Basement Renovation

I am very pleased with the basement renovation work completed by Mudd Monkey. Barry (the boss) is polite, punctual and a pleasure to deal with. He assures all work is completed to his high standard and is considerate of the customer perspective throughout the process. I plan to use Mudd Monkey again in the near future.

Complete basement drywall repair, mud, and tape

We moved into a new house with a "finished" basement. The work done by the previous homeowners was amateurish with many visible seams, waves from excessive mudding, and overall poor workmanship. Barry came in over two weeks and the difference from before is night and day. He worked very hard to sand down and smooth out the entire basement, mud and taped new drywall we installed after a reconfiguration of the walls, and left us with a basement that was no longer an eyesore. After we primed and painted all the walls, the finished product looks amazing. Barry did fantastic work to revive our basement and give us a space to enjoy. He is true to his quotes as well.

Main level drywalling and multilevel flooring install

Barry did an awesome job. He accommodated our immediate timeline and rescued our renovation after problems with a different contractor. The quality of his work is fantastic and he was a pleasure to have around. So much so that we had his team install our flooring after the drywall was complete. Barry is trustworthy; which takes the pressure off during a stressful renovation. I have recommended him to friends and neighbors. Thanks again Barry - our ceilings look AMAZING (also after our last contractor said that flat ceilings couldn’t be done in our house).

Home renovation

I have used Mudd Monkey ( Barry Thomas ) for 2 renovation projects. One was a complete renovation. I would recommend Barry based on;
1. His honesty
2. The quality of the work
3. His ability to address unanticipated problems

Basement development

I checked several companies before signing in with Bary (the owner of The Mudd Monkey). The gut feeling was good and I wasn't mistaken. Everything went according to the plan, the work was great, accurate. Bary is very reliable and a man of word. It's very important to me. I would surely recommend him and won't hesitate to work with him in the future.

Basement Development

We hired Barry and his crew to do all the drywalling, mudding and taping for our basement development. They did a great job and finished the job quickly. Barry was always friendly and pleasant to deal with. Very happy with the finished product. Would highly recommend the Mudd Monkey!

Basement drywall supply/install, resilient channel install, mud/tape and knock down ceiling.

Had Barry and crew to supply/install the drywall, resilient channeling, mud & tape and install knock down ceiling throughout my 600sq/ft basement development. The work was all performed in a timely manner (2 weeks) and I'm very pleased with the final result. I will hire The Mudd Monkey team again in the future for my other reno projects. Barry, Derick and Nick were all super helpful, respectful and are true professionals. The majority of work was completed with a new mom, newborn baby and small dog present in the house. All the guys were very respectful, thoughtful and accommodating to them (conscious of noise levels, cleaned and removed all garbage/surplus, communicated expected times of work and even gave my dog a few dog treats). Furthermore to my amazement they even worked on a stat holiday to keep the progress. Once the mud and tape was completed Barry inspected the basement and performed two days of touch ups to ensure everything was completed properly and that the walls where ready for me to paint. In conclusion Barry and team are a great group, true professionals with great prices and I highly recommended them for any reno projects. Will hire again in the future.
