Basement Finishing Benefits

Grand Rapids Basement Finishing Company

Michigan's Trusted Basement Finishing Company. With Ayers, your unfinished basement can be whatever you want it to be!

  • Eliminate Basement Moisture: Below-grade spaces are vulnerable to moisture and mold. Finishing a basement often includes waterproofing techniques to keep water and moisture-related problems at bay, such as installing vapor barriers and insulation and sealing gaps in floors and walls. Ayers Basement Systems can protect your basement remodel with proven basement waterproofing solutions designed to keep your basement dry all the time.
  • Increase Square Footage: If you want to add extra livable space to your home, basement remodeling is the way to do it. Finishing a basement is a cost-effective way take to advantage of existing space, rather than investing in an expensive home addition.
  • Modernize Your Basement: A basement renovation provides an opportunity to add function and beauty to a previously unused space. Whether a home gym, guest suite, media room, or something else, you have the freedom to transform your lower level into a space that suits your lifestyle and needs.
  • Boost Your Home Value: Finishing your basement is an excellent way to increase the value of your home. For most homeowners, a high-quality basement remodel can produce an average ROI of 70-75%. A finished basement also tends to be more appealing to potential buyers if you plan to sell your home in the future.
  • Improve Energy Efficiency: Many unfinished basements have air leaks and insufficient insulation. As a result, the basement can waste energy and compromise the comfort of upstairs living spaces. Adding insulation and energy-efficient windows in the basement can help reduce heating and cooling costs and improve the overall comfort of your home. You may also qualify for tax credits or rebates for making energy-saving improvements.
