Creating Space Inc., Basements

Posted on: 2/11/2013

Great Quality, Great Value

This is a long overdue review of a basement finishing project that Creating Space completed for us in July 2012. I wanted to wait awhile to make sure that there were no quality issues with the project in the first few months of its use. I can say now that we are unequivocally happy with the work that Todd and his crew did and really love our basement. We interviewed 5 contractors before hiring Todd to finish our half basement. The most important factors to us were confidence in the contractor's ability to meet budget and schedule goals. Also important was the contractor's vision for the space. As the space was completely unfinished and not stubbed for a bathroom, we were relying on contractors to give us a vision of how they would complete the space. Because Todd specializes in basements, we felt most comfortable with his vision of the space (adapted for our specific needs) and his ability to execute on the plan. Once work kicked off in May 2012 it proceeded according to the schedule we had been provided and was completed as expected. The outcome is fantastic. We have a great living space that we use everyday. The craftsmanship is solid. In particular, the custom wet bar designed by Todd's cabinetmaker is the centerpiece of the space and draws rave comments anytime family or a neighbor visits. Todd provides certainty as to cost in the contract and the only overages we had were changes we made along the way. Todd did a fantastic job with our project.

Just Fences, Inc.

Look No Further - 5 Stars

I got quotes from 6 different contractors before deciding on Just Fences. The spectrum of fencing contractors runs from larger corporate-type outfits to general contractors with a van and a ladder. Just Fences is in the sweet spot of specializing in fences but still providing amazing customer service. Just Fences was competitive on price, courteous to deal with, and did fantastic professional work. The owner, Jon Archer, was always on time and worked on site the entire time our fence was being built. Jon and his team built a custom arbor for us that the neighbors all rave about. In my experience you can look no further for your next fencing job.

Apex Fence Company

Would Not Honor Their Own Proposal

My neighbor and I worked diligently with Apex to install a significant amount of fencing in our yards. I received a written proposal and was ready to move forward when the sales representative told me that Apex would not honor their agreed upon pricing. Their revised pricing was significantly above other contractors' quotes so I took my business to a competitor of Apex. As a result, I cannot speak to the quality of Apex fences, only to the quality of the sales function which I would characterize as below average.
