Basement reno went nowehere

We were new to basement renovations and they seemed credible when meeting, suggesting our small basement underpinning or benching and renovation could be done for around 100k. After spending 6k + for “design” we were then told the basement would cost somewhere between 150-200k. They insisted on multiple in person meetings which nothing was accomplished and wouldn’t do the project unless we were willing to spend $200k. We have since gone elsewhere (and every other company we talked to who does similar houses are shocked to hear the 200k amount). And the “design” they did provided no value and we would like our money back for that.

Company Response

Hello, Christine. Further to your review, I would like to remind you of a few key points. Our Design direction was to provide designs for full basement renovation, inclusive of underpinning, waterproofing, parging, completion of HVAC mechanical relocation, main floor remodel and 2nd floor addition, etc. As part of our 2 tiered Design Process, Phase I was to provide preliminary design of full wish list, as well as provide our Ballpark Estimate for the full project. This very necessary process allows our clients to review and determine the immediate ‘must haves’ with the option(s) of phasing their project, and we ensured any work necessary in the basement, structurally supported the future main floor and 2nd floor plans. Probuilt provided 4 further ballparks with the many scenarios you requested, and it is our policy to discuss budgets in person and project phased options. We do not move into Phase 2, nor bill for this Phase (Permit Submission Drawings, and Final Estimate) unless Preliminary Phase 1 is approved. We hope you are enjoying your 2nd floor laundry that we accommodated for you, and pleased you were able to find a renovator that suited your basement renovation budget and wish you all the best.

Kitchen Renovation

Superb workmanship. They delivered on time, within budget and handled every aspect of the kitchen reno. Reno involved excavation, demolition of an exterior wall, custom cabinetry, flooring, new drywall, lighting, countertops, and opening up interior. Michael and his staff are very easy to deal with and communication is excellent with all parties. Michael only uses high-end suppliers, who are worth every penny. On his final inspection, the building inspector told me that he rarely tells homeowners anything about their general contractors for better or for worse. But he made an exception with me by telling me that Probuilt not only met the building code but exceeded it - a first in his experience. Probuilt is not inexpensive but the workmanship, service and materials are simply not available at a lower price and probably not even available at a higher price. We know; we checked. Michael's cabinet maker uses marine grade plywood. We checked out the best cabinet makers in the GTA and didn't find any that used that quality of material. My only advice would be to be sure you don't add to your original plan because any additions will cost you dearly. If you want all the bells and whistles, do it from the get-go.There was a foreman on site at all times and the crew rarely missed a day in the five month project.In fact, the only time they were away was during the home show because Probuilt was responsible for the dream home. (They had all their crews assembling and disassembling the home.) We're currently hiring Probuilt to renovate our main bathroom.

Kitchen and main floor reno

Extremely high quality workmanship and customer communication. Michael does not cut corners and neither do his crew members. He's not cheap, but quality never is. Michael built according to our budget and completed his work on time. He gets his cabinets from Perola, which produces cabinets that cannot be matched by any of the other high end companies we researched. With Michael, the job cannot be done wrong. It's done right from the get go.
