Reviews of Boston Basement Remodeling Companies

Project: Remodel a Basement
Braintree, MA

He would be a ten for me! I would definitely hire them again. They were very well prepared and organized, and very knowledgeable about their product. Its all mold and mildew resistant. They had videos of the process for us to see a sample of their work and how its done. They answered our questions thoroughly, He was very great about giving ideas and recommendations, and they specialize in basements. Their receptionist made me feel so comfortable and reassured that I wasn't going to be scammed. She called an hour before the guy came out. She made sure we felt comfortable and knew what was going on, she had really good communication skills. Make sure if you are taking on a basement remodel or a basement repair project, you hire a basement specialist. They did such a good job and I am so pleased with their work!

CRJ just finished our basement and Carlos and his team did an awesome job! They completed the entire job efficiently without cutting corners and kept in great communication throughout the process. CRJ was a pleasure to work with and we'd highly recommend them.

Ideas & Inspiration from Boston Addition & Remodeling Contractors

Remodeling a Basement in Boston

Basement remodeling is one home improvement that hasn't caught on yet in Boston like it has in some other parts of country, probably because many Bostonians have a hard time visualizing how it's possible to turn the typical damp, dark, and musty New England basement into something fitting to spend any time in. The truth of the matter is that it is possible. Not only that, basement remodels in Boston are also one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to increase square footage and add valuable living space to your home.

Costs for Remodeling Basements in Boston
Before we get into the nitty gritty of basement remodels, let's cover what most homeowners want to know from the get go: the bottom line. HomeAdvisor doesn't stake its reputation on blindly referring contractors to homeowners. Instead, we follow up on every job by contacting homeowners and collecting information on the final total price, how satisfied homeowners were with the work they had done, and how long the job took from start to completion. When it comes to Boston basement remodels, our research shows that the average cost of the basement remodels done by our partner contractors runs about $12,500, with a low of $9,000 and a high of $50,000. Of course, keep in mind that the compact nature of Boston itself, and the small basements in many houses, brownstones, and townhomes drag that average down some. If you're out in Greater Boston in a larger home, you're probably more likely to push that top figure than you are getting your basement remodeled with a final cost in the ten to fifteen thousand dollar range.

Timelines for Basement Remodels
And how long does it take? The answer to that question depends on the nature of your remodel. Our quickest remodel was finished in a little more than a month. The longest took almost 6. If all you're doing is throwing down some carpet, putting up drywall, and slapping on some paint, you'll be done in a jiffy. Most basement remodels have a lot more to them, however, including moving and/or installing plumbing, updating and expanding the electrical, re-routing ductwork, and waterproofing. That generally means you'll be dealing with multiple contractors who have to coordinate their roles in your remodel, leading to longer timelines and increased costs.

The Not so Secret Trick to Successful Basement Remodeling
What's the one innovation in the home improvement industry that has transformed basement remodels in the Boston area from a dream into a reality? In a word: waterproofing. If your contractor suggests that you can pull off a basement remodeling project without it, you should definitely get a second opinion, if not a new contractor altogether. Boston gets over 40 inches of precipitation a year in the form of rain and snow, and its overcast winters and frequent fog mean that things take an awfully long time to dry out. With those kind of conditions, it's safe to say that it's a rare Bostonian who doesn't have trouble with water getting into their basement in one form or another. That's why basement waterproofing is such a critical first step to take in and around Beantown. With the right combination of basement drainage systems, waterproofed walls, sump pumps, and taking precautions with everything from framing materials to flooring, a Boston basement remodel can transform that dank, dark hole you presently call a basement into a living space you'll be able to enjoy for years to come.

Imagine the Possibilities
Once your waterproofing needs are addressed, the sky is the limit for basement remodels. Maybe you've been dreaming of a home entertainment area for watching Pats games come Sunday, maybe you're a fitness nut and there's a home gym in your future, or maybe your family has finally outgrown your home and you're looking for a few extra bedrooms and a home office. Whatever it is, if you're looking for extra living space and a remodel that will drastically increase the square footage and value of your home, then a Boston basement remodeling project could be exactly the undertaking you've been searching for.
