Our customers are delighted with their new basement

Dave finished my basement after my last contractor left me high and dry.  It’s not often a contractor shows up when they say they will but DMB was always on time and was very responsive. I would absolutely use them again.

Creating price certainty

In the world of basement remodeling, surprises are rarely pleasant, especially when they affect your pocketbook. That’s why at DMB Contracting, we use an innovative approach to budgeting, ensuring complete transparency and control for our clients.

Work With Allowances, Not Guesses

Instead of ambiguous estimates, we work with clear allowances. These are predefined budgets set aside for various aspects of your remodeling project. Whether it's the materials you choose or a desire to upscale, we always provide you with an allowance that gives clarity about costs from the start.

The beauty of this approach? It offers flexibility. If you wish to invest in higher quality materials or adjust your choices as we progress, you have the freedom to do so, always knowing the financial framework.

  • Flexibility
  • Price certainty
  • Full transparency
  • Certainty of quality, as quality affects cost

Detailed, Transparent Estimates

Our commitment to transparency reflects in our detailed estimates. Each significant phase of your basement remodeling has a separate allowance, ensuring you know precisely where and how your budget is allocated:

  • Demolition: From safely tearing down the old to prepping for the new.
  • Framing: Setting the structural backbone of your remodeled basement.
  • Carpentry Work: Craftsmanship that brings aesthetics and functionality together.
  • Plumbing: Modern, efficient plumbing solutions that stand the test of time.
  • Electrical: Safe, state-of-the-art electrical installations for a modern basement.

For instance, when we earmark a $4,000 plumbing allowance, it comprehensively covers faucets, toilets, sinks, and more. No guesswork, just clear numbers and it’s up to you to decide how you want to spend that budget.

With DMB Contracting, price certainty isn't just a buzzword—it’s our commitment. By putting you in the driver's seat of your budget, we ensure that your basement transformation journey is not only beautiful but also stress-free.
