If you want to add more space to your DC metropolitan area home without building an addition, basement remodeling is a viable option. Basement remodeling is a smart way to reap the benefits of unused space that already exists in your home. Basements, particularly cramped and dreary basements, can be put to better use as playrooms, home offices, guest rooms, exercise studios, and more.
Whether it’s used for parking or storage of sports equipment, a garage is a practical luxury and its benefits are many. For those of us who park our cars in a garage, escape from bad weather is one of the best benefits! In the winter, your car is warmer and you never have to deal with frosty windows or snowy windshields. In the tight parking areas we’re so familiar with in Washington, DC, a garage certainly guarantees you won’t have to spend time searching for a spot on the street. Rarely used back porches are also great for space reconfiguration.
The attic holds a lot of potential for livable space if you need more room in your home but don’t want to build an addition or move away. Converting your attic into a livable room is not only an excellent way to expand space but may also be possible at a reasonable cost! The Wentworth team has experience converting different types of attics and will make sure no detail is overlooked.
If you love your neighborhood but your beloved home no longer fits your needs or has enough space to accommodate your growing family, moving is not the only option. Often, when your home isn’t functioning the way you need it to, space reconfiguration or a whole house renovation may be the best solution to get what you need without having to put up a “for sale” sign.
Remodeling a historic home requires not only sensitivity towards the original design and the architectural history but also an understanding of the logistics involved with obtaining approvals for remodeling a home in a historic district. Over the years, the Wentworth remodeling contractors have gained extensive knowledge of the zoning, building codes and historic materials necessary to ensure any historic home remodeling project runs smoothly and produces a truly seamless final result.
A lot of people wish to stay at home throughout their maturing years, and with aging-in-place design, staying at home as long as possible is an easy reality. Aging in place refers to living in your home safely, comfortably, and independently no matter your age or ability level. According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), the majority of homeowners want to age in place. Our home remodel company can help you fulfill that wish.
Frequently Asked Remodeling Questions
Is it cheaper to remodel or build a new house?
Unless there is exceptional damage or deterioration to the structural elements of the home, including the foundation, it is typically more cost-effective to remodel than it is to build a new house.
In what order should you renovate a house?
A house renovation typically follows this order:
- Structural and Safety Concerns – Foundation repairs, roof repairs or replacement, and damaged siding and/or window repair or replacement to prevent water penetration.
- Demolition – Tearing down and disposal of structure and materials.
- Rebuilding – Addition of new walls, beams, doorways, and window frames.
- Electrical, Plumbing, and HVAC – Installation of utilities and HVAC equipment while the walls are open.
- Insulation and Drywall – Insulation installation in walls, attic, and ceilings, and walls finished with drywall.

What are the steps in remodeling a house?
- Consultation – The initial consultation takes place in your home in order to view the space and determine your goals for the remodel.
