              Todd, the Design Specialist that we met with, was a pleasure to work with. I really like the products that he showed and he sold us on. Both my husband and I were very pleased with the overall communication and information about our project. Daryl and his son Michael did our installation and they were excellent workers. They were very prompt, rarely took breaks and quietly, effiently worked hard every day.

    Making New Home Dreams Come True In Orchard Park, NY

    A couple had just moved their family into a new home in Orchard Park, NY when they contacted Total Basement Finishing of WNY. They loved their upper floors but wanted their basement to be a better space for them. They had hopes of making their new basement into a home entertainment space with a home gym area. And after meeting with our Design Specialist Todd they found that we could help them make their hopes for their new home come into reality. Our EverLast Wall Systems, Thermal Dry Flooring, and a painted ceiling with recessed lights finished the look and makes the basement look like such a modern space.

    New Floors In Orchard Park, NY

     

    In the spring of 2020 Total Basement Finishing of WNY got a call from a couple in Orchard Park, NY who had seen a friend's basement that we had previously finished. They told us that they wanted their basement to look as good and be as functional in their lives as their friends were.

    They chose to have Total Basement Finishing of WNY install new walls with our EverLast Wall Panels, paint the ceiling, and install fantastic looking durable Thermal Dry Elite Plank Flooring. They chose our Oak color, and it looks wonderful in their basement. Oak is one of our most popular colors for the flooring.

    Adding An Egress Window Adds Safety To A Basement In Orchard Park, NY

     

    In the spring of 2020 Total Basement Finishing of WNY got a call from a couple in Orchard Park, NY who had seen a friend's basement that we had previously finished. They told us that they wanted their basement to look as good and be as functional in their lives as their friends were. They had been using their basement as a home gym and a rec room, and they wanted to update the look of the space to make it a place that they wanted to spend even more time in.

    In May of 2020, New York State made a building mandate that any basement renovation needs to have an Egress Window installed with the rest of the work. Egress Windows are fantastic safety features that make sense to have if you are spending any real amount of time in your basement. They let you have a safe and easy way out in case of an emergency.

    In this basement, we installed the egress window where an older basement window had been. Expanding the space in the basement wall was easy, and the window had a clean finish when the job was done.

    Creating A Playroom In A Basement In Williamsville, NY

    In the summer of 2020 a homeowner in Williamsville, NY contacted us at TBF of WNY about helping them create a playroom for their grandchildren in their basement. They didn't want to finish the full basement, just to create a special space for the grandkids in their basement so they could all play together. Our Design Specialist Todd met with the homeowner and their spouse and went through different options for them; helping them eventually settle on finishing half the basement and adding a storage closet and egress window with it. There will be plenty of space for their grandchildren to play there. 

    The egress window was installed in December, and our installation crew worked on the project over the winter. Our EverLast Walls and Thermal Dry Elite Plank Flooring created a kid-friendly room for the grandchildren to play in. We hope that this family can create many memories in their new basement space.

    Updating A Basement In Snyder, NY

     

    A couple in Snyder, NY wanted to update their basement. It had been finished in the 1970s, and again in the 1990s, and it just wasn't what they wanted it to be now.  They wanted to keep two of the finished wood-paneled walls, but to remove two of the current walls to open up the basement space. They met with our Design Specialist Todd and went through their ideas with him. He let them know that we could do most of the work that they wanted. Our Installation Crew demolished the two walls that the couple wanted to get rid of, installed new EverLast Wall Panels, new doors, an egress window, and a new Thermal Dry Elite Tile Floor.

    Painting The Basement Ceiling In Buffalo, NY

    During the winter of 2021, a couple contacted Total Basement Finishing of WNY for help finishing their basement. They already had finished walls but they wanted an estimate for floors and having the ceiling painted. After meeting with our Design Specialist Todd, the couple chose to just have the ceiling painted for now and have their floors done later. Because this was such a small job we could fit it in this spring. The ceiling turned out fantastic and we hope that when they are ready to have their floors done that the couple will call on us at TBF of WNY.

    Customizing A Basement In Clarence Center, NY

    Total Basement Finishing of WNY was contacted by a pair of homeowners in Clarence Center, NY for help refinishing their basement. They wanted to create several separate rooms in their basement, with one central one to become a playroom for their children. They really wanted to create an area for their kids that was separate from the laundry room and storage area.  Their basement had a unique shape with several small areas already jutting out from the main section, which would create small rooms with little extra framing work.

    Our installation team used our EverLast Wall Systems to create the new main room and the separate side rooms. New wiring and eleven recessed lights created a bright basement for the family to use and enjoy. And our thermal flooring panels throughout the whole basement created an easy to clean and beautiful floor for the family to use. We hope that the family is enjoying their whole basement and that their children are really using and loving their new playroom.

    New Information Changed A Project In East Amherst, NY

    In the summer of July 2020, a woman contacted TBF of WNY for a free estimate on finishing her basement. She wanted to make it into a rec room with a home gym area and an area for her toddler to safely play in. When asked she told us that there were no water issues in her basement, it was just a regular, unfinished basement space.

    Our Design Specialist todd met with her and did measurements in her basement. When he was measuring he found that there was water damage on the floor and wall by the sump pump. When Todd spoke with the homeowner about this damage she said that they had been having some trouble with the sump pump and the basement had been getting some water in it by the sump pump over the previous year but because the basement hadn't really flooded she didn't think to mention it when booking the appointment. She chose to have us install a new sump pump for her and to just finish the floors and the ceiling in the basement until she was sure that the walls wouldn't get water on them again. She also had us install a new SaniDry dehumidifier to keep the basement air dry too. We were happy to work with her on this project and we hope that her basement is nice and dry for her now! We hope that when she is ready to finish the walls that she will give us a call.

    Bringing A Basement Room Back To Life In Niagara Falls, NY

    In the fall of 2020, a couple contacted Total Basement Finishing of WNY for help with their basement. There was a room in it that had been created in the late 1970s and it was looking worn, tired, and broken. They wanted Total Basement Finishing to bring this room back to life for them.  Our Design Specialist Todd met with the couple and measured the room. He saw three types of paneling on the walls, and one of them had a hole in it that was the size of half the wall panel. It was certainly time for an upgrade!

    When meeting with Todd the couple decided that they didn't want to finish the basement floor right now, they just wanted to upgrade their existing walls to our fantastic EverLast Wall Panels, have the basement room ceiling painted, and install some new lighting to make the current basement room cheerful and bright.
