5 Reasons to Finish Your Basement
Posted by Jenna Martin

We have seen plenty of basements that serve as a concrete storage space, many of them filling up with clutter you forget is even there. We have never seen a customer with regrets after finishing their basement - it can benefit you in so many ways and change your life more than you think possible! Here are five reasons you should finish your basement ASAP.

 

1. IT ADDS ANOTHER FLOOR TO YOUR HOME  

You have probably gotten used to your basement the way it is. You know what corner the tubs of Christmas decorations and extra paint cans are in. You're content with the washer and dryer covered in cobwebs. You don't mind tripping over bags of donation clothes you keep forgetting to drop off. Now imagine your basement clean, new, organized and full of furniture and decor. Menold can turn it into another layer of your home to be proud of!

 

2. YOU CAN TRANSFORM IT INTO ANYTHING YOU WANT

Possibilities are endless. Create a home gym and save money from memberships. A man cave never disappoints. Maybe you're missing a guest bedroom in your house or need some extra space for a growing child. Whatever type of room you need, a finished basement can deliver anything - the possibilities are endless. 

 

3. YOUR HOME WILL BE MORE APPEALING

When guests come over, you probably skip the basement during the home tour. Never again! It's a great feeling to be proud of your basement. You can showcase your game room, laundry room with a tiled dog shower (yes, it's a thing), theater space, or built-in bar. If it's ever time to put your home on the market, many buyers are specifically looking for a finished basement. Check!

 

4. IT's A GOOD RETURN ON INVESTMENT

You can usually expect a 70%-75% recoup upon selling. So although you made the initial investment, you'll make a lot of that money back when you sell. You'll get so much use out of your newly finished area, it will completely be worth it!

 

5. IT ADDS COMFORT  

Most unfinished basements are cold and damp. After installing insulation, drywall and flooring, you will notice a complete change. In the summer months, the area stays cooler, and in the winter it will be warm. Since finished basements regulate temperatures, you are less likely to find mold, pests, and excess moisture.
