Gone are the days of Wood Paneling and Drop Tile ceilings with that musty odour that all basements use to have.
Today’s basements are built to feel like any other room in your home and can become the heart of your home.
Today we are using our basements for:
Spas and Saunas
Finished storage rooms and Cedar closets
In the modern basement, we insulate and vapour barrier all exterior walls and outlets to create an envelope, thus stopping air drafts and preventing cold zones that cause mold to form behind walls. We sound proof Home Theaters and professionally install all of the wiring. Home Gyms can have wall mounted TV's with surround sound stereo systems. We can install dedicated electrical to keep your gym equipment from interfering with your expensive home theater equipment.
Today we install “subfloors” to keep our finished floors dry and comfortable. We install Gas or Electric Fireplaces to keep it warm and we install adequate lighting to make it bright. Today’s’ most popular choice for lighting is pot lighting. It adds a very crisp bright light that doesn't make it feel like a basement but rather an extension of your home.
Once you see the benefits, you can see that finishing your basement is the most cost effective way to increase the living space of your home. Generally finishing a basement does not interfere with your daily life as most if not all of the construction materials can be brought in through a basement window eliminating traffic through your finished space.
