Deciding on which company to redo our basement was a huge decision. This decision is not something we took lightly. After researching multiple places for over a year and getting many quotes, we selected Beautiful Built Basement. We finished roughly ⅔ of our basement, with carpet and a laundry room. I read the many positive reviews so I felt confident in our selection, and they offered mid level pricing. After coming out to get an estimate, Dan (the owner) emailed us a proposal fairly quickly. We moved forward and we got an extremely detailed transparent plan. Each material was listed, and included a description and the prices. We ended up asking my husband’s father, who does construction, if everything was accurate and of high quality. Looking at the price list and total cost of every single item, including labor, secured our decision. They offer broken-down online payments which are very convenient and easy to pay through the website. We booked them for the job, which started about 4 months later. They had an opening for the summer so we were able to get squeezed in. They stated that our project would take around 3.5 weeks to complete.
My main draw to this company was that they are professional workers at all times. I was a little worried, because we have a 1.5 year old who takes naps throughout the day. My son had no issues sleeping during the time that they were here. Each morning, on time, Don and Chris would say “Hello” to him and he would “help” them set up the tarps upstairs. They are not a typical construction company. They were acutely aware of when they were walking in and out of the house and mindful of closing the basement and front door. If they had to leave a door open, they would ask each time to make sure no child, or animal could escape. If they wanted to smoke, they did that in their car or far away outside. No cigarette buds were left outside. Music was kept to a minimum, and each day the work site was cleaned up for the next day. I appreciate that because our cats basically live in the basement and making sure they could not get into anything was a priority and a safety concern. On top of cleaning each day, we would walk down stairs with them to see the progress. We were able to address any concerns or questions at that time. They welcomed us down stairs and continuously asked us to share feedback. When they were done, they would remove the tarps, and review the plan for the next day.
The precision with their work is top notch, and now our basement is something we can show off to friends and family. The hallway was half finished leading down into the basement. Unfortunately, the company that built our house did not take time or consideration with that part of the house. So Don and Chris fixed up the dents in the hallway that were undetected by us, and the rough edges of wood on the staircase. They made sure all the drop down ceiling tiles were perfect and had the same edging length. The white trim was spot on. We made some minor adjustments later on, by adding a few outlets, which were easily accommodated into their plan. Dan quickly responded to any accommodation. Having some flexibility was beneficial to the success of our basement. We wanted to complete the final painting, so we asked to have a weekend to achieve this. They were able to do some workarounds and provide us enough time to finish the painting. We wanted to add carpet to the basement, because we have children and pets. Their designer came out to help us to select from the many choices. We used the carpet swatch, placed it in the correct lighting, and looked at it in response to the painted walls.
Dan Ringer and Beautiful Basements did a fantastic job with our basement project. It was a full finish of a large, rough basement in a 96-year-old house, including a finished den, a laundry/utility space, and a separate space for a woodshop, and not only did it turn out great, but it was done in just a few short weeks. The workers were very friendly and arrived promptly every workday. Dan is very knowledgeable and knew exactly which questions to ask to make our vision a reality. Wholeheartedly recommended for anyone in the area.
I first have to say, we called Dan in January along with 2 other contractors for our basement finishing. At the time there was a contractor that we liked and and gave us a rough quote. After FOUR months the final quote came it and it was DOUBLE. Yes I said double. Needless to say this was not acceptable to us, and all trust was lost. So back to the drawing board. We contacted Dan at Beautiful Basements and explained our situation and the time crunch we were under now that 4 months was lost and we were nowhere. To my surprise Dan honored his original quote from four months previous. Even through the pandemic. This was the beginning of a beautiful partnership. Dan worked his team around to meet our deadlines. I cannot say enough stellar things about Dan and his crew. Their professionalism. The quality of work. Their inability to tell me no, haha. Anything I envisioned they made happened. I was sad to see them go. Their smiling faces and positive attitudes while working hard was so refreshing. I can't even express the joy family and friends have coming to see the finished product. This is the most impressed I have ever been with a contractor and I built a home! You will not be disappointed by Beautiful Basements!!
I had my basement recently finished by Dan and his team and we couldn’t be happier. Dan is very friendly and came out rather quick for an initial estimate. The pricing was very competitive and he even broke down the individual pricing for the material. I have not seen this with other contractors as you just get a bottom line price but this is very detailed and very helpful when reviewing pricing.
Dan’s team started on time and was dedicated to get the project done quick and without cutting corners. Don and Devin were the (2) main team members working on my basement. They were very friendly, polite and great craftsmen. They provided daily updates and were always on time. They also discussed smaller details with me to ensure it was exactly as I wanted it (for example, where to add TV mounting inside the wall). I would highly recommend Dan and his team for any projects you have.
Dan and his team were very professional and knowledgeable about the work.
The planning and estimation process was very transparent. No hidden costs or surprises. All work is done legally with a professional contractor for plumbing and electrical work.
Different options and recommendations are shared through out the project work.
Crew was very polite, respectable and professional. They made sure no unnecessary noise was created and kept the house & working area clean.
They would clean up after the work.
I will recommend Beautiful Basements for any remodeling work and especially for the basement remodeling.
