It is important that you and your contractor discuss the particulars before any installation has begun. Although our contractors know exactly what to do in the area we serve, we want you to be aware of the stipulations as well.
  • Accentuate the positive areas of your basement - Your basement may not offer much natural light to let into the space, but perhaps the amount of floor space offers plenty of design potential.
