Dingy basement? Dated kitchen? Not sure where to start when it comes to renovating? This New Westminster construction company can help transform your space into the home of your dreams.
Magnum Construction Services is a full general contracting business, specializing in kitchen, bathroom and business renovations crafted with care by friendly, creative, passionate and reliable skilled trades people.
“We’re definitely the go-to one stop shop,” says Yosef Pharaon, site supervisor for Magnum. “From inside to outside, we can make your renovation dreams come true.”
Established in 2017, the company has already gained recognition for its quality work and excellent customer service. Magnum was recently named as a top five finalist in the2020 Small Business BC Awards.
“It was great to be nominated, especially in such a short time after being established,” Pharaon says.
Pharaon says that Magnum’s excellent client communication is what sets their business apart.
“It comes down to the fact that we are really good communicators and we are very responsive to our clients needs,” Pharaon says. “We are really interested in the relationship with clients, and building relationships is our strong point.”
Part of maintaining that strong relationship is respect for their clients’ time. When Magnum says they will start at 9 a.m., they’re knocking on the client’s door at 8:55 a.m. Magnum also tries to do as much advance work as possible to minimize the actual time on site. Clients don’t have to worry about enduring a drawn-out construction zone.
“Once we get a job, we execute as much as possible in advance to cut down on construction time,” Pharaon says. “We’ve been able to shave weeks off jobs that way.”
Magnum Constructions Services’ commitment to quality is a cornerstone of its business. They pledge to only work with the best materials available and provide a one-year guarantee on all labor. They also never compromise quality for rushing a job.
“We give our clients realistic schedules that accommodate their lives,” Pharaon says. “We strive for honest customer service, so contracts are only paid in full when the finished work is to our clients’ complete satisfaction.”
Pharaon has been in the construction and renovation business since 2006. He was drawn to the industry after growing up around renovations, assisting his father with fixing up investment properties.
“My dad bought and sold over a dozen homes and I was helping him,” Pharaon says. “He was the kind of dad who taught by trial and error. I learned a lot of things that way. My Dad’s interest in home improvement was the catalyst for me to get into the business.”
While the thought of taking on a renovation project can be intimidating for those who have never experienced it before, Magnum helps guide clients through the process in an approachable, transparent way.
“When I see clients who are really new at this and they don’t have experience in the renovations industry, I always keep it low level so I can explain using language that is approachable,” Pharaon says. “It helps to keep them at ease and keep it light.”
Not sure where to start with a renovation? For those who know they want to fix up a space in their home, but aren’t sure what they want or what that may look like, Magnum also offers access to designers who can map out exactly what an update could look like and works with clients to get the vision right.
They also offer options for what can be accomplished and work to all budgets.
“Some people have no limit, some people only have a certain budget to work within,” Pharaon says. “We always like to present clients with an a, b, or c option for work that can be done. Even if they aren’t ready to go in for a full renovation, we can show them the changes they could make. We like to give everyone an opportunity to experience their dream renovation.”
