Better Built Basements worked with us on all the design work. They reviewed the process in detail with us, gave us the names of the retail stores and the names of our contacts for picking out the finished products for the basement. You can use your own home improvement stores like Home Depot or Lowes if you want or any other bath/kitchen suppliers that you would want to use. The sky is the limit and they tailor to your needs and wants. As little or as much as you want. Depending on your budget and the finished product. Our project included a full bath, a home office, a bar area with games, and a TV sitting area for the family to gather and watch a TV show or movie on the big screen. We also added a gas fireplace in our design. They work from your budget. So depending on what that entails you can go high end and go to some of the more expensive places if you wish.
Once the job is started, you get access to their web-site and a calendar letting you know what will be done on a daily basis, i.e. painting on the 10th and 11th, flooring on the 13th. They move according to your schedule, but you do need to be ready with your choices as soon as it's time to do the work. They lay that all out for you and you are fully aware of what the next step will be and that "you need to have the tile picked out for the bathroom by next Tuesday". It' all methodically managed and the payment is broken out into portions of the job being completed. I believe that they may also have a financing program as well. As the project progresses, each team arrives at your home around 7:30AM and works until 4:00PM. They are all very polite and professional and treat your home as if it were their own. My wife and I actually work from home and they knew our schedule and worked around loud noises while we were on meetings or needed to have it a bit quite at times. Jim and Randy the owners popped in often to check out the progress of the job and to see if we had any questions or concerns during the entire project and they were always available to attend to our needs or concerns during the project. All the contractors cleaned up at the end of the day, so there was no trash hanging around like you see at a lot of work sites and it was all taken away each day. This was a big plus and a blessing. The project was finished on time and within our budget. All of our friends and relatives have nothing but great things to say about the quality of workmanship and the great space that they created for us. It's a great place for the grandkids as well as for family gatherings. Our Aunt and a few of our single friends asked if they could move in. We told them all that there was a long waiting list… LOL…. Well there you have it... Another fantastic job by Better Built Basements. We recommend them highly so give them a call for your next project.
