JH Basement Finish - Testimonials
After looking at several companies we went with JH Basement Co. and are so glad we did. Joseph Hannah was very helpful in giving us ideas how to finish the 1300 sq. ft. project. They were able to start the job immediately and surpassed our deadline to complete the job. Every step of the way was done with very professional people. The electrician, plumber, painter and Joe’s sons were great! Joe’s upmost concern was customer satisfaction. He returned our calls in a timely manner and made frequent visits to assure our job was meeting his highest standards.
The finished basement far surpassed our expectations. We now have a full house instead of the half finished house. We love the special touches he suggested and we feel the basement has added great value to our home.
Thank you JH Basement for a great experience. We would highly recommend them to anyone!

JH basement came highly referred by a neighbor who had recently had their basement finished by them. My wife and I were completely "wowed" by the work that was done in our neighbor's basement and we knew we had possibly found the right contractor for our basement project. Our initial impression of Joe was great! Joe showed up at our house on-time with a great attitude and creatively walked us through all the options to consider for the best layout of the basement. Almost immediately we agreed on a perfect layout for the best use of the space, with great options my wife and I never thought of. Joe came off as very honest and straight forward and never once used "pushy" type sales tactics. Joe gave us a ballpark quote for the total job and guaranteed to have a computer generated layout of the basement along with a more detailed quote within a day or two. We met with Joe a couple of days after our initial visit and reviewed the excellent computer generated layout as promised, with several other options and upgrades to consider. Joe's prices seemed very fair and my wife and I were eager to get started. Joe's team showed up in force on the agreed contract start date and within moments, hammers were swinging! Joe and his sons were excellent to work with and all the sub-contractors were top notch (many of whom have been working with Joe for more than 15 years). After initial framing was started we decided on a few changes and without hesitation Joe made it happen. Joe spent the time needed to ensure that all the finishes were exactly what we wanted, and was more than patient with several more requested changes as the project progressed. We are incredibly pleased with the finished result of our basement and we have received numerous compliments from house guests as well. In the end, we ended up with a great theater/multipurpose room with built in projector screen and speakers, wet bar and bathroom with many custom finishes, additional kids play area, and sizable guest bedroom. I highly recommend JH basement without hesitation, and will be happy to be a reference for anyone considering JH basement for their future basement project.

When I went to finish my basement I had a lot of reservations… am I going to get my investment back? How much money will it take to do it right?
What design/layout to go with? Will it match the upper levels? How painful will the process be - managing contractors, dust/mess, cash flow?
As such, I shopped 3 different companies. I ended up going with Joe and JH basements. I couldn't have been happier.
Joe showed up with a very personal approach. He helped me through the design based on my needs and put the right living space together.
More importantly - he walked through the upgrades that would really make it classy, match the upper levels of the home, and allow me to get the return
I needed on the investment. Joe uses steel framing and as such - there was virtually no mess. He was very conscientious of his work environment
and provided almost no interruption to our daily lives. The proof is in the work -
We truly enjoyed the space he created and everyone that we entertained was blown away with the customization.
Well…our plans changed. Normally - in such a quick time after finishing a basement you'd be stuck with the costs when trying to sell your house…
well, I just listed my house and according to the realtor and buyers- the basement was the selling point.
I had 14 showings in 9 days - in which time I sold my house for 98% of the asking price.
Recouped my entire basement investment and really enjoyed it the 2 years we were in it!

completed our basement finishing process with JH Basement Finish, and our experience was very positive. We checked references
prior to signing a contract with JH Basement, and those references were all positive. The initial proposal was very competitive,
so we decided to go with JH Basement Finish. The project was completed on time, and the contracted amount (and agreed
to upgrades) were met. No surprises at all.

To whom it may concern, We have used Joe at JH Basement to finish our basement and we couldn't have been any happier with the results. Not only Joe did an awesome, creative job but also he finished earlier than his promised dead line. Joe gave us a reasonable price compared to the other contractors,and he did not go over the agreed budget. He was very professional, prompt and clean with his work. We can't brag enough about him and his work. We had a tough time moving, because we didn't want to leave our beautiful basement. We ended up selling our house in 2 months even when the real estate market was so slow. Our buyers fell in love with the house especially the basement that Joe finished for us. It really helped adding a great value to the house we sold. If you have any queastions, please don't hesitate to call us - Joe (owner) has our telephone number.

As an avid viewer of HG channel "Holmes on Homes" & "Holmes Inspection", I was very wary of hiring a contractor to finish my basement. I spent lots of time researching before I decided on JH Basement. I could not find anybody with anything bad to say about JH in the last 20+ years. I am a businessman myself & I know you do not win all those BBB awards if you do shoddy work.
I signed the contract to have them add 2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms & a large entertainment room. Not only were they the lowest price but they quoted the shortest finish time 6 weeks. Everything went very smoothly. If I had any questions or concerns Joe would get back to me right away and my basement turned out better than I could imagined. It flows with the rest of the house, which is exactly what I wanted.
We now spend more time in the basement than in the rest of the house.
I would (and have) recommend JH Basement to anyone.
Before choosing JH Basement I researched several other contractors and found Joes work was the best quality for the money. We called several of his references and even went over and viewed their basements. We made several design changes along the way and Joe was very helpful in guiding us through the process. His workers were all very qualified and did excellent craftsmanship. I especially liked the tile and granite work done in the basement and found it to be outstanding quality work! We did a theatre seating entertainment area, bedroom,bathroom, and full bar area. We even used his carpet company to finish our entire home. Joe was always available to come over and discuss any concerns and changes to the project. He was good at communicating when work was to be done, what to expect along the way, and a completion date. He helped keep us on track on our budget also which was a plus! I have already talked with him to redo our bathroom and other house remodel projects. I would recommend Joe and his company to anyone looking for trustworthy work....he will not leave you unhappy!

Joe Hannah is the best. My complex project in the basement included a bar, sauna, bedroom and large entertainment area. All work was finished in a timely fashion and to my complete satisfaction. He and his crew even helped move the mail ordered futon down to the basement. He worked hard to find good value on cabinets without sacrificing on design and quality. He even suggested installing a cat door so the cats could get to their boxes without having to go through the finished part of the basement. Everyone who sees my basement is extremely impressed with the beauty and design. Joe is an honest contractor and is true to his word. I would use him again, and recommend him unconditionally.
