Second story addition. Main floor Reno

They were fantastic to deal with. Dejan was excellent and always took the time to assist us and follow up to make sure things were done efficiently and on time. Any little problem we came across he ensured it was resolved promptly. The workers from every trade that came in to the house were courteous and professional. This has been a great experience and we are thrilled with our new home

2nd storey and side addition

We met Bole in 2017 to get an idea how much it will cost to build a 2nd storey and side addition. We were explained about all the steps how the project will be accomplished, cost was very detailed and clear. We were not ready yet to start the project, we were also concerned about run-away companies, not completing the work on time etc. We felt confident about Modular. We started the project in October 2019 (yes we took long time to make this decision) We met Rahele, Rick Dan, Beli everyone was available to answer any question. It was a very nice journey with Modular. Our project was completed without any gap, problem or argument. Thank you very much Team Modular Home Additions (esp. thanks to Rick Bonger for being patient and extra helpful) for your professional, honest and courteous service.

First, we would like to thank you for the full 10! Great to get them. We laughed about the "run-away companies" which are, unfortunately, part of the industry and there might be even more of those due to the situation we are all in.
Confidence in a contractor and a good rapport are crucial when deciding on who will you hire for the job. That is why we are trying to explain everything related to the renovations, which many of our clients never did before. Knowing what to expect and understanding that it might be a bumpy road ahead, makes the process much easier and more fulfilling. Thank you again for your nice words.
Sincerely
Modular Team

Second Story Addition

We are so pleased with how everything went with our second story addition. From start to completion of the project we felt like we were in good hands with Modular; they are incredibly professional, as were all their trades. Modular was in constant contact with us at each step of the reno, so we never felt we were left out of the loop. The project came in almost on budget and any changes were clearly communicated to us so there were no surprises at the end. Dejan, our project manager, was very easy to deal with and would answer any questions we had with patience and clarity. We did hit a few bumps in the road, but they were resolved very quickly to our satisfaction. The owner of the company, Dule, was on hand whenever necessary, which was wonderful. We really appreciated all their hard work and have already recommended them to a number of people in our neighbourhood who are looking to do the same thing. We can't say enough good things!

Megan THANK YOU.
It is always a pleasure replying to the reviews like this. We are pleased that you are happy with our approach to projects and despite a few "bumps". It is expected to have them and there is so many ways if dealing with them. For us at Modular, best way is to cooperate with the client and "iron" them out. Being available for our clients is our job.
Thank you again from all of us.

Wonderful Experience: Quality Team. Excellent Results

Dule and his team at Modular Homes Additions were wonderful to work with. Aside from being good and honest people, they also have incredible work ethic. We hired them for a very large renovation that kept only a single existing wall - practically a new build. They produced quality results, with speed and precision, and were a delight during the process. They kept us informed about progress, made suggestions for improvements and were transparent with us right from the start. Even when we wanted to make changes, they delivered with ease.

From beginning to end, we felt understood and supported, clear about cost and timelines, and always felt like the lines of communication were open. It was like working with friends. This team has integrity. When it comes to something as important as your home, that is of the utmost importance.

Ultimately, they helped turn our vision for our dream home into a reality, and we are so pleased we chose them for this milestone in our lives. We would not hesitate to refer them, or hire them again in future. Thank you Dule & team!

Thank you for this great review.
It seems that more and more people are mentioning honesty that is apparently a virtue hard to find these days.
Money, profit, positions... are taking place in front of the real values.

Being transparent and informative about the process and the costs involved in any given project was of utmost importance to the Modular team, from the beginning. Helping our clients to achieve their goals, helped us build the company that we have today. Without client appreciation and understanding of the process, cooperation with us during the renovation, Modular wouldn't be able to develop insight into what are the important things for our clients. A renovation like any other relationship is a two-way street. Thank you for pointing out that our openness and friendly approach are appreciated.
Thank you again from the whole Modular team.

Main floor Reno in East York

Dule, Dan and their team completely gutted my entire main floor and opened up and modernized the layout, added a great new walk out to back and new windows. They were fast, very skilled and knowledgeable, and most of all.....honest and fair priced. There were no surprises. They were also very clean, which is great when you’re living through a renovation.

Very happy with the result. 100% I’ll use them again and would recommend to anyone.

Second floor addition to Bungalow

I used Modular to add a second floor to our bungalow. The experience was very positive. Modular offered a positive alternative to most other general contractors we spoke to:
1. They are honest and realistic - They do a good job about setting expectations.
2. Patient and no pressure - in our case, we took a long time to make decisions, and they worked with our timeline.
3. They work quickly - They are organized, and make sure the work is done as quickly as realistically.
4. Clean - They do a good job making sure the site is clean and free of clutter where and when possible.

I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Short and sweet!
Thank you very much for pointing all the right things that people are looking for when hiring the contractor for their renovations.
We are doing the best we can to explain to people what can and cannot be expected during the whole process of the renovation. At the first meeting when rough estimate is made we might "kill" a lot of expectations that were based on the wishes, magazine clippings and talk with friends. It is unfortunate but necessary to present the real figures before the project starts. If the client decide to work with our designers and architects, the final quote shouldn't deviate much from the original estimate, since the designer will know what was requested and discussed at the original meeting, hence no surprises when the job starts.
Over twenty years in construction we learned what the clients are looking for and what they do expect from us. It is easy to do the good job when you are appreciated and when you work for good people.
Thank you once again from all of us at Modular.

Great builder, amazing people.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Modular Home Additions. We met them 2 years ago as we were looking for a contractor to do an addition on our Beaches bungalow. After many frustrating meetings, our first meeting with Modular was refreshing. They gave us ballpark numbers on the spot, no pressure, full honesty. I asked for examples of homes they had done and without blinking they handed me a list full of homes in my area.

Every step of the way they have been transparent, efficient and just an absolute pleasure to deal with. They don't cut corners and are meticulous about their work. When they did demolition they tarped my house every day and swept my driveway.

They are a no excuses organization, they expect excellent work from their employees and always made it right if we wanted changes.

Ultimately and most importantly, they are good people. We had difficulties with the city and other trades not connected to them and they came out and helped us. They didn't have to, but they did because that's the kind of people they are.

We are so happy with their work that when our neighbour decided to do the same work we told them they had to go with Modular and they did. We can't wait to watch the work start next door.

First I would like to thank you for posting such a nice review of Modular. As we mentioned in our replies to our clients so many times, transparency is one of the key ingredients in dealing with such an expensive and important thing as a renovation. Trusting the strangers with your home and hard earned money is unnerving and in order to gain the trust we have to be open and straightforward with our clients. We do not see the other way of sustaining the reputation that we build. Twenty one year of building dreams for our clients, over a thousand homes, had to teach us something. Your and many other reviews are confirming that we in fact learned to respect and appreciate our clients and the trust they invest in us.
Thank you again from all of us at Modular.

Bungalow to 3-story home

Modular built us a great home and were good to work with. Things we appreciated about working with them:
- high quality work
- realistic timelines
- clear pricing structure with minimal variances (and did everything possible at their end to minimize cost changes to us when one of their suppliers had to change)
- quick to take responsibility for and fix any error that was found
- flexibility in tweaking plans as needed (e.g. adding an inset phone charging shelf in one wall)
They have a good system and are reliable to work with. We have recommended them to friends who are considering building up.

Thank you very much for pointing out the things that are most important for all homeowners that are contemplating the renovation. Quality, realistic timelines, clear and accurate budgeting, responsibility, and reliability.
The system that Modular has developed throughout the years is derived from experience with clients and learning what are the most important things to them. It is our goal to have as many happy clients as possible.
Thank you from all of us.

Second Storey Addition

When looking for contractors to build our second storey addition, we met with a few contractors who quoted us with sky-rocket prices and very long timelines. We decided to go with Modular for 3 reasons: 1) Their cost estimates are very detailed and transparent, 2) their timeline durations were reasonable with 4-6 months in construction in addition to the whole permit process and 3) our family could continue to live in the home during renovation, which was very important for us.

From the beginning, we worked with Bole who provided us a detailed cost estimate for each phase of work. I appreciated how they broke down their work into phases and explained each line item to me. I can't say enough about this process because no other contractor we dealt with, was this transparent about everything. This really helped us with the decision making process, because we knew were we could make adjustments when trying to stay within our budget.

Modular took care of the all the surveys, permits and inspections required. This is another reason to go with Modular because they support your project from end-to-end; no need to deal with separate architects or planners or dealing with the City.

Throughout the project, we worked with Rahele to cost out and select all our finishes. Rahele was great to work with and very patient with my endless amount of questions and she would personally walk me through all her calculations. During construction, when things would come up, which was expected given the age of our home, Modular was very open about the additional costs and Rahele would create change orders to our original contract. There were never unexpected costs or charges, because these change orders would need to be approved by us as the homeowners before that work was completed.

Our permit process began in late 2019/early 2020 and construction began in July 2020. The second storey was completed and our family was able to move into the second storey by October 2020. In only 4 months, Modular gave us a new home! Main floor renovations continued as we moved into the second floor and that was completed in another 2 months. Their original estimate of 4-6 months was correct …. When does a contractor's original estimates ever hold true?? In Modular's case, they held true to their word.

Modular has different crews for the different phases of work, so we worked closely with Beli, Dejan and Dule. The team is made up of experienced professionals and we always felt safe in their hands, knowing they would complete excellent workmanship and provide good advice. The crews were always hardworking, arriving early every day and working non-stop throughout the day. The teams were reliable and would be there when they said they would.

All of our neighbours were impressed with the speed of construction and how much we were able to accomplish in 6 months, given everything going on with COVID. We already have a couple neighbours who are getting estimates from Modular because we cannot say enough good things about the team. Thank you Modular!

Thank you very much for such a detailed and long :-) review of the whole process that we together went through. In Modular, everything is done to make the renovations as easy as possible for our clients. Different department, different people and skills, however, with the same goal. Making our clients as happy as we possibly can. It's not just because we are good people (and we are:-) but because we know that only than we, as a company, can sustain the status and number of projects that we need to stay in business for many years to come.
Open, fair, professional, courteous and friendly are some of the things that we believe are important in dealing with people that vested their trust in us.
Thank you again from all of us at Modular for a great review and yet again highest score for the work we done!

2nd Story Addition and Main Floor Reno

We interviewed 3 contractors for the reno, and chose Modular. 2 of the contractors threw out high level estimates without much backup to the estimates, but Modular's costing template is open book and activity based; some items are based on sq footage, some linear foot, how many pot lights, type of windows etc, it's a very detailed agreement, and as an accountant I appreciate. I would probably say that was the most important factor to making my final decision. They also have a pretty cool web portal with WBS, milestone achievements and a forum to record all our conversations (everything on paper for both parties to make sure communication is completely open, aligned and not forgotten with a phone conversation or a bunch of emails).

We added 2/3 of our main floor footprint in the second level, adding 2 bedrooms, walk through closet and new bathroom. This required new furnace, a/c, plumbing and hvac. On the main floor we replaced the floors, the kitchen, one bathroom, and repainted the walls.

The roof demo, new 2nd story walls and roof was very quick, shingles, stucco and eaves followed shortly after. I have a shared drive way and the contractors were courteous to my neighbour. The project manager was quick to respond if anything came up, and remained professional throughout the process. The reno was mostly done the week before covid lock down, their cleaning crew came through and made the house very clean, which was nice for us to start moving our furniture back in. There were a few small follow up issues (as there always are), Modular was very good with communication through covid lock down, and everything was resolved.

I liked everyone I worked with at Modular, the workmanship was excellent and we're very happy with our new home. Thank you!
