“I want to convert part of my basement to living space, but I’m scared of how much it will cost to finish my basement.” Does this sound familiar? Whether you're considering finishing a portion of your basement or converting the entire area into livable space, costs depend on the scale and scope of your project. With that being said, a basement is one of the least-expensive ways to gain extra living space. To get the most for your money in any basement finishing project, it’s important to select the right contractor.

When getting price estimates for basement finishing, it’s important to accurately compare what each contractor is offering. The lowest bids often go along with the lowest value. Here’s why: Contractors can keep prices down by using inexpensive materials to remodel your basement. Unfortunately, low-cost materials like wood studs, paper-faced drywall, plywood sheathing and fiberglass insulation don’t last long in a basement. Because they absorb moisture and contain organic materials, these off-the-shelf items are easily damaged by mold and rot, which makes your “new” basement smelly and unattractive. Tearing out and replacing moisture-damaged materials turns this “bargain” basement into the most expensive (and most aggravating) finishing option.
Here at Woods Basement Systems, Inc., we use high-performance materials designed to last under even the most challenging basement conditions. Instead of using organic, mold-friendly materials, all of our basement finishing products are inorganic and highly water resistant or waterproof. What’s more, the finished surfaces of our flooring, wall panels, and molding are highly stain-resistant and never require painting, refinishing or other maintenance. Doing the job once and doing it right, with maintenance-free, high-quality materials; that’s always the best value.
When you meet with one of our basement specialists, they will explain different options and make sure your questions & concerns are addressed.
No two basements are alike - they all have different layouts and obstacles like support beams, pipes, water heaters, and furnaces.
