How We Can Help with Your Basement Renovation Project

For basement remodeling, Washington DC residents can rest assured that our team at Zen Renovations has them covered. Helping with everything from upgrading the floors and ceilings to creating a whole new design, we'll produce the finished basement you’ve been dreaming of.

Basement Walls

Basement Walls

As part of our basement remodeling, Washington residents can turn to us to improve basement walls. For many, the basement is left largely unfinished, so we will help handle everything from insulating the walls to drywalling and painting. Many basements are cold so insulating correctly is key.  

Basement Flooring

Basement Flooring

To transform any unfinished basement into a comfortable living space, the floors must be upgraded. In about 90% of our basement remodeling projects, we install luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP). LVP is very durable and water resistance which is imporant in case there is any water penetration into the home. Carpenting can be installed as well, we just need to make sure that the basement is 100% waterproofed.

Basement Ceiling

Included in our basement renovation, Washington DC homes tend to need new ceilings- something that requires a keen attention to detail. For code purposes, your ceiling height needs to be at least 7’ to be habitable and 6’4” underneath support beams and bulkheads. For some homes, ceilings are left unfinished. This is where design experts step in, helping to design your ceilings for a more homey look. 

Basement Windows

Basement Windows

For basements with ample windows, we will help elevate the design while remaining within your budget, allowing your basement to get all the natural light it can. If there is a separate bedroom in the basement, you will need an egress window with specific dimensions to allow for exiting the basement through the window in case of a fire.

Basement Concept We Can Build

No matter the basement remodel, Washington DC residents can trust our team to bring their concept to life. Some basement concepts we can implement include:

  • Home Office: A great use for your basement is as a home office. With more people taking advantage of flexible work schedules, having a basement set up for a home office will help boost your success.
  • Guest Suite: Create an extra bedroom space for visitors in your basement with some essential improvements. From insulating the space to providing more privacy, the basement is a great place to host guests. 
  • Home Theater: For movie lovers, the basement can be a great place to create a home theater, allowing you to get the best seat for viewing. 
  • Fitness Center: Elevate your fitness routine with a home gym, equipped to host everything from weights to a treadmill. 
  • Game Room: Whether you want the kids to have a space for gaming aside from the common area, or want to play more of your own games, a gaming room is a great way to keep the controllers out of the main space.

Reviews from Our Valued Clients

My wife and I couldn't be happier with the renovation of our basement by Kevin and his team. His pricing was fair and we feel that we got great value for the investment we made in our home. The basement turned out beautiful - better than we could have imagined. I'd highly recommend Zen Renovations and will use them for any future renovations in our home.

Kevin and his team put in a bathroom in an unfinished part of our basement. The bathroom looks great and he came back and addressed some things after the work was complete and we were pleased by his desire to make things right. I have already served as a reference for another job he was bidding on, and referred a friend to him.

Kevin and his team took on a significant project and made it go by very smoothly! We added a bathroom to the unfinished portion of our basement, which was a large task and the process went very smoothly. We are incredibly pleased with how the project turned out and will be using Zen Renovations in the future!
