We’ve been asked to write a brief testimonial regarding our experiences with Paul Gallop and his company Men At Work during the construction of our home at Playter Crescent. It is our distinct pleasure to do so.
We hired Paul after interviewing several other builders in the spring of 2012. We were instantly put at ease by Paul’s warm and disarming nature. He was comprehensive and direct in his estimates of the time and cost of the project – all of which later turned out to be extremely accurate.
During construction of our home Paul was always available and responsive. He would update us weekly via email and his website updates were helpful. His experience and knowledge was impressive, yet if he was unsure of anything he would always admit he needed more time and/or resources to get the information we needed. He was never one to over-promise nor to under-deliver.
Paul’s staff were all top notch – as were all of his subcontractors. They were exceptionally friendly and considerate to the neighbours – which was a concern of ours going into the project. We received many positive comments from other homeowners in the area. Paul himself was incredibly dependable and reliable. He always responded promptly to emails or calls. He even came over to our place on Christmas Eve – during a power outage – to ensure we could get our gas fireplace working.
This was our first experience with building a house. We feel we have been spoiled by Paul as it was such a pleasant journey for our family. Paul and his team led us through every step of the process- from the initial architectural plans, to getting through the committee of adjustments, to obtaining building permits and finally building our amazing home. We will be grateful to him for a long time to come and would recommend Men At Work without reservation. In fact he has recently completed a home addition for a family member, and we have recommended him to countless friends.
