Welcome to the Better Basement Company, where our devotion to extraordinary excellence in remodeling and service to our clients go hand in hand. There are many reasons people consider remodeling their basements, from a growing family, too many toys in the living room, a need for a home office, a space to entertain and watch the big game on TV or room to workout. We find that very often our clients love living where they are but have outgrown the confines of the existing space they inhabit. Adding an addition is not always an answer as property setbacks, the cost of building new and a huge increase in property taxes makes this alternative either impossible or beyond the realm of their budget.

This is where we come in. Your dark and unused basement is the footprint of your entire house and by remodeling it you will gain an extra 33% – 100% (in the case of a ranch), of livable space in your home. In addition, your property tax liability will only increase marginally, and the end result is a gorgeous coordinated space that you will be proud to show off to friends, family and neighbors. In fact, most of our clients comment that their newly remodeled basement is the nicest room in their home!

Our First Visit

The Better Basement Company takes the time to truly listen and help you determine how the space will be utilized. We carefully plan the use of your space and we are well versed in plumbing, electric, HVAC, basement dig outs to increase floor to ceiling heights, removal of lally columns to open up space where needed and waterproofing solutions. All of these issues are identified and discussed thoroughly with our homeowners on our first visit. This is the first step in planning full use of your space. We understand completely all of the current building codes and work with your town ordinances to meet all of their requirements.

At this juncture we will map out your basement, carefully noting where all of your utilities preside including your furnace, water heater, water main, electric, sewer/septic line, ceiling height and duct work.

Then we go to work designing your space so that ultimately you will see none of these utilities in your newly finished living space but will have easy access to all of them. All of our clients tell us at the end of a job that they never envisioned the final product. This process will take 1-2 hours on our first visit.

The Proposal

The next stage is the budgeting process. The Better Basement Company will provide you with a full proposal within a few days and if need be will bring in our licensed plumber, electrician HVAC specialist, water management expert or structural engineer to consult on various issues, at no expense to you. This is done to provide you with expert advice on what can be accomplished with a bit of creativity by professionals who like to get it done right the first time.

While we don’t ask homeowners what their budget is, we encourage them to freely engage their “wish list.” If the price we quote is too high for your immediate budget, The Better Basement Company will then work backwards to suggest ways that you can save money. This is a process that requires open and honest interaction to come to an affordable outcome for our homeowners. If we cannot meet your budget goals we will openly and honestly tell you that your expectations cannot be met at this time. A good example of this that has happened on many occasions is a homeowner desirous of installing a full or half bath but the cost will exceed their budget. We will design the bathroom into the floor plan and frame it for installation at a later date. Pre-planning will save our homeowner’s money down the road.

The Contract

The contract will spell out the terms of the work as per the proposal and the terms of payment. Upon signing the contract there will be a 10% deposit required to schedule the work. The second payment of 40% is required on the day the work begins (this is when all of the building materials are delivered). The third payment of 40% will be required after all of the rough-in inspections have been approved. The final payment of 10% is due at the conclusion of the “punch out” list and the homeowner is completely satisfied.

The Better Basement Company will provide the homeowner with a 3 day rescission option should you opt not to execute the project at this time.

Additional Information

All permits, riser diagrams, studding/insulation/drywall installation drawings will be submitted by The Better Basement Company. Permit fees will be made by the homeowner.

  • "You guys are great! I can't say enough about how professional your staff was from Dan & Dave when they so willingly made some last minute changes while they were framing out the basement to the Plumber with his suggestions on the bathroom sink placement. Your company lived up to every promise you made and built me a beautiful basement."

Easily the best home improvement contractor we have dealt with, your quality of work was great and your workers did everything in a timely matter. When you said it may become the most comfortable room in the house I didn’t quite believe you. But now I will have to agree with you. I have already given your card to two of my neighbors.
