Looking to update your old basement? Taking your crawl space and turning into a finished basement is a process. It is a process that requires expert knowledge, proper planning, and an appropriate budget. Basement remodeling and basement finishing is something best left to the professionals. Any licensed remodeler will tell you: The few major factors that need to be worked out BEFORE you can begin renovating entail waterproofing, foundation & basement layout work, and having a team who keeps the homeowner involved when drawing up basement designs.
While there’s plenty of information out there on DIY basement finishing, reading about basement insulation or how to frame a basement and actually framing a basement wall are two completely different things. Going into a basement remodel project without understanding all that is goes into updating your basement systems will put a strain on your pocket book and raise the final cost to finish your basement. This is where we fell can help. Most basement contractors aren’t transparent about costs when it comes to remodeling a basement; whereas, Aloha Restoration Co. looks to keep you involved every step of the way!
The average cost to finish a basement really does depend on what our experts see when they inspect your home. Many basement remodeling contractors have no problem giving you a low-end estimate (per square foot) when you call-in and ask “what’s the average cost to finish a 1500 sq ft basement?” When they get to your home, they then provide you with an invoice for work that’s double or triple what was estimated over the phone. At Aloha Restoration, Co., we believe providing you an answer like this is simply negligent and unethical and here’s why…
The cost of finishing a basement depends on the total square footage of your basement. It also depends on the cost of labor and if there is a bathroom or bedroom in your basement suite. Some other factors are whether or not you have any egress windows and your flooring type. For those calling in asking “how to remodel a basement on a budget,” it’s imperative to note that trying to add a full regular bedroom, new flooring, and needing any egress windows will bring your basement cost way up.
Knowing this information, as a responsible basement finishing company, how can we quote you at $10 – $25 per square over the phone as many of our competitors do?
