Loney Construction: Excellence and value

Todd Loney grew up in Niagara-on-the-Lake and is proud to be part of the community he now serves. Loney says he develops relationships with his clients that continue long after their projects are completed, because he delivers high-quality work, reliably on time and on budget. The trust that builds means both his residential and commercial clients return, knowing they’ll have an excellent experience.

Loney Construction offers a wide array of services, including construction, renovation and maintenance on both residential and commercial properties. Additions and renovations can transform any home, whether with custom cabinets, modern lighting, new fixtures or flooring. Loney emphasizes that the success of all projects starts in the planning phase, saying, “It’s in everyone’s best interest to define the scope and specifics of the work, so both the client and the contractor know exactly what’s being done.”

That results in accurate cost estimates and happy outcomes for everyone. Loney says he works closely with clients to help turn their dreams to reality, building designs and plans to make it all happen. He advocates design drawings for most projects as a valuable tool to create clarity around exactly what’s involved and what the final result will be. Loney adds, with a wry smile borne of past experience, that “a lack of clarity in the planning phase can lead to disappointment all around, so I always make sure upfront plans are laid out to avoid that.”

In addition to the more than 50 residential clients Loney has served since his company started in 2016, his commercial clients include Vintage Inns in NOTL. Loney Construction did the outdoor lighting at the Charles Inn, built the private dining room at Niagara’s Finest Thai restaurant on Queen Street and just last month repaired masonry in the loading dock at Pillar and Post.   

Loney himself is a highly skilled Red Seal certified carpenter, so he has hands-on expertise and he also has a network of as many as 100 different tradespeople of all disciplines to get things done. His attention to detail and experience in project management keep things flowing and on track.

Some of that expertise came from his experience as site superintendent of the Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel and Suites, a 58-storey hotel that took three years to complete. In that role Loney was first in and last out, responsible for co-ordinating all phases of construction from pre-construction excavation to exterior finishes.

Loney Construction also fosters the development of those entering the industry. Two young women are currently with the company, one as an apprentice general carpenter, one as a co-op student from the renovation program at Niagara College. Loney says that’s part of contributing to the community he lives in and opening doors for the next generation of skilled tradespeople – and the contractors of tomorrow.  

When he’s not on the job, making certain he’s delivering on his promise of quality work, on time and on budget, you might glimpse Loney out on the water, as a longtime avid sailor, or perhaps working with his fellow volunteers at the NOTL Fire Department. Loney also likes to support local causes, including the “Eat, Drink, Pink Event” coming up on Friday, July 5, in support of the Pink Pearl Foundation, which helps young women facing cancer.
