Basement Remodeling in Martinsburg
One of the easiest ways to expand your home – and add immediate value to it – is by taking advantage of an often overlooked and underutilized space: the basement. We offer a wide variety of basement and lower level design and remodeling solutions. Today’s homeowners are reimagining their basements like never before. Lower levels are often perfect for adding an entertainment room, guest bedroom, home gym or office, and even a wine cellar. Many homeowners also choose to split the usually substantial amount of square footage up to accommodate more than one of these ideas.
Done right, a lower level can become the most popular area in your home, a place for family and friends to gather for good times or for a little rest and relaxation. At DuPaul Construction, we’ve designed and remodeled some of the most stylish basements in the Martinsburg, WV area. We’ve transformed many unused spaces into comfortable and functional living spaces, and we can do the same for you!

Our Basement Remodeling Process
From design to construction, we handle every aspect of your basement remodel. Your complete satisfaction is our top priority. Some of the basement finishing services we offer include:
- Ceiling and drywall installation
- Flooring/Carpet Installation Framing
- Plumbing & Electric
Over our more than 30 years in business, we’ve honed our basement remodeling process into an efficient, cost-effective procedure. We start by discussing your vision for the space. After looking at your basement, we discuss materials, fixtures, finishes, and any other products or services required. Our design team then uses your ideas to come up with a design that reflects what you have in mind.
While the process for remodeling a basement is much like remodeling any other room in your home, there are a few additional steps. Before the design stage, we check inside your lower level for any possible water issues, and outside to make sure the ground is graded away from your home’s foundation. We also look for foundation wall cracks and repair any we find before the work begins. We also confirm local codes and permit regulations, particularly for plumbing and electrical work which will need to be inspected.
One of the key components to our remodeling process is open and honest communication. We believe it’s the only way to deliver a finished room you love and an experience that is a positive one from start to finish. That includes frank discussions on budget and scheduling. We take the time to explain all your options and what effect each one will have on your budget. This helps avoid any misunderstandings or disappointments and makes for a smooth and successful remodel.
This process is part of every remodel, renovation, or home construction project we do. Why? It’s essential to providing a comprehensive package to you that ensures you know exactly what you’re paying for before any work begins. We also schedule the work around your schedule, not a construction schedule. That gives you the time you need to weigh all your cost vs. benefit options and make informed decisions about the overall scope of the project.
