From Our Basement Finishing Customers…

We approach each basement finishing project with the goal of providing each customer with a satisfying and stress-free experience, from start to finish.

Our team of basement design-build experts work closely with you through each step of your basement finishing project, providing design considerations, a project plan, project updates, and the scheduling of inspections.

Our installation teams are well-versed in their respective trades, and are licensed and fully-insured.

Our attitude and approach have earned us industry awards, and our customers continue to recommend us to family and friends. But, you don’t have to take our word for it – instead, we let our customers speak for us – look at what they are saying:

This is the second time we used The Basic Basement Co., and I can’t rave enough about their services.

The design consultant arrived on time for the estimate, talked with us about options. We originally planned to extend an existing window for an egress window – the design consultant walked around our house and suggested a different location which would allow for a larger window and more light into the basement. Options were itemized, and we were able to select items that fit our needs and budget.

The project manager was AMAZING. All of our inquiries are answered within hours, and we were kept in the loop on our project at all times. The installation team worked hard to complete each step quickly and left the space clean and neat every day.

We are very happy with the outcome, and will recommend them without hesitation.

Yun M. – Basking Ridge, NJ 11/21/15

Let me start by saying I was dreading finishing my basement – I actually considered moving to avoid it – but, we desperately needed more space.

I had met with numerous contractors before contacting The Basic Basement Co. Their design consultant came to our home, went over our options, and helped me decide the best use for our space. I was so happy to have someone who could envision what our basement could look like, because I’m not great at it. We decided that we wanted to use The Basic Basement Co. right away.

The entire process went smoothly. Every person – from the electrician to the carpenter – was on time, respectful of our space, and left the basement clean every day. The project manager was amazing – she answered every question I had and was so responsive – she really made the entire process seamless and so easy for me.

I would highly recommend using this company. Not only do they take care of everything – from scheduling the workers through inspections – but the people are so helpful. I have a beautifully finished basement and a new bathroom. I really could not be happier.

Jenny D. – Scotch Plains, NJ 10/31/15

We had a great experience with The Basic Basement Co. My wife and I were clueless about how to design the basement and estimate costs. Two other independent contractors did little to help us think through the best design for our space, and quoted us costs of $25,000 – $30,000!

We found The Basic Basement Co. through a Val-Pak coupon we received in the mail. Their design consultant gave us great insights into how we should consider creating storage space as well as living space and created a layout that we really liked. They have estimating down to a science…their quoted price includes a set number of lights, doors, and outlets; when we wanted to add a French door and a spindled railing for the stairs, they were very flexible, and able to show us how we could adjust the cost by adding or subtracting certain aspects to keep the price within our range, but have the things we also wanted most. And their quoted price was far below anyone else!

Their work crews were punctual and attentive. The quality of their work was excellent, and they very flexible when we decided to suspend the basement project for several weeks as we added in a supplemental air conditioning system that we didn’t originally plan for.

We were extremely happy with the experience, and hope to use them again for our powder room and kitchen!

Charles R. – Mount Laurel, NJ 10/11/15

We had a fantastic experience with The Basic Basement Co. As soon as we contacted the company, I was called and an appointment was made. The design consultant came out at a convenient time and measured and explained everything to me. He sent a quote right away and provided a layout. The project managers kept us informed and took care of all the details – my permit was approved by the township in a few weeks! They said the permit forms, completed by The Basic Basement Co., were done properly and thoroughly. All of the trades – drywaller/carpenter/electrician – were professional and FAST! When it was time for the final inspection, the inspector said that this company is top notch and that their work is excellent.

Thank you – I would definitely recommend this company.

Steven K. – Merchantville, NJ 10/10/15

This was my first home remodeling experience, and I was somewhat terrified based on stories from friends.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience with The Basic Bathroom Co. – the final product was beautiful, there were no unexpected costs, workers were timely and courteous, and the overall budget was at least a few thousand dollars less than any other offer.

Having a project manager was a huge help. I thought I could pull this together myself, but once the project was started, I quickly realized I had no clue what I was doing and the project manager was a huge help. My project manager was super-responsive and happy to answer all of my questions without ever getting irritated. Everyone I spoke with at The Basic Bathroom Co. was really pleasant. If you are not a “pro” when it comes to home remodeling, I highly suggest using The Basic Bathroom Co. as they really hold your hand and walk you through everything, and don’t take advantage of your budget.

Marietta K. – Newtown, PA 10/5/15

The entire experience went well, starting with the original sales call through final inspections. Everything contained in the contract was provided without any issues, and it was extremely pleasant dealing with their office staff.

We were told it would take about one month and they were dead on. The project started on July 20th and concluded on August 22nd. All of the materials were delivered exactly when I was told they would be, and all of the workers showed up on time when expected.

The workers were polite, neat, and very caring about the quality of their work. I was asked for input along the way, and was accommodated when choices needed to be made, some clearly requiring more effort than others, and that never became an issue.

I was extremely impressed to see my entire basement framed in one day. Three installers worked non-stop, and did not leave until finished and the area was clean. Days later, the electrician arrived and spent one day roughing the electric. We passed inspections a few days later. Then the sheet rockers came, and by the time I came home from work, the entire basement was done. Two days later, spacklers arrived and spent the day spackling, which just needed a light sanding a few days later. The electrician spent a day connecting everything, and a few days later carpenters came to install molding and doors. On the last day, the project manager completed one or two small items. The project manager was involved at various stages throughout the process, and helped to make it a good experience. It was clear that this company wanted to please their customers and each of the workers demonstrated this.

The office team arranged for all inspectors to show up on the same morning, and we passed without any problems. Scheduling throughout the project was discussed, and they were flexible.

I honestly had a stress-free experience with The Basic Basement Co. and will highly recommend them. I have already told many of my friends about my experience, and am already enjoying my new living space.

Tom H. – Princeton Junction, NJ 9/17/15

The Basic Basement Co. did an awesome job on my basement – and completed the project in only 4 weeks!

They were very professional and well versed in their trades. The service was prompt and customer service was great. They are a trustworthy company for getting your basement finished. Their suggestions were very helpful and the price was reasonable.

I highly recommend them!

Dhanavanth V. – Trenton, NJ 9/17/15

The whole process was easy and seamless – of course we had gotten estimates from others, but many other companies were unreliable (they did not show up for estimates) or overpriced (it almost seemed like they were pulling numbers out of the air). We met with The Basic Basement Co., and felt very comfortable with after the first contact.

Our design consultant went over in detail what was included in their basic package and additional options (bathroom, wet bar, etc.). We were just interested in additional living space, so the basic package was fine for us. We did have a sub-panel added (their price was less than hiring our own electrician). So, we signed the contract and scheduled the project.

Every appointment was on time, and we got a detailed walk-through after every step was complete. The crews were polite and cleaned up at the end of each day. They even hauled away their own garbage.

Another great service was that they scheduled all of the inspections with my town – the inspectors also raved about their work.

From the crews, to the salesman, to the office team – it was a great experience.

David M. – Dayton, NJ 9/4/15

The Basic Basement Co. finished my basement – approximately 1,100 square feet. The job included the creation of three distinct spaces – an office, gym, and media area – and a full bath. I found the quality of work to be very good. I recommend The Basic Basement Co. as a basement finishing company.

Alan J. – Crosswicks, NJ 7/7/15

Todd came over, measured, and provided information. He wasn’t pushy and just gave me the facts. After I contacted him again to let him know I wanted to go forward, he sent me a very clearly written, detailed proposal. He gave me a checklist of everything that would happen and a timeframe for each.

Gail was my coordinator for all phases. She was so helpful and friendly! I always knew what to expect from start to finish. The guys that came over to do the work were professional and skilled. They worked quickly and cleaned up after each job. I felt relaxed with each group in my home.

I had framers, electricians, drywall installers, and a carpenter for doors and trim. They did a great job. I opted to save a little money and do the paint and flooring myself. The schedule ran smoothly and I had the ability to adjust things as needed.

I’m so happy with the finished product. I stayed within my budget. I got quotes from other companies that just wanted to push upgrades and design fees on me. All I wanted was a basic finish so my kids could have a place to hang out. I’m so glad I went with these guys. I highly recommend them!

Cliff and Maureen B. – Marlton, NJ 4/18/15

We’ve just had a wonderful experience with The Basic Basement Co.! We paid just half the price of all other estimates for more than double re-activity – really!! From Jordan, the salesman – to Gail and Bob, the Project Managers – to the technicians – they were all very professional! And, it took them far less than 2 months to finish our 1,000 sq. ft. “storage area basement”, so they were far ahead of schedule!

They were always very clean after each job (framing, electrical, etc.) and very responsive when it came to complying with all of the codes of our very demanding township (here in West Windsor, NJ). We will definitely call them for remodeling our master bathroom, and wish they had a “Basic Patio Co.” to build our new patio.

Phil C. – Princeton Junction, NJ 4/10/15

I want to thank all of you for doing such an amazing job and finishing our basement on time.

Your crew was amazing and they did quality work.

Thank you for all your help! It was a very nice experience working with The Basic Basement Co. and I am looking forward to renovating my kitchen soon with your company! I already gave a referral to my friend.


Sheetal D. – Princeton, NJ 3/16/15

You only know the quality of the company you are dealing with when there are bumps in the road and the experience you go through in getting the issues resolved.

In that respect you guys were rock stars! Everyone we interacted with – from the framers to the plumbers to the electricians, and not to mention Rick (who made two impromptu visits) and Curtis – were awesome to deal with. Thoroughly professional. Extremely polite and courteous.

Finally, Gail thanks for your many efforts – from pulling in the start date to fit in with our vacation plans and working around our many scheduling issues.

We wish you, the whole team, and The Basic Basement Co. lots of success in the future.

Ronish and Vanda P. – Manalapan, NJ 2/16/15

Jaya and I were recommended by our family friends to The Basic Basement Co., and since we signed the contract with them, it was an amazing experience.

It was seamless, smooth, and clean work done by them and everything was as we expected. The team, starting from project manager (Gail) to every other team member – are so kind, and we specially would like to thank Gail for listening to our requests and getting things done on, or before, time.

We certainly look forward to working with the entire team again for our future projects and will recommend them to our friends.

Sanjay and Jaya R. – East Windsor, NJ 2/14/15

The Basic Basement Co. just completed my unfinished basement. I couldn’t be happier with the results.

The costs were reasonable and the results exceptional. Even though you lose use of your basement during construction, they make it as pain-free as possible. I just left them a key to my house & they did their thing. Everyone from The Basic Basement Co. was highly professional. The design consultant was an expert in schematics & designing the basement. The framing guys were experts in framing. The dry wall guys were experts in dry wall, etc.

Aaron and Mindy S. – East Windsor, NJ 2/12/15

Our basement has just been finished, and we are thrilled with the final result! Initially, I was skeptical about using The Basic Basement Co., suspecting there would be many hidden costs and unforeseen expenses. I had sought other estimates and they came in much higher than what I was quoted from The Basic Basement Co. I am happy to report we paid exactly the price we were initially quoted and the company was extremely upfront about everything.

Every crew member that worked on our project was polite, informative and considerate. Our project manager was wonderful and accommodating on all levels. Every inspector who came out to our home commented on the high quality of work that was done. Needless to say, I highly recommend using The Basic Basement Co. You will not be disappointed!


Jackie B. – Point Pleasant, NJ 2/11/15

I just wanted to let you know that the electrician was very helpful and professional, and I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.

Thank you for your help.

Gary S. – West Orange, NJ 1/10/15

The Basic Basement Co. was wonderful to work with! They completed the job, with great quality, within the time promised with absolutely no surprises.

What’s more – they also worked with us to paint and did a great job.

Sujeet S. – West Windsor, NJ 12/30/14

In early October, I began a search for a company to finish my basement. At the recommendation of a friend and after interviewing several companies, I decided on The Basic Basement Co. based in Manalapan, NJ. As it turned out, it was an excellent decision.

This company knows how to do a basement, and do it right. Getting permits and approvals from the township can be a challenging task but the project coordinator took care of all the details. The workman that came to do the framing, dry wall, electrical, carpentry and painting were all excellent professionals and did their job to perfection. They were on time, focused on getting their job done in a top quality manner, and gave me the feeling that they were treating my house as if they were taking care of their own. Top quality professionals – every one of them.

The Basic Basement Co. is the type of company you want taking care of your home.

Bob B. – Shrewsbury, NJ 12/27/14

The project went extremely well. The timeline was on schedule, estimates on time, and expense matched expectations. All teams were professional and courteous and left the space clean and functional. The final product exceeded our expectations!

Rodney H. – Hackettstown, NJ 11/6/14

We are very happy with the quality of work done by The Basic Basement Co. I selected them on the basis of Angie’s List reviews. The crew always arrived on time. The project completed exactly as planned. Inspection was a breeze. We got a great finished basement within the time and budget we had planned. After 4 months, everything still looks and feels great.

Ashesh C. – Robbinsville, NJ 11/6/14

We have been very impressed by the quality of service we received from The Basic Basement Co. We engaged with them to finish our basement. We had a tight timeline – we wanted to get it completed before school re-opened. We were nervous about the whole process since there are a lot of parts and we were also required to get a permit.

The Basic Basement Co. guided us step-by-step through the process. They set the right expectations and followed the plan to utmost satisfaction. The contractors were punctual and spent long hours to get the work done with causing the least disturbance to us. If we ever need to finish our basement again, this is the company we would go with. We highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. for anybody’s basement job.

Current happy owners of a cheerful basement,

Sumit and Sneha S. – Bridgewater, NJ 10/28/14

It was nice working with you and your crew. Everyone has done their job professionally. I would like to thank you and your team for hearing all my requests and finishing our basement nicely.

I will look forward to work with you for any future home improvements.


Manoop T. – Somerset, NJ 10/12/14

Please extend my thanks to all members of your team who did the work. Everybody was so professional. The work looks great.

I started referring my friends to your company. Thank you for making communication easy.


Ayman S. – Collegeville, PA 10/3/14

Just wanted to mention that, your crew has been very professional so far and we really appreciate the quality of the work. Good work to yourself and your team.

Krishna J. – Morris Plains, NJ 9/17/14

Thank you so much for everything. I can honestly recommend you and your company for anyone who wishes to finish a basement.

The work was great. The customer service was exceptional. Having over a decade of experience working for five star hotels, and writing the actual standards to be exercised, I greatly appreciate having dealt with you, and my husband with your teams. All of you have been amazing. I appreciate the flexibility. Not once did you not try to make it work on our terms! With timing so restricted for our super busy family – all I can say is —Wow!!

And again, thank you!!

Lizzie F. – Hazlet, NJ 8/2/14

Jerry and Lisa P. – Bridgewater, NJ 5/29/14

The Basic Basement Co. is what anyone would dream of having – excellent, professional teams and great management to provide care and consideration, and great workmanship and materials as per industry code. This was a stress-free experience with no hidden costs or delays, and best of all, they have the most pleasant, caring, and professional office manager. She will respond to all your needs and follow up with your town for the permits. With her knowledge and long experience in all phases of construction, she was a great help.

We are very pleased with The Basic Basement Co., and thank you all for making our basement more than what we expected.

Gamal E. – Freehold Twp., NJ 5/29/14

The Basic Basement Co. did a wonderful job at every step of the way for our basement. All the installers were very professional, punctual, courteous, and did an excellent job. They knew what was needed to pass the inspections and ensured that they did a top-notch job. All of the work was scheduled, and inspections completed, in a timely manner. We are very happy with our basement and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Robert and Jenny P. – Basking Ridge, NJ 5/29/14

It was a pleasure doing business with a company of highly skilled craftsman within their trades. I must say after all is done, Gail performed a great job quarterbacking the team to efficiency and success. Dan did a great job setting expectations up front with the process.

All the Best!

Rafael and Sonia D. – Delran, NJ 5/21/14

We loved having them redo our basement! They took an old dingy space and added a complete bathroom with shower, egress window and finished basement. Gail was awesome with communication and the project manager was wonderful also. We would recommend them to anyone.

Virginia and Ryan S. – Chalfont, PA 5/5/14

I want to thank The Basic Basement Co. and their crews for great job on finishing my basement. They are very professional and know their job very well. They always showed up on time and cleaned everything after finishing their tasks. They are very helpful and answered all our questions. The crews are very hard working and great on their work. They finished my basement in a very timely manner and we got all town approvals without any issue. Gail is very helpful and she is the best.

The final basement came exceptionally good. I will recommend to all my friends if they are looking for any remodeling in their house.

Nishi and Vishakha S. – Bridgewater, NJ 5/2/14

Chris and I both want to express what a pleasure it was to deal with you. From start to finish, everyone that came to our house was very skilled, efficient and nice. And, you were so flexible in getting someone to the house when we needed even small, minor tweaks.

You did a beautiful job transforming our drab, terrible basement into a fabulous living space! We can’t wait to hang out down there! Thank you!

All the best,

Margaret and Chris J. – Princeton, NJ 5/1/14

We would like to thank you and The Basic Basement Co. crews for such a wonderful job on finishing our basement. The crews were always on time and finished each task as planned.

Best contractor ever!! I highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. From the free initial consult through every phase of the project, the craftsmanship, competence, and professionalism of the entire staff and crew far exceeded my expectations. They did everything I asked… and then some. Gail handled scheduling seamlessly, Rick provided expert consult and oversight, and Dan clearly quoted prices and provided excellent customer service.

Thank you, The Basic Basement Co.!!

Dave L. – North Wales, PA 3/13/14

We made the right decision to get the services of The Basic Basement Co. From start to finish, the process was a breeze. Dominick delivered as promised – he was very accommodating with our concerns and requests. Gail is an exceptional project manager – she was with us every step of the way, and responded to every question. The workers were very respectful, competent, and skilled, and cleaned up at the end of the day.

Thank you for the amazing basement. We now have an additional space to relax. We highly recommend your company.

James & Freda M. – Kendall Park, NJ 3/13/14

We love the new basement. It has been such a breeze working with you. I cannot imagine the stress of running after different people to get each part of this job done.

Everyone was prompt, courteous and your coordination made life so much easier. I have already recommended The Basic Basement Co. to my neighbors.


Prarthana and Santosh G. – Princeton, NJ 3/3/14

Our experience with The Basic Basement Co. was excellent. With having two growing boys in our home, it was paramount that we finish our basement. We interviewed several contractors who offered to give us “a basic basement” at “not so basic” prices. One day while on my way to work, I was stopped at a traffic light next to a truck that advertised an 800 square foot basement for $9,999. Being very skeptical (because of our interviews of previous contractors) we called The Basic Basement Co. and set up an interview.

The salesperson arrived on time (big plus) and went over in detail The Basic Basement Co.’s philosophy and what we could expect. We signed the contract, obtained the necessary township permits (which The Basic Basement Co. assisted us in getting) and we were on our way. Gail kept us appraised at every step of the process (which crew was coming, inspectors, etc.) and most importantly, if we weren’t happy with something, we voiced our concern and The Basic Basement Co. immediately catered to our wishes. We would highly recommend hiring The Basic Basement Co.

Ryan & Danielle S. – Morrisville, PA 2/17/14

My husband and I are extremely happy that we hired The Basic Basement Co. and The Basic Bathroom Co. to finish our basement and remodel our bathroom. It was a very wise decision. We told them what we needed, they put everything in writing, and things were done as specified in the contract and we didn’t have to worry about anything.

The people who came to do the work were very good. They would finish the days’ work and clean the place before they left – that was really something. They worked around our schedule, accommodated all our requests (they even worked on Saturdays for us) and did a great job.

Our special thanks to Gail who patiently answered all of our questions, calls, and requests and scheduled all work and inspections around our schedule. We are really very happy to have hired them and are extremely happy with their work.


Hari and Ramya S. – Fords, NJ 2/5/14

The Basic Basement Co. was highly recommended by several neighbors, and with our basement now completed, we too would absolutely recommend them. The entire project was well coordinated and flawless.

Andrea & Marc B. – Monmouth Junction, NJ 2/4/14

Just a note to thank you for the wonderful outcome of our new basement. We are very happy and feel that it has added a new attraction in our home. The workmanship is top-of-the-line. We also appreciated the responsiveness of all the crews that arrived and completed their work, always on time and as promised. A special thanks to Gail who coordinated the project from start to finish and was a pleasure to deal with. If you want your basement finished in a timely fashion with quality workmanship at a very reasonable price, The Basic Basement Co. should be your contractor.

Dennis and Sarah D. – New Hope, PA 2/2/14

With the carpet installation, we could officially call our basement – oops, our new lower level – complete! Our sincere thanks to you and your team. Please pass on our “Thank you” message to the framing, electrical, plumbing, and finishing teams! The team has done a fabulous job and we are really impressed with the final outcome. Wish you a very happy new year 2014.


Madhan & Anith C. – North Brunswick, NJ 12/31/13

Thank you for all of your assistance and attention to detail throughout the project. You certainly made it easier than I had imagined it would be. I enjoyed the interaction and the level of responsiveness by you and The Basic Basement Co. team. My wife and I are very pleased with the work.

Enjoy the holiday!

Warm regards,

Kerry & Carrie B. – Mount Laurel, NJ 12/24/13

I’d like to say what a great experience this has been. You and the rest of The Basic Basement Co. team that have been a part of this project have been professional and I will be referring you to my friends and family.

Thank you,

Doug H. – Jackson, NJ 12/24/13

Just wanted to say thanks for everything! We are very happy with, and proud of our new basement. We really appreciate all your assistance to help us through the process.

Beth and Barry T. – Woodlawn, NJ 12/20/13

We are thrilled with our beautiful basement! All workers showed up at the appointed time and did their jobs beautifully. Gail orchestrated the entire process making sure the work was completed in a timely manner. I highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. to anyone planning to finish their basement.

Thank you!

Enid and Bill P. – Monmouth Junction, NJ 12/4/13

Getting your basement done is very exciting, but at the same time a head ache, when I was trying to finalize a contractor. I was little skeptical to choose The Basic Basement Co. because I want it to be affordable as well as high quality and for some reason thought they only do a basic job.

My expectations were exceeded and I was extremely satisfied with their quality, professionalism, and project management. I don’t want to write a story but I will say there were a couple of occasions where the team was truly professional and fantastic. I would highly recommend them if you want your basement done hassle free.


Krishna and Santha S. – Princeton, NJ 11/22/13

I can tell you we’re really happy with the finished product. We’re looking forward to using this new space soon and now it’s just a matter of getting the furniture. It’s quite a transformation and the attached pictures can speak to it better than I can.

I want to thank you for how well you coordinated the job because you adjusted your team to our schedules always asap. Please also extend my thanks to all the crew members who came over and did their part.


Gerardo and Bibiana C. – Branchburg, NJ 11/22/13

We thought everything was smooth and worked out very well.

Professional, timely, and great quality.

Igal and Melissa D. – Howell, NJ 11/14/13

You guys did a great job and were beyond professional. If I ever finish another basement I will call you first. I will definitely refer you to friends.


Gary B. – Freehold, NJ 11/6/13

This is Nels M. from Netcong, NJ. I completed the Angie’s List review. I gave you a big shout out as you really earned it. I hope you enjoy your job as it shows. Thank you for all the attention and efforts. My wife and I have been busy painting. The floor is down and it is really a great space. I will send pictures once the painting is complete.

Nels and Yosi M. – Netcong, NJ 11/4/13

I would like to thank you and your crew for doing an excellent job on completing our basement.

Your guys were flexible to adhere to my schedule and your crew did an excellent job.

Special thanks to Dan for his visits, plan and offering a good deal. Special thanks to your project manager Rick for managing all the tasks on a timely manner with good quality work.

Special thanks to you and Cathy for coordinating and scheduling the tasks to fit my schedule.

Thanks again to your crew.

Prakash R. – Princeton, NJ 11/4/13

We could not be more impressed with The Basic Basement Co. based on our experience. Every member of the company we talked to or that came to our house was professional, on time and did excellent work. And, they did everything really quickly and the quality is fantastic!!! Our basement turned out better than we expected and we couldn’t be happier!

Barb and Jose M. – Howell, NJ 10/31/13

I couldn’t be happier with the result, crews, and project management. Your business model and execution are excellent. There is no question that I would not only recommend The Basic Basement Co., but tell friends that they would be wasting time and money going anywhere else.


Mike Z. – Mt. Laurel, NJ 10/31/13

I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am of your team. The framing team set up the foundation for a wonderful basement. They demonstrated a great attitude and disposition as well as skill in their job. All of these traits were reflected on a daily basis.

Thank you, The Basic Basement Co., for sending the framing crew with their knowledge and skills.

Adriana S. – Westfield, NJ 10/21/13

We want to thank The Basic Basement Co. and their crew for the excellent job done in our basement. Your crew was excellent. They worked with dedication, professionalism and what is most important, with honesty. Also, they were willing to go the extra mile in order to provide us with the satisfaction and guarantee of a nice job. Your office staff, Gail and Kathy, were always there when needed and answered immediately to any issues or concerns. There is no doubt that we are going to spend a good amount of time in our new living space.

Thank you again, it was a real pleasure to have you as our contractors for finishing our basement!

Marcos and Lucy Q. – Manalapan, NJ 10/12/13

As you thought, and us as well, we had ZERO issues with the inspections today. Both fire and electrical passed inspection and building did as well. Both inspectors knew the job was done by professionals.

We appreciated working with you and your staff, which makes up “The Basic Basement Co./Totally Basements”. We are extremely happy with ALL aspects of The Basic Basement Co.

Scott E. – Millville, NJ 9/19/13

Bryan was here to address the punch list and has completed the work. You have been such a pleasure to work with in ensuring that the process was smooth and issues addressed in a timely manner. Thank you for changing out the door hardware when you didn’t have to since you were correct in that the gold was listed within the contract – we truly appreciated it.

Again, warm regards to you and The Basic Basement Co.’s team for a job well done.

We can’t thank you enough for your expertise and great work in helping us with our basement. Your fair and uncomplicated prices were wonderful and we have told all our neighbors, friends, and family about your wonderful company.

Many customers usually don’t write letters of compliment or praise, but are more likely to write a letter of complaints. We felt we just had to let your company know that we’re so very pleased with your work in the new addition to our home. Your company is astounding in the quality of workmanship they provide and your office staff was courteous no matter how many times we called.

We can’t thank you enough and I think you are aware of our complete trust and sincerity in respecting your work and continuous care of us even after the job was done.

Beth & Jeff M. – Harrington Park, NJ 4/22/13

Bryan and I highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. for your basement finishing needs. They provide excellent work at a great price, and were in touch throughout the entire construction process to ensure all our needs were met. The project and construction teams were very professional and flexible with our schedules. The working crew was so clean and made every effort to be undisruptive to the rest of the house. The Basic Basement Co. made it extremely easy from start to finish to get the project done. We are extremely satisfied and would recommend them to our family and friends. We even recommended them to our township inspector, who was highly impressed with the workmanship.

The finished basement is even better than expected—our family is enjoying our newly added living space. Thank you!

Again, we had a wonderful experience with the men you sent to do the carpentry and electrical work. I was telling Justin, (electrician) what an unbelievably positive experience this has been with you guys. You hear such nightmares that friends have endured and are just waiting for the “here we go” moment, but I know at this point we are not going to have any with your company. It has been nothing but considerate, prompt, hard-working, honest men treating our home, our children and our elderly dog with nothing but the greatest care and you working behind the scenes to expertly keep progress on track. Have a great weekend!

Cindy & Brian B. – Toms River, NJ 2/23/13

The Basic Basement Co. - Testimonials

I would like to take a moment & express how amazing The Basic Basement Co. has been. As a business owner myself, I expect everything to be as perfect as possible. The Basic Basement Co. not only offered the best price but was professional, punctual, & clean. Gail & Kathy in the office were always so kind & courteous. When they gave you a date or time with material and/or workers being there; it was exact. Every crew that came in cleaned up after themselves every day until the project was complete. No coffee cups or water bottles laying around! Swept or vacuumed every day. Dominick, one of the owners was always there if we needed anything. My wife likes things a certain way & Dominick catered to her every need. Even when speaking to the town & inspectors about the permits & overall process had nothing but good things to say about The Basic Basement Co.! This speaks volumes about an organization when the town endorses them. I will recommend all my friends, family, & even my customer base to The Basic Basement Co.! Thanks so much, my wife & I love our new living space. Keep up the great work!

Just a note to say how much we are enjoying the new basement. One side of the basement has a TV and an IKEA coach. That is where my son plays video games and where I exercise. The other side is the “upscale” area with a leather coach, reading chair, good speakers and a custom wall unit. That is where I read while listening to Sinatra, etc. And in a small section we have a card table where my wife and her friends play. Thanks again for the great work. It is truly a place of solitude that our whole family enjoys.

Everything looks great. We have started painting and just replaced the rear steps; the new oak stairway for the main steps is on order, and it looks like we will be completed, at least the main area, by the holidays! All of your guys did a great job. As all big jobs go, there are a few very minor glitches, mostly cleaning up the bricks and floor from globs of plaster, but all being said, for the price we paid you guys should get an A+.

Please feel free to use us as a reference; we have already recommended you guys to a few family members.

Best regards,
