What Does It Cost to Finish Your Basement In Denver Colorado?

So, you bought your house with an unfinished basement. You’re either in desperate need of the extra space because of your family’s needs or finishing your basement is something that you just want to do. In either case your first question is naturally “How much is this basement remodel going to cost me?

Determining Factors For Basement Finishing

Finished Basement Denver ColoradoThe first question you’re going to get asked is how many square feet are you finishing? Pricing per square foot can start at around $45 a square foot and go up from there – depending on the size of your basement or area you plan to get finished.  In reality, the cost to finish your projects really depends on the materials that you choose.  If you want imported Italian marble floor the price per square foot will be more expensive than if you went with a standard flooring.  If you want crown molding it will cost more than if you went without.   

With that in mind, $35,000 is a good idea to start on a simple basement in the Denver area. One or two bedrooms, a family room and a 3-piece bathroom is standard. It’s hard to put a general price on a basement because, like fingerprints, no two basement finishing projects are the same. There are many things that you will need to factor into the overall price.

Does your basement already have an egress window well with ladder? If not, excavation will be required as well as cutting through the concrete wall and installing an egress to code. That can run you an extra 5k.

Would you like a trendy barn style door? Those can range based on size/style and run from $1k to $3k.

Tile can run from $6 per square foot for a straight lay basic tile with installation and go up from there if a herringbone pattern is more your style. Carpet can run you $4 per square foot and $45 per stair.
