Established in 2009, The Basic Companies has provided thousands of homeowners throughout New Jersey, as well as Bucks and Montgomery counties in Pennsylvania, with expert home remodeling and renovation services.

Stuart Perlman and Dominick Natoli, owners/principals of The Basic Companies, founded the business on the premise of providing homeowners with a cost-effective option for home renovations without sacrificing quality and service.

Leading up to the launch of the company, they had more than 30 years of experience in home renovation services, and applied their knowledge and expertise to delivering an exceptional product and experience.

The initial launch of the company included divisions Totally Basements and The Basic Basement Co. for basement finishing egress window and door installations. Finishing packages included a no-frills option for a base price of $9,999 to custom finishing, including bars, wine cellars, game rooms, and home theaters.

The launch of these divisions were soon followed by The Basic Bathroom Co., The Basic Kitchen Co., and The Basic Waterproofing Co.
