    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!

    Our customers out of East Aurora, NY needed more family & recreational space for their expanding family. They already had a HUGE unfinished basement which has more than enough space for their entire family and for guests to be over.

    Afterwards when our project was completed they told us that we more than exceeded their expectations for a basement finishing project and that they will recommend us to anyone they know with an unfinished basement.
