What Our Clients Say

“Hello Mary, I never thanked you for the work your husband and his team completed October of last year he set 13 posts. Take a look at part of the completed fence. Nice job on the posts!”

Roland Straatsma

“My thanks to everyone at OPD, From beginning to end, this project was handled in a most professional manner. The office staff were really helpful, and communicative. On the delivery end, Shane and his crew did a great job. This was a great example of how contractor service should be delivered to the client. Based on the overall experience and especially the satisfactory results, I would have no hesitation recommending OPD to others. Congratulations on a job well done.”


“I have hired Shane and the Original Posthole Diggers several times for deck footings, and once for fence post setting. As a professional deck builder, it is a no-brainer to hire out the footing process when possible. Shane and his Crew are professional and his experience shows. Mary is also very easy and friendly to book appointments with. They have been very accommodating whether I just need 4 or 5 footings, or 12+ levelled with each other perfectly.

Dustin Winfield from Oshawa

“I am utterly impressed by the professionalism and excellent work Shane and his crew displayed at my property. Shane and crew arrived on time and were extremely friendly and efficient workers, and dug every hole to the required depth and in the exact marked location – even when they hit some stump trouble. Post digging/setting may seem like a DIY project, but after seeing the ease and speed it can be done with the proper machinery, I will call Shane for every deck footing/post setting job in the future. Was just a great experience for a great price.”

Mike from Toronto

“Your staff was truly amazing on Tuesday. Quick fast and efficient. All crew members were polite and friendly.”
