This organization is top notch to say the least! I will forever sing the praises of the extreme degree of professionalism, the incredibly top tier level of quality that I saw implemented on my project. Any home-owner would do well to hire this company as they are supreme in my book.

This is my second time hiring BBB. Previously, they did over my bathroom & buoy a new one in the basement. This time I had a leaky skylight in the closed in breezeway that has been leaking for quite some time & causing a fair amount of damage. I contacted BBB & got an estimate with work started & completed within two weeks. They gave me a very detailed estimate with a time table on what was going ...

The experience with BBB was outstanding. This is a project that has been many years in the making, and I was a little nervous signing off on such a huge investment. Of course I did my due diligence, and from the beginning, my comfort level with BBB far eclipsed that with any of the other companies. That is the case from Sales (Wayne), to ownership (Jim) to every worker that came in throughout. Eve...

Better Built Basements LLC renovated my basement this past summer, installing a full bathroom, bedroom (with egress window), office and finished common area.
