Basements are a common element in many Wichita homes. Some are attractive and functional, others are simply studs and concrete, and still others are dark, gloomy spaces that haven’t been updated in decades. If you want to finish or update your home’s basement, trust Strategic Remodel for a custom design that will exceed your expectations. We’re a licensed general contractor experienced with all aspects of basement finishing and remodeling.
An unfinished basement is a blank canvas offering endless possibilities. Strategic Remodel can design and build a finished basement customized to look and function the way you want it to. We can finish the entire basement or just one room. Our basement finishing services include framing interior walls, running electrical and plumbing lines, hanging drywall, installing light fixtures and flooring, painting and more.
Your finished basement could include elements such as:
- TV/lounge area
- Built-in shelving

- Home office
- Workout space
- Craft room
- Finished laundry room
Drywall is the most common building material for walls in Wichita homes. It comes in heavy sheets consisting of gypsum plaster sandwiched between paper sheets. Mold and mildew resistant drywall is used in bathrooms and other areas that are exposed to water. Drywall is typically sold in 8 ft x 4 ft sizes, making them difficult for the average homeowner to maneuver into a home, particularly if stairs are involved.
Working with drywall is a messy and dusty process. The boards must be cut and hung, and then the seams must be mudded, taped and sanded before primer and paint can be applied. Whether you need to replace old drywall, finish the walls in an entire basement or just patch a few holes, Strategic Remodel has the tools and experience to make quick work of any drywall project. We take precautions to contain dust as much as possible, and we clean our work area when we’re done. Finishing options for drywall include texture, priming and painting.
Tired of your outdated basement? Strategic Remodel can help. If the floor plan’s not working for you, we can move walls to create space for a pool table, play area, or even an additional bathroom. Replace paneled walls with drywall for a dramatic update and add recessed lighting to brighten the space while maintaining and open feel. Worn flooring can be replaced with carpet, tile, luxury vinyl plank, wood laminate or even stained concrete. Cabinets and shelves can be added for areas that lack storage. Add an electric fireplace for comfort and a wet bar for convenience. Whatever your vision for your basement, we’ll bring it to life.
