How long does it take to finish a basement?
While each basement finishing can present challenges that impact the project’s time frame, we notice an average of 8 to 12 weeks to have your basement finished. City permits, supply chain, and customization are the main time-consuming factors when accomplishing a project.
How much does it cost to finish a basement?
We base the Basement finishing costs on the size of the basement and finishing selections. While (as of 2022) basic basement finishings can range from $45-$55 per square foot, high-end basement finishing can go higher than $100 per square foot. A basic basement usually consists of:
- An LVP on the bathroom floor;
- One or two tones of paint;
- A fiberglass insert for the shower;
- A small vanity;
- A low or mid-end carpet throughout;
Standard upgrades and picks that can increase price are tiles, can or recessed light, and extra tones for painting.
You can use our Calculator tool to get a ballpark on your basement project’s cost.
How to know if my basement contractor is installing good-quality items?
To assure our clients they are provided with quality items, we declare allowance on every item that can cause miss communication during the project. For anything with different options on the market, we declare a maximum allowance for that product, giving freedom for the client to pick from a range of options within the price range established in the contract.
How do I make payments for my remodeling or basement finishing project?
Usually, payments are made via check, and if the contract contains the payment plan, being the most common, a 40-50% down payment covers about half of the project. Once we accomplish half of the project, the second check will cover about 25-35%, then on mileage 75%; we get a third check of about 20%, leaving about 5% of the remodeling project amount to be paid after we complete the project.
