Basement Finishing: Expert steps for a successful project.
Most homeowners tend to neglect or overlook the potential of their basement, using it only as an extra storage room. But many homes have basements that are fully capable of being converted into more livable and adaptable space. That adds additional square footage and can significantly enhance your quality of life and the marketability of your home.
Follow these steps to transform your basement:
We can generally set up an appointment within a day!
The first step in finishing your basement is to contact us. You will be greeted by a customer care representative who will arrange your free in-home consultation.
At your Home
The first priority of our first visit is to gain a full understanding of your needs for the space: how you will use your basement? How it should grow with you and your family into the future? Your basement designer will share our philosophy around how your basement should flow, basement design and our unique design/build experience! We want the space to be an additional level of your home–not “just a finished basement”. If we seem like a good match, then we’ll move to our design process!
At your Home : Your designer may measure your space during your first meeting. If not we will come back out at a mutually-convenient time to create the as-built of your space.
As Built: Your designer will spend an hour to two hours in the basement creating an exact “as-built” of the space. In our CAD system we replicate your exact basement layout, creating an exact computer drawing of where all structural and mechanical elements are in your basement. Then we go to work!
We bring ideas: Starting with the as-built, your basement design team will have worked out several plans which capture the smartest design for the space. This is when our years of experience really bears fruit. We will show you basement ideas that you’ve never considered! Be ready to roll up your sleeves in this creative meeting. You are an important part of the design team and by incorporating your feedback we will take the best elements to create the “one” space plan best for your needs. On the budget side, we will check in throughout the meeting to ensure that we are designing a space that meets your budget expectations.
3-D Renderings: Our 3-D rendering is a great help in visualizing how a space will look when completed. It will give you a sense of space and symmetry. The elevations of a space allow a vantage which is impossible on a blueprint. At this point your project really starts to become real.
In this meeting, we will review final construction drawings and the menu of pricing options. Within the construction drawings you will see all detailed elements of your project. Full elevations and construction notes are completed. Within the pricing menu you will see how and which design elements impact the cost of the project. In this meeting, we bring the design and budget together, select a construction start date for your project and sign construction contracts.
Construction starts: Construction of your space will take between 4 and 8 weeks depending upon the scope and complexity of your space. You will receive a detailed construction calendar and weekly updates throughout the project.
What to expect during construction:
- If working with your own designer was great, you’ll really love having your own project manager. Your project manager runs all aspects of construction. Closely teamed with your designer, the project manager will let you know exactly what will be happening everyday. They will give you a daily update and set up regularly scheduled meetings to check on critical design details.
- Your upstairs will have minimal impact. We go through great lengths to ensure maximum dust protection and minimal disruption in your upstairs living area.
- Your project will start and finish on time…guaranteed!
- Our crews are the best in the business. They are courteous and very respectful of you and your property.
- Daily job site clean-up. There is never a mess at the end of the day.
- With very few exceptions, there is significant work happening daily. You will truly be blown away daily when you go downstairs and see the work of that day.
You will hardly be calling it a basement—your new level of your home is now complete! Enjoy!!!
