Renovation of old home addition which was deteriorating, including waterproofing. Wrought iron fence installation.

Michael Thompson, of Thompson Construction, was one of three contractors I contacted. He was extremely knowledgeable about details of the work to be done, emphasizing the importance of doing the work with the best long term result. He did the work himself with his two employees. He was either on site, or guided them for short periods while away. A lot of the work was accomplished by Michael.

The work related to leakage into a back stair addition of my 100 year old Beach home. It smelled of mildew, was cold, and I could see water damage on the plasterboard.

During the renovation, as predicted, there was damage to the foundation, requiring waterproofing of the basement area, on the outside of the house. Due to dry-rot of the wood, a rebuild of the addition was also extensive.

With each issue, Michael showed me what the concern was, and how it could be solved.

The final result was magnificent, as Michael maintained to beauty of the original woodwork, but with new wood. It is now warm, dry, and mildew free. I did not think it could be done!

The wrought iron fence was installed to such a high level of skill, my neighbour is now asking Michael to continue the fence onto his property. Because my neighbour is in the construction business, and would know a number of good people, I was impressed Michael was asked to do this work. By the way, my neighbour did not know Michael prior to the work.

I recommend Thompson Construction without reservation, and will have him back in the spring for further work.

Front Porch & Balcony

From our first discussion, Michael attended to our project with great care and attention, while providing many creative ideas to rebuild our collapsing front porch, stairs and balcony railings. We now have gorgeous new pillars and glass railings, plus a beautifully lit cedar ceiling over the porch. Rave reviews from the whole neighbourhood...and they didn't even experience the pleasure of working with Michael and his crew.

Hi Bruce and Anna thank you for the raving review. It was a pleasure working with you both. This project was great from the beginning, you both had a dream and a vision of what you needed. I am happy that you both gave us the opportunity to built your dream and bring it to reality. I hope you all enjoy your out door living area as we enjoyed building it!!!.

Front Porch renovation

We were overall very pleased with Michael's work. He was friendly and kind and was prompt in dealing with concerns. We did need him to come and fix an error which delayed the completion of our porch - but he did so without complaint.
We shared our concerns re:him working only during allowed hours by the city as our neighbourhood is known for calling the city for noise violations. He started one day about 10 minutes before the allowed time which resulted in a noise violation letter from the city for us - which was a frustration. We recognize that other people were working on the street at that time, but, knowing our neighbourhood, wished that he had simply waited the 10 minutes to avoid this.
In the end however, we were so happy with our porch and our kids still ask when we will see him again. Thanks Michael for making the experience such a pleasant one.

porch railing

Michael and his partner did an excellent job in removing old wooden posts and railings on either side of the front outdoor steps and replacing it all with new wooden railings. The job was done in a day and Michael answered any questions I had while at the site then cleaned up beautifully. I found Michael to be very professional and respectful and would hire him again. My only concern was having to wait a few days at times for a response to my emails.

Hi Elsie. My team and I are happy you are pleased with the final product.

Yes, I acknowledge that the administrative part of the work remains a challenge for me but happy to announce that I have recently hired a P/T Admin. Asst. to help me with the backend work. This should improve my response time significantly. Thank you for the feedback!

Best,
Mike

Fence removed and rebuilt

Rarely do you find a quality company like Thompson Construction. Michael and his talented crew did a super job removing and rebuilding our seventy foot backyard privacy fence. They were extremely professional, pleasant and completed the job in a timely and workmanlike manner. In fact, we have already recommended Michael to a friend and would like him to price another job for us. Thank you Thompson Construction!

Front and Back Yard and Exterior Work

We are very thankful to have found Michael and very happy we worked with him. His expertise and communication made all the difference as we went through a rather large transformation of our outside spaces. Michael and his crew worked their butts off to insure things were done properly and they actually showed up and worked consistently. Michael always had a smile to go along with his work ethic. We've recommended him to friends and colleagues without hesitation. We had a saying "Trust in Michael" because when we brought something up or were throwing anything his way he would give us proper guidance in our decision making and then we could trust he would make it happen. Thanks again for the hard work and great finished product. Go Team Michael!

Backyard stone patio, steps and garden wall.

Everything about the project was professionally approached and completed. Time estimates were set up front and adhered to. Very satisfied with how the project turned out and would absolutely recommend them and use Thompson Construction again!

Front Porch Renovation - August 2018

Micheal and his team recently re-did our front porch and the results were fantastic.

We have an oddly shaped porch that other companies we had called for a quote were hesitant to work with.
However, when Michael first came to assess the project, there was no hesitation. He instantly let us know that our vision for the work was very achievable.

From that point on every interaction with him and his team was extremely professional.

From meeting with us off site to select the stones, to their clean, timely and attentive work, we couldn’t have been happier. We’ve worked with some horrible contractors before, but Michael and team went above and beyond what we hoped for.

His pricing was fair as to what we expected and didn’t surprise us with any hidden expenses. Even painted fences we didn’t ask for.

We really appreciate the work they did and will not hesitate to use Thompson Construction again in the future and highly recommend their services to anyone ready this.

Thanks again Michael for your work.

Backyard Fence

We were very happy with Michael Thompson and his crew. As we were building the fence with our neighbour, many designs were requested and priced and all were done with precision and professionalism. Construction started and was completed in the contracted timeline. All remnants of the old fence were removed and our yard was left in great shape. We were impressed with Michael's knowledge and work ethic. We are very pleased with our new fence and would highly recommend Thompson Construction.
