Its Always Basement Renovation Season!

……So Make Sure to Choose the Right Contractor for YOUR Basement Renovation!

Choosing a contractor to complete your dream basement renovation doesn’t need to be a stressful ordeal. No need to stress about the little things, thats what we are here for.

lets get back to our Tips from the Pro’s. In a couple previously blog posts about basement renovation help, we compiled the following:

  1. Are they insured?                                                                                                                          basement Renovation
  2. Are they a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau)
  3. How many years have they been in the basement renovation industry?
  4. Have they done a thorough basement inspection?
  5. What to do with posts & beams
  6. Who will design the floor plan?

 Here are Some More Tips to Help you Choose the Right Basement Renovation Contractor:

1. Can they provide references?

When choosing the right contractor to complete your dream basement renovation, references are great. You want to ensure that others have had good experiences. It’s also a great way to see their work. HomeStars is also a great place for referrals. The site itself is very secured, and reliable. Where clients not only write a review, but also rate their services out of a scale from 1-10. References definitely help make the decision process of hiring the right contractor for your basement renovation easier! Have a look at some of our reviews below:

2. Can my contractor help find materials at wholesale prices?

When working on a strict budget for your basement renovation, getting wholesales prices can really help. Labour will cost what it costs, there really isn’t any way to “save” there. However savings on materials can help. Saving on flooring, tile work, stonework etc can help you pull off the look you are aiming for at the budget your pocket is comfortable with. This is why clients love swinging by the showroom, because we are able to show them “basic” ideas to custom work and everything in between. Also if its not in the showroom – we have a contact for you: Custom cabinets, audio visual,  granite, custom glass work and the list goes on…. Being in this business now for 16 years, our contact list of savings has grown!

3. Are they easily accessible?

We all can agree, customer service in any industry is very important. Being able to reach your contractor day or night is essential. For most people, completing a basement renovation can feel overwhelming. A lot of decisions need to be made: flooring, paint colours, layout etc. You want to choose someone you can rely on to walk you step by step through the process. Our clients always rave about how easily accessible we are, offering evening & weekend appointments and always available by phone!
