After getting several quotes, we decided to go with WUPA Contracting to renovate our basement and we're so glad that we did. The General Contractor, Doug, was extremely helpful and professional at every step of the reno. He suggested that we change our original layout that we planned to give us options i.e. give us the option to keep a den for ourselves and have a good size mortgage helper. He then brought us several samples of materials at each stage so that all I had to do was pick the colour I wanted - soooo much easier than having to go out and shop for everything myself. Doug also made it easier to choose the materials by giving us the "CONS" of each in addition to the pros e.g. I was going to go with dark laminate floors until he pointed out that I would have to clean more often, as dark floors show dust and pet hair - and that I would need high-priced underlay if I wanted to sound-proof the basement. I ended up going with cork floors because they act as a sound barrier.
