Taking an unfinished basement and turning it into a finished room for your home seems daunting, but the team at Elite Remodeling knows exactly how to get you what you want from your project.
Thanks for this informational Hub. I am planning on having a basement remodel soon, and some of the estimates I have received are crazy when you look at the fine print. It amazes me what some of these people find to be ethical and moral in terms of seemingly shady practices. If you have plenty of space, purchase a folding table or include an integrated counter to serve as a folding station. This way, clothes can be folded as soon as they are removed from the dryer. A folding station can also be used for sweaters that require flat drying. This looked fine with the painted ceiling rafters and the room now has that loft look … Read More
Deciding to purchase replacement windows for your home is a big deal. The cost can be quite high depending on what style and type of window you choose. So knowing the correct questions to ask is not only important, but essential for the wallet.
Brighter colors are the name of the game here as children in general love them. Nor should you limit the paint; older dressers can be painted and given a new life. One parent painted an thirty year old dresser in white and metallic blue automotive paint in a beautiful bedroom makeover. This is the cleanest and most time effective method since there is no actual rebuilding of the window opening or refinishing the interior. With this method, the exterior trim pieces (the brick molding and sill) are wrapped in a weatherproof vinyl or aluminum cladding and then sealed. Me either, Simone. Right now all I have … Read More

Well researched article, I believe the numbers are true for the homeowner that has to hire a contractor to do the work but not for a home owner with a little time and a little do-it-yourself skill.

If you’re not going to be in the home long, you might not want to go to the trouble and cost of adding insulation to walls and ceilings. If that’s the case, at least insulate any pipes in uninsulated exterior walls and ceilings. Use pipe insulation that has a split in it. The kind with self-sealing seams is the best and the easiest to use. This type of pipe insulation can be easily cut to fit your pipes. Before purchasing pipe insulation, measure the diameter of your pipes to make sure … Read More

After application, you need to cleanup by sweeping away any leftover stain and residue with a broom after flooding the floor with water. It is always a good idea to shop vac the water so as to get the residue up and out of the pores of the concrete and make it a little easier for the stain to get into the pores. When the floor is thoroughly dry, it is a good idea to apply a sealer agent … Read More

Now. What is the cost of a basement for you? Well…. That depends. I have some information below that will help you figure that out.
Plans were soon underway to convert the attic into a studio. It was decided that two small dormers with window seats on the east side of the attic would let in lots of morning light, and the one large dormer facing west on the opposite side of the attic was quickly expanded to become a walkout to a small private balcony. We design and build premium home bars for nationwide delivery. Contact us TODAY to begin your bar project!

She was calling to let me know that she had been featured in another hubbers hub, Cleaning for Company” by Brett Winn Awesome! Now I am shooting over to read that hub for some inspiration. Humor is not kicking in, followed by a lack of topics. I am in need of some serious help here. We chat a bit more, before Mom hints that she wants me to proof” her next upcoming hub. (My grammar sucks, so I don’t see how I can be of any help, but I will give it my best shot.) Before long, we hang up and I am still hung up as to what to write. Then I see this weeks inspiration topic…Easy Home Improvement Ideas.

Have big dreams for your basement? Here’s what you need to know to turn your basement ideas into a beautiful living space.
The design of having two arches on your front facade is very striking. While not always feasable for a remodeling project, a great design idea for building. The example to the right does a triple play with the two arches and then the added columns – great exterior design! A number of factors contribute to the overall expense of a basement remodel. Be sure to evaluate the condition of your basement and talk with your contractor about how its features or limitations relate to selecting appropriate materials and performing prep work for your renovation. What about an apoxy garage floor coating in the basement? My friend just got that done and loves it!
