We were very happy we picked Mode Built for our legal basement suite we had put into the house we moved into. Right from getting a quote you could tell they knew what they were doing. Everyone was professional and very detailed orientated. Everything was done by code and all permits were taken care of. They were so considerate and accommodating and would often plan for quieter jobs when my daughter was napping so that she wouldn't wake up from the noise. Martina was quick to respond and was amazingly patient with the many questions I had. They did amazing at staying within our budget and made the whole renovation process so easy.

If we have any more renovations we wouldn't think twice and will call Mode Built, and would recommend them to anyone that asks for contractors to get something done on their house.

We had MODE renovate our basement in a 1962 bungalow. They were amazing to work with. Martina emails back so quickly and all the persons who entered our home were polite and professional. When we needed to make adjustments to the schedule they were incredibly accommodating. We made a few changes along the way (tankless hot water, sub floor, flooring etc.) And they were incredibly easy going. We'd definitely hire them again, our basement looks awesome!

At the beginning of summer we had our basement developed by Mode Built. I got three different quotes from various recommended contractors and was most impressed with Ryan at Mode Built. Ryan was the only one of the three contractors who really listened to what I was wanting in the downstairs space, which was a bit of a challenge because of the placement of the windows, furnace, support beams and bathroom rough-ins.

Ryan and Sean (who are the business partners) have a really hired a great team. I am a shift worker and was at home sleeping during most of the renovations. What really impressed me was that Ryan asked the workers (Mike and Jon who were fantastic) that if at all possible to do the really loud stuff like jack hammering after 3pm so I could get enough sleep! If anyone at my work is planning on doing renovations I have been telling them about Mode Built and their consideration for shift workers.

During the 7 weeks they worked on our house there was not a day that someone wasn't working downstairs. Mike and Jon, who were here doing a good portion of the basement were amazing, they were easy to talk to and would answer my questions if any came up. The basement was finished on time with all the appropriate permits. Our family is so happy with the basement, the finishing is amazing, and our guests love the space we finally have for them.

This review is long overdue but so necessary. We had Mode Built come in and finish our basement before we were due to expect our little one. From the moment we got our initial quote with Ryan, we knew that we were getting professionalism and quality. No other company that we gathered quotes from provided a floor plan right off the bat. Ryan was so personable and understood our needs and respected our timeframe.

From start to finish, everyone at MODE is so personable, responsive and incredible at what they do. Shaun took the time to answer any questions that we had or to fill us in on what was going on. We always loved whenever Shaun would pop in. We also loved that they had an app which provided a timeline of what was being done when so we knew which sub-contractors to expect. Whenever there were any issues or concerns, Mike and Martina made sure that they were addressed right away.

We could not be more happy with how our basement turned out. They matched it to the rest of the home to the best of their ability and not only were they within budget, but they also completed the job ahead of schedule. There were a few things that came up after the basement was finished and after reaching out to Martina, Shaun came out and addressed it right away. From start to finish, it was an absolute pleasure working with MODE and we could not recommend them enough.

When I first started contacting contractors in late 2021 to look at completing our basement project (full development with bedroom, bathroom, bar area, tv/fireplace area and storage rooms), Mode Built was one of the companies that came to look at the scope and scale of my project (just under 1000 sq. feet of undeveloped basement). I had about a half dozen companies look at my project and prices ranged by as much as $50,000! Ryan was by far the most detailed and easy to discuss my project with and provided me with much more information than any of the other contractors I had look at my project. Needless to say, from our first meeting, Mode was who I wanted to do my project with.

Their approach to starting any work was much different than the other contractors and they put in a lot of work before any money is put down. Other contractors wanted upward of a 5% non refundable deposit on their best guess of how much the project would cost without providing anything. Mode provided drawings (thanks Jas) and a breakdown of costs so that I could go out and find the materials I wanted to see if my selections were within the budget they came up with. Mode was pretty much spot on with providing me a budget for what I wanted so I knew that if I wanted to change anything, it would would be on me.

I cannot say enough about the owners Ryan & Shaun and two of their employees, Mike and Kevin, who were fantastic to work with and would listen to me and what I wanted. They were very open on what would work and what might not work with my ideas. Their attention to detail was fantastic as they would point stuff out to me and fix it when I did not even notice it. Mode’s office staff (Elizabeth and Martina) would reply to my inquiries and keep me updated on what was happening with my project.

Although Mode does not have any internal interior design consultants, they were able to put me in touch with one they have worked with on other projects. It was amazing to work with Nan as she brought our ideas to fruition by helping us decide on colours, flooring and tile work.

All the subs Mode uses were amazing and once again took the time to work with me to make sure I got what I wanted with my finished product. I would not hesitate to use any of them on other projects I have if ever needed.

As much as the project took a little longer than planned, given the circumstances of supply chain issues during 2022, Mode would keep me updated and move work around to limit these delays as much as possible.

I am looking at what else I could have done in my house just to have these guys back! I would have no hesitation in hiring them or recommending them for any renovation work I may have in the future.

If you have work to do, give Mode a call. You will not be disappointed.

I found MODE online and based on positive reviews hired them to finish the basement of our half duplex in Summerside. They were exactly what we needed - professional, affordable, reliable & accommodating. Ryan, Shaun, Martina, Mike and all the rest of the MODE team did a wonderful job. On time and on budget!

After checking multiple different contractors, Ryan was the one who gave us the best feeling that the basement suite would be done right. Ryan was talkative and give us a fairly good idea of what to expect with the entire process. He helped us out with design and gave us a cost estimate that we thought was fair.

Mode Built got all the necessary permits and when Shaun and his crew arrived they worked quickly and efficiently to tear the basement apart so that they could rebuild our envisioned basement suite. The guys worked hard, and were meticulous in their work. Pays to have some knowledge and hard work.

Mode went above and beyond on a couple things that we wanted for the upstairs which really helped us out.
Apart from being very courteous and hard working, I genuinely felt that they were in it to help our vision (or lack their of) come to life.

We had some small issues with timing the install of the windows (a combination of our fault and the window contractors fault) but beyond that I didn't have any problems at all.
Throughout the entire process, Shaun and Ryan were in constant communication with us so we knew what was going on every step of the way.

The basement suite turned out great and we already have plans to hire them for an upstairs bathroom and eventually a kitchen.

We recently had our basement renovated with Mode Built and they did a fantastic job! This was the first time being involved in a renovation project and we didn't know what to expect. Ryan, Shaun, Martina, Mike, Jason and team made the whole process a great experience for us. All the work was done well, and the contractors were all very professional and great to work with. Overall we got everything we had discussed and wanted and are now really enjoying our new Basement! We would absolutely recommend working with Mode and will definitely work with them again for any future projects.

We contracted MODE for a total condo renovation - a relatively big project touching every part of our place. Flooring, counters, cabinets, railings, ceiling, plumbing, fixtures, and some minor structural changes on top. They delivered everything on time and on budget, which was very impressive considering the entire project happened during the pandemic, and supply chain problems were starting to kick in near the end.

Right from the beginning they were straight forward with us, letting us know some of our ideas were probably impractical, but quickly offering up alternatives. They also asked far more questions than other contractors we talked to, talked about their business process and timelines, and were generally open and transparent about everything right off the bat. They had us meet directly with their suppliers across town to pick out every little piece we needed, and everyone we dealt with was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and more than willing to answer our questions.

We moved out to give them full access to our condo unit, and fourteen weeks later, we had a brand new place. They were quick to alert us to any issues throughout the process (the building is only from the 1980s, but still old enough there were some surprises of course), and gave us updates (or encouraged us to just pop in) whenever we needed. Their team, and all the trades they brought in, were friendly and helpful, and everyone did a fabulous job. We asked a lot of questions and they were very patient with all of our inquiries, though obviously it is hard to get a firm answer sometimes with multiple groups all involved in some decisions along the way.

We'd definitely recommend MODE for any projects - big or small - you come across. They were amazing at every step and we would happily use them again if we ever needed more work done in our place.

Bianca Martin

Amazing work! They went above and beyond to give us the perfect basement. High quality finishings and they paid attention to every detail. Really friendly staff and very responsive.

Laura Compton

We have just completed finishing our basement with MODE and we couldn’t be happier. We met with Ryan (co-owner) to obtain an initial quote, and we felt at ease with him immediately - he took the time to truly understand what we were hoping to accomplish, he fully measured the space for himself (the only contractor we got a quote from to do so!), and he answered all of our questions. The initial quote we received from him was the most detailed of all of the ones we got and the only one to incorporate some of the things that we had discussed with him that were unique to our project versus a standard basement renovation.

Once we began the renovation process, we were so pleased with the entire Mode team - Shaun (co-owner and lead on construction), Mike, Jon and Jason were friendly, polite, knowledgeable and dedicated to making sure the work was correct. Martina was available to answer questions or keep us up to date on any changes. We were also very impressed with the sub trades that they hired for electrical (Valiant) and plumbing (Clover), and felt that everyone’s work was held to the same high standard. We appreciate the overall respectfulness for us and our home that the team conveyed, and their dedication to ensuring that everything was completed exactly as we wanted it.

We appreciated how closely the team stuck to the initial timeline set out and the overall quality of the work we received. We couldn’t be happier with our new basement space and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MODE to anyone, or to use them for the next project in our home.

Thank you MODE!!

Chad Harker

Incredibly professional and helpful. Ryan gave me great advice that saved me thousands and is going to save me much more in the future. By far one of the best companies I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Really appreciate everything they have done for me and will definitely be back in the future.
