Pre-build

We make developement of your basement comfortable and stress free by laying out the process from the start.

Our transparent approach allows our clients to feel at ease as your basement undergoes development.

The first phone call

When you first contact us we will discuss your wants and needs for your new basement keeping in mind the budget you're are looking to work within.

We come to you

Our team members will come to your home and do a full review of the space to determine the perfect layout and design that works best for you. This will include scale drawings, measurements and a complete estimate.

Final meeting

Once the proposal has been accepted, we return to your home and review the entire estimate and drawings to make sure all parties are in agreement on the scope of the project and to make any necessary changes before development begins.
