About CMH Builders

At CMH Builders Inc., we consider ourselves to be a personal, one stop shop basement remodeling and finishing company that serves the Indianapolis area and surrounding counties. With the vast majority of our work being completed by CMH Builders in-house employees themselves, this allows the homeowner to become very familiar with who is working in their home day in and day out without having a parade of different subcontractors showing up to the house every day. This separates us from much of the competition, as we take pride in being a smaller, more personal company. As our client, you will always have direct contact with your project manager, and you can be assured that each of our employees will take care of your needs in the same personal and professional manner as our owner.

CMH Builders is different. We’re different in the way that we approach remodeling, renovation, and basement finishing projects. We’re different in the way that we plan and present the project, and different in the way that we quote the project. Our unique “Total Project Estimate” ensures that we have proposed the plan for your project that won’t leave you with questions and surprises at the end. We encourage you to compare our process, presentation, and quote against any residential basement remodeler and finisher in town.
