The basement is the perfect focus area for homeowners who need to add square footage to their existing home. The quest for additional square footage often leads to the addition of new rooms or a second-story addition when the structure of the basement is already in place. Basement finishing or remodeling uses existing space to improve your living space and build a better quality of life within your home.
Basement Remodeling Done Right
The basement is generally either unfinished or finished. An unfinished basement should be completely sealed so it remains dry enough to be used as storage for holiday decorations or sports gear. This doesn’t necessarily mean the unfinished basement will have very many electrical outlets or even ductwork for heating or cooling. Here are some of the differences between basement finishing and basement remodeling:
- Basement Finishing – Finishing the basement involves sealing the flooring and walls to keep moisture at bay. We may also install a flooring material such as tile or carpeting and erect walls to hide the unsightly block walls. We will install power outlets and ductwork as needed to create a climate controlled finished basement.
- Basement Remodeling – The idea of a basement remodel is essentially based on the fact that the basement is already finished. We will erect walls to separate the different living areas that the new basement layout will accommodate and install even more power outlets and light fixtures to meet your family’s needs. We will work with you to create the ideal living spaces to increase the functionality of your home.
