Basement Renovation - Great Job!!!

We've been wanting to renovate our unfinished basement for a long time, and we were looking for a contractor who would provide quality work for a competitive price. We were anxious about making the right choice because we have heard "horror stories" from others who had bad home reno experiences with their contractors - and we didn't want that to happen to us. We actually checked out different companies and Royal Basements, Inc. was the best by far - not only were we impressed by the positive reviews we read, but we appreciated how quick Rene was to respond to our inquiries. He provided a clear and concise, detailed quote that was affordable, and met our needs. When we reviewed the quote and asked for clarity and slight changes, Rene promptly revised the document to make sure it reflected exactly what we wanted. Throughout the experience, Rene and his team were always professional, punctual, and respectful. They finished the project on time and delivered top quality results - exactly what we had hoped for.

The team worked with minimal disruption, and they were very efficient yet precise in their work. They were also very clean and organized and kept the dust and dirt to a minimum - something we as homeowners, truly appreciated (especially with a 4-year old in the house). From the start, Rene made things easy for us by providing all the documents, inspections, etc. that were required. He also provided useful suggestions on design choices and how to save money - and he was very flexible when we asked him for tweaks in the original design plan. We realized during the process, how much of a perfectionist Rene is - he did not miss any detail and he demonstrated such a passion for his work when he re-stained our new stairs in a colour that better matched our wood flooring. We really appreciate Rene's honesty, his kind and humble nature, and most of all...his incredible work ethic. We saw the same diligent work approach in Juan, Alex, and Justin, as well. He and his team felt like family by the end of the process - trustworthy, hardworking guys who love what they do!

We have been raving about Royal Basement Inc. to everyone we know because they have really exceeded our expectations and transformed our basement into a beautiful living space that our family can enjoy for years to come. Thanks again, Rene and team - we will definitely be looking to you again for any home improvement work in future!

Cheers,

The Yarra's (Joe, Riza, and Elias.)

Rene came in and was very professional, on time, and structured in his work. We had a completely unfinished basement and Rene came in with his small team to work on our basement. It is completely finished with a rough-in kitchen. We received many quotes, rene's was more than competitive and the Job was done with as much detailed quality as we would have hoped.

Thanks Rene!

Thank you! Rene and Juan Carlos, you have brought light and made our basement feel very welcoming. Our basement needed to be demolished and all electrical including the main box replaced. Rene was prompt on arrival on the first visit. He spoke softly and gave us advice on what was possible and timeline. He gave us a written contract and we followed with many questions, but he always explained with advice that would save money and still give us good results. There were many revisions to the contract, because he highlighted points that woke us up to other possibilities that could further enhance the basement.

Rene, Juan and their team arrived promptly on the start date, and they stayed true to their work schedule until the basement was completed. They were very clean. All the demolished walls were taken away on the same day, so there was no big garbage bin in our driveway. We were very PLEASED...Thank you for keeping the PROCESS CLEAN!

We chose to install a very dark floor, and Rene stained the new stairs to match the floor colour perfectly.

Rene needed to travel for Christmas, so he, Juan and Alex came and layed the flooring on a Saturday. This meant we could use the space if needed. They resumed work as promised on January 4th. Juan worked tirelessly to paint the space beautifully... this included the laundry room floor. We were surprised to see that Juan even painted the floor behind the heating unit. Great Job!!!

Rene and Juan Carlos exceeded our expectations. They also arranged for all inspections and gave us the proper documents to show approval of the work. We will certainly have these gentlemen do more renovations in our home again. BRAVO!

Cheers!!

Basement finishing

Thank you Rene and Juan for the great work.
The work was done in July. I called Rene when I saw the work that they have done for a friend - his review with pictures is here as well. He came and saw what needed to be done and gave me a reasonable estimate along with a tentative date which was acceptable. They were true to their words from start to finish and did a lot of things (small and big) with no extra charge for instance: the understanding was that I would provide the materials, still Rene came with his truck and both Rene and Juan helped me carry the drywall, the wood and the engineered wood for the floor in the basement. Anyone who has done this knows that it is hard work but they were smiling all the time and never mentioned a word about this - THANK YOU GUYS!
The work was done in the time that was promised, they were always asking for feedback and Rene proposed some different ways of doing the ceiling that were much better than what I was thinking. He was always friendly and polite and when I was insisting on something to be done as I wanted to, he would always oblige, for instance, the design of the floor layers was unusual because I needed a bit of spring in the floor due to the fact that I want to have the basement as a studio for martial arts and fitness. Again, no extra charge, and the work was done as per my instructions and I am very happy with the way the floor feels to the barefoot touch.
Another note, Rene never insisted on any payment schedule, in fact, I was the one who proposed a payment plan with half the money paid halfway through and the other half after completion and he had no objection.
All the work was done well, in time, they were careful with the materials with no waste and the mess and dust were always kept at a minimum.
I would hire Rene and Juan again in a heartbeat for any renovation big or small (oh, by the way, they also stripped the caulking and foam insulated a window of my house properly to make sure there will be no leak in the basement from that window).
Thank you very much Rene and Juan!

Quartz Counters and Hardwood Floor Installation

Once again we used Royal Basements for our home renovation projects and were extremely happy with their work. We knew after they had done our basement reno that we would use them again for our future projects. Rene and Juan Carlos are easy to deal with and very polite and professional.
We had our kitchen counters and bathroom counters replaced with Quartz and they are amazing! Price was great and the installation was seamless.
Rene and his team also replaced our old hardwood floors with new hardwood. From ripping out the old flooring to laying down the new floor in our entire 4 bedroom bungalow and putting in new baseboards the entire job took a week and we are extremely happy with the work. We will be hiring them again again for our next project for sure!!

Finish Basement

Great experience throughout the whole project. Rene showed up punctually for the estimate and gave me a quote, a start date and a duration. They started on time, finished on time: 3.5 weeks for 600 sq ft, including a large recreation room and a bathroom. They took off the old insulation, sealed 6 cracks of which only 1 was visible during the initial visit, added new insulation and came with great suggestions which improved the usability of the rooms. I loved the positive attitude when I asked for new things and overall I am very happy with the end result.

basement reno

We purchased a home in the summer and decided we would finish the basement. We wanted a gym, bedroom, bathroom, and kids playroom. I interviewed a few contractors and found that René was the most receptive and helpful of them, and even helped to design the layout of the basement.

We went through the contract and René was pretty open to the changes I made... We actually went through a few iterations, and finally came to an agreement. Actually René was really great about it and even did a few things over and above what we agreed on.

Work started and the guys showed up pretty much every day on time and ready to go. The guys are great and trustworthy and we felt safe with them in our home... We really appreciated all the extra help they did for us, since we fired our bathroom contactor and rene and Juan picked up the work and finished tiling our upstairs bathrooms!

All in all I was very pleased with their work and will hire them again for another project.

The basement turned out great and we love our new gym.

Thank you to Rene, Juan, and the rest of the crew!

Royal Basements were the contractor of choice to renovate our basement which had been destroyed by flooding in July 2013, Rene and his team transformed the basement into very usable space with a fantastic bar. What impressed us so much with Royal Basements and Rene was that commitments were made and always honoured on time and that the work was completed properly and without any hassles. Rene was always punctual, all of his workers were polite and helpful, and if any little extras were required they were completed willingly and quickly. The job was completed in time. Since that huge renovation we have had the confidence to call Rene to complete another smaller bathroom project which again was completed on time and looks great. Having had some previous bad experiences with contractors I would not hesitate to recommend Royal Basements. They do great work!!!
We are happy with the results. Royal Basement team did great job and we called again for minor repairs also and all is perfect.
