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.

This book covers everything from assessing your current basement, planning and the actual work. I’m just a regular home-owner handyman (non-professional) and I feel like I’m ready to tackle the project. One thing that was especially helpful was the Pro Tips. On almost all the pages, there’s a tip that you may or may not have thought about. For the work, it goes over the basic steps to accomplishing the project (i.e. electrical, plumbing, drywall). If you have a decent amount of handyman inside you, this book will definitely enable you to finish or remodel a basement.
