Many homeowners are currently missing a huge opportunity to add value to their homes: a finished basement. Your home is an investment, after all. Finished basements add space and functionality to your home, which you will find valuable–and so will future buyers.
How should I finish my basement?
A finished basement should be as personal as the rest of your home, so yours may look quite different from your neighbor’s. The possibilities of finished basements are endless, but a few ideas include:
- A guest bedroom
- New bedrooms for adolescents who previously shared a bedroom
- A media or family room
- A children’s playroom
- A large home office
- A multipurpose room accommodating several needs at once
Should I DIY my finished basement?
Many homeowners attempt to finish their own basements and run into unexpected and costly surprises! Moisture control issues, fire code requirements for egresses, and radon testing are just a few things that DIYers may face.
That’s why we recommend consulting with professionals on your finished basement project. Let Schiebner Construction help you design a space that adds function and value to your home. Our expertise ensures that your finished basement will be a safe, central, functional part of your home for years to come.
