Floor Lowering Project adds new Usable space to old historic house

Abarent Construction Ltd. teamed up with Aquarian Renovations Ltd. to create a new space in an old historic houses’s basement.  Prior to Abarent’s involvement the 1800 sq. foot basement had less than 6 feet of head room.  The new owner of this property wanted to be able to develop the space and make it a functional, usable extension of their home.  Abarent set about designing an Engineered Interior PWF Wall System that enabled them to effectively lower the basement floor.  When this basement floor lowering project was complete there was 7’10” of head room and a new concrete floor.  All Engineering Inspections complete, Abarent turned the project over to Aquarian Renovations Ltd who developed the basement space and renovated the remainder of the house.  What transpired created a beautiful home that the current owners enjoy with their growing family.

It is terrific to see that your company’s motto of “Quality without Compromise” is more than just words… The job was completed ahead of schedule and the workers ensured that when they left, the yard looked just like it did when they arrive. Well, actually it looked better…

Abarent provided a 3-page, itemized list of the specific work to be done at each stage of the project, including descriptions of optional issues (including additional costs) that might arise during the work. The company president did the initial walk-through for their estimate and later went through it, line by line. He pointed out potential problems and things we had to prepare for during the work (extra cracks, concrete dust, effects on neighbors, etc.)… Repairing a foundation is a very traumatic event for any householder because all of your house investment is (literally!) in the air. If you have to do it, call Abarent. They are professional – we cannot recommend them highly enough.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done. After this past weekend’s deluge, our basement was left completely dry.

We have had our fair share of unremarkable and even troublesome experiences with other contractors, so you guys were certainly a breath of fresh air. An honest contractor, bang on with the timeline, finished on time, within budget, your “nothing is too much trouble” attitude…and a job well done.
