Finishing Basement Ideas

A finished basement by the Biehl Brothers can transform your seldom-used basement into a lively space that the whole family can enjoy. Whether you are looking to add an extra bedroom or fun recreational space for relaxing, let the Biehl Brothers team finish your basement.

You may wonder, is there any benefit to consider basement remodeling? Well, isn’t it comfy to get some more space in your home without the expense of a major construction? Since exterior walls and floor is already in place, basement remodeling can increase the living space in your home extensively without spending much. Other utilities such as electricity, water, gas and sewer lines are normally close at hand, which reduces cost as well. You’ll be delighted to know that basements does not require as much heating and cooling cost as other parts of the house.

With frame and flange installation, the old window unit is completely removed and replaced with a new and complete window unit. The new window is installed by nailing through an attached nailing flange into the existing window (rough) opening. This method is used when interior and exterior trim need to be replaced due to rot or other damage or the consumer wants an overall more integral window and wall application; it does require more time and expense however.

Finishing a basement ceiling can be a challenge as more than likely, you will need to work around duct, plumbing and electrical work, all while trying to maintain a comfortable room height. A qualified contractor may be able to reroute some of this hardware, but you will more likely lose some headroom to accommodate these fixtures in your finished basement.

However, I do want to qualify this with one stipulation. If, and that’s a big IF, you are not going to use the basement as a livable space and more of a storage area that you don’t really plan to do any form of entertaining or playing in, then you could save yourself a few bucks and paint the floor. Other than that, there are way to many nicer options out there for you.
