It took us a very long time to make a decision on replacing our decrepit pressure treated deck because we knew that if we are doing it, replacing this 25-year-old deck, we got to do something great that we will enjoy thoroughly. So, we have nothing but praise for m.e. contracting, for Ethan, Keren and the team for a job well done on our deck. The results are amazing, and we love our new deck.

It was not an easy journey trying to find a company to do a major reno of my backyard. Before we decided to hire M.E. contracting, we had meetings with quite a few contractors including Daryl the project manager of M.E. Now the project has been completed and we couldn’t be more convinced that we chose the right people. It has been a great pleasure to work with Daryl, Biwar and his construction team. Daryl came to every meeting on time, well-prepared, listened carefully to our requests and concerns. Daryl is articulate, experienced, and very personable with professional demeanor. He perfectly transformed what we wanted to the drawing. His design is simple, modern and artistic with characters. When it came to construction, it took Biwar’s team (10 or more guys) only a week to complete the major part of the project. Everything was so well-organized and coordinated from pre-work, material delivery to construction with no wait time in between. The job site was cleaned every day before guys left. During the construction, Daryl worked closely with us to tweak the plan and made adjustment accordingly. My neighbor who had been very concerned about their air con and stucco got damaged said to me after the construction, “They did a good job. Your backyard looks nice”. Overall we’re very pleased with the whole experience and the end result.

Wow!! Lily thank you so much for writing on our site. You were a pleasure to work along side to create your beautiful backyard. We couldn't be happier with the way it turned out and how happy you are with the completed project. Happy holidays from Daryl and the entire M.E. team.

This past summer my wife and I wanted to “renovate” our backyard so we began a search on Homestars for potential contractors. In our search, we came across ME Contracting and after seeing some photos of completed projects and reading some reviews, we decided to visit their showroom. It was there that we were introduced to Daryl who walked us through the various options for styles, designs and materials for decking, outdoor kitchens, landscaping, lighting, etc. It was obvious he was extremely knowledgable and was answering our many questions in a genuine, educational and non sales-y way. We by no means felt obligated to move to the next step, however Daryl offered to come by the house within 48 hours for a no obligation consultation and provide us with a quote for the potential project. Even when he came by our house we again felt no pressure to move forward, but given the positive experience we had so far we asked for a formal quote. Upon receiving the quote, we decided it was reasonable for the size of project and decided to hire ME Contracting officially. We actually didn’t even bother to get any other quotes before proceeding because we knew we were in the best hands. From there the entire process was extremely smooth and the project was managed extremely well and completed on time as discussed. There was constant communication and check ins from both our Project Manager and the owners of the Company to ensure everything was going smoothly and to our satisfaction. The materials arrived on time, the trades were all on site according to schedule and were meticulous about their work. We felt extremely taken care of throughout the entire project and were beyond pleased with the end result. If you’re looking for a reliable, professional company to give your outdoor space a makeover, look no further. In fact, we will be starting another project with ME in the Spring to redo the outdoor space in front of our home. Thank you ME Contracting!

Hi Carl, We were all so excited to read your review on our site. Thank you for those wonderful words and for sharing them.

We are SO impressed with the work that ME Contracting just completed at our house. It's rare that a renovating project delivers beyond expectations but this was definitely the case with our fence and masonry work. M.E's crew completed the work on time and within budget, in itself is golden, but they were also incredibly courteous and conscientious throughout the process. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any carpentry or masonry work, and in fact, plan to contact them in the spring to build our upper deck. Thank you Steve & co. for your exemplary job.

We couldn't be happier with the work that M.E. Contracting did. They were professional, courteous, on budget and on time. We have recommended them to many people since.

We especially loved dealing with Eitan and Karen.

Hi Fabio and Jasmin. As you are aware, your project won a Landscape Ontario Award for Excellence, and these pictures tell everyone why. Your project is stunning top to bottom and I'm sure you've enjoyed it immensely all summer. Thank you for this review. Keren and Eitan LOVED working with you too. It was our pleasure.

Daryl was professional and helpful in explaining and designing the iron fence that we wanted installed around our property. His team that came out did a great job and we are happy with how well the fence goes with our home. We would go back to M.E. for other hardscaping work based on this experience!

Daryl was wonderful. We had a small space to work with, a lot of specific objectives and changed our minds a couple of times on the ultimate plan. He was very patient, came up with excellent solutions and took the time to walk us through options and details to meet our objectives and budget. His team executed the plans extremely well and in a very short period of time. We would not hesitate to use ME again.

Work that was completed was generally good. Crew were pleasant and worked hard. Communication and scheduling were extremely poor. Difficult summer for outdoor work, but we were told repeatedly that they'd be starting "next week", then no one would show up and no explanations were offered. No consultation other than for initial estimate, no drawings or design info. Several areas were left without finishing, so we have to complete it ourselves. Don't sign a contract with this company without first building in completion dates, and make payment(s) contingent on the job being done to your satisfaction.

Thank you for your comments. Although we do strive to build our projects in a timely, efficient manner, it is not always possible due to the weather conditions.

We will take your comments under consideration, as we are always looking for ways to improve.

In regards to our drawings, it was not discussed to do full drawings, and a pencil sketch was decided on. Going forward we will make these types of services more clear.

Enjoy the rest of the summer.
M.E. Contracting.

Our backyard was weathered and the layout wasn't as functional as it could be. We decided to renovate the entire space, including fencing, grass, patio and deck.

When Eitan first visited our home to provide an estimate for a new backyard, I knew he was the type of person I wanted to work with. His approach was thorough, organized, and detailed. He took the time to answer all my questions clearly (I ask a lot of questions!), and he made suggestions while being conscious of budget. This same approach was demonstrated by his on-site team led by Tomer. Throughout the job, Tomer handled everything as if it was his own home. At one point we encountered a hurdle, and Tomer helped us re-design the deck, which turned out better than what we had originally planned, and costs were adjusted accordingly. The team's dedication and workmanship was excellent despite challenges with the unusual rainy season. We are very happy with the final result!

Throughout the entire process, everyone at M.E. Contracting did a great job. This organization is skilled and professional. And above all that, they are all genuinely nice people and it was an honest pleasure working with them.

Eitan, Tomer, and the M.E. Contracting team -- thank you once again!

Cheers,
Vince
