Finishing a basement is not much different from kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Yes, there are aspects of basement renovations that will have a different set of requirements, but the same principles of proper planning are also equally important. In addition to this, the benefits of finishing your basement in terms of functionality, additional space, and increased property value are hard to ignore.
There is a lot of underutilized space essentially wasting away in unfinished basements. In case you’re still on the fence about taking on this home remodeling project, here are a few reasons from our experts at JLR Home Renovation why you should consider finishing your basement this year.
Unlike other rooms in your home, basements can fill a number of different roles depending on your preferences. Your remodeling contractor can help you create a home theater complete with lighting controls and a bar, or help you plan for an additional bedroom for guests or your more independent family members. The cost of renovating your basement can be easily justified by the value it adds to your home.
Unfinished basements can be a breeding ground for many different problems. Minor issues like corroded pipes and major issues like uneven foundations can all be addressed by proper basement remodeling. This will not only increase the value of your home but will also ensure the safety and security of your entire structure.
Heating and Cooling
Winters in Pennsylvania can be harsh but a well-timed basement remodeling project can provide your family with a warmer space to weather out the cold. Talk to your remodeling contractor about incorporating adequate insulation and heating in your basement space to help make it more comfortable for whatever use you may have planned for it.
