Basement Remodeling Video
Basement remodeling is a great project to add space to your home. When first starting, be sure to check for cracks in the floor or foundation. Some areas have problems with Radon gas. Patch these cracks before processing.
Second, allow about an inch between the basement walls and your wall studs. This will allow for the uneven foundation walls and any concrete lumps at the corner of the wall and floor. This will allow you to make nice square walls.
Finally, try to align your vertical studs with the overhead studs or floor joists. This will make it easier on the HVAC installation people, plumbers and the electricians. They can run their ducts, pipes and wiring easier.
These are just a few tips to get you started on your basement remodeling project. Remember safety first and keep it plumb, level and square.
