CLIENTS NAME:  Randy & Robin Sellier
PROJECT LOCATION:  Pelham Manor, NY
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Removal of the concrete floor slab;  The entire basement was excavated mainly to provide more headroom, but also to address the issues of moisture and water, as well as the floor being out of level.  Over 60 cubic yards of dirt and concrete were hauled away!--  This created the perfect opportunity for installing hydronic (meaning water) radiant heat.  Imagine walking barefoot on a warm floor (around 100 degrees) instead of the opposite, a cold (50 - 55 degrees) concrete floor. This also greatly increase air quality, as a great part of excess humidity found in a typical basement is now history.  Now that in itself makes the basement quite inviting!
This walk-out lower level features two separate play areas, one for the pool table and one for the ping pong table.  There's a nice, cozy area between the rooms that serves as the home theatre/media room where the three children just love to "chill out" and gather around the plasma TV. There's also a small kitchenette equipped with an under counter refrigerator and a small microwave for when the kids "get the cravings".  This lower level (originally referred to as The Basement) would not be complete without a bathroom, so a powder room was added.  You simply can not have an entire floor or story without a bathroom, can you?
Also included:  Drainage work, extensive electrical and plumbing work, windows replacements, new stairs, new exterior door.  For the first time ever, we used a suspended ceiling;  We recommend drywall, but in this particular project it was simply a better fit
The new lower level features a stamped concrete floor ("English slate" pattern by Increte), as shown just above, for both the affordability, aesthetics and practicality..

CLIENT COMMENTS: 

"Sylvain Cote and Absolute Remodeling did an excellent work in finishing our basement. No part of the basement in our 75 year old home had been finished previously, and parts of the basement were occasionally wet. The project involved lowering a concrete floor to achieve necessary ceiling height, resolving water and drainage issues in the basement and backyard, finishing three rooms for use as game rooms and a media room, creating a powder room and wet bar, and cleaning up unfinished storage areas. My family has been very pleased with the results.

Sylvain brought a great deal of creativity and vision to the various challenges posed by the project. He has great problem-solving skills and a nice eye for design. The quality of the workmanship was excellent, and Sylvain readily agreed to correct anything that did not conform to his high standards. The work proceeded steadily and essentially on schedule, finishing only a few weeks later than anticipated because we did some additional work. We found Sylvain to be honest and straightforward in his dealings with us. The contract was detailed and specific, the only extra expenses were for work clearly outside the scope of the original job, and Sylvain was open and forthcoming in providing credits for any work we decided not to do. His employees were also professional, careful and considerate.

In short, our project proceeded as smoothly as possible, and our finished basement looks beautiful. I would certainly work with Absolute Remodeling again."

Sincerely,
Robin Sellier
