Basement Finishing FAQ's

How much does a finished basement add to
the value of my home?

According to Remodeling Online's 2008/09 Cost vs. Value Report (http://www.remodeling.hw.net/2008/costvsvalue/national.aspx) an average of 73.9% of the cost of a basement remodeling project is recovered when the property is sold, offering one of the biggest returns of investment among most common home remodeling projects. However, the true value of a basement remodel can't be computed based on cost recovery alone.

Despite the housing market ups and downs, according to the U.S. Census bureau, property values have been increasing steadily nearly doubling every 20 years, for the past 60 years. So any improvement made to an existing home will pay for itself in the long run.

Add to that the significant savings in heating and cooling costs, provided by adequate basement insulation, which according to the U.S. Department on Energy can be anywhere between $200 and $400 a year. The TBF basement finishing system will provide moisture control as well, keeping your basement drier, cleaner, healthier and more comfortable.
