I hired Marr-Jess Construction to "finish out" my double attached Garage. This work included insulation, drywall, carpentry, painting, lighting, garage door replacement, cabinet installation, and some electrical work. I chose to get a quote from them based on the favourable reviews on this site. John S. responded to my inquiry right away, and we met with him to discuss the scope. John had a detailed quote emailed to me within the week, and also provided a schedule that seemed very acceptable to us. As we live in Winnipeg, we understand that the construction season (for work in a garage) is quite limited, and that virtually all contractors like Marr-Jess are quite busy during the summer. When John discussed the schedule with us, he was very open and honest about sequencing the trades and coordinating their activities.
Throughout the process, John would text me to let me know what would be happening, so we could plan accordingly. This type of communication is extremely important as there are always issues or changes that need to be discussed. John was extremely professional about the way he handled the job, and we couldn't be happier with the results.
Value for the money is always important (I'm born and raised in Winnipeg) and we felt that Marr-Jess gave us a fair price for what we received.
All things considered, we feel that Marr-Jess did an excellent job, for a fair price, and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy renovation contractor. Our thanks to John S. for all his professionalism.
I hired Mar-Jess in August 2016 to renovate my laundry / furnace room and to replace the main galvanized water supply line with modern PEX. The work included framing, insulating, drywall installation and finishing, painting, plumbing to install a laundry tub and replace the old galvanized line, and installation of a new dryer vent.
My experience with John and his crew from Mar-Jess was all positive. The price was very reasonable. They ensured that I understood the building code requirements prior to finalizing any important decisions on the project. They completed the work as required. They did quality work on all stages of the project. Once they started they did the work in a timely manner. And, they kept the job site as clean as possible by using covers and room dividers. They did a final cleanup at the completion of the job.
Several things about my experience with Mar-Jess most impressed me. First, the concrete around the floor drain had been flaking for several years. Without asking, John fixed this concrete using quick set before they painted the floor. This fixed a problem that I had been having for some time with that area. Second, when they were finished the job, John left the cans of unused paint for me for future use. (Most contractors will not do that.) Finally, they were sensitive to any concerns that I had with the outcome of the job. In particular, the back door of the house was sticking after the work was completed due to all of the supplies that had been carried through it. John and his crew made sure that they adjusted the door to fix this before they left.
The only complaint I would have is that they were about a month late starting. I suspect that this issue, which was minor for me, was the result of bad weather on a previous job. Overall I was very happy with the work that Mar-Jess Construction did for me and would definitely recommend them for other homeowners.
My Mom moved into a nursing home and her house was outdated and in need of a reno. I contacted John at Mar-Jess and he came over right away to give me a quote on the upgrade. We needed new flooring, some paint, a bathroom total gut and redo. The quote was right in the ballpark I was thinking. John and his crew got to work on the project quickly. They are very professional and I never had any worries. They updated me often on the progress and about any decisions that need to be made. The work was excellent !! I am thinking of doing a couple more projects and would absolutely get John to do more work for me in the future.
I'm so happy with the high quality work and excellent customer service that went into the creation of my new bathroom. I appreciate the way you created a very cost effective yet timeless and very modern finish. You are a Very trustworthy contractor and I would high recommend you.
Thank you to John and his team for the fabulous job done!
