MAK Moore Ventures completed a fantastic renovation that truly enhanced the resale value of our home. The work was done according to our wishes and much more. Even when we added work that did extend the timeline and budget Gilbert was very accommodating. Gilbert kept contact with us at all times, discussing with us the progress of the renovation. Gilbert used great products to enhance the value of our home while keeping costs reasonable, and always discussed with us the reason why a product was better than what we thought, and the reason why we should use it. Gilbert was always honest in his recommendations which we truly appreciated. I would definitely recommend MAK More Ventures to anyone.
The good: the quality of work was good. The crew knew what they were doing, and did a good job. All inspections passed the first time.
The bad: it took forever. Our job required structural engineering. The sub-contracted draftsman took about 4-5 months to complete his work (which was two pages of fairly simple drawings), and didn't seem to have anything done until I started calling him directly. Engineering was a similar story - it took several months. It was 9-10 months before Gil at MAK Moore was able to give me a quote. The quote estimated 5 weeks for completion of the project. In the end, it took 15 and a half weeks - more than triple the estimated time, although the job went smoothly when they were actually here. Gil and his crew simply wouldn't show up for days/weeks at a time, with no communication about when they'd be back until I asked. On one occasion, I found out that Gil was in Hawaii on a two-week vacation - one week into the vacation when I texted him to find out where he and his crew were. We heard lots of excuses over the 14 months (start to finish) it took to get the job done, but in the end we were left feeling that he was just stringing out our job to use as "filler" in between other contracts.
In the end, the job ended up on budget. The worksite was left approximately clean most days. Due to the excessive delays, we had more damage to our lawn (which was used as storage for materials) than we would have liked. Overall, we're disappointed, and will not be calling MAK Moore for our next job.
My wife and I had an agreement upon purchase of our house that the basement was going to be my man cave and the rest of the house hers to decorate etc.
Well 7 years later I finally was able to see my dream come true. I did my due diligence and researched and spoke to several companies but all had red flags of concern for me or were priced way too high.
I selected Mak Moore Ventures as Gil went that extra step to meet with me in person and do a thorough quotation rather than just give me rushed "ballpark" numbers over the phone. I selected Gil and his crew based not only on their past projects but on those extra steps that separated his company from the others I dealt with.
Gil was extremely methodical in ensuring that what they built matched my vision. In fact they went above that and far exceeded my expectations.
For example, my basement consists of a very large gaming/media room with a wetbar. It also included a full bathroom and a home gym room. Gil brought to my attention the concept of not walling in the home gym but instead enlarging it and walling off what would become my mechanical room (Boiler/Heater etc). This easily added an extra 4 feet in the length of the room in addition to opening up the gym space and making it appear much larger than its 140sq feet.
Gil also has excellent relationships with suppliers and always ensured that each option was selected carefully and if something didn't make sense he would bring it to my attention immediately. Every aspect of the project from framing and drywall to electrical and plumbing was taken care of exactly per the statement of work he drafted.
If there was a delay due to inventory on back order etc he always communicated those ahead of time which I really appreciated.
I now have my dream man cave...600sq feet of absolute awesome! I will post some pictures that show before after if able to on this site. I will definitely contact Mak Moore Ventures for any future renovation projects and highly recommend them to anyone else looking to renovate or finish their place!
From the word go Gil and his crew were fantastic to work with. His attention to detail with his contract, budgeting and invoicing was second to none. Gil's knowledge of how do things the right way is obvious right from the start, he is a true professional and subject matter expert. He uses quality staff and quality materials to do the job. His finished product is of the highest standard and was able to deliver first class workmanship within the budget we agreed upon. I am so glad we used Gil Moore and his company to complete our renovation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend MAK Moore Ventures to anyone looking for an honest, hard working team of professionals for any sort of project. 5 out of 5 all the way.
