Once you’ve decided to take on the basement remodeling project, there are some major basement finishing phases you’ll have to do.
Let’s check them out.
Building the basement frames is the starting point. Your contractor will ensure that all walls begin to go up and the rooms take shape. Another thing that is done in this phase is ensuring HVAC runs, gas lines, water lines, etc. are all framed.
2. Electrical work and plumbing work
Once the framing is complete, electrical and plumbing work begins. An electrician will ensure:
- All outlet boxes and switches are located in areas of your interest as the client.
- To Install all lights as per your desire whether recessed or vanity lights.
- To run all wires to the box locations.
Once you’ve tackled electrical work for the basement, plumbing can be a little bit easier. During plumbing, you want to make sure that:
- Water runs to the bathroom, that is the toilet, the shower, and the vanity sink
- If there’s a wet bar, then run water lines there too
When all electrical and plumbing work for the basement is done, the next thing you may need to do is to call a city inspector to review if the work that has been done is up to code and from there you can proceed with the remaining work.
Once drywall goes up, the room takes its shape and you’re almost nearing the end of your basement remodeling. After the drywall, your drywallers will start the texturing process in which the final finish is applied.
The last thing is to call your carpenters for trim out in order to install all the doors and door casings, cabinetry, and your baseboard. With these the woodwork for your basement is complete.
