    5.0 Ken B. Pittsburgh, PA

    Basic Concept designed and built a deck in our back yard and did an entire kitchen remodel for our home. We had some different ideas when we first contacted Charles but he was able to see what was possible and make great suggestions to fit our wishes, space, and budget. All of the workers that came to our home were very skilled, polite, and professional. They made sure that all work was done completely and correctly, no shortcuts. Charles was very involved in every aspect of the project. He is a great communicator and coordinated all the work and deliveries very efficiently. While I'm sure the size of our kitchen and deck would seem insignificant to some, we were made to feel like VIPs. Everyone treated our home with dignity and respect. High quality products and workmanship. Our house looks great. We are very pleased. We highly recommend Basic Concept.

    Superb workmanship from Basic Concept Interiors, who were able to incorporate design elements that other contractors declined to implement. Basic Concept assisted me in remodeling and renovating a century old house bath from a tub/shower to a shower. Their care of my property and fastidiousness during the construction was greatly appreciated.

    This company did a great job on our Bathroom. They were prompt and upfront regarding costs. They worked fast and the job was completed soon that I anticipated. I would recommend this company.

    We had a terrible experience with this *design* and build firm. I had posted a detailed review on another recommendation site and then received a letter from their attorney threatening to sue me if I did not take it down. Makes me wonder if their reviews on these sites are not skewed by similarly aggressive action with other unhappy customers? Suffice it to say, our interactions with them left us to question their honesty and integrity, and we decided to end our work with them a few months into the interaction, even though that forced us to move into a temporary condo and restart the project with another builder. You have been warned. Hire at your own risk.

    Response from Company:

    These clients were the most deceitful our firm had ever seen in over 40 years of being in business. They misled us about their budget. The husband was so condescending to his highly educated physician wife we found it unbearable being around the husband. His arrogance and sense of entitlement was more than we were able to deal with. We terminated our contract with them. Not to mention, they had to move into temporary accommodations because they could not make decisions and took three months to pick kitchen cabinets. The other builder was an associate of ours and we later found out they were 150K over budget and six months behind from their move in date. Our 40 years in business speaks for itself................

    The General Contractor was very good at working with our schedule, and when a problem arose with initial plumbing installation he immediately took responsibility and brought the plumber and tilers back to fix the problem at no cost to us. A special thanks to John and Vince, who did a beautiful job on the tile installation.

    They worked around my schedule and they were very professional.

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
