Basement Finishing Prices

Custom Basement Finishing

Looking for more than just the standard basement finish? 
Do your plans for using the basement include entertaining friends or setting up Dad's MAN CAVE
What about a kitchen area, bar area, home theater, game area or wine cellar?
Will load bearing walls need to be eliminated to make the space more open?
What if the existing layout just doesn't work for you?

These things can all be done but are over and above the standard basement finishing features listed below.

If your basement fits in this category, we are happy to work with you to create the basement design you've dreamed about.  The first step in our custom basement finishing is to provide you with a Design Agreement.  Through the Design Agreement, we collaboratively work with you to create the layout, features and project scope that will give you the basement that you want.  From cabinetry and flooring specifications to the electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems.  We also generate cost schedules for you to use in determing the final budget.  We then work with you to come up with the right plan that works for you and your budget.

Our fee for this service will depend on the level of customization required and the overall square footage of the basement.  The fee for this service is based on the overall scope of work and is generally 2% of the projected budget.  However, these fees are credited back to you should you choose Plantation Renovation for the build contract.
The most common question asked of us is "How much does it cost to finish a basement?"

For a standard professional basement finish, what is included?

  • Heating and air conditioning system for the basement to properly control temperature and humidity to meet code
  • Basic electrical wiring for switches and outlets (code required minimum) and one standard ceiling mount fixture per room. We supply the lighting.
  • Raised panel doors and basic wall trim (baseboards but not crown).
  • No structural changes to load bearing walls are included
  • All poured concrete walls will have newly framed walls placed in front of them
  • Basic insulation of exterior walls to meet energy codes
  • 1/2" drywall on all walls and ceilings finished for a smooth, pleasant non-basement feel
  • A standard full bathroom with fiberglass tub/shower combo kit, basic toilet, and basic vanity. We supply all bathroom fixtures.
  • A high quality paint job is included which is a prime coat and two top coats featuring premium Sherwin Williams paint.
  • Flooring is also included with a selection of carpet with upgraded 8lb padding for most areas and a selection of 12 x 12 tile flooring for the bathroom and wet areas.
  • We handle all permitting and technical issues.

The starting price for the above level of finish is $40 per square foot of finished space for areas greater than 1000 square feet.  If less than 1000 square feet of space is to be finished, this price will change.

This price range does not include cabinets for built-ins, kitchens or bars.
