Basement Finishing Systems

July 30th, 2009

In many homes, the basement is a cold, dark storage space with concrete floors that’s more than a little bit spooky.  But with today’s basement finishing systems, it’s possible to transform this scary area into a warm and welcoming place as bright as any room upstairs.  Basement finishing works like adding another livable level to your home—in as little as two weeks.  Think romper room, a buffered place for the kids to play, with lots of space for toys, games and musical instruments.  Or think game room, with a pool table, ping-pong, darts, and maybe a bar.  In a few easy steps, a finished basement will add massive value to your home.

In general, basement finishing systems consist of wall, ceiling, floor and window materials, on top of the labor.  Unlike drywall, where bacteria thrives, modern finishing systems are moisture, mold and mildew-resistant.  Still, if your basement leaks water, you must have it fixed before the finishing process.  The systems are made to withstand high humidity, but they are not waterproof.
