Basement finishing options

When building an addition is not an option and you need a space for a growing family basement finishing is the easiest solution.

Most of newly constructed houses come with unfinished basement. In some cases you could have a rough-in bathroom plumbing installed by a builder usually with additional charge. To get the most out of a basement transformation and to obtain some basement fishing ideas you should contact a professional contractor or architect.

Professionally finished basement

Professionally finished basement is the cheapest way to add value to your house. The cost of basement finishing may very dependably of the total finishing area, materials used and requested features. The price range is between 25 and 100 dollars per square foot of finished space. Added features like custom wet bar, builds-in, bathroom, kitchenette, basement lowering, side entrance are the most expensive adds on. In some cases a window enlargement might be required especially when you are planning to add a basement bedroom.

Basement finishing cost

Be realistic about construction costs. Usually basement finishing will cost you a small percentage of your property value but it adds another level to it. Also be prepared for unforeseen expenses. In older houses a broken drainage pipe or leaking basement is nothing unusual but it has to be fixed prior basement finishing.

Consider installing a subfloor. Not only it helps to insulate finished flooring from a cold concrete slab but also allows for appropriate water drainage if condensation or minor leakage occurs.

A sound and fire proofing is always a good idea. It helps to contain a sound of entertainment system and separate a man-cave from rest of the world. Fire separation is also required when building a separate living dwelling in a basement.
