Mitchell K. in Chicago, IL

"I contact Belmont builders two weeks ago on a Saturday, within 15 minutes of my call to them I received a call back and Adam set up an estimate ...within a hour later. He can to my house assessed the project and gave me an estimate, with no pressure. He was in my house for no longer than 20 minutes. I had also called other businesses, some would only give me a estimate over the phone and some never called me back. I called Adam within three days, told him i accept his proposal, signed and scanned the proposal back to him, told him the project need to be done by a certain date of which he complied. Adam and his team came out on the timely manner he stated, Installed 8 interior doors and locks in one work day, prepared the work site properly protecting my hardwood floors and then returning the next day to finish the mill work trim and cleaning the work site up the way it was before the project had begun. It looks like I have a brand new home. I was happy that I had hired Belmont Builders, Inc. for my project to be completed. I would recommend this company to anyone. It was a great experience! Thanks! Adam and your team. Mitch K "

Ideas & Inspiration from Chicago Addition & Remodeling Contractors

Chicago Basement Remodeling

Chi-town is known across the country for several things. Deep-dish pizza, well-established and respected sports teams, and hot dogs that are more like a meal than a snack all come to mind when folks in other parts of the nation think of Chicago. Basement remodeling is, on the other hand, probably not at the top of the list of things for tourists to do in the windy city; but for residents of Chicago, basement remodels make a lot of sense. In any densely populated city (which Chicago is certainly among), the amount of useable space a home has is an important part of how appealing a place is to live, and how much it is worth on the market. Not using your available square footage to the fullest extent can mean missing out on not only additional property value, but some pretty good living, as well.

Renovation for Recreation
There's little doubt that one of the best places to relax and hang out is in your own finished basement. Unlike adding a deck, patio, or porch, Chicago basement remodels are usable all year round. When friends and family come to visit, they'll surely want to see the Sears tower, Wrigley field, and other site-seeing staples, but when it comes time to watch the game (and attending it live is simply not an option), they'll appreciate a remodeled basement to do it in almost as much as you do, especially if they're from a slightly warmer climate!

Homeowners often find that their newly finished basements quickly become a favorite room in the house as they are, more than any other room, places where you can really get creative. Pool tables, juke boxes, and big screen TVs that might not fit well in other areas of the home often find more than suitable lodging downstairs. Some have found that a small bar compliments the space well, and all of the stuff you've been storing for years (in some cases, for good reason) may just provide the kind of accent you simply can't buy in a store.

The Practical Side
Not every situation calls for fun and games; for these scenarios, there are some very serious reasons to consider basement remodels. Chicago families that are expanding, or have already expanded, might find that their newly finished basement is the perfect place to store a teenager. In fact, teenager storage is one of the prime motivators for this kind of project all over the country, not just in Chicago. Basement renovation can also make a great guest room.

Though a certain percentage of construction costs are immediately recovered in added property value, finished basements can be money makers long after your appraisal. By adding a bathroom and basic kitchen, some families have turned their Chicago basement remodels into small apartments. These operations are often a little easier in basements than they are in other areas of the house because many of the plumbing and other necessary elements are easier to access.

$57,000 is about the average across the country for basement remodeling; Chicago prices are a bit higher ($69,000 on average). The good news is that, percentage wise, more of the construction costs are immediately added to your home's resale value in Chicago than in the country at large, making basement renovation a sound investment as well as a fun one.
