Okanagan Custom Homes Testimonials

Dear Joe,

Jim and I would like to thank you for the role you and your crew have played in making our home a beautiful space for us to enjoy and share with friends.

The entire experience was excellent…from the initial planning, to the ongoing friendly and professional working relationships throughout the project, to the high quality of workmanship which is evident to all who see the changes to our home.

No one should be surprised when problems arise…they are an inevitable part of projects with scope. What makes the difference is how problems are approached. With patience, understanding and creativity you worked with us to come up with solutions that were sometimes even better than the original vision.

Renovating is a big investment and involves a measure of trust. The results in our home show our trust was well-placed. We would be pleased to recommend your work and talk personally with prospective clients.

Warm regards,
Sherry and Jim

“I am happy to recommend Joe Wackerbauer for his skills and his professional manner. He’s an excellent team player and we have enjoyed having him work on our home”

Carolyn Cross, West Vancouver.

“I have been more than pleased with his work and find him to be polite, knowledgeable, competent and helpful with suggestions and ideas as a finishing carpenter”

Diane McCausland, Summerland, B.C

“Joe was consistently cooperative, responsible, polite and highly dependable. He often made creative suggestions to resolve problems that we discussed during my site visits. I was not the least concerned about the infrequency of my visits because I knew the construction was in good hands.”

“Joe recorded on camera many phases of the construction that I was not there to see. The photos have proved invaluable in many of my post-construction projects.”

“When another carpenter was working on one of those projects, he commented that Joe is famous in the Valley for his perfect right angles, so there would be no problem in fitting in the new fixtures.”

Linda Sears, Naramata, B.C

“During the construction several visitors, some being in the construction field, commented on the excellent workmanship that was going into our home.”

“When the cabinet maker installed our cabinets he commented that the installation was a pleasure because all the walls were very true. The building inspector commented that if all homes were built this well he would be out of work.”

“We found Joe very personable and easy to work with, even when we made changes to the original plans. Our home was completed on time and there were no deficiencies to be dealt with.”

Lionel & Joan Coleman, Summerland, B.C

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for building our beautiful home. We also would like to provide this letter for your potential customers who would like to be assured of the quality of your work and service.

The construction of our home we recognize was complicated due to its unusual design, particularly the interior. We were most impressed and appreciated your ability to resolve design issues as they arose in a positive and professional fashion and without delay. Much of this credit is due to your exceptional knowledge of construction, cost controls and focus on quality results. The workmanship and attention to detail throughout our home is nothing less than outstanding. This speaks highly of you and all the trades involved – all had high standards and were a joy to work with.

We thank you again for making the construction of our home, which is generally accepted as a stressful experience, into an exciting and enjoyable endeavour  Most appreciated as well, were your excellent client communications skills and the honesty and integrity with which you conducted yourself and dealt with others throughout the project.

We will likely build again at some point and would not hesitate to have you build for us again.

Ed and Linda Thibault

In 1998 We contracted the framing and finishing of our home to Wilf & Joe Wackerbauer, now conducting business under the trade name Okanagan Custom Homes Ltd.

My wife and I were very happy with the workmanship and the manner in which the Wackerbauersʼ erected and finished our home. It was constructed on time, professionally and with attention to detail that made us feel extremely confident in the end product.

Should the need arise, my wife and I would be pleased to contract with Joe Wackerbauer for the construction of a new residence.
