Living on Long Island and owning a home can be a very gratifying experience. Home owners enjoy the increased values of their homes and the good quality of life Long Island has to offer. There comes a time when some home owners end up needing more space. They should consider remodeling their basement. Finished basements add value and usability to your home.
Remodeling or finishing your basement is a great way to add living space to your home. It’s cost effective and takes much less time than expanding your home’s foot print or dormering. It’s less expensive and less intrusive to finish a basement than it is to expand.
A finished basement can be made to look just like a regularly constructed home. With the addition of an outside entrance and big egress windows natural light can enter the space allowing for an open feeling. Usually basement ceilings are built using a grid system but that doesn’t have to be the case. Sheetrock ceilings can be built to further enhance the real room feel.
