Basement Finishing for Northeast Wisconsin Homeowners

Finishing your basement is a great way to add more livable space to your home without the hassle and expense of an addition! Whether you’re looking to turn an unfinished basement into a comfortable living or entertaining space or you want to completely transform your basement into a more functional, enjoyable part of your home, we’re the residential construction general contractors you want on the project!

Your basement doesn’t need to be that dark, damp space that you rarely visit. Turn that unused area of your home into a fully-functional space that’s great for entertaining friends, spending time together as a family, working from home, or whatever best suits your lifestyle.

What Does It Cost to Finish a Basement in Wisconsin?

The cost to finish a custom basement is heavily dependent on the scope of the project, but a fraction of the cost it would be to do an addition! The price varies depending on materials, labor requirements, square footage, and more. Some questions to think about when considering a basement finishing project include:

  • How are you planning to use the finished basement space?
    • Are you adding new basement walls and flooring to make a dream kids’ playroom? Or a new rec room to relax in as a family?
    • Are you looking to add basement bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate guests or a growing family?
    • Are you looking to create the ultimate man-cave, wine cellar, in-home movie theater, craft room, or home office?
  • Will any plumbing features need to be added?
    • Are you adding a full wet bar for entertaining?
    • Are you adding a whole new bathroom (a powder room or a full-size bathroom)?

All of these things are important to remember when you’re just starting to conceptualize or budget for your basement renovation. The more complex you want to get with adding electrical, plumbing, and other features, the higher the cost. It’s important to think of your long-term goals for what you want out of your home in the future, whether it’s accommodating more guests, raising a family, or just having a special place to unwind. Also, keep in mind, a fully-functional finished basement will improve the resale value of your home.
