No actual person who's had work done by this guy would ever say he did a good job.
He's loud, over priced, full of excuses, tries to sell me CABINETS the second day of the job for my backyard. Knew something wasnt right at that point.
He quoted me 3200$ to re sod my backyard, trim a beautiful maple tree and make a few small gardens.
** PLEASE VIEW ATTCHED PHOTO**
( He says I owe him 2900$ more for his MASTER TRADES WORK.
If this is what he thinks is "master trades work" he is delusional, ignorant, incompedent and a scammer.
He has his " complications" and " runs into a problem" everyday.
All will take more time = customers money.
I am a retired Veteran wanting a nice yard to relax in and below is what I got.
He knows what he has done. Don't play baby games Marcel. I will see him in court.

Marcel is very good at talking but doesn’t necessarily walk the talk..horrible experience I had with this man. It scared the life out of me as I witnessed firsthand the ball of fire from a wall plug.
It took Marcel 4 weeks to revisit the job and I am still awaiting compensation from losses that occurred from faulty electrical wiring done by his 'electrician'.
Please don’t take his talk of having over 40 years at his job.
It is correct there was an electrical problem with one outlet which I apologised and addressed the issue immediately. I had sent in a licensed electrician back after finding out the what happened to fix the problem and we were not happy with the results. There was an agreed second electrician was sent in and the client was in charge of this electrician. The repairs were addressed and the work was still not completed as the client went on holiday as the issue was mainly resolved. I have been in constant contact with ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) for inspections since the issue was recognized. I had been dealing with the clients electrician for a long time and I am awaiting him to contact me to complete the ESA requirements. I have been in full contact with ESA. I had fully completed the original renovation job that the client had asked to do to her satisfaction. The only problem that she has had is the work that a sub trade of my company had not properly completed. My warranty still stands for 2 years as always and I'm still awaiting her electrician to connect with me when he's done as I've contacted him twice to stay involved with the job. I have done' everything ESA has asked to have done and a human error happened and it's been attended to in accordance with the law with ESA building and electrical code. Just for the record, I did not say I've been in this business for over 40 years, but I did say I've been doing this for almost 40 years. This doesn't mean that I am a good babysitter of sub trades even though and admittedly I have to keep a closer eye on sub trades.
We contacted Marcel on a Friday as we needed someone, ASAP to dig 2 trenches in our backyard for some gas lines to be installed.
Marcel was very quick to get back to me, with a quote and his availability. He was very knowledgable, professional and very nice to deal with. He and a fellow from his crew arrived at our home just after 5pm on Monday, with his equipment and got the job done is just under 3 hours.
We are very appreciative of his quick reply and a job that was very well done.
Thank you Marcel!
Hey Karen. Thank you so much for the great review. I always say. Good customers make good contractors, and that category you fit right in. I'd give you a 5 for sure. :)
Thank you so much.
Marcel was extremely helpful and courteous. He was knowledgable and had the fix done in no time!
Hey, Thank you so much Gemma. I really appreciate your comments. I honestly believe good customers can make good contractors.
