What Does a Basement Renovation Cost?

If you’re planning on getting a basement renovation in the near future, you’re likely uncertain about how much the project will cost and if you’ll be able to stay within your budget. Basement renovations can require a lot of different materials and work, which can result in many cost variations. It’s important to know exactly how much you’ll need to spend prior to getting started on the basement remodel.

Costs of basement remodel can also vary based on the company you turn to for your basement renovations. CMH Builders works to maintain cost-effectiveness for each project, and will inform you of the final cost prior to beginning a project. Certain other companies may surprise you with hidden fees and other undisclosed extra costs, leaving you over-budget and dissatisfied.

What Should a Basement Renovation Cost?

Generally, simpler basement finishes such as basic do-it-yourself makeovers with additional wall framing, decor, furnishings, and moisture control can result in a final basement renovation cost of $10,000 to $27,000. The price usually piles on from there based on how much work is needed.

If your basement renovation entails the installation of new plumbing and electrical work, or entire HVAC systems, it’s best to leave this to contractors for professional and efficient service. These basement renovations will typically cost at least $65,000.

The cost of a complete basement renovation may seem expensive to some, but the benefits of a remodeled basement can make the project worth the final price. There are many unique additions that you can get for your basement from CMH Builders, including recreational items such as pool tables, and elements that can transform the basement into a great gathering space, including custom bars.

How to Finance a Basement Renovation

Years ago, financing a remodeling project in the home required a visit to the bank, speaking with a loan officer, and hoping you wound up with a high-quality project that justified the cost. However, there are more options available to homeowners today if they would like to finance a basement remodeling project or other renovation.

You can turn to a mortgage broker, who can offer over 200 different loan programs, for instance. There are also many lenders, loan options, and terms that can make it challenging to choose the best method for financing.

The key to successfully financing your basement renovation is to know how much money you need to spend and how much you can receive from the start. Then you should narrow all of the available loan options down to the ones that meet your needs. Following this step, you should focus on the lenders that are most likely to provide you with the loan you want.

Before getting a loan to finance a basement renovation, you can speak with contractors like CMH Builders to get an accurate project estimate of the final basement finishing cost. This is necessary to determine exactly how much you should borrow, and a reputable lender won’t work with you without a specific figure, regardless. Consider adding more in the event of unexpected surprises, with an add-on of 10 percent plus a potential cushion of 20 to 30 percent to further avoid issues if they come up.
