Condo Building

The building I live is was constructed so poorly that my unit is regularly above 25 degrees even with a window open in the middle of February. The property managers just say deal with it.

427 & Holiday Drive

Horrible experience. 1st day, had to replace all fire alarms as it was low and would not stop beeping. 2nd day, leak in the ceiling, had to call a plumber to fix and he had to drill a hole in my dry wall to solve the issue. 3rd day, laundry room flooded. Menkes gave us a faulty machine. The list goes on, customer care has been giving us the run around. Nothing is aligned, all the walls are uneven and scratched, the floors are not leveled, some areas we can see the creek underneath the floors. Tiles are cracked, doorbell doesn't work, heating system is horrible. We've been stressed since we first moved in. For our first home ever, this was a horrible purchase. STAY AWAY!

Harbour Plaza

Menkes isn't even close to the top in quality. Currently living in Harbour Plaza in the East Tower in it's OCCUPANCY phase. These units have been completed "on time" which is unheard of b/c the workmanship is rushed.

The washroom sink faucet continues to run after turned off for a few solid seconds. Menkes initially refused to fix this indicating that they are "slow closing facets" and that this is normal. This is not normal and this does not happen with the kitchen sink or the faucet for the bath tub. Customer service indicated that this is normal - I've asked individuals on my floor and other floors, that is not the case.

There is hardened grout on sink fixtures and the doorknobs in the bathroom that cannot be removed.

Enclaves of Upper Canada Georgetown

The quality is really bad, is not like an experience builder job. We bought the house a year ago because it would be built by menkes, but they let us very disappointed for the quality of hardwood floor, painting on the wall, job in bathrooms, interior, experior... you name it, what a mess for the project management. Will never buy a house built by this builder.

Harbour Plaza

Disgusting customer service and the sales staff will mislead you until they have you on the dotted line! They won't disclose important details with you. Craftsmanship is also disgusting and the builders they hire are usually commercial builders who don't know how to build residential. Everyone working at Menkes is rude as you can imagine. Stay far far far away!

Stay Away From This Developer

It was our first purchase from Menkes, and we were also one of the original occupants. As you can see, direct subway tunnel access was advertised in black and white on October 2013. First occupancy was around late 2014, it has been more than 2 years now, and the tunnel is still incomplete.

People move into a place based on its price, location, and features. Despite what the complication was, it's considered as false advertisement in my mind.

How would you feel if you purchased a movie ticket that has "Dolby surround feature" written on it, but only to find out the cinema currently only has 2 basic speakers, and the advertised "Dolby Surround" won't be available for another 2 years?

Menkes

I wish i knew about all these reviews before. Menkes so far is our worst experience ever. Customer Service is disrespectful and i have no words to describe their lack of disorganization. Quality wise, our window frames no aliened ( cant even install shades), main columns are crooked. if you are still going with this builder, make sure you understand what they are selling as an upgrade we paid 1600 for stained stairs and they only installed and stained the handrails for that price.......

New Home

Stay FAR FAR away from this company! POOR quality workmanship coupled with a lack of integrity! I was so disappointed with the final product. Delivery of the final product was definitely subpar.

House phase 3

After owning our previous homes, my wife and i had a great idea of what exactly we were looking for. We purchased the home in 2011 and Menkes has been great. We visited the site daily and even raised our concerns during the construction process which they rectified quickly! (brick pattern was incorrect). Even after closing they took care of all of our concerns and even to this day, we still email their customer service (Dana) who is very helpful with supplying (which contractors did what so we can have certain projects continued by them) Like mentioned we were on the site on a regular basis and compared to our other house (during construction) the site was always kept clean. When we took possession we did have a home inspector in just to double check and we were happy that everything was good (with some minor fixes). Altogether we liked the entire process we had with Menkes and would buy from them again.
