    Customer Testimonial

              We needed to add extra space to our home. We decided to add a bedroom, bathroom and family room. We chose First Buffalo Total Basement Finishing because their products were the only mold resistant products we found on the market. Our crew was great and paid great attention to detail. We love the way the basement looks now! Our basement flooded during a storm after our basement was finished. Because the products were designed for basements, we had no problem with clean up & no mold concerns. We are so happy that we chose First Buffalo for our basement!
