4/17/2016 I found Basement Masters on Angie’s List and, because of the outstanding reviews, decided to get a quote from them in addition to another local company who I’ve had experience with in the past. From the first meeting with Pavel, I was extremely impressed with the efficiency and transparency of how he runs his business. He is extremely organized and makes the most of technology via his iPad and various software applications. He sat down with me and,...

4/17/2016 We have worked with many contractors in the past, as our house was a fixer upper. I wish I had discovered Pavel earlier because the basement is now the nicest part of our house. We had our roughly 1300SF basement finished by Basement Masters, and could not be any happier with the results. This was a very large project, which required converting our underground basement into a...

4/17/2016 We used this Basement Masters to have our basement completely remodeled to include a new bathroom, a bedroom and a kitchenette. Pavel is an expert at what he does. From beginning to end he demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the entire project (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc) and was extremely efficient and professional. He offered excellent suggestions on design but also bent to our preferences as they came up.

4/17/2016 I began the process of interviewing contractors starting in January of 2014. I had a good idea of what I wanted to do after looking at pictures online and research of basement-related issues. When Pavel came to see us, I knew he was our guy. Although he seemed rushed, he took measurements, pulled out an...

2/24/2016 From the first meeting, after already getting 4 other quotes, I was BLOWN AWAY. The team at Basement Masters has basement remodeling down to a science, and the first consultation was informative and clearly showed an understanding that all the others lacked. From the first meeting, I trusted...

4/17/2016 We recently remodeled our original 1980s-style basement with Basement Masters, and we are extremely happy with the end results. Our remodel was extensive; we added a full bathroom, converted a hallway and closet into a larger guest room, consolidated our laundry room, and added a wet bar and entertainment area with soundproofing. When we were looking for the best...

4/17/2016 Basement Masters was impressive from the initial meeting. Their prompt communication, detailed explanations, personal meetings, expansive portfolio and transparent pricing led us to pick them for our large renovation project. Our project was begun and completed on schedule. All work was built and finished to a high quality standard. The estimation and design process was clear, and the final cost of the project (barring any customer changes) was clearly stated...

Columbia, MD
4/17/2016 Doing this project with Basement Masters was actually a very enjoyable experience. I had a vague idea of what I wanted and Pavel Abaev was able to pick up on that and make it a reality. The first night he came out, it was after dark and...

Fulton, MD
4/17/2016 Basement Masters did an outstanding job finishing 1000 sq. ft. basement. I got estimates from 4 contractors, all found through Angie's list. Pavel impressed me right away with his straight forward very organized and itemized estimate. He was very competitive with the others but the others were just not...
James and Agnes O'Connell,
Marriotsville, MD
4/17/2016 After deciding to finish the basement, we interviewed five contractors. Most of the contractors came with a tape measure and took some notes and promised to get back with us. Almost all of the contractors came back with a lump sum quotes with very little breakout. We were more interested in line item costs so we could add or delete per our budget.
Jason and Shauna Vlosich,

4/17/2016 We highly recommend Basement Masters. From the first consultation to the last walk-through, Pavel and his crew were professional, respectful, and courteous. Pavel was quick to understand the big-picture of how we wanted the finished basement to look. It was obvious to us that one of...

Severna Park, MD
4/17/2016 We were referred to Basement Masters from a friend, and couldn't have been happier with our experience! There are so many unique things to consider when remodeling a basement (water/flooding, pipes, septic, etc.) And I was glad to have a team that specialized in basements. They were professional and finished well ahead of projections! Pavel,...
Paul and Darlene Mattocks,
Columbia, MD
4/17/2016 I found Basement Masters on Angie's List and could not be happier. From the first meeting it was clear to us that Basement Masters was the contractor to hire. We had our basement with wet bar, full bathroom and two storage areas completely finished in our home. Pavel, from day one, was professional, knowledgeable and ALWAYS available whenever we had questions, either by phone or text. Having an organized brochure, which lists the project cost breakdown, was a great tool to keep track of the budget.

4/17/2016 I interviewed three contractors for this job, and the prices were remarkably similar. Two of the three estimated 2 weeks to complete the job. Frankly, this sounded unbelievable to me. Pavel of Basement Masters estimated 6-8 weeks - in my experience, a lot more likely. Still, I pressed Pavel for the reason that his estimate was so much longer than the others. He proceeded to reel off every task that had to be done, the order in which they had to be done, how long each would take, which ones could overlap and which could not, and why.

4/17/2016 My husband and I spend a great deal of time in Maryland at my daughter’s house with her, our son-in-law, and our grandson. When they announced that they were expecting another child, we decided to renovate their 1000 square foot basement into a comfortable space...

4/17/2016 We bought our next home and wanted to finish the basement. We got quotes from several contractors. Pavel's quote was not only reasonable, but also very clear, everything is clearly priced in the booklet, no hidden gimmicks. We felt very comfortable with him, he was not pushy, always quick to respond via text or email. In the end we felt we've made the best choice and can't be happier with his crew. His crew arrived on time everyday to work in the house.

4/17/2016 If you are reading this review, then there is no need to look any further. Basement Masters sets the industry standard and far exceeded my expectations in my recent 1400 SF complete basement renovation. Their competitive pricing, superior attention to detail, impeccable cleanliness & courtesy and ability to adhere to a very strict timeline sets Basement Masters apart as the BEST!!! Pavel, the owner, is probably the most knowledgeable, dedicated...

4/17/2016 If you are searching for a contractor to finish your basement, you needn't look any further - Basement Masters is the one. The quality of their work is second to none; and their price is more than competitive. We couldn’t be happier with our basement, and we’ve never met a more organized, professional and meticulous general contractor than Pavel Abaev.
Miriam Nager,
Silver Spring, MD
4/17/2016 From start to finish, this is how working with a contractor should be. We obtained quotes from 2 other contractors before decided to move forward with Pavel and Basement Masters. One of the other contractors was perfectly nice and provided a reasonable quote, but it was clear that basements were not their expertise. The other contractor must have upcharged every item by more than 200%, because the quote we obtained from them was outrageous.

4/17/2016 I cannot overstate how fantastic it was working with Pavel and Basement Masters. Our case was especially awkward as the work was being done in Ellicott City and I live in Coral Springs, Florida. During my visits to Maryland, I met with 9 contractors before deciding to go with Basement Masters. My daughter, son-in-law (at whose house the work was being done) and I were amazed at Pavel's honesty, patience, and insistence on quality without increasing his original price.

4/17/2016 Pavel is the ultimate professional. He made a big impression on us the first day discussing our basement remodel. I would describe him and his team as experienced, efficient, responsive, and most of all trustworthy. He certainly takes his work with a sense of pride. We consulted several contractors on our basement, Pavel is the only one who is able to provide us with a detailed price break down the first day. And his price is actually very reasonable.
Catharine Rector,
Chevy Chase, MD
4/17/2016 Working with Basement Masters was a wonderful experience! I read tons of reviews online and we got several quotes prior to starting our project. We wanted to add a bathroom which meant drilling into the basement floor...something that made me very nervous. Pavel was actually our first quote - he gave us a brochure that included EVERYTHING - prices, insurance, etc. and talked us through the project. I immediately trusted him. After several other quotes I still wanted Basement Masters and the prices were good compared to some of our...
