Comparing the Owens Corning™ Basement System Cost with Above Ground Construction
If you’re considering installing an Owens Corning™ basement system, cost is likely one of your biggest concerns. As with any home remodeling project, electing to finish a basement is a major decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. You want to make sure that your new basement will meet your needs and look great for the years to come without breaking the bank. The problem is that traditional methods of basement remodeling can be time-consuming, dirty, and potentially very expensive. The Owens Corning™ Basement Finishing System™, on the other hand, offers some significant advantages over above-ground additions and can end up being an excellent investment into your home.
For starters, the Owens Corning™ Basement Finishing System™, on average, costs less per square foot than above ground construction. Plus, adding onto the home is a major construction project that often requires a big team of contractors, can take several weeks or even months to complete, and can create a dusty mess throughout the process. A Basement Finishing System™, meanwhile, can be installed in about two weeks and doesn’t involve dusty drywall and other traditional building materials. It’s also important to consider the components used in Owens Corning™ basement systems as opposed to traditional building materials, such as drywall and wood. For example, the Owens Corning™ Basement Finishing System™ is:
- Designed specifically for basement environments
- Mold and mildew resistant*
- Easily cleaned with soap and water
- Designed to boast near studio-quality acoustics, as the walls absorb up to 95 percent of sound
- Fire resistant, owning an industry-leading Class-A fire rating
- Dent-resistant with regular use
