Roofing, Window, and Vinyl Siding Renovations

Dear John McLellan,

About a year ago, our town home was beginning to have some major problems with a leaky roof on the top of the unit and leaky flat roof on the third floor deck.  To make matters worse, the windows on the third floor were beginning to rot.  Despite our best efforts to obtain help from family members in the roofing trade and from various independent contractors we were not able to obtain a fair quote nor the personal attention and guidance a first time home owner needed.

Imagine our surprise when we first met John in December 2009.  John came out and gave my family an honest evaluation of my roofs and windows and sent us a fair quote within a few days.

Regarding the workmanship and the work crews we had the pleasure of meeting:

The first round of work involved refinishing the steep roof on our townhouse as well as refinishing the flat roof on our deck.    A gentleman named Leroy and his crew treated this house like it was their own.  They were careful, polite, considerate and honest.  Midway through the roof work Leroy noticed that our dryer vent was not connected and that lint was spewing into the attic.   Leroy sent me photos directly from his mobile phone and called to ask permission to make sure all the other vents in the attic were connected.   Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty.

Regarding the second phase of the project: windows, siding and insulation of the exterior walls behind the siding:

We had the pleasure of meeting Kate and her assistant for phase two of the project immediately following the completion of phase one.  This is a company that knows how to manage a project to ensure there is always activity.  Kate and her crew were affectionately referred to as a team of home repair ninjas by me and my wife because they came in quietly and worked super efficiently and left the place looking better than ever when they arrived.   In the process of replacing the siding on our balcony, Kate demonstrated a keen sense of attention to detail when she ensured our door trim was recapped to match the rest of the siding.  Any other company might have left the old material in place to save time and labour but not this one. This is what customer service is all about!!!

Speaking of customer service, I was able to reach Sue at the office for immediate assistance with any questions whether it was about financial matters or the work.  No waiting, no call backs.

John, your staff is a true credit to your company.   We are proud to endorse your company to our family and friends.    Although we never want anything to go wrong with our home in the future, we know if / when it does – we can confidently call on your company to come to our rescue.

Yours sincerely,

I would like to recommend the services of John McLellan Contracting Inc. We contracted McLellan to install windows, repair water damage, replace siding and install insulation for weather protection. This was not an easy job. McLellan's team replace 3 bay windows, replaced drywall, repaired and painting and did a thorough clean up on everything.

We found the McLellan staff to be punctual, courteous, reliable, professional, organized, and thorough. Most of all they all have experience and skills. They use the best materials, provide quality workmanship and it looks great. I would gladly recommend this contracting company to anyone who has a renovation or repair requirements.

John and Staff,

Just a short note to express our written thanks so much for the great job your roofing crew preformed on our house on October 02, 2007. Even though the weather started out as rainy, that didn't bother them or slow them down. They did a great job; worked well together, were very polite and considerate, and I enjoyed taking some pictures with our digital camera so that I could show them to Ron when he got home from work that night. The shingles on the roof look terrific and we are very pleased with the job.

Subject: Looking for a roofing Contractor?

I had a great experience with a roofing company which I would love to share. The roofing company is located in Durham Region.

The company is called John McLellan Contracting and they specialize in windows, roof replacement and the cleaning of eavestroughs. This would be a good referral for anyone living in the east end that is looking for a reputable professional to repair or change their roof. John and his staff took the time to educate me about the roof and gave me the best options to repair it. It was too late in the season to change the roof so John prepared it for the winter and promptly returned to change the roof this spring. I was very pleased with his services and would recommend him to anyone

If you are looking for any of the above services I mentioned, please feel free to contact me for the information.

Window Renovations

To John McLellan and Staff,

I would like to thank you for there care you took in the installation of my new windows. I'm sure you have heard this from many clients, but your staff was so friendly, and accommodating. When I came home to see my new windows had been installed, I didn't even have to vacuum. It's like they'd never been there. The furniture was back in place and everything!

Thanks again for all the great service. I look forward to doing the rest of the house and continue to refer you to clients and friends.
