As an Interior Designer and over 15 years experience in the business...from Vancouver to the GTA, I can honestly say that Kurtis from Madikade is the creme de la creme of contractors. I have worked with Kurtis both on client projects and personal projects...most of them very detailed and I can not say enough great things about Kurtis and his crew. Their work ethic, honesty, efficient use of time and money, and quality of construction is more than what a designer or a client could ever ask for. As an Interior Designer, I premise my business on working with contractors and trade professionals that are reputable, trustworthy, and offer superior workmanship....the client is always first and it is important that the team working for the client understands that. Madikade construction fits that bill! Well done Kurtis and Kudos to Madikade Construction!
My husband and I purchased a older house in Oakville Ont to gut and make it a home. My husband has done most of the work himself but understands when to take a back seat and let a professional step in and help. This is where Kurtis and Luke at Madikade Construction came to the rescue!!
My husband gutted the house and has put everything back in order up to the mudding and taping of the drywall. This is where we ran into a problem. The house is all plaster, even the crown moulding so once he started pulling walls down it is hard to find a stopping point because everything cracked or crumbled down around him. There were a couple of areas where he left the plaster in place but the new drywall butting up against the old plaster was a mess and he had no idea how to fix it. There were joints where old met new that was out about 3/4 to 1 inch. My husband started waving the white flag and turned to Handy Canadian to see if he could get some help. Not having any experience mudding or taping drywall or fixing this new drywall to old plaster mess any advice would help. My husband posted the job on Handy Canadian. We had a couple of people come out to the house to give us a quote. Majority of people said that we needed to rip down the old plaster and drywall the areas we left. We said we didn't want to do that because there was nothing wrong with the plaster walls that we left up and the contractors almost doubled the price of the original quote. This happened 3 times.
Frustrated with the cost and advice from these so called contractors that couldn't even supply a couple of references, my husband setup one last appointment with Madikade Construction.
What a breath of fresh air !!! Kurtis call my husband @ about 3:00 p.m on a Tuesday and was at the house about 1 hour later.
Kurtis showed up right on time . He took a look around and measured up the project in no time. He gave my husband solid advice on different ways he could of hung the drywall to minimize some of the joints, but all and all he said a job well done for a DIY'er. Kurtis looked at the transitions points from the drywall to plaster and with no hesitation said " No problem, that's nothing" we started laughing because every other person said it was a huge issue. Kurtis said that his right hand man Luke has been dry walling for over 30 years and could fix these joints in his sleep. Kurtis called my husband that night to give him a quote, it was a lot better then what others quoted and said Luke could start 7:00 am the next morning!!
We thought we were dreaming. Kurtis gave us his insurance info and 3 references to call that night.
Luke showed up @ 6;45 a.m the next morning and start working right away. We could not believe how fast and efficient this was all taking place. Luke would put in full days and once it was time to head out he would clean the entire space so we didn't have to sit in drywall dust or plaster at night.
If this wasn't enough to our surprise Kurtis would show up in the evening to see the progress and see if we had any question.
We couldn't ask for a more professional team to deal with.
Luke worked his magic and amazed us on how smooth and flat all the joints turned out. This guy is truly amazing at what he does.
On the last day Luke was there he told us he would be back after we primed all the walls just to give it a once over and make sure everything was perfect.
Later that night we got a knock on the door and a guy named Austin that works for Madikade Construction said he was there to give the house a good cleaning and get rid of any extra dust. My husband looked at him like he was joking !!! Again we were amazed at how much pride Madikade Construction takes in making their customers happy.
Luke and Kurtis both came back to see if everything met my husbands standards after the walls were primed. They didn't have to do any touch-ups because they did a perfect job.
Luke, Kurtis and Austin are the most friendly hard working guys that we have done business with. The best part of the whole process is that Kurtis and his team came through on every promise they made and even more. They were the best priced, professional and most of all honest.
Thanks again Madikade Construction for helping us transform just a home in to our dream home.
Don't waste your time with other contractors Kurtis at Madikade Construction Inc is your guy!!
I was looking for a contractor to quote me on installing a 22 foot LVL beam in my 4 level side-split home to remove a structural wall to open up my main floor.
I wanted to do my due diligence in trying to find a contractor to do the work and give me the proper advice on how to tackle the project.
I'm the type of person that knows how to swing a hammer but when it came to 22 foot structural change I thought I would leave it to a professional so I turned to Handy Canadian.
I posted my project and the calls/e-mails started to come in 5 minutes later. I arranged for 3-4 contractors to come out and quote me on the project. Each of them told me something different, get a permit don't get a permit, get a engineer don't get a engineer some even quoted me without even looking in the attic or going in the basement to see what the structural wall was sitting on and just shouted out a price about 20 minutes after they got there. Some didn't even show up at all.
I was at my wits end at this point and about to giving up. But that's when I received a call from Kurtis at Madikade Construction Inc. Kurtis told me that he could come out the next night and take a look at the job and see what need to be done. The next night Kurtis showed up right on time. Kurtis took his time to asses what needed to be done, he was in the attic, on ladders, in the basement had his flashlight going. I was really impressed how thorough he assessed the project and better yet he explained step by step to me what he thought need to be done. Kurtis was at my place for about 1 1/2 hours and said that he will be in touch in a couple of days to have his engineer do the drawings for the project.
Drawings were done in 2 days and quote in hand on the 3rd day. I couldn't believe how fast this was all happening. Kurtis came back out to my house to review the drawings with me and sign the contract and setup a date to start the work. It just so happened that Kurtis had a opening to start in 2 days. Again I couldn't believe how fast this was going to happen. Monday morning 7:00 a.m came and Kurtis and his partner Luke were standing at my front door with 3, 22 foot LVL beams sitting on a truck ready to start working. How these guys got those 22 foot beams so fast I don't know but I knew from that point I was in good hands.
Kurtis and Luke wasted no time at all, these guys got right to work! They worked all day prepping for the beam instillation. They cleaned up at the end of the day better then it was before they even began. The second day Kurtis and Luke were at my house @ 6:00 am. Amazing !!! They got the LVL beam installed to the exact specification of the engineers stamped drawings. Before Kurtis and Luke left after the second day, they walked around the house with me and gave me great advice on other projects in my home reno that I'm taking on myself. They supplied my with name of products and show me the proper way of tackling things .. Again Amazing! These guys did a fantastic job!!!
Right from the first phone call they were nothing short of professional. They were on time , clean, informative, well priced and most of all honest!!
People... if you are reading this and looking for a honest contractor that can do it all... Look no further and call Kurtis at Madikade Construction Inc.
I'm just a normal guy that bought a old house looking to do a reno and needed some help.
Thanks again Fellas
