Renovation Reviews

Take a look at one of the renovation reviews from Hans about his family’s North Vancouver Renovation:

In one of our renovation reviews, Hans outlines why he and his family decided to stay in their home and renovate and decided to use Sasen Renovations to proceed with their basement renovation. We worked closely with their family to provide a space that would work for their busy, outdoor, family lifestyle. Hans was happy with the relationship built, in addition to the quality that was built as well.

What Good People are Saying...

We recently completed two projects using Sasen for all aspects of the job.  One was a restoration of the exterior of our 1899 heritage house and the other an addition to the back of the house to put in a new, larger kitchen, laundry room and bathroom. We are very pleased with the results of both projects.  The projects were managed extremely well.  The various stages of the work were scheduled so that there were few delays nor were we ever overwhelmed with sub contractors all showing up at once.  Estimates for both cost and time to completion were generally accurate.   Any problems and unforeseen issues were dealt with quickly and effectively.  The Sasen carpenters were very skilled, professional and courteous.  The quality of their work was excellent particularly in the areas of restoration.   We were very satisfied with the sub contractors Sasen used. Matthew was easy to communicate with, returning calls promptly and providing site visits whenever we felt it would be useful.

We would recommend Sasen to anyone considering doing these types of projects.

From the beginning, Sasen Renovations were upfront in their estimate, making us aware of potential changes given the many unknowns involved in installing a new bathroom in our basement.  When we encountered unforseen circumstances , we worked through them as a team, always to arrive at a satisfactory solution.  Sasen never forced a solution on us, always providing multiple options and honest opinions.  They paid attention to the small details; accommodated our schedule by delaying portions of the work to allow us to entertain house guests, and helped carry groceries up our steep, snowy driveway since our garage was under renovation.  For what morphed into an extensive renovation, we were both surprised at how little stress it involved in our lives.

Matthew and his team have completed two major renovations for us – interior and exterior – and we are in discussion with him about our next renovation. Matthew brings vision, creativity and passion to his work. His team embodies a strong work ethic and superior craftsmanship which results in a high quality end result. Matthew is professional and respectful; he embraces each project with commitment and determination along with a robust customer satisfaction orientation.

Most outstanding were the solutions that arose from the issues that are so typical in renovations. When a renovation unfolds “a departure from the plans” is either necessary or desired and the ensuing period of anxiety for this homeowner was addressed by Sasen directly and caringly. Once the work had reached that no return point, unlike with the exclusionary practices of many other builders, Sasen included us every step of the way. Earmarked by their integrity to finish the project with both function and the right aesthetic appeal we were pleased to be a part of the process. I now admire my home and so does the rest of the neighbourhood. It was, and is, the best renovation money I ever spent!

We have been do-it-yourselfers all our lives, and having had bad experiences with hired help in the past, we were somewhat apprehensive about our reno project. But we were very impressed with Sasen’ s first class, quality workmanship. Sasen treated us with respect and we felt our concerns were dealt with openly and honestly. They had solid, achievable ideas, and planning was a gratifying process. It is truly comforting to be able to communicate with a contractor in a meaningful way and feel that he listens and understands, and refrains from pressuring you to do more than you want. The entire process was a very pleasant experience and we felt our money was well spent. We would not hesitate to call on Sasen Designs for any future renovation needs.

We have contracted Sasen D & D to do many large and small projects on our 1912 home, including a dormer addition, structural remediation, and a garage. We have been very happy with the way that they listen to our wishes, while at the same time they give us suggestions and design ideas, and keep everything properly done according to the building codes. They also bring with them a great team of subcontractors, so they get the whole job done from start to finish.

We are very pleased with the work done on our sunroom. The workmanship was very professional. His workers were polite, respectful and cleaned the site after every workday. Matthew recommended reliable companies to complete the job, such as the window company. I would recommend Sasen for any home makeover or construction.
