1-Leg: Your basement will be used several different ways. We have learned long ago, that one person’s vision of how space should be used is different than another person. You are going to be looking for a price, but it will be impossible to attempt to give you a price without knowing what you want to do with the space. When only one of the homeowners is present during our visit(s), it is literally impossible to give you a price.
The people of Basement Options have no idea where the name came from, but the industry calls only one person home a “1-Leg.” One person home cost us a great deal of money. We make every effort to ask at our shows and to confirm the night before the appointment, that all decision makers will be present.
Precut: We have a large warehouse/workshop where a large portion of your basement is precut. The more “parts” to your basement that can be made before actually starting the job in your home, the less time and money will be used to complete the project. You will find that most of the 2 X 4s etc. will be ready for install when we arrive - day one.
“My brother is a plumber.”: We hear this many times. If you have a close relative or friend that is a licensed plumber or electrician and he is willing to do the work at no cost to you for labor, then we would be more than willing to use him. BUT, he would need to be on our timeline. He cannot show up at his leisure. Basement Options is a very professional company that puts together basements like a giant puzzle. When it is time for the electrician or plumber, he must be there. That said, you can save money if you don’t have to pay for his labor.
Cost: There is no way for us to determine cost on a website. The price is determined by how many feet of one-sided and two-sided walls will be built. Costs vary a great deal by what you choose in the way of bathroom fixtures, lighting, flooring, ceiling, doors, trim, stairs, etc. The good news is that we will show you all of this during our first visit and we will give you an intelligent “guesstimate as to what it will cost for the entire project. On our second visit we will give you an exact, what we call, “Precise Price.” The only way this will change is if you add or subtract something from your “want list.”
