Basements are typically about one third of the entire home’s available space, 600 to 800 sq. ft. in the average home. And while some basements have been finished to create more living area, the majority of these spaces are used as makeshift laundry rooms, home offices, and storage repositories for everything from spare freezers to pantries, paints, and paperwork. In other words, most basements are underused.
Professionally converted basements can help in enhancing the market value of your home, particularly in urban areas where extra square footage brings a premium. There are a number of requirements that need to be factored in when converting a basement. Special care needs to be given to ceiling height, electrical wiring, access, plumbing and ventilation requirements, as well as requisite fire escape options. Our team of experts not only makes the necessary provisions, we will also advise you on how you can further optimize your basement design to ensure higher value for your home.
Were seeing a lot of remodeling going on, and that’s a lot different from new floor staining projects, says Barbara Sargent of Kemiko Concrete Products, Leonard, Texas. When you pull up carpet or tile, you never know what you might run into. Carpet glue, tile mastics, water and urine stains, chalk marks, caulk, grease stains, paint drips, and rust spots are just a few of the contaminants that staining contractors have encountered, she notes.
I got quote a quote for 720 sqf basement area for 21 K. This included a separate room with full bathroom with standing shower(Pluming cost included). Includes dry wall installation (220 linear feet) and carpeted. Also included is cost of drop ceiling and 7 high hats lights. They will move laundry/dryers gas & electric connection to separate unfinished area which will be separated by 6 panel hollow doors. The carpets and fixtures are standard grade with allowance amounts specified, and we would pay the excess for upgrades. We live in NJ and cost per foot seems to be ok…around $29 per sq. ft. This guys are licensed and I was pleased with the deck job they did.
