Let our experienced contractors create a beautiful, long-lasting, waterproof design for your Illinois & Missouri basement.
For basements under 1,ooo square feet the average cost per square foot increases if you have a bathroom in the design. Recent examples I have seen include, a 800 square foot basement with bath room, recreation room, and two bedrooms with basic professional finish, $38,300.00 (from a lower priced company). If you count on $3700 for every 100 square feet finished you will have a good idea.
Elastomeric sealant for example can be used to fill and patch minor cracks and flaws. Self levelling compound can be used to fill in low spots on the basement floorA concrete sander can be used to reduce high spotsTile backer board (made from fiber-reinforced gypsum or cement) can be glued to the floor to act as a sub-floor. This will help to level the surface.

A recent kitchen renovation project inspires new woodshop storage ideas for my garage: recycle the old kitchen cabinets into new storage space. I also like the idea of reusing as much salvaged material as possible to reduce landfill many remodeling jobs, the old kitchen cabinets do not retain any cash value and to the contractor, they are not worth the time and effort to save. All too often, the contractor rips out the old kitchen cabinets to make room for the new cabinets. Rather than removing the cabinets carefully for resale or donation, the old cabinets are broken down and tossed aside. Deemed worthless, the old cabinets are doomed to the dumpster and destined for the landfill.
