Building Finished Basements that Last

1. You want to have a comfortable, beautiful finished basement, BUT you want it to last!

2. Most contracting companies use standard “above-grade” materials which is a recipe for disaster. These materials end up with mold and mildew and you have to tear out the whole basement and start over.

3. Total Basement Finishing contractors eliminate these problems by only using completely waterproof, inorganic & mold-resistant materials that are designed specifically for basements. You will have the basement you've wanted and it will last long as your house.

    J.C. Diner of Chicago, IL

    Customer Testimonial

              Catalyst did a fantastic job repairing our wall after it sustained water damage. I was greeted by the company owner in our first meeting, where he had a professionally prepared PowerPoint presentation touting Catalyst's credentials. They lived up to all their promises and even exceeded expectations. Since we live out of town, they put together a video clip and before and after pictures of the work, and emailed it to me. They mailed back our keys to our home address. They patched other holes in our walls from hanging pictures. And the list goes on and on. I can't speak highly enough of Catalyst's operation and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do any kind of remodeling on their home.

    Chris L. of Chicago, IL

    Customer Testimonial

              Catalyst did an excellent job remodeling our bathroom. One great thing was that work was done and progress was made every single day. There were NO days of living with construction without progress. Surprises (like an extra layer of tile below the tile being removed) were handled in a very matter of fact way. Post-completion touch-ups were done professionally and in a timely manner

    I have used Norway on numerous projects in the past and am always impressed with their work. I thought about writing this review today because I was talking to someone last evening who had visited my homes and he remarked that every one he entered he noticed and appreciated the design, the quality and the attention to detail. They are the best!

    Customer Review

    By Homeowner
    Homer Glen, IL

    Norway Builders was a pleasure to work with. When our financing didn't work out to be what we had expected, they came up with creative ways to save money so that our project could move forward. As a matter of fact, they had a better vision of what we wanted than the architect. Although the size of our project was reduced due to budget constraints, we still got everything we wanted. The workers were pleasant to be around, which was important since we were living in a construction zone. Many of the subcontractors said that they had plenty of work with their own companies. However, they were always happy to work on jobs for Norway Builders. That says a lot about how Norway operates; they are well respected by the subcontractors. Our project was finished on time and within budget. I would highly recommend Norway Builders, and will be contacting them when we decide to remodel our basement.

    Customer Review

    By J.V.
    Downers Grove, IL

    A year ago this week, Norway started an entire first floor renovation of our home. We built it in the late 1980's and it was overdue for a complete facelift. Norway Builders came highly recommended; friends had used Bob for a first floor renovation of their home and the results were breathtaking. This was comprehensive renovation; everything was removed from the first floor living space, all the floors were torn out, walls and windows were moved, structural supports introduced, a laundry room was moved, etc. Through it all Bob and Norway were there offering encouragement and guidance. Norway maintains a great network of professionals such that everything from the kitchen layout and cabinet design to the lighting plans, material choices, windows and finishes were in the hands of individuals that cared about the client and the finished project. We were even able to leverage his contacts to literally save thousands of dollars on the cost of appliances. Any renovation has its ups and downs, there is always an element of drama. When you open up a wall you never know what you will find. Our project was no different. Bob and his team always reassured us that there was nothing they hadn't seen before and solved each surprise with confidence and professionalism. Did it take longer than we expected? Of course, (we ran about a month over) but the delays that occurred were generally were the result of unexpected lead times, the temporary unavailability of materials, etc. So, would I recommend Norway? Absolutely. In fact Bob is currently remodeling my brother's home!
