Basement Remodeling Services

Finishing, renovating, or remodeling a basement is a popular renovation project, and for good reason. It adds additional living space, therefore improving the quality of life for you and your family. It also substantially increases your resale value. Since a basement renovation is less expensive than an addition, it’s a more cost-effective way to the additional square footage you want.

Finished Basement Experts

At Monks, we can take a completely unfinished and uninviting space, and turn it into a functional extension of your home. If you have a finished basement but it needs a makeover, we can renovate, reconfigure, add a bathroom, bedroom or bar.  In either scenario, adding an egress window can also bring in light and provide safety. We offer a variety of services to renovate your basement space as you wish.

Our Basement Remodeling Process

2. Then, you’ll work with one of our in-house Designers to create a layout that is both functional and beautiful. This meeting will happen in one of our two showrooms. If you are adding a kitchen or bathroom, your Designer will also help create these areas. She’ll walk you through selecting all of your materials, based on your style and budget. 3-D renderings are included.
