Basement Remodeling

Whether finished or unfinished, a basement often feels like a blank slate. The essential spaces of your home are all upstairs, so you can feel free to truly transform your basement into the exact space you want. Basements can add a tremendous amount of usable square footage to your home to enhance your lifestyle. Here are some basement remodeling dreams that we can make happen for you:

  • Entertainment:  Create an inviting space for you to entertain friends and family in a whole new way.  You could add a bar, a games room, an art studio or something uniquely you.
  • Media:  From watching the game to playing the game, a media space can bring a thrill to your home.
  • Rental space:  Gaining passive income from renting can be a huge asset to your home.
  • Home office:  Those who work from home know just how precious their own dedicated space can be.
  • Kids play area:  Let the kids burn off some steam in a space that is just for them to make a mess in. 
  • Teenager hang-out space:  If your children have outgrown a “playroom”, adjusting the space to their new needs is a great idea.
  • Gym:  Finally have the room for all of your gym equipment with a dedicated space.

Our dedicated design and remodeling experts will turn your basement into your dream space.

Our scheduling is honest and clear, so you know how long you’ll be out of your home and when you’ll be able to move back in. We know that , remodeling can be disruptive to your life. We work hard to keep our timelines short and keep the schedule updated to reflect reality. 
  • Communication:  We will always keep you up to date on the progress of your project so that you feel like you’re in the loop at all times.

  • Actual care:  We care about how the process is for you, and how you feel about our company and your home when it’s over.

Professional and Courteous


I am very satisfied with my basement remodel. The new space looks amazing and has proved to be incredibly useful. Although we are happy to have our house back, we did enjoy all ReCraft employees and sub-contractors and found them to be professional and courteous. We have already recommended ReCraft to friends looking to remodel and we would definitely use them again in the future.

What Makes A Good Basement Remodeling Company?

While a basement is full of possibilities, it often starts out as a place that homeowners don’t want to spend much time in. It could be damp, cold, and dark. The best basement remodeling companies know how to correct these issues and make the space more comfortable. Here are some other signs you’ve chosen a good company:

  • Experience:  The company has experience remodeling basements and has pictures of their work available for you to check out. Ideally, they understand the special considerations that basements in Portland require.
  • Style sense:  While the basic companies work in the same style, talented companies can adjust to the style that their client wants. If you see multiple styles in the company’s portfolio, this is a good sign.
  • Communication:  The best companies will always be upfront about timeline specifics, changes to material availability, and anything else that will affect your basement remodel.

We hired ReCraft in 2016/2017 for our basement remodel. I'm a year behind in my review! We had an excellent experience working with Mike and his crew - Jon, Justin, Ivy and Isabella, to name a few. Every time we go into the basement we're reminded of the high quality work and service ReCraft provided. A high bar has been set for any other contractors we hire in the future!
