    Customer Testimonial

              Carl amd Chris are wonderful, they really care about the customer and not just about making money from them. The difference in my laundry room is dramatic, they only insisted I install a Sani Dry to clean and filtrate my air. They didn't ty to talk me into any insane sales pitch, they kept it about the problem I had in my basement and that is all. I would use Tri-State Total Basement Finishing without a doubt!

    Joana S. of Flanders, NJ

    Customer Testimonial

              I've had livable space down in my basement for years where my son-in law and daughter lived, but they always would come upstairs and use the kitchen and bathroom. Of course I didn't mind, but thought it would be more comfortable for them if they had their own space. I called Tri-State Total Basement Finished and was so relieved when I did. With their help, we had the perfect sized kitchen and bathroom installed for them to have even more privacy then before.
