Basement Transformation in Gloucester

Our quest for a contractor started in July 2015. We wanted to remodel our basement from a 1970 vintage dungeon to a modern day brightly lit, warm, comfortable recreation room and office. We interviewed a number of Ottawa-area contractors ranging in size from a one man operation to a large organization. By late November we had decided that none of them met our criteria. We sourced information from the Better Business Bureau, talked to previous clients, and met with Job Doctor. Little did we know at the time in early December that the title Job Doctor would be synonymous with our basement renovation.
We explained to Job Doctor what we wanted, and early in December they returned a detailed cost estimate for the work to be undertaken. After some discussion with a revised work expectation, the final work plan was prepared and approved. Work started on the day of Ottawas largest snow storm of the year (over 50 cms). Twenty six days later, we had a new living space complete with a rejuvenated recreation room, bathroom, laundry room, and home office.
However, during construction a number of issues were discovered as a result of the demolition. A hole as big as a heat vent was found in the main floor wall, causing condensation and black mould abundant in the area where the home office was to be located. Job Doctors craftsmen were not fazed; the cause was quickly determined in addition to what was needed to resolve these issues. While doing the corrective work, dry rot was also discovered on several load bearing exterior walls. As the title suggests Job Doctor knew what to do and how to do it, and quickly addressed these problems.
We found the Job Doctor Crew worked hard and were very respectful. Their motto is the customer is always right and they were eager to address ideas that developed during each phase of the activity. Issues that were major in our minds were taken on and resolved quickly without major consequences in terms of budget or timelines. We found that the office staff seemed to know when to call, check on things, and make sure outstanding items were addressed.
In the end our work budget was extended due to the issues identified. However, we also had the confidence in Job Doctor to complete the needed repairs to the exterior walls. No challenges were beyond the skill set of Job Doctor and the remedies were executed with a surgeons precision. When delivery items with suppliers were less than favourable, Job Doctor was there supporting us until the outstanding items were resolved to our satisfaction. We recommend their services and as other clients have stated, we will use their skill set again.

SUNROOM ADDITION

In 2009 the Job Doctor Company constructed a sun room addition to my home at 19 Keno Way in Kanata. I dealt with the owner, the architect and the construction supervisor.
From the beginning, the owner and his workforce provided first class service in every aspect of the planning, construction and finishing of this project. They quickly translated my requirements into a practical design that turned out to be functional, efficient and attractive. The design successfully integrated the new space into the house without looking like an addition.
The workers performed very well under difficult climate conditions (it was the middle of winter). They found creatibe and innovative solutions to the various challenges that came up from time to time. I was consulted every step of the way, and felt that we were functioning as a team in a real partnership to achieve the best possible results.
Having had many experiences with construction projects, some running in the hundreds of missions of dollars, I found this firm to be exceptional in every sense of the term. I highly recommend them.

Work done at 36 O Hara Drive

I would like to provide the following testimonial for several renovations we had done by Job Doctor at our home.
Our relationship wit the team at Job Doctor started with the replacement of a structural beam in our garage. We had received a recommendation for Job Doctor from the engineer who assessed the deterioration of the beam in our garage.
The team worked hard and tidied up after themselves and the estimate we received from Job Doctor was very firm. The office kept us informed of the timeline which was very important to us. We had worked with other contractors and were left in the dark about the work plan and timelines.
We were so happy with the approach of the Job Doctor team that we had them finish our basement, retrofit our stair and hall with hardwood, replace our roof and renovate our kitchen. On every job it was the same story: firm estimates and deadlines met!
This is a contractor who seems to value their customers and will work with them to find the best solution for the renovation. From the front office person all the way to the crew who comes to your home, they all try to work with you to make the job a success.
I would not hesitate to recommend Job Doctor for your renovation because they can handle just about anything!
