Planning a Basement Renovation on Long Island
With some good planning and techniques, you can turn your basement into a wide range of areas. An extra living room, an entertainment center, a bar/game room, or even an extra room for the kids. The possibilities are almost endless, it is simply up to how you wish to renovate it. But this process should not be handled lightly. Renovating a basement is a big job and requires intricate planning, but with the help of Straight-Line Construction, your newly remodeled basement will look great. We provide our basement renovation services for homeowners across Suffolk County and Long Island.
A good way to start any basement renovation project is by planning and making a sketch and scale drawing. This can be used for the incoming contractors, as well as any inspectors you may have. These plans should include wall dimensions and window and door sizes. Depending on the size of the area and the code of the zoning, different size windows and doors may be required. Another measurement to keep in mind is the future finished ceiling height and/or low-hanging pipes or ducts that may lower the headroom in the basement.
While in the basement renovation planning stages, you also must deal with whether or not you have a wet basement. Check for condensation. If you have problems, they, too, need to be remedied before moving forward with the renovation. It is pointless to spend money on a new or remodeling basement and not take these precautions. They will save you lots of money down the line if shored up before a whole new basement is created. Better to be safe, than sorry. When you turn to the pros at Straight-Line Construction of Long Island, your basement renovation project will go off without a hitch!
Acquire A Permit
Getting a permit is also a common step, as many renovated basements need approval by the town, This permit will help guide you through some issues. Once you think you have everything sufficiently planned, then get everything out of the basement and start prepping. This requires you to use spray foam or caulk to plug gaps in framing and masonry, Essentially, it is your final chance to seal possible air leaks from the outside, since new walls are usually put up in this process.
