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 $65,000 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?
