Purchased new home with "unfinished" basement. Original home builder cost to complete/finish basement was in excess of $50,000. Based on excellent reviews on Angie's List and the Better Business Bureau, my wife and I contacted Finishing Touches Construction, Inc., for an estimate. Mr. Roger Garcia, owner of Finishing Touches Construction, met with us in person, inspected the basement and we discussed all floor plan options. We accepted Mr. Garcia's cost estimate of $34,000 to finish the basement. The total cost included: residential building permit application & inspections, preparation and waterproofing basement walls, framing, dry wall, plumbing, electrical wiring, custom wood trim to include - wood casing around various room entrances, crown molding, custom baseboards, 8' doors, one set of all glass french doors, installation of new HVAC system and painting. Purchases not included in the original cost estimate, but installed by Finishing Touches, included a frameless shower stall, bathroom shower and floor tiles, ceiling fans, bathroom vanity cabinet and mirror. All the different trades workers who worked on the project were skilled, prompt and courteous. Mr. Garcia kept us informed on the projected work schedule and visited our home on a frequent basis to monitor the work progress. We did not encounter any major problems during the construction and all finished work was approved by Mecklenburg County. We love our basement! Family and friends are impressed with the quality of the work and will contact Mr. Garcia for future home work projects. Upon request, we can forward photos of basement to any Angie's List member.
