool cabana, doing a variety of the work:
– Intricate cuts building the roof trussing,
– Installing the custom windows and doors,
– Putting on the cedar siding,
– Shingling the roof.
The cabana is now the focal point of the backyard oasis. I’ve seen firsthand the creative talent Tim brings designing and building custom decks for any back yard, in the city or overlooking the lake. Tim can take a project from the idea phase to reality where you then get to enjoy the results. I highly recommend his work.”

Simon Jablonski – Solution Architect at Export Development Canada

“Timothy did an exceptional job building our two level deck with a fantastic pergola. He took care of all details, was on schedule, and covered any warranty work without any hassles. It was a real pleasure working with him. Highly recommended!”

Lia Rouleau – Owner at Heathers’s Designer Consignments

“I would highly recommend Timothy Beadle as he is an honest, reliable and does immaculate work with special attention to detail. He is very creative and is highly experienced and I would hire him again for future projects without hesitation.”

Sara Shaak – Arrowleaf Entertainment Properties – Founder and CEO

“I am happy to write a recommendation for Tim Beadle. Tim is a phenomenal builder of creative spaces. I hired Tim to build my multi-leveled large deck and he was able to come up with a unique design within a very fair budget. Tim works very hard, with exceptional attention to detail and a lot of pride in his work. At the end of the day, I absolutely loved my deck and wouldn’t hesitate to hire Tim again for any future design/construction jobs.”

Steve Davies  – Owner, Jancor Agencies – Proud Partner of PGA of Canada

“Tim custom built a table for the large Green Egg BBQ that I own. He was very professional to deal with, provided great value and completed the project ahead of the time he originally gave. I would highly recommend Tim for any project involving custom work of this nature.”

Antonio Trindade – Ottawa

“Tim Beadle completed a 2 story maintenance-free deck project for us in 2013 for our house in west end of Ottawa that has a walk-out basement. The new deck was built using aluminum railings and flooring, with elegant support columns and soffit (with integrated spotlights) for evening dining outside. We are extremely pleased with Tim’s work, the deck is magnificent and exactly what we were hoping for. The project was also completed on-time and on-budget. Tim’s attention to detail is to be commended, and is reflected in his choice of team members and attention to every phase of the project. We would highly recommend Tim and his team for any deck project, large or small.”

Danny Tenaschuk

We had a number of companies come in to quote for a new deck and tear down. Most did not have the answers to our concerns and made the process confusing. A friend recommended Exterior Craft and showed us their Azek deck and how pleased they were with Tim and his crew.What a breath of fresh air when he came by with his framer and both had suggestions and they worked with us to give us what we wanted along with discussing the pros and cons of cedar,composite and PVC decks. The crew was on time, kept the workplace clean and were very respectful. Couldn't have had a more positive experience and even the minor concerns along the way were addressed and taken care of to our satisfaction without questioning. 100% satisfied and would highly recommend Tim and his crew.

Laura McElwain

We hired Exterior Craft to build a new deck at our cottage. From day one they were extremely informative and responsive. Any time we had questions they happily answered them and offered as much detail as required for us to make decisions regarding the deck, whether related to the materials to use, the sizing, or styling. The work was done on time and on budget and to a very high quality. I would recommend Exterior Craft to friends and family.

Jane Clark

Tim and his crew built a beautiful 18’ x 20’ deck on my house built from Azek (low maintenance, durable material). Tim exhibited excellent project management skills from the planning to completion. I was always kept informed at every stage of the project; even where there was a slight delay in the schedule due to weather conditions. I was contacted immediately regarding any decisions and always given options. His team was professional and friendly. The work place was kept extremely clean and tidy. The cost of the project did not vary from the estimate. The work was high in quality. A wonderful contractor experience!


It was a pleasure to work with Tim on our privacy screens for our newly landscaped backyard. Tim helped us create beautiful and well crafted structures which we will enjoy for many years to come. The Exterior Craft team that came to build these structures were professional and made the experience a very positive one. Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail were what we wanted and expected and that is exactly what we got.

Lindsay Graham

`A friend of mine recommended Exterior Craft after getting a PVC deck built. I needed front steps so I gave them a call. The owner came around and we talked ideas and he later sent me a quote for the project. My plan was to use a high end PVC decking so I knew that I wanted someone with the experience to do it right. I am very happy with the result. I've had many compliments from friends and neighbors about my "beautiful" new front porch.

Andrew Morris

Bottom line is that Tim at Exterior Craft is a pro. He is kind, honest and a great listener. His team is fantastic and they are all very professional. Hire Exterior Craft. Your Exterior Craft project will most definitely add value to your home, giving you years of enjoyment. Plus, knowing Tim and Exterior Craft will come back and address anything that comes up, you don’t have a thing to worry about. Give Tim a call, you won’t regret it!

Sharon Ellis-Gill

I am delighted to provide a review for Exterior Craft. The workmanship is excellent, the team came when they said they would, worked in an orderly and organized manner, and finished within the time frame which had been provided. I would not hesitate to use them again.

Barbara Brown

It was very easy to communicate with Mr. Beadle - he was always available to answer my questions and did so promptly. The work was done when he said it would be and in the time estimated. this despite very bad weather for outside work this year. He got the back deck done quicky so that I would have it for use during the summer such as the weather permitted. He waited until there were enough clear days to tear down and rebuild the front porch so that I was not left with a gaping hole while it rained. The final result was a very satisfactory job at the cost budgetted. I highly recommend him to do similar outdoor work - professional and personable.

Janet & Arthur Carkner

We are very pleased with the deck Tim did for us -- not only did he take the extra time to create a design that met our wishlist (no railing, low maintenance, fit with existing landscaping), he provided prompt and thorough answers to numerous emails we had about materials and process, and came to our home a number of times before starting the project to discuss the design. In addition, he arranged for us to view a previous client's deck to see how the Azek looked in place. 

The work was done on a timely basis, and the area was cleaned up on completion. We are extremely happy with the design and quality of the finished deck and definitely recommend Exterior Craft.

J.F. Bergeron

I got a reply from Tim in less than 2 days (1st one to reply). Even after sending pictures of the posts to be replaced, Tim took the time to come over before submitting his estimate.

His estimate was significantly lower than the only other company that provided an estimate.

The project was done in a timely matter with great quality.

Tom Wright

The work site was kept clean and we were kept well informed on progress. The finished product met our expectations and has enhanced the value of our property.

Sarah S

I had the pleasure of working with Tim and his team members, Richard, John, and Craig, in 2016. Their work is very high quality - excellent attention to detail, very dependable (in terms of budget and deadlines), friendly, thoughtful, and proactive. They maintained a clean site, were attentive to my walking disability, and went well beyond my expectations. I intend to hire them for more work in the future and will be grateful to have them. I wish all contractors were as professional and great to work with!
