Remodeling Your Basement
For busy families, especially in the age of remote work and virtual schooling, finished basements are more popular than ever.
Not only are they one of the most cost-effective remodeling projects, they’re also one of the most versatile. Just a few of the possibilities are:
- A cozy, downstairs living room where your kids can spread out toys, or your teens can host movie nights
- A quiet, inviting space where you can stay focused and be productive in your home office
- A spacious, dedicated fitness area where you can work out in the privacy of your own home, even in the cold months of winter
- A comfortable, spacious guest suite for relatives and loved ones to enjoy during extended visits
From utilitarian game rooms to fully finished guest suites, finished basements bring value at each end of the spectrum.
How will a finished basement enrich your life at home?
"We recently contracted with McLennan and team to refinish our basement (adding an extra bedroom, home office, full bathroom, and living area) and could not have been more pleased. The level of integrity and professional work provided by Tim, Ryan, Marsha and team, delivered a finished product that exceeded our expectation. Strongly recommend them to anyone wanting a high quality/high value result."

What Goes Into Finishing a Basement?
For as diverse as finished basements can be, there are certain elements they all have in common.
Transforming a dark, dingy basement into a warm, bright space requires special attention to your home’s inner workings. A quality finished basement design takes into account moisture control, utilities access, egress requirements, and a host of other technical considerations.
