Aaron McCardle, Owner of A.C. McCardle Home Builders in Cornwall, specializes in turn-key design and construction of new homes and cottages, renovations, and project management services across PEI.
Aaron’s father started the business 39 years ago. “I worked alongside my father and took over the business in 2010.”
At present, Aaron has labourers working for him, and subcontracts services such as roofing, plumbing, and electrical work.
Aaron is looking to hire more staff. “We are very busy and need to hire more skilled Carpenters, preferably Red Seal,” says Aaron. “I have been relying on subcontracted Carpenters, but I would rather have my own employees, so that they are ready to work when I need them.
“I use many Carpenters who do not have their Red Seal, as long as they have experience, know how to build a house, and are professional and punctual.
“Communication is key with our customers and our staff. At a time when it is so busy, we still want to focus on the important aspects of each day. Having the right compliment of staff and everyone being on the same page is very important to us.”
Pending experience, wages range from $25 to $40/hr.
