Depending on the starting point, the desired purpose of the finished basement, and what needs to be done, basement finishing can be either a simple or a more involved construction project.
If you consult with GR Renovations’ experts, you can better determine the work that should be done to transform the basement into a functional space.
A basement remodel is a project that involves more intensive renovation services compared to basement finishing. It may include the addition of a bathroom, walls, a separate entrance, and more.
The remodel typically transforms the basement into a usable space for the home. It may cover the whole basement area or just a small section depending on the budget, intended purpose, and the available space.
You can overhaul your basement to maximize its use and enhance its image.
If the existing walls are unattractive and dull, you can lay a better flooring material such as PVC or ceramic, install a classy faucet, install new tiles, or even install new counter-tops.
All the installations and fittings will ideally help transform the look of the basement and make it more attractive.
Basements almost always lack proper insulation like the rest of the house. It is the reason why basements often feel cold and damp, especially during winter.
One of the most important services that GR Renovations can help you with is the insulation of basement flooring and walls. The types of insulation available for you to choose from include spray foam, Styrofoam, and fiberglass.
Basements are often prone to moisture.
If the basement in your home is not looking too good, you may have to overhaul the drainage system through the installation of new pipes and the re-plastering of the walls to seal any cracks.
If there’s any potential source of leakage such as an old sink, you can replace it with a good one. Doing this will ultimately make it easier to live in the basement.
The floor and walls of your basement should be sealed using the right sealing materials to prevent leakage.
You can even use heating systems to maintain dryness especially if you live in an area with high humidity in the basement.

If your basement is poorly lit or does not allow in more light then it may be necessary to remove and expand window sizes to accommodate more light.
Our basement renovation experts can help you with this regard. It is also possible to improve the illumination using the right lighting fixtures to increase the brightness.
The light should ideally be balanced throughout the room so that no shades or shadows are created in the room.
