I cannot say enough good things about Everlasting Victorians. After firing our original basement finishing contractor we got ahold of Chris Harper at Everlasting Victorians. Our original contractor framed the basement and skipped town. Chris came in and took a look and explained to us what needed to be done. Chris explained that the framing the original contractor did was substandard, the layout was wrong, and the plumbing had to be moved. Chris explained why the layout the original contractor did would not work and drew up a new plan. After getting 4 new estimates we decided to hire Everlasting Victorians based on Chris’s layout, the references we checked that he provided, and his price. The bid we received from Everlasting. Once Everlasting Victorians had begun work I was impressed at the speed in which the project moved along. The sequence of events was flawless, all of his subs came when they were supposed to, did their work correctly the first time, and cleaned up when they were finished. There were never any problems with scheduling, delays, back orders, or people not showing up when they were supposed to. Every contractor was a gentleman, professional, sober, and did their job correctly. Having been in the construction industry for 20 years this really impressed me. I felt safe leaving my family at the house when they were working downstairs. Another reason I would recommend Everlasting Victorians is the pricing. Chris gave us a price and that is what it cost. There were no surprises, additional costs, or haggling. Chris knew what had to be done and included everything in the bid. Chris was up front and honest about everything and I feel he is the best choice we could have made. Once the basement was finished I realized how well the layout worked. The basement does not feel like a basement. The lighting is excellent, the layout works fantastically, and I have zero complaints. I only wish we had hired Everlasting Victorians in the first place.
