Quick Tips from Smart Reno Express for Your Basement Renovation

First, you should decide what you want out of your basement renovation. When the basement finishing project is completed, what do you want to use the rooms for? If you want an additional living space, your design should include living-room-like features.

Second, you can potentially save money by combining your basement project with a kitchen renovation or bathroom renovations.

How Much Do Basement Renovations Cost?

The cost of a basement renovation will depend entirely on the renovation services that you need. For accurate estimates, please request a free quote here at Smart Reno Express. If you're looking for a rough estimate, expect similar price ranges to those that follow:

Framing $1 / square foot
Flooring
  • Floating and vinyl: $1.50 to $1.75 / square foot
  • Hardwood: $2 to $4 / square foot
  • Tiles: $4 to $6 / square foot
Drywall $1.50 / square foot
Ceiling $3.50 / square foot
Sub-total of Materials $7.50 / square foot
Labour $10-15 / square foot

You certainly want a great basement, but you have to define what that means. Basic basement finishing, such as painting the walls, can be cheap, but a complete finished basement can cost anywhere between $15-$25 per square foot.

How to Keep Costs Low on Your Basement Renovation Project

You can keep your basement finishing costs low by, first, getting free estimates and comparing prices amongst competing contractors. If your basement renovations are focused on creating an additional living space, then you should spend on exactly the things you need for that living space, and leave any extras out of the project; be wary of the common "while we're at it" syndrome.

Additionally, consider that you are adding value to your home, and will earn up to an industry average of 70% return on investment.

Anything that you can do to facilitate the job for your contractors will also go a long way toward reducing your estimate. For instance, any amount of demo and clean-up you can DIY in anticipation of the professionals' arrival can simplify and cheapen your renovation project greatly. However, be cognizant of your limitations, and avoid playing with plumbing and electrical if those aren't your forte.

Basement Renovation Pitfalls to Avoid

As with any home renovation project, you should work with a contractor you trust on your basement renovation. You do not want to work with someone who is going to ignore your basement finishing or basement design plans or, worse, leave you with an unfinished basement. Smart Reno Express can help you find the right professional for your specific job.
