About the Owner

Mike Werbowski, owner of Total Basement Finishing of Western NY

Mike Werbowski

Mike Werbowski has been in basement waterproofing and remodeling industry since 1990. Before starting Total Basement Finishing of Western NY, Mike owned a successful basement waterproofing company and was later a manager of one of Western New York's most respected waterproofing companies. He is also educated in interior design.

Mike has spent a lot of time in basements and has seen just about any problem you can think of. Knowing the challenges and having seen remodeled basements ruined over and over again by water and mold, Mike has teamed up with Total Basement Finishing to offer homeowners a waterproof basement finishing solution.

When he's not helping homeowners transform their basement, Mike enjoys spending time outdoors with his family going camping, hiking and skiing.
