Basement Renovations

Finishing a basement not only adds value and usable square footage, but it is also a way to further personalize your home. From walk-out basements with outdoor living spaces to a secluded home office space, you have the freedom to make custom choices for your own personal getaway.

Renovating or building below grade comes with unique challenges like excavation, drainage systems, vapor barriers, waterproofing, in addition to the usual qualified trades needed to safely finish your project. Whether you live in Maryland or DC, there are local and state regulations, as well as permitting processes to follow regarding issues like egress, electrical safety, plumbing, etc. Optimum Construction will assist you in obtaining the proper permits and then plan for a basement remodel that looks seamless and feels as comfortable as the rest of your home.
