How the renovation process works


Basements are often forgotten spaces in the home, and that's a shame. It’s important to understand what you can do with your basement space, as well as how much it will cost to renovate it into something functional and beautiful.

There are many ways to turn an unused basement into a functional living area for the whole family. For example, adding a laundry room, home office, or extra bathroom may be just what you need.

If you want additional bedroom or playroom options, consider converting part of the basement into usable space by installing drywall and flooring in these areas. You can also add insulation for soundproofing purposes if desired.

The best way to get started on remodeling your basement is by speaking with us about your ideas - whether it’s creating more storage or turning it into a finished basement.

Is your basement suitable for conversion?

To finish a basement, the entire level needs to be complete and as charming as the other living areas of your house. This usually includes an electrical system, plumbing, and plumbing fixtures, heat, cooling, finished flooring, an accessible entrance/stairway, and finished walls. If there is a bedroom in this area then it should have closet space and an egress window for that room to count as a bedroom.

Before you go any further with your basement conversion, here's a quick list of what you'll need to consider:

  • Is there enough available space?
  • Is the minimum ceiling height enough?
  • Do you need to add or reposition walls?
  • Is the basement dry?
  • Is the basement properly wired for lighting and appliances?
  • Does the basement require plumbing upgrades?
  • Is it properly heated and isolated?
  • Does it require an air conditioning or cooling system?

At Arber Construction, we can help you address these questions and then come up with cost-saving improvement solutions. Taking your ideas into consideration, we can convert that dark and cold space into a spacious laundry room, fully functional bathroom, or even an income-generating apartment.
