Augment Your Home’s Potential With a Basement Remodeling Project

An unfinished basement is an area full of untapped potential. What currently is an uninviting area of cold concrete housing off-season storage and a haven for spiders can be transformed into an inviting area in which your family and friends will want to spend time. Basement remodeling usually costs less than putting an addition onto your home and results in less disruption to your everyday life, so what are you waiting for?

Basement Remodeling Within Your Budget

How much does basement remodeling cost? The final price of the project depends on how much you want to spend. It also depends on what you want to include. Issues that Rosseland Remodeling may see, such as excessive moisture, when we initially inspect the area to be finished can also be a factor. Cost depends on total square footage, inclusion of elements such as a bathroom or a fancy wet bar, flooring type and whether you have any egress windows. High-end amenities as well as dividing your basement into several rooms will drive up the cost.

Maintaining customer satisfaction is one of our top priorities. That’s why Rosseland Remodeling will never present you with a lowball quote just to get your business, hike the final price and give you excuses about the additional costs. Our proposal will include all materials, labor and supplies in the original estimate you receive. We will even include possible costs if we think it is likely that our sub-contractors may encounter a problem with a portion of your project. Rest assured that the quote you get is the price you’ll pay.

Basement Renovation Starts With a Good Plan

A great basement renovation isn’t only about setting a budget. It’s also about developing a good plan. Discussing how you want to use the space with family members is a good starting point. Determining your needs and wants and then discussing them with our design team will help pin down the possibilities. Once your budget is set, we will work closely with you to bring your ideas to life.

Evaluating the space is a key part of the equation. Basements that have problems with mold or humidity may require professional waterproofing before remodeling can begin in order to increase comfort in the finished area. Adding a vapor barrier to the wall framing is a building code and also a good idea.

Basement remodeling projects encompass a wide variety of tastes and needs. Many customers simply want a family room or an additional relaxation space where teens can watch television, listen to music or socialize with friends. Other typical projects include construction of

• Home theater or media room
• Party room complete with a bar and/or wine cellar
• Home office
• Additional bedroom
• Full or half bathroom
• Game room or kids’ playroom
• Craft room

Although remodeling your basement won’t produce the same return on investment (ROI) as kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling, it will increase the value of your home. The extra living space it produces is attractive to many buyers and may help your home sell more quickly when you decide to sell. Homeowners are likely to see the best ROI with a design that is attractive and functional instead of one that is highly personalized. Most buyers look for finished walls, ceiling and floors along with proper wiring to accommodate televisions and computers.

Understanding the Scope of the Project

Constructing a new and updated space in your basement isn’t just about producing a functional design. It also encompasses a lot of preparation and hidden work that goes behind the walls. Important considerations involve knowing building codes in your municipality to ensure that the proper permits are pulled and that the project is constructed according to safety specifications. This is especially important when planning plumbing and electrical work, which will require inspections by municipal officials. At Rosseland Remodeling, we make sure that we pull all of the proper permits and construct according to local and state building codes.

Even factors that aren’t necessarily affected by building codes can affect the quality of your project and your ultimate satisfaction. Items such as using the proper fasteners and anchors to secure inner walls to the masonry or cement of your foundation and insulation with a higher R-value to keep heat in and cold out can make the difference between a just okay renovation and one that you will really enjoy.

It’s also important to remember that plumbing and electrical is often located near your basement’s ceiling and should be easily accessible when the project is completed. The same goes for your home’s HVAC system, which should continue to have proper venting and access for maintenance.
