5 Reasons to Finish Your Basement

Are you considering a basement remodel, but are undecided as to whether or not it’s the right decision for your home? Our general contractor team specializes in basement remodels, and we are happy to guide you. Here are 5 reasons to finish your basement.

Extra Space – A basement remodel is an excellent solution for acquiring additional space which you can then use for a variety of purposes. The extra space could be used for recreation, to host visitors from out of town and for entertainment.

Value – Finishing a basement offers the best price per square foot of any remodeling project. If you are looking to sell your home either in the near future or even down the road, a basement remodel is the best way to increase your home’s value. A general contractor can help you design the best basement remodel to fit your needs.

Versatility – A finished basement can serve many purposes. Unlike your main level, where often you only have a limited floor plan, a basement remodel allows you to realize the space you want and need during the construction phase.

Income – Basement apartments are a great way to add extra income and resale value to your home. On average, basements apartments rent at 75% of the cost of your monthly mortgage. This extra income can quickly offset the costs you accumulated during your basement remodel.

Multi-Family Living – It is becoming increasingly common for homes to include multi-generational living. A basement remodel can help you and your family create the space you need to enjoy living close to each other, while respecting each other’s privacy.
