Highly recommend

We’re very happy with how our project turned out. They transformed the space from a cold dark basement to a warm bright living space in just four short weeks. They worked around our work schedule to work while we were not home and took care of everything from the planning, permits, installation, inspections, painting, and coordinating the electrical work. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Work!

One month start to finish. Carpenter was a true craftsman; beautiful work. The project manager stayed in touch and handled concerns well. Now a great new exercise space.

The workmanship was superior!

They finished the basement of our second home on Cape Cod. The workmanship was superior! Work started early and was completed timely. Their service personnel were fantastic to work with and very considerate of our requests.

This is Our Second Finished Basement

Very professional and easy to work with. Both jobs were finished very quickly and the final product is amazing. This system is slightly higher than a typical drywall product, but you get what you pay for.

We were impressed

They were attentive to designing a space to meet our needs but most importantly, we were impressed with the basement system because it is moisture-resistant, mold-resistant, and sound absorbent.

They were very responsive

They did a fantastic job remodeling our basement. They worked hard and were always professional. The wall panel system is high-quality and smart. They were very responsive to our questions, comments and requests. Our main contact even came in one extra day and fixed our minor complaints all by himself.

We have been loving our basement

The working crew was in and out in 2 weeks and we have been loving our basement for over a year now. Great peace of mind knowing that if (or when) a water problem happens in our basement, we can just pop a wall section off, fix the leak, and put the wall back on.
