Understanding the pricing and process of finishing out a basement can be a little complicated, therefore, as the homeowner it's a good idea to know what it is you are wanting to accomplish with your finished basement and what your budget is. Some ideas may include bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, workout room, home theater, or family room etc. Mark also brings his knowledge and skill to every project, taking basement ideas to a level you never thought possible.

Pricing Break Down:

  • Our pricing is based on a standard basement project which includes all labor and construction costs such as framing, drywall, trim, doors, HVAC, plumbing, insulation, electrical, recessed lights and basic fixtures.

    Based on our past experiences - we have found that most basement finishing projects will fall into the price range of about $25 to $33 per square foot, depending on the size of your basement (the larger the basement the lower the cost per square foot) for a 100% completed project for a standard basement build out price.
  • Price range for a custom basement build out price if about $33 to $40 per square foot.
  • Added to that price would be what we call allowances: the homeowner controls this cost. 
  • For example: If you are adding a full kitchen to your basement, you would control the cost for the cabinets, countertops, appliances, etc.

 

Therefore, our basement quote would consist of a total build-out price plus the allowances (which the customer controls). 

Comparing Estimates:

We have been in busniess since 1995, and we have a very good idea of what a project will cost and how long it will take to complete. We encourage our customers to get at least two other bids. Homeowners need to know that the quality of work will be different from company to company, because this work is done by people, some more skilled than others. Also know that there is always a reason for unusually low bids, so it's best to check references, ours included, and ask them for their experience in dealing with a particular contractor. Make sure you hire a Ga Licensed Contractor and never-ever give a contractor money up front. We will only ask for a draw after each phase of completion as broken down in the contract.
