Ideas & Inspiration from Pittsburgh Addition & Remodeling Contractors


Pittsburgh Basement Remodeling

Basement remodeling is a great way to increase the value of your home and add more living space, as well. Whether you're looking for a place to put the pool table you've always wanted or just a spot to keep cool on a hot summer day, basement remodels offer a versatile and attractive place that is well suited to many different purposes.

Benefits of Basement Remodels in Pittsburgh
Adding useable floor space to any home is generally a pretty good idea. Unfortunately, city dwellers don't often have the luxury of building up or out. In Pittsburgh, basement remodels are a cost-effective way to increase floor space without actually adding on to your house. Finishing a basement is a lot like adding an extra floor to your home. Though there may be obstacles like poorly positioned pipes or ductwork, these can often be moved and rerouted to create a wide-open space. Unlike in other areas of the house, you'll easily have the room to fit in whatever floats your particular boat.

A finished basement is not just useful while you are living in the house but can be a major selling point if you ever decide to sell, too. If you are thinking about basement remodeling, Pittsburgh residents should also consider that much (if not all) of the costs could actually be recouped when the property is sold. It can also decrease the amount of time the home is on the market.

Fans Love Finished Basements
Pittsburgh is home to some of the most devoted sports fans in the country (that's a fact; you can look it up). While there's no substitute for actually being there, many Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins fans have found that a properly set up entertainment center provides the next best thing. Since it's basically a clean slate, a finished basement makes an excellent place for a bar, a few couches, and, of course, the biggest TV you can find. Though it won't be Three Rivers (rest in peace), a basement remodel is still a wonderful place to watch a game.

Pittsburgh Basement Renovation Pricing and Duration
For basement remodeling, Pittsburgh prices are generally around $10,000, give or take. Those looking to really go the whole nine yards might spend $20,000 or more. While these figures might seem like a lot, when you compare this to what an addition to the structure of your home would cost (which can easily run double, triple, or more the cost of finishing a basement), prices for basement renovation in Pittsburgh are actually quite reasonable.

While most basement remodels can be finished in less than a month, certain conditions can make some jobs last much longer. One of the nice things about doing work on a basement, as opposed to other areas of the house, is that the bulk of the operation won't interfere with the normal goings-on of the household. Though some noise is to be expected, and inevitably, you'll notice the crew of people in and around your home, basement work shouldn't present near the obstacle of many other home improvements.

Know what you Want Beforehand
Though it's a big space, your basement will still have some boundaries. In fact, there are certain concerns that affect basements much more than other rooms of the house. Before you talk to a contractor, it's a good idea to have a definite vision of what you expect your remodel to be. Due to the particular limitations of a basement space, some features might be very difficult but possible with good planning. Making sure the contractor you choose knows what you want to get out of the space before the job begins will lead to the fastest, most efficient, and least expensive job possible for your situation.
