Many homeowners are deciding to stay in their own homes rather than sell and look for a new home. Instead, they are opting to add more living space. One option which is easier and less invasive than a home addition is to finish your basement.

If you are looking to add liveable space to your home, finishing your basement is the perfect alternative. In almost all cases finishing your basement instead of building an addition is typically less expensive.

At Manzola Carpentry, when clients tell us they want to finish the basement, we ask a few questions. Here are some things you should consider:

What do you want to do with the space?
Are you going to use it for storage?
Are you going to use it for a play room, family room, bedroom, office?
Is it a dry space?

These are all questions which we will consider with you when we are deciding the best ways to use and take advantage of your space. Obviously, you want to get the most use of the space you have in order to add the most useable living and storage space possible.

Basement refinishing is generally less expensive than additions because the walls are already constructed. When remodeling a basement we are just finishing the space that already exists, we do not have to put in the whole foundation, a heating system.

Basement remodeling allows you to turn unused space into something you can enjoy for many years. Finished basements also increase your home value when you do decide that it is time to sell.
