Kind Words from Our Customers
We had a main bathroom that needed attention, as well as an outdated entry way and powder room. John from RH Homes met with us, arranged for us to meet with suppliers for plumbing and tile, and we were on our way to a new home. John was responsive to my questions, gave me updates on the timeline, and overall did a fabulous job on our home remodeling project. I would recommend John and RH Homes without hesitation.
L. Wade | Worthington
We are delighted with our kitchen remodeling. Over the course of a year we removed a wall, redid the lighting and put in new cabinets and counters. John worked with us to accomplish the result in stages, that made it manageable and comfortable. We would heartily recommend him to all.
V. Miles | Canal Winchester
The team was very professional and great to work with. Listened to my requests and did a great job of following up on each item. Scheduled around my own needs such as moving in, completing work before company arrived, etc. Very high customer service. Any time I brought up issues or made changes, they addressed very quickly. I was very pleased with work and enjoyed working with the team on my home remodeling project.

How much does a basement remodel cost?
Basement remodels cost $10,000 on average and typically between $12,241 and $33,154. Expect to pay anywhere from $30 to $75 per square foot for basement remodeling costs. Basement upgrades increase your home’s value by about 70% of your investment.
What is the most expensive part of basement finishing?
Finishing a basement typically involves adding walls, flooring, electricity, and lighting so the basement is more usable space.
Flooring and wall coverings like paneling or shiplap are the biggest expenses, making up approximately 15% of the total cost to finish a 1,200 square-foot basement. Plumbing and electricity are next, at around 14% and 11% of the cost, respectively, while interior carpentry needs — like trim and railings — account for about 10%. The remaining costs may include things like drywall and insulation, cabinets and countertops, painting, and even clean-up.
Exact costs will vary depending on basement size, whether extra features like a bathroom or wet bar are included. This is assuming your unfinished basement is in good condition.
It’s important to have your basement inspected for foundation and drainage issues before finishing. If an inspection reveals water damage or the risk of water seepage, basement waterproofing and possibly foundation repair will likely add to the cost.

Is a finished basement worth the cost?
A finished basement can increase your property’s value by 70%. While a basement does not add to the overall square footage of the house, that fact is usually beside the point for homeowners. A finished basement will often function as an informal family room or living room, office, playroom, or guest room. If a bathroom is in the basement, many homeowners will renovate the space to be an in-law suite. Real estate in Columbus Ohio is hot and adding a finished basement, along with any other home improvements you make, will often give you more leverage when negotiating a price for your home.
