Whos the Coward – To all McM Clients Past and Present,
It is with great regret that I have to inform you that my doors are officially closed. The 31st of October would have been our 20th anniversary but sadly, I am unable to continue. I have anguished greatly for many years to overcome the hardships of the last five years, and alas, I was unsuccessful.
I have worked 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, I have not brought home a check to my family for months, and nothing substantial prior to that. In the end it simply was not enough.
For those of you who are wondering what happened, I will explain it to the best of my ability.
Maurice, my business partner, passed away April 2005 after fighting a losing battle to cancer less than 4 months after we embarked on a massive expansion and purchase of our new building.
In 2006 and 2007 we attempted to reassign my role as field supervisor and production manager to several other employees. Unfortunately, that turned out be an experiment that failed miserably.
In 2008 we were continually robbed by 2 employees, who were swiftly terminated when caught. They in turn began to picket the business, claiming that McM owed them money. That matter to this day has still not been resolved and we have defended ourselves at great expense.
2009 was the infamous CT Carpentry fiasco. MCM completed a 500 square foot roof that we put $40,000 of our own money into and were not paid for. The job resulted in a total loss of over $100,000.00 dollars. We could not afford to even pursue the money in court because we simply could not afford the lawyers. The choices were buy materials and pay the help or pay the lawyers. We of course chose to do the right thing and complete the project for the sake of the customer.
In 2008 and 2010, with the economic decline, we could not locate banks to finance projects for customers, leading to rejections on credit apps and an all around crash of large scale projects. There was millions of dollars in cancellations I could not overcome.
I have put everything I have ever had into saving McM and it was still not enough! To add insult to injury, Thursday, 8/5/10, I was robbed yet again by two other employees of every nail gun, compressor and an assortment of other hand tools. At this point, I cannot even cut a 2x4.
I do not even have the ability to finish the projects I have already started.
I am in financial ruin and will be personally on the hook for a long time.
I am deeply sorry for the pain that our demise has caused your families and am tirelessly working to help get coverage for your projects.
I am including the information to recover the funds that you had entrusted to McM Restoration Corp.
With Great Regret,
Patrick M. McAneeny

The only coward is the one who would blindly bash un named from behind a dirty computer, a good family who served this country as a army ranger and this beloved comunity for just short of 2 decades, who has done 100's of hours of community service, and thousands of projects. You sir are the coward!!!
Pat and Kimmy MCM are cowards – If you are at this site, you have also been hurt by Pat and Kimmy McAnneny, they have closed and stolen hundreds of thousands, call him and ask him why he stole, he is at Advanced like so many have reported, Call Dave the president and ask him why he would hire someone like that? Also go to small Claims and try to get your money, there are many but you never know. Look at ct.gov both in civil and small claims on him to keep track. Good Luck they will both self implode shortly.....
**WARNING** – It wasn't an option here, but this company deserves no stars. It's apparently closed now.
****Warning****** – Stay away from this one. They want a heavy downpayment and once you give it to them they don't come back when they say. Owner has many excuses and sub contractors and workers complain about getting paid. I noticed all the good compnts were around the same dates which seams to be odd and makes me wonder if they are by customers or the company trying to look good. Read all the real reviews and avoid this contractor.
Never on time and don't pay the subcontractors – Before writing this I want to point out that the good reviews seem to have all the same date. Seams fishy to me.
As a subcontractor for MCM I talked to many customers and the complaints are endless, didn't start the job on time, asked for advacements in pay before they were due, sub contractors would not show up because they were not getting paid, the company is in financial trouble and has several legal actions in progress currently. Improper job site management. Every job I was on the customers were complaining that they had paid and the work was not getting done .
Superior treatment and workmanship – Our first experience with MCM was a small job of replacing some roof windows that had been installed years ago. The work done was exceptional. It was far superior to the original work done 24 years ago. All of our experiences with MCM were handled efficiently, courteously and the workmanship was of very high quality. We called them back to complete another job a few years later. This was also of high quality. When we were ready to add an addition onto our home, they were the obvious choice to contact. Pat McAneeny and Beau Lucas met and worked with us on many occations to finalize a plan of approach and to meet the needs of our addition. They also involved their work foreman and builder, Rick LaCombe in the meetings so that everyone was aware of the scope of the project. To date we have very pleased with the attention to detail, the pricing of materials and work, and the treatment we have received from MCM Restorations. They are indeed a great choice for any work to be done around your home. The Lambs, Ashaway, RI
the absolute best – These guys tranformed my tired looking beach shack into a classic New England beach cottage. Patrick, the owner, did the estimate himself. The cost was 15% less than other bids I received. There were no addtional costs other than changes I requested. Beau and the project managers began the work at the schedulled time and completed it quickly. I did not occupy the home during the work. I relied on their expertise, their confidence, and their professionalism. I was not disappointed.
PROFESSIONAL SERVICE WITH ATTENTION TO DETAILS AND GREAT FOLLOWUP – I shopped around for roofing bids this winter and MCM Restoration was an easy pick!
My quote was delivered to me within a few days of estimator looking at my house and they beat all of my other bids. I loved how they offered me several options and were concerned with my budget.
During the work, I had questions and was called back within a half hour of leaving a message.
My husband was a contractor and I know what makes a GREAT CONTRACTOR:. 1. Professionalism 2. Quality 3. Follow-up.
I plan to use MCM again this spring for a remodeling job and I am actually looking forward to the project.
Excellent employees provide outstanding service – MCM is nearing the completion of a large renovation on my parent's home. I looked far and wide to find the best company and they have exceeded my expectations. Everyone, and I mean everyone, that I have met and dealt with @ MCM has been more than courteous and each of them has gone above and beyond to make this project really a pleasure for me. The house is beautiful! Even the building inspector and zoning officer have commented on the excellent design and workmanship. I would not hesitate to contract with them again. Special thanks to Jim, Jeff and Beau. Job well done.
Best Remodeler in New London County!!! – I love my new addition from MCM Restoration. The construction team was friendly and very helpful. I will admit that while the work was being completed it was like shoveling before it stopped snowing, which is typical in any construction project, but the end result is just totally awesome. I am thankful that my salesman was not as dishonest as the ones picketing on MCM's front lawn. Can you imagine admitting on national television that you under bid jobs on MCM's part to win the job for yourself? Shame on them!!! I highly recommend MCM for any project in your home.
