Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our clients have to say about us.

I felt it was important to express my satisfaction with the outcome of the restoration.  All your employees that we were in contact with in your company were professional and a pleasure to deal with. Their attention to detail & their respect for our property did not go unnoticed. The entire family loved the outcome. I would recommend you and your team without hesitation and rate the experience a 10+

2019 - Marg & Ray   Rosseau, Ontario


“We had let the log finish go for too long, and the siding finish had failed and was peeling. It was not a pretty sight! Chris and the Cedar Laine crew created a plan, provided samples, and then transformed our home into better than new condition….on time, and on budget, and absolutely no headaches”

2018 - Roy   Bracebridge, Ontario

After speaking to some people who had their log homes restored by Cedar Laine Restoration, and seeing the wonderful reviews, we decided to entrust them with our restoration. We could not be more pleased with the results! Our log home looks outstanding - even better than it did when it was first built 13 years ago! The texture revealed from the corn blasting of our pine logs makes them look so much more natural than the factory smoothness it previously had.
Our crew was very professional, hard working, and exceptionally meticulous. No attention to detail was overlooked, and they cleaned their work area every single day. 
Thank you Cedar Laine!

2018 - Cathy and Trevor   Loretto, Ontario

We hired Cedar Laine Restoration to restore our log home. We are extremely happy with the results. Our log home looks outstanding. This firm has taken the task of truly transforming our log home. The crew was extremely pleasant to work with, they worked very hard, site was always clean and they educated us on each step. All the men were experienced, had all the equipment and materials needed for the project. Very well established and professional company. They also went beyond their obligations to insure better results. We are very pleased with this firm and we highly recommend them.

Thank you kindly Cedar Laine.

2018 - Jacob and Catherine  Erin, Ontario

I want to thank you very much for the exceptional work that your wonderful team has done. They are true professionals and very nice people. There is no doubt we will use you again in the future.

2017 - Peter  Minden, Ont

Thanks Chris,

Your guys did a great job. We are very pleased. As our daughter said, " The cottage is transformed. Looks like new!"

People are the key to any successful venture or business and you have some of the best.

Byron is incredible.

2017 - Don & Valerie South River, Ont

Carrie and I just got to the cottage. Totally awesome!!!

2017 - Dave & Carrie, Algonquin Highlands, Ont.

We are extremely pleased with the job you did in restoring our log home but we are more pleased with the way it was done...your staff certainly represented your company in a way you should be proud off... on time... long hours... polite and courteous...hard working... a great job well done by a group of nice guys…

We will certainly be calling again should the need arise…

2017 - Don & Judy Bracebridge, Ont


Although I was just a guest while a Cedar Laine Restoration was started and finished, I was extremely impressed by the polite knowledgeable professionalism shown by this crew to refinish the engineered log home. Byron and Andrew worked 14-16 hour days, and left the windows and property spotless. Even the products use were 'intelligent': corn cob grit to blast off the old finish was recyclable, and the product used to refinish the home looked incredible! It was great to see passionate professionalism! I live in BC...but these folks cover Ontario and Quebec...too bad!
Bruce Cornwall, Nanaimo, B.C.

We'd like to pass on our thanks for the great job you and your crew did on re-staining our log home it looks fantastic. You have certainly re-established our faith in contractors after the issues we had in getting the log home built. the job you did was exceptional and brought our log home back to original or better condition. The crew were very professional and looked after every detail inside and out. The job site was left in perfect condition and every detail was completed to our expectation. We would not hesitate using you in the future and would highly recommend you to others.

2016 - Ron & Joyce, Meldrum Bay, Ont.


Just wanted to let all of you at Cedar Laine know that we could not be happier with the effort and the outcome of the work you guys have done on our log home. It was a pleasure working with you and we could not be more pleased to have found and hired Cedar Laine to look after the annual maintenance required on a place like ours. In particular the extra care and concern with the small details made a rather large difference at the the end of the project. All the best guys. We will see you again soon.
2017 - Rick , Carling, Ont.

Joanne and I are very pleased with wood restoration project on our place. Your experience and advice was invaluable in helping us with a major project on our place. Kudos to your extremely hardworking crew. They were very respectful of the property and endured everything that Mother Nature threw at them.
Thanks again the place looks fabulous! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone. The whole process from the quote, advise, work done on schedule, quality of work, quality of stain and end result were all top notch.
2017 - Mark and Joanne,  Dorset, Ont.

Thank you Chris and staff for the exceptional work that you have completed for our clients! We are very impressed with the quality of workmanship, attention to detail, and friendliness of your staff.

Tylor transformed the interior of our log home. He made it shine! Our home was even spotless afterwards. Highly recommended !
2017 - Kerrie, Sprucedale, Ont.

I just wanted to let you know how amazed and pleased we are with the job your staff has done on our house here in North Bay. Everything looks better than our expectations. Your guys were a pair of the hardest workers that I have met in a long time. If I was still in business I would be stealing them. We could not believe how efficiently they worked and how well they work as a team. Thanks once again and if you ever want a testimonial let us know we are Cedar Laine supporters now. Thanks so much
2012 - Caroline, North Bay, Ont.


Great job! Love what you guys did to bring our exterior log home back to looking great! Great service! Highly recommended! 

2014 - Jo, Espanola, Ont.


Just a note to let you know how pleased we were with the restoration job your people did on our house. The fellows were very professional and very obliging in the work they did. It was almost like it was their own house. The house looks new again !!!
2016 - Bruce & Noreen, Port Severn, Ont.


We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the results of the refinishing at out cottage. Your work crew was polite and courteous and were a pleasure to have working on the cottage. They not only did a good refinishing job, but they also did a fine job of leaving the site clean when they left.Friends of ours who have been at the cottage since it was built in 1970 have commented that it now looks like it did when they first saw it. You cannot expect more than that. Thanks again and we would be happy to recommend your company to any who ask. 
2015 - Jim and Kathy, Port Sydney, Ont.

The buildings look wonderful and we are very happy with the work. Roger and his team were professional and courteous. They did a great job and cleaned up perfectly. I really appreciate that you do your best to be environmentally responsible by using biodegradable materials and by recycling the cob waste as much as possible.
Thanks again for the work on the house.

2013 - Joanne, Huntsville, Ont.


Bryan and I are thrilled with the work your team did. Our cottage looks brand new! We had the opportunity to be onsite during part of the process and the pride they all took in their work was so obvious. It was as if they were working on their own home. We couldn’t be happier and would be pleased to recommend your company to others.
2015 - Bryan and Sue, Gravenhurst, Ont.


Thanks very much for the work you did on my house. I have had lots of compliments on how nice it looks. You did a great job.
2013 - Lynne, Huntsville, Ont.


We can hardly believe that our 43 year old four seasons log home could look like new again. Your crew did an absolutely great job with attention to detail second to none. They worked very hard to get everything right, the corn blasting was difficult but Rick stuck with it and got the job done great. Byron worked very hard to get the last remaining stain off by scraping. The guys were always happy and looked forward to the toasted tomato sandwiches we would make them for lunch. Thanks again Chris and crew for the super job.
2014 - Ron & Donna Campbellville, Ont.

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic job Roger, Cody and Dan did on my house. They worked from the moment they arrived until the time they Left, sometimes a nine hour day. Very neat and clean. The quality of the work was amazing and very professional. I would go as far as to say they were perfectionist. My house looks brand new and I could not be more pleased. My only regret was that I did not do this sooner. I would not hesitate recommending them to anyone.  I am definitely a very happy client. Thanks so much for such quality work.
2013 - Leslie, Huntsville, Ont.


Thanks for an excellent job.
Very professional and expedient.
Thanks again,

2016 - David, Parry Sound, Ont.


I am so happy that your company does the job right!! I had a good feeling about your company from the moment I met you. You guys are doing an AMAZING job!! we would recommend you to anyone. I can’t wait to show the new deck off
2015 - Cindy, Milford Bay, Ont


We got over to the cottage in the rain today. Very pleased. The colour and wood grain detail is excellent. Cottage Looks excellent. Well done.
2015 - Roly, Rosseau, Ont


We just got back from the cottage this afternoon. We wanted to thank you for the great job you and your crew did on the cottage! We were amazed when we turned the corner to see the restoration of the cottage and the cleaning, caulking and staining that was done at the cottage! Our neighbours also commented on how great it looked. We are very pleased with the result!
2014 - Michael, Lions Head, Ont 


We were on the verge of painting, solid staining or even applying vinyl siding over our 22 year old Viceroy with Western Cedar siding until we saw what Chris and his staff could do to return this beautiful wood to its original state. Our house is now a joy to behold with the grains and knots vibrant and the cedar clean. We wonder how we could have contemplated vinyl siding. The work was done in a courteous and professional manner, timely and clean up even included washing all the windows. We recommend Cedar Laine to anyone with wooden siding to restore their house to its former beauty.
2009 - Len & Miriam,  Huntsville, Ont.


I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the way you and your crew stripped and refinished our cottage. After your crew finished stripping to the bare wood, and then re-coating it looked like a new cottage.
We were also extremely pleased and impressed with your crew. Due to unexpected circumstances, we were not able to be there for the duration while the crew was at work. They were welcomed to stay in our bunkie, use the cottage for whatever they required. They took excellent care, leaving everything tidy inside and out, and did not even come in to watch television at night.
If you ever have any customers in the Buckhorn/Stoney Lake areas who would like to see a sample of your work, they are more than welcome to contact me for a testimonial or visit. Thank you again for an excellent job.

2008 - Michael & Emily, Lower Buckhorn Lake


Chris and his team were absolutely outstanding to deal with and brought our Panabode cottage back to its original glory. Every step from planning to post completion review was completed with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. The crew’s workmanship was simply amazing and we really appreciated how they took great care in keeping the job site clean. We happily recommend Cedar Laine without reservation!
2014 - Dave and Carrie, Kushog Lake


The cedar siding on our 56-year-old cottage doesn’t show its age thanks to the expertise, superb workmanship and keen interest of you and your crew.
2011 - Ed, Haliburton, Ont.


My wife and I were thrilled with the work Tyler did in restoring our kitchen cupboards. After thirty-five years of heavy duty family use our old cupboards now look brand new again, revealing the beauty of the solid cherry wood. The work was completed on time with a minimum of mess. Chris has a good knowledge of wood restoration and I would certainly recommend his company’s work.
2015 - Dave and June, Port Sydney, Ont.


Thank you so much for the fantastic job you have done on our cottage. It was a pleasure having Roger and Dan around. We have never had a more professional, reliable or harder working crew…above & beyond! See you next year for the garage.
2014 - John & Sue, Bala, Ont.

We could not be happier with the finished product. Rick and the boys did a great job , you certainly have a good crew working for you I would gladly recommend you guys to anybody who is interested in doing this process

Chris clearly understands wood better than anyone else I know, and so I trust him to give me good advice. His services, from the initial assessment, to delivery of services and products with his crews, have always been professional. I would gladly recommend Cedar Laine Restoration!
2014 - Dr. Earl, Huntsville, Ont.


Chris’ crews always conducted themselves in a professional fashion. Questions and concerns were dealt with immediately and the work was carried out with attention to detail and in a manner that demonstrated respect for our community. I can heartily endorse Chris Rumball of Cedar Laine Restoration for any wood restoration and painting project where quality of work and respect for the client is important.

Thank you very much for the cottage work. I was very pleased that it looks
Very nice and no messy clean-up was needed.
