Muskoka Building Services

Boat Launch and Private Dock Builder

Thomas J. Stead Construction Ltd works with you to plan and build your dream home or cottage and will be your valued business partner for the duration of your current construction project and beyond. We are turn key contractors who start from vacant land or renovation and end with the beds made and the flowers planted, cupboards and fridge stocked and supper in the oven if that is your desire. Our range of services, depth of resources, and professional skills enable us to service clients in the following areas:

We will work with you to increase the value and enjoyment of your home or cottage with remodels/renovations. Renovating does not  have to be an exercise in supporting the Tylenol industry and maxing out your line of credit.

There are many kinds of renovations to consider which range from:

  • Interior
  • Exterior
  • Commercial
  • Landscaping
  • Hardscaping
  • Construction and Additions
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing, etc.
Barging has long been the means to bring equipment, employees and material to islands or other areas where land travel is not a viable option. Equipped with 2 barges and a small fleet of boats, we can accommodate not only “drive to” jobs but welcome the often more challenging water access jobs as well. Our barges enable us to haul our own excavation equipment, do heavy construction, crib dock repair and construction, steel dock construction, general contracting in a cost effective manner that was not formally feasible, as well as recovering sunken boats. We not only transport building materials and aggregates to your water access project but quite often deliver furniture and appliances as well. Having our barges enables us to pass along to our customers better value and gives us greater control over projects by not having to outsource to a 3rd party barging service.

Our barges which both have a 30 ton capacity are transportable by road so whether your project is in Halliburton County, Lake of Bays, Almaguin or on just about any body of water within the territory we cover, we are there to meet your needs. Watch for the Jolly Roger coming soon to a lake near you!

With the purchase of our 2 barges we now offer a broad variety of both crib and steel dock construction with the ability to work from shore or water and add value, recreational enjoyment and beauty to your residential or vacation property! We recommend to our customers only environmentally friendly and long lasting materials and construct them with with pride and quality of craftsmanship that we have come to be know for in our many years of dock building.

From resorts to family cottages we are committed to customer satisfaction and adhere strongly to start and completion dates on your unique dock be it constructed for boat mooring or to create a shoreline deck for socializing and fun times on that spectacular Muskoka lake.

As a dealer for Hutchings Marine Products Ltd, we are your one stop resource for all your docking needs which include but are not limited to dock cleats, bumpers, ladders, miscellaneous hardware, safety kits and much more!

As your contractor we will invest in extensive front-end time to fully understand the functionality of a new building. Working with your wish list we consider every factor from the number of occupants, to aesthetics, time frames, future additions and landscaping. Once we are confident that our vision and yours are in tune we bring Architects and Engineers to the team and start with preliminary drawings. Upon your approval, the drawings are amended if needed, further developed and the pricing process begins ultimately presenting to you initial cost estimates and schedules.

Upon approval of the design concept and cost proposal, our team will prepare detailed architectural, structural and mechanical and electrical drawings and specifications needed for permit submissions. Materials with predictably long lead times or critical materials will be ordered well in advance in order to keep your project on track. Our project managers then prepare to hire the sub trades and we are ready for construction to begin!

Once the permits are obtained, the ground breaking begins and we start to build. On site meetings are arranged to keep you informed on the progress and email pictures are also sent on a regular basis.

As your Design/Build contractor we provide unified management and control over every aspect of construction. With all disciplines under one command, working to the same schedule, we deliver high quality, professional work with efficiency and predictability on time and on budget.

Small renovations and upgrades to complete rebuilds and new construction of your home, cottage and waterfront activity area.
We work closely with all of the municipalities in which we do work to ensure all permits are received on your behalf. This includes attending any necessary counsel meetings to deal with planning issues that may arise.
In budgeting your project we work to keep our clients aware of cost expectations, in keeping overruns to a minimum and to ensure that our clients are aware of any additional costs.
All jobs have a highly qualified foreman overseeing the progress and working closely with the customer, as well as a Project Manager on staff which the foreman may defer to as needed.
We offer our customers a full range of professional services

Which include all of the above as well as obtaining all permits on your behalf, attending council meetings should that be required, hiring sub trades and combining our expertise and experience with your ideas and dreams to ultimately renovate to your satisfaction the project of your choice.
