Finished Basement/Basement Remodeling in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess County, NY
The concept of a basement originated with root cellars; food was stored in these cellars before refrigeration was available, as they were located underground, where it’s cooler. Over time, the basement became a place to store seasonal clothes and less-frequently-used items out of sight. Today, though, many homeowners choose to make use of their basements, converting the area for a variety of uses, and adding usable space and value to their homes.

Your Finished Basement Project Requires Expert Knowledge
The choice to finish your basement is one that will enhance your home and, potentially, its value. However, this can be a complicated project that requires knowledge of the systems and structure of your home. Certain items that might need to be addressed include:
- Moisture protection
- Insulation needs
- Egress requirements
- Ventilation needs
- Fire safety necessities
What’s more, the above requirements, along with the use of the space, will dictate the materials that can be used to complete the project. When you consult with Quality Renovation on your finished basement project, we’ll ask you several questions to help us provide the options that best fit the use of the space. A few of these questions might be:
- What is the intended purpose of this new space?
- Which types of walls are best for this purpose? Wallboard, plaster, or paneling?
- Which type of ceiling is best for the new basement space? A suspended (drop) ceiling, or plaster?
- What about flooring materials? Is cement, carpet, hardwood or laminate the best option?
