Thirty years of experience has given us a lot of time to hone our basement remodeling process into a well-oiled machine. While the process for remodeling a basement is similar to remodeling any other room in your home, there are a few things to watch out for before you get started.

Before we even start designing, we inspect the basement’s interior for possible water issues.

We then inspect the ground outside to make sure it’s graded away from the foundation. And we look for foundation wall cracks. If we discover any, they must be repaired before work begins.

We also confirm your neighborhood’s permit regulations and building costs, particularly for electrical and plumbing work which requires inspection.

Communication is Key

One of the most important elements of our remodeling process is open and honest communication. We believe it’s the one sure way to guarantee a finished basement you love and a remodeling experience that, from start to finish, is an enjoyable one.

We give you our honest feedback on your budget and scheduling requirements and we take the time to explain how each option will affect your budget.

We believe this helps avoid any misunderstandings or disappointments and makes for a smooth and successful remodel.
