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.

Reasons for a Basement Renovation

Our customers have many reasons for finishing their basement, such as creating a

  • Play area for children
  • Media room for family
  • Office space
  • Guest room or in-law suite
  • Finished utility space
  • Finished laundry room
  • Entertainment area with wet bar

We’ve delivered finished basements for all of these needs. Similarly, our team of skilled craftsmen and diligent project managers work closely with you to create the ideal basement space for you.

The basement below started out as a huge, unfinished space. We created a full kitchen, bathroom, dining room, exercise room, bedroom, and seating area.

Our Basement Remodeling Process

  1. First, we will send an Estimator to your home to draw a footprint of the space and discuss your wishlist. Our Estimators work with you to build a space that meets your budget and needs. Stamped basement plans start at just $1,000

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.

4. Your Project Manager will work with you finalize the designs, verify all material, file the proper sub-codes and complete the permit application process. Your project manager will oversee your project from start to finish.

Basement Finishing by Monk’s

Here are a few additional basement projects completed by Monk’s.

This basement project involved a lot of carpentry. We constructed built-ins, put up board-and-batten wainscoting, added crown molding and trimmed the columns.

This basement project involved adding a new full bathroom, a kitchenette, and separate areas for the parents and kids.

A completely unfinished basement when we started. We finished the space, as well as added an egress window so the homeowners could market the home with an additional bedroom.

Real Reviews from Monk’s Customers

Job well done, very happy

Job well done, very happy with the workers and supervisors. In a time of unprecedented work volume they kept pushing to keep the work moving forward. Basement looks great. Special thanks to Eric, Eddy, David, Dennis, Sergio, and a bunch of other guys who worked their butts off. Couldn’t have had a crew of nicer guys living in my basement for a couple months.

We hired Monks to finish

We hired Monks to finish our basement and also paint the interior of our home. The basement renovation included a kitchen, full bath, office, and casual living area. The 1500 square foot renovation was extensive and Monks completed the project in a very timely manner. The team which included Mike Drohan, Jason Schroth, David Espinoza, and Dave Cleaves were invaluable with their professional and technical expertise. This team offered significant guidance and initiative throughout the project. Monks efforts have not only enhanced our home but also gave us a beautifully designed and finished living space. We will hire only Monks to do additional future projects. Robert Gallo
