We contracted Mclaren Custom Homes October 2019 to renovate our upper level 4 bedroom Mississauga home and we are extremely pleased and proud of the results. Over a 4-month timeline Jon of Mclaren Custom Homes and Ross transformed our upper level from dingy, outdated and unappealing to bright, modern, relaxing and pleasing to the eye. The renovation included gutting to the studs, insulating and re-drywalling the master bathroom, and expanding a 2-piece bathroom to include a shower. The main upstairs bathroom was renovated by Mclaren Custom Homes 2 years previously according to the same standards. The popcorn ceilings were removed, the door frames and baseboards were replaced. Pot lights were installed in the master bedroom, and all bathrooms; the master closets were expanded, and new light fixtures were installed in the bathrooms, bedrooms and hallway. In addition, the main staircase was capped, railing replaced, and hardwood flooring was installed. Extra insulation and baffles were added to the attic space.
All of Jon’s trades people: carpentry (Ross), licensed electricians, plumbers, plasterers, tilers, painters, shower glass installers, hardwood floor and stair installers were skilled, knowledgeable, and professional and demonstrated years of experience and pride in their work. The electrical work was inspected by ESA. Jon’s choice of trades people is evident in the final product.
Ross designed and built the master closet and linen closets as well as doing the framing, drywalling, door frames, baseboards and spray insulation.
Work was done to code and scheduled and completed according to the contracted timeline with only minor variations. Jon is easy to work with, is trustworthy, competently experienced in home renovations/building, and explained each stage thoroughly to us. Our questions were answered, and any concerns were resolved satisfactorily. Our upper level of our home after the renovation is now comfortable and a pleasure to be in and adds value to our home. We can confidently recommend Mclaren Custom Homes and his trades people to deliver a home renovation to be proud of. The final product of the renovation demonstrates that doing things correctly is the best policy. In the years to come we hope to contract with Jon again to renovate the main level of our home.

Yes! We are looking forward to round three when we get to come back for the main floor!
I'm very happy about the transformation we made in your upstairs space. Not only did we update all of the items that were in dire need of it (such as the flooring, tiles, trim and paint); but we also were able to really utilize your storage space in a much more efficient, streamline way with the custom closets we did.
