Busted! Don’t Believe These Myths About Basement Renovation!
There’s no denying that you need to focus on your rooms aboveground. However, you can’t ignore the potential a basement has. If you treat it like any other room, it may become the best spot in your dream home. If you’re planning to renovate your basement, we believe that it’s a great idea!
Nevertheless, while doing so, you need to keep in mind that there are certain aspects to consider. For instance, every town has its own rules when it comes to renovating a basement and abiding by regulations is your duty.
There are also several myths about basement renovation that people fall for resulting in costly mistakes. As experienced professionals, we want to help you avoid falling prey to these myths and enjoy the experience of giving your basement a makeover. To help you do this, Affordable Basement Renovations has debunked two of the most widely believed myths about basement renovation.
Myth 1: I don’t need a permit.
People think you do not need a permit, and that it’s just a tax grab for the city and a waste of time and money. This is far from the truth! Even though the city is not liable for any work done, it is imperative you get a permit. They will make sure things are finished to code plus if you want to sell your home, you will have a tough time without a permitted basement.
Myth 2: Cost for a standard basement suggested by any company is always right.
If people tell you they can fully develop a basement including a bathroom for under $20,000.00, you need to research this company. Typically, a seven hundred square feet basement with bathroom, bedroom and media room, would run you around $35,000.00.
