Our commitment to client satisfaction is at the heart of all we do. A positive end to the building process is our most valued reward and the most important outcome of every Vaughan Construction Management project. Here’s what our past clients have shared with us:

I am pleased to provide this reference letter setting out my positive experiences for approximately 12 years with John Vaughan and those who work for his company Vaughan Construction Management (VCM). Until recently my wife and I were proud owners of a house that was built in 1923 and there were a number of maintenance issue over the years where VCM promptly and effectively undertook the necessary work at a reasonable competitive price. ( I am well familiar with building costs having recently built a custom cottage and I litigate insurance and construction cases where such matters are the subject of considerable industry evidence.) Prior to the sale of the home we did extensive renovation undertaken by VCM to a first class standard, on budget, on schedule and reasonably priced.

I have owned a townhouse and a condo apartment since 1989 in Toronto that have both undergone extensive renovation, repair and maintenance from time to time and again all work undertaken by VCM was on schedule, within budget, reasonably priced and workmanship to a first class standard.

I have no hesitation in strongly recommending VCM as a "top shelf" and "first rate" builder/contractor for new construction, renovation, repair and maintenance.

Having no understanding of construction and committing such a significant amount of money to our renovation, it was a great comfort to have someone like John working with us to manage everything and to keep us informed, step by step. As we were actively engaged in the process, any questions or concerns were answered quickly and explained in an informative and friendly manner.

His trades were courteous and conscientious. and they were all very understanding of the needs of our family and how important it was for the project to stay on budget and on schedule. Our renovation more than met our expectations and we look forward to working with Vaughan Construction again on our next project.

Peter Higgins Architect Inc. (PHA) continues to have a positive working relationship with Vaughan Construction Management (VCM), having started working together in 2007. We have successfully completed projects in Hogg’s Hollow, Moore Park, Rosedale and Leaside, ranging in construction value from $500,000 to $1,000,000.

Throughout that time, we’ve particularly noticed the consistency of VCM’s sub trades from project to project, which explains both the exceptional finished quality of VCM projects and their ability to foster strong working relationships with everyone involved.

As an Architect, it’s always rewarding when the finished product properly reflects the intended design, and we have found that VCM can consistently deliver this level of attention to detail which invariably results in a beautiful home.

It’s our pleasure to continue to recommend VCM to future clients, and we look forward to maintaining and further building upon our long working relationship with VCM.

Building a custom home is a challenging and "emotionally" demanding experience for the homeowner. Vaughan construction made the process satisfying for us in a number of ways. I was especially impressed with John's hands on, approach. Throughout the course of the project, John made himself available 7 days a week and was deeply committed, on a personal level to having the project completed to our satisfaction. Although the actual construction was completed in nine months ( faster than anticipated), we worked with Vaughan construction in the planning, design and quoting process for close to two years in total.  The pre construction budgeting process was extremely helpful and remarkably accurate.  Our project was planned and completed on a tight budget and Vaughan Construction was able to work well with us on this basis.

The neighbor relations were outstanding at all times. There have been no complaints from any of our neighbors, and in fact we have received numerous compliments from them thanking us for the consideration of the construction crew. In almost all cases we utilized trades that were recommended by Vaughan construction. They were the best to deal with, friendly and competent.  We would definitely recommend Vaughan construction.  John was particularly good at anticipating issues that he felt we would not be happy about. We were able to deal with these up front, and expeditiously so neither the product, schedule nor functionality of our home would be affected.

"We really enjoyed working with Vaughan Construction Management. They used a project management approach to our major renovation which really helped in looking at the overall scope and keeping track of our budget. 

We appreciated the recommendations along the way that enhanced the project beautifully.

We feel very satisfied and we have had a lot of compliments on the design and finished product. 

A major renovation or new home construction is likely one of the largest expenditures that a family will undertake. Trust in the builder is paramount. Equally as important is for the homeowner to understand completely the scope of what they are undertaking and the money required to complete it. We found Vaughan Construction Management to be flexible and accommodating when inevitable issues arose.

We would recommend Vaughan Construction Management to our friends and colleagues without hesitation."

Once we made the decision to build we interviewed at least five well-recommended builders. John Vaughan really stood out in the group due to his willingness to discuss actual price, his strong business sense and his down to earth likeable personality.

Three and a half years after moving in we have no regrets! John was always available during the build and just as available for follows ups (no matter how small) once we moved in. The site supervisor Jamie was a huge asset to the job. He dealt very well with the different tradespeople, kept us informed and helped keep things moving.

Timing and budget were very important to us going into the project and Vaughan Construction did not disappoint. Most importantly though, we have come to appreciate the quality that went into this project. Attention to detail was very

important to John and Jamie and the house really shows it. We recommend Vaughan Construction Management to friends and neighbours whenever the subject of building comes up. For a great building experience and a finished project second to none, Vaughan Construction is the way to go.

I recommend, without reservation, Vaughan Construction Management as a builder. On the recommendation of my architect I engaged Vaughan to build a home for me. The workmanship was superb and was carried out within the timelines and budgets that had been provided to me. Vaughan was also fair and considerate with respect to the pricing of any extras that, over the course of the work, I chose to ask for. I should also say that my neighbours were, without exception, extremely pleased with Vaughan for having consulted with them about the construction process so as to minimize disruption to them and for his crew having maintained a clean and safe work site throughout. Again I highly recommend Vaughan.
