Often families feel like their lower-level is personal space, where a lot of everyday living goes on. That's were lower-level finishing comes in.
The den. The man cave. The game room. There are so many better names for the basement, especially after it’s been finished, remodeled and transformed into the room of your dreams. Need a new space to entertain guests, watch the game or work on your home business? Lower level finishing for your St Paul home may just be the solution for you.
If your basement is being used only as a storage area, why not turn that place into “the place” to hang out? From a beautiful home theater, to office space, to an extra bedroom or playroom, there are many ways the lower level of your home can be transformed from wasted to wonderful – and often, in a short amount of time. Titus Contracting specializes in lower level finishing, and we would love to help transform your space.

Here are a few more of our favorite reasons to consider this renovation project for your home:
Top Reasons to Consider Finishing Your Lower-Level
* ROI & Budget Friendly
Everyone knows a finished basement is a major plus when searching for a new home. Lower level finishing can add major appeal to your home when it’s time to sell. And, since the basement is already a part of your home, there are no costs associated like with building an addition. The foundation, load-bearing walls, floors, and ceiling are all already in place, so that eliminates the need and costs associated with building a new part of your home. You get additional space for you and your family to use at a fraction of the cost.
* A more Energy Efficient HomeAnother budget-friendly reason to finish your basement is to make it more energy efficient and help save on utility bills. We can fix any air leaks or insulation problems as well as put in new, more energy-efficient windows. h3>* Versatility in Design
Lower level finishing is the opposite of one-size-fits-all. You could have the entire space made into a home bar with a mini eat-in kitchen area, an entertainment room; or, section off a home office, create a bedroom for the in-laws or incorporate a playroom for the kids. Really, whatever you can imagine we can design! You can even get that pool table and kegerator you’ve always wanted.
* Optimized Space
You might use your basement for storage right now, and chances are, larger appliances like your furnace are down in your basement too. But think of all of that wasted space you and your family could be using! There are so many different and new purposes for your basement when you tackle a lower level finishing project.
