After 14 years of living in a condominium, my mom and I were finally able to make her dream come true; buy a house! The house we purchased was perfect and it a great location, however, the dream wasn't quite fulfilled yet because the house needed some pretty intense renovations for us to be able to call it "a home". Coming from a construction backround from employment, I put my nose to the grindstone and began my research to find the "perfect" company that could help my mom and I fulfill our (mainly her) dream. I called and had countless meetings with over a dozen general contractors and renovation/ construction companies and finally stumbled upon McLean Construction and Renovation. From many years of experience in the construction field, I can say 100% that I know expertise when I see it! I had a meeting with McLean and knew right away that this was the perfect company for the job! The meeting was not a waste of my time or full of bogus plans and sugar coated promises to lure me in like many renovation companies tend to be just to get business from you. Instead I was presented with knowledgeable people in the industry, a very detailed breakdown of the work entailed to complete the scope of work, detailed breakdown of cost for every portion of the reno project, a group of creative minds to help our own ideas be even better and bring them to life, proof of past projects that they had completed with phenominal results and one of the most courteous, polite, informative and professional groups of people you will ever meet in the construction industry! I have to say I was pretty blown away! We signed a contract with McLean to take on the job and to this day I'm so thankful that we did! The house needed a pretty hefty facelift to say the least! The renovation included a brand new kitchen complete with a more functional layout and optimal use of space, restoration of existing hardwood flooring, new staircase and railing, new baseboards, trim, doors and casings complete with modern hardware throughtout the home, painting throughout, installation and wiring of new light fixtures, replacement of old windows and a brand new double front door complet with a spectacular transom above. The renovation was completed with the least disturbance possible for such a huge project, within the promised time frame, on budget, met every building code and most importantly, to our liking! Everything went smoothly and the finished product is absolutley stunning! It was a pleasure dealing with McLean Construction and I will definitley be calling them back to complete further renovation projects that my mom and I have planned! We can't thank you enough for all the hard work and dedication put into this project! McLean Construction helped me make my moms dream come true; we started out with "a house" but now we have "a home"! We look forward to working with your company on our next renovation venture!! Thank you!!!
