Thank you Jay, Mariana, John, Derek for making our fence replacement project such a satisfying experience. We found Green Side Up on Home Stars and we are extremely pleased that we chose them to replace our fence. We were impressed by how professional, organized, and efficient Green Side Up is. We found that the quote for our fence project to be detailed and fair. Our journey began with obtaining an initial estimate from their website. We found that the online calculator to be a really helpful tool as a first step. Next, we had a more detailed meeting with Mariana. She was a pleasure to deal with and offered numerous helpful suggestions to some of the issues we were dealing with. We were also impressed with how quickly Mariana (as Project Manager) and Jay responded to any of our inquiries prior to and during the project. John and Derek were assigned to our project and they too were a pleasure to deal with. The fence that he and Derek built is beautiful. Looking at the fence, you can tell that the quality, workmanship, and attention to detail is top-notch. Thank you John and Derek for a great job! We appreciate the numerous helpful suggestions that John offered and for the gate that he built. We had decided to reuse our old gate, but with John having so much pride in his work, he could not fully complete the job without building a new gate. Our new gate is as beautiful as the rest of the fence. Both he and Derek were also conscious about cleaning up every day. Much appreciated. Having first-hand experience with Green Side Up, we can see why GSU has won so many awards and deservedly so. Quality work and great service! Once again, thank you Jay, Mariana, John and Derek. 11 out of 10. We will definitely look to GSU for our next project.

We decided to complete our basement this fall (2017) and we are really happy that we chose Finished Basement to do the work. We found the whole experience to be pain-free, beginning with our initial contact with Andrew who came to our home to provide the quote. Andrew explained the whole process to us in detail and if there were any questions or concerns, he got back to us promptly. Igor (the owner) was pleasant to deal with and provided helpful suggestions about our basement during his construction/design walk-through. It really helped that Finished Basement has a showroom with products to choose from. Nathalie was really easy to deal with and provided great suggestions on design coordination. The price from Finished Basement was fair and the work was completed ahead of schedule. We were extremely impressed with the crew who obviously took great pride in the quality of their work - their attention to detail, care, and workmanship were first-rate. They arrive each morning bright and early and worked long days. They always took time to answer any questions and suggestions that we had. And at the end of each work day they did a great job cleaning up. Thank you very much Igor, Andrew, Natalie, and the whole Finished Basement crew. We are loving our basement! We would not hesitate to recommend Finished Basement to our family and friends. Definitely 10 out of 10.
