Cincinnati Basement Remodeling

Being located at the end of “Tornado Alley,” Cincinnati is a city with a lot of basements. For many Cincinnati homeowners, those basements serve as extra storage space or a child’s playroom, but homeowners who want to make the most out of this floor can opt for getting a basement remodel. While it’s a big decision to make, a basement remodel can greatly expand the usable space of your home and often increase a home’s value at resale.

What Do You Want Out of Your Basement?

Basement remodels provide a special transformation to your home - you're often working with a fairly blank slate. With that, however, come a lot of decisions for homeowners.

  • How do you want to use the space? Perhaps you're looking for a recreation room for your family to enjoy or for entertaining guests. Maybe you want to create a guest bedroom or even add a bathroom to increase your usable space in the home. These choices can dramatically affect your needs and costs for the remodel.
  • How important is adding value to your home? Of course, everyone likes a good return on their investment. But if this is particularly high on your priority list, there may be a few extra items to consider. If you're adding a bedroom, you may want to make sure you have an exterior egress of some kind so your bedroom can be counted as such when selling your home. Some only consider a room a bedroom if there is a closet included, as well. Our craftsmen can add an egress window or other features as well.
  • Do you want to DIY any portions? This is a common desire from our customers on lots of projects. Maybe you just want framing completed so you can install the drywall yourself. Or maybe you want a fully completed basement that you don't have to touch. Either way, this can be a way to reduce costs and allow you to get your hands on the project as well. We work with our customers to make sure you're getting exactly what you want - because your home is possibly your most important investment in your life!

Other Basement Remodeling Considerations

  • Waterproofing is very important. Basements are susceptible to water intrusion, and the last thing you want is all your work to be undone with water coming through the foundation. Make sure any cracks or fissures are found and dealt with before any major work is done.
  • Basements are notoriously colder than the rest of the house. Proper and increased insulation is a must, and some homeowners even go so far as to add sound insulation to keep sound from spreading to the rest of the home and vice versa.
  • Basements offer little natural light. This is important to keep in mind when designing the remodel not only in terms of electrical wiring but also in deciding what colors you’ll be painting with. You’ll need more light sources than elsewhere in your home, but brighter colors can help make the most out of whatever lighting you plan to use.
  • Drywall or drop ceiling? Your unfinished basement no doubt has visible HVAC and plumbing running to the other parts of the home. A hard ceiling like drywall covers those up nicely and looks great but can complicate future repairs if that equipment needs repair.

Even if you plan on using your basement for (mostly) storage, basement remodeling can still help you customize and organize things even more effectively. Shelving, closets, bookcases, etc. can help you bring the most out of your basement’s storage space.
