"You came and visited our basement & had a quote to us in less than 24 hours."

We pride ourselves on providing potential clients with the names address’s and phone numbers of our current and very last 20 clients, something we feel NO other basement finishing contractor would or could do.

We expect and insist that potential clients call our references and those of other contractors in their evaluation process. If a contractor cannot give you at least ten recent references, they would not be worth pursuing further.

We believe our quality workmanship, knowledge, professionalism and reputation will make us your first choice above all others.

Here is what some of our clients had to say.

A Renovation for Breakfast Television's Kevin Frankish

City TV’s Breakfast Television Host Kevin Frankish gives GoodLife a candid look at his latest home reno It could be described as almost a pet peeve of his, but Kevin Frankish really didn’t like the idea of a dark tunnel entrance leading to a dungeonlike basement. After his kids grew out of their “bouncing around” stage he and his wife Beth decided it was time to rid their home of such a nuisance.

The married couple of 21 years recently renovated their home of almost eleven years, in the south end of Barrie, turning a plain, unfinished basement into a retreat for both kids and parents. “We wanted something that would make it part of the house … so that was the one criterion we started out with,” said Kevin. “We wanted it to be open from the upstairs; we didn’t want a tunnel to the basement.”

Client Testimonials



We wanted to write you a personal reference from us for all of your future clients to read.

We believe strongly that first impressions are very important. When we decided to finish our basement we called Basement Concepts first. You came and visited our basement and had a quote to us in less than 24 hours. 

Is was not the quote that sold us, it was the sixth sense we had that you were indeed the man who could create the vision we had for our basement and we were right. We are so absolutely thrilled that we went with our feeling. You have finished our basement well above our expectations. Each and every time we go downstairs it is hard to believe that this is our home.

Your workmanship, professionalism and dedication to us and our basement was just simply out of this world! We wish you much success in the future.

Once again Thank you for everything.

Kim and Kevin Anderson.


We have been remiss in not emailing you sooner but we wanted you to know just how very much we enjoyed our basement over the Christmas holiday.

We put our tree downstairs and it looked beautiful. While most of the other decorations have been taken down, the tree up minus everything but the lights remains up and the room still glows and has a wonderful warmth to it.

Our three grandchildren quite enjoyed being able to run around the big room and play with all of their Christmas toys.

We also did a fair bit of entertaining and always used the downstairs to the delight and amazement of our guests.

Hope all is well and that your business looks solid through 2010.

Best wishes,

Peter & Phyllis Fletcher
