Once the basement is clear, we can get started on the work on fixed structures such as windows and staircases. We usually start by getting the basement stairs ready for finishing so they're ready to accept the basement walls when we install them.
If basement windows, egress windows, or basement window wells are included in your finishing project, we like to install these first as well, so we know how much space we'll need to allocate for the walls.
If you haven't heard about our basement window wells, be sure to ask us! They're a small addition that can make a big difference by maximizing natural sunlight in your finished space!
Our first step in installing our basement walls is the fire blocking. Our basement wall system has a Class A fire rating, which is the best there is!
Next, we customize our walls to work with the windows and create wire channels for electrical outlets and light switches. Finally, the finished basement doors are installed on the closets and between rooms.
For a clean installation, we either cut our basement wall systems outdoors, or we cut them indoors with a vacuum and saw combination, which helps reduce dust potential. Let us do the work for you, call us today for a free basement finishing estimate in Newark.
First, we box out the girders and beams to accept our wireframes, and we plan your basement ceiling to work around vents and obstacles. We like to install the crown molding for our ceiling tiles before actually hanging the dropped ceiling. Lastly, before installing the tiles themselves, we make sure all basement lighting is in place.
*Our basement ceiling tiles include a 30-year warranty against sagging and mold, so you can count on them to stay beautiful for a very long time.
Once the walls and ceiling are installed, we can sweep up and install your finished flooring. All of our basement flooring options are installed without grout or adhesives and are ready to use the minute they're installed. If you have an uneven floor, we will often use a one-mil underlayment, to help dampen any noise.
At Total Basement Finishing by Proper Home Improvements, we never forgo the finishing touches. We have several designs for base trim and casing for your walls and doors.
Additionally, many of our homeowners request special finishing touches in their home, such as shelving, TV mounts, or mounted wall lights.
Every basement we finish is a unique creation, made especially by the homeowner to fit exactly what they want.
Our job is never over until your basement is sparkling clean and ready to use. After the installation is complete, we give the space a once-over, making sure that all dust and debris is out of your newly-finished space.
We'll take care of the removal of any debris or old material that came from your previous basement remodeling so you can start enjoying your space right away.
