Your basement is the most cost effective way to add on to your home.When you finish your basement with the Basement Living System; it is very similar to putting a vinyl fence around your yard (vs) a wood fence. Or building a deck with lifetime boards and railings (vs) wood decking and wood railings. In the long run composites, vinyl, fiberglass and lifetime parts and components are going to provide you more of a maintenance free lifestyle as well as providing you a return on the original money that you spend if you were to ever sell your home. Finishing the basement will then of course raise the value of your property; giving you more equity and more of a wow factor to potential buyers, if you were to ever consider selling. Finishing your basement with the Basement Living System creates a worry free, Win- Win situation.
