Let’s Tackle Your Basement!

We’ve talked before about why you should finish your basement. The benefits of this project are numerous, to say the least. More living space, more home value, more options. No need to sell you on the idea and you are ready to get started! Before you start daydreaming of your man cave/sewing room/exercise space, there are a few practical things you will want to make sure of before you hit the “Go” button.

 

You may be thinking that this would be a perfect DIY project. Well, maybe for some it would be. Those with hands on experience remodeling houses may be well acquainted with all the steps necessary to make a project successful. But for a good number of folks, wiring, plumbing, installing drywall, and ensuring a room is well insulated are activities they are not accustomed to. Plus, the idea of working nights and weekends for one to two or more years to finish a basement is not exactly appealing. Staying up late watching 439 YouTube videos for this or that step is not the same as hiring someone with 30-plus years of experience on the job who can give you their full attention.
