Why look at basement contractor reviews?
When deciding to finish your basement, the most important decision you will make is choosing the right contractor. Even if you plan on doing some of the work yourself, chances are you will need a professional for the electrical, plumbing, permits, insulation and HVAC systems.
The best way to go about choosing a contractor to help finish your basement is looking at reviews.
Look at some of the client reviews we have received over the past 15 years.
"My partner and I live in a townhouse and we could hear way too much of our heavy-footed neighbours’ lives! After some research on sound insulation, we hired Renco. After they had finished, we couldn’t hear noise from the next door townhouse anymore. They did a great job, in terms of quality, and the cost was very reasonable, given the price of the raw materials needed for complete soundproofing. Their workers always left the place clean when they left for the day. Since the first job, we’ve had Renco crews back three times to fix our creaky joists, put in a top-notch furnace/air filtration system, and do more soundproofing between interior floors. Each time, we’ve been very happy with their work"
"I hired Renco in 2006 to do a total renovation on my kitchen and insulate some outside walls. I was very pleased with everything. The price quote Terry gave me was medium when compared to other contractors, but the price on the quote was the same price I paid when the job was finished. The crew was excellent, tidy, and were pleasant—I felt comfortable having them in my house. I would hire Renco again."
"Renco has done several jobs at our home—landscaping with the construction of a retaining wall, building a shed, shingling our garage, installing air cleaners and more. The quality of the work was very good—or I wouldn’t have them back. I’m a woodworker myself, so I have a better than average idea of whether a repair has been done properly or not. I especially liked the follow-up service, where they checked in with us periodically to ensure that everything was okay and that no problems had developed.
Their pricing is very comparative; they were fair and the price Terry gave us when he did the job quote was the final price—except when I asked him to do extra work that wasn’t in the original quote.
The job crews were very efficient and cleaned up whatever mess they made as they went along. The work has held up over time and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again."
