Our Process Overview

Every home is unique and every basement requires special attention, but we believe that you should be aware of the overall process. Our team knows that you should be kept in the loop so that you can communicate what you want to us properly, and we want to make sure that you are exceptionally satisfied with the work that we do for you.

Here is an overview of the basement finishing process:
  • The First Pass: We begin the process by checking your basement for any obvious issues and fixing them immediately. For example, if there are drips or pools of water then our team will act immediately to minimize the risk of dampness and mildew in your home and to prevent any future problems.
  • Moisture Protection: Next, we add a vapour barrier to the floor and the walls, and we create an offset space with metal or wood furring strips. This is a proactive measure that will protect the framing and finishing from suffering damage due to moisture infiltration into the basement. This measure can save you hundreds of dollars in water damage repair in the future.
  • High-Quality Insulation: Then, we insulate the walls and the floor. This step is very important because it keeps your basement warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Not only is this a matter of convenience, but it can save you huge amounts of money on your heating and cooling bill. We use top-quality insulating material, and we thoroughly train our team to make sure you can get the most out of this step.
  • Framing: Lastly, we are ready to start framing the basement. We make sure we pay special attention to obstructions like posts, beams, and heating ducts and pipes so that they will blend in smoothly with their surroundings when we are done. You will also find that you will still have easy access to things like electrical junction boxes, plumbing shutoffs, and clean-outs, but we will conceal the openings so that they do not stand out.
