Sometimes, the best and most affordable way to add valuable living space to your Long Island home is not by adding on, but by heading down – into the basement.

Today, it’s possible to transform your home’s lower level like never before.

A finished basement brings substantial additional livable square footage without building up or out. And done right, it can become one of the most popular rooms in your home. From home theatres to personal gyms and spacious guest suites, a lower level remodel the ideal solution for turning any size basement into much needed living and/or entertaining space.

Will a Basement Remodel Add Value to My Home?

If you have the space, ceiling height, and place to install an additional exit, the finished square feet of living space can be the best found equity in your Hamptons home. Basement remodels are considered one of the top 10 home improvement projects for your dollar and rank high for return on investment, up to 70%.

Don’t overlook the non-financial value of a finished basement. If you’re trying to decide if a basement finishing project is truly worth it, think about how the space will be used and how much enjoyment you’ll get from it. For example, how much do you value:

  • Family movie and game nights
  • Slumber parties and teen gaming tournaments
  • Super Bowl and other sports parties
  • A private space to work out
  • Extra space for frequent visitors


No matter what type of finished basement you envision, FD Building Co. is here to help. We’re experienced in navigating local and county rules, restrictions, and permits. And we have access to highly qualified professionals who understand the special plumbing, electrical, and structural requirements a basement remodel calls for. Things like lighting, heating, ventilation, and moisture prevention which are different from other areas in the home.

All Great Basement Remodels Start with Design

A finished basement provides living space without changing a home’s existing footprint. In many homes, the lower level is sorely underutilized. You know it’s a lot of square footage but may be unable to envision what it could become.

Typically used for storage, laundry facilities, and bulky hot water heaters and HVAC systems, most basements don’t make the most efficient use of square footage. We work with you to explore all possible options so that your remodeled basement reaches its full potential.

From a design point of view, an unused basement is a beautiful blank slate, an expansive area just waiting to be transformed into whatever you desire. Our goal is to help Long Island homeowners create the space they’ve always dreamed of, a room or rooms that blend seamlessly with the rest of their home. That means designing a functional layout that incorporates all intended uses.

Our Custom Basement Remodeling Process

Remodeling the basement is similar to remodeling other rooms in your home, with some special technical considerations and several additional steps. Before we start designing, we check for possible water damage or other moisture-related issues. We also make sure the exterior ground is graded away from the foundation. And we examine the foundation walls for cracks and, if found, make sure any damage is repaired before work begins.

We consider every basement remodeling project we do to be an honor. As we work to design and build your new lower level, we keep these important goals top-of-mind:

  • Best possible financial and personal return on investment
  • Unparalleled professional customer service
