Custom Finish Carpentry
When it comes to custom finish carpentry, we are your local experts. Over the years we have become incredibly familiar with both old and new styles of millwork. Whether you are looking to update your home with the current “in” look or wanting to take a step back in time with a more traditional/classic look, we have got you covered. We have access to all the mouldings available. In rare situations, we have run into jobs where the customer wanted to add on to the homes existing trim work, but the profile was discontinued years ago. When this happens, we can order multiple different profiles and modify them to match, or we make them ourselves in house. Regardless of the style that you are wanting to achieve, we know how to make it a reality. When a customer has decided to give MC Construction the privilege of working in their home, we take that very seriously. We know that your home is very personal and important to you. It’s where your family spends most of its time and creates countless memories. We do everything possible to respect that. All our cutting is done outside or in a garage with a vacuum system hooked to the saws. If any cutting must be done inside, we always have a vacuum being used and often create temporary plastic walls built to contain dust. At the end of the day, we always cleanup inside and outside the home. Carpentry is a messy job, there is no way around it, but we do it using the cleanest methods possible. At MC Construction our goal is to not only deliver a high-quality product, but more importantly, a high-quality experience. From day one we want you to have confidence that you are in good hands. Punctuality, communication, cleanliness, respect, and most importantly, a high-quality product is the experience that we guarantee.
A large amount of the work we perform at MC Construction is custom cabinetry. When we come by to provide an estimate, the first thing we do is listen. We want to hear all your ideas from beginning to end. The most important thing to us is that we understand your vision completely. Once we have a good understanding, we like to talk about all the details with you and see if there is anything we can do to improve it. After we have settled on all the details, we get to work. We do all kinds of different and interesting projects. For example, taking an existing kitchen with good bones and adding on to it. This has been a popular alternative to replacing an entire kitchen. Rather than getting rid of the existing cabinets, countertops, and backsplashes, we leave the majority and add on to it. Older style upper cabinets are 36” tall, while the new style of upper cabinets are 42”-48” or more. The taller cabinets project height and are much more pleasing to the eye. To create the same look, we add on to the top of the upper cabinets and often go to the ceiling with them and run crown moulding or other decorative trim around the top. What we add on can either be decorative or functional, the choice is up to you. We can match your existing cabinets and doors to create great storage for things that you do not want to get rid of, but do not have room for. Typically, things that are not used often, such as items used during the holidays or for hosting guests. Adding a pantry is also a popular request. Once we have completed the installation, the new and old cabinets are all painted the same color. Truly creating the feel of a new kitchen at a fraction of the cost. Other popular projects include but are not limited to; custom entertainment centers, mud room benches, closet packages, bookshelves and custom offices.
Pre-Finished Hardwood, Engineered Hardwood, Laminate, and LVP Flooring
Updating your flooring is a great way to dramatically change the look of your home. Nowadays there are so many options, it can feel a little overwhelming trying to pick out what is right for you. In our opinion, the best way to narrow it down is to figure out what you need out of your floor. Do you have dogs? Are they big dogs, small dogs or don’t want to get off the couch dogs? Dogs that have lots of energy and enough body weight will eventually scratch a pre-finished floor. If this is the case for you perhaps you would be better off going with a durable laminate or LVP floor. These floors both have lots of options that will hold up to any dog or child. Some cannot be scratched even when it is intentional. Both floors have many waterproof and water-resistant options available as well. If scratching is not a concern, then perhaps a pre-finished hardwood floor is the right choice for you. These floors are often much cheaper than a traditional sand in place hardwood floor. Saving a large amount of money on sanding and finishing labor. They also have the added benefit of being able to be sanded years down the road. Whether something happened to your floor or it is just time for another change, you will save a lot of money at that time only paying for the floor to be sanded and finished again. Whatever floor is right for you and your lifestyle, MC Construction is here to point you in the right direction and help you make the right choice for you and your family. Tearing out old flooring can be a messy job. Some floors are worse than others. For example, carpet hardly makes a mess and is very easy to remove without disturbing the rest of the home. Tile on the other hand, makes a huge mess. Unfortunately, there is no way around it. However, we do everything possible to keep your home clean. We start by taking plastic and covering all your cabinets, your TV’s, and anything else that needs protection from dust. We also make sure the thermostat is turned to the off position while were working. This ensures that were not spreading dust throughout the rest of the house through the ductwork. If necessary, we also use zip-poles with plastic to create a temporary wall to stop dust from going to any areas that need protected. We care about your home and appreciate you letting us work in it. That is why we do everything possible to respect both your home, and you.
Designing and installing custom staircases is another service that MC Construction offers. Whether your interested in making some small changes to your existing staircase or wanting to start from scratch, we are here to help. We have access to everything that is available on the market. Whatever your vision is, we have the means to turn it into a reality. Just like anything else we do; the first step is to listen to our customers idea’s and thoughts about the project. Staircases have many different options available to create different looks, it is often helpful to narrow it down to a particular style. This makes it easy to select the look that is right for you. Here are a few examples of the more common staircase jobs we take on. The most common is removing the carpet from your stairs and installing new treads and risers. This is an easy way to transform the look of your staircase without tearing the whole thing apart. Solid treads and risers create a nice traditional look. However, it has become quite common for people to install a pre-finished hardwood, laminate, or LVP throughout the house and continue that same look going up the stairs. Another common staircase job we take on is, starting over. Sometimes things about our homes just need to go away and never be seen again. We understand this and are here to make it happen. When this is the case, the first thing that we like to do is talk about safety. Removing a handrail and everything that is included in that can be extremely dangerous for anyone not aware of their surroundings. That is why we make sure everyone involved is aware of the danger. If pets or children are a factor, we need to talk about how they can be in the home safely before starting. After we have decided how to proceed, we remove the old staircase and do any necessary prep work. Once that is done, we have a clean slate to work off and can begin creating your dream staircase.
