After 18 years of using the basement as an unfinished storage unit, we decided to make it a functional living space. With the number of contractors out there and the associated horror stories, we were very cautious in the selection process. We obtained many estimates and spoke to a lot of organizations. This in itself took us many months and while there was no guarantee that we were making the right choice, we opted to move forward with Finishbasement.ca.
I can emphatically say that we made the right choice! From a timing
perspective, they were bang on in their estimate of 3 weeks. Even the final costs, which were painfully detailed out and explained, were almost identical to the originally quote. From day one, they communicated on a daily basis providing a heads up on work to be expected and completed
and the individuals in charge. In respect to the staff, all I can say is that they were terrific....extremely kind and very professional always
providing suggestions and seeking feedback. They take great pride in their work and what I would consider perfectionists. As an example, one of the walls was slightly dented in (almost unnoticeable) as they moved the large treadmill to another spot. Without even mentioning it to them, they had it completely refinished the next day.
Thank you to Igor, Andrij, Natalie, Uri, Vitaly, Vlad and finally to Alex.....who stayed till very late hours (on a weekend) to complete the taping and mudding.
My kids absolutely love the final product and my wife is ecstatic.....now we need to upgrade the rest of the house to match the basement!
