$100K Entry Range
$120K – $160K Average Range
$200K+ Top of Range

Here are the top 6 factors that drive cost:

1. LAYOUT AND AGE OF HOME

The basement is an extension of a home where families gather and play. It may be necessary to relocate plumbing or structural elements to accommodate this function. As a result, costs could rise. In addition to the budget, there are other factors to consider, including age, water intrusion, radon, and uneven concrete.

2. BASEMENT FEATURES

Appliances, cabinets, wet bars, and backsplashes will all influence the cost. Your basement will be the most cozy place in your house if you have a fireplace. Don’t forget to budget for stone, a mantel, gas, and electricity.

3. SPECIALTY ROOMS

Our team can add unique rooms such as wine cellars, home gyms, and crafting rooms to your basement if you decide to finish it later. The space is designed and built specifically for you. Customized spaces may cost more or less, depending on their materials, equipment, finishes, plumbing, and electrical systems.

4. BATHROOMS

The addition of a bathroom to your basement will make it a more convenient, complete, and luxurious space. Baths are expensive to build since they require water and electricity. Make sure you know how much water is in your basement so you can determine how much your basement will cost.

5. ELECTRICAL AND APPLIANCES

Your basement can be more convenient and impress your guests if you add appliances such as a kegerator, pizza oven, and microwave. It is often overlooked as part of the cost of new appliances that mechanical upgrades are required. We can help you estimate the cost of these upgrades.

6. EGRESS WINDOWS & CODE COMPLIANCE

It is mandatory for basements to have two egress points, and if there aren’t two, it will increase the cost. Egress windows are a type of window that can be opened in an emergency. Along with providing natural light and ventilation, egress windows can also add natural light to a room to make it feel more comfortable.

Nearly Finished

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

A Nearly Finished Basement is a cost-friendly way to start using a space in your home that’s underused. NFBs creates the framework of your basement and sets you up to turn an unfinished basement into your dream space.

Here are the top 6 factors that drive cost:

1. LAYOUT AND AGE OF HOME

The basement serves as an extension of the home, where families gather and play. If this use is to be accommodated, it may be necessary to relocate the structural elements and the plumbing in the basement. This will obviously increase the cost of the project. Taking into consideration the budget is not the only issue; other factors such as the age of the home, water intrusion, radon, and uneven concrete need to be considered as well.

2. BASEMENT FEATURES

A custom bar can make turn your basement into an entertainment space. Custom cabinets, wet bars, backsplashes, and appliances will affect cost. A fireplace is a perfect way to make your basement the coziest space in the house. You’ll want to account for the cost of stone, a mantel, a gas line, and power when budgeting.

3. SPECIALTY ROOMS

If you choose to finish your basement later, we can add unique rooms such as wine cellars, gyms, and craft rooms. You name it, we’ll build it. Depending on their materials, equipment, finishes, plumbing, and electrical systems, customized spaces may cost more or less.

4. BATHROOMS

$150K – $190K Average Range
$200K+ Top of Range

Here are the top 6 factors that drive cost:

1. AGE OF HOME

For your remodel to be successful, you might need to update the mechanical systems, such as plumbing, HVAC, and electrical. This depends on when the house was constructed. If there is asbestos or lead in the home, then construction cannot begin.

2. SQUARE FOOTAGE

When you have more square footage, you have more opportunities to improve the overall functionality of your space. Keep in mind that materials and labor can be costly. No matter how big or small the space is, your designer will design a functional space.

Your home will feel refreshed and new if you remodel a significant portion of it. Despite all their expertise, construction teams cannot see every potential problem inside walls and underneath floors. Experienced and fixed pricing from FBC Remodel help you plan for unexpected events.

Historic Homes

What Makes A Historic Home?

Historic home remodeling can update older homes while maintaining their historic charm. Different types of projects can be considered historic homes. Those built before 1970 are considered historic homes by FBC Remodel.

Due to their custom nature, historically significant remodels can be more expensive and take longer to complete. Find out how historic remodel prices are calculated.

Average Historic Home Pricing

$70K+ Bathroom Remodels
$85K+ KITCHEN REMODELS

$100K+ NEARLY FINISHED BASEMENTS
$110K – $120K SMALL WHOLE HOME REMODEL
$125K – $140K LARGE WHOLE HOME REMODEL

THE TOP 6 FACTORS THAT DRIVE COST

1. BRINGING YOUR HOME TO CODE

It is common for historic homes to increase in value throughout the entire process, whether the condition of the house is very old or existing remodeling items aren’t completed properly. The process of bringing an older house up to code can be difficult and involve extra steps that are not required in a modern home. You can add insulation to the house in addition to adding egress windows, adjusting the ceiling heights, and rewiring it.

2. SPECIALTY TRADES

If a plumber or HVAC contractor works on a historic home in Minneapolis, they need a special license. These trades tend to be more expensive because of their expertise and the complexity of working in a historic house.

3. CEILING HEIGHTS

It is generally required to have at least 7′ of ceiling height, especially in basements. Some cities won’t allow construction until you reach this ceiling height, which usually means digging down or moving pipes that cause low ceilings.

4. UPGRADING MECHANICS & ELECTRICAL

Updating a historic home’s plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems is necessary. There may be a need to rewire, clean up electrical wiring, add plumbing, and install a subpanel.

5. LEAD & ASBESTOS

Our construction and living projects are tested for lead and asbestos in order to create a safe environment. It is common to find lead and asbestos in historic homes. Most homes built before 1978 contain lead, while modern homes may contain asbestos. These issues can result in significant expenses for the homeowner.

6. FLOORING

In older homes, there is a greater need for brand new floors than simply replacing the existing ones. Most historic homes need their floors leveled, as well as waterproofing and drain tiles, both of which can be very expensive.

Home Additions

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

If your home is ready to grow, a home addition may be the right remodel service for you. This includes adding new external structures to expand the square footage of your home. If you love your location, and love your existing space, but just need more room, a home addition is the service for you. Find out what to expect for the costs of a home expansion in Naperville, IL.

$200K Entry Range
$250 – $400K Average Range
$400K+ Top of Range

Here are the top 6 factors that drive cost:

1. ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERING

Due to the extensive engineering and architectural needs included in the design-build of a home addition, an architect will be brought into the FBC Remodel process. This inclusion of an architect will typically require an additional fee and include the development of architectural documents and plans for construction. An architect will be able to identify what is structurally possible for the design especially when it comes to expanding existing spaces.

2. CLIMATE CONTROL

Climate Control is a must-have for any home addition. This includes setting up heating and air conditioning for the new space, which may include significant costs if it’s not possible to utilize existing climate control features from the current home. For example, if your heating furnace is currently located in a basement, it may require extensive excavation to connect that furnace to a new structure. Isolated systems are also alternative options.

3. PLUMBING & ELECTRIC

Similarly to climate control, plumbing and electricity are major cost drivers due to the potential need to build from scratch, rather than work off existing structures or wiring. Depending on the type of rooms in your addition (bathroom or owner’s suite), plumbing may add a significant cost to your addition.

4. EXTERNAL STRUCTURE

There are additional costs included in simply building an external structure from the ground up. This includes needing to construct a new foundation, walls, and roof, versus a remodel, which is able to utilize existing structures and in some cases, not touch those structures beyond paint or wallpaper.

5. EXTERNAL MATERIALS

With the addition of a new external structure, comes the need for new external materials which may add a significant cost to your home addition. Matching existing materials can add cost, and if the existing materials can’t be matched, you may find the significant cost with the need to completely re-do the exterior of the entire home.

6. CABINETRY

Depending on the type of rooms included in your home addition, cabinetry may become a significant cost for your project. If a kitchen or owner’s bathroom is included, bringing in a full set of new cabinets can tack on thousands to your project.

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.”
