Testimonials

Here is what our clients are saying:

We chose McCuaig Construction because we prefer to hire locally, and we wanted a professional job done. We needed to find someone we could count on. We found all of that in McCuaig Construction. From our initial meeting with Steve, through to the finished product, we felt we were on solid ground. We signed a contract and were kept informed of the team’s progress every step of the way. In the end, they did a beautiful job at the quoted price. What more could we ask?

Thanks for all of your great work and professionalism, and putting up with my cat, I'm not familiar with any of the construction world so you made it easy on me.

I was impressed with McCuaig Construction from the moment that I looked at their website. From the very detailed walk through of the work that was required, to the proposal with the various options, to the detailed contract and then to the completion of the project my initial opinion of Steve McCuaig has never changed. Steve`s professionalism, honesty and work ethic are unparalled.

We contracted Steve to do a tricky job of completely restoring two decks on either end of our veranda, the removal of our old basement entry door and fabrication of a new door. We were entirely satisfied with the high quality of work done which was within budget and on time. As with all renovations to older homes, there is the inevitable arising! With each challenge Steve tackled them head on. He informed us ahead of time of his plan and completed the repairs without fanfare. Indeed our problems arose because of a poor design which Steve corrected giving us better decks and a superior much easier to open door. We would not hesitate to recommend McCuaig Construction for any job big or small.

We hired McCuaig Construction to undertake a major expansion and renovation of our house in Revelstoke, British Columbia starting in 2009. We were very satisfied with the work that was done. Steve has a very high level of professionalism and attention to detail. At all times he kept us informed of how the work was progressing, held regular meetings with us to review the budget, and made sure we were well informed about the project. The quality of the workmanship was extremely high, and we have been very happy with the final product. I would highly recommend McCuaig Construction for other construction projects

As a commercial Interior Designer for the past 13 years - designing and implementing hundreds of Federal Government projects in Vancouver and around the province of BC, I know a thing or two about choosing a contractor. I encounter 'handy men' trying to sell their abilities to unsuspecting clients all the time. Steve is a professional contractor. When I decided to screen in my own patio, I knew I wanted to contract Steve McCuaig. I had seen his work around town and as soon as I had a project I hoped he was available. The good ones are usually busy! He built exactly what I wanted. He offered up a couple of suggestions that allowed me to save money on materials and we've been enjoying our screened in patio ever since. Professionals do it right the first time. They give a price and stick to it. They are able to qualify for insurance and building permits. They do the job in the estimated time frame and they stand behind their work. We really miss Steve here in Revelstoke!!

Steve McCuaig is our Mike Holmes. He has worked on 3 projects for us. He installed a tiled shower, renovated our family room and rebuilt a porch including steps. Steve is very attentive to the quality of his workmanship. His expertise and knowledge are reflected in the end product. He is very concerned about "doing it right". His estimate was as accurate as one would expect and any new costs or complications were explained thoroughly. We had no surprises in the end. We would not hesitate to recommend McCuaig Construction for any renovation project and we will probably use his services again

The table Steve designed and built for our office is the centrepiece of our boardroom. It is expertly crafted from birch and built to complement other furniture in the boardroom and reception area. A superb job done on a timely basis for a very reasonable price.

It was a pleasure having Steve renovate our old house, and we recommend him to anyone without hesitation. In fact, we considered ourselves very fortunate to have Steve organize and build our project. From start to finish he was professional and hardworking. He has excellent craftsmanship and problem solving skills, and has a keen eye for details. It was clear to us that Steve made a point of doing things properly, and we were never concerned about him taking short cuts or cutting corners. It was obvious that he truly cared about his work. He also handled all our building supply orders and negotiated with sub-contractors on our behalf. He finished the project on time and within our budget; it was perfect! He made our major renovation job exciting and enjoyable. If you can get him to work on your project, you will not be disappointed.

I was very pleased with the work that Steve did when he replaced the front deck and steps. He obtained the proper materials quickly after he gave me a clear quote for the job. He said that the deck and steps would have to be slightly different because of a change in the construction rules. I asked about the changes and he gave me a clear answer to my questions. I am happy that he did the work well and quickly without any inconvenience for me

In hiring Steve and his help last year it was a privilege to have worked with him. Steve after being shown the work to be given to him; came back with his contract bid well laid out. He is very articulate in his planning in how he is going to tackle the work. Steve McCuaig and his help came on board in the summer of 2009. There was a massive amount of repair work needed to bring the exterior and interior of our building to fire code and repair. Steve professionally approached all areas of his work in a worthy manor so as not to waste time, material or money. His quotes were true to cost. If there was a problem that was not seen beforehand he would walk me through it and we would together decide what to do. He itemized everything neatly in a very organized way so that you had no problem seeing where funing was spent or hours needed. But not only is he polished in what he does as far as information; the work he did unsupervised was excellent, so in this I have no problem recommending his to any site that wants a good carpenter who knows and cares about what he does when it comes to his craft. When the building inspector is happy, so are we.

Hey Steve .. I can't tell you the number of times when it was just a-pissin' outside that I wanted to write and say thanks for the roof repair. The deck has been great!

The service was timely, efficient and tailored to fit my needs rather than the needs of the company. The completed project far exceeded my expectations. It increased the value of the home, but it also increased my enjoyment of my home. Being able to relax in a place without fear of leaks has reduced my stress level exponentially. The employees of McCuaig Construiction were always courteous and careful ...and friendly. If I had a question about their work they were always ready with an explanation. And neat .. I wouldn't mind bringing them back to clean up my messes.
