About Basement Builders

“Basement Builders is owned and operated by the McGinty family of Coopersburg, PA.  My family has been involved in Lehigh Valley Construction for over thirty years. Because of our family roots, quality craftsmanship has always been our priority.  In 2004, we decided to specialize in basement construction to showcase our creativity and the skills of our talented craftsmen. This led to the formation of Basement Builders and our team philosophy -- We are committed to designing and building, in a professional and cost effective manner, a safe, creative, finished basement that reflects the character and style of your home.”
