Basement Remodeling Guides

The basement remodeling guides found in this section of our complete remodeling site are the perfect place to start designing your basement remodeling project.  All the key aspects of basement remodeling are covered in the guides below.

Guides to Remodeling Cellars and Basements

Before starting any basement or cellar remodeling job you must completely check your home’s foundation to make sure it is waterproof and in good shape for the project.  The last thing you want to do is start construction around a crumbling and leaking basement wall. Our guides will help provide you with remodeling ideas for your basement flooring, basement ceilings and lighting, and insulating your basement and finishing the walls in your basement.  So whether you’re planning a home theater, bedroom suite, laundry facilities, game room, man cave, or something more upscale, you’ll have great ideas to get you started.

Our basement remodeling guides include approximate costs for each aspect of the project so you can begin to develop a budget. It is always a good idea to have some base prices and a basic plan before speaking with remodeling contractors to estimate the cost of your new room. Our remodeling guides will help you develop that plan and help you get the maximum benefit and enjoyment from your new basement.
