Don McCarver finished my home basement for me and did an amazing job. He was very easy to work with, offered sound advice and expertise and made certain the basement’s design and finishes were consistent with the overall design of the house. The finished product blended perfectly. He exhibited great attention to detail with quality workmanship, while still keeping within my budget. His subcontractors were all very friendly, trustworthy, reliable and professional. The job was completed within the timeframe that Don quoted. I would highly recommend his services.

Being 1800 miles away from our basement project, we relied on Don for everything. From the creativity in the design to the concern for our budget while still maintaining superb quality, Don made the whole process pleasant. He even took care of some repair issues to the rest of our home saving us from having to find someone from afar. Any such construction project can be stressful. Undertaking one when you cannot be present can make it even more so. Our basement project was done without stress and within our budget.
Thanks to Don, our home has a basement that is more than just a living space. It is a beautiful addition that we enjoy daily. We are truly thankful for the day we were given Don's number to call as someone who we could trust to do a professional job in our absence.

We had the pleasure of working with Don and his crew for a full remodel of our kitchen and the build of a wet bar/kitchenette in our basement. From demo to final finish the entire crew was professional, competent and thorough. We appreciate the suggestions for design and function, taking into consideration our plans and needs. We trusted the crew and their competence. They worked with us throughout the projects and always achieved satisfactory resolution as we worked through issues. They arrived when scheduled and did their job. We would not hesitate to invite Don and his crew back into our home for another project and hope we have the opportunity to work together again. Highly recommended.

Besides our basement, Don McCarver has redone our kitchen. We are very pleased with the workmanship. The cabinet choices of style and finish was great and we used a finished sample of our wood to help choose the granite top. (A large sample of the granite would also be helpful to choose the backsplash.). We chose large drawers instead of cabinets on the lower part as they hold so much more and are very convenient. We would highly recommend Don and his subcontractors to anyone.

Don first remodeled my wife’s cousin’s basement and then was hired to do her uncle’s basement. He did an impressive job for both of them. We looked around when we wanted to remodel our basement. Don came in with the lowest bid and he designed the basement for only $200 (others wanted over $1,000 just for the design). He prides himself on leaving every day with a completely clean work area (unheard of in the construction community). He has been in the basement world for many years and his subcontractors all arrive on the day planned and complete their work on schedule. From start to finish, the basement remodel took about 6 weeks. The price, quality, and responsiveness was unbelievable.
Don and his subcontractors were also very punctual and all were professional. We have posted information regarding Don's service on Angieslist.com, as well as some of his subcontractors, as they were also all top notch. My wife’s uncle moved to Longmont and the first person that they called was Don to complete their new basement. Don is a valuable family asset that we wanted to let others know about. He came in on time and on budget. Every time we did a change order, Don and his crew worked with us to understand the change in overall cost. Don has an eye for detail. You would never know that the basement was done 10 years after the rest of the house. The doors, molding, and wall finishing exactly match the rest of the house.

I have had the pleasure of working with Don McCarver on a major project at my home. We hired Don to do a turn-key basement completion for us. This was a fairly large project that encompassed over 1,000 sq. feet of raw cement unfinished basement.
Don and his sub-contractors were extremely careful to cause as little distraction as possible to the rest of our home, and our lives. Don kept the job site clean and was able to, with the help of an ingenious zippered door device, partition off the rest of the house from the dust and dirt. During the framing and construction Don was very helpful and courteous. Don brought a wealth of experience that enabled us to create some very special custom touches in our project with minimal expense.
Don's prices were better than most of the quotes we received, and his workmanship and the finished project was far superior to what we looked at in our initial search for a contractor. Perhaps the most compelling aspects of working with Don was his desire to assure that we were getting what we wanted ... and his honesty. As with any large project, there were small hiccups, but Don always quickly resolved any problems and went the extra mile to insure that everything was as close to perfect as possible, and that all aspects of the project met our wants and needs.
I would strongly recommend Don to anyone considering a home remodeling project or basement completion.
Jim Gardner, Longmont
We are delighted to recommend McCarver & Sons to anyone contemplating finishing a basement. Don has an uncanny knack for looking at a raw basement and visualizing the finished space. He can take your "general idea" and give it reality. Don and his crews work around YOUR life and schedule...we hardly knew they were here. They arrived after we left for work and were gone when we got home. When small unexpected glitches arose as they do with any project -- as they do with any project -- Don checked with us before proceeding. He matched all the materials and design elements of the rest of our house so it appears the basement was finished in the initial build. He finished on time and on budget. If you've put off finishing your basement for fears of finding a quality, reliable builder, the wait is over. You've found your guy.
Rich and Lana Lathrop, Longmont
Don McCarver has finished two basements for me and my family in the last five years or so, both new residences. We have been extremely happy with the finished products and their cost. We got vaulted ceilings and other special features, such as a wet bar and shelved walk-in closets. The structural quality has been excellent in both basements, and we would also rate the aesthetic features as excellent. I really have no complaints, and would welcome any further questions on my basements.
Doug Wesley, Golden
I want to tell you how pleased we are with our recent basement remodel. We were especially impressed with the quality of the work, the timeliness of completion and the courteous and pleasant attitude both you and the other contractors showed during the process. We appreciated your follow-up and scheduling, and the fact that people showed up as scheduled and kept us informed at all times. Thanks for a great experience. You have our highest recommendation for anyone considering similar remodeling.
Joe and Barbara Fritz, Longmont
Don and his crew did a great job on our basement. He kept us up-to-date during each phase of the construction project, stayed within his cost proposal and finished on time. They did a wonderful job of keeping the dust and dirt out of the upstairs, and cleaned up at the end of each day. I would use Don on any future project(s) and recommend him for any construction needs.
Lars & Kathy Kemp, Loveland
We were very impressed with McCarver & Sons, LLC. Our home was a show home, so when we wanted to finish the basement, we wanted it to match the upstairs and keep that same feel as a show home. Not only did it match perfectly, but McCarver & Sons did everything they said they would for the price they stated. That's a rarity in the construction business.
Jack Darby, Johnstown
In 2004 we decided to have our basement finished. Being new to Colorado and Longmont, we spoke with several of our neighbors who used McCarver & Sons LLC of Longmont, Colorado. After viewing their projects, we contracted our basement project with Don. With his expertise, he helped us plan and design and turn our cluttered basement into a large family room, guest bedroom, full bath, wet bar, and hobby space ... while providing plenty of storage space within our budget.
We found McCarver & Sons to be very professional and courteous, providing excellent workmanship and attention to detail. His subcontractors for electrical, plumbing, etc. were just as efficient and showed up as scheduled, completing our project within the timeframe agreed to. Therefore, we do not hesitate in recommending Don to anyone who is interested in having their basement finished, or any other home projects done, with the expertise and workmanship provided by McCarver & Sons.
Ann Marie & Murth Murthy, Longmont
We are very pleased with the work that McCarver & Son did on finishing our basement. They created a living space that is enjoyable and blended with the rest of the house. Don provided wonderful ideas on designing the personality of the space. And, his management of the project from start to finish was exceptional. We highly recommend McCarver & Son to anyone and will look to them for future remodeling projects.
