Testimonials & Reviews

Jackie Taylor

"Great people, very professional! We love working with the Strongwood team!"

Sopita Wasylyk

"Thanks to Lyle and his team for a job well done! Although the project took longer than we expected, the basement is beautiful and we are super comfortable down there. Lyle is fantastic to deal with and him not being too overly concerned about money was truly a breath of fresh air this day and age. His number one concern always seemed to be to make the customer happy. I would strongly recommend Strongwood due to the price and the final product. After looking around and speaking to numerous contractors for about a year, we decided to go with Strongwood and we are very happy we made that choice. Thanks again, guys!"

Barb Peterson

Maureen Kelly Mastel

"Just had Strongwood Construction make me a Kitchen Island & replace all my countertops. Love love the job they did. Very easy people to deal with & all very hardworking & efficient. Would certainly recommend them."

Lindsay Henderson

"Strongwood construction installed our countertops and we could not be happier with the job they did! They were very professional and great communicators - I would gladly use them again for any other renovation projects."

Bob and Joan Cruickshank

We were extremely satisfied with the workmanship and service provided by your installer. All involved were respectful of our home, easy to communicate with, and knew exactly what they were doing! Even though we could not see any deficiencies ourselves... the main installer re-ordered 4 doors which did not meet his personal standard. We were impressed!

Your Questions answered about...

Renovations in Medicine Hat

It’s ultimately up to you! However, on average, we see clients and fellow homeowners renovate their kitchen every 10 to 15 years. The main focus may sometimes be for updating appliances to more current technologies,  or it may be just to increase resale value for your home. Either way, the benefits are incredible, and it won’t hurt to do it sooner than later so you can enjoy the true potential of your home!

The answer is- ASAP! If you want it, it’s best to book well in advance to guarantee the time of completion. Additionally, booking far in advance puts you at the front of the pack for all those spring renovations everybody wants as well.

It’s hard to give an exact time frame, let alone, a ballpark time frame. Each renovation requires different levels of work and effort, so it all varies. Although, on average, we are seeing most bathroom renovations fluctuate around 4 weeks of work. If time is of the essence, call us today and see how quickly we can make your dream come true!

There are a few interesting tips and tricks to utilize small living spaces. You could start by using condo-sized furniture in order to limit the sense of congestion. Some of the “condo” furniture has elevated spindle legs to give “breathing” space. Also hanging mirrors on the walls gives the artificial sense of more space psychologically speaking.

About our owner

Lyle Woodward

Lyle was born and raised in Medicine Hat where he grew up as ‘Dad’s Little Helper’ in the shop. After graduating from high school with honors, he spent a year at the Medicine Hat College in pre-med and played on the Rattler’s Men’s basketball team. Upon serving a mission in Montreal for two years, he returned with different ambitions for his career. He moved to Edmonton to study Construction Engineering at NAIT, where he graduated with a 3.95 GPA and received offers from large commercial companies.

Deciding to follow his passion for renovation, he and his new wife moved to Lethbridge where he worked as a project manager and estimator for a residential renovation company. After gaining experience and yearning to build his own company, they moved back to Medicine Hat where Strongwood Construction was born. From humble beginnings in Dad’s garage with a family van, Lyle grew the company, eventually catching the eye of Home Depot, who brought the company on board for their installation services.

Outgrowing their garage space, they moved into a 2000 sq. ft. commercial building and added employees to the mix. Lyle has since expanded Strongwood Construction to 4000 sq. ft., 11 employees, four “Best of Medicine Hat Renovation Company” awards, and continues to impress customers with their design services and quality work. As a husband and father, this hometown entrepreneur has created one of Medicine Hat’s largest and most premier renovation companies.
