Frequently Asked Questions About Basement Remodeling
Is the Team at Optimum Licensed and Insured?
Absolutely! Not only are our teams fully insured, but we carefully vet everyone we hire not only for trustworthiness but for skill and ability. We make sure that the people we use to complete your basement remodel are the absolute best in the business.
What Are Popular Basement Remodels?
Popular basement remodeling projects in the area include adding additional bedrooms and children’s playrooms, installing personal fitness centers, and of course, the much desired man cave or home theater.
What Special Considerations Go Into a Basement Remodel?
Virginia has strict requirements for basement construction. This means our team makes sure we adhere to all regulations and permitting requirements regarding electrical, plumbing, egress, and more. Prior to starting work, our teams will create a comprehensive checklist that ensures we don’t miss a step at any construction process stage.
Will HVAC, Plumbing, and Other Systems Need To Be Updated To Complete a Basement Remodel?
It’s possible. If your HVAC system doesn’t have sufficient BTU to heat/cool the additional space or your plumbing systems are below your existing pipes, you may need to purchase a new furnace/air conditioner, install a sewage ejector, etc. You may also need to upgrade your electrical system in order to comply with area building codes. Our team will consider these factors during the planning stages and identify any specific updates or upgrades you will need to complete the basement remodel.
Does Optimum Construction Have a Showroom?
We’re building a design center that will be open soon. Once completed, our customers can explore the many features and finishes our teams can install. This will make it easier for our clients to visualize the possibilities and determine the best way to complete their dream basement.
How Long Does It Take To Complete a Basement Remodel?
Most projects take between one to three months to complete. It all depends on the amount of work required, desired features, and finishes requested. Prior to starting work, our design team will provide you with a detailed time estimate.
Do Basement Remodels Require the Use of Specialized Materials?
Basements tend to be moist and damp, which means that standard building materials are not advisable for basement construction projects. Using the wrong material can result in a beautifully finished basement that will not stand the test of time. Our team will help guide you to the best products to use for basement remodels so that your basement looks stunning for many years down the road.
Do You Provide References?
We are happy to provide references and show you examples of previous basement remodels we’ve completed. It’s our pleasure to highlight our work and show you the many possibilities we can bring to life in your own basement remodeling projects.
