A: At Elias Construction, we specialize in providing our clients with a stress-free, organized and structured construction experience. You'll know exactly what to expect every step of the way and be able to enjoy piece of mind knowing that you'll be back in your home and enjoying your new space on the date promised. To ensure you get what you expected and at the cost anticipated, you not only need a contractor but you need the right contractor!

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 $60,000-$120,000.

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. If a more elaborate design plan is necessary, there will be minimal design fees which will be discussed at the initial appointment.
A: Typically all of your selections take place after the contract is signed. Our pricing and details are based on the information collected during the initial appointment and should be adequate for you to make your final selections while sticking to the allotted budget. 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.

  • "Elias Construction is a very professional company that strives to communicate with all aspects of the remodel project from start to finish. We had a great experience in remodeling our master bath, and small bath plus kitchen countertop. The added benefit of an interior design specialist made the selection of flooring, paint, countertop, and even accessories much less stressful. Lots of support by the staff made this remodel a great experience. Thank you to all at Elias Construction!" - Mary Ludwig

From selection of windows to paint samples. The owner Mickey is incredible with the overall project plan and he manages the subcontractors with ease.
