Finished Basements: A Smart, Cost-Effective Way to Increase Your Home’s Living Space

A well-designed and well-built finished basement remodel is a great way to expand your home’s useful living space. Did you know that basement remodeling is also one of the most cost-effective ways to increase your home’s useable space? But that is only true if your finished basement is well designed and properly built.

Unfortunately, not all finished basement remodels are as well-designed and well-built as they could be. Not all basement remodeling contractors can provide the same benefits and enhanced value. Not all basement remodeling contractors are as thorough in their approach as Metro Building and Remodeling.

This is why Metro’s smarter approach to remodeling basements makes so much sense. And this is how we make finishing your basement easier and more rewarding.

Basements Remodeled Around Your Needs

This means starting by finding out what your needs are now, and what you expect your needs to be in the future. It means asking you about your goals, preferences, and priorities for your finished basement. This discussion also includes what you would like to invest in your finished basement remodel. And having us help you get the most benefit and value from your budget.

Finding Opportunities and Developing Ideas for Your Basement Remodel

At our first meeting, after discussing what you are looking to accomplish with your basement remodel, we conduct a preliminary evaluation of your basement. We look for the challenges and opportunities your basement offers. Basements differ from home to home, as does what our clients desire from their finished basement.

Our goal is to determine and show you how we can remodel your basement in ways your finished basement will meet or exceed your expectations. And that your newly remodeled basement can be better than you ever imagined. We strive to remodel every basement to be useful, enjoyable, beautiful, and provide extra value to you and your family. And also increase the value of your home. We always work as hard as possible to create the best finished basement possible within your budget. No matter if your basement remodeling budget is modest or high.

Protecting You by Fixing and Avoiding Problems

Before we start constructing your basement remodel, we look for problem areas such as moisture, structural, or radon issues. Problems like these are best fixed before construction. We also determine the code requirements in your community, such as for emergency egress windows and doors. Sometimes, other things such as heating and cooling system changes need to, or should be part of, your finished basement remodel. By identifying this before budgeting, design, and construction are underway, you don’t end up with avoidable surprise costs or problems.

Think Long Term To Get the Most Value From Your Finished Basement

under stairs playhouse in basement remodelNo matter your life stage, when you are finishing your basement, it makes a great deal of sense to think ahead. How you will use your basement now AND how you expect to use it in the future. It also makes sense to consider how the things you do now will maximize the resale value of your home later.

For Example:

Your finished basement needs today may be for a child-safe playroom for your young children.

In a few years, you may want a place your teenagers will want to have their friends over or where they can study.

You likely will want a place to entertain your friends, engage in your hobbies, and perhaps a very convenient place to exercise. And, if you are like many of our clients, you may want some clean and custom-fitted storage space.

Down the road, you may want to use your basement as a home office, additional bedrooms, or perhaps a guest suite.

Saving You Money in the Future

By discussing, now, your current and expected future finished basement needs; we can very likely save you money down the road. By factoring in your expected uses down the road, we can design and remodel your finished basement today in a way that could make it less expensive to modify for your future uses later.

For Example:

Perhaps you only need a half bath now for a play or study area. However, down the road, you expect to include a guest room. We can design and remodel your half bath today to be large enough for a tub or shower later. And while we lay plumbing under the concrete floor today, before tiling it over, we can also efficiently and less expensively lay the plumbing under your slab now.

Finished Basements: Curb Appeal You Can’t See from the Curb

Today people search for homes to buy online as well as with realtors. So their first view of a home for sale isn’t always from the curb. Homebuyers check off boxes on homes for sale listing sites, like the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, a finished basement, etc. as what they are looking for.

Having a finished basement expands the number of people interested in your home.

It makes your home more move-in ready for those wanting a finished basement and, of course, can justify a higher sale price.

Client Comments

MBRG finished our basement a couple of months ago -and we love it. They were awesome!

They were very professional, always arrived on time and kept to schedule, and had great ideas. Plus George and the team are super nice and friendly.

I would unequivocally recommend MBRG for your remodeling needs!
MBRG finished the basement in our new house. We were extremely pleased with the whole experience including the final product.

The design staff assisted us in choosing paint colors and other design decisions- We love the dark trim that was suggested!!

Management thoroughly communicated each step of the process including keeping us up to date on where we fell within our budget. There were no surprises at the end!

We are looking forward to using MBRG on our future projects!
We were so pleased with our entire experience with MBRG! They completed a basement finishing project for us, to include a room with closet and a full bathroom, all in less than a month but still with attention to detail.

We saw George several times a week and he responded quickly to every single question or concern we encountered, both in person and in email. The crew were pleasant, quiet, and left their workspace clean every day.

I’d absolutely recommend MBRG to friends and already have a few ideas for our next projects!
