Homeowners stand to gain lots of benefits from basement remodeling. For example:

  • The best bang for your buck. Adding a room of any size requires building a structure of foundation, walls and roof. But the basic structure of a basement is already in place. That’s why basement remodeling offers the best value per square foot in comparison with all other space-increasing projects.
  • Maximizes your space. Adding another room of any kind to your house will certainly give you a bit more elbowroom. But not much more than a bit. Remodeling your basement, though, will add lots of livable space to your home because basements typically are very large areas. On average, a basement remodel will increase your living space by about a third and some basement remodeling projects nearly double a home’s livable space.
  • Resale value. A remodeling project shouldn’t be initiated simply to increase the resale value of a house because no remodeling project will return 100% of the money invested at the time of resale. But, no other project designed to increase living space even comes close to holding value as well as basement remodeling projects. Your remodeled basement will also make your house more attractive to prospective buyers.
  • You have a blank slate. For your basement remodel you can let your imagination run wild. You can give your creative juices free rein. Your basement is an island unto itself so your decorating and design choices can be made with complete freedom, without paying homage to the rest of your home.
  • Gain a comfortable hangout. A basement can be the most easily heated, the most easily cooled, the most comfortable living space in your entire house. This may be hard to believe if your basement is currently a dank, dark and damp pit of dreariness but if the job is done right using the proper materials, the natural insulating and sound-dampening properties of your below-ground-level basement can indeed become the most pleasant place in your home.
