My review is a bit late but I didn't see it within the reviews for this company and decided to submit it again. I purchased a coupon deal through Angie’s List from this company to have my roof inspected since more than 20 years have passed since it had been replaced. The MacKays arrived promptly as stated when we made the appointment. The employees were very professional, my roof was inspected, an...

The entire job went smoothly and was done quickly from the time I contacted them for an estimate until the work was completed. They supplied me with numerous photos documenting the state of the roof and chimney to support the estimate, and then with more photos showing the progress of the work through completion. The workers were prompt, thorough and efficient. We are very satisfied with MacKay.

Lewis and his crew did a fabulous job from start to finish. I have had horrible experiences with contractors in the past, overcharging for terrible work and making the situation worse, but Lewis was honest and reliable. He responded quickly to my call even during the busy season. He gave me an honest and fair estimate, and then continued to answer tons of questions that I had over the following mo...

The initial contact back took a little longer than expected, but Lewis was quite friendly. The son was no less friendly, and had a great sense of humor. They evaluated my roof and noted that it needed a full replacement, I didn't disagree; however, because of on going renovations, I couldn't afford a completely new roof. I asked for something that would last me 2-3 years, and they didn't hesitate ...

Although I didn't end up needing to hire MacKay Home Improvements for the project, the responsiveness was IMPRESSIVE! Turns out it's not a gutter issue, but a drainage issue and Lou let me know quickly (he happened to be nearby and checked it out). Now on to find a plumber. Thanks, Lou!

This spring/summer (2018) it rained a lot and the back of my home had a leak. It was supposedly repaired by re-caulking the sunroom but when it started raining again - the leak was back. I was so confused and was lucky to find Lewis. It was so hard to find someone to come out and look at the issue. Lewis was awesome! He returned my call the same day, was honest about the timeline and was able to l...

Made sure we were satisfied with the start date and did a good job in getting the job done well and quickly. Afterwards, we noticed that some porch water still was able to run over the porch drainage system and they came to provide a simple new solution free-of-charge.

Mr. Mackay has been doing work in Manor Park for a long time, and his work was recommended by both new and old neighbors. The work was done well and we appreciated the communication as well as before/after photos of the work. We were pleased with the honest and professional assessment of what work needed to be done, specifically that a small amount of preventative work could extend the life of our...
