This dank and dingy basement in Swampscott, MA was definitely not a place that most people would want ot work out in. Total Basement Finishing swooped in and installed watertight Everlast Wall Panels to keep the moisture out of that basement, as well as rubber gym flooring. They also added mirrors to give the illusion of a larger room. This space was transformed into a gym-goers dream come true.

Job Stories From Essex County, MA
Additional Space Without an Addition in Manchester, NH

Ryan F. found our Total Basement Finishing website with the hopes of remodeling his basement. He called shortly after visiting our website and we set up an appointment for John to go out and look at the space.

Ryan said that they had lived in the house for seven years, but their basement was completely unfinished. Their kids were getting old enough where they needed a place to play, but things in Ryan's house were a little bit cramped. They had tried to make due for a long time with this unfinished basement. They put down matting, "brightened" up the cement walls with posters, even put a couch down there, but in the end it still looked pretty dark and dismal- not really a place a kid would want to play in. This project called for a total basement remodel.

TBF finished the basement by installing Everlast Wall Panels (which are totally water and moisture-proof) and divided the large original space into two seperate rooms: a spare bedroom, and a game room for the kids. In the game room they also installed an Egress window to let in some natural light. The flooring used was a parquet tiling throughout the space. The finished space was beautiful and dry with lots of natural lighting and it will provide a space for the kids for years to come!  

A Great Teen Hang Out Space in Haverhill, MA

Ed W. called us asking about a new basement. He wanted a larger TV space where his two college age kids could hang out. With a TV space downstairs it would be much easier to keep the living room upstairs clean and ready for guests! Total Basement Finishing went in and removed a lally column to give them one open room of about 400 square feet. They were very pleased with the quality of work! 

Gloomy to Bright in Peabody, MA

The M's were tired of their gloomy basement. The M's used their basement to store various forgotten household goods. The large space was almost completely empty and used only for laundry. The M's dreaded walking down into the musty space and longed for a clean and bright addition to their home. 

Total Basement Finishing, a Blackdog affiliate, was able to completely transform the space. Now, the M’s are thrilled to have a clean laundry area and plenty of room for anything else they can imagine.

Barbershop in Lynnfield, MA

Linda, a Lynnfield homeowner, wanted to finish the basement in her older two family home. But linda didn't just want the extra space for storage, she wanted the space for her son to begin his barber business! Now that is an amazing and supportive mom! Linda reached out to Total Basement Finishing, a Blackdog Affiliate, because she was familiar with Blackdog Builders. After learning more about Total Basement Finishing, Linda was thrilled to find basement finishing products that are mold resistant. Linda dreaded the mildew basement smell, and wanted her son to have a welcoming space to work. Now, Linda has that space for her son!

Walk Out Basement in Andover, MA

Kevin and Karen felt that their walk our basement was doing their home a disservice remaining unfinished. They wanted to add a bedroom, bathroom, and TV room. Basically, the couple wanted the space for an in- law apartment. Even if they never used it as an in-law apartment, they saw the potential benefit of a guest room and the increased property value that comes with the additional living space. With this basement, we had to move some plumbing to make sure that the bathroom was situated properly. We were able to move the plumbing safely, ensuring that the homeowners will not experience any water issues as a result of the work. Kevin and Karen now have a whole new floor to their house!

Getting It Done Fast in Newburyport, MA

Bridgett, a Newburyport homeowner, wanted to refinish her basement by adding a guest room, office, bathroom, and place for storage. One thing Bridgett asked us to keep in mind... she was pregnant! She wanted to make sure work was completed by the time baby was born. We were happy to accommodate Bridgett's schedule, but her baby was a few weeks early! Bridgett called us, letting us know, and we made sure we were done with everything before she got back from the hospital. Though we know many parents who've done it, construction with a newborn is never fun! We were so happy for Bridgett and her new baby, and thrilled that we could get everything done before they got home. Now Bridgett has a newly refinished basement guest room, so all her friends and family can stay and visit her baby!

Turning a Good Home into a Dream Home in Danvers, MA

Tim and Michelle, recently moved to MA from down South. No, not Rhode Island, from Tennessee! They found a good home, in a great neighborhood, near their office. The only trouble with the house? It had 3 bedrooms and they wanted 4. It was important to these homeowners that their 3 kids each had their own personal space. Luckily, their Danvers home had an unfinished basement! A finished basement would give these homeowners the extra bedroom and additional space they wanted. Now their oldest son, who is currently away at college, will be able to return home to a private basement space. We were able to turn this Danvers home into Tim and Michelle's dream home!

Overhauling a Basement in Marblehead, MA

Some homes have beautiful basements. This Marblehead home, unfortunately, did not. Our clients never went into their basement. They hated it because it had a smelly stale old carpet and stained paneling. Our clients are into fitness, and they hated the idea of working out in a space that made them slightly nauseated. We are completely renovating the space! We're removing all the old carpet and paneling, finishing the space with our mildew and mold resistant product and we're adding a gorgeous wall covering mirror. Now our clients can work out in a clean and healthy space!

New Space Needed: Basement Bedroom!

Having loved ones move into your home is a blessing, but it can also be tricky when you don’t have a lot of extra space. This was the problem facing our clients in Andover, MA. To combat this, Total Basement Finishing used their Everlast Walls and SaniDry system to ensure long-lasting moisture protection and reconfigured their existing space. With the addition of an egress window and a new bedroom, this family was able to welcome an elderly family member into their home, without feeling cramped.

Fresh Floors in Andover, MA

There's nothing that can ruin the look of a space quite like damaged and outdated flooring. This was exactly the struggle of this family in Andover, MA when they approached Total Basement Finishing, A Blackdog Affiliate. A flood had caused the basement floor to bubble and lift from the foundation. Not to mention, the flood left the basement with mold and moisture issues. We replaced the flooring and installed, in its place, Elite Plank flooring. For good measure, we also installed a new PVC baseboard and a SaniDry XP system. These will help with any residual moisture in the space and mitigate damage from any potential floods in the future.
