  • Finished basement in Pine Hills Plymouth This winter my wife and I contracted with Rob Meader www.TheFinishedBasement.Net to finish a significant portion of our basement, including a large section for entertaining and media viewing, a study area and a full bathroom. We are extremely pleased with the results. Rob worked with us to meet our specific objectives. His craftsmen were skilled, neat, clean, pleasant and cooperative. The work was finished on time. Rob did an excellent job of keeping us informed of any changes in the schedule, of which there were few, and any unanticipated issues were dealt with quickly and satisfactorily. His price was fair and competitive. We will choose him again should the opportunity arise!

  • Finished basement with home theater, playroom, storage and full bath plus a remodeled full bath upstairs "My husband and I saw one of Rob's advertisement signs by Lowe's. We already had three other estimates that were all pretty much the same price. We decided to get one more and called Rob. Rob showed up for our estimate and immediately gave us a reference list and gave us an idea of the approximate cost per square foot. We trusted him from day one and the biggest bonus was that his estimate was well under the others!
    As far as the construction process, it went very smoothly. We loved Rob's team. They were knowledgeable, trustworthy, considerate and very polite. They made great recommendations and some of those recommendations saved us money!
    The end product is gorgeous! It flows beautifully from the rest of the house. We absolutely love it! We have told everyone we know about Rob and his team. We have even called had his guys back to do other work on our house. What a terrific group of men and women Rob has assembled! And Rob is the best!"

  • Finished Basement: Kid’s craft & play area, full wet bar, Gas fireplace, full bath, living room with home theater We’d like to thank Rob and his team very much for all of the great work they did finishing our basement, we are extremely happy with the end product! We came across Rob through his ad in the Boston Globe and contacted him for an estimate. To our surprise he was able to stop by that very day. We found him to be very prompt, professional, personable, full of great ideas, as well as competitively priced. In addition, he was able to deliver on some major work that other estimating contractors said they would be unable to accomplish—Thanks again for being able to remove those poles!
    With our busy schedules we liked the idea we could communicate with Rob via email and he was very timely returning all messages. Rob along with all of his guys were awesome to work with and quite accommodating with any changes we made along the way. We are very happy to recommend Rob Meader and his team. He’s made our finished basement an extension of the rest of our home - Thank You!

  • Finished Basement and Family Room We found Rob Meader through an ad in the Boston Globe. Our experience working with Rob and his crew was great from start to finish. From planning the job and understanding the building code requirements, to the work process itself, and dealing with the inevitable changes and surprises that arise, Rob and his crew were true professionals and a pleasure to deal with throughout.
    The quality of the work was excellent as well, and our kids, family and friends use the new space constantly. We love the new room and it is definitely teen proof.

  • Finished Basement, Gym and Workroom When we decided to finish our basement we intended to obtain three quotes. Since Rob Meader had contacted us directly, we started with him. We found Rob to be professional, intelligent and a gentleman and we felt an instant trust and rapport with him. His quote was reasonable and we were so impressed we decided to look no further. It was a good decision!
    We had an idea of how we wanted to divide the space, but working with Rob brought the design to a whole other level. Rob kept us informed of the progress as he kept the project moving. He came in on budget and on time. We were particularly impressed with the quality of Rob’s crew. Without exception they were courteous, engaging and considerate and their work was top-notch.
    The outcome was dramatic – a finished project that far exceeded our expectations. The space is classy, bright and cozy and not at all a run-of-the-mill basement makeover. All who see it are impressed and it has become a wonderful extension of our home.

  • Finished Basement/Pine Hills We had not considered having our basement finished until I saw the construction work Rob Meader was doing at Don and Maggie’s house in the Pine Hills. My wife and I immediately decided we should so something similar – using the same contractor as they were using. Rob was a real pleasure to work with. He was able to take our ideas for the basement and make them a reality for the finished product – the cedar closet under the stairs, built-in bookcase and cabinets in the office area, the half wall, and the bar area. His team of skilled contractors was top-notch. Unlike many stories you hear about contractors, they showed up on time and cleaned up before they left. This added about 1000 sq ft of new living space for us. Even though we already had more than adequate living space in our home, having such an exceptional finished basement has really completed our retirement dream house. We are extremely pleased with the finished product, as it gives us a great area for entertaining, allowing a place for the grandchildren to run around, and a home theater set up for continual enjoyment.

  • Office, Full Bath and Media Room My husband and I are more than thrilled that we decided to hire Rob to do our basement construction. We saw his ad in the newspaper and figured it wouldn’t hurt to get his estimate along with the other one we had. Much to our delight, Rob came in several thousand dollars less without eliminating the high quality we insisted upon. I must add that while his estimate was a contributing factor in our decision-making process, his personality, intelligence, and “trustability” came through loud and clear and clinched the deal. The people that work for Rob were wonderful. To a person, they were polite, not too noisy, very knowledgeable, and considerate of our privacy. What a great bunch of folks he has on his team! We made several adjustments and changes as we went along and Rob and his workers were happy to accommodate us and even made some suggestions that saved us some money to boot! As for the finished product, we couldn’t be happier. We have a wonderful area where we can entertain, watch movies, and play with our grandchildren. Also, Don’s new office is a place where he can enjoy his workday and feel very comfortable and stress-free. I hate to even call it the basement because it is now so much a part of the house that we need to think of another name for this fabulous new living space! Rob is a true delight and a real class act. We’re actually going to miss him!

  • Finished Basement We recently decided to finish our basement and are so happy that we hired Rob Meader for the job. We found him through an advertisement in the Sunday Globe. We were not sure what to expect, but Rob was extremely professional, courteous, and personable. He had great attention to detail and was very accommodating to the changes we wanted along the way. The project was reasonably priced and completed much earlier than we anticipated. There were not the endless delays that you often hear of with contractors. He addressed all of our concerns and kept the project running smoothly with his team. We love our new room and our one year-old daughter loves her new play area. We would definitely recommend Rob to our friends and family.

  • Finished BasementWe recently bought our first home and wanted someone to finish our basement. Upon finding Rob Meader through Craig’s List, we took a gamble and it paid off big time! We contacted Rob and he gave us a great price. Not only is he professional to work with but very personable as well. We immediately felt comfortable with him from the start. We are very happy with the results.
    We want to thank Rob and his team for the fantastic job they did on our basement project. The finished basement looks wonderful and the change is absolutely dramatic. Once dark and dreary, it is now bright, warm, and cozy. The attention to detail was amazing and their ability to accommodate our requests during the project was second to none.
    His recommendations were excellent and right on the mark. It was those little extra touches that made the finished product so unique. His team of workers were professional, courteous and accommodating. We've been receiving glowing compliments from our family and friends. We highly recommend Rob Meader and will definitely be contacting him for future remodeling projects.

  • Finished Basement Rob Meader’s team recently completed a finished basement for our family. The project ended up being just under 1600 sq ft, so needless to say it was more complex than a standard finished basement room. Rob was always professional and courteous, and addressed any concerns promptly. Although we had visions of what the space would look like, it actually looked better than we had anticipated. Our home is only about 4 years old, and Rob paid special attention to making the finish work match that of the main house. It is really a pretty seamless transition from the 1st floor to the basement- which really doesn’t even feel like a basement anymore. I would be happy to recommend Rob Meader and his team.

  • How Much does it cost to finish a basement?

    The costs vary from job to job, but in Massachusetts and much of New England the range of costs is from $ 25 per square foot to $45 per square foot. Usually the costs are around $30 per square foot, which is one fifth the cost of an addition, which run at $150 per square foot at a minimum. Typically smaller basements cost a little more than larger ones per square foot and there are a number of factors that can influence the costs of finishing your basement, like finished flooring, bathrooms, custom built-ins, bars and other custom features.
