About this pro

How does your service stand out?

We, at McMahon's Home Improvement stand by our tagline, "We'll handle your project professionally from concept to completion.", very seriously. We do what we say we will do when we say we will do it, which is quite different from the experiences our clients have said they experienced prior to coming to us. We give 5-year written warrantees on most projects because we stand behind our high quality work. Our account manager stays in close communication with clients through every step of their projects and are ever available to assist them with any question or need. So it's not just the quality of work we do that makes us different, but rather HOW we do it that stands us head and shoulders above most companies.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The satisfaction of making our clients happy is very intoxicating, and because we are a home improvement company that offers services that cover all phases of major home projects, the variety that each project entails keeps us stimulated.

    I didn't know where to turn to repair a roof problem resulting in water literally pouring into our home during a storm. A friend recommended McMahon and we couldn't be more grateful. Unfortunately we had multiple roofing and plumbing emergencies within a few weeks and Tom came through 100% in each case with immediate responses and impeccable repairs. Tom even responded on a Saturday night and arrived with two associates early Sunday morning to address the problem. We will use McMahon in the future for our home repairs.

    All of the work that we wanted done was completed expertly and on time. They went out of their way to make sure we were kept aware of everything that was happening and to get our preferences. We had our basement finished, and when unforeseen additions had to be made to the total work done, we were immediately told and together we made decisions on how to proceed. Overall, we had a great experience with MHI.

    I had a problem with mold in my attic, caused by improper ventilation from the exhaust fan in my upstairs bathroom. I called up McMahon's Home Improvement, and spoke with Amy, who was very pleasant and helpful. She quickly arranged for Mr. McMahon to come out and give me an estimate to fix the problem. Mr. McMahon diagnosed the problem and gave me a very reasonable estimate to remove the mold and create proper venting of the bathroom exhaust. I hired McMahon's Home Improvement, and they did the job on schedule for the price quoted. I was very pleased with the quality of their work and the professionalism of the whole organization. I would recommend them to anyone who needs repair work or construction done on their home.

    This is much more than a review....it is a history of our, relationship with Tom McMahon. It all started with hurricane Irene, several years ago, when we had water damage to our house. Tom came In and repaired all the damage as well as putting some measures in place to make sure that our basement would never flood again. Since then, he has remodeled our kitchen, bathrooms, (2), turned three separate bedrooms into a huge master bedroom with a walk in closet, built a man cave in the basement, put in an elevator to help my wife with her mobility issues, and a heated walkway for the same reason. His most recent project was to close in our 16x20 deck into an amazing three season room. Tom is the best contractor you will ever use BAR NONE,!! He works with you all the way through the project and will not rest until it is perfect. He is the only "outsider" I have ever used who treated my home as if it were his own. He is an amazing craftsman and will never cut corners.

    I work at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center in Kingston. McMahon's Home Improvement was hired to work on the roof of the building and to remove and replace the capitals. They did a beautiful job on both fronts. The office is always great to deal with and they were very patient with us as we went through some staff transitions. One day, a window in our ED's office shattered without warning. I called Tom McMahon and he came over right away to look at it, then brought his window guy with him and by the end of the day, the window was fixed. You don't find that kind of service just anywhere. I would highly recommend McMahon's to do work for you, whether it's residential, commercial or business. We would use them again in a second.

    We had a relatively straight forward project-removal and replacement of a French door with a French slider to our porch. Log house made it a bit challenging for removal and fitting. Got a better price for custom configuration through local William's Lumber, so MHI said get it there and then provided recommendations for inspecting the door upon delivery. Trying to get door installed around holiday travel plans and MHI worked with me to get that done. Said it might take 2 days. Crew showed up on time and battled through a ton of glue and caulk and 8-inch spikes to remove the old door. They had the new door in, customized casement trim, and the work area cleaned up by mid afternoon. And through all that with the door out they did not let our indoor cat escape. Several other upcoming interior and exterior projects planned for the next year and will definitely look to MHI when I am ready.

    I had McMahon's Home Improvement install a masonry patio along with a retaining wall and built-in natural gas grill. The job was spectacular and went very smoothly. I have immediately become the envy of the neighborhood!

    Well into the process of installing our new front door, the workers discovered a serious and substantive structural problem that was beyond their expertise and authority. The installation came to an immediate halt, the massive hole was boarded up and Tom McMahon was contacted. He and his crew literally came to the rescue that very day. Tom and his crew were consummate professionals in every sense of the word. Their knowledge and skills were immediately evident and reassuring. This know-how as well as the commitment to the highest standards of workmanship, the attention to detail and the ever-present professional demeanor were especially appreciated. No time was wasted; the work place was well organized; quality materials were used and Tom made certain that we understood what was being done every step of the way and the rationale for it. Within days and with little or no disruption to our household, the structural problems were resolved and the work was completed: our front entrance door was beautiful inside and out. Without hesitation, we highly and enthusiastically recommend McMahon's Home Improvement; you won't be disappointed.

    The job involved repairing a pair of sliding barn doors and the exterior painting of our house. The carpentry work on the doors was excellent, and the painting job was neat and has held up very well. Tom McMahon was always very professional in all his interactions with me.

    Tom bid the job lower than I expected, and the job was done on time and at the bid price. I was very pleased with the quality of the work and the amount of time it took to get it done. Tom was a pleasure to work with.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
In our field, every vendor we use sponsors continuing education events to showcase new products, methods and project management tools, and we attend those we hope will further our knowledge base. Then there is Internet study, monthly trade journals, Home Shows, and peer groups, etc, that help us to stay sharp.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We love to build and do major remodels, turning a space that was once cramped and not of maximum value to the homeowner into a gem they love to use. We have transformed small homes to larger, closed spaces to open, added on, raised the roof or finished the basement so that Mom could move in. We've turned drab kitchens and bathrooms into showpieces, and have ensured homeowners' families' safety by replacing failing roofs and unsafe framing. When building an addition, we do it all, from the foundation to the roof, basically, every specialty needed to complete it.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A lovely soon to be retired couple wanted to remodel their "forever home" . Recently married, they wanted to make a house the husband had owned and raised a family in for decades into one that would serve them the rest of their lives. One of the design challenges was in making sure that everything we did made life easier for his new bride who suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis. We combine two bedrooms into one huge master suite with custom walk-in closet. We then expanded the existing upstairs bath and installed a large custom-tiled, curbless, shower with bench with a linear wall drain so that there would never be a barrier to her getting into the shower. It is a two-story house, and we needed to find a way to get her easily from the garage to the upstairs Master without her having to use stairs. To solve that, we installed a heated cement ramp from the back of the garage, that absolutely will not freeze in any winter weather, down to a door where she could easily enter into a private interior lift that brings her from the basement level straight into her bedroom, safely and quietly. We finished the project with an open concept kitchen remodel, a video of which you can find on our website.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The experience of remodeling your home can be an exciting endeavor as long as you have hired the right team of professionals. Find out what you can online about the company by checking out any ratings and looking at their facebook page. For example, to learn more about us, go to our home improvement forum on facebook, McMahon's Home Improvement Forum, where we provide homeowners with remodeling tips, news, and design ideas. It is also a place to get to know us as well as view amazing, before and after remodeling videos and photos of actual projects we've accomplished. Get references from prospective contracting companies you are considering, and specifically, references to people who have had projects similar to yours done with the company you are considering, Then, CALL THEM ALL.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish they knew how much I love my company and the work we do, and that although bad contractors have caused many to fear every contractor, they have nothing to fear from me or my company. Again, in every case, get references and check every reference provided.
