A finished basement or home addition is an excellent way to solve the problem of overflowing closets and cramped living quarters. As a bonus, home additions and finished basements both add market value to the property. Adding a room typically involves a significant amount of planning and construction, while the work involved in a basement remodel largely depends on what already exists in terms of structure and plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems.
Finishing a basement first requires careful attention to moisture levels in the space. Mold or mildew caused by problems with water drainage or high humidity will ultimately ruin any renovation work. When planning a home addition, it’s best to make design choices that will create a seamless transition between the existing structure and the new space. A reputable home remodeling contractor will be able to guide you through the process of finishing your basement or adding on to your home and help you achieve an end result that adds value and beauty to your property.
