Justin Linden, President
Justin Linden is a skilled home renovator who was introduced to the renovation and building trade by his Engineer father in Ottawa at a very young age. He attended Carleton University, where he earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree, and then went on to earn a Chartered Accountant designation. For decades, he worked as a financial manager in the real estate and high-tech industries, but quietly continued expanding his knowledge and skills in the renovation industry. During his free time, he pursued a technical education at Algonquin College, taking several construction and design-related courses as well as formal independent study through NKBA on Kitchen Design and NARI on residential remodelling and design. In 1981, he founded his first renovation company.
Justin's passion for innovation and design led him to the creation of Service Blocks Inc. Home Renovators in 2005, which quickly grew into a successful residential renovation business. In 2010, he refocused the company and changed the name to LindenCraft to target the growing demand for high- quality, designer kitchens, bathrooms and other interior residential spaces. His passion for his craft and insatiable love for learning has resulted in his constantly investigating new products, technologies and design models that benefit his clients. The result is a renovation and design experience that is unparallelled in artistic skill, innovative thinking and endless passion for the fine art of renovation.
