Reasons to Finish Your Basement

A newly remodeled basement could be the key to transforming an average house into your dream home. Consider all the benefits that await you once you finish your basement:

  • Added home value: If you plan on selling your home soon, finishing the basement first will allow you to increase the asking price. The upgrade could also be a good way to capture the attention of potential buyers. Even if you’re not moving, the added home value will continue to appreciate over time.
  • Increased livable space: Wish you had more room for your family to spread out? You don’t have to move—simply finish the basement to make your home feel more spacious!
  • Maximized budget: Compared to adding onto your home elsewhere, finishing the basement allows you to add livable square footage to your home for a fraction of the cost.
  • Added luxury: The main-floor living space is about practicality, but down in the basement, you can add features to make your home more charming and luxurious.

Make the Most of Your Basement Remodel

The extra living space you create for your family in the basement can take on many different forms. Consider adding any combination of the following:

  • Home theater with reclining lounge chairs and a surround sound system
  • Playroom for the kids
  • Game room for the adults, complete with wet bar, pool table, and wide-screen TV
  • Home office with built-ins
  • Fitness room to work out in the comfort of home
  • Apartment suite for the in-laws or to generate extra rental income
  • Wine cellar in the ideal subterranean environment
  • Storage room to hold holiday décor, Halloween costumes, memorabilia, and more

Our Design/Build Process

You have a few options for finishing your basement. One is to work with a designer first, and then hire a builder to perform the construction portion. At JMC, we combine both aspects into a streamlined design/build process. By helping you plan and construct your basement remodel, we provide you with a single point of contact for the duration of the project. This simplifies your basement remodel, ensures smooth communication, and keeps costs down.

We’ll gather your input on every decision and assist with everything from choosing basement flooring to adding electrical wiring to painting the walls. Once the work is finished, we’ll take you on a final walkthrough. We only deem the job complete once you’re 100 percent satisfied.
