In Spring 2019, we had Curtis and his staff finish our basement, providing us with additional space for our family to relax and entertain from. From the beginning, it was clear we had a good team that would work with us and what we wanted, keeping us within our budget, and we were confident we would end up with a fantastic product.
All members of the team on site were professional, courteous and patient with our family (2 curious young boys and a dog). The site was always secured at end of day, and the rest of our house didn't feel like it was a disaster during the renovation.
Curtis kept the project moving and when we had minor delays due to materials, available trades, or inspections, we were well informed, and I could see efforts were being made to keep the project progressing.
The feedback on pricing and option selection allowed us to either splurge or be more budget conscious in the areas that made the most sense. Curtis offered good recommendations for where to go for our selections and knowledge on which options were going to impact cost or be a schedule factor.
As work progressed, we felt confident of the quality of the work and the attention we were receiving, and we benefited from clear and frequent communication.
Notably, an issue was found as drywall was pulled back, and a leak was found. We were given time to bring in/resolve work that was not within Braeside's wheelhouse, without being rushed into a decision to make schedule. Work continued in other areas, and as the external work was completed, the team on site managed additional interactions with another team without issue.
The pay schedule was more than fair; we had confidence we were paying for the materials and labor as the work progressed, by transferring funds in multiple instalments, per the discussions at the outset of the project. There was never a fear that our funds weren't going to be applied to our project or that our project was going to run over budget.
The end result is exactly what we were hoping for, and a very pleasant experience - we'd highly recommend Curtis and the team at Braeside Construction for similar renovations.
