I started this review several months ago and never finished it. However, since
is about to complete our second project together, it's time to get it published.
We heard of FBCI through one of my wife's co-workers that had used
to finish a basement. It seems that almost all his projects come through word of mouth referral. After seeing the finished product, I can see why. You will not find a better combination of quality and price than
. I bid the basement project out with 3 other A rated contractors on Angie's List. FBCI was the lowest bid by approximately 10%.
Some specific things that went well:
1. He was able to find doors and trim that exactly matched the rest of the house (built in 2007)
2. Workers mostly entered and exited through our basement windows to minimize dust and disturbance to the main living space
3. The stairwell to the basement was finished by the home builder and the drywall work was bad. After
painted it, it still looked bad. During the touch-up phase, he had his own drywall guy come back out (Melvyn--who is nothing short of an artist. I'm not kidding.). They redid the entire stairwell because they "couldn't, in good conscious, leave it like that." There was no charge for it.

A lot of general contractors use "Subs" for portions of the project, which can be worrisome if someone doesn't take ownership. I put "Subs" in quotations on purpose, however. The guys
uses are people he has known and worked with for most of his adult life. It's more like an extended family and they clearly all have a vested interest in doing things the right way, being respectful, and making the customer happy. I certainly am.
Our basement is better than great. I'm also a real estate investor and recently picked up a house to rehab and flip. My first call was to
. He's wrapping that project up now and it is receiving effusive praise from neighbors, realtors, friends, and potential buyers. I couldn't be happier.
If you're considering a basement project, you owe it to yourself to give
a call.

Ever since we moved into our house almost eight years ago, we had wanted to finish our basement. It was in a semi-finished state when we moved in, but nowhere near where we wanted it to be. Finally things came together to allow us to get it completely finished. We sought four estimates. In terms of price,
's came in 3rd. The one less than his was from a contractor we had worked with before who does excellent work, but we felt that with this project,
knew best what we wanted and it also seemed as though he would just be easier to work with on a project of this magnitude, so we chose him.
We can't say enough good things about him and his work. He worked by himself for nearly everything except for the drywall which he subcontracted to a crew that he has worked with for many years. However, even though it was subcontracted, he was still personally involved in the installation of the drywall himself. We are very happy with our basement and are certain we made the right choice in choosing
. We look forward to hopefully working with him again in the future!

Everything went very well. We live in a very old house which involes some creativity and thought they work hard to make sure things work for the age of the house. We have been very pleased. The best things about

, excepting his diverse skills and reasonable pricing, is that he knows when to get in a subcontractor for expertise and he NEVER leaves a mess. He is also very cost conscious.

did a great job, and was very easy to work with. He helped with some key design details, and was always flexible and responsive. Job took a little longer than initially expected, but we did add a few projects that took additional time. Very happy with the final product, and
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
strongly recommend him to others.

In spite of the fact that I have been a Realtor for 38 years and have had much experience involving all types of builders, contractors and home repair handymen, I made a bad mistake when I was selling my own home at 7406
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
Blvd. Indianapolis, recently and initially hired a contractor who had been working on another home across the street in my neighborhood and seemingly had been doing acceptable quality work. He talked a great game and assured me that he and his crew could and would handle the many repairs I needed before the closing. But then he started a few of them, didn't show up again for several days, needed part of the money for materials, but then didn't spend it on materials, and the necessary work was not getting done. Suddenly I realized that the way it was looking, we would have to postpone our closing and one on the home we were buying because the repair program was completely bogged down and the contractor I had counted on wasn't even returning my calls. While checking on new windows at Menards, I was fortunate to ask for names of several installers they knew about - one of which was

of

, and I noted that as the salesman handed me his contact information he commented "Oh, and here's

" in a way implying he might be someone a little special. I also noted that
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
was a member of Angie's List and the Better Business Bureau, and that he seemed to be able to do about all types of repairs that I was needing. Picking up the phone and calling

may have been the best decision I ever made.Suddenly I was going from one of the worst contractors I had ever met to the best one I could have found.

came out - all 6'7" of him (he was a very good offensive

Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's quiet low-key professional demeanor. He quickly grasped our increasingly desperate need to get a lot of repair work done fast, told us the things he believed he could get done, suggested another company or two for other projects in order for us to save time and money, and he went to work. I fired the original contractor.

took over the show, brought in friends and contractor associates, and re-arranged his own schedule as much as possible to give us all the time he could. I never saw a man who worked so hard and also so efficiently. In his hand, a

They were going to do

work for me. I did chose another company that came with more things. Everything was good except they did not talk about how they were going to drain any water in my

Work started January 11 and was completed on March 11th. Everything went very smoothly. I never would have thought there was anything that could be done to improve and expand our tiny kitchen, but they transformed it into my dream kitchen. We're very happy with the outcome.

They do an excellent job. He took care of the problem. It was a fantastic result. The price, value, professionalism, that he did what he said he was going to do, that he was on time, the condition of the home, and that he made sure the subcontractors were there impressed me.

Initially connected with
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
to come and look around, find out what we wanted and give us ideas.
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
plans out and got ideas back to us very quickly. Once we had a basic plan in place we began thinking of tweaks to the plan -
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
was very accommodative and
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
up 5 or 6 plans before we had one we felt sure about.
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
provided a very detailed estimate a few days later. We were very impressed with the sales and customer service delivered by
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
.

Once we decided to move ahead with the project we met with
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
, the owner of the company. He came over and walked through the basement and answered all the questions we had. We agreed to the project and a date was set. We were on a tight timeline and
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
assured us he'd be able to meet our schedule needs.

Before the project began we went to Affordable Kitchens and Baths in Carmel at
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's recommendation.
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
at Affordable was great to work with - we went in with a budget that was given to us by
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
and
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
helped us with everything that we needed to select - carpet and tile, counteracts, cabinetwork, grout, etc. We actually made our choices really easily and were very happy with the selection inside our budget and chose to upgrade a few things (carpet was the biggest.) We had a miscommunication with
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
about some things and when we got the "change order" for the items we chose at Affordable I was a bit concerned... I spoke with
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
about my concerns and he was wonderful and we worked through the miscommunication in a way that was very generous of Affordable and with that they've earned my business and recommendation to others forever. Thanks,

The actual construction got going right on time. I really think a huge point of difference is that
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's employees are the guys who actually do the work. They are not hiring a team of subcontractors for each task and we got to know the members of
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's team over the 6 or so weeks of the project and we felt very comfortable having them in the home. In fact, due to some unexpected circumstances we were both away from the house for some time and we felt fine having the
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
team there when we were gone.

Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
showed up each morning right on time and left each day right on time. They were very careful about trying to prevent dust and construction dirt from getting into the rest of the house. Of course a good amount of dust (especially drywall dust) did end up coating the rest of the house because its impossible to keep it contained. I really appreciated that
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
had his cleaning person help clean up the rest of the house when the project was done - really thought that was above and beyond. The
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
team made themselves as little of a
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
as possible - they never once used the restrooms in the house - and went in and out of the basement window for much the project rather than using the front door. All in all they were very easy to work with in that regard.

As to the quality of the work - I believe it was all top notch. Everything looks very good and they addressed any small concerns we had right away. We have had a couple of minor issues come up since the project was finished -
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
came out right away and took care of them for us (I mention the minor issues not as a complaint - issues inevitably come up on a project of this size - I mention it to highlight how good they've been even in follow-up.)

So, in summary - great work, good people, great customer service and made the project as easy on us as I think it could have been. They were not the cheapest bid we received, but I think you get what you pay for and we are very pleased we chose to work with
Indianapolis Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. Thanks, guys.
