Beautiful craftsmanship, integrity…
and above all, great heart.

On two major renovation projects, we have used Oakstone Construction. In both instances, Wayne Guariglia and his crew have shown themselves to be great problem solvers whose work reflects beautiful craftsmanship, collaboration, integrity, and above all, great heart. Oakstone does what it says it is going to do and does that in a creative and timely manner.


No Cutting Corners!

Twice now we have used Oakstone to remodel our home; seven years ago, our kitchen and family room, and spring of 2010, our master bedroom and bathroom. Even with some minor setbacks Wayne’s crew started and completed the job exactly when originally scheduled. They are a delightful crew to work with; always so helpful, thoughtful and tidy. And it is so comforting knowing things will be done correctly. No cutting corners. Even the building inspector said, “Isn’t Wayne doing your work? Oh, then I know it will be good!” When the job was over I always missed seeing Wayne, Paul and Etien.



In 2000, we decided to sell our house in the city and build a new home on our acreage out in the country. After interviewing several quality home builders, we bid and selected Oakstone Construction based on their reputation, quality, and price. Building a new home is supposed to be a very stressful adventure. Wayne and his staff were so professional and attentive, that the building process went very smoothly with little or no stress at all. The craftsmanship and attention to detail of the Oakstone staff, and subcontractors, were first class. If Wayne said it was going to happen, it did, both on time and within budget. Our retreat outside of the city is almost 11 years old, and to this day we’re continually reminded of the great experience we had using Oakstone.


On Time

I recently had the pleasure of contracting with Oakstone Construction to perform my extensive kitchen remodel. My project came in on time and on budget with results that exceeded my expectations. Wayne, I really appreciate you and your subcontractors successful efforts at minimizing disruptions to our daily life during the remodeling process. Your team worked seamlessly with Hannah at Showcase Cabinets to achieve both a functional and beautiful kitchen for my family. I will definitely call you with any future remodeling or building projects and will tell my friends to do the same.


We chose Wayne Guariglia of Oakstone as our builder.
Per his reputation, Wayne and his team consistently demonstrated professionalism, friendliness, knowledge, and skill.

Additionally, Wayne’s organization and attention to details allowed the process to run very smoothly. Throughout the building of our home, Wayne and his team remained on schedule and kept the building site orderly and free of debris. We are extremely pleased with our home and the quality of work they performed. Oakstone is our recommendation for anyone desiring a well built home.



Some people talk about how solid Oakstone homes are. Others talk about the fit and finish. And others talk about the attention to detail and follow up.

I want to talk about dirt.

When the concrete hits the Missouri clay you want a contractor that knows the dirt…the “real” lay of the land. Because no matter what, there will be problems in any building or remodeling project. The real question in choosing a contractor is how well will they represent you when problems arise. Oakstone Construction and Wayne Guariglia know the real dirt on promises and probabilities; process and people; products and problems; pragmatic fixes and permanence. For 6 major building projects, I have relied on the integrity, intelligence and reliability of Wayne Guariglia and his crews.

  • Quiet.
  • Meticulous.
  • Practical.

Those are words you’ll hear me say about Wayne and Oakstone. You’ll also hear me say, “Hi, Wayne. Got another project to talk about.”


For almost a decade, we have used Oakstone for our custom new home construction and remodeling projects. We have high expectations for quality and integrity, and Wayne and his team have consistently met them for us. It speaks volumes that, in this challenging homebuilder market, the people we work with at Oakstone today are the same ones we first met many years ago. The time-proven expertise, pride in craftsmanship, and friendly professionalism are the reasons we keep coming back. We couldn’t be happier to recommend them.


We would “highly” recommend Wayne for building your home or office. We have worked with Wayne on over 3 residences and 1 office building. He gets the job done right and on time, no surprises. His word can be counted on and his reputation is excellent in the business.


Dear Wayne,
I would like to tell others about the fine work you did when building our new home. First came the professional way you kept us informed of expenses along the way, through to the end with the finish work which was excellent. Thank you for making building our home easy for us.


Well Planned

We are very pleased with the recent deck restoration completed by Oakstone Construction. The workmanship was well planned and precisely completed as scheduled with our best interest in mind. They are a very professional team and we would gladly endorse them.



I always wanted to build a custom home but knew nothing of the process! Wayne and his staff helped me every step of the way to stay on track and make good decisions with my choices. I have a beautiful home that is well constructed from a builder whose reputation is unchallenged. It was a great experience and a real sense of accomplishment for me. I have recommended Oakstone Construction to friends and associates over and over again!


Oakstone built an all-season porch and deck for us, and did some interior remodeling in the house. The work was all top-notch, everything was done as promised and the group was great to work with.


We have had Oakstone do remodeling projects for over 2 decades.

In our first home, Oakstone did a wonderful job replacing the fireplace with a built in mirror. The final product was very classy and it is still there, some 5 owners later! We also had them remodel a bedroom and bathroom while we were out of town for 6 weeks and the job was not only done when we returned but done exactly as we wanted. In our current home, we hired Oakstone to do some work before we moved in, the floors they refinished still look great 17 years later! Over the years, we have had Oakstone redo both bathrooms, the screened in porch, add on a mudroom, and sliding glass doors to a small deck. In all cases the workmanship was absolutely outstanding. The work was always completed on time. Wayne’s work crew always left everything neat at the end of the workday. We are obviously quite pleased with all the work Oakstone has done for us and they remain our first choice for every remodeling project.
