Master Bedroom & Extensive built-ins – Toronto

Bernie and I just wanted ot say thank you. Every time we walk into our bedroom we are taken aback at our beautiful built-ins. Everything is truly perfect! We looked at the plans many times and everything looked just right on paper, but we are truly stunned at how elegant it is in reality. Also thank you for being so patient and considerate throughout all the work. You can’t believe how much easier our lives are with the new space.

The stone around the fireplace and the back of the shelves are gorgeous too! You made it all seem so easy!

P.S. I still can’t believe you came back with plate and threaded the wires back through again.

P.P.S. Thank you for the lovely card.

Bathroom and Flooring – Toronto

In March, Pawel had completely renovated the second floor powder room top to bottom, living up to my “Great Expectations”! The company quotes Aristotle “Excellence is not an act but a habit” and working within this motto rates A+ with the Better Business Bureau and in my opinion. Pawel was helpful in giving many suggestions. Soon I would rehire them! In May, this time to lay hardwood floors in the hall, three bedrooms and put up two railings and replace the stair carpeting. Pawel was there to rescue the carpet—I ordered the wrong one! This time Richard was here to lend his expertise. I told him he had taught Pawel well—good work ethics. These jobs were finished to my complete satisfaction and admiration of neighborhood friends. I would gladly hire these people again if necessary.

2nd floor Renovation and Bathroom – Toronto

Archer Construction Group recently completed a renovation of our main bathroom and bedrooms. Working with our designer, ChachiaGomes, they achieved a beautiful result. We are very pleased with their workmanship and business practices.

The project included: • A complete renovation of the bathroom involving intricate tile work, custom vanity and installation of a water filtration system; • Coordination with our window suppliers and final trimming of the installed units; • Construction of new closets for two adjacent bedrooms and the relocation of the wall between them; • Coordination without air conditioner and central vacuum suppliers; • Installation of new lighting fixtures, outlets and upgrade to our electrical panel; and • Painting and plaster repair throughout.

Archer provided a thorough breakdown of the project and costs at the outset. They stuck to the budget and, although the project took much longer than expected, we were always kept informed of the status.

Richard and his assistant were a pleasure to having in our home. They were quiet, respectful and friendly. Most notably, they protected our home thoroughly before the project began, which was a major concern for us, and then kept the job site incredibly tidy, even cleaning up after other contractors.

We would be pleased to recommend Archer Construction Group.

Condo Bathroom Renovation – Toronto

We would like to thank you for the fantastic work you did with our bathroom. It was actually comforting to have Richard around as he went about his work in a confident and conscientious manner.

It is clear that Richard enjoys his work and that he will not stop until he has attained perfection.

You have re-instated our faith in the renovation business. It was a pleasure dealing with you.

Two Condo Renovations – Yorkville

Thanks to all your hard work, we have completed the renovation on two condos. We are thrilled with the end result and thank you for the effort you put into our project. The quality is excellent and Ron and I both appreciate the effort you put in to achieve it.

We have sold XXXX (and the new owners are so very impressed with your workmanship) and will be moving to XXXX on our return from XXXX in early April.

We hope you have been able to get away to enjoy some sunshine and a well deserved Holiday.

It has been a pleasure to work with Richard. Our thanks.

Full Home Renovations – Toronto

Having worked with a number of groups over the years that did not meet our high standards for fit and finish, we spent some time interviewing, and then visiting, previous clients of potential contractors.

Archer stood out in this process, and their work on our project surpassed even our own expectations to the point where the firm responsible for the design acknowledged that the result was better than they had drawn.

Although our preference is to keep Archer to ourselves, we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Basement & Bathroom Renovations – Toronto

Just a quick note to thank you for filling in for the last 2 months. You delivered more than you promised! The secret to your success has to be your secret weapon—“Richard”. Your dad was on time everyday for 2 months despite 3 or 4 snow storms, and his workmanship is superb! I look forward to dealing with you in the near future and on other upcoming projects.

Basement Renovation – Toronto

For the second time, Archer got a project in on time and within budget.

The latest project involved upgrading our basement. Pawel made the time to get the project scope and specifications right, explaining to us the different options available; the kind of unexpected things that could change the plan and how we might address it. He also explained the latest materials available and where they may be sourced. During the work, it was a relief to come home and not find the place covered in dry-wall dust, thanks to new, improved material used and Richard’s meticulousness.

Work was done to plan and if we had questions, they were promptly answered by email or phone. The unexpected did happen: for instance, it was a struggle to get energy efficient lighting to work on timers, but, solutions were found. Paint work had to match existing colours and what we chose did not: luckily, Richard had a better eye. In the end, Richard and Pawel left us a well cleared and meticulously restored site. We recommend Archer to our friends and family.

Bathroom Renovation – Etobicoke

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and Richard very much for repairing the shower in my basement bathroom.

Richard was wonderful. He let me watch, answered my questions and took the time to point out the obvious mistakes of the previous contractor, which caused the shower to leak into the hallway. He was meticulous in his work and the final result looks fantastic.

I also want to thank you for keeping in touch and checking on progress. I was particularly impressed that when you found a scratch on the shower door you had arranged for its replacement within 30 minutes.

I suspect this was a small job for you but you made yourself available and answered my many questions and concerns particularly since this is the 4th time I have had to replace the shower. I cannot thank you both enough.

Renovations in multiple properties– Lakeshore and Bloor West

I would like to complement you on the fine workmanship and quality of your work. You were very easy to communicate with; you understood our needs, made helpful suggestions and were competitively priced.

I’ve struggled with practically every contractor I’ve done business with in the past. Either they were late, over budget or would never show up. Your company was a joy to deal with. You did what you say you would and did it when you said you’d do it. I will definitely and confidently recommend you to anyone that needs construction work.

Interior Renovations – Bloor West

Quality, Trust and Experience is the way I would speak about my experience with Archer Fine Construction.

During a grueling total home renovation in 2007, I was forced to take matters into my own hands and complete the finishing touches to my home.

Like all people thinking of doing a home renovation, I thought I did all the homework needed to find the right contractors to renovate my home. I.e., getting 3 quotes, doing background checks, interviewing previous clients, etc.

The reality is that I found out that there is nothing better than “word of mouth” referrals from industry professionals.

I did the same homework by getting 3 contractors to come by, and gathered their quotes. Not satisfied by their attitude or price, I was referred to the Matonog team at Archer Fine Construction. After a quick call to Pawel Matonog, I had set up an appointment for a visit.

Con’t – Interior Renovations – Bloor West

Pawel came by with many books of real photos of past work for previous clients. The photos detailed work that looked like it came out of a Better Home and Gardens magazine. In fact, I quickly thought that this is something I just could not afford, until I got the quote.

The fact was that the quote was absolutely reasonable for the amount of work that needed to be done. Pawel was honest, professional and had instilled in me the trust that was missing from past contractors that had made visits.

Finish carpentry is the “wow factor” to any home renovation. And to this point, Archer Fine Construction did not disappoint. My hoe is filled with old world European charm and quality.

My home is beautiful. Each time I open my front door and look at the wood trim, I feel so proud of myself for finally making the right choice in a contractor.

The job was done on time and on budget. I would not hesitate in referring Archer Fine Construction to anyone looking for the right people to do their finish carpentry.

Thank you Pawel, for having the proper work ethic and integrity needed in an industry that surprisingly has so little.

2nd Floor Renovation – Roncesvalles Village

Archer Construction completed a job for us this summer that included a complete renovation of a bathroom and bedroom. In addition to this they did structural work in the main hallway and another bedroom.

Pawel and Richard were always in contact with us and spent a great deal of time planning to meet our needs. They listened and added to our plans and often their suggestions were innovative and very helpful.

The time line changed as the job became bigger but we were never left with a house that was not being worked on every day. Their contracted workers were polite and efficient. The cost of the project was competitive with other companies but we chose Archer because they assured us they were going to take no short cuts to do the job. They are professional and perfectionists and that’s what we all want in a contractor.

Their work is truly amazing and Richard is a lovely man and a craftsman. They all take pride in their work.

I would not hesitate to ask them to do our next renovation project. I just hope they can fit us in!

Basement Renovation with Extensive built-on site Cabinetry – Mississauga

Just a brief note with regards to Archer Fine Construction.

We had our basement completely finished by Archer and couldn’t be more pleased with the professionalism and skilled workmanship they provided to us. Our basement is the showpiece of our home and we thoroughly enjoy using it. We had many custom requests and Archer had no problem in fulfilling all our requests.

It was a pleasure having Richard and Pawel in our home. They were courteous and trustworthy and never gave us any cause for concern. We would have no problem dealing with Archer again.

Bathroom Renovation – Etobicoke

It was a fortunate day for me when Frank Cohn recommended Archer to do my en suite bathroom renovations.

Your knowledge of what would and wouldn’t work in my bathroom was impressive. Richard’s quiet manner and impeccable attention to detail and insistence on perfection was professionally executed. It exceeded all my expectations. I will enjoy this bathroom for years to come.

Should the occasion arise I would not hesitate to hire Archer for any future projects. I am more than willing to recommend Archer Construction to anyone who is interested in a quality renovation project.

Basement & Two Bathrooms – Mississauga

Ron and I wanted to thank you for the quality basement renovation completed in our home.

This is the second job that you have done for us (crown molding, 2006) and we were very impressed with your sense of pride and dedication, often staying late and working weekends.

You were able to offer alternatives, suggestions or refinements to our ideas that add value to the whole project. We really appreciated your efforts in ensuring that your work area and house were left clean and organized and that litter was removed from the premises at the end of each workday.

Being tough customers when it comes to detail, we were very impressed with Richard’s sense of pride when it comes to quality workmanship. Richard is not only a skilled professional but considerate and patient. It’s a pleasure to do business with such good dependable and reliable people. Archer Construction was able to deliver the quality that we were expecting and we are extremely pleased with the final product.

Our basement has become the showpiece of our home and it is fair to say that our basement has made a dramatic improvement in the enjoyment of our home.

So thanks again and I would recommend anyone to consider Archer Construction for their next project.

The renovations have increased the value of our condo and we have no reservation to recommend Archer to anyone who wants top quality and on schedule completion.

Thank you so much for my beautiful bathrooms. I am thrilled with the results. The attention to detail and quality of your work is meticulous, and I will enjoy them for many years to come. The experience of renovation can be overwhelming, but you made it pleasurable. Your thorough communication made it all manageable.

I’m already starting to plan our next project, we’ll speak soon.

Many, many thanks for all your help with the cozy little ‘reading room’! I hope you will come by to see it when it’s complete. Loved working with you.

Dining Room Renovation – Brampton

It is my distinct pleasure to extend a Letter of Recommendation to you on behalf of Archer Construction Group Ltd.

The Archer Construction Group did extensive renovation work in my dining room installing molding, a ceiling medallion, lighting and an exquisite custom made cabinet unit.

Following the advice of an interior decorator I explained the objectives and wishes for a new, renovated dining room to Mr. Pawel Matonog. He explained various options and patiently reviewed the selections with me. I then entrusted Mr. Matonog with the task of carrying out the upgrading and improvement of my dining room.

I am pleased to say that the work exceeded my admittedly high expectations. The work was done professionally, on time and within the cost parameters previously discussed between Mr. Matonog and myself.

Con’t – Dining Room Renovation – Brampton

Many friends and relatives have since lavished praise on the handiwork performed by Mr. Matonog and the phrase “straight out of Homes and Garden magazine” has frequently been used to describe my dining room’s ‘new look’.

I highly recommend Mr. Matonog and Archer Construction to anyone considering construction or renovation work to their home.

You will meet the extremely personable Pawel Matonog and experience the rewards of consulting with such a knowledgeable professional. He will ensure your renovation project is a sight to behold for years to come. You won’t be disappointed.

Garage and Exterior – Toronto

We used Archer Construction during the summer of 2008 to rebuild a wooden fence and to insulate our garage. Pawel contacted us promptly and came to our home as promised. He gave us a reasonable estimate. Any work that he was not able to complete he referred us to other companies. We were very impressed that this referral was given to us prior to hiring Archer Construction.

All construction work was completed on schedule. We were very satisfied with the quality of the work, their reliability and professionalism. We recommend Archer Construction to anyone needing a dependable, reliable and honest contractor for quality workmanship.

We will definitely use Archer Construction again.

Finish Carpentry – Brampton

We have had Archer work in our home two times now, installing Crown Molding.

The Archer team was extremely professional, with excellent workmanship and attention to the finest detail.

The job site was always clean and well managed.

Once our neighbor saw the amazing transformation, they too hired Archer to bring out the best in their home.

They have added real value to our home.

I would recommend Archer without hesitation, and look forward to our next project with them.

Finish Carpentry – Toronto

I would like to express at this time that my family and I are extremely satisfied with the work you’ve done in our home.

The panel looks amazing and it’s clear to us and to everyone we show it off to that the job was done proficiently. We were also very comfortable with your services, especially from the way that you kept in communication with us to make sure we were well informed on any changes or how well the progress was going. Your crews showed up on time and maintained professional behavior while they worked. Furthermore, we appreciate how you finished on schedule and on budget, which just proved to us that if ever again we wanted to do something like this or if a friend asked us where to get it done, you would be our first, our only option.

Finish Carpentry – Oakville

I would like to extend this referral letter in respect to the services you and your father provided to us some time back. As you will remember, we had you do all the crown mouldings in the first floor of our house, as well as, all the jambs, headers and casings for all the door thresholds. To this respect I would like to say that the installation of all these elements was done very professionally and above all, in perfect order and cleanliness. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Your performance to date continues to live up to the high standards you delivered in our job. You have excelled in all categories, including customer contact, safety, adherence to schedule, caliber of supervision, quality of materials and workmanship, attention to detail and also of great importance with price.

You were most willing to perform some extra work when asked for it without reflecting it in the final price. Your cooperation was outstanding and I could finally add that father and son both speak the same language of dedication, commitment and customer care. Based on the above, we would highly recommend ARCHER on any project that could require your services.

Basement – Thornhill

Archer Construction finished my basement in 2008. My basement is approximately 1000 square feet. I needed the basement to be finished with a bathroom, a small kitchenette, an office area, and a large living space. I also needed the furnace hot water tank to be enclosed and soundproofed.

Pawel and his trades people estimated that the work would take two and a half to three months to complete and they identified the cost for the labour and material.

The work was completed on time, within the budget promised. I did change my requirements as we proceeded into the construction phase and this required some additional material and workmanship which was estimated before that part of the work was started. This work was also completed within the timeframe and budget estimated.

All the trades staff was very easy to communicate with. They always met their promises. In particular, they always arrived when promised and worked for the entire time that they were here. The quality of their workmanship went beyond my expectation. They also provided me with ideas that I did not think about at the start of the project. These modifications definitely resulted in a superior result from that envisioned at the start. They continuously were in contact with me along the way to ensure that I was happy with the result.

I will use them again if I move to a different home and require similar work. I highly recommend them to you.

Basement – Toronto

We are writing to thank you for the work that you completed finishing our basement. We are very happy with the end result and wanted to write to you to express our thoughts on the experience.

We have received many compliments on the workmanship that you provided. Thank you for our punctuality, professional manner and your attention to detail. We appreciate that you were both easy to communicate with and were receptive to our questions and concerns throughout the project.

Your workmanship clearly indicates that you place details and quality of work as a top priority.

As you know, we have already recommended you and your work to friends of ours and would recommend you and use you again in the future with no hesitation.

Numerous Renovations – Toronto

Thank you Pawel – A pleasure to do business with both you and Richard again.
