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.
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.
Really outstanding. I do not have enough words to praise the work M & D Buildings have done. We contacted over 10 general contractors to give a estimate on the built in cabinets and book self around fireplace on the main floor family room and basement family room/ media room. Out of these 10 we shortlisted three. The reason we selected M & D building was Mr. Mike Messiha was very honest and detailed oriented in giving the estimate. Also he agreed to build the cabinets as per my design. It took us over a month to finalize the scope and lock in the details of color, selves, component box, cabinet lights etc. I really want to emphasize that this one month was time well spent and Mr. Messiha was responsive and took extra care in ensuring the design proof, material sample etc is made on a timely manner.
The price creep never happened. This was our biggest concern but Mr. Messiha ensured that what price we agreed in the contract will be the final price and there will be no price escalation.
The work was performed in a very clean manner and the installation of the cabinets was flawless.
We can say we really lucked out with Mr. Messiha but having worked with him and his associates, this was not just good luck but a good choice.
We will hire M & D Building for our next project to renovate the bathrooms in the house and after that to do the Kitchen.
Some pictures are attached.
In Oct 2010 I engaged M & D Buildings to conduct a kitchen renovation for us. This was a complex renovation as it was retro-fit in many respects. We were shifting cabinets, changing walls, refacing cabinets, adding cabinets, changing the countertops and updating the lighting. Everything had to be done in a seamless manner to integrate with the existing portions of the floor, doorways, etc.
In a matter of 5 weeks, the team not only conducted the work in a timely and high quality manner, but also took care of the very key item of securing a permit, providing architectural diagrams and structural engineering certification. When we made modifications to our plan along the way, having an architect and engineer on the project was very valuable. I cannot emphasize enough how important this was. The fact that I had an architect and engineer on the project made the city occupancy grant a breeze. Had I not obtained this, we would have had to open up the walls for an inspection of the structural work done.
Finally, when we did hit a few challenges with the cabinets and availability of space, the team worked tirelessly to make things right which speaks to how committed they are to customer satisfaction.
M & D Buildings work is excellent and very courteous.
Mike and his team were extremely friendly, hardworking, polite and showing professionalism. Mike always works within our budget to complete as much work as we could afford.
Totally satisfied with the work quality, materials used, cleaning up the premises, always on time and kept us up to date with the progress. Definitely one of the best experiences I have had with hiring a contractor.
We look forward to having this crew back for any future projects.
I want to thank the entire M & D Team for doing an awesome job and completing the project on time and with excellent quality. The attention to detail, dedication and sincerity of the team is highly appreciated. It was a pleasure working with the group and could not be more thankful for choosing the right contractor for this project. They are able to plan, implement and complete this type of project in an efficient, cost effective manner. Thanks again and I would be happy to serve as a reference to other potential clients.
Mike provided a professional and comforting meeting both during the bidding stages and during the construction. We were able to pick all of our own finishes, products and materials with very few changes to the budget. The project was done within the scope of the quote both for timing and budget. We were very pleased to be able to start to use our home 1 week earlier than we thought. Mike was always available through a variety of methods such as email, text and phone. I have included a before and after of the main floor showing the new open concept view. We would recommend M & D Buildings for other people looking for a contractor
Mike's team did a great job on my basement. They finishing the job on budget and earlier than expected. I had a couple of concerns along the way, but they were always quickly addressed. They even went the extra mile and handled some special requests I had. I am very happy with the work and would hire them again.
We hired Mike from M & D Builders to produce the full set of drawings required to our commercial building extension project in Brampton. He quickly scheduled to come over to our site to discuss the project further, he also schedule for his team to drop by the place for measurements and proceed with project. They were extremely helpful through the entire process and were able to have the drawings completed and submitted in a timely manner. Mike was always available by phone and email responding and helped me through my permit application process till we got it. I want to thank Mike and his team for the job extremely well done. I will never look for another firm and always recommend them to my colleges.
We chose Mike and his team to renovate our 1600 sqft basement for our rental property at Richmond Hill, Ontario late 2012. Mike was one of the three contractors that I reached out to for a quote, and we chose Mike because they had the most professional approach to the project and immediately we knew that we could trust him and his trades.
We can't say enough positive things about them. The crew was on time every day and extremely respectful, friendly and professional.
We were pleased to hire M & D Builders to finish our basement, they always stayed on budget and took the time to explain exactly what was been done and why. They pay attention to details of the design, and they clean up properly and finished the job on time.
I would not hesitate to call Mike for any other work around the house and I would definitely recommend their team and services to anyone.
We hired Mike and his team to build a 3 peice washroom in our basement. Mike responded to emails quickly and there were no additional surprise charges. We did choose to add a few features after that, and the price was fair and accurate. The washroom looks great and we were pleased with Mike and his team. We would hire them again for any future home renovation needs.
Pictures are a little blurry
I met with a number of contractors for our flooring project before deciding to go with Mike. Mike was prompt and professional right from the start. He was the only who followed up after the initial visit and I knew he would be the right person for the job. His trades people always showed up when they said the would and informed me if they were going to be delayed. They worked quickly and efficiently, without compromising on the work. And they cleaned up after themselves. Redoing the floors in a fully furnished condo can be a hassel but they got it done with no problems! In the end, the project was completed on time and on budget and I couldn't have asked for better results. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Mike and his trades people and I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone. I know who to call for my next project. I look forward to working with you again Mike!
We hired Mike Messihah to build a new washroom in the basement ( shower, sink and toilet ). After interviewing a number of contractors Mike came out as the winner due to his professional approach and his clear communication. His prices were very reasonable and he took the time to prepare a detailed estimate for the work. . We were very impressed by his workmanship and would definitely recommend and use M & D Buildings again. Also the two workers who did the job, Michael and Danie,l were
very pleasant and polite and have confidence of what they are doing.

Kim and I are extremely happy with the work Michael has done in our kitchen. The complete remodel of our kitchen was a very large job, we were very happy Michael was the contractor doing it. I would definitely recommend him to any of my family members and friends.
We contracted M&D Buildings to complete a renovation of our ensuite bathroom in March 2012, and could not be happier with the results.
Mike was punctual and professional right from the initial contact and quote process, which immediately set him apart from the competition we encountered. The bathroom project was a complete gut-and-replace and the project was completed on-time and on-budget. The tile work completed by Eugene is exceptional and several grades above the original work.
The final product is exactly what we envisioned and wanted, and everyone that we've shown the bathroom off to thus far has been impressed. I wouldn't hesistate to recommend M&D Buildings, and would certainly look to Mike again for any future projects we need completed. Thanks again to Mike and his team for restoring and building upon the value of our condo and delivering the ensuite we desired.
My project involved adding an extension to my house in Toronto on May 2010. We had a tight time schedule to complete this project from drawings, which had been done by M & D Builders as well, till the project to be completed, and Mike was really very helpful to reach our time schedule goal. From the beginning of the project, Mike showed the knowledge, confidence and respect to my needs that I was looking for when I was searching for the right contractor.
I want to spread the word about my experience with Mike from M & D Buildings Contractors.
Our experience with the M & D Builders has been a unique and fantastic one. From the initial interview to the final touch up they have impressed us with their friendly and professional manner. Each of the trades working in our house was well-trained, extremely polite and very helpful. It has been a great pleasure working with them - they always approached the project as if it was their own property. The suggestions they give are very helpful, and choices on materials are excellent. When we discovered some unexpected complications, they always managed to find nice workarounds that were more than satisfactory, while without going over the budget. I will definitely contract Mike for other jobs in close future.
This was the first time I worked with M & D Buildings, and it will not be my last if I need work done again. They were knowledgeable, accommodating, and fair with pricing, professional and had great ideas about how to tackle the challenges we faced. I had received 10 quotes in total, prior to hiring Mike, and I found them to be fair and honest and easy to talk to. M & D stayed on budget, as this was a factor. They were there everyday, working hard. Mr. Messiha was very easy to get a hold of, and all my calls were returned very quickly. Anything I asked to be redone, touched up, was done without any hesitation at all. I would highly recommend his company.
We hired Mike and his "team" to renovate our home, and as the communication started out well it slowly declined as the project continued. We brought up concerns with our dry walling, cleanliness of the house after trades, and his overall supervision of the project - everything was dismissed. The house was left a complete mess time and time again - drywall drippings on my carpet, scrap pieces of wood all over the house, nothing was ever swept and a common lack of concern for existing structure and finishings that were being left untouched. Its been months since the renovation and I now have walls that are cracking because of the poor workmanship. In addition, I found the overall supervision of the work site to be very poor. There was no communication between trades and if my husband had not been present at some of the jobs we would have been left with some very questionable finishings - more specifically the height of our island (bar height). I would not recommend this contractor to anyone.
Lindsay has hired our company to do some renovation work at their house, in Oakville last summer. Everything was going well until the last payment was due. Mrs. Batstone tried to create some complications,she had some concerns considering the final payment. However because she had no valid reason at the end, Mrs. Batstone paid in full. Mrs. Batstone created an issue herself resulting in her unhappiness, our work was excellent thanks for understanding.
My wife and I had Mike and his team complete a few tasks.
- Widen load bearing wall (rough in).
- Install door to garage through cement blocks.
- Install proper ventilation in cellar
- Install proper door in cellar (rough in).
- Have a structural engineer assess my floor deflection and structure.
All items were completed to my liking in a timely manor and at a reasonable price. When i need more work completed i will be looking to hire Mike and his team again. For references email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have been working with M & D Builders and directly with Mike Messiha, as a collaborative effort of designer and project-manager / general contractor on a number of projects varying in scope, budget, complexity, and schedules. Recently Mike did the permits and the construction of a major additional to our house, a project that involved underpinning approx. 1,500 sq ft section, before starting the additional new rooms we wanted to add to the house, and Mike and his team did a great job. I am proud to say that the services, the expedience, the professionalism, and the craftsmanship that M & D Builders provides to the clients are really amazing servicesâ€¦.
We hired Mike Messiha from "M & D Buildings" to do a very extensive home renovation recently and were very pleased with their performance. They communicated effectively with us from the beginning plans until the final touches. We were very impressed with the suggestions, layout, design & building permits, time and budget. The people at M & D Buildings were very professional and their attention to detail was excellent. We had shopped around and they came through with the best price and also important to mention was the fact that Mike always tried his best to save us money. He is an honest and wonderful man to work with. We are so happy with our house renovation and would hire them for our next projects!
We hired Mike to do the drawings for an addition we had built in our house in Oakville. We found Mike a pleasure to work with and very thoughtful and professional. This is the second time we have used Mr. Messiha, and would highly recommend his services. I would highly recommend him for any project.
We have used M&D Builders on several commercial projects of varying scales and complexities and we have been very satisfied with their work. They communicate very well and are pleasant and courteous. They listen well and are genuinely interested in making sure you are satisfied with the work - which is high quality. And jobs are very fairly priced - all-in-all a great contractor that I would highly recommend!
The relationship that we developed with Mike is one that we will nurture throughout the remainder of our lives. Not only is he a highly skilled Engineer but more importantly is an incredible man who can help you turn your dreams into your reality. As a real estate agent I recommend that you give him a callâ€
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation of the services provided by M & D Buildings to our major renovation project - Mississauga, ON - in design, permits & approvals stage as well as the construction stage too. As shown by your efforts, you continue to put your clientsâ€™ needs first by providing them with a high quality product in a very timely manner and at a substantial cost savings. The integrity of service that you provide is a rare commodity in todayâ€™s market. Thank you for providing the outstanding level of service that your firm offers.â€ The kind of service and savings that M & D Buildings have provided to us will keep us coming back to hire Mike Messiha for our future projects.â€
M & D were quite good, from their initial visit, to the quote, install and completion. Everything was done according to the time lines indicated in the contract and Mike was in contact to ensure that work was proceeding to our satisfaction. Their professional conduct and diligent workers were a refreshing change to a landscape that has, otherwise, not been known for its professionalism.
I am very pleased to write a comment about this contractor on the work he did in my home, 2009. (5535 Waterwind Cres., Mississauga, ON, L5M 0G4) His work was excellent in all areas-renovation, addition and electrical. His price was very reasonable compare to two other contractors whom I had the quote. He and his workers finished the job on time as promised. They removed all the resdue and kept the place clean and tidy. There was no damage due to the transportation of materials in and out. I truly enjoy the beauty of his workmanship and it increased the value of my home.
I reccomend this contractor to anyone for the same job.
Dr. Abraham Philip
I contacted M & D Buildings to finish my basement this summer and was very satisfied with the process and the results. The quote provided was fair and reasonable, and all the contractors/trades brought in to do the work were very professional and qualified. Time was taken to review and understand my specific needs and requirements and the contractor was willing to work with me throughout the building process to allow me to customize things according to my specifications. This collaborative and flexible process worked out well for me, since I had very specific design requirements that needed to be modified from time to time due to various issues during the construction process, and I also wanted to purchase many of the finishing materials and fixtures myself and have them do the installation. The specific trades brought in do the specialized work (e.g. electrical, plumbing, tiling, and painting) were all experienced and courteous and easy to deal with. Throughout the entire renovation, work was done according to schedule and I was kept informed of the progress. The work was completed according to the quotation, and any changes that I requested throughout the project were addressed in a fair manner. Overall, I'm very happy with the work that was done, and would recommended M & D Buildings to family and friends for their upcoming projects.
There is not much more to say than how incredible it was to work with Mike and his team of successful workers. I was looking to hire a team to renovate my house kitchen and bathrooms, and hiring M & D Buildings was the best choice. Mike is an excellent person to deal with, very professional and extremely hard working and cares very much about his work and the final outcome of the product. I hired M & D Buildings to remove old tub surround in my main bathroom and install ceramic tile on walls, floors and ceiling. They were very prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. Mike has completed the job with excellence and I would recommend him without hesitation. My bathrooms and kitchen looks great.
Dear Mike, My wife and I would like to draw to your attention our admiration and respect of your prompt and efficient service you provided. M & D Buildings has provided their expertise of finishing my basement almost two years ago, with no issues till now. Thank you for going out of your way on a Saturday to assess our basement during the height of the rainy days and when no other contractors would even return my calls. I appreciated your patience as you answered all our questions about your proposal while I gathered information to assess and confirm to myself about what has to be done before I invested in the renovation work. I also appreciated your honesty in advising me about what works best for us that was essential and important. I believe your suggestions were the right solution for my project within my budget. You were also very professional and always kept excellent communication with me about scheduling the work; and that assured to me the accurate delivery date. All the work looked great and still looking like you just have done it. Your crew who were here were very thorough, clean and professional. I would recommend this company to anyone that needs a basement done in a professional manner and reasonable price too! Thanks Mike! Mo and Mira
I'm very pleased to have found M & D Buildings. I found them to be flexible, honest, patient, and very willing and co-operative in trying to make the situation work as best as possible - and within budget! Mike is great to talk to and is solution-focused in trouble-shooting any situations that may arise. I would only contract a company I had full confidence in, and I found Mike's communication and follow up with me a huge comfort; he does exactly what he says he is going to do - and that's confidence he earned. The next job I have to get done, my call will be to M & D Buildings.
Mike from M & D Buildings completely retiled and replaced the dry wall around the bath tub after a few tiles had fallen off due to moisture damage. As the tiles could not be matched Mike went out of his way to find similar ones for a very reasonable price. The work was done in a professional and timely manner. All the old dry wall & broken tiles were taken away leaving a beautiful bathroom. The other bathrooms were regrouted to avoid a similar situation. The tennant took pictures and I was extremely happy with the result. I live in a different province to where the work was done and it is important to me that I can trust a contractor. I would definitely recommend Mike from M & D Buildings and would not hesitate to contact him in the future. He will give an accurate an honest assessment at a reasonable price. Please see before, during and after pictures.
