    I used Keller and Sons Construction to finish our basement, very happy with dedication, quality and responsiveness.

    Ballpark, how much are the quotes to finish your basement?

    How many square feet? Does this include a bathroom?

    Rlab, we got a quote from a couple of people for finishing our basement. It is 1300 sq.ft without the bathroom (as the bath is finished by the builder). We asked for drywall, ceiling, 2 closets and the lights. We have got different prices ranging from $12,000 to $27,500, the highest being Mike Rosario's ($27,500). We are still looking, haven't decided yet.

    I am very surprised to see that Mike's price is so high.

    We have recieved a few quotes including Wayne Keller. Looks like his pricing is decent and his reference are good. We are probably going to sign him up and will update the forum on how things go.

    Has anyone used Premier Home Services to finish their basement? We are just starting to look into getting our basement finished so I was hoping to get some reccomendations from people.

    We used Premier Home Services for our deck and they were great. We were so happy with them that we are using them to consult for our basement. They offer an option where you can perform some of the work yourself and the areas that you can't do (or don't want to like drywall) can be contracted out. They get the permits, get you in touch with venders, monitor your work, and let you know if you've made any mistakes. You don't have to use their vendors if you don't want to. They will give you the list of supplies that you will need and you can get it from lowes or homedepot if you want. We're currently in the framing process and I'm doing that myself but it's been wonderful working with them. If you like to get your hands dirty this is a great way to do it and saves a lot of money.

    Hello,

    Sorry, I have been traveling and just today checked in. Jim, we went with Keller & Sons. Dont have any specific feedback on the work since he hasn't started yet. He has been easy to work with so far. Expecting to start next week.

    Has anyone had an egress window installed in their basement?

    If so, how much did it cost?
