Bram renovated out unfinished basement. He had been recommended to us by friends and we liked him very much initially. His quote was a bit lower than others we received so we proceeded.
I believe Bram completely underestimated the time and budget. The job went on way longer then expected and he would ask us for the next payment before he'd reached the agreed upon milestones. At the end we were relieved to be done and fairly happy with the end results. I wish that was the end of the story.
The spring after our Reno was completed our basement flooded with clean water. It took 2 years of digging all around our house and sticking cameras into our weeping tile system to discover that when Bram smashed up the concrete floor to do the plumbing for the bathroom he also smashed the weeping tiles where they connected to the floor drain. The end result was that our weeping tiles were pouring under the foundation of our house. In the end we fixed the problem by installing a sump pump but it was an exhausting and expensive 2 years to get to that point. We have been really reluctant to do another renovation on our house due to this awful experience.
I cannot stress enough to those of you out there NOT to use this company. Bram is a scam artist. My wife and I went with Weitzman Homes because we are small business owners and believe in supporting small local businesses. Bram told us he would be done in 10 days and it took him twice as long. We were under a very strict timeline as we were expecting our 3rd child. He would show up for and hour and then leave until the next day. He then literally botched the entire job. The floor tile in our shower is completely discoloured as he used two different grout colours. The caulking around the shower is completely cracking and is discoloured black now (mold?). The tiles in the shower are not even cut evenly. He was supposed to hook up our exhaust fan and just left it. The handheld shower unit does not work and either is impossible to push the button in or is completey stuck. He somehow broke our toilet and then tried to fix it. It takes 4 flushes before it goes down (there was nothing wrong with it before he arrived). This was all done back in Feb andd we are still calling him to come back and fix it. He of course guaranteed everything. He is literally ignoring us. So, I now have to take him to court. What a disaster! If any trades are reading this. Bram is the reason why no one trusts any of you. He took our money and screwed us. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! I cannot stress that enough. My poor wife is devastated because all she wanted was a new bathroom for when the baby came. You should be ashamed of the way you do business Bram.

He is able to translate a client's needs into a visual materpiece that is second to none. His attention to detail, professional approach and multi-talented abilities would be of an asset to anyone looking to improve or update their home. We have recommended Bram to quite a few friends and they have all been incredibly impressed with the high caliber of his work. Bram's high standard and caring approach to his projects are a testament to his incredible work ethic. He has a clear focus on what the client needs and his years of professional experience are evident in encapsulating that, along with the current trends in home design and improvements. We are incredibly fortunate to have had Bram do some amazing work for us and would have no hesitation in continuing to highly recommend him.
