Are you using your unfinished basement for storage? Have you thought about transforming it into a finished space? We know it’s a hard decision to make, so let The Basement Guys of Pittsburgh help! We put together a more detailed list of pros and cons of finishing your basement to consider:
The basement space is all yours! Want a gym space? You’ve got it! A suite? Absolutely! Half storage, half-finished? Yes! The Basement Guys of Pittsburgh can assist with the design and can show you a few customer examples to help you get ideas. After a design is picked, you get to choose the color and type of product, such as carpet and wall colors.
If you plan on selling your home in the future, a finished basement raises the value of your home. It also attracts great buyers and makes for a great open house. Even if you don’t sell, it increases value by making the most of your home’s space.
This goes alongside value. You’re using space that’s already there and turning it functional.
You can still store belongings in the basement, but now it is up to you on how you use the private space. If you choose to host a party, or watch movies, a finished basement is excellent for keeping noise levels down. Making a home office will guarantee peace and quiet.
This is a no-brainer. The Basement Guys of Pittsburgh are a full-service basement finishing company, which means each job comes with all the products for a complete job. When you pay for a finished basement, you are paying highly trained individuals to tear down, rebuild and install.
Basements sit below the surface, which makes them prone to moisture seepage from the soil outside. Wet basements cause mold growth, and can lead to larger problems. But don’t worry! Our products are specifically made for basements to keep moisture out! And if moisture still finds a way in, we have warranties on all our products and can also waterproof the basement prior to finishing.
Basements are dark, we get it. Our team can install as many artificial lights in the ceiling as you want. We also offer Egress basement windows to allow natural sunlight inside.
Contractors who finish a basement will sometimes restrict plumbing access. Once the space is completed, reaching any wires or piping may be difficult. The Basement Guys of Pittsburgh can add access panels to important areas upon the owner’s request. Our team does a thorough sweep of the space before starting to identify any problems, wires, pipes, and more.
