Process & Cost

What is the procedure?
We will come out to your home and discuss your plan, or, if you don’t have one, we will talk about what you will be using your basement for, your ideas, what you envision, your budgetary concerns, and offer suggestions that 20 years and 500+ projects of experience can give, and then do a rough sketch of your basement layout and take measurements. We will then take that back to our office and input it into our computer system. This allows us to get an exact dollar figure for your project.

If you don’t have a plan and would like for us to design the space, a minimal charge of $300.00 is required. This will be credited back to the cost of the project should you decide to use us. If not, the plan will be available on our website for you to access, 24/7, for 30 days.

How much will my project cost?

A typical build out cost is around $40.00 per square foot, assuming you have a clean slate to work with. That cost is based on roughly 1,000 square feet of finished space.

It includes framing outside concrete exposed walls, electrical with sub-panel, 12 recessed lights, HVAC, bathroom with a 1-piece fiberglass tub and shower unit, insulate the exterior walls, sheetrock walls and ceilings, basic trim, quality Sherwin Williams paint, floor tile in the bathroom & carpet throughout. And, it would be a turn-key project with liberal allowances for plumbing fixtures, vanity, lighting and flooring, etc.

Therefore, the base price of a 1,000 sq ft basement would cost around $40,000.00. Anything else; moving walls and installing beams, cabinetry for a bar, kitchen or bookcases, hardwoods, stone work, etc, would naturally add to the cost.

If this all sounds reasonable to you, then fill out the contact form or give us a call at 770.339.4936 and we will set up a time to get you started towards your beautiful new basement!
