Brad C. – Bridgewater, NJ 5/23/23
I do want to give a shout out to The Basic Basement Co. for their superb work in refinishing our basement. They were professional, prompt and the work was first-rate. I could not be more pleased.
Doug F. – Clarksboro, NJ 5/1/23
We are so happy we went with The Basic Basement Co. to finish our basement. One of the best decisions and investments we could have made in our home! Everyone from the painters to electricians to the drywall installers were professional, on time and tidy. Every step of the way our floors were covered and everything was cleaned up by the end of the day. One of the best parts of the whole process was having the pleasure of working with the production manager. She kept us informed by providing detailed emails of our schedule for the week and anything required of us. Our basement is now one of our family’s favorite places to hang out. Cannot recommend The Basic Companies enough when it comes to finishing your basement.
Victoria and Kevin T. – Springfield, NJ 3/29/23
We had a fantastic experience with The Basic Basement Co.! The communication was always quick whether it was the scheduler or the Project Manager. The crews that showed up were always on time, worked hard and were always respectful. I have nothing but great things to say about this experience and their work.
Kyle and Allison J. – Yardley, PA 3/23/23
Work went really well. Appreciated having a project manager on site before framing started to confirm the layout I wanted. Very professional. Each crew that came in was respectful of my house and nice to interact with. We made a few changes along the way that they were accommodating of, like deciding to replace the drywall in the stairwell and add solid core instead of hollow core doors. We had several township inspections along the way and the inspectors were all impressed. He’d seen a lot of the work from this company and referred to them as “a well oiled machine”. I agree. Highly recommend!
Brian O. – Hamilton, NJ 3/22/23
Had our basement remodeled and it turned our great. Appreciated having a project manager walk me thru everything in the beginning and go over the layout before framing started. It’s hard to find a contractor that is respectful, communicates well, is on time, and does quality work. These guys nailed it.
Brian O. – Hamilton, NJ 3/17/23
I am so happy with how our basement turned out. We had a small, partial basement completely unfinished, was just disgusting. It’s now a bright, beautiful playroom for our children. The crew did an amazing job. The production manager is phenomenal. Would use them again and again. Very happy! Was worth every penny! Thank you!!!
Nicole C. – Freehold, NJ 3/10/23
Highly recommend them! They did an outstanding job for our basement project both in quality and budget. The project manager and production manager were very professional and were very responsive throughout the project. Very happy for how our project turned out while remaining within the budget. Thank you team!
Nivedhitha A. – Warren, NJ 2/26/23
We just had our basement finished by The Basic Basement Co. and would highly recommend them to anyone. This was our first experience with a project of this scale, and it went so smoothly. Our experience from start to finish was very positive. There was clear communication, they were responsive to our needs and questions, they took any issues seriously, and when there was a need to reschedule a crew due to unforeseen illness they barely missed a beat and our project still got done on time. The finished basement is beautiful and provides more space for my family. We will definitely be going back to The Basic Basement Co. with any future home remodeling needs!!
Sarah M. – Lawrenceville, NJ 2/23/23
After the installation of my French drain/sump pump, we hired The Basic Basement Co. to finish one side of our basement. All portions of the project went smooth and rather quickly. (Started the end of October/finished middle of February). The only delay was the Christmas holiday/New Year’s weeks off and my personal 2 week vacation. Thanks to my sales rep, coordinator, project manager, and everyone else from the electricians to the painters for such a wonderful transformation.
Bryant C. – Roselle, NJ 2/20/23
The Basic Basement Co. did a great job with my basement finishing project. Their customer service, project communication and coordination was very good. The entire team – from salesperson, on-site project manager, back office project coordinator, and subcontractors – were very professional and experienced.
Anil D. – Scotch Plains, NJ 2/6/23
Completely satisfied with The Basic Basement Co. from start to finish. They were very clear on what the scope of the work would be within their estimate and the timeframe in which they would complete it. Each crew that came on site was professional and diligent in completing their portion of the work. Our project manager/coordinators were particularly helpful in the permitting and scheduling process and seeing that the work was completed to our satisfaction.
Robert M. – Wall Township, NJ 1/8/23
From the beginning, The Basic Basement Co. was everything we could have asked for in a contractor. Our project manager and the office manager were professional, responsive, and transparent at every point in the process. We had a completely unfinished 1000 square feet concrete basement that has been transformed into 800 square feet of livable and enjoyable space. The team listened to our requests and wishes, and made everything come true for us. We highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. to those looking to enhance their home. This is one of the best decisions we’ve made in our house, and we can’t wait to make memories in our new basement!
Susan S. – Lake Hiawatha, NJ 1/2/23
It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your team. Every different trade that came into my house were polite and professional. You were tremendous communicating with me on every delivery and scheduling of work to be done. All trades were here on time and treated my wife and I like family. I haven’t stop talking about your company to my family and friends. And I can not forget to mention the project manager. He is an awesome man and I felt like I knew him forever. He is an asset to your company just like you. Please forward this on to the project manager and the owner.
Robert and Karen M. – Paramus, NJ 12/14/22
We had our basement finished by The Basic Basement Co. and we could not be happier and had an overall very pleasant experience with them. They are knowledgeable and efficient. They handled all matters with scheduling, permits, and inspections and just made something that could be a potentially stressful into a really easy experience. The production and project managers were both very responsive and easy going to work with. Highly recommend and would love to work with them again for future projects.
Richard W. – Edison, NJ 11/1/22
Extremely satisfied with the work completed by The Basic Basement Co.! From start to the finish, our project manager did a fantastic job keeping us informed regarding next steps and the timeline for each stage of the project. She is very quick to respond to any questions or concerns and I felt very comfortable with her as my point of contact. Every crew for each part of the project was courteous, professional, and respectful of my home. The entire process was flawless and The Basic Basement Co. did a great job making my vision a reality. My now finished basement exceeded my expectations and I can’t wait to spend time in my new space. Thank you and the team for everything!
Drew H. – Berlin, NJ 10/14/22
We had all three inspectors come, and we are all done! I let the project manager know that all three commented on what a nice job they did. The electric inspector commented on how beautiful the basement was and that the electric was done so well, it made his job “a piece of cake.” I wanted to add the design consultant in this email because from that first meeting with him, all the way through, this has been fantastic service. The basement is beautiful and it is going to be life-changing having that additional space in our house. The production manager was so organized and responsive, and I really appreciate everything they have done.
Jillian & Marcus T. – Mantua, NJ 10/5/22
After a number of estimates we decided to use The Basic Basement Co. We were extremely happy with the completion of the project, the forecasted date of completion, and the communication from the office during construction. The production manager was excellent throughout the process and she emailed us to let us know the next steps, what was to be completed, and if we needed to do anything. The project manager was great and addressed all of our needs and concerns. We have recommended The Basic Basement Co. to friends and family. Everyone who has seen our basement is impressed with the job that was completed. I would not hesitate to hire The Basic Basement Co. for future projects.
James A. – Freehold, NJ 9/16/22
We live in Central NJ and wanted our 1960 basement finished so our kids had a large place to play. We got estimates from a few companies but we liked this company the best! The whole process was easy and straight forward. (They also offer water proofing but we already had another company lined up prior). After the blue prints and permits are completed and paid, construction starts. All supplies are delivered the day prior. From what I remember, our project was broken up into the following construction parts: 1) framing, 2) rough electrical, 3) insulation, 4) drywall, 5) spackling, 6) sanding, 7) final electrical, 8) doors & molding, 9) flooring. There were inspections in-between from your township and the company. The workers and project managers were great, knowledgeable, and friendly. There is clear communication throughout the project and any issues or concerns you have are immediately addressed. We had the kids and dog at home on all the project days with no issues. There were no “surprise” issues that required us to spend more money. The cost of the entire project is upfront. They do offer upgrades such as nicer molding, mold resistant drywall, nicer quality wood for the stairs (we had the stairs replaced too), and more. We are very happy with their work and love our basement. I highly recommend them!
Vincent B. – Monroe, NJ 9/3/22
We had wonderful experience with this company building my new basement. They are very accommodating with client requirements and schedules. I would definitely recommend them for any future projects.
Ganesh K. – Avondale, PA 8/31/22
This was the best experience I’ve had with a contractor by far. In the past 12 years since I’ve owned my home I have had dozens of contractors come through for estimates and work for various upgrades and projects in the house.
Each step of the process was smooth and efficient with surprisingly no headaches or unforeseen issues. Each crew that came in specialized in their part of the process whether it be drywall, painting or electrical and all treated my home with respect as some contractors can be very messy. I will be recommending The Basic Basement Co. to all of my family and friends.
Charles S. – Lansdale, PA 7/22/22
We just used The Basic Basement Co. for our second basement (we moved). Same amazing experience from the sales process to construction. They deliver everything they say they will, come when they say they will, AND finish on budget. If there are any concerns – don’t worry, the production manager will address them and get them fixed. Also – they know basements so well – they have the best solutions.
Erin A. – Pennington, NJ 7/5/22
Wow! Unbelievable company. I could not be happier with The Basic Basement Co. Every crew was on time, professional, and friendly. Every day they cleaned up and took any trash out. They walked me through each day and the final product. The production manager and her team were tremendous! She was so detailed with every step and made what could be a tense project…stress free for me from start to finish. She was extremely prompt with any questions I had. This company came highly recommended and I will now pass that along. I highly recommend them for any services. I will be using them for additional projects in the near future.
Anthony A. – Monroe, NJ 4/18/22
I would highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. to finish your basement. Overall, they were really patient with us and easy to work with. They plan the work carefully with you, giving you valuable suggestions during the planning process. When the work began, they made slight modifications to the plan which allowed us to better utilize our space. The electrician worked with us to place extra outlets for our TV. They also have a great payment plan – payments are spaced out over the course of work. Since this was our 1st basement project, we were really concerned about customizing the basement for our family needs. This company really helped. I really don’t have any complaints and would recommend you consider them.
Larry J. – Edison, NJ 4/8/22
We used The Basic Basement Co. to finish our basement and we are very satisfied with the finished product. The staff was professional, answered all my questions promptly, and they always did exactly what they said they would do. I would highly recommend this company and I’ll definitely be using them again for future projects.
Rashonda A. – Williamstown, NJ 4/8/22
Many thanks for all your help and professionalism. It’s super important to be communicative in business and I really appreciated how you coordinated everything and were always responsive to my myriad of questions. All the guys who worked here at the house were very pleasant and courteous. Take care and I’m sure you will hear from us again at some point.
Al W. – Robbinsville, NJ 2/5/22
I just wanted to say thank you for such great work. Simply put, the basement looks amazing. In all my life I have never dealt with such professionalism and courtesy. Every single person (vendor) that walked through our home went above and beyond to please us and made sure that everything was done quickly and efficiently. I have already recommended your company to several of my coworkers. Thank you.
Alyssa and Phillipe T. – Cherry Hill, NJ 2/5/22
Thank you so much for all the hard work you all have done to create this new space for my family. You have all done a fantastic job.
Andrew K. – Pittstown, NJ 12/18/21
From start to finish the whole process was great. The production manager kept me well informed and updated, palettes were delivered on time and the crew showed up when expected. Would highly recommend.
Sacha W. – Branchburg, NJ 12/16/21
We were extremely pleased with the job The Basic Basement Co. completed. The whole team made the process easy, and were responsive, efficient, and clean with construction while we lived in the home. They did everything they said they would and for a very fair price. We recommend them to anyone asking for basement construction referrals!
Michelle C. – West Chester, PA 12/15/21
It’s been a journey and we’re so happy to be done and ready to enjoy our basement. The floor just went in so here’s some near-final pictures. You and the teams did a great job coordinating and performing quality work. I hope everyone’s proud. Thank you for all the helpful communications and thoughtful gift card as well. I’ll make sure to relate this to the owner and we’ll keep your contact details to consider for any future remodeling projects.
Patrick B. – Lansdowne, PA 12/6/21
Thank you to you and your crew! We are very pleased with how the basement turned out and look forward to using it for many many years! You were a pleasure to work with and can’t thank you enough!
Sandra W. – Matawan, NJ 11/16/21
Great work and quick responses – we love our new space!
John H. – Matawan, NJ 11/11/21
I was extremely happy with the work done by The Basic Basement Co. All of the workers who came were nice and worked according to our expectations. The production and project crew did an awesome job.
Sowmiya V. – Princeton, NJ 11/11/21
We were very happy with the process from start to finish. The professional and organized office staff was amazing to work with. They answered all emails and questions promptly. They took care of all the scheduling, trash pick up and township permits. The sales consultant helped us with our basement design and gave us a quote on the spot. Our project managers made sure we were happy with the work being done and came to check on things periodically. Even when we wanted to make adjustments mid-project to add more features they made it happen. The crew was ALWAYS on time. My husband who is meticulous about things would go down to the basement after the crew left to check out the work and he never had a complaint. The price was reasonable and the work was done well. I would definitely recommend The Basic Basement Co. to anyone looking to finish their basement.
Phyllis L. – Millstone, NJ 10/19/21
It’s been a pleasure working with you. Thank you for being professional, respectful, organized, and really knowledgeable. I already recommended you to my neighbors and I will continue to do so.
Gail D. – Conshohocken, PA 8/30/21
Painting is all finished and it looks great! So glad to have it done. Thank you for all of your help.
Kathleen M. – Berkley Heights, NJ 8/26/21
Thanks for your extraordinary coordination throughout the project. All the crews were so professional and had a job well done. We really enjoy the extra living space and will definitely engage your company again for our next project. Have a great summer and beyond!
Corrina W. – Robbinsville, NJ 8/3/21
It was a pleasure to have The Basic Basement Co. They completed our project very smoothly and on time. Very professional team. The production manager was amazing and she helped us throughout the project. Their prices are very reasonable. I would recommend The Basic Basement Co. to my friends for their basement project.
Sanjana D. – Colonia, NJ 7/26/21
Total pleasure to work with! The Basic Basement Co. made our large basement finishing project easy. Everyone involved was courteous, professional, and skilled and kept the job on track. We could not be happier with the finished project. Highly recommend and we’ve already started spreading the word.
Joe Z. – Fairhaven, NJ 7/21/21
The Basic Basement Co. team was absolutely fantastic. From the moment they arrived to quote the project right down to the completion. Everything was done above and beyond our expectations. The team was courteous, professional, and they went above and beyond what we expected. I would recommend The Basic Basement Co. for your next basement remodel. You will not regret the decision. The team made this the best experience we could ever have imagined.
Ron B. – Hillsborough, NJ 7/15/21
I initially selected The Basic Basement Co. based upon their competitive pricing and the volume (300 + per year)/experience they have with finishing basements. Each trade was punctual, professional and all expectations were met, as they really did a great job.
Jeff F. – Gladwynne, PA 6/24/21
Thank you to the entire crew (plumbing, tile worker, carpenter, framer, dry waller, and electrician) for the job well done. We are so glad and are spreading The Basic Basement Co.’s work to all my friends. It looks like one of our friends already signed up for their basement with you.
Vijay and Uma N. – Somerset, NJ 5/26/21
They did all the framing, dry wall, electric, and carpentry work for my basement. It was a very easy, efficient process – coordinated step by step. The contractors were always on time and did great work. The price was very reasonable and we were thrilled with how it turned out. We highly recommend for anyone looking to finish a basement.
Dan R. – Conshohocken, PA 5/12/21
Fantastic. Good communication. Quality work. Easy to work with. Would use them again!
Tom G. – Blue Bell, PA 4/16/21
The Basic Basement Co. did an excellent job and made the process painless for me. Everyone who worked on the project was always on time and professional. The project coordinator and project manager both did a great job communicating with us throughout the whole project. We are very happy with the end result. I would highly recommend their services
Tej S. – Somerset, NJ 4/7/21
After getting many estimates, we hired The Basic Basement Co. to do our basement. They were the most professional in their presentation and were also the most affordable (1/3 of the price private contractors were quoting). The work was excellent! They managed every aspect of the project, including getting permits and inspections. Their communication was on point and we were kept informed every step of the way. Everything was completely timely and efficiently. They bring in experts for each task and everything was done correctly. All inspections passed the first time. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and we will certainly use them again!
Jessica B. – Lincroft, NJ 3/18/21
The final price was the same that was given in the initial estimate – no hidden fees thrown in. The estimation and scoping of project was low pressure, and they did not try to sell us anything we did not want. They asked what we wanted and once that was communicated, they quickly drew up a quote detailing the entire project. We also received mockup computer designs that showed what the finished space might look like.
They were responsive to all calls, emails and texts. The production manager did a great job with the coordination, scheduling and passing along my questions to the appropriate people. The project manager was there to help along the way…a special thank you to him as he kept the project on course and fixed issues that may seem minor to some, but were important to me.
There was no pressure to do any work that was not initially scoped out. Work was scheduled to complete the job in the shortest timeframe. In addition, all workers were professional and did their respective work with care. The work area was kept clean and trash picked up on a regular basis. All workers wore masks. Workers were well prepared and knew the job prior to arriving, and did not require much interaction on my part. At the same time, they were accommodating when I wanted to see how the job was progressing and answered questions when I had them.
Steve F. – Greenbrook, NJ 3/6/21
It was a very pleasant experience working with The Basic Basement Co. We have never experienced such great professional service before. The basement project was well defined from start to finish and everything was done on time accordingly. We would definitely hire them if we need in the future. The project coordinator always responded promptly to any concerns. We appreciate their service.
Apurva R. – Edison, NJ 3/1/21
Amazing!! Our project coordinator and her team were extremely professional and respectful in our home and listened to our concerns and ideas and helped guide us to this amazing space for my home business and rec area for our kids. We could not be happier with the job they did.
Melissa E. – Marlton, NJ 2/25/21
Love it! It’s now our favorite room in the house. Work was performed neatly and in a timely manner. Very organized, inspections done as work was finished. Never missed a day of work. Everyone was courteous, respectful and very easy to deal with. Gave us a schedule each week of what to expect each day. Was accurate with estimate of timeline. Came out better than we had expected!
Robert L. – Randolph, NJ 2/19/21
I wanted to take a moment to show my appreciation for the great work The Basic Basement Co. has done for us.
The team was very professional and did a great job with my basement. Kudos to The Basic Basement Co.
I have already referred a couple of my friends and will do more in the future.
Ankit P. – Old Bridge, NJ 2/12/21
I had a wonderful experience working with The Basic Basement Co. Professional, courteous, timely. The production manager made the entire process for me so easy and hands off – which is exactly what I was looking for. She took care of everything – scheduling the deliveries, work days, inspections…everything. The crew was so wonderful to work with – on time, efficient, knowledgeable, and just nice. And in this Covid time, always practicing social distancing and all wore masks. I finally love walking into my basement.
Erin M. – Wayne, NJ 2/11/21
The Basic Basement Co. was amazing. A big thank you to the production and project managers who made the whole process painless. In the very beginning, they were very clear and honest about what they could and couldn’t do, which I appreciated. They also outlined exactly what will be done so that there were no surprises. All the workers were very courteous and professional. They answered all of our questions and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the end result. We are thrilled with our basement and laundry room and can’t wait to use it fully!
Stanley S. – East Brunswick, NJ 2/11/21
I was so pleased with the services provided by The Basic Basement Co. The project was organized and spread over a couple weeks. I truly appreciate all of the team members who did their part in completing our basement without giving us any hassle. Everything was planned and team members were punctual and efficient at the tasks they did. We would highly recommend them as the quality of work and price they gave us no one can beat. We live in a community and they did 50 or more basements in this area already with many more to follow!
Shyna N. – Piscataway, NJ 1/28/21
The Basic Basement Co. did a great job remodeling our basement. Our basement was unfinished and we never used it because it looked terrible. The Basic Basement Co. was responsive to every inquiry we made during the project, the employees were always on time and professional, and the workmanship was top notch. The cost of the project was fair and did not increase. I strongly recommend this company.
Jeff W. – Morganville, NJ 1/25/21
We used The Basic Basement Co. to finish our basement this past fall. While it did take a little longer than the originally estimated time of 6 weeks, the basement was completed in a professional manner and all work completed went above our expectations. Every employee showed up on the expected day at the time as planned. The teams were very knowledgeable about their specialties and our main contact helped us every step of the way. Thinking each decision through was a breeze because of his experience and knowledge about the business. And his input was very helpful based off of his other customer’s experiences. The production manager was also extremely helpful in scheduling/organizing all of the components and keeping our project moving along. Highly recommend them and we would definitely use them again in the future!
Amanda P. – North Wales, PA 1/25/21
The Basic Basement Co. was a breeze to work with. I had approximately 600 sq ft of space in my basement that I wanted finished. The estimator was a no-pressure gentleman, who spent plenty of time drawing up my vision. The project manager was responsive and knowledgeable and addressed all needs and concerns promptly. The project coordinator was a pleasure to work with really making the project come together. Each team (framing, electric, drywall, spackle and finishers) was on-time, professional, and polite. They all showed grace when I asked a lot of questions and were patient when I explained my desires. This company has a high volume of jobs (which makes them very experienced), but more impressive to me was the customer service and the open line of communication. Highly recommended.
Chris B. – Woolwich, NJ 1/20/21
Recently, we hired The Basic Basement Co. to finish our basement. We are very happy with their work and would like to hire them again in future. They completed the work within their timeline though we had Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. The production manager was always on top of the coordination with contractors, us, and township. We always received a prompt and clear response from her. All of our township inspections were scheduled within a couple of days of the work being completed. On the first day of work, Kevin explained the overall process: what they will do, how long each task will take, etc. which was very clear. He provided guidance throughout the whole project, like which drywall to use and why, which lights, etc. Their contractors showed up on time, were professional, and respected our house. He was here almost every time to inspect the work when contractors were here. Very nice to work with. Highly recommended!
Rakhi S. – Piscataway, NJ 1/20/21
I can’t say enough about The Basic Basement Co. Their estimate was reasonable and right on the money. They run like a well oiled machine. They gave us a timeline for when everything would be completed and everything was done exactly according to the timeline provided. There were no added costs or delays or anything like that, and the basement came out beautiful. Highly recommend them.
Sean M. – Tinton Falls, NJ 1/20/21
I can’t say enough about The Basic Basement Co. Their estimate was reasonable and the they operate like a well oiled machine. They gave us a timeline and everything was completed according to the timeline provided. There were no added costs or delays, and the basement came out beautiful. Highly recommend them.
Sean M. – Tinton Falls, NJ 1/5/21
Fantastic! This whole team was amazing from start to finish and the end result exceeded our expectations!
Justin S. – Doylestown, PA 12/29/2020
The most professional and well managed basement remodeling company we have ever worked with. They came highly recommended by our friends and they fully lived up to our expectations. Starting with the initial estimation, the sales consultant was super professional, accommodated our COVID19 concerns by scheduling overviews via Zoom, and answered every question. No excessive salesmanship, and super professional. Our project manager and project supervisor did an excellent job in kicking off the project, getting the required permit paperwork to us in time, and walking us through every step of the process. Once the work started, everything went like clock work, which is quite amazing, given all the COVID19 restrictions and precautions they had to take. The project team kept us updated and everything went smoothly. If they said product was going to get delivered on a specific day, it was. If they said specific work was going to get accomplished, it was accomplished on time and to perfection. When the inspectors came, they actually sang praise to how great the framing and electrical work was. We’ve done a lot of remodeling in our home, and seldom has an inspector actually complimented the work. Needless to say, the inspections passed with flying colors. If you want your basement finished at a reasonable price and within a reasonable timeframe, you can’t go wrong with The Basic Basement Co. They really are an outstanding team, and nothing about their work is ‘Basic’. I would highly recommend.
Janak R. – Belle Mead, NJ 12/24/2020
After receiving multiple quotes, we chose The Basic Basement Co. to finish our basement, including adding a 1/2 bath. Right from the start, they were very professional. The overall process was extremely efficient and well-coordinated. Our project coordinator was superb. She kept us informed of next steps and was very responsive to any questions we had. Great value and craftsmanship! Now we have a great addition to our home that we can enjoy!
Kenneth M. – Sicklerville, NJ 12/15/2020
The Basic Basement Co. was great to work with! From the start, the salesman was on-time and professional. My project managers helped me every step of the way (even when my mind changed multiple times!). The contractors were professional, respected my home, and were just great to deal with!
Evan G. – Robbinsville, NJ 11/25/2020
The Basic Basement Co. made this process extremely smooth and easy. We were not inconvenienced at all despite having pretty major work done in our home. You now how you get an estimated timeline and bottom line cost and you figure in your mind “ok double that – it’ll take twice as long and cost twice as much”? That was not the case at all. Both the price and timeline estimates were exactly right! The production manager made scheduling easy and even helped me communicate with the township about permits and an outside HVAC company, and the project manager oversaw that everything was smooth. Whether it was the painters, floor company, inspector or family, everyone has commented how clean and beautiful the work looks — smooth lines and attention to detail. Honestly, I wish that everything in my life went as smooth as this project!
Rebecca I. & Craig D. – Southampton, PA 11/25/2020
In short, the best value for service and professionalism. We selected The Basic Basement Co. over other companies based on their Design Consultant being so knowledgeable and not pushy. Then, from their excellent waterproofing project, we found their other team members to be so customer-oriented as well – from always keeping us informed with various stages of work (Kevin, Field Manager) to scheduling their work teams and attending to our inquiries satisfactorily and promptly. This led us to hiring the Company again a few months later for our basement remodeling. They did an even more excellent job. We love our basement so much now – it looks great (and per our specifications) and the air smells dry even during long rainy days. They also helped us with town inspections. Truly, a top-notch Company and we recommend it greatly to anyone!
Ken K. & Wei Z. – East Brunswick, NJ 11/19/2020
The Basic Basement Co. did an outstanding job for us. They finished our basement on time and on budget. They were very professional and courteous, followed all COVID-19 safety protocols, maintained active and pro-active communication, handled all logistical items, and overall exceeded my expectations of what a contractor should be doing. After hearing so many horror stories about other companies, it was great to experience a positive outcome. We got exactly what we wanted.
Samuel C. – Conshohocken, PA 11/19/2020
My wife and I did a lot of research when choosing a contractor to help us finish our basement, and The Basic Basement Co. was highly recommended by a friend. Not only that, their estimate was the lowest out of any that we solicited. It was an extremely smooth process and their staff was very helpful and attentive throughout. The work was done on-budget and ahead of schedule and we couldn’t be happier with the results. There were no surprises or hidden fees and it looks exactly like what we had hoped. The town inspectors (fire, structural and electrical) all commented separately at how impressed they were with how clean the work was. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to get any kind of work done on their basement. This is what they do, and they absolutely know how to do it!
Mike & Amy S. – Ledgewood, NJ 11/12/2020
This is the second time that we’ve used the Basic Basement Company to finish a basement for us. We are very happy with the results. The process was smooth, timely and professional. Pricing was fair and reasonable. Communication was excellent. Great work!
Barry & Leslie S. – Spring Lake, NJ 11/11/2020
I rarely write reviews but would like to acknowledge the outstanding service provided by this company. Every worker was reliable, courteous and did top notch work on my basement project. The scheduler was also on top of everything and very responsive. Highly recommend The Basic Basement Co.!
Mike F. – Flanders, NJ 11/10/2020
We met with the salesman who was very nice and personable. He was not pushy in the least and was very knowledgeable. The production coordinator for all facets of the job – we could not ask for a better communicator. She was on top of our job from permits through completion. These guys are very efficient. They have different crews for all the trades required and they’re good. Overall, we are very pleased with our basement. And, because of the communication and their efficiency and price, we look forward to using this company for our kitchen.
Brian K. – Lumberton, NJ 11/3/2020
Working with The Basic Basement Co. on our full basement finishing project was a great experience – I felt like I had a partner! We finished over 1500 square feet with a full bathroom, plenty of storage, and a workout room. We customized a small kitchen and bar half-wall and installed wall and ceiling speakers for music. Our project manager, as well as his own team of great tradespeople, was a professional and seemed to know our vision, the conditions, materials, requirements, and inspections. Every action was planned and scheduled accordingly and the team at The Basic Basement Co. communicated throughout the process – thank you for the coordination! We did this in the midst of a pandemic. I salute the team for observing separate entrances, practicing mask wearing and appropriate hygiene – we felt safe and knew we were working with professionals. I feel this has been one of the best value investments we’ve made in our home. Don’t just hire The Basic Basement Co. – hire them today!
Jeremy C. – New Hope, PA 11/2/2020
I cannot say enough about The Basic Basement Co. They were amazing to work with from start to finish. The sales consultant was the first person we met with and he walked us through the process. The production manager was always responsive and extremely helpful. Our project manager made sure everything ran smoothly and was so helpful in making our vision come to life. Every team member that came into our home – framers, electricians, plumbers, painters, carpenters – were professional, clean, and did beautiful work. I highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. for any project you may have. Best of the best and we couldn’t be happier with how our basement came out!
Kara & Ryan W. – Mount Laurel, NJ 10/28/2020
Electrical passed inspection. The inspector commented that whoever did the framing and electrical did a really nice job. He said he has seen a lot of electrical work require multiple inspections but this one was done very nicely – both electrical and framing (although he did say he was not a framing inspector and that someone else would have to come by).
It’s rare to get a compliment from an inspector – but I think it says volumes about your work!
Janak R. – Belle Mead, NJ 10/19/2020
Planning and execution of the project was on time and perfectly done – coordination between the teams and ordering material as needed, floors were cleaned after each day of work, and township Inspections were done with no issues.
Uma N. – Willow Grove, PA 10/13/2020
We just completed our basement finishing project and from the first call, I have been delighted with The Basic Basement Co.
They are the best contractors I have worked with. They were very clear on what the job would entail, and a transparent quote was provided the same day as a consultant visited. I was assigned a project manager and a scheduler, and the company filled out all of the necessary permit paperwork to make that stage easy with my local town. Once the permits were approved, a date was set, and again, the full timeline and stages were reviewed. They even managed to start the job 2 days earlier than planned and in a single day had the entire basement framed, and insulated. They have their own professionals on staff, so they are not reliant on subcontractors, and all stages were completed on time and on budget. They were extremely friendly, and observed all possible safety precautions while being in my home. Our town inspections (which they scheduled) were over in minutes with the town’s inspector saying “these guys always do great work”. A month after the job began, In the middle of a global pandemic, I have a fully finished basement. I would (and have already) recommended them. They made a major project easy and seamless.
Andrew N. – Fairhaven, NJ 10/13/2020
Just wanted to send kudos on what a good job the framing team did today. Truly remarkable to see what those guys were able to accomplish in one day. Please pass on our feedback on their work. Those guys work hard and efficiently!
Jon C. – Huntingdon Valley, PA 10/7/2020
Please thank each of your crews for me. They all did an outstanding job and were lovely to work with, and I will happily be a reference for your services!
Sarah S. – West Orange, NJ 10/2/2020
The Basic Basement Co. is one of the best companies I’ve worked with. They did a complete renovation of our basement and they had top notch craftsmanship and management. The production manager was on top of everything and made all of the arrangements as seamless as possible. We will definitely be reaching out to them again for future projects.
Matthew E. – Randolph, NJ 10/1/2020
Excellent! They responded very quickly when I requested a quote and delivered in all aspects! Every deadline was met, the workmanship was phenomenal, and I had little to no issues. The production manager kept me updated every step of the way. I knew exactly what was happening and when. The crews were on time and very professional. They completed a total remodel including the floor. Absolutely beautiful! So glad I choose them for the project!!
Joyce K. – Jackson, NJ 10/1/2020
Excellent. Very professional, friendly, timely, competitive costing and co-operating. I strongly recommend The Basic Basement Co. to everyone for home modeling work.
Sunil K. – Edison, NJ 10/1/2020
I liked and enjoyed all the people who came to do the work with such great professionalism, spirit and a well communicated staff during the entire process. I really liked the enthusiasm and dedication they brought to the project. It would be a great injustice if I didn’t thank the framers, electricians, carpenters, painters and all support staff who made it happen.
I will definitely recommend your company to my friends and family.
Thank you and congratulations again on a job well done!
Amar P. – Edison, NJ 9/30/2020
We have been so happy with this whole process, and each and every one of the people who worked with us on this project! You’ve really made it so easy and stress-free!
Jessica F. – Flemington, NJ 9/30/2020
The inspector just left, and was very complimentary of the job your team has done in the basement. I know it is one thing for customers to be happy, but impressing an inspector is really something. Thank you again for lining everything up. Have a great week!
Jenn K. – Newtown, PA 9/8/2020
Excellent. The service and professionalism from The Basic Basement Co. was excellent. Every morning, crews arrived exactly on time and the level of communication from the project manager and dedicated concierge were superb. Everything promised was delivered. Quality craftsmanship at a great price. This is not a “basic” company, they are a highly efficient organization whose model is the future to home remodeling. Absolute pleasure to work with and couldn’t be happier with the end-result.
James S. – Manalapan, NJ 8/31/2020
After looking around for couple of months, we finally nailed down on The Basic Basement Co. for our basement finishing project and was it a great decision or what! We did not want a cookie-cutter design, wanted it done our way with the highest degree of quality, and also in a quick time frame. I must mention that they checked all the boxes and more…they were really top-notch through the entire gig! We started the project in Feb 2020 but had to stop due to the COVID-19 situation. They were so accommodating and told me to call them back whenever I feel comfortable to restart the project. I called them in late June/early July and within a week they were back. The speed of execution, the coordination and the project management was second to none. Here are some highlights – the sales guy gave me the best price, but more importantly explained everything patiently as I had a few specific requests. The production manager – I would one word for her – ROCKSTAR! She is truly one of the best people I have worked with and knows how to help and please customers. From scheduling the crew to come per my accelerated request to scheduling the inspections, she was a one-stop-shop for everything. The Project Manager was probably the smoothest operator I have come across and ensures his customers understand every step of the process and works with his customers until they are satisfied. One other thing that I’d like to call out is that they have different teams for different kinds of work (that helps with the expertise and precision of every job) but everyone came with the required PPE to ensure safety during these unprecedented times. I highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. for any remodeling project.
Ankesh G. – Belle Mead, NJ 8/17/2020
This company did excellent work and I would recommend them again. The project manager was a pleasure to work with and got the work done on a timely basis even with the Virus and the many slowdowns.
Keith M. – Newton, NJ 8/17/2020
The experience with The Basic Basement Co. was like no other. It ran so smooth from the time the project started until the time the project ended. I would highly recommend this company for any remodels anyone is looking for – great price, awesome quality, well thought out, and always have your best interest in mind. If you ever have any questions about anything going on with your project, the production and project managers respond back immediately, which is great. For any future remodels we do, we will be using this company for sure!
Dustin and Neena L. – Langhorne, PA 7/27/2020
The Basic Basement Co. exceeded our expectations. They walked us through each step and shared great knowledge and advise. Each employee that we interacted with was professional and courteous. We highly recommend them.
James L. – Spotswood, NJ 7/24/2020
All of the work was done in a smooth and timely manner. All of the employees that worked to finish our basement were very professional and knowledgeable. Each crew that came in set up properly, cleaned up and did an outstanding job on the basement remodel. I would recommend them to anyone looking to finish their basement. The price was very reasonable and met all expectations with the work performed and the final product.
Adam M. – Bordentown, NJ 7/21/2020
From start to finish, this project was executed professionally. We received a thorough quote, including a walk-through of options, measurements, and necessities. The permit packet I received was even complimented by the township for being so thorough. The project manager set timeline expectations on the first day, and each day of construction was clearly coordinated. Our project was stalled half way through due to COVID, but as soon as we were allowed, everything resumed with the same precision. In the end, our unfinished, dungeon-like basement was transformed into a cozy, well-lit space. We got the perfect basement well within our budget. I wholeheartedly appreciate and recommend the professionalism that The Basic Basement Co. can provide for your project.
Chelsey N. – East Windsor, NJ 7/6/2020
Excellent professional service and outstanding accommodation during Covid pandemic. All contractor’s adherence to CDC guidelines made us feel safe. The project manager was very helpful with designing the project and timely completion. We were very impressed with their professional service and would highly recommend them. The cost was very reasonable for the quality of products and service provided. Thank you to all the staff at The Basic Basement Co.
Dr. M. – Princeton Junction, NJ 7/1/2020
Thank you all for such an amazing job on our basement! We are so happy with the finished product and it was such a pleasure working with all of you! Amazing job!!! They took our unfinished basement and turned it into a whole new living area. They put in a French drain to combat any water as we have a high water table and it was always damp down there – now, it is bone dry. Then they turned our dark unfinished area to a bright space that will offer us years of enjoyment. EVERY crew that came in did an amazing job!! All were very friendly and professional and always cleaned up at the end of the day, even if they weren’t finished with their respective job.
The production manager is an amazing quarterback and was simply a pleasure to work with. I spoke to the owner several times during the project as he offered insight and design ideas throughout, which was great. We started the project and was halted during the pandemic and they kept us in the loop the whole time about stopping and restarting. When we re-started, they were very cautious and made sure we felt safe along with making their crew feel safe.
Their pricing was unbeatable. We had several contractors give us estimates and not only were their estimates a lot higher, they also weren’t guaranteed like The Basic Basements Co. There were NO hidden charges or up-charges, so we knew actually what we were budgeted for.
We’ve had a lot of work done on our house over several years, and The Basic Basement Co. was by far the best quality and best service of any contractors we have worked with.
Thank you for making our basement into an area our family will enjoy for years to come.
Matthew and Jessica G. – Colts Neck, NJ 6/29/2020
The Basic Basement Co. was hired based on reviews on Angie’s List. From providing a quote, to project management, to price and quality – they were incredible. All teams were super knowledgeable, professional, courteous and subject matter experts in plumbing, carpentry, flooring, electrical and the inspection process, as well as provided excellent project management. The entire project was transparent and all team members had patience to explain various aspects of the project in order to make appropriate choices. We were glad to select The Basic Basement Co. for our project and we highly recommend them. They take pride in what they do. We wouldn’t hesitate to hire them for any future project. The Basic Basement Co. exceeded our expectations. I would like to thank Angie’s List for providing reviews to help make a the decision to work with The Basic Basement Co. We look forward to working with them for all future needs.
Tusar V. – East Windsor, NJ 6/22/2020
From start to finish, The Basic Basement Co. was A++++! We have done several remodeling projects over the past 5 years with smaller independent companies, and always seemed to run into issues. With The Basic Basement Co., we got exactly what we wanted, delivered in a super efficient timeline. The production manager is INCREDIBLE and kept our project moving along quickly, and the project manager was fantastic, making tweaks to our plan to keep our vision intact. I would use them again in a HEARTBEAT, and have never been so satisfied with a construction company!
Alyson C. – Middletown, NJ 6/22/2020
The Basic Basement Co. were awesome! The design team saw a great vision for our basement. The production manager was constantly updating us on each step. The project managers were awesome with helping us get our basement perfect with the accommodations needed. Highly recommend them for any of your remodeling needs.
Dan B. – Mt Royal, NJ 6/15/2020
Fantastic! It was a pleasure to work everyone from the office team to everyone that came to my home. They were polite, clean and very thoughtful. I’ve had work done in my home before but this was by far the best experience. I am recommending The Basic Basement Co. to my family and friends.
Toni M. – Morristown, NJ 6/15/2020
The Basic Basement Co. was a pleasure to work with and did an amazing job. They transformed our dingy little basement to a wonderful play room for the kids and storage area for the adults. I would recommend them to anyone.
Scott D. – Wayne, NJ 6/12/2020
We had a great experience with The Basic Basement Co. The project was completed in March 2020. Their process is well organized and nothing surprised me along the way. We worked with their designers to maximize our basement space. It turned out better than I ever hoped for. Our three children will get to enjoy this new space for the next 15+ years! All workers were respectful and hard-working – each stage took about a day to complete. I would hire The Basic Basement Co. again!
Matthew M. – Cherry Hill, NJ 3/16/20
Fantastic! Highly recommend this company. The employees were friendly and easy to deal with. The work was done on time and they did a great job. Pricing was fair and the office manager was able to work around our difficult schedule. In the future, if we decide to remodel our kitchen or bathroom, we will definitely be utilizing this company.
Matthew C. – Ocean, NJ 3/16/2020
They were great and very professional, and the pricing was detailed and reasonable. They explained the work to be performed, and finished all work on time. They always kept me informed as to what was next, which I liked a lot about this company.
Raghavendra T. – Montville, NJ 3/13/20
I cannot say enough about The Basic Basement Co.
The office personnel handled all arrangements – permit completion, appointments for all workers (Plumbing, Electrical, Carpenters, Painters, Carpenters, Floor Installers). All appointments made and were kept. Workers came at the appointed time, were professional, neat (did all possible to keep dirt at a minimum included covering all areas needed while bringing equipment/tools into the basement), extremely courteous, and willing to explain what they were doing.
A project manager was assigned to the job. He stayed on top of the job and assisted in answering any questions and arranging small changes that were requested. Each team took one day to complete their job, cleaned up when finished, removed all debris to the outside which was taken away within a day or two. Minor changes requested were made with no issue and no sense that it was an annoyance.
Changes to appointments were handled quickly and professionally. Every staff member and/or worker was most eager to be as accommodating as possible. My wife and I have never dealt with a company that we were more pleased with. I recommend them highly and would use them again without hesitation. Price was also the most reasonable quote we got. The representative who came was very thorough in explaining and detailing what would be done.
Larraine and John F. – Holmdel, NJ 2/28/20
From start to finish, The Basic Basement Co. delivered as promised. We were nervous, of course, deciding on a company for such a big project. Everything they told us was done and everyone we dealt with was pleasant. Every specialist that was assigned to our project (electrician, plumber, carpenter, drywall specialists, etc.) showed up on time and did immaculate work. I highly recommend using them for your basement project!
Grace D. – Manalapan, NJ 2/27/20
Hands down, THE BEST company we’ve ever worked with. We received quotes from various companies and contractors and decided to go with The Basic Basement Co. due to the reviews we read and their competitive price. Their estimate of project completion was on-point (started January 13, completed final inspection February 25). It took 6 weeks to complete, which was the exact target they initially gave us (5-6 weeks). The project manager was PERFECT and very accommodating with scheduling when the workers would arrive, and the project manager was great. All workers arrived on time. Everyone in the company was efficient and professional. We would definitely do business with the company again. You won’t be disappointed with their workmanship…we can’t wait to start entertaining in our basement!
Jen R. – Clinton, NJ 2/26/20
I enjoyed the professionalism of the contractors performing the work. They were respectful of our house and paid attention to all details. The electrical contractors were very good and would certainly recommend them. Everything went according to plan and the project manager diligently responded to all questions.
Lastly, we would like to thank the production manager for the continuous communication. She was on top of her game and the manner in which everything was very effective.
In all, we had a great experience with The Basic Basement Co. and would certainly recommend to friends.
Edwin V. – Langhorne, PA 2/21/2020
It went very smooth – from the township work order to final approval. The team was very professional and thorough. They answered all our questions patiently and provided excellent service.
Rajendra S. – Lawrenceville, NJ 2/20/2020
I just wanted to say how incredibly happy I was. The team went above and beyond for us, taking the time to do things just right, and in doing so, it’s a wonderful and valuable reflection on your company.
Thank you for providing us with a beautiful basement and for your excellent customer care and service.
Toby W. – Denville, NJ 2/18/2020
The job done was fantastic. They are very organized and the project manager kept the job on track. Once they assessed the project, a quote was given immediately, and the project moved forward quickly and smoothly. I would recommend them to anyone looking to finish their basement.
Naveen A. – Morris Plains, NJ 2/3/2020
The production manager was nothing short of amazing! Very detailed oriented, kept me updated on all installations, time schedules, etc. This was a HUGE project, and it went very well…every team member was professional, courteous, and polite. At the end of each day you could barely tell we were having work completed.
Nicole P. – Sicklerville, NJ 1/28/2020
It was a very nice experience. They are very systematic and advise when needed. We would highly recommend them.
Sharath & Shweta S. – West Chester, PA 1/22/2020
The project was done professionally from start to finish. The project managers took care of every detail. The entire process was seamless. All construction employees were on time, cleaned up debris, and were masters of their trade. I couldn’t be happier with our finished project.
Gloria S. – Brick, NJ 9/4/19
From the production manager to our project manager to the electrician and LITERALLY EVERY OTHER TEAM that they sent here, they were AMAZING!!! Professional, knowledgeable, easy to work with, and everything was completed in a timely manner. They also cleaned up after themselves every day!!
Our basement looks amazing thanks to them, and they were so helpful and attentive every step of the way!! We want to hire them for all of our future projects!! Our inspectors kept commenting on how thorough they were!! Can’t say enough great things about them!!!
Robert F. – Sparta, NJ 11/9/2019
The Basic Basement Co. did a fantastic and top notch job finishing our unfinished basement. The project coordinator helps keep everything on schedule. She’s very responsive should you have any questions. Our project manager was very responsive to my phone calls and addressed all of my concerns. All of the other team members we worked with were very experienced and made sure to complete their job on time and with high quality. The quote I received at the beginning was what I ended up paying so I’m very thankful for that. This is a great company to work with and you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to be thorough with your plans up front and they take care of the rest just as you drew it up.
Tin H. – East Brunswick, NJ 10/25/2019
I want to thank you all for a job well done in a seamless fashion. You all are so talented, cooperative and pleasant to work with. I will be recommending your company to anyone that is looking for a good job by experts. Thanks for the association. Maybe my next book will be about The Basic Basement Co.
Roger K. – Toms River, NJ 10/23/2019
Zero hassle and a fabulous job!! When they say the crew will come on a certain day, the crew comes – no no-shows, and no delays. I could always communicate with the project manager or project coordinator. The workmanship was also super. I recommend to everyone.
Jeeho S. – Fords, NJ 10/21/2019
Thank you for a job well done. I can’t tell you how many compliments I get when people see my new basement!
Jared M. – Manalapan, NJ 10/3/2019
We had a great experience with The Basic Basement Co. The process from quote to completion was orderly and well managed. The work was done well, on cost and on time. There was one little surprise along with way which caused a minor expense (less than $300) but it was understandable. The Project Manager and Office Manager were excellent, always available and professional. I never had any problem getting in touch with either to ask a question or seek info. We were very happy with the work done for the price paid. I would have no reservations about hiring them again for similar work.
Adam R. – Howell, NJ 9/27/2019
The project was done professionally from start to finish. The project managers took care of every detail. The entire process was seamless. All construction employees were on time, cleaned up debris, and were masters of their trade. I couldn’t be happier with our finished project.
Gloria S. – Brick, NJ 9/4/2019
We had a phenomenal experience with this company from start to finish! Our experience began with our free consultation which was scheduled at our convenience. When their representative arrived, he was knowledgeable, listened well, understood our needs, and made recommendations. We did not feel pressured into any upgrades. During the consultation, the representative was able to provide us with a firm estimate and he even came prepared with equipment to print out our contract! By the end of the consultation, we fully understood what work was going to be done and how much it was going to cost.
Once we made our contract, the office team put together the permit package fairly quickly. We had no issues once I submitted to my township for approval. After our permit was approved, they began scheduling. On the first day, I met my onsite project manager. He did a great job explaining the process so we would know what to expect. On every phase of the project, each team was punctual, extremely professional, and performed their tasks quickly. I was impressed at the attention to detail. Every detail we discussed was executed.
Another thing that stuck out for me was that they kept the work area extremely clean. They made sure dust did not get into other areas of my home and they always removed their waste materials.
Lastly, the person from the office who worked in tandem with my onsite project manager was in constant communication by email. There was never a moment when we weren’t aware of when a team was going to show up or when the township inspectors were coming. Even our township inspector was impressed with our job in terms of the quality of work.
Seneca G. – Roebling, NJ 8/24/19
The work in our basement was well orchestrated and done in a timely fashion. Workers were punctual professional, and did a very good job. The project and production managers were exceptional, very pleasant, professional in coordinating the project, and patiently and politely answered all questions. We have no hesitation using this company again in the future.
Joycelyn G. – Lopatcong, NJ 8/22/19
This project was a success. The project took about 6 weeks to complete and the job was not big or complicated, but The Basic Basement Co. did an excellent job from the sales process through final inspections. The price was much lower than other contractors as they don’t offer the concierge or hand holding that others might, but the job was done professionally and they turned an unfinished basement into a beautiful space. We couldn’t be more pleased with the process. I would definitely consider them again for other home construction services.
Jeffrey R. – Cherry Hill, NJ 8/21/19
The Basic Basement Co. did a phenomenal job finishing our basement! They were punctual, responsive when I needed to reach them, extremely efficient, and did excellent work. They did not subcontract – every team showed up in The Basic Basement Co. truck and was part of their team – framers, sheet rockers, dry wall and spacklers, plumbers and electricians – it’s all their team and they did an excellent job!
We wanted our basement to turn out perfect, and they ensured that we got our dream basement!
Thanks so much for everything!
Jared M. – Manalapan, NJ 8/16/19
We hired The Basic Basement Co. for what I would label as a basic finishing project; no added bathrooms, etc. We
liked the reviews we read for The Basic Basement Co. and also the longevity they had in the industry, so we gave them a call. Their estimate was by far the best that we received so we hired them to do the work.
After a brief period, I received scheduling requests and guidance for filing the permit information that they provided. They were very clear about what needed to be done and clearly instructed us in the completion of the permit. The person at the permit office in our town even stated that they get permit requests involving The Basic Basement Co. frequently and they’re always correct. No issues with the town!
The staff that scheduled, supervised, and performed the work couldn’t be more professional and accommodating. They assisted me with items that required attention for them to do their job. They overcame certain idiosyncrasies in the basement layout, and did it all on-schedule. Each team member was very friendly and very skilled.
At inspections, the inspectors noted the quality of work with every detail considered, one of which said “I’ve never found a problem with The Basic Basement Co.”.
Have no fear if you’re considering The Basic Basement Co. for a remodeling/finishing job. You are absolutely in the best hands available.
Thank you very much for all of your assistance and expertise. This was a great experience for us. The basement looks great and The Basic Basement Co. was so superb. I’m looking forward to recommending you to others.
John P. – South Plainfield, NJ 8/2/19
The project went very well. The production and project managers were super responsive and organized. The workers were always punctual, professional, courteous, efficient, and on schedule. The few issues that came up during inspections the team handled quickly. Like others have said, nothing basic about The Basic Basement Co. – I would definitely hire them again!
Jennifer P. – Old Bridge, NJ 8/2/19
The Basic Basement Co. did an outstanding job! We had our 260 sq ft basement finished. They were always on time and very professional throughout. They are trustworthy and got the job done quickly. They did not inconvenience us at all throughout the course of the project. They even paint and do floors. Overall, we are very pleased with the job and would hire them again.
Dough C. – Hamilton, NJ 8/1/19
The entire team was genuinely concerned with making sure we were happy with the work throughout the process. We were kept informed at every step of the process, and the production manager was constantly in touch with me scheduling work and addressing concerns if any until all inspections were done. The project was completed on time. Would be happy to recommend.
Preetham T. – Edison, NJ 7/30/19
The team was amazing to work with. They were very responsive to all questions and kept the project moving through each phase. Highly recommended!
Dennis H. – Eatontown, NJ 7/29/19
I am not one to post reviews – good service or bad service – I just go with the flow. However, with The Basic Basement Co. I started out as a skeptic and now and I am their BIGGEST FAN. These guys are the real DEAL and deliver on exactly what is advertised. The workmanship is exceptional and the communication between the staff and myself was the best I’ve ever experienced. If you need your basement finished, trust me look no further. The Basic Basement Co. is the answer. I give them 5 stars out of 5. If you don’t use these guys, don’t do the project as no one else can do it as well.
Mark W. – Yardley, PA 7/19/19
It was a pleasure working with your company. The entire job went seamlessly. I’m sure all
the scheduling was responsible for that, and that’s where you come in – you made everything flow painlessly
and took care of every detail. The project manager was also enjoyable to work with and kept in touch to make
sure everything was done properly and according to code.
Richard M. – Califon, NJ 7/18/19
Just to let you know, your quality of work and professionalism is really impressive. Glad that we went for The Basic Basement Co. and I am confident about this project now.
Munish A. – Princeton Junction, NJ 7/12/19
It was great working with you – everyone did an awesome job. We appreciate the work that went into finishing our basement, and the flexibility due our vacation in May. I will be recommending The Basic Basement Co. when asked who did the work.
Have a great 4th of July and summer.
Andrew and Kristin K. – Harleysville, PA 6/28/19
Just wanted to take some time to say that the crew was great yesterday. Very nice and professional. They also did a nice job cleaning up where I didn’t have to do anything (other companies I worked with were not this way). I didn’t get to say goodbye to the crew, but if you could just convey what a great job they did, I would truly appreciate it. I also told this to the project manager who was also very nice and helpful.
Stephanie K. – Parlin, NJ 6/27/19
Can’t say enough good things about this company. Their office staff kept me informed every step of
the way, and the crews were courteous, professional, and extremely neat. The project was completed in the time frame promised.
Carolyn K. – Spring Lakes, NJ 6/13/19
So excited, it looks fantastic! You have a great team!
Final inspections done & approved. I can’t say enough about how easy you made this go. You have my “thumbs up“, and I’m usually pretty picky.
All of the staff were great – knowledgeable, professional, neat, and friendly. I will spread the word about how impressed I am with your company.
My experience as a manager in retail has given me considerable experience in customer service. You had it
Great Job to you all!
Jamie H. – Shamong, NJ 5/23/19
It was a pleasure working with The Basic Basement Co. Everything was done in a timely and professional
manner. I highly recommend using them – I couldn’t have been happier.
Ron F. – Sewaren, NJ 5/23/19
The Basic Basement Co. demolished our old, finished basement and built a new one from the ground up.
This included a reconfiguration of the main living space, construction of 2 rooms, and a new wall along
our steps. I found the process to be very easy and appreciated their transparency and responsiveness throughout. The quote was very easy to understand and they were willing to work with us on a few special requests. Once the work began, it was very efficient and easy to follow the progress. Each of the teams that completed different phases of work were easy to work with and very helpful. The centralized coordinator and project managers were very responsive and focused on ensuring our satisfaction with the results. We’re very happy with the overall experience and results.
Karen and Bill C. – Haddonfield, NJ 5/21/19
I just wanted to say that “we are AMAZED” by your whole crew. There are no words to describe how effective your company is. We are so happy!!!!
Nel P. – Pittstown, NJ 5/3/19
Work started in December 2018 and completed in Feb 2019. The production manager had it planned very well. The project manager overseeing the work was very knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating. The production manager took care of scheduling permits and township approval.
Neelesh S. – Whippany, NJ 4/29/19
The Basic Basement Co. was fabulous. The project manager was very responsive and always available to answer questions. The job was done very quickly with each crew (drywall, taping, electrical, etc.) coming on time or ahead of schedule. The project managers were also always available for questions or explanations. Each and every crew member was courteous, helpful and very pleasant. The project manager took care of scheduling each town inspection for us and each one passed with no issues. The work was done with exceptional quality, attention to detail and exactly to code. The price was exactly as quoted and we actually added on painting at a very reasonable cost. Would absolutely recommend and use them again when needed.
Matthew M. – Ambler, PA 2/14/19
I can’t say enough about The Basic Basement Co. Efficient, professional, and on time every day. Every crew left the
jobsite immaculate every day. The scheduling was flawless and the project manager was available to answer all my questions.
Brian C. – Clifton, NJ 2/3/19
The Basic Basement Co. was a pleasure to work with. They were very upfront and clear on pricing as opposed to some other contractors I interviewed. Most others gave me a huge range, best guess, or worse – they asked me what I wanted to spend. The Basic Basement Co. gave me detailed pricing on the first meeting and I hired them on the spot.
The work performed was just as good. They were prompt, clean and fast. They took care of all the paperwork with the township, completed the work exactly as they said they would, and finished on time.
I already recommended them to neighbors and will continue to recommend them.
Christopher H. – Marlton, NJ 1/21/19
From the very first phone call to the end of the project – The Basic Basement Co. was professional, respectful
and responsible. They were always on time, I was constantly updated, and answers to questions or information I
requested were provided immediately.
The estimator was very knowledgeable of all town codes. We reviewed the entire project on the first day and he explained items of concern. He was able to provide an accurate cost of finishing my basement the same day as the initial estimate.
I was assigned a project manager that made sure the job was done as expected. The basement project was completed on time, and the installation team paid attention to every detail. Drop cloths were placed throughout the house to protect my floors. They cleaned up after each step of project was completed, and took away all trash.
They took the worry out of everything. They scheduled the town inspectors, making sure that all codes were adhered to, and submitted drawings and required paperwork for my basement project.
I was really impressed when the town inspector commented on the workmanship. He knew right away it the contractor was The Basic Basement Co. All materials used for the project were high quality, and they never cut corners.
I want to say thanks to everyone at The Basic Basement Co. for the great job they did and I would recommend them.
Robert S. – Morganville, NJ 12/27/18
I can’t so enough good things about every aspect of dealing with The Basic Basement Co. It
started with a meeting to quote and go over what we wanted to do. They were helpful and offered great
suggestions. The Quote was broken down and explained in detail. Every nut and screw planned was accounted for.
The workers were all great. Each crew that came out on their scheduled day were extremely professional, hard working, polite and punctual. The work was done on schedule or before, and the work product was exceptional. The workers went above and beyond to help make my basement more than what I expected.
Working with the office manager and project managers was a pleasure. They handled all questions and helped with all inspection planning. They were often a step ahead of any question that I had. I recommend The Basic Basement Co. for any and all of your basement finishing needs. I am completely satisfied with my new space and want to thank each and every person involved for the work they put into finishing my basement.
Joseph R. – Lindenwold, NJ 12/12/18
At the beginning of the project, the project manager met with me – he was very thorough, and reviewed all work that was to be done. The office manager always kept in touch with me. The workers were on time everyday, did a great job, and always cleaned up at the end of the day. I highly recommend hiring The Basic Basement Co. for basement remodeling.
Thank you, The Basic Basement Co., for the excellent work!!!
Thomas K. – Helmetta, NJ 12/5/18
You all were great, and the ease of getting work done, as well as the workmanship, exceeded our expectations. Look forward to doing business in the future.
Les F. – Lansdale, PA 11/20/18
The Basic Basement Co. were a pleasure to work with. They were on time, on schedule, on
budget, courteous and responsive. The office manager managed to pull off an aggressive timeline and was always
available to answer questions. The project manager and crew were polite and went the extra mile. The basement turned out great, and we could not be happier. We highly recommend.
Jean B. – Fanwood, NJ 11/8/18
The Basic Basement Co. was wonderful to work with from start to finish. The entire staff was very
communicative, flexible and completely forthright through all phases, not to mention fast! They managed
to stay within our budget and make modifications without us feeling like we were missing out on important details. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to have work done.
Renee B. – Pittstown, NJ 11/8/18
The project began with a complementary consultation. The representative talked to us about our vision, took measurements, provided suggestions, and proceeded to show us the preliminary costs. He walked us through the timeline and was completely transparent with items or additions that may add to the bottom line. He suggested we think things over and reach out to him when we made our decision. It was this no pressure, transparent approach that led us to agree to move forward.
Once we signed on, we were immediately assigned a project coordinator that kept us abreast of upcoming work, permit responsibilities or anything else necessary for the project to continue on time. She never failed to make us aware of any scheduling conflicts or project hurdles (very few to mention) and was quick to come up with solutions…she was superb!! Our project manager was hands on at the beginning and end of each stage of the project including; framing, sheetrock, egress installation, electrical, and more. He walked us through the work and made sure it was finished properly at the end. The workers were clean, courteous, and experts at their crafts.
The work was completed on time, within budget, and exceeded our expectations. We want to thank the entire team at The Basic Basement Co. for giving us this new space that our family will enjoy for years, and we would recommend them to anyone!!!
Marc Z. – Upper Makefield, PA 10/27/18
Thank you & your crew for the wonderful work on our basement. It is beautiful, and we will enjoy it very much for a long time to come.
Jack B. – Hillsborough, NJ 9/27/18
I would highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. The level of customer service is the highest that I have experienced.
My project began with an initial phone call to The Basic Basement Co. to schedule an estimate. The estimator came to my home the following day, and was very informative and provided numerous suggestions for my project. I signed my contract that night (after receiving numerous estimates from other remodeling companies) as I felt confident in the price and that I would be working with a terrific company.
The permit packet was completed for me and the transformation of my unfinished basement was underway. Once the permits were approved by the township, the production manager scheduled the framing and I was introduced to my project manager (tremendous as well).
The framers were so nice and polite, not to mention hard working! They were able to finish framing the entire basement in two days! After the framing was complete, the plumbers came in to do the initial work for my bathroom. They were extremely nice and hard working as well. The electrician was able to wire the entire basement in one day! He arrived early and stayed well past what I thought was “quitting time” for the day. The spackle and tape crew along with sheetrock crew were amazing. The bathroom tile work came out amazing!
In summary, The Basic Basement Co. did a fantastic job. I couldn’t be happier with the work that they did. I was treated with great respect, the communication could not have been any better, any questions or concerns that I had were answered/addressed immediately. The crews were extremely polite and very hard working and garbage was cleaned up neatly and left outside of my garage for immediate pick up. I would give The Basic Basement Co. an A++++++ if that were possible.
Brendan C. – Holmdel, NJ 9/18/18
I am very happy with my basement project. I really appreciate the way you guys handled the project from start to completion. Everything went smooth. I would like to thank all of your associates for their efforts in completing this project.
Ranadheer K. – Morris Plains, NJ 9/14/18
Just wanted to confirm that the framing is done. And, if you could kindly let their manager know how incredible they were, I’d greatly appreciate it. They couldn’t have done a better job, been more courteous, or left things any cleaner. What a positive reflection they are on your company!
Gilbert C. – Souderton, PA 9/11/18
We are super-happy with the work you did in our basement. Thanks again for all your work. You always made us feel at ease and made the process super-easy. From day one, you listened to our requirements and complied with all of our requests, basically building exactly what we wanted. All of the individuals who came to our door were very professional, friendly, and delivered quality work. We are very happy with the quality of the end product and will be recommending you to anyone else who wants their basement finished.
Carlos M. – Robbinsville, NJ 7/3/18
I just wanted to take the time to give your customer service team at The Basic Basement Co. a thumbs-up. I made contact via the website and got a call back that same day. They were super professional, friendly, and informed. They even moved some things around and arranged for a representative to visit my home that evening for a consultation/estimate.
Andre L. – Princeton, NJ 6/6/18
The Building Inspector gave his approval. He inspected both the framing and the insulation/fire-proofing.
And, the inspector said, “Wow, these guys know what they’re doing!”. He said that all the usual areas that he routinely fails in basements were done properly.
Phil D. – Clementon, NJ 5/24/18
The basement finishing project went very smoothly and on a timely basis! They did exactly what they said in the contact –
they took care of all the permits (building, fire, and electrical), came early each day, and cleaned up nicely when they finished the project. We now have a well built basement. The project manager did a great job managing the project and the production manager always answered the phone or got right back to me – even on her day off – if I had questions.
Belinda M. – Warren, NJ 5/17/18
Everything went great. This is literally the first time I have ever written a review about anything, but felt compelled to do so since the experience was so good. The Basic Basement Co. came highly recommended to us and they did not let us down. The project coordinator was organized, responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the entire process. Every team that came to our house was professional and courteous. Overall, it was a great experience.
Mike M. – Monroe, NJ 4/30/18
The Basic Basement Co. was fantastic from start to finish. The estimate was easy to understand and the
price was reasonable. All workers showed up when they were scheduled and the work was completed quickly and beautifully. Changes and add-ons along the way were handled with ease. With all the troubles people encounter with contractors, it’s nice to find one that was reliable and dependable.
Troy C. – Voorhees, NJ 4/28/18
We are glad that we choose your company and Overall we are very happy on the planning, execution, and outcome of this project.
This shows that you are simply experts in this area and we already recommended you to a couple of our friends.
Please convey our thanks to the entire team for all the help.
Ram B. – Parsippany, NJ 4/18/18
I will have many opportunities for friends to see your company’s work and will definitely recommend The Basic Basement Co. for your seamless follow-through, quality work, and your quick attention to our concerns. You have gone the extra mile on all aspects.
Eliiot J. – Belle Mead, NJ 3/24/18
I just wanted to mention that I couldn’t have been more pleased with how the whole process went. From the estimate, to getting through the municipal red tape, to the quality of the finished basement, you guys were beyond fantastic.
Jack A. – Palmyra, NJ 2/14/18
Just wanted to thank you for the great job the team did in transforming our basement from a storage space into a beautiful living area. A special thanks for guiding us through the process with so much patience. Please feel free to list us as a reference. Take care!
Bob & Michelle A. – Toms River, NJ 2/1/18
We had a full, unfinished basement until we called The Basic Basement Co. They consulted with us and listened to our plans. Their professional guidance through the planning and design phase led us to a stress free experience.
We were extremely pleased with the entire project from start to finish. The quality of materials, work, timeframe for completion, expertise, and professionalism of staff were all exemplary. Communication with our project coordinator was right on. When we had questions during the project, they immediately responded back with answers. The scheduling of carpenters, painters, electricians, plumbers, and township inspections was completed efficiently and all work was done within the timeframe originally agree upon.
We highly recommend The Basic Basement Co. for your home remodeling projects.
Ann & Gary P. – Edison, NJ 1/23/18
This was seriously the easiest construction project I’ve ever done.
I’ve done a bunch of construction and remodeling projects on my house and this was, hands down, a great experience. I will be sure to brag and recommend you guys!
Thanks for everything.
Kim M. – Old Bridge, NJ 1/18/18
Thank you. I have to say your level of organization and communication contradicts every stereotype of contractors I’ve ever heard of. We appreciate it.
Heather H. – Hopewell, NJ 1/18/18
Thank you so much for your help throughout the process. You have been fantastic and it was truly a pleasure working with you. We were more than satisfied with the entire experience and find all the folks professional and very responsive. Much appreciated.
Dave N. – Somerset, NJ 10/18/17
I’d like to take a moment to sincerely thank you for the great work and customer focus when completing our basement. All of you were very professional and responsive – this certainly goes a long way. Thank you!
Anantha K. – Collegeville, PA 10/14/17
Normally when you decide to do a bigger project in your home it comes with stress and moments of frustration, but we experienced none of this working with your company. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all that you did behind the scenes to make sure this project went seamlessly. I have already started recommending The Basic Basement Co. to our friends in town who have been contemplating finishing their basements as well.
Chris B. – East Hanover, NJ 8/31/17
I am very pleased with how the project worked out and would like to thank the consultant for his suggestions on the design. I was also very pleased with the workmanship of the different crews, and in particular with the work of the sheet rock installers and finishing team. Overall, your company did an excellent job. As a retired engineering and construction executive involved in large energy projects, I appreciate how well the overall execution of the work went, and in particular, with your effort in keeping the project on track.
Carl B. – Califon, NJ 7/7/17
I have to say my that husband and I were so impressed by the quality and speediness of the work, I swear if they were not held back by permits (which are needed) for every step performed, they would’ve been done with a 1,500 square foot basement in 4 days maximum. The project from start to finish took three weeks. We had to paint and add carpet, but it was beautiful in the end.
Jennifer J. – Freehold NJ 6/11/17
We are very happy to see the finished basement. It looks wonderful with the closets, new office, full bathroom with shower and marble tiles, and entertainment space.
And, the green paint on walls with cortec vinyl tile flooring gives a rich look!
Thanks again for your timely coordination and ensuring a clean job site after every task.
Ravi and Ahila P. – Highland Park, NJ 5/5/17
Normally, I am a skeptic when it comes to contractors. Many never return calls or show-up, or provide outrageous quotes which can be discouraging in getting work you want done. However, the team at The Basic Basement Co. changed my view. Outstanding and professional does not even begin to describe the attentiveness that The Basic Basement Co. provided during our basement finishing project. Each crew came as scheduled, performed tasks as agreed to in our contract, and cleaned-up after each job, including hauling away garbage.
The overall project cost what we agreed to in the contract. There were no hidden or extra costs. In addition, the different crews came back on a couple of occasions to repair some minor imperfections we found. All of the workers were a pleasure to deal with. My family and I have survived several home renovations over the years; this one was by far the most organized and smoothest! We will definitely consider this company high on our list when we look to renovate our kitchen and bathroom.
Pat and Rafael V. – Middletown, NJ 4/22/17
The Basic Basement Co. finished my basement – I couldn’t have asked for a more professional team.
The communication was excellent throughout the entire process. The installers were all nice, showed up on time, and did great work.
I have zero complaints about them. If you are looking to have your basement finished, I recommend using them.
Brad L. – Budd Lake, NJ 2/10/17
The Basic Basement Co.’s staff was great during the whole process. They execute their jobs with such sincerity and kindness towards their clients – they made this a wonderful experience for us.
Thank you so much!
Patricia M. – Jackson, NJ 11/9/16
Thanks for everything and I really appreciate the smooth process this has been. I have already recommended you guys to a number of friends that were thinking of getting their basement finished.
Suzanne D. – Chester, NJ – 11/8/16
We really enjoyed working with you guys, and we would definitely recommend The Basic Basement Co.
We’re so excited to play and hang out in our new basement!
Kim M. – Willow Grove, PA – 10/29/16
Thanks for your excellent work.
The Basic Basement Co. did an excellent job, and I must commend them for their professional services.
I was an engineering student many years ago, therefore, I can appreciate excellent construction work.
Congratulations to your team of professional and diligent workers. Keep up the good work.
Bryan B. – Robbinsville, NJ – 10/14/16
The Basic Basement Co. estimated the project in a very professional manner, clearly explaining options, describing how the project would appear upon completion, preparing a detailed list of materials needed, and reviewing requirements for electrical, framing, and plumbing. Additionally, there was no pressure on us to accept their estimate.
Execution of work was fantastic! The production manager kept the project running smoothly, planning each phase and ensuring crews completed each phase on time. I haven’t seen another contractor who was as organized. The production manager did a great job showing that The Basic Basement Co. knows what they are doing, and took time to respond to our questions in a timely manner. All materials were ordered and delivered on-time – the coordination of activities was flawless.
The project manager oversaw all work to ensure it was done correctly and to expectations. The crews were very experienced and there weren’t any major issues to resolve. All township inspections passed on first visits. The crews were always on schedule, as well as punctual each day. The quality was flawless. The crews were courteous at all times and the work area was left clean every day.
We strongly recommend The Basic Basement Co. for their professionalism, courtesy, organization, quality of work, and commitment. They did an excellent Job and they make customers proud for hiring them!
Edamadaka & Raj S. – Allentown, NJ – 10/14/16
We cannot thank you enough for all of the work you have done for us. We really are beyond thrilled with your company and everyone we have met along the way….your hard work, constant communication, and reassurance made the entire process super-easy for us.
Rachel G. – New Providence, NJ – 10/10/16
I just wanted to thank you for all of your assistance in getting the basement job done. It was a smooth process and I am really impressed with your company. The work was excellent and it came out better than I ever imagined.
I would certainly recommend your company to anyone interested in doing this type of project. Thanks again for your professional follow up and sincere interest in the project!
Raye Jean L. – Denville, NJ – 7/13/16
Lindsay and I wanted to say thank you for all of the great work on our basement. We are so impressed by the work ethic of each person involved in the process and their professionalism. Everyone worked so hard, and the sheet rock installers raised the bar to a new level.
Everything looks great and we appreciate how organized the process was and the continuous communication.
Seth and Lindsay K. – Fairhaven, NJ – 6/9/16
Thanks to everyone at The Basic Basement Co. for the work completed in our home in Marlton, New Jersey. The process was easy and efficient, and the outcome was excellent.
The entire staff was pleasant and helpful. We will be writing a nice review for Angie’s List, but wanted to acknowledge the work completed and express our appreciation.
We could not have asked for better communication and project management. The staff seemed to care about the job they did, and that is rare in my experience.
My sincere thanks to all who made this the least stressful construction project I have been part of.
Tom L. – Marlton, NJ 4/21/16
It was a pleasure working with your company. You were always there to answer any questions we had and ensure all materials were available to complete the project.
Thank you for going over all the details when we were looking for a company to redo our bathroom, taking all the debris away, and doing such a wonderful job putting in our new tub, vanity, toilet, and especially the stone and tile. The installers were experts and we want them back on any future jobs we have with your company.
Thanks again for all the time you put in on this project and ensuring that every detail was perfect!
Wayne B. – Beachwood, NJ 4/21/16
I just wanted to share my experience with you.
It was a real pleasure to work with your company. I give the team 5 Stars for customer service, promptness, and professionalism.
Sumeet A. – Belle Mead, NJ 4/7/16
I would like to thank the entire team at The Basic Basement Co. for a superb job on refinishing our basement. From the start, the team clearly defined their roles and remained in close contact with me regarding all logistics and construction schedules. From framework, to electrical, to dry wall, to final trim – the workmanship was of exceptional quality and within budget.
Thanks again for making this a very efficient and satisfying experience.
Rob D. – Hackettstown, NJ 4/7/16
You have a great staff and ran the project very efficiently. You always hear nightmare stories about people having work done like this, but your company made this a great experience. You can add us to your reference list, and if we need additional work done, you will be the first to know!
Joe and Linda K. – Barnegat, NJ 2/25/16
It was a pleasure working with you and your staff. You are very organized and professional, and made my basement finishing project a painless experience. I was very impressed with everything, and I will definitely keep you in mind for future work. I also have several neighbors that are interested in finishing their basement, and I will recommend your company.
Thank you so much!
Sal B. – Monroe, NJ 2/24/16
Before starting the project, I requested quotes from other service providers, but The Basic Basement Co.’s price was the most competitive and included more options in their proposal. They understood our needs and designed the basement accordingly, providing a quality service within our budget.
All completion dates for the project were met. The teams were very professional and cooperative. All of our questions and concerns were heard and resolved. All inspections were passed in the first attempt.
The project was completed on time and I am already enjoying my finished basement, thanks to The Basic Basement Co.!
Kapil G. – Bridgewater, NJ 1/13/16
We are very happy with our newly finished basement!
The Basic Basement Co. started the project as scheduled and always showed up on time. I was comfortable with every worker who came into my home – all were very polite and professional. They have crews for each phase of construction, and all worked with precision and efficiency – you can see they all know their trades very well.
There were no surprise charges – they did exactly what they said they would and they were the most reasonably priced service out of all estimates we received.
They were able to schedule inspections faster than I thought, and were ready to start the next phase of the project as soon as an inspection was complete. Town inspectors even complimented their work during my final inspection!
Overall, my entire basement was completed in about a month, and this was over the holidays as well! I would gladly recommend The Basic Basement Co. to any of my friends!
Sue O. – Howell, NJ 1/13/16
The Basic Basement Co. did an excellent job finishing our basement. We now have an awesome, additional 1,100 sq. ft for a playroom, an entertaining space, and relaxing lounge area, and great access to closets, unfinished storage, and a long bench to relax and watch the kids play.
They did a great job with the framing, prepping the walls for paint, and finishing with trim. We went with a solid ceiling instead of a drop-ceiling and they really did an amazing job maximizing space and height. They coordinated all permits and inspections, and they finished the whole project in less than 30 days. I am very happy with The Basic Basement Co. and highly recommend them.
From the start of the project, we felt comfortable with The Basic Basement Co. The design consultant and project management team were professional, friendly, and did not pressure us. They were very clear in the services that would be provided, helped us make good decisions, and were genuinely interested in making sure we got a great space. We passed inspections in less than 30 days after starting the project.
We did our own painting and carpeting. I wish we had done that with them – it would have been easier.
Andrew and Dana C. – Warren, NJ 1/10/16
I know I speak for my wife when I say that this has been a really positive experience with you and your team… the professionalism and reliability has really made us believers in what you do, and you went above and beyond at every turn. Please relay to the rest of the crew!
Dan and Denise C. – Lambertville, NJ 1/9/16
I want you to know we have spent plenty of time in the basement during the past few days and it looks awesome!
The crews did an excellent job, and they miracle workers with how fast they worked! The installation crew was great and had creative ideas on how to utilize space, and they did a wonderful clean-up job too. Please give them our kudos.
John and Kelly B. – Marlton, NJ 11/29/15
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 workmen 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
I just wanted to thank you for your excellent customer service and team’s hard work! The family is very excited and happy to start spending time in our newly renovated basement, which has become our family/entertainment room. Your company did an excellent job on construction and final adjustments for passing inspection.
I will definitely use your company again for future renovation projects.
Dalia and Jason M. – Mount Holly, NJ 9/18/14
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 your company to 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
Our experience with The Basic Basement Co. was extremely pleasant and enjoyable. Our estimator gave us a fair quote, and never pressured us to upgrade beyond our means. We decided on our own to add a full bath based on the reasonable rate that was quoted.
All of the crews – the framers, electricians, plumbers, drywallers, and carpenters – were highly skilled, very friendly, and expert craftsman. I did not have to arrange any sub-contracting on my own as this was all provided as part of the service package.
The Basic Basement Co. arranged for all of the mid-way and final inspections to make sure everything was up to code and given the final seal of approval.
My painting contractor made several comments about what an incredible job the framing and drywall crews did with the tight seams and perfectly straight corners.
The finished product was well worth the wait and beyond our best expectations. We now have a lovely new livable space with plenty of storage going forward. I would recommend this company without hesitation to anyone looking for a basement renovation project.
Suleman and Aisha B. – Montvale, NJ 6/26/14
Thank you, and I want to express my appreciation of the excellent job done by your crew, making a beautiful basement for my home. All of the men were courteous, quiet, and efficient as they went about their work.
Please make sure these individuals are recognized. I want them to know that the quality of the work provided is excellent and it is greatly appreciated.
Vijay M. – Monroe, NJ 6/7/14
I wanted to let you know The Basic Basement Co. did an excellent job on my basement. The whole team was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. The job went as predicted in terms of the timeline and quality of the finished project, which is a huge win for us.
Thanks for everything and if you need a reference don’t hesitate to contact me.
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. Most importantly, you are flexible and able to accommodate our schedule as both of us are working full time. We also enjoyed working with Rick. We can’t wait to share with our friends.
Lewis and Natali T. – Skillman, NJ 4/21/14
Thanks for a great experience. It was smooth from start to finish. Gail was great and always got back to us right away if there was a question. We would definitely recommend your company.
Paul & Erin L. – Hillsborough, NJ 4/18/14

Lars and Christine H. – Jersey City, NJ 4/7/14
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!
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.
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. Glad you were there to keep us informed and manage our expectations! All the best to you and the crew for a wonderful holiday season!
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.
Enid and Bill P. – Monmouth Junction, NJ 12/4/13
Getting your basement done is very exciting, but at the same time it was a headache 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 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.

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 most important – honesty. Also, they were willing to go the extra mile in order to provide us with satisfaction and guarantee a nice job. Your office staff, Gail and Kathy, were always there when needed and addressed all issues and 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, 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 in the contract – we truly appreciated it.
Again, warm regards to you and The Basic Basement Co.’s team for a job well done.
Carolyn and Julio S. – Doylestown, PA 9/18/13
I am really happy with the quality of the work and professionalism your team has shown. Overall, I am very happy that I chose The Basic Basement Co. to finish my basement.

I cannot stop raving about the job you guys did. We use it every day and it has become a room that we cannot believe we lived without. You guys are really super and I know that my neighbors will be just as pleased.
Lee B. – Hackettstown, NJ 9/14/13
I was really impressed by the quality. I also appreciated the time you took to walk me through the project and answer questions, as well as to share some thoughts on how to achieve the best look with the framing. A great team overall.
Karen G. – Raritan, NJ 9/6/13
All of the crew members worked very nicely, on time and in a real professional way. We are very happy with the work and we really appreciate everything.
Mahendra S. – Princeton, NJ 8/31/13

Thanks again for everything, and we won’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends, family, and neighbors.
Amy C. – Chalfont, PA 8/28/13
Looks like the framers are complete with a “job well done”. My wife and I feel that they did an excellent job and the crew was great!

Prasad R. – Newtown, PA 7/20/13

So far, we have been thoroughly impressed with The Basic Basement Co.’s production and timeliness.
Norm N. – Brielle, NJ 7/17/13
Our township passed us for the framing inspection today. The inspector was impressed with the work you guys did!
We are ready for drywall-stage when you are!
Nicolle C. – Collegeville, PA 7/17/13
We can’t thank you enough for your expertise and great work in our basement. Your pricing was fair and uncomplicated and we have told all of our neighbors, friends, and family about your wonderful company.
Many customers usually don’t write letters of praise, but are more likely to write a letter of complaint. We felt we had to let your company know that we’re very pleased with your work. Your company is astounding with 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 hope you are aware of our complete trust and sincerity in respecting your work and continuous care of us even after the job was done.
Peter and Andrea L. – Somerset, NJ 6/25/13
I want to say thank you for making the process easy – including scheduling and processing paperwork. I have contacted many contractors and this has been the easiest by a mile!
Andrew S. – Millburn, NJ 6/18/13
We passed the final inspection today. Thanks for all your help and coordination.
Your crew was excellent. They were on-time, honest, and dedicated workers and I really enjoyed working with them. I would definitely recommend you too many of my friends. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
Hari Y. – Piscataway, NJ 6/9/13
Thanks for all of your help and guidance – it was a pleasure working with you. We are very pleased with the quality of the work.
Thanks and have a great day!
Steve T. – Williamstown, NJ 5/18/13
Thank you for everything! We are so happy with our basement. The work was done timely and in a very professional manner! We couldn’t be happier. Not only was the work done extremely well but the price was affordable for us and the cost was so worth the added living space we now have in our home. We would recommend this company to anyone interested in finishing their basement!
We will send you pictures via email to follow.
Thank you everyone and we wish you all the very best!
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!
Nadine & Bryan R. – Mount Laurel, NJ 3/25/13
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
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!
Tino & Raffaella – South Brunswick, NJ 2/20/13
Cyprian’s carpentry work in my basement project was exemplary and his execution was flawless. Thank you for you outstanding and professional job. It’s exactly what I wanted.
Jennifer S. – Lambertville, NJ 2/20/13
Rick was here today for the final cleanup. We are very satisfied with the quality of the finished product. We especially want to thank you and Rick. We had only a few minor issues and everything was addressed promptly, courteously, and to our satisfaction. Everyone was very responsive.
Jerry L. – Monmouth Jct., NJ 2/12/13
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.
Steve N. – East Brunswick, NJ 1/29/13
Everything was done professionally, and thank you specifically for always being available and responsive. I wish all home services were this good.
Ray M. – Old Bridge, NJ 1/15/13
All 3 inspectors came and we passed our inspections. Thanks for sending Jim in. He is a highly skilled, hardworking guy who is good at fixing things quickly and perfectly. He also helped us sweep away all the debris. Please extend our appreciation to him and the teams that helped us.
Floria S. – Blackwood, NJ 1/10/13
The basement looks beautiful now 🙂 You and your co-workers did a wonderful job! I really appreciate your professionalism, dedication and quality work.
Sean Z. – Somerset, NJ 1/8/13
All of your workers have been extremely professional and I am very satisfied with your work. I would definitely recommend The Basic Basement Co. to other people.
Tom K. – Brick, NJ 1/4/13
It was a pleasure doing business with The Basic Basement Co. All crews were very respectful, on time and kept us completely involved in the construction process throughout the entire project. I appreciate your coordination and constant communication as well to ensure the project ran properly.
We will highly recommend the company to our friends.
Have a great year!
Don B. – Chesterfield, NJ 1/4/13
We want to personally thank you for your dedication to getting our basement done on time. We were very impressed with you, Rick, Mike and The Basic Basement Co.’s contractors, although to be honest we were reluctant at first. You certainly won us over with the quality and dedication to detail.
Thank you very much,
Bob and Regina K. – Cinnaminson, NJ 12/18/12
Thank you and your team for doing a wonderful job even in this difficult time (Hurricane Sandy)! We appreciate the hard work you put into the project!
Ying & Patrick – Morganville, NJ 12/13/12
You have been exceptional in this process and made it a very enjoyable experience. I will make sure to leave some good words about The Basic Basement Co. on Angie’s List.
Vincent & Demmie A. – Princeton, NJ 12/13/12
Thank you so much for all of your help through the process of finishing our basement. The finished product looks amazing (when Dominick was here he took a few pictures so you can see what we did) and I know that my family will spend many happy times there.
You played a large role in helping to make this process so seamless. Your patience with us did not go unnoticed and was very much appreciated!
I wish you and your family a very happy holiday and happy healthy new year!!
Thanks again. Take care.
Katy G. – Randolph, NJ 12/13/12
I wanted to thank you so much for coordinating the design and construction of our basement. We are incredibly satisfied with the finished result. You were professional throughout the process, and you answered every question I had thoroughly and timely. Whenever there was an issue you took care of it right away. If only every contractor worked this way!!!
Ari K. – Plainsboro, NJ 12/9/12
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.
Mike and Sonia J. – Cinnaminson, NJ 12/4/12
Our inspector asked if we would recommend your company and we said yes! He said that he never has problems with your inspections. I’ve already recommended you to friends down the street who are thinking about it.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Rachel S. – Robbinsville, NJ 11/30/12
We are impressed by the team. They worked so efficiently and nicely….
Have a good evening.
Huang L. – Morganville, NJ 10/24/12
We were very happy with the work and the response time you provided was second to none! We would be more than happy to recommend you guys to anyone. It was a pleasure working with you throughout. Thank you so much for such a great job!
Geoff S. – Mt. Laurel, NJ 10/22/12

Thanks for everything. You have been a gem to deal with. Honest and thorough with everything you have touched.

James T. – Washington, NJ 9/19/12
Heather and I would like to thank you and The Basic Basement Co.’s team for a job well done. You did exactly what you said you would do and more. You knocked the job out with quality workmanship and more importantly, within an AWESOME timeframe. We love our new space, as do our friends and children. We’ve referred our friends and family to The Basic Basement Co. already.
Thanks for all your diligence and work.
Karl and Heather K. – Marlton, NJ 9/4/12
Likewise, it was a real pleasure working with The Basic Basement Co. I loved the smooth way and coordination your whole crew worked. I am very pleased with everybody; The Basic Basement Co. has the best of the best. The Basic Basement Co. did not fail my expectations. Todd is a great guy and a very professional salesperson (he opened the door to The Basic Basement Co.), Kathy is very helpful, very professional and I really like her (always pleasant and sweet). Gail, you are a “SUPER START”, you are on top of everything: You know your business and know exactly how to please a customer. The Basic Basement Co.’s crew worked wonderful under your direction. Thanks Gail and The Basic Basement Co. family.
Lucy S. – Hackettstown, NJ 8/10/12
We are very pleased and quite impressed with the overall quality and professionalism that all of your employees exhibited throughout this process. I am shocked with how smooth and timely the basement finishing process went. Thank you for all your help, having you in the office to contact made it that much easier too. Thanks!
Jackie F. – Pennington, NJ 8/10/12

Jared A. V. – Randolph, NJ 7/19/12
Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job everyone did in bringing our basement to life. All the different teams worked very hard and did an exceptional job. They stayed on schedule and everything came into place very nicely.
I appreciate working with you, Gail, as well. Your communication was very responsive and you made sure to work with my schedule to keep things moving along.
We are very excited to start using our new finished basement, so I wanted to thank you and your team for a job well done!

Thank you – very happy with the project. Appreciate your help.
Dan – Robbinsville, NJ 6/2/12
Just wanted to drop you both a quick note of thanks for everything you have done to get our basement finished. It’s done, passed inspection as you know, and looks great! After the wall to wall cabinetry is done, our boxes are unpacked and art hung, we will be sure to invite you over to see everything!
Nicole – Millstone, NJ 5/31/12
Many thanks for coordinating all subcontractor activities, township inspections, and material supplies in a timely manner. We appreciate all your diligent and hard work in completing this project in a timely manner.
I must say your company has been fantastic and very cooperative throughout this process. I knew when Dan walked a 1/2 mile in the snow storm, that there was sincere dedication to getting the job done right.
Stewart – Martinsville, NJ
Thank You. I just want to say many thanks to you and your company for your professionalism and for completing the work per schedule and to our satisfaction.
Ramesh – Bridgewater, NJ
Thank you, you’ve done a great job! We never had such an experience with any contractor.
H. Shah – Robbinsville, NJ
Cathy and I would like to thank you and your entire team for the excellent work in our basement. When Cathy and I discussed a project like this, we had a vision of what the final product would look like and you hope it comes close to your expectations. As we sat with our children and grandchildren over the Christmas holiday, we both agree that our finished basement surpassed our expectations. Thank you.
Starting with Dan and ending with the painting, your staff was very professional. Dan represents your company well and followed up on each phone call and question we had along the way.
Cathy and I look forward to years of enjoyment in our new expanded living area (we now have a hard time calling it a basement).
Walt & Cathy – Somerdale, NJ
Thanks again for making this process so painless and for making our basement look amazing.
Neil – Manalapan, NJ
