Your Basement has HUGE Potential!

Your basement is a huge space. Rather than leaving it to accumulate mold, dust and experience water damage, you can decide to transform it into an amazing living space through efficient basement finishing procedures. This improves and maintains its structural integrity, prevents some health issues and also offers you rest of mind knowing that your basement is protected from any future water damage.

TIP: If you are building a new home and plan to finish the basement at a later date then have the builders rough in the plumbing.  This will save you some money when you decide to finish the basement.

Quality Living Spaces

When you make your basement livable, you give yourself an entirely new floor where you can incorporate great living spaces.  Here are a couple of ideas:

  • home gyms
  • extra bedrooms
  • playrooms
  • wet bars
  • home theaters
  • game rooms

Just like every other room in your main house, you can have it in your basement when finished. In addition, this adds value to your home whenever you put it up for sale.  In a two story house it can increase the livable square footage by 33%.

Sealing and Protecting

Even if you are not looking to add more living space to your home, consider the safety of your valuable items in the basement. Leaving photo albums, clothing and valuable family heirlooms like, old photos and antiques that have been passed down from one generation to the other in a basement that is at risk for water damage is simply a way to have them destroyed. Most of these items cannot be replaced when damaged or destroyed by water, and the ability to keep them in a mold-free and waterproof place is enough as a benefit. With basement finishing, you would not have to worry about your items being destroyed by mold or flood.

Basement Finishing Process

Brainstorm ideas

Don’t just settle on the first idea that comes to mind.  If you are determined to have a man cave then maybe you can create a space that resembles a man cave but also includes an extra bedroom or home theater.  A well designed space can be multi-functional. Have some fun and take a few hours to browse finished basement ideas online.

Create a general Floor Plan

You don’t necessarily have to have an architect draw up your plans.  You can sketch them up or do them using computer software.  We can take you ideas and create construction documents if needed.  If there are electrical or plumbing requirements we will need plans to submit to the local municipality.  They will have to inspect the project and make sure the work is done to the local code.

Building Process

We will then use the plans and work on the following in the order of:

  1. Framing
  2. Plumbing
  3. Electrical (including considerations for entertainment)
  4. Drywall
  5. Trim
  6. Painting
  7. Flooring
  8. Doors
  9. Hardware
