We selected Creating Space to finish our basement after meeting and considering proposals from several contractors. From our initial consultation Todd DiFiore was extremely personable, professional, and straightforward. He provided us with an estimate within the expected time frame, and quickly responded to any and all inquiries. Todd listened to our needs and our vision, and provided great ideas along the way. Once the work got underway, it progressed quickly, and with attention to detail. When one sub-contractor finished their work, the next phase of the project began promptly. Any issues that arose during our project were promptly communicated and addressed in a fair manner. The quality of all work and finishing was top notch. We're really pleased with the end result and have Todd and the Creating Space crew to thank!

Todd DiFiore and the Creating Space team made our basement project very easy. Todd did a great job helping us plan the space and walked us through the details. His experience came in handy when planning the layout and what level of finish would give us the best look and fit in our budget. We received a schedule and a guide to the things we needed to do and when they had to be done, along with names and numbers of who to call for each stage of construction. Their crews were all very professional and we felt very comfortable with them in our basement. All the specialty trades that made up our basement team commented on how long they had work primarily or exclusively for Creating Space. The transition between each group from drywall to flooring was seamless. The permitting and approval process was done in a professional manner and every one was very polite and accommodating. Todd and his team get an unqualified recommendation from us. John

These folks were the easiest contractors I've ever dealt with and that's saying a lot. We finished a nanny suite, a basement bar, a small gym, a playroom, a full bath and a basement living area. The project was completed in a timely manner. The contractors were all pleasant and did good work. They showed up when they said they were coming. Todd is a nice guy that you'll enjoy working with should you choose this company. I added some design ideas that he'd not yet done and he was eager to make it all happen.

After receiving several bids for finishing my basement and talking to many of those contractors we chose to go with Creating Space. We are extremely happy that we did. Todd was very professional right from the start and always very prompt in responding to emails, texts or phone calls. During our first meeting he took time to understand what we were looking for and also helping us with design ideas. He provided a detailed estimate and even included a layout plan along with the estimate. His allowances was very good our project was done within the original estimate and on schedule. We found him dependable and committed to our job from start to finish. Subcontractors who work for him are also very professional and their work is of very high quality. His prices are very reasonable and quality of work is great. He has created a beautiful basement for us, looking forward to enjoying the space. I would highly recommend Todd and Creating Space for any basement or remodeling project.

Todd was very responsive to all phone calls/texts/emails. His quote was accurate (actual price of the project was $70 off of his quote). The quality of the work was excellent! Any issues were immediately addressed. The project was completed on time. Todd is trustworthy, sincere, and cares that we are satisfied with the final product. We highly recommend Creating Space!

We could not have asked for a better experience from start to finish. We interviewed several different contractors and just seemed to click with Todd and his vision for our basement. We also had the opportunity to view a recent basement he had completed in our area and that helped solidify our decision. He provided us with a detailed proposal and all of his allowances were extremely fair; we only went slightly above our original estimate due to changes we requested along the way. Todd's communication was excellent and he does a nice job of outlining the timeline and work process. We felt comfortable with all the subcontractors and appreciated that they have all worked with Todd for some time. Gabe also was there to do some of the work and made sure everything turned out perfect. We look forward to using our new space for years come.

We chose Creating Space to finish our basement after interviewing a couple of other contractors. It was always easy to communicate with Todd and we got prompt responses to our emails which made the whole process go very smooth. Todd and Gabe are professionals who have great ideas. We were very happy with all the sub-contractors who were involved. The entire project was well managed and was finished on time and within budget. The quality of work is excellent and everyone who has seen our basement is very impressed. We are very happy with how the basement has turned out. Thank you Todd and Gabe!

Todd took the time to understand how we intended to use our basement as well as our priorities and budget constraints before drafting a detailed proposal. He showed up when he said he would, managed a top notch team of subcontractors and brought the job in on time and on budget. Our space was funky and required some creative problem solving. Todd offered ideas and solutions that we had never thought of. He also knew a great deal about the local real estate market and where to spend and where to cut back in order to maximize rehab value. Communication was excellent from initial estimate to final bill. Plus, he was just a nice guy. He worked around our kids and cats and family chaos with complete understanding. He employs his dad and contracting mentor to do some of the woodworking and focus on the small details that often get overlooked in the end of a rehab (touchups, hardware, etc.) so there are no lingering issues. In the end, we love our basement and are happy with the price tag. What more can I say? We highly recommend this business.

This review is long overdue but worth it! Todd finished our basement in early July 2015 and we couldn't be more pleased. We interviewed 3 contractors and selected Todd because of his proven reputation, and his inclusive bid covered many items that other contractors considered "extras". The entire process was seamless. Each member of the project team was absolutely outstanding - from Gabe and Carl, to the framing and drywall installation, painting, the plumbers, and HVAC. Todd is a true professional and was always available to field any questions. Our family and neighbors rave about the finished product. I have already recommended Creating Space to several people and would do so again without hesitation.

We knew from the first meeting with Todd that we had the right company to finish our basement. Our goal was to finish our basement with high standards and workmanship without spending a fortune... After meeting with several local contractors with disappointing results we continued our search until finding Creating Space on Kudzu, from our first meeting we knew our search was over. Todd and his crew were very professional, clean, friendly and honest. The project was finished on time and under budget. Our only regret was not contacting Creating Space and Todd first. Thank you Todd and Gabe for a job well done!!

From the first call with Todd to discuss the basics of our basement through to the end product, we enjoyed working with the Creating Space team! Todd and his team listened to what we wanted and provided suggestions to help us with things we had not considered. Everything was customized to our satisfaction and within our budget. Todd was also patient with us when we had questions during the project. It was important for us to work with someone who we trusted and Todd and his team exceeded our expectations. We will use Creating Space again in the future and have recommended them to our friends.

We spoke to at least 5 contractors for our basement and never felt 100% sure about any of them until we met with Todd. He listened to our vision and had great ideas about what to do with our space to get the most use out of it. He wasn't the most expensive or the least, but we felt like we would get exactly what we wanted with him. Todd and Gabe were very professional and we always knew what was going on. If we had any issues Todd resolved them quickly and is great with getting back to you with any questions you have. We were very pleased with our final product and are enjoying our space. We would highly recommend Creating Space!

Todd was our 10th contractor interviewed, and though he's definitely not the cheapest, you get what you pay for. With Todd, we got a beautiful new basement, down to the tiny details. And, he came within 3% of his estimate (you know you've done well when the final bill is within 10%). I'd choose Todd again if I had the chance... Todd will work with you every step of the way, giving good, honest advice regarding your choices. His subs are spectacular in their own right (ask to see his basement bar), and generally show up on time, clean up, and are happy to speak directly with you. Also, they all speak highly of Todd (more than you'd expect about their general contractor). Todd's allowances are fair (not lowballs to get business), and I never felt like I was being "nickled and dimed" for any minor change in the plans. Ultimately, we have a great new space that we'll enjoy for years. Thanks, Todd!

We were in the market to have our basement built out and met with several companies which specialized in basement work. After speaking with Todd and looking at the work Creating Space does there was no comparison to the quality of work he offers versus the others we spoke to. The cost of Creating Space was between the two other companies we spoke to so the costs were not out of line, however, please know that finishing a basement the right way is not cheap. The bottom line is having a basement finished with quality in mind is much more enjoyable to spend time in - and as a bonus adds to the value of your home. That is why we chose Todd and Creating Space. We wanted a quality finished basement and had confidence that Todd and Creating Space would take care of the job correctly. Thanks Todd! We love our new basement.

Our biggest concern going into our basement build out was concern about quality and attention to details during the project. We had several neighbors who had stories about contractors exceeding timelines and omitting details from the original quote that drove additional charges. This was absolutely not the case with Creating Spaces. They did exactly what they said within the timelines they said they would do it in. When issues came up, they were always on top of it and issues were resolved quickly. The quality of the workmanship was excellent and we consistently get compliments on the finished product . We were so pleased with the work that we have recommended them to several other friends as well.
