Create A Cozy Living Space In Your Basement

    One of METZ Remodeling & Home Improvement's specialties is finishing cramped, cold, and damp basements by converting them into full bedroom and baths, or even full featured efficiency apartments. We were able to relocate duct work, wiring and plumbing on the addition pictured below adding 6 inches to the overall height of the room. A basement addition like this one will typically add a value to the house equal to 3 times the money spent to build it.
    These beautifully remodeled areas can become the primary recreational room for the entire family, your teen's own private living space, or they can be engineered to accommodate a disabled live-in parent.

    Basements are almost always at least partially buried underground. Because of this, moisture has to be considered during every step of the remodel. METZ Remodeling & Home Improvement will usually recommend sealing the floor before covering it with carpet or hardwoods. Care also has to be taken on foundation walls that have shown water damage in the past. We typically seal the bottom 4 feet of the foundation with a waterproofing product like Drylok before installing a finished wall like sheetrock.
