Better Built Vision

Our Vision

Our vision is to transform basements from unfinished to unbelievable by using superior products and workmanship to achieve 100% customer satisfaction. Established 2008, by 3 driven people: James & Deborah Tranmer and their good friend Randall Michalek. With previous experience in the home improvement realm, they knew the inconvenience that comes with reno-projects. Dealing with different contractors, miscommunication, designers, scheduling- it can almost be just as messy as what’s in the basement crawl space! So they sought out to provide a service and alleviate all of the stress for home owners. Now the company services all of Connecticut (from one office we may so proudly add) and even Massachusetts. While we plan to continue our expansion and disbursement, one thing that we won’t spread out, is your need to shop around. We’re devoted to being the One-Stop-Shop for your home’s finishing needs.
