The Advantages of Renovating your Basement

When the time comes and you need more space, remodeling your basement is one of the first places that homeowners turn to when considering their remodeling options.  If you basement is unfinished, you really are not taking advantage of all the space your home has to offer.  There are several benefits to remodeling your basement.

Remodeling Your Basement is Cost Effective

Renovating your basement has the best value per square foot because the structure or footprint is already in place.  The basement space is already there, so you should take advantage of that and make it functional.  If you’re considering remodeling your basement we have a few payment options that are provided through EnerBank.  They include No Interest, No Payment options, as well as 0% Interest Options (seen below). financing

Remodeling Your Basement Can be Done Quickly and Conveniently

Remodeling your basement is not something that will interfere with your day to day life.  Unlike other remodeling options, there’s no roof to remove, and you can live in your home while your basement is being renovated.

Moss Building & Design has special turn-key teams that can finish your basement in 3-4 weeks.  A turn-key team is a team that works on your home improvement from beginning to end.  It is a team of 2-3 people who are well rounded in several crafts, and they are the same 2-3 people who are completing your home improvement.  This eliminates the stress of wondering who is going to be at your home, because the same people will be there until your home improvement is completed.

Creative Basement Ideas

Finishing your basement allows room for a lot of creative flexibility.  The space can be anything you need it to be, including:

  • In-home office
  • Home gym
  • Media room
  • Guest bedroom
  • Storage space
  • Play room
  • In-law suite

The possibilities go on and on, depending on your personal needs.
