    I can't recommend Empire enough. From the initial planning visit to the finished work on our basement, they were exceedingly professional and friendly. We chose the "budget" option where they leave the flooring, paint, and bathroom products to be finished by customer. However we were still given choices on every step of the process such as placement of lights, doors, outlets, etc. Everything was completed on the projected timeline and exactly on the initial budget.

    We are extremely pleased with Empire Remodeling and would highly recommend them. From early Dec 2023 to late Jan 2024 they did a white box finish on our ~1k sqft basement remodel including one bedroom and one full bath. Very reasonable pricing, solid communication and excellent delivery. The team has the process down! Very easy on us. Thankfully I didn’t waste the next 6 months of my life trying to do this myself. 🙏Special thanks to Bob who was project manager for our build!

    We hired Empire to complete a full finish of our basement and could not be happier with the outcome. The project came in on budget, on time, and their team was responsive and professional throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend contacting them if you're in the market for this kind of work.

    Empire was great to work with! They were quick to respond and worked with me through every detail of the project. They provided great craftsmanship and were very competitive with their estimates compared to other companies. They treated my family very kindly the entire time they worked in our home and were very clean. We loved working with Empire and would recommended them for any home improvement project!

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for your kind words. You and your family were great to work with. Your basement finish turned out beautiful. You did a great job with your color choices and design. We love it when our homeowner's vision all comes together and makes a beautiful space to make family memories.

    Finishing a basement can be one of the most expensive decisions a family can make outside of building/purchasing the home itself. When we built our home over ten years ago we left the basement un-finished to save on cost. Over the course of the following decade we had several bids from various companies and individuals. Empire offered a competitive price especially when you take into account their services offered. We heard of many first-hand accounts of people who went with individual contractors and had nothing but problems and a basement finish that took well over a year to complete. We had none of those problems. We’re incredibly happy that we picked Empire. They took our plans/ideas and offered their own professional suggestions to arrive at a final blueprint. The timeline they have laid out is incredibly organized and available online through a project manager called Buildertrend which can handle communications and change-orders. Once the work began our basement was completed on schedule in 3 months. All of their contractors, from the framers to the painters were awesome and very competent in their work. We even discovered an existing small leak with the main sewer line trunk. None of the couplings were ever cemented by our original builder. It’s a wonder that it was never more than a small drip. Empire’s plumber took apart the entire tree, re-built it, and cemented it practically for free. In the end our finished basement is absolutely perfect. We especially love the custom cabinetry we had built for the living room entertainment center and the bathroom. The placement of all the new HVAC vents is great, as is the new light fixtures and their different zones. We wouldn’t change anything and in fact kind of wish the rest of the house could match the finishing options in our new basement. We have recommended Empire to several neighbors and friends.

    Response from Company:

    Wow! Thank you for your review! We are always so happy when our homeowners are so happy. We appreciate you taking the time to go into so much detail. It really helps other homeowners to understand how important it is to us to make sure every job is a job well done. Again, thank you for your review.

    We love our basement finish from Empire Remodeling. They did a wonderful, quality job at a great price. I probably talked to 5+ companies for bids, and used Empire Remodeling based on their plan, price, and the recommendation of a friend who used them. They worked with us at every point of the remodel, and they were patient with us when changes were necessary during the remodel process. Thank you for our wonderful family living space!

    5.0 Karen B. Overland Park, KS

    We hired Empire to finish our basement. I could not have asked for a better experience. From the planning phase all the way to completion I do not have one complaint. If I reached out to our project manager, Bob, he would respond by email or coming by the site within 1 day. He would take time to explain to me the process and what to expect next. The people that did the actual work were very professional and very friendly. If I would go downstairs to check on progress they would always stop and talk to me, answering any questions I may have. The work that was completed was done well. They finished the project within the time frame and left me with a beautifully finished basement. I would use them again in a heartbeat and would strongly recommend them to anyone.

    5.0 Kurt G. Shawnee, KS

    The absolute best communications from a contractor I’ve experienced. The work quality was exceptional but I would recommend because of how easy they were to work with and how quick they responded to questions. Would work with them again anytime!
