Basements are a common “extra room” in Maryland, but they are not always in useable order. These days, with family living at home longer and a market that is less friendly to “buying up” to a bigger home, we need to make the most of the space we already have. This is where Calvert Handyman and Home Improvement can help you add the most space and the most value to your home, finishing your basement from start to finish.
Finishing a basement involves putting in wall studs, installing the walls and ceiling of your choice, coordinating any needed plumbing and electrical work, putting in your flooring, hanging doors, and installing whatever else is necessary to meet your goals for the new room. It may be your goal to set aside the basement as its own separate apartment, complete with a bathroom and kitchenette with its own kitchen cabinets, or as a library with a fireplace and built-in bookshelves. Or you may envision it as an entertainment den—whether a “man cave” or something more friendly to both genders—complete with a bar area and a surround-sound entertainment system.
Though finishing a basement is a major remodeling project, its real value in adding living space for your family shouldn’t be underestimated, nor its potential to add market value and selling power to your home.
