Matrix was a pleasure to work with during our Finished Basement project
Matrix was a pleasure to work with during our Finished Basement project. From the initial consultation through the completion, we were able to easily communicate and collaborate. Our Project *** was easy to get a hold of, quick to resolve any questions or concerns we had throughout the project. All subcontractors were professional, friendly and easy to work with. We are absolutely thrilled with the final project. Our basement is now the highlight of our home with space for the whole family and guests. We love the specialized features including hidden bookshelves and television/fireplace build out. Thank you for a wonderful experience and amazing finished basement.
We are very pleased with the result of our tub and shower upgrade
We are very pleased with the result of our tub and shower upgrade. The product look and quality of the installed tub and fixtures are as we had hoped and expected they would be. The installation crew did an excellent job for us. The crew kept me informed as they progressed through the job. My questions were answered clearly, and the suggestions provided throughout the installation were spot on. The clutter was kept to a minimum and the finished worked was cleaned as I had hoped. The work timeframe was exactly what Matrix sales had promised. We upgraded to a jacuzzi type of tub for our personal relaxation, the finished tub and shower provides what we had planned to achieve. I would recommend matrix home solutions.
We hired Matrix to finish our basement
We hired Matrix to finish our basement. Matrix has been one of the best choices we made for upgrading our house. They have been professional, efficient, and reliable. The work they have done and the manner in which the project has been executed has far exceeded our expectations. We referred Matrix to 2 friends who booked with them right away. We were especially impressed by the regular communication, access to the schedule/calendar and photos, as well as the stellar project manager ***. If something was off track, or if a member of the team missed anything, we hardly noticed because *** was there to inspect the entire project from start to completion and would troubleshoot on our behalf. We highly recommend Matrix!
I have to admit things started off a bit rocky
I have to admit things started off a bit rocky. Matrix had to reschedule our initial meeting a few times.. and when we finally had our first meeting, their sales tactic felt a bit aggressive. That said, working with Matrix has been insanely easy. Brian D provided us with great solutions to our layout issues, and our Project Manager Daniel was super responsive and knowledgeable. Even with all the projects he was managing, he always made us feel like we were on top of the list. Our team of subcontractors were all experts in their respective trades. Specifically, our carpenters, Oscar and Romero were amazing! Their attention to detail was impeccable. We are just a few days from completion, and I cannot wait to start furnishing our new living space. Thanks Matrix for making our vision come to life! With Matrix, you get what you pay for... quality work and a seamless process!
We chose Matrix because of the reviews we saw online
We chose Matrix because of the reviews we saw online. My wife did some thorough investigation into the company before chose out contracting company. They were great to work with from the beginning. Our sales rep *** was friendly and delivered what he promised. At each step we worked with good people who delivered information or product. The communication was great and we really appreciated the app that allowed us to see in real time what was being done and when. *** our project manager was exceptional. He was in constant communication with us and met our expectations at every turn. When he promised us a contractor would be there, they were. From start to finish we worked with good trades that delivered a quality product in a reasonable time frame and were professional. There was very little interruption to our lives or our main living area. We would highly recommend this company.
We had a basement stuck in the 70's
We had a basement stuck in the 70's. After 15 years of talking about getting a face lift, we had several people come by to see what they could do.Most offered options we did not like. Matrix spent a few hours going various options. Options we were not offered or even thought of by the others. The industrial ceiling they mentioned peaked our interest. ***s were great. Professional. Courteous. ON TIME! The Painters were great. Always open to questions, and always asked us for our input *** manager was always available for an update and always communicatd any changes. The Finished product looked exactly like the computer rendered drawing. After an initial hiccup in starting the project, the projected timeline was laid out and only took a week longed then anticipated, due to supply issues. My wife and I are very pleased with the finished project. . With ANY company - DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
Prepare for the hard sell technique
Prepare for the hard sell technique. When I contacted *** to get a quote for a basement remodel, everything seemed normal. However, the used-car salesman techniques started coming out almost immediately. I should have picked up on it. They had a scripted pitch that they wouldn't budge from. The provided sketchy and irresponsible financial advice on how to pay for the remodel. They remodel quote was at about triple what others quoted. Then they wouldn't leave. I told them that we had to leave at 4:00, but they wouldn't leave. As I left, he stayed and tried to get my wife to sign off of the ridiculous price. After he left, the phone calls and text messages started coming. I'm not sure about the quality of work they do because we didn't use them to finish the basement. However, if you want to use them, then (1) prepare for the used car salesman techniques and (2) get quotes from other contractors/builders as ***'s price was, in my opinion, outrageous. "
The complaint has been investigated and resolved to the customer's satisfaction.
Matrix Basement Finishing Systems created a great area for our family and friends to enjoy
Matrix Basement Finishing Systems created a great area for our family and friends to enjoy. Their quality of work and professionalism is superb, and they completed our basement on time and on budget! We were really impressed with their overall quality of work and attention to detail. Their lead supervisor Victor was attentive and engaged throughout the entire project to ensure each facet of the job was not only finished but completed correctly. Temo, our lead installer was excellent in his approach to everything from framing the walls, installing the doors and cabinetry, and installing the window and drywall. Also, their electricians and plumbers did a great job and were always on time and met their required schedules. Overall, we are incredibly pleased with the entire project as each team member was professional, thorough and courteous. The quality and workmanship typified their dedication in ensuring customer satisfaction. Matrix is a great contractor, provides quality workmanship, and we are very satisfied with our finished basement!
My wife and I decided it was time to finish our basement to have extra space so that we could have family and friends over to entertain and
My wife and I decided it was time to finish our basement to have extra space so that we could have family and friends over to entertain and enjoy it for years to come. After quoting with a number of companies, Matrix Basement Systems clearly was the company to choose. We had a basic idea of what we where looking for but with Matrixs design help really brought it to life, showing how it would look in a 3D image we where able to see and make changes easily, most importantly it gave us peace of mind how our basement was going to look when completed. Their builder trend app shows you very stage of the project work, material deliveries and the flexibility to plan ahead. I wanted to highlight *** our field manager, he was available to us 7 days a week to answer any questions we had and always responded back within minutes. His customer service skills and professionalism is second to none, he listened to our questions/concerns and was able to walk us through solutions or explain things that again gave us peace of mind, more importantly made us feel he was looking out for our best interest. Every contractor group involved where extremely great to have in our home, I work from home so spent some time with them while they worked.The transformation of our basement is jaw dropping. Truly mean it, we have had friends and family over, all where amazed at the top notch high quality job Matrix did for us. Certainly will recommend Matrix to anyone thinking of remodeling their basement
I made a mistake and signed the contract
I made a mistake and signed the contract. Then I looked in detail and asked the questions that I asked all of the other bath contractors I had over. This time I did not ask in time. If you go with Matrix, you will pay min 30% more than if you found a local contractor. Also if wait past the three days and want to cancel you will have to pay 30% of the total jobs as the cancellation fee even though nothing was done. I did not even do the confirmation call so they can order the product. There was miss communication about the loan. also, the interest rate is 7-10% for up to 180month but they got the payment to what we wanted. They talked about transparency, but I asked for a ballpark breakdown of labor, materials, and overhead. They could not be provided or they would have to charge me it is package pricing, not even ballpark % a verbal would have been fine. Seems like the more questions I asked the more non-answers I got. Prepare for the 3 hours with them do not take the first crazy amount they will discount and discount and discount at leased my sales rep was quick with them it was only an hour then the call to the boss for the final discounts to the point where you get it at a cost where the sales guy said he made no money HAHA. How about not giving me a free vacation for a week with the purchase and discount the price. They took all of my crazy calls and did not care how up site. They just said I happy I will be.. I hope they are right but I would not recommend anyone to use them unless you do not care and have extra money to spend.
The staff at Matrix is very professional and most people were extremely reliable particularly *** who oversaw the field activity, coordinated
The staff at Matrix is very professional and most people were extremely reliable particularly *** who oversaw the field activity, coordinated the trades people, kept close touch with experts on the Matrix team, addressed various issues, and clarified a lot of things that shouldve been brought up in earlier planning meetings I sincerely appreciate ***. He was like the glue that kept it all together. Accessible, understanding, knowledgeable, and very professional. everyone that he touched bases with was also very responsive as well (e.g. ***, ***) All team members (Trades and Office alike) were professional, polite and considerate. Also the Matrix project tracking tool (Buildertrend) was very helpful and informative. As a recommendation I would say that the earlier planning meetings could have covered more of what to expect in order to give the customer helpful suggestions so that they dont find them selves in a bind such as when appliances need to be ordered earlier and could not be stored downstairs during construction. that situation turned out to be one of the sticking points during the process Delays were also encountered (eg cabinets) but I do understand some of the problems they ran into logistically with supplies due to the Covid situation I do need to stress that the people involved in planning need to have a thorough explanation of what to expect and be proactive so that the Customer doesnt learn the hard way but thank God for *** because he helped resolve a number of things that came up while the project was being done and now I have a beautiful basement apartment that Im proud to say is a comfortable living space and a good investment. Overall Im quite pleased with the Matrix Team and will gladly recommend them to others interested in having remodeling work done to their homes.
We requested a wall in a certain place in the basement, *** kept insisting on putting the wall 5 less then where we wanted
We requested a wall in a certain place in the basement, *** kept insisting on putting the wall 5 less then where we wanted. We agreed to go with Matrix, *** told us we had 3 days to cancel but if we did he would lose his job. He also told us if we removed our current walls and ceiling before they started any work we would save 5k. *** came with prints weeks later. We told him where we wanted the wall, he said its an additional 15K! He said we needed more flooring, ceiling paint and lights. We contacted *** with concerns for over 2 weeks via phone, texts and e-mails and no response. Day 1 of work, the workers were happily surprised we had done the work of removing walls and ceiling; we realized it was something we did not need to do. Matrix didnt want to pay the workers for hours of heavy labor and they put it on us. Matrix said we needed drywall under the stairs to prevent fire from going upstairs. They put drywall but did not finish, there is a large gap making it non-fire resistant! They left patches over the drywall and did not paint over it nor finish the floor. Clean up was ok until the last couple of weeks. They left large buckets under the stairs and all sorts of garbage. They also left an open gallon of paint thinner with a hole on the side, it spilled all over, this was a hazard. We contacted *** (project manager) and no response. There are missing brackets to hold shelves in the cabinets they installed, and a pillar they installed is off center. For the final walk through, I sent *** text asking him to come after 4pm or on the weekend so both homeowners could be there, he ignored my request and came at noon, he was paid, never heard from him again. I left a message for ***(manager) and he did not respond. Communication was poor, most of the completed work is nice but I would not recommend Matix Home Solutions. Work took 6 months and was not completed to our satisfaction. Pictures available on Yelp.
