Basements Increase A Home’s Value

When families need more storage in their homes and extra space, many of them look downstairs for a solution…all the way downstairs into the basement. A basement remodel offers unlimited options for creating more living space in your home. Commonly thought of as a place for a game room, basements are now becoming so much more:

  • in-law suites
  • home offices
  • craft rooms
  • guest bedrooms
  • second kitchens
  • family rooms
  • “man caves”

If you’re considering transforming your basement into additional living quarters, be sure to address potential moisture and water issues before spending any time and money on remodeling work. Cracks in foundation, poor ventilation, and humidity can wreak havoc on a basement.

TIP: To find out if there’s a problem inside, go outside. Check your exterior walls for moisture problems, look for cracks in the foundation, clean out all of the downspouts and window wells (debris traps in moisture which can be drawn into the basement), and make sure the ground is sloped away from the house, preventing water from running into your foundation walls.

Finishing your basement not only makes better use out of your home’s square footage, the increased living space adds value to your home. This gives you an advantage over nearby homes built on a slab, or with just crawl spaces, or with an unfinished basement.

Since we were so impressed with the service, installation and quality of our sliding door some years ago, we knew we wanted to contact Choice again when we were ready to remodel our kitchen.The entire team at Choice genuinely cared about our project as if it was their own home. Multiple staff members checked in on us during the temporary business shutdown due to COVID-19 which occurred mid-project.It was a pleasure working with Choice and we are very pleased with the results. They made our satisfaction a priority, and we are grateful for the relationships that were built along the way.

Top tier service from Doug, Jason, and Barry. Lonnie in the service department is a respectable guy also.
