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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Fresh Floors in Andover, MA

There's nothing that can ruin the look of a space quite like damaged and outdated flooring.

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.
