    I am new to Austin and did not know where to begin to find a reputable and honest contractor. Jeff was recommended to me by a co-worker and I knew from our first meeting that I had found the right man for the job. Although my master bath remodel was not large in size it was a complete demolition and all of the plumbing had to be moved which involved quite a bit of jackhammering so it was a large job in scope. All of the people from McKay Vassaur (MV) and their sub-contractors were easy to work with and reliable. I had to move into the home prior to completion of the project but every day the MV team made sure that everything was cleaned up before I returned home from work in the evenings. The job was completed timely and Jeff and Eric went above and beyond to please me and my OCD tendencies! They made what could have been a stressful project seamless and enjoyable. I will not hesitate to contact MV for my next project and highly recommend them to any and all looking for a reliable and honest contractor. It was truly a pleasure working with Jeff, Eric and the rest of the MV team.

    Jeff, I hope you get lots of jobs because you are a great contractor, and your crews do wonderful work. We love our kitchen!

    When I came home today, the guys had just finished the wainscoting and painting – I LOVE IT! It’s absolutely perfect and exactly what I wanted – even better than I envisioned. Your crew was professional, respectful, and skilled – it’s so comforting working with you because we know we will get exceptional service and a completed job beyond our expectations. I can’t wait to see the wood floors – the room will be incredible with that final touch! I will definitely recommend you to everyone we know and I can’t wait to have more things done in the future. Please let me know if I need to make an additional payment for the job – I know it’s taken a bit to get an appointment with Rennie, and I didn’t want you to have to wait if you needed to pay the guys for what’s been completed already. Thanks for everything!

    I wanted to send you the info on a General contractor for your referral directory. His name is Jeff Vassaur. He is the owner at McKay Vassaur Total Construction. He is a “stand up” guy and runs a great business. I have worked with him in the past and would give his name out to anyone looking for a contractor. His job scope is small to large. Decks, room additions, bathroom/kitchen remodels, outdoor patios and everything in between. Again, as a former contractor I would not hesitate to have Jeff do any work for me or for anyone I know.

    Thank you for doing a great job on our covered patio project. Your professionalism from the start was appreciated and your honesty and forthrightness were refreshing. We are thrilled with the finished product; it looks like it was part of the house from the beginning. Thank you too for the way you handled the hiccups that occurred during the project. When one footer got poured in the wrong location you said you’d make it right and you did. When the gutter downspouts appeared where they weren’t supposed to be you took care of that too. Looking good and being a man of your word is easy when a project goes perfectly. Its when things don’t go according to plan (which seems to happen a lot in life and construction!) that you see the true character come through. Yours came through shining and intact-that is a real blessing to us. I won’t hesitate to have you bid on future projects and have already recommended you to several friends who have seen the before and after first hand and are as impressed as we are.

    If you have a desire for more downstairs closet space in the Meritage Nelson or Armstrong floor plans, there is hope. There is a similar plan in phase II, but I’m not sure of the name. It’s the plan similar to the old Meritage model home with the courtyard. There is at least 27 square feet of dead space under the stairs that I and at least two other home owners have turned into a nice closet. It’s a great place for coats and anything else you want/need to store. I chose McKay Vassaur Total Construction to do the job. Jeff Vassaur formerly worked for Meritage Homes and he is his crew did a fantastic job. I have never had a construction project go so well. I recommend them for ANY home project. Contact Jeff Vassuar for all your construction needs

    We appreciate how “painless” you made the construction process for us. We have had terrible luck in the past, so thank you.

    Cheryl Durkop

    Just an FYI – I was able to secure a very favorable concession on repairs from the Seller based in party on your excellent advice. Thanks again for taking the time to do so – it truly made a difference in this transaction! You’re the best. I will absolutely refer all my clients to your company!

    I hired Jeff Vassaur of McKay Total Construction to update 2 1960′s bathrooms that were in desperate need of remodeling. The most difficult aspect of the job was cutting concrete to move 2 fixtures. I had a basic idea of how I wanted the bathrooms to look when we were done. Jeff recommended an architect and we promptly began the remodel. Jeff was pleasant, detail oriented, and professional. Jeff’s work crews kept the job as clean as possible and the work was done to my satisfaction. As with any remodel, we ran into glitches or needed last minute changes but Jeff and I worked together to resolve any and all issues quickly and smoothly. The end product was exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend Jeff Vassaur of McKay Vassaur for any kind of construction project. My new bathrooms are gorgeous and and I am enjoying the new master bathroom immensely. It was a pleasure doing business with McKay Total Construction.

    Living Downtown in a high rise condo I was very careful with who I hired to complete our home improvement project. Jeff Vassaur was hired to stain concrete in our downtown condo. Meeting Jeff the first time I knew he was very professional. Everything was done in the time frame they promised. From the estimate to the final product was delivered. He kept us updated constantly and His team made our floors look amazing. I will and have refereed Jeff and his company to many of my friends.

    McKay Vassaur Total Construction built a covered backyard patio extension for our family. We were very pleased with both the process and the outcome. The project bid was promptly prepared, reasonably priced and complete. Jeff Vassaur was easy to work with, flexible, customer oriented and very accommodating. He kept us well informed, throughout the process. The finished product was beautiful. We highly recommend McKay Vassaur to anyone looking to build or remodel.

    My husband and I hired Jeff Vassaur of McKay Vassaur Total Construction to build a flex room addition over our third car garage. We weren’t exactly sure how the process would go but we were both very pleased with the result. Jeff was a delight to work with. He was very comprehensive in getting the work done. He has a good rapore with his subcontractors whose work was very professional and they all showed up on time. He communicated every detail of the project with us and kept in touch daily, either in person or by phone, to make sure that things were on track. One of our stressors included matching the existing exterior brick so that the addition would flow well with the rest of the home. Jeff made that happen. Jeff was easy to work with, he listened to our concerns and above all, we found him to be trustworthy and honest. We’d definitely use him again for any future remodels.

    As an owner of Artisan Properties, LLC, my partner and I were in desperate need of a reputable builder with quality subcontractors to handle the complete demolition and rebuild of an investment property we purchased at 2405 Lawnmont Drive in Shoal Creek that was originally built in the late 1970′s. We tore our property down to the ground, added an addition to the slab, and rebuilt everything else from the ground up, including framing, electrical, plumbing, flooring, sheetrock, interior/exterior paint and all aspects of finish out. Jeff was a true professional throughout and without his direction and excellent connections with high quality and responsive subcontractors we would have been in serious trouble. Jeff oversaw all the work and completed the project on time. The combination of our solid design and Jeff’s wonderful execution of the build helped us to sell our $500,000 home in about 45 days. I would strongly recommend Jeff for any home building or renovation project, no matter how big or small.

    The Wheeler family highly recommends McKay Vassaur Total Construction for any project you may be planning. They have completed 3 projects for our family. The projects completed include a patio addition, porch addition and a sidewalk running the length of our house and connecting to the back patio. We love to spend time outside and really love the work they have done. We will definitely use McKay Vassaur Total Construction again for any future projects.

    I would recommend Jeff in a heartbeat! He is so very good, and he seems to know the very best people who specialize in whatever fields they are in. Jeff was our contractor on our kitchen, floor tile, lighting, and many other things two years ago. We absolutely love the finished project. In fact, we just had him over last Friday to give estimates on replacing tile surrounds in 2 baths, tile floors in one bath and our utility room, replacement lighting in our kitchen (we didn’t think of that when we remodeled it), and other things. Jeff makes sure things are kept clean, his granite guy was an artist who absolutely loves his granite work, he had a guy who refinished our bottom cabinets, and they EXACTLY match the top ones, and there are so many things I can’t remember. I do know he was excellent on our last project, and am confident he will be on any job. That is just the way he is.

    We used McKay Vassaur Total Construction for three jobs at our home: painting the interior, installing hard-wood floors, and replacing our hail damaged roof. All jobs were thoroughly completed on time and went beyond our expectations for beauty and price. We will recommend McKay Vassaur Total Construction to anyone looking for highest quality professional workmanship and construction.

    Kudos to Jeff Vassaur of McKay Vassaur Total Construction for the awesome job that he and his crew did on the rebuilding of our family home. The demolishing and rebuilding was completed in a timely manner. We were kept informed from the pouring of the foundation to the last nail being hammered. The home we have now we could have never imagined how beautiful it would be both inside and outside. We have received so many compliments on the house from friends and neighbors it gives us great pride to show it off. McKay Vassar Total Construction, you rock!!!

    Jeff Vassaur did a project for me replacing a window in my home with an exterior door. From proposal to completion everything was done very professionally. He was attentive to my concerns to disrupt my life as minimally as possible – tented the construction area thoroughly to contain the construction debris and stayed with his subcontractors from start to finish to ensure that if any problems arose that could be dealt with in real-time. I highly recommend Jeff for any construction or remodel project anyone has in their future.

    After relocating to Texas from Minnesota, I was in search of a well-built house that I could call home. The house that Jeff and his crew built was absolutely head and shoulders above the rest in my opinion. I am not only happy with the completed house, I really appreciate that Jeff insured to mature Oaks on the lot were saved. I’ve lived in my home for six months now and I truly love it! I felt comfortable working with Jeff right from the start. He has been knowledgeable, dependable, honest and respectable to name a few. I recommend Jeff for any construction projects be that big or small.

    Jacqueline Gabbert

    Jeff is the ultimate professional and his team did a fantastic job! Jeff remodeled a bathroom for us on a rental property that we have in Zilker Park. I knew Jeff was a professional from our first meeting. He was very good about keeping us updated from the beginning to the end of the project. The tile work looks amazing, his team was clean and they worked very quickly. Our project was done in a timely manner and on budget. I would recommend anyone to use McKay Vassaur Total Construction. Your project will not only look will de done very well! We will be using McKay Vassaur Total Construction in the future. Thanks, Jeff!

    McKay Vassaur recently completed a complicated home addition for us, and the customer service and workmanship are outstanding. We added a “mother-in-law” apartment in the space above the garage and master bath area, which involved raising the roof, along with additional mechanicals. Jeff kept us informed as we went along, and his sub-contractors are excellent craftsmen. I cannot say enough about the finished space. Jeff assisted in choosing fixtures, etc., providing advice and suggestions as needed. We were very comfortable allowing the workers to enter the house when we were not home, and Jeff was on site daily to make certain that there were no problems, and there were no avoidable inconveniences. We will certainly call McKay Vassaur for any additional construction or remodeling work that we have.
