Is Finishing a Basement Worth the Money?

For nearly half a century, Sheffield Homes has been addressing the unique needs of Colorado home owners by transforming basements into well-loved living spaces. We understand the many questions that arise when considering embarking upon a basement finish, not least among them being, “Is it really worth the money?” If this concern has kept your finish plans at bay, read on.

Return on Investment

A finished basement can add value to your home—between 70%-75% of the initial cost. Unlike many other other investments that only pay off in the long-term, the living space you add to your home in the form of a finished basement pays dividends immediately as you start enjoying and living in the newly-added square footage. When it’s time to sell your home, the benefit of additional living space puts your home at the top of prospective buyers’ lists—especially when the basement was finished with care and craftsmanship. Prospective buyers love nothing more than to see one less project awaiting them after closing.

Value Beyond Calculation

A basement may be an underutilized area of your home, but with the right touches, it can become one of your most loved spaces. The immediate benefit is apparent: increased living space. Whether it’s an extra game room, personal gym, or guest suite, amplifying your home’s square footage makes for an enriched living experience that’s hard to quantify.

However, beyond the aesthetics, a finished basement with Sheffield Homes Finished Basements & More carries a distinct mark of craftsmanship and attention to detail that increases the value of your investment. We consistently strive to exceed expectations by creating beautifully finished basements that seamlessly integrate with the existing home aesthetic rather than appearing as a tacked-on afterthought. Additionally, we pledge to ensure the adherence to local codes and high standards of safety so your investment is not just beautiful, but also safe and secure.

Personalized Choices and Budget Considerations

We appreciate that each of our clients has unique tastes and budget considerations. With the guidance of our design professionals in our Design Center, we help you choose the most suitable finishes that do not compromise on quality or cohesiveness with your existing home décor. Additionally, we understand budgetary constraints. Our aim is not to sell you the most expensive options but to provide the best value for your money. We’ll show you how to make impactful choices that transform your basement without breaking the bank.

Peace of Mind and Clear Communication

We pride ourselves on our commitment to clear communication and efficient project management. Once a project begins, Sheffield utilizes an online construction management platform, CoConstruct. This resource, available both for desktop computer and mobile applications, enables clients to track project timelines and schedules, as well as to communicate with Sheffield staff. You have the reassurance of being involved and informed at each stage of the construction process, helping eliminate unwanted surprises.
