Boston Heights Basement Finishing

Basement Refinishing is a difficult project for many Boston Heights homeowners. And even though a finished basement can provide them with additional living space at a fraction of the cost, the work and financial commitment are daunting for them. On the other hand, they know that adding a 20×20 family room to their home will cost them an average of $50,000.  Then, refinishing the basement becomes a better option for many Boston Heights residents.

A refinished basement can give you the additional space you want and need. With a finished basement, you have many options. You can use it as a family room, office, TV room, bedroom, or a child’s playroom. A refinished basement can become another finished floor in the home and quite possibly a favorite floor for the whole family.

Get Your Boston Heights Basement Finished The Right Way

Pioneer Basement Finishing will conduct a thorough inspection of your basement before they begin refinishing it. To ensure that there are no foundation problems or water damage, they will inspect your home’s foundation. They will check the basement walls for signs of water damage or moisture accumulation. Their teams will inspect the basement walls for cracks or wall bowing. They will inspect the basement for water seepage through cracks, weak mortar joints, or subfloor. They will inspect the home for any problems coming from the outside before they begin the work inside.

But, wait. Where is the water coming from?

Water can come into the home from three main areas: the walls, the seam between the floor and the wall, and the subfloor. For many Boston Heights homeowners, water seepage is a big problem that can get worse pretty quickly.

The main waterproofing system for the home is installed during construction. It includes a sealant applied to the wall and a drain located at the base of the foundation. Basement leaks can occur after many years or when the sealant has worn off. In some cases, water seepage can be quite common. Also, the foundation drainage system may not be functioning properly. In other words, water in the basements can result from a combination of these two problems.

Any Boston Heights homeowner who plans to finish their basement must make sure it is waterproofed first.

Use Only The Best Materials

Basement waterproofing problems are common in Boston Heights, Ohio. Many of these waterproofing issues are age-related. But, the wear and tear these beautiful homes experience are because of the inclement weather in the Northeast Ohio region.

In some instances, we have found that basement water leaks are caused by poor construction materials. Regrettably, many homeowners do not know this till they are faced with a problem.

Pioneer Basement Solutions and Finishing uses only the finest waterproofing materials to finish the basement of your home. We use the most up-to-date products and technologies to ensure a waterproof basement that will last for many years. We will protect your home from future mold and moisture accumulation. We will use foam board insulation instead of fiberglass. Why? Because foam board insulation is superior to fiberglass, and also acts as a barrier to condensation. We will use metal stud framing because it is an ideal choice for basement finishing. Metal studs won’t rot, grow mold, or mildew.

Modular finishing systems are popular among contractors. These systems will use multiple trim pieces that are joined at the seams. The result is a more mobile home-like or office wall system. Pioneer uses materials that blend seamlessly into the rest of your house.

How much does it cost to refinish the basement of my Boston Heights home?

When it comes to figuring out the cost of a project, you have to include many factors. The cost of finishing a basement in your home will vary depending on where you live, what materials you choose, and whether there are any companies available to help you. If you Google the price of refinishing the basement of your home, Google will give you different prices depending upon where you live, and the square footage. Prices can vary from $25 to $50 per square foot up to $90 per square foot. The cost of refinishing the basement of your Boston Heights home will vary depending on how much square footage you have, what materials you use, and labor costs.

If you have talked to different companies about this project, you might be asking, why are prices so different? Prices can vary for many reasons.

  1. Not all companies charge the same for labor costs
  2. One company might use better materials
  3. A company might not include everything in their quote

 A price can be higher depending on the types of materials the homeowner chooses as well. Flooring, lighting, and ceiling options can be quite expensive. There will be an increase in cost if you opt to have a drywall ceiling installed instead of drop tiles. Drop tile ceilings can be more costly, but they are often preferred by many homeowners in Boston Heights, Ohio. Why?  Because drop tile is better than Drywall. Drop tiles come pre-finished so you don’t have to tap, mud or sand. The installation of a drop tile ceiling will be quicker and easier. 

The price of a finished basement can change if you want a bar or bathroom installed. These rooms come in many styles and budgets, so it is possible to get a different price with different companies. Remember that the basement will cost more to refinish the more rooms you have. The number of trims, lights, and ceiling material needed will cost more because you will need more.

Also, consider the additional cost of installing an egress window in your basement as a true investment. An egress window can add value, safety, and maximize the natural light from the outside. An egress window can be used to make the basement footage more marketable. 

Before making a decision, it is important to discuss your Boston Heights basement options with Pioneer Basement Finishing. It is also important to have a budget done and stick to it when you talk to a basement finishing company.
