Basement Lighting Installation

Choosing the right lighting is crucial to brightening up basement spaces that may not get enough natural light. It is best to add adequate lighting on dimmer switches to achieve this.  Recessed lighting is popular due to ceiling height restrictions in many lower-levels in homes. Our remodelers are highly qualified to suggest the right lighting for your project that will fit within your remodeling budget.

Basement Remodeling Cost Recovery

The benefits of improved living conditions in most home remodeling projects can be persuasive enough to consider the remodel a success, but what are the realistic amounts a homeowner can expect to see as household improvement when it comes time to sell the home?

According to a Madison, WI -area 2007 cost-vs-value report by Hanley Wood, you can recover approximately 69.6 percent of your investment at resale for basement remodeling. This is a significant portion of the remodeling addition expenses and may even set your home apart from others when it comes time to sell.

Construction Tips

Compare Apples to Apples in Construction Quotes

When getting quotes for a construction or remodeling project, make sure you are comparing apples to apples. Ask all potential contractors to quote your remodeling project using the same construction materials as other contractors who are quoting. Not all building materials are the same - and some contractors use inferior products to slip in with the lowest bid.
--Get all remodeling contractors to create their quotes using specified construction materials

Ask for photos of past construction work

Ask potential contractors for images of completed construction or remodeling projects that you can see. Don't be afraid to ask to speak to past references. If it's possible, visit a complete remodeling or construction site where you can see the quality and craftsmanship first hand.
