Awesome backyard transformation

We were in desperate need of a backyard makeover. We called multiple companies and had numerous quotes. Frank showed up at our door on time and with an amazing design. His team worked quickly and meticulously until the project was finished. Frank and his crew are by far the best contractors we have worked with. Excellent craftsmanship and customer service. I'd say best in the city for sure, in my opinion. I'd recommend Frank to anyone...simple.

Fence, Deck, Basement, Master Bathroom

This is way overdue.. I found Franmac/Decks r Us on Homestars. The reviews were so great and they were in our neighbourhood. Frank was immediately responsive and came to our home within 24 hrs. Very personable, knowledgeable, and PATIENT. We had an idea of what we wanted and Frank helped us to work through and made suggestions. We ended up doing 3 projects - one after the other. .By the time we were finished, Frank and his team felt like family. There was a 4th project (Kitchen) but I needed a break so that was postponed but will start again soon. (Frank, I'll be calling).
RELIABLE and DEPENDABLE- YES. You need not worry. Every morning at 6:30..team waiting patiently in the driveway for our lights to go on!
QUALITY of WORK: YES - Frank oversees his crew. He's very particular and is sure to brief his team every morning and then checks in throughout the day to ensure the work is progressing as planned.
We started with a new fence. Wow... a little creativity went a long way! Then the Deck: We had our first summer on our new deck....My FAVOURITE place!! It was exactly what we wanted..contemporary, visually impressive, inviting, lots of room for entertaining. Our home is somewhat high from the ground (but not a walk out). We wanted it to be flush walk out from the kitchen. DONE. Large storage area beneath. Only disappointment is that the rain/snow will go through the boards so everything underneath isn't protected. We should have laid a sheet or some kind of material before laying down the floor planks.
The Master Bathroom is a showpiece. Frank's idea to do a "feature wall" is the hand's down showstopper.
The basement was raw...now is lovely with a good size finished storage room, a bedroom, and full bathroom. Another "wow" factor was the creative use of the space under the stairs. Shelves..use for books or display. And BEHIND the book shelves (still under the stairs) there is a pull out wall for storage. Brilliant.
The team cleaned up after themselves daily. Frank took care of all trash removal AND even pick up of new bathroom toilet, bathtub.. Our hardest job was just figuring out and telling him what we wanted.
Frank took care of everything, plumber, electrician, permits with the City and arranged all electrical inspections after the work was done to ensure to code.

A sincere thank you for making this renovation as painless as possible.

Exceptional deck

From the onset, the owner Frank was extremely professional, helpful and a pleasure to work with. I interviewed numerous contractors (at least 8) and Frank stood out to be the absolute best person for the job. He worked with me on the design from start to finish. Frank went above and beyond my expectations every step of the way. Frank designed a beautiful unique deck that surpassed my expectations. He built a very large deck (as requested) and made sure that it did not overwhelm my property by using an interesting design that truly enhanced my backyard.
As far as quality, it was top notch! The buildings inspector was very impressed with the quality and workmanship of Franmac Group. (And this inspector rarely gives out compliments, if at all)
Frank was on the job-site every single day while the work was being done and consulted with me if decisions needed to be made. He made some very artistic suggestions that most deck contractors do not get involved with. Needless to say I was very impressed and happy with the end result. I am so glad I chose Franmac Group to build my new deck. I highly recommend these guys!!!

Beam Instillation and joints sistered

We are undergoing a full home renovation and have dealt with many contractors. Frank and his team were exceptional, they went above and beyond to do a great job. In particular Frank really looked out for us with other work being done in the house which we are very grateful for. Frank and his team treated our house like it was their own, they did a better cleaning job than I could do. The quality of work was exceptional and they worked with the inspector to ensure he was happy. I could not recommend Frank and his team enough, they have been the best team we have worked with.

Replace and repair load- bearing beams

Frank and his crew repaired/ replaced two structural beams for us and did a great job at a very fair price. Frank is knowledgeable and very quick to answer texts and his crew is professional, punctual, and respectful of the work site. We had met with 4 or more firms previously, but Frank impressed us by listening and not trying to upsell us. We will definitely be calling him again. Thanks guys! Passed inspection today!

deck, waterproofing

i had a water issue in my basement caused largely by a poorly built deck. I’ve found Frank and Mark to be excellent: professional, helpful, skilled and generous with advice. I trusted Frank's judgement from the moment i met him. he was a bit late sending me the promised quote but the execution has been superb. I loved that they'd arrive early (7 am) and work very efficiently — the job was done in less than 3 days. I asked for a small change/addition after the work was done and paid for, and Frank obliged. I’m now hoping to hire them to remove a chimney — no better way to demonstrate satisfaction than with repeat business!

Deck

Frank, Mark and all staff at FranMac were professional and very easy to deal with during the whole process of tear down and rebuilt/redesign of our deck. It turned out better than we could have imagined and are already glad we made the decision to have Frank, Mark and their team design and build our new deck. They actually worked a bit later one evening to have it completed 2 days earlier than expected. I would recommend FranMac to anyone who is looking for a contractor for any job they have big or small. Great work guys.

Two storey addition + a front addition.

What do we have to say about The FranMac Group Inc.?

Scope of the work: Two storey addition + a front addition.

I will start by saying that Frank and Mark are very patient professionals. Originally, we contacted them around two years ago; however, due to various circumstances, it was last August - September when the renovation of our home started.

Frank and Mark are trustworthy, honest professionals: Having heard so many horror stories about contractors and having in mind that, not my husband nor I have had recently much time to put aside in order to tackle all the different decisions that needed to be made for the renovation, Frank and Mark have guided us and provided us with the best of the solutions for our needs. it has been and it is a brise of fresh air been able to rely on them knowing that the job would get done in the best of the ways.

Frank and Mark are, what I would call, "wise old wolves" in the building / renovation industry: Their knowledge is immense. If there is anything that would improve the structure of the house and that is not stated in the drawings approved by the city, they would do it. If there are any changes that could better the end result, they would tackle them. In fact, we got to know after the fact about a few of those changes and even the inspector that came by the house approved of them. Isn't this a huge relieve?

Frank and Mark are constantly putting on the table solutions to all the issues that we have encountered since our home is an old home and, as you may imagine, if it is not one thing is another...

On top of everything, Frank and Mark are great people...The kind of people you would like to have over to enjoy a beer in the "men's cave" / patio area they have created off the basement..

Anyway, call them!!! You will not be disappointed.

Dallas and Teresa
