We contacted Krys Construction for a quote on our basement renovation. After meeting a few contractors, we decided Krys was the best fit. His quote was higher than other quotes that I had received but it was the most complete. Other contractors seemed to have all kinds of hidden charges, and we thought Krys did a great job of letting us know where we could see additional charges (i.e. more tiles, better floors etc...). Schedule was also really important and we got that upfront, which I really appreciated.
We let Krys know that since I'm on mat leave, we didn't have the budget to finish the basement and he adjusted his quote to get enough finished so that it was usable, while fully finishing the basement bathroom.
Krys' trades are incredible, they are friendly, efficient, professional and clean. Friends who looked at our basement were thoroughly impressed with the work. Having done a previous large renovation that was super stressful, I was a little skeptical but Krys and team exceeded my expectations - I was so happy with the work daily.
Two really great inclusions were duct cleaning and project cleaning - I think this is such a great way to put a bow on everything before turning over to the homeowner.
A few cons: Even though we had a schedule, we had a few days with unscheduled work. Our project schedule was aggressive and finished a few days late. Krys was quick to address the unscheduled work which was great and he was very upfront about the work that needed to be rescheduled.
We still had a few construction things on the floor when the cleaning person came so unfortunately, we're going to have to clean floors again. Also there was mud on our stairs that didn't get removed.
With our partially finished basement, we tried to address the items that were in scope vs not up front (i.e. no trim, no stairs, no paint) but there are some grey areas. The only item that took me by surprise was a door to our storage room that I thought was included since it was on our plan but isn't. We're paying a little more to get that door.
Most people reading this, I'm sure will be finishing their project so these last few items won't be an issue.
Overall, I've already recommended Krys Construction to a few friends and they will be the first contractors I contact for future work. It was easy to get in touch with Krys and very easy to work with. I'm so happy we found Krys Construction!
