Welcome to Woodcraft Cabinet Concepts
If you meet Kurt Hoermann at his showroom at 480 Parkdale Ave. N., Hamilton, you cannot fail to sense his unabashed pride in his calling as a cabinetmaker. His enthusiasm bubbles to the surface as he explains the merits of renovations to kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms (or any room, for that matter) using his ideas in space redesign. His cabinetry skills, acquired over almost 40 years in the trade, have been the backbone of the company, Woodcraft — Cabinet Concepts. Determined to be his own man and exploit the freedom Canada offers those from the Old Country, Kurt opened his cabinet business in 1971, just 10 years after arriving in Canada from his native Germany.
Today, Woodcraft has a long-term staff of 18, plus complementary subtrades. Its focus has essentially remained the same over the past 40 years — renovations for a residential clientele seeking a fresh, new look. The specialization for which the company is renowned is seen in kitchens and bathrooms. These key rooms take the most wear in any home, and benefit greatly from a new lease on life as envisioned by Kurt and his staff. The introduction of visually stimulating wood cabinetry, distinctive tiling, luxurious granite counter surfaces, quality faucets and surrounds, and shower bases with gleaming glass doors transforms jaded rooms into an exciting and welcoming experience.
“Thank you for all your skill, help, efficiency and true caring…” — Rose Scaerle
Woodcraft is, in every way, a family business with its reputation built upon countless word-of-mouth recommendations. As a result, Kurt has undertaken projects in Hamilton, Burlington, Dundas, Oakville, St. Catharines, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Mississauga. His son, Michael, after completing an Industrial Woodworking certificate at Conestoga College and a three-year apprenticeship at Woodcraft, is continuing on the road his father set for Woodcraft. “Michael is rapidly progressing from tradesman to salesman,” Kurt declares. “In renovation work, the verbal expression of ideas and concepts is all-important.”
“Insightful design and careful completion of the plan have made my kitchen a real treasure. I am fortunate, indeed, to have been the recipient of your talents.” — Danae Fraser
“Many thanks for a fabulous job on my kitchen renovation. You came highly recommended, and now I know why. It is difficult to find superb workmanship these days.”
The best place to view the scope of Woodcraft’s work is the showroom. Here is displayed an impressive range of kitchen and bathroom designs, granite, quartz, and laminate countertops. Also on view are over one 100 sample doors, with all manner of wood types and treatments. Although residential clientele are the heart of Kurt’s business, selected commercial work is undertaken, including corporate offices and high-end custom woodworking projects.
Kurt Hoermann and his company, Woodcraft — Cabinet Concepts, illustrates the value of the small family business to the community at large. His ideals and commitment to succeed have enabled him to set down firm roots, and his company continues to prove that craftsmanship has a genuine place in this fast-changing world.
“…when you added the fireplace mantel, it just tied everything together… Kurt, you have a flare for design.”
