Chicago Basement Remodeling Contractors


Basements are some of the most common rooms of a home unless you reside in Florida. These sub-floors are great for adding extra square-footage to a home as well as increasing the home’s property value. On the other hand, Chicago is a city of basements, and It epitomizes the term concrete-jungle. The Midwest is known for basements thanks to its brutally-cold winters, and this region has some of the best built sub-flooring.

Remodeling a Chicago Greystone Basement


Renovating a Chicago Basement.  The Windy City is known for its Bungalow and Greystone homes. Bungalows can be found throughout the city’s South & West Sides. These single-family, low-pitched homes have full basements. On the other hand, Greystones are found near the North Side and these homes posses full basements with corridors and low-ceilings.

Since Greystones are fairly old dwellings, many of the homes have wooden-pilings on top of the concrete foundation. This is great for water-absorption, but it decreases head-room while standing.

What’s the difference between finishing and remodeling?


Refinishing vs Remodeling Your Basement. Renovating a basement is a major task, but most people can’t differentiate between refinishing and remodeling. Refinishing is all about sprucing-up the area by adding drywall, encasing the pipes/duct work and adding a floor. Remodeling is more about infrastructure since you’ll be implementing the plumbing, adding electrical wiring and rearranging walls.

Things To Consider:

If you’re in the refinishing process, then you won’t be making any major changes because the project is strictly superficial.

If you’re in the remodeling process, then you’re basically “gutting” the area for optimal performance.
