Incorporating a basement into a home can enhance its character and value. Basements are blank canvases that are just waiting for you to paint your own masterpiece. It is straightforward and cost-effective to finish your basement when you already have the framework in place, so you do not have to worry about a complete remodel or renovation.

It’s up to you how you finish your basement! Every step of the way, a designer from our award-winning company will ensure that your new basement is a delight for years to come.

When it comes to finishing your basement, you get to decide what you want to include in it. Is it a gym? How about a luxury wine cellar? Would you like to add a new bedroom to your growing family? Consider all of these factors when deciding how to use your finished basement.

In order to learn what is most important to each client, we listen carefully. With the addition of a finished basement, your home will become more comfortable and convenient.



Unfinished basements allow you to design the basement of your dreams. You might be able to make your basement the favorite room in the house based on its features and functions. Below are some basement renovation projects our team has completed:

The following list is not exhaustive, but it illustrates some possibilities for what our team may be able to achieve. When we conduct a basement design consultation, we will examine all aspects of your basement, so you can have the basement of your dreams! If the designers are not able to find the exact item you’re looking for in your basement, they can dig around until they do!


The foundation and framework of your dream basement must be solid. By finishing your basement, you’ve already laid the foundation and can design a beautiful, functional space. A finished basement can enhance your home’s enjoyment and value. When designing your new space, think about your budget and select features that minimize your costs while still creating a functional and beautiful space. Some things to consider when calculating basement finishing costs include:


  • The layout of your current basement 
  • The age of your home
  • Any basement features that you choose
  • Whether you are adding specialty rooms to your basement
  • Adding a bathroom
  • Electrical work and adding in appliances
  • Egress windows and code compliance

MID RANGE: $85K – $140K

In every home we enter, we hope to bring joy. As a result of the goals we created and the dedication of our passionate team, we have created processes that will facilitate our mission.

Design and build projects are our specialty. We work on your project from concept to completion based on your specifications. You don’t have to hire a contractor to design and lay out your basement yourself when you employ our basement finishing services; we will do the grunt work for you and ensure that your finished basement has everything you want. We believe that hiring a design/build firm is among the best ways to ensure you get everything you want, reduce your stress during the process, and come to the end with a space you love.

Let us help you bring joy into your home when you choose to work with us! You can start by contacting one of our award-winning designers for a free consultation. The design consultation allows us to learn more about our clients, their interest, needs, and wants, as well as their style in order to create a space to match their vision.

Our 3D renderings help you visualize your finished basement and ensure every measurement is accurate.

Construction begins after the design phase is completed. An explanation of the renovation process will be provided to you during the basement construction schedule. The process of creating an elegant, beautiful, and customized basement will take about six weeks.

Customer Reviews

FBC Remodel is proud to Build Joy® for homeowners. See what our customers have to say about working with us.

“We can't say enough about the design team at FBC. We had multiple companies bid on our project and everyone else came back with the same basic design (a good but not spectacular layout). But FBC looked at the space from a completely different angle and in the process was able to create everything on our wishlist including an extra room. The design was elegant and functional and our family now benefits from it every day.”

Michael S.

“FBC did an amazing job with our 1600 sq ft basement. The sales team listened to our vision, offered several options and helped us stay within budget. Our PM was fantastic! We received daily communication with minimal life interruption, realistic expectations and partnered with us to ensure every aspect was covered. They even finished early!!! We had met with 2 other contractors and are so happy about our choice! They accommodated our quirky requests for a brewery room, rerouting our laundry dryer vent, closeting our water piping for access and exterior window well changes. Best choice ever!!!”

Heather R.

“The design/construction approach by FBC produced an excellent finished product for us. We added a large recreation room for pool, TV and games along with a bedroom and bathroom. Ceiling soffits, arched entries and angled walls created a unique and inviting space. The project team and trade partners did fine work and we are very happy with our new basement. All work was completed on schedule and within budget. The best part was having all construction access through the basement window. Our only advice is to carefully review all design details to assure that everything you want is clearly specified in the drawings. Then be part of the team by doing quality control as the project moves along.”
