New Basement

I hired Don and Basement Builders in the spring of this year after working out of my home for the previous 6 months and learned I would continue long term. My first plan was to develop it solely to cover those needs. After speaking with Don and Mathew (Mathew being an owner as I found out) we were able to incorporate my working from home needs while maintain future flexibility and equity. I do also have to mention that Ben and Brian were great as well (Ben again as I found out was the other owner). I was blown away and impressed that it turned out so well and that both owners are also personally involved, where do you find that now a days. PS my home office is WAY nicer than any office I would have to travel to. Thanks!

Basement Development

I had a basement developed professionally 10 years ago so I was excited to see what has changed since then. I interviewed several companies and what set Basement Builders apart from the others right away was the speed of service. I received a call back right away (within a day) and my appointment in a week. Don came over and was able to take my list and right then and there turn it into a floorplan incorporating everything my wife and I wanted. Seriously I had drawings right then to look at! I was impressed and then blown further away when I had a quote within the hour...! This was extremely quick but still did my painful due diligence and waited for the other quotes. I won't speak negatively towards the other companies but some had quotes within a day or two and some within a week or two and one never arrived. The process was interactive and comfortable, the first day on the job we were shown the layout chalked onto the floor allowing for a further visual which were were then able to make a few minor adjustments. In a separate meeting the electrical was decided. I loved that it wasn't just off a pre-planned drawing like my other basement was because I could put plugs according to my furniture meaning no extension cords! The End result was better than expected and I'm sure you will agree when you see the pictures on the website... My wife and I cannot thank you enough!

Basement Development

We chose Basement Builders based on reviews by HomeStars. Basement Builders took the time to address all of our concerns during and after the job was completed. We love our basement more than we love the the rest of our house!

Basement Development

We had Basement Builders develop our basement earlier in 2021. Overall, we were satisfied with most of the work done. The project was completed on time and budget. After the job was completed, we had some concerns with the temperature in our basement. We brought them up with Basement Builders but they were not interested in addressing them seriously

We called one of their main competitors and even though we had worked with someone else, they made some good suggestions and agreed to work with us. Even though it cost us more and took longer than planned, we are now very happy with our basement.

Thank you for taking the time to connect with us yesterday. It’s important for us to get your perspective on where the communication breakdown happened and learn from it.
It's our goal to get every client exactly what they want and it appears this addition slipped through the crack. We have already put a system in place to overcome this.

From Beginning to the End First Class

From the initial meeting to the completion of our basement renovation the service we received from Basement Builders was first class Everyone we dealt with was very friendly, listened to our needs, professional at all times so we have no hesitation saying we would highly recommend them.
Our basement has been completed to a very high standard including our specific requests, all tradesmen were courteous and worked quietly and cleanly so we hardly knew they were there.
All our queries were answered and dealt with without delay. Its been a great experience and we love the end result. Thank you.

Basement Development

I really enjoyed working with Basement Builders. I particularly liked their deep knowledge and expertise when it comes to basement development/renovations specifically. This helped us get a great looking basement, with great quality, and within our budget.
All the trades were extremely professional and exhibited great workmanship! Not to mention the project was complete ahead of schedule!

Basement design and development

We are in love with our newly developed basement! Every step with Basement Builders went smoothly, efficiently and expertly. First step was meeting with Don who listened to what we wanted developed in the basement and drew up a design that maximized the space, while being mindful of the budget. Don remained a regular point of contact through out the process and was always prompt at answering any questions we had. All the trades and workers coming and going were respectful and professional. We loved the variety of selections offered for flooring, cabinetry, tiles and counter tops. The project wrapped up faster then what was initially projected, with no real timing lags as someone was working almost every day! We would not hesitate to recommend Basement Builders to anyone looking to develop their basement.

Since the first time they came out, they lived up to all there promises. From the first meeting with Don till the last meeting with Brian, the project went without a hiccup. I would highly recommend them and give them 11 stars if I could. Well run business with respectful staff and easy process. Great job guys.
