Our unique character home needed so much work, we had to seriously consider whether it would be better to sell our home, or go through a major renovation. We had heard many horror stories of renovations gone wrong, with problems, delays, and cost overruns, so we were seriously considering a move to British Columbia to avoid putting our family through renovation stress. Having spoken with numerous tradespeople and general contractors, we felt enough confidence and trust in Cory and Desmond, to further explore the idea of putting some major TLC into our home.
We are glad we did!
Cory and Desmond looked after our home as if it were their own. We even lived in our house during the entire project, along with our two kids, aged 14 and 11, from August to November, 2015. We were in good hands with Cory and Desmond. Our house was beautifully finished, on time and on budget. We are proud to recommend Macanta Design Build to anyone considering a major renovation.
Cory took the time to thoroughly understand our situation, and was a valuable resource as we considered various options. Cory's persistence in researching, combined with his experience building in Manitoba's climate, allowed us to come up with the best solutions for our situation. We felt confident as we agreed on a scope of work that addressed our needs and wants.
Our renovation included a complete gut of the stucco exterior, full electrical upgrade from knob-and-tube to 200-amp service, multiple additional circuits, garage conduit, phone lines, ethernet, hot water heater, HRV, kitchen hood fan, framing, roof, soffits, facia, eavestroughs, doors and windows, Blueskin VP100, James Hardie siding, parging, acrylic chimney stucco, drywall, painting, exterior vents, hose bib and hose reel.
Dealing with Desmond is an absolute pleasure, as he handles things with the grace and professionalism of a concierge at a 5-star resort, yet behind the scenes, he meticulously adjusts the daily work schedule to maximize productivity, minimize downtime and ensure a safe job site that is clean at the end of every day.
Cory was on-site everyday to ensure best practices were being followed by the various trades and that we were satisfied with the progress. Cory ensured no shortcuts were taken and that decisions were always made in the best interest of the home and the homeowner. We were so thankful to have Cory readily available and working hard as our advocate.
Were there problems? Indeed, there were several, and each case stood out as an advantage of hiring Macanta as a general contractor. We had an electrician who was reckless, and Desmond promptly replaced him with a different electrician whose standards are more in line with Cory and Desmond's. The subcontractor installing the siding had suddenly gone out of business, so if we had hired them on our own, we would have been stuck with lost inventory and time. Desmond simply had the siding installed by the framers, who did a better job and were much happier workers. In numerous cases, Cory and Desmond went above and beyond what was written in our contract, by reaching into their own pocket, in order to finish things as if it were their own home. We were treated like family.
Since everything went so well, we went with Cory's recommendations, and redid the kitchen with new plumbing, cabinets, counter, backsplash and appliances!
Our home has been completely transformed and we love living in it! We have had many complements from friends and neighbours. Perhaps the best part has been how smoothly the whole process went. Anyone considering a major home renovation needs to speak with Cory and Desmond of Macanta Design Build.
It was a pleasure to do business with Macanta. Cory and Desmond kept me informed throughout the process, ensuring I knew what they were doing when and what was involved both in terms of work and in terms of cost. They answered all my questions and even anticipated some of them. The subcontractors cared as much about their specialties and customer satisfaction as Cory and Desmond, making suggestions to ensure the finished product met or exceeded my expectations. After my bathroom reno, I hired Macanta for additional work at my house, which was completed with the same professionalism and thoroughness.
Thank you Melissa. You were a pleasure to work for.
