    We just had our basement finished. Not re-finished but finished for the first time. The house was built in 1924 with a dirt floor in the basement and low hanging pipes, overall a very challenging job. We wanted to turn it to a family room with a full bath, laundry room, closets, etc. Joe's guys (Chico and Javier) did a fantastic job. They are knowledgeable, thorough, thoughtful, and creative. We would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

    The clean-up left much to be desired. 12 out of 16 recessed light bulbs were covered with debris from construction material that I was unable to remove. The workers put them back up that way. Also one of the hats was missing & not replaced. Aside from this the, quality of the work was good. Too bad they chose to leave with these and several other annoyances. R.Lucas

    Charlie and his team did a thorough and 1st class professional job from estimate to full restoration of our basement. I would hire him again in a second!

    During the initial quote process Tom was very knowledgeable and put together a great plan for basement remodeling. My basement was transformed from the style of 50's to a modern basement that I can enjoy with my family. The staff was friendly and worked diligently 6 days a week without interrupting to my day. I received updates through the project from Tom on the progress. The company provided completive rates and this was the best money spent. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for quality work, your will not be disappointed.

    High quality work, pleasant to deal with and good advice on design/materials. Project took longer than anticipated to complete, but that mostly reflected impact of the August hurricane and the popularity of this firm.

    Joe and his crew are true professionals who did an excellent job on our basement. The entire team from the Better Basement Company are extremely skilled and do quality work. We loved their work so much that we already referred them to friends of ours for two other projects.

    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)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
