    5.0 Andrew T. Independence, OH

    John was recommended to us by a family member. After getting multiple quotes and design ideas we hired John and his team to finish our basement and could not be more pleased. He was extremely professional, responsive and easy to work with while also being cost efficient. We would go back to him and his team for any remodel effort we have going forward. We would recommend him for any similar project.

    5.0 Sandy P. Hinckley, OH

    Good communication, perfect for basement project... cost effective

    5.0 Debbie Z. North Royalton, OH

    We had them to do a complete remodel of our basement and they did a wonderful job! I also had them install all new 6 panel doors , trim and molding upstairs. John and his crew were always professional!

    5.0 Laura C. Hudson, OH

    Will definitely use them again. John provided professional quote and drawing. Kept me informed about project timeline and his team was great when I had questions or minor changes. Project looks great!

    4.5 Beth W. Medina, OH

    We hired JP Grabenstetter after getting several quotes, The project was top notch. They showed up on time and if for some reason something had changed it was always communicated to us.

    5.0 John C. Strongsville, OH

    JP Grabenstetter responded to initial inquiry quickly did physical assessment and provided a detailed quote in writing along with drawing within two days. When construction started they brought five employees for the rough in. Three for the drywall and three painters. All trades were timely friendly and professional. I would definitely use them for future projects.

    We hired JP Grabenstetter after receiving three (3) quotes from contractors referred by friends. After reviewing the reviews here on Home Advisor, we felt they were the best option for basement remodeling. JPG delivered the most detailed quotation of all four quotes received. John was very good to work with from the time he first came to look the job over all the way through to completion. He explained the process they followed and the timeline. Since he was backed up with other work, we had to wait our turn in his schedule, which was not an issue for us. John's crew started right about when he said they would show up to get started and each trade came in exactly when he said they would come in. If I have any negatives about JPG, it would be the electrical work. We had detailed drawings prepared by an architect and John's crew worked off a very rudimentary drawing prepared by JPG. In the bedroom, we wanted 2 electrical outlets located on one wall such that they would be behind future night stands on either side of the bed. This was missed and I didn't catch it until the drywall was installed. We eventually worked around this. The other minor issue was a electrical box on the wall behind our wet bar. It was installed slightly tilted, which was exacerbated when I added a backsplash to that wall. Minor eyesore. Maybe it can be fixed?? The only other snafu, and not JBG fault was the cabinet supplier (who we had used in our previous house and is very good) ordered our cabinets in the wrong stain color. This caused a 2 week delay until the correct cabinets could be manufactured and shipped to the site. This also pushed the granite countertop delivery back, so a 6-week timeline ended up being 8-weeks but again, not caused by JPG. As a post note, one of our neighbors came to see our finished basement and loved it so much, he hired JPG for his basement finishing project. We heartily endorse JP Grabenstetter for your basement finishing project.

    5.0 Bryan D. Brunswick, OH

    They were top notch. John came up with a couple of extra ideas that made our basement, kitchen and space that was being wasted upstairs into more productive areas. This really added more overall storage. The crew came in and got the job done. They also cleaned up after each day. We hired John and his crew a second time a couple of years later. They were quick and we were really impressed with the quality of their work.

    4.5 John R. Wadsworth, OH

    Great experience.

    5.0 Alex A. Macedonia, OH

    We hired John out of 5 different contractors. There were several reasons why, but let me list just few. 1. He was the only one came back to us with very professionally looking quote. It had computer made draw of a basement and detalied break down of price and payments. 2. He was responding very promptly and if delay was occuring he would notify us was ahead. 3. We ran into some financial problems before starting and he waited entire year and still came back to us. Others would just ignore us. 4. His staff was very friendly and professionally appearing. They would always come in company outfit which makes you feel that they are proud of their company. 5. We have 4 little kids and they always consider this during work time: kept noise to a minimum during kids' nap time and keeping house very clean. And lastly... 6. His supplier was worth hiring too for a great price and quality. If I have another project, John will be on the top of my list.
