About John Tidwell and Sons

Welcome to John Tidwell and Sons! We’re a family-owned and operated business with a rich history in the construction industry, spanning nearly five decades. I’m John Tidwell, and my journey into construction began with my father-in-law after a brief stint at McDonald’s, where I quickly realized my true calling was in building and renovating homes.

For 15 years, I honed my skills working for three different companies before taking the leap to start my own business. Together with a partner, we founded TABCO Contracting. For almost 20 years, we specialized in commercial renovations, particularly in a design center in Atlanta, where we moved from one showroom to the next. This experience allowed me to work closely with designers and develop a keen eye for what makes sense in design and finishing spaces.

In 2017, my son Jonathan and I launched John Tidwell and Sons, bringing our combined expertise to home remodeling. While we have experience in remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, and general home repairs, we discovered a particular passion for finishing basements. Today, basement remodels are our primary focus, and we take pride in transforming these often-overlooked spaces into functional and beautiful areas of your home.

Let Us Remodel Your Basement!

Our business is built on a foundation of integrity, dedication, and a commitment to quality. We are licensed general contractors, and although we are licensed to work throughout the state, we have chosen to focus our efforts on areas north of Atlanta, along the I-85 corridor, to minimize travel time and better serve our local community.

At John Tidwell and Sons, we believe in the value of family. At various times, all four of my sons have worked with me, contributing to the legacy of our family business. Two of my sons, Sam and Garret, have even branched out to start their own company, “Good Morning Remodel,” offering a wide range of construction services.

Our approach to basement finishing is customer-centric. We understand the importance of upfront pricing and honest estimates. Our process begins with a detailed consultation, where we provide sketches and measurements to ensure accurate planning and budgeting. We handle every aspect of the remodel, from framing and electrical work to plumbing, drywall, and finishing touches like painting and flooring.

Whether you’re looking to create a game room for your kids, an in-law suite, or just need extra space, we have the experience and expertise to bring your vision to life. Our goal is to provide high-quality work using the best materials, ensuring that your new space will stand the test of time and add value to your home. We look forward to working with you and turning your basement into a space you’ll love when you contact us today!

Showed up on time. Very professional at their work and respectful of ours. They are intelligent and experienced. Full wall demo and rebuild on carpet and we did not even have to clean up where they were working.

John and his crew did a fantastic job at finishing our basement into a future in-law suite. They always started on-time each day, very communicative and helpful in walking us through how the project was progressing or any potential changes to the final bill, and always kept us involved with the design. Was also very impressed at how fast and efficient they are with what they do! These guys know what they're doing and would be happy to bring them back for another project any time.
