In Home Consultation
Thank you for contacting Basement Builders of NY. Due to the extreme high volume and demand of home offices and rec rooms during this time, we are operating on a modified schedule and process to be able to service all of our current clients and incoming requests for estimates. The construction industry has been overwhelmed considerably..
Many towns, suppliers response time has been challenging and time is lately ever more precious.
Home offices and rec rooms have been Essential for many families.
Our process is in place to expedite, inform and respond to ALL of our incoming calls and email requests.
STEP 1: Please take the time to visit our website at www.basementbuildersofny.com. You will find an interactive model to navigate through one of our basement remodels.
STEP 2: Have an idea of the basement area that you would like to remodel. Measuring all of the gross floor areas from foundation wall to foundation wall will give you the total square footage to be remodeled.
STEP 3: The industry averages for basement remodeling reported out of Buffalo was between $38 per square foot and up to 55-$65/sq.ft. We have been averaging $44.00/sq.ft for a remodeled basement including adding an egress window. There are variables which will dictate this price per square foot. As referred to us as a “CORE”cost, I would use $45.00/sq.ft as a baseline. Bathrooms, custom bars, etc. can be quoted on site.
A basement “CORE” cost would include the following:
Insulated walls (Roxul)
Combination wood and metal frame walls for quality and moisture
Electric plugs, switches, smoke detectors, dimmers
Mold resistant drywall
Doors, trim, doorknobs, to match existing home
Ceiling-2x2 suspended- with revealed edge tile, drywall or painted
Lighting-Led with dimmers
Flooring-premium 10lb. pad with carpet and or luxury vinyl planking
Remove job related debris
STEP 4: Based on the information provided, please review your space that you intend to remodel and calculate the cost to see if this falls within your budget range.
STEP 5: Booking an appointment. We are charging an initial estimate fee of $125.00. This is due to the increase in operating expenses due to Covid-19.
You will receive valuable information during our meeting. We will discuss our materials, false myths of wall insulation, how to control moisture. I will disclose information and techniques of what we do is more than an opinion. It’s all documented for you.
When you book your appointment, you will notice that we have a two step process for defining an estimate and a proposal. We offer a design and comprehensive cost to build after your first initial estimate.
Our intent is to help families during this time and also maintain quality, communication and integrity.
Please book online at www.basementbuildersofny.com. You will be able to select a day and time that works best for you. I will be notified automatically and confirm your appointment. You will be meeting with a hands on builder, designer and the individual who built the company- Dave Panzera. Not a salesman.
Thank you once again for considering Basement Builders for your project.
