Jeff Caesar and Kyle Strouse have owned Colorado Custom Basements and Remodeling, LLC for over 3 years.  It has been an amazing start to a brilliant future due to the support from the community and our loyal customers.  We have been associated for over 10 years and decided working together was the right thing to do for our friends, customers and families.  Referrals are a very large portion of our business, so we encourage you to get in touch with us to find out why we are referred so often.  Our customers are not only customers, they are our friends in the beginning but especially by the end of the project.

Kyle and Jeff started this with the intent of providing incredible and ethical services to their clients.  Please know we do act and oversee your project as the general contract and in the spirit of getting permits on everything requires us to use sub-contractors to complete the work.  The reason for this is all our sub’s need to be licensed and registered with all the same 26 municipalities we are.  For them to do that they have to be a Master Electrician, Master Plumber, Master HVAC etc.  Our trades have been partnered with us for an average of 12 years.   They know what level of quality we expect and perform to our standards.  Rest assured, we work only with professionals.

We are also unique in that we set up sub accounts and fund your project off your money.  Our average down payment, depending on your scope of work, is between 11-13% and then we hit 6 other completion points prior to asking you for money.  We want to make sure you feel comfortable that work has been done prior to you paying.  You can ask more when we meet in person or via a virtual meeting.

At the end of the day we respect you and your family time and really want to be accommodating while being efficient at the same time.  Just call us and you will see when we talk that our passion is to make sure your family is happy.  We have many elated folks you can talk to.  At the end of the day we are just normal guys who care about people, pull permits and do your project right in the spirit of making your family safe and amazingly comfortable.  We absolutely stand behind everything we do.  Once you meet us in person or virtually, you will see the true give a care emotion.  Thanks for your time, Jeff Caesar – Owner
