Finished Basements: A Smart, Cost-Effective Way to Increase Your Home’s Useful Living Space and the Value of Your Home

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 usable space? But these things are only true if your finished basement is well-designed and properly built.

Unfortunately, some finished basement remodels are not as well-designed or well-built as they could be.  And unfortunately, not all basement remodeling contractors can deliver imaginative design, high-quality construction, exceptional service, 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. This is how we make finishing your basement easier and more rewarding.

Basements Remodeled Around Your Needs

Our goal is to help you get the most enjoyment, best use, and highest value from your remodeled basement. We start by learning what your needs are now and what you expect them to be in the future. We ask 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. With that information, we can help you get the most benefit and value from your budget.

We Identify Opportunities and Develop 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 opportunities your basement offers and the challenges it presents. Basements differ from home to home, as does what our clients desire from their finished basement.

Our goal is to show you how we can remodel your basement in ways your finished basement will meet and likely exceed your expectations. We work diligently to develop solutions for your new basement, which are 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 by doing so, we 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.

Fixing and Preventing Basement Problems

Before we start remodeling your basement, we look for problem areas such as moisture and potential structural issues. We look to see if radon is an issue that should be addressed. It’s best to fix problems like these before construction.

We also review the code requirements in your community, such as for emergency egress windows and doors. By identifying these things before budgeting, design, and construction are underway, you don’t end up with avoidable surprise costs or problems.

Get the Most Value From Your Finished Basement by Thinking Long Term

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:

Today may need a child-safe finished basement for your young children to enjoy. In a few years, you may want a basement where your teenagers can have friends over or where they can study. You might also need a comfortable area to entertain your friends, play pool, engage in hobbies, and perhaps even a home gym. 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 your current and expected future needs from your finished basement, we can often remodel your basement today in a way that will save you money later. By factoring in your expected uses down the road, we can design and remodel your finished basement today in a way that can make it less expensive to modify for your expected future uses later.

For Example:

Perhaps today you only need a half bath for your new finished basement. However, down the road, you expect to convert some of your basement into a guest room. We can design and remodel your basement’s new half bath today to be large enough for a tub or shower later. And, while we open up the concrete floor to install drainage pipes for the half bath, we can also install the drainage pipes for the future shower.

Installing all the drainage pipes at once, it is much less expensive than installing only the drain pipes you need today and then having to tear up the concrete and tile floor later to add the tub or shower drains.

Finished Basements Increase a Home’s Value and Online Curb Appeal

When people search for homes online, having a finished basement increases your home’s online curb appeal and resale value. Having a finished basement also expands the number of people interested in your home.

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

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!
