When we embarked on our home addition project, adding approximately 1500 sqft+ to the existing structure, we went in with no prior experience with a project of this size. We spoke to about 7 contractors and we narrowed that down to 3 - MG Inc being one of them. From our first meeting with Kendall and Tony, we felt they were a team that we could work with. They were clear about what we could expect and the required budget - some contractors said the things we wanted to hear and were not being realistic in terms of cost, the approach etc. In terms of budget, MG were not the cheapest and were more or less in line with the other candidates on our short list.
The project started a few weeks late due to prevailing weather conditions, but basically from day one, Marco and his crew worked tirelessly to ensure that the site was kept clean, they went to great lengths to ensure that our pool, the kitchen etc were well protected and most impotantly kept their promise that we could live through the project at home (saving us the rental expenses). Most of the sub-trades that they used for the project were a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job. The project was completed about 2 months behind schedule and that was partly due to the fact that we were late in acquiring some of the finishing materials. They were slightly over the original estimate but no major surprises. We met with Tony on a weekly basis to ensure information flowed back and forth as needed and to monitor the expenses. Overall, we are very happy with the end result - we have the desired space and look we wanted. We would definitely recommend MG Inc for any renovation, addition or new build projects.
A few things that I think gives them the competitive advantage are: 1) They never asked for a deposit up front (I did not pay a cent till after the site prep and excavation had started). They billed on a weekly/bi-weekly basis after reviewing the items that were completed during that period with us. I think this is a huge advantage with MG Inc - you often hear stories of contractors running away with your deposit or leaving projects half-way through to start on another as you have already paid the deposit, second installment etc. With MG Inc, I knew my money was safe. 2) They provide the flexibility for us to source some of the material/labour - these items are clearly identified in the statement of work at the beginning of the project. 3) MG Inc was one of the very few contractors who said that it would be possible for us to stay at home during the project - they clearly identified the conditions that we would have to be prepared for and then went above and beyond to ensure that our comfort and safety was taken care of during the project. 4) MG Inc did a great job at setting a realistic schedule and budget up front and were for the most part on track. Definitely no horror stories that we some times hear with home renovations/additions. 5) Great team of guys to work with - definitely miss the regular chats with Marco and his team.
We wish MG Inc the very best in their future endeavours.
I contacted MG Build to repair a crack in my home's foundation. Marco came and assessed the issue. The repair was completed just two days after my initial consult. I can't thank MG Build enough for their quick turn-around time and professionalism. Highly recommend!!
MG was one of the many contractors we interviewed to do a full renovation of our home, from the first meeting with Kendall through to the end of the project MG were fantastic to work with. We really appreciated how they presented their proposal to us, no hidden surprises and all very clear on what to expect along the way. Once we started the journey, we knew we had made the right decision, with no regrets at all. We were very fortunate to have the talented Phil as our PM who was extremely professional, patient, responsive and guided us through week by week of the project. Marco and his team are so skilled at what they do, and again Marco was always available when we needed him, answered our questions, addressed our concerns and helped us along the way with a lot of design decisions and guidance. We are thrilled with the final outcome and level of workmanship that went into our home. MG made us feel like we were their only clients, they built a great rapport with us and not once did we regret our decision in hiring them. I would recommend MG and would absolutely use them again if were to embark on a renovation again in the future.
Thank you to MG for making our home one of a kind!
When the time came to build an addition and re-work the floor plan of our small 1940's bungalow, we contacted a number of builders. After considering proposals, we chose M-G for the project. From our first contacts with Kendall and Tony we felt we were in capable hands. The clarity and detailed structure of their proposal was an eye opener and big deciding factor.
We approached the big day with some trepidation but from start to finish the M-G crew and coordinators handled the whole project and delivered everything according to the design and the proposal. They were professional, friendly, honest and reassuring at all stages. I can't say enough about our weekly meetings to discuss progress and pin down all the details. Marco and Neil were helpful and fair with any changes required. To our delight, the project was finished on-time and within the range of the original budget.
Overall, the experience and results were beyond our expectation. Our home looks amazing. It was a real pleasure to work with M-G and we do not hesitate to recommend them.
Kendall and Tony from MG Inc. got in touch with my wife and I after we posted our project on TrustedPros late last year (2015). We knew what we wanted, more or less, but we didn't yet have a "final" design in mind. While other contractors also responded to us, the MG guys were the only ones to really follow up. For instance, we had a few contractors visit our house but, once they realized we needed some design work done before a valid quote could be provided, they simply disappeared. MG, however, linked us up with their recommended designer (Erik Calhoun) and kept calling us to check on progress.
By the time we had a final design established in December, MG was pretty much the contractor we expected to go with. We actually shopped out the design to two other potential contractors to give us quotes, but neither of them had nearly the quality of presentation that MG had when they visited us with their proposal in January 2016. Kendall and Tony were very professional, and they clearly had Project Management down to a science. My wife and I felt so confident after their presentation that it was a "done deal". We awarded the contract in mid-January.
By mid-February the project was underway. Throughout, MG always had a project manager on-site, and they kept us informed and involved with all important decisions and discoveries along the way. As mentioned before, the Project Management was done professionally and thoroughly. We met Tony every Thursday and went over Change Requests, discussed budget and scope, and made important decisions for the next week of work. Tony became a "part of the family", and we thoroughly enjoyed his company as well as the professionalism and patience he displayed every time we met. We trusted MG with our house, and they treated it like their own.
My wife and I could not be happier with the results. The MG team left us with a beautiful new kitchen, and they even came back after the final "close-out" meetings to make little tweaks after the project was done (such as moving the pendant lights to center them above the island) at no extra cost. I can't say enough good things about the project. The experience was pleasant, professional and painless from front to end, and it was well worth the "premium" we paid to have a Project Manager onsite throughout. Thanks MG for such a great experience! We will definitely think of you guys again for future projects.
Special thanks to Tony and Neal. You guys kick butt :)
MG Build put a new back door and, subsequently a storm door, leading from my kitchen to the garden. They also replaced a double hung window in a bedroom. I was very pleased with all the work which was always done for the estimated price and in the projected time. Recently I had some issues with the storm door. Some clips for the removable glass and screen panels had popped out and were lost and the door was not closing properly. As well, I had pushed on a brace which was not meant as a door handle and it had fallen off. MG replaced the clips, tightened some loose screws (the reason for the closing issue) and put a new brace on the screen which is so strong and sturdy that now it can be used as a push-bar. All this latest work was done at no cost to me! The missing clips were tricky to locate from a manufacturer and during the time it took to obtain them Neil from MG regularly kept me apprised of the status of the search - which i found very reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend MG Build to anyone looking for any kind of work on their home.
MG completely renovated my home from roof to basement. From the first drawing to the last cleanup MG was professional competent and timely. Everything was preplanned, documented and followed precisely. We had weekly meetings and progress reports and communication was always open and honest.
Going with MG Build was the best renovation decision we have ever made.
We moved into this 20-year-old home in 2012 and it needed a lot of work to update the interior, open the walls and lay new flooring. Right after moving in, we engaged the services of an unrelated kitchen renovation company and were a month into the project when we decided to expand the scope of work to the rest of the main floor living area - to remove two walls (with a recessed beam), reroute duct work and electric, lay new hardwood flooring etc. After already having struggles with the kitchen company, we got a reference from a friend for MG Build.
From the very minute MG Build arrived at our address, we wished we had gone with them for the kitchen too. These guys are professional from top to bottom. Our entire project was published on a private project website, where input, review, pictures etc. could be shared throughout. We had regular site meetings - sit-down meetings to discuss work-to-date, wish list items, changes etc., weekly invoice changes/updates etc and unlike the kitchen contract, not a single thing was done unless it was discussed and approved with a signature.
We have recommended MG Build to everyone and we will be using them again for sure. Thanks to Neil, Marco, Kendall, Ali and the rest of the crew for a fantastic experience!
The folks at MG consistently exceeded our expectations. From the initial visit to talk about our plans in a vague sense, right through final completion and walk-through, the management, staff and contractors were exceptional. They were open and honest, diligent, on-time, proud of their work and pleasant to have around. I continue to recomment them without hesitation.
Basement Entertainment Room
My wife and I had been planning to get the basement finished for a few years. So when we were expecting our second child we decided now was the best time. Our main concern was finding a reputable company and getting fair value for the expense of the construction. We contacted four firms and selected MG Inc.. MG's bid was not the highest or the lowest but was the most detailed and comprehensive with nothing to hide. MG's terms and conditions eased our concerns as it established a working relationship with you and the contractor.
At the initial stages of the contract, we found Kendall and Ali very receptive to our needs especially with our baby on the way. This responsiveness continued during the construction period. We especially liked the weekly meetings to discuss progression and also "base camp" which was an on-line site for ourselves and Mg's team to be all on the same page of the construction.
Carlo who was the construction supervisor, lead a team of workers that were courteous and respectful. Clean ups each day showed us they were mindful they were in someone's else' house. Carlo always demonstrated a desire to do a high quality job. Not only did his workmanship shine through but he even saved us hundreds of dollars as he recommended a local tile shop for our basement three piece bathroom.
Kendall and Ali's expertise presented many good insights for a challenging basement. From a plumbing stack that drained in the middle of the room to finding room for a bathroom, laundry, and storage in an entertainment space. All resulted in a basement with a nice look, flow and functionality.
The entire project came in on budget and we're very happy with the final product. None of this would have been possible without MG Inc.
I would recommend MG. Inc. to anyone I know looking to do a renovation or build on any scale.
