Rene and his team did our basement renovation and I am very impressed with their work. They took in account our needs and they delivered on their promise. It was a joy to have them around. I strongly recommend these guys.

I had my bathroom renovated by Rene and his team. He provided a detailed written quote and he started on the scheduled day. The tub and bulkhead was removed and replaced by a walk-in shower with new wall and floor tiles. Rene is very professional from start to finish, making sure that every step is properly done paying close attention to detail.
We are very pleased with the results and would not hesitate recommend him to anyone. I will be considering him for my next renovation project.

All in all our experience with Rene and his team was very good.

The (winter) project involved demolishing the existing 600-700 square foot basement in our 1970 sidesplit and building a 3-piece bathroom, office/bedroom, rec room, pantry, and laundry room. We had potlights installed in all rooms but the pantry, eight doors (including a pocket door and a door to crawlspace), built-in shelving in the pantry and a single flight of stairs. Rene's team also fixed a leak in the basement wall and some damaged concrete in the garage next to the basement.

The quote from Royal Basements was a bit lower than some others we got, but we chose them partly because Rene sketched out a floor plan on the spot during the initial consultation. That allowed us to go through a list of "what ifs?" Some smaller things like standard 5" baseboards and oak stairs helped.

What we appreciated the most about Rene was his flexibility and problem solving. He came up with a number of creative solutions that we think greatly improved the initial design.

We also really liked that they let us keep our washer and dryer in the basement throughout. We were able to resume doing our laundry pretty soon after they started.

Rene and his team were on time, worked hard and were professional throughout the experience. We primarily communicated through email and his response were timely.

the bathroom is built well (tile work is fantastic) and Rene promptly followed up afterwords to fix some minor issues. Which again, he came on time and explained what he was going to do.

We are happy that Rene and his team came in and did the job for us and would recommend them.

Finished Full Basement

We hired Rene and his team – Ale, Diego and David – to finish our 600 sq. ft. basement from scratch and we are very happy with the result.
He was timely and courteous with the quote and the estimate was reasonable, not too high not too low. He gave suggestions about the layout, materials and other things. You can tell he has done that for many years.
He and his team are fantastic guys. All very polite and open to suggestions and requests. We felt very comfortable to work with them. He accommodated a few changes along the project even though that caused some delay.
As someone mentioned, his quote includes all materials - flooring, painting, faucets, etc. - which are quality brands but basic. If you want brushed nickel faucets, for example, you must buy it yourself and he will gladly install them. Sub-flooring was also extra. So be prepared to spend a 5-10% more on niceties.
Speaking of niceties, we went a little overboard with the “niceties”, that includes in-wall and in-ceiling speakers and wiring (HDMI 2.0, Optical, USB3.0, CAT6, to name a few) in the Home Theater and in the office. I did the cabling myself, Rene & team placed the boxes, studs and drywall. Finally he installed a nice stone veneer on the wall (extra cost).
The project completion took 7 weeks but the wait was worth it. We are very happy with the new basement and can sure recommend Royal Basements.

Finishing an unfinished basement into an open concept recreation room, a bedroom and a full 3 piece bathroom

Royal Basements Inc helped us complete our my unfinished basement into an open concept recreation room, a bedroom and a full 3 piece bathroom (vanity, toilet and stand up shower), a pantry closet and shelving for storage in the unfinished part of the basement. The work involved, insulating our exterior walls, laminate for the floor, complete washroom and plumbing, painting the walls, ceiling with pot lights and completing the electrical.

Royal Basements have done a great job in finishing our basement. We were almost within the budget. Royal Basements was very accommodating to changes as long as they were within the contract parameters. Rene's (Royal Basements) suggestions regarding the layout etc, was also very helpful. Of all the contractors we met Rene was the only one who suggested replacing the basement stairs completely with oak hardwood instead of painting the old stairs or carpeting or laminate over the steps. This was within our budget price. There is a great attention to detail.

We definitely recommend Rene and his team for high quality of work, on time, and fair pricing. Although we were delayed due to the inspector not showing up for the electrical inspection by a week, Rene worked weekends to reduce the delay in timelines.

The only thing I would suggest is to add every little detail into the contract before signing up instead of assuming things as part of the package, for example installing the glass shower door for the stand up shower. We had assumed that this was included but it was not. Another one is shelving in the pantry cupboard. The pantry cupboard was made but no shelving because it was not in the contract. Rene will make sure to complete everything that is stated in the contract.

Overall I give Rene and Royal Basements a two thumbs up!

Kitchen

It has been a pleasure working with Rene on two kitchen projects. From opening a wall, tiling a marble backsplash, and installing a used kitchen, his skill and workmanship is truly appreciated. He patched a hole in a wood floor so seamlessly that you cannot tell there was a hole there at all!
