Finishing or remodeling your basement? Adding a bathroom and/or wet bar can increase your home’s value. According to the 2016 Cost vs. Value Report, a basement remodel in St. Louis will provide a 58.2% return on investment (ROI), and adding a bathroom offers a 56.1% ROI.
What’s involved in a basement dig out?
Plumbing a basement is a big job. Your plumbing contractor will locate the main drain, create a plan for the new plumbing system, trench the floor with a sledgehammer, build the drain and vent systems, and backfill the trenches.
What does it cost?
The cost of plumbing a new bathroom depends on the layout of the existing plumbing, the location of existing plumbing features such as the cleanout, and the type of foundation. A basement or crawlspace will typically cost less than a concrete slab that must be cut through. Depending on these factors, and whether you add a half bath, or a full bath with a shower or tub, you could spend $10,580 – $26,996 on your basement remodel. According to Home Advisor, you’ll recoup anywhere from 47% – 67% on your investment.
First things first.
Before having your basement finished, look for signs of water or moisture, such as cracks in the foundation. You will want to have a sump pump installed to correct this problem before you begin your remodeling project.
