About CMH Builders

At CMH Builders, we consider ourselves to be a personal, one-stop shop for full basement finishing in the Indianapolis area and surrounding counties. Since its founding in 2006, CMH Builders has finished over 600 basements and is currently finishing 90-100 basements per year. This means when you chose CMH Builders, you are choosing experience – and that matters.

Finishing your basement is an exciting process, but it can also be a stressful time for some of our clients. That is why CMH Builders provides a full team of experts that walk you through the basement finishing process each step of the way. We will talk through all your options during the construction planning phase, then you’ll work directly with our in-house design team to make your selections, and then your project manager will work closely with your during the project. We’ve found this removes a lot of the stress from the building process.

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 full basement finishing. 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 full basement finisher in town.
