We contracted John Lachin of Lachin Construction to complete a large interlocking job at our home in Vaughan; a large patio, walkways up both sides of the house, a front porch extension, front walkway and landing pad for porch, plus a border around our driveway.
The workmanship was undeniably fantastic! Existing stones / earth was carefully removed, an appropriate amount of gravel and screening laid, and grading was perfectly sloped away from our house. For the front porch extension John dug down to the footings, laid new footings, built a block foundation wall, appropriate tie-ins and rebar, and poured a brand new concrete pad. Front porch covered in slate (in my humble opinion it looks great), and two natural stone steps. Overall we are incredibly pleased and the quality of the work performed was beyond our expectations. John even added some accents to the surrounding areas to beautify even more (accent stones and architecturally pleasing curves – let’s call it John’s flair).
John and the salesperson were incredible to deal with. Both were personable, honest, timely, responsive, caring, listened (a skill a lot of people no longer possess), and complete trustworthy – essentially all the characteristics that you want in a contractor that you trust your home to and expend hard earned dollars on.
John’s recommendations were greatly appreciated. Any changes to plans were discussed in advance of being executed. Time and cost estimates for the totality of the work were incredibly accurate.
We only have great things to say about both John’s. I would highly recommend John Lachin and his team.
