Basement Renovations

We have had intentions to complete our basement for years. We procrastinated, but it was greatly impacted on trust. Constant concern over hearing about the nightmare experiences of others, we were completely on the fence with our guard up to trust anyone to do work in our home. In addition, having high expectations in the quality of work and overall work ethic.

After searching for months, interviewing multiple contractors, evaluating their portfolio’s and budget, we decided to roll the dice with Victor and his team.

From the beginning of the project, right through to the end, Victor and his team completely alleviated all the stresses of a home renovation with amazing communication, workmanship and work ethic.

There were no surprises. There was no BS. They kept us informed. They were on time. They were on budget. They are skilled. And more importantly, they were professionals.

Also, they were easy going and pleasure to have around. Especially during the World Cup!

I can go on and on and on. The bottom line, this experience with Continental Brothers could not have had a better ending. We are completely in love with our new space. The pictures don’t do it justice!

Thanks to Victor, Hung, Tony and Benny! We look forward to our future projects with you.

Thanks Don for the kind words. You and Chrissie were very easy to work with and very hospitable during a hectic renovation when a lot was going on all at the same time. On a side note, thanks for helping us cheer on our World Cup soccer teams. Enjoy the new house. Safe to say, you'll be taking down the for sale sign?????

Finished Basement

Continental Bros turned our cave of a basement into a beautiful, bright and airy space. We now have an extra 900 sqft of living space! Which includes: 1) a pretty large open space, with extra shelving on a nook, 2) a bedroom that comfortably fits a queen size bed, two large night stands and a good size reach-in closet, 3) a three-piece bathroom with high quality finishes and a tempered glass door for the shower, 4) an enveloped "machine room", 5) a large storage closet, and 6) additional storage space under the stairs.

Victor and his team delivered on the agreed-upon timeline, stayed on budget, and the finished product exceeded our expectations. The team was professional and polite at all times. Excellent work ethics. They worked usually Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, with Victor staying behind on occasion to show us the progress, discuss challenges and/or check with us if a decision was needed. The painter was even willing to work on a weekend to accelerate completion, because they were aware of our required timeline.

Victor prepared our quote, offered helpful suggestions to improve the use of the space, and provided a reality check for some of the ideas we had for the basement. He continually communicated via e-mail or text messages if anything needed to be discussed. Since Continental Bros did such a great job with the basement we even engaged them for other repairs/upgrades around the house and they offered us very reasonable costs.

Would I recommend them? Absolutely! Would I use them again? Yes. We have some other home projects in our To Do list and will definitely contact Continental Bros in the future for them.

Thanks Victor and Continental Bros!

Basement renovation with bathroom

Continental Brothers Construction Inc. did an excellent job in renovating our basement. Apart from their superb workmanship Victor and his team were clean, courteous and trustworthy. Our basement was completed on time. The completed job more than lived up to our expectations. The basement (particularly the bathroom and stairway) look beautiful. We have been enthusiastically recommending Continental Brothers Construction Inc. to our friends and family and will continue doing so

Painting

Victor was a pleasure to deal with while Continental Brothers painted our home. We had pot lights installed by another company who left 15 holes in our drywall. Victor managed to send someone to patch all the holes at the last minute to meet our timeline to get all the painting done. His communication with us throughout the process was great, would definitely recommend!

Basement Renovation / finishing

The Continental Brothers came and turned our dungeon into a livable space that included a gorgeous bathroom with privacy glass shower. The main area was most open-concept with plumbing in place to add a small kitchenette at a later time.

The gents were always on time, worked till 5.30 daily and very efficient at getting the meat & potatoes of the job done! We were always surprised to go downstairs every night and see the changes. They pay attention to detail and are always open to hear any changes or requests as well as give their own advice or recommendations. My wife and I had a great working relationship with these contractors and their price is very fair considering the amount of work completed.

We did our research by getting many quotes and listening to many contractors but going with Continental Bros was the best economical choice for our wish of having the basement completed. Now we have an extra floor of space that is comfortable and quiet and it adds value to the overall house and being useful in our daily lives.

Thank you Continental Bros, see you again for future renovations!

Thank you Mary and Dom for your kind words and warm hospitality. It's always nice at the end of a major renovation to see that people are still smiling. It makes what we do that much more enjoyable. It was a real treat...and the pizza wasn't bad either. The basement looks fabulous and the kitchen, GRAND. Please have us over at your next Woodbridge "Great Italian Cook-Off." Enjoy your new basement.

950 sq ft Finished Basement

The most important thing that you’ll want to know:
1. YES, we would recommend Victor M. & Continental Brothers to family & friends and
2. YES, we would use them again to finish basements in any of our future homes.

Overall, we are very happy.

We went from an unfinished basement in a 4-year old detached home to a 950 sq ft stunning finished basement. It has a 3-piece bathroom (shower, toilet, vanity), den with lovely frosted glass French Doors and the rest is an open concept floorplan, which is what we wanted.

Timing:
The job took about 8-calendar weeks from the start time to end time. However, 1-week was lost while we did spray foam insulation (done via a separate Company that I already wrote a review on) and 1-week while we were out of town. Thus, about 6-working weeks for Victor & team.
The 6-weeks was the time estimate that Victor provided when he did our quote so the job did not have any time delays and potentially, more importantly, we did not have any cost overruns. We paid what was quoted. That seems to be quite rare as we see reviews from others where customers need to pay contractors extra compared to the quoted price.

Personnel & Leadership:
Victor is the owner of the Company and is the person that does the quote, does the work, Project manages the team & sub-trades, and more importantly, is your “go to” person for questions and comments.

Communication:
Victor was always open for communication. As Type-A personalities, we liked how he would ask us for input on a daily basis for certain decisions. We appreciated that even though the work day was done and the rest of the workers had left for home that Victor would stay behind and wait for us to get home after work to walk us through what had been done, check-in with us to see if we had questions and ask us for any further input.

Flexibility:
Victor was flexible with us. Although his quote includes insulation and laminate flooring, we wanted to do spray foam insulation and vinyl plank flooring instead. Victor was able to work with the different materials and was able to work with the timeline needs for the separate spray foam company. The quote includes the bathroom exhaust vent and Victor installed a different vent for us that I had selected instead of his standard exhaust vent.

Pricing & all-inclusive Quote:
One of the reasons why we picked Victor was that his quote was all-inclusive. So we did not have to worry about [or pay for] extra materials, parts, labour, etc. For example, it included a high-efficiency American Standard Toilet and Moen bathroom hardware. We recognized those brands so we were comfortable with them. We did not want inferior products. We were able to select the styles that we wanted. Further examples of the all-inclusive quote are that it includes LED potlights, all the porcelain tiling including grout [some other basement quotes we received charged extra for grout! Or extra costs to upgrade from ceramic to porcelain], doors including all door hardware [we had one basement quote that required us to purchase our own door jambs, which we didn’t even know what that was until we Googled it. That was very surprising for us].
Payment terms are very favourable. Most contractors’ quotes needed an upfront payment as high as 50% of the quoted price. Victor’s payment terms are weekly once the job starts. For example, if the job is $100 after HST tax for 10 weeks, then you pay $10 a week on Friday each week.

Extras:
In addition, without any delays to the quoted timeline, Victor & team were willing to do extra minor stuff and repairs/maintenance around the house. We offered to pay extra for the extra work, but since they were minor, they were kind enough to do it for free. Please understand that if you ask for extra work to be done that is more significant, then you should expect to pay as that’s only fair. At least it will be at a reasonable extra rate/charge.

Minor Constructive Feedback:
If anything, the only minor constructive feedback that we have, especially as non-smokers, was that we did not appreciate members of Victor’s team smoking outside on our property and occasionally leaving cigarette butts on the ground or in our compost bin [cigarette butts are NOT compostable in our area]. It should be noted that Victor does NOT smoke. And especially impressive was that once we raised the issue to Victor, he personally went out and picked up the cigarette butts left by his team. That is such a gross & dirty task, that I really appreciated that he did that to ensure that he addressed our concerns.

Feeback from Friends & Family:
Everyone that has seen the new basement so far has really been impressed by both the overall look and quality construction & materials.

I've attached some before and after photos. Apologies that Homestars does not let me rotate photos.

Basement Renovation

We had spent a lot of time looking for a contractor to complete our basement. When we first met Victor of Continental Brothers, he seemed to be honest and his quote came in at a reasonable price and his payment terms was fair. His team started the job on time as agreed and the estimate in regard to how long the job would take was accurate. Overall, we were very impressed with his team. Victor, Hugh, Tony and Benny did an awesome job. When they started framing the layout, they saw a better vision for the basement and recommended a different layout that maximized the use of the space. We made a lot of changes along the way and with each change they gracefully adapted and modified what they were doing to accommodate our requests. They also kept making suggestions to improve upon what we envisioned. They treated our renovation as though they were doing their own basement. They really cared about our satisfaction, provided advice on colours and styling to ensure that we will enjoy the space once completed. Hugh was amazing – his response was always “no problem, we’ll make it happen”. Benny’s work ethic was outstanding. Very rarely do you come across someone dedicated to doing outstanding quality work as he is. The service provided was excellent. We could tell that our happiness was Victor’s number one priority. He also provided a lot of extras – such as installing lights upstairs, repairing our garage door and making other needed repairs around our home. We are so pleased with how our basement turned out and are happy that we chose Continental Brother’s Construction. If you are looking for contractors who are honest, do good quality work and are a pleasure to work with – call these guys.
