MENATWORK Areas we serve


We've received some of the most highly-regarded awards in the home remodelling and construction industry. See what our clients and industry partners have to say.

Paul, Matt, Claire and Natalie were absolutely all amazing people. Just exceptional professionals. 100% on communication, problem resolution, the design and project management team.

Krista & Steven

We were extremely satisfied with the way the whole team supported us throughout the build. We felt that Men At Work met our expectations quite well. Our design team was amazing and worked so well with us throughout the project. They were always available for a quick consultation even for the smallest details.

Ian & Kris

When you hire a company like Men At Work, you have very high expectations. They are at the upper echelon of Design and Build companies in the GTA and when you return home, ones expectations are very high. Some management on this front could improve to ensure that the client clearly understands what they are walking into.

Noelle & Adrian

Long after our project has been completed, we are so happy with the renovation of our apartment. The Men at Work team is the best!

Christian & Julie

The process was very organized from the beginning to the end. They were professional and courteous at every step of the journey. They honoured the timeline that was set out from the start. They were always communicative and there were established channels in which to voice questions or concerns. A very good system supported with the on-line details that were helpful.

Rob & Anne

I am most satisfied that everything worked out great. Communication was effective, and the entire team was organized and professional.

Vlad & Livia

First and foremost, Matt's a great PM. He was incredibly responsive, accommodating, respectful and a real pleasure to interact with! The carpenter (Sam) and the foundation guy (Octavio) were outstanding; you were able to see they really took a lot of pride in their work and were happy to explain what was going on. I think MAW's strength is certainly in quality construction. I was very happy and confident during the construction process, and felt they had more than ample expertise for construction.

Nicholas & Barbara

We were impressed by the level of detail in the initial budget... The end result is a fantastic house which our family will enjoy for years.

Yuri & Jamie

I hired and worked with MAW since 2015 and am pleased with the design and quality of the works the team delivered. This is a group of professionals that take great pride in what they do. Highly recommend.


Paul is the man. We love our home, loved interacting with him and his team for the project, and would recommend him to any friend without the slightest bit of hesitation.

Tony & Karin

The entire team was great. Claire, Natalie and Matt. However Matt was really amazing. Truly exceptional.

Steven & Krista

Men At Work are everything you want in a contractor: personable, great design sense and perceptive problem solvers... quite simply excellent to work with.

Taliaferro & Simon

Full points for the design team and project manager. We trust Men At Work and will certainly recommend them.

Paul Rebelo & Jo-Anne

I wish to express my gratitude following the completion of my basement renovation. The quality of the workmanship is great and the results look outstanding!


Paul and his company have technical and construction expertise, and, as importantly, integrity. Integrity for the process and due diligence

Rebecca & Richard

Very satisfied with the work, the process and the follow-through of the team in regards to our project. Having such a fantastic project manager made the world of difference as far as we were concerned. He is the face of Men at Work in our minds and in our project being so successful.

Rob & Anne

Kevin is a great project manager. Very responsive and helpful in working through issues that arise.

Samantha & Ian

Thank you for the excellent renovation your company recently completed on our basement. My husband and I are very pleased with the project from start to finish.


Timely communication throughout the process was so integral to the project running smoothly. He was and is always accessible...

Sean & Nicole

From start to finish we were thoroughly impressed not only with the planning and construction, but the follow up. We've been back in our home since July and if any small issues pop up (like a faulty led strip), the Men At Work crew respond immediately and correct the problem with no additional cost or hassle. We would absolutely use Men At Work again, perhaps in our next home.


Not only are we pleased with the finished product, but also with the professional way you and your workmen carried out the renovation.

Paul & Patsy

Although the project took longer then expected, our project manger and designer were fantastic to work with. I was very satisfied with the communication with our project manger and designer - very friendly and helpful.

Paul & Jo-Anne

The design exceeded my expectations.

Neil & Jennifer

The whole Men At Work crew is a coterie of skilled, knowledgeable and genuinely nice people that you can trust to deliver a top quality job, and be kind to your dog.

Nadine Chan

The design team is really the Dream Team bringing our desire for a classic and elegant home into reality. All the staff at MAW were a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend MAW and we will most certainly be returning clients.

Marta & Rob

The designer exceeded our expectations.

Natalie & Eloi

They also come up with really good solutions on the fly to complex problems that I (and most contractors) would probably never think of.


The quality of the work and design were excellent. We are thrilled with the final results!

The nicest bunch of people you want hanging around for almost a year. Honest and genuine. They really care about what they do, and do it well. You'd want them as your friends and neighbours.

Jill & Kevin

Would recommend MAW. Top marks for design team, trust and value!

Erin & Ben

From extended on site meetings, to detailed emails that explained everything we could ever need to know... to personally delivering space heaters in the middle of night...

Jennifer & Darren

For the scope of work covered in our fixed priced part of the contract, the work was executed on time, on budget, hassle free, by excellent craftsmen, which is exactly the experience we expected and we were very happy with the result.

Jacob & Joel

Overall construction was great! High quality of materials and workmanship.


The Men At Work project management system was innovative, extremely helpful in keeping us on schedule and demonstrative of the quality of the service provided.

Fiona & Jamie

There were a number of challenges along the way, from frozen pipes to design changes to finishing issues, but Kevin and Kate were always quick to tackle the problem, give us options and implement quickly. [Our Project Manager] Kevin was an incredible communicator and he generally made us feel confident about the project throughout the job. Kevin was also personable, professional and we trusted him.

Erin & Jonathan

One thing that impressed both of us is how the team has remained committed to very high levels of customer service despite the complexities with running a larger business.

Gino & Heidi

Paul and his experienced team were able to come up with creative ways to solve every problem that came up during the building process.

Dave & Marilyn

100% to the design and project management teams. Very likely to recommend.

David & Leah

I can't say enough about Paul G. and Men At Work. He was always forthright about cost and timing, he involved both my wife and I equally.... Can't recommend them enough and would use them again in a heartbeat.

Derek & Deb

Men At Work doesn't just provide exceptional service to its clients, it's also highly respected and a true pillar of strength within the community.

Chris & Erin

We contracted MENATWORK for our design & build project involving a full gut and 3rd-floor addition to our 100-year-old house. We are thrilled with the finished project and have been extremely satisfied with the whole team’s professionalism, responsiveness, and competence - particularly from our project manager, site manager, designer, and architect. They were highly communicative and collaborative throughout the process and we are really thrilled with the final product.

Carly S & Matt M

We recently completed a whole home renovation with Men at Work. Throughout the eight months of planning and one year of construction with Men at Work, their service and quality of work exceeded our expectations. From the start to the end of the project, everyone involved was incredible. We visited the site at least once a week and our project manager, John, and site manager, Omar, are both exceptional at what they do. They are a great team, knowledgeable, open communication, personable, responsive, and always kept us up-to-date with the progress.

The project was on-budget; they detailed the pros, cons, and recommended solutions. We decided to spend the extra money so that they could bring our dream home to life! The estimated construction timeline for our project was one year and they right on time.

When our home was delivered, punch list items were addressed within 3 days. Their after-sales services has been impressive; they are responsive and promptly followed up on any outstanding items.

Thank you Men at Work for transforming our house to our dream home!

Anthony and Alvina

When I think of MAW and the team, I think of a company that really cares. They want to execute the vision you and they have developed. They are there for you every step of the way and if there are any issues, they will find a solution. The company and people are professional and go the extra mile to ensure you are happy. Also once the job is done, they don't just leave. They've come back to touch things up. Overall we had a wonderful experience, and that is why we used them twice.

Bhavesh Joshi

I was very lucky to have MENATWORK fix and almost rebuild my basement of my 75 year-old-house. From project initiation, design and engineering development, permit and project management, carpentry and accounting services, their in-house team showed me a high level of professionalism. The trades they selected are also the best of all - very knowledgeable and efficient. My basement is now compliant with the modern day building code - safe, moisture and flooding proof, energy efficient and most importantly a very beautiful design. Their project management system included project progress, billing summary, change orders and even credit refund all in details. Everything has been documented, no hidden agenda. Honestly the costs was not cheap BUT for all those professional services, high quality materials and workmanship, more than 100 persons involved in a basement project, everything is compliant with updated codes and by-laws, their charges is in fact very reasonable in this level. Highly recommended.
