Background and Personal Information:

Craig Basaraba was raised in Orillia and after graduating from high school, he completed an apprentice program for his carpenter's license. Wow, to think that was over 30 years ago! From there, Craig started his own company in 1989, beginning as a sole proprietor under the company name, On The Level Contracting. In March 2006 On The Level Contracting incorporated and changed the name you now know and have always trusted, Basaraba Construction Ltd.

Craig has been married for 25+ years to his wife, Kristine and together they have two adult children; Karlie and Joel [and one loving son-inlaw, Luke]. Joel recently joined the company and plan to add to the growth that Basaraba Construction Ltd has seen. Craig states, "the enjoyment of what I do has allowed my wife and I to build, purchase, renovate and sell many properties over the years. In the past, we have owned many rental properties with the goal of helping those that need it. Additionally, we developed a 24 lot subdivision in Marchmont, ON. that went on the be named Providence Lane. Finally, our most recent bigger project was purchasing an old lodge on Sparrow Lake, The Stanton House, and renovating it to host church retreats and weddings."

Craig enjoys learning and is always expanding his knowledge of the industry though continuing education. He has completed 8 courses in home inspection, receiving his certificate and license, as well as, courses keeping up with the building code. Craig is a "people person" and always strives to maintain a good rapport with his customers.

At Basaraba Construction Ltd. our main objective is to help you 'Build it your way!'

To help build confidence in a customer and their new build, the first step spending time reviewing what the customer is looking for and working through a financial spreadsheet. These are used for budgeting purposes so that each customer is aware of where every dollar is spent and highlights where proprieties should lay. from there, Blueprints are always reviewed together and feedback is taken. Counsel and expert advice is given through constant communication between the project manager and customer ensuring that the customer is satisfied up until they receive their new keys.
