Itemizing expenses for an accurate estimate on your basement remodel project

Remodeling or finishing your basement can be a great way to add value and increase the livable footprint of your home.  We commit to a thorough assessment of your basement before we begin to ensure that your investment will not be jeopardized by water damage.  This helps us provide our customers with an accurate estimate and insure their investment last for years to come.  Our goal is to make sure your vision for your basement matches your budget.

At Dore and Sons we stand behind our work and that means starting with a thorough consultation.  We believe its our job, as the experts who complete projects regularly, to educate and guide our customers through a process that they may only do once or twice in a lifetime.  We provide a full picture of material costs, labor costs, permits and project timeline so that each customer can make the right choices for their project.

Why it makes sense to budget for a professional basement finishing

Unfortunately there are many unscrupulous and unlicensed contractors that will say anything the customer wants to hear in order to secure the job.  At Dore and Sons Colorado Remodeling we live in the community where we perform our work.  That means maintaining a high level of integrity by using only skilled craftsmanship and quality materials.  Our neighbors and customers deserve complete honesty before they invest their hard earned money into their home.  Our reputation is too important to us to perform inferior work for our customers and neighbors.

Basement finishing and remodeling costs to consider

With over 40 years of construction experience, we know that basements, like all construction projects start with… well literally… a solid foundation.  We are capable of performing all work from structural issues to cosmetic changes.  For minor projects such as new carpeting or a repaint we may refer the job to some trusted contractors we have worked with previously.  We usually work with clients seeking a more complete makeover that makes it feel like you are walking into a new room.   

For our clients that are looking to make several improvements to their home, we are your one-stop shop. We encourage to you look through our options in kitchen remodeling costs and bathroom remodeling costs and discuss with us further once you have decided to move forward.

When we receive an inquiry into a basement remodel; we start to start by having a short phone conversation to make sure we will be a good fit to work together on your project.  If we decide to move forward we’ll schedule an on-site visit so we can narrow in our initial estimate.  This gives us a better feel for the space we are working with and determine whether your vision is not only within your budget, but feasible in the workspace.  

Its important to take the time on the choices on the high, mid, and low end of your budget.  If you need to scale back to hit your budget; you have a few choices to consider.  You may have a room or feature that you can delete or choose from more inexpensive choices in materials.  Small compromises can go a long way to putting your project at a price you feel comfortable with.  Be sure to keep in mind any future improvements you may want to make at a later date.

Some customers may not know exactly what improvements they want or able to make.  We are happy to do some hand-holding for those who feel they need some assistance in getting the most of their renovation project.  We can show you a range of sample materials so we can make choices that match your personal preferences.
