We hired Measure Up to do a major main floor renovation. We added approx 200 square feet to the main floor by building a floor over an 'open to below' concept space. This required engineered drawings, and custom floor joist system. It also required that we take off the back of the house, remove existing windows, re-frame the exterior wall and install new windows. We also took out a kitchen and installed a new one with a 10 foot island. We installed new hardwood in the 'new ' space, ceramic tile in the new kitchen, new back splash, granite counter tops, lighting, new paint, baseboard and casing throughout the main floor. We also had to do some flooring repair in the basement, had new railing, hand rail and baseboard installed in the basement. We also added 2 new window openings in the basement. It was a very extensive renovation that was handled extremely well. The trades came in in a timely manner, Darrel was on site every day that we had someone working on the project. He handled the 'hick-ups' efficiently and kept us up to date on the progress. We always knew what was going to happen next and when. Darrel is very knowledgeable, conscientious and meticulous!!
We are very excited to have Measure up back to complete the master ensuite transformation early 2017!!
My deck is better than expected and I enjoy it more because I got to know Darrel and his team that built it! Really a pleasure to work with good people, that are passionate about what they do. All members of his team provided high quality service, were very professional and courteous.
Darrel took care of all the details (permits, removal, build) and kept me well informed about any changes or budget impacts and did a good job of providing me with advice while still respecting my decisions. He understood the vision and went above and beyond to make us proud of the end result.
Highly recommend Measure Up, very pleased with my experience and results.
We contacted Darrel about our basement renovation based on the reviews on this site. We did not personally know anyone who had worked with him but upon meeting him knew right away he would be a good fit for us and really cared about the quality of his work.
Due to a previous 'not so wonderful' experience with a general contractor, we hired Darrel to do about 2/3rd of the work in the basement and had our own people that we had already used before and trusted to do several jobs as well. Our job was a complete gut of our 700 square foot basement, foundation crack repair, spray foam insulation, some plumbing repairs, then reframing, new laundry room, bathroom, office space and TV room.
The project was completed on time and with virtually NO problems whatsoever. There were some small issues with the carpet installation which Darrel had corrected straight away.
All in all, it was one of the most painless and easy renovations I have ever done. Darrel is incredibly easy to work with, always on time, always fair, always courteous and considerate of your views, your home and the costs involved. Darrel is a very good General Contractor - he hires quality trades people and is on top of everything that is going on. We were extremely pleased with Darrel and his team and love our new basement. We will be asking Darrel to work with us again in the future on other projects.
Thanks for everything Darrel!
My family and I felt extremely lucky to have contracted Darrel for this job. He was professional from start to finish, and was always willing to accommodate and ensure our satisfaction. We were particularly impressed by how proactive he was in getting our city approvals and building permit - wasting no time at all. As soon as the permit was received, he immediately started demolition of our old deck and construction of the new one. Everything was done perfectly, in a timely manner, and within the price that was quoted. I would highly recommend Measure Up Contracting to anyone looking for a reliable, honest, and talented contractor.
