Steve was very detailed, his design was exactly what we wanted. The builders he paired us with were AMAZING. Would recommend
I have already referred to one family with a few others thinking about it.
The design specialist was gone about halfway through the project, without explanation, so I didn't have assistance towards the last half of the project. At the beginning I don't feel like the architect had much interest in bringing ideas to the table or making sure the basement met my needs. For example, I had an idea for a workout area in the basement, but I didn't realize the ceiling wasn't high enough. There's also a very large area that I didn't really know what do do with, and I didn't get any advice about to do with it.
I didn't get any advice about what might be a good idea if I resell the house in the future, how light switches should be organized, where bathrooms should be placed, or the potential problems with overhead pipes etc. Things that I don't think about as someone that has never finished a basement. The stairs got completely overlooked, so a change order had to be put in flooring to match the basement, but now it doesn't match anything else in the staircase. I'm looking at completely redoing the staircase in the future.
Fortunately in the end it worked out for the most part, but if I were to recommend them to someone else my advice would be to think very carefully about exactly what you want before contacting them. He will give you exactly what you ask for and nothing more, which is why I would classify this as a 4 star experience rather than 5.
Steve coordinated the project and made sure all of the contractors were on-board and up to speed on my project!

GuildQuality partners with it's member companies to survey their customers and collect detailed feedback on their behalf. By administrating surveys as an unbiased third party we ensure that customers have the opportunity to express their true feelings about a project and that members get the most accurate and detailed feedback possible.
When a survey contains the "Review" question, that customer's answer will show up on the member's profile page as a public review. Members have the option to turn off reviews but cannot hide individual reviews. It's all or nothing. This means that any reviews you see on a GuildQuality profile page are real comments left by the customer and verified by GuildQuality.
Each item listed under "Customer satisfaction" represents a specific question asked by GuildQuality to customers of Finished Basements LLC as part of our survey process. The bar graph and percentage next to the question stand for the percentage of respondents that were "Satisfied" about that particular question.
A customer is considered satisfied about about a question if they answered with 4 or more stars out of 5. For example if the "Communication" question is at 95% satisfaction that means that 95% of survey respondents answered that question with 4 or more stars out of 5 possible stars.More about surveys
