A couple in Cheektowaga, NY approached us for help refreshing their basement. They wanted to keep it very open, but to modernize it. We worked with them to design a space that would let them do whatever they would like to in the future, and used our fantasatic Ever-Last Wall Systems, and Mill Creek Flooring to do so. The couple wanted to keep their ceiling as it was originally, so our Mill Creek Flooring in Mahogany provided a pleasant color contrast. And we did a wrap on the support poles that adds a very attractive element.

A woman called TBF of WNY, she and her husband were looking to update their basement so they could have it as a regular living space instead of just storage. They already had 2 sump pumps and no water issues in their basement, so they were just looking to remodle the space. When our design technician met with they, he found that to make the space what they wanted that the renovation would include moving the hot water tank. As this is no problem for TBF of WNY, they went forward with the work.
Along with moving the hot water tank, the work that TBF did for the couple included installing our Ever-Last wall systems, putting in a Linen drop ceiling and Mill Creek Basement Flooring in Mahogany, and installing new doors around the basement to help seperate the space.
The couple now has a modern and beautiful living space as well as storage in their basement, and it looks fantastic.
A fantastic couple in Orchard Park, NY approached us about refinishing their basement. Though it had been finished before, they had a lot of water damage and had enough of the trouble that water causes with carpets and wood. Their basement was fantastic with a lot of unique details like a bar and a fire place, that they didn't want to lose. TBF of WNY was happy to help them with this.
So much had to be done to redo this basement and to keep it dry. TBF of WNY did a demolition of the drywall, and reframed the bathroom to create a fresh finished space. We put in new EverLast basement windows, and a Sani-Dry XP Air System to try to stop future water from accumilating in the basement. We also installed our EverLast wall systems to the exterior walls and to create the new bathroom space, and set up the bathroom with a new vanity and toilet. Our Mill Creek Flooring in Mahagony completed the finished look.
We're very proud of our work at this home in Orchard Park, NY; and we hope that the couple has no more water issues and that they can enjoy this space for decades to come!
A homeowner from Hamburg, NY approached us with a simple basement refinishing job in Hamburg, NY. They had been using their basement a little but thought that it had vastly more potential than it was being used for.
Our Design Specialist met with them and helped them design a special space of their own. We finished the walls using our EverLast wall system, and seperated the space into a storage area and a living area. We installed a bi-fold door to finish seperating the space and installed our beautiful Mill Creek flooring in a light tone to keep the basement looking cool and sleek. The EverLast walls and Mill Creek flooring are water resistant and clean and wear very well; making things easy to keep clean and comfortable for the homeowner.
We hope that the homeowner gets years of happy moments in their sleek and modern basement.
TBF of WNY was contacted by a really nice man who wanted to finish his basement. He had a fairly new house but the basement was a blank space that was being used as a children's play area. He had a vision of the basement being a few seperate rooms, with a bathroom that his family would enjoy.
Our Design Specialist met with the man three times, and revised the design plan as the man's vision changed over time. TBF ended up finishing a large multipurpose room for the family, without a bathroom, and a smaller storage agea. We used our EverLast wall systems to break up the space and finish the walls, installed a linen drop ceiling, added more electrical outlets along with our Mill Creek Flooring, as well as our SaniDry XP Air System to keep the basement dry and comfortable.
A couple in East Amherst, NY contacted Total Basement Finishing of WNY about their basement. It was a finished basement, but it looked tired. They were using it as a family room and office area, and it needed a refinish to bring it into the future with their family.
Our Design Specialist Andrew met with the couple and discussed options with them. They decided to keep their current walls, and to put in new flooring and a new ceiling. This was a great choice as our Linen dropped ceiling with mineral fiber composition will hold up a lot better for them than the particle ceiling that they had. And the got a SaniDry XP Air system. We know that this will make a big difference not only in their basement but also in the air quality of their whole house!
We hope that the couple loves the look of their refinished basement as much as we at TBF of WNY do.
In December 2019 we were contacted by a father and son in Buffalo, NY asking for help with renovations to their basement. They wanted to turn their basement into a multi room living space. Our Design Specialist Paul met with them, and assessed the work that they wanted to do. He found that to keep the prospective projects within New York State building code, that there would need to be multiple egress windows installed in the space. We created a multi phase installation plan with the family, and worked with the city of Buffalo to obtain the necessary permits to install the egress windows first. After the ground thawed from the winter cold, and we waited out the Covid-19 pause on work, we got started on installing 3 egress windows for the family. The excavation and installation both went well and we hope that the family will have years of safety from the work we've done.
A woman contacted us about turning her large basement into an apartment for her son who was moving back to Tonawanda, NY. She was interested in creating several rooms in the basement and laying out the space to include a small kitchen and a half bathroom. Our Design Specialist got her son involved in the redesign process, and found that he wanted to add a full bathroom instead of a half bath, and a secure exterior exit to the basement so that he could come and go without disturbing his mother.
Total Basement Finishing of WNY was happy to step in and work with this family on their basement redesign needs. We installed out EverLast wall systems to refinish the exterior walls, and create rooms out of the open basement space. We installed a full bathroom, and put in the cabinets to create a kitchenette area. We also put in a new floor using out Mill Creek Flooring, and painted the ceiling to create a fully finished look. We also put in the egress door as requested, so there was a secure exit that could be used reguarly.
We're very pleased with how this full basement refinishing came out, and how beautiful the space is. We hope that this family can enjoy this space for many years to come.
A couple in Getzville, NY called us at Total Basement Finishing of WNY to help them refinish their basement and make it a clean and modern living area for their busy family to enjoy.
The couple originally thought about putting in a bathroom, but decided to hold off on putting it in at the time of the redesign. They chose to have us remove the carpet that was currently in the basement and put in a beautiful and easy to clean Mill Creek Floor. They had TBF of WNY paint the ceiling and install our EverLast wall system on the exterior walls and to create new walls to divide their space into a new room.
Ww are so glad that the family has this clean new space to enjoy, and we hope that they can use it for many years as their children grow.

We installed our EverLast Wall System around the exterior basement walls, and also used it to create a small storage closet for her. We painted the ceiling, installed new lighting, and smoke alarms for safety.

A couple in Alden, NY contacted Total Basement Finishing of WNY at the Buffalo Home Show for help waterproofing their basement. They wanted to refinish their basement but had water issues in it too. Total Basement Finishing helped them set up the design for the basement, and could do the waterproofing too.
TBF of WNY created a small trench on the perimeter of the basement to create a barrier in the drain tile and tied the perimeter tile to the sump pump to give the water it collected a place to go to be released. We then poured concrete to the same level of the existing floor and smoothed it so there will be no difference in the space over time.
We hope that the couple has a dry and comfortable basement for years to come!
A woman came to us at TBF wanting help refinishing her basement to help recreate her husband's space down there. It was well loved but was down to bare bones and insulation; it was ready for a total basement refinishing!
Our design consultant met with the woman and her husband and found that there was a fun bar in one area that they didn't want much done with. New floors, painting the ceiling and adding lights brought that area up to looking like a fancy bar downtown. And adding new insulation and our EverLast wall systems along with new floors and painting the ceiling opened up the basement to a whole new level of comfort and easy style.
A couple in Clarence, NY contacted TBF of WNY about refinishing their basement walls. They have a fairly large basement with a small area jutting out from the main section of it; and they wanted the walls and ceilings refinished. They had a very simple job for us as they did not have any special desires for seperated rooms and they did not have any water issues.
After the New York State Covid-19 pause we got to work. Insulation and our EverLast wall system quickly went up in the basement, and the ceiling was painted to give the room a modern and finished look. They planned to set up an area to exercise in, and they loved how our walls look in their bathroom now.
A woman reached out to TBF of WNY, she and her husband wanted to make their basement into a home office as Covid 19 was leading them to work from home. They liked their basement, there were no water issues in it and it was an open and ideal space to make an office in. Our Design Specialist, Andrew, met with the couple and helped them design a basement office that would suit what they needed, and help the rest of their basement stay clean and easy to maintain.
The couple was initially concerned about the cost of our products but they saw the value in our work and materials and went ahead with the project. We installed our EverLast Wall Systems to create new walls for the home office. Painted part of the ceiling and installed a drop ceiling over the office area. We installed new flooring and made sure that the baseboard heating systems worked so the new office area will be cozy in the winter.
With our EverLast wall systems, new flooring, and both a painted and a drop ceiling put in, they have a wonderful new workspace. We hope that they both enjoy it and can be very productive there.
