Basement Remodel- 2010 Contractor of the Year Winner

2010 Contractor of the Year Winner- Basement Remodel in Madison, WI

Nov 5th. 2010 – A Better Home was awarded a win for our basement remodel in Madison, WI. Our winning category was Interior Remodel under $100,000.  The competition is run by NARI (The National Association of the Remodeling Industry).  Remodeling companies enter projects for judging in 15 categories. These categories include baths, kitchens, basements, exteriors, etc. with subcategories of different sizes and scope.  We placed 1st in our category for this basement remodel featuring the use of many salvaged architectural items.

Because there were many challenges with remodeling this basement, the end result was even more amazing. We made use of many salvaged items while finding creative ways to incorporate them. In addition, the fun, bright wall colors make the space feel less like a basement and more like a part of the home. 

Most of all these homeowners now enjoy their basement remodel with added storage, a new bedroom with egress, an updated bathroom and a great family entertaining space.
