Home renovations can often be daunting tasks, and this project was no exception. Montreal homeowners Paul and Élodie were interested in pursuing their renovation goals, but with no prior experience in extensive home improvement projects, they weren’t sure where to start. Luckily, their introduction to Billdr allowed them to confidently move forward with the process and embark on their renovation journey.

Paul and Élodie were looking to make some big changes to their space. Wanting to live in a roomier home, they decided to extend both their ground floor and basement. The ground floor is undergoing renovations that involve enlarging the kitchen, dining room, and living room that will establish an improved flow of space with their open-concept layout.

For the basement, the space is being expanded in order to accommodate a larger family room, extra storage space, and a home gym for the utmost convenience.

Working with the best general contractor for the project

Not knowing where to look for a reliable contractor, their fears were palpable. That's where Billdr came in. After discovering Billdr through its website, testimonials, and before and after project photos, Paul and Élodie were reassured by the support offered. Josiane from Billdr played a crucial role in understanding their needs and putting them in touch with Stéphanie Augy from Zen Construction.

Stéphanie was exceptionally considerate, especially when taking into account the homeowners' personal circumstances, whether they telecommute or have children at home. Her transparent and constant communication reassured Paul and Élodie throughout the project. One of the most notable points was the strict adherence to the established schedule, which demonstrated Stéphanie's professionalism and efficiency.

In addition, the expertise of Billdr's partner architect, David Merlin, was critical to the success of the project. The cooperation between the owners, the contractor and Billdr was exemplary. Weekly meetings, daily check-ins and a transparent payment plan were the highlights of this collaboration.

In short, this renovation, although challenging, went smoothly thanks to the synergy between Billdr, Stéphanie from Zen Construction and the owners. The project not only transformed Paul and Élodie's home, but also reinforced their confidence in the renovation process and the benefits of a good owner-contractor relationship.
