Hyde Park Basement Remodeling Services

There are a lot of basements in Hyde Park, and whether your using yours for the extra storage space or for a man cave, you’re probably not getting the most out of that floor of your home until you get a basement remodel. Basement remodels can substantially increase the usable space of your home and frequently raise a home’s value at resale.

Basement Remodels are Serious Investments

Basement remodels are extensive projects due to the fact that you’re taking a ton of unused square footage and converting it into a living area. As with most large projects, there are a million diverse things to consider and decide on before starting a basement remodel.

First, homeowners in Hyde Park looking for a basement remodel have to ask yourself a whole lot of questions: what will you be using the space for? A leisure room? A guest bedroom? Bar and billiards room? Whatever it is, it will affect the way your remodel design and, likely, your home’s resale value too. Adding a bedroom to a home, for example, often adds price to the listing of a home immediately. Framing, design, accessibility, electrical wiring, etc.--all these will be affected by what the purpose of this area will be. Will you need toilets and bathrooms? Full or half of-baths? Make sure you know the answers to these questions before getting too serious about a basement remodel.

Basement Remodels - What You Should Understand/Keep in Mind

Waterproofing is vital when it comes to a basement remodel. Being underground, basements are susceptible to water intrusion, and the last thing you want is all of your home and all your work be undone with water coming through the foundation. Whoever is working on your basement remodel should know to observe any cracks or fissures and see to them before any major task is undertaken.

Another thing to remember is that basements tend to be colder than the rest of the house, so have that in mind while remodeling. Proper and larger insulation is a necessary too, and some homeowners will even go as far as adding sound insulation to keep noise coming from the basement to a minimum.

Basements also tend to be darker than the rest of the home as there isn’t any easy way for natural light to enter. Keep that in the mind while designing your basement remodel not only in terms of electrical wiring for where the lights will be but also when identifying what colors you’ll be painting with. Brighter colors can help make the most out of a limited lighting situation.

The type of ceiling for your basement is another key consideration. Unfinished basements have visible HVAC and plumbing running to the other parts of the house; a tough ceiling like drywall covers those ugly pipes and vents neatly and can look great but may complicate forthcoming repairs if a repairman needs to access those pipes or vents.

Unfinished basements may house all of the HVAC equipment but rarely any of it set up to operate on the basement floor itself. Not only does heating and air need to be set up, it needs to be installed so that air is dispersed evenly and efficiently throughout the basement. Failure to do so results in having poorer energy efficiency and uneven temperatures throughout the basement.

For homeowners who use their basement for storage, for instance, getting a remodel to suit that purpose can greatly improve the basement’s storage capacity. Shelving, closets, bookcases, and more can help you organize and make the most out of the space.

You also don’t want your basement to appear too different from the rest of your home. The goal is to make your basement look like it’s always been part of the house. This means finding matching trims, doors, handrails, paint, and so on. Sounds easier said than done, given the vast variety of these in circulation. Having developed connections with suppliers and manufacturers makes it a little easier for a company like ours than a regular homeowner.
