This is my fourth time using Mark's company. After a telephone consultation with a staff member, Mark and his assistant came by next day on time and efficiently replaced an aged, leaking builder unit with a nice new American Standard unit which looks and work great. Thanks again guys.
Came home from vacation to find furnace broken and pipes frozen and subsequently burst. Mark was extremely helpful and only too willing to co-ordinate with the timing of the replacement furnace to come and fix our burst pipes. Came that day - highly recommend.
I’ve had the exterior of our house painted a few times since we moved in, but previously I’ve not had the good quality that our current painter, Bullard Brothers, has given us. Karl Bullard’s process is interesting: * Sanding the joints of the 1? x 6? boards, both where they meet other boards and the joints of the small triangular pieces. The result is a more uniform appearance of the trim. * Filling all the joints with LePage outdoor wood filler… generating a smoother “face” across the trim boards. * Special care in applying caulking * Priming with Benjamin Moore exterior primer, which he tints so that the colour is closer to the colour of the final enamel coat… generating a better final coat colour. * After all this prep work, he and his crew of four apply the finish coat. I’ve been on site while this work was being done, and the degree of close supervision Karl Bullard gives his crew stands out… in comparison to other painters I’ve had. Bottom line: he gets better quality out of his crew. Al
I just wanted to thank you and your team for the superb job you did painting the basement woodwork. It is no longer the eye sore it was, and looks like it will last well. It has really freshened the look of the room. As usual, the quality of your team’s work is the best, as well as being very attentive to detail. As an artist, I have a keen eye for this! I also appreciate your friendliness: guess that is part of the Newfoundland package, as we notice how much more approachable and welcoming people from that province are, especially compared with this area. I don’t know how one could easily leave that. I would not hesitate to recommend you if the opportunity comes, and you may use me as a reference if you wish. I’ll swear that the stairwell carpet is in better condition than before you painted, so obviously painstakingly, around it. Don’t know how you did that. Please pass my ‘thanks’ on to your crew.
Congratulations on a job well done. We really liked your confidence when you explained how the job will be executed. Then you walked your talk. For us to paint the exterior of our house now (March 27) was really important so we could put the house on the market April 1. You were the only one that knew about and used this low temperature paint. The painters that worked with you were professional and very polite. If you need a recommendation you can count on us. We will contact you to paint our next house. Thank you very much,
Recently we had our house painted and not only did they pay attention to detail but made minimal mess in the house, even though there was a lot of sanding involved in our particular situation. After Carl and his team were finished we had a small problem with a area in our kitchen that showed some bubbling of the paint. We were unable to asses the cause of the problem but we called Carl and without any hesitation he was here the next day to patch up and fix the area at no extra charge. We would extremely recommend their services to anyone.
Great Service! Had water come back up from my floor drain so I called A.Mckenna. Within the hour 2 plumbers were at my door, they quickly found what they said to be a clean out. After 40 minutes of using their snake the water had cleared and I was good to go. Very clean and professional, recommending to anyone!
Had a leaky hose bib in my backyard I needed fixed and ready for winter. I set up an appointment with A.Mckenna Plumbing between 12-2pm the next day. Plumbers showed up on time at 1:00 pm and fixed the issue with no problems. Replaced a section of pipe, put on a new hose bib and winterized it for me. Quick with no headaches, Great service!
I have used A. McKenna Plumbing for years, 8 to be exact. They have done great work in my house as well as my clients houses. As a Realtor, my clients always ask me for referrals for all kinds of companies to perform work on their homes. I never hesitate to refer A. McKenna Plumbing for all their plumbing needs, and I highly recommend them to you. Thanks for all the great service guys!
My wife and I had called several of the larger plumbing companies that were being advertised to fix a dripping shower, and quickly discovered that the so called plumbers coming to my door were more interested in running up my bill rather than fix the problem at hand. After talking to some friends and family about the problem, my Father in-law gave me the number for A. McKenna Plumbing so I gave them a call. That same day I had a young man knock on my door and introduce himself as being from A. McKenna Plumbing, I invited him in he took off his shoes and I showed him the problem. He then assured me that this was an easy fix and went to it. I am very happy to say that not only was the problem fixed, it cost less than what the larger companies were trying to charge me. Clean, Courteous, and Professional, I now know who I will call for all my Plumbing needs. Thanks to all the staff at A. McKenna Plumbing and Renovations.
I called A.Mckenna plumbing to install a faucet in my power room, the service was booked and a team arrived the next day to install my faucet. They were clean and did efficient. I would recommend this company. The price quoted on the phone is what I paid. Good Job!
I have a electronic faucet that was giving me trouble. McKenna showed up the next day at 10:00 AM as we had agreed. After 5 minutes it turned out to be the solenoid. Mckenna ordered the parts from delta and had them installed 3 days later. Very knowledgeable when it comes to electronics. Great job will hire again.
I consider myself a competent handy guy and prefer to do all the repairs in our house. We had a clogged drain that was backing up in our kitchen, a simple fix for me to handle, or so I thought. I plunged it and no more clogged drain, problem solved, two days later the kitchen sink was backing up again. This time I snaked the clogged drain, problem solved. Within days it returned and I was again dealing with a clogged drain, after spending an entire afternoon on it I conceded that I was going to need a plumber. That evening, my wife anxious to get her kitchen back called Mark the owner of A. McKenna Plumbing in Oakville because she knew him and was confident we could trust him to just fix the clogged drain and not find reasons to add additional charges. Myself, I'm not so trusting, in the past I have gotten estimates only to find the price doubled when the work was done, which is one of the reasons I like to do my own repair work. The next morning Steve arrived and I was at his side the entire time,
We called A McKenna Plumbing for a hose faucet in our backyard that had been leaking for months. We thought it would be a big job, but the guys showed up and were able to repair the faucet quickly. The price was fair, they showed up on time, and I was able to make it back to work before lunch. We've had a few plumbers come to do repairs in the past, and always felt pressured to do more than what was required. This was not the case with the A. McKenna crew. Honest local guys, reasonably priced. Will call again.
