More Tips to Help with Your Basement Remodel
Basements are the breeders of materials that can be dangerous for anyone to come into contact with. Things such as asbestos and lead paint are seen often in older homes. Our construction team can help you identify the substances that are unsafe for your home, and we can figure out solutions on how to keep your home safe and healthy. If you have a newer home, or you are getting one built brand new, this is something you shouldn’t be so concerned with. Our team will always make sure you Baltimore home is in good hands.
Be Mindful of Future Projects
If you know in the future you may renovate your kitchen or bathroom, start the process early. The basement is usually the hub for all types of hidden wires and piping that helps your house function. You wouldn’t want to have to pick apart your new basement to remodel other rooms in the home. Make sure you’re running waste lines into the basement now, or run electrical circuits while you are doing your remodel. We think this is best practice, so you won’t have to go back in and do it at a later time.
If you are trying to create a space for entertaining your friends, your children, or even a separate apartment, it is essential to make sure you install noise reducing elements. Our construction team can install insulation in the ceiling to prevent the transfer of noise. Sound easily will travel through the walls and into the drywall. RC Channel, which is a long piece of metal, can be put in place on the joists before the drywall. This will help dissipate noise immensely.
Your home is something that showcases your style and aesthetic. Now, you must make a decision of if you want the basement to fit into that same theme as the rest of the house, or to create a design that is completely different. You can incorporate elements to tie the designs together if you are wanting a change. Using similar trims and paint colors can help you get a different feeling from the basement, but have it still fit into the overall style of your Baltimore home.
