We first hired Jeff Hayes Contracting to do a complete renovation of the first floor of our 1960’s bungalow (completed June 2016), and then about year later we hired him again to renovate the basement (completed July 2017).
We first met Jeff at the Ottawa home show in 2015 when we were in our planning stages of the renovation. Over the next year he took the time to discuss what our plans were and he provided advice and direction on how we might move forward. We then worked with an architect to develop the design and working drawings and then submitted these to various contractors for quotations; Jeff Hayes Contracting Ltd. won the contract. The main floor and basement of the house was totally gutted, including the replacement of all electrical and plumbing. The renovation included the addition of a new entrance (room) to the house, the relocation of the main floor bathroom, the amalgamation of 3 bedrooms into 1 bedroom, new kitchen, relocation & upgrade to a 3-piece bathroom in the basement, installation of new windows & patio doors. We had existing hardwood on the main floor which we wanted to keep, and the new hardwood was incorporated seamlessly with the existing flooring.
Jeff and his crew were great to work with and when there were issues with differences between the working drawings and the actual building, Jeff provided suggestions to rectify the situation. His quotation was accurate, without any hidden costs
A year later we went through the request for pricing process for the basement, and Jeff once again won the work. The basement renovation included a laundry room, 2 new bedrooms, and an entertainment room.
We are very pleased with the overall results of the work that Jeff has done.
