exceeded my expectations on this remodel. They were professional and so easy to work with. There" are one main person you will interact with his name is (
) .
who you will meet initially. Very warm, friendly personality.
got my vision for the basement remodel and created a floor plan rendering within a couple of days of our meeting. He’s not an architect but you won’t need one with
He’s the “creative” so I stayed in touch with him regularly on some of my unique requests like a gym and black dropped ceilings. he also is the owner of the company . He ensures the project is running smoothly and made sure the budget was in line, a crucial piece. I can’t tell you how many times contractors would just request checks every few days and you didn’t know when they would end or in some cases when they were coming back to the project after receiving a check. This is an organized operation. You will place a deposit, and then there are three timed installments. You will also need to pay for your permits, though they will submit this info for you. Yes, I spent a bit over budget as I decided to remove two steel beams and made other add’l requests but
kept me in the loop so I didn’t experience sticker shock price . There was no delaying of the project once it started and the basement was completed in about 6 weeks (inclusive of additional time for special orders). the own of the company is also involved in the remodeling. He can do just about anything you can envision. He came early, left late, and sometimes worked over the weekend. His work ethic is unbelievable and he really goes out of his way to ensure you’re pleased with everything. The whole team (including others that helped) is really top notch. If you’re interested in a remodeling project, be proper to have a great experience with this contractor. they are very fast once the work begins and will deliver what your expect your place to be.

"Some of the finishing wasn't perfect, but they stuck to budget and were less expensive than competitors and did it on time. I found some of the finishing touches to lacking.

Why you should hire a pro to finish your basement

If you’re debating on whether to finish your basement yourself or hire a contractor, read what our experts had to say. Your life could depend on it.

Basement Remodeling

Get use out of every square inch of your house and add value to your home by finishing your basement space. Remodeling your basement can add a family room, in-home theater, kid's play area or a guest suites for the in-laws.

Finishing your basement? Don’t forget to look up: the ceiling is an important component in the design.

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!
?
There are two sides to this and everyone will have an opinion.  I can tell you that from a contractor's point of view a customer that is up front with me is much easier to work with and the entire experience is much more pleasurable to all parties involved.  If you treat your contractor like there's always something to hide from him expect the same in return.  A good contractor is going to take your budget into consideration and make recommendations based on that budget.  When possible, he's going to estimate the work 10-20% under your target to leave room for the unexpected.  With any remodeling work, there's always the possibility and likelihood that there will be surprises that will have to be added such as mold damage, improper existing framing, etc.  The cushion allows room for the project cost to grow without going over your budget.  If no problems are found and you decide to spend that money some of the final finishes can be upgraded or other projects added.

Another good arguement for disclosing your budget to your contractor is to save you both some time and aggrevation.  You may have a $10,000 budget and want $30,000 worth of work.  Wouldn't you like to know your desires aren't possible before you get your hopes up or spend money on design fees for plans you can't afford?  Likewise, the contractor doesn't want to put in the hours of calculating the estimate only to find out it was all for nothing or that he has to refigure for a much lower cost after pricing what you specified.

Be fair and honest with your contractor if you expect the same respect in return.  You'll get a lot more out of it with the right contractor.

Herlonginc's answer stated that it is not the contractor's job to pay for materials and labor to do the job. I say baloney - a reputable, established contractor has the funds (or a business operations line of credit) to "carry" the job between interim or partial payments, each of which should be keyed to completion of distinct easily measured mileposts in the job, and for a homeowner I would say should be in not more than 20% increments for jobs exceeding a week or so. For shorter jobs, then an initial payment, 50% completion, and completion would be normal. His cost of carry funds is part of his cost of doing business, and is figured as part of his overhead.Bear in mind when he is buying materials and paying labor, his materials he typically pays for on a 10-30 day invoice, and his labor typically a week or two after they work, so he is not really "fronting" that much money if you are giving him weekly or biweekly interim payments, on a typical residential job.

If he does not have the funds to buy materials (excepting possibly deposit on special-order or luxury items, which still typically are 10-30 day invoiceable to him) and hire personnel then he is a fly-by-night operation, and he should not be bidding that size job. You should never (other than MAYBE an earnest deposit of not more than the LESSER of 10% or $5000) let the payments get ahead of the approved/inspected work progress - typically payment should be 10-20% BEHIND the progress, with at least 10% retained at the effective end of work until final inspections and completion of the final "punchlist".

That promotes rapid continuation of the work, discourages the all-too common nightmare of contractors taking on more work than they can handle so they leave your job for weeks or months to go work on someone else's job (frequently to start that someone else's new job so he can get the job), and does not leave you out a tremendous amount of cash if he does not finish and you have to hire another contractor to finish the job. Remember, if you have to hire a new contractor to finish the job, he will charge you a lot more than the original bid to finish someone else's unfinished mess.

This may seem cynical, but having started in the construction business about 50 years ago and seeing the shenanigans that a lot of contractors pull you cannot be too safe. You have to remember contractors are like any other people - I would say maybe 10% are outright crooks, another 25% or so will pull a fast one or overcharge if the opportunity presents itself, maybe 30% will do the work but not any better than they are forced to, about 25% are good conscientious reputable workmen, and the last 10% or so are really spectacular - conscientious, fair, and efficient craftsmen. This top 35% are the only ones you should have bidding in the first place. Therefore, only get bids from long-term reputable firms (so you shake out the marginal short-timers with less experience and also generally less ability to finish the job on budget and schedule), only those that have good RECENT references, and preferably with excellent word-of-mouth recommendation from people you know and trust. That way, you are starting right off with the cream of the crop, so hopefully whichever one bids low should be a good choice.

NEVER start with bids, then check the references of the low bidder - why even consider a vendor or contractor who you do not have faith in from the start ? Get references and short-list you possibles BEFORE you ask for bids.

Low bids - that is another matter - commonly the low bidder is NOT who you want, especially if he is significantly lower than several others, which might mean he is desperate for work, made a math error, or did not correctly figure the entire scope of work. You want a reasonable bid with someone you connect with and trust - that is worth a lot more in the success of the job than the absolute lowest bid.

You should always get a set of print and pull a permit when remodeling you home. It is a good thing that you want to be involved in your project. I do have some reservation about the electrical work. There is a lot at risk with doing the work yourself. If the house burns down you will never get the insurance money, unless your a certified electrician. Now of days 90% of home fires are blamed on electrical problems because the insurance company is to lazy and cheap to investigate the true problem. Also find out if the city you live in will allow you to perform the work. Make sure you coordinate your subs to have the proper time and space to perform their job. You don't want people working on top of each other. If you order all you materials make sure everything is there before you start your project. Have your subs check for proper and full items to be installed. Make sure every sub has a working set of prints. Make sure you have all the demo done before your subs show up to work. Schedule your plumber first, do any final framing or electrical work while you wait for inspection. Electrical inspection next followed by framing, insulation, and wallboard. All subs must get a final inspection on the job before you (the GC) can call in your final inspection.

I would call back

to do any remodeling job in my property as I have found him to be meticulous, polite and easy to deal with. The construction started sometime in August of 2014, and since, permit had to be pulled by

and his brother
Mebane Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
are both hands-on in the general contracting and they both over-see all the remodeling work done to my property. I have often asked for their opinion with ideas of certain layout, and both of brothers were very good in their feed-back. The remodeling estimate includes tear down, reconstruction of assign/specified areas, framing, labor cost of upgrade to bathroom/kitchen/flooring. Materials like kitchen cabinets, tiles, toilets and flooring are provided by me.
I highly recommend

and his brother,
Mebane Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
to any bids you may have in your property. They are reasonable in their costs and their work quality is excellent. Give them a phone call and get them over to give you an estimate of the work and ask them to outline what is part of the price estimate. At least, that is how I approached the remodeling project before I awarded them the job.

First the demolition process was scary but rami made it very comfortable. He knew exactly how to set up the home. It was surprisingly clean and they got to the build quickly. I could live in the home no problem. Then the buying process was easy. No headache. They helped me completely with every item. Amazing eye for beauty. The last few weeks went fast and now it's amazing. Thank you so much

Less than 3 months after providing this work, the flashing that had been replaced became dislodged from the roof. it has been hanging from the roof and every time the wind blows it bangs against a bedroom window making it impossible to sleep. Despite several calls the contractor over more than a week, we haven't heard back. Unfortunately we can't recommend them based on the poor quality of the work and lack of responsiveness. Additionally, it's unclear whether or not they are properly licensed to do business. Although they print a DCRA number on their receipt, that number is not in DCRA's online database, suggesting it has lapsed or it is intended to mislead.
