The work went very well. Guy was responsive to the initial request to come out and provide an estimate. He arranged a time, was on time for the appointment, and provided his proposal in the time promised. He made suggestions about the design of the project, including helping us to create a larger room than we had planned originally, so that we could fit in a pool table. He also took plenty of time to explain his suggestions for the design and the materials and to answer our questions. His proposal was not the least expensive we received, but was within a range that we felt was reasonable based on estimates from other providers. In the end, we chose him because we felt that he was someone we could work with.
He explained when he would be able to start the job based on his other ongoing projects, and stated clearly exactly what we needed to do to be ready, and by when. He kept us posted throughout the process, and completed the job in a reasonable amount of time. The workmen were pleasant and kept the mess to a minimum.
We wanted to do our own painting, which is unusual, but he worked with us so that we could do that and save a little money.
One of the windows that was installed was defective, and he took care of ordering and installing the replacement.
He was always responsive to any questions in person or over the phone, and would get back to us quickly if we had to leave a message.
Overall it was a pleasant experience, and the work was very well done. We are happy with our finished room.

1Matt and his coworker were professional, respectful and hardworking. They checked and rechecked all doors for proper installation and had us check everything along with them and explained what they were doing and why. ANY QUESTIONS were answered and they cleaned up after they were through sweeping and vacuuming. Very pleasant workers and we are having them back in SEPTEMBER to create a playroom/family room and bathroom in our basement.

The area in which the construction was to be done was full of "storage" items. Having recently broken my ankle, I was challenged to move the various storage items. J & T stepped up to the task and offered to take all of my stuff to a nearby storage locker I had rented. In addition, I had three huge bookshelves full of books I intended to donate to my local library. Again, J & T took all of the books out of my house and delivered them to the library. The work crew was wonderful. Very respectful, even knocking on the interior door that leads downstairs before they would enter my second floor. I also had a medical emergency while the crew was here (allergic reaction to medication). When they became aware of my distress, they helped me to a comfortable position and waited with me until the ambulance arrived to take me to the hospital. I am particularly thrilled with the bathroom. The tile work is absolutely beautiful. J & T worked with me to choose the tile and cabinet, and created a lovely bathroom (much nicer then the others in my home). The crew was completely trustworthy. I had to leave the house several times for DR appointments, and even was hospitalized for a few days. The crew continued with their work, and I never had any concern about them being there alone. I couldn't recommend a better company. If you have projects that you want done, definitely call J & T design for quality, professional work.

Danfer is wonderful to work with. He is a true professional at all times and his crews are prompt and courteous. Danfer listened to all our needs and gave us options we had never thought of. His ideas and design were wonderful. We interviewed 4 different contractors and his design by far was the best and his price was significantly less than all the rest. He started the job on time and h is crews work very hard. We had a few problems that were dealt with quickly and professionally. He was always willing to work with issues that arose, even if the issues were of our making. For example, once the walls were painted, we weren't happy with one of the colors and he quickly had that wall repainted.The job did run past the estimated completion date because Danfer needed his crews on another job and we were out of town for vacation. Also, permits and inspections held thinks up a bit. We love our basement and everyone who sees it is amazed. They all want to live in our basement! We would absolutely use h iim again.

The builder agree to a contract in mid May and the project was set as a start date of a few weeks. A few weeks went by and the project didn't start yet and the reason was because the town did not complete a permit for the project. The project then got delayed a few more weeks because we had a planned event/company at our house. The project then got pushed off for another few weeks because the contractor had other projects/work started. The project then officially got started on the weekend of

13th which is close to 2 months after the contract date.
The excavation work went quick and was well done. The next step of the project however didn't get underway for another week. The inspector approved the layout of the footing and the cement was ordered and delivered. The contractor then took another week before getting the forms setup for the new poured wall. The forms however were 4' forms that were joined together to make the 8' wall. The inspector then was scheduled to come out however the inspect never showed up. My thoughts are that the inspector was never contacted. Another few days were lost waiting for the inspector. Inspector then signed off on the project and a few more days went by before the cement was delivered for the walls. The forms were then pulled off and the project was a mess. The forms did not stay together and the wall pushed out in a few areas. The poured wall also was not smooth and in appearance it looked horrible. The remaining clean up of the forms took days and another week and a half went by before the contractor prepared to

out the blocks for the top 4' of the foundation.
Once the corner block work was completed the contract planned to rest the house on the blocks and move the support

from the inside so the basement slab could be broken up and taken out so a new level slab could be poured. Another week went by and the slab in the basement was not broken up. The contracted then spoke about the slab portion of the project costing more when the slab was already included in the contract, which he then tells me he lost. The following weekend he broke up the basement slab and poured a new one. A few more days passed before he showed up to continue to the block work. He continued to mention that the additional basement slab would cost $1000 additional.
He showed up at 7 PM most evening now and was no longer putting in a days worth of work and only a few hours of work at a time. The remaining block work he said he could finish up in a few days and he would like for us to make the final payment. We said no and gave him half the remaining and a few more days went by with no additional work done. I then asked him to at least show up and please backfill the hole because we need to get our gas turned on because we're sick of taking cold showers and he then showed up at 9PM to backfill and was clearly in a rush and broke our cable line while trying to backfill in the dark. He told me that the backfill can't be done till the town engineer comes back out and signs off on the poured wall. I asked him at least twice if we're waiting on the town for anything because the project was not making any progress. He said no and now he tells me yes the day I want it backfilled. He also came out the night before and put tar on the back of the poured wall which was clearly needed before scheduling another inspection and should have been done the day after the forms came down. This clearly wasn't a priority for him because that should have happened last week along with the inspection.
He then returned to complete the block work, again in the evening, and only did a few blocks and still did not finish. I then asked him to just flatten the yard so we can get back to landscaping and told him to not finish the block work because we planned to redo all the blocks because the work is sub quality. I also told him that I'd like to agree to not pay any overage for the slab in the basement because that was part of the contract. He argued that it was not and he's at a

for that time and cement. He clearly did not plan to keep to the contract if he already lost it only a week after we signed the contract and gave him a deposit.
We have now taken out the 4' of block foundation and rebuilt the new block work in 2 days. This project should have taken no more than a week or two and due to the contractors poor time management, we suffered and were inconvenienced. We spent weekend out of our home so the project could get a lot of time/progress and after returning late Sunday night we would find that hardly a full days worth of work was done. One evening we also returned to our septic not being hooked back up and he had to come out to our house at 9 PM so we could use the toilets. The project was not completed and I had to ask him to not put in the last 4 blocks which was taking him close to a week. It's now Aug 14th which is 4 months after signing the contract and 1 month after officially breaking ground. This project took double the amount of time and was very poorly done.

After looking around for four years and interviewing a number of companies, we decided to go with

at
Columbia Falls Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
and we are very glad we did. From the beginning, he listened to us about our vision for the basement and laid out a fantastic design that included elements that both my wife and I were looking for. While he was not the cheapest bid, he was reasonable in price, very highly rated on Angie's list and we loved the basement that he completed for another customer. As a result, we decided to go with him.

is very good at communicating with his customers, and was patient and thorough when talking with us about his timeline and what he needed from us. So important was good communication to him that he fired two sub-contractors that he had used in the past because they were not responsive to our phone calls or his. I was very impressed in this respect.
He got started framing out the basement relatively quickly and the work progressed at a good pace. He regularly showed up when subcontractors were in to both check their work and make sure we were happy. The basement was also left as clean as could be reasonable expected at the end of each day.

was very good about showing us the problems (improperly supported I beam in the basement and moldy wood under the siding because of a lack of proper flashing) and helped us decide on the appropriate fix while trying to stay within the budget. They then made the repairs, showing us along the way what they were doing.
After building a custom entertainment center,

and

helped hang the TV and hook up the components. They even brought in a cleaning service to clean up the basement and the main level when everything was done.
They helped us anticipate issues and solve them before they became a problem. Their design suggestions were top notch, they were trustworthy and courteous and they earned my trust (which is not always easy). Best of all though, their work was fantastic and I believe that they deserve the title "Craftsmen."
If you are thinking about having work done, call them in for an interview, you will not regret it!

was an absolute professional in our deck install, especially given the complexity of the one we installed. Given that it was installed over a flat roof, we had a specialty decking and railing that needed to be installed to meet code. In both situations, he was great in working with the suppliers and railing specialist. He's reliable, and knows what he is doing. All in all, great work and would hire him again for our projects.

was instrumental in the exterior renovation project of our circa 1930's Cape Cod Revival style home and detached garage. He was very professional with a detailed written contract and a fixed price with no

accommodated our preference to complete the work with a city-required permit, despite the added hassles it entailed. Work was completed to my satisfaction down to the last details and the cost was reasonable, and as stated in the estimate. Would recommend highly.
