Kitchen Renovation

Tim & Camille Papadopoulos                                               Kitchen/Load Bearing Wall


Professional, Punctual, Responsive

We had MaKenady Construction renovate the main floor of our home by removing a load bearing wall and replacing it with a recessed beam.
To accomplish this, they had to reroute HVAC supply and cold air return lines, plumbing water supply lines, plumbing drain lines and vents and of course electrical. They needed to access our finished basement ceiling cavities in order to reroute HVAC.
All of this was done to accommodate our new kitchen, remodeled main floor bathroom and new, larger foyer closet. Scott and his team were on the job 5 days a week and 8 hours a day until the job was complete and we were 100% satisfied. They were on budget and on time with the reno. They worked with us from the start to design and implement ideas and were very accommodating and understanding to changes we needed to make in the design along the way. The result was a beautifully finished main floor, a basement that was left looking as good or better than before they arrived and a surprisingly stress free and smooth process from beginning to end which took less than 3 months. I would not hesitate to recommend Scott and MaKenady Construction Services to anyone and am proud to show off their work to all of my family and friends. Thanks again to Scott, Brendan and Brian for doing exactly what they promised, as promised with expert craftsmanship.

Dream Porch - Dream Team!

Our General Contractor, Makenady Construction Services made our dream wrap around porch a reality! Scott and his entire team were amazing to work with from the very early stages of design, material selection to incredible attention to detail on the finishes. Living in a historic district required additional approvals. Scott and his entire team collaborated with the Town of Whitby and Heritage Planning to navigate design and material considerations. While in the construction and build phase there was constant and open communication on progress, challenges or decisions that required our attention. The level of transparency and engagement was incredible and we were kept well informed. The design and construction incorporated many custom elements such as french quarter natural gas lanterns, hand spun spindles & balusters and mix of natural and engineered materials. The level of craftsmanship was impressive and the attention to detail on the finishes make a lasting impression. The team was always very mindful of the job site and were diligent to leave the site clean each day. We couldn’t be happier with the entire Makenady team. Our wrap around porch compliments and enhances the historic neighbour and will be a centrepiece of the home for years to come. We liked their work so much we have already booked them for our basement renovation!

Home Renovation With Basement Apartment- Fire Restoration - 2000 Sq.Ft.


I may not have known it at the time, but when I first contacted Scott Guillot from MaKenady Construction Services Inc., this turned out to be a great phone call. I had a house fire that completely gutted my home with a legal basement apartment. For 2 years, the contractor that the insurance company hired left me hanging with a shingled roof that leaked, windows that where installed crooked and several failed inspections. Finally after 2 years, the insurance company allowed me to find my own general contractor, because nothing was getting done or was done wrong. Did I mention that I am also a senior citizen. After meeting Scott and his construction crew, he was quick to provide an estimate and promised that the work would get done and I could move back in 4 months. After everything I went through with the last contractor, I was very hesitant in trusting another contractor. Scott told me that MaKenady Construction Services Inc. was named after his daughter Makena and his son Kenady and that these names stood for commitment, reliability and trust. Well Scott and his crew proved themselves right. Another good thing was that I never had to talk to anybody else about my home. If I had any problems or concerns, I would talk to Scott and he would take care of the problem. They completed the insulation, the drywall, the kitchens, the bathrooms, the heating, the air conditioner, the electrical, the stairs, etc. They took care of re-engaging with the city inspectors as they also had a negative experience with the other contractor. I wish I would have known about Scott before the house fire, because then I would have known that I had nothing to worry about and that I would be back home soon enough.

General Contractor Commercial Renovation

Whitby Chiropractic Wellness Center -

Commercial Renovation Medical Services 2000 Sq.Ft.

Scott and his team at MaKenady Construction tackled the rebuild of our Chiropractic Office over a year ago. It’s hard to believe we have been enjoying our space for that long already. From selection of our new space to it’s demolition, redesign, permitting, and construction, Scott’s attention to detail with the project was beyond our expectations. He executed our plans on time and on budget with exceptional communication and adaptability at every stage. He and his team even helped with every final small detail to ensure that we could move our clinic with minimal down time. We love every aspect of our new space and are beyond grateful that we chose Scott for the project!

Joe Hunwicks  - Home Addition - 400 Sq. FT

Our experience with Scott and the people who worked on the addition to our home was very satisfying. The various teams went about their work in the same manner that I have always applied myself to. They treated the project as if it were there own property that was being worked on. One example is something that occurred on several occasions and consisted of them offering up suggestions for improvements that were beyond the design. I wouldn't hesitate to have them back for another project in the future.

Graham Arnold - Kitchen, Load Bearing Wall, Home Renovation


Scott and his team were beyond professional. Scott was always available to take my calls if I had questions or concerns, and he was more than willing to adjust or add to the list if requested. His team is knowledgeable, skilled, and respectful of us and our home. They managed a large renovation (kitchen, wall removal, flooring, lighting, closet installation) in the time frame agreed upon and Scott's payment structure ensures there are no surprises or hidden expenses. The project finished on budget, on time, and turned out beautifully. We would definitely use MaKenady Construction Services again!
