Michael H. Herring, CFA, CMT

When we were meeting with contractors prior to embarking on our renovation/addition, we could immediately see a difference between Bill Meek and the other three contractors we interviewed – attention to detail.

Of the other three contractors we interviewed, as we did the walk-through of the house and went over the drawings, two did not even take notes, and the third hardly took any notes. A lot of nodding the head, and “We’ve done this sort of thing before” and so on. And these were long-established contractors, active in our neighborhood. Bill on the other hand, took copious notes, and asked a lot of questions. The initial meeting ran over three hours with Bill, whereas the other three took less than an hour. Given the size of the project, we were surprised at the lackadaisical attitude of the other contractors.

The really glaring difference was when we received estimates from the four contractors. Of the four contractors, only Bill Meek provided a detailed estimate, breaking out costs for the major aspects of the project. The others provided ballpark estimates, and came back with a lot of “Well I didn’t include that in the estimate.”

This is our fourth time renovating, and in the past we have found that at the half-completed point, contractors will typically come up with a list of costs not included in their original estimate that blow the original estimate out of the water. Our experience with Bill was different, in that he showed a good grasp of the scope of the project in his estimate.

As the work on the house got underway, our confidence in Bill and his crew grew to the point that we drastically increased the scope of the work. Our original intention had been to get the reno/addition done, and then in 5-10 years undertake to do all the woodwork that would be needed to fulfill our dream. Once we saw the attention to detail and the quality of work that Bill’s crew was capable of, we pushed the final phase of the project forward.

During that time, my wife and I worked closely with Bill on finalizing the details for the woodwork, and Bill did much of the design work for the details himself.

The addition of the finished woodwork greatly expanded the scope of the project, and naturally, the cost. We found Bill to be very communicative throughout the process, keeping us up to date on the evolution of the budget.

We were very pleased with the outcome of the project, and are glad we did the extra work while the renovation was underway. Throughout the process, we appreciated Bill’s calm demeanor, and his flexibility, and the craftsmanship shown by his crew.

William W. Ollerhead & Dr. Kooyeon Chun

We engaged Bill and his firm to demolish and rebuild a main-floor family room addition to our 80 year old home.

From the outset we were reassured by Bill’s attention to detail, especially in creating a budget for the project.

When the project was completed there were no “extras” or overages from things that had been overlooked in the original estimate.

We were pleased with the pleasant and reliable staff, Bill’s attention to detail in design, and an honest collaborative approach to resolving the inevitable issues that arise in such a project.

Our interaction with Bill felt like a true partnership, and not the adversarial type of relationship one often hears of clients having with their contractors.

We would not hesitate to recommend W. C. Meek. Indeed, we hope to engage Bill and his firm again in the future.

We hired WC Meek Design and Construction to complete a full kitchen renovation, build a covered front porch, a three season room, and a covered BBQ area. Bill was a collaborative partner in designing our projects and was able to bring our vision alive. Bill and his team were professional, pleasant and were very respectful. They took measures to ensure the construction area was clean each day (we lived in the house during construction). Any crew, trades or subcontractors, were also a pleasure to work with and spoke highly of the firm. Work was completed in the expected timeframes and post project completion, Bill has been very responsive to any concerns. I am very happy with the work completed and would recommend Bill and his team.

We had an excellent renovation experience with WC Meek Design & Construction. Extremely professional throughout. At the first meeting, Bill Meek, met with us to get a feel for our project vision and design sensibilities. We were given a carefully itemized quote and project schedule. His designer helped us narrow down our design choices, while giving us ample opportunity for input. His tradesmen were great - careful and courteous. We ended up with an award winning ensuite that reflected exactly what we had hoped for.

Experienced and professional from the initial discussions with Bill Meek about possibilities for my bathroom describe my experience. Excellent ideas about maximizing the use of space to make room for everything that was wanted. Plans were reviewed in detail prior to commencement of the work. Bill has an amazing team who assist him. Everyone involved was very particular about the work that they do to produce high quality results. This included site cleanup that did not leave the house in a mess as the work progressed. From designer to trades people it was clear that each person enjoyed being part of the team at W. C. Meek Design and Construction Ltd. Additionally, suppliers who I spoke with also spoke very highly of Bill and his team.

This was a small Beach kitchen that needed a complete gut job. We needed more counter space, storage space and modernization. With Bill's expertise, his design team and professional crew, we were able to achieve our goals, increasing the counter and storage space by 50%!  It all came in on time and on budget. We have had no hesitation in recommending Bill to our friends and neighbors.

We hired WC Meek Design and Construction to design and renovate the entire first floor of our home; the final outcome being a gorgeous transformation of our 100 year old home! We overhauled our entire HVAC system, installed in-floor heating, opened up the back wall in the home by installing a floor to ceiling window and door system, gutted and redesigned the kitchen, and opened up the adjoining living room area. Bill Meek and his team prepared a detailed schedule for the entire project and the crew worked to the schedule. Budgets were outlined prior to the start of the project and updated as materials were chosen or altered from our original plan. Bill's crews are super tidy. We lived in our home for this renovation and appreciated the pleasant and courteous crew who were professional and respectful our home. Stellar work!

Excellent crew, all of whom show tremendous respect to Bill. Totally anxiety free renovation -- you articulate what you want, he can see your vision and make it happen. Everything is always meticulously done regardless of which one of the men is assigned and whether the job is big or small. If something goes wrong, which is rare, you know Bill will take care of it. His men have been with him for many years which says a great deal about Bill. He is not easy for me to afford, but I would not go to anyone else.

We used Bill's team for renovations in our downtown Toronto condo. They gave us great bathroom renovations, painting, shelving, and lighting replacements. From Bill on down the focus is on the customer. Great work and very understanding of our needs. I give them the highest possible ranking.

I wanted to change the floor plan of my newly purchased 2100 square foot condo to take advantage of the natural southern light. This involved taking down some walls, moving others, putting in a new kitchen, redoing 3 bathrooms, laying new floors, soundproofing walls and ceiling and numerous other things. It was a big job. Bill’s planning and design skills were invaluable and together with the high quality of workmanship by his team and subcontractors I have ended up with a beautiful and very usable space. Bill is highly professional, well organized and has exacting standards. He provided a weekly project plan that was regularly updated with details of the work to be done. He maintained close contact with his team and with me. His team was personable, courteous and easy to work with as were the subcontractors. I would not hesitate to give Bill and his company my highest recommendation.
