So many of us are looking to maximize the space that we already have in our homes, but with kids, pets or a partner who may be exhibiting hoarding tendencies, finding the space you need can be more than difficult! This feeling of frustration often sends us down to the basement where there is a blank canvas and place for basement renovations to open up some useable space! As with any home improvement project, you might be deciding on the DIY route or the professional route. Let’s explore whether your basement renovations should be DIY or don’t try this at home!
If you are thinking of going the DIY route for your basement renovations, there are many things you will have to think about. Are you really going to have time to devote to your basement renovations? A team or crew of workers can have a basement finished from studs to drywall and carpeting in about a week or two, depending on the space. Without a helpful crew of your own, you could be looking at a month or two of evening and weekend work. Additionally, are you able to take on many of the tasks that basement renovations require such as wiring, electrical, plumbing, carpeting, finishing, etc.? These tasks aren’t just important to the basement renovation, but to the safety of the rest of your home!
If you are thinking of hiring a contractor for your basement renovations, you might want to think about your choice in contractors. Hiring a great contractor can ensure your basement renovations are well-done and in an efficient manner.
