Benefits of Basement Refinishing

Are you currently using your unfinished basement as a storage area? Imagine turning your basement into a usable living space and increasing the value of your property significantly. Consider refinishing your basement for extra space and adding the things you’ve wanted and needed in your home.

Here are some of the ways finishing out your basement can add value to your property:


Adding a bedroom to your home increasing the resale value of your home. Not to mention that you have more room for guests visiting. 


When you add another bathroom in your home, it increases the functionality and value.

Adding Space

“Based on the lot size, there may be zoning restrictions on your property which prohibit you from making certain additions to the property. Often, you cannot expand out because it will bring your property too close to the neighbors. You may not be able to expand upwards either, especially if the home is already two stories. Therefore, this basement space becomes very valuable. It allows you to add functional space to the home without interfering with any zoning restrictions”, explains The Balance Small Business

Add Recreation

Transform your current dark and dreary space into a recreation area, kids play area, organized storage space or a little retreat for visiting guests. A finished basement gives you many new options to your home to enjoy.

Energy Efficiency

123 Remodeling states that “a completely remodeled and finished basement will increase the energy efficiency of your home. Remodeling a basement involves adding insulation to the walls, floor and ceiling as well as additional drywall, sheet rock and flooring. In addition, adding carpet and sealing off cracks will prevent cold air from seeping in during the winter or escaping when you have the AC cranked up in the summer. The basement is the foundation of the house and a finished basement will ultimately reduce energy usage and save you money. In other words, the overall energy efficiency of your home begins with the basement”.


It is highly recommended that you select and interview a qualified and experienced contractor to get the job done correctly.
