Complete Basement Reno

After a long search process for a contractor, we finally came across Yan from Capable Group. They stood out to us because of their great reputation, fair price, and the all-inclusive approach. At that point I couldn't stand pushy sales techniques and I found Yan to be the opposite. He answered all the questions and gave us an itemized quote. He guaranteed their price will not change (and it didn't !). He also guarantess their work for 2 years. They have a comprehensive contract that details the process, and ensured we understand exactly what to expect. I recommend reading it in detail!

Step 1 - My wife and I are not expereinced in major renos so the designer was a huge differentator for us. Ludmila was responsive and patient with our questions and she helped us make all the key decisions up-front and make detailed 3D CAD drawings so we can see what our basement would look like even before the work started. We made sure our basement is totally clear before the next step. For us that meant no more access to laundry (an issue with 2 little kids) so we appreciated the speed with which they moved through the next step.

Step 2 - Once the work started they worked quickly. You can expect them at your home 12 h a day, 6 days a week during the first part. Experts from each trade involved me in key decisions that could affect the design. As with any major project it is best to remain involved, and they really respected my questions and suggestons. The pace of work slows down when they put in walls and start focusing on details. At that point we got our laundry back. Then they took their time where it mattered most and their handyman come in at the end to touchup everything.

Step 3 - They clean the basement thoroughly and at that point you can move back in. They were responsive long after that when we asked them to come back for more touchups that we noticed over days and weeks.

Overall we were extremely happy with the results and the interactions we had. I would recommend Capable Group for your next project.

Basement finishing, hardwood and staircase, washroom reno

My wife and I initially hired Capable Group to just finish our basement. I went through the quoting process with 4-5 other companies and felt most comfortable with Capable. They were competitively priced and very detailed oriented in the quoting and design process. My wife and I also decided to get them to replace the hardwood and staircase on the main floor and upstairs in our home, as well as to renovate the master washroom. The project was completed in a timely manner and the quality of work was outstanding. If I decide to do future renovations Capable will be the company that I hire again after the positive experience that I had.

Basement and En-suite Renovation

We were looking to finish our basement. After months of searching for the right contractor, the frustration was building. We couldn't find a contractor who was reasonably priced and who was really a one stop shop. Then we stumbled upon the Capable Group. And from the very fist phone call, I knew we had found the right contractor for our project.

Yan, the salesman/owner was very professional and you could immediately tell he was experienced and knowledgeable. He answered all of my initial questions and so we set up an appointment. He made sure to mention on the phone that he would have a firm price for our project during our first visit! No other contractor was able to supply a cost immediately so naturally I was skeptical. But true to his word, when he left our appointment, we had a firm contract price for all of the work required. I say a firm price because the price quoted during our initial visit was the price we paid in the end for the work detailed in the estimate. There were no hidden costs. The price was reasonable, so reasonable that we decided to renovate our en-suite as well.

The Capable Group has a interior designer (Ludmila) and a project manager (Michael) which you have at your disposal.

Ludmila helped us navigate through the showroom to make our selections (paint colours, vanity, tiles, etc.). She has a great eye and is a major reason why our basement looks incredible. She also supplies 3D drawings of your basement so you get a great feel of what your end product will look like.

Michael the project manager is amazing. From the very first visit, he made us feel calm and at ease and his recommendations were on point. We put our trust in him and he did not disappoint. Please take his advice when he makes a recommendation. His experience and knowledge is a major asset to your project. Again, he is another major reason why our basement turned out so beautiful.

The trade workers are always on time, very professional, helpful and respectful of your property. And the work they performed is of high standards. I can't say enough about how hard these guys work and great of a job they do. And they are quick but without losing the standards in the process.

The total process, from start to finish, was incredible. I can't say enough how great The Capable Group is and how they made our vision come to life.

Complete basement Reno to stunning unit

We just completed a major renovation with Capable Group and are THRILLED with it. They worked through our vision with us, and made it a reality.
Pricing was fair, and it was a one stop shop. They stand behind their work, which I appreciate tremendously. Between Yan, Ludmila (the designer) and Michael our project manager, we have created a spectacular showpiece. It went from ugly, dark and dangerous, to BEAUTIFUL, bright, airy and completely usable space. You do not feel like you are in a basement anymore. It feels totally like a stunning new condo. From the new entrance and new windows, to the luxury kitchen and bathrooms it’s just magnificent.
Definitely recommend.
Thanks for all your hard work, guys!

Basement finishing + kitchen reno

We reached out to capable group to finish our basement and add some cabinetry and countertops to our kitchen. Yan and his team were amazing from the word go. They took the time to answer all our questions and helped guide us through everything from blueprinting and layout design to paint color and fixture selection. The end result is exactly what we wanted And matches the original design exactly. Overall we are extremely happy with Capable Group and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do renovations.

Bathroom Renovation

I cannot recommend Capable Group enough. Yan and his project manager, Michael, put the customer first. From the very beginning, Yan presented as professional, attentive to our wishes, and concerned to keep the costs as reasonable as possible. Throughout, the group were immediately responsive to all my needs and my concerns.

They took a very stressful situation - mold and resultant structural damage - and assisted in coming up with a plan of action. It certainly helps that many of the tasks - engineer, plumber, electrician etc. - are all in-house, which allowed me to relax and let them take care of coordinating everything. This also creates a level of comfort and trust knowing that the various aspects of the job are governed by the same care and responsibility exhibited by Yan throughout the project.

Yan presented us with a unique approach, in which an overall quote was provided which included our choice of basic tiles and fixtures. To the extent that we bought our own tiles and fixtures, we were then credited the amount it would have cost us to buy them through Capable. And the credit was eminently reasonable.

They were content to include small extras at no extra cost. Oleg, for example, took it upon himself to take a classic old and rusted bathroom vent (which I had grown attached to) and clean it up like new. It is the small things that count, and the small things you remember.

We have a wonderful bathroom!! And more importantly, I have a happy wife.

Thank you to the entire Capable team. We will be using you again shortly.

Basement Renovation

We had our basement renovated in the fall of 2018 with the Capable Group to our amazement.
An excellent experience with the entire project and a pleasure to work with everyone involved.
They truly are as the company name states. Capable of exceeding expectations with great standards.
We look forward to a continued relationship with our needs, and the needs of our family and friends in the near future.

Sincerely,

Gerard & Sherry Ayow

Basement Renovation

We recently hired Capable Basements to finish our basement (our house is a basic suburban semi-detached). We received attentive service, great quality, a headache-free process, and ultimately, excellent value. Here are a few more detail from our project:

1. THE PITCH. When we first met with Yan he assessed our basement needs, laid out our options, and gave us our price. He was fair and direct — at no point did we feel like we were getting a sleazy sales pitch. We had met with a couple of other basement contractors, one of which ended our first meeting with the old “well...if you sign right this very second then the price becomes...” Capable did not do this, and it was what allowed us to choose them with such ease.

2. THE DESIGN. We then met with the designer, Ludmila. She has an effortless calmness that makes you feel comfortable. She was easy to talk to would help us out by pointing out things we may have not thought of. Together, we laid out a plan and chose finishes. She then turned those ideas into a full 3D mock-up, highlighting every detail. We then changed those details 1 million times, and each time she made us feel like it was no inconvenience at all.

3. THE WORK. As with anything, there were blips along the way, but our project manager Michael kept us informed and was always available to field our many curious questions. We had the benefit of being home for bits and pieces of the project, and we were able to personally meet nearly everyone who worked on our basement. Everybody who came through our doors was polite, willingly addressed any and all questions, and worked really damn hard. We could hear Dennis the framer working non-stop all day. Mohammed the painter was friendly and let our kid watch him work. These are good workers, and great people.

4. THE PRICE. Not too high and not too low, Capable was the Goldilocks contractor of the 3 that we met with.

5. THE END. All in all, we are now left with a beautifully finished basement that looks clean and polished. We received exactly what we needed to meet the demands of our little family, and we’ve built a relationship with a company that we’d happily use again or recommend to others.

Basement and Mainfloor Renovation

We hired Cap-Able group after seeing work they done at a friends house. We first finished our basement and then had hardwood installed on the main and second floors. Yan, Mike and their team were excellent. Right from the start we kept up to date with the status of the project, they were very clean and professional. The attention to detail on all the finishing was excellent. I would highly recommend Cap-Able to family and friends and in fact already have.

Full Basement

Capable Group was amazing from begin to end.

As we tackled our first construction project Yan, Michael and the entire Capable Team were kind and considerate. Since their first project with us in 2017, we have hired them back for a bathroom reno in 2018.

The quality of their work and their timelines were on on the mark. Best of all their easy personalities make it easy for us to work with them.
