Why You Should Remodel Your Basement
By the way, the terms "finish" & "remodel" are pretty much used interchangeably now-a-days. But technically, to "finish" a Basement is to take a space that has nothing but studs and maybe a little electrical and then add walls, HVAC, flooring etc...
If that's what you're looking for, you may have searched for finish basement contractors. You've found one!
To "remodel" a basement is to take one that is already finished and update the finishes or turn it in to a more useable or livable space.
If that's what you're dreaming of, your search may have been for basement remodeling contractors. Well, that's us too!
Now that that's out of the way, there are several reasons to finish OR remodel your basement such as...
* Adding value to your home. ~ Whether you plan on moving now or years into the future. Making basement upgrades will set you apart from many other homes and allow you to ask more for yours!
Many buyers insist on a finished basement and won't even consider a home without one!
* More liveable space. ~ As we mentioned above, there are countless ways to use more space. A media room, play room, craft or hobby room(s) or just a peaceful place away from the kids.
Or for them to have a place away from... You! How about a place to shoot pool or a custom built Bar? Or both! You get the idea!
* The most bang for your buck! ~ A finished or remodeled Basement will expand your useable space much more cost effectively than adding an addition. Period!
How much does it cost to Finish a Basement?
Like many other remodeling projects, we get asked this all the time and no, we do not just throw out numbers over the phone. Be careful of a basement contractors that do!
The accurate answer to the question depends on MANY factors, such as...
Is your basement already studded? Plumbed for a bathroom or kitchen or wet-bar? (If you want these things) Is their duct work? Is the HVAC complete or non-existent? How about the electrical? What stage is it in? Etc... etc...
As you can see, there's a lot of different things to consider in coming up with an accurate estimate and the only way to do so is to access your needs/dreams (Make a list) and then discuss them with a qualified basement remodeling contractor.
That being said, basement remodel or finish projects are probably the most under estimated projects, cost wise, by homeowners.
If your Basement is currently a blank slate. No Plumbing, HVAC, Electrical etc... Here's a little tip for you...
After you've determined the square footage of your basement, take out a calculator. Enter the square footage. Then multiply that by 55.
So, a 1000 sq/ft blank slate Basement will START around $55.00 per sq/ft to finish or around $55,000. Now obviously, depending on the Finishes you want, that number can go higher.
On the other hand, if you already have some walls framed out or some of the mechanicals installed, (HVAC etc...) this number would start out less. Maybe a lot less.
Please be careful though! You bet you can find basement contractors who will say ~ "We can do that for $40.00 (or whatever) a sq/ft."
Believe it or not, there are actually contractors who will purposely under-bid a job just to get it. Then hit you up for more money before the job is complete.
If your budget is already spent, that guy is gone ~ leaving you with a mess! Find a licensed, insured basement finish contractor with an excellent reputation who will shoot straight with you right from the start.
Never put the safety of your family, your home or your money in the hands of a smooth talking low-baller! Not to mention many of these guys are simply inexperienced at accurately bidding a job and...
An inexperienced contractor can really hurt the value of your home or even jeopardize you being able to sell it in the future? Code violations rarely go hidden forever! You're looking for a licensed, fully insured basement contractor!
OK, now that you have at least an idea of what it's going to cost to finish your Basement and the danger of hiring the "wrong" guy, you may be ready to take the next step...
Get in touch with us and let's have an intelligent conversation about your needs and then we'll set a convenient time to come see you and work up an accurate estimate for you.
If you're not quite ready, please allow us to drive an important point home for when you are. Whether it's us or someone else...
