We recently renovated our home that involved a three storey addition. This included a kitchen and basement renovation and the addition of a master bedroom and ensuite. At the beginning of the project, our architect, Wanda Ely, recommended M-Squared Contracting. We were absolutely thrilled with the job that M-Squared completed. Right from the beginning, Mike Lawrance, the owner, was professional, punctual and detailed. Every aspect of the project was well managed. Given our home was built in 1925, there were many elements that we wanted to preserve and were not being touched during the renovation. Mike’s team painstakingly protected the specific areas of the house that were not being renovated to ensure that no damage was done. Wainscoting was protected, existing light fixtures were carefully wrapped, labelled and stored and floors were properly covered.
This level of respect continued throughout the renovation. The job site was kept very tidy and clean. Neighbours commented that at the end of each day, the yard was tidied up and was not an eyesore. One of the main features of working with M-squared is the staff. Every employee is friendly, respectful and hardworking. The staff showed up everyday to work. Not one day was missed. No request was too small and everyone we encountered was polite and anxious to make sure that we as clients were happy. Mike is extremely detailed. Project list were kept up to date and were very detailed. Budget meetings were held on a regular basis. If there were any changes to the budget, we were notified and were presented with change orders. There were no surprise financial items presented at any point during the project. In addition, when the project began, M-Squared committed to and met the completion date.
Being on-time and on-budget, is something unheard of this industry and is a testament to M-squared organization level of commitment. M-Squared also worked very well with our architect and her team. Together they problem solved and came up with creative solutions to any issue. There was never finger pointing or blame, just solutions. Overall our experience with M-Squared was excellent. We are very happy with the quality of work and the end result. We would highly recommend working with M-Squared, no matter the size, scale or detail level of the project.
