Bringing your home back to from disaster!
We help get your life and home back. With our team we will make sure a complete itemized list and bid of all your homes damage is complete unlike what the “preferred venders” that your insurance company recommended will do. We walk thru the list with you and your adjuster( we are not a public adjuster …read more here) to make sure everyone is comfortable with the repairs and the plan to get you your home back!
- We work for you and you are the only one we need to make happy
- We don’t rely on insurance companies to keep us in business, we find our own work thru word of mouth and advertising
- You receive an itemized project list so you know what is being repaired and/or replaced
- We create a good working relationship with your agent and adjuster

- An A+ BBB member
Started in April 2006, we have been servicing the Twin Cities area with a mission to be more then “just a Contractor”. And with hundreds of projects completed and an A+ BB Ranking we will continue this mission!
A couple of our many testimonials over the 10+ years in Business
“Thank you very much for the basket, it is beautiful. I appreciate your help in getting my home put back together. I wish you the best with your business endeavors and I truly appreciate the fact that you were willing to work with me and Trent as we learned the ropes of home repair”. Tina -Rogers, MN
“Thank you for putting our house back together. It looks better than before the pipe broke. We can not thank you enough.” Kathy- Maple Grove, MN
“Your crews worked so hard and fast on getting our house back together after the fire. You made sure we knew what to expect along the way.” J.J. St. Louis Park, MN
Since most restoration companies get their business from the same companies that also approve the damage, there is a conflict of interest in the repairs and the bids to perform the work. These companies still need to make money, so they use less then ideal crews to help keep their margins that every business needs. We use the same crews on our home remodels as we do on your fire damage, water damage or storm damage repairs to your home. We make sure our estimates include all the items in Xactimate Software that were damaged in the insurance loss but also adjust the numbers when they don’t meet the quality that you deserve. Your home is supposed to be put back in pre-loss condition. This never means box cabinets when you had custom ones.
Attics to Basements Building and Renovations is operated by David Vinje CR, CAPS. There are many services that are offered by Attics to Basements because of their extensive experience in remodeling, residential design, and construction management. When founding the company, owner David Vinje knew that the Minneapolis & St Paul area needed a company that offered professional remodeling, construction, and damage restoration services.
Since 2006, the company has also done such projects as additions, kitchens and bathrooms, complete home builds, and home remodels.
We are insured, licensed, and we hold a number of certificates. Those certificates include being a NARI Certified Remodeler, EPA Certified Renovator, Certified Aging in Place (NHAB), and Minnesota State Certified Home Energy Auditors.
You can read more at our website dedicated to fire, water, and storm damage here. We are working on getting this site updated this coming year.
We meet with you, get a sense of your style, the homes current style and the features that are required and the features that are optional.
See your project, and approve the design before construction starts.
We use Chief Architect design software to generate high quality 3d views of your remodel. This gives you that ability to see and approve the design and options. Whereas without this design option you are putting a lot of trust that you and your contractor have the same mental vision of your project.

Why does experience matter?
As the years pass, home building laws and codes change. The more experience you have the more unique challenges you come across.
Unfortunately the first time you come across these challenges, they will add to the cost of the remodel as they were not anticipated and a change order for the miscalculation will be required. As a contractor gains experience they will see these ahead of time an include them in the cost of the remodel, allowing for an accurate budget for for the project without a surprise change order and unrealistic estimates.
