Reviews for Denver basement finishing professionals
We hired Galvan Remodeling to finish our basement with two conforming bedrooms and a 3/4 bathroom with a double vanity. We were very happy with the results and found that Jose and his crew were very fast and courteous. They even moved all of their tools and supplies through the basement window so they didn't make a mess in the rest of the house! Jose was always making sure throughout the build that we were happy with the progress. Galvan Remodeling finished the build on time and in budget! We would definitely hire Galvan Remodeling again!

Working with Tyler at Hawaiian Handyman was SO great! He finished our entire basement & loft (drywall, paint, ceiling install, floor install, electrical box, TV install, tile repair, shower door install) and it all looks fantastic!! He was obviously skilled & experienced in a variety of areas and he really tackled all of the projects we tossed at him. He was responsive, communicative, timely, and a pleasure to work with~ We won’t hesitate to contact him for all future home renovations & repairs!
Do not hire these people!
•Stole our money: They asked for payment well in advance of work being completed and walked off job after collecting 77% payment and only completing 57% of the work (Certified by an architect) - essentially stealing thousands of dollars from my family.
•We received threats: They didn't pay their subs in full so the subs came after us. The subs (two large guys) showed up to our house at 10pm demanding payment and threatening to put liens on my house unless I paid them cash. Diana and LeRoy were nowhere to be found and did not help us at all with the situation.
•Strange Hours: The same subs were working in our basement in the middle of the night (8pm - 6am) keeping us up when we needed to work the next day on two different occasions.
•Behind Schedule: The job was promised to be done in one month, after three months they walked off the job with only 57% of the work completed.
•Sub-par work: There are numerous holes in the drywall, paint overspray, incorrect installation of trim, doors that don't fit in the frame, cabinet doors that don't open, electrical wires smashed under supports, fingerprints in the drywall mud, trash everywhere, incorrect materials (carpet), cabinets and lights installed in the wrong places,
•Poor Management: All of the subs were coming to us to ask questions about the job instead of Diana and Leroy coming to the job site to explain the project and manage the subs.
•Avoiding Communication: There were several weeks during the project where Diana and LeRoy did not respond to calls, texts or emails. Several times I followed up a verbal conversation with an email to confirm what we had agreed upon and they never responded.
•Nickel and Dime: The estimate the gave us was very vague and when we asked them to do normal "turn key" work they tried to charge extra: painting ceiling a different color, kitchen back-splash versus counter-splash, modifying kitchen cabinets so they open, scribing trim, charging extra for materials inconsistently from one project to the next.
•Court: I had to take them to court and the judge sided with me a issued a judgement that Anaid owes me over $4,500.
Pics show how the basement was left unfinished and how it is now that I hired someone else to finish the job.
