Basement Remodeling and Finishing
Many homes’ basements are the most neglected areas of the home: They’re under-loved and under-appreciated. If you would love to add living space, storage space, an extra bedroom and/or bathroom, home gym, home office, playroom, craft room, etc. to your home, and you have an unfinished basement, it’s time to give that space some love! In most homes, every square foot is premium real estate. If you’re not using your basement, you’re cheating yourself.
An Unfinished Basement is A Blank Canvas!
When you choose a reliable contractor to oversee and complete your basement finishing job, you’ll be rewarded with a warm and inviting space. The best part is that there are no hard and fast rules you must follow when you renovate your basement.
If the rest of your house is neutral, finishing your basement is an opportunity to add a splash of color and personality to your home. You can stain and seal the existing concrete floors for a modern, low-maintenance look or you can carpet or tile over them. You can go rustic, traditional, or modern. When your project is complete, you’ll forget you’re in the basement. All you’ll see is a clean, appealing room.
Be Careful to Choose An Experienced Contractor for your Delaware Valley Home
Turning unfinished basements into finished basements requires a specialized menu of skills and knowledge. There are unique challenges to consider, such as:
- Making sure the entry and egress points are adequate and safe,
- Knowing the importance of installing a sump pump in flood prone areas,
- Knowing the importance of choosing building materials that can stand up to dampness (and possible standing water),
- Knowing the importance of installing vapor barriers and offset spaces,
- Knowing the best way to insulate the basement to keep the cold out in winter, and
- Knowing why baseboard (floor) heating vents are ideal for basements (and how to install them.)
A Finished Basement Will Increase Your Home’s Resale Value
Even if you have no intention of selling your home in the foreseeable future, there may come a day that you’re ready to upsize, downsize, or move out of Delaware County (for a new job, perhaps.) Finishing your basement will turn unused square footage into amenities that will help your home sell more quickly and for top dollar.
