Kitchen and Bathroom Renovation

Maralon is fantastic total pros. I would defiantly do a reno with these guys again. My kitchen and bathroom are gorgeous. Mike and Fernando came to work every day without exception. Fit and finish are perfect. I felt that they treated my reno as if it was their own. These guys are experienced craftsmen.

Basement Flood Reno, etc.

After suffering a sewer backup in the Great Toronto Flood of July, 2013, our insurance broker sent a company to do emergency cleanup. We took our time to find a contractor to rebuild the basement for us. We didn't want to just "slap it together". Our designer/friend recommended Maralon to us very highly. After our first meeting with Mike, we were sure we were in good hands. His recommendations were thoughtful and considered.

Mike and his assistant, Fernando, rebuilt our 3-piece bathroom, laundry room, hallway and guest room. They were able to make the bathroom larger (they borrowed space from the laundry room by stacking the washer/dryer), more efficient and beautiful than I ever imagined it could be. Frankly, the flood couldn't have happened at a better time. I was really fed up with the poor state of the old bathroom and the grottiness of our laundry room. Mike pointed out mistakes that had been made in the construction of the old bathroom and told me, and then showed me, how to build it properly with waterproofing and proper sealing and construction methods. I have absolutely no fears of this new bathroom leaking or having cracked tiles any time soon.

We are a family of five and Mike knew how important it was for me to have access to my laundry machines during the weekends so every Friday night, he and Fernando would put the machines back in place so I could use them and then on Monday, the machines would be removed again so that they could continue to construct and finish the bath/laundry room. That was a gesture that I was extremely grateful for.

Everything that they did was done very well. I am very pleased with the quality of the workmanship. I am now proud to have guests come through my basement and to have overnight guests. They will be very comfortable now and will feel spoiled, I am sure, using our luxurious bathroom.

While they were here, I asked them to attend to a few other repairs around the house. They were able to diagnose and fix a leak from my second floor bath and repaired the ceiling below the leak. They also made new doors for my family room wall unit and rebuilt one side of the unit to accommodate a new, larger flat screen TV. I had always been unsatisfied with the workmanship on this wall unit (built by a previous contractor) and Mike took a dog's breakfast and made it (with a lot of effort and tricky maneouvers) into something I am finally proud of.

They also did the backsplash tiling in my kitchen (an on-going reno) and built new cabinet doors and drawer fronts. I have not yet received the doors but I am sure they will be perfect.

Both Mike and Fernando were always very polite and well-mannered, well groomed and quiet. Important qualities when they are working in your home with you there most of the time. I highly recommend this company. You will not be sorry if you hire them. Mike will be my go-to contracting company from now on!!
THIS IS AN UPDATE ON MARCH 26, 2014 - The kitchen cabinet doors were sent to a painting company for spray painting (because I had already started the kitchen job with the painting company) and were delivered at the beginning of the week. Mike and Fernando came back yesterday to install the doors and a pair of new drawers. They finished today, after installing the hardware (knobs and handles). Everything looks beautiful! It is like a brand new kitchen and I really could not be happier. Dealing with Mike and Fernando and Mike's wife, Joanna, was a true pleasure. If you are looking for a general contractor, you will not find a better one. They are professional and will work with you to give you what you want. Thanks for everything guys!!

Full Bathroom RENO

Mike and his team renovated our bathroom, house is 100 years old. Mike kept in touch with us hourly letting us know of his findings. All leaks were fixed ! We were able to live in the house during the renovation, (I have 2 small children). Mike pays attention to every detail and provides solutions and SOLVES them all. He is very professional and carried us through the reno.

Bad experience with previous contractors was stopping us from doing this reno. We should have hired Mike's team sooner. We are extremely happy with the end product.

kitchen reno

I was looking to have a custom kitchen renovation for my elderly mother. She knew she wanted a new kitchen but had little understanding of available products, finishes and what was involved in the renovation. We had several quotes however, the price range and work to be completed varied greatly. I was referred to Mike from someone who had a kitchen renovation. During our meeting, what made Mike stand out was his attention to detail, his knowledge, his thoroughness and his patience; there was no guessing what work was to be completed and the whole process was thought through. Mike and his crew answered and addressed all of my mothers questions and concerns and even let the dog out! The end result was a job started and completed on time with no additional surprise charges. The kitchen was beyond my mothers expectations. I've since had my own kitchen completed with the same outcome. If you've dealt with others, I would still highly recommend calling on Mike.

Bathrooms, Kitchen,

I would like to thank Mr. Mike and Joanna for the renovations they have done in my condo. I Had a small kitchen and two bathrooms to be redone, my powder room was small and I wanted to put in a shower inside many other contractors said no to me and/or gave me high quates. Mike and his crew not only put in the beautiful glass shower and redone my two bathrooms as well as they put new tiles in the hallway and they also did my kitchen with new french country look I wanted, Joanna and Mike was so great in doing all the research for me and they were very respectful with staying with in my budget. I want to thank them so much for the great job they've done on my condo.

Basement Renovation

Mike had done some work in the area and the feedback was quite positive, so we hired him to finish our basement renovation. Mike an Nello are very professional and we never encountered any surprises. They showed up on time every day and they finished the job as planned. They are a hard working crew and you won't be dissapointed.

NEW HOUSE - Swansea/Bloor West Village

We found Maralon Construction and Design on Homestars.com the week we were about to purchase our new house. We invited Mike to go over the house with us and discuss future renovations and works. The main reasons for selecting Maralon was their familiarity with the old homes in this neighbourhood ! and their prompt reply to our call. I cannot thank them enough for their time when we asked for help on short notice to inspect the house just as we were bidding on it. Mike assured us the house was in a good condition, this was an independent opinion off what the inspection said and supported the inspection. He clearly spelled out what renovations, timelines and costs are ahead of us. It has been 12 months since we moved in, haven't had any problems and periodically hire Maralon (MIke) to complete jobs for us (renovations etc.).

I cannot say enough about the professionalism and quality of work provided by Maralon.

Main floor renovation

Excellent work! Nello, Mike and their wonderful crew have done it again! This is the third project we have done together and it involved the full renovation of our main floor including gutting the kitchen and moving walls in our living area. The work was done on time, on budget and with meticulous precision. These are professionals whose advice and expertise you can rely on. I refer them to friends and family often and will continue to do so.
