Many of us grew up with dark, damp basements. Sometimes they were semi-finished with a couch, some mold on the floor and a horrifying furnace hidden away somewhere. Sometimes they were just a pit where your parents threw holiday decorations during off seasons.
This does not have to be the case! Finishing a basement turns it into a valuable part of your home that you can use for anything you can imagine. At Straight Up Construction Inc. we’re in the business of surprising you with just how much you can love your basement.
Why Should I Remodel?
There are a lot of good reasons to remodel your basement, and the best part is it won’t break the bank. It costs between $10 and $35 per square foot to finish a basement, which, especially if you’re thinking of small basement renovation ideas, is worth it.
The square footage of a basement is not often included in the full footage count of your home. So, imagine what you can do with all that extra space! A 2000 square foot home may in fact be 2500 square feet, which makes a huge difference.
When you finish your basement, you will be adding:
With proper basement insulation and air sealing, your home will become more energy efficient, helping you save on energy bills for the rest of the time you live there.
Basement finishing is one of the few remodeling projects that guarantees a return on investment. At 75 cents per dollar, it’s worth it!
Rather than building on a pricey addition that your city bylaws may not allow, look to the basement instead to add extra space to your home.
If you’re not using your home’s space to its fullest potential, consider finishing your basement. The benefits are many, with no drawbacks aside from upfront cost.
