Basements Increase A Home’s Value

When families need more storage in their homes and extra space, many of them look downstairs for a solution…all the way downstairs into the basement. A basement remodel offers unlimited options for creating more living space in your home. Commonly thought of as a place for a game room, basements are now becoming so much more:

  • in-law suites
  • home offices
  • craft rooms
  • guest bedrooms
  • second kitchens
  • family rooms
  • “man caves”

If you’re considering transforming your basement into additional living quarters, be sure to address potential moisture and water issues before spending any time and money on remodeling work. Cracks in foundation, poor ventilation, and humidity can wreak havoc on a basement.

TIP: To find out if there’s a problem inside, go outside. Check your exterior walls for moisture problems, look for cracks in the foundation, clean out all of the downspouts and window wells (debris traps in moisture which can be drawn into the basement), and make sure the ground is sloped away from the house, preventing water from running into your foundation walls.

Finishing your basement not only makes better use out of your home’s square footage, the increased living space adds value to your home. This gives you an advantage over nearby homes built on a slab, or with just crawl spaces, or with an unfinished basement.

They're doing work on our house. Reliable, professional, knowledgeable and courteous.
I tapped Choice Home Remodeling for a project involving exterior doors. I spoke to the service manager, Lonnie, who was very helpful and accommodating in scheduling the work. Lonnie called me a few days later to inform me he could have the techs out two weeks earlier, which was greatly appreciated.Tim, the installer manager, and Brian arrived for the service call. From the beginning, they were very polite and professional, and upon speaking to them, I knew they were very knowledgeable and competent. Their work was performed with great precision in a timely manner. I wholeheartedly recommend Choice for any of the numerous services they provide.
