About Mel McLoughlin Carpentry & Tiling


While my building expertise and methods are are as modern as can be, I ply my trade with an increasingly rare old-world work ethic of integrity and careful workmanship. Integrity involves clear and honest communication with the homeowner, promptness, neatness, and respect for you and your property. My commitment to careful workmanship requires that what I build stand the test of time, that each job is done with care and thoroughness. 

I was very impressed with Mel. He came over to give me an estimate on a job I thought was going to be pretty expensive, based on an estimate I had gotten elsewhere. He told me it really only needed patching and recommended someone to do the job. He could have totally lied to me and charged me a lot of money, but he didn’t! Not only that, but he arrived exactly when he said he would, and he was very nice. I will definitely call him for any work I’d like done in the future.

…There is a LOT to be said for [Mel’s] level of dedication in the contracting world, where I’ve commonly found that folks a) overcharge b) fail to show up when they promised c) leave the job incomplete d) do a rushed, shoddy job.  Sometimes nearly all of the above.  Mel has integrity and is trustworthy.  So much so, that I’ve been perfectly comfortable loaning him keys to my house so he can work while I’m away.
