The Cost to Finish a Basement

Cost to Finish a BasementMany homeowners are surprised to learn that the cost to finish a basement with the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ is actually less per square foot, on average, than above ground construction. Plus, when you consider that many home remodeling projects have a tendency to go over budget, take several weeks to complete, and can be a major mess, remodeling a basement with the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ may become an even more compelling option.

What Makes the Basement Finishing System Affordable?

As with most home remodeling projects, the cost to finish a basement depends largely on the quality of the basement renovation. The Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ is unlike traditional basement remodeling methods, however, in that it was designed to be used exclusively in the basement.. Features like removable walls and trim, built-in acoustic insulation, and mold and mildew-resistant* walls make it the perfect option for basement environments and tend to garner rave reviews. Additionally, the cost to finish the basement may seem even lower when you consider that the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ may:

  • Add to the overall property value of the home
  • Help lead to energy cost savings thanks to built-in thermal insulation that helps cut down on heat transfer into and out of the home**
  • Look great for as long as you own your home because of the Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty as long as you own your home***
  • Allow for easy access to the foundation, so necessary repairs can be made without the cost of ripping out the walls of the basement, painting, and sanding

Rather than adding onto the home, why not take better advantage of the floor space you already have? In only about two weeks, professional installers can transform your basement from a neglected, dingy area into a personal office, gym, game room, home theater, or nearly anything else that you can imagine.
