Mike's team was extremely swift in getting the work done with attention to detail and very neat and clean.
The guys were on time every day to start working.
It was easy to communicate our ideas to the team and with what we wanted to get done.
They were precise and very professional.
I planned to renovate my kitchen and contacted with 3 contractors, finally I chose M & D Buildings, because they provided a good design and a quote within my budget. Mike is great at coordinating the project, we discussed a lot because I wanted a customized kitchen, thank you Mike for your patient. I have a brand new kitchen right now and I am very enjoying to cook in it.
We used M & D Builders for several projects over the years. He finished all projects on time and on budget as quoted.
We recently renovated our kitchen and main floor and I was so impressed with the quality craftsmanship and professional way they conducted in all aspects of the project as usual. Mike was precise with his monitoring of the budget and followed up with all my questions promptly and accurately.
Here is the thing! If you want to work with a contractor that answers your phone calls and emails in a timely fashion, does the job as they said for the amount they said it would cost at the beginning, and finishes when they said they would, then M & D Builders is the right company for you to work with.
Mike and Mike are great to deal with, we use there services at RCT on a regular bases for Process Improvements to our building. We have had this relationship with Mike and his team for years. They have built, bathroom, kitchens, offices, cabinets and everything else we could think of.
It's always a Pleasure.
When we set out to renovate our kitchen and the main floor, we decided to make as many decisions about layout and appliances in advance of hiring a contractor. We spent months and months trying to get a contractor to give us a reasonable quote. We finally found Mike and he was amazing!
The crew that did the work were incredible, courteous, clean and quiet. Their workmanship and attention to detail was phenomenal. Neighbors’ were very impressed with the work, and as I understand it, have already called M & D Builders for projects of their own.
We highly recommend Mike and his team for any type of home renovation required especially with their expertise in structural alteration.
I am the first to admit that I am highly focused on attention to detail and live by the motto ‘near enough, is not good enough’.
It took me a few weeks of reading reviews of local contractors and the reviews for M & D Buildings stood out from all the others. All M & D reviews over the years have been consistent in their ratings of 5 stars and the occasional 4 stars. As a result, my husband and I did not call for quotes from any other contractor, we called Mike at M & D.
Mike came at precisely the time arranged and discussed what we wanted and emailed a quote the following day. We accepted the price and within two weeks work began with the demolition.
Mike had secured a lock box on our front door so his crew could come and go. The first day of demolition when I walked into the house, I thought nobody had showed up! The house was as clean as we had left it, and this was the case every day after until work had been completed.
As well as fitting a new 72” double sink vanity, toilet, and tiled flooring, a new large walk in shower needed to be custom built, plumbing and tiling installed, new baseboards fitted and finally painting completed. Mike and his crew are highly skilled, knowledgeable, polite, professional, respectful and all together genuinely took pride in their individual trades. Mike visited the ‘site’ regularly and responded to my texts immediately. The work was completed in the exact timeframe provided.
It took a while for my husband and I to save for this remodel and we could not be more pleased with the end result.
Without hesitation we will recommend Mike and his crew at M & D Buildings. Nobody will be disappointed with the excellent standard of workmanship.
M&D Buildings are a fantastic team to work with.
From the very beginning we sought to work with a contractor that would be a partner in our project. Mike from M&D was a partner. He guided us from the estimation stages with our designer of our renovation project all the way to electrical inspection completion. He was able to sort out some minor challenges along the way and always with a fair cost assessment. M&D estimates were accurate and extras were pointed out through the project that added value. But once a cost estimate was provided and agreed to, they never came back. You could rely on the estimate and the work to be done.
Mike and Andre others at M&D was always accesible via phone, text and on site when required to review, inspect and discuss changes. The quality of M&D work is very good. In fact best I have seen done in my home. From pot lights plumbing, smoothing ceilings, minor structural work, dry wall repair and install, painting, hardwood flooring, new door insulation, bathroom install, tiling, we had it all done by M&D and all very good quality. A few minor mistakes that were repaired quickly and with 0 question. I do mean minor, no one is perfect, but they fixed it fast! Service and quality is their priority and they stick to it.
M&D showed up every day to do their work. This is not a crew that starts a project and leaves you high and dry for 1-2 weeks or with 1 guy working for 5 days on his own. Not a Mikey Mouse crew! The real deal. Top notch tools, and trades.
Mike and I had a schedule agreed upon before hand and they did everything they could to stick with it. Even the occasional Saturday work to keep my family move in date on track. M&D team are all skilled tradesmen. They know what they are doing and I said before, very little to know errors, and VERY Clean. I would inspect my home project each night and I would always find one of their team members vacuuming up and cleaning up as much as they could collect. I love the fact they looked at my home as my family home and not a work site.
I check a number of quotes from other contractors and some were very expensive and some were cheaper but what sold me in dealing with Mike was his care and attention at the beginning. He pointed out things that actually ended up de-scoping work, to help us lower the risk of our project and cost. Some firms out there were willing to rip my house apart for a dollar, Mike didn’t look at the buck he could bill but our vision and plan. I knew after dealing with Mike on a first few meetings he had our interests at heart along with his business. Together we made decisions and worked though schedule changes that although minor, Mike always made sure we could make up time and we did.
My project was a complete gut of the 1st floor of my home. Everything! M&D did my flooring, gutted my kitchen, some walls were removed, installed new hardwood floors, new doors, baseboards, smoothed my ceilings, installed 36 new pot lights, prepared my kitchen for a new kitchen install (with electrical and plumbing) gutted and installed my new bathroom including tiling sanded and painted my stairs, painted ceilings, walls, did wall paper in one of my walls. They did it all. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I even called Mike up for a small item post project and he came by to help. No problem he said.
I tell people the best you can do for any home renovation project is 3 things:
1. Know your scope and plan, plan and plan again. The more you know what you want the less mystery on cost and schedule. Get a designer and a home engineer to inspect your place to remove doubts.
2. Get all your materials ahead of time. This is in the home owners control and prevents any delays due to missing materials (floors, doors, bathrooms etc..)
3. Pick a solid contractor, and hope for the best
Well I feel i was very lucky and hope was on my side. The reviews for M&D buildings are true. These guys are the real deal.
We have now done two bathrooms with M&D Buildings and they have done excellent job both times. Mike, Les and his crew are very responsive and accommodating and worked hard to make sure everything was done to our satisfaction. Very professional, good quality of work while sticking to timeline and budget. Would highly recommend them for any reno projects.
M & D Builders, Mike Messiha did an amazing job. Mike was here through out the renovations to over see the progress and deal with any set backs that may have risen.
We have been very happy with the work provided. His contractors took great care of keeping the place tidy after each days work. All the contractors were very meticulous,hard working, always on time and took pride in their work.
We would highly recommend Mike and his team without hesitation.
The worked was completed before the schedule deadline and within budget.
We had Mike do a renovation on our kitchen and loved it. So, we decided to do our bathroom and again he delivered. Despite little hiccups - as it comes with full renovation you never know what to expect - he makes it work. And now, I am loving my new bathroom.
As always Mike, thank you for the great job! Professional as always and provides what his clients wants.
Thank you again!
Mike and his team completely finished our basement including a bathroom with a custom shower, a laundry room and refinishing the stairs. The work was undertaken in a professional manner, within budget, on schedule and with constant consultation with us. We greatly appreciated the suggestions for improvement, how they kept the work area clean, the attention to detail and the minimal interruption to our daily lives. We were extremely pleased with the results and quality of work. We would highly recommend Mike and his team.
Work was completed on time in a highly effective manner. Thanks to the company's connection with local suppliers, we were able to stay within budget and still achieve the desired look. Any small glitches were immediately corrected. Just rehired them for a new project and recommended to a few friends.
We used M & D buildings for our full bathroom renovation. Mike was very responsive to any questions we had and his crew started the Reno on time and even finished early. We had no issues or surprises (price quoted was what we paid) - everything went smoothly. Mike’s his crew Adam, etc., came by before the Reno started to make sure we purchased what was needed and they went over how we wanted everything. We have two cats and they were cautious and kind around them. We are very happy with our new bathroom and the quality and detail are fantastic!
I would definitely use Mike for future projects!
We hired R&D Buildings to renovate our master bathroom and convert the bathtub area into a walk in shower. We were very pleased with the outcome and the process. Mike is a pleasure to deal with. He is very responsive, accommodating and helpful. He was in constant communication with us keeping us upraised of the process and progress as well as checking in at all decision making stages. Les and his crew were very professional, pleasure to deal with and respectful to our home and schedule. The workmanship is very very good and the process was more seamless and less disruptive than we anticipated. The price and timeline were very reasonable as well. We are very satisfied customers and asked Mike to quote us for our next reno project.
Amazing!. Started on time, finished the project early. Came every day at 7:30 AM and worked through the whole day. In the evening all work areas and hallway were left tidy, vacuumed, Front hall was even mopped when necessary. Pride in workmanship, organized, helpful. Attention to every detail, for example, where to put each pot light, how high the shower head should be, what height the light fixture, mirror, etc should go. No other renovation has ever gone so smoothly or turned out so well. Thank you Mike, Michael(s), Roman, and the rest of the crew!
We hired mike and his team to renovate our home in preparation for sale. Mike's team was great. We had them renovate 2 bathrooms, redo tile in our basement, patch our front hall tile, and repair a rotting window sill in our basement. The contractors worked long hours to make sure the job got done in less than 2 weeks and we're incredibly friendly. We have three dogs, which was a concern for us during the renovations. The contractors were amazing with the dogs, letting them out during the day, playing with them after work, and protecting them from the renovation debris. It was a huge relief to know that they weren't afraid of the dogs, and that the dogs weren't then disturbing them during the day. We have built several homes in the past and are very familiar in dealing with construction. Overall, working with mike and his team was a great experience and we would use them again for any other Reno projects we may have in the future.
This is the second project we have hired M & D Buildings for. Again, we are very pleased with the professional services and high quality of workmanship provided by this company. Our project was completed on time and within budget.
Mike is a pleasure to work with, trustworthy, and truly cares about doing the job properly.
We had M & D Buildings remove our load-bearing wall between the kitchen and dining room. They built a very strong support beam above the ceiling so there are no visible seams, allowing the entire area to be open to sunlight; they transformed a very dark, closed-in room into a bright, fluent area. Everyone who has visited our home since the renovations have commented on the excellent placement of tiles, the expert custom cabinetry, and the precise quartz countertop installation. We also had them put potlights throughout; these were installed with careful planning to maximize the look and functionality. All of the tradespeople in Mike's team are professional, courteous, and will take the time to explain what needs to be done to meet your requirements, and address any questions you might have. I highly recommend M & D Buildings.
Through the whole process Mike has been readily available to answer any questions as well as to brainstorm any ideas. We love our new kitchen.
M & D Buildings added a powder room and renovated our main bathroom and we are very pleased with their work. We now have two rooms in our 40+ year old house where the walls are plum/straight! The team that worked on our house (Michael, Mike and Roman) arrived on time every day, helped me to understand the little things I hadn’t thought of so I could make the right decision for us, were very conscientious and delivered quality workmanship – and the job was done early! It is hard to trust someone to come into your home and create your dream. We will not hesitate to get M & D Buildings to do our next renovation. Thank you to Mike, Michael, Mike and Roman.
Re-structured the kitchen in my house, very professional, cleaned up all mess and went over and above our original work. Mike was easy to work with and there timing was excellent.
We highly recommend M&D Buildings. Not only did their work meet our high expectations, it was also done on time and within budget.
After suffering a bad experience with a previous company, we were cautious about proceeding with another company. Mike put us at ease from the moment we met him. He is very professional and knowledgeable, but also very honest and dedicated, which is rare these days. He responded quickly to any concerns and/or questions, offered excellent suggestions, and came to visit the job site on a regular basis. We are so grateful to have found Mike and only wish we had found him sooner.
Mike assigned Les to complete our bathrooms project. We recognized immediately that Les takes pride in his work and expects excellence from his crew. Les was very easy to work with, drawing upon his vast knowledge and experience to help us with ideas and best solutions. Les and his crew were very professional in their interactions and cleaned up at the end of each day. The highly skilled crew was focused on customer satisfaction and ensured the job was done right.
Our main bathroom was done in less than 3 weeks, involving a complete gut, replacing the tub with a full-size glass shower, and moving the toilet to accommodate the new layout. It looks amazing. Our master ensuite was more challenging as it had a full-size tub and a very tiny shower, which we wanted expanded. It was completed in 4 weeks, much quicker than we had ever expected. This involved a complete re-design of the original layout, with a smaller tub and large shower. The result is more beautiful than we could ever have imagined. We are absolutely thrilled with this company.
We have already hired M&D Buildings to do our main floor and kitchen renovation in the new year, and will definitely hire them again for any other future work.
Mike has helped us through 4 projects in our house and the experience each time was very positive. Mike’s team is very professional, polite and the craftsmanship of their work is commendable. Each project completed on time and budget! We would hire this team for all future reno projects in our house. Highly recommended!!
Mike, Michael & his crew are nothing short of outstanding, 5 out of 5 stars! We had our entire house renovated from top to bottom and could not be happier. Mike is extremely caring, knowledgeable and professional, addressing any concerns you have immediately. If you have any questions, he is accessible at all times, always replying in a timely fashion. In addition, his pricing is more than fair given the exceptional quality of workmanship. Michael & his crew are maestros, can't say enough good things! Every nook & cranny of our home was completed in a meticulous manner, being treated as if it was their own home.
I would recommend highly without hesitation M&D builders for all your renovation/home improvement needs. Thank you so much, Mike, Michael & crew :)
All the Best,
We recently performed a complete master en-suite remodel by M&D buildings and are very happy with the end results.
From initial consultation to final inspection, it has been a great experience. We initially looked at 6 contractors and M&D was not the most expensive, nor the cheapest, but we felt like they provided the greatest value of everyone we saw. Their reviews and portfolio were the best of the bunch. Mike is very easy going which removes much of the stress from a major remodel. He was extremely responsive, responding to texts, emails and phone calls immediately.
The project was completed in 8 days, which was ahead of schedule and on budget. The team was very professional, laying down tarps and plastic over the floors and furniture. Each day ended with the team removing all tarps and vacuuming the entire site and common areas. The team arrived on time every day and worked 12 hour days. They were all very professional and address any concerns we had. The trades people are very skilled and you can tell they take pride in their work, focusing on the details to make sure everything is done right.
The end result is a gorgeous reno, which we are very happy with. I highly recommend M&D Building if you are considering a renovation. We look forward to engaging Mike and his team for our future renovations.
I have used M & D Buildings on many occasions. I have used them both for my company as well personally for renovations in my home. Our first project together was back in 2014 and I have used them many times since then. Being a repeat customer should give you an immediate hint to the type of work Mike and his team do. If they did not do good work or not leave up to my expectation, I would not continue to use them. The crew from M & D are very skilled and very professional and give some great insight as to how things should be done. The work that I had just completed in October came in right on time and right on budget; there were no surprises. The job site was left clean every evening and I also had a post-day wrap up discussion with the crew as to exactly where they were with the project.
I would highly recommend M & D Buildings to anyone that is looking for an honest, professional and competitively priced contractor.
I will definitely be using them again.
I don’t normally write reviews but I felt compelled to in this instance because finding an honest and skilled general contractor is a daunting task. I highly recommend Mike from M and D Buildings. Mike is not only a general contractor, he is a Professional Engineer with a Master’s Degree. We purchased a 1970 house that needed massive renovations. Our whole house was brought down to the studs and Mike handled everything like a true professional. The house had asbestos, mold, plumbing and electrical issues, and Mike calmly walked us through everything. He is extremely knowledgeable. He removed load bearing walls without a hitch. The renovations included the remodelling of 2 kitchens, 3 full bathrooms, laundry room, 2 sets of oak staircases, new 200 amp electrical panel, all new doors and windows, etc. I cannot stress how happy I am with Mike. You will not find a better contractor. He is reasonably priced, his contract is clear and detailed, he responds promptly to texts and calls (within seconds), and he completed our house ahead of schedule (10 weeks). I have recommended M and D Buildings to all my friends and family and I encourage you to call Mike too. Don’t hesitate! You will not be disappointed.
Excellent from Start to Finish
My wife and I recently had our laundry room renovated by M & D Builders. From the initial meeting to the final inspection, Mike and his team were true professionals. I wouldn’t hesitate, not for a second, to recommend Mike and his team to anyone looking to renovate his home.
Working with Mike from M & D Buildings was a excellent experience. Because of continuous changes in plans (on my part), we had to keep going back to the proverbial drawing board but Mike and his team were always very patient, understanding, reliable and overall, a pleasure to work with. He is also very open to suggestions, straightforward while giving many options to achieve a goal. I can't thank him enough for all his patience and hard work with our own project. I would highly recommend him to both family and friends who are requesting services.
I would HIGHLY recommend M & D Builders to anyone and everyone! We had our upstairs bathroom renovated in 4 days. This was such a huge relief after the rocky start we had with our first contractor. Suffice to say, our first reno experience ended on a good note because Mike and his team came in and saved the day! The crew was professional and skilled, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Mike was fantastic to oversee the project daily. We love our new bathroom and cannot thank M & D Builders enough for their amazing work! When it's time to reno our kitchen, we will definitely be calling on them again!
We had Mike and his team do our kitchen and renovation of main floor to make it open concept. They did an amazing job and we were so happy with the work they did. Mike was always available to talk or answer questions no matter when I messaged! There was added work that came up in our older home but Mike did his best to manage costs and they worked so hard to get us back into our home as quick as possible, even working on a long weekend. I had worried about hiring a contractor after a previous bad experience but I would recommend M&D buildings to anyone. They are trustworthy and will do their best to make sure you are satisfied.
The decision to undertake our home basement renovation required considerable thought, planning and financial resources. Hence, it was essential to secure a professional, trustworthy and reliable contractor. Mike and his team far exceeded our expectations. From the start of the project they maintained excellent daily communication, follow up and guidance. The quality of work was exceptional. Arriving on time each day, reviewing every stage of completion and promptly addressing changes along the way. They were truly committed to ensuring a positive client experience. We are very satisfied with the amazing transformation of our basement and would happily recommend Mike and his team.
As our stove and range hood not working, went to Ikea, look around and ended up purchasing the kitchen event deal. So decided to reno the whole kitchen. And with that we needed a contractor. Found M&D Builders online and with the reviews I read, I decided to go with them......and it was a good decision.
They are reliable, helpful and go above and beyond to make your kitchen functional even with last minute add ons. They are professional, hard working, friendly and polite. Really impressed with the job done....love the new kitchen.
I highly recommend M&D Builders for you renovation may it be small or large.
Looking forward on hiring them again for our next renovation in the house.
Amazing job M&D!
Great customer service, and the workers were all very friendly and dedicated to getting the job done right, while keeping me in the loop. Started very close to the time when they said they could start, and then worked continuously to get the work completed within about 4 weeks. While there were some initial problems with the painting, they immediately jumped on the issue to resolve it within 3 days and to my full satisfaction. Very easy to work with these guys, I trusted what they said and what they charged, the job was done quickly, and I love the results. I would definitely have them back to do more work.
Very positive experience. Small laundry room project. Mike M was very professional and prompt in providing a quote. The work was performed in a timely way and very well done. The crew (another Mike) was super professional, friendly with a high standard of work. Very much appreciated their courteous and professional approach. Would definitely recommend and use their services again.
We hired M&D Builders to remove and re-build a load bearing wall to widen the kitchen and entrance area. Mike and his team were honest and upfront about the project and understood what we wanted and our concerns. His team was skilled and professional, communicating with us along the way. We were pleased with the outcome and have peace of mind in the structural integrity of our home. I would recommend M&D Builders for load bearing wall projects as this is such a crucial and significant undertaking in home renovation.
We contracted M&D Builders to renovate the main floor of our house (create open concept, build & install kitchen island & cabinets, install hard wood floors including the necessary painting, plumbing & electrical) . They did an excellent job on all fronts. Here is their score card. :-
Project duration: 3 weeks (a couple of weeks ahead of schedule)
Project Manager: Mike was always polite, punctual, proficient and precise in all his dealings with us.
Renovation Team Lead: Michael was very sharp and excelled at plumbing and electrical work. He came up with the ideal solutions for us to re-route existing plumbing, duct work and electrical to give us the best possible outcome.
Renovation Team: The whole team worked well together, they did quality work. They were careful with the demolition, floor installation, dry walling and painting. They arrived on time every day and worked quietly and diligently. The paid attention to detail and made sure everything was trimmed, caulked and touched up to perfection. Parts of our family room that were not part of the renovation were carefully removed and reassembled as if it was untouched.
Kitchen Cabinets : This was sub-contracted to Lanxin Kitchen & Bath renovations who worked with us to ensure we fit all our requirements into the design. On occasion when our schedules clashed they went out of their way and met with us on a Sunday to iron out some of the details. Laura a wiz with the design software came up with the ideal design for our Kitchen and Robert and his installation team did a wonderful job assembling the cabinets in our Kitchen in record time without a scratch on our newly laid hard wood floors. They worked with the counter top guys to ensure measurements were precise and the installation went without a hitch.
I hired Mike and his team to renovate our main floor. This included removing a load bearing wall, adding insulation to the exterior walls and attic, installing floors and trim on the entire main floor, and updating the main bath. Although I had a vision of what I wanted the finished space to look like, I was very cautious with who I hired because much of the project was about what was behind the walls (structure, electrical, insulation, etc).
I am confident that hiring M&D was a good decision. I was very pleased with Mike’s ongoing communication, dedication to solving problems, that inevitably arise, and compliance with municipal regulations. With Mike’s expertise in engineering, he presented drawings/plans for the building permit as required by the city. Once the walls were exposed and he had a better look at the structure of the house, it was evident to Mike that the plans had to change. He was able to adapt the plan/design while still creating my vision for an open concept.
He and his crew were professional and pleasant. They were always willing to please and happy to listen to and address any concerns I had.
Overall, I’m very happy with the end result and will consider hiring him again when I’m ready to tackle my next renovation!
We hired Mike from M & D Builders to provide a full package of permit drawing to our commercial unit in Toronto 6 months ago. He delivered all the required architectural, mechanical and plumbing drawings on time and he also submitted it to the city and got the approvals in a timely manor.
M & D also provided a good price than other contractors to do the construction work. Mike and his team were honest, knowledgeable,timely and friendly to work with, were also extremely professional on every single details and went above and beyond what was required from them.
Thanks Mike and all trades work in our project to have it completed even before the due time.
M&D is dedicated to excellence. Mike, the owner, is professional, trustworthy and detail oriented. He set a high standard reflected by the entire team.
We contracted for a complete kitchen remodel & new hallway tiles. We were so impressed by the quality of work that we expand the renovation to include 2 bathrooms & painting throughout.
All the trades persons were top class. We were notified when work would start & they were on time! The work site was tidied up daily. All necessary liability, electrical and plumbing certificates were provided. Mike, the owner, visited the project site a number of times and answered questions promptly.
Mike, the project manager, was very proficient. He committed to the project, coming out on short notice to correct a problem (left by a different contractor) so that work could proceed as scheduled.
The renovation was done on time and within budget.
We will highly recommend M&D Buildings.
I was sadly disappointed with the level of professionalism from Mike. He undermined many things he did not know himself and assumed that we were exaggerated or we created the problems and never had a solution it was always that's the way it is. His employees are great but he lacks in people skills and being an owner. I had to fight over and over for him to come back and finish what we paid him to do and still until today things did not get finished (work was done Feb 2017) we are now in October.
In response to Mike's rebuttal:
Mike asked us to post a review once the major renovation was done. The original review, which I asked him NOT to post (but he did anyway), was written close to the end of the renovation with the intent that he would send workers to finish the last touches. Now i understand why he pestered me for the review right away. He had no intentions of completing the last touches properly. Those last touches are his interpretation of us using him for free labour.
The $500 that he gave us was because of damage done to my antique dining room table which we asked not to be used as a table for tools but it was anyway.
These are the items that were all in the contract but were never properly completed: lights under cabinets that still don't work, cracks in moulding and baseboards in my front entrance that were "fixed " but made worse, the light in my bathroom is not centered and said he couldn't fix it, my drain leaks, the new floors squeak everywhere and the mess from the sawdust I had to hire a professional cleaner to clean up my garage and front porch. I don't think these items, that should have been part of the original job I paid for, are an exaggerated request. They were part of his job.
He makes it sound like he finished everything and we used him for more labour. We just wanted the original contract completed, and completed PROPERLY.
Every time we spoke to him about these items we said we had to accept these deficiencies in the work because we were exaggerating and that was the best he could do. Are you kidding me???
In the end, his employees were outstanding! He is the problem and has no idea what it means to do a job RIGHT.
Paul wrote a positive review when the job completely finished through his wife Marilena on May 28, 2017 (attached image from this review), but it was never verified with the intention of keeping me at his leisure for free labour. If I would not pertain to his erratical requests he would post a negative review instead of posting this review when the job truly finished. He was trying to abuse the system as he knows such reviews are very important to my business.
Here is the story short and simple. We started this job on January 2017 and it was a major renovation for the main floor. Everything was moving good and we finished on time without any delays. Before the final payment he started creating tiny finishing up issues trying to hold on this money and he gave us a very hard time to pay this fund from February until may. From May on, he kept contacting me In an abusive manner for a problem which was originally not in the scope for work (Kitchen under cabinet lights),and was given a $500 compensation for distress caused by the problem.
Expecting that he will post negative review against me, I continued going to him to fix an LED issue which was not in the original contract. He asked us to buy it for him because he was not able to get it himself. I sent the guy who did the job and he fixed for him then a few weeks later he text me again complaining for the same issue. After lot's of money wasted we decided to replace the whole strip in our own expense.
A few month's later he asked us to come back again for the same thing. At this point I told him sorry we are not able to handle this request in a very detailed message saying that this was not a part of the job from the beginning, we already replaced it once, It has already been given a compensation for and what I heard from my two guys is that aggressive action towards the wire is what is creating these problems. The client went on to post a negative review and not verify the original review written when the job truly finished (Copy attached).
This individual was simply trying to use my team and I for free labour and the second I decided enough was enough he vouched for revenge. The job was finished back in February and claims by the customer saying it was not is false as you can see above. This is not a an accurate representation of how we treat customers at M&D Builders as you can see by the 80+ reviews bellow.
Thank you for taking the time to read this response.
In response to Paul's last rebuttal;
The quality of work should not be affected by opinions you have on my personality. I'm sorry our business had to end on bad terms, in spite of our disagreements I feel the company and I did the best we can. I wish you luck in the future.
M & D Buildings is the most professional and courteous company I had the pleasure of working with! Having dealt with other contractors which resulted in a disaster, I was apprehensive about hiring again. Mike is most professional and helpful, and his project manager (also Mike) was courteous, extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the renovations and offered helpful suggestions which did not throw our budget out of line! the end result was perfect! Their cleanliness, on time delivery and hardworking crew are second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone thinking of a renovation!
We renovated the main floor of our house, taking up ceramics and carpet, replacing with engineered laminate throughout. We partially opened a wall to create open concept. M & D Builders by far exceeded our expectations. As with any renovation, you come across unexpected challenges. Ours was related to plumbing and sub floor quality. We were given the best of advice and the extra work was completed without being rushed and with importance of staying within code. Quality came first. M & D ensured their part of the renovation was completed within the timeline of our kitchen installation. The crew cleaned up daily, were very accommodating, respected and trusted. Mike showed constant follow up, always asking if we were satisfied with the work being done. We had a great experience and would highly recommend M & D Builders. We will be calling them back to renovate the upper floor when the time comes. Thanks for the wonderful experience! Our house looks amazing.
The team at M&D Builders was very helpful and professional from the design stage to the finishing.
The quote was accurate and the project on budget, communication was excellent, the whole team very friendly and good.
They worked with us on the design part, and helped us a lot. They were as well very honest.
We tried many contractors for our bathroom and windows projects in the last 2 years in the Georgetown area and they are nowhere near the quality and professionalism of the M&D Builders team.
We recommend them wholeheartedly.
We hired M & D Builders earlier this year to renovate our master ensuite washroom. The job began in May and as per Mike's quote, it took 3 weeks to complete. We originally had 5 companies in to look at our project, provide their thoughts and estimates. Majority of the quotes were within the same range so price wasn't a major factor for us. My husband and I wanted to hire and work with a contractor that was knowledgeable, experienced, and reputable. In essence, we wanted a professional company so we could have a professional experience and end result and that is exactly what Mike and his team provided for us.
Mike approached our job with care and we felt very valued as clients. When Mike introduced us to his Project Lead, Michael, the professionalism continued with Michael and his team. They arrived to our home on time everyday, were professional, courteous and always left the work area and our home impeccable. Both Mike and Michael were always available if we had questions, even outside of work hours. The lines of communication were always open. Our project was estimated to be 3 weeks for completion and that was the length of time it took. In terms of project cost, it would have been exactly on budget but my husband and I upgraded two items during the reno and Mike kept to the cost for these additional items.
This was our first renovation of this size and we could not be happier with our choice of contractor. I would not hesitate to refer Mike Messiha and his company, M & D Builders, to anyone looking to complete a home project. My husband and I love our bathroom and the quality of work provided and look forward to years of enjoyment. We have already asked Mike to prepare another estimate for us for our 2nd bathroom which we would like to renovate in early 2018!
I contacted M & D Buildings because we wanted to turn part of our basement into a bedroom suite. Many of the companies that advertise themselves as basement renovators weren't interested in helping me because I didn't want a full basement reno. M & D was different. Mike came over and listened to what I wanted. Immediately I knew I was in good hands. As a professional engineer, Mike quickly assessed what we needed done and provided a very reasonable quote. His team got to work quickly and Mike provided all of the trades people required to complete our job, including a wonderful general contractor/project manager (also named Mike). They completed the work, (which consisted of dry walling, removal of popcorn ceilings, installation of pot lights, building walls and installing doors, flooring and baseboards, and painting) in a timely, courteous and professional manner. They took great care to make sure that we were happy with the progress as well as the end result. I was especially impressed when Mike came to do a final inspection once the project was complete. Although I said I was absolutely delighted with the way everything turned out, he notified me a few hours later to say that he'd like to send someone back to do some touch-ups that he had noticed needed some attention. I hadn't even asked! We were thrilled with the whole experience and I wouldn't hesitate to use M & D Buildings again, or to recommend them! An absolute pleasure from start to finish!
We contracted M&D to come in and almost completely redo our master bathroom, as well as replace the countertop in the powder room and attempt to solve some errors in the kitchen by a previous contractor who did not care to take responsibility for their work only a year ago.
M&D missed their initially given start date, but were courteous and proactive in updating us and letting us know why. Once they got started, work got completed quickly, but you wouldn't know it by the final result - everything looks flawless, and the attention to detail shows in the finished product. M&D was always communicative throughout the project, and stressed multiple times that their goal was our happiness. Both bathrooms got catapulted several decades into the present, and the kitchen floors look significantly better than they used to.
Unfortunately not everything was perfect. Besides some minor issues (which M&D sorted quickly - see their goal stated above), their countertop supplier delayed several times, eventually providing the wrong countertops before delaying once more, resulting in the correct ones finally arriving several days late and beyond the original timeline. I realize this is not M&D's fault directly; however, the partners and/or suppliers they choose to work with do reflect on them, whether it be positive or negative. My only critical feedback, then, is that M&D carefully consider the partners they choose to do business with, and more carefully manage customer expectations when it comes to issues relating to these partners.
Overall, while I don't think it's possible to ever have a "perfect" experience with a contractor, M&D came pretty close and I would certainly use them again for other projects, as well as recommend them to friends and family.
It was a pleasure to have M&D Buildings complete a deck project that required alterations & new plans. They made it very easy to understand what changes were needed in order for the project to be up code & the time completion of the work needed. Everyone who worked on the project were professional & very knowledgeable. I am extremely pleased with the work done, the time frame of completion & the end result....it looks great & I'm very happy to have a space that was built with care & pride in the work put in.
We had outstanding workers renovate our main floor. They were professional, clean, knowledgeable and reliable. M & D provided and insisted on constant communication and feedback throughout the whole process. We had plumbing moved, walls removed and support beams altered. We then had mouldings, floors, pot lights put in. Popcorn ceiling were removed, and a new staircase was put in. We would highly recommend Mike, Roman and their crew. The basic work was incredible! Our only disappointment was with finishing touches and a lack of attention to detail. However, we would recommend M & D for your renos.
Mike and his guys were great. Very good pricing. Job was completed within time frame provided. Mike was always very good and prompt in answering and questions I had. My kitchen and bathroom look spectacular! Will definitely hire Mike again for our next project.
We hired M & D Buildings(Mike) to re-build the Master Bathroom (Complete Renovation).. Mike has done work on our home twice before- first time being the bookshelf on the family room and 2nd project was complete renovation of 2nd bathroom.
The reason we went again with Mike is very simple. We look for quality work without any compromise on workmanship. Each time Mike and his crew has passed this test with flying colors.
The 2nd reason we go with Mike is there is no price escalation. What ever is quoted for the Statement of Work, the price does not change.
You can look for my previous review and pictures posted August 20, 2016.
If you are looking for someone who can provide high quality work, earn your trust and is honest, then Mike is your guy. I will highly recommend Mike and M & D Buildings for any home renovation work.
I am very happy with the work that Mike and his crew did on my bathroom. The quality workmanship on the tile installation was fantastic. They did the job within the timeline which was most appreciated!! Mike is patient, easy to contact and promptly return phone calls or via email. I would highly recommend M & D Buildings for any home renovation and would definitely use them for any future home renovations.
We hired M & D Builders to complete a main level renovation. They prepared our main level so we could have another company install new kitchen cabinets. Like they promised, the space was ready in 2 weeks for the kitchen install. Michael and his crew were punctual, courteous, hard working, professional and highly skilled. They always left the house clean and tidy, keeping us up to date on the progress of the project.
Mike worked well with our kitchen designer to help solve some unforeseen problems along the way. Mike was always available to answer any questions we had and accommodated all of our design needs and requests. Overall, the project was completed within the expected time lines, and we are very pleased with the results.
Mike and his team is punctual and extremely professional. They are skilled at what they do. We are lucky to have M&D completed our master in-suite bathroom. Mike listens to our opinion and needs and make great suggestions and effort to make it come true. The project involves a lot of plumbing work and change of layout but everything was completed timely with no hassle. They brought protections for furniture, floor & stairs, and took trash away after project was complete. Communication with Mike is easy and worry-free. We highly recommend Mike and his team for all home renovation projects.
I was looking to get my basement renovated last month, it was my luck that I found Mike from M&D Buildings. I moved to Canada less than half a year, so I have no experience on renovation and who to hire. Mike and his crew did a great job at a good price. My basement is small, and I didn't have a big budget, but Mike worked with me and my wallet. Mike and his expertise provided me a great suggestions about the layout, the color, the heating, the lights, the stairs, etc. The work they had done was also great quality! Every person on his team had more then 10 years of expierence. They were very professional and every detail was handled carefully. Now I have a lovely and warm basement.
Thanks Mike, Thanks M&D Buildings!
I can not express the appreciation and amazing job provided by M & D Building!! When I began my search for contractors for our home we had brought in 5 different ones. In the end I decided with M & D and I'm so happy that I did!!! Mike and his Team were the absolute best! They work hard everyday, clean up as if they weren't there. They're professionalism was beyond incredible! When they say they will be done they are done! I have heard and seen nightmares of contractors. With M & D it's the complete opposite! Not only will YOU see it, my neighbours saw it my relatives and friends saw it. They gave me a 3-4 week timeline and finished in 15 days!! Unreal! This is the type of contractors you dream of! There work is amazing. We are extremely happy and love everything in our new kitchen and on our main floor. I MOST definitely would recommend them to anyone and everyone! Already started. Thanks Mike! Thanks to your Amazing hard workers!
Thanks M&D Building. :)
I cannot say enough about how great Mike and his company have been! They were always on time, cleaned up after each day and got the job done beautifully and in the time promised. Their craftsmanship was stunning and of extremely high quality. Anytime there was a question or issue, they resolved it. Every detail of our bathroom is exquisitely finished!
Thank you so much to an amazing team of contractors! We could not recommend them more highly.
There is nothing but good things to say about M&D builders. From the first contact, to completion of our work, it was easy, efficient and exactly as laid out and expected. The craftsmanship and professionalism from the contractors working with Mike are top notch. Mike was available to answer every question we had, by phone or text, and he never made us feel like we were a bother or an issue to deal with. Our kitchen was entirely gutted and replaced in the exact time frame Mike quoted us. The work was done cleanly, and without any issue. He is fair, and highly skilled. We highly recommend Mike and M&D builders.
Mike and team were very friendly and awesome to work with and have provided great service and work in finishing work with our kitchen and washroom renovations.
We highly recommend to anyone!
This is the 2nd time we hired Mike based on the very pleasant experience we had during the work he did three years ago. The reason we went again with Mike was Honesty, Cleanliness, Quality and Price(in that order). For us having an honest conversation is the most important aspect of getting any work done. Mike is one of the very few general contractors who are honest and trustworthy. We never had any issues with price escalations or un-intended changes from Mike or his crew. After each day the crew would clean the surrounding area clean and would not leave tools and equipment un-attended. The pictures I will attach will tell on its own as pictures tell better story than words.(Please note that these pictures are taken on cell phone and I am not a professional photographer) Quality work do come at a price. But the price quoted by Mike is very reasonable compared to the quality of work the crew does.
We are very happy with the outcome and Mike will sure get call soon for more work. For any one who is looking to hire a general contractor for anything house related, I will highly recommend Mike.
M&D Buildings did an unbelievable job transforming my disgusting, dingy, unfinished basement and laundry room into a bright, well-planned space which added incredible value to my home. No one can believe it is the same space! Mike's team found economical and appealing solutions to work with the existing structure of the space. They were flexible and incorporated our needs and requests into a design that maximized the usefulness of each area. The project was never delayed by long gaps in work completion: his crew worked hard until the job was done. Most importantly, the crew takes obvious pride in their work: there were no cut corners or cheap solutions simply to make their job easier. The finished result was clean, professional, practical and most of all beautiful. It was truly a pleasure to have all of Mike's staff in my home and I would highly recommend M&D Buildings to anyone.
I highly recommend this team. The crew showed up on time every single day and the workmanship is top class. Hire them and you won't regret. Excellent service and quality.
M & D Buildings far surpassed our expectations. We had a flood and needed to replace our kitchen, so we decided to re-model. We went with Mike and M&D Buildings mainly due to his engineering background because we wanted to remove a wall. Mike turned my vision into my dream kitchen and in a very short period of time. Our first meeting, Mike brought his entire crew to accurately assess the job, which already impressed me because other companies sent each trades worker separately to assess their respective jobs, which took up a lot of our time.
Mike very clearly communicated every aspect of the job and followed through. The entire job was completed in 3 weeks.
The scope of the job:
Kitchen reno - wall removed, kitchen completely gutted and rebuilt - double the size, pot lights
Main floor - popcorn ceiling smoothed and painted, all walls painted
Upstairs - hallway carpet was replaced with hardwood, minor repairs in hallway and bathroom due to flood
The quality of the work is fantastic, Mike stayed on budget and timeline (with the exception of a couple days because the kitchen cabinets were delayed), and his crew were very clean and respectful.
We couldn't be happier with the process and the end result (Before and after pictures below). We were consulted and informed the entire process.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike and his crew for any job. I've already referred a few people to M & D Buildings. Mike even went above and beyond by coming to the bank with us to deposit the insurance cheque because our insurance company put his name on it as well and the bank was giving us a really hard time. He also continued to check in with us to make sure that the insurance cheque was going through and was there anything else he could do to help. This was long after the job had been completed and they had already been paid by us. Mike was just worried about us getting reimbursed from the insurance company, which really speaks to his character.
Thanks again Mike for such a painless experience and a beautiful kitchen! I won't hesitate to call you if I have other renovations in the future!
Fantastic. I wish I had found M & D buildings years ago. Michael and Michael are the best.
My job was not easy as it consisted of a major reconstruction and renovation. Here is what makes them the best:
1. They were easy to contact and communicate with.
2. Their quote was the best. Other companies quoted 50 to 100 % more
3. They came several times to go over all the details and made sure they knew exactly what was needed.
4. They said the job would be done in a week and it was. Whereas other companies quoted 3 weeks to a month .
5. They did lots of details that I did not consider .
6. The reconstruction looks better than the original
7. The bathroom renovation has had many compliments
8. They made time to come back and finish work that was dependent on other companies delivery.
I have recommended them to many friends and colleagues.
Thanks very much
Mike and his team from M&D have assisted us with several renovations in our Mississauga office. They have been able to work around our employees with a minimum of disruption, completed the jobs on time and on budget and with excellent quality.
We would definitely hire M&D again!
We have been very happy with the work done by Mike and his team. The job was done on schedule and on agreed on price.
We had asked for a bathroom to be redone. This involved removing an old bathroom enclosure, removing drywall (rotted due to water damage) and building a stand-up shower.
Mike's team removed the drywall and noted rotting behind the drywall to the insulation, the team replaced the insulation, replaced the drywall with cement board. We had some problems with floor tiles- the tiles we bought were bowed- despite this, the team was able to finish the job on time. Mike also has experience doing this work, so was able to give us design suggestion during the renovation.
Note photos below.
I liked quality of workmanship, flexibility, well organized and completion of work deadline.
I would like to highly recommend M & D Buildings. Mike and his team have completely renovated my kitchen to my present dream kitchen. He seemed to be very honest, professional and understanding of what I wanted done since first met to discuss the project. In the meantime, I had other contractors come in and none of them satisfied me with their plans and suggestions.
Mike has proven to be an excellent choice. I have been more than satisfied with his work – He has done a major work in my kitchen, including removal of the load bearing wall between the kitchen and dining room, design and custom made my new kitchen cabinets through his kitchen designer vendor, new floors, electrical,…….almost everything included in the kitchen. I have to also mention that everyone associated with this company was professional and courteous at all times.
I would definitely use this company again and recommend them to my family and friends!
We hired Mike few years ago to produce some drawings to our commercial facility in Brampton, and we were really impressed from his professionalism.
Few months ago, we decided to upgrade our main office by adding some more closed offices & two washrooms as a result of the company expansion. We hired Mike again to perform this job, and he exceeds our positive expectation as usual. He started the project on as agreed, was available onsite listing with patience to all the changes that we made through out the project was in process. He was also available and responding in a quite quickly manner through the text messages and emails. All the staff are very happy with the final products and the good experience that we received from him and his amazing crew once again. Thanks Mike and look forward to work with you again and again in the near future.
Mike and his team did a great job with finishing our basement.
They are open to suggestions and come up with great ideas themselves
Punctual and quick with their work
Clean and non intrusive.
Out of three contractors on the internet I called, Mike was the only one that replied and came to assess the job. He promptly sent an estimate and a starting date. The workers showed up on that exact date and worked every day, completing the job in less time than quoted. They left the house very clean.
Mike and Team installed the LVL beam as we required opening up the wall between kitchen and family room. Mike and his team member came in and did the assessment. We discussed together the options for the requirement. Mike sent out the quote after our first meeting. His team installed the beam within a day as planned and discussed. The communication with him and his team was clear. I would recommend Mike for similar work without hesitation.
Mike's team installed both laminate and tile throughout our home. They were very professional and Mike and his crew were always available to answer any questions and provided very valuable feedback and suggestions. They worked hard to keep us on budget and schedule. Our Floors look amazing and add such an amazing impact to our home.
Earlier this year, we had our 3rd positive renovation experience with M&D Buildings. Over the past 5 yrs, we have done reno's ranging from major to minor and each time, M&D has been punctual, efficient and professional. This latest including removal of oven vents, new venting and electrical work related to new light fixtures. As usual Mike's team was always on time, did the job well within their estimated timeline and well within his estimated price. When a month later we found one of the fixtures to be defective, Mike contacted me numerous times to ensure he got someone there to address the problem whenever it was convenient for us. This commitment to customer service and delivering as promised is stellar. Without hesitation, I gladly recommend M&D Buildings whenever I am asked if I know of any good contractors.
Mike and hi screw from M & D Buildings were professional and provided very good work at a reasonable price. The quality of work done is top notch and 3 months in I have no issues. We were in a pinch for the work to be done quickly as we were moving into a new warehouse and needed the office done right away. Mike and his crew worked diligently to make this happen and meet our deadline.
Thank you Mike and crew for your great work.
Mike and his crew did a great job. Answered all questions and stayed active in communicating. Went through the whole project to ensure everything was done correctly. The workers brought up any concern with the install to make sure i was aware. Would hire again.
I contacted M&D Buildings to renovate my small, dated 3-piece bathroom. From the initial consultation, quoting and scheduling the work, through to completion of the job, Mike was excellent. His quoting process is very professional and I felt the price quoted was very fair for the scope of the work. He was communicative and professional and I felt our project was well-managed. His team, especially Michael, were excellent to work with. They completed high quality work while still managing to work quickly (picture below was taken while the reno was in-progress). They were so respective of our home and always left the job site tidy at the end of the day. Since completion of the bathroom, I have received many compliments on Michael's tile work which came out beautifully.
Even though our bathroom was small, there were a few small issues - either the fault of the previous owner or because of the materials I had selected. In all cases Mike and Michael worked with us to make sure that in the end we got the bathroom that we wanted. I look forward to working with them on future reno jobs in our home.
I had received three quotes from three different contractors and selected M. D. Builders for three reasons, ability to understand the problem and providing the right solution, cost and confidence.
The walls were load bearing, had duct work, electrical and plumbing inside it making it quite a challenge to remove.
After signing the contract, Mike took on the full responsibility to coordinate workers, the materials required and aligning his schedule to meet my needs.
The workers were all very polite, respectful, punctual, dedicated to the work and delivering quality that met my expectations. They even fixed other walls that was previously damaged without charging extra - they went the extra mile to ensure my satisfaction.
The work itself was delivered on time as promised and all loose end tied to my satisfaction.
I will hire M.D Builders again and I recommend them to anyone wishing to renovate their homes stress free.
We had M&D in for a major reno, which included floors, demolition, electrical, plumbing, drywall and painting. Mike was good to deal with, very professional, kept all his appointments and followed up on everything in a timely fashion, and his prices were reasonable.
Our job included some unexpected issues, which were well accommodated. Mikal and his crew arrived everyday on time, worked fast and the workmanship was excellent, and the site was kept tidy everyday.
Would definitely use M&D again.
The entire experience with Mike was great! He came as scheduled to give a quote and submitted it exactly when he promised. The quote was fair and we quickly went to work. There were some minor issues with our neighbors regarding the noise caused by the construction, and so Mike quickly accommodated them by conducting the renovation during their recommended schedule. Communication was always open and he kept me updated all the way through. His workers were cordial and efficient and cleaned the store nicely after renovations were complete. Mike was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him!
We contacted Mike to remove a wall between our kitchen and family room. As soon as we met Mike, we new he was the right person for the job. He responded quickly with immediate on site visits; his visits included not only himself, but also members from his crew in order to completely assess the situation. Within a day or two we negotiated a price, which I felt was very competitive and few days after that the work began. The crew that Mike has are excellent. They showed up on time, worked extremely hard and cleaned up their work area everyday before they left. The quality of their work was very impressive (and I'm very picky) and they finished right on schedule. We were so impressed with the work they had done, that we immediately hired them to carry on with further renovations in our newly opened space. One thing that really impressed us was that after the work was done and full payment made we contacted Mike on a couple of things that we felt needed a little touch up. Mike responded right away and had his guys come back address those items immediately. This says a lot about Mike that he is not going to run away once payment has been made. He stands behind his work and it is very clear that he wants his business to thrive and the best way to achieve that is by treating the customer right, gaining their trust and allowing them to share their positive experience. I will use Mike again and would 100% refer Mike to any friend or family.
Mike and his team were very efficient. They arrived exactly when they said they would and completed the job quickly and professionally. They gave me multiple options for my renovations without ever pressuring me or trying to upsell me on more work. I will definitely be using their services again in the near future.
M&D Buildings renovated our master bath shower. They were punctual, courteous, cleaned up every day, stayed on budget, and most importantly they were true professionals who did great job. We are extremely happy with the great work they did on the shower renovation and we would definitely recommend this team to others!!
I had hired Mike Messiah to demolish 15 feet of concrete block and to install a structural beam in my basement. The job was done quickly and to my satisfaction and my experience with Mike and his team were good. The work performed was done to agreed upon terms and after they had finished left the job site clean.
Thanks again Mike.
In the world of shady contractors M & D Buildings were true professionals and made the renovation project a worry free endeavor.
Mike's team were on time and worked to a flawless finish. Mike explained everything and laid it out in a well defined contract. The conditions and payment plan were well explained and progressed based on work done.
I would definitely use M & D Buildings again for any more renovations in the future. We used Lanxin as well for our cabinets and they were great to work with and would recommend them as well.
The best advice is know what you want and dont change it once the work starts. Happy Renovating !
Over the years and in various homes we have had the opportunity to work with a good number of contractors. We look for contractors that can work with our budget, can give us a start and end time frame for the project as well as being able to provide a comprehensive scope of work document that outlines the job in detail. After having four contractors in to provide quotes on the job we went with M & D Buildings to do the work because they met all of these expectations.
Mike, Les, Mark and the team were fantastic.
Mike was visible throughout the project followed up with progress reports as the work was underway. We felt comfortable that there would be no surprises. Each day the work area was left clean and tidy. We often work from home and had no issues with noise or interruptions.
Les and Mark provided us with a schedule regarding the plan for the work that day and when we could expect other team members that we may not have met yet. They started and finished each day as scheduled and provided us with many opportunities to ask questions or provide feedback as needed.
Les and Mark uncovered a hole in the outside wall in our basement. They came to us right away and we were able to resolve the issue together. Because of the care in their work they saved my family from a foundation issue in the future. We were able to catch the problem and fix it quickly. We were able to take preventative measures that saved us money and future disruption thanks to Mike and his team.
The room itself is finished beautifully and is exactly what we wanted. We will be calling M&D Buildings for any future renovations we have in our home.
November of 2013 I started the process of remolding my Parent's basement: a walk out and a finished basement. I contacted about 6-7 contractors-most were eager to complete the basement, but most were hesitant when it came to the walk-out. Mike Messiha has an engineer degree, hence I felt comfortable contracting him to do the walk out. (Project 1) Mike's team did an amazing walk-out. In addition I contracted Mike to finish up our laundry room and remolding our upstairs bathroom. (Project 2) Overall we are happy with M and D Buildings- Concerns are addressed and Mike is accessible via email or text message. We did go over budget but this was due to upgrades. Thanks Mike for making our walk out possible!
Mike's team were pretty quick and the end result was exactly like I imagined it. There are always a few bumps along the way but the end result was something that we are very happy with. In any project that you engage in, the best thing to do is to really know what the outcome you desire should be, and be sure to include everything in the initial contract to ensure that you cover everything, but, be confident that Mike's team is competent in what they do.
We were very satisfied with Mike and his team from M & D Buildings. The Structural Engineer worked with us to come up with a cost effective way of opening up our basement and worked closely with us to obtain the City permits. Once the construction started Mikeâ€™s team always showed up on time, work was completed on schedule and every day his team did an excellent job cleaning up. The City inspector was very satisfied when the end results. I would be very happy to have Mike and his team help us with our next renovation project.
I am extremely pleased with Mike and his team from M & D Buildings. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable from the beginning of the project to the end. The results were amazing. The finish and attention to detail was remarkable. I wasn't sure how the transition was going to look after the renovation and to my amazement, it surpassed my expectations. Before I contracted M & D, I had other quotes from other providers and M & D offered the best price, unquestionable confidence and professional team. I would encourage anyone looking for a renovation to definitely call Mike from M & D to see what they can do for you.
Mike and his team worked with me to determine the right approach for my project and provided options that allowed me to stay within my budget.
The 2 individuals that completed the work were friendly and competent. The cleanup results exceeded my expectations.
I was very pleased with the work they did and the overall results exceeded my expectations.
Mike Messiha is an honest,great to work with,exceptional to his craft and eager to complete his work in a timely manner.From the initial consultation to the final details of construction,Mike delivered a superior product, satisfying us beyond our expectations.Mike and his team,being on time and working constantly at the job,even after hours to research or secure materials, is an additional attribute to an already focused contractor.By the time basement was completed,we are extremely pleased with the work he did and will call him again without hesitation.We will surely tell others about Mike and our beautiful basement.
