Commitment To Quality

I am very pleased to provide this letter of reference for Wemp and Smith Construction Ltd. Wemp and Smith was the general contractor for the construction of the new St. Patrick’s Church Parish Centre in Napanee completed in 2018. The project was competitively bid and we found that their bid fit well within our expected construction cost estimate. Change orders were kept to the barest minimum and were required only as necessary.
Throughout the course of construction, Wemp and Smith employees displayed a high level of professionalism, experience, dedication and commitment to quality. The company was excellent in developing a teamwork oriented atmosphere and worked well with the architect, their consultants and the local project team to ensure that the finished project met and exceeded everyone’s respective expectations.
Throughout pre-construction meetings, weekly job site meetings, and day-to-day operations of running the job , Wemp and Smith provided clear and direct supervision, prompt and effective written responses to our requests for information, timely and complete information relating to change order requests, with a pleasant attitude and all the while stressing safety requirements for all of the various trades working at the site.
In particular I was very pleased with the care and sensitivity that Wemp and Smith displayed in blending the new parish centre with the existing 175 year old church structure. The project involved attaching the new centre to the existing church requiring very specific and careful attention to construction so as not to damage the existing structure. We couldn’t have been more pleased.
Their on site staff was conscientious and paid attention to detailing. The result was that their quality of workmanship was excellent.
The project was completed on time and within budget.
I highly recommend Wemp and Smith Construction as a General Contractor and am confident that the company would be an excellent member of any development team and that you will be very satisfied with the quality of their work.

Professional, Competent & Flexible
My wife and I are a retired couple who had lived in the same residential house for 30 years and were looking to retire to Amherst Island to be with our family and friends of many years. While we were happy with our former house we were looking for something that mixed the accommodation level to what we had been accustomed to that of cottage life, which included water front property which we had purchased previously. We also were looking for and experienced contractor to spearhead our requirements from start to finish.

Luckily, we found that exact recipe with Wemp and Smith. From the very first meeting to the closure of construction and finally occupancy, they were professional, competent, flexible and available. The end result is stunning and exactly meets the ideals we had in mind. There was not one single moment during the construction process that created any concern for either my wife or myself.

All of the staff of Wemp and Smith were professional, amiable and ensured that we were satisfied with the work they were doing. In addition, the sub-contractors praised the company while we were picking out supplies and further, were also very conscientious in the work they performed.

We would recommend both Mr. Dowling and Mr. Wemp, aka Wemp and Smith, to any and all who considered pursuing building of any kind. It was a very positive experience for my wife and myself. To all, a big thanks.


Worked with Us to Build Our Dream Home
To those who had a hand in building our dream home,

We would like to thank you for making this process such an enjoyable and positive one! Every single one of you were honest, thoughtful, approachable, wise and accommodating. We cannot begin to say enough good things about this process! Building a new home was a huge learning curve for us and you folks did a fantastic job of guiding us through the maze of paperwork, permits, choices and the occasional hiccup. The forethought shown by Derek and Donny, the leads on site and all of the sub-contractors was so appreciated! You all asked the questions we were thinking before we had a chance to ask them! You made accommodations for us to include features from the original cottage and you worked WITH us to ensure that all of the visions we had in our heads, actually come to fruition! It wasn’t always smooth sailing. There were a few hiccups when things didn’t go exactly as planned for one reason or another. But in those few instances, everyone was approachable, patient and thoughtful and solutions or resolutions were found! We have heard some horror stories about owner/building contractor relationships. We can honestly say that we feel so fortunate to have suck a remarkably positive experience with you folks at Wemp & Smith and the sub-contracted groups you brought to our site.

Thank you for helping us to make our dream home a reality! We will absolutely recommend to anyone considering a custom build, to hire you folks for the job!! We wish you – all of you – the very best in the future. 



Amazing Job Building Our Custom Home


We want to say thank you for the amazing job building our new home.  Building a custom home seemed like a huge undertaking and very overwhelming, but after doing some research on contractors in the area, and after meeting with Derek, we decided to choose Wemp & Smith because of their sound reputation and professionalism. We now know we made the right decision, as we are extremely pleased with the whole experience.  We appreciated the knowledge and time that Derek gave us at the start, as he guided us in choosing the property , arranging the hydro and well and taking care of any permits that were needed.  Throughout the entire build of the house, we were impressed how smoothly everything went.  Having a site supervisor that was available every day to oversee the build was a great advantage, as he kept us informed as to what was going on at all times.  He listened to our wishes and made every effort to include them, especially the fireplace which he built exactly as we wanted from a picture.  We were also impressed how professional the trades and subcontractors were. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating. We can’t thank them enough, for doing such a great job.  We are now enjoying our beautiful new home and can sleep easy knowing it was built by one of the best.

Great Workmanship & Excellent Service From The Wemp & Smith Team On Building My New Custom Home

A big thank you to Wemp & Smith Construction!!! Having previously built and contracting out my first home myself, I knew first hand what was involved. It's a big undertaking that does not always go as planned, along with a huge amount of stress. Working with Wemp & Smith on my second build was an incredibly easy process with no stress involved. Great guys and great workmanship. Always friendly and professional. I highly recommend this company!!!

We Had Excellent Experience With Wemp & Smith In Building Our Dream House

As we were first time builders they made it so easy for us . Everyone that worked on it was great, never any complications during the process. Because of their experience everything went great from start to finish. Great job well done . Thank You Mark Patti & Dustin Wolfreys


Thank you Wemp and Smith for making our dream retirement home a reality. Your team from start to finish were beyond exceptional. Shay, the project manager was always there to answer questions, give advice, and resolve any issues (of which there were very few). Everyone on your team as well as the subcontractors were so polite, approachable and knowledgeable.  This speaks volumes to the integrity and professionalism of your company.  I have used Wemp and Smith numerous times in the last 35 years through my company and they have always gone above and beyond. There doesn't seem to be anything they can’t do.

We will be forever grateful to Wemp and Smith for the incredible job they did on our home, from the driveway and septic to the seeding and everything in between.

Thank you Derek and Donny and your incredible team
