When to Expect the Unexpected

With any remodeling project, there is a chance that something can go wrong. We could remove some tile or drywall and find that studs in the wall are molding. Or we could find that a heating and air conditioning duct is right in the way of your new doorway. Or the previous owner was a do it yourselfer and didn’t wire the electricity to code. At Back to Basics Builders, we take this stuff in stride because we have seen it all before. When this happens, we notify our clients immediately that we have run into something unexpected. In addition, there is no need to stress when we run into something like this because we will present you with several solutions that you can choose from to still make your vision come to life. Most importantly we will keep your project moving so that you can still enjoy the final product on time.

Basement Remodeling

Back to Basics Builders has a passion for well finished basements. Gone are the days when your basement was a dingy storage or laundry room. Today basements are where we play or entertain. Are you a self-proclaimed movie critic and would like a theater room? Do you like to host parties where you can serve your guests from a wide selection of spirits like you would find at a fancy downtown club? Do you like to wow your friends with your impressive pool or dart skills? Or do you just want a room where you can get away and enjoy the game in peace and quiet? We can do it all. There is no vision that is too fantastical when it comes to your basement. It is an open canvas that we can help you make into your own. As a premier home remodeling company in Milwaukee, we are well versed in all of the little intricacies that will make your basement shine. Bring us your ideas or ask us to bring ours. Together we can transform that old basement into living space you will never want to leave.

Kitchen Remodeling

Back to Basics Builders can take your old squeaky cabinet door kitchen and turn it into a functional masterpiece. Let’s face it, besides our bedrooms, our kitchen is where we spend the majority of time in our house. Not only does it need to be functional like a fast paced five-star restaurant, but it also has to feel comfortable too. Now, comfort comes in all different shapes and sizes for everyone and can be an old farmhouse style kitchen or it could be an ultra-modern black stainless steel kitchen. Whichever your preference, as a home remodeling company in Milwaukee, we can make your kitchen dreams come true. Just like in bathrooms, there are lots of below the surface things that really make your kitchen run efficiently. While there is not as much plumbing to worry about in a kitchen, there are a lot more electrical needs in this room. The stove, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher all need to be accounted for and the last thing you want is to plug in your toaster oven and reset a circuit breaker that your fridge is connected on. In addition, since we spend so much time in the kitchen, there needs to be enough lighting in the correct locations so there is no dark corners. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to cut your vegetables on a countertop that doesn’t have enough light. Our electrical experts have hundreds of kitchens of experience to know how to set it up just right for you. When it all comes together in the end, we know that you will be looking forward to spending more time using your kitchen every day.

Bathroom Remodeling

When it comes to your bathroom, this is where the most intimate of intimates happens. You want it to be comfortable and appealing to the eye. As a home remodeling company in Milwaukee, we can assist you with all of the personal touches that express your personality. Whether you would like a walk-in tub or a shower stall, a tiled floor or laminate floor, we can bring your vision into reality. There are a lot of pieces to the puzzle in a bathroom. It isn’t just the curb appeal or what you can see when you walk into the room. There is a lot beneath the surface, that if not taken care of correctly, can cause major problems down the line. Plumbing needs to be built correctly and ventilation needs to be working properly in order to make sure that we don’t have problems with water damage a year after the project is complete. Water damage is the number 1 reason that bathrooms start to fall apart. This happens both behind the walls (leaking pipes or shower not sealed correctly) and on the surface (steam causing walls to blister). While both of these are very easy to correct, they are also very easy to miss. Over the years we have learned what to look for in a plumber and guarantee that our behind the scenes work is top quality. This way you can rest easy knowing that you won’t have to worry about any leaks causing damage to your new bathroom. We guarantee that not only will you like how your bathroom looks on the surface, you will also know that everything underneath will last the life of your house.
