3 Reasons Why You Should Finish Your Basement

by | Last updated Jun 4, 2019 | Published on Oct 30, 2018 | Basement

Space is everything when it comes to our living quarters. Many times, homeowners don’t consider their basement to be one of those space maximizing locations, leaving it dark, unfinished, and full of unpacked boxes. Finishing your basement is a great way to add usable space to your home without pursuing an unbearably costly addition.

Here are 3 reasons why you should consider finishing your basement today:

  1. Energy Efficiency

Insulating your basement during a remodel or finishing project will drastically reduce your home’s energy bills due to unmanaged drafts. Though your attic is insulated to withstand temperature extremes, most basements don’t come with this kind of protection. Whether it’s air sealing or insulation, we can get your basement energy efficient in no time.

  1. Home Value

Even if you’re not considering selling your home in the next few years, improving your home value for when you finally do is a worthy investment. Finishing your basement is a quick and easy way to add on usable space when a new family is surveying your home. Well worth the investment, a basement renovation will enable you to increase your asking price much more than the actual cost of finishing itself.

  1. Space

Probably the most convincing reason to finish a basement, space is something every couple and family needs, but doesn’t always have. If you’re someone on a budget and unable to consider a costly home addition that could take half a year, you should consider finishing your basement. Already structured and available to you, your basement is part of your home and waiting to be renovated.

As always, if you have any questions or are interested in a basement finishing assessment, here at Alliance Renovations in Calgary, we’re happy to help.
