70's Kitchen gets a makeover!

Thank you to everyone at MacLeans Custom Kitchens, we just love our new kitchen. It's beautiful.
We really appreciated Terry adjusting the plans until we got it just right, he didn't seem to mind lol. Dave was fantastic with the tiles and crown moulding. Trevor did a great job with the trim. And of course, Barb kept everyone organised and in line.....
Lastly they kept with the timelines and the price didn't change at the end.
I highly recommend this team to do your reno!

Kitchen

Our kitchen reno with MacLeans was a huge success!! We had to remove 2 walls which opened up our kitchen, dining and living rooms. Thank you to Dave, Terry & Barb and Trevor. The service you provided was exceptional in every way. I had received several quotes and we picked MacLeans because they are a full service ... they did everything. However, we did opt to do our own tear-out, floor and countertop which was OK with them. In hindsight, I wish we had MacLeans do our floor and countertop. We picked a double shaker cupboard in white and went for a black island with black countertop, white subway tile backspash and grey 12" x 24" floor tiles. I don't think a day goes by that we don't say how happy we are with our new kitchen.

Main Level reno & kitchen creation

The short version is Amazing, Amazing, don't use anyone else!!
Long version - We felt like Goldilocks in our investigation process. Met with 3 contractors, one was big, had a long time frame with a big price; another was a one-man show, very nice but we would have to do the co-ordinating and we do not have the time; MacLeans were just right!. They acknowledged this was a big job for us, they had a fair price and were going to be half the time of the big guys since would dedicate themselves to our project only.
That ticked all of our boxes. Barb was the coach throughout the whole process and has unending patience. Terry, Dave and Trevor work so well together, are very competent and courteous. They cleaned up every day so we could still live here during the reno. They met all code and safety guidelines and never missed a beat when we asked for little things to be done.
MacLeans brings a lot of experience to the table and we were able to benefit from this, helping with all the decisions along the way and would not let us compromise even when we were running out of steam ourselves.
Thank you Barb, Terry, Dave & Trevor - we now have a stunning home to enjoy.

Kitchen renovation

I could not be happier with MacLean's Custom Kitchens! From the minute I walked into their showroom until the job was complete I was shown nothing less than patience and excellent customer service.
Terry and his team are friendly, hard-working and dedicated to what they do. Barb went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and meet with me during times that suited me. I was never made to feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. This kitchen renovation was a huge deal to my husband and I and we couldn't be happier with the quality of product and level of service we recieved.
Thank you Terry and Barb and all the hard workers at MacLeans!

Bathroom renovation

MacLeans renovated two bathrooms for us, one was fairly standard replacement of cabinets and fixtures while the other was out en-suite. Materials and workmanship were first class and all issues raised were dealt with promptly.
With the exception of two minor upgrades that we asked for after signing the project came in on budget and with no surprises. The length of the project was in line with their projections and we intend to use them again for our kitchen renovation.
We couldn't be more pleased with MacLeans Custom Kitchens.

Kitchen/main floor renovation

Macleans undertook a very big job for us including the removal of 2 load bearing walls as well as a total Reno of the kitchen. We found Terry, Dave, and Trevor to be professional and courteous. From beginning to end, they were always willing to walk us through the process and answer any questions we had. We are thrilled with our new kitchen and living space and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Kitchen and Main Floor Renovation

My husband and I wanted to renovate our kitchen and install new flooring through out the main floor. We had researched reviews and been to several kitchen renovators. When we visited MacLeans we met with Barb. We liked her immediately, she was friendly, helpful and very patient. It took us several trips to the store to make decisions and pick the products that we wanted to install. Barb was very patient and never pushy, she let us take our time until we were completely satisfied with our chooses. Once we finalized our products Barb kept us updated with the installation schedule. Terry, Dave and Trevor installed the kitchen. They were friendly and made sure we were satisfied with the installation. They checked in if they needed us to make a decision and they kept us updated during the process. They were helpful and answered all our questions. We are so happy we chose to use MacLeans for our renovations, our kitchen looks fabulous.

Kitchen & Bathroom Renovation

A new kitchen and bathroom were long overdue for our 50's bungalow. So when my wife and I were in need of a trustworthy, reliable and honest contractor, Macleans did not disappoint! They gave us a wonderful new space that we'll be enjoying for years to come. Macleans is thee one-stop shop with amazing contacts in each field of work (flooring, electrical, demolition). Their vast experience was evident in their work and design. Everyone who came through our house was very professional, courteous and kind. We remained as close as one could to the budget and the end results were terrific. We highly recommened Macleans for your renovation needs. Thank-you!

Kitchen & Powder Room Renovation

After reviewing homestars we selected 3 companies that were top rated to have them come by and provide us with quotes. After receiving the quotes and reading through all the positive reviews of MacLeans we selected them to do our Kitchen and Powder room renovation. From our initial meeting with Barb and Terry we felt very comfortable with our selection. The quote they provided was very detailed and they answered all questions we had regarding it. To begin, we went to MacLeans showroom to meet with Barb to select our finishes (cabinet design, colour, knobs, countertop, tiles) - our quote provided us with options in certain levels - if we wanted something different we were able to select it and the price would be adjusted - our quote provided us with a quartz countertop in a level 3, however we really like the look of a quartz countertop in their level 1 so we ended up saving almost $500. This was one of the first major advantages in selecting MacLeans as we did need to go anywhere to get anything else!! We had met initially in October to pick our items and told Barb that we had a child due at the end of March - Barb said they would do their best to have the construction start in early February. To her word, they began on a Friday in late January. Our job was not a large one as Terry and Barb said, just ripping out an old 12x12 kitchen, powder room and putting it all back together, however the speed at which it all took place had us in aw. This leads the next reason why this company is outstanding - they had all the contractors they work with set up and ready to go - we did not have to get different guys in to do different jobs. MacLeans had the demo guys in Friday afternoon, the flooring guys in Saturday, Monday and Tuesday morning, Terry, his brother and son arrived Tuesday afternoon to start putting the kitchen back together, the electrition arrived Tuesday afternoon to install the potlights. By Thursday Terry and his team had finished up and on Friday the countertop guys came to measure. The process for countertop took 2 weeks and then Terry and his team came back to hook up the sinks and dishwasher. Every single one of the contracts that came to our house was kind, courteous and professional. Terry, his brother and son were top notch professionals at what they did, answered any and all questions we had, as well as provided some great ideas. Barb was very easy to work with, returned all emails promptly and offered great suggestions for things we needed or didn't think of.

We have already recommended the MacLeans team to friends and family and will continue to do so and will use them again without hesitation.
