Eaves Trough and Chimney Masonry

I required new eaves troughs, down pipe and leaf guards, as well as masonry work and caulking on my chimney.
After getting estimates I chose McLellan Contracting. I discussed these issues with John and he set my mind at peace. His employees treated my home as if their own, they are very conscientious and personable.
Some of the issues we had required them to think outside of the box.
I couldnt be happier with the repair and the results.
This company would definitely be my first choice on any future repairs or maintenance.

Support Beams and Siding

Called McLellan for some work on my support post footings and siding/soffit. Teams that came out were incredibly professional and did outstanding work. John was a pleasure to work with and his team did a great job of communicating a great schedule to get the job done. Will definitely call them again for future jobs.

Knowledgeable, Friendly and Professional

John came out personally to our home after a neighbour recommended him and I reached out. There are several issues with bad waterproofing of our siding and windows, and we had water dripping through the basement windows. He addressed several things, gave us a quote, and had his team come out as scheduled. He was very thorough and knows his stuff. I highly recommend him as the guy to call!

Excellent Customer Service

Very professional experience. John took extra time to help us address a water leak into our basement which we really appreciate. That attention to detail and a willingness to help problem solve the issue gets our full recommendation. We will be reaching out for future work based on our experience with this company.

Renovation

John and his team of professionals did renovations to my home required due to shoddy workmanship by the previous owner. This work included a major floor levelling project that required removal of doors, vanities, kitchen cabinets etc. and then reinstalling all these items. Work on a deck gazebo and other jobs were required to ensure all building code requirements were met.

I was very impressed with all the work they did.

John and all of his team were very polite, explained what they needed to do and responded to all my questions. They always cleaned up well afterwards.

I would highly recommend John McLellan Contracting Inc. for any contracting work.

More than just a window replacement

Im so happy I hired John McClellan Contracting Inc. to replace the front window of my home. Its an old house and I wanted it to blend with the older windows that were still part of the front façade in another area. The entire team from start to finish was incredible. I cant stop raving about the work theyve done. I love my new window. I love how well they made it blend with the old windows and I love they were able to save the trim from the interior. All my wants and needs were met & the quality and professionalism far exceeded my expectations which were already very high. I wont hesitate to contact this company for any future projects. thank you for making what could have been a stressful experience so fun and enjoyable.

Fix siding and add faux window

We hired a previous company to fix the siding and replace a faux window in the front of our house. However, they were extremely unprofessional and misrepresented themselves. They said they could replace our faux windows, but they didn't know how to do windows so we ended up with a hack job.

After calling over 20 different companies, we found John McLennan Contracting, and it was a completely different experience. John and his crew are experienced and really know what they're doing. From our experience, they have the means to do whatever you need done on your home. Windows? Siding? Repairs? Interior? Exterior? Great. They made it happen for us.

They did a wonderful job on the faux window and fixed the hack job siding. Now the front of our home looks like what we wanted in the first place. If only we would have found them first!

I highly recommend this company. Professional, experienced, and great work. Overall, an excellent experience!

Thanks John.
