Eitan was awesome to work with. He made everything simple where alot of other companies told me it couldn't be done, he did it and did it well. What was especially great about dealing with this company is that all their workers and employees are wonderful to talk to and work with. Great people overall. He tore down and completely rebuilt our above ground deck built a receding wall and a full outdoor kitchen.
After interviewing and receiving quotes from several Contractors, we had agreed to hire M.E. Contracting for our home renovations - we are happy we did! We had a good feeling about the company, right from the get go. Our first contact, Brenda, was friendly, informative, and may I add 'spunky', and was very open and quick to answer all our questions. We set up an appointment and within a couple of days, Eitan and his crew came to discuss the work we wanted done, and gave us a quote. It was obvious that he was experienced, and we felt that he was very open and honest with us in regards to cost and timeline. We were looking to renovate three bathrooms, replace all upstairs carpeting with laminate, replace the tile in kitchen and front hallway entrance, paint the upstairs and main floor, install ceiling fans in upstairs rooms, and etc. They sent a crew to our home headed by Ilan, who had awesome ideas to share, and was very quick to incorporate and discuss any ideas we had. Concerns that we had prior to, and during the renovations were promptly dealt with, and he made sure that we were always happy with the outcome. His workers were awesome, in particular Ryan, who was here almost every day, and was always willing to lend a hand if he found us doing something (thank you Ryan).
We happily signed on with ME Contracting as they could look after every aspect of our front yard renovation. Daryl provided us with a detailed drawing of the finished product and was a pleasure to work with. Sal and Kosta proved to be valuable assets to this company as well the men who worked alongside them. There were definitely a few challenges along the way but they were always dealt with immediately and to our great satisfaction. They also replaced without question our front yard lights even though they were not part of our contract. We have received many compliments from neighbours and friends. I would not hesitate recommending them to anyone looking to renovate any part of their home.
Project: coping around pool, perimeter wood fence, PVC deck with steel support, glass railings, basic lighting.
Timeline: started a week late. Moved quickly and concluded before winter.
Comment: We absolutely loved working with Daryl, Eitan and the team. Everyone was extremely responsive, helpful and resourceful. They played nicely with pool company (separate) and our home builder. Handled neighbors well. There was never a problem that they couldn't solve.
The project was concluded on budget. Any items that changed the cost were directly communicated before a decision was made.
Like others I selected M.E. Contracting based on their very positive reviews. I was not disappointed! Eitan, Brenda, Tomer and the rest of the team were very professional and did the work on budget and on time. This company does quality work that is well worth the cost.
The job included removal of an old deck and replacement of it with a new cedar deck and flagstone patio with a retaining wall and steps down to a garden. In addition, our aging front steps were replaced with a new cedar porch and steps. All of the workers were very respectful and tidy and even our neighbors noted how careful they were.
I found ME Contracting via HomeStars and selected them based on the positive HomeStars reviews as well as a price comparison with multiple other vendors.
I was undertaking a complete exterior overhaul of my home, so was looking for a company to handle all of the finishing touches for the project aside from the house itself. ME Contracting was appealing because they were a one-stop-shop that would coordinate multiple sub-projects: the install of the front step flagstone refinishing, back step install, the side gate install and the front and back railing installs. The fact that ME also coordinated the selection of materials and managed the delivery of materials and clean-up after each sub-project was also fantastic. All of the sub-trades that participated in the project were very pleasant and did excellent work.
Daryl, my project manager, was great to work with. He was very responsive, professional and worked with me to manage a complicated timeline given that the ME tasks needed to take place at different points during the broader project timeline. Even when the project ran into some minor challenges, Daryl was receptive to my feedback and handled the situation efficiently and professionally.
We hired M.E. Contracting this past summer to do some work in our backyard based on positive reviews here on Homestars. They removed all sod, built a retaining wall to level the back of our small suburban yard, addressed drainage issues, created a paving stone seating area and bbq area, make flagstone pathways and got all our garden beds plant ready.
We have been extremely happy with both the process of working with them and the results of the project. All M.E. staff we dealt with from start to finish were kind, professional and expert at their jobs. Brenda, who works in the front office, was always helpful and friendly and was very efficient at communicating timelines and answering questions. She replied to emails quickly, often within the hour. Eitan, the owner, met with us and took into consideration our needs and made helpful suggestions. Tomer was the contractor assigned to our project. He and his team were wonderful and we would work with them again in a heartbeat. They always communicated when they would be arriving and came to work on the project every day until it was done. They were courteous and professional in their work and always cleaned up before leaving for the day. Their work was excellent and they took the time to address concerns or preferences we communicated along the way, always making sure we were happy.
We hired ME this past summer (2015) to completely renovate our backyard, including a swim spa installation, outdoor kitchen, deck, stone patio and artificial turf. At every point, ME was responsive, professional and helpful. They were also very reasonably priced compared to other quotes we received. Daryl, our contractor, always got back to us quickly and was on top of things. The crews who came were talented and hardworking and came every day until the work was done. Special shout out re Sal, who did our stone and turf work and is absolutely amazing--we had an issue on a Saturday morning at one point and by Saturday afternoon he had come by and fixed it.
I would definitely recommend ME to anyone considering a renovation. We actually plan on using them again soon for an indoor project and then next year for landscaping our front.
Contacted ME Contracting based on the great reviews from Homestars and Houzz. Was not disappointed. The end result was awesome! They were a bit more expensive than some other companies I looked at, but you do get what you pay for. Daryl worked with our budget and came up with a very nice design to landscape our front steps, side walkway and backyard patio. Sal did an excellent job on the landscaping work. He listened to our ideas and gave some great ideas as well. The interlock looked awesome when he was done! We've also gotten a ton of complements from the neighbors. Sal is 100% dedicated to his work and it really shows in the quality of his workmanship. The landscaping job took about two weeks to complete. Sal was also very reachable and had no problems coming back a few times to fix up a some minor issues.
Our home is located on a corner lot and was in desperate need of a new fence. While searching through the internet, I came across a company by the name of M.E. Contracting. I read some of their reviews and thought to myself that it seemed too good to be true. I ended up calling M.E. Contracting and from the first initial contact with a lady by the name of Brenda through to the end of the work done on our black iron fence, I can truly say without a doubt that M.E. Contracting is the very best. Thank-you Eitan, Keren, and Brenda. Thank-you especially to Joe and his assistant Mark for the outstanding work that was done. Thank-you to Sal for the stone work that was done around the fence. They have transformed the look of our house and so many people have complimented the work that was done. The Home stars scale is from 1-10, I wish I could go higher than a 10+++++. In the future should we have any other work done, we will definitely have no hesitation in choosing M.E. Contracting. Thank-you to everyone. Most sincerely, Rose.
Hired ME Contracting to remove my old deck that came with the house and build a new larger better deck in its place. Process was smooth and easy, they had good ideas when we were first discussing plans and developing the estimate. I ended up changing my original plan to have a Cedar deck built in favour of a PVC deck with is very low maintenance. The work was done very professionally and looks amazing.
I would happily recommend ME Contracting to friends and family in the future.
From the moment we called to get a quote, everyone from this company was courteous, professional and timely. Daryl, provided very professional service and clear communication through email, over the phone, and in person. He was able to give us realistic time lines and met them exactly when he said! Sal, the foreman on the job, really takes pride in what he does because it showed in his work! He is skilled, professional and has a great sense of humour, which made us feel at ease. He was able to get the work completed before schedule! We could not believe his hard work and dedication to our job. Between them understanding what we wanted and Sal's suggestions, we were blown away with the results! Just blown away. He definitely went above and beyond!
With what we have experienced, you can tell this company takes pride in any job that they come across, small or large. You can't imagine how it felt to come home to a beautifully landscaped yard, beautiful lit staircase and porch. More than amazing!
ME Contracting took care of my entire project from concept, design, architectural drawings, city permit and to the final installation. They were professional, punctual and courteous the entire time. The project was a large deck, walking down to a stonework patio across a rather steep grade. This also included the removal of a deteriorating builders deck. The build time was quick and efficient. They were responsive, took care of cleaning and even helped me with a quick repair to the main gate that had become loose.
Eitan (Design, Consultation), Shimon (PVC Deck), Sal (Stone Patio), Brenda (Coordination) and everyone else (sorry if I missed anyone!) we worked with at ME Contracting was great! I would certainly recommend ME Contracting going forward and certainly for Phases 2+, I know who I'll be reaching out to.
Take the time to at least get ME Contracting out to look at your proposed project, you'll be pleasantly surprised at what they can do for you -- and how quickly. They're pros after all!
The work done by M.E Contracting was outstanding! We worked together in creating the design and made modifications while the work was in progress. Casey and Alex are perfectionists and took such amazing care in making sure everything was perfect. Also...they are the most pleasant guys and this definitely reflected on their crew, too.
Eitan and his crew are true professionals and are highly recommended by me to all my family and friends!
Very difficult today to find honest hard working and professional services, I am truly lucky to have chosen M.E Contracting for building our 700 SFT PVC deck with aluminium railings!!!!!
The job was handled on time and high quality work.
Simply amazing experience. Eitan and the team were beyond professional and the results speak for themselves. I can't wait to do the next project. Would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
Eitan came by our place to give us a quote on a new deck and what we ended up with was more than we had initially wanted. He replaced our old deck with an Azex deck with tempered glass railings. We spend many an evening in our "new" backyard and have ME Contracting to thank for it. Great job!
Eitan and the entire crew were very helpful and pleasure to deal with The finished backyard, deck and pergola is absolutely beautiful and everything we could ask for. Any issues that came up during the project were resolved professionally and they provided great suggestions when we were unsure of something. Overall we are very satisfied with the work that was done and the finished product. Brenda and Keren were also great to work with. Thank you very much M.E Contracting!
We just finished our backyard patio with ME Contracting.
The company is very professional and knowledgeable. We were dealing with Daryl, Keren and installation was done by Alex and his crew.
The communication was very good and prompt, all our concerns from design concept and through the process were solved. The good thing is installation started much faster than we expected, and it took about a week to finish everything. So we still have time to enjoy our new patio this year. We are glad that we added LED lights there, in the evening time looks very nice and useful.
It has been a pleasure dealing with ME Contracting. We would hire them again for future projects and also recommend them to our friends.
Absolutely amazing finished product re new stonework laid down for our front driveway. Our salesman, Daryl was knowledgeable and very helpful in picking the correct stone product for our home. He was very prompt in preparing a quote and in replying to all of my email questions, always polite and always giving careful thought when answering my design questions. The actual work, carried out by Sal and his crew, was first class! The stones were masterfully laid and Sal's suggestion, to install curbstones on each side of the driveway to deal with the varying grades, actually enhances the overall beauty of the newly laid stones. Sal and the crew were extremely skilled and efficient and very pleasant to deal with!! I will definitely use them again for any future outdoor projects. I highly recommend this company to others.
Absulotly in love with my back yard!
I have to say that M.E. Contracting worked at my back yard so professional, fast and absolutely stunning..
Every crew is specialized in something, crew for deck, crew for stone work and for the pool.
Eitan! Thank you so much for letting me sleep at night for such a big project. Good job:)
Second project with the M E Contacting crew. Sal did a great job as always to remove our old and construct a new and beautiful landscaping design. We are very pleased with the results.
ME Contracting is amazing and highly recommend them for any landscaping project. from the beginning to the end, they were professional and on time, everything was done so fast and I couldn't believe it.
Everyone at M.E Contracting was very professional.
Project was on time. Workers were great. Respectful, hard working. The whole crew were a pleasure to deal with
Have already recommended them to friends
We contacted M.E. Contracting for a quote for a basement renovation that included demolition and disposal of flooring, ceilings, etc and complete renovation including drywall ceilings, lightening, flooring and the creation of an office space with double doors.
Tomer was very knowledgeable about the service when showed up for a the first visit and gave us a very clear and specific quote.
After we hired the company for the job, they started punctually on the set date and although my wife and I made a few changes along the way of the project, Tomer managed to attend all that and also finished in time. The basement looks great and we are already planning on hiring M.E. Contracting for another job in our house late this summer.
We recently hired M.E. Contracting for an interior renovation on the second floor of our new home, which involved the creation of a third bedroom. From the beginning, Eitan, Illan and their crew worked with us to deliver exactly what we wanted, within the quoted budget. The crew was respectful of our property, and ensured we were completely satisfied with the end result, working long hours to complete the job. Illan, in particular, went above and beyond by helping us move furniture around the house and install small items. They were always very helpful, and we appreciated the staff's high quality workmanship and skill. Keren and Brenda, who work in the office, were also very responsive with any issues, and ensured our needs were taken care of. We highly recommend their team for any house renovations or repairs.
We recently contacted M.E. Contracting for a complete renovation on a very small bathroom. The initial discussion showed that Eitan understood what we wanted - a really nice and practical result within a reasonable budget. The work began and ended exactly on time and budget; every day the site was completely tidied and we were consulted on all aspects. In the case of a couple of call-backs, the team was very responsive. We love the results. In the 35 years that we have lived in our house, we have undertaken six renovations - this seventh was about the best experience we have had! I do recommend M.E. Contracting.
Last year the ME contracting team put in a lovely stone paved driveway and stairs for us. Ethan and the team are good communicaters and gave us very good guide lines and advice on choices and color schemes too. This year there was a minor repair necessary - 2 stones were loose on the stairs and they came in and fixed it without any problem.
M.E. Contracting is a solid company that delivers as promised. There staff have a great amount of skill and knowledge and produce very high quality workmanship.
They are fast clean and respectful of property.
I would choose them again for because of there high standards.
This was our best renovation experience to date! Everyone we dealt with from start to finish was amazing. The pride in workmanship was impeccable. The pricing was fair and clear explained throughout and they were done on the exact date they told us....unheard of! We would recommend or hire them again in an instant! Thank you Sal and team.
We interviewed three deck companies for our project. We eliminated one company and had two quotes. Both were very similar in price. We chose to work with Eitan and MC. Eitan was very knowledgeable, trustworthy and competent. We felt we were in good hands. We made several changes during construction without any issues, complaints or additional costs. His crews were excellent tradesman, polite, willing to suggest changes for a better result and would make changes we wanted. Some add ons which Eitan could have charged a lot for were charged only at material and time. No question, if I had another project, we would hire this team of professionals. Project was PVC Wood, glass and metal railings, lighting. Meet with Eitan to learn yourself how trustworthy and competent this company is.
It was a pleasure dealing with all members of the M.E. team. The work was completed quickly and the workmanship was excellent.
I would recommend M.E. Contracting with total confidence. You will not be disappointed. Thank you to Konstantin, Alex and the rest of the M.E. team.
They started on one of the coldest day of year so far. They poured the cement one day and came back 3 days later and built our deck. Deck is well built and when we need them to change one section they came back and did it with no questions asked. They removed all their garbage and were polite. Only issue was lack of drawings for the design of the deck prior to starting. Other than that I would use ME Contracting again for my landscaping/decking needs
professional, fast and excellent workmanship. Great experience and value for the dollar! Everyone we dealt with was excellent - definitely will have them back! We love our new deck & fence. it looks awesome!
After meeting with nearly a dozen different contractors, we decided to choose ME Contracting because we just "had a good feeling".
Eitan's team are the most professional contractors I've ever worked with - they started daily at 7am like clockwork, they were polite, clean and efficient. The materials delivered were top notch (no cheap crap) and their workmanship is incredible.
While their price was slightly higher than other quotes, you pay for what you get, and ME Contracting delivered what they promised. These guys really take pride in their work to deliver quality. Our backyard has transformed into the Oasis we imagined.
From a fellow renovator to another.. stop searching and just hire these guys! You will not regret it.
After seeking the advice of many fencing companies, we finally chose ME Contracting. They came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. Despite waiting many weeks to have the job completed, the final product was worth it.
The customer service provided by Eithan and Keren was second to none and we will definitely use them for our upcoming landscaping projects.
Outstanding work. All workers were highly professional. The deck, including a spa, was built to perfection.
All work coordinated without a hitch.
We have ended up with a magnificent deck, to our complete satisfaction.
I had a very bad experience with my previous contractor interlocking my driveway. Within 2 years, it was wavy and everything was falling apart. So I reached out to Homestars and found ME Contracting. I am glad I did, throughout the whole project I asked million questions. Because I got bad experience before I was very cautious. ME Contracting team was very patient and answer every question I had and made sure I was comfortable throughout the project.
They had assign Sal and team for my project. I was so happy, I had Sal working on my project. He was a perfectionist. He was not only on time, tidy, honest and friendly. He treated my project like it was his own. Every morning he would ask me what he is going to do that day, and every afternoon he would wait until I come home from work and walk through what he has done on that day, if anything needed to be changed. Every concern I had or things I don't like. He has changed and fix to beyond my expectation. Not only our family loved him, even our neighbours miss having him around.
After the project is done, I have already had so many compliments on how good the driveway / patio looks now.
Eitan and his crew did a phenomenal job transforming our backyard into a functional outdoor space. Eitan was great at advising on layout and design. We had cedar deck with glass railings, horizontal cedar fencing and stone patio installed in our backyard as well, we had new flagstone front stairs, and interlock in our driveway repaired. They were professional, timely and used quality materials. We had all the work done in May and it took only 2 weeks. We were able to really enjoy our backyard this summer!
The dream team have done a marvelous job! We aimed to turn our backyard into a real useful space and the dream team have really worked their magic. They have worked the project from start to finish, including design, detailed quoting (other companies provided high level estimates -- don't fall for that) and lightning fast implementation. Besides the amazing attention to detail, we never had to worry that they will work part-time on our project. The entire backyard was transformed in about eight days! others told us it could take up to 2 months. M.E Contracting cleared out our backyard, prepped the site and installed a composite two-level deck, with storage under the deck, complex patio with borders and granite stones, new grass with irrigation system, and an amazing glass railing system. They left not an ounce of dirt and responded the next day when I wanted them to fix a couple of minor things (replace a drain).
We wanted to build a deck that would last us a long time. We also didn't want to have the headache of having to move all of our furniture and re-stain our deck every few years. We ended up going with M.E. Contracting after getting quotes from a few different builders.
I can say with confidence that once they started the job, it was done in approx 3 days and it was all done to spec. From the holes that were dug for the sonnet tubes, to the pressure treated wood for the framing to the beautiful finish of the deck itself, it could not have gone smoother once they started.
Our deck is approx 450 square feet and is built with azek for the base and aluminum railing all around. It turned out better than we could have imagined and we've used it non stop.
My only concern was that we didn't get this done sooner in the year to enjoy it more this summer, but there's always next summer!
Very impressed with the service and quality of work. A pleasant, professional and knowledgeable group. Gave us great suggestions. Were absolutely true to their word and completed the job quickly and efficiently. Highly recommend M.E Contracting!
After reviewing Homestars, and getting a few quotes, we hired Eitan and his team to landscape both our front and back yard. This included clearing out everything that was there before ie. an old deck, sidewalks in need of repair, exterior stairs in need of repair etc. Grading was improved, new stone patio and sidewalks installed, new staircase, sodding, planting, re-routing downspouts etc. Everything looks fantastic and we have received many compliments. Very impressed. Highly recommended.
The workmanship is first class. The city building inspector said he has not seen such a well built deck in many years.
They keep you informed of what they are doing, complete the job fast and do not go over their agreed price.
I am so impressed with this company.
We needed all of the stonework outside our home replaced: two walkways, a porch, and a driveway extension / retaining wall. M.E. Contracting did a fabulous job. We received estimates from numerous contractors, and M.E.'s price was very fair. We chose them based on their experience and positive reviews. We were not disappointed! Eitan and Karen were great to deal with - Karen was very responsive, answered and returned calls diligently. She went out of her way to ensure our scheduling needs were accommodated, which was so nice. Eitan was able to find beautiful stone that fit within our budget and reflected the look we were trying to achieve. Most notably, the workers who were on-site every day were incredible - professional, hard-working and extremely nice. These guys were a total pleasure to deal with and happily accommodated our requests throughout the construction phase. We are very pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the final look of our front yard. It really transforms the house! Would recommend M.E. Contracting to anyone!
My wife I want to thank Tomer of M. E. Contracting for the great job you and your team did on our backyard. We’re extremely happy with the result, as well with the speed, professionalism, and work ethic your team demonstrated during the process.
At one point, there was a small issue with the electrical to the garage being cut by mistake. I’ve dealt with a lot of reno over the past couple of years and I must say that I’ve had a very hard time getting people to fix things that they’ve done wrong, if they would even do it at all. Many times, they’ve even tried to charge me for their own mistakes. I texted Tomer about it and, without any hesitation, he solved the problem exactly when he said he would. Though it may be hard to believe, it's too rare a quality in this industry.
Again, we’re thrilled with the work M. E. Contracting has done and will not hesitate to recommend them to any of our friends considering having work done. Thank you for everything.
I found M.E. Contracting on Homestars based on their reviews. I was very impressed by the work.I have a very large backyard and wanted to have a pool put in. I had a meeting with Eitan and found him to be extremely knowledgeable. He helped me design my dream backyard.I had a pool put in with a with a PVC Deck around 800 sq feet, I also had interlocking stone through out my yard. Overall it was a fantastic experience and I will recommend ME Contracting to all my friends.
I would recommend M.E.Landscaping 100%. Although it took time to get in their schedule, Keren, Eitan, Tomer and crew were easy to work with and delivered beyond my expectations. My downtown property presented many challenges, which were further complicated by City of Toronto water main replacement crews reducing access to the property during the project. I am very happy with the results and many thanks for keeping things in budget and on schedule.
I want to take this time to thank Eitan and the team at ME Contracting for the great work they did on this project, also a special thanks for the excellent customer support Keren provided throughout!
They Kept all commitments including start time (exceeded), time to complete and cost.
ME Contracting is definitely a company I would use again and highly recommend both for the great workmanship, attention to client concerns, commitment to meeting all expectations and above all customer support.
Thanks Again to Eitan and Team!
I saved up some money to finally be able to do something with my backyard. I've got a very picturesque backyard overlooking a ravine in Rosedale that I wanted to remodel. I called M.E. contracting as it was recommended from a friend. Eitan and his team built a beautiful cedar gazebo with a flagstone entrance and wonderful foliage along the pathway. Now my backyard is a perfect setting for hosting my monthly bookclub meetings and family gatherings. I am so delighted with their craftsmanship and I would highly recommend hiring Eitan and his team to do your job too!
I would like to say a big thank you for the hard work and excellent service m.e contracting provided us this past year when they built our deck and outdoor kitchen. the work went very well even when there were some things that we didnt plan for, the crew was fast and to the point with all the people and machinery coming and going on time. bottom line, recommended company.
