Finally...a great contractor!, 7/16/2014

We've had to use many contractors over the past 40 years, but finally-this time-we had a great experience. Working with Michael and Atlanta Basement Creations was a pleasure. He's a wonderful... communicator, keeps his word and cares about the project like it was his own home. We hired him because we saw the amazing job he did in our daughter's home and he did excellent work for us as well. It's a rare commodity to have a contractor who you can trust. He put in a full kitchen/ breakfast area and laundry room in an unfinished part of our basement. We highly recommend.

So happy with our finished basement!, 7/15/2014

We decided to use Michael and Atlanta Basement Creations after seeing a neighbor's beautiful finished basement. We are so glad we did! Michael met with us five or six times during the planning and... quoting phase to ensure that our basement met all of our needs. He had great suggestions and talked through all of the ideas with us to figure out the pros and cons. I was very indecisive and he was very patient! After we settled on a design, he got right to work. His team of subcontractors and employees were all amazing. Our calls and texts were answered immediately. All of the work was done in a timely manner and when they said they would be there, they would show up. When we ran into hiccups with the project, they were dealt with immediately and he made sure we were satisfied with everything. Anyone that visits our home wishes aloud that they would have used ABC to finish their basement. The attention to detail is amazing....from the sliding barn door, to the custom wine cabinet (which was created just from a photo we liked on Houzz), to the custom, movable island, the stone wall and cedar beams...he made our vision become a reality. The trim work and flooring that he includes in the quote are so much nicer than what other contractors quoted us. Our neighbors even noticed how attentive ABC was during the project and that it was finished ON TIME!! We are so happy with the finished project, his team of people and Michael himself and we highly recommend them!

A True Professional

Our first meeting with Michael we were blown away with his knowledge and professionalism. Michael sat down with our family to clearly understand what our vision for our basement was and how he could achieve this. During our meeting, my 7 year old son ask Michael that he wanted a cool playroom where he could watch T.V., play video games and hang out with his friends. Not only did Michael meet his expectations, he exceeded them with a fabulous playroom. Michael also spent several hours with us understanding how we wanted the flow of our basement. This was very important as we wanted to have a bar, but wanted to make sure it flowed with our plans. Once again, our expectations were exceeded. The end result was an unbelievable stunning bar to enjoy with friends. Michael and his team paid close attention to detail, very clean and all around great people to work with. His knowledge assisted us in making what we thought would be difficult decisions, easy ones. Thank you Michael for making our wish to finish our basement come true. I highly recommend Atlanta Basement Creations.

Exceptional Value and Service

We completed out basement project with Atlanta Basement Creations a few weeks ago, a process that occurred over 3.5 months. Michael was of great help to us in all phases of our project that began with discussing our needs for a finished basement, identifying the activities we planned to conduct there, and determining the most economical means to accomplish our goals and plans. He took time to know us as individuals, to offer alternatives to our initial plans that promised better return for our monetary investment and that produced a better final project. Michael was available to us by phone and/or email and we talked one or two times each week, sometimes daily, throughout the construction period. We converted the basement into a great room with kitchenette, a study, bedroom with sitting room, a hobby room, and a full bath. In working through these items, we found his knowledge of construction details to be as impressive and helpful as his skills in personal relations. His subcontractors were also very knowledgeable and skilled in their areas of specialty. All have our commendation for their timely delivery of services, cooperative spirit, and helpful recommendations when requested. We recommend Michael and Atlanta Basement Creations enthusiastically without reservation. The final product has exceeded our expectations. Family and friends who have seen it have been highly complementary. We are very pleased with our experience in working with ABC.

BROUGHT MY VISION TO LIFE!

I probably wasn't ABC's typical client. I had a ton of "crazy ideas" in my head that even I had never seen. We LOVE entertaining OUR friends and enjoy cool date nights. I wanted a "hotel feel", a place we could escape to. All Michael had to work with in the beginning was my extensive list of adjectives: beautiful, elegant, modern, but not contemporary, an escape from everyday life, but also needed it to be fun and fully functional to meet the entertaining requirements of our 4 children-Teens all the way down to a 3 year old. I cannot begin to describe how elated EACH member of our family is with our DREAM BASEMENT.HE LISTENED!! He literally took my vision and brought it to life! From the clean lines in trim, my sleek, beautiful bar room which includes modern tile accent wall, white stone backsplash, OR the fact that he designed a bar island that can seat up to 12, but can be "rolled" to the side & used as a buffet so that bar area has room for ping pong table-HE NAILED IT!! He created a killer teen suite with loft bed, chalk board, and custom colors, includes a pocket door that can be closed when they need to get away from the energy of our younger 2 :) For them, he created an adorable little house under stairs. THEY LOVE IT! Our ENTIRE basement truly feels like a hotel. But, our favorite is our theater. I wanted a place we could all snuggle up, but wanted it to look like a theater. THANK YOU ABC for your exceptional talent, integrity, pride, and for truly listening to us!

Professional quality

After several months of usage, I am happy with the result of my finished basement. Nothing has shown any sign of deterioration. In hindsight, I would recommend ABC to my friends. It took about 3.5 months to finish the basement, and I would say the professionalism of crews and workmanship are better than many contractors I had worked with. I particularly commend his electricians and carpenters. Honestly to say, not everything went smoothly and we had quite a few arguments. But eventually we were able to resolve the differences amicably enough. A few recommendations to prospective homeowners for a more smooth experience: 1) Have a complete list prepared and agreed upon of every single items you are supposed to buy as a part of the contract. 2). Schedule a weekly (or two) meeting(~30 minutes each)with the ABC owner, either in person or via teleconference to ascertain his prompt attention to your concerns. Follow up with an email summary. 3). Inspect work site regular to spot quality issues or discrepancy with the contract, and promptly bring them to ABC's attention. The most important one is the second point above because ABC is a successful and very busy company. Setting aside a couple of times a week to confer is the best way to avoid mis-communication and frustrations on both sides.

Exactly What We Wanted

When interviewing contractors for the finishing of our basement, we could tell that Michael had a good understanding of what we wanted. And when we went to see a basement recently completed by ABC, we were sold. Michael's attention to detail was evident - beautiful trey ceilings and trim work - in addition to the overall use of space. Michael and his workers are extremely professional. Any questions or concerns we had were quickly addressed. Their work is quality, timely, and - most importantly - complete only when you are satisfied. We couldn't have asked to work with a better company and are very happy with our new basement.

Awesome to work with

Mike was very professional and considerate of us living in the house while the work was done. He is very detail conscious, if any thing is not right he makes sure it is perfect. They finished the job two weeks ahead of schedule and he went above and beyond he contract to get me settled in my new place. All his contractors are the same. love the out come of my basement it is so much more than I expected.

Great service and attention to detail

We like to keep our business local and found Atlanta Basement Creations in our neighborhood leaflet, after asking Michael to quote we learned that he had done work for friends, after a quick call it was easy choice to go with ABC. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Michael and his team, they are honest and trustworthy, and above all do a great job. Michael took the time to get to know our whole family and took us into account when helping design the layout of our basement. Some of his suggestions have turned out to be tremendous features and focal points that everyone comments on, which just reinforces that we made the right choice to go with Michael. From day one, Michael outlined the timeline and stuck to it, easily accommodating some changes along the way, and always with a smile. The attention to detail by all of the team was fantastic, the initial walk thru of the electrical roughing showed just how much thought goes into every basement, and everything else followed suit. The finished product shows the pride that is taken by all of the tradesmen that are associated with ABC, and I would be happy to use them again and will happily refer business to Michael.

ABC – Absolutely the Best!

We stumbled upon ABC on Facebook. We invited Michael to our house to view our (messy) basement and talk about our vision, as we had done with several contractors. Michael stood out. He listened closely to what we wanted as we peppered him with questions. Michael answered each question in a way that showed the depth of his experience and knowledge, while offering valuable suggestions. For example, he gave us wise advice about the flow and feel of the various rooms, and how to create the best overall design. His style was just right for us. He proved to be honest, candid, and trustworthy. ABC was in our sweet spot- a great value for the price. The contract was easy to read and understand, and provided a week-by-week timeline of what to expect. Michael was more than fair with change orders and additions. He was available by phone, email, and text. The final price was right on target when we completed the project. No surprises. The reality of a large project is unexpected things happen, and Michael was the right person to find solutions. The final walkthrough went well due to ABC’s attention to detail and desire to make us happy. The finished product exceeded our expectations. Our ABC basement has a “Wow” factor that added great value to our home. Our family can now enjoy our new basement for many years to come. Thank you Atlanta Basement Creations for turning our dream of a finished basement into a reality!

Perfect Man Cave!

We really enjoyed working with Michael from start to finish on our project. In our opinion,not only is he a very nice person and an outstanding professional, we felt he truly wanted us to be satisfied when the job is done. And I can tell you without any hesitation whatsoever, we certainly are. We could not be happier or more pleased with the final result of our basement project. Thanks, Michael - great job!

A Dream Basement

Michael was the first person we met with when deciding to finish our basement. He should have been the last. None of the other three companies could match Michael’s unique design and enthusiasm towards our project. He worked within our budget and delivered a finished product which still produces a “Wow” factor every time we see the basement. Our basement design included a full wet bar, media/theater room with a stone accent wall, game area, workout room, full bathroom, and storage area. Michael and his sub-contractors took our original design ideas and offered suggestions to enhance them, along with offering his own artistic ideas along the way. Michael only works with experienced subs and his electrician Carl was especially knowledgeable and friendly. We had fairly extensive electrical requirements for the bar and theater area, and Carl already had them marked out perfectly before we had our first electrical meeting. Michael was always good about communicating who would be coming to the house each day. My wife and small child are home each day and we never worried about any of Michael’s crew being at the house each day. I would not hesitate to use Michael again and highly recommend him to anyone looking to finish a basement. Our basement exceeds anything we could have imagined before starting the project.

Above and Beyond

Selecting Atlanta Basement Creations was the best choice I could have made. I interviewed 6 potential contractors, and Michael was our first choice by a longshot. His price was competitive, but more importantly I felt very comfortable with him. He came across very honest and direct, which proved to be true. He was prepared and professional, but most importantly, I felt very comfortable with him (and his team) being in my home while I was travelling for work. The building process went very smooth from his end. Early on, and along the way he came up with several ways to make the original concept better. I have to stress, that these weren't ways to add cost, in fact some of them even saved money. During our process, we had a water issue with our original home builder (not Michael). It was potentially a nightmare issue, and it happened while I was out of town. Michael coordinated and met with our builders in my absence and helped create a solution that was resolved in one week. That was completely outside his scope, and he was glad to do it! We love our basement and would make the exact same decision again to use Michael and Atlanta Basement Creations.

couldn't be happier

Michael and his team at Atlanta Basement Creations exceeded every one of our expectations. We were very well prepared with our plans for the remodel but Michael took our vision above and beyond what we thought we wanted by offering his expert opinions and adding several personal touches. For every challenge we faced, he had a very creative solution that only a true professional would think of. The end result truly reflects the pride that Michael and his team have for every job no matter how large or small. We would highly recommend Atlanta Basement Creations.

Can't say enough good things!

Michael and Atlanta Basement Creations finished our basement. Michael actually built our home too, and so we were totally comfortable knowing the excellent quality, attention, and detailed touches we would get. We couldn't be happier with our new basement, and would recommend anybody use Atl Basement to get a fantatic finished basement.

Exceeded Our Expectations

We spoke to a number of contractors and called references before deciding to have Atlanta Basement Creations finish our basement. We were comfortable with Mike from the first visit. He was aware that we had a budget for the project and worked with us to accomplish what we wanted from a finished basement. Our basement was just as it was left after the home was built and now it is a beautiful finished basment that exceeded our expectations. Our project was delivered within budget and on time. We highly recommend finishing your basement with Atlanta Basement Creations. Mike is a perfectionist who will make sure you are very satisfied with the end result.
