Working with Scott was an amazing experience! His collaborative approach allowed us to share our vision through his guided expertise.
Our collective ideas were masterfully crafted into a custom closet system with coordinating built-ins. In addition to his custom millwork, Scott also assisted in space planning our main floor into an open concept living/dining area, that has exceeded our expectations.
Scott’s pride of workmanship, attention to detail and precision craftsmanship ensured a ‘worry free’ experience.
We look forward to working with him again and have highly recommended him and his team, to family and friends for their home improvement projects.
Thunder Bay’s newest addition… a company (team) that is focused on quality, integrity and exceptional customer service!

I met Scott, after firing someone who was installing my new kitchen and had made several mistakes. Scott had been recommended to me by a neighbour. Scott gave his suggestions to resolve my issues and took charge, starting right away. Scott does quality work, at a fair price. He is knowledgeable, skilled in his trade. He works safely and is very trustworthy. Good listening skills to understand what I needed, explains what he will do, does it! He was always on time, friendly, you can see he takes pride in a job well done. Customer satisfaction is important to him. I highly recommend Boreal Carpentry for your next project! Thank you kindly Scott, everyone loves my new kitchen -especially me! Best wishes to your future successes!

We want to thank Scott and Boreal Carpentry for transforming our old, outdated kitchen to such an updated, modern look. His meticulous detail, precision and conscientiousness is felt throughout every part of his renovation right down to the cleanliness of how he works. If you’re getting any renovation in the Norwest, there’s no reason to look anywhere other than Scott and his team at Boreal Carpentry. They are no doubt true professionals!

We would like to thank Scott and his team for a job well done. He took our grungy old basement shower and turned it into a bright beautiful place. Scott was most helpful with suggestion of place to look for materials we needed and wonderful at making the tile flow together. He and his team were prompt, polite and professional. A pleasure to have working in our house. We highly recommend Scott, his team and their work!

It was by happenstance we came across Boreal Carpentry. I was browsing Instagram one day and saw some work a friend was having completed in her house. I fell for the finishes and stayed for the approachability of Scott, and now his team.
Our renovation started small(ish), with just a kitchen and it became the re-imagining of our single bathroom, as well as the addition of a master bathroom. This addition and re-imagining lead to a subsequent reorganization of our second floor and expansion of the master bedroom into a previously existing hallway. Returning to the kitchen, we decided to remove a wall between it and the dining room to open up the space. So, our renovation was not a small one or an easy process but, thanks to Scott and his team, it never felt daunting or overwhelming.
To be truthful, the entire process was an absolute dream. Taking on the design ourselves, (let’s be honest here, Kara took on the design), Scott recommended suppliers for cabinetry, counter tops, flooring, and tiles. The recommendations were spectacular and the suppliers only had positive remarks about working with Scott. Each and everyone of the suppliers were excited to talk about their respect for him and always mentioned how enjoyable it was to work with Scott and how much they admire his work.
Their respect and admiration are 100% substantiated; Boreal Carpentry’s work is absolutely meticulous. The time and care spent on each and every aspect is so evident with the process and the finishing work. It was also always nice to check in on a site that was so clean and tidy. At the end of (almost) every day it was incredible to step into a clean site and see the progress.
The best part of all, timelines were kept and, oh my, they were tight. With a second child on the way Scott was dealing with a lot and he met a very strict two month timeline. Baby Boreal arrived just days after we moved back into our home; perfect timing if you ask us!
We’ve been recommending Scott and his team to anyone who asks about our massive renovation. There are lots of people asking our renovation; two bathrooms and a kitchen are not an easy feat. Also, to get all that work completed in two months is close to miraculous.
We would recommend Boreal Carpentry to anyone looking to have renovations, new builds or spectacular work to be done in their home, camp, rental etc. We can’t wait to redo more of our home and hopefully, someday build a camp.
Thunder Bay is a better place with Boreal Carpentry. Thank you again, a million times over.

Scott and his team recently (July) did a complete reno to the ensuite of our master-bedroom. This included wall-to-ceiling tile in the shower, heated tile floor in the main part of the bathroom as well as installation of the vanity and toilet. We found Scott and his team to be punctual, courteous and well organized. When they showed up at the job site they came with an agenda and did not waste time…
Though Scott is a master carpenter by trade, he is extremely knowledgeable in the new innovative materials and methods of installing tile. He was very helpful with comments and suggestions about, size, colour and availability but left all the final decisions to us.
When it comes to the project, he is a “lead, follow or get out of the road” kind of guy because work has to happen.
He will be instrumental in the design and renovation of our next (bathroom) project.
He gets my “gold” seal stamp of approval. Give him a call, you’ll be glad you did.
