In the fall of 2016, after looking at several other Contractors, my wife and I contracted with We Build to do a complete renovation of our basement in our 60’s bungalow and turn it into a legal suite. We had previous experience working with Contractors when we renovated the main floor of our bungalow several years ago. It wasn’t a pleasant experience (after it was done I swore that we would never do a reno again but time heals) and so we were much more careful with whom we chose this time.
With our input, We Build did the design of our basement and provided drawings. It was a very well thought out design that took advantage of the latest technologies available to make the maximum use of space. The We Build estimate was within the range of the other estimates we were given.
They got all of the required permits.
The project included:
- demolishing the existing basement finish and taking it down to the concrete
- cutting the concrete in the basement floor to accommodate installing a kitchen, bathroom and moving the city water feed to a new location for the utility room
- leveling the concrete floor
- install a subfloor
- install all the required plumbing and electrical wiring including 2 new power panels and an additional power meter
- install 2 new furnaces and hot water tank
- build walls, insulate and sound proof
- install doors and windows including cutting larger openings in the concrete walls
- do all finishing, floor tiles, kitchen and bathroom tiles
- patching holes and fixing the parging on the basement walls
We Build performed the whole job, end to end. We had one person, Jason, who coordinated all of the work (much of which he performed himself) and got all of the required inspections done. Every step was overseen by Jason and he kept us informed throughout the renovation. He dealt with any changes to the plan that we found that we wanted to make during the renovation with enthusiasm, always wanting us to be as happy as possible with the end product. He was very easy to work with and always available. He kept the worksite remarkably clean. He paid attention to detail and ensured that the work done was of the highest quality. Without exception, all of the tradesmen that came in to work with him were great. Everyone showed up when they were scheduled to and worked until the job was done.
In addition to our basement we also had him install a new tub in our main floor bathroom including new tile and open up the space between our kitchen and living room by installing interior windows.
We highly recommend Jason and We Build. We are pleased with the work done and how it was done and delighted with the end result. Everyone who sees the job that We Build did are very impressed and often ask who did it.
We couldn't be happier with Jason's work and our beautiful new kitchen. His connections in the industry got us the best deals on cabinets, tile, granite installation, and window blinds. Jason did much of the work himself as he is a skilled craftsman. The to-be-expected delays were communicated promptly to us. He was always on time for us and cleaned up at the end of everyday. We look forward to asking WeBuild to do our bathroom reno.
We hired We Build to develop our basement. Jason designed our floor plan and we couldn't be more happier. He kept us informed on everything (big or small) and was always their to answer any questions we had. The quality of work is outstanding and pays attention to every detail. Trust, knowledgeable, excellent workmanship and professional. We would highly recommend We Build to anyone.
We contracted Jason and We Build to renovate and remodel our untouched home from the mid-1980's. The initial plan was to remodel the kitchen and give the rest of the house a "face lift". After our initial discussions with Jason we were put in contact with Erin, and she was able to add the details to transform our space into a home well suited to our lifestyle. Erin was also extremely helpful in selecting finishing materials and colours. The eye of a designer is very helpful!
Throughout the process Jason kept us up to speed with the progress we would be seeing. Being a house from the 80's, we were expecting that we may be hit with some interesting issues, but Jason kept us informed and was able to continue with little impact on our schedule. He did an excellent job of coordinating the large volume of work as well as the numerous trades that were required during the process.
One of the aspects we were most impressed with was the impeccable cleanliness of the house during the entire project. Often we wouldn't be able to tell (other than the progress we could see from previous visits) that anyone had been in the house to work due to Jason going through and cleaning up!
Overall Jason and We Build were able to convert our dated layout to a brand new house and we are loving it!
