Basement Remodeling Adds Living Space Cost Effectively

Unfinished basements are often wasted or, at best, poorly used space. In many Northern, Virginia homes, basements represent one-third to one-half of the potential living area. And, in most cases, finishing a basement is less expensive per square foot of added living area than is building an addition. It is also a good way of adding living area if your lot does not allow you to build to the side or back of your home.

Finished Basements Can Be Bright and Flexible

Basements can be used for almost any purpose. Family rooms, playrooms, hobby areas, home offices, game rooms, home gyms, bedrooms and guest rooms, bathrooms with spa tubs, fitted storage areas and more.

Even if your basement is below grade, a basement can be light and airy. Besides properly designed lighting, almost all below grade basements can be retrofitted with windows, as well as emergency egress windows required for some types of finished basement projects.

When Remodeling a Basement, Experience, Creativity and Talent Matter

Since 1987, we have been finishing basements. We’ve helped countless homeowners in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, McLean, and Great Falls, Virginia transform their unfinished basements into newly finished basements that look – and “live” – beautifully.

We provide smart, creative solutions for basement remodeling challenges such as low ceilings, cold floors, moisture and radon problems, as well as basements that get little natural light.

We know exactly how to configure your space to work around posts, pipes, heating and cooling systems. We can install new bathrooms even on basement slabs that don’t have wastewater lines pre-installed or that have to “drain and flush up.” Lighting is a big part of making a basement enjoyable, and we know how to add lighting that makes you forget you are in a basement. Even a basement that is below grade.
