Lower level remodel services that add space and value to the home
Need extra space for entertaining? Maybe you want another room for a growing family? A lower level remodel is the perfect solution. It’s cost effective because you’re not building out, you’re just taking an existing space and modifying it to your needs. And those needs might evolve over time. What begins as a project to transform a space into a comfortable and safe room for toddlers can one day become a study for an adult.
An added perk is that you’re also adding more value to your home. It’s what many real estate agents refer to as curb appeal you can’t see from the curb. A nicely finished basement is certainly an added bonus for people who put their house on the market.
Remodeling magazine said in its annual “Cost vs. Value” report that the average basement remodel has a 70.3 percent payback, making it among the most valuable remodeling projects to tackle.
Finished basement walls, floors, ceilings and more
Many lower levels show signs of water or moisture, which needs to be resolved before the space is transformed. This could include cracks in the foundation or poor air circulation and bad drainage. There is also insulation and lighting considerations to consider as many basements aren’t properly insulated or wired for lighting or appliances, which can result in a less-than-optimal situation when the space is being used regularly.
At New Concept 180, we can address these issues and then get on with finishing your basement walls, floors and ceilings. We can take a basement that was more aligned with a cold, dark unusable space and transform it into a warm space with insulated walls, finished ceilings, tiled, carpeted or wood-planked flooring, and plumbing upgrades for a new bathroom, utility room or wet bar – you name it, we’ll design and build it.

Take the right steps when designing your new basement project
If the process of designing your new basement intimidates you, you’ve got something in common with many others who have tackled or are in the process of tackling the same type of project. Take the first step in taking control of the situation by getting a better view of your space. For example, if your basement is cluttered with years of stuff you really don’t need, clear it out so you can get a better grip on what your basement can become.
Does your basement require heating and cooling ducts? Perhaps you will need more outlets for your entertainment equipment or added plumbing for a bathroom – these are all important aspects of the remodel you’ll need to discuss with your designer. Start by knowing how you’re going to use your basement and think into the future about what it might become. The designers at New Concept 180 can help you plan for what you see your basement being used for now and in the future.
