Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to finish a Basement in Utah?2023-12-21T12:19:59-07:00

What’s the average cost of basement finishing in Utah?2023-12-21T12:31:47-07:00

Over the last two years (2022 and 2023), Utah Basement Specialists finished 174 basements. The average cost for these basements was $36.74 per square foot. Factors that affect the overall price of your basements include:

  • Total square footage- smaller basements cost more per square foot.
  • Special features- kitchens, laundry connections, theater rooms, and exercise rooms add to the overall cost.
  • Floor coverings- carpet is the most common floor covering, and it is the most cost-effective. Tile, LVP, Acid-stained concrete, and laminate are all floor coverings that add to the overall cost of the basement.
  • Additional factors that affect the overall cost of your basement include- lighting, two or three-tone paint, and bathroom finishes.
To save money can I complete some basement processes myself?2023-12-21T12:34:38-07:00

Yes, that is a very common request, and we’re happy to work with you to meet your budget needs. The most common processes that owners complete are:

  • Painting
  • Baseboard installation
  • Carpeting
  • Bathroom finishes
Do I need a building permit to finish my Utah Basement?2023-12-21T12:38:01-07:00

Yes! Every city requires a building permit for your safety and the safety of future homeowners. Building permits are not expensive. The average cost is $500 or less. As a licensed general contractor, we must obtain all building permits and pass all safety inspections with the city. This service is included in every basement project we work on.

What are the most popular basement finishing trends in Utah?2023-12-21T12:44:05-07:00

Some of the trends we have seen over the past two years:

  • Basement Apartments: either for income or to help family members.
  • One-tone painting: this saves money and brightens up the basement.
  • LVP flooring: durable, waterproof, looks great, and is relatively cost-effective.
  • Exterior entrances: either for an apartment or for utility.
  • LED lighting: energy efficient and long-lasting.
How can I make my basement finish more energy efficient?2023-12-21T12:50:29-07:00

A few keys to an energy-efficient basement are:

  • Insulation: most newer basements have insulated walls. Few have insulation in the ceiling. Ceiling insulation is a thermal envelope to keep heat in the basement and has the added benefit of acting as a sound dampener. The only downside is that it is relatively expensive.
  • LED lighting: the yearly cost is pennies per fixture.
  • Instant water heater: They’re somewhat expensive and require regular maintenance, but they are much more efficient than standard water heaters.
  • Energy efficient heating and air conditioning: this is a standard feature for newer homes. For an older home, this may be a great way to make your house much more energy efficient.
