We are planning to do a basement reno asap. I've checked on HandyCanadian and have called several contractors over to quote on our property. All of them sound great when they arrive, are extremely friendly, and very accomodating. I'm not sure how valid the feedback is on this website, and I would be willing to sacrifice some time and expense if I knew I was hiring a contractor that can be trusted. However, I don't have an existing relationship with any of them and am worried that I will have issues just as many others have with the majority of companies out there. I'm not necessarily looking for recommendations for contractors, but more about the process for those that are familiar with it. How do you decide on who to hire without having an established relationship? Any advice would be appreciated.
