Client Testimonials

Kathryn & Paul   |   December 2019

We cannot say enough about Dave and Jarrod’s workmanship and professionalism. It was VERY pleasant having them in our home and the particular aspects of their attendance to our job that we were most impressed with included their quiet intelligent manner, methodical and careful pace, cooperative way of working with each other, and the great care they took to protect our home from damage. Many thanks.

Bruce & Chris   |   October 2019

Roy, we are truly blessed to have collaborated with South Shore Cabinetry on this wonderful, creative new feature for our condo. It is a dream! Please convey our appreciation to your very fine craftsmen/women – they, and your installers, made it happen for us, under your direction. Thank you, too, for mentoring us throughout the process. We’re not even neophytes yet, but we did learn lots!

Ron & Elaine   |   September 2019

This letter is with reference to the wonderful cabinets and millwork that you installed in our new house and garage. We wanted to express our appreciation and gratitude for all your help and consideration that you and your staff gave us for the new cabinets and millwork in our house. You were so very helpful and patient during the initial cabinet layout and came up with so many wonderful ideas during the consultation and installation that helped to make our cabinet and millwork installation look awesome. You were so prompt and attentive to address any items or questions that we had, and we sincerely appreciate that. In summary, you guys did an awesome job and we are truly one very satisfied and happy customer. Thank you for that.

Jordan and Hayley   |   August 2019

When we first set out to design our new home we were faced with the challenge of agreeing on a colour palette that we would both continue to enjoy for years to come. We were prepared for this task to leave us at odds, but in the end we agreed almost immediately on the drama, warmth, and stream-lined beauty of a matte black and oak kitchen. But even though this was the aesthetic we had our hearts set on we were left with three resounding questions: “what about the maintenance?”, “is black too dark?”, and “how will this hold up with children?” (especially ones with an affinity for yogurt).

We are happy to report that after six months of living with black and oak in almost every room of the house it has been a resounding success. All of our original concerns have been addressed – the matte black finish is both incredibly warm and dramatic, and anything the children do get on their new “matte black canvas” (ie yogurt finger-paintings) wipes up easily and leaves the cabinets still looking brand new.

In short (but clearly not that short) we are in a daily state of awe over how our home has turned out. Roy and his team at South Shore blew us away with their quality of workmanship as well as the materials they used. The knowledge and care with which they made decisions and recommendations gave us a phenomenal sense of comfort and we couldn’t be happier. We will surely work with them again in the future.

Neil and Carole   |   March 2019

The kitchen is officially completed. We love it, every aspect of it, so thank you to everyone at South Shore once again for a fantastic job.

Marcella   |   November 2018

Over 7 years ago Roy and his team, particularly Brian, installed all the millwork in my new home – kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, office, closets.  The attention to detail, the finishing and the personal service was outstanding.  The real testimonial to their work is that today, my home still looks like it is new.  The finishing and workmanship have held up to years of use and love.  I’ve decided to make some changes in one room, and I would not do it with anyone but Roy.  Thank you.

Leaf   |   October 2018

Every time I come back to my place, I take in the gorgeous craftsmanship in my place . . . what you created and built here was so beyond what I ever hoped for – and I am appreciating it more every day.  You made my choices so easy.  The end results so perfect. Thank you!

Jim   |   February 2018

Installation went very well. Will and Jim did an excellent job installing cupboards! Jim’s talent and patience in finishing is what high quality is all about ! Roy and Tara were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thanks so much for making this an easy and memorable experience.

Chris   |   December 2017

We want to say that it was a pleasure to work with your entire team from the design work by Robyn to the installation crew.  We are delighted with our new kitchen!

Suzanne   |   October 2017

Right from the beginning, I was so pleased to have South Shore Cabinetry Ltd., do the cabinetry for my country kitchen. They were recommended by my designer and I am so grateful they could do our kitchen cabinetry. Such a respectful and professional experience! Also, South Shore Cabinetry Installers were meticulous. Every day spent working in my beautiful kitchen is a joy! Thank you South Shore Cabinetry!!

Rose & Jeff   |   August 2017

I approached South Shore Cabinetry because our neighbour and friends ( the Muellers) had recommended them highly.

Robyn, South Shore’s interior designer was extremely helpful and spent a good amount of time over several visits talking to us about some of the ideas we were considering.  I presented Robyn with a  folder of ideas I had found on Houzz and Pinterest.  A couple of the ideas were new to her but she was enthusiastic and confident that South Shore would be able to provide the custom built features we wanted.

The result was a kitchen that far exceeded our expectations. It’s beautiful, it’s functional, it’s modern and without question, the main feature in our home.

One expects good customer service when planning a major renovation.  South Shore raised the bar on that expectation with their enthusiasm, interest,  quality of workmanship and especially with how accommodating they were to our needs and schedules. 

Contrary to some of the horror stories we had heard about major kitchen renovations, we found this to be the most positive renovation experience in our 27 years in this house. We would recommend South Shore to anyone looking for quality, professional help and excellent service before, during and after your renovation.

Ruth & Bob   |   October 2016

Thank you all for our beautiful new kitchen. It is great and we are enjoying it each and every day. Thank you Roy for your expert craftsmanship, eye for detail, and hard work.

Thank you Tara, Jordyn, Will, and to all the other staff that we did not meet, but worked on our kitchen.

Jen & Garth   |   October 2016

Korey and Robyn I can not thank you enough!
I love my new kitchen and all the cabinets. You both have been incredible and believe me, we will pass the word along!
Your installers have been professional, knowledgeable, tidy and very personable. It has been a joy dealing with you and your company.

Tom & Paula   |   June 2016
My wife and I recently decided we would like to have our kitchen renovations done by a professional company. After much research we choose South Shore Cabinetry to undertake the renovations. We found the price to be very competitive and the finished product excellent. The service that South Shore Cabinetry provided was outstanding. In particular, Tara Bushby went way beyond the service you would normally expect  from a professional. We cannot thank Tara enough! We are very particular as to whom we would recommend to do work in people’s homes but without hesitation we would strongly recommend Tara and her team at South Shore Cabinetry.
Camp Imadene   |   April 2016

Dear South Shore Cabinetry,

We are so grateful for you all. Thank you for all the time and energy you have poured into our renovations. Our bathroom looks amazing, and we love all the paint colours you helped us pick too! We appreciate you!

Dear Roy and family,

We absolutely LOVE our kitchen you made for us! It’s not only beautiful but practical and convenient as well. Roy, you were so wonderful to work with and your creativity was awesome. The glass case feature you added is so cool!

We also love our gorgeous bathrooms, especially our master ensuite. The angled cabinetry is so great. And I can’t forget about the awesome laundry room! Thank you for helping us build our dream home!

Liz & Ralph   |   December 2015

To Tara, Roy, and the crew!

Thank you so much for the excellent job you all have done on our little “retirement” cottage. The kitchen and banquette are absolutely wonderful, the craftsmanship exquisite! Even the entry way has become a wonderful addition! And the storage! What a treat! Thank you for making it all so easy for us. Looking forward to part 2!

Best wishes and many thanks.

Deanne & Brian   |   November 2015

Prior to choosing our kitchen cabinet makers, we met with and obtained quotes from 5 different companies. What impressed us right from the start with South Shore was their designer, Robyn. She was so great to work with and helped us with our concept and ideas. Their shop foreman, Korey, was excellent and always so accomodating. During the install stage the attention to detail by South Shore’s installer, Mick, was amazing. He brought everything we had imagined to life in our kitchen. We also appreciate South Shore’s willingness to be flexible as the install progressed. We made a few changes but it all seemed to be taken in stride. We were also pleased that the quote we were given was the final price – no hidden costs or surprises. Overall, we found the entire renovation experience to be fun and positive thanks to South Shore’s team.

Liz & Mike   |   November 2015

After 25 years with my oak kitchen cabinets, I really wanted a white kitchen with shaker cabinets and some glass inserts that would brighten and modernize the kitchen/family room and that would go with the traditional style of our home.  Our kitchen is large relative to the size of the house and is a focal point of the house so we needed to get this renovation right in order to maintain and hopefully improve the resale value.  After getting 3 quotes, we chose South Shore Cabinetry.

Like most, we really live in our kitchen and being without one for very long would be difficult for us.  South Shore Cabinetry was excellent from start to finish. Robyn, their interior design consultant was attentive to every detail.  She was always there with ideas and options and made sure the functionality of the kitchen would be what we needed. From the time the old kitchen was removed to the time our new kitchen was operational was less than 3 weeks!

Korey, Brian and Dave made sure each phase of the installation was done to perfection.  Every detail was addressed and we were surprisingly relaxed given the chaos these types of renos can cause.

We have had many compliments on our kitchen and people are very surprised at how little it cost compared to other kitchens of the same size. We would not hesitate to recommend South Shore Cabinetry and want to thank them again for a job very well done.

Roger & Jonathan   |   July 2014

We are so fortunate to have had Chris Biickert of Precision Marble refer us to Robyn Waterman at South Shore Cabinetry. From the moment we stepped through the front door and Robyn greeted us, we knew we were in good hands. Her warm, personable, professional manner put us completely at ease. She listened attentively, and with understanding, to our need for a smart, cleanly designed, very functional, 99.5 inch length master ensuite bathroom vanity, kitchen counter height (36″ overall with the marble counter top installed). We wanted to do a major change-out of the completely impractical gloss and glitz magazine-look vanity that the builder had installed in our just recently built home. Robyn showed us various styles of cabinetry from which to choose and we readily selected the “Shaker” look, the materials and the stain colour, plus selected door/drawer pulls in a style to match the faucets we’d be having. The overall design was readily submitted to us and approved by email. It captured exactly what we had envisioned and at a very reasonable price point. The high quality materials and excellent craftsmanship were totally evident in the finished cabinetry and its excellent soft-closing, smooth drawer mechanism. Installation of the cabinetry was impeccable and efficient. The fit and finish was perfection.

The installers took pride in their work and were very respectful of our home. We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience and the wonderful change in our ensuite.

Thank you, Robyn; thank you to your excellent shop craftsmen; and thank you to your installers. Please feel free to refer any client to us for our recommendation.

Marjorie   |   March 2014

Thank you all so very much for fixing up my old trunk so beautifully. It is perfect. I thought it quite exceptional that you would take on a small job like this. But you all seemed to know that it meant something to me and were so kindly careful to keep it looking old but making it new. I found all the staff a delight to deal with, so friendly and professional. I am telling anyone who is interested what a gem we have here in Lake Cowichan.

David & Marilyn   |   February 2014

We would like to express our thanks and appreciation to all at South Shore Cabinetry. Tara was exceptional to deal with and redesigned our old kitchen into a modern and functional kitchen. We are extremely happy with the quality of the workmanship and the service we have received. We would of course recommend South Shore Cabinetry to any of our friends.

Ian & Debby   |   December 2013

Finally we are beginning to realize that this amazing kitchen belongs to us and is the result of a project completed by South Shore Cabinetry. When we began the process Roy was very clear about his interpretation of what we had as a vision for our finished kitchen. Not only did he listen well to our desires but he then translated them into exactly what we hoped for. Along the way he made some wise suggestions and gently guided us throughout the process.

The job was completed on time and on budget.

Roy’s staff acted impeccably. From administrative, builders and installation everyone was efficient but at the same time warm and friendly…like they were an extension of our family. For that we are grateful to Roy, Brian, Robyn, Tara and the rest of the shop.

When we committed ourselves to the project Roy told us he wanted us to be overwhelmed. He did that and then some.

Thank you South Shore!

Debbie   |   March 2013

We had South Shore Cabinetry come an do an estimate for our kitchen. They were very informative and accommodating. We found Roy and Tara and crew to be friendly and professional. We gave them some ideas for our kitchen and they designed it and more to exactly the way we pictured it. We love our beautiful kitchen and would recommend them to anyone. They are a family owned business and treat you like family. Thank you so much to the staff at South Shore Cabinetry Ltd.

George & Jackie   |   January 2013

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the excellent service that you have provided.
