When to Consider Remodeling Your Basement
If your home has an unfinished or unusable basement, it’s a good time to think about remodeling. A finished basement can not only increase your usable living space, but it can also increase the value of your home.

- The basement smells musty or there are signs of mildew/mold
- The basement contains safety hazards, such as unsafe stairwells or exposed electrical wiring
