We’re proud to be a third generation, family owned design-build renovation company who is committed to providing the guaranteed level of excellence needed to create exceptional renovation experiences for our clients.
We’ve been helping homeowners in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph fall in love with their homes all over again for 70 years! With more than 2,600 projects under our (tool) belt, we are grateful to our clients who have put their trust in our abilities and given us the privilege of working on such amazing projects. Through collaboration with our partners and clients, pride in our work, and captivating design-build solutions, we remain Waterloo Region’s premier renovation team.
At Pioneer Craftsmen, we improve everything we touch. Our decades of experience has taught us that it is a happy combination of thoughtful design and flawless craftsmanship that make our renovations truly customized.
We work diligently everyday to continue the legacy of our founding family by always leading our craft and training the next generation through on-site experience and apprenticeships so they are as skilled and full of pride in their work as our team is now. What began as a job building homes for young father, farmer, and Air Force pilot Ken Adam in 1953 turned into a vision for a renovation-driven future. By 1979, second generation Gary’s foresight passion was to renovate homes rather than build new, and thus, the future for Pioneer was solidified and has continued on today with partners Jamie Adam, 3rd generation Adam, and Paul Meier.
Whether we are renovating a generational home, a newly purchased condo, transforming a place to be more accessible, or participating as a company on a community project, we approach every renovation the same way; making it different by design and executed with the finest craftsmanship.
At Pioneer we are full of big ideas that will transform and add value to the home of every client. So, it’s only fitting that our foundation is built on even bigger IDEAS that ensure a solid future for our team to evolve together, and ultimately provide the best experience and results for our treasured clients.
Every year, we roll up our sleeves, strap on our tool belts, dig into our hearts, and head into our ever-growing community to make a genuine difference.Over the years we’ve been very fortunate to contribute our decades of experience to many local organizations that are led by incredible individuals within our region. From colorful and interactive play structures on school yards to enhance the learning experience for all students; to impactful neighborhood gardens that will provide fresh produce for those in need - we approach all our community projects with the same care and attention, planning, custom design solutions, and meticulous craftsmanship as that of our renovation clients’.
The energy within the Pioneer team throughout the entire project is electric, and is also some of the most fun we get to have together! Though none of it compares to the eruption of excitement, giggles, and happy tears on the faces of those we’ve truly helped; that’s our favorite part!
We’re looking forward to starting our next give-back initiative.

- Pioneer Renovations Receive Local & National Recognition | May 17, 2019
Pioneer Craftsmen is proud to announce that two of our recent projects are receiving honours in the building community, both locally and nationally!
Our Cambridge kitchen renovation project “Home Chef Haven” was named WINNER of the Waterloo Regional Home Builders Association’s 2019 WRHBA SAM Awards of Distinction for “Most Outstanding Kitchen, in a home 2,001 – 3,000 sq ft”. Inspired by the homeowners’ culinary talent and interests, as well as their habit of cooking together, this kitchen is as warm and inviting as the family itself.
Our Kitchener renovation project “Woodland Chic” was announced as WINNER of the Waterloo Regional Home Builders Association’s 2019 WRHBA SAM Awards of Distinction for “Most Outstanding Home Renovation or Conversion (over $100,000)”. Designed to be an open, warm space, inspired by modern Swedish farmhouse influences, this once dated bungalow now has a modern flair and updated appeal. It was also recognized as a 2019 Finalist for the Canadian Home Builders' Association awards.
"Congratulations to the entire Pioneer Craftsmen team," said Jamie Adam, President of Pioneer Craftsmen, "Through collaboration with our partners, pride in our work and innovative solutions we remain Waterloo Region's premier design-build renovation team!"
