Case Study on Basement Remodel in the South Hills

South Hills Basement Remodel

Davis Construction prides ourselves on the job we do in our Pittsburgh community. We live and work in our community, and customer satisfaction is our highest priority. A good example of our skill set is this Case Study of a basement that we recently remodeled in the South Hills. It has been difficult to imagine the basement as it was, when the project first started, back in July. This remodel I a great example of the work that Davis Construction can do.

Located in a close-knit community in the South Hills region of Pittsburgh, this basement remodel took place in the home of a family that originally built their house about 20 years ago. The family consists of a college age student, a 13-year-old, and the parents.

Originally, the basement was split in the middle by a half-wall. One side was for the family dog, who has since passed away. The other side was a playroom for the children whom have grown up and are no longer interested in a playroom. There were stick-and-peel floors, a drop ceiling, and painted cinder block walls.

The area needed refurbished. The family envisioned an entirely new space for socializing. The idea began with opening the space and getting rid of that center wall. Getting rid of the clutter in the basement. Add a nice billiard room. Not only did we do these things that were part of the family vision, Davis went above and beyond.

We added a vented gas fireplace, with custom oak mantle. There is a sleek 8’ wet bar that has been added for entertaining and boy, is it beautiful! Granite counter tops, a dishwasher, and a beverage counter finish this area off.


Your basement can be a great way to add a significant area of usable space while adding to your home’s value.
