Choosing a Contractor

It can be challenging and time-consuming to hire a contractor. Although there are many companies that advertise remodeling services, not all of them are qualified. Contractors advertise every day but don’t indicate that they don’t have the proper insurance coverage in case something goes wrong. This is not a situation anyone wants to be in. It is important to find a company that you can trust and rely on.

Every time a quality job gets completed, it increases the value of your home or design. It is possible to maximize the value and minimize the cost. Finishing a basement is a common renovation that can significantly increase a home’s value.

Your basement is a great place to start if you don’t have the time or desire to finish it yourself. A basement can be used as a blank canvas and can provide additional square footage. Your budget will be determined by the type of room that you choose. A pool room is quite different from a basement apartment. Make sure you have a realistic budget for the project. Your location plays a major role in your budget. It is therefore important to research the average cost of building your vision in your area.

Flooring is another major expense. The floor will often need to be resurfaced or replaced. Costs will vary depending on the type of flooring and whether the floor needs to be leveled. Wallcoverings can be one of the most expensive parts of your renovation. Basement walls are often underground so moisture must be addressed. Flooring and wall coverings will consume approximately 15% of your budget.

Your budget will be further reduced by budgeting for electricity, plumbing, and carpentry. Here is where you need to consider the size of your room. Water features that will require plumbing or electrical wiring must be included in your budget. The remainder of the cost will go towards painting, insulation, and furnishing your basement.

Each project will have its own “reasonable” budget. It is sometimes better to save money for 6 months instead of rushing into the project and receiving sub-par work.
