Mather Fine Homes’ professional and organized approach, attention to detail, skilled craftsmanship and deep understanding of the design/build process as a whole sets them far apart from their competition. They came in on time and on budget on a substantial renovation project for me–a rare feat in the industry. It was an exceptional experience; I recommend them without hesitation.

On behalf of Patrick and I, I would like to thank you for your excellent work on our condo at 65 Harbour Square. We have had numerous compliments on the quality and the detail of the renovations and we have provided your name to friends and neighbours who have admired the outcome and inquired after you. It was a pleasure working with you and Adam. Best wishes with all of your future projects!
We employed the services of Alan Mather in 2000 to build a new home for us in the Cricket Club area. His expertise in guiding us through the entire process, from design ideas through the Committee of Adjustment, to the final stages of finishing touches was invaluable. Although we came to the project with many ideas of our own, Alan helped us to clarify our needs, offered countless suggestions and guided us through the planning and purchasing of all required products. His choice of trades people proved to be first class professional workers and all of the work was finished within the required time. We felt very well-served by Alan, who was always very thorough and professional in all of our dealings with him. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to build a new home.
As a registered Interior Designer with decades of experience in commercial and residential construction, I have worked with many Builders. It was my good fortune to meet Alan during the construction of my client’s Rosedale residence and to work with him on two subsequent projects he managed for the same client. Alan’s attention to detail and commitment to excellence always produced an outstanding product. When it came time to renovate my own home, it was an obvious choice to have Alan and Adam handle the job.
We truly enjoyed, partnering with you to create this beautiful home. Our family will have many years of happiness thanks to your great vision!

Alan’s design and construction of our first house was a combination of excellent functionality and discreet elegance. When we moved to Calgary, it was an easy decision to invite Alan to lead the design process. His quality of work, selection of materials and attention to detail is only exceeded by his master for design that incorporated all of our desired elements.
One key issue in choosing our builder was to find someone who was reliable, available and easy to work with. Alan was well recommended to us, and the reputation was well-earned. We stated from the outset that we wanted the construction to be enjoyable—and it was. Alan managed the development of our new home, starting with recommending the Architect through to completion. We were impressed with his ability to ensure that the design accomplished our objectives and at the same time create an elegant and functional home. His suggestions were helpful and his appreciation of the small details gave us the quality product we sought. It was delivered on time and on budget, and our design objectives were met. Since completion whenever we have a concern or item requiring attention he is always available.

Adam and Alan rebuilt my home in 2010 from the studs and created a masterpiece. From my initial home search to the day I moved in to the finished product, from permits to material selection, the Mathers made sure that everything was done the “right way”. What I was told by others would be “the most stressful time of my life” felt easy with the Mathers, who finished the job on time, and on budget. I am proud to count the Mathers as close friends and have not hesitated to recommend them to friends and clients to this day.
I have referred many clients to Mather Fine Homes over the years. I have done so with the utmost confidence that my clients will be handled professionally and honestly at every step of the way. The development of a blank canvas home into a finished Mather Home is incredible! The team of Adam and Alan implicitly understand the nuances of what creates value from a real estate investment standpoint and usability/functionality of a home. We have had countless conversations in homes over the years about what makes for the best renovation work and styling of the home specific to the neighbourhood. It astounds me with what extensive knowledge they have about some of the finest neighbourhoods in Toronto. I find myself learning something new each time we meet. I can recommend Mather Fine Homes to anyone who is looking for the straight goods, open dialogue and communication, a team that has great perspective and comes in on budget and on time. All of my past clients who have used their services, to this very day, rave about their work and commitment after the fact to ensure their needs have been met. Nothing makes me more comfortable then to refer their workmanship and management to clients, I have the confidence in knowing the job will be completed at the highest level.

In 18 years of owning various homes, no kitchen or washroom gets past me untouched. I consider myself a very capable, intermediate renovator who has experience using a variety of contractors along the way. I undertook a complete, top to bottom, gut renovation of a typical Toronto semi-detached house with Mather Fine Homes. My project was small in size but large in scope, given the extent of work; including underpinning the basement & converting an exterior porch into a highly functional entry to the home.
There was some uncertainty regarding particular elements of the restoration & renovation, which were noted in advance. Due to the knowledge, experience, collaborative rapport & problem solving expertise that the Mathers brought to the project I can confidently say I felt well prepared for the possibilities and therefore, there were no surprises.
All budget adjustments were made as informed choices, at my sole discretion. The project was otherwise completed entirely on budget, as quoted. In fact, I had money left in my secret “contingency fund”.
Along the way I appreciated the recommendations, expertise & guidance from Mather Fine Homes. They were fully engaged in the process, listening to my concerns, adopting my vision & respecting my priorities all while executing to a noteworthy standard. Since moving in, I have come to most appreciate the “after sales” service regarding questions and/or items needing follow-up. I am thrilled with the final product, especially the quality of workmanship & keen attention to detail.
I don’t know when, I don’t know where but there will be another project AND the Mathers will be a key part of my team! Without hesitation I would recommend Mather Fine Homes (and have on many occasions). In my experience, they may not have the lowest quote but they will have the most accurate one with the added assurance of a job well done!
