Class Act and Technically Strong

We had a major renovation planned but could not find the right ‘fit’ in a general contractor. We decided to use a reference from a colleague. From the moment we met Joey feet on Magnolia Construction, no one else compared and after weeks of finalizing our plans, Magnolia Construction proved to be in a league of their own- attentive, collaborative, technically strong, proficient with scheduling, reliable. It had gone smoothly. There were tradespeople on the site every day. The project came in under budget, and the work was exceptional. We highly recommend Joey and his team at Magnolia Construction.

Making the basement sane again

Our forever home is 120 years old. It has a basement which reflect that amazing age. And some of the problems you would associate with over a century of improvements and alterations.

I called Joey a few weeks ago, looking for a company I can form a relationship with. Work in the basement will be an ongoing thing, and Joey totally gets it.

He has been attentive and sensitive to the age of our home, and has listened to what we want to achieve. And he is working hard to fulfil the overly-detailed requests I have been making.

Phase 1 took place on Monday, when his team of plumbers arrived to untangle and rationalise the rats' nest of pipes, shut-off valves and nonsensical pipe runs we have.

Everyone turned up at 10am (Thank you for understanding that not everyone greets the dawn!) and everything was finished by 1:30 the same afternoon. The guys were polite, eager to make my simplified plumbing dream come true, and completely, 100% perfect when it came to mask-wearing and keeping a 6' distance.

When I did the walkthrough at the end of the job, I was astonished. I know reviews can be effusive sometimes and it seems fake. I am so sincere about this.:

The job was done so well, I was almost in tears!

All the excess pipe was gone;
the pipes had been upsized as I asked;
sane pipe runs went directly and efficiently to where they needed to go;
everything is now clearly labeled;
we have a manifold which would make a stone weep with joy;
my basement was left clean - no bits of pipe, or fittings or trash anywhere to be seen.

And the guys were as enthusiastic to show me the sane plumbing as I was to see it!

I am sure that the rest of the work we want done will be completed to the exacting and pleasing standard as the plumbing, and I am looking forward to having a good working relationship with Magnolia Construction for many years to come!

Bathroom renovation Stittsville

I want to compliment Magnolia for the superb job they did in my bathroom. Joey came to give me ideas and a quote.
After speaking with him for a short time, I knew I wanted Magnolia to do the job. Joey is a personable, professional and down to earth man who treats you like family. He is readily available if you have any questions.
Claudio did an excellent job of all the tiles.
Kyle, project manager, and his team were exceptional. They kept me informed of schedules , did daily cleanup, and ensured that everything was done perfectly and timely. Highly recommended!!
I highly recommend Magnolia to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed!

Kitchen Floor

Needed a quick upgrade to my kitchen floor in order to list my house. Claudio and his team removed 45 years of accumulated flooring quickly & tidily before laying new porcelain tile. End result was fantastic! I couldn't have been happier with Magnolia. They provided great advice before the project and consistently did what they said they'd do - including sticking to a tight timeframe.

Whether you have a big or small project, I would highly recommend contacting Magnolia and having them in to give you advice and a quote!

Renovation of bathroom in recroom

Joey was a very personable likable and easy going person to deal with. He arranged to have his guys do the project. He came up with estimate and stuck by that price. Claudio and Rodney who performed the work were very pleasant and accomodating in getting the job done. Claudio did a great job with the tiling work. Careful and meticulous. Proud of their work, cleaned up mess that they made and worked hard to satisfy us. I would certainly recommend Magnolia and Joey and his crew.

Excellent Service

Joey was so nice and excellent to work with.

Very quick responses to emails/texts and prompt to all meetings.

Very easy going and helpful.

Kelly, his designer, was also a pleasure to work with.

Unfortunately our project was postponed (on our end). Joey however was very understanding and will definitely be on our list for home renovations!!

Definitely

Structural Renovation

Joey responded right away to my requests. He was very flexible and was able to change the scheduling of the work needed at the last minute. He went above and beyond and I will definitely use his company for any future renovations. Very personable, professional and friendly. Highly recommended!

Bathroom

Connected with MAGNOLIA (Joey) after having a horrendous experience hiring another company. Magnolia listened to my requirements and design ideas from the start.

I’m an extremely meticulous person with a great attention to detail (which isn’t always great for contractors)... in this case I was able to take a step back once the design was created.

My home/bathroom was cleaned after each build day... mess removed. I have your children so this was a very important factor for me safety wise.

I made small additions to my design and his designer/builder were able to accommodate my changes at a minimal extra fee.

I was always able to reach Joey (the owner) to answer any and all of my question.

My previous contractor was making excuses and not showing up.

I always knew when to expect the guys from magnolia and they actually finished before anticipated.

Great experience and great company.

I will use magnolia for all my home construction/design needs! I highly recommended this company.

Thank you again for a job VERY WELL DONE AND A SATISFIED CUSTOMER....

*not to mention the amazing home made lasagna I received when the project was completed from joey !! Delicious and what a way to thank clients!

Water Damage Repair in Basement

From the first day that Joey showed up to survey the water damage in our basement, we knew that we were in good hands. Joey and his whole team were professional, meticulous, kind and all around great people that we enjoyed having around. We were kept informed of everything that was happening (we are tenants in the home but were treated as though we were the most important customers of Magnolia). We would not hesitate for a second to recommend Magnolia to anyone looking for excellent work by skilled professionals who put their heart into their work. Thanks again Joey, Claudio, Michel and the rest of the team!!

Unequivocally Exemplary

All I can truly say to summarize my experience with Magnolia is; Magnolia Construction epitomizes infallibility! They go over and beyond client expectations and I can't thank them enough for their great customer service, meticulously passionate in every sense of the word.

We wanted to renovate our whole master bathroom (toilet, tub, shower, vanity, lights, tiles, paint, trim etc). The final product as you can see with the pictures is incredible! We found it unfathomable that there is such a big difference we couldn't even recognize our bathroom. (First 3 pictures is the before look, the rest is final product).

From the very beginning of our project: They were not focused on money, they were unambiguously focused on making the customer happy, comfortable throughout. Any questions I had, Joey Peloso would answer my texts within minutes & sometimes seconds. Reliability is a key part of what made us go with Magnolia!

Feels surreal that the bathroom is even ours and that they were able to pull this off! I can't recommend them enough! All subsequent projects, they will be first to be contacted for a quote.

Thank you again Magnolia Construction!
