Signs Your Bethesda Basement Needs Remodeling

The basement is usually the most overlooked section of your home. Perhaps you only go down there to grab something from storage every once in a while – if at all. 

When you notice these signs, it's time to call a professional remodeler, like AC Remodeling, so you can fully utilize this neglected space.

You Have No More Space Upstairs

If your family is growing and everyone needs more personal space, the basement is a great area to expand into. With some planning, we can turn your unfinished basement into a cozy and comfortable living area, workout room, or entertaining space for everyone to enjoy.

Water and Moisture Damage

If you've noticed that moisture is seeping through your walls or floor, it's a definite sign that your basement needs upgrading. Not only does this pose health risks due to mold exposure, but it can also cause significant damage to the structure of your home. 

These are signs that you need to waterproof your basement so that it remains dry, comfortable, and safe:

  • Cracking or peeling paint on the walls.
  • Musty odors and dampness in the air.
  • Visible signs of mold, mildew, or rot.
  • Puddles of water on the floor.

AC Remodeling can turn any basement into a new living space. Secondary living rooms, kids play and game rooms, and home gyms are popular choices that your basement can transform into when you finish it. The option is entirely up to you and your family's interests.

Our Basement Remodeling Process

While not as intrusive as a kitchen remodeling project, basement remodeling projects can cause a disturbance in your home. To mitigate this, we keep our clients informed throughout every step. We use a simple five-step process that starts with an initial consultation and ends with the final walkthrough. Also, we'll be there to answer your questions, address any issues you may have, and ensure that all of your needs are met. 

Step 1

Initial Consultations

When you contact us, we will discuss your goals, timeline, and desired budget, as well as answer any questions you may have.

If our approach works well with your vision, we may offer a no-obligation, in-home consultation, where we evaluate your space, listen to your ideas, and provide feedback. Here, our project manager will help you further refine your vision, clarify your budget, and define the scope of work.

If you decide we are the best fit for you, we will then move to the design phase.

Step 2

Contract Approval and Basement Design

Please note that AC Remodeling’s customized designs are proprietary and time-intensive for our team. Therefore, we charge a design retainer for our detailed estimates and designs. We do not bid against other contractors.

The design fee is non-refundable but will be credited toward your final remodeling invoice.

After you sign our design agreement and we collect the retainer, our design experts will photograph and take detailed measurements of your space. Then we go to work creating high-quality 3D renderings that reflect your vision. (See examples of other clients’ projects.)

Together, we will review the final 3D design and scope of work. (What makes us unique is that we can make the project look just like your 3D design images!) Then we are ready to sign the full remodeling project contract.

Step 3

Meet Suppliers

We will set up appointments for you with suppliers and accompany you to help select your tile, lighting, fixtures, cabinets, countertops, appliances, and other materials.

Our designers will advise you on your selections and color combinations to ensure a stress-free process.

Step 4

Basement Construction

Once a project is underway, we work quickly and efficiently to stay on budget and on schedule.

Our project manager remains in constant contact with you as our craftsmen implement your concept.

We control construction dust, lay construction mats to prevent floor damage, remove debris, and even set up a satellite kitchen for your convenience when needed.

You will see your vision become reality as the project progresses.

Step 5

Celebrate & Share

Congratulations! Your newly remodeled basement is ready for you to enjoy (and maybe even share with friends and family on your social media).

We are honored to work with you to make your home meet your dreams. We go out of our way to ensure your satisfaction and always appreciate your feedback, reviews, and testimonials.

Your new basement is closer than you think!

From our first meeting/consultation to the completion of our basement remodel, Alex, Carolina and the team at AC Remodeling took the time to listen to our thoughts and present us with a design, now finished, that we are incredibly happy with! Ours was a tricky space to work with, but the resulting remodel is a wonderful refresh to the dark, dank space it was. They and their work crew were always professional and insistent on using quality materials. Even after completing the remodel, Alex and his team promptly answered our calls and follow up questions. We will gladly hire them again for future renovations. Thanks Alex and team!

We couldn’t be more happy with our experience working with Alex, Carolina and their team. We have had many contractors complete numerous projects on this and other houses, but working with the AC Remodeling team has been the best, hands down. Everything, from the design work to their simplified process for selecting cabinets, appliances and tile to their top quality craftsmanship. But, the best part of all was the people. The entire crew are true professionals. They always respected our house and our space and cleaned up before they left each evening. We really enjoyed working with them and chatting with them in the morning before they started and every evening to see what they accomplished that day. We will definitely work with AC Remodeling in the future and would recommend them for any remodeling job without reservations.

AC Remodeling renovated my basement and a bathroom. Alex and Carolina and their team were great to work with throughout the entire process, ensuring I was satisfied. I was picky at times with my selections (I wanted marble in a basement bathroom for example!) -- and Alex was flexible to accommodate and make sure everything matched well and was completed with quality. I would definitely work with them again and recommend!

Alex, Melissa, Carolina and the entire team were wonderful to work with from the beginning. They understood the family challenges, listened to what we needed and worked through each step with us. We ended up with a beautiful, new bathroom, repaired kitchen and all new plumbing. The entire team was so thoughtful and considerate about our space. Can not recommend more highly.

AC Remodeling was the best thing that ever happened to us. We will never do another home project without them. They were clear, responsive, caring, knowledgeable, and always on time and on budget. They listened to us, help guide the way to make the right decisions, checked in on us regurlarly, and did beautiful work. We recommend them to all of our family and friends. You cannot go wrong with AC Remodeling.

AC Remodeling remodeled our basement which had two sides finished at different times by the previous owners maybe 25 or 30 years ago. It was, cold, low ceilings, and not appealing. With the wall between areas and no bedroom door, we could never figure out how to change it. The design services provided at the beginning of the project showed us exactly how it would look in the end and now it looks just like the design. All of our exercise equipment is on one side and the in-law suite bedroom has a door and beautiful bathroom. There is an updated gorgeous kitchenette and TV room. We love to spend time down there. There was plenty of communication, and the final finishes are perfect. Anything that we required was incorporated and any questions and concerns were dealt with by Alex very quickly. We are very pleased with our remodel and we can't wait to have visitors.

2020 Update: I have since used Alex for another bathroom and a complete kitchen remodel, and he is as perfect as ever! We actually left the house for six weeks while he was doing the kitchen, to make it easier for me, and him. I didn't lose a wink of sleep over not being there. I can't imagine having any work done without Alex. I've also had smaller projects, painting, half bath, and front door. I highly recommend Alex, Carolina, and their team. They are expertly skilled, detail oriented, and so very careful with your home and your project. The pricing and project plan are clear and detailed, the team is proficient, polite, and extremely skilled, and from top to bottom they are committed to making you happy. My bathroom is spectacular and the entire process was pleasant. My project was a major overhaul of an onsuite master bath for me. Actually it was a tiny walkin closet and a tiny bathroom. We combined them into a larger bathroom with a dressing area. From the beginning Alex is clear, concise, and very knowledgeable. He lays out the project for you and gives you info on choices you have to make. He accompanied us to look at tile and fixtures and explained the pros and cons of the ones we were considering. He ordered, picked up and delivered everything. I mean everything. Tile. Fixtures. Rags. Garbage bags. Lumber. Door. Bottled water for his team! The project started very quickly. Throughout the project, the carpet and stairs were covered, even when the workers were gone for the day. When they were there, additional tarps were laid down. Every night the area was cleaned and packed up, the garbage was removed, etc. There was even a pole system tarp blocking off the area so dirt and debris were contained. There were 'challenges' in my project as there always are. The subfloor was mush and had to be replaced, as did the bottom of a few studs. Alex again showed me the issues, clearly laid out the options, but let me choose. I have heard horror stories of missing contractors, long delays, shoddy work. So I chose AC for two reasons, the 5 star rating and a photo of one of his projects that I loved the wood look tile on. So I feel happy and proud to add my own 5 star to the reviews.

We have been using AC remodeling since 2012 when they renovated our kitchen. That experience was so good, we’ve used them to renovate 2 baths, a french door, and numerous painting and fix-it jobs. Alex and his crew are extremely talented, do excellent work, always clean and tidy and within budget. We give them our highest endorsement. Truly, you cannot find a better contractor.

AC Remodeling just recently finished remodeling my master bath, and I am so happy with how it turned out! I had a vision, but needed help with selecting finishes. Alex and Carolina are wonderful to work with, and will guide you every step of the way (if that's what you want). I would not hesitate to recommend AC Remodeling to anyone wanting to remodel a bathroom. I am also dreaming of a kitchen remodel one day, and I know the first place I will call!

We hired AC Remodeling to remodel our kitchen, breakfast room and attached den area. They were referred by a friend and colleague who used AC for their kitchen remodel. From the very first visit until the final punch list item, the experience could not have been better. This is our 12th home and 5th kitchen remodel. We knew exactly what we wanted from our contractor. A company that listened, had a reputation for excellent quality, hired skilled and trustworthy people and used the best quality material is what we were after. Alex and Carolina Reyes and their crew provided us with a fabulous job. The quality and fit and finish are beyond words. We went for a very modern style and they delivered. I highly recommend AC Remodeling
