A: There is no easy answer to that question. Every basement is unique. The cost to finish your basement will be based on the rooms needed and the amenities you desire. A basement with a wet bar, fireplace and maple trim will have a different cost than one that does not have those features. The majority of our lower level finishes range from $40,000-$100,000.

A: Upon receiving a quote from a competitor, review it in detail! Often we find our competitors’ quotes to be vague and difficult to compare. If you’re unsure of a competitor’s bid and/or believe another contractor is less expensive while providing the same scope of work, service and materials, we will gladly take the time to review it with you in detail.
A: We do! After an initial appointment where we discuss your vision for the project, we will get to work on drawing up basic floor plans and preparing a detailed scope of work, which helps us formulate an accurate quote on your project.

Our suppliers and subcontractors will be notified and at the ready after the contract is signed to ensure you have the most effective shopping process possible.
