Finishing your basement is the most cost efficient way to gain quality square footage in your home. Finishing your basement is about 1/3 the cost of an extension or addition and can be designed to meet your exact needs. The days of people thinking of basements as moist, dark, dingy areas is over. The addition of French drains, better ventilation systems and egress windows (help you exit in an emergency and let sunshine into the basement) will give any basement an entirely different feel. Give the kids a clean new playroom, give yourself that always wanted home theater room, a guest room, even an apartment while increasing the value of your home at the same time. In today’s economy, getting the most for your money is key and if your home has the advantage of having a basement then take advantage now. Don’t forget here at Kentstruction, doing a basement from scratch is only about 50% of the basements we do as the other 50% are existing finished basements that need updating and modernizing.
