Remodeling / January 13, 2022
It is natural to wonder whether calling remodeling services in Vaughan to redo your basement is worthwhile. It is a big job, it can be expensive, and the remodeling process can cause some short-term inconvenience. However, basement renovation is one of the remodeling jobs with which homeowners express the most satisfaction after it is complete because of the many benefits that it has to offer.
You may find that your home does not provide sufficient space for all the things you want to do. You may have adequate space for the basics of daily living, such as sleeping, eating, and grooming, but little room for recreation. If your home is like many, the basement is almost the same size as the main level in square footage. Therefore, by finishing the basement, you automatically double your living space. This can then become anything you like:
Depending on the size of your basement, it may be able to be more than one of these things at the same time.
One specific use to which many homeowners put their remodelled basement is increased sleeping space. As your family grows, you may find that you no longer have enough bedrooms to accommodate all your children. A basement remodel allows you to build more bedrooms so that each of your children has his or her own space and doesn’t have to double up.
Then again, maybe it isn’t your children who require more space. Maybe your parents are no longer able to live on their own. Bringing them home to live with you may be an attractive alternative to moving them into a long-term care facility. However, they need their own space, and a basement remodel can give it to them. You can create a new bedroom suite in the basement and either reserve it for your parents’ use or, if accessibility is a problem, let them have your bedroom on the main floor and consider the basement to be the new master suite.
Remember that if you intend to convert your basement into bedrooms, you have to comply with safety codes. Most importantly, you need to include egress windows in the remodeling plan so that, if there is ever a fire, the people sleeping in the basement can escape safely and easily.
The value of your home is based on several different factors. Finished square footage is one of the most important. By remodelling your basement, you increase the finished square footage, and your home value may nearly double as a result. Your home’s value is also based on comparison with the sale of similar homes in the neighbourhood. If comparable homes have also undergone basement remodelling, you can claim a similar price for your home.
In addition to increasing your home’s value, a finished basement can also help you to sell it more quickly and easily. Some prospective buyers may view it as a bonus, one huge thing that they can mark off their to-do list because it has already been taken care of. Others may view it as a necessity, something they require in the house before they consider purchasing it. In either case, buyers may be more eager to bid on your home and willing to pay more than they would otherwise. A finished basement may make your home stand out among other houses for sale, and you can claim a higher price compared to those that do not have a finished basement.
A basement remodel may be a big job, but it can yield an excellent return on investment, especially when handled by professionals. Our experienced craftsmen provide a seamless experience by walking you carefully through the entire process. Find out more about all the remodeling services we offer in Vaughan.
