Basement Finishing System Unlimited panels are breathable and won’t trap moisture, reducing the chances of rot and mold growth.
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. Like you said the walls are already there. Owens corning puts out a great basement refinishing product that is easy to install if you can handle a tape measure and skill saw. Most wet basements can be cured by installing a sump pump ans sealing the walls with a product that goes on like paint, both available at Lowes or home depot for under 500.00.

We went with Buck Buckley’s Total Basement Finishing because we were impressed with the product and we felt that it was superior to drywall when it comes to dealing with moisture. By looking at the finished product, you would never know that it is not drywall and it looks great. Buck and the crew did an outstanding job and they were great at letting you know where they were in the process along the way.

I’m starting big with the most complicated, most expensive, most functionally significant portion of the remodel – replacing the shower faucet. As I mentioned in a previous post , the tub/shower handles have been a real pain for some time. They are hard to turn, and it’s difficult to make small adjustments so that the water isn’t too cold or too hot (and that’s when the cold water isn’t turning itself off). I have previously replaced the faucet stems, but it was only a temporary fix because they wore out after a couple of years. The long-term solution is to replace the valve inside the wall. For that, I need a plumber… and that’s why this will be the most expensive portion of the remodel.

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
To say I’m in love is an understatement. As I mentioned in my first post , this was actually completed 2 years ago, and I can say today that I walk in every morning and still love it. Maybe living in an ugly, unfinished bathroom for 3 years has that effect!
Tile is another material that you touch and feel each day. While you can find quality options for $5 per square foot, super cut-rate tiles may have slight size inconsistencies. The results will be crooked lines that make a bathroom look shoddy. I’d also bought a piece of ceiling tile back in March. I gave one square off to give to Callie and painted the other one blue to match the ruffles on the shower curtain. I turned up the corners with pliers and used glued a metal flower to the middle (to echo the flower on the window … Read More
How often do you see a filthy spa bathroom with a mildewed ceiling? If spa owners let their bathrooms deteriorate like that, they certainly won’t receive many customers. No matter how spacious or well-decorated your bathroom is, it will not become a true place to relax unless it is sparkling clean. So the first step of creating a bathroom spa is to make everything look spotless. Pay extra attention to all the corners and hard-to-reach spots. Throw away old bottles of shampoo and soap that have been sitting there untouched for ages.

Hellooo friends. After seven months of hard work, a few DIY projects, lots of design work and hours and hours of tiling, we’re finally done with the Master Bathroom and here to show off the final photos and sourcing details.
Many tubs and showers have ceramic tile on the walls. If so a special drill bit must be used to drill the mounting holes for your new panel as a regular bit will at best do nothing and will more likely crack the tile and ruin it. Just slip them on and slide into all those small spaces that mops can’t go! Perfect if you only have a small area that needs to be cleaned. They are available for men or women and feature various colors.
