Loc P. says, "I worked with Darwin from Chanelle Construction on a complete remodel of a new home purchase that needed a lot of work. Darwin and Patsy met with me to check out the property, discuss what I wanted to be done in the remodeling and provided quick and affordable estimate of the work. This includes everything from flooring (I chose tile), drywall, painting (inside & out), shower bathroom tiling, installing doors, and other details. The project was completed before the estimated date and I was very satisfied with their work, both in timelines and quality of craftsmanship. It was really easy to work with them and they even helped me pick up tile from Floor & Decor since I bought a lot and didn't have a truck. I have recommended them to others that I know for work and everyone has provided me great feedback. " Read more

Your Basement Remodeling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to remodel a basement?

An average basement remodel costs $25 to $65 per square foot or $12,500 to $37,500 total with labor, depending on the size and scope of the project. Common basement remodeling jobs include:

  • Adding or upgrading a bathroom
  • Turning an unused space into a bedroom
  • Adding a home theater room
  • Adding a basement kitchen

How much value does a basement remodel add?

Remodeling a basement has a 65% to 70% return on investment (ROI). The exact value a basement remodel has will depend on the changes made and the square footage.

When selling a home, the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) separates the above ground square footage from below grade square footage. Above ground spaces are worth about twice as much as lower-level rooms.

How long does a basement remodel take?

A basement remodel takes 3 to 8 weeks on average, depending on the size and changes made. The following factors may increase the project timeline:

  • Materials on backorder
  • Demolition
  • Structural changes
  • Mold or water damage mitigation

What’s the difference between remodeling, renovating & finishing a basement?

Some use the terms remodeling, renovation, and finishing interchangeably, but they're technically different from each other:

  • Remodeling means to change a room's appearance or function. Common remodeling jobs include adding rooms or walls.
  • Renovating means to restore a space to its original condition, not changing structures or adding rooms.
  • Finishing a basement means converting it from bare concrete to a livable space with walls, windows, and floors. 

Do you need a permit to remodel a basement?

Yes, you need a permit to remodel a basement. Building permits cost $500 to $2,000 when structural changes are involved. Permits make sure your changes are done properly and up to code. Remodeling without a permit is risky and can negatively impact your home's resale value.

How do I hire a basement remodeling contractor?

First, search our list of basement contractors, then:

  • Compare multiple estimates from companies with 5+ years of experience.
  • Browse reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Confirm that they're licensed, insured, and bonded.
  • Beware of the lowest quotes, which can result in low-quality work.
  • Ask for a written estimate and contract before work starts.
  • Only make the final payment after the project is completed.

What questions should I ask basement remodeling contractors?

Ask these questions to help find the best basement contractor:

  • How much experience do you have with remodeling basements?
  • Can I see pictures of past remodeling projects?
  • How long will this job take?
  • Do you offer a warranty for your work?
  • Does your estimate include materials, labor, and cleanup?
  • Will you hire any subcontractors?
  • What unexpected costs can come up for this kind of project?
  • Will you handle any necessary building permits?
