Total Basement Finishing of Connecticut Case Studies: Basement Finishing in Monroe, CT
This basement located in Monroe, CT had plenty usable space, but was completely unfinished. At the time, this basement was only used for storage and was a cold, and underappreciated part of the house. Once the homeowner had realized its potential and figured it was time for the basement to be finished, a call was made to Total Basement Finishing. Our sales representative, Vincent Orsini was able to inspect the basement as well as listen to what the homeowners wanted the basement to eventually look like. After making a plan and mapping out how to turn this basement into something special, a TBF team was put together and ready to completely upgrade the look of this basement.
With a project set to be completed, our team figured out which of the TBF solutions would be best used to make a beautiful basement and staying in the homeowners price range. All of the installations and solutions that were decided upon included the following: Everlast wall panels, ThermalDry flooring tiles, a baseboard heating system, an electrical system, ceiling linen, and a new door with a frame. All of these solutions would prove essential in creating this complete transformation of the basement.
To begin, our crew initially wanted to get the electrical system implemented in order for them to then build the rest of the basement around the system. Along with the electrical system came the baseboard heating system. At a fair price, our team also added a heating system which the basement did not previously have. With the addition of this, the homeowner's memory of his cold basement were soon to be forgotten. Once the electrical system and baseboard heating system were installed, the more noticeable changes began to occur. To begin, Everlast walls panels were attached to the wall framing and quickly covered up the bland concrete walls. These was do not allow excess water to enter from the basement walls and are remarkably appealing to the eye. White Ceiling tiles were also put up to cover the framing of the floor above it as well as the many messy looking wires.
As for the flooring, ThermalDry flooring tiles were installed throughout the entire basement floor. With these tiles, they capture any excess water vapor from under them and disallow them from coming up through the floor and eventually causing the vapor to evaporate, which proves beneficial when trying to avoid any excess water or water damage in a basement. These tiles by themselves also keep the ground 5 to 10 degrees warmer than the old concrete floor could. After properly covering the entire basement floor, the concrete was no longer observable and the entire look of the basement had improved greatly. With the largest parts of finishing the basement completed, all that was left were the installations of the outlets, jacks, light bulbs, and smoke alarms.
With professional and timely working done by our TBF crew, this basement had gone from nothing more than a storage unit to an appealing area that gave the homeowner many possibilities as to what to do next with his new and improved basement. After this large project was completed, the homeowner showed an immense amount of gratefulness and was thrilled with the outcome.
