Basement Remodeling

Many homeowners consider remodeling projects that include basement remodeling but most often this area of the house is considered very low on the priority list for renovation and updating.

It is certainly true that a kitchen or bathroom remodel can add a lot of functionality and value to your home, but having a finished basement can add square footage and value to your home!

The biggest benefit of  basement remodeling is, of course, the extra usable space it creates in your home. Whether you plan to use it as a playroom, a family room, a bedroom, an office, or just a finished laundry and storage area, the added space can make a significant difference in the ease and convenience of your everyday life.

In addition to extra space, a basement that is properly finished eliminates the very common problem of damp and moldy basement areas.

An often-overlooked benefit is the added dollar value that basement remodeling brings to your home. Although practices vary from place to place, a properly finished basement can generally be included in the official square footage measurement of your house, almost always if the area is heated and cooled!  This of course adds to the value of your home.

Even if your basement does not fully qualify to be counted as part of the square footage, potential buyers will look at that area and recognize its value to the ease and convenience of their lifestyle. This can make all the difference when it comes to convincing potential buyers to follow through with an offer.

From everyday living to financial value, basement remodeling provides many benefits to you as a homeowner.
