Sawtooth owner and operator Everette Kentel is a highly experienced Red Seal Journeyman Carpenter. Everette started working in construction with some of the best-known companies within the Okanagan-Shuswap area. After several years of experience in the industry, he started his own company to offer a high level of professionalism and customer interaction to the industry that he saw was needed. He is passionate about what he builds with attention to every detail and expects the same high level of expertise from his employees and sub-trades.
Everett oversees all aspects of every project, from beginning to end to ensure that each client’s requests and expectations are met or exceeded. Sawtooth Construction is run on the back end as a family business so clients will also connect with Julie, Everett’s wife time to time when you work with us. Julie looks after the office work and additional administration aspects.
Every single project we take on is important to us and we always bring our best to the table!
"Everett did the bathroom renovations on my home. From ripping out the old blue tub to set the amazing new tile on the wall. He took 1971 bathrooms and turned them into modern bathrooms. This was all done within a tight timeline and on budget. I was greatly satisfied with the workmanship, professionalism, and understanding of what I wanted to be done. I am very grateful for all the hard work that went into my home. I would highly recommend Sawtooth Construction."

"We had previously worked with another contractor who we were really pleased with so finding a new contractor to build our cabin ~ they would have big shoes to fill ~ and Everett and Sawtooth did it, and more!! We were so pleased with our whole experience with Sawtooth ~ from planning, budgeting, day-to-day interactions, and the final product. The craftsmanship was superb and the end product was better than we expected. It was a pleasure to work with Everett. He was friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable which was so helpful in the decision-making of the product. He worked hard and efficiently, ever mindful of our budget and timeline. We will always choose Sawtooth now. Thank you so so much."

"Everett was a total joy to have in our home. He was very professional, personable, and reliable. We placed a heavy load on him with a tight deadline and he delivered as he said he would. We couldn't have been happier with the finished product, it's outstanding! He understood our design and what we were looking to accomplish - and it turned out better than we could have imagined. We recommend him 100% and will be using him again in the future."

"Everett Kentel constructed the deck around our hot tub and also custom-built two planter boxes. The job was done on time and on budget using high-quality materials. Everett's workmanship and attention to detail were exemplary and of a very high standard. We are extremely pleased with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
