This contractor is polite and courteous. There are several aspects of the renovation that he did well. However in several instances he did significantly unacceptable work due to what I think was inexperience and lack of knowledge in certain skills despite his claiming to have many years of experience. This included tiling and laying of strand woven bamboo hardwood floor. The hardwood floor has failed an inspection by industry standards due to failure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations.. The partially installed tile floor had to be removed by him and replaced by a professional tile setter as the tiles were not level with each other and some tiles were not adhering to the subfloor with the mortar he used. He also built one wall several inches shorter than the plans called for without consulting the cabinet maker, necessitating a reconfiguration of a kitchen cabinet. He did not consult with me about shelving and installed cupboard shelves that are so narrow as to be impractical for use in linen cupboards. He left work unfinished and had to be reminded to complete some projects. For instance he filled nail holes in transition strips but neglected to refinish the strips so the patched holes looked out of place with the rest of the strip and he did not communicate that he intended to finish the strips. He had to be asked days later to provide the material for the strip to be finished. He has been unwilling to admit responsibility for many of his errors or omissions.

All of our plans that we have done have been designed for the lot that they are on. Sometimes we start fresh: others are modificatios. This is done in order to create a 'Home" from a house plan. Disabled access, flowing plans, and ones with lots of storage and conveniences make the difference.
We have been building in the Parksville/Qualicum area since 1997. From 600 sq ft commercial, 3800 sq ft customs,many designs of spec homes and luxury waterfront cottages, we are there from digging to final inspection. the critical touches are most important and we are there for you.
With todays homes being smaller, the garage design and size is critical. Too many people are downsizing and therefore storage units are in abundance. a properly sized and planned garage can satisfy all of your workshop/storage needs.
Additions are sometimes more complex than one perceives. Ground drainage, where do the services come into the home, what is required in the addition, the profile to "hide the fact" that it is an addition: siding and roofing matches: this is where we can design the addition that is right for you.
We specialize in helping you trnsform your house plan into 'Your Dream Home Plan". It doesn't take much but ideas from the start are a lot more cost effective than adding later on. There are lots of ideas that the normal production builder doesn't have time for, but with Meadowood, you're #1.
We have done additions, renovations, and re-roofing of mobile homes in the past. Most mobiles require a special application to the roof. The majority of roofers, are neither experienced of insured for special applications. The roofer that we use for this application is very experienced in the type.
Additional property buildings can enhance the value of your property while satisfying your needs. Building the right building is the key to this in terms of usability, varied function, and incorporating a design that is conducive to what you have. Some areas restrict the type of outbuilding.
During the course of building many units, we have installed with our own crew vinly, hardiplank and cedar siding. If stucco is what you need, we can call upon one of our associate tradespeople to do the job. He brings with him years of experience and is held in the highest regard.
We consider the foundation to be the the most important part of construction. That is why our framing crews have experience in this aspect of construction. Quite often, if the foundation crew is not as fussy as the framers, problems can occur during the framing process.
For the majority of our projects we have had our own crew install the flooring. We have the tools and the experince from doing many homes. with laminate, We always install a premium underlay. This results in a quieter floor and more satisfaction for our clients.
Basement renovations can greatly enhance the value of your home. Rumpus rooms, additional sleeping quarters and enclosed workshops make the transformation into room that you didn't know you had. Tastefully done, the result will be value and lifestyle.
In building there are minimum codes that the Province has established. We at Meadowood build all of our homes to a standard above the minimum code. we use framers that have years of experience, and have come to rely on their accuracy and professionalism.
Meadowood homes has carpenters for all of your construction needs. whether it is an addition, deck, outbuilding, or your dreamhome, we have the trades available. One of our carpenter crews has over 50 years experience between two of them.
For large or small jobs we have the team and the equipment to do it. for larger projest, we can call upon qualified and experience tradespeople who will do the work to the standards that we set.
Land preparation is the key to any project. Proper elevations, level building surface, and in some cases proper compaction of the subgrade is most essential.
