We wanted to create a lower level living space in our home, which included a family room and en-suite bedroom as well as having storage closets for easy access to seasonal items. It was very important to us to have the lower level continue the feel of the main floor, including drywall, color, and trim. We looked at three companies carefully and selected CWE Renovations. CWE owner Dan Nikitovic understood our budget and created a plan with a detailed expense projection that gave us an opportunity to enhance what we thought would fit our vision. Dan and his crew were outstanding from the beginning of our project to the final touch-ups to make the job perfect. From the early planning stage, through the adjustments that we asked for, and on to the end, Dan and his two lead carpenters were able to guide us in common sense approaches to the carpentry, HVAC, plumbing and electrical installations. Based on our experience, we plan to use CWE for a second project in the coming year. We have no regrets in choosing CWE Renovations and can highly recommend Dan and his company.

I was happy with the overall product. Weâ ve had a number of projects done in our home (and our previous house), and they are never perfect, but this one was by far our best experience. With previous renovations, Iâ ve had times where I couldnâ t even get a hold of the contractor. We never had that problem with CWE. There was one time hold-up, but that was due to materials delivery. For the most part, the project was completed in a very timely manner. The team was professional. They cleaned up after themselves and were always in communication with us. There were a few changes in the overall bill, but we did make some add-ons along the way, so that was to be expected. All-in-all we are very happy with both the process and the product.

Dan was very informative about how to raise the quality and value of my home during our initial walk through. He treated our home as if it were his by explaining what he would do, not selling anything, while keeping in mind our vision and budget. Overall a great experience, would recommend and use them again

Response from Company:

Thank you so much for your feedback. Hope you guys are will enjoy your basement for many years to come.

Bad customer service. Gave wrong charges on sq ft calculations by thousands of dollars. CWE did not work well with us. When asked to do repairs or questioned, CWE is very defensive and puts the blame on customer or others. Example: he was not putting insulation in between drywall of laundry room and bedroom. He never told me. He assumed I knew. When I asked about it he said, well it was not included in price so gonna charge you for it plus not putting up drywall in laundry so more charges. In the beginning, I asked CWE to sit down with me to go over more details of the whole project, he says something like, what is there to plan? You told me the design and layout and I make it like that. CWE said it will take them 1-2months to finish but realistically, it took them over 4 months. Not good on their word. They should just say 2-4 months or more. That is just plain false! CWE started out strong with framing but took more than a month to line up electrician and HVAC to do 2-3 days worth of job. After that everything slowed down. Waited for materials for weeks to be delivered. Crew came here and there. Some days they never come but CWE does not communicate days they are working and not working. Drywall was not done excellent. I had an expert do inspection of drywall. It needed repairs. CWE did not want to do repairs. So, I had to hired another person to repair CWE imperfections and mud and finish the job. After that CWE owner never came to do the work but only sends his crew out. CWE owner never came back to inspect crews work after each project. I had to always take pictures for CWE owner to see the repairs needed. I complained about how long they taking and contractor blamed others for timeframe. CWE gets upset when I question them. He should line up all the work but instead in between projects, it took weeks to get materials and when crew came, sometimes they worked part-time only. Crew comes to house not looking happy. They seemed mad sometimes. CWE overcharge me for 1,850 sq ft of materials when my measurement was only 1,095 sq ft. I was overcharged over $2700 more than what it actually was. Installation sq ft charge was a different sq ft. All matrial and installation sq ft were all different mesaurements which did not makes sense. Toward the end, CWE became unresponsive to our inquiries. They did not respond to our text either.

Response from Company:

At CWE Renovations, we value all feedback, both positive and negative, as it allows us to continuously improve our quality of work, and our processes. Renovations often become emotional for the client as living situations are temporarily turned upside down. We do our best however to communicate up front, and along the way, so everything is as smooth as possible. To address a few points on the client?s comment: Prior to commencing project, it was explained that there could be delays when it came to city inspections (which happened). Unfortunately, this idea was dismissed by the client. The expectation was an ideal timeline that did not account for any delays. There was one instance of a delay with material delivery. Such delays are beyond our control. Another reason for the project delay was the continuous requests for task changes. Prior to the start of a project, a timeline is proposed, and specialists are scheduled according to the best of our ability. As this client removed tasks from our schedule, to have a family member (whom they are referring to as the ?outside expert?) complete some work instead of us, we best utilized the time to address other jobs in our pipeline, ultimately throwing off our scheduled timeline. On a principal basis we do not mind if a client wants to make changes, and we try to accommodate our clients? Needs. However, this creates scheduling pressure on our staff. I tried to be clear in communicating that this would cause scheduling issues when needed to come back on the project. This was again dismissed by the client. Concerning charges, after an initial visit to a project site we provide a comprehensive estimate. The estimate is based on a set of assumptions, since we are essentially starting with an empty shell. We then make tweaks until a final proposal is accepted by the client. It was the same in the case of this client, however after the project started there were a few more changes made to the original proposal. The numbers being referred to here are estimate numbers. The client was not charged for anything that was not installed. Once installed, any quantities that needed adjustments were adjusted, and payment was based on quantities that were agreed to. We regret that this became a particularly hard project on both the CWE and the client. The staff and subcontractors for CWE were unhappy due to working conditions that they feel were created by the client. They felt distracted and met with continuous tweaks and questions unrelated to the task at hand. As professionals they finished their work but were happy to move on to the other projects. While I personally do not mind answering questions and providing additional information to clients, outside contractors (HVAC, Electrical) and staff often find this to be a significant distraction that slows them down. Once more, I would like to thank you for your feedback and to wish you and your family all the best going forward.
