In Chicago and North Shore finishing your basement will earn you extra cash when selling your home since you are utilizing something that is already available to develop a desirable feature.

There are many ideas for your basement project like you can turn it into a children play area, home office, gym and exercise area, basement bar, music room, home theater, extra bedroom or family area. Or all of those!

One of the basement remodeling ideas would be to build a wine cellar or a library, with built in shelving. It will seem appealing to your friends and guests and in the longer run to future buyers, who may be interested in your property.

Considerations for Finishing Basement

When considering a home improvement project, especially the basement remodeling undertaking, take into consideration the potential added cost if you need to make additional head space digging into your foundation floor. It is a good idea to consult with us what your local Chicago or suburban building codes permit. Increasing a basement height might quickly eat into your renovation budget even before a single wall is finished.

Basement leaks
Watch for moist and hidden leaks in basement – it can quickly kill a value of the entire basement remodeling project!

Basement drainage beforeBefore we start finishing a basement we always inspect the walls for potential/existing leaks. This task is always harder when we undertake re-finishing the basement, since many walls are covered in drywall and insulation. Thermal imaging is a technology that allows for this sort of inspection, but in many cases even a nose can be a good tool when moist is in the air. No one would ever want to have a freshly finished basement smell like dump and we will make our best effort to make sure your basement is dry and safe.

We are licensed, bonded and insured. Our personnel receive necessary certifications so that you know that your basement renovation will be handled by professionals. We always recommend obtaining necessary permits from local authorities for the home renovation projects we do and when a building inspector approves our work, it is just an additional assurance for you that we do the renovation project correctly.

In many areas like Chicago and North suburbs when it comes to refinancing or even your home the financing banks may request permits for the renovation work especially when plumbing, electrical and structural jobs were performed.
