Windows installation

Excellent company to hire for windows installations.
Both Mark and Bryan had done a great job.
They have installed 15 windows throughout the house. It took them 2 days. The price was very reasonable.
I would recommend them to anyone!
Cheers,
Greg

Landscaping and redesigning

What true professionals with a heart. So, we are sitting on the rug in the living room enjoying some quiet time and a beverage and just loving our home. Besides the fabulous updates, attention to detail and fine craftsmanship, we are both overwhelmed with gratitude for above and beyond touches. Where to begin? Everything from the stocked fridge to the new TV and movies, finished bath, to the landscaping and new bushes out front. Not to mention, the clean up and re-org is more than we could have hoped for. It truly has been a pleasure working with you!

Mike (co-owner) of the company was amazing from the first call right through to completion. He even went with us with our real estate agent to look at houses before we had even signed a contract with him. We had the whole house gutted and custom built for us. He took care of the architect, interior designer and all permits. We had to worry about nothing. He was very involved in every step of the process. Mark was the front man in charge of the work on site and he was so courteous to our new neighbours and kept the whole project on time. Our whole house was redone in just 4 and a half months.

Complete rebuild of bathrooms and basement office including plumbing, electrical, drywall, etc

This is our 3rd home improvement project and the 1st time we've wanted to make a recommendation! Mike and his crew were unfailingly professional, responsible, communicative and tidy - PLUS they did a great job! They showed up every morning and cleaned up every evening. We got an e-mail from Mike almost every night, detailing that day's progress and new challenges (unavoidable with old houses), and making sure that we were on track with whatever decisions had to be made to keep the project running smoothly. M-Squared was committed to their original time estimate and when unexpected electrical issues slowed them down, they worked weekends in an effort to stay on schedule. We were most impressed by the scope and caliber of subtrades that they were able to call upon -for example, the job did not originally require a master electrician, but it did once they opened up the walls and found outdated wiring. M-Squared was able to bring in a terrrific electrician right away, avoiding what could have turned into a lengthy delay. M-Squared also provided a detailed cost estimate from the very beginning, which made it easy to see where we were spending our money and where we might cut back. The final cost did come out well above the initial estimate, but again, old houses mean lots of surprises so you have to expect that. The important thing was that Mike kept us informed, and submitted invoices for all subtrades and materials along with hours worked by his own crew.
When small problems surfaced many months after the work was complete, they showed up to correct them promptly and politely. We know so many people who have ended up feeling disappointed and taken advantage of by their contractors. M-Squared was not inexpensive, but we ended up with a lovely finished product that was completed on schedule with minimal stress and no conflict. I am happy to recommend M-Squared.

Full house renovation

Msquared contracting is the best construction company I have ever worked with to do home renovations. Mike (co-owner) of the company was amazing from the first call right through to completion. He even went with us with our real estate agent to look at houses before we had even signed a contract with him. We had the whole house gutted and custom built for us. He took care of the architect, interior designer and all permits. We had to worry about nothing. He was very involved in every step of the process.
Mark was the front man in charge of the work on site and he was so curtious to our new neighbours and kept the whole project on time. Our whole house was redone in just 4 and a half months. Amazing!

01system Recording Studio Build

Called them on a Friday at 5pm, had a meeting two days later on Sunday and they started the project two weeks later. A great company to work with. They were exceedingly professional.
The project started with demolition of the walls and kitchen of my condo. Then it progressed to installation of new fire sprinkler system, two rooms within a room floating on vibration isolating pads. They were very agile, able to build a sound baffle for the air conditioning on a couple days notice. They came in about 3% over budget and basically right on schedule. I have already recommended their services to others.

Complete renovation of upper and lower level including 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, family room, office, staircase ...

When we met Mike for the first time, we knew he was the right contractor for the job. He was very professional - punctual, organized, knowledgeable as well as experienced. He has an eye for good, functional design and was also very realistic with us.

M-Squared transformed our old, outdated, suburban house into a beautiful, modern and functional home. Mike did an amazing job as project manager but was also hands on when needed. Mike and his team communicated with us on a regular basis which meant there were never any surprises. It was really a pleasure working with them.

When we had any questions or concerns, Mike would respond promptly.
We are very happy with our renovation; we know we made the right decision. We are also very grateful to M2 for all of their hard work. It was great having a dedicated team working on our house full time; we were impressed with site preparation and clean up on a daily basis.

Mike completed the job within budget and on time.
We would highly recommend M-Squared contracting and would be happy to show off their amazing work. We wish them all the best!

re-renovation of a living room, that was very poorly renovated former owners of our house

Mike and his team were terrific; organized and very skilled. They completed the entire project so quick and with great tips and advise along the way, to improve our plan. It is finally warm in this room. We would hire Mike and his team again, anytime!

kitchen, bathroom, basement renovations, etc...

Following the amazing job Mike and his team did (see my earlier review) I decided to also have a library custom-made by M-Squared Contractors in the basement "family"-room. Once more, the result was better than expected. I'm joining a few pictures not only of the library (sorry the picture is not quite as sharp as I would have liked ), but also of the kitchen and bathroom done by Mike and described/reviewed by me previously. I can only repeat myself, and recommend Mike and his team wholeheartedly, without any restrictions, nor ifs and buts!

Basement Renovation

We just recently purchased a home in the Beaches and two weeks in had the unfortunate experience of having to replace the sanitary pipes in the basement. As a result, not only did we lose our carpet in the space but discovered that water was leaking into the basement through our north wall. We contacted m squared contracting and they came to do an assessment.

Mike worked with us on the problem, first doing a diagnostic assessment of the situation and then offering several solutions. On his recommendation, we ended up having the north wall re-framed, new insulation, drywall, trim and carpet and paint as well as putting in a sub floor. It was unfortunate that the initial contractor who finished the basement did not address any of these issues and basically only did a cosmetic fix to the problem that left us holding the bag.

As new homeowners, we were very stressed out about the situation, but Mike guided us through every step of the process. This started with a detailed quote and outline of the scope of work to be done. His team did an outstanding job. They were prompt, organized, tidy and always on time. They met all of the agreed timelines and the job was completed on time and on budget.

After assessing the situation, Mike was able to recommend several preventative measures that would stop any water making its way into the basement again. This ranged from the team re-grading the front of the house under the porch to make sure water would run away from the property, as well as taking out a window that was under grade in the foundation and making sure the foundation wall would not compromised in the future. Mike was able to trouble shoot the issues and provide us with the proper preventative measures to ensure that we could enjoy this space for many years to come. It is this kind of forward thinking and initiative that you don’t see everyday when you undertake a renovation.

We now have a cozy family room in the basement that we can use and not have to worry about any future water damage or mold.

The team was also able to create a built in under the stairs to use for extra storage, which has greatly added to the use of the space.

I would highly recommend Mike and his team for anyone looking to renovate their space. There are many general contractors in Toronto, but it is few and far between that one would find someone as professional, caring and committed as Michael Lawrance.
