A few of our Happy Clients
Make a list of the work that is required, and indicate the characteristics of the project. Go and see a designer or an architect to discuss your plans – they can help you to create a space that will suit your existing home, your needs and your budget (detailed plans and sketches also help us to prepare a more accurate quote). There are several interior designers & architects who we can recommend to you.
For inspiration, why not check out the Ideabooks on our Houzz page?
We will come out to discuss the project details with you.
We will gather quotes and prices from suppliers and sub-trades such as plumbers and electricians (they may require a ‘walk-through’ meeting at the property, so that they can fully understand the work involved).
We will provide you with a detailed quote, listing each area of work separately – this allows you to see exactly what is being included, and gives you the ability to make any amendments to it before we proceed any further.
Once you are happy to proceed we can draw up a contract (based on the finalized quote). The contract will re-iterate exactly what work is being done and will specify the payment terms (usually an initial payment is due at the signing of the contract).
We schedule a time to start your project, apply for any necessary permits (if applicable) and then the work begins!
During the stages of work we will keep you informed of any issues that occur so that they can be resolved quickly. If you decide that you need to change certain aspects of the project while it is in progress we will always try to accommodate this, depending on the individual circumstances (and costs) involved.
Work is completed to your satisfaction, the job site is cleared so that you can start to use your new space, and we receive our final payment.
Pat McCarthy Renovations did a wonderful job with an upstairs renovation of a bedroom and bathroom. The work was done promptly and the quality of the work was excellent. The tiling was done beautifully and some nice finishing touches were done around the soaker tub.
This company also organized replacement of heating pipes. The job was done quickly, very well and the price was very good. The workmen were always polite and considerate.
Pat and his crew were FANTASTIC!!! They were courteous, polite and GOOD at what they did. The trades that Pat brought in worked seamlessly with each other and all had the same high work ethic and standards. We renovated our entire main floor, kitchen, living room, etc.
The craftsmanship was beautiful. They were perfectionists and it showed! Pat ensured we were as close to completion date as possible. When minor issues arose, Pat was on it and provided a fast fix. We would use him again and we HIGHLY recommend Pat McCarthy Renovations!
I hired Pat McCarthy Renovations to finish my basement. The project was done quickly, neatly, and professionally.
A year later my family and I are thrilled with the end result. Pat was great to deal with and easy to get ahold of. The project was done within the specified time and within the quoted budget. I would highly recommend Pat McCarthy Renovations for any home reno project. Highly satisfied.
We have hired Pat McCarthy Renovations Ltd. on several occasions to complete various renovation projects including exterior work, kitchen, bathroom and basement.
Pat is very professional, provides an honest opinion and always comes in on budget.
I have recommended PMR to several people who have also been pleased with their results.
