Reviews, Testimonials, Comments, and Ratings for BCC Home Improvements & Basement Construction Company
K.H. - Nov 2017
Thanks for making our basement project go so well. I think the detailed designed made all the difference to Sue. Change usually throws her into a loop. Thanks again Guy.
JB. - September 18, 2017
Sorry to see your review problem, as for us we are thrilled. We looked all over to find a reasonable way to plan our basement. Your design costs were the best, by far. Originally we expected that-you get what you pay for, thing. Wrong. With the 3’d’s we could really grasp what we could expect. It may take awhile but, with these plans, we’ll get there. Thanks again
Attention…Important Update! Basement Construction Company/BCC Home Improvements.
Rick Kyle , CEO - August 22, 2017
We have recently changed hosting companies after more than 10 years. Change is never smooth and we therefore expected a few hicups but losing a Whole Year of Client Reviews wasn’t one of them! Over the years we receive on average 6-8 pages of client reviews each year as we have consistently started one new project each week. Though, not all take the time to write a review, many do, unsolicited! My apologies to everyone who has contacted me regarding this BIG problem. While we are working to retreive (if possible) those mislocated reviews, we are pleased to announce that many recent clients have agreed to accept calls from current prospects once we have moved together to that decision making place for proceeding with BCC on their home project.
JT. - Marietta, GA - August 2, 2016
During the course of my daily work I have met several people in the construction trades. As such, when we decided to build out our basement I was looking for precisely what BCC calls “the roadmap”. The design process was throuough and instructive as Rick shared with me his reasons why the design would be less expensive to construct using elements already in place as opposed to my original concept relayed to him at the beginning. Once settled on the layout I askied and received his numbers on several of the construction areas. Thank you BCC for your work and once we get started I will be in contact for your help on several aspects.
Rob H. - Atlanta, GA - July 19, 2016
For the price you simply can not get anything comparable to the Fee based design offered by The Basement Construction Co. Because I wanted to do most of the construction myself I hired Rick to hepl me with the design. After only a couple of reworks we had it. My blueprint to work from and 3d’s to illustrate the details to make the space shine. Thanks again BCC keep up the good work.
A.J. Green - Georgia - March 14, 2016
I live about 5 miles from Ansley Park. When I told Rick I wanted my bathroom remodeled with an Ansley Park look and feel, he knew exactly what I meant. He came to my home and reviewed his plans with me. Then he and his team took charge and got the job done in nothing flat. I really thought it would take much more time than it took. I guess Rick has been doing this for such a long time that it's all just second nature to him. But, this is my first home, inherited from my grandparents, and I wanted it to be perfect. Rick helped me make it exactly what I wanted.
Edna & Edward F. - Georgia - January 25, 2016
We are relatively new to the Dunwoody area. Although we have been here about 8 years, this is still relatively new. So when we decided to upgrade our kitchen we wanted to make sure we got the very best, someone with a reputation for excellence in Dunwoody. When we found Rick we knew right away he was the one for us. He helped us select cabinets that would not only last but are so beautiful they should be in a picture magazine. The only thing left to do now is to renew the kitchen flooring. Of course we will get Rick to do that for us. He's just the best.
M. Wehr - Atlanta, GA - July 15, 2015
When we meet with Rick about our basement, my wife and I both commented privately that we like this "guy". Besides his apparent wealth of construction knowledge he has "people skills" in that he knew how to communicate and listen. Once we received his design we were blown away. He heard us and delivered. Should we need any professional help in building out our basement we will call Basement Construction company and Rick, he delivers.
Mrs. R. L. Landers - Atlanta, GA - April 22, 2015
Not sure i can add much to what has been said already. I remember reading through some of the comments here before calling Rick to come out. I didn't really put much faith in them. I thought surely they were kidding. But, ya know I just had to find out for myself. And I found out the coments here were true. My husband and I found Rick to be honest and trustworthy. He took one look at our horrible back yard and said, "OK we really need to fix this up". Now, we have an awesome deck with custom lights and awesome seating areas. The only problem now is getting the kids and grandkids to leave our deck and go home when it is time to leave. But, that's something we don't mind dealing with. Thanks Rick. I guess I did have something to say after all.
Matt Wyman - Marietta, GA - December 17, 2014
Rick - thanks for all your help! Below is a review for your service that you can feel free to use. Look forward to getting the additional material/cost detail we discussed as well!
To whom it may concern:
Mr. Kyle is very professional, highly knowledgeable, fair, and honest - and my family cannot recommend him more based on the valuable "self-service" consulting and design services he provided for my family.
I worked with Mr. Kyle in November 2014 to help my family and I envision turning our unfinished basement into a full in-law suite so we could move our elderly parents in with us. After calling and speaking with several large and impersonal basement finishing companies, I ran across Mr. Kyle's company and am extremely happy that I did. Our budget was limited and we felt in over our heads dealing with large full-service firms we spoke with.
Despite being a very busy man, Mr. Kyle was always very responsive and helpful with our phone calls and emails. He understood our situation and took time to explain some basic concepts to me regarding the options for executing our basement plans.
His service is quite unique I believe, and allowed us a no-pressure method to get detailed construction plans that for us was invaluable as we face down an intimidating task in front of us. Mr. Kyle came out to our home and discussed our needs in detail. He made a lot of measurements, and provided us with money-saving options we had not thought of previously. After some back and forth by phone with Q&A from both sides, he delivered several drafts of plans along with 3D drawings to help us envision our new basement living space.
I know Mr. Kyle's company provides a wide range of services, but for us the "self-service" model was ideal and provided us very tangible value - a set of plans incorporating all of our constraints and needs ready to be filed for permits. Do to our great experience with Mr. Kyle, we also asked him to provide us an estimate for his company to act as GC which included a lot of detail (14 pages). This document has given me a lot of confidence to seek out additional bids and execute the project on our own timeline and budget. (For us with our limited budget we will be doing this in several phases.)
Great job Mr. Kyle and thanks for all of your help!
Alice Mackenzie - Georgia - September 22, 2014
You asked me to send you a comment if I was happy with your company and work or even if I was not happy with you. So, I am making my comment now. No, I am not happy with your service... I am overjoyed. Let me tell you why. Before I contacted you I had called about 10 other companies asking for building designs and I wanted them to work with me. Most of them refused to work with me on designs unless I was going to use their company for the build. But, when I explained my unique situation to you, you didn't have a problem supplying me with designs at all. I was sure the designs would end up being sub standard. But, I was dead wrong. My brother-in-law (who did the building for us) said the designs were top quality and made his job very easy. I am sending you some pictures of the finished basement. That brew is my family there (I can't seem to get them out of the basement after the remodel) and if you look in the background, the tall redhead is the Carla I told you about. Anyway, I just wanted to send you a thank you for doing such a great job.
R. Allen Jr. - July 7, 2014
Rick, this is fantastic! I thought I would have to pay an arm and a leg for building plans and I thought it would take forever to get exactly what I wanted. But, you seem to have a sixth sense about these things and I didn't have to pay through the nose to get awesome plans. I will recommend you and use your services again.
John H. - Atlanta GA - March 16, 2014
After spending years in doing things to my basement on the way to finishing it, I decided to call on Rick Kyle at BCC. I saw that his company had a By Owner – Basement finishing pricing option. It was a something that I should have done earlier. He designed a layout for the basement that opened the floor space while providing additional wall surfaces. Since I had already done a considerable amount of framing in the basement, he advised me of what I needed to do to insure that the work was up to code. In fact, I received positive comments from the county inspector on the framing rough in based on the advice that Rick provided.
Working together with his trades people, I now have a beautiful basement. My wife is ready to furnish it. Antonio, the electrician, and Gabriel, the plumber, showed up as scheduled and completed their jobs quickly. The drywall installers and finishers completed their work in a couple of days. The debris from the drywall install finishing was removed the next day. Any items that needed to be corrected were promptly resolved. Suppliers delivered material on schedule. I would recommend BCC for basement remodeling.
Ruby Edwards - January 26, 2014
Rick, when you told me my kitchen would become the main focal point of the house after you remodeled it, I thought for sure you were just saying that as a part of your sales pitch. But, I have to tell you that you were right! The kitchen is so beautiful with the granite counter tops and the new soft close cabinet doors and drawers that everyone automatically drifts to it even when there is nothing going on. I keep some fresh green apples in a bowel on the counter top now. The bright color of the apples help to really show off the dark wood cabinets and they give my family something healthy to munch on when they are standing around in the kitchen for what seems like no reason at all. Thank you again for such a great job. I WOULD NOT use anyone else.
Dave - Marietta GA December 5, 2013
When my wife and I decided to plan our basement remodel we felt it was important to have plans drawn up to ensure we did not miss anything. After a thorough search for basement designers in the Atlanta area and discussing our project with several companies it was very clear to me that Rick Kyle was our man. His service offerings are extremely flexible whether you want to DIY or require full service, with everything in between. This was exactly what we were looking for. It has been a pleasure working with Rick throughout the design process. I have found him to be extremely responsive, knowledgeable, open and honest. We are extremely happy with our final design and looking forward to the next phase of the project. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends and family looking to renovate their basement.
Peter - Jun 21, 2013
I couldn't be happier with the work done for me by Rick (BBC Home Improvements). Since I planned a DIY basement project, Rick drew up and refined the design plans so that it perfectly fit my expectations. Rick was very responsive to all my questions and made several good suggestions on how best to proceed with the basement renovation. After a very thorough consultation with me, Rick presented me with a great design as well as detailed breakdown of all the costs involved. Rick was highly professional and very transparent throughout the entire process and I would not hesitate to recommend Rick and BBC Home Improvements to anyone. Cheers and thank you Rick!
Vincent - March 12, 2013
Rick did a great job with th design plan of my basement. I told him what I wanted and he incorporated his own ideas and came up with an amazing design. The construction has not started but I know that when completed I will have the basement of my dreams. I recommend Rick highly.
Austin Drake - Atlanta, Georgia February 27, 2013
I made this comment once before, but it seems to have been deleted. My family and I were planning for a big New Years celebration this year and we needed to have our kitchen remodeling job finished before the event. Rick and his team came in and totally blew us away. Not only did Rick do an excellent job, but he also designed the entire kitchen around one item I showed him. He is like a kitchen whisperer when it comes to design. Everything is so easy to reach and so beautifully done. Now it is the main gathering place in our home and the New Years party was a huge success. I am so happy you told me about the corners of the center island because you were so right... everyone gathered around there and just hung out. Thanks a million!
Scott Anderson - January 20, 2013
BCC started my basement on Nov 11. About half way through the project I told Rick i had family coming for Christmas and needed it finished by then. By Dec 18 they were putting in the carpet and we were ready for final inspection shortly thereafter. About 7 weeks start to finish which was amazing! All of the crew members are extremely courteous and easy to work with. We are well satisfied with the diligence and work done by BCC. Thanks again Rick for your attention to detail and thoroughness on our basement. My family loves it!
Aaron - December 11, 2012
I had never done a project near the magnitude of a basement finishing. A neighbor received an estimate from General Contractors's recommended Rick Kyle based on the vision he had for his basement. In my neighbor's words, "no one else even came close" to what Rick laid out in his basement drawings. I decided to go with Rick because his honesty and intercity were evident.
I was thoroughly impressed throughout the project. His creativity and attention to details consistently exceeded my expectations. It was clear that managing the project was a small part of Rick's value. i have to admit that I made a couple of significant changes in the middle of the project. Rick adapted to my request and was patient with my inexperience in the process.
But, when it comes down to satisfaction, it's all about the finished project. I have shown my basement to several people and often hear a "wow" some time during the tour. Two of my neighbors have decided to reach out to Rick after seeing his work. Based on my experience, I have no hesitation in recommending Rick Kyle.
Janice & Brian - Atlanta September 26, 2012
Rick, you did it! You delivered on your promise to make my kitchen the gem of our home. When Brian and I told you we wanted to have the remodeling of our kitchen finished for your 11th Anniversary party, you promised to make the deadline and to make it truly wonderful. The center island you suggested was perfect. During the party every9one seemed to just gather around it and even though there was good food located on nearby tables. Everyone LOVED the doors you suggested for the pantry. The only down side was they kept touching them like a caress. I thought they were going to rub all the shine off the wood.:-) Rick, you really came through for us and I just wanted to come online to say, Thank You!
Suzie and Lane – April 23, 2012
Our home is almost 100 years old. Over the years, it has been passed down from my grand parents to my parents and now to my husband and me. There has been a lot of work done on the home over many of those years. But, never in all the years I have witnessed upgrades, patches, and changes (almost a half century) have I seen any company as conscious and meticulous as BCC Home Improvements and Rick Kyle.
When Rick first came to our home to measure and give us a free quote on remodeling our master bath, I knew from the start he was the guy for us. He treated our home as if it were his very own. Then, like magic Rick replaced our old bath tub, sink, windows and floor and painted and trimmed the walls with a fresh new look that adds to the character of the entire home. Our new bay windows brings light to our bath area and flows right into the bedroom just as Rick promised. Now, instead of being a dark corner of the house, our bathroom always gets an audible wow, whenever we give any new guest a tour of our place.
I wish I had known about Rick years ago. He could have saved us a lot of headache and money. I will use BCC Home Improvements from now. I have already given Rick’s business card to many of the people I know. Rick, if you read this; please send me another stack of your business cards. I am fresh out. :-)
Regina & Brandon – March 14, 2012
My husband and I would rate Rick and BCC Home Improvements a perfect 10 and then some! From the first time I called to the time Rick and his team swept clean the floor of the new kitchen he had just finished remodeling for us, the whole experience was like a dream. Rick walked us through from start to finish and always with a smile. We never had to worry about anything... and I mean ANYTHING. Now, our kitchen is the focal point of our home and it makes a GREAT gathering place for our children and grandchildren. Rick is the only remodeler we will ever use!
Franklyn – February 05, 2012
From the first consultation to the completed design it was a pleasure working with Rick Kyle. I knew what I wanted but his attention to detail made my basement surpasses any vision I had. I will definitely recommend him to friends, neighbors and family.
Robin & Tony – January 19, 2012
Rick and his team finished our kitchen on time and under budget. They helped us come up with a design that we really, really love. Everything ran really smoothly and the workmanship is great. They were professional from start to finish! Our kitchen is now the focal point of our home. We LOVE showing it off. Great job guys, we will recommend you to our friends.
Dr. Lampty-Mills – atlanta January 17, 2012
1650sf of wonder! Rick and his crew really delivered-stacked stone fireplace, refreshment bar and wine wall. Custom designed exercise room, 80" retractable theater screen, play area including stone dart board wall and ping pong table space. custom accent lighting throughout.
No easy task considering space confinements! well done and new flagstone patio and hot tub area next on our new years wish list. FYI-I started with his fee paid custom design plan then decided BCC was the best to build it. Glad I did! You will too.
P. J. O'neill – Atlanta December 20, 2011
BCC does great work!!!
Before starting our basement I talked to and got quotes from 5 different basement contractors. Rick Kyle made us feel very comfortable from the start, created a detailed plan based on what we were looking to do and was very competitively priced.
They did a great job on our basement, on time, on budget and great to work with. I would highly recommend Rick and BCC.
C. Sigman – Georgia December 18, 2011
We selected BCC because Rick Kyle listened to our ideas and expanded them with his design knowledge. The end result is a beautiful basement with lots of unique touches and character. We were able to stay within our budget and original quote. I would highly recommend BCC to my friends and family.
C. O. Jones December 10, 2011
Better Than We Could Have Imagined!
We were very nervous about choosing a contractor to complete our basement. What a blessing it was that we chose the Basement Construction Company! Our first meeting with Rick put us at ease and he delivered on everything he promised--exceptional customer service, within budget, fast turnaround and a beautifully finished basement. It's a masterpiece and the talk of our family, friends and community!
Steve – Dacula, GA November 07, 2011
Great Job, Highly Recommend BCC
We are very pleased with the quality of work performed by BCC. Rick finished our basement and it was a very good experience and handled in a professional and organized manner. From the start, "the process" exceeded expectations and is far beyond what I've heard others experience. At a minimum have Rick provide the planning activities and blueprints for the project. Great work!
Kevin S. November 04, 2011
Meticulous, Creative and Trustworthy
Rick was referred to us by a trusted friend to do our basement remodel. He did a fantastic job, as if he was working on his own basement. We wanted to find somebody we trusted to do excellent work - Rick was definitely the guy. We would recommend him highly.
Eric and Soojin November 03, 2011
Creative Design and Great Work
We discussed our basement renovation with several different contractors over several years. Rick devised a very creative design, really much better than anyone else, including high-end design-build companies. And Rick's price was very reasonable. The end result is a beautiful basement that far exceeded our initial expectations. Rick has a great eye for design details and was a pleasure to work with. We'd highly recommend you meet with him to discuss your basement renovation.
Scott November 01, 2011
Just what I wanted
Let me start by saying The Basement Construction Company is GREAT! I was living in Florida and moving to GA. When i met with Rick we went through just what I wanted , He has great ideas. Gave him the keys to my home and let him do the rest. I was extremelly happy and the work was done in 7 weeks ready for me to move into my new home office in the basement. I recomend him to anyone.
Paul and Denise August 01, 2011
Last year we discovered BCC and they did an A+ job on our basement build-out and under deck ceiling cover. This year we had Rick and his crew back to remodel the master bath and they once again impressed with elegance and style. We will be calling them back for the kitchen next
Chad June 22, 2011
Back for more!
Rick/BCC came back to a build us a beautiful outdoor space to compliment our basement they finished for us last year. They laid flagstone for the floor and installed an under decking system creating a comfortable dry area. We recommend everyone not forgot the outdoor space when finishing their basement- Rick-sorry about my delay in writing this

Better Than Advertised
BCC Builders advertises themselves as a complete remodeling company - well, they are. While painting our 14 year old deck, they redirected two (2) gutter downspouts that were causing water retention in two areas of our backyard. We have several other projects we expect to tackle sometime in the future. When we do, we'll definitely call Rick Kyle of BCC Builders Services They were great
Bobby M. February 24, 2011
Rick does an outstanding job of understanding what the customer wants, and then does a great job of providing wonderful suggestions to improve on ideas. Work is performed with high level of quality and professionalism. I would use his company for any future work needs.
malcolm10 December 28, 2010
The BCC did a fabulous job on my basement remodel in the VA-Highlands area. Their attention to detail is excellent, and the crew was punctual, reliable and hard working. The final result was better than I had hoped for.
In addition, Rick Kyle's methodology provides a real value. Rick spent several hours in my basement during my initial consultation, and he provided me with a sophisticated design with a line by line estimate of labor and materials before I even retained BCC. Other contractors that I spoke with wanted between $1000 and $2000 for a basement design before they would even bid on the project. I am very pleased with my decision to go with BCC.
George & Tamah Curry October 19, 2010
Our basement design or layout was nothing short of amazing. We told Rick what we wanted and he came back with a layout that exceeded our expectations. In fact, we believe we have the best basement layout in our neighborhood. Oh yes, make sure you get the 3Ds. We highly, highly, recommend BCC. Thanks Rick.
Paul and Denise October 15, 2010
Quality at a reasonable price
BCC impressed from day one when Rick presented unique ideas with his quote. He kept fully involved during the project and the end result was much more than expected. His craftsmen provided excellent work and kept a clean work area. I would recommend BCC to anyone.
Cedric Thomas – ellenwood, georgia October 14, 2010
just wanted to know how much would it be to do a basement between 1000/1500 sq. ft. and approximately how long would it take to finish it.
Matt Compston – Georgia October 11, 2010
Thanks for all your insight and attention. You really made me feel better in a bad situation. Thanks again Rick, your service just keeps coming through and through, you're a very good man.
The Compston Family – Georgia October 08, 2010
We can't say enough about the BCC. Rick brought in great designer ideas and transformed our drab basement into a retreat. He was on time and when there was a problem with the painters, he promptly resolved it. We've received nothing but rave reviews from everyone that's seen our basement.
James S. – Atlanta, Georgia October 07, 2010
"What a Difference!"
The Basement Construction Company came up with a very livable, innovative design plan to convert our roughed out basement into a full basement living area. Rick worked closely with us to manage within our budget while showing flexibility, creativity, good advice and project expertise. We love the final results and will enjoy it for many years to come.
Venkatesh – Georgia October 04, 2010
Top Builder in Georgia!
Rick (owner of BCC) is a very passionate builder, with great vision and ideas. Rick's honesty and ability to work within our budget impressed us very much. Rick took care of everything for us, and the end result was superb! The quality of finishing is excellent that I have not seen with many builders. Rick's crew members are also very professional. If you are not rich enough but want to build a rich-looking basement, and then definitely hire this company!
C.B. Bell – Atlanta, Georgia October 02, 2010
What a Beautiful Basement! Highly Recommended!
The BCC and Rick Kyle were a pleasure to work with! Our basement is more beautiful than we could have ever expected. Rick's professionalism, sense of design, and customer service were amazing. Also, the project was done on time and within budget! We would HIGHLY recommend the BCC to anyone looking to transform their basement in a high-quality, professional, budget-conscious manner.
Bennie and Patricia Harris – Atlanta, Georgia September 28, 2010
A RARE FIND
Having gotten information about the Basement Construction Company from an advertisement, we were both skeptical and cautious. After the first meeting with Rick, we knew we had made the "right decision."
We LOVE our basement. Rick did a fantastic job. He was meticulous as well as creative. However, more than his extra ordinary craftsmanship, his honesty, dependability and personal attributes were exceptional.
Rick was willing to work within our budget, assisting us in getting an attractive and functional basement at a price that we could afford. He was quite sensitive to our needs. At the time, we had just moved to Atlanta from New Orleans (a result of Katrina), it was important to us that at least we had one less worry.
An excellent experience!!!.
Jose Luisrod – Georgia September 23, 2010
Every construction project is a potential nightmare. we were lucky to use this company. The owner and his team were professional, efficient, and really took pride in their work. The end result was a great looking basement that we enjoy day in and day out! We wholeheartedly recommend this business.
SuwaneeMan September 22, 2010
Passion & Excellence!
Our basement was completed by BCC about 2 months ago. We were extremely impressed with Rick's passion and ideas about finishing our basement - which had an unusual layout to work with from the start. Rick followed that up with excellent craftsmanship, and continued to bring his initial passion throughout the building process by paying close attention to the details all the way to the end! We are extremely pleased with the finished basement, and it came out better than we could have ever imagined. Better yet, our neighbors and friends are amazed at the transformation. They too are impressed with the excellent craftsmanship and little "extras" BCC added as well. All done at a very reasonable price. Thanks Rick and BCC!
Guy H. – Atlanta, Georgia September 22, 2010
The BCC Home Improvements team preformed as advertised. We had previously added on to our rear yard patio and wanted to screen in a portion of this new patio area. 24 hours later-things were all cleaned up, they were gone and we had a beautiful new screened in patio area. Rick Kyle and his crew are professionals. Neat, quick, clean and complete. Thanks again Rick!

My husband fancies himself somewhat of a "do-it-yourselfer"; however, when we decided to finish our basement, I felt we needed to hire a professional! Fortunately, we found the Basement Construction Company and their basement design service. Rick really delivered as his design in spectacular!! Now, I hope my husband can make it come true. Thankfully, Rick and his crew are available to step in and help if needed. This may not be the last time we turn to Rick Kyle and BCC!
BCC Builder Services- replaced our 20 year old gutters. They showed up on schedule and performed as hoped. New gutters and downspouts may not sound like a big deal-but our past experiences with contractors were never this! Good job Rick and keep up the good work.
