1,900sqFt Basement Finish Remodel in Madison, NJ 07940

FULL PROJECT DETAILS & PHOTOS: http://craftprocontracting.com/blog/basement-finish-madison-nj-07940/
This unfinished basement belonged to a young and growing family of five with two baby twin girls and a little boy who liked to play baseball with me on my lunch breaks. He's got a killer swing, so keep an eye out for an MLB heavy-hitter out of Madison, NJ in ten years and remember you heard it here first. The unused space was turned into an entertainment/bar room when CraftPro was brought in. We supplemented the homeowner's framework (which was already pretty well done), installed extruded polystyrene foamboard insulation between the framing and against the masonry, hung mold-resistant drywall on the ceiling and walls and around the duct-work, installed base-molding and other trim throughout the basement, and finally painted it all. Now all this handy homeowner has to do is re-face the bar, perform some other small tasks, and hire a flooring contractor and bathroom expert to finish this basement. The ceiling was left un-insulated in order to let the house "breathe": allowing hot air to rise to the upper floors. The result: saved energy expenses, more living space for this growing family, less unused storage space, and an overall good investment (Remodeling Magazine is now saying that the ROI on basement finshings in our region is over 70%, but it will likely be much higher on this home due to our affordable pricing). This customer was excellent to work with and even a talented DIYer such as himself knew the importance of hiring a pro for the finish work.
