Cannot recommend MGM enough - made what is typically a very stressful process (partial demolition of an existing house and adding new rooms and garage, all while we still lived in it) very smooth. From first day of demolition work (May 30) to closing of construction permit (Sept. 29th) was 4 months - that included:
* Demolition of existing garage and gutting of upstairs bedrooms + roof removal
* Excavation and pouring of new foundation
* Framing, roofing and exterior (wood siding + brick)
* Insulation, drywall, plumbing, electrical, tiling, painting, hardwood, HVAC
In total, there were 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large two-car garage and a sunroom included in the work.
From the beginning, things went very well - the price was much better than two other firms who quoted, and Mina was far more detail-oriented and attentive about the work to be done than the other two as well.
The hiccups that occurred along the way (both large and small) were also well-handled - during framing of the new second floor, we realized that the designer had forgotten to include headroom over the stairs to the new level and the clearance at the top of the stairs was going to be less than 3 feet as a result. Given that the roof trusses for the house had already been fabricated and were sitting on our lawn at the time, changing the roof design was not an option without incurring a huge delay (and cost) - Mina offered to get us in touch with another designer if we weren't able to get immediate resolution from our initial designer, and we came up with a solution that involved rearranging the starting placement of the roof trusses and raising the walls on the lower portion of the house from 8 feet to 10 feet to bring the stair clearance up to an acceptable level. The total delay incurred was less than a week, which was fantastic given the nature of the error and the potential delay which could have occurred.
Mina works with a large collection of people, and our experience with all of them was good - the demolition and foundation team were very precise (including smoothing out and gently sloping the garage floor so water drained from all locations out the garage doors), the framing team was efficient while also offering suggestions for how to make the structure more solid and avoid future issues, the roofing/exterior team did an excellent job and were able to get the shingles on much faster than expected, which prevented us from getting a ton of water into the open part of the house during a large rainstorm in June, the masonry team was similarly efficient and precise, the electrical and plumbing teams both offered good suggestions and took extra care to ensure ample breaker distribution and water pressure respectively, and the tiling, painting and hardwood teams also all showed similar care, precision, quality of workmanship and attention to detail.
Given how many people I've spoken with that experienced delays and overruns and problems and etc on their renovation projects, I definitely consider myself very lucky to have found MGM who wrapped up work on-time and on-budget - Mina and I were in very regular communication throughout the project (often several times a day via text messages), and I really felt like the whole project was done according to my wishes and expectations. If you're looking for someone to work with, MGM has my full recommendation, and I'm planning to work with them again when we renovate the remaining portion of the house.
MGM were more then fair with the entire process/contract I had with them for a concrete slab installation for my garage. From the beginning they're estimate was very reasonable; as estimates from other companies were extremely expensive or were given over the phone without even seeing the job!! MGM were very personable and I trusted they're team to work amongst my property without any concerns. I too have my own business and I know the value of job completion. It was easy to see that all individuals were specialists in the construction and forming trade. They provided me with a surmountable amount of material to complete my project and did not cut corners to allow for any type of possible mishap. My job ran into the later hours of the day and I took note that the employees remained focused and on task. The contract owner/supervisor "Mina" was present for the job in it's entirety and the finished product was beyond what I could have ever imagined. Dealing with people for business is all about networking and and MGM put me at easy for any questions or concerns!!! I would only deal with this company in the future for any further projects in this regard.
I dealt with MGM Dream Homes for my home renovation. They were very friendly and easy to deal with. They paid attention to all the small details and organized the project very well.
Overall extremely happy and pleased with the work.
