I'm very happy with all the work Guelph
Reno has done for me.
I was concerned because my office
building had problems with moisture in the basement,
the apartment kitchen vent hood did not draw air,
and the main room in the finished basement seemed cool.
I was having second thoughts and worried that
I had bought a lemon.
The moisture problem was address with landscaping,
ensuring that soil was sloped away from the house so
that water would flow away from the foundation.
Simple common sense.
Richard said that this is also a "best practice"
in the building code, which makes you wonder
why the landscaping hadn't been done decades ago.
Richard determined that the apartment vent hood
was not vented to the outside.
It is not a charcoal filter type,
so this was basic incompetence by a previous owner
or installer. Richard vented it and now it works great.
The basement room had no heat supply or return.
Again, Richard was able to easily fix the heating
and it's now very comfortable.
I'm now very happy with the building and like
having my offices there.
Since the initial work, I've had Richard back
to tile the cold room floor, paint the main level
and install security bars.
