Your unfinished basement is currently nothing more than a glorified closet – a blank canvas waiting to make your artistic vision come to life. Have you always dreamed of a media room? Now’s your chance. Have you always wanted your own home theater? What’s stopping you? Of course, you could always go the more responsible route and add an extra bedroom and bathroom. Ca-ching! Hello, increased home value.
Additional benefits include:
- Unfinished basements tend to be both damp and humid, making them a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Not only does mold smell bad, but it has also been linked to several health issues.
- Unfinished basements are rarely insulated. As a result, the energy efficiency of your entire home can suffer. This will not only affect your comfort level, but also your energy bills. And with winter fast approaching, you cannot afford to wait. According to climate experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Frederick is in for ANOTHER harsh winter.
