Why Do You Need a Professional Basement Remodeling Company?

Why Do You Need a Professional Basement Remodeling Company?We’ve all done it. We’ve seen the captivating sauna on Houzz, the glitzy powder room makeover on Pinterest, and the beautiful five-star fudge cupcakes on Instagram and thought, “How hard could it be?” It’s easy to forget that people who are really talented at what they do make what they do look really easy to do. Sadly, whether we’re talking construction or baking projects, they’re seldom as effortless as we were led to believe.

If you’re considering tackling a basement finish on your own–thinking to save money by not hiring a licensed professional for the job–you may thank yourself to take a beat and think twice before making a final decision. As Benjamin Franklin said, “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten,” and he never even tried to make anything he found on Pinterest!

Why Do You Need a Professional Basement Remodeling Company?

Why Do You Need a Professional Basement Remodeling Company?DIY projects certainly have their place, but generally speaking, hiring a professional for a project as big in scope as a basement finish pays off in the long run. Consider this (by all means non-exhaustive) list of Pros:

  1. Knowledge and Experience – Basement finishing comes with its unique set of complications and probable hiccups. Hiring a company that has years of experience dealing with such issues–be they related to moisture prevention, building code adherence, or framing around existing HVAC lines–to name a few, makes sense if you want the end product to look and feel professional.
  2. Proper Licenses and Building Permits – It’s easy to think that this one doesn’t matter and isn’t worth the cost, but proper permitting is always the right way to go. A licensed contractor knows which permit is required and how to obtain it. Furthermore, a licensed contractor will coordinate required municipal inspections throughout the course of your project, ensuring that your basement is safely built to-code.
  3. Why Do You Need a Professional Basement Remodeling Company?Quicker Renovation Time – Hiring a company whose full-time job is to work on your basement will almost certainly result in a timelier project turnaround than if you’re managing it yourself after work and on weekends. Managing and scheduling trades is a full-time job in and of itself; leaving this work in the hands of a company that already has established relationships with trusted and reliable trades just makes sense.
  4. Quality Investment – When you hire a reliable contractor to finish your basement, you’re making an investment in both quality and sanity. You can still be part of the decision-making and design process, but will rest assured that construction details are well managed.
  5. Better Deal on Materials – Most contractors buy materials from trade suppliers at wholesale cost. Often, these materials are of higher quality than similar items found at a big-box store.
  6. Warranties and Guarantees – Contractors and the trades who work with them typically guarantee their work for a period of time. If something goes wrong, you have someone to call.
  7. Safety with Plumbing and Electricity – Plumbing and electrical work are two areas where you don’t want to skimp on non-licensed work, as your safety and well-being are at stake. A professional contractor will always use bonded, licensed electricians and plumbers on your job.
