Areas Of Satisfaction - Our entire experience from design to build completion was excellent. Nik, our onsite project manager was amazing to work with and kept the project running on time while still accommodating our needs as a family living in a construction zone.We have done quite a few renovations in the past, some quite extensive, and I can honestly say this experience was the best by a large margin. Artium’s approach ensures that all sub contractors are on the same page, coordinated and working together which is difficult to do. Our project was pretty simple from a design perspective but the design team still took the time to make sure the details were taken care of and were a real pleasure to work with.We are looking forward to our next project with Artium!
Areas Of Satisfaction - A number of elements:1) The time and feedback from Jenny and the design team was very good.2) All the team was very professional and were responsive to our questions or concerns.3) Despite a couple of challenges finishing off the shower, the quality of the work and follow-up has been very good.
Lead Source - Just Basements competed our basement 14 years ago.
Just Basements did an amazing job re-imagining our basement. They were courteous, professional and maximized every inch of space.

The most professional and organized company I have ever dealt with. The time we spent in planning our renovation was worth it and evident in the finished product.
Just Basements is a top quality company that produces an excellent product and provides outstanding service. We are recommending this company to all of our friends and family.
We hired Just Basement to renovate a basement bathroom and build a Sauna. While their core business is full basements, they tackled our smaller renovation. It was challenging to work within the existing infrastructure. During the reno they upgraded the existing plumbing and wiring to create a cleaner infrastructure. Our lead carpenter, Kevin, was easy to work with and produced high quality work. The finished space has more than met our expectation.
Just basement is the best basement design and construction company in Ottawa. They will make the complicated project much easier than you thought. They could provide unique, consistent and beautiful design. They always keep the construction site very clean. They also have very high stand of their work. After the project complete you will fall in love with the new basement for sure.
Norm and Amelia came up with a great design for the space we had and built it exactly to that plan.
Norm, Amelia, Jason and the rest of the guys were fabulous. There were a few surprises uncovered during our renovation, these were communicated quickly with Just Basements providing guidance as we considered our options. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.
All in all positive experience and would recommend

Just Basements turned an unfinished, overly-utilized basement into a wonderful, finished area that is functional and a joy within which to work. They were extremely sensitive to our health issues and did everything possible to reduce dust and to contain an area where mold was found. We definitely recommend Just Basements.
When we began this process we were searching for extra square footage to serve as a movie theatre, a games room and a home gym. What we ended up with was an extension of our home and a beautiful space to gather, relax and play with our children, family and friends.

Just Basements provided a great value for the money. We were thrilled with the results and appreciated their professionalism throughout the project. We were both working out of the home and gave them free run of the place, and never had any cause for concern.

They also offered great design suggestions that made the space very special and personalized.
