From Blah to Bliss

Matrix transformed our unfinished basement from unusable blah to a beautiful fully functional recreation room, great for watching sports or entertaining friends. Our renovation included a wet bar with cabinets, bathroom, sprayed ceiling, tile floors, and crown molding...all in a timely manner. Our foreman, Steve T., did an excellent job scheduling all work activity and keeping us informed. We are very pleased with the quality of work and professionalism of the crew, as well. (A special shoutout to Martinez, Mary/Wes,)

Matrix for Exotic Basements

We had a truly amazing experience with Matrix, who turned our basement into a paradise. It all started with the friendly Drew who was flexible to visit us after my office hours, patiently took all measurements and proposed a beautiful open design with a vast collection of exotic materials for flooring and everything else. All the agreed details were carefully captured in a detailed design proposal and nothing was left to any guess work. When the work commenced, Anthony took over and efficiently mobilized many of the contractors who were very professional and talented in getting things done perfectly. When we had a challenge with mounting our very heavy motorized projector screen, which was out-of-scope for Matrix, Brian the boss, stepped in and was super supportive in sending in one of their best to install a reinforcement and got the projector screen setup at no extra cost. We are very much satisfied with the basement and happy with the compliments we receive from each and every person who visits our home. I would recommend Matrix Basement to anyone who wants an exotic basement.

Best remodeling job ever

It all started with Ryan Wright, sales. He did a great job and was very professional and communicated with me through the decision process. He laid out a plan that was customer focused and provided his personal commitment. Once the contract was signed, Joe immediately connected with me to finalize the plans and make some very helpful suggestions to improve the project. Jamie V, the project manager was amazing. He did exactly what he said he and the team were going to do and when. I never had to follow up and Jamie was very proactive in communication. Over the years I have completed many project, like room additions, kitchens, baths, basements, garages...but this is by far my best experience and most professional company I have worked with.

Our basement remodel

We needed to update our existing basement and could not have been happier that we chose Matrix to do the work. They took the time to consult with us as to our needs and arrived with a plan that encompassed all of our needs. Our project was made all of the more difficult because our basement includes a fully functional model railroad layout that could not be moved and the workers could not have been better in working around this obstacle. Daniel and Victor were two of the most hardworking and meticulous individuals that you could ever ask for. Their attention to detail was outstanding. They handled those inevitable issues that arose very professionally and kept us informed every step of the way. We could not have been more pleased with Matrix Basements

Basement Transformation

We have an older home (1940’s) with a long narrow basement making it a challenge to efficiently utilize the limited space that we have. Matrix was amazing. Their skilled team of experts exceeded our expectations in finding ways to maximize every inch of our little basement, transforming it into an inviting and multi-functional living space. Shawn oversaw the process from start to finish making sure everything came together and Jose’ used his multiple talents and attention to detail to create new and attractive usable spaces throughout. One half of the basement is a remodeled tool room and laundry area complete with tons of added storage. The other half of the basement is a beautiful entertainment center complete with a wine bar and a full bathroom with shower. The detail work required to transform our basement was no easy task but Shawn and Jose’ found a way a way to pull it all together. Thank you Matrix.

Great Transformation

After years of ignoring our dated, dilapidated basement for anything but storage, we finally pulled the trigger on getting it updated. Thank goodness for Matrix! From the first day of their visit taking measurements, to the last day removing the lockbox, everyone we worked with was professional, highly skilled, and accepted all our mid-job adjustments to the plan with good grace and humor. Mark, Dan, Rolando, Andy and the whole crew--thank you for being as committed to our basement as we were! Instead of closing the door to the basement, we are now thrilled to visit a beautiful entertaining space, complete with viewing area, wet bar, and wine cellar. I would recommend Matrix to friends and acquaintances in a hearbeat.

We're so happy!

Thanks, Matrix! We were hesitant to buy because of some rough experiences with other contractors. So glad we got over it. Jamie and his team are outstanding. I work from home, and they respected the times I needed to be on calls. They were professional, courteous, and their work is great. We had several change orders in the process--they all were easy. Love the turnkey model. And the fire protection in the walls. Again, we're so happy! Thanks for restoring our faith in companies like yours.

Finally a space for two

Quick and efficient. The team worked within the timeframe they estimated even during the worst of the winter weather. I got my theater room and sports bar while my wife got her gym/dance studio. Loved the customization options, especially the blackout ceiling which gives a modern touch and more openness to the entire space. Shout out to Oscar and Romero, they were very professional and went above and beyond. One small upgrade we would reconsider is better flooring. The vinyl faux wood floor panels did not keep the save warm or cushioned.

Basement Transformation

Our complete basement remodel project with Matrix was a great experience! We’re thrilled with our “new” basement and it was a seamless process from the first meeting to the final punch list! Drew was able to help us re-imagine the space, changing the “footprint” of the room and adding more accessible storage space. Mike helped finalize our plans and guide us in our decision making process selecting doors, hardware, trim, flooring and carpet. The coordination of the various tradesmen was done by Anthony, so the Matrix company eliminates the need for the homeowner to coordinate various sub-contractors - a definite plus! Our construction crew - Ramiro and Oscar - were outstanding! They were punctual, happy to answer any questions and had a great work ethic. They paid careful attention to their craftsmanship and the details that make our room look amazing. Jay was responsible for the minor issues and touch ups on our punch list. He was friendly, efficient and obviously well qualified in all trade areas. We’ve received many compliments on our basement remodel project and definitely recommend Matrix!

Carol, thank you for taking the time to share your Matrix experience!

Finished Basement

Matrix was excellent to work with. Dealing with the entire team was hassle free and overall enjoyable. Everyone was professional, courteous, and it is clear that they are experts at what they do. Our basement was unfinished and we decided to work with Matrix because of the high quality products they use, the fact that we only had to work with Matrix for plumbing, electrical, drywall, etc., and the excellent craftsmanship that the Matrix team provides. Jamie, the foreman for our project, answered all questions and handled all of the scheduling with ease. Matrix brought our vision of what we wanted to life and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to finish or remodel their basement. Thank you, Matrix team!
