Re: MCK Construction, Montrose extension.
Sep - Dec 2010. Bungalow extension, addition of a bedroom, en-suite & utility room and internal alterations to accommodate this. Install full gas central heating to replace current electric storage heating.
Tom was the only builder who spent time discussing build and design options with us (Other builders just made a quick site visit to check access). He offered suggestions and asked for clarification on numerous points, ensuring we would get the design and finish we wanted and that his quote would be accurate. He was open and honest about a starting date and overall build timescales, and the build was completed within a week of the quoted date.
Started on the agreed date. Progress was made at a good pace, and Tom kept us informed about which parts of the build would be carried out in which order. He even scheduled specific parts of the build at times to suit us. The only time work stopped (even for a day) was when the weather took over!
The quality of the materials used during the build were excellent (even down to the door handles complementing those elsewhere in the house). Both internal and external finishing’s are of a very high quality. Several problems occurred during the build, but Tom managed all aspects of this and ensured we were aware of any changes. The Building Control officer passed all works on his first site visit.
The house and garden were cleared of debris once the job was completed. We had a couple of minor issues after starting to use the extension, but in both cases Tom remedied the problems very quickly.
Toms quote was very competitive, thorough and included all the specific points we had discussed during his initial visit. By the end of the build, the only additional costs to us were for three items that had been changed by the Building Control Officer during the approval process. Upon request , Tom provided a breakdown of payments for use prior to the start of the build.
We are very happy with the extension. Both the quality of work and design choices are as good as we expected (and we had high hopes!).
Tom, personally was excellent. From his initial visit, through the build and beyond he has always made himself personally available to us. He ensured minimal delays during the build and pushed the tradesmen he used to be available to suit his build schedule.
In summary, I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone looking for someone to manage their build or undertake general joinery work. I would be happy to provide a further verbal reference if required.

Re: Dormer Bathroom extension
I am writing to thank you for the work your company carried out on our Bathroom Dormer Extension.
The professionalism and standard of work, as well as the attention to detail during this project, was very commendable.
Your experience was most appreciated and nothing seemed to be a problem for you from the start to the end of the project.
We would have no issues in recommending MCK Construction for any work.

Re: MCK Construction, Installation of oak doors and oak handrail to stairs, and general joinery work.
To whom it may concern,
Tom has recently completed some work to my house. This included replacing doors and skirting’s, plaster boarding to walls and ceilings, and replacing my front door. As well as these main jobs Tom also did a lot of general joinery jobs that required attention, nothing was too much trouble.
I found Tom very conscientious in his work, always paying great attention to detail. He always found solutions to problems he met and kept me fully informed. He was punctual and tidy in his work.
A great bonus for me was that Tom organised the other trades required, arranging for them to do the work when required, saving me the trouble.
I have no hesitation in recommending MCK Construction for any joinery work.

Re: Bathroom replacement and installation of UPVC fascia & soffit.
MCK Construction have just refurbished my bathroom to a very high standard. They took care of ordering all the materials and fittings, organising all the tradesmen and kept me well informed thought the whole process.
I also used MCK Construction to install maintenance free UPVC fascia and guttering around the entire property.
In both instances I have found all the workmen to be extremely friendly and efficient and found their prices reasonable. I would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending them to others.

Re: General joinery work carried out by MCK Construction.
Many thanks for the work you completed recently.
I was most impressed with the finished work and your professionalism and knowledge of what was required. Your input and advice was much appreciated (and needed), for which I was most grateful. It was also pleasing that you arrived at the agreed time and left, leaving a clean and very tidy job.
I wish you every success in your business venture and I will have no hesitation in calling on you again as and when the services of a joiner are required.

Re: Replacement Oak Balustrade.
To whom it may concern,
I would highly recommend Tom McCrank of MCK Construction, for the removal and replacement of a wooden banister. He gave me support from the offset providing me with brochures and guidance on the different types of wood available and the different finishes we could achieve. All the products he used were sourced using local suppliers and the old banister was removed cleanly and efficiently with minimal disruption.
I opted for a White Oak banister and the end result was of a very high standard with my desired natural clear varnish finish. The areas around the new banister were finished with edging and facings to give the ultimate end product, and I was very happy with these finishing touches and the attention to detail. I found Tom to be very reliable and the job was finished slightly below the estimated price, which was a nice surprise. I would happily use MCK Construction again in the future.
