Home improvement projects, both big and small, require attention to detail. Without it, costly mistakes can be made. For larger projects, hiring a general contractor can save you time and stress. A general contractor will manage every aspect of your project, as they have the experience needed to complete your project as smoothly as possible. Read about a homeowner from Toronto who hired a general contractor to help complete their basement renovation.
Complete Basement Renovation for $38,000 in Toronto
Ayan wanted to renovate their basement, which included installing a new bathroom and kitchen, as well as updating the main area. Ayan knew this meant potentially hiring and coordinating multiple trades. If your home improvement project is going to involve more than one trade, it is beneficial to hire a general contractor. It can be stressful enough to find one reputable pro, and now you have to find more than one! A general contractor will have access to dozens of reputable pros to complete any type of project. After doing their research, Ayan hired TNP Construction Group to manage and complete their basement renovation.
Ayan’s project was more than just a simple basement renovation, as it was going to involve plumbing, electrical, design, and carpentry. Rather than hiring several different companies and trying to manage them all, Ayan could rely on TNP Construction Group to manage everything.
Without prior experience, hiring multiple trades to work on a single project is hard. Between knowing when to schedule each trade, how long they will need, and who to communicate with for what, there are many moving pieces. Plus, by hiring separate trades, the cost for each trade will be significantly higher than if you hired them all together.
Right from the start, Enoch and TNP Construction Group were hardworking, on time, and friendly. A schedule was established and there was a trade at the house every day (including Saturdays) to get the job done. Depending on the task at hand, there were anywhere from 2-6 team members at the house. Ayan was notified ahead of time of who was going to be there, so they didn’t have to worry about anyone showing up unannounced.
If there were any changes to the project or issues that came up, Enoch would notify Ayan right away. This single line of communication made it easy for Ayan to follow up with the team, as well as keep track of the progress. Enoch, who managed all the trades working, was able to schedule and keep track of all the work on their own and relay info to Ayan when needed, with no issue. Without a general contractor, Ayan would have been communicating with multiple pros, attempting to rectify issues on their own.
In the end, Ayan was left with a beautiful new basement layout, including a brand new bathroom and kitchen (see all the completed photos here). Additionally, the project was completed sooner than expected, being finished in just under a month. For a project this size, Ayan was blown away by the commitment of the crew to get the job done fast. Throughout the entire project, Ayan felt comfortable communicating any changes they wanted to make, and TNP Construction Group didn’t hesitate to make them happy. As a bonus, there were some other odd jobs around the house that Ayan was looking to complete and Enoch took them on for no extra charge.
From time management to communication and experience, hiring a general contractor can help take away the stress of completing your home improvement project. Without Enoch’s experience in the field, as well as connections to reputable pros, Ayan would have been left scrambling to complete their basement renovation dealing with multiple companies at a time. Ayan feels confident that each aspect of the project, from plumbing to electrical is to code and completed by professionals.
