Finishing your basement

The Benefits of Finishing Your Basement

With plenty of inspiration out there for ideas on creating the perfect finished basement, you may be considering this renovation for your home. But as a homeowner, you may also be wondering about the benefits of finishing your basement. And the good news is, there are actually quite a few! 

And at Ascension General Contractors, we are here to share all of the important benefits you should know when it comes to finishing your basement. 


More Space

Most homeowners would agree that adding or maximizing space is an important goal for their homes, and on average, basements add at least a third of space to your home. Basements are also very versatile and can be used as a family room, home office, guest room, in-home gym, and more!

Better Organization

Basements are often filled with all kinds of things to keep them out of your way. By finishing your basement, you create the opportunity for better organization within your home with the option to add closets or shelving that will help properly store any clutter you’ve accumulated over time. Resulting in even more storage in your newly renovated and organized living space!

Lower Energy Costs

An unfinished basement usually doesn’t have proper insulation. This means that it’s very likely to increase your energy bills. But with good insulation, a finished basement creates a stable environment and can definitely save you money over time. 

Great ROI

Because a finished basement adds extra living space to your home, it also increases your home’s value. There is also a large demand for finished basements from home buyers. So if selling your home is a possibility in the future, a finished basement is a great opportunity for making the most of your investment.
